America's Got Talent: Season Nine Ratings (Wednesdays)

24 July 2014 1:49 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

This talent competition continues to be NBC's top rated summer series and it's already been renewed for a 10th season. Will the ratings continue to be strong enough to justify airing twice a week? Stay tuned.

Hosted by Nick Cannon, America's Got Talent is a nationwide talent show that features a variety of single and group performers. The winner takes home a cash prize and a chance to headline a Las Vegas show. Returning as judges are Melanie Brown, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Howard Stern. Episodes also air on Tuesdays.

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 Pst. Refresh to see the »

Andy Samberg And Kit Harington Enter HBO’s 7 Days In Hell

24 July 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you were worried that Andy Samberg is on his way to being the next Adam Sandler, have no fear! He’s also taking a shot at being the next Will Ferrell. At least, that’s what it sounds like he’s going for in HBO’s 7 Days In Hell, which will feature Samberg as a “bad boy” tennis player embroiled in a seven-day long tennis match at Wimbledon.

Samberg is both starring in and had a hand in creating the “professional tennis mockumentary” alongside Girls co-writer/producer Murray Miller. The one-off HBO “event” will also feature Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington as a tennis prodigy who faces off against Samberg’s bad boy player at Wimbledon. The story, while extreme, is based in reality: a real-life tennis match between John Isner and Nicholas Mahut went on for three days at Wimbledon, back in 2010. Not content with reality, Samberg and »

Titled 7 Days in Hell, the comedy will star Samberg as a superstar tennis “bad boy” Aaron Williams and Harington as Charles Lloyd Poole, a young prodigy.

The project is based on an idea by Samberg and Murray Miller, a writer and co-executive producer on Girls. Miller will write the script, with Jake Szymanski (Saturday Night Live) directing. »

Andy Samberg Joins Sports Mockumentary '7 Days in Hell'

24 July 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Andy Samberg and Kit Harington will lead the all-star ensemble cast of HBO's upcoming sports mockumentary 7 Days in Hell.

Written by Murray Miller, best known for his work on HBO's Girls, 7 Days in Hell follows the fierce competition between two tennis rivals as they compete in an epic 7 day match at Wimbledon.

The movie actually isn't too far fetched. To date, the longest tennis match record, held on Court 18 at Wimbledon, went for 11 hours over the course of three days as John Isner and Nicolas Mahut battled it out during the 2010 Championships.

Also appearing in 7 Days in Hell are Fred Armisen, Lena Dunham, Will Forte, Karen Gillan, Howie Mandel, Soledad O'Brien (playing herself), Michael Sheen, Mary Steenburgen and June Squibb.

Andy Samberg is playing tennis superstar and bad boy Aaron Williams, while Kit Harington will play tennis prodigy and certified truck driver Charles Poole. Karen Gillan is playing a super »

Andy Samberg, Kit Harington, Lena Dunham, and More to Lead HBO Sports Mockumentary 7 Days In Hell

24 July 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

HBO is putting together a sports mockumentary project, and the network has pulled together a rather promising comedic ensemble.  Girls writer/co-executive producer Murray Miller is teaming up with Andy Samberg to create 7 Days in Hell, which is described as a mockumentary send-up of professional tennis.  Per THR, the one-off HBO Comedy Event will star Samberg as a superstar tennis “bad boy” who becomes embroiled in a seven-day tennis match at Wimbeldon with an Andy Murray-type prodigy and certified truck driver, played by Game of Thrones star Kit Harington.  The current roster also includes Fred Armisen, Lena Dunham, Will Forte, Karen Gillan, Howie Mandel, Michael Sheen, Mary Steenburgen, June Squibb, and Soledad O’Brien, who will play herself. This sounds like the kind of delightfully goofy project that’s perfect for Samberg, and I’m very curious to see how Harington’s comedic skills stack up.  No word on when the project may air, »

'America's Got Talent' Recap: Next Stop...Radio City Music Hall!

23 July 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

America's Got Talent judgement week is finally over. Next step: Radio City Music Hall -- at least for 48 talented singers, dancers, magicians, hand balancers and comedians. Did I miss any categories? 

