Fast National ratings for Thursday, July 2, 2015. "Big Brother" dominated the 9 p.m. hour on Thursday night and helped carry CBS to easy victories in all measures on a sluggish pre-holiday evening. With overall usage levels down by eight percent on the Thursday leading into the July 4 holiday weekend, most of primetime's originals were down, including drops for "Wayward Pines," "Aquarius," "Under the Dome," "Mistresses" and "Astronaut Wives Club." "Hannibal" and "Rookie Blue" were among the few shows to stay flat week-to-week, though that was mostly a factor of how low both returning dramas had been in the previous week. Let's get to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 1.3 rating for Thursday night, easily ruling in the key demographic. Fox was second with a 0.8 key demo rating, followed closely by the 0.7 key demo rating for ABC. NBC's 0.5 key demo rating and the 0.2 key demo rating for The CW trailed. »

NBC’s Hannibal this week drew 1.3 million total viewers and a 0.4 rating, dipping to a new audience low yet one of only three Thursday programs to not drop in the demo on the pre-holiday evening.

Downey is producing this live-action version of Pinocchio and will also star as the living puppet's woodcarver Geppetto.
Several live-action versions of classic animated movies are currently in the works.
Although Anderson has only been hired to pen a draft for the script, there’s a possibility that he could direct the movie as well. The director has written few movies without also helming the projects.
Downey is onboard to play Geppetto in the tale about a wooden puppet who wants to become a human boy. He’s been developing the project for some time, but recently revived interest, given Disney’s surge of live-action retellings of animated classics and fairy tales.
Disney has already struck box office gold with “Alice in Wonderland,” whose sequel “Alice Through the Looking Glass” is slated for 2016; “Maleficent”; and “Cinderella. »

Songs On Screen: Tributes by writers to their favorite musical moments from TV and film. Check out all the entries in the series here. I remember the day my mother and sister discovered that I had not yet seen the movie, Beaches. Back in 2001, I was 13-years-old, and we were all hanging out in the kitchen as Jewish families do, noshing on chips, talking about nothing important, when all of a sudden, they audibly gasped, and hands swung to their chests, devastated at the news. “Where do you think the song, ‘The Wind Beneath My Wings,’ comes from?” my older sister, Jessica, asked. “I don’t know,” I said, getting defensive. “It’s just another love song, right? I like ‘The Rose’ better anyway.” “No, no. I mean, yes, that’s great, too. But you need to see Beaches,” Jessica shook her head. I was a freshman in high school »

In the new, 4th episode official description: "Catherine and Vincent are going to take their relationship to a couples counselor when Cat dives into her work and suspects a wealthy transplant recipient of being involved with the mysterious experiments on innocent people in the city."

The same-night ratings bar for summer series continues to lower, with CBS’ “Under the Dome” returning considerably softer than last year — yet was still the top-rated among the evening’s six dramas on the major networks. ABC’s “Rookie Blue” also was much lower as it returned, while Fox’s “Boom!” didn’t make a lot of noise in its bow.
The sheer number of original dramas across the television landscape has mushroomed in just the two years since the premiere of “Under the Dome,” which was one of only two scripted Big Four programs on the June 2013 night it bowed — unlike last night when all four of the major networks were airing scripted originals. The NBA Draft also may have stolen away some night viewers from the original series on the broadcast networks last night.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, CBS won Thursday in key demos behind »

CBS’ Under the Dome opened Season 3 on Thursday night with 6.3 million total viewers and a 1.3 demo rating (per finals), down 34 and 38 percent from its previous premiere (which led out of a Big Bang rerun on a Monday), as well as down from its sophomore finale (7.5 mil/1.8, airing after a fresh Scorpion).
TVLine readers gave the two-hour opener an average grade of “B-.”

Remember all those people who were clamoring for the Academy to go back to the good ol’ days? When there were just five Best Picture nominees? Yeah, that’s not happening.* *Is "Toldja" trademarked? Is that appropriate here? The Academy’s Board of Governors met last night and a number of items were on the table. Many of the decisions voted on during the meeting were made public in a press release earlier today. In particular, there are new rules regarding producer credits for Best Picture nominees that involve PGA eligibility (a huge boost for the Producer’s Guild, by the way). The Visual Effects category will now have 20 shortlisted contenders in the first round. Even the Animated and Live Action Short Film contenders have some new qualifications to deal with.

Don’t you even dare call it a “kid’s movie.”
Animation has been around for a while now, starting with silent experiments such as Gertie the Dinosaur, followed by the more traditional Disney fare such as Snow White or Cinderella, and becoming more modern with another round of Disney hits like The Lion King or Beauty and the Beast but also with a touch of the outside thanks to Japanese imports like My Neighbor Totoro or Spirited Away.
But time and time again, the medium is relegated to kids duty. Like being sent to the smaller table at Thanksgiving dinner.
Brad Bird, director of The Iron Giant and The Incredibles, said it best when he referred to animation as a medium rather than a genre. Let’s define genre real quickly: “a class or category of artistic endeavor having a particular form.”
So that doesn’t confine animation; instead, »

As well as their princesses, cuddly sidekicks and defanged versions of darker stories, Disney animated films are known for their iconic and memorable villains. Antagonists such as the Evil Queen from Snow White And The Seven Dwarves have even passed into popular culture as universal symbols of evil. Such is the impact of their villains that any Disney-loving child over the last eighty years has grown up being afraid of old people and fruit. Nice going there, Walt!
Despite this, though, in many a Disney film, it is hard to stop yourself from rooting for the villain. Of course, there are the truly despicable ones like The Hunchback Of Notre Dame’s Judge Frollo, Gaston from The Beauty And The Beast and the man who shot Bambi’s mother but a lot of the time the villain is such an enjoyable character – or perhaps the hero is such a »

Composer James Horner, who worked with James Cameron on Aliens, Titanic and Avatar, with Ron Howard on Apollo 13 and A Beautiful Mind and who was also nominated for Oscars for his scores for Field of Dreams, Braveheart and House of Sand and Fog, has died at the age of 61. The plane he was piloting alone went down near Santa Barbara, California on Monday morning. Alan Menken, the award-winning composer (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid), says, "I count James Horner among the very best film composers of our generation. His work is stirring, emotionally powerful and broadly evocative." We're collecting more tributes and remembrances. » - David Hudson »
