'Simple' reaps demo win for Fox

4 December 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The Paris Hilton gossip buzz saw of the past two weeks paid off for Fox on Tuesday with solid opening-night numbers for the heiress' TV debut in the comedy-reality vehicle The Simple Life, which drove the network to the nightly win in the adults 18-49 demographic. NBC's domestic comedy The Tracy Morgan Show got off to an OK start with back-to-back episodes in the 8-9 p.m. hour. The same was true for the 10 p.m. debut of ABC's midseason FBI drama Line of Fire, according to Nielsen Media Research. Fox popped at 8:30 p.m. with Simple Life (13 million viewers, 5.9 rating/16 share in adults 18-49). The show that sends Hilton and fellow rich kid Nicole Richie to work on an Arkansas farm for a month soared from its lead-in, a That '70s Show rerun (7.3 million, 3.2/9), and beat NBC's 10 p.m. anchor "Law & Order: SVU" (13.7 million, 5.1/14) for the highest demo score of the night. Simple Life also flexed muscle with teens (7.7/23) and adults 18-34 (5.8/17). »

Kutcher Dropped Because of Poor Acting?

25 November 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Ashton Kutcher was reportedly dropped from Cameron Crowe's new movie because the director was dissatisfied with his acting skills. The hunky That 70's Show star explained earlier this month he had been forced to leave the cast of Elizabethtown when its filming schedule changed, and clashed with his TV commitments. However, according to a source quoted on the Pagesix website, Crowe was actually dissatisfied with Kutcher's rehearsals - and even suggested the 25-year- old consider taking acting lessons. The source claims, "Cameron was unhappy with his read-throughs. Ashton did several and each one was worse and worse. Cameron even postponed production because he thought the readings would get better but they didn't. At one point, Cameron suggested that Ashton take acting lessons. Soon after that, they both decided it would be best if Ashton was not in the movie." But Crowe's representative claimed ignorance of the causes behind Kutcher's departure, saying, "I am not aware of any of this. Schedules changed but I don't know what transpired between (them)." Kutcher was also recently dropped from consideration for an upcoming Steven Soderbergh project because the Oscar-winning director was unsure whether he "was up to par professionally" due to his public profile, fueled by his relationship with actress Demi Moore. »

'O.C.' mapping out Wed. space

31 October 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Fox's summer sleeper The O.C. hung tough in its return to primetime Wednesday even as it faced off against ABC's reality hotshot The Bachelor. That '70s Show also strutted its stuff in its sixth-season debut, winning the 8 p.m. slot for Fox, according to Nielsen Media Research, but Fox's new Norm Macdonald sitcom, A Minute With Stan Hooper, struggled to hold onto its '70s lead-in. Despite the activity at ABC and Fox, NBC took the night overall in total viewers (12.7 million viewers) and adults 18-49 (4.5 rating/12 share) thanks to respectable showings from Ed and The West Wing and a big pop at 10 p.m. as usual for Law & Order. That '70s Show opened the night for Fox with an average of 9.9 million viewers and a 5.0/14 in 18-49. The premiere of Stan Hooper followed at 8:30 p.m. with 7.1 million viewers and a 3.6/10 in 18-49. »

The Vine: 'Elizabethtown' shoot falls back

24 October 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The start date of Cameron Crowe's Elizabethtown is in flux. Because the director wants to shoot the ensemble comedy during a specific time of year, its original January start date has been pushed to an unspecified spring start, sources said. Because of the date change, the availability of Ashton Kutcher, who is to topline the movie with Kirsten Dunst, is now up in the air. Kutcher's reps confirmed that the actor has such television commitments as Fox's That '70s Show and MTV's Punk'd that could affect his role in Elizabethtown. However, they also said they are working on the situation to see if his schedule can accommodate the change in the film's shooting schedule. Sources also indicated that Crowe is eyeballing Oregon and Kentucky as possible locations for the Paramount Pictures-DreamWorks co-production. »

Demi the Diva Frightens Ashton's Workmates

2 October 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood siren Demi Moore is reportedly making her presence felt on the set of lover Ashton Kutcher's television program That '70S Show - and workers are starting to tire of her watchful eye. The Striptease beauty, 40, has moved her family from their Idaho home to Los Angeles so she can be near the Just Married hunk and is now a constant fixture at his work as well. One disgruntled crewmember tells Britain's Heat magazine, "Demi has this overwhelming presence. She's been on the set for almost every minute that Ashton is filming. The actresses and female crew members are getting self-conscious and are afraid that one false move and Demi will think they're after her man. It's causing a lot of tension. It's hard to be yourself when glaring eyes are watching every move you make. Demi's demanding behavior is highly distracting." »

