Magic, Music and Nick Offerman's Sex Advice: An Evening With 'Childrens Hospital'

26 August 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"Childrens Hospital" will head into its seventh season with four Emmy nods and two wins under its belt, and spent an evening at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in Los Angeles -- maybe to campaign a little for another win, but mostly to celebrate another year of satire, sitcom and medically accurate advice. Read More: Review: 'Hot Tub Time Machine 2' Starring Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Adam Scott and Clark Duke The Rob Corddry comedy was born out of the compulsory idleness of 2007's Writers Guild Strike, and found a niche to stream online with The WB before Adult Swim picked up the rights to air, where "Childrens Hospital" has remained since. It stars an ensemble cast portraying the staff of Childrens Hospital – named after Dr. Arthur Childrens – who also star in medical drama "Childrens Hospital," the show within the show.     After a screening of the show's Emmy nominated episode, »

Ahead of his August 21 broadcast from inside the YouTube Space in Los Angeles, James Corden has released a musical love letter to the video sharing website. “When the world leaves you weary/When life feels routine/You always know the place to go just inside your screen,” Corden begins.

Wanda Sykes Sets Up Comedy Series at NBC Starring 'Last Comic Standing' Winner Rod Man

20 August 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

A year ago, via her Push It ProductionsWanda Sykes and company partner Page Hurwitz, signed a first-look deal with NBC/Universal TV to develop and produce unscripted projects. Here's one project that has been ordered under that agreement... Sykes, who is also exec producer of “Last Comic Standing” has teamed up with Kenny Smith (exec producer of “The Game”) for a half-hour comedy series that will star Rod Man - the winner of season 8 of "Last Comic Standing." The currently untitled project, which appears to be loosely based on Rod Man's real life, will see the comedian/actor playing a comedian who moves from Georgia to Los Angeles with his wife and daughter to help take care of his mother — a job he’s better equipped for than his seemingly more qualified brother and sister. No Eta announced, but it could very well be another summer series as NBC's current offering, »

'The Carmichael Show': TV Review

20 August 2015 10:34 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It seems like only yesterday that NBC began burning off the half-hour comedy Mr. Robinson (starring Craig Robinson as a musician who teaches at his old neighborhood school), airing two episodes of its six-episode order every Wednesday over three weeks. A similar fate is about to befall The Carmichael Show, which originally was scheduled as the 9:30 p.m. companion to Mr. Robinson. It's unfortunate, given that this new series shows a lot more promise. Like Mr. Robinson, The Carmichael Show has an overly familiar sitcom setup: Stand-up Jerrod Carmichael plays a fictional version of himself, modestly successful

‘Mr. Robinson’ Ratings On Par In Final Week; Will NBC Comedy Get Renewal?

20 August 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Craig Robinson’s NBC comedy series has made a case for a second-season pickup with an Ok summer run. The final two episodes last night drew a 1.0 in 18-49 and 4.2 million viewers at 9 Pm and 0.9, 3.4 million at 9:30 Pm. While the 9:30 Pm results constitute lows for the series, the the demo dip was small and may be erased with time-shifted viewing. Also, after a strong start, Mr. Robinson‘s Week 2 and Week 3 ratings results matched those for last summer’s NBC comedy… »

Wednesday Ratings: ‘Big Brother’ Strong; ‘Mr. Robinson’ Down Slightly in Finale

20 August 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There was little Wednesday-night ratings movement this week, with CBS’ “Big Brother” again ruling as the top show in demos despite facing tough reality competition, and newcomer NBC comedy “Mr. Robinson” holding up pretty well in its final week.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Big Brother” (2.1/8 in 18-49, 6.5 million viewers overall) was just a bit below its season high of last week (and may get there in the finals due to its propensity to rise in the afternoon adjustments). It was the night’s No. 1 show in 18-49 as well as 25-54 (2.5/8) and 18-34 (1.5/7). “Extant” (0.7/3 in 18-49, 4.6 million viewers overall) held steady at 9, again ranking fourth among the Big Four in 18-49, and a repeat “Criminal Minds” closed things out (0.6/2 in 18-49, 4.4 million viewers overall).

Over at NBC, which tied with CBS for the night’s lead in adults 18-49 while winning outright in total viewers, the results »

Weekly Ratings: ‘Pretty Little Liars,’ ‘Power’ Exit Summer Strong; NBC Reality Rules

19 August 2015 6:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This has not been a good summer in the ratings for scripted programming — viewership for nearly all returning shows are down versus last year and cable has been hit particularly hard — but there were a few cable standouts last week.

The big “A” reveal on the summer finale of ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” delivered the show’s best rating in both adults 18-49 (1.4) and adults 18-34 (2.1) in nearly two years and its largest overall audience (3.09 million) in 18 months, according to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates. The 18-49 rating was also the best for any ad-supported scripted program this summer, and the 18-34 score was the best for any scripted series since the season finale of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” in May.

