Fall TV Poll: What show should be shown the door next?

3 November 2011 8:45 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Look at that face. Could you cancel that face? Well, if you’re Fox… maybe. Allen Gregory is still standing for the moment, thanks to a plum time-slot between The Simpsons and Family Guy, but can the freshman show hang on after so-so ratings? As one of several shows to premiere this past week, Gregory’s fate hasn’t been decided yet. Add its name to the purgatorial list that includes high-profile newcomers Pan Am, Terra Nova, Once Upon a Time, and Last Man Standing. Keep reading to see which shows are in danger as we slide into November, and »

Past and present success

Here's what he had to say about costumes and consequences and actors Mélanie Thierry, Grégoire »

CBS gives full-season orders to 'Person of Interest' and 'Unforgettable'

25 October 2011 12:15 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

There are questionable full-season pickups and then, there are the no-brainers. This one is the latter: CBS has picked up the back nine episodes of Person of Interest, the network’s latest procedural that stars Michael Emerson and Jim Caviezel.

The drama about a former CIA agent and mysterious billionaire who attempt to prevent violent crimes has averaged a 3.0 rating/10 share in adults 18-49 and 14 million viewers.

CBS also ordered the remaining nine episodes of Unforgettable, the Poppy Montgomery starrer about a former police detective with a rare ability to remember everything. The drama has averaged a 3.3/8 in the key demo and 13.9 million viewers. »

Fall TV Death Watch: Where will the axe fall next?

20 October 2011 4:43 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Earlier today, Lynette “Reaper” Rice and James “Hellfire” Hibberd (sorry, guys!) unleashed the latest, season-to-date numbers for the new shows airing this fall in their weekly Death Watch report. Some of the bottom feeders were already given full season pickups (Ringer, Hart of Dixie), but others are teetering dangerously on the edge of cancellation.

So, PopWatchers — who will be next to go? We’ve already seen The Playboy Club, Charlie’s Angels, How To Be A Gentleman, and Free Agents bite the dust, but the next picks may not be so easy. Will it be Maria Bello’s sadly underwatched Prime Suspect, »

'The X Factor' hits high note on Sunday, 'Pan Am' makes hard landing

17 October 2011 9:11 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Despite little promotion, The X Factor snagged a surprise berth on Sunday and ended up clobbering the entertainment competition, which routinely takes a hit from football on NBC.

Naturally, the Peacock dominated on Sunday because of the gridiron action; the Vikings versus the Bears earned a 5.7 rating/13 share among adults 18-49, according to early results. But The X Factor was the night’s most popular entertainment program in the demo, earning a 3.3/8 and 8.6 million viewers. That’s down 11% from Thursday’s competition but hey, you didn’t know it was on. It wasn’t confirmed to air until after Saturday »

'Revenge,' 'Suburgatory' get full season pickup

13 October 2011 1:55 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

No need for vengeance, Revenge fans, the ABC drama just received a full season order.

As we predicted after Wednesday night’s ratings reversal, ABC has ordered nine more episodes of the show, giving the drama the full 22-hour boat. Last night the show averaged 7.9 million viewers and a 2.7 rating in the adult demo, just barely edging out CSI to win the 10 p.m. hour. The show has been fighting with the CBS veteran every week since it premiered. But whether in first place or second in the hour, ABC is happy with any show that stays out of third — finding new 10 p. »

'Secret Circle,' 'Hart of Dixie' get full seasons too

12 October 2011 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The CW just gave full-season orders to The Secret Circle and Hart of Dixie, meaning all three of the network’s new dramas will get 22 episodes (the network picked up Ringer a couple hours ago).

None of the shows have given The CW a new breakout hit. Of the two just picked up, Circle has fared better: With top-rated Vampire Diaries as a lead-in, Britt Robertson’s Circle has averaged 2.7 million viewers and a 1.2 rating, while Rachel Bilson’s Hart has averaged 1.8 million viewers and a 0.8. Here’s CW president Mark Pedowitz with his thoughts:

Sarah Michelle Gellar's 'Ringer' gets full season

12 October 2011 12:54 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Smg is going the distance!

The CW just gave Ringer a full-season order, sources say. The move comes on the heels of Ringer moving up a tick in the ratings Tuesday night for the first time, delivering 1.7 million viewers and a 0.8 in the adult demo. We’re also hearing the Ringer season finale will reveal Gellar’s character is a triplet.*

Ringer is the first new fall drama to score its “back nine” episodes. Fox’s New Girl, NBC’s Up All Night and Whitney, and CBS’ 2 Broke Girls have also landed full-season orders so far. Keep up with all »

Fresh Clips from 'Retreat' and 'Paranormal Activity 3'

12 October 2011 12:20 PM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

MTV has premiered two new clips from a pair of upcoming genre films starting with a fifth teaser for Paranormal Activity 3 -- this one's not for the kiddies. Directed by Catfish duo Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, the sequel arriving in theaters October 21 takes place in 1988 where young sisters Katie and Kristi befriend an invisible entity who resides in their home. The second piece of footage comes from Samuel Goldwyn Films' Retreat (review), which stars Cillian Murphy (Sunshine, 28 Days Later), Thandie Newton (Vanishing on 7th Street, 2012) and Jamie Bell (Death Watch, King Kong). Carl Tibbetts makes his feature directorial debut on the film, which "finds Murphy and Newton heading to a remote island cottage to rebuild their frail marriage.

