Titled "Ghosted," the paranormal-themed project — which has received a pilot order — follows a skeptic (Robinson) and a true believer (Scott), who are hired by the Underground Investigative Service to look into the rampant “unexplained” activity in Los Angeles — all while uncovering a larger mystery that could threaten the existence of the human race.

TV Ratings Report: Big Brother Soars

29 August 2016 11:59 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Big Brother continued to pick up steam for CBS. 

CBS: Big Brother's (6.8 million/2.0 rating) juror battle sent the ratings higher. BrainDead (2.3 million/0.3 rating) remained pretty dead out of an encore of Madam Secretary (3.3 million/0.5 rating).

NBC: NFL Preseason Football (5.6 million/1.7 rating) continued to pull in a crowd for NBC.

ABC: Celebrity Family Feud (5.7 million/1.0 rating), The $100,000 Pyramid (5.6 million/1.0 rating) and Match Game (4.8 million/0.9 rating) were on par with one week earlier. 

Fox: Encores of The Simpsons (2.6 million/1.1 rating), Brooklyn Nine-Nine (1.7 million/0.8 rating), Family Guy (2 million/0.8 rating) and Last Man On Earth (1.5 million/0.6 rating) were inflated.

Jon Favreau to direct series premiere of Seth MacFarlane’s sci-fi comedy series

27 August 2016 5:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Iron Man and The Jungle Book director Jon Favreau is set to direct the first episode of Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s as-yet-untitled live-action sci-fi comedy-drama for Fox, as well as serving as executive producer on the series.

The show, which has been ordered straight to series, will take place in the 24th century and “chronicles the exploits of the Orville, a ‘not-so-top-of-the-line’ ship in Earth’s interstellar Fleet.” MacFarlane is portraying Ed, the Captain of the Orville, and he will be joined in the cast by Adrianne Palicki and Scott Grimes.

Favreau is no stranger to the small screen, having directed episodes of Revolution, The Office and About a Boy. He also recently executive produced the fantasy series The Shannara Chronicles, which has been renewed for a second season.

Untitled Seth MacFarlane TV Show Gains Jon Favreau As Director

25 August 2016 8:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It bodes well for your television project if it attracts the filmmaker that kickstarted the Marvel Cinematic Universe to direct the pilot episode – and that’s exactly the kind of boost currently being enjoyed by Seth MacFarlane and Fox, as Iron Man director Jon Favreau signs on to shepherd MacFarlane’s new sci-fi series onto the air. It does not yet have a title, but the show will be the first live-action dramedy that the Family Guy creator has delivered for the network.

There are no specific plot details available, beyond the fact that it will apparently be set 300 years in the future, aboard an exploratory ship named Orville. Seth MacFarlane will star in the show as the ship’s captain, Ed. He will be joined by Adrianne Palicki as his ex-wife and First Officer, Scott Grimes as his best friend and pilot, and Peter Macon and J. Lee in supporting roles. »

The Jungle Book and Iron Man director Jon Favreau is lined up to direct the very first episode of Family Guy‘s Seth MacFarlane’s untitled TV show over at Fox.

The show was originally announced back in May and is set three centuries in the future following the crew of the motley exploratory ship Orville as they explore the challenges of space and co-habituating with their colleagues.

The Hollywood Reporter adds that Favreau will then stay on the show in an executive producer capacity after helming the pilot episode.

Shooting on the new Fox sci-fi show kicks off in the new year.

Emmys 2016: ‘Steven Universe’ and ‘Bob’s Burgers’ Show Off Animation’s Softer Side

24 August 2016 12:46 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

From opening theme to closing credits, “The Answer” is eleven minutes—but as with most episodes of “Steven Universe,” its emotional reach seems infinite. Even the title card is immaculate, clothes on the line and leaves in the trees rustling under a midnight moon. In the Emmy-nominated Short Form Animated Series, the most ravishing approach to the art form currently on television, each frame, ant-like, carries many times its own weight, and together the images foster a kind of communal spirit. Down to the frogs and fireflies in an untouched forest, or the fusion of two characters into one, in “The Answer” “Steven Universe” reaffirms its faith in the additive power of cooperation, a children’s series with potent insights for adults.

