RelatedRosewood Scores Full-Season Order
TVLine has an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Taye Diggs‘ arrival on the Fox drama (Wednesday, 8/7c) — the Private Practice alum is playing “one of Rosewood’s old college chums,” Dr. Mike Boyce — and as you might imagine, things get real steamy real quickly.
“Mike has this rugged sort of vibe, very smooth,” Jaina Lee Ortiz says of Diggs’ character, an infectious disease specialist who immediately has eyes for Annalise. “Rosewood is very charming, but he’s the cheesy charming, and Mike is the sort of, »
Fresh off his stint on Broadway, in the title role in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," which is now closed, Taye Diggs, seemingly with some spare time, has joined the cast of Fox's freshman crime/medical drama series "Rosewood," which stars Morris Chestnut. Diggs has booked a recurring role, playing a Dr. Mike Boyce, a famous infectious disease doctor who also happens to be the best friend of Chestnut’s Rosewood. In a somewhat similar set-up to what happens in "The Best Man," their long-time friendship is tested when Rosewood's "partner" - Jaina Lee Ortiz’s Detective Villa - gets between them, after Boyce is »

★★☆☆☆ While not entirely devoid of merit, David M. Rosenthal's trashy erotic thriller The Perfect Guy (2015) poorly imitates Fatal Attraction (1987) and Single White Female (1992), along with a hundred other examples of the genre that it has cherry-picked from. Sanaa Lathan is the suited and booted lobbyist Leah - although her character is so thin that what she does for a living is by-the-by. Leah has recently split from her boyfriend Dave (Morris Chestnut), who was unwilling to commit to marriage.

A cat-stealing, forever-texting psycho stalks businesswoman Sanaa Lathan in a disappointing thriller employing zero creativity
Related: Handsome devils: the birth of the homme fatale
A checklist of 90s thriller cliches (so tired you can almost see the cast yawning) get trotted out with a multitude of gloss yet zero creativity, in this disappointingly strait-laced Fatal Attraction knockoff. Sanaa Lathan stars as a successful businesswoman who dumps her boyfriend, played by a sleepwalking Morris Chestnut, for failing to provide her with the life she wants. In steps a boringly “perfect” replacement, a pouting Michael Ealy, who – dun dun dun – turns out to be a cat-stealing, forever-texting psycho. Rather than provide some trashy fun, this one plays it safe, choosing TV movie predictability over anything perverse. Unforgivably, he doesn’t even kill her cat.

Last year, despite the fact that the first season of Legends did very poorly in the ratings, TNT renewed it for a second season anyway.

Fox's Wednesday night drama Rosewood had a very positive debut in the ratings when it debuted back in September. But, how is the TV series doing now? Cancel or keep it for season two?
Rosewood revolves around Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr. (Morris Chestnut), a calm, collected and incredibly charismatic, pathologist. He's recruited by Miami's homicide department and partnered with tough Detective Annalise Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz). She's annoyed by his constant optimism -- until she discovers the reason. The rest of the cast includes Gabrielle Dennis, Anna Konkle, Domenick Lombardozzi, Maggie Elizabeth Jones, and Lorraine Toussaint.

TNT is billing the second season of “Legends” as having been “completely re-imagined,” and for once, that’s not just hyperbole. Having apparently recognized that Sean Bean was the program’s singular asset, the producers have developed a new, more ambitious structure that proceeds along parallel tracks, featuring two stories, one set in present-day London and the other unfolding 15 years earlier. Watching season one will help, but isn’t a prerequisite, and the whole enterprise suddenly has the darker feel of a premium cable drama, if not-fully-realized one, as opposed to a rather tepid procedural with Bean as the identity-shifting spook.
Adapted from a book, “Legends” derived its title from Bean’s central character, Martin Odum, an FBI agent who assumed different undercover identities while wrestling with uncomfortable questions about his past. Season one ended with Martin on the run for a murder he didn’t commit, while still unsure of his own history. »

A few more shows still have to bow — including CBS’ much-anticipated “Supergirl” Monday night — but a clearer picture has emerged regarding the fate of the fall frosh on the Big Four networks. ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox have each picked up at least one new show for a full season, while five series have had their episode order trimmed, effectively marking their cancellation. In years past, under-performing shows would be yanked from the schedule before the November sweep, but with audiences avoiding repeats these days, it’s unlikely the networks have anything on their bench that could fare better in the short term.
Somewhat more in limbo, meanwhile, are the handful of shows that have received an order of additional scripts. The networks would like to take this to the next level and order the production of more episodes, but will need to see something in the ratings to justify such a move. »

Updated With Finals: Fox megahit “Empire” headed into its first break of the season on a ratings uptick Wednesday, dominating the evening and drawing as many young adults as the night’s next two top shows combined. Of note in latenight, meanwhile, was a strong showing for ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” with Michael J. Fox and Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders.
TBS placed second to Fox for the night overall with its coverage of Game 4 of baseball’s National League Championship Series between the New York Mets and Chicago Cubs. The Mets’ series-clinching victory averaged a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.935 million viewers overall from 8 to 11:51 p.m. Et, according to Nielsen nationals.

From 8:45 to 9 p.m. on Wednesdays, Morris Chestnut is the man on broadcast TV — sort of. The only problem is, drama “Rosewood” has 45 other minutes to fill. Each episode, “Rosewood” ratings go up every single quarter hour — a fairly unusual phenomenon. Elsewhere, many shows are routinely flat half-hour to half-hour, and more than a handful go down. Generally, viewing levels do tend to rise throughout the 8 o’clock hour across television — the beginning of primetime — which partially helps to explain the “Rosewood” case. But more importantly, the self-starting drama builds toward something truly great: “Empire.” Also Read: 'Empire' Ratings Are. »

Rounding out the cast are Lorraine Toussaint, Gabrielle Dennis, Anna Konkle, and Domenick Lombardozzi. Below please find the Fox press release on the full season order.

About a week after Fox cut the number of episodes for "Minority Report" (the Meagan Good sci-fi series) from 13 down to 10, signaling what will likely be a non-renewal for a second season, given its lackluster ratings, the network has picked up another freshman series, "Rosewood," the medical/police procedural starring Morris Chestnut, for a full season, the network announced today. The series, which acts as a lead-in to Fox's smash hit "Empire's" on Wednesday nights, has held onto decent ratings - maybe thanks in part to "Empire" - posting a healthy debut, drawing around 7.5 million viewers. It's premiere was Fox's strongest new series debut performance this season, beating out both "Minority Report" which, as noted on this blog, drew a very disappointing 3.09 million viewers, and "Scream Queens" with just over 4 million. Chestnut plays the title character, Rosewood - as in Dr. Beaumont Rosewood - a gifted,...
