Premiering on Jan. 7, the series averaged 11.2 million total viewers in L+3 ratings across its first three episodes.

NBC Renews Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Shades of Blue’ for Season 2

5 February 2016 2:45 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC has picked up a second season of Jennifer Lopez’s cop drama “Shades of Blue,” Variety has learned.

Though the early renewal comes right after the show’s lowest ratings came in for its fifth episode last night, the pickup comes as no surprise, given Lopez’s star power and “Shades of Blue” still-strong performance as one of NBC’s biggest debuts in recent years.

In its first three telecasts, “Shades of Blue” averaged a 2.5 rating in 18-49 and 11.2 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen’s “live+3” estimates, standing as one of the most time-shifted programs on television during this time. Thanks in part to no competition from ABC’s “How to Get Away With Murder,” “Shades” gave NBC its first Thursday-at-10 wins with in-season regular programming over original competition on ABC and CBS since March 2010 in the demo and since March 2008 in total viewers.

28 January 2016 9:44 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Loman’s guilt and Wozniak’s paranoia put Harlee at risk on this week’s Shades of Blue entitled “What are we doing?” According to TV Guide: Tensions between Harlee (Jennifer Lopez) and Wozniak (Ray Liotta) reached a wild crescendo on last week’s episode of Shades of Blue, as his suspicions about her as the department’s FBI informant got so heated a gun was drawn. Things have cooled between them, but only slightly; in Thursday’s episode, Wozniak implores Harlee to take another risky job that’ll give them both a windfall, despite her pleas to end their dirty business.

Brett Ratner adapting story based on Goodfellas’ Henry Hill

21 January 2016 11:07 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Henry Hill's story was told in Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas - but not all of it...

The story of mobster Henry Hill was infamously told in Martin Scorsese’s stunning Goodfellas. He was played in that movie by Ray Liotta, but it didn’t cover Hill’s full story. Nor did the other movie based around Hill's life, that was released at the same time, the Steve Martin/Rick Moranis comedy, My Blue Heaven.

For as the Espn television movie Playing For the Mob charted, Hill was also involved in a scandal where he tried to fix basketball games in Boston in the late 1970s. And now there are plans to bring that story to the big screen.

Brett Ratner is linked to this one, with his RatPac Entertainment set to bring the story to the movies. It’s unclear as of yet if Ratner has earmarked »

(Spoiler alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched Thursday night’s episode of “Shades of Blue”) Ray Liotta has played plenty of tough-guys on screen, from “Goodfellas” and “Cop Land.” So far NBC drama “Shades of Blue,” in which the actor portrays NYPD Lt.

Ratings: ‘Shades of Blue’ Looks Good, ‘Angel From Hell’ Ok in Thursday Premieres

8 January 2016 9:11 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The first Thursday of the new year was a busy one on the broadcast networks, with a pair of femme-fronted series — CBS comedy “Angel From Hell” and NBC drama “Shades of Blue” — taking advantage of the absence of ABC’s tough drama lineup to open with promising results. “Shades of Blue” was the more impressive of the two, building on its “The Blacklist” lead-in and dominating an hour that has been a tough one to crack for the Peacock in recent years.

CBS won Thursday overall with its “The Big Bang Theory” towering over everything else on the night. Fox had a pretty good showing with another two-hour installment of “American Idol,” which won the night and may have helped serve as something of a lead-in for “Shades of Blue,” since both feature Jennifer Lopez.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, NBC’s “Shades of Blue,” starring Lopez and Ray Liotta, »
