The CW latest bubble show renewal odds

12 hours ago

The CW is edging closer to deciding the fate of its six bubble shows. As we’ve previously reported earlier this month in Death Watch, Hart of Dixie and The 100 are likely to be renewed, while The Carrie Diaries is likely to be cancelled. It’s the other three remaining limbo dramas — Beauty and the Beast, The Tomorrow People and Star-Crossed — that have been the biggest question marks.

We’re now hearing freshman sci-fi shows Tomorrow People and Star-Crossed are now looking less likely to return. Yet sophomore series Beauty and the Beast is still up in the air — on »

'Arrested Development' creator Mitch Hurwitz signs deal for new Netflix series

13 hours ago

There may not be any new Arrested Development news to report right now, but its creator has decided to stay put at Netflix. The streaming service confirmed Tuesday that Mitchell Hurwitz has signed a multi-year deal to create, develop, and produce original series.

Netflix and the Emmy-winning Hurwitz teamed up in 2011 with plans to revive his beloved cult comedy Arrested Development, and 15 new episodes were released last May. Hurwitz seems to have enjoyed his partnership with Netflix, telling EW last year: “They worked with me as true creative partners, and it so happens that being creative is their business model. »

Colbert shows Letterman his real personality on 'Late Show'

13 hours ago

We’re used to seeing Stephen Colbert in-character on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, looking supremely confident as a right-wing master of the media universe. But Colbert came across a bit more humble during an appearance on CBS’ The Late Show on Tuesday night. It was Colbert’s first appearance on the show since landing the much-coveted gig to take over as Late Show host.

“I’m going to do whatever you have done,” Colbert told David Letterman, who will retire as the longest-serving late-night host next year. “It seems to have gone pretty well, Dave.”

Internet TV case: Justices skeptical, concerned about Aereo

14 hours ago

Grappling with fast-changing technology, Supreme Court justices debated Tuesday whether they can protect the copyrights of TV broadcasters to the shows they send out without strangling innovations in the use of the internet.

The high court heard arguments in a dispute between television broadcasters and Aereo Inc., which takes free television signals from the airwaves and charges subscribers to watch the programs on laptop computers, smartphones and even their large-screen televisions. The case has the potential to bring big changes to the television industry.

There was a good measure of skepticism about Aereo’s approach, sometimes leavened with humor. Chief Justice John Roberts »

15 hours ago

Fans have been buzzing since last week about the possibility of No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani joining The Voice as a mentor next season. While NBC is keeping tight-lipped on the subject, The Voice vet Adam Levine said he’d be very excited if there’s any truth to the rumors.

“I’m a huge fan — she’s a wonderful human being, and I love her to pieces,” Levine said of Stefani. “She’s so talented. She’s just great.”

Fellow coach Blake Shelton chimed in and said that, while he has never actually met Stefani, he’s very aware of who she is. »

16 hours ago

On April 22, Discovery’s Emmy-winning reality series Deadliest Catch returns for its tenth season (Tuesdays at 9 p.m. Et). Viewers will have to wait until Opilio season to see the return of the Cornelia Marie, and the arrival of Mandy Hansen, Capt.

NBC's 'Crossbones' first trailer: See John Malkovich as pirate king

17 hours ago

John Malkovich plays the legendary Blackbeard in NBC’s first action-filled trailer for its upcoming pirate-drama series Crossbones. Below, the Red and Dangerous Liaisons actor threatens, kills, and romances, not to mention downright Malkoviches the scenery, as he pressures a crafty physician (Richard Coyle) into helping him find a treasure. “I’m not the devil … I cast out the devil,” he declares.

Crossbones is written by Neil Cross (Luther, Doctor Who) and marks Malkovich’s first series-regular TV role. Expect some to draw comparisons to Starz’ Black Sails, which is also set around New Providence Island pirates wrestling over the key to a treasure. »

'The Sopranos' finale: Michael Imperioli shares his opinion on what it meant

19 hours ago

EW has been taking a deeper look at some of the most iconic TV finales from shows such as Murphy Brown, Friends, and Breaking Bad, but none were as controversial as the series finale of The Sopranos.

