Hey Emmys, it's time to finally reward Harry Shearer for 'The Simpsons''

24 July 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Last year, the Emmys corrected one of their worst oversights by finally bestowing an award on legendary comedian Bob Newhart, but there's another major blind spot that needs to be addressed. Harry Shearer, who has voiced multiple characters on "The Simpsons" for a quarter-century, is still without an Emmy. He's nominated again this year. The TV academy shouldn't make him wait any longer. -Break- Click here to watch our latest Emmy chats: Josh Charles, Jamie Hyneman, and more Shearer's snub is surprising in and of itself, but even more so when you consider how many other "Simpsons" actors have won voice-over Emmys. They are as follows: Nancy Cartwright (1992) Julie Kavner (1992) Jackie Mason (1992) Yeardley Smith (1992) Marcia Wallace (1992) Dan Castellaneta (1992, 1993, 2004, 2009) Hank Azaria (1998, 2001, 2003) Kelsey Grammer (2006) Anne Hathaway (2010) That accounts for every »

15 Problems Only Dead Space Fans Will Understand

18 July 2014 3:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

EA

Being a Dead Space fan isn’t always easy. With three main line games, three spin-offs, two animated movies, two novels, two graphic novels, and two comic book series, there’s a lot to take in, and plenty to put up with. Perhaps best known for their outlandishly gruesome games, Visceral (formerly known as EA Redwood Shores) goes out of their way to make the Dead Space franchise as disgusting as they possibly can, in more ways that one. This has caused quite a stir from parents, to such a point that they would use older women in their “Your Mom Hates Dead Space 2″ campaign.

Dead Space has been a series that’s seen its fair share of controversy, both from gamers and non-gamers alike. This is to be expected; it is an EA game. What this means for the most dedicated fans of the franchise is putting up »

Press Tour: July 2014 CBS Executive Session Live-Blog

17 July 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Good thing news broke on Wednesday that the cast of "The Big Bang Theory" is still negotiating with CBS and Wbtv, because without that, there wouldn't have been much excitement to be expected from Thursday (July 17) morning's Television Critics Association press tour panel with CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler. So we've got that to look forward to. We can also probably expect some queries about Thursday Night Football, the early performance of Halle Berry's "Extant" and maybe CBS' difficulties launching midseason shows (but probably not).  Click through for the full live-blog... 9:02 a.m. CBS starts promptly. 9:02 a.m. CBS is America's most watched network for the 11th time in 12 years. 9:03 a.m. "I admit it, I'm still really pissed about 'The Good Wife,'" Tassler says, trumpeting CBS' Emmy nominations, most for any broadcast network. 9:03 a.m. Tassler is a fan of new platforms, »

Your guide to the TCA press tour

8 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Right about now, the lights should be on in the Beverly Hilton ballroom for the very first panel of the summer 2014 Television Critics Association press tour. I'm not due to arrive at tour until sometime tomorrow, but Fienberg and other members of the TCA should be there, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for the start of the 16-day event (which, for many people, will run straight into the start of Comic-Con). Each time I get ready to go to press tour (give or take that time that I broke my ankle), I like to present some version of the guide to press tour I originally wrote in my Star-Ledger days (with a lot of help from Matt Zoller Seitz). If you've been following my tour coverage all this time, odds are you know a lot of this and can skip down to the bottom for the 10 biggest questions Dan and I have about this current tour, »

NBC, Univision Tie for Demo Lead in Weekly Ratings Race

25 June 2014 5:28 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Univision moved up to a tie with NBC for the primetime lead among young adults last week, with the former benefiting from higher circulation due to the World Cup and the latter aided by a second helping of summer standout “America’s Got Talent.”

TNT, meanwhile, got off to an encouraging start with drama “The Last Ship,” as the net ruled cable’s scripted-program rankings in key demos.

Though it aired outside of primetime, the week’s most-watched event was the World Cup match on Sunday between the United States and Portugal, which drew nearly 25 million viewers on Espn (18.2 million) and Univision (6.5 million). The final hour of the game, which concluded around 8 p.m. Et, was included in the week’s averages and helped Univision’s cause.

Overall, according to Nielsen estimates for the week of June 16-22, NBC and Univision tied in adults 18-49 with a 1.2 rating/4 share, and »
