The group journeys to the supposed Safe Haven Ranch seeking shelter from the owners, »

Mo'Nique and 8 More Actors Who Didn't Get the Oscar Win Bump

21 February 2015 7:30 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Win an Oscar and the offers start pouring in, every studio chomping at the bit to be able to include "and featuring Academy Award winner so-and-so" in its next trailer. Right?! Er, yes and no. As Mo'Nique so deftly reminded people this week when discussing the 75th anniversary of Hattie McDaniel's history-making Oscar winn with The Hollywood Reporter, scoring a little gold naked man of one's own does not guarantee that it's going to be you, Meryl Streep and Daniel Day-Lewis up for every plum role (especially if that role is Lincoln). Sure, you'll work. But then everyone expects greatness, every time—an unattainable standard, even for Meryl. To be fair, »

Crossing Lines: Season Three Renewal for TV Series

20 February 2015 6:18 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

As you may recall, NBC aired the first season of Crossing Lines a couple summers ago. It didn't perform well enough in the ratings and the network opted not to pick up the second season. Crossing Lines has been a success in the international market however and Netflix recently started streaming season two for Us audiences.

Deadline now reports that a third season of 12 episodes has been ordered with Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost, Revolution) and Goran Visnjic (ER) joining the cast. They'll join Donald Sutherland as leads, replacing William Fichtner.

The X-Files' Frank Spotnitz is joining the show as an executive producer alongside Tandem's Rola Bauer. Crossing Lines creator and executive producer Ed Bernero departed after Season two to be close to his family in California.

The series shoots in Europe and filming will be getting underway next week in Prague. »

Watch: Inside the Lifelike Visual Effects of ‘The Night Shift’

20 February 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Night Shift” returns for its second season on Feb. 23, and Variety has an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating the medical drama’s visceral visual effects and makeup.

The footage reveals techniques from three-time Emmy-winning makeup department head Cheri Montasanto, showing a cast that is quick to react to gory injuries that are so intricately designed that the cast and crew sometimes forget they’re not real.

“It makes everything much easier when you’re looking at stuff that looks real,” says Eoin Macken, who plays doctor T.C. Callahan.

Actress Jeananne Goossen, who plays Krista, describes having her arms fully submerged in someone’s torso for an episode where a pregnant victim of a car crash has a head wound and needs a C-section. She reveals that there are actors puppeteering underneath the procedure tables, so it gives the illusion that the heart and lungs are moving. »

Weekly Ratings: ‘SNL’ Special Rallies NBC; Syndicated Shows Sweep Up

19 February 2015 5:34 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

February is known as a sweeps month of major events, with the Super Bowl, Grammys and Oscars annually making life difficult for the competition on their respective Sundays. This year, NBC filled out the month’s other Sunday very nicely, as its “Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special” delivered near-Grammy numbers itself and almost single-handedly carried the network to a weekly victory in young adults.

The Peacock was running fourth in the 18-49 demo until Sunday night’s special but ended up winning with a 2.1 rating, followed by ABC (1.7), CBS and Fox (both 1.5) Univision and TNT (both 1.0), according to Nielsen estimates for the Feb. 9-15 frame. CBS rolled in total viewers, this time by about 1.5 million over runner-up NBC (9.3 million vs. 7.8 million).

The first full week of the February sweep, meanwhile, saw some strong performances in syndication (see below), with “Wendy Williams” and “Dish Nation” setting series highs and several entertainment magazines hit season bests. »

StreamFix: 5 Weird Movies Starring Oscar Nominees on Netflix Now

18 February 2015 4:47 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Here are five weird choices streaming on Netflix to get you caught up on some of the 2014 nominees. "Chalet Girl" with Felicity Jones Felicity Jones would have more of a chance at an Oscar if she just called herself "the other Carey Mulligan" and dealt with it. Anyway, remember "Chalet Girl"? It was about Felicity Jones and Ed Westwick enjoying wonderful times on the slopes. Let us consult The New York Times' review for some insight into this cinematic journey: "'Chalet Girl' may not be particularly creative or genre busting or even a great example of a romantic comedy. But its premise might make you smile." I know I always go to the movies for »

'Saturday Night Live' 40th Anniversary Video Highlights

16 February 2015 12:39 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

NBC aired the three and a half hour 40th Anniversary special for their beloved late night sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live last night, and it was surely an affair to remember, with memorable appearances by comedians who got their start on the show, such as Eddie Murphy, Bill Murray, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake kicked off the show with a memorable cold open, which is just one of many video highlights you can watch below, in case you missed the special or just want to relive it all over again.

TNT Gives The Librarians Another Season

14 February 2015 7:48 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

TNT’s The Librarians shot out of the gates, and how could it not, and the network has finally announced a renewal.

Considering the numbers, this isn’t exactly a surprise. According to their own statement, it was the #2 basic cable show of the year, so bringing it back probably isn’t anything that fans were worried about… except that it kept not happening.

It isn’t actually a long time since the first season ended, but by today’s standards, it has been a bit of an odd wait. The delay is perhaps a hint at some behind-the-scenes uncertainty over contracts and schedules, especially in the case of Noah Wyle, who both is and isn’t a regular feature of the show, and who has other shows to do.

At any rate, you can rest easy. And, look for your chance to catch the show, if you haven’t already, »

Costume Designers Increasingly Enter the Retail Line of Fire

12 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

While costume designers have always been able to influence fashion, their ability to leverage their screen-based success into retail reality in such large numbers has accelerated in the past two decades.

Since the 1990s, when costume designer Patricia Field put the sex in smallscreen style, courtesy of HBO’s “Sex and the City,” the styles worn in TV and films, from “Gossip Girl” to “Mad Men” to “The Great Gatsby,” “The Hunger Games” and “The Good Wife” have found homes in retail outlets. Not even first lady Michelle Obama is immune. She earned raves for the Michael Kors suit she wore to her husband’s State of the Union address on Jan. 20 — the same one worn by Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) in season five of “The Good Wife.”

What’s behind the surge in primetime fever? “The answer is, without a doubt, social media,” says Mandi Line, costume designer on “Pretty Little Liars, »
