'Bones' Says Goodbye After 12 Seasons: How the 'Squint Squad' Passed Every Test (Especially the Bechdel)

10 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

When Bones signs off on Tuesday night, after 12 seasons on Fox, it will do so as the network’s longest-running scripted drama, having solved -- according to finale promos -- 275 cases in 246 episodes. And that prolific conviction rate may not even be the most impressive thing that the series accomplished.

Because Bones -- which was based on the life and works of real-life forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs -- did more than just stay on the air, leapfrogging more than 20 different time slots in its 12-year run. In a television landscape populated with morose antiheroes and sarcastic protagonists that often poke fun at the earnestness of cops-and-science procedurals like Bones, sometimes directly by name (see: American Dad, Bojack Horseman, Bob’s Burgers and more), the show was a champion of justice and evidence, science and guts, “brains and heart.” It told new stories every week, while at the same time unfolding its central characters little by little, making »

27 March 2017 1:29 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

So, will it be renewed for a 15th season? Stay tuned.On Family Guy, Peter Griffin and his family and friends continue to have crazy mishaps in the Rhode Island town of Quahog.

TV Ratings: ‘60 Minutes’ Gets Big March Madness Boost

27 March 2017 8:55 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

An absurdly perfect finish to the final Elite Eight game of March Madness — unless you’re a Kentucky fan — provided quite the boost to “60 Minutes” last night. The last-minute tie and subsequent last-second breaking of that tie, which handed the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill their fourth trip to the Final Four in the last 10 years, drew a massive crowd on Sunday night in Nielsen’s preliminary fast national numbers. From 7 to 7:30 p.m. (the game lasted a few minutes longer), the Unc-Kentucky game on CBS garnered a 5.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic and an average audience of 20.66 million. “60 Minutes” consequently drew its best numbers since the middle of the NFL season: A 2.7 rating in the demo and 14.89 million viewers, winning the night by a ridiculous margin.

After “60 Minutes,” “NCIS: Los Angeles” pulled in a 1.6 demo rating and 11.27 million viewers. “Madam Secretary” followed with a 1.1 in the demo and 8.46 million viewers. “Elementary »

Et Obsessions: ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,’ Hulu’s ‘Harlots,’ ‘Boss Baby’ and GLAAD Media Awards

27 March 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Here at Et, we’re obsessed with a lot of things -- and for the week of March 27 to April 2, this is what we’re most excited about:

Why We’re Obsessed With 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory -- The Musical'

It’s a childhood favorite that’s been transformed from book to screen, and now the tale where sweet dreams come true hits the Broadway stage. Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka, will make its Broadway debut following a successful run in London. Two-time Tony Award winner Christian Borle will take on the role famously originated by Gene Wilder in the 1971 film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. “There are certain things people are craving to see, but we also want to surprise them,” Borle says of playing Wonka onstage. Will he recreate Wilder’s famous onscreen entrance? That’s still to be determined. “To make this »

TV Ratings Report: Did Once Upon a Time Recover?

27 March 2017 8:40 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

ABC's Once Upon a Time may be able to clinch a renewal, after all. 

ABC: Once Upon a Time (3 million/0.9 rating) picked up a tenth, while Time After Time (1.9 million/0.4 rating) remained even. American Crime (1.6 million/0.3 rating), however, plunged to an all-time low.

Watch Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 14 Online

The show has been renewed due to the awards love in the past, but something tells me this will be the final go around for the anthology series. 

NBC: Little Big Shots (9.7 million/1.7 rating) went up two-tenths, while Chicago Justice (5.8 million/1.0 rating) and Shades of Blue (4.4 million/0.8 rating) were stable. 

CBS: NCIS: Los Angeles (11.3 million/1.6 rating) and Madam Secretary (8.5 million/1.1 rating) look up, but their numbers are scrambled due to delayed start times.

Fox: It was Bob's Burgers (1.9 million/0.9 rating), Making History (1.6 million/0.7 rating), Family Guy (2.4 million/1.1 rating) and Last Man On »

TV Ratings: March Madness Wreaks Havoc, ‘Little Big Shots’ Gets a Little Less Big

20 March 2017 9:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

March Madness took over Sunday night television.

