9 Reasons Why the 'X-Files' Revival Matters

27 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Admit it, millennials: When the news broke Tuesday that FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully would be returning to the Fox network for a six-episode reboot of "The X-Files," many of you said, "Who are Mulder and Scully?" After all, the show has been off the air for 13 years. Since then, Gillian Anderson (Scully) moved to England and did period dramas, while David Duchovny (Mulder) became that creepy old lech on Showtime's "Californication," and "X-Files" creator Chris Carter went Mia and was apparently abducted by aliens.

Still, even if "The X-Files," its stars, and its creator haven't been pinging the cultural radar much in recent years, the return of the show with its original cast and showrunner on board is a huge deal. Much of what we now take for granted in pop culture -- especially on TV and online -- owes a tremendous debt to the 1993-2002 sci-fi drama series. »

Get Hard – The Review

26 March 2015 9:30 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It’s team-up time for twin titans of comedy once again . Actually one of the stars of this new film was attempting this just a couple of months ago. The in-danger-of-over-saturation star Kevin Hart made an attempt to broaden his fan base by joining up with another rising comic star, Josh Gad, In the modest hit (couldn’t have cost that much) The Wedding Ringer. Well it certainly worked for Kevin’s comic predecessors Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, and Chris Tucker. But this time out he’s truly going for it, making a run for the comedy big leagues, by teaming with an established superstar of laugh-filled flicks, Will Ferrell (sure he’s had some duds, but when he scores, he scores big). And this new film takes some hot-button current topics, and gives them a spin that may remind you of certain Pryor and Murphy classics. So, let’s »

Ratings: Fox’s ‘Empire’ Caps First Season With More Than 17 Million Viewers

19 March 2015 8:11 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Update: In time zone-adjusted national estimates, “Empire” averaged a 6.5 rating in 18-49 and 16.7 million viewers overall from 8 to 10 p.m., including a 6.9 rating and 17.6 million in its regular 9 o’clock hour (which will count in season averages).

The 6.9 rating, just a tick below last week’s “The Walking Dead” on AMC, is the highest for any regularly scheduled broadcast drama since “CSI” on CBS in October 2008 (7.2).


Fox drama “Empire” capped its stunning first-year ratings performance Wednesday night with viewership gains for a tenth straight week and a demo delivery not seen by any broadcast series in nearly six years.

Nielsen estimates that the two-hour finale of “Empire” averaged a 6.4 rating/20 share in adults 18-49 and 16.5 million viewers overall — up about 10% in both categories from last week’s hourlong episode (5.8/17 and 14.92 million); these numbers are expected to rise in the nationals. It opened at 8 p.m. where it left off last »

CSI: Cyber Screencap Recap: Computers Most Certainly Will Kill You

12 March 2015 9:02 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This week’s episode of CSI: Cyber is called “Cmnd:\Crash”, which is — just guessing here — hacker-speak for “Command: Crash.” Looks like this week, the Cyber gang is gonna take on some guy commanding things to crash. The episode opens with some backstory. Avery Ryan explains how back when she was a psychologist, she got hacked. One of her patients ended up dead because of the hacking. It sounds very sad. Hacking seems bad. Hackers are everywhere, Ryan tells us, “just a keystroke away.” Don’t believe her? Maybe this graphic will convince you. Still not convinced? How about now? Maybe laying it on a little thick there, CSI. Our mystery of the week begins at a theme park in Richmond, Virginia, where a hacker has decided to kill people by hacking a roller coaster with his cell phone.

Weekly Ratings: ‘Voice’ Still Resonating for NBC; Fox News Leads All Cable Nets

11 March 2015 5:54 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Despite a lackluster performance by its first-year programs, NBC appears to be a lock to finish the season on top in the key young-adults demo for a second straight year — and “The Voice” is the biggest reason why.

The music competition series has shown that it still has a lot left in the tank, dominating its four hours last week and helping the net edge out Fox in a frame when its monster hit “Empire” notched yet another high, as well as an improved ABC.

Another network that overcame a heavyweight program on the competition was Fox News Channel, which was the week’s most-watched cable network in primetime even though AMC’s “The Walking Dead” (and its 14.53 million viewers) was about four times more popular than any other cable program, according to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates.

Fnc, with 1.93 million viewers, drew about 200,000 more than AMC, TBS, USA and Disney Channel, »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

"American Idol" judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr. were on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Tuesday night and Jimmy had them try the new Peeps milk. It just looks ... like an acquired taste. Jimmy said it tastes like the milk at the bottom of the cereal bowl without having to eat the cereal. Harry sent it through to Hollywood. The trio talked to Jimmy about their different genres of music and the first concerts they ever went to.

Jimmy also asked the judges a series of questions on the theme of "Who is Most Likely To..." Stay for the end of that video. Harry says JLo gets cold at the "Idol" judges' table, »

Wednesday Ratings: Fox’s ‘Empire’ Delivers Eighth Straight Week of Growth

5 March 2015 8:39 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Another week, another record high for Fox phenom “Empire,” which continued to show no signs of slowing down Wednesday, two weeks from its first-season finale. Also of note in last night’s ratings race was a good performance by ABC’s comedy block and a solid but unspectacular start for the latest CBS crime drama spinoff, “CSI: Cyber.”

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Empire” averaged a 5.7 rating/16 share in adults 18-49 — the best same-night score for a regularly scheduled broadcast drama since “Grey’s Anatomy” in October 2009 — and 14.2 million viewers overall. It was up 6% in the demo and 2% in total viewers from last week

“Empire” has now grown seven consecutive weeks in total viewership since its Jan. 7 premiere: 9.90 million (Jan. 7), 10.32 million (Jan. 14), 11.07 million (Jan. 21), 11.35 million (Jan. 28), 11.47 million (Feb. 4), 11.96 million (Feb. 18), 13.02 million (Feb. 18), 13.90 million and now a preliminary 14.2 million.

And in adults 18-49, it’s been up seven times »

Ratings: Fox’s ‘Last Man on Earth’ Stands Out with Solid Sunday Start

2 March 2015 9:07 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On a busy Sunday that marked the beginning of the networks’ spring lineup rollouts, Fox had the best news as its hourlong premiere of comedy “Last Man on Earth” stood as the night’s top-rated broadcast in young adults. ABC did decently with its two-hour launch of “Secrets and Lies,” but it was a sluggish start for CBS’ “Battle Creek.

It’s been a mostly tough year for new comedies, but Fox’s “Last Man on Earth” impressed on Sunday (2.3 rating/6 share in adults 18-49, 5.7 million viewers overall), building by 28% in the demo from its “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” lead-in (1.8/5 in 18-49, 3.6 million viewers overall) and putting Fox ahead of its rivals on the night.

The post-apocalyptic comedy starring Will Forte edged out ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” as the night’s top Big Four series in 18-49, 18-34 (1.8/6) and all key male demos. And viewers liked what they saw, as the 9:30 p. »

Madam Secretary‘s Elizabeth McCord is always one cool politico, no matter what tricky feat of international diplomacy is demanded of her. But those behind the scenes of CBS’ Sunday-night drama admit that its Season 2 pickup last month provided a welcome respite from the nerve-racking renwal waiting game.

“It was a big relief to get it early,” executive producer Lori McCreary says with a laugh.

“Huge,” chimes in fellow Ep Barbara Hall.
