Killer Women: Cancelled; No Season Two But...

17 May 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

To no surprise, ABC has pulled the plug on Killer Women after one season. However, there is a bit of good news for fans of this low-rated Tuesday night series.

Killer Women revolves around Molly Parker (Tricia Helfer), a tough-as-nails female Texas Ranger. Other series performers include Marc Blucas, Alex Fernandez, Marta Milans, Michael Trucco, Beth Riesgraf, Vincent Fuentes, and Paul Howard Smith.

The crime drama debuted as a mid-season replacement on January 7th, attracting a meager 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.96 million viewers. As bad as those ratings were, the show's performance would only get worse in later weeks. The network ended up pulling Killer Women after six of the eight episodes had run. The last airing drew a 0.6 rating with 3.22 million.

Though the show won't be back fo a second season, ABC has at least »

NBCU Cable Offers Advertisers A Drink, Then Toasts Audience Aggregation

15 May 2014 2:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Call it the Night of 126 Stars.

NBCUniversal brought out everyone from Joan Rivers to Kim Kardashian to tout a wide range of programs across its entertainment-focused cable outlets Bravo, E!, Syfy, USA, Oxygen, Esquire and even kiddie-cabler Sprout. The massive presentation aims to highlight the company’s suite of cable outlets, that are just as important financially – if not more so – than the NBC broadcast network.

NBCU ad sales chief Linda Yaccarino talked about the value of “aggregation,” or accumulating audiences across niche networks in order to build the scale necessary to drive an efficient ad buy.

NBCU executives said the company had enlisted the help of 126 celebrities to bring the messag home. Bravo’s Andy Cohen talked about social media. Syfy’s Tricia Helfer offered a preview of new drama “Ascension.” Elizabeth Hurley took to the stage to promote E!’s first scripted series, “The Royals.”

“The Big Bang Theory” Celebrates “Star Wars” Day, Michael McKean Joins “Better Call Saul”

1 May 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

Plenty of news from Syfy today. The most exciting bit is that Tricia Helfer is returning to the channel, joining the mini-series Ascension, according to EW. Ascension follows a secret U.S. mission where hundreds were sent to settle in a new world. However, 50 years into the journey, a murder has everyone questioning their mission. Helfer’s character is described as “beautiful, manipulative and dangerous”– because Helfer portrays those qualities so well.

The channel is also developing a series with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, as reported by TheWrap. Clone is based on a graphic novel about a man who finds out that there are clones of him when one burglarizes his home. If they can find a male actor as talented as Tatiana Maslany, we just might be willing to overlook the inevitable Orphan Black comparisons.

Syfy is also adapting Ronin… because someone doesn’t realize there »
