'How to Get Away with Murder': Can the Keating Five actually get away with it?

28 January 2015 5:12 PM, PST

The Keating Five have done everything in their power to get away with murder. Throughout the first half of How to Get Away with Murder’s freshman season, those involved in Sam’s (Tom Verica) death removed, eventually burned and disposed of the body, and even left the murder weapon in plain sight. Now comes the tricky part: Keeping their stories straight.

'Agent Carter' ratings drop again: Does this hurt female Marvel heroes?

28 January 2015 9:26 AM, PST

Agent Carter ratings are still slipping: Tuesday night's episode dropped to 4.6 million viewers and a 1.3 rating, down 13 percent from its last original episode two weeks ago. The CW's The Flash (4 million, 1.3) is right on the heels of its Marvel rival, tying the ABC series in the adult demo. There's still a lingering perception among some in Hollywood that female-centered comic-book titles are fandom kryptonite. Marvel, despite its regular drip-drip-drip release of films, hasn't made a female-protagonist movie title since 2004's Electra and doesn't have any on its slate until 2018 (Captain Marvel). Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has said he's very »

'Empire' is on fire. Should we be sweating burn-out?

28 January 2015 7:30 AM, PST

This season, Fox has been trying to field new hits by making shows based on pop culture its adult audience can recognize—from the comic book pulp of Gotham to the Ya tragicomedy of Red Band Society, the next gen House of Backstrom to the next gen Seinfeld of Mulaney. In many of these efforts, we see the Fox-Backstrom Theory of Contemporary Generational Conflict at work: Optimistic, crusading Millennials suffer or revolt against the worldview of those miserable, narcissistic elders. In Gotham, idealistic, reform-minded Jim Gordon and older, cynical, that’s-just-the-way-it-is Harvey Bullock bicker and brood as they vainly try to bring justice to Dystopiatown. »

'The Flash' boss answers burning questions

27 January 2015 6:02 PM, PST

The Pied Piper uncovered some new secrets—just not the ones we were hoping for. Though it seemed like the introduction of Hartley Rathaway (Andy Mientus) during Tuesday’s episode of The Flash would lead to Harrison Wells’ (Tom Cavanagh) big yellow secret coming out, the Pied Piper only outed Wells’ decision to launch the particle accelerator despite knowing there was a chance it could explode. Never fear, it sounds like we’ll get more information on the Reverse Flash soon, according to executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, who answered some burning Flash questions following a screening of "The Sound and the Fury »

Two other accomplices that were part of a Russian spy ring reportedly got away. The news comes just days before FX’s Russian spy drama The Americans returns for its third season.

Viewers would rather watch old Super Bowl ads than new dramas

27 January 2015 9:55 AM, PST

Okay, this is a tad embarrassing for all involved: CBS' annual special Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials delivered more viewers by far (10.8 million) than any other broadcast show Monday night, and was within a tenth of a point of matching the highest-rated series among the coveted adults 18-49 demographic (with a 2.1 rating). Yup, re-watching old Budweiser and Doritos ads struck more viewers as a fine way to spend the evening than checking out ABC's The Bachelor, Fox's Sleepy Hollow or NBC's State of Affairs. In fact, this was the special's highest ratings since 2010, up 11 percent from last year. It's unclear if »
