Michael McIntyre made his chatshow debut on BBC1 last night, scampering around and breaking the fourth wall – but he still respected the golden rules of presenting. So what makes a truly great host?
Michael McIntyre made his hosting debut with The Michael McIntyre Chat Show on BBC One last night, and he didn't suck. I'm not a fan of his standup, and I expected his excitable squeaking and faux-confusion about daily life to be at odds with the cool, calm control needed to front one of these shows. But somehow, appearing like a kid let loose in his dad's workplace, he made it work, and checked off many of the following rules for successful chatshow presenting.
Don't be the star
Arguably the best example of a UK chatsmith is Michael Parkinson. For decades, Parky was shorthand for an unruffled command of chat and a firm hand on the tiller; a »

I F***ing Love Science is headed to television by way of the Science Channel and Craig Ferguson. CBS’ very late night talk show host made the announcement via videotape at the I F***ing Love Science event at SXSW on Saturday, March 8 that the TV iteration of the incredibly popular Facebook page started by British biology student Elise Andrew just two short years ago (and now boasts more than 10.7 million fans) was greenlit by the cable channel in Discovery Networks’ portfolio that’s strictly for science. “If you know anything about me, you know I love science,” said Ferguson in the message. “Science has a naughty secret — it’s that all things are connected. And this show is going to explore the randomness of science. Think of it as a late night Google search that goes a hundred pages deep until things get weird — and then you just keep going. »

“I love zombies. If any monster could Riverdance, it would be zombies.”
We’re not the only ones obsessed with—ahem—The Walking Dead. Everybody seems to be in on it.
Here’s a very, very, short list of zombie movies:

Yeah, everybody loves zombies.
Everybody but me, that is. (Okay, I did love Shaun of the Dead.)
The first time I saw a zombie movie was way back when, and it was George Romero’s classic Night Of The Living Dead. Only I really didn’t see it because I was terrified and spent most of the time either cringing, »

All Arsenio Hall wants is Prince's extra time… and maybe a ratings boost from the singer. The “Kiss” singer's appearance on Hall's late night show Wednesday night provided a ratings bonanza for the syndicated offering, boosting the episode to a 1.4 rating/3 share in overnight ratings, a 56 percent jump over the show's average for the February sweep. Also read: Prince Drops Copyright Lawsuit After Backlash From Fans In the 18-49 demographic most important to advertisers, the show climbed 50 percent to a 0.6/2, virtually tying “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and besting other late-night offerings such as “Conan,” “Craig Ferguson” “Chelsea Lately” and others.

The Arsenio Hall Show got a healthy infusion of buzz on Wednesday night when the host sat down with Prince for almost the entire duration of his syndicated talk show. Story: The New Gauge of Late-Night Success Hall's late-night effort, renewed for a second season but recently a conversational afterthought with so much attention being paid to NBC's Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers, jumped 50 percent from recent averages in the key adults 18-49 demographic. That puts him ahead of much of the later and smaller cable competition (Craig Ferguson, Chelsea Lately and Conan) and actually ties

Welcome, beloved guest-to-be. Upon your check-in to The Grand Budapest Hotel on Friday, you might meet a very important attorney that goes by the name of Deputy Kovacs, who is played by Jeff Goldblum in Wes Anderson’s new caper about friendship, honor, and promises fulfilled. This week, Wamg and a few members of the press sat down (in a roundtable discussion) with Goldblum to talk about the working with Anderson, upcoming projects, and memes. Check it out below!
The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars; and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting; a raging battle for an enormous family fortune; a desperate chase on motorcycles, trains, sleds, and skis; and the sweetest confection of a love affair — all »

If NBC brass needed another message that they need to fix the disastrous Thursday primetime lineup, they got it this week. Both Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Late Night With Seth Meyers took a tumble behind the low-rated NBC primetime series on Thursday but rebounded last night. There were mitigating factors as primetime usage on Friday is generally lower. Fallon, and by extension Meyers, were helped by the fact that Jimmy Kimmel, who tightened the race significantly on Thursday night, was in a repeat. (Additionally, The Daily Show and Colbert Report air Monday-Thursday, leaving younger viewers with fewer late-night alternatives on Friday.) ABC does very well in primetime on Friday, and would Kimmel have been an original, it would have certainly complicated things for Fallon. Last night, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon drew a 3.8 rating in the metered markets, up 9% from Thursday. Late Night (2.2) shot up 29% vs. Thursday »

ABC hasn’t had much to cheer about on the ratings front in a while, but the return of its Thursday dramas changed that as “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” ruled their hours in demos. CBS still won the night behind “The Big Bang Theory,” while its timeslot flip for “The Crazy Ones” and “Two and a Half Men” produced a higher overall rating.
The Alphabet’s strong performance closing out primetime helped boost latenight’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” which featured “Scandal” star Kerry Washington and hit a season high. “Jkl” finished within striking distance of NBC’s “Tonight Show,” which saw its lowest scores to date with Jimmy Fallon.
Looking at the primetime shows in detail, ABC started slow the 8 p.m. special “Countdown to the Oscars” (1.0 rating/3 share in adults 18-49, 4.7 million viewers overall) but then surged with “Grey’s Anatomy” (3.0/9 in 18-49, 9.3 million viewers overall) and “Scandal »

That was the message delivered to advertisers at Twentieth TV’s upfront reception in Gotham Thursday night, an effort to entice advertisers to place some of their media dollars in “Celebrity Name Game,” a gameshow strip bowing this fall with Craig Ferguson at the helm, and other programs distribbed by 21st Century Fox’s syndication unit.
Ferguson’s strip hails from Debmar-Mercury and Coquette Prods., the banner headed by Courteney Cox and David Arquette. (Twentieth TV is handling national advertising sales for the show per its deal with Debmar.)
Ferguson, who will moonlight on the show from his day job hosting CBS’ “Late Late Show,” schmoozed prospective advertisers and engaged in some comedy banter with an unlikely straight man, Michael Teicher, Twentieth TV’s exec VP of media sales.
“Are you reading off of note cards?” Ferguson teased Teicher after being introduced and called to the stage at Glass Houses. »

NBC has won the first post-Olympics Tuesday in key demos behind “The Voice,” which is looking a bit softer this cycle, and good timeslot premieres for comedies “About a Boy” and “Growing Up Fisher.” Audiences, though, weren’t interested in playing ABC’s “Mind Games,” and didn’t seem all that excited for the return of Fox’s “Glee.”
CBS ran a close second to NBC in adults 25-54 and dominated the night as usual in total viewers with original dramas of its crime dramas, though they were at season lows across the board.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, the first Tuesday episode of the new season of “The Voice” averaged a 3.7 rating/11 share in adults 18-49 and 13.0 million viewers overall in the 8 o’clock hour — down from the 4.1 demo score from the comparable night a year ago (when it premiered a month later) but easily the night »

A fair share of lookee-loos are checking out the new host of Late Night on NBC — which has given Seth Meyers some promising ratings for his first two days on the job.
The second telecast of Late Night with Seth Meyers averaged a household rating of 2.2 rating/8 share in 56 metered markets, according to Nielsen ratings, which marks the franchise’s highest Tuesday performance in five years (since Dec. 23, 2008, when it scored a 2.4/7). Meyers saw a bit of a drop from his Monday premiere, when he posted a 2.6/9. Still, an 85% retention rate isn’t too shabby for the ex-SNLer.