Created by “Adventure Time” veteran Rebecca Sugar, “Steven Universe” (Cartoon Network), which began its fourth season earlier this month, features a complex feminist mythos: The fantastical Crystal Gems, »

Mike Gold: Holy Geriatrics, Batman!

24 August 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Bear with me once again as we step into the “borrowed” Wabac machine to visit another era – one fraught with its own cultural peccadillos, its own world-view, and its own sensibilities.

You’ve probably heard that WB is extending their never-ending line of direct-to-disc DC-based animated features this fall to include a new, original, and undoubtedly awesome story set in the world of the 1966 Batman teevee show. In order to do this effectively they needed to procure the services of the sadly few surviving series stars, so they wisely put Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar in a recording studio to belt out their performances as Batman, Robin and Catwoman-the-first, respectively.

None found this a new experience. West has been voicing all sorts of stuff – most notably, Family Guy, although he returned to Gotham City in several of the subsequent animated Batman teevee series. Ward voiced Robin in numerous animated shows, »

Movie Review – Bad Moms (2016)

24 August 2016 2:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bad Moms, 2016.

Written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.

Starring Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Christina Applegate, Jada Pinkett Smith and Jay Hernandez.

Synopsis:

When three overworked and under-appreciated moms are pushed beyond their limits, they ditch their conventional responsibilities for a jolt of long overdue freedom, fun, and comedic self-indulgence.

The fact that writer-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore make a conscious effort to state their film’s title in excess of ten times throughout is a key indicator of just how remarkably false it is: an awkward and vapid droid carved from the entrails of the equally dour The Hangover franchise, Bad Moms is so disastrously unfunny and tonally misjudged that every time the leading ladies bellow out their newly-adopted branding, you can’t help but grimace.

Like so many modern comedies, little attention is paid to story and character because we simply don’t »

TV Ratings Report: The Olympics Close Low

22 August 2016 11:03 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The Olympics just didn't have the same appeal that other years have had. 

NBC: Summer Olympics Closing Ceremony (16.9 million/4.0 rating) posted the lowest night of the Olympics. A special episode of The Voice (10.4 million/2.7 rating) didn't get much of a bump.

CBS: Big Brother (5.9 million/1.8 rating) was on par with its season average, but BrainDead (2 million/0.3 rating) continued to flop out of an encore of Madam Secretary (2.4 million/0.4 rating).

ABC: Celebrity Family Feud (5.6 million/1.1 rating), The $100,000 Pyramid (4.8 million/1.0 rating) and Match Game (4.2 million/0.9 rating) struggled to compete. 

Fox: Encores of The Simpsons (1.5 million/0.6 rating), Brooklyn Nine-Nine (1.2 million/0.5 rating), Family Guy (1.4 million/0.6 rating) and The Last Man On Earth (1 million/0.4 rating) filled the night.

The Tick (2016) pilot review

22 August 2016 9:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Aug 22, 2016

Spoooooon! Here’s what we made of the Peter Serafinowicz-starring pilot for The Tick, now available on Amazon Prime…

“We need superheroes!” says a radio phone-in caller in The Tick pilot, a demand TV and film could scarcely be catering to more fully right now. Superheroes of all stripes—gritty, damaged, ironic or R-rated—aren't something we lack for.

That wasn’t the case thirty years ago when Ben Edlund created satirical comic book hero The Tick, nor when the character appeared in a 1994 Fox animated series or, briefly, a 2001 live-action comedy. The current glut either makes now the perfect time for a revival of Edlund’s character (every dominant cultural product needs a subversive sidekick) or risks it feeling crowded-out and irrelevant.
