Golden Globes: Producers Prepare For Rain and Ricky

10 January 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The venue is partly a construction zone. Security is tighter than ever because of heightened terrorism concerns. And to top it off, the weather forecast has kept producers of today’s Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton guessing about a crucial logistical concern: to tent or not to tent?

Juggling all of these factors and more is all in a day’s work for Barry Adelman, exec VP of Dick Clark Prods. who is marking his 20th year as a Globes producer.

“We’re at the mercy of the weather,” Adelman admitted as he prepped for the final 24-hour work day on the 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards.

This year’s ceremony is also at the mercy of Ricky Gervais, who is returning to Globes hosting duty for the first time since 2012. Adelman said Gervais adds a level of unpredictability that producers eagerly embrace.“There’s a sense of danger about Ricky. »

ABC Is Reviving Game-Show Classic $100,000 Pyramid

8 January 2016 3:39 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

File this under the category of Things That Are Awesome: ABC and producer Sony Pictures Television are reviving The $100,000 Pyramid, bringing back the iconic 1970s and '80s game show as a weekly prime-time series. Vulture has learned that former NFL superstar Michael Strahan (Live! With Kelly and Michael) will serve as host of the reincarnated classic, which is expected to get a ten-episode run on ABC this summer. Strahan steps into the shoes of late broadcasting legend Dick Clark, who hosted most incarnations of Pyramid during its peak (from 1973 until 1978). Save for a few specials (including 1979’s All-Star Junior Pyramid), Pyramid has heretofore always aired either in daytime, on cable, or as an early-evening syndicated show. The 2016 model will be the first time Pyramid has aired as a regular prime-time network show. Despite the time-slot upgrade, the basic format of the show is expected to remain the »

Weekly Ratings: Espn Finds the End Zone With College Football, ‘Mnf’ Finale

7 January 2016 5:49 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Football dominated last week’s primetime ratings race, with Espn easily winning among the networks thanks to its College Football Playoff semifinals — even if both games tumbled in the event’s second year — and a season-high total-viewer count for the finale of “Monday Night Football.” NBC, meanwhile, stayed on top in demos on the broadcast side as “Sunday Night Football” towered over the field as it ended its season.

According to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates for the Dec. 28-Jan. 3 frame, Espn averaged a 2.6 rating in adults 18-49 to easily best NBC (1.8), CBS (1.2), ABC (1.0) and Fox (0.9). The only other network to log a higher weekly average in the past two months has been NBC during Thanksgiving week (3.2), when it aired two primetime NFL contests. NBC, meanwhile, was the top broadcaster in the demo for the 14th time in 15 weeks this television season.

Espn also scored a victory in total viewers, »

Golden Globes Grow More Worldly on TV Front

5 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Golden Globes were conspicuously elevated to a new level in the mid-1990s, when Dick Clark sold NBC on the broadcast rights, causing ratings to soar and the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.’s critics to grudgingly accept its influence. Yet in terms of recognizing creativity, the awards have come into their own, in part by embracing a more global view, at a time when some of entertainment’s old barriers and prejudices — even in television — are breaking down.

The movie industry, certainly, has awoken to the fact that its lens can no longer be confined to the U.S. That’s especially true in regard to movies that, admittedly, don’t carry much awards prestige, since Transformers blowing stuff up translates pretty easily into any language.

Television, however, has traditionally been deemed both smaller in scale and more culturally specific. Americans, moreover, were seen as being resistant to international fare, »

Espn’s College Playoff Ratings Drop 36% on New Year’s Eve

1 January 2016 1:37 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Disney television networks ABC and Espn dominated the New Year’s Eve ratings race, but viewership for the cable network’s college football semifinal games predictably tumbled on a night not typically reserved for marquee sports action. The Alphabet remained the clear late-night choice for ball-dropping festivities, and seemed to pick up some viewers from the lopsided pigskin contest between Alabama and Michigan State.

In Nielsen’s metered markets, the College Football Playoff games on Espn averaged a 9.8 household rating — down a steep 36% from a 15.5 average last year when the games were played on New Year’s Day. Thursday’s contest between Clemson and Oklahoma, which began at a time when a chunk of the potential viewing audience in the Western part of the country was still at work, averaged a 9.7 from roughly 4:10-7:50 p.m. Et, and Michigan State-Alabama pulled a 9.9 from roughly 8:20-11:40 p. »