30 September 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

2 September 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

That '70s Show star Topher Grace is ready for another groovy season on the durable Fox comedy series. The actor is finalizing a new deal with '70s producer Carsey-Werner-Mandabach that will keep him on the series set in the Me Decade through the 2004-05 season. Grace already was under contract for the upcoming 2003-04 season. The new pact for the 2004-05 season is said to bump his per-episode salary to the same range of $250,000-$300,000 that co-star Ashton Kutcher recently secured (HR 7/7). That puts the total value of Grace's one-season, 25-episode deal in the $6 million-$8 million bracket. »

Kutcher Backs Away from 'Dude' Sequel

22 August 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie hunk Ashton Kutcher had fans in stitches in Dude, Where's My Car? - but there's no way he'll consider returning for a sequel unless it's seriously star-studded. The Hollywood heart-throb, currently dating resurrected superstar Demi Moore, made his name in sitcom That 70's Show, and then starred opposite Seann William Scott for the wacky comedy. But though reports had claimed a sequel entitled Seriously Dude, Where's My Car? was in the pipeline, Kutcher's not keen to take it to the screen. He says, "Well, if Seann's in it, I'd do it. And Brad Pitt. And Meryl Streep, Robert De Niro and Tom Cruise - and then only if it's directed by Martin Scorsese and Cameron Crowe. Actually, it's not likely at the moment." »

14 August 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Fox was hot on Wednesday with Paradise Hotel but CBS was hotter with Big Brother 4. Fox won the night in the adults 18-49 demographic (3.3 rating/11 share) thanks to 9 p.m. reality series Paradise (6.8 million viewers and 3.5/11 in adults 18-49) and 8-9 p.m. repeats of That '70s Show (6.3 million, 3.2/12) and The Simpsons (6 million, 3.0/10). CBS led the primetime pack in total viewers (9.2 million) and ranked No. 2 in the demo (3.0/10) with a steady performance throughout the night from 60 Minutes II (9 million, 2.4/9), Big Brother 4 (9.8 million, 3.9/12) and 48 Hours Investigates (8.7 million, 2.8/9). NBC got off to a slow start at 8 p.m. with Race to the Altar (4.7 million, 1.8/7) and the 9 p.m. West Wing rerun (5.2 million, 1.7/5) but things perked up with the 10 p.m. rerun of Law & Order (8.7 million, 3.1/9). ABC's highlight of the night was the spunk showed by the 8:30 p.m. repeat of George Lopez (7.5 million, 3.0/11) which has showed signs of blossoming into a significant player for ABC in its extensive rerun exposure this summer. ABC's lowlights were the second episode of The Real Roseanne Show (4.2 million, 1.8/5) and 10 p.m. reality series The Family (4 million, 1.8/6), which kept the network in last place for the night (5.1 million, 2.1/7). »

Ashton Kutcher's love life is about to get even more interesting -- at least for the character he plays on the Fox hit That '70s Show.

The hit comedy from Carsey-Werner-Mandabach is returning for a sixth season in the fall.

Kutcher still truckin' with ' '70s Show'

7 July 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

His feature career is just starting to take off, but Ashton Kutcher isn't giving up his day job on the Fox sitcom That '70s Show anytime soon. The actor has struck a new deal with '70s Show producer Carsey-Werner-Mandabach that will keep him on the comedy set in the Me Decade through the 2004-05 season. Kutcher already was under contract for the upcoming 2003-04 season. The new pact for the '04-'05 season is said to bump Kutcher's per-episode salary to the $250,000-$300,000 range, which puts the total value of the one-season, 25-episode deal in the $6 million-$8 million range. Kutcher has played the gullible Michael Kelso on the durable Fox series since it bowed in 1998. He's also creator/executive producer/star of MTV's latest reality sensation, the hidden-camera prankster series Punk'd. In recent months, Kutcher emerged as Hollywood's "It" dude, garnering headlines and paparazzi attention because of his budding romance with Demi Moore. But he's also in demand as a leading man in a range of features. Kutcher is attached to co-star opposite Bernie Mac in Columbia Pictures' The Dinner Party, loosely based on 1967's Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? He also is in talks to star in M. Night Shyamalan's next project, The Woods. Kutcher's feature credits include Texas Rangers, Just Married and Dude, Where's My Car? He's repped by Endeavor and Untitled Entertainment. »

