TV Ratings: Fox News Scores Record Quarter, March Is Good to MSNBC's Maddow

12 hours ago

Who needs an election? For the cable news networks, the first three months of Donald Trump's presidency have thus far been quite good for business — better, for the most part, than the last quarter of 2016.

Sure, the new administration may not be showing much deference for the media, but it has been producing daily stories since the Jan. 20 inauguration. "Daily" is the key word there. While primetime viewership indeed swelled, total day is where some networks saw the most growth. Fox News Channel, for one, netted its most watched and highest-rated total-day quarter ever. Average viewership for the »

12 hours ago

Welcome to The Hollywood Reporter's "Everything to Know" series. Starting with Game of Thrones, THR's Westeros guru Josh Wigler will offer an in-depth guide about, well, everything there is to know about one particular topic within the complex universe.

He's a man who requires almost no introduction at all, but let's give him one anyway: Tyrion Lannister, mockingly known throughout the Seven Kingdoms as "the Imp" and "the Half-Man," well known for his gifts as an orator and strategist, perhaps even better known for his act of patricide and his prolific alcohol consumption, and better known still »

TV Ratings: Bubble Show 'Great Indoors' Drops in Monday Move

13 hours ago

Freshman comedy The Great Indoors was among the conspicuously few CBS series absent from last week's en masse renewals. And its prospects certainly won't be aided by its one-off Monday showing.

The Great Indoors dropped to a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49 in its shift from Thursday, losing nearly one-third of its last demo haul. Admittedly, a drop was a forgone conclusion without a lead-in from The Big Bang Theory, but the series was also off from the rest of the night's lineup — including an original Superior Donuts (1.1 adults) and repeats of Big Bang and Kevin Can »

Scarlett Johansson and Michael Che Play Virtual Reality Pictionary on 'The Tonight Show'

14 hours ago

Scarlett Johansson and Michael Che faced off against Jimmy Fallon and Dove Cameron on Monday night's Tonight Show for a game of virtual reality Pictionary.

Fallon went first, putting on his virtual reality headset and drawing his 3D image of a clown car. "School girl? Tomato pigtail?" asked Cameron before guessing the phrase correctly.

"Oh my God, I'm getting nauseous," said Johansson when it was her turn. 

"Square? Ten Commandments?" guessed Che, as Johansson got even more nervous while trying to draw a pinball machine. The key was making the image 3D, because as soon as Johansson started drawing the »

Demi Lovato Joins Jimmy Fallon for Latest 'Ew!' Sketch

15 hours ago

When female pop stars stop by The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, chances are pretty good they're going to have to relive their early teens in cartoonish fashion as part of Fallon's recurring "Ew!" sketch. Last night, Demi Lovato joined the ranks of Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande by playing the co-star to Fallon's "Ew!" character Sara, one of her "besties forever and ever" named Emily.

Sara and Emily discussed their upcoming Spring Fling dance, took emoji selifies ("or as I like to call them, emojelfies") and practiced kissing on pillows of Ed Sheeran and Mario Lopez before »

'Legion' Primer: What to Know Before the Season Finale

16 hours ago

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the first seven episodes of FX's Legion.]

It's hard to wrap the mind around Legion, the FX and X-Men series from Fargo creator Noah Hawley. Blame the multiple levels of reality, the battles being waged within series lead David Haller's (Dan Stevens) fragile mind, for the show's level of complexity. Add the words "Shadow King," as well as a surprise appearance from a man who looks like Two-Face in the penultimate episode of the season, and you can be forgiven for needing a dose or two of your favorite headache medicine.

As Writers Guild Talks Stall, a Jittery Hollywood Wonders What's Next

16 hours ago

The Writers Guild may or may not have deliberately set up its first two weeks of talks with AMPTP studio negotiators to fail, but fail they did, leading the union’s negotiating committee to publicly call on the WGA governing boards to conduct a strike authorization vote.

Whether the failure was the result of tough negotiations, bad faith, clever tactics or simply accidental, the question is: what happens now?

One can be certain the committee hasn't asked for a strike authorization vote without knowing the union would heed the call, especially as guild leadership sits on the committee ex »

Michael Wolff: How Trump Can (and Just Might) Kill At&T's Time Warner Deal

16 hours ago

Donald Trump says he is determined to keep his campaign promises. It is a mantra in the West Wing. All campaign promises have to be turned into executive orders, legislation or regulatory action. That’s the agenda. There’s an actual checklist on which staffers tick off each promise. One of those promises — falling somewhere behind extreme vetting, repealing and replacing Obamacare (well, um, cough, blame someone else for that), tax reform, immigration bans, military expansion, budget cutting, a Mexican border wall and making Nato allies pay up — is to block the planned merger of At&T and Time Warner.

'Planet Earth II' Leads BAFTA TV Craft Nominations

19 hours ago

Only Netflix's big-budget The Crown prevented the BBC from claiming a near clean sweep of the BAFTA TV Craft nominations, celebrating the best behind-the-scenes work on the small screen in 2016. 

The Golden Globe-winning show nabbed seven nominations, one ahead of the BBC/AMC co-produced spy thriller The Night Manager (of which there are now rumblings of a second season). 

However, neither Queen Elizabeth II or Tom Hiddleston could come close to Planet Earth II. The BBC's acclaimed natural history series nabbed nine BAFTA TV Craft nominations in the editing: factual, original music, photography: factual and »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Monday's Bates Motel.]

After nearly five seasons, A&E's Bates Motel finally went full Psycho during Monday's episode, putting a fresh twist on one of Alfred Hitchcock's most beloved features and the movie's most famed scene.
