Fall TV premiere week is coming to a close, but not without the debuts of a few more new series hoping to connect with audiences. Fox's new procedural Rosewood, starring Morris Chestnut, took viewers down to sunny Miami on Wednesday night, while NBC's The Player bet big on Wesley Snipes and action in Sin City on Thursday. But were either worth the trip? Thanks to our handy ranking gallery, you already know our thoughts on the new shows, but now its your turn to weigh in. That's right, we're asking you, the viewer, to become the critic. Rosewood scored points with us for Chestnut's charm, but not much else. Coming in at No. 16 in our rankings, we felt the show was lacking in »
There's been no shortage of police dramas that feature a man and woman team solving crimes. Is there room for one more? Fox hopes so. Will Rosewood be a ratings hit or miss? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned to find out.
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.
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 »
No surprise that "Empire's" season 2 premiere was a ratings hit, drawing 16.02 million viewers according to Nielsen, making it the second most watched episode of the series thus far (the top spot belongs to last season's finale episode which drew over 17.5 million viewers). But it certainly blows away last season's premiere episode, which drew 9.9 million viewers in January. So if anyone wondered whether fans would stick around after last season, wonder no more. Now let's see if the series can repeat last season's historic feat - gaining viewers with each successive episode, earning its place as one of the most astounding runs in TV history. The show had a earned a healthy 6.5 rating with viewers aged 18 to 49 years old - the most coveted demographic. And this number will grow even larger when the series gets a boost from those watching on-demand and via DVR. Meanwhile, "Rosewood" - Fox's brand new crime »

Before Wednesday’s highly-anticipated return of hip-hop soap “Empire,” Fox aired the first episode of new procedural drama “Rosewood.“ But the forensic-doctor series could already be D.O.A., according to harsh tweets about the premiere. The drama follows Morris Chestnut as Dr. Beaumont Rosewood, the top private pathologist Miami. An optimist at heart, he butts heads with the cynical detective (Jaina Lee Ortiz) he’s often tasked with working alongside.

In the premiere of Fox’s Rosewood on Wednesday, we learned what a private pathologist is and does. Many times. We even learned his fee! But is this latest wrinkle on the buddy cop/medical drama what the doctor ordered?
VideosFind Out Why Rosewood‘s Titular Doc Is ‘Obsessed With Death’
Up front, let’s acknowledge how fantastic it is to see Morris Chestnut fronting a series. The guy has paid his dues with co-starring roles on V, Legends, Nurse Jackie, and here his innate charm serves him well, seeing as Dr. Beaumont Rosewood — the “Beethoven of private pathologists” — is overflowing with swagger and style. »
I had no time to review "Rosewood," though Fienberg and I discussed it on last week's podcast. For those of you who tuned in tonight, what did you think? Did you notice that Morris Chestnut's character was a private pathologist? Did you think Chestnut and Jaina Lee Ortiz had good chemistry together, or was their relationship just a tired rehash of "Castle," "Elementary," etc., etc., etc.? Do you feel the show got enough mileage out of Rosie being a private pathologist that they didn't just make him an independently wealthy maverick coroner for the city of Miami? Did the first case interest you? Were there not enough shots of Chestnut's torso, too many, or just the right amount? How do you feel about the phrase "private pathologist"? And will you watch again? Have at it. Given how irritating I found Rosie, I don't expect to be watching additional episodes of this one, »

Films with African-American leads topped box office charts for five consecutive weeks in August and September, yet with every “Straight Outta Compton” or “War Room,” Hollywood continues to act stunned by the power of black audiences.
Analysts and distribution executives have been wildly inaccurate when predicting the opening-weekend results of these films. “Straight Outta Compton’s” $60.2 million debut was roughly $20 million more than most trade publications had predicted. “War Room,” a faith-based drama about the power of prayer, more than doubled predictions with its $11.3 million launch. And last weekend’s champ, Sony’s “The Perfect Guy,” exceeded expectations by nearly $15 million when it kicked off with $29.4 million. In each case, black audiences made up between 36% and 60% of the opening weekend crowd. Perhaps it’s time to retire the shock-and-awe charade.
The breadth and influence of African-American moviegoers is apparent on both the big and small screen. Appealing to the demographic »

With so many medical dramas on television, it seems nearly impossible for one show to stick out over the others. For an audience to stay hooked, a show must have gripping storylines and captivating characters that will entice viewers to tune in week after week. Fox’s “Rosewood” has these elements and so much more. Gorgeously shot and saturated with the vibrant colors of Miami, “Rosewood” follows Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr.; played brilliantly and humorously by veteran actor Morris Chestnut. Rosewood is a private pathologist who likes to insert himself and his unbridled knowledge about corpses into the Miami homicide department’s most troubling cases, much to the chagrin of the members of the »

At one point in Fox’s new “Rosewood,” another procedural in which medical examiners and cops team up to crack the case, “private pathology consultant” Dr. Beaumont “Rosie” Rosewood Jr. (Morris Chestnut) is told by hard-nosed Detective Annalise Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz) that he has a “love affair with death.” Unlike TV executives, he has a reason–he has some holes in his heart (and a few strokes in his past) that means he’ll be dead within the decade. But not before he trades some allegedly sparkling exchanges with the skeptical Villa. Yet another mystery series that believes tossing together an attractive. »

He’s definitely not Quincy! Morris Chestnut plays “private pathologist” Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr., who uses his own sophisticated technology and lab to perform autopsies on victims of crimes and accidents to uncover clues that the regular authorities may have missed. Sometimes the cops begrudgingly let “Rosie” help them out, knowing how good he is; other times he pretty much forces himself into a case. We are constantly reminded of how almost preternaturally good Rosewood is, and that can be a detriment at times to the show, as the character begins to come across less as confident and charming, and more … Continue reading →

There was a time when the release of a heist film with Robert De Niro would have made for one of the most interesting things of the year, and would be a surefire draw to theaters. If you mixed in a lot of other actors that could draw their own crowd (here – Dave Bautista, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Gina Carano, Morris Chestnut, and more), you’d have something of a lock.
Heist, which foregoes delusions with a genre title, has released a trailer which seems to contain undercurrents of self-doubt. It isn’t sure people are going to be interested, but thinks it has a new spin that makes the whole thing worth the trouble.
It certainly has something new to bring. Though not completely unique, the story isn’t really about the heist, but what happens after things go wrong. Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays Vaughn, who tries to rob a casino, »

The debonair Morris Chestnut first captivated audiences with his portrayal of Ricky in John Singleton’s classic film, “Boyz n the Hood”. Since then, Chestnut has been a leading man in numerous films, including the recent thriller “A Perfect Guy” alongside Sanaa Lathan and Michael Ealy. Though the 46-year old actor’s most notable roles have been in films, he also has also appeared in major television series including “Nurse Jackie” and “American Horror Story”. Fox’s new medical dramedy “Rosewood” will show a very different side of the generally more serious actor. Chestnut will star as Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr., a private pathologist with a penchant for finding clues about the dead and who »

Following his highly successful role in Guardians Of The Galaxy, former WWE Champion Batista (Dave Bautista) has been expanding his reach in Hollywood. His next role features the former professional wrestler starring alongside one of the film industry’s most legendary actors, Robert De Niro.
In the upcoming film Heist, Batista plays a character named Cox, a burglar who attempts a big-time robbery against Pope (De Niro’s character). Pope is a mob boss who a group of burglars are attempting to take down. The robbery goes sour, forcing Cox and his partner Vaughn (Jeffrey Dean Morgan of Supernatural) to go on the run, hijacking a city bus in the process. Shoot-outs and action galore are the result.
