Faster than a speeding bullet, the pilot for CBS’ Supergirl has illegally leaked onto file-sharing sites.
VideosCBS’ Supergirl Trailer Debuts
CBS ordered the buzzy superhero drama to series barely two weeks ago, and only unveiled the first footage last Wednesday, May 13, during its annual Upfront presentation to advertisers.
The leaking of pilots for an upcoming TV season is nothing new, though Supergirl‘s super-fast pirating would seem to set a land-speed record for a high-profile project. Last summer, for example, the pilots for The Flash and Constantine — also comics book-based fare appealing to a certain crafty, passionate crowd — didn’t »
Supergirl is faster than a speeding bullet, but something tells us CBS didn't intend that speediness to extend to the pilot racing onto computers more than six months before its premiere. Yes, the Supergirl pilot has leaked online. The new CBS drama series starring Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El/Supergirl hit torrent sites early this morning. Will Internet piracy be Supergirl's Kryptonite? According to TorrentFreak, NBC's Crowded, the midseason comedy starring The Good Wife and True Blood veteran Carrie Preston, iCarly's Miranda Cosgrove and The Tick's Patrick Warburton, has also leaked early. Supergirl also stars Calista Flockhart, Mehcad Brooks, Jeremy Jordan and Chyler Leigh. The series »
What's big and blue and making a comeback? The Tick. Spoon! The Tick is officially coming back to life, according to Patrick Warburton. Everybody loves a good superhero show and everybody loves a good TV series revival, so it just makes perfect sense that Warburton's zany hero will be coming back to your screens soon. Warburton, who can next be seen opposite The Good Wife and True Blood veteran Carrie Preston in NBC's midseason comedy Crowded, will once again don the blue suit. When? That remains to be seen, but it's happening, according to Warburton. "We're doing it," Warburton told E! News when asked about revival rumors. And it's going to be on Amazon, he told »
As it closes in on its second consecutive season-long victory in the key adult 18-49 demographic, NBC unveils a new 2015-16 primetime schedule that combines popular returning series, edge-of-your-seat new dramas, inventive new comedies and season nine of the Emmy Award-winning musical competition series The Voice. NBC is on track to win the traditional September-to-May primetime season in adults 18-49 for the second year in a row after having gone the prior 10 years without an 18-49 win. Through 32 completed weeks of the season, NBC also ranks #1 or tied for #1 among the Big 4 networks in adults and men 18-34 and men and women 18-49.
In total viewers, NBC is running #2 for the season and within 7% of its year-ago Olympics-boosted average (8.8 million vs. 9.5 million), making this season and last NBC's two top-scoring seasons in total viewers since 2006-07. NBC has won the last three November sweeps in adults 18-49, as well as »
Live from New York, Los Angeles, and, perhaps, several other places, it’s NBC’s fall schedule.
The Comcast-owned network said it would start to rely more heavily on live and live-to-tape programming in the fall, a reflection, perhaps, of the troubles the outlet has had in attaining hit status for much of its scripted fare in past seasons. NBC is set to run a live variety show featuring Neil Patrick Harris on Tuesday nights; run episodes of the sitcom “Undateable” on Friday nights that are performed live; and continue to lean on two of its most durable franchises, “The Voice” on Mondays and Tuesdays, and “Sunday Night Football” on Sunday nights in the first half of the season. The network will also mount the third in a series of live broadcasts of popular Broadway fare, setting a take of “The Wiz” for the holiday season.

People Are Talking, created by DJ Nash, centers on two neighborhood couples who meet often to obsess over everything from sex, class and race to their suspicions that the new babysitter is a porn star. Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tone Bell are two of the main foursome, Packer will exec-produce and Pam Fryman (How I Met Your Mother) directed the pilot.
Crowded, from Martin and actor Sean Hayes, is yet another multigenerational family comedy (following Modern Family, The Goldbergs, Black-ish, Fresh Off the Boat and others in what seems to be a never-ending trend) about parents whose future plans are derailed when their two adult daughters experience trouble in their personal and professional lives and move back in. James Burrows directed the pilot, »

A look at the life of a two couples from different backgrounds.

Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham on the Oscars' Red Carpet Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham at the Academy Awards Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham in a red-and-golden outfit are pictured above on the 2011 Academy Awards' Red Carpet, just outside the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The Oscar ceremony was held on Sunday, Feb. 27. Wahlberg, decades ago known as underwear model Marky Mark, was an Oscar nominee as one of the producers of Best Picture contender The Fighter – which ultimately lost to odds-on favorite The King's Speech. Mark Wahlberg was the only major player in the David O. Russell-directed boxing drama who failed to be nominated for an Academy Award in the acting categories. Co-stars Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, and Christian Bale were all shortlisted; Leo and Bale ended up winning in their respective supporting categories. Wahlberg, however, was a Best Supporting Actor nominee four years ago: for »

America Ferrera, Ben Feldman, and Patrick Warburton all got new gigs today, as NBC picked up two new sitcoms to series. Superstore stars Ferrera and Feldman as workers at a Walmart-style retailer who "tackle the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales and nap-worthy training sessions" while presumedly being forbidden from unionizing. Crowded sees Warburton and True Blood's Carrie Preston as empty-nesters who suddenly find their house full up when their millennial daughters (Miranda Cosgrove and Mia Serafino) and elderly parents all move back in. So that's an Office-like workplace sitcom, a multi-generational family comedy in the style of CBS; add them to the How I Met Your Mother–style People Are Talking, and it's clear that the Peacock is trying to get out of its sitcom recession by any means necessary. »

I appreciate that NBC at least let one other piece of pre-upfronts news break -- Rip, "Hart of Dixie" -- between piecemeal announcements for new comedy pilots. Just hours after picking up the multi-cam comedy "People Are Talking," NBC has added to what is essentially a bare comedy cupboard with series orders for "Crowded" and "Superstore." The trio of Thursday comedies join the strange "Coach" reboot and Eva Longoria's "Telenovela" in NBC's 2015-2016 in-season plans, while "Mr. Robinson" and "The Carmichael Show" are premiering limited runs in August. It's at least conceivable that NBC may not renew a single one of its existing comedies, though "Undateable" is probably reasonably safe for a third season pickup. Let's look at the two new comedies, both ensembles featuring a slew of TV favorites. "Superstore" marks America Ferrara's return to the small screen and also brings Ben Feldman back to NBC just one »

NBC has made it official, giving a series order to the multi-camera empty nesters comedy from the Hot In Cleveland team of Suzanne Martin and Hazy Mills, now titled Crowded, which stars Patrick Warburton and Carrie Preston. I hear the pilot has been a favorite of Comcast brass. Also picked up is another early frontrunner in the NBC comedy race, single-camera workplace pilot Superstore, from The Office alum Justin Spitzer, which stars America Ferrera and Ben Feldman. They… »
