The Millers: CBS Sitcom Cancelled Midway Through Season Two

15 November 2014 12:01 AM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

CBS has pulled the plug on one of their family comedies but it's not the one you'd expect. They haven't cancelled The McCarthys yet but have dropped The Millers after four airings into its second season.

Set in Leesburg, Virginia, The Millers follows a local TV news reporter (Will Arnett) who's been hiding his recent divorce from his parents. When they hear the news, his dad (Beau Bridges) his mom (Margo Martindale) are inspired to separate and each move in with their kids. The rest of the sitcom's cast includes J.B. Smoove, Jayma Mays, Nelson Franklin, Lulu Wilson, and Sean Hayes.

Debuting last fall, The Millers aired on Thursday nights and greatly benefitted from having The Big Bang Theory as a lead-in. The comedy's ratings were very good -- but a large percentage of viewers tuned out between the two programs. It averaged a 2.6 »

CBS Yanks The Millers During Its Second Season

14 November 2014 8:25 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Looks like that decision to add Sean Hayes didn't work out so well. CBS has decided to put the kibosh on more episodes of The Millers, a family sitcom that starred Will Arnett as a divorced news guy with a pair of nutty parents, played by Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges. The comedy has hobbled along on Mondays despite the addition of Hayes, the star of last year's failed sitcom Sean Saves the World. An original episode of the comedy will run Monday, but it seems unlikely the network will air what's left in the can.CBS may eventually fill »

Fall’s Comedy Bloodbath Points to TV’s Overpopulation Problem

14 November 2014 8:13 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When CBS cancels “The Millers” just five episodes into its second season, you know comedy is hard this fall.

CBS wanted “The Millers” (pictured) to work in the worst way. The Eye and its sibling CBS Television Studios have been dying to field a big fat comedy hit that CBS owns outright in order to reap syndication riches, as other studios have enjoyed off the back of CBS hits. But comedies are clearly overshadowed on the overstuffed TV dial these days by dramas and unscripted series that are often an easier sell to audiences that need a distinct reason to proactively find the show in a sea of choices.

CBS invested megabucks to bring one of the most in-demand comedy showrunners, Greg Garcia, into CBS TV Studios. “The Millers” was the first major byproduct of that overall deal. The show was stocked with veteran thesps — Will Arnett, Margo Martindale and »

CBS cancels 'The Millers' early in Season 2

14 November 2014 7:37 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It didn't take long for "The Millers" to go from a freshman "success" -- quotation marks necessary -- to a second year cancellation for CBS. CBS pulled a minor shocker in this week's Friday Evening News Dump, canceling "The Millers" after only four episodes aired in the second season.  It's a slightly odd cancellation, though. "The Millers" is still airing this Monday (November 17) night's episode, with the appropriately grave title "Diggin' Up Bones." In addition, production will apparently continue for at least one more week before ending. Created by Greg Garcia and starring Emmy nominee Will Arnett and Emmy winners Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges, "The Millers" premiered to over 13 million viewers last October and was still drawing just under 10 million viewers by its May finale. Everybody knew that those numbers were basically propped up by its "Big Bang Theory" lead-in, but as a CBS Television Studios production, the comedy »

CBS Cancels ‘The Millers’

14 November 2014 7:09 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS has pulled the plug on Will Arnett’s “The Millers” a few episodes into its sophomore season, Variety has confirmed.

The comedy will air a new episode on Nov. 17, but no scheduling decisions have been made beyond that point. After a move to Mondays behind “Two Broke Girls,” the multicam laffer has slipped to series lows in the ratings (its latest airing notched a paltry 1.5 in the adults 18-49 demo) and provides no boost to freshman drama “Scorpion,” which airs at 9 p.m.

Though the show is produced by CBS Television Studios, it seems CBS lost patience with “The Millers” as its flagging ratings proved a detriment to “Scorpion,” which CBS sees has a promising contender to have longevity. The Eye has a new season of “Mike and Molly” on the bench as a potential replacement, along with midseason comedy “The Odd Couple,” or ever-reliable reruns of “The Big Bang Theory. »

CBS Cancels "The Millers" Early

14 November 2014 3:50 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In an unexpected move, CBS has cancelled its comedy series "The Millers" part way into its second season.

The network made the decision late Friday afternoon and production is being shut down immediately. This coming Monday's episode will still air, beyond that it appears to be done and over. No word yet as to what will take its place.

The sitcom boasted a trio of great actors - Will Arnett, Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges - but suffered from poor reviews, mostly to do with the material.

The show also lost its prime post-"Big Bang Theory" timeslot this season, moving instead behind "2 Broke Girls" where it has struggled in the ratings and pulled in just a 1.5 rating and 6.5 million viewers despite having a major lead-in from new drama "Scorpion".

The Millers: Season Two Ratings

11 November 2014 12:28 PM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

This show was CBS' highest-rated new series of the 2013-14 season. Will The Millers continue to be a ratings success for the network? Cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.

Set in Leesburg, Virginia, The Millers follows a local TV news reporter (Will Arnett) who's been hiding his recent divorce from his parents. When they hear the news, his dad (Beau Bridges) his mom (Margo Martindale) are inspired to separate and each move in with their kids. The rest of the sitcom's cast includes J.B. Smoove, Jayma Mays, Nelson Franklin, Lulu Wilson, and Sean Hayes.

