She's just turned 17 years old (her birthday is on July 4), although in another year, or so, she'll be off to college, where she'll have to settle on a major, and it just might be cinema. Last year, the first daughter worked as a production assistant on the set of Halle Berry‘s Steven Spielberg-produced sci-fi series “Extant,” which returned for a second season this summer. A year later, Malia has reportedly landed another internship - this time on the set of Lena Dunham's hit HBO series "Girls," also working as a Pa (production assistant). Lots of photos, like the collage above (courtesy of Daily Mail UK), can be found online. She still has one more year to go at the private »

The verdict is in: Alicia will soon be guilty of having her sexual needs met.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan is joining The Good Wife in the series-regular role of Alex, a calm and experienced hourly investigator whom Julianna Margulies’ Alicia hires (presumably) to work at her new firm, CBS confirms.
Although there’s no official confirmation that Alex and Alicia will mix pleasure with business, it’s a logical leap to take — especially in light of Matthew Goode’s departure as »
Perpetually outraged conservatives, hold on to your hats: Malia Obama, daughter of Barack, is interning with Lena Dunham, creator of the licentiously liberal show Girls, which has been corrupting our youth for four seasons. According to the Root, Malia, who turns 17 today (on America’s birthday!), has been seen on the the show's Williamsburg set “delivering coffee for the cast and crew and helping block the public from entering scenes during shoots,” which is probably a lot easier when you're flanked by armed Secret Service agents. The First Daughter previously worked as a production assistant for Halle Berry’s CBS show Extant and aspires to become a filmmaker, according to her mother, who described Malia as a movie lover and voracious reader, like her father. »

Last year Amazon Prime released their biggest television project to the masses. That show was Extant and starred Academy Award Winner Halle Berry as Molly Woods, a female astronaut, whom after returning from a year long solo space mission found herself pregnant. Meanwhile her husband John, played by Goran Visnic was hard at work designing a new form of artificial intelligence, known as a ‘Humanic’. The result was Ethan, played brilliantly by Looper’s Pierce Gagnon, a robot child that Molly and John were raising as there own.
As the series progressed it was revealed that Molly’s baby was of course alien in origin and Molly found herself desperately trying to save her hybrid child form government officials, whilst still trying to keep Earth safe from invasion. If you haven’t seen the show »

Add Malia Obama's name to the cast and crew of "Girls" -- but before Potus has a heart attack ... she's not starring in the racy show ... just interning for the summer. President Obama's firstborn -- who turns 17 on Saturday -- was seen hanging Thursday on the Brooklyn set ... though she hardly seemed to be breaking a sweat. According to the photo agency, Malia's scored her 2nd TV gig in as many years ... working with Lena Dunham's crew. »

Last summer, CBS had high hopes for Extant but the show didn't do very well in the ratings. They renewed it (in part becuase of a streaming deal with Amazon) but a lot of changes were made behind and in front of the camera. Were the changes a good idea? Will Extant be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
Extant, began when astronaut Molly Woods (Halle Berry) returned to Earth after a year-long solo mission in outer space. Her reunion with her family is thrown into turmoil when it's learned that she's pregnant. This season, the cast includes Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Pierce Gagnon, Grace Gummer, and David Morrissey.
The higher a show's ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better its chances for survival. New ratings data will be added as it becomes available -- typically around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see »
“Big Brother” helped CBS capture Wednesday’s ratings race in key categories, but the network got little help from sci-fi drama “Extant,” which returned with low numbers. Overall viewership levels was down across the board heading into the long holiday weekend.
According to preliminary national estimates, the Halle Berry-fronted series averaged a 0.7 rating/3 share in adults 18-49 and 5.2 million viewers overall in the 10 p.m. hour, placing third among ABC, CBS and NBC in the demo and establishing a series low. The show bowed with a solid 1.6 demo rating and 9.58 million viewers overall in July of last year but fell off sharply from there, valleying with a 0.8 in 18-49 and 4.64 million total viewers with its penultimate episode. It was a surprise when CBS opted to renew it, though that’s largely due to a deal with Amazon that helps make the show profitable for the network regardless of the ratings. »

It’s not unusual for a show to make tweaks between seasons, but CBS’ summer sci-fi series “Extant” underwent an extreme makeover for Wednesday’s second season premiere.
Only three of last season’s seven full-time regulars are still with the show (leading lady Halle Berry as astronaut Molly Woods, Pierce Gagnon as her robo-son, Ethan, and Grace Gummer as partially robotic scientist Julie Gelineau), while season one’s male lead, Goran Visnjic, has been replaced by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Entire subplots have been dropped, and the show’s perspective is shifting away from the realm of science, to a pulpier, more action-driven, vibe.
There’s no doubt many of these changes are the result of underwhelming ratings — after bowing to 9.6 million viewers and a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demo, the first season averaged 6.2 million viewers and a 1.1 in 18-49.
They’re also the vision of new showrunners Elizabeth Kruger »

Extant‘s Season 2 premiere falls back on the age-old cautionary tale: While the astronaut’s away, the robotics pioneers will play!
Ok, that’s not the most important takeaway from the CBS drama’s season opener, which finds Halle Berry’s Molly confined to a psychiatric institution in the wake of some very terrible events. But her husband John’s affair stings nonetheless, especially given the way his involvement in the story ends during the course of this episode. (At least the clues to his infidelity were well-laid —apparently, just like Julie! — last season.)
Oh, and the aliens are still out for us. »
One episode was provided for review purposes prior to broadcast.
Picking up six months after the events of last year’s finale, CBS’ Extant decides one thing within the first few moments of its second year: do everything again. Revisit the strife between Molly (Halle Berry) and husband John Woods (Goran Visnjic), but make it bigger; re-do the we-may-lose-Ethan plot, but make it permanent; re-establish Molly as a brilliant scientist, but bring back the slight frayed edges of her psyche lost once the first season cemented her fears as reality. Season 2 succeeds in some departments with this redux angle — especially in a character that gets offed from nearly word go — but it doesn’t fix the show’s most glaring issue: it’s just not intriguing enough.
Season 1 started on such a high point, introducing a near-future full of weird trash cans and talking homes alongside two dueling plots that »

