CBS’ Stalker on Wednesday night found 9.1 million people following it, paired with a 2.0 demo rating — the exact same numbers that CSI returned to a year ago in the time slot.

Versus CSI’s May finale, Stalker (which TVLine readers gave an average grade of “B”) was down 10 percent in audience but up a tenth in the demo.

CBS' Stalker: Will You Follow It?

13 hours ago

I hope you weren’t planning on sleeping well tonight, TVLine readers. After watching Stalker, I don’t see how you can.

The CBS procedural drama, which debuted Wednesday at 10/9c, was as paranoia-inducing as its title would suggest — but will you pursue the series in the weeks to come?

The drama focuses on the Lapd’s Threat Assessment Unit, led by Lieutenant Beth Davis (Nikita‘s Maggie Q). The unit handles all stalking cases that make waves in the city, and in this debut hour alone, the team has got its hands full.

Nashville Recap: Juliette's Baby Daddy Revealed?

13 hours ago

Well stick a straw hat on my head and call me Minnie Pearl: It looks like Juliette’s not going to give birth to demon spawn Jeff Fordham’s child, after all.

In a surprising move for a primetime soap, this week’s Nashville indicates the drama won’t pursue a who’s-the-daddy storyline with the eminently watchable — if not unfailingly faithful — Ms. Barnes.

Hallelujah, y’all.

I’ll expound upon my relief later in this recap, which also covers Rayna’s ire about the media wanting the dirt on her relationship with Luke (guys, she’s not being »

Dana Delany Joins FX's The Comedians as Billy Crystal's Wife

18 hours ago

Dana Delany is venturing into (mostly) uncharted waters: the half-hour comedy.

The TV vet and multiple Emmy winner has joined the cast of FX’s upcoming Billy Crystal-Josh Gad sitcom The Comedians in a recurring role, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Delany will play Sharon, the longtime wife of Crystal’s veteran-comic character.

This marks the Body of Proof actress’ first major half-hour comedy gig in nearly three decades (since 1987’s short-lived NBC sitcom Sweet Surrender).

Delany will juggle her Comedians duties with her regular role in Amazon’s Hand of God, which is on the verge of snagging a series order. »

Fox Pulls Utopia From Tuesdays, MasterChef Junior to Claim Time Slot

18 hours ago

Fox’s grand “social experiment” is being scaled back to one day a week sooner than planned.

Effective immediately, Utopia will now air only on Fridays at 8/7c. (As originally envisioned, it was to drop the Friday telecast after six weeks.) Its Tuesday time slot will ultimately be inhabited by Season 2 of MasterChef Junior, starting Nov. 4.

Until then, an encore of the hour-long Family Guy/Simpsons crossover episode will fill the void on Oct. 7, followed by repeats of the Simpsons and Bob’s Burgers season openers (on Oct. 14).

Post-season baseball coverage occupies Fox Tuesdays on Oct. 21 and 28.

A to Z Star Cristin Milioti Talks Hitting the Rom-Com Jackpot (Again) — Plus: Why Himym's Ending Was 'Brave'

20 hours ago

How I Met Your Mother‘s titular mama Cristin Milioti is finally getting her happy ending — or is she?

On NBC’s new rom-com A to Z (premiering Thursday at 9:30/8:30c), Milioti stars as the rational Zelda, who gets swept away by Andrew, a hopeful romantic played by Ben Feldman (Mad Men). But, as we are informed in the pilot, the pair only dates for eight months, three weeks, five days and one hour.

So what happens after the courtship? (Hopefully nothing quite as sad as the actress’ fate on How I Met Your Mother — although, as you’ll see, »

Dave Annable would like you to know that any resemblance between his Red Band Society character character, Dr. Adam McAndrew, and ER‘s Dr. Doug Ross are entirely coincidental.
