2 hours ago | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The CW is the smallest television network and their TV shows draw far fewer viewers than the others. However, they still have to cancel and renew series. Will your favorites survive to see another season? Stay tuned.

CW shows this season (so far): The 100, Arrow, Beauty and the Beast, Cedric's Barber Battle, Dates, The Flash, Hart of Dixie, iZombie, Jane the Virgin, Masters of Illusion, The Messengers, The Originals, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, Reign, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, and Whose Line Is It Anyway?.

How does The CW decide what to cancel or renew? They look at a lot of different factors but »

Josh Gad gives us a look at the set of 2017’s Beauty and the Beast

31 July 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

An Instagram post from Josh Gad (Frozen) has confirmed that he has finished filming his scenes in 2017’s live-action Beauty and the Beast film. The picture shows him embracing co-star Luke Evans (Dracula Untold) on a snowy set for the film. The caption reads, “That’s a wrap! Will miss the cast of #beautyandthebeast especially my brilliant Gaston #LukeEvans.” See it here…

In the film, Gad plays Lefou, the bumbling sidekick to the arrogant and egotistical Gaston, who is played by Evans. 

Along with those two, Emma Watson (Harry Potter) and Dan Stevens (The Guest) will star as Belle and the Beast respectively, with Ian McKellen (X-Men: Days of Future Past) as Cogsworth, Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks) as Mrs. Potts, Kevin Kline (Last Vegas) as Belle’s father Maurice, Audra McDonald (Private Practice) as Garderobe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle) as Plumette, Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games) as Cadenza and »

Ratings: ‘Big Brother’ Dominates, ‘Astronaut Wives Club’ Up Thursday

31 July 2015 9:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Big Brother” was on the rise Thursday, teaming with repeats of “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mom” to keep CBS comfortably atop the night’s demo leaderboard.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Big Brother” averaged a 2.0 rating/8 share in adults 18-49 and 6.3 million viewers overall in the 9 o’clock hour, up a tick from last week and doubling up runner-up “Dateline” on NBC in 18-49. As the youngest-skewing broadcast show in its time period, “Brother” may have benefited from the departure of Fox drama “Wayward Pines,” which ended last week. CBS also was on top in the night’s opening hour with “The Big Bang Theory” (1.5/7 in 18-49, 7.2 million viewers overall) and “Mom” (1.1/5 in 18-49, 5.4 million viewers), and finished a close to NBC’s “Dateline” at 10 p.m. with “Under the Dome” (1.0/4 in 18-49, 4.6 million viewers overall), which was up slightly from last week (1.03 vs. 1.00) for a three-week high. »

What happens after “happily ever after”? In Descendants, if you’re the hero and heroine of a Disney fairy tale, you live in the enchanted kingdom of Auradon — a land of beauty and possibility. But if you’re one of Disney’s legendary villains, you are exiled to the miserable and forbidden Isle of the Lost. Now, a benevolent young king — himself the heir of Beast and Belle from Beauty and the Beast — offers a chance at redemption to the four offspring of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Cruella de Vil and Jafar with the opportunity to attend prep school in … Continue reading →

'Beauty and the Beast' Director Bill Condon Says Remake Is 'Really Magical'

31 July 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The upcoming live-action remake of Disney animated musical "Beauty and the Beast" is still a long way off, but that hasn't stopped director Bill Condon from gushing about the flick.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair promoting his new film, "Mr. Holmes," Condon also dished about his work on "Beast," which is currently in production. According to the director, the film was almost completely different when he first signed on: Disney originally didn't want it to be a musical. Sounds ridiculous, right? Condon thought so, too.

"I said, 'With all due respect, I think you're crazy,'" Condon recalled of his conversation with the studio. "'The songs are too good. You're going to spend all this time making a huge, gorgeous live-action "Beauty and the Beast" and not do "Be Our Guest"?'"

Aside from that major redirection (thank god for Condon putting his foot down), not much will »

Disney Guys Envisioned as Real People—See Prince Charming, Hercules, Tarzan and More Characters Come Alive!

30 July 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Thanks to Jirka Väätäinen, fantasy looks a lot more like reality. The artist, who hails from Helsinki, Finland, has envisioned male Disney characters in "real life," and the results are pretty darn magical. "This is a personal project and has no affiliation with Disney in any way," he writes on Bēhance. Using Photoshop, Melbourne-based Väätäinen imagined what characters from classic movies like Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid and Sleeping Beauty might look like if they appeared a little less cartoonish and a lot more like the supermodels you might see in the pages of Esquire or GQ.

Brick by Brick, The House Mario Built: The Nes Days

27 July 2015 12:04 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Nintendo Entertainment system was released in 1985 and retailed for $199 in the U.S.. The standard package included an 8-bit graphics console and two classic game controllers. Other bundles featured the Nes Zapper along with the supported Nes game Duck Hunt. If you were one of the luckier kids, your parents shelled out a few extra bucks for the Deluxe Set which featured all of the above, but also included the optional Robotic Operating Buddy, or R.O.B.. Nintendo released 17 launch titles, the first of 30 ‘black box games’, and they included 10-Yard Fight, Baseball, Clu Clu Land, the aforementioned Duck Hunt, Excitebike, Golf, Gyromite, Hogan’s Alley, Ice Climber, Kung Fu, Pinball, Soccer, Stack-Up, Tennis, Wild Gunman and Wrecking Crew.

Ratings: Fox’s ‘Wayward Pines’ Ends on Strong Note

24 July 2015 9:23 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox’s “Wayward Pines” ended its season on a high Thursday, standing as the night’s — and most likely the week’s — top-rated scripted original in the key young-adults demo. Also of note on Thursday was another season high for ABC’s “Rookie Blue,” even while skedmates “The Astronaut Wives Club” and “Mistresses” slid.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, Fox’s “Wayward Pines” averaged a 1.2 rating/5 share in adults 18-49 and 3.9 million viewers overall in the 9 o’clock hour, matching its high in the demo. “Wayward” was already summer’s top-rated scripted program in adults 18-49 with a 1.92 rating in “live+3,” and its finale should also stand as the full week’s No. 1 scripted original in “live plus same-day.” There’s been no word regarding a possible second season of the M. Night Shyamalan drama starring Matt Dillon.

Elsewhere, CBS won Thursday behind “Big Brother” (1.8/7 in 18-49, 5.8 million »

Game of Thrones’ Bryan Cogman Will Try to Pull a Sword in the Stone Remake Out of the Rock of Obscurity

23 July 2015 6:31 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Game of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman is working on a live-action remake of The Sword in the Stone, the latest in Disney's string of reboots for its postwar animated classics — a list that presently includes Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book, and Dumbo, among others. The original 1963 Sword in the Stone was a retelling of young King Arthur's lessons with Merlin (all of which, in that telling, seem to involve turning into an animal) and included classic songs like "That's What Makes the World Go Round" and "Higitus Figitus."  Cogman's script is expected to use mournful cello versions of those songs as the soundtrack to a bloody massacre of the entire Pendragon dynasty. »