(And on the social media front, “Liars” had another monster showing: With 1.6 million Tweets, Tuesday’s hour ranks as the No. 3 most popular cable TV series episode on record. »

Ratings: ‘Big Brother’ Wins Reality Showdown; ‘Mr. Robinson’ Steady for NBC

13 August 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In a Wednesday showdown pitting the top-rated summer reality show on three networks, CBS’ strong and steady “Big Brother” emerged as the night’s top show. And on the scripted side, NBC comedy “Mr. Robinson” held up well in its second week, contributing to the net’s nightly win in young adults.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Big Brother” (2.1/9 in 18-49, 6.5 million viewers overall) appears poised to match its summer high of 2.2 in 18-49 (it regularly is revised up in the nationals) while drawing one of its largest overall audiences on any night of the season; its previous total-viewer high of 6.915 million came for its season premiere.

“Brother,” the night’s No. 1 show in 18-49, bested head-to-head competitors “America’s Got Talent” on NBC (1.6/6 in 18-49, 8.3 million viewers overall) and Fox’s “MasterChef” (1.4/6 in 18-49, 4.6 million viewers overall), with the latter down a smidge and on the low end of its summer range. »

Salma Hayek Proves She Has a Daredevil Palate by Eating Silk Worms and a Deep-Fried Frog—Watch Now!

13 August 2015 8:28 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

When it comes to food, Salma Hayek knows no boundaries. The Frida actress stopped by Watch What Happens Live Wednesday alongside Craig Robinson and proved that she'll eat just about anything...except onions. Given what she's willing to eat, the idea of her staying away from the layered legume seems a bit odd! In a game of "Will Salma Eat It?" host Andy Cohen challenged the Oscar-nominated actress to see if she would or wouldn't eat a few mystery foods. The host and Robinson started out somewhat slowly, offering the star deep-fried frog. "Deep-fried frog or frog legs?" she questioned. "What you're supposed to eat is the frog legs."

Salma Hayek Plays Never Have I Ever -- Asked About One-Night Stands & Shoplifting!

13 August 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Salma Hayek is dishing on her dark past ... sort of.   The star stopped by "Watch What Happens Live" on Wednesday night and played an interesting game of "Never Have I Ever" alongside actor Craig Robinson.   During the game, Andy Cohen put his guests on the spot, asking if they'd ever forgotten the name of a one-night stand or watched porn.   The 48-year-old actress' answers remained innocent until the host asked if anyone had ever shoplifted. The "Frida" actress shocked the room when she revealed that she had, in fact, stolen before. "It was a little turtle, It was a little turtle," she explained. "Yes, I couldn't help myself, I was nine!"  Watch the clip below to see Salma's response when asked if she's ever sent someone a naked photo of herself.   That wasn't the only confession Salma coped to!

The Late Late Show's James Corden has found his late-night TV niche with his singing. For his latest sketch, Corden and guest Craig Robinson either slowed down or funked up a collection of classic public domain songs.

Salma Hayek has pushed the envelope with her acting roles such as portraying Mexican painter Frida Kahlo or as the executive producer of “Ugly Betty.” But on Wednesday it was her culinary habits that were challenged on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” for a new game called “Will!

Weekly Ratings: Debate Lifts Fox News to 12-Year High; NBC Sacks Rivals With NFL’s Return

12 August 2015 5:57 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC found the ratings end zone last week thanks in part to the return of the NFL, but Fox News Channel’s coverage of the Republican Presidential Debate was easily the frame’s highest-rated program overall — and became cable’s most-watched non-sports telecast on record.

Moderated by Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace, the first presidential debate of the 2016 election cycle drew a whopping 24 million viewers in primetime on Thursday. This was more double the most-watched debate on the network in the lead-up to the 2012 election (11.8 million) and is Fnc’s most-watched telecast in its 19-year history.

The Gop primetime debate was also the week’s No. 1 program in adults 18-49 (5.3/17) and adults 25-54 (6.6/20), according to Nielsen’s live plus same-day estimates.

For the week of Aug. 3-9, Fox News led all cable networks in the adults 25-54 demo (1.19 million) and ranked third among all television networks for the »

Here Comes NBC's 'Mr. Robinson'!

10 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Mr. Robinson," starring Craig Robinson, made its debut Wednesday, August 5th, on NBC. It's about a part-time musician who gets a job as a part-time music teacher, all to reconnect with an old high school flame he stood up at his prom.

I liked the concept of "Mr. Robinson," which shows a new high school music teacher (Robinson) who is more of a friend to the students than a teacher or disciplinarian. In one scene, he catches a kid on the school yard with a joint, but instead of having him expelled he takes the joint, chastises him a little, then dismisses him with a "now get yo little ass outta here." Parts of the show were fun and funny and made me laugh (like that joint scene), but others (for those of you who had biology class) were about as fun and funny as watching fungi get freaky.
