Fast National ratings for Thursday, May 23, 2013
Summer programming has begun, which means ratings are a little quieter than normal. "Rookie Blue" premiered for its fourth season on ABC to the best ratings it has seen since its Season 3 premiere. Its lead-in, "Motive," premiered in its regular timeslot with a loss of about a million viewers from its preview episode on Monday. The "Save Me" premiere on NBC earned a modest 3 million viewers.
CBS' reruns won the night with 6.6 million viewers and a 4.3 rating/7 share in households. ABC was next at 5.3 million, 3.5/6, followed by Fox at 4.3 million, 2.6/4, NBC at 2.6 million, 1.8/3 and the CW at 799,000 and 0.6/1.
The 18-49 demo went to Fox's reality shows, however, with a 1.7, followed by CBS at 1.4, ABC at 1.2, NBC at 0.8 and the CW at 0.2.
Thursday hour by hour:
CBS: "Big Bang Theory" rerun (8.8 million viewers, 5.6/10 households)/"Two and a Half Men" rerun (7.6 million, 4.9/8)
Fox: "Hell's Kitchen" (5.5 million, »
The first night following the conclusion of the television season saw the Big Four roll out some new summer programs, though none made much of a mark. ABC did Ok with “Motive” (pictured), and Fox with “Does Someone Have to Go,” but it was a soft start for NBC comedy “Save Me.”
Fox won Thursday among young adults while CBS prevailed in other categories despite an all-repeat lineup.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, won the night’s opening hour in 18-49 with “Hell’s Kitchen” (2.1/7 in 18-49, 5.5 million viewers overall), finishing a bit behind a repeat of CBS’ “Big Bang Theory” at 8 and then pulling ahead of the Eye’s “Two and a Half Men” at 8:30. The time-period debut of “Kitchen” rose 17% above its season premiere on Monday of last week (1.8) opposite season finales, and was Thursday’s No. 1 series in several categories, including men 18-49 (2.0/7) and »

Has it really been 20 years since Billy Joel released his last pop album? Somehow, it’s true: Though the Piano Man has toured extensively, won a Tony, and even put out a collection of classical compositions over the last two decades, he hasn’t dropped an original chart-topper since 1993′s River of Dreams.
But why? Well, according to an extensive interview in this week’s New York Times magazine, the answer’s simple: “I got bored with it,” Joel says. “I wanted to write something other than the three-minute pop tune even though that’s an art form unto itself. »

Mere days before Netflix’s May 26 Arrested Development binge, boozy-witchy Bluth matriarch Lucille has generously taken time out of her day-drinking to snap some sense into the damsels of Disney. They could all stand to lose some weight, by the way. You want your belt to buckle, not your chair. (Click the microphones on and off to hear the audio.)

As we march bravely on through 2013, Thn will take a nostalgic yet critical look at the 53 Walt Disney Animated Classics, from Snow White to Wreck-it Ralph, through the obscurity of Fun And Fancy Free to the second Golden Age of Beauty And The Beast. These are the films the Walt Disney company are most proud of, the ones that hold a special place in our hearts, the ones that still cost a fortune to buy on DVD. And this week we’re thinking goose with The Aristocats.
1970/ 78 minutes
Directed by Wolfgang Reitherman
The Aristocats was the last film to be approved by Walt Disney himself, and was the last to end with “A Walt Disney Production” credit. The torch effectively passed to veteran animator and director Wolfgang Reitherman, who apart from animating characters for umpteen Disney films, had been entrusted with 101 Dalmatians, The Sword In The Stone and The Jungle Book. »

Take a breath an relax, Supernatural fans. The next season of your favorite spooky show is not in danger, but the CW is making a little change from business as usual. Supernatural is moving to Tuesdays. Let us school you on all the pending time shifts.
Yes, in case there was any doubt, you will also see the Vampire Diaries spin-off, The Originals on Tuesday nights, following Supernatural at its new time. The spin-off is definitely a reality. Hey, maybe Supernatural fans will start watching.
You will notice that Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast are also relocating. In the new schedule, that pair happens on Monday nights. The Carrie Diaries switches to Fridays, but we aren’t positive about Nikita‘s schedule because the spy show’s final six-episode season is short and will happen sometime “late in the fall,” network boss Mark Pedowitz said to TVLine. »

