J.J. Abrams, Stephen King Team Up for Limited Series ‘Castle Rock’ on Hulu

17 February 2017 5:22 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

J.J. Abrams and Stephen King are teaming up for a limited series on Hulu.

The surprise announcement came Friday evening, thanks to a mystery image posted on the official Twitter account of Abrams’ company Bad Robot. The tweet signaled fans to a trailer for the series, titled “Castle Rock,” an ode to the fictional town in Maine, which is a popular setting in many of King’s novels.

Fans of Stephen King, known as Constant Readers, will recognize “Castle Rock” as the setting in many of King’s books, including “Cujo,” “The Dead Zone,” and “The Body.”

The trailer winds a path past many famous locations found in King’s books — like ‘Salems Lot, the Shawshank State Prison, Pennywise (the clown from “It”), the name Annie Wilkes (the crazed uber-fan in “Misery”) and more — before zooming out on a map of Maine.

‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ Ratings Surge Has Suddenly Made Late Night Competitive Again

18 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Donald Trump has already reignited at least one war: The one in late night.

In the nation’s 56 biggest markets – the ones where Nielsen has meters installed to report overnight ratings instantly – “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” was No. 1 on every night this week.

According to CBS, that marks the first time “The Late Show” has won every night of the week in the metered markets since Colbert took over in September 2015. “The Late Show” was up by double digits vs. last year all week; on Tuesday, the show was up 33% vs. the same night in 2016.

Among overall total viewers, “The Late Show” averaged 3.01 million viewers for the week of Feb. 6-10, putting it in first place overall for the second week in a row. It was Colbert’s best showing since his premiere week. NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” averaged 2.88 million viewers, while ABC’s »

For the record, Peter Gadiot is fully aware that he’s playing the CW version of Mr. Mxyzptlk, one of the zaniest — and traditionally unattractive — characters in the DC Universe.

“I was as surprised by anyone when I did the research and saw how he is usually,” Gadiot tells TVLine ahead of his character’s debut on Monday’s Supergirl (8/7c). “I think they did an interesting take in that they kept the essence of the character true to the origin, but they made him more relatable and updated. »

Two New Twin Peaks Teasers Just Came Out and They’re Fantastic

16 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Unfortunately the new Twin Peak isn’t premiering until May on Showtime, but fortunately Twin Peaks is premiering in May on Showtime. The mere fact that the David Lynch classic is even back after all this time is still a mystery to me. And if that hype wasn’t already high, these two new teasers are going to get people even more excited. I’ll be the first to tell you that these two teasers reveal absolutely nothing about the show’s 3rd season. What we do get however, are a pair of short, eerie clips soundtracked by Angelo Badalamenti that signify the very

‘Billions’ Review: A Radical Proposal for Season 2 Fans Won’t Like Right Now, But Could Love Later

22 minutes ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When “Billions” Season 1 ended two things happened: In the narrative, Damian Lewis’ hedge fund manager Bobby “Axe” Axelrod and Paul Giamatti’s U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhodes growled menacingly at each other from the demolished interior of Axe’s formerly luxurious office space. You see, Chuck had convinced Axe there was a bug somewhere on his turf, forcing him to tear it apart himself; wasting time, effort, and anxiety for what amounted to be a decent, if not exceptional, prank.

Jim Harper would be proud, but “Billions” isn’t a comedy. We need to feel the weight of this supposedly high-stakes story, not laugh at it. Once Axe had finished tearing apart his fancy schmancy office, the two started spitting fire at one another, making threats and promises; tossing insults back and forth; exchanging ever-building anger at the very existence of their opponent. But they didn’t say or do anything revelatory. »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Posters Suggest There’s More than One Jedi

1 hour ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I think it’s safe to say when the title “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” was released the internet went on a theory frenzy, and rightfully so.  Each time even the tiniest clue comes out about the Star Wars franchise we tend to rush to coming up with predictions on what the series has in store for us.  However, a full title for a movie is obviously a lot to chew on.  Recently we have even more clues about the title based on the international media outlets who are promoting the movie on Twitter.  As Star Wars News Net points out,

Video game characters have been emulated in just about every single way possible.  That obviously goes for characters in the Super Mario universe as well.  When I came across this Bowser woodwork on Reddit I had to share it with you guys.   It’s not simply because of the high quality of the work, which is certainly has.  But it’s also because of the dedication as well as commitment to excellent the mad who made this had for his son. While we don’t have a ton of details into the story, the title of the Reddit post is “My Dad’s Woodwork.”

Lifetime on Saturday premiered its Britney Spears biopic Britney Ever After. Was it a trashy good time, or a positively toxic viewing experience?

I Totally Forgot to Watch Britney Ever After Tonight!

By the way I’m kidding.  Britney Ever After is currently on as of this writing.  But no, I never intended to watch it.   For the record if you’re watching it right now, the movie follows the rise and fall, as well as the successful return, of pop star Britney Spears.   I’ll give you the abbreviated version. “Hit me Baby One More Time” killed it in the last 90s.  Fling with Justin Timberlake.  That ended.  Britney becomes the biggest female pop star on the planet.  Next up is psychotic relationship with Kevin Federline and she has a complete meltdown by shaving

No Chance We See an Aaron Gordon and Zach Levine 2016 Dunk Contest

12 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

We’re 100% sure we won’t be technically seeing an Aaron Gordon and Zach Levine dunk contest this year.   While Gordon should be the odds on favorite to win it this year, Lavine tore his Acl in February.  Even still, Lavine wouldn’t have participated anyway.  Levine took the title in 2016 but going against Aaron Gordon wasn’t easy.  People say that when Aaron Gordon looked as if he were sitting down and dunking the basketball last year, that that was the best dunk of the contest. Though it’s hard to argue against Levine’s rim rocking free throw line jam. The title

Dear Steve Kerr: Please Run Westbrook at Point with the Warriors

We’re all looking forward to the 3 point content and the dunk contest tonight but so far the most childish, humorous and kind of pathetic story out of NBA All-Star weekend is the awkwardness between Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant.  I mean, really guys?  Who cares?  Seriously, just stop caring already.  Russell Westbrook goes out of his way to make it seem that he doesn’t care about what anyone does and he let’s his basketball do the talking.  I love Westbrook as a player but I’m just not buying it as a man. Is it really worth it to hold

Zion Williamson Needs to Be in the NBA Dunk Contest Tonight

If you haven’t been following Zion Williamson then shame on you.  This isn’t just your ordinary number 3 high school basket prospect in the country.  This is the world’s best dunker since Zach Levine.  If you think I’m exaggerating then think again.  The stuff this guy is doing in games, let alone practice is absurd.   Williamson was at it again today as he added another 6 monster dunks to his highschool highlight reel. His dunks featured an alley-oop slam, a ridiculous 360, a windmill, a huge two-handed jam, a tomahawk dunk, and he capped it off with a reverse that
