You, Me and the Apocalypse: Season One Ratings

29 January 2016 12:35 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though it seems like You, Me and the Apocalypse is a mini-series, NBC seems to have gone out of their way to call it a regular series. Could there be a second season of this UK-produced TV show? How will it do in the ratings? Could it be cancelled by the peacock network and pulled before all of the 10 episodes have aired? Stay tuned.

A dramatic comedy, You, Me and the Apocalypse revolves around the last days of mankind. It's discovered that a comet is on a collision course with earth in 34 days and an unexpected chain of events is set in motion. The cast includes Mathew Baynton, Joel Fry, Pauline Quirke, Jenna Fischer, Kyle Soller, Rob Lowe, Gaia Scodellaro, Paterson Joseph, Megan Mullally, Diana Rigg, and Fabian McCallum.

Ratings: CW’s ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Holds Well in Week Two; Ok Start for NBC’s ‘Apocalypse’

29 January 2016 8:57 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC’s new hourlong comedy “You, Me and the Apocalypse” opened to credible ratings Thursday while the CW’s “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” was down just a tick from its solid premiere of the previous week. Fox again finished on top overall with a two-hour “American Idol,” while new series “Angel From Hell” on CBS and “Shades of Blue” on NBC remained pretty steady.

Among Thursday’s competition on cable was Fox News Channel’s coverage of the seventh Republican presidential primary debate of the season, which averaged an 8.4 overnight household rating, according to Nielsen. This Donald Trump-less debate rated higher than the prior Gop gathering earlier this month on Fox Business Network (7.4) but otherwise ranks as the second lowest of the cycle. Last night’s debate figures to finish in the nationals with roughly a 2 rating in adults 18-49 and about 12 million total viewers.

Looking at the night’s broadcast action, »

What Megan Mullally & Jenna Fischer Learned After Being Shackled Together For You, Me and the Apocalypse

28 January 2016 2:25 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Being handcuffed to another person for prolonged periods of time can lead to some major bonding. Just ask Megan Mullally and Jenna Fischer. In the new NBC dramedy You, Me and the Apocalypse, the sitcom vets play each other's unexpected sidekick during mankind's final days who spend a good chunk of that time shackled to one another. They're part of an eclectic group of seemingly unconnected characters (including Rob Lowe as hot and naughty priest!) around the world who begin to intersect in the most unexpected ways. And in the process, the pair discovered they might be one another's doppelganger.  "What did I learn about her? Only that I love you," Fischer told E! News about »

Review: 'You, Me and the Apocalypse' Is Indefinably But Undeniably Good

28 January 2016 1:12 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The first thing that perks up your ears is the British voiceover. While we certainly live in a time where BBC series are tracked as closely in the States as across the pond — "Downton Abbey," "Sherlock," "Luther," need I go on? – it's still a bit surprising (and quite welcome) to hear a Brit's voice talking you through the premise of a broadcast series featuring big, all-American names like Rob Lowe and Jenna Fischer. But as Matthew Baynton explains when and how the world is about to come to an end over the opening credits of "You, Me and the Apocalypse," you start to pick up on more welcome alterations to the broadcast standards. And ever so slowly, this new series wins you over — even though you never know quite what to call it. For one, that opening title sequence with the voiceover? It changes every episode.

Megan Mullally Describes the 'Panic' Over Her New Character's Swastika Tattoo

28 January 2016 6:07 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Megan Mullally is one of the stars of NBC's new comedy "You, Me and the Apocalypse," but even Karen Walker of "Will & Grace" might need a minute to recognize her. In the new series, which starts tonight (January 28), Megan plays a white supremacist named Leanne, whom Jenna Fischer's wrongfully imprisoned character Rhonda meets in a New Mexico prison; the two then meet other characters and try to wait out the oncoming apocalypse together.

It won't take long for viewers to see that Leanne is a white supremacist, since she has a swastika tattooed right on her forehead. In an interview with TV Guide, Megan said everyone was "freaking out" about the tattoo. "I don't want to in any way give the impression I think that's Ok. We were all in a panic like, 'We've got to cover it up! We've got to cover it!' I'm like 'How? What am I covering it with? »

You, Me And The Apocalypse Season 1 Review

27 January 2016 4:11 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Five episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

It’s hard to go in blind to any television show nowadays, with all of the coverage, behind-the-scenes, and spoiler chat that seem to be the cornerstone of marketing campaigns for any series with a hashtag and Twitter account. When you get that rare opportunity, having no idea what you’re about to get yourself into, it’s exciting not knowing what’s coming your way. This surprised, in-the-dark feeling is thematically apt given the subject matter of You, Me and the Apocalypse – humanity has 34 days to live thanks to an eight-mile-long comet hurtling towards the planet that’ll bring along a few earthquakes, tidal waves, acid fog, and essentially wipe the microbial floor with our remains.

