4 hours ago

Trying to decide what the most riotous moment was from Comedy Central’s Roast of Justin Bieber is like choosing your favorite cupcake at Sprinkles in Beverly Hills. You can’t settle on one.  While the roast is a prime platform for stand-ups to bare their best fangs, rarely — if ever — do you see comedic alter egos take the podium. But that’s what happened during tonight’s broadcast when Will Ferrell’s Anchorman Ron Burgundy took a break from “hosting SpikeTV’s Your Mother… »

Two made-for-tv shows – the iHeartRadio Music Awards and the Kids’ Choice Awards – snagged the top spots on Nielsen’s Twitter TV ratings for the week ended Sunday.

‘Nightly News’ Wee-Hours Eyeballs Poked Out Of Nielsen Ratings

8 hours ago

NBC News no longer will be able to factor those wee-hour re-runs of its Nightly News into the broadcast ratings, after media buyers asked the network to stop running their clients’ ads in those rebroadcasts. Starting today, those re-broadcasts on Gannett stations would not include national ads. Lacking national spots, Nielsen does not rate the broadcasts, which cannot then be merged into the franchise’s ratings. We’re imagining the happy dance being performed over at ABC… »

Last Man has been heavily DVR-ed, so it likely will close some of the… »
