Death Watch 2011: Fall TV Survival Status Thanksgiving Weekend Edition

25 November 2011 11:50 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Who will be the Last Man Standing to get Revenge for all those critics who, Once Upon a Time, needed a lesson or two on How to Be A Gentleman? Ooh, we could play this all day! Unfortunately, we’re running out of titles to riff on (if only NBC named it Rock Bottom with the Brian Williams instead of Rock Center) and frankly, the broadcast networks are thisclose to delivering their final verdicts on their fall fare. Midseason is just around the corner, you see, when there will be a whole lot of new shows to keep (or dump »

Death Watch 2011: Fall TV Survival Status Week 7

2 November 2011 11:33 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Updated: We skipped last week to focus on the fate of returning shows, but now we’re back to run down the odds of all the new series surviving past the holidays.

What has changed in the last two weeks? Once upon a time, two networks premiered two shows about fairy tales. One of the dramas premiered on Sunday, debuted to really big numbers and managed to keep all its new friends around for week 2. The other show bowed in a haunted swamp called Friday where it still managed to find some followers.

Here are the latest, season-to-date averages including »

Death Watch 2011: Fall TV Survival Status Week 5

20 October 2011 12:35 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Updated: So far, so predictable: All the shows that have been pink-slipped were pretty much expected. (Across the nation, scores of TV critics are crowing “we told you so!”) Now comes the really tough decisions: Some new (and old) shows are still posting ratings south of a 2.0 rating (here’s looking at you, Prime Suspect), but at what point does a network start to hit bone when it makes so many painful cuts?

Let’s look at the latest, season-to-date averages in adults 18-49, the demographic of most concern to advertisers. (Note: We’ve included the averages for the shows »

Death watch 2011: Fall TV survival status week 4

12 October 2011 6:50 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Updated: Another week of fall TV data, and the rankings are definitely starting to shift: Some lucky shows have climbed because DVR data has been added to the mix. But not everybody benefited from delayed viewership. (Sorry, Up All Night and Terra Nova.) Here is how the new shows are faring among the ever-crucial adults 18-49 rating and our thoughts on which ones will (or will not) survive the winter:

2 Broke Girls (CBS): 5.7 rating.

Full season pickup.

New Girl (Fox): 5.0

Status: Fox was the first network to pick up a new show for a full season. (Traditionally, the »

Death watch 2011: Fall TV survival status report

3 October 2011 6:30 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Sure, it’s only been two weeks. But sometimes, that’s all it takes for a new show to either earn a full-season order (congrats, Fox’s New Girl) or get the ax (time to start packing, Playboy Club?). Here’s how the new shows are faring so far among the ever-crucial adults 18-49 rating and our thoughts about which will still be alive come spring:

2 Broke Girls (CBS): 5.9 rating

Status: If this comedy were on other networks, it would have already earned a pickup. CBS tends to be conservative about giving early endorsements (and when it comes to its Monday night block, »

Fright Rags Launches Stephen King Collection T-Shirt Line

20 January 2011 2:25 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

If there are any horror authors out there who deserve their own t-shirt lines, we'd say Stephen King would be at or near the top of the list, and obviously Fright Rags agrees as they've just launched the "King Collection" line of tees.

With artwork from Pet Sematary, Night Shift, The Dark Half, and Skeleton Crew, the King Collection became available this week from the Fright Rags website. Per Ben at Fright Rags, this new line will pay homage to the cover art that inspired me and countless others growing up, and we have worked closely with the original artists to recreate their vision in every detail.

Wonder how the collection came about? Ben's blog post "Judging a Book by Its Cover", which he posted last May, explains. Here's an excerpt, and below that you'll find a peek at the t-shirts themselves:

'Seconds Apart' from After Dark Films Explores Creepy Twins

3 January 2011 1:21 AM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

by Seth Metoyer

Being a twin myself, I've always been intrigued by films dealing with the doppelganger subject matter, especially ones that delve into the strange and unusual aspects of the monozygotic variety. The topic of twins has been written about and filmed within the horror genre quite a bit over the years, including such notable films as The Dark Half and Dead Ringers. The idea of twins doesn't necessarily have to examine the intricacies of identical siblings (House of Wax remake), for instance, it can also quite be quite effective when the movie simply depicts two people dressed in similar clothing as seen in The Shining. Creepy effect has been obtained!

'Seconds Apart' is a new film that will release in January from After Dark Films as one of eight new movies to be released under their "After Dark Originals" branch. This movie will also plunge into »
