Ratings: Selfie and Love Story Gets Few Likes, S.H.I.E.L.D. Hits Low, Mindy Rises

2 hours ago

ABC’s Selfie didn’t get a whole lotta Instagratification with its Tuesday premiere, drawing just 4.9 million total viewers and a 1.4 demo rating.

But Manhattan Love Story had even fewer followers, leading out of that with 4.3 mil and a 1.3.

Selfie (which TVLine readers gave an average grade of “B”) and Love Story (“C+”) thus mark ABC’s lowest-rated comedy premieres ever, a rival notes.

Continuing ABC’s night, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (4.5 mil/1.7) fell 25 and 19 percent (hitting a demo low), while Forever (5.6 mil/1.3) dropped 19 and 28 percent.


CBS | NCIS (18.6 mil/2.6) added a few eyeballs versus its premiere but slipped 10 percent in the demo. »

ABC Family, HBO and MTV Lead GLAAD's Annual Lgbt Inclusion Study; CW Has No Regular Lgbt Characters

8 hours ago

GLAAD on Wednesday released its Network Responsibility Index, an annual study of Lgbt representation on television. For the first time, three networks were awarded the grade of “Excellent.”

ABC Family, HBO and MTV all earned top marks, making this the first time the Lgbt advocacy group has awarded that high honor to three networks. Achieving an “Excellent” grade will be more difficult in the future, however, as networks will now be required to include significant content with specifically transgender characters in order to be eligible.

Moving down the line, ABC, The CW, Fox, NBC, FX and Showtime are all ranked as “Good, »

MTV’s Happyland spins a tale as old as time: Boy meets girl, girl falls for boy, girl discovers she and boy have the same father.

Who knew Sons of Anarchy could get so poignant?

During a moment of crisis for Samcro on Tuesday’s episode of the FX drama, Bobby reflects on the club’s good ol’ days: “Remember when our biggest problem was which Mayan to kill?” Jax insists those were simpler times, but Bobby takes it a step further: “Simpler men.”

That statement seems particularly fitting for this week’s installment, which finds the motorcycle club getting into hot water with multiple allies — and realizing there’s very few places left to turn. Without further ado, here’s what went down on “Poor »

“Why Aren’T You All Turning Your Chairs? Turn Your Chairs! Turn Them! Turn Them!”

Oh dear. I am so sorry to begin this recap of The Voice‘s fourth round of Season 7 Blind Auditions with an all-caps rant, but come on, I’m not the only one who finds himself shouting and gesticulating wildly when Gwen, Pharrell, Adam and Blake ignore winning PowerBall tickets falling from heaven, am I?

The Mindy Project Recap: Evasive Maneuvers

15 hours ago

“You’re a perfect couple: You’re terrible people and you’re huge liars,” Cliff hollers at Danny in Tuesday’s Mindy Project, and he’s not wrong — at least not in this week’s episode.

After all, by the time Cliff’s frustration reaches its zenith, both Danny and his self-involved girlfriend have flung falsehoods at each other and repeatedly fibbed to the heartbroken lawyer. Plus, we learn Mindy hasn’t paid taxes in six years?!

It’s as if the docs’ romance has made them even bigger weirdos than when they were apart, as you’ll see while »

ABC's Selfie: Could It Be a 'Favorite'?

18 hours ago

Eliza Dooley has no real friends. And frankly, it’s not hard to figure out why.

In ABC’s new comedy Selfie, Eliza (Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan) is a narcissistic, social media-obsessed pharmaceutical sales rep, who considers her present-day Insta-fame redemption for those awkward, friendless teenage years.

But as Eliza observes in the first few minutes of Tuesday’s premiere, “Being friended is not the same thing as having friends.” It’s a lesson she learns the hard way, after she tosses her cookies twice en route to a business trip — upon learning that her co-worker boyfriend is, in fact, »