Thanks to NBC’s weird-in-retrospect marketing, I went into the British-American series with the preconceived notion that You, Me and the Apocalypse was a quirky half-hour »

John Krasinski Responds to Jenna Fischer's Comments About Jim and Pam's Office Love

26 January 2016 7:06 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

John Krasinski is finally speaking out about Jenna Fischer's comments on her Office co-star during a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live. "I think that was wildly misquoted or taken out of context. I'm sure she was trying to say something nice about how genuine that acting relationship was, of bringing a relationship that became popular onscreen," Krasinski told The Daily Beast with regards to the actress' earlier stance on Pam and Jim. "I think we both feel it's such an honor to be a part of that relationship. As far as how she was quotes about saying we were 'genuinely in love,' I think that was taken wildly out of context and I feel bad for her." During »

John Krasinski Sets the Record Straight: I Was Not 'Genuinely in Love' with Jenna Fischer

26 January 2016 6:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

John Krasinski wants fans to know: what happens on TV isn't always real-life. The actor famously played Jim Halpert on NBC's The Office and was one-half of the much fan-invested TV romance with actress Jenna Fischer, who played his on-screen wife Pam Beesley. Fischer had previously opened up about Jim and Pam's romance on Watch What Happens Live explaining that "there's like a real part of me that is Pam, and there's a real part of him that's Jim, and those parts of us were genuinely in love with one another." However, Krasinski, 36, clarified that his former costar's words were misconstrued. »

John Krasinski Clarifies That He and Jenna Fischer Weren’t ‘Genuinely in Love’ on The Office Because TV Isn’t Real and Love Is a Lie

26 January 2016 7:26 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Of course TV relationships aren't real! That's why we all treat them with an appropriate level of cool reserve. In case you missed it, The Office's Jenna Fischer recently visited Watch What Happens Live and talked about her working relationship with former co-star John Krasinski. “There’s like a real part of me that is Pam, and a real part of him that’s Jim. And those parts of us were genuinely in love with one another," she claimed. In case you interpreted that statement to mean the two had actual feelings for one another, grow up and read a book already. “I think that was wildly misquoted or taken out of context," John Krasinski, the man you'll always think of as Jim Halpert, no matter how buff he gets, told the Daily Beast.

TV Review: ‘You, Me and the Apocalypse’

26 January 2016 7:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The benefits associated with a fragmented TV landscape include the freedom for the occasional series to be just flat-out weird. Enter “You, Me and the Apocalypse,” a darkly comic look at an extinction-level event, crash-landing on NBC by way of the U.K. Rob Lowe, Jenna Fischer and Megan Mullally lend Yankee credibility to this decidedly offbeat Sky co-production, which, over its five previewed episodes, is never particularly convincing, but oddly fascinating in its strangeness nonetheless. So while it’s hard to imagine the show having much of a future, there are a few reasons to check out “Apocalypse” now.

The story opens in a bunker, where the sad-sack Everyman Jamie (Mathew Baynton) is uncomfortably sitting with a small group of people, waiting for an asteroid to strike Earth and effectively end life as we know it. “Are we really the future of mankind?” he thinks to himself.

John Krasinski's Quotes About The Office Will Make You Miss Jim Halpert Even More

23 January 2016 4:09 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Want to hear something that will make you remember why you fell for Jim Halpert in the first place? John Krasinski, who has recently turned into a Greek god, appeared on a panel celebrating indie actors at the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday. While promoting his directorial debut, The Hollars, he indulged the audience with a few choice quotes about his breakout role. "There's no two ways about it, being on The Office was the greatest thing that I could have ever imagined," he said, when asked about how he chose his roles after the series ended. "For me, it's all about where the good story is at. I've never been a dramatic or comedy guy, it's just sort of, 'Where's the good story?' and The Office was one hell of a story to be a part of for 10 years, for sure. After that, I was just, like, 'I »

Jenna Fischer and John Krasinski 'Were Genuinely in Love' on 'The Office'

21 January 2016 1:20 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Here's something to make Jim and Pam fans swoon: Jenna Fischer says that she and John Krasinski were "genuinely in love" while filming "The Office."

But before you start anticipating a real-life reenactment of "Niagara" (a.k.a. the episode where Jim and Pam get hitched), you should know that that doesn't mean that Fischer and Krasinski were ever actually a couple (and with both of them married to other people, they have no plans to get together in the future, either). Instead, as the actress explained in an interview with "Watch What Happens Live," it was really their alter egos who were meant to be, though each actor embodied part of their onscreen character in real life, too.

"John and I have real chemistry," Fischer said. "There's like a real part of me that is Pam, and a real part of him that's Jim, and those parts of us »
