Taxi Brooklyn: Cancel or Renew for Season Two?

4 September 2014 1:02 AM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

NBC's new Wednesday night series Taxi Brooklyn has an unusual premise -- but sometimes that's what it takes to become a hit show these days. How's the series been doing in the ratings? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

Taxi Brooklyn follows Cat Sullivan (Chyler Leigh), a tough NYPD Detective who doesn't let a demotion to foot patrol stop her from trying to find her father's killer. She finds an unlikely ally in Leo Romba (Jacky Ido), a taxi driver from Marseille. The rest of the cast includes James Colby, Jose Zuniga, Jennifer Esposito, Bill Heck, Ally Walker, and Raul Casso.

  This police series got off to a lackluster start at the end of June with the first episode drawing just a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5.34 million viewers. The ratings have gone up and »

Taxi Brooklyn: Season One Ratings

7 August 2014 1:37 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

NBC hasn't had much ratings success with licensed series like Crossing Lines and The Listener. Will Taxi Brooklyn be a different story? Will NBC want a second season or will they cancel this one too? Stay tuned!

Taxi Brooklyn follows Cat Sullivan (Chyler Leigh), a tough NYPD Detective who doesn't let a demotion to foot patrol stop her from trying to find her father's killer. She finds an unlikely ally in Leo Romba (Jacky Ido), a taxi driver from Marseille. The rest of the cast includes James Colby, Jose Zuniga, Jennifer Esposito, Bill Heck, Ally Walker, and Raul Casso.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, »

‘The Last Ship’: The Hard Choices

21 July 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

[This is a review of The Last Ship season 1, episode 5. There will be Spoilers.]


Part of the enduring appeal of post-apocalyptic fiction is that once unfathomable choices are often made by characters due to inescapable circumstance; tough choices that are not reflexively celebrated or even understood. More than anything, though, these narrative choices represent a risk – something that The Last Ship has, for the most part, steered clear of.

In last night’s episode, ‘El Toro’, we saw the clearest opportunity for the show to make an unpopular yet bold creative choice when Chandler (Eric Dane), Mike Slattery (Adam Baldwin) and their crew were confronted by a low level warlord (El Toro, as played by José Zúñiga) ...

Madrid – Uncork’d Entertainment has acquired U.S rights to “Best Worst Friends,” the latest movie from Chile’s Nicolas Lopez, whose “Aftershock,” co-written by and starring Eli Roth, was released in the U.S by Radius-The Weinstein Company.
