"Mr. Robot" just concluded its first season. I spoke with creator Sam Esmail about it at length, and I have a review of the finale coming up just as soon as we use a dead puppy oven... "Come on!!!! I need to know what happened!" -Elliot What a fascinating, off-kilter, 100% "Mr. Robot" way to end this season. Everything about this show has always been off: the way characters so often are marginalized in the corner of a frame, or how we're so much inside Elliot's head that we feel like we're losing time right along with him. So it feels right — even if it may be frustrating for some — that the finale skips right past whatever Elliot and Tyrell did at the arcade, keeps Tyrell missing in action entirely, and just jumps us into the strange new world where fsociety has seemingly won and plunged the world into financial chaos. »

Ernie Johnson sure is a class act.
On Tuesday night at the Sports Emmys, the TNT host gave his award for best studio host to the daughters of late Espn anchor Stuart Scott, who lost his battle with cancer in January.

TNT’s Johnson knows a thing or two about fighting cancer. In 2006, he took a leave of absence during his battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He later returned as host of the Emmy-winning show “NBA on TNT” alongside Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith.
Scott’s daughters attended the 36th Sports Emmys on behalf of their father, who was honored for his service and dedication to sports media.

Odd "American Idol" Season 14 fact: Unless I'm missing something, every single remaining "American Idol" Finalist this season is from the Eastern or Central Time Zone. Daniel Seavey and Adanna Duru were the only two contestants from the West Coast and they're gone. Last week, the otherwise dismal Daniel got hosed by the "Idol" Twitter Save, in which his geographic core was disenfranchised if they happened not to be watching an online live feed. The "Idol" Twitter Save returns on Wednesday (April 8), but with all of the singers' hometowns watching the same feed, nobody can claim that they're being Seaveyed. And, once again, viewers from outside of the Et/Ct time zones have been cut out of the elimination process. Tonight's theme is Billboard Hits, so follow along and chime in with your own thoughts... 7:59 p.m. Et. Has anybody else lost all sense of how many people are still left on "Idol" this season? »

Update, 2:15 Pm: A whole bunch of new games in this year's 2015 Ncaa Tournament have already started today but the final scores for last night's match-ups are now in. Time zone adjusted and in and out of primetime, it was a 3-pointer for CBS. Unsurprisingly, Cincinnati's close 1-point win over Purdue leaped up from last year's game between Wofford and Michigan on the first Thursday of the 2014 tournament. Last night's 7 – 9:53 Pm game pulled in a 1.6/6 rating among adults… »
The Golden Globe Awards airing on NBC Sunday night suffered a slight ratings dip from last year’s ceremony, according to preliminary numbers — a downtick that’s softened by the fact that the 2014 show reached a 10-year high for the awards presentation.
Sunday night’s Golden Globes averaged a 12.6 rating/19 share in household ratings from the 56 markets metered by Nielsen. That’s down from the 14.1/21 that last year’s show notched, which translated nationally to a 10-year high in both total viewers, with 20.9 million, and matched a 10-year high in the key 18-49 demographic. (Nationally, the 2014 ceremony averaged a 6.5 rating »
