23 May 2017 10:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Now that we know which shows survived the upfronts, here are the most interesting match-ups on the Fall 2017-18 TV schedule.

ABC will look to launch freshman drama “The Good Doctor” with Freddie Highmore at 10 p.m. on the back of perennial viewership powerhouse “Dancing with the Stars,” putting it up against NBC’s new military drama “The Brave.” Meanwhile, CBS is pairing “The Big Bang Theory” with sitcom “9Jkl” and “Me, Myself and I” with the sophomore season of “Kevin Can Wait.” Fox will move “Lucifer” to Mondays at 8 as the lead-in to the new Marvel series “The Gifted.” The CW will debut its own military drama, “Valor,” at 9 after “Supergirl” in the timeslot previously occupied by “Jane the Virgin.”

ABC is shifting a few of their comedies, moving “Black-ish” to Tuesdays ahead of the new comedy “The Mayor” from “Hamilton’s” Daveed Diggs, which will then lead in to the new one-hour dramedy “The Gospel »

L.A. Screenings: What Seven Major Studios Have on Tap

23 May 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Here’s what seven major studios have on tap during the annual TV market.

CBS Studios Intl.

Big bets are being placed on military dramas “Seal Team,” starring David Boreanaz, and “Valor,” featuring a fresh-faced cast. Summer series “Salvation” also has a military angle (albeit crossed with sci-fi), while both Jeremy Piven’s “Wisdom of the Crowd” and Alan Cumming’s “Instinct” mix crime solving and modern technology. The studio is light on laughs this year, with just one solo-produced comedy: “9Jkl,” based on the life of creator and star Mark Feuerstein.

Disney Media Distribution

Not just one but four new Marvel series will be on display, including the much anticipated “Inhumans” and the youth-skewing “Cloak & Dagger,” “New Warriors” and “Runaways.” And although it’s not based on a comic book, “Grey’s Anatomy” officially becomes a franchise, launching a new as-yet-untitled spinoff. Shonda Rhimes also makes her case with legal drama “For the People,” while »

20 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last Week’S Tweets: Is The World Going to Hell Because ‘Hannibal’ Got Canceled?

One fascinating aspect of today’s media landscape is that many creators and executive producers enjoy using Twitter to engage with their audiences, share behind-the-scenes information about their shows, chat about politics, and otherwise communicate about what matters to them. So, each week, we’ll compile some of our favorite exchanges representing the wide variety of discourse seen on social media.

This week, we get unique insight into the relationships between two showrunners and their mothers, Loren Bouchard shares an unreleased “Bob’s Burgers” song, and more.

Upfronts 2017: The Best, Worst, and Weirdest Moments of TV’s Marathon Week

19 May 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Television’s marathon week in Manhattan came to a close just as the clock struck midnight Friday morning at the CW’s annual private party, which moved to a new location in midtown for 2017. The soirée, per usual, was filled with relieved advertisers and exhausted entertainment execs who could finally celebrate the end of Upfronts.

NBC kicked off the four-day run, followed by Fox, ABC, Turner, CBS, and the CW. Some of the presentations were great, while others could have used some improvement. Fox may want to invest in a new late-night franchise just to have a host to trot out every year at this time. Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Seth Meyers, and Jimmy Kimmel (in absentia) were among the highlights of the CBS, NBC, and ABC gatherings.

Here is the good, the bad, and the worst of Upfronts 2017:

Family Guy Finale Video: Meet Peter's Secret Children — All 94 of 'Em

19 May 2017 9:51 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Peter’s extensive history as a sperm donor comes back to haunt him — yet again! — on Sunday’s special one-hour season finale of Family Guy (Fox, 9/8c).

In TVLine’s exclusive clip from the finale’s second half, Peter receives the surprise of a lifetime when all of his children — 94 if my admittedly rocky math skills are to be trusted — show up at his doorstep. Because, according to one of his daughters, the sperm bank said it was “Ok” to contact him.

The 4 Worst New Fall TV Show Titles & How We’d Fix Them

18 May 2017 4:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Now that the Big 5 networks have unveiled their new fall shows (with a few midseason offerings thrown in), we can get down to really investing in what we’re going to see this year. But first, let’s address an issue that we’re sure many viewers have when it comes to getting excited about new shows: really awful titles.

What’s in a name? Well, if you ask “Trophy Wife,” everything. The critically acclaimed series didn’t feel like the usual sitcom fare. Its humor was smart, ironic and a little bit daffy, and the performances were delightful and nuanced. Sadly, during its entire 22 episodes, it couldn’t ever escape bubble status, and in the end, really lame marketing tactics was its downfall. The show wasn’t about a trophy wife at all, and in fact, that title undermined its strong, feminist voice. The show never saw a Season »

Upfronts 2017: The Best, Worst and Wackiest Moments in Photos

18 May 2017 2:39 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Though the broadcast networks have (thankfully) gotten Hamilton parodies out of their collective system, live music was still the name of the game at this year’s Upfronts — and most of them actually made sense!

PhotosFall TV Preview: Your Guide to What’s New

Jennifer Hudson, for example, was an obvious choice to open NBC’s presentation in song, given that she recently signed on to coach The Voice. And of course The CW would ask the main trio from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend to serenade advertisers with a number from the Emmy Award-winning series.

Seth MacFarlane's 'The Orville' Trailer Goes Full 'Galaxy Quest'

18 May 2017 1:43 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

"By Grabthar's hammer, you shall be avenged!"

The late Alan Rickman's famous Galaxy Quest war cry was likely on the minds of the fans who laid their eyes upon the trailer for Fox's new star-spanning sitcom The Orville. The upcoming series, created by and starring Family Guy architect Seth MacFarlane, focuses on a crew of space travelers aboard a ship called — you guessed it — The U.S.S. Orville, with Ed Mercer (MacFarlane) serving as an unlikely and untalented starship captain.

Ratings: Shocking ‘DWTS’ Elimination Returns ABC to First Place in Viewers – But It Was Close

16 May 2017 8:47 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Editors note: This post contains a spoiler from last night’s “DWTS.” Stop reading now if you don’t want to know who went home on the ABC dancing competition. ABC reclaimed its primetime total viewer crown last night with a shocking elimination on “Dancing With the Stars” as 10 million fans said goodbye to Simone Biles. NBC followed closely behind in the Nielsen metric, and was still able to win its sixth Monday in a row among the key 18-49 demographic, thanks mostly to “The Voice.” A week ago, NBC had topped the night outright.