NBC shows faith in 'Harry's Law,' six scripts ordered

11 October 2011 6:18 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

NBC’s Harry’s Law just might earn a stay of execution. The David E. Kelley legal drama starring Kathy Bates launched last spring to fair ratings, but has struggled since joining the network’s fall schedule. Airing Wednesdays at 9 p.m. against comedy hit Modern Family and reality show The X Factor, as well as veteran Criminal Minds, the most recent episode delivered 8.2 million viewers (pretty decent) and a 1.2 adults 18-49 demo rating (yikes).

Despite matching the performance of the canceled Playboy Club in the demo, NBC isn’t giving up on the show. The network just ordered six scripts for the series, »

'Pan Am' takes a dive, 'Housewives' ties series low

10 October 2011 9:07 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Jet lag, already? The ABC dramas took some serious hits in the adults 18-49 demographic, with new series Pan Am dropping 27% to a 1.9 rating/5 share and 6.4 million viewers, according to preliminary ratings. (Death watch alert! When a show hits the 1 rating range, its chances for renewal drop precipitously. Just saying).

Desperate Housewives also decreased 10% from last week, earning a 2.7/6 and 8.4 million. It tied its series low, even though it was ABC’s best performing show for the night. America’s Funniest Home Videos earned a 1.4/4 and 6.6 million and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition logged a 2.0/5 and 7.3 million.

'How to Be a Gentleman' cancelled

8 October 2011 9:19 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

In case yesterday’s announced move to the Saturday night Phantom Zone wasn’t a clear enough sign of How to Be a Gentleman’s fate, here’s another: Production on the Kevin Dillon series is shutting down.

Gentleman is easily the highest-rated show to get axed so far this fall, having failed to live up to the expectations provided by its giant lead in, The Big Bang Theory (bad reviews didn’t help, the show ranked 42 out of 100 on Metacritic). The comedy joins NBC’s Playboy Club and Free Agents in the fall boneyard.

CBS pulls 'How to Be a Gentleman' from Thursday slot, moves it to Saturdays

7 October 2011 4:07 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The Gentleman is being shown the door on Thursday: After only two weeks in the choice 8:30 p.m. slot, the struggling CBS comedy How to Be A Gentleman that stars Kevin Dillon (Entourage) is being shipped to Saturday nights at 8:30 p.m. starting next weekend, the network announced today.

Although Gentleman ranked second in its time slot last night (7.8 million, 2.5 adults 18-to-49 rating), the numbers drop from its lead-in, The Big Bang Theory (13.6 million, 4.4) was steep. Rules of Engagement, which is entering its sixth season, will take Gentleman’s old slot effective Oct. 20, with a repeat of The Big Bang Theory »

The CW cancels 'H8R,' adds 'Ringer' repeats

6 October 2011 3:17 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Later H8R. The CW is pulling its awkward celebrity encounter reality show from Wednesday nights.

After the series dipped down to 1.1 million viewers and a 0.4 in the adult demo last night, The CW yanked the show from its lineup. On the series, celebrities would confront people who passionately disliked them, often with pretty uncomfortable results. Repeats of Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Ringer will get some additional sampling by airing in the slot instead.

H8R is the second show killed off today, joining NBC’s Free Agents in the fall TV graveyard (we didn’t actually include H8R »

'Free Agents' canceled by NBC

6 October 2011 9:59 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Yup, it happened: NBC has canceled freshman comedy Free Agents.

The Hank Azaria comedy dropped sharply after its premiere four weeks ago and settled at a 3.3 million viewers and a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. Repeats of new comedy Whitney will replace the show.

Before the season started, Azaria told EW he expected the show to go for at least 13 episodes, saying new NBC entertainment chief Robert Greenblatt would give the show awhile to find its audience:

“I’m pretty sure we’ll do 13 of these at least,” Azaria said. “Although you really never do know. I mean, the two network shows »

'Modern Family' rules ratings, 'Free Agents' on chopping block

6 October 2011 8:51 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The Wednesday night ratings game gave predictable numbers last night: Most shows were steady or down slightly as they settled into their fall grooves.

Fox led the night overall with a 90-minute The X Factor (11.5 million, 3.9 adult demo rating), which topped 8 p.m. The reality show launched its boot camp phase and its final rating will likely match last week’s number in the afternoon nationals. Factor was followed by a special Raising Hope (6.2 million, 2.3).

In second place, CBS’ Survivor (10.5 million, 3.1) was about on par, followed by Criminal Minds (13.3 million, 3.8) bucking the trend of the night by climbing 6 percent and »
