Of the five networks, The CW has the fewest hours of primetime to fill but they're not finding it any easier to find hits. Most of their returning shows are way down year-to-year and some of their new series are struggling. Which will be cancelled or renewed? Stay tuned!
New CW shows (so far): The Originals, Reign, and The Tomorrow People.
How does The CW decide what to cancel or renew? They look at a lot of different factors but the ratings play an important role. The higher the ratings, the better chance a show has of surviving. Here's how the network's shows are doing so far: »
Beijing Intl. Film Festival organizers have given this year’s event a stronger international flavor and more high-tech elements, moves that reflect the Chinese industry’s desire to go global. Festival runs April 16-23.
One big change? This fourth edition features an opening-night screening — something that is standard at other festivals, but which the first three Beijing fests dispensed with, in favor of a pomp and circumstance show befitting the city’s status in the emerging world order and its powerhouse backers, the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television and the Beijing city government.
“The norm for major international film festivals around the world is for the opening film to enjoy a good reputation and respect within the industry. To reflect the international … and market-oriented nature of Bjiff, the organizing committee decided on ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ ” a festival spokesman says.

When you wish upon a star...you get a night of Disney magic and music! Following last week's controversial switch-up, week five of Dancing With the Stars' 18th season reunited the celebs with their original pro partners for routines set to songs from new and old Disney movies, including The Lion King, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and Frozen. Alas, one couple's happily ever after came to an early end with the show's first elimination since week two. Let's recap! See more behind the scenes pics of [...] »
Let's go to the happiest place on Earth: the ballroom! Dancing With the Stars went all out (animation included!) for its Disney Night on Monday, April 14, which featured the nine remaining pairings performing dances to classic Disney songs from films such as Frozen, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and more. After the polarizing Switch Up twist last week, which resulted in some lackluster performances, the celebrities returned to their original dance partners, making for a magical night of competition. Plus, former DWTS champ Donny Osmond stopped by to serve as Disney Night's guest judge, so the pressure was on. Alas, one celeb's time in the ballroom didn't have a fairy tale ending. So »

Ever since Disney grossed a billion dollars on Alice in Wonderland back in 2010 (something I’ll never understand), the House of Mouse has been eager to create live-action adaptations of all their animated classics. From The Jungle Book to Cinderella, the studio is digging deep into their catalogue in hopes of bringing back some of their most beloved films.
We’ve known for quite some time that Disney was looking to put together a live-action take on Beauty and the Beast, but until today, we hadn’t heard anything other than that they had hired a writer. Now, thanks to Film Divider, we’re learning that Bill Condon is rumored to be in talks with the studio to direct. This news should be taken with a grain of salt, as it hasn’t been confirmed by any type of official source. However, if you give it some thought, it actually makes some sense. »

Though it’s taken a few years to come to fruition, Disney’s billion-dollar-grossing Alice in Wonderland kicked off a new trend for the studio in 2010. It has slowly been working on live-action adaptations of some of the studio’s classic animated films, and we’ll see the next one this May in the form of Maleficent, which tells the Sleeping Beauty story from the villain’s point of view. After that, we have Kenneth Branagh’s live-action Cinderella set for release in March 2015, Jon Favreau is directing a live-action take on The Jungle Book for release in October 2015, and there is also a redo of Beauty and the Beast in the works. While Disney set a writer on Beauty and the Beast early last year, we haven’t heard much more about the project in the interim. However, if a new report is to be believed, the studio may »

From the now-iconic opening note of that incredible beginning sequence, viewers of The Lion King knew they were in for a very special treat: A Disney animated movie that — thanks to its compelling story about the circle of life, an all-star voice cast that included Jeremy Irons, Matthew Broderick, and James Earl Jones, and that music — would appeal to adults just as much as the kids that begged their parents to take them to theaters.

Bill Condon has had one crazy career: going back to the bizarre sequel Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh, Condon went on to direct the critically acclaimed Gods And Monsters and Kinsey. He also helmed the award-winning musical Dreamgirls on the way to bringing us both parts of Twilight: Breaking Dawn. Now, it looks like he may be embracing his musical experience with a live action adaptation of Disney's Beauty And The Beast. Following Disney's current trend of adapting their animated »

