Tuesday Ratings: ‘Voice’ Finale Drops, ‘MasterChef Jr.’ Hits High

17 December 2014 9:29 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The finale of NBC’s “The Voice” ruled the roost on Tuesday but the clincher of the fall edition was down 20% in adults 18-49 from last year to the lowest marks for a “Voice” finale to date.

Fox’s “MasterChef Jr.” (pictured) hit a series high number with its 8 p.m. finale seg. ABC’s second airing this month of the holiday chestnut “A Charlie Brown Christmas” put up respectable demo numbers, topping NBC’s “Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas.”

CBS’ “NCIS” led the 8 p.m. hour as usual with the largest audience of the night, 17.2 million viewers and the second-highest 18-49 demo number (2.3 rating/7 share) of the night behind the two-hour “Voice” (3.2/10, 12.7 mil).

NBC noted the 9-11 p.m. “Voice” delivered the highest 18-49 number of any network (excluding Fox’s World Series coverage) since Sept. 30.

“MasterChef Jr.” (1.7/6, 5.5 mil) hit a series high with its second-season finale. That’s »

TV Ratings: 'Voice' finale, 'NCIS' dominate Tuesday

17 December 2014 8:46 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Tuesday, December 16, 2014. The latest season finale was, predictably, far below last December's finale and a hair below last May's finale among young viewers, but still helped NBC rule Tuesday in the key demo. "NCIS," however, dominated its hour overall and helped CBS comfortably win in total viewers. CBS' overall win was boosted by a weak performance from NBC's "Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas" special, but hindered by relatively low numbers for "NCIS: New Orleans" an "Person of Interest." The season finale for "MasterChef Junior" was up a bit week-to-week. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, NBC averaged a 2.6 rating for Tuesday night, tops in the key demographic. CBS was second with a 1.8 key demo rating, followed by the 1.2 key demo ratings for ABC and Fox. The CW averaged a 0.5 key demo rating for the night. Overall, though, CBS averaged an estimated 13.33 million viewers and an 8.4 rating/14 share for Tuesday primetime, »

Reflect Back on 50 Years of 'Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer' in This Clip

15 December 2014 6:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

During my childhood, there were two animated specials that were must-see TV in the month of December: A Charlie Brown Christmas and Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer. This year sees that latter title, inspired by a holiday poem, is celebrating its 50th anniversary – making it the longest running holiday special in television history. CBS News recently did a segment on the enduring popularity of the cartoon that has been delighting children and adults alike since way back in December of 1964. If you aren’t yet feeling the holly-jolly Christmas vibe, maybe this will help get you in the spirit. A few of the interesting things discussed in the segment include how it took Japanese animators 18 months to film all the of special’s stop-motion footage, which was created...

Ratings: Football Dominates First Week of December; NBC Tops Among Networks

10 December 2014 5:56 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With many of primetime’s top series either in repeat (“Big Bang Theory”) or wrapped for the fall (“Walking Dead,” “Scandal”), football dominated the weekly program rankings even more than usual last week.

Three NFL games and a college football conference championship game led the way in the adults 18-49 demo, beating out firstrun series offerings including “The Simpsons,” “Modern Family,” “The Voice” and “Sons of Anarchy.”

NBC closed the week strong with “Sunday Night Football” (7.1/20 in 18-49, 21.15 million viewers overall), which was the No. 1 primetime program in 18-49 as well as total viewers — the fourth straight week the franchise has topped 20 million viewers.

It was followed by Espn’s “Monday Night Football” game between the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets (4.1/13 in 18-49, 11.75 million viewers overall), NFL Network’s contest between the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears (3.2/10 in 18-49, 9.11 million viewers overall) and Saturday’s college football nailbiter on »

‘Agents of Shield,’ ‘Flash’ Rank Among Tuesday’s Ratings Heroes

3 December 2014 9:18 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tuesday was a good night for superhero-themed shows, as holiday specials helped provide a boost for ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” while the start of a crossover storyline with “Arrow” helped CW’s “The Flash” pick up some speed.

NBC’s “The Voice” remained the night’s top series in young adults, teaming with “Chicago Fire” to put the net on top overall. CBS aired repeats of its crime dramas and easily won in total viewers.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, ABC’s premiere of the special “Toy Story That Time Forget” averaged a 1.9 rating/6 share in adults 18-49 and 6.8 million viewers overall in the 8 o’clock hour — falling well shy of the 2013 Halloween-themed “Toy Story” special (3.1 in 18-49) but good enough for a second-place demo finish in its timeslot. It was followed by the special “A Charlie Brown Christmas” (2.1/6 in 18-49, 6.8 million viewers overall), which »

TV Ratings: 'Flash'/'Arrow' Tuesday crossover is big, 'Charlie Brown' boosts 'S.H.I.E.L.D.'

