14 November 2014 5:10 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Just days after opting not to renew the legal dramedy "Franklin and Bash" and weeks after cancelling "Dallas," TNT is axing another program - its Eric McCormack-led procedural "Perception".

McCormack played an eccentric neuroscience professor with paranoid schizophrenia who is recruited by the FBI to help solve complex cases. Rachael Leigh Cook, LeVar Burton and Kelly Rowan also starred in the series.

Currently in the midst of its third season, it has averaged 2.7 million total viewers an episode, down from an average of 4.2 million for the first season.

The last few episodes of the third season have been produced and are still expected to go to air in February.

This TV show revolves around Doctor Daniel Pierce (Eric McCormack), an eccentric and brilliant neuroscience professor. Unfortunately, his mind is also damaged and he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia.

Pierce struggles with hallucinations and paranoid delusions brought on by his schizophrenia. Oddly though, he considers some of his hallucinations to be a gift. They occasionally allow him to make connections that his conscious mind can't yet process. At other times, the hallucinations become Pierce's greatest curse, leading him to behave in irrational, potentially dangerous ways.

Still, he's recruited by FBI agent Kate Moretti (Rachael Leigh Cook) to help »

Perception: TV Show Cancelled by TNT, No Season Four

13 November 2014 9:27 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The axe keeps flying over at TNT. The cable channel already cancelled Dallas and Franklin & Bash and now, they've cancelled Perception as well. There won't be a fourth season.

Perception follows Doctor Daniel Pierce (Eric McCormack), a talented and schizophrenic neuropsychiatrist, as he assists his former student, FBI Special Agent Kate Moretti (Rachael Leigh Cook), solve complex cases. Other castmembers include Kelly Rowan, Arjay Smith, LeVar Burton, and Scott Wolf.

The show is currently in its third season. Ten of the season's 15 episodes have aired so far and have averaged 2.78 million viewers with a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That's down about 10% when compared to season two.

The 5 Best ‘Pygmalion’ Movies Since ‘My Fair Lady’

21 October 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

When the movie version of My Fair Lady premiered — 50 years ago today — it was an adaptation of a stage show that was a musical remake of a play that was loosely based on an ancient myth. Once again: “originality” is not that big a deal and never has been. Proof has continued in the legacy of all these properties in the half century since. Even now on television there is a sitcom so admittedly based on Pygmalion that the characters are named Eliza Dooley and Henry Higgs. The fact that most people call this show, Selfie, a modern take on the musical rather than George Bernard Shaw‘s earlier drama is not a surprise. Different generations have their reference point. In She’s All That, for instance, Rachel Leigh Cook’s character says, “I feel just like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. You know, except for the whole hooker thing.” She »

Falling Skies Season 4 Finale Recap: Over the Moon

A few weeks ago, when TNT’s Falling Skies indicated that our heroes were going to need to visit the moon in the name of having any chance at beating the Espheni, I had concerns.

How will they get there? And in a timely manner? Who in the 2nd Mass has anything remotely resembling training for such a journey? Will Aerosmith give the rights to “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing”? And so on.

You know how sometimes you go to Chipotle and you’re midway through having the guy build your burrito—then you realize you’ve made a terrible mistake? Maybe you should have gone for the chicken instead of the beef, or a wheat tortilla instead of white, or perhaps you finally decide you don’t even like Chipotle in the first place. This also happens to TV executives when ordering shows.

16 June 2014 6:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The TNT drama series Perception, now in its third season, follows Dr. Daniel Pierce (Eric McCormack), a unique and eccentric neuroscience professor whose paranoid schizophrenia helps him solve crimes with FBI agent and former student Kate Moretti (Rachael Leigh Cook).  To kick off Season 3, the show is set in Paris, France, where Pierce is embarking on an exciting new personal journey.  But shortly after his arrival, he is asked to help with a dangerous international case that turns into something of a spy thriller.

1990s teen movies you'll remember - and some you won't

12 June 2014 1:36 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What makes a classic? Sarah digs into the ‘90s teen genre to find the difference between an iconic movie and a forgotten one...


The 90s revival can’t be ignored any longer. The nostalgia is in full bloom right now: walk down the high street and you’ll see 90s-inspired crop tops and stonewashed denim in every shop window, while current cool kids Iggy Azalea and Charli Xcx (neither of whom were old enough to see the film at the time) have paid slavish tribute to Clueless in the video for their current single Fancy. We’ve already pillaged the ‘80s for all they were worth and now, apparently, it’s time to start excavating the 90s. No matter how old that makes us feel.

If there’s one film genre that screams “90s”, it’s the teen movie. The decade was a kind of golden age for the »