Beauty And The Beast has enchanted audiences worldwide, and it feels like every year there's a new, thinly-veiled stab at it. It's a flexible story, of course: guy is a monster, girl is lovely, she sees through his grossness, he accepts her fabulousness. Disney is here to brush away the CW's Beauty And The Beast and stuff like Beastly, however, to reclaim the throne. The Beast is comin' back, y'all. Film Divider's Twitter account recently revealed that Disney, attempting to relaunch their animated works into live action, has found a director: Expect Breaking Dawn and Gods and Monsters' Bill Condon to direct Disney's live action take on Beauty and the Beast. pic.twitter.com/5Ia03vRU6a. Film Divider (@FilmDivider) April 10, 2014 Condon is best-known as the architect for the final two fairly insane Twilight movies. Condon's a Hollywood lifer at this point, having helmed musicals like Dreamgirls, biopics like »

Anna Kendrick and Jennifer Aniston were both all smiles while filming their new movie Cake on Monday in La, but they weren't together - and for good reason. In the film, Anna's character, Nina, comes back as a ghost after committing suiciding to haunt and taunt Jennifer's character, Claire. However, Anna didn't look very ghostly on set, mulling over choices at craft service as she walked around on her first day. Their costar Sam Worthington split his time between the two actresses, and he'll be torn between both women in the film, too - as he copes with the death of his late wife, Nina, he develops a relationship with Claire, which we saw as he and Jen filmed together in a cemetery. Jennifer transformed herself for this role with a darker 'do and a fake scar, and Anna may be able to give her a few tips after her »

Continuing on with this weekly series I’m doing here at the site, we’re talking the top 25 Oscar winners in just about every single one of the Academy Award categories out there for us to discuss. Aside from the short categories and likely something harder to rank like Best Sound Editing or Best Sound Mixing as I’ve mentioned, I’ll be hitting them all over the coming weeks, including of course the big eight categories, two of which have already received this treatment. I’m also potentially going to do one that doesn’t exist (a fictitious Best Ensemble category), but that’s just an idea I currently am toying with. We’ll see about that one, but for now, we’ll stick to reality. Today I’ll be knocking off another one of the technical categories, with this one being the formerly popular and now kind of bemoaned Best Original Song field. »

Before Anna Kendrick sang about dongs all over the world on Saturday Night Live this weekend, the vocally talented host went full Disney for her monologue, reinterpreting Beauty and the Beast's "Belle" (you know, the one that starts with the whole town saying bonjour!) to apply to the show. It'll make you nostalgic for the original song, plus it's fun to see the whole gang (even Lorne Michaels!) get in on the action. »

If you weren't blown away by Anna Kendrick's song-and-dance monologue (set to the tune of "Belle" from Disney's Beauty and the Beast), then you were probably obsessing over her fit-and-flare dress. The sleeveless navy number featured a front-zipper, fitted waist, and circle skirt. Lucky for Us, the dress is still available -- although it's not exactly a bargain. The Madison Ave. Collection Hallis Dress by Kate Spade New York, available on katespade.com, will set you back $698. According to the website, "The Madison Ave. Collection began in 2013 [...] »
video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player The first clip of Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis on Two and a Half Men is here, and their chemistry is as amazing as you'd expect. Game of Thrones season four premiered last night. No spoilers here, but it was as racy, gory, and shocking as you'd expect - and it crashed HBO Go. The Shameless season four finale also featured a last-second shocker that no one saw coming - even the cast was in the dark! Legendary actor Mickey Rooney died at 93 on Sunday. He was one of the last surviving stars of the silent film era. The royal tour is under way! See the adorable photos of Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Prince George, and try to fight back the urge to pinch George's little cheeks.

Anna Kendrick hosted SNL for the first time last night, and given that she's Anna Kendrick, it wasn't really a surprise that her monologue was a song. That said, the exact song choice was kinda out of nowhere and pretty delightful! They reworked the lyrics to Beauty and the Beast's bouncy "Belle" (y'know, the song at the beginning where Belle talks to all the people in her little town), with Anna hopping along and singing her greetings to the various cast members. Watch the whole thing below! »

Anna Kendrick is a Nasty Girl.The "Pitch Perfect" star hosted "Saturday Night Live" last night, where she broke into song four different times.But our favorite musical moment came during a sketch called "Dongs All Over the World," where she, Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong, Aidy Bryant and newcomer Sasheer Zamata rapped about ... well, dongs all over the world.The ladies all sang about bypassing famous tourist attractions like the pyramids and Mona Lisa to get down with men in every country ... and featured a cameo from Icona Pop."Keep a tight schedule and you can't go wrong, you'll see none of the country but all of the dongs," Anna rapped. "9 p.m. get off the plane, 9:01 go find the dongs, 9:02 destroy the dongs, 9:03 back on the plane."Kendrick also sang a little from "Beauty and the Beast" during her monologue and dressed as Ariel from "The Little Mermaid" for another, »