It was a long and surprising night for viewers. Not nearly as long for us as it was for all the hopefuls sitting around the judgement auditorium waiting for Nick Cannon to call them to a lonely stage for their final shot at impressing four dour-faced judges. Okay, Heidi Klum, Howard Stern, Howie Mandel, and Mel B weren't complete sour pusses, but it was obvious they'd practiced their intimidating poker faces. For some, that made the experience down right petrifying and it showed in their performances. Ouch.  »

Comic Star Wendy Liebman Auditions on 'America's Got Talent'

23 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Wendy Liebman is my favorite standup comedian. She has been ever since I saw her first HBO special, and then her first Comedy Central special, and then her appearances on "Letterman" and "The Larry Sanders Show," and even her cameos as a star on the '90s "Hollywood Squares" with Whoopi Goldberg. She also had a Showtime special a couple years ago called "Taller on TV," and it's clear her style hasn't changed and shouldn't change: Liebman sticks to subliminal punchlines delivered with the wide smile of a kindergarten teacher. My favorite Liebman one-liner: "I'm going to my 30-year preschool reunion and I'm really nervous... because I've put on like a hundred pounds." Her style allows her to be both pithy and wicked, and she even won the American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup of 1997.  That's why it was so weird to see her audition for "America's Got Talent" last night. »

'Last Comic Standing' Recap: The Hardest Deliberation in the History of Deliberations

17 July 2014 2:06 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Are you guys ready for a little Howie Mandel? I sure am. Hopefully he'll offer up advice on how one can get a scalp to shine so brightly, but let's face it. He'll probably just focus on comedy. 

Host Jb Smoove doesn't waste any time introducing our remaining comics to their next challenge, called "Tram It All In." The challenge will focus on crowds, and thinking on your feet. Guess what our heroes will be doing? Oh yes. They'll be guiding lot tours around Universal Studios. 

Enter Howie, who makes Nikki Carr majorly excited. "It keeps getting better and better," she says with a smile. Howie has been on the scene for awhile, and says that he focuses primarily on improvising these days. Jb and Howie go over the map of Universal Studios, to help give the comics a heads up.  »

Vikings report on Chris Kluwe due shortly, in defense of Vicious, Tina Fey not making a Hocus Pocus sequel

Andrew Rannells talks to Playbill about stepping into the shoes of Hedwig after Neil Patrick Harris finishes his run, and why audiences respond so well to the show. “I think she wants what we all want. She wants to be loved and to find love. I think it’s kind of as simple as that. She compromises a lot in the name of finding love… The journey that she goes on, at least in broad strokes, is pretty universal. Anybody who is searching for something better for themselves can relate to what she goes through. She wanted something better. She wanted to get out of East Berlin. She wanted something more, and the cost of that was very high for her.” Rannells also notes what we all suspected but hadn’t seen confirmed in an interview, »

'Gremlins': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Horror Comedy Classic

7 June 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's been 30 years, but we all still remember the three rules: Don't expose them to bright light, don't get them wet, and never feed them after midnight.

"Gremlins," which opened on June 8, 1984, has been a pop culture mainstay ever since, playing often on TV, launching a number of careers, influencing countless other tongue-in-cheek horror movies, and even changing the way movies are rated.

Still, as familiar as you are with adorable Gizmo and demonic Stripe, there may be many things you don't know about "Gremlins" -- like the famous voices behind the gremlins, the in-jokes, and the film's role in the creation of the PG-13 rating. Read on for more secrets of the mogwai.

1. "Gremlins" marked the screenwriting debut of Chris Columbus, who would later go on to direct "Home Alone," "Mrs. Doubtfire," and the first two Harry Potter movies. He wrote the script as a calling card just to get noticed in Hollywood, »

[Video] 'America's Got Talent' One Act to Watch: A Talented (and Dreamy) Singer

4 June 2014 3:02 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Well folks, America's Got Talent's second night of auditions was filled with singing, acrobatting, card-tossing, motor cross stunting, praying, jumping, tapping and baby rapping. Some of the best entertainment involved our judges Heidi Klum who let a magician swipe her bra, Howie Mandel who got a cranial lobotomy via magical massage, and both Howie and Howard Stern who demonstrate their dancing prowess after mere moments of tutelage by an amazing male salsa team, David Leeman. It was good entertainment, folks, and we learned that Howie dances like Martin Short. That was a gas.

As my esteemed colleague Bill pointed out in his recap, there was considerable talent in this Agt auditi-sode. While I'm with Bill on the quality of last nights performances, I didn't think even its best selections topped the premiere's soul sister operatic singers Acte II, sympathetic singer Jaycob Curlee, and dynamic digital dancers Blue Journey. That being said, »

The big scary X's are back, along with TV's most random reality competition. You want singing? Karate? Acrobatics? A panel of judges scared out of their minds by a hostile mime? America's Got Talent had it all and more on tonight's season premiere! Judges Howie Mandel, Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, and Mel B. did plenty of arguing, a fair amount of agreeing, and seemed legitimately terrified when a disgruntled mime rushed the panel – before taking off his wig to reveal that it was, in fact, host Nick Cannon. His "Larry the Mime" act totally wins our coveted award for Scariest Performance of the Night, along with the award for Cruelest Practical Joke, and also Least Necessary Clown-Related »
