Ratings: ‘Quantico,’ ‘Ouat’ Premieres Fail Fourth-Place ABC

1 hour ago

ABC settled for fourth place in TV ratings on Sunday, with lackluster starts for “Quantico” and “Once Upon a Time.” While “Secrets & Lies” didn’t quite kill it either, that debut at least fared fine internally for the tough time slot. NBC easily finished first last night, thanks to “Sunday Night Football.” CBS was runner-up with an NFL overrun — the rest of its shows reaped the benefits. Fox bested ABC in the key 18-49 demographic, though their spots were reversed among total viewers.

Ava DuVernay’s Netflix Documentary ’13th’ Drops Powerful Trailer (Video)

2 hours ago

Ava DuVernay‘s Netflix documentary “13th” released an official trailer on Monday morning, and it’s one almost certain to polarize. The “Selma” director’s film is named for the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads, “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.” She focuses on that latter part, which speaks to the American prison system’s mass incarceration issue. To get her point-of-view across, DuVernay utilizes a mix of archival footage and testimony from activists, politicians, historians and formerly incarcerated people. »

Drake hasn’t abandoned his acting roots, which are on full display in his new short film “Please Forgive Me.” The rapper dropped the 20-plus-minute action movie overnight exclusively on Apple Music. “Please Forgive Me” originally had a release date of Sept. 30 — apparently, Drake couldn’t wait.

Matt LeBlanc to Return as ‘Top Gear’ Host, BBC Confirms

4 hours ago

(Lone) gentleman, start your engine: Matt LeBlanc will return as the sole host of “Top Gear” for at least two more seasons, the BBC confirmed Monday morning. Previously, it was unclear if the “Friends” star would be the face of the BBC Two series’ upcoming 24th season. The show’s ratings weren’t very good after Jeremy Clarkson and the boys left, and LeBlanc himself was cagey about a comeback when asked recently by TV critics. Still, it’s on, and LeBlanc will be joined by Chris Harris and Rory Reid, with regular appearances from Eddie Jordan, Sabine Schmitz and The Stig. »

‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ Review: Tim Burton Gums Up the Works

14 hours ago

The very title “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” conjures a delightfully eccentric cross between Edward Gorey and the X-Men, and there was a time when one could expect that director Tim Burton would know exactly what to do with this sort of material. The film offers the occasional flash of delectable weirdness from the man who once gave us “Beetlejuice” and “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure,” but for most of its seemingly interminable running time, “Miss Peregrine’s” has all the breeziness and joy of wading through aspic. Working from a screenplay by Jane Goldman (“Kingsman: The Secret Service”), adapting the novel. »
