Wahlberg. MacFarlane. Semen. It's The Ted 2 Trailer.

9 hours ago | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Let's be honest: You already know everything you need to know to know if you're part of the audience for Seth MacFarlane's Ted 2. The first Ted was something of a surprise hit, performing at a level Way above what anyone initially expected. but still Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane's sense of humor is very much a divider amongst crowds with his work leaving very few people the option of taking the middle ground in the court of opinion. Me? I thought the first one was pretty damn funny. So all this trailer for Ted 2 is really going to do is demonstrate whether or not they've screwed things up with the second go around for the people who enjoyed the first ... it's certainly...

The Most and Least Watched Post-Super Bowl TV Shows: ‘Alias,’ ‘Friends,’ ‘Survivor,’ ‘Glee’

13 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Season in and season out, the Super Bowl is the most-watched broadcast across all of television for the calendar year. So when the New England Patriots or the Seattle Seahawks raise the Lombardi Trophy this weekend, NBC Sports will be celebrating right alongside the winning 53-man roster. Immediately after that, it will be “The Blacklist’s” turn to pop some champagne while dreaming of ostentatious Nielsen numbers.

The critically acclaimed James Spader drama returns on Sunday night in the highly coveted post-Super Bowl timeslot. The result is guaranteed to hand “The Blacklist” its most-watched episode ever — likely by a landslide »

First Official Trailer For ‘Ted 2′

29 January 2015 12:01 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Seth Macfarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West, may have underperformed in the eyes of audiences and critics. However, the hilariously opinionated and outspoken star still struck gold with his 2012 smash hit comedy behemoth, Ted. After Universal Studios received over ten times the budget of their R rated production in ticket sales, it came as little surprise to learn that Ted 2 was on the horizon.

Not only did the original film manage to make Mark Wahlberg an A-list, household name, but it also effectively demonstrated that Macfarlane’s crude comedy style can translate to the big screen with ease. With Family Guy, American Dad and… *ahem* The Cleveland Show , all proving that their is indeed a huge market for this particular brand of humour, it seems strange that it has taken this long for Macfarlane to make the jump to the big screen.

With that in mind, »

Ted Goes to Court in First Trailer for Ted 2

29 January 2015 10:58 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Universal has released the first trailer for Ted 2, the sequel to the highest-grossing original R-rated comedy of all time. Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane returns as co-writer, director, and mo-cap star of the film as Ted the bear, and Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, Morgan Freeman, and more join him in live action.

Looks like Ted is heading to court this time around to prove that he's actually human, and like the first film as a whole, this trailer is pretty hit-or-miss for me. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Production underway on Seth MacFarlane’s Blunt Talk starring Patrick Stewart

29 January 2015 3:08 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Starz has announced that production is underway on Blunt Talk, a new half-hour scripted comedy series which is executive produced by Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, Ted) and stars Patrick Stewart as a British newsman trying to make his mark in the States. Here’s the first official image, followed by the official synopsis…

Set in Los Angeles, the story follows Walter Blunt, a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news and the fallout from his well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air. Through the platform of his nightly interview show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think and behave. Besieged by network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives and children of all ages, Blunt’s only support is the alcoholic manservant he transplanted from the U.K. to join him in Los Angeles. »

Weekly Ratings: Fox Back on Top in Demo; CBS Dominates in Total Viewers

28 January 2015 6:03 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With a growing “Empire” and still-stout numbers from “American Idol,” Fox is off to a better-than-expected start in the new year.

While CBS dominated the total-viewer derby last week in ridiculous fashion, Fox found itself in unfamiliar ratings territory — first place — in primetime’s key young-adult demo. “Empire” and “Idol” were the top draws of the week in adults 18-49 as the net beat its ABC-cbs-nbc competition combined on Wednesday.

Fox has now won two of the three weeks in 18-49 since “Empire” and “Idol” bowed — its first outright victories during an in-season frame without major sports help since April 2013.

“Empire” averaged a 4.4 rating/13 share in adults 18-49 and 11.07 million viewers overall last week, rising 10% week-to-week (from 4.0) and 16% above its debut (3.8), according to Nielsen. In doing so, it became the first hit broadcast series to grow two straight weeks in the demo following its series premiere since ABC’s “Moon Over Miami »

27 January 2015 11:46 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After a first look photo emerged last year, we've been waiting to get a glimpse of the teaser trailer for Ted 2, the follow-up to the 2012 comedy from "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane. The good news is that the trailer will arrive by way of the sequel's official website www.LegalizeTed.com on Thursday.

And now there's a teaser poster to hype the film's release this summer, and it's very familiar to a teaser poster released for the first film. No points for the recycled joke, Universal. Look!

New Teaser Poster For Seth MacFarlane’s Ted 2 Is As Cheeky As You’d Expect

27 January 2015 10:28 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Come summer, there are plenty of blockbusters that will be vying for your hard-earned money and time, and 2015 is certainly shaping up to be one of the busiest seasons in recent memory. But situated among the bombastic action and high-profile reboots is Seth MacFarlane’s comedy sequel Ted 2, which recently debuted a new teaser poster ahead of the very first trailer on Thursday.

As one would expect, the image is about as on the nose as they come, hinting at the second coming of everyone’s favourite foul-talking stuffed animal. For the follow-up, MacFarlane’s brash bear will reunite with Mark Wahlberg’s John Bennett (thunder buddies for life, remember) for another bout of belly-tickling mayhem. Much like his multi-tasking on Family Guy and American Dad, MacFarlane will write and produce the raunchy sequel, which has a particular brand of expectation resting on its fuzzy shoulders.

Ratings: NBC’s Miss Universe Pageant Tops Sunday in Demos

26 January 2015 9:25 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A shift to Sunday helped NBC’s annual “Miss Universe Pageant” produced big ratings gains this year, as the event stood as the night’s top broadcast in key demos with some of its best numbers in years. Also of note on the final Sunday of the month were modest exits for ABC’s “Galavant” and “Resurrection.”

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, NBC won Sunday among the broadcasters thanks to the live, three-hour “Miss Universe Pageant” from Miami (2.0/6 in 18-49, 7.6 million viewers overall), which was the night’s No. 1 entertainment program in 18-49 as well as both persons 12-34 (1.5/6) and adults 25-54 (2.3/6).  It grew with each half-hour, peaking with a 2.4 demo rating and 8.8 million total viewers from 10:30 to 11.

Meet TV’s Comedy and Drama Champ: Here’s the Ratings Ruler Without Reality, Sports and Specials

26 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Who needs football? Well, NBC for starters — and also Fox and CBS, albeit to somewhat lesser degrees.

TheWrap re-ran network TV ratings to include primetime scripted series only — so, omitting sports, specials and reality series — to see who owns the written word on the small screen. As it turns out, the pared-down way of looking at most current (where available) Nielsen numbers jumps ABC from third to first place among the Big 4 networks.

Both originals and repeats were included in this report, which accounted for data from the 2014-2015 season shows through Sunday, Jan. 18, 2015.