3 December 2014 8:55 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Tuesday, December 2, 2014. The CW got huge numbers for the first part of the week's "Flash"/"Arrow" crossover event, but it was "The Voice" leading NBC to victory among young viewers and an procedural repeats leading CBS to an overall win. For "The Flash," it was the biggest audience since the season's second episode and tied for its best 18-49 demo number since that second episode. ABC was second for the night in the key demo as "Toy Story That Time Forgot" and "A Charlie Brown Christmas" took "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." to its best numbers in months. Of course, "S.H.I.E.L.D." was also boosted by not having to face a new "NCIS: New Orleans," but no matter the cause the Marvel drama hit its best figures since the season premiere in September.

StreamFix: 'Charlie Brown Christmas', 'Almost Famous', More

2 December 2014 6:23 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Here's the best of Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Crackle for the beginning of December. So cheer up, Charlie Brown!   Netflix "Almost Famous" Fifteen years after Cameron Crowe's amazing film about his time as a young "Rolling Stone" intern made us fall in love with Kate Hudson, it remains a singular accomplishment. The immersive, heartfelt movie has an incredible soundtrack and great performances across the board. Never forget that Katy Perry had to change her name from Katy Hudson so as not to be confused with Goldie Hawn's Oscar-nominated daughter. "American Beauty" Kevin Spacey's existential crisis. Annette Bening's fury. Thora Birch's woefulness. Chris Cooper's scariness. These are the kinds of things that make a Best Picture. The dream sequences involving Mena Suvari certainly weren't a detriment.  "Batman Forever" Jim Carrey's performance as the Riddler in this cartoonish romp might be the most »

TV Review: ‘Toy Story That Time Forgot’

1 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Effortlessly picking up where “Toy Story of Terror” left off, Pixar has delivered a second splendid ABC holiday special plucked from one of its signature franchises, “Toy Story That Time Forgot,” again moving a peripheral character into the equivalent of a starring role. Funny, warm and not afraid to include gags clearly intended more for parents than their kids, it’s the kind of production that keeps the franchise fresh (and crassly, merchandise flying off shelves) while waiting for yet another sequel.

The conceit could hardly be simpler: Little Bonnie has a play date with a friend, and takes a bag of her toys along. But once she gets there, the boy has a topnotch game console, and the more tangible diversions are quickly abandoned.

Left alone, the toys encounter a group of dinosaur-like playthings (a cross-pollination, essentially, of the “Transformers” and “He-Man” strains) that appear to be somewhat unclear on the whole “toy” concept. »

‘Peanuts’ Voice Cast Announced

27 November 2014 11:02 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Charlie Brown, Snoopy and friends look set to take the CG world by storm in their upcoming feature length film, Peanuts. Based on the characters created by Charles M. Schultz for the comic-strip of the same name, Peanuts will see the world through the eyes of the young. Anyone worth their salt will already be planning on fitting A Charlie Brown Christmas into their Christmas schedule, and from the trailer it certainly looks as though the makers are trying to capture the magic of the original strip. As such, a young voice cast has been assembled, which doesn’t include any immediately recognisable names in its ranks, unless you’re a youngling yourself with a keen ear for Disney/Nickelodeon stars.

Here’s the cast, and we’re very happy that stars haven’t been crammed in to slap over posters and TV spots:

Watch: New Trailer for ‘Peanuts’ Movie

18 November 2014 12:43 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Snoopy dominates in a new teaser trailer for the animated “Peanuts” movie, due out Nov. 6, 2015, for 20th Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios.

The computer animated 3D movie, based on Charles Schulz’s iconic strip, opens with Snoopy sleeping on his doghouse with Vince Guaraldi’s classic “Linus and Lucy” theme playing as Woodstock and his bird friends work on Christmas decor.

Snoopy then wakes up in Paris as his World War I flying ace in pursuit of the Red Baron, then returns to the initial setting. The trailer concludes with a brief scene of Charlie Brown coming into a movie theater to see the movie.

Fox acquired the feature film rights in 2012 to Schulz’s comic strip and set “Horton Hears a Who!” and “Ice Age: Continental Drift” helmer Steve Martino to direct the toon.

Schulz’s son and grandson, Craig and Bryan Schulz, are writing the script with Cornelius Uliano. »

Spellbinding Art for A Charlie Brown Christmas

18 November 2014 9:43 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The holiday season is fast approaching, and to prepare for Christmas, artist Nicolas Delort has created a magical illustration inspired by A Charlie Brown Christmas. Delort is the same artist who brought us the wicked cool art for It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. His latest endeavor turned out just as amazing. As I stare at this piece, I can't help but just feel complete and utter happiness. This is what he had to say about it:

"I wanted to do Great Pumpkin and this one as a diptych of sorts right from the start and as soon as the Great Pumpkin sketch was approved, I had the idea for Charlie Brown Christmas.

"Both share the “boy and his faith” theme but while Great Pumpkin is all about Linus’ optimism and hope, Charlie Brown Christmas is more about Charlie’s disappointment and resentment towards what the holiday has become…so »
