World Series Clincher Paces to Be Fox's Best Non-nfl Rating Since 2011's Game 7

42 minutes ago

Wednesday's tight World Series Game 7, which saw the visiting San Francisco Giants win their third championship in five years, also delivered a victory for Fox Sports and the Fox network. In the 56 metered markets, which are admittedly very preliminary numbers, Game 7 got a 15.2 rating/24 share. That projects to become Fox's highest-rated primetime telecast of the broadcast season, and the network's best — excluding Super Bowl Sunday — since January 2013's Nfc Playoffs. The number also bests the combined averages of ABC, CBS and NBC on the night. Also read: Fox Sports Braces for World Series Ratings Dip But Thinks Royals »

46 minutes ago

Stephen Colbert honored Canadian hero Kevin Vickers, the House of Commons' sergeant-at-arms who took down a lone gunman last week, by asserting he's the real-life version of “Die Hard” cop John McClane. “To Hell with Bruce Willis,” Colbert said. “This Canadian just put the “ay” and  in ‘yippee ki yay motherf–ker.” See video: Bruce Willis Is a Hilarious Badass in ‘Die Hard’ Blooper Trailer As far as American action hero comparisons, that's about as high as they get.

Aaron Stanford Is a Blast to the Past in Latest '12 Monkeys’ Trailer (Video)

2 hours ago

Aaron Stanford is mankind's best chance at survival in the latest trailer for “12 Monkeys,” Syfy's upcoming sci-fi reboot. The “Nikita” star plays Cole, the show's tightly-wound, time-jumping protagonist. The same character was portrayed by Bruce Willis in Terry Gilliam‘s 1995 movie “Twelve Monkeys,” from which this show has been loosely adapted. But aside from identical names and missions, the two Coles aren't much alike. Syfy's version is considerably more high strung, for starters. When Cole meets Dr. Railly (played by “Suits” star Amanda Schull) and tries to explain the severity his mission, his bedside manner is lacking. See video: Syfy's '12 Monkeys’ Series. »
