Extant Gets New Timeslot
Just three weeks into its freshman season, Extant’s ratings are causing some concern for CBS. The network believes that the show might have a better chance picking up viewers at 10 p.m. following a Criminal Minds rerun, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Extant has been trying to feed off a lead-in from Big Brother, however the series is only getting about half of Big Brother’s rating.
Extant’s premiere had 9.6 total viewers and a 1.6 rating with adults aged 18-49. It’s third episode, however, had only 6.5 million viewers in the key demographic and a rating of 1.1.
After taking a hit in the ratings in its third outing last week, CBS’ Halle Berry-fronted sci-fi drama “Extant” is moving back an hour, starting this week. The move will enable the show to avoid going head-to-head with summer’s No. 1 show, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”
“Extant,” which had been airing Wednesdays at 9 p.m. behind “Big Brother,” will swap timeslots with repeats of “Criminal Minds.” The vet drama will now air at 9 p.m., its regular fall timeslot anyway, and will serve as a lead-in for “Extant.”
While “Big Brother” is a strong demo performer for CBS, it hasn’t always meshed well with scripted programming behind it, and the Eye would like to see how “Extant” fares with a more compatible — scripted drama — lead-in.
CBS tried a similar timeslot switch earlier this month with its Sunday dramas — and it has paid off. The new “Reckless, »

CBS’ out-of-this world drama “Extant” is moving out of its timeslot. Beginning Wednesday, the series — which stars Halle Berry as an astronaut who returns from a 13-month solo mission mysteriously pregnant — will shift from its 9 p.m. timeslot to 10 p.m., with repeats of “Criminal Minds” serving as a lead-in.

CBS is hoping Extant will fare better in a later time slot. Three weeks into its freshman season, the network has decided to shift its pricey Halle Berry drama from 9 to 10 p.m. on Wednesdays. The later hour has been good for fellow summer drama Under the Dome, albeit less so this season, but the current Big Brother lead-in has clearly not been doing Extant any favors. After a strong debut with total viewers (9.6 million) and a relatively soft showing with adults 18-49 (a 1.6 rating), its latest episode clocked just a 1.1

The Boyfriend Experience: Foner’s Directorial Debut a Derivative Shard
Screenwriter Naomi Foner makes her directorial debut with Very Good Girls, though her preceding reputation makes this sedimentary, uninspired film even more surprising. Mother of actors Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, Foner penned several of ex-husband Stephen Gyllenhaal’s more notable titles, such as Losing Isaiah (1995) and A Dangerous Woman (1993). Considering the authoritative, complicated, and resilient female characters portrayed famously by the likes of Jessica Lange, Halle Berry, and Debra Winger, this trifling and tedious story of a late adolescent friendship tested by mutual attraction to the same boy seems born from the pen of a novice writing about her only familiar focal point,

This review contains spoilers.
Three episodes in, things aren’t quite as action-packed in the world of Extant, though they are definitely still pretty to look at. This week, events have slowed down and, though Dr Molly Woods is still struggling with her situation, it’s time to do some reflecting and even celebrating. Her belated birthday party and Ethan’s introduction to the first real test of his humanity - the first day of school - are good opportunities to pause and look around at what has happened... though what you think you see might not actually be happening.
Okay, so it’s still a bit convoluted, even if this week the show decelerates into expositional soap opera territory. The flashbacks »
On his educational show Through the Wormhole With Morgan Freeman, the distinguished actor helped to demonstrate the wonders of science by altering his iconic baritone with the help of a helium balloon. Tonight, he did it again, not in the name of science, but for the much more common reason that celebrities do things: because Jimmy Fallon tells them to. Sure, we expected this slavish adherence to the will of Fallon from the likes of Emma Stone or Halle Berry, but not from you, Morgan. Not from you. »

Halle Berry‘s “Extant” on CBS dipped from last week's second episode, as NBC's first Wednesday original of “America's Got Talent” led the network to a win. Following the reality show competition, NBC's “Taxi Brooklyn” rose very slightly to a high for the series. NBC was first in ratings with a 1.9 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and first in viewers with an average of 8.6 million, according to preliminary numbers. “America's Got Talent” at 8 p.m. earned a 2.3/8 and a night-high 10.1 million viewers. “Taxi Brooklyn” at 10 received a 1.1/4 and 5.6 million viewers.

Molly finally revealed her mysterious pregnancy to her husband, John, but the baby brought more fears than joy in Wednesday's episode of Extant. In the third episode, titled "Wish You Were Here," Molly's (Halle Berry) side effects of her space pregnancy were downright bizarre; she was either seeing strange circles pop up from her skin or hallucinations of Tim, the brother of her previous (and dead) boyfriend Marcus, walking around her birthday party. Only when John revealed that Tim was never present at their house did Molly realize the extent of her post-space condition. "Something is happening to me!" Molly later exclaims to John. »

Ten years ago, the cinematic bomb known as "Catwoman" hit theaters, and it was so awful, it threatened to sink Halle Berry's post-Oscar career. Audiences couldn't believe it could be that bad. It lost money, and its surprising $82 million take is far more than it deserved. Some people can't stay away from bad movies, if only out of curiosity.
The "so bad it's good" approach to movie viewing isn't for everyone, but if you enjoy wooden acting, horrendous dialogue, and schlocky special effects, then these stinkers might just be for you. Call your friends, pop some popcorn, and down some beers: Accidental comedy loves a crowd.

The knock on the Academy Awards throughout the years always seem to be how certain actors, directors and films are snubbed in favor of other chosen nominations. Sometimes the justification for these overlooked selections in performances and motion pictures are warranted. Many will agree that a lot of injustices have been committed based on how some Oscar-worthy selections were slighted.
Has anyone ever considered the equal possibilities of omission when one Oscar nominee wins the golden statuette over another nominee that one thought was more deserving for the victory? There have been numerous instances when observers who have witnessed an Oscar win thought that their competitor should have received it instead. It is only human nature to have an opinion as to feel who should have claimed Oscar gold as opposed to the fellow nominee that actually accomplished the goal.

The hot-button topic at this summer’s Television Critics Association press tour is diversity on fall TV. The question: Should CBS take a page out of ABC’s book this season?
CBS chief Nina Tassler preceded the Q&A portion of her panel by mentioning her network’s diverse line-up. That caught the ear of several critics who vocalized their concern that, unlike ABC’s Black-ish, Cristela, and Fresh Off the Boat, CBS’s comedies all appeared “extremely white.” (For the record, that’s Mom, Mike & Molly, 2 Broke Girls, Two and a Half Men, The Millers, and The Big Bang Theory. »