When the HBO series ended in 2007, many questions were left unanswered for fans concerning the fate of patriarch Tony and his family when the show cut to a black screen right before the credits. Creator David Chase has said in past interviews that “there was nothing definite about what happened” in the final scene at the diner but “if you look at the final episode really carefully, »

Discovery’s ambitious Everest adventure will still result in a special that will air on the network.

After scrapping plans Sunday  to air Joby Ogwyn leaping from the summit in a wing-suit, the cable network has decided to create a documentary about last week’s avalanche tragedy instead.

NBC News’ Peacock Production was set to produce the special and was already filming Ogwyn at Everest base camp when the avalanche struck, killing at least 13 people and injuring more.

'The Voice' has weakest Monday ever

21 hours ago

NBC’s The Voice switched to live shows for the first time this cycle on Monday night, but a chunk of viewers shrugged off the next phase of the hit reality competition series.

The Voice was down 15 percent from last week’s episode in the adult demo to mark its lowest Monday performance ever (chart below), yet still once again charted as the night’s top-rated show. The Voice typically tends to dip somewhat when it moves away from the spinny-chairs audition rounds. At least the show provided some high-wire drama when a Top 12 contestant endured a live TV microphone fail. »

SundanceTV’s Rectify — a drama that follows one man’s journey to rebuild his life after being released from death row — left fans with quite the cliffhanger at the end of season 1, and if you just can’t wait for season 2 to start back up in June, you’ll definitely want to take a peek at the two exclusive stills we have from premiere.

'The Originals': Leah Pipes talks Cami's (sort of) love triangle, more fire stunts, and 'our darkest episode yet'

23 hours ago

Being a human in New Orleans isn’t something most people would see as a problem. But in the world of The Originals, it’s a major disadvantage, especially if your uncle has a hex that’s literally driving him mad and you’ve got some sort of weird almost love triangle happening with a vampire and a hybrid. Welcome to Cami’s world.

Last week, we watched Cami beg for Genevieve to help Kieran only to have Klaus ruin it all. And let’s not forget that bit where Klaus found out about Cami and Marcel’s night together. »

23 hours ago

John Turturro has replaced Robert De Niro as the star of Criminal Justice, the seven-hour HBO miniseries that was once conceived as a James Gandolfini vehicle. Based on a 2008 BBC drama of the same name, Justice was slated to be The Sopranos’ star’s high-profile return to an HBO series, and he had filmed the pilot before he died last June. HBO recruited De Niro in September to assume the lead role, but as the Hollywood Reporter initially wrote, he’s now out, as is his Tribeca Films production company.

Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski to cover the Kentucky Derby for NBC

22 April 2014 6:16 AM, PDT

NBC is adding Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski to its Kentucky Derby telecast as fashion correspondents next week, illustrating how the network’s coverage now reflects one of the most female-friendly televised sporting events of the year.

The two figure skaters, who were the breakout stars of NBC’s Sochi Olympics broadcast team, will comment on the fashionable outfits worn by members of the rich and celebrity-filled audience who try to avoid spilling mint juleps on their designer duds, the network said Tuesday.

The image of cigar-chomping race fans no longer applies to horse racing’s signature event. Slightly more »

George R.R. Martin reacts to 'Thrones' adding rape scene

21 April 2014 5:54 PM, PDT

Game of Thrones fans are used to being shocked by deadly plot twists. But Sunday night’s episode divided viewers in a very different way with an incestuous rape scene. In the fourth season’s third episode, titled “Breaker of Chains,” Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) forces himself on his former lover/sister Cersei (Lena Headey) while they’re beside the corpse of their murdered son (Jack Gleeson).

Back in September, Coster-Waldau described the scene to EW as “a very dark encounter, passionate encounter” and explained that “on a visceral emotional level, she feels disgusted by his hand. It goes from bad to worse. »

Netflix to increase prices

21 April 2014 2:29 PM, PDT

Haven’t signed up for Nextflix yet? You might want to get on that sooner rather than later if you ever plan on becoming One of Us.

The streaming service announced Monday plans to hike up the price of new memberships by one or two dollars, depending on your country — a measure set to take effect “later this quarter,” according to a letter to investors. Existing members would be allowed to stay at their current pricing — $7.99 for those in the U.S. — for “a generous time period” before eventually paying the new higher price.
