Both shows pulled in an average of 2.5 million viewers and The Have and Have Nots, which aired it's season’s finale, pulled in alone 3.5 million viewers.

Manish Dayal (“The Hundred-Foot Journey”) is attached to star in the New York-set boxing story, “Uppercut,” penned by Black List writer Neeraj Katyal (“The Amazing Adventures of the Monogamous Duck”).
In the wake of “Hundred-Foot” finding success at the global box-office, Dayal expressed his passion for “the sweet science” to New York-based producer Atit Shah (“A Conspiracy on Jekyll Island”). Longtime friends, Dayal and Shah, subsequently began putting the project together via Shah’s Create Entertainment banner.
Dayal will play Shiva Singhavi, a young boxer raised in the blue-collar, Queens neighborhood of Jackson Heights. As he moves up the ranks of fighters, Singhavi struggles to navigate the gritty underworld of fixed fights, grimy gyms, and dirty cops. Racial tensions escalate following a shooting that Shiva is the sole witness to, and the street-smart athlete soon finds himself caught between a police force that protected him and the community that raised him. »

The SXSW Film Festival has always been a launching pad for women in Hollywood — it’s where Lena Dunham premiered “Tiny Furniture” in 2010, and “Girls” in 2012; where 2011’s “Bridesmaids” debuted; and where Brie Larson became a star in 2013’s “Short Term 12.”
But this year’s SXSW had more girl power than ever before, from the female-driven comedies “Trainwreck” and “Spy,” to the work of breakout directors like Hannah Fidell (“6 Years”) and Shannon Sun-Higginson (“Gtfo: A Documentary About Women in Gaming”). As Hollywood still has a weak track record of putting women in front of and behind the camera — last year, women directors made only 4.6% of studio films — it’s still a question if emerging talent at festivals like SXSW and Sundance can cross over into the mainstream. “Since the industry is run by men, men have a tendency to want to make stories about themselves,” Sally Field told Variety. »

Common says a simple misunderstanding caused him to shun a high-five from Oprah Winfrey at the Academy Awards. The rapper-turned-actor won the award for Best Original Song for 'Glory' - his collaboration with John Legend - but failed to celebrate the moment with 'Selma' producer Oprah because he was too caught up in the moment. Recalling the moment - which caused a buzz on social media - Common said: ''Oprah had her hand up to give me a clap - I thought she was giving John a clap so I went past her hand and went to [Selma actor] David Oyelowo. They created a big hype about it. Oprah is someone who I love dearly so I have nothing but reverence for her. ''I talked to her the next day and I don't think she even knew that happened. This is a billion-dollar woman! Do you think she cares if I »