The CBS mystery thriller Extant, about female astronaut Molly Woods (Academy Award winner Halle Berry), is back for Season 2. Having discovered that she has unwittingly put the human race on a path to destruction, Molly and Jd Richter (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a roguish womanizer and mercenary/bounty hunter who has his own doubts about what’s really going on, may be the only hope for survival. [caption id="attachment_480319" align="alignright" width="237"] Image via CBS[/caption] At a press day for the re-booted show’s new season, actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about how he just couldn’t turn down Halle Berry and executive producer Steven Spielberg, when it came to signing on for this show, what appealed to him about this character, playing the everyman on a show with future tech, the fun dynamic between Molly and Jd, the appeal of a shorter season, and how much he loves working with Halle Berry. »

CBS drama “Zoo” unleashed some decent ratings in its premiere Tuesday, a night otherwise dominated by the end of the Women’s World Cup match between USA and Germany on Fox and then NBC reality shows “America’s Got Talent” and “I Can Do That.”
Nielsen will issue reliable total-viewer estimates later today, but the World Cup semifinal averaged a strong 3.3 rating/13 share in adults 18-49 and 9 million viewers overall on Fox’s stations from 8 to 9. Team USA’s prior game, against China on Friday, averaged a 1.9 rating in 18-49 and 5.6 million total viewers on the net’s stations from 8 to 9:30 p.m., which translated into a 2.0 demo rating and 5.74 million total viewers in the nationals. Fox this Sunday will air coverage of the tournament’s championship match between USA and either England or Japan.
Fox followed soccer with the sports-themed special “Beat the Champions” (1.1/4 in 18-49, 2.7 million viewers »

As if ruining Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve wasn't enough, director Garry Marshall has set his sights on taking down another holiday with a star-studded movie featuring insipid, loosely-connected stories.
Deadline reports Marshall is helming "Mother's Day," with Julia Roberts on board to star. Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, and Jason Sudeikis are in talks to join her. The film will tell "intertwining stories about the lives of several mothers as the title holiday approaches." Ugh. What did mothers ever do to you, Garry?
If you recall, Marshall has wreaked this havoc before with "Valentine's Day," which also starred Roberts (as well as Bradley Cooper and Taylor Swift), and "New Year's Eve" with Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, and Zac Efron. The former has an 18 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes; the latter has 7 percent.

Fans of CBS’ “Extant” might be in for a surprise with the season two premiere, and we’re not just talking about star Halle Berry’s hairstyle. In fact, Jeffrey Dean Morgan — who joins the cast of the futuristic thriller this year as a cop whose methods are a bit old school — went so far as to tell members of the press that this year was a reboot.
Morgan spoke to Variety about the part that got him back on broadcast television, making believable science fiction dramas and the similarities between himself and his character (note: It’s not a coincidence that the character’s named Jd).
You play a character who is in the future but, because of his career choice, is still rooted in the past.
He’s a throwback. He’s a guy who’s going kicking and screaming into the future, much like myself. I’m a bit of a luddite. »

The Season 2 premiere of Halle Berry space thriller “Extant” on CBS seems to set up the Oscar winner to tell a more Earth-bound tale of government conspiracies and pedestrian alien threats. Berry’s formerly high-flying astronaut Molly Woods, the victim of an alien sexual assault in Season 1, saved the planet along with her advanced-artificial intelligence son Ethan (Pierce Gagnon) in the first season finale. What goes up must come down Molly learns after returning to Earth. Ethan safely tucked his consciousness away in a cloud — the hackers’ delight, not the fluffy, sky-bunny type — after he blew up the alien »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Halle Berry was supposed to be on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Tuesday night to promote tonight's premiere of "Extant" Season 2. But she canceled, apparently not feeling well, which Jimmy said was a particular blow to Guillermo, who was looking forward to seeing her. So they did a little sketch where Jimmy broke the news to his sidekick, and a lot of slapping ensued. Kathy Griffin filled in for Halle Berry, who "hurt her back" (Kathy's air quotes). Jimmy said he called Kathy Tuesday afternoon as a last-minute fill-in. Kathy took the opportunity to shade Halle a teensy bit and promote her 80-city tour. Rob Corddry, who is on the new show "Ballers, »

I've been giving it a lot of thought, and I've come down to one of two conclusions: Either someone at CBS is very, very scared of the future, or someone at CBS is playing a very, very elaborate practical joke on us. Either way, I love it. Within a one-week span, CBS will have launched its summer lineup of original dramas: "Under the Dome" kicked off its third season last Thursday, "Extant" Season 2 begins tomorrow, and newcomer "Zoo" premieres tonight. Each show features a high-concept premise, decent-enough production value and a more-than-competent cast of television pros (plus Oscar-winner Halle Berry). Each show is also, by and large, completely insane. Read More: Watch: CBS' 'Zoo' Trailer Goes Wild and Crazy (Hopefully In a Fun Way) That is, by CBS' standards. Because here's what's so crazy about it: Of all the broadcast networks, CBS probably has the best defined brand; a brand that also inspires. »
