Blue Bloods: Season Five Ratings

18 October 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last season, the ratings for Blue Bloods rose when compared to the previous season. Will they continue to rise or will they fall. Will this CBS show be renewed for a sixth season or will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.

Blue Bloods revolves around the Irish-American Reagan family and their work as part of the NYPD. The cast includes Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, Will Estes, Len Cariou, Amy Carlson, Sami Gayle, Vanessa Ray, and Marisa Ramirez.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

Archer to Re-Reboot and 25 Spoilers for Season 6

11 October 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

After breaking away from the original concept to explore a world of drug cartels and ‘80s references in season five, FX’s Archer returns to the spy game when the show comes back in January. During a panel at New York Comic Con, it became evidently clear that Vice is very much in the past — though the departure did earn the series its first Best Animated Series Emmy nomination — when FX screened the first episode. The cast also shared some spoilers that made us antsy for the return of the series.

1. No more Isis — for obvious news-related reasons

2. Cyril Figgis wants a role in the parenting of Abigene

3. The lack of cocaine means the return of Pam’s full figure

4. A reference to Brett Bunsen in the first episode (Rip, Brett)

5. Milton the toaster

6. Christian Slater returns as Slater and he will cause problems for Archer (He’s very well drawn, »

‘Shark Tank,’ ’20/20′ Score for ABC on Friday; All Nets Get Big DVR Lifts for Monday Premieres

27 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC has won the opening Friday of the season in key demos behind an expanded “Shark Tank” and newsmag “20/20,” while CBS’ “The Amazing Race” looked soft on its new night but the net still won with ease in total viewers.

Also released Saturday by Nielsen were “live plus-3″ estimates (DVR playback within three days of a premiere), which showed strong jumps for the top shows — which isn’t surprising given the number of highly anticipated premieres on the night. Fox’s “Gotham” and CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” saw the biggest young-adult lifts, with the former emerging as the night’s top drama, while NBC’s “The Blacklist” had another monster lift.

Looking at Friday night’s action, a two-hour “Shark Tank” on ABC averaged a 1.8 rating/7 share in adults 18-49 and 7.1 million viewers overall from 8 to 10 p.m., winning the block in 18-49 and 25-54. It was on par »

Tom Selleck Thinks TV Dads Are Idiots, Is Not Opposed to Plastic Surgery

26 September 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Tom Selleck isn't just a man's man — he's the man's man. At 69 years old, the Blue Bloods actor is still as commanding a presence as he was back in the 1980s, when he made a name for himself as the star of the TV series Magnum, P.I. He's such a force to be reckoned with, in fact, that GQ chose him to appear in its first-ever Age Issue as one of five "modern gentlemen" talking about looking and feeling great no matter how old [...] »

Days of Past in The Future? Six 80s TV Shows ready for the big screen

11 September 2014 4:04 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It was the huge success of Brian de Palma’s The Untouchables back in 1987 that made Hollywood realise that vast amounts of money could be mined from a middle-aged audience by revisiting their childhood nights spent in front of the television. Fellow 1950s TV stalwart Dragnet arrived the same year to lesser acclaim – pairing Dan Aykroyd’s stoic Joe Friday against Tom Hanks’s impossibly-named Pep Streebeck – but the ball kept rolling.

In the 1990s, the ‘movie version of the classic 1960s TV show’ became a genre of its own. Some were huge hits (The Fugitive, Maverick), some spawned brand new franchises (Mission: Impossible, The Addams Family), some were absolute disasters (The Avengers, Wild Wild West). The best of them cooked up something fresh and new from the old ingredients, creating something with pan-generational appeal. If the recipe was right, there were huge dividends to reap.

Still Friends after all these years: the one about the 20th anniversary

3 September 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The hit sitcom may be on constant replay, but it's a joy to rediscover how genuinely funny it was. The show's creators share the secrets of its success

Here's the thing about Friends, the thing that's often forgotten in all the fuss over Jennifer Aniston's hair; the embarrassment about the fuss over Jennifer Aniston's hair; the catch-phrases ("We were on a break!", "Could you be any more annoying?"); the soap-opera plot lines (Ross and Rachel! Monica and Chandler! Er, Rachel and Joey); the great star cameos (Brad Pitt) and long-running roles (Tom Selleck, Kathleen Turner); the always awful British cameos (Tom Conti, Jennifer Saunders); and the ridiculous hoo-hah over the show's final episode. The thing about Friends is that it's funny.

But Friends is a victim of its own success and, more specifically, its ubiquity. To mark the 10th anniversary of its final episode, and the 20th anniversary of the first episode, »

26 August 2014 7:12 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Lisa Kudrow will once again play Valerie Cherish in the revived meta-sitcom. Weve watched the new trailer, and from reality TV to rivalries, heres what wed like to happen

A new teaser for the second season of The Comeback has appeared, and in it, we see Lisa Kudrows grand guignol creation Valerie Cherish emerging from a scrum of paparazzi. On the wrong side of the velvet rope, she seems to be mouthing the words: remember me at an anonymous celebrity. Who could it be? Her good friend Tom Selleck? Vals baby girl co-star from Room and Bored, Juna (Malin Akerman), perhaps?

Its been nine years since we left Valerie, last seen high on the unexpected success of the double-vomit of her reality show. But what can we expect from the new six-part season when it begins on HBO in November?

Pierce Brosnan Was Offered The Role Of Batman But Turned It Down

20 August 2014 3:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The world knows him as Bond, but his name was almost Wayne… Bruce Wayne. As it turns out, former 007 Pierce Brosnan almost starred in Tim Burton’s Batman in 1989, but passed on the role because he felt it was too ridiculous. In a recent Reddit “Ask Me Anything” session, Brosnan was asked if he ever considered playing the iconic role. His answer may surprise you:

“Yes I did. I went and met with Tim Burton for the role of Batman. But I just couldn’t really take it seriously, any man who wears his underpants outside his pants just cannot be taken seriously. That was my foolish take on it. It was a joke, I thought. But how wrong was I?”

As we know, Michael Keaton eventually landed the role of Batman, and is still revered for that performance to this day. Other actors in contention for the role prior »

Pierce Brosnan on turning down the role of Batman

20 August 2014 2:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in the 80s, as Warner Bros. prepared to bring The Dark Knight to the screen in Tim Burton’s Batman, a number of actors found themselves under consideration for the Caped Crusader prior to the casting of Michael Keaton, inlcuding Mel Gibson, Tom Selleck, Charlie Sheen, Kevin Costner and even Bill Murray. Another name on the list was that of Pierce Brosnan, and the former Bond has spoken about his decision to turn down the role during a Reddit Ama…

Critical Mass: Most 'Expendables 3' reviews not in on the joke

15 August 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The Expendables franchise still has some muscle, but its biggest challenge moving forward might be finding new recruits that can provide the same charge for fans of 1980s action movies. In the original film, the draw was the Big Three: Sly, Arnold, and Bruce Willis together, blowing things up old-school. This time around, they’re joined by Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Kelsey Grammer, among others. (Tom Selleck, limber up.)

But the latest Expendables adventure does have a secret weapon, a scenery-chewing villain who is worth a dirty dozen or more middle-aged action stars: Mel Gibson. “Whatever you might think of Gibson, »
