Ratings: USA Rookie Drama ‘Mr. Robot’ Surges in Week Two
The audience for USA drama “Mr. Robot” grew nicely in its second week, making the show among the year’s top-rated cable series launches.
In Nielsen’s Live+3 estimates, which include same-night viewing and DVR playback within three days, the July 1 episode of “Mr. Robot” averaged a 1.11 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.2 million viewers overall. It shot up 36% in the demo and 13% in total viewers from the show’s June 24 premiere.
That pilot episode of “Mr. Robot” was released early online, and may have cut into the same-night ratings for the show’s linear premiere. USA estimated that the premiere had garnered about 3 million views across multiple non-linear platforms in the four weeks before it bowed on the network.
In adults 18-49, “Mr. Robot” has become the calendar year’s No. 2 scripted series premiere on cable — behind only AMC’s “Better Call Saul.” In Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” ratings, »

German Media Titans ProSiebenSat.1, Axel Springer in $16 Billion Merger Talks
German broadcast group ProSiebenSat.1 and publishing giant Axel Springer are in merger talks that could lead to the creation of a business worth around Euros 14.4 billion ($15.9 billion).
According to the Wall Street Journal, negotiations are at an early stage and the merger would face regulatory and anti-trust challenges. A move by Springer 10 years ago to buy ProSiebenSat.1 failed after opposition from Germany’s media watchdog Kek and the country’s anti-trust body. The media landscape has changed since then, with the rise of digital rivals. Last year, the Federal Administrative Court over-ruled the Kek’s objections to a merger, and the more competitive landscape would probably nullify any anti-trust concerns.
ProSieben, which is worth around Euros 9.7 billion ($10.7 billion), owns a network of TV channels that had a 28.9% share of Germany’s free-tv market in the first quarter. It is an avid consumer of Hollywood content, and has a licensing deal with Warner Bros., »

Teen Wolf Recap: Without a Tracy
Guys, what the bleep-bloop happened to Tracy? Less than a week ago, she was merely a sweet, normal high-school student — ignoring her penchant for randomly puking up black gunk and feathers, of course — but after Monday’s Teen Wolf… I don’t know what she is.

Well, that’s not entirely true. I know she’s a Kanima, a fact Scott and his pals discovered after a trip to Doctor Deaton went south — and I mean Tracy’s-back-opened-and-her-spine-became-a-whipping-tail south. (Seriously, that was the »
UnReal Recap: There's Something Off About Mary
The following recap contains spoilers for this week’s episode of UnReal.
And that pains me to say, because despite all of her backhandedness, manipulation and just-plain-wrong, self-serving moves throughout the season, I like Rachel. But I also liked my old cat Nestor, who was a scratching, hissing jerk to everyone who ever visited my apartment; doesn’t mean I didn’t gladly give him up to a »

You can flash your abs and your bad attitude. You can punch a hotel ballroom wall. You can even make Nigel Lythgoe feel like he just got steamrolled by the Hot Tamale Train by surviving to the Green Mile, then giving an “eh, I’m gonna drop out now” shrug of the shoulders.

Chasing Life Ep on Natalie's Discovery, April's Setback & More Season 2 Scoop
Chasing Life kicked off its long-awaited second season Monday, and because it’s not enough for April to merely juggle a wedding and a new career — you know, on top of her ongoing cancer battle — the writers also decided to throw the mother father of all curveballs at Ms. Carver.
I’m referring to the final moments of the premiere, in which Natalie stumbled upon a manuscript (“Chasing Life”?!) written by her father. This, of course, came after April learned she isn’t in remission, »
