Network Pilot Season In a Frenzy Thanks to Cable and Digital Dealmaking

3 February 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Not so long ago, January was literally full of drama.

Network TV development execs typically spent the December holidays reading 60-plus scripts for prospective drama series. The following month would be dedicated to debating and strategizing on the best dozen or so to order to pilot. And then, as Groundhog Day approached, they’d do it all over again with comedies.

This year, the broadcast networks were nearly done handing out all of their pilot orders before January wrapped. They have no choice: The chase for top talent and material is now so fierce that the pilot-season timetable might as well be measured in warp factors. No one can afford to dawdle: The traditional broadcast development cycle has to barrel into a marketplace already humming year-round with deal-making for cable and digital shows.

“All the networks are just trying to get out in front of each other — basically, everyone is racing, »

Here's the Real Reason Why Bill Murray Kept Living on Repeat in 'Groundhog Day'

2 February 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

What's not to love about Bill Murray as an ill-fated weatherman who is forced to relive the same day over and over in Groundhog Day? Comedy gold. If you've ever wondered the real reasons why Murray's sourpuss meteorologist was chosen to repeat the same sadistic time loop, voiceover artist Eddie Deezen has your answer. He ponders why Murray's Phil deserved such a hefty punishment and points to the second draft of the script for an explanation. Apparently it has to do with a curse that Phil's ex-girlfriend put on him. "Literally, she opens a book of magic spells and does a little ritual that causes him to get stuck in time…. There is no 'higher purpose' given, just an angry, embittered ex-girlfriend with a little book,&quot...

Why CBS Will Be No. 1 Soon: Broadcast Ratings Before Super Bowl 50

2 February 2016 2:16 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It’s Groundhog Day, so it feels appropriate that NBC is once again the No. 1 ranked network in the key 18-49 demographic. The last time NBC wasn’t on top was just after the 2013-14 TV season’s Super Bowl, which aired on Fox. Even back then, though, NBC worked back into a first-place tie within a week and reclaimed the top slot outright after two weeks, thanks to the Sochi Winter Olympics. Before that, the last time NBC wasn’t leading the season for a significant period was February through September of the 2012-13 season, when CBS got a Super Bowl boost. »

Opinion surveys got the Republican caucus winner wrong and were way off with the Democrats too. If you want predictions better turn to an overweight squirrel

Watch: 'The Late Late Show' Goes Full-On Bill Murray in 'Groundhog Day' Tribute

2 February 2016 8:06 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With over 130 appearances as the host of "The Late Late Show" on CBS under his belt, OBE honored actor and comedian James Corden has begun cementing himself into the iconography of late night talk shows. And what better way to continue that trend than by adopting American-Germanic folklore into a talk show that is most frequented by people who fell asleep watching "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert."

Groundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perception

2 February 2016 7:30 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Today is Groundhog Day, where the myth lives on that a groundhog who sees his shadow will doom us to a longer winter than we deserve. As interesting as this concept is, what really made Groundhog Day as legendary as it is, isHarold Ramis’ Groundhog Day, the film in which Bill Murray’s weatherman Phil mysteriously finds himself living the same day over and over again.

Groundhog Day in a traditional sense is a comedy, but the film actually touches upon some really dark philosophical themes, one idea being Nietzsche’s eternal recurrence, in which we’re doomed to live the same life over and over again. It’s estimated by the filmmakers that Phil lives the same day for 10 years. Arguably, no film has taken this concept as it is presented in Groundhog Day to as absurd of lengths. 

In honour of Groundhog Day, and since we’re feeling metaphysical, »

The Vampire Diaries season 7 episode 10 review: Hell Is Other People

The Vampire Diaries delivers one of the strongest episodes not just of season seven but of recent years...

This review contains spoilers.

7.10 Hell Is Other People

Well this is timely. It's groundhog day in the real world and The Vampire Diaries has finally resorted to doing its own time-loop episode. It's taken the show seven whole years to actually do it, which is laudable on its own, but somehow it also managed to take that trope and craft the strongest episode of its current season. I'd even go so as far as to say it's one of the strongest episodes the show has done in recent years.

