Fox’s The Orville landed in its regular Thursday time slot with a hair over 4 million total viewers and a 1.1 rating (per finals), expectedly down — 40 and 50 percent — from its second, NFL-boosted Sunday showcase.
Seth MacFarlane’s space dramedy thus veritably matched Pitch‘s first at-bat (4.2 mil/1.1) in the time slot a year ago.

With a Dark Knight rising, the birth of a fearsome foe and a cool twist on Penguin’s criminal empire, Fox’s Gotham appears to be bat on track after a patience-testing, Tetch-and-go season.
It is early, of course, but Season 4 portends to be a bit more focused, with the premiere zeroing in on Penguin’s new “license to (anything but) kill” initiative, which has taken a serious bite out of crime by regulating it — and thus earned the backroom endorsement of both the mayor and police chief. Gordon of course isn’t at first aware of, and even upon »

“A Christmas Story Live!” is set to air Dec. 17 as a three-hour telecast. Executive producer Marc Platt and much of the team behind Fox’s successful “Grease Live” production are reuniting for the tuner that revolves around a nine-year-old boy’s yearning for the perfect Christmas present: “a Red Ryder, carbine action, 200-shot, range model air rifle, with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time.”

Toys can often play an important role in a film, sometimes becoming the star. This is our list of the 20 most famous toys in film.

Merchandising began, and children everywhere could find either the toys featured in their favorite movies or toy versions of things from their favorite movies on the shelves of their local toy stores. Some toys also graduated from being props to being characters. First animation, then stop-motion, puppetry, and later CGI helped to bring them alive on screen.

And that’s why I was more than thrilled to head out for a special screening of Steven Spielberg’s iconic sci-fi drama that celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, and has been given the 4K restoration treatment in honor of its upcoming monumental birthday.
While I cannot make any real comparisons on a visual level to how his version compares to past iterations of Close Encounters, what I can say is that for over two-plus hours, I was absolutely fascinated by the wondrous spectacle Spielberg was able to create in this watershed cinematic event, and there aren’t many movies that after four »

As the networks prepare to launch their new fall TV seasons, Fox is making a change at the top. Michael Thorn has been named Fox’s new entertainment president, replacing David Madden, who is exiting the network after three years and is rumored to be in contention for the top AMC programming job (which has been empty since Joel Stillerman moved to Hulu).
Thorn was most recently executive vice president of development at 20th Century Fox TV, where he worked on series including the NBC hit “This Is Us,” as well as Fox’s “Empire,” ABC’s “Speechless” and CBS’ “Life in Pieces.” He reports to Fox TV Group chairmen/CEOs Gary Newman and Dana Walden, who announced the appointment on Wednesday morning.