New Nikita season 4 is in the works,new spoilers coming soon. Hey Nikita fans. We've got sorta good news for you guys. It turns out that the CW has renewed Nikita for a new season 4. However,it's an extremely tentative renewal as they gave it a short episode order of less than half a regular season. It's currently unknown exactly how many episodes the series will get,but according to TV Line, Producer, Craig Silverstein, did confirm on Twitter that the show received a short order, and they're hearing that it's around just six episodes. So, that definitely makes the show sound like it's hanging on for absolute dear life to say the least. Along with that, CW also gave renewals to The Carrie Diaries, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Hart of Dixie, Arrow ,and Beauty and the Beast for the 2013/2014 season. Vampire Diaries is currently the network's highest rated show. »

Fast National ratings for Thursday, May 16, 2013
A big night for finales brought mixed results for the broadcast networks. On the plus side, the series finale of "The Office" scored the show's biggest ratings in more than a year. "Scandal" brought in its largest total audience ever and matched last week's series high in adults 18-49.
On the negative side, the "American Idol" finale plummeted for a second straight year, losing more than 6 million viewers and 44 percent of the 18-49 audience compared to last year's conclusion. "The Big Bang Theory" ended its season slightly down from last week for CBS. "The Vampire Diaries" and "Beauty and the Beast" were about even with last week for The CW.
(Note: Updated averages for Fox now include the seven-minute runover out of primetime.) Fox did still lead the night, averaging 13.6 14.3 million viewers and an 8.3 rating/14 share in households in primetime. CBS (10.35 million, 6.5/11) came in second, »
A lot of things happened in the "Beauty and the Beast" season finale. There was death. There were big revelations. And absolutely everything ended on a cliffhanger!
There were many busy beasts in this one.
Revelations and cliffhangers
When considering this season finale, keep in mind one important thing: The episode was written before anyone knew that "Beauty and the Beast" was getting a second season.
That means that all of the revelations -- few of which are explained -- and all of the cliffhangers might never have been resolved. Seriously, ponder that horror for a few moments.
That being done, let's move on to the revelations:
Gabe can't be cured without killing Vincent. The biology of how all this worked was confusing, but death did seem to be the outcome.Anti-beast pills can be very effective.Catherine's father isn't her father.Catherine's father is the mysterious man shooting at »
Tonight is the night I'm going to alienate myself from the Beasties - because I found "Never Turn Back" to be the most underwhelming episode since we found ourselves fighting our way through the return of Vincent's past red-haired love interest.
There was one relatively (pun!) unique reveal in the finale and the rest was fairly straightforward.
It turned out that Vincent didn't need to take more pills to be cured because the pill that Tyler synthesized using a combination of the ones left over from Cat's mom and information she stole from Muirfield created a perfect destruction tool against Vincent's animal DNA. He was being cured without his body ingesting further toxins.
That win was short lived as Tyler and Gabe needed Vincent's entire lymphatic system to create a pill to do something similar to save Gabe's life. But they needed his "beastie boy" and not the nearly cured man he was becoming, »

The CW is no longer the home of rich kids behaving badly. With "Gossip Girl" and "90210" both coming to an end this season, the new series orders for 2013-14 look to build on the baby network's success with "Vampire Diaries," "Arrow" and veteran "Supernatural."
Sci-fi and fantasy mixed with an occasional period drama represent the new world order at CW (no "Emily Owens, M.D." this season), which was the only broadcast network to completely revamp its schedule for fall.
Audiences have already had a peek at one of the newbies -- "Vampire Diaries" spinoff "The Originals" aired as a backdoor pilot in April -- while another is a remake of a cult favorite and yet another is based on a young adult book series.
Here's a rundown of the five new dramas The CW presented to advertisers at its 2013 upfront on May 16 at New York City Center.
The CW has long been one of the best supporters of Our Kind of Shows, and at this year’s Upfronts they put even more money where our hearts are. Of the six new shows announced for the fall and winter schedule, four are for us: The Originals, The Tomorrow People, The 100, and Star-Crossed. Now of course more than one has that trademark The CW soap opera-ish spin on it, but hey, not Every show is for every one of us.
Here to assist in our prejudging are synopses for all, via Deadline, and maybe even better, clips and/or TV spots. There’s not really anything new for The Originals, but fans will want to see it all again anyway. The Tomorrow People features the wonderful Mark Pellegrino so it’s my favorite of the four.
The 100 (pronounced “the hundred”, not “the one hundred”) has an encouraging clip, »