Some of that's to do with how focused it is, showing us the world from only one perspective for all but a single scene. For a show that usually burns through plots and revelations faster than is definitely advisable for a serialised drama, »

It's Just Like Groundhog Day—Or Is It? Thanks to the Bill Murray Classic, People Have Never Stopped Saying That

2 February 2016 4:15 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

You really know a movie is a classic and has become a pop culture touchstone when it is endlessly referenced and quoted and, ultimately, ends up becoming the go-to term for a universally recognized life experience. And such is the case with the practically-perfect-in-every-way 1993 comedy Groundhog Day, starring Bill Murray as a weatherman forced to relive the same day over and over until he finally gets it right. Saying something is "like Groundhog Day"—which is today, Feb. 2, cheers!—has become a much-used phrase, used to describe any repetitive experience, whether it bears any resemblance to the goings-on of the film or not. Because people surely don't mean actual Groundhog Day, »

Whether or not Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, Fox executives must retreat to the nearest conference room, blast audio of Mary Murphy’s “Hot Tamale Train” battle cry on repeat loop, and not emerge until they’ve sent their blueprint for Season 13 through a cross-cut shredder.

Next on The Vampire Diaries: Damon's Hell on Earth and Stefan's Future Hunter

29 January 2016 6:00 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Is everyone on The Vampire Diaries dead?! Well, technically half of them are already, since half of the show's major characters are vampires. But you're probably wondering Wtf is happening after the brutal ending to the show's first Friday episode, "Hell Is Other People," in which Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) finally escaped his personal hell after being trapped in the Phoenix Stone for three months—and then proceeded to kill all of his friends. Oops! You can't really blame him, since he thought it was another reset of the horrible Groundhog Day-esque experience he had while reliving the worst day of his life repeatedly until he was reduced to the most raw, vulnerable state he's »

25 movie trailers that gave away way too much

From Terminator films and Jurassic World through to trailers with the ending in them...

One of the trailers for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is the latest to ignite grumbles about just how much is given away in promos for movies.

This list looks at 25 films where the trailer has given away more than it really should in its promos - and it goes without saying that spoilers lie ahead for each of the movies. Don't read or click on individual entries of films you've not seen if you don't want to be spoiler sullied!

25. Jurassic World

Director Colin Trevorrow was amongst those who expressed disappointment at this one particular promo for Jurassic World. In it, we see Chris Pratt riding on his motorbike, alongside velcoraptors that surprisingly don't appear to be eating him. Presented out of context, the scene just looked a little daft. But »

Celebrate Groundhog Day by Watching 'Groundhog Day' In a Theater For 24 Hours Straight

21 January 2016 7:15 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Remember when it was cool to marathon a movie franchise in the theater? Maybe you've endured a lengthy series of screenings of the Lord of the Rings or Marvel cinematic universe or Star Wars movies, back to back leading up to a new installment. Well, those and also events like the annual 24-hour Butt-Numb-a-Thon in Austin (and heck, let's include that three-day Shia Labeouf stunt in New York) are easy peezy compared to the new challenge: all day and all night marathons of the same movie over and over and over.  Forget watching seven or 11 different titles in succession. Just you try to watch Groundhog Day on repeat for 24 hours. That's 12 showings of the classic time loop comedy, in which Bill Murray plays a weatherman repeating the same day over and over. The...

"DC's Legends" Crossover & Time Travel Talk

11 January 2016 7:04 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"DC's Legends of Tomorrow" executive producer Phil Klemmer has confirmed that alternate versions of Barry Allen and Oliver Queen are locked to appear on the time-traveling anthology series.

Speaking with EW at the Television Critics Association's press tour on Sunday, executive producer Greg Berlanti was asked about the show potentially sporting crossover with its predecessors "Arrow" and "The Flash". He says:

"It's intermittent throughout. Because they're a band of time traveling rogues, it's harder for Arrow and Flash to be connected story wise to it throughout the season. That being said, if you know the histories of Arrow and Flash, it should be extra fun in its own way as we delve deeper and deeper into the characters lives."

Klemmer then said that there is a "100 percent chance that older and/or younger versions of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) will appear." They would join the »