WGA calls net indie usage slim

2 June 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

How hard have independent producers been hit by the wave of media consolidation during the past decade? Pretty hard, according to the WGA. Three days before today's scheduled vote by the FCC that is expected to result in further relaxation of media ownership restrictions, the guild filed comments with the commission highlighting the high volume of network-owned programming slated to air on the primetime schedules of the six major broadcast networks in the 2003-04 season. The WGA's survey found that for the upcoming season, only three out of 124 series on the networks' fall schedules can truly be considered independent productions. In 1992, there were 31 independently produced shows out of a total of 103, according to the guild filing. Of the three series, one of them was World Wrestling Entertainment's WWE Smackdown! two-hour wrestling block on UPN. Carsey-Werner-Mandabach, the last sizable independent company active in primetime production, accounted for the other two: the Fox sitcom That '70s Show and the WB Network sitcom Grounded for Life. In a sign of the times, the two new shows Carsey-Werner-Mandabach has in the works for the upcoming season, the NBC comedies Whoopi and The Tracy Morgan Show, are both co-productions with NBC Studios. »

CBS stomps rivals in Thursday's ratings race

11 April 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

CBS ruled the primetime roost on Thursday as NBC served up reruns of Friends, Will & Grace and ER. ABC and Fox, meanwhile, were deep in the Nielsen cellar with near record-low ratings for the night, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. CBS won the night by a wide margins with big turnouts for Survivor: Amazon (19.1 million viewers, 7.2 rating/21 share in the adults 18-49 demo), CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (26.1 million, 9.7/25) and Without a Trace (17.6 million, 6.2/16), which had no trouble beating NBC's 10 p.m. ER rerun (11.7 million, 5.3/14). NBC sandwiched originals of Scrubs and Good Morning, Miami between its tentpole reruns but all around it was a lackluster night for the peacock, which took second place (11.9 million, 5.5/15) behind CBS (20.9 million, 7.7/21). ABC's 8-10 p.m. block of Whose Line Is It Anyway? episodes (one original followed by three repeats) and 10 p.m. newsmagazine Primetime Live yielded an anemic 5.1 million viewers and 1.8/5 in 18-49 for the night. Fox was even further behind with a nightly average of 4 million viewers and 1.9/5 in the demo generated by back-to-back That '70s Show repeats and 9 p.m. newsmagazine The Pulse (3.6 million, 1.5/4). »

9 April 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

TORONTO -- U.S. TV fare leads the nominations for the Banff Rockie Awards, unveiled Tuesday. Stateside producers and broadcasters earned 18 noms in the annual competition of international TV programming, followed by their British counterparts with 15.

HBO series dominated the continuing series competition, with Oz, Six Feet Under and The Sopranos going up against another U.S. series, Warner Bros. Television's The West Wing, and the British series Spooks. New this year is U.S. programming's presence in niche categories, in which Canadian and European producers traditionally have fared best. »

Ashton Saved Co-Star's Life in Plane Terror

2 April 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood hunk Ashton Kutcher has revealed he performed life- saving CPR on That 70'S Show castmate Danny Masterson when the plane they were traveling in lost cabin pressure. The Just Married actor, along with Colin Hanks, Masterton and Wilmer Valderrama were returning from Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans when the drama took place. Ashton recalls, "We were flying at 32,000 feet and most of us were asleep when all of a sudden I started to feel light-headed. I was like, 'What the hell is going on?' Suddenly these oxygen masks dropped out the ceiling! Colin Hanks put his mask on, but then he started to hyperventilate. He'd just woken up so I think he was feeling freaked. Then he just passed out. I got Colin to calm down, got the mask on him and got him breathing again. But then I noticed that Danny was passed out too. It turned out that his oxygen mask wasn't working, so I gave him CPR and he came to. After that, I gave him my mask while I shared someone else's, taking a breath every two minutes." But brave Ashton - who was previously a lifeguard - insists he only did what anyone would do in the terrifying situation. He adds, "After you've been in a couple of those situations, you learn to stay cool." »