Buoyed by a hoops overrun — Kansas’ 90-70 drubbing of Michigan State to head to the Sweet 16 pushed CBS’ schedule back about 35 minutes in the Eastern and Central time zones — CBS was the winner for the night in the 18-49 demographic and total viewers. That 35 minutes of the Ncaa tournament in Sunday primetime (which starts at 7 p.m.) notched a 3.5 in the demo and drew an average audience of 13.18 million in Nielsen’s preliminary fast national numbers. That lead-in boosted “60 Minutes” to a 1.7 demo rating and an average audience of 10.58 million (last week’s installment, which didn’t come out of sports overrun, drew a 1.2 and 9.97 million viewers). “NCIS: Los Angeles” brought in a 1.2 and 8.99 million viewers. “Madam Secretary” drew a 0.8 in the demo and 7.22 million viewers. “Elementary” came in with a 0.6 and 4.37 million viewers.

Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Anna Kendrick and More Stars Who Crushed on Animated Characters

20 March 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It seems animation is the quickest way to a star's young heart.  Emma Watson, for example, unapologetically revealed recently that she's been harboring a secret crush on her Beauty and the Beast non-human counterpart.  "There's something a bit sad about when he transforms," she told Yahoo! "You're like a bit...oh...okay you were quite nice before. He is hot. The Beast is hot." She's not alone in crushing on childhood characters. Her Harry Potter co-star Rupert Grint recalled the moment he first saw his own cartoon dream girl as a kid.  "I liked Bo Peep in Toy Story….Lois Griffin, Family Guy….I think it was »

TV Ratings Report: Once Upon a Time Hits New Series Lows

20 March 2017 8:49 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Is Once Upon a Time inching closer to being sent to the TV show scrap heap?

ABC: Once Upon a Time (2.7 million/0.8 rating) slipped a tenth, while Time After Time (1.8 million/0.4 rating) and American Crime (1.9 million/0.4 rating) went lower than probably everyone thought was possible. 

Watch Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 13 Online

Will ABC let them ride out the rest of the season? Even with Once Upon a Time at lows, it still rated higher than the two duds that aired after it. 

NBC: Little Big Shots (9.3 million/1.5 rating), Chicago Justice (5.7 million/1.0 rating) and Shades of Blue (4.1 million/0.8 rating) slipped. Could Chicago Justice be the first entry in the franchise not to make a second season?

CBS: NCIS: Los Angeles (9 million/1.2 rating) was up a tenth, while Madam Secretary (7.2 million/0.8 rating) and Elementary (4.6 million/0.6 rating) were both steady. 

Fox: Making History (1.6 million/0.7 rating) continued to be a disappointment, »

Ranking Amazon's 2017 Spring Pilots: The Good, the Bad and the Genuinely Wtf

Another season, another batch of Amazon pilots – it's the gift that keeps on giving. In the spirit of a true democracy (feel free to add your own cynical popular-vote joke here), the streaming service will offer up a number of first episodes for maybe-possibly future shows. The audience gets to decide what series should get full orders. You may get the next Transparent; you may get a burning pile of trash. Regardless, it's the viewer who gives these would-be TV classics the thumbs up, thumbs down, or sideways-thumbs-across-the-throat gesture. You »

St. Patrick’s Day: 7 TV Episodes on Netflix That Are Even Better Than a Pot of Gold

17 March 2017 1:06 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With so much hype surrounding shows’ Christmas and Halloween specials, it’s easy to forget that there have been some great St. Patrick’s Day episodes in the TV world. So here are a lucky seven episodes that’ll get you excited to celebrate the holiday! Or make you want to stay at home and chill, since all are available to stream on Netflix.

“30 Rock”

Like a double rainbow, “30 Rock” gave its fans not one, but two reasons to get excited, as it aired two St. Patrick’s Day episodes in 2009 and 2012. However, the 2009 episode, “The Funcooker,” is the standout. Written by Tom Ceraulo and Donald Glover, the episode sees Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) attend jury duty, in which the woman on trial hilariously reflects Liz’s own work problems. She must also juggle problems that arise when her show’s stars (Tracy Morgan and Jane Krakowski) pass out and curse while hosting the St. »

Did This Is Us' Jack Ask for Beating? Should Kimmel Host Bachelor Rehash? Loose Lips on NCIS? And More Qs!

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including The Vampire Diaries, The Bachelor, This Is Us and NCIS!

1 | Was The Vampire’s Diaries‘ heavy focus on the afterlife in its series finale oddly Lost-like? And what’s with the blotty ink on Klaus’ check? (Is it because he writes with an old-timey quill?) And could the tiny “En” in “Often” look any more like a last-minute addition to “Oft”?
