TV News Roundup: HBO Gives ‘Veep’ Season 6 an April Premiere, Puppy Bowl Ratings Up from 2016

7 February 2017 2:50 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In today’s TV news roundup, HBO sets a premiere date for “Veep” Season 6, Puppy Bowl ratings roll in, and unscripted content producer Wilshire Studios inks a deal with a veteran producer. 

Ratings

The second-biggest athletic contest on Super Bowl Sunday is, reliably, Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl. The 13th installment of Puppy Bowl pulled in 2.47 million viewers and a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic for its first airing from 3 to 5 p.m. That total viewership was up from last year’s initial audience of 2.2 million, but still down from 2015’s all-time high of 2.77 million. Animal Planet re-airs the Puppy Bowl throughout the rest of the day, snowballing the audience — 2016’s edition raked in 9.3 million viewers on the whole — so expect a healthy increase once the replay factor is added in.

Dates

Emmy-winning political comedy “Veep,” headed by Emmy-winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus, will return to HBO for its sixth season on April 16 at 10:30/9:30c. The »

Sundance 2017- Brigsby Bear Review

26 January 2017 5:33 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Nathan McVay

Disorientation is usually a bad thing; going through a state of mental confusion and having no sense of balance. Brigsby Bear may be one of the most disorienting films ever screened at Sundance. It also may be one of the most enjoyable, original and fascinating films I have ever seen.

Kyle Mooney and Kevin Costello have written a film directed by Dave McCary that is unlike anything I have ever seen. This creative, hilarious tale is a movie hard to place in a genre pigeonhole and nearly as impossible to describe.

Brigsby Bear centers around James Pope, who is portrayed pidgenhole by co-writer Kyle Mooney. The first time we see Pope he is watching his favorite TV show about an anamatronic bear named Brigsby, who is constantly saving the world while teaching valuable life lessons – some stranger than others.

Walking into a movie at a film festival, without knowing anything about what you’re going to see, can feel like entering an entirely new world for the first time. “Brigsby Bear” is the rare festival movie where the main character is experiencing the exact same sensation, and that creates an exhilarating viewing experience that works in the film’s favor. Whether or not this collaboration between childhood friends Dave McCary, Kevin Costello, and Kyle Mooney will hold the same appeal after marketing campaigns reveal many of the quirkiest surprises is an open question. But the eccentric, heartfelt curio is sure to attract a cult following under any conditions.

It helps that co-writer and star Mooney is cast member on “Saturday Night Live,” where he frequently collaborates with first-time feature helmer McCary. Both are founding members of the sketch troupe Good Neighbor, whose viral videos have showcased a deadpan sensibility, »