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 »

For the cover shoot that brought the crew together, Al Roker from Today spoke to the cast and director about their memories of the film, including just what exactly was in Slimer's ectoplasmic goo. The cast has spent the last few months exploring Ghostbusters' place in both film and New York City's history, »

'Masters of Sex' showrunner teases Masters and Johnson's 'cuckoo' lives after fame

28 September 2014 8:15 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Masters of Sex's second season found Masters and Johnson exploring sexual dysfunction (including Bill's), Libby Masters getting involved with St. Louis' racial politics, and the show entering the Kennedy era. In the final scene of the season, against the backdrop of the JFK's inauguration, Masters (Michael Sheen) and Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) are resolutely moving forward with their work, but not without having endured a series of personal and professional failures of a sort. The CBS feature about them made sex an implication rather than a focus, presenting it as squeaky clean rather than scientifically rigorous. When Bill concocted a »

Season finale review: 'Masters of Sex' - 'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised'

28 September 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Masters of Sex" has wrapped up another season. I spoke with showrunner Michelle Ashford about various decisions that went into this year's stories, and I have a review of the finale coming up just as soon as I have all the gravitas of a toothpaste commercial... "God, what if you just let go of everything you thought your life would be? What if we both did? What then?" -Libby Season 1 of "Masters of Sex" built to a very public display of Bill and Virginia's work that got an ugly reception, followed by Bill being open about his feelings to Virginia. For a while, season 2 seemed like it was building to a parallel of that with the taping of the CBS News segment, but instead "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" is the opposite of last year's finale. Bill conspires to kill the CBS feature before it can air because he's paranoid of repeating history, »

Masters of Sex wrapped Season 2 Sunday night with two surprise comebacks (Barton! Ethan!), a shocking betrayal (Bill sabotaged the CBS story and unwittingly played a role in Virginia losing her kids!), and a big turning point with regard to Bill and Virginia’s work (they’re gonna start passing on their sex knowledge to couples like Lester and Barb!).

Back in July, the Us dubbing voice cast was revealed for Studio Ghibli’s latest work, The Tale Of Princess Kayuga. Now we can see (or rather hear) their efforts in action with the latest American trailer for the film.Princess Kaguya is based on Japan’s oldest recorded narrative, The Tale Of The Bamboo Cutter. In the yarn, a man finds a tiny girl inside the stalk of a bamboo. Deciding with his wife to raise her as their own, they see her become a beautiful young woman who attracts the interest of many suitors. But she hides a secret that might affect her life... The trailer's lovely, putting the film's impressionistic art vibe front and centre.Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata took on directorial duties for this one, which features the likes of Chloë Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Darren Criss, Lucy Liu, James Marsden, Beau Bridges, Dean Cain »

14 Genre Features That Dominated Fantastic Fest

23 September 2014 11:52 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Audience Award went to Studio Ghibli entry "The Tale of Princess Kaguya," director Isao Takahata's delicately hand-drawn retelling of a classic Japanese folktale now well-voiced in English by Chloe Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Lucy Liu, Beau Bridges and more. New Ghibli films from Miyazaki will be missed, but Takahata, who directed 1988's "Grave of the Fireflies," carries the animation studio's torch with mastery. The "Next Wave" Spotlight Competition prizes were given to "It Follows," David Robert Mitchell's creepy Std horror tale that wowed Cannes Critics' Week in May 2014. Mitchell also picked up the Best Screenplay prize for his deadly serious, artful chiller that will end up topping horror geek's best-of lists at the end of the year. (Interview with David Robert Mitchell here.) Ukrainian first-timer Miroslav Slaboshpitsky was shut out of the Foreign Language Oscar for his grueling "Lord of the Flies"-like »

Watch: Trailer for Studio Ghibli's Fantastic Fest Winner 'Tale of Princess Kaguya'

23 September 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This visually splendid, hand-drawn folktale retelling features English voice-work from Chloe Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Lucy Liu, Beau Bridges, Daniel Dae Kim, James Marsden, Oliver Platt, John Cho, George Segal, Dean Cain and Darren Criss. While Ghibli films are best seen in their native language, the voicers do a fine job in this story of a girl the size of a thumb who, raised by a bamboo cutter, blossoms into a coveted princess and must choose a suitable husband. "Kaguya" delicately blends animated whimsy with classical storytelling, returning Takahata to the form of "Grave of the Fireflies" (1988) -- though that's a much more melancholy film. GKIDs distributes the film stateside on October 17. »

Watch: Ghibli's 'The Tale of the Princess Kaguya' Official U.S. Trailer

23 September 2014 6:17 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm not really the biggest fan of dubbed films, even animated films dubbed into English never feel right. So, to watch Studio Ghibli's The Tale of the Princess Kaguya in English seems as if something will be lost in the translation, not necessarily the meaning and certainly not the story, but the mood and tone can get disrupted. Yes, in the case of Kaguya a cast that includes the voices of Chloe Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Lucy Liu, Beau Bridges, Daniel Dae Kim, James Marsden, Oliver Platt, John Cho, George Segal, Dean Cain and Darren Criss has been assembled so it isn't as if director Isao Takahata's (Grave of the Fireflies) film is getting a second-rate treatment, but it nevertheless seems "wrong" to me. That said, here is the official domestic trailer for the upcoming release of the film that just won the Fantastic Fest Audience Award. »
