Ratings: ‘Arrow’ Premiere Falls 36 Percent From Last Year

6 October 2016 8:27 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“Arrow” missed the target by a wide margin on Wednesday night, with the Season 5 premiere of the CW series down almost 36 percent in the key demo compared to the Season 4 premiere. Airing at 8 p.m. Et, “Arrow” pulled in just a 0.7 rating in the key adults 18-49 demographic and 1.9 million viewers. In addition to being down in the demo, the show was also down more than 29 percent in total viewers, as well, according to Nielsen estimates. The CW also premiered its new show “Frequency,” immediately following “Arrow.” The series, based on the Jim Caviezel movie »

Frequency Premiere: Is The CW's Time- Travel Drama Worth More of Your Time?

5 October 2016 6:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Time travel is all the rage on TV right now, from escapist fun (Timeless) to sweeping romance (Outlander). The CW’s Frequency — a reboot of the 2000 Dennis Quaid film — opts for the heartstring-tugging route, with a daughter reconnecting with her deceased dad via a magical radio.

Wednesday’s series premiere introduced us to Raimy Sullivan (Mad Men‘s Peyton List), an NYPD detective in present-day Queens, with a nice boyfriend who’s about to pop the question. But Raimy’s still haunted by the memory of her cop dad Frank (Nashville‘s Riley Smith), who died while working undercover twenty years ago, »

‘Frequency’ Creator Explains Show’s ‘Butterfly-Effect Rules’

5 October 2016 1:13 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jeremy Carver doesn’t necessarily consider his new series “Frequency” a time-travel show, though it’s a handy shorthand in a season lousy with time travel programs. “Let’s put it this way: It’s a lot snappier to say it’s a time-travel show than a cross-time communication show,” the showrunner told TheWrap in a recent interview about his series, which is an updated remake of the 2000 Dennis Quaid film of the same name. This time around, it’s 2016, and police detective Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) inexplicably finds herself able to communicate on an old ham radio with her father, »

‘Frequency’ Review: CW Joins TV’s Time-Travel Craze With Peyton List Drama

5 October 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Back in 2000, the Gregory Hoblit movie “Frequency” opened to strong box-office and generally upbeat reviews. Dennis Quaid and Jim Caviezel played father and son crossing time via ham radio to perform gymnastics of weather, time and space — and of course gain the joy of a moving emotional closure. The CW is performing its own time-travel experiment (one of several in a nostalgia-crowded season), using Hoblit’s thriller as the source of a flawed but watchable small-screen reimagining of the original film. “Frequency” the series revels in the fanciful liberties of leapfrogging time, just as the movie did. But the producers. »

Peyton List-icle: 6 Ways to Identify Which Peyton List Is Which

5 October 2016 11:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Peyton List is an American actress and model.”

This Wikipedia description is accurate and true. The problem? It’s true about two different people. That’s right. Two Peyton Lists are working actresses and models. Two Peyton Lists are, um, listed on IMDb. Two Peyton Lists are currently on our TVs. Two Peyton Lists are confusing our Google searches. Two Peyton Lists are messing with our minds.

In the face of what would appear to be a surfeit of Peyton Lists, it would be easy to just lump them together or wash our hands of them completely. But that would be a disservice to the work that each Peyton List has put into her career (not to mention lazy).

Frequency review – time travel thriller is surprise small screen winner

5 October 2016 7:52 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A remake of the 2000 Dennis Quaid sci-fi thriller manages to remain exciting and original, despite its dusty heritage

The two biggest trends of the 2016 television season are remakes (Lethal Weapon, MacGyver, The Exorcist) and time travel shows (Timeless, the upcoming Time After Time and Making History). It would seem that Frequency is the conflation of these two separate threads, but hardly anyone remembers the 2000 Dennis Quaid movie that the series is based on and no one actually travels through time. They just talk about it on the radio. Maybe it’s because it has both of these traits – or maybe because it doesn’t really have either – that Frequency is the best of either bunch.

Our Staff Picks: TV Shows to Watch the Week of Oct. 3, 2016

3 October 2016 4:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Welcome back to Tune In: our new weekly newsletter, offering a guide to the best of the week’s TV.

Each week, Variety’s TV team will be combing through the week’s TV schedule, selecting our picks. We’ll tell readers what to watch and when/how to watch it. This week, more new series are making their fall debuts.

“Timeless,” NBC, Monday, 10 p.m. (Critics Pick)

Every now and then, a show comes along that is so ridiculous, so expansively silly, that it goes around the bend from meaningless to meaningful, from a blank canvas to one whose emptiness signifies something profound. NBC’s “Timeless” is such a show — maybe. It’s either unintentionally brilliant or unintentionally just very funny. The drama is a time-traveling adventure procedural in which an unlikely trio of heroes follows history-changing criminals as they hop through significant events of the past. In the pilot episode, the »

Review: NBC's time-travel adventure 'Timeless' gets the human element right

3 October 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All time travel stories are gibberish — and I say this as someone who has spent a lot of my life reading, watching, and enjoying stories about time travel. No matter how thoroughly the rules of traveling to the past or future have been laid out and explained to the audience, they never fully make sense, never entirely manage to duck under the question of paradox, and will always make your brain hurt if you try to think about it too hard. The climax of the Jim Caviezel/Dennis Quaid movie Frequency(*), to name one, falls apart halfway through, because Quaid does something to the bad guy in the past that would certainly prevent him from being in front of Caviezel in the present(**). (*) Frequency is, conveniently for this review, being turned into a TV show, debuting Wednesday night at 9 on the CW. I enjoyed the pilot — which gender flips the »

Frequency Casts Supernatural Vet as Imprisoned 'Wily Trickster'

15 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Supernatural angel is taking on a tricky new role.

Curtis Armstrong, who recurred as the celestial being Metatron on the long-running CW series, will guest-star on Frequency, the new CW drama from former Supernatural showrunner Jeremy Carver, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Armstrong will play Karl Pierce, a manipulative and charming former quantum physics professor who’s gone to the dark side. He is described as a wily trickster — but not The Trickster, Supe fans! — who likely went over the edge long ago, but instead wears the mask of an erratic genius.

In Defense of the Reboot: How Remakes Can Still Result in Great TV

8 September 2016 3:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s not just a cliche: Everything old is indeed new again on TV, particularly this upcoming season.

Fox is leading the drive, with three upcoming shows based on existing titles: “The Exorcist,” a new take on an old horror franchise; “Lethal Weapon,” a remake of the 1980s buddy comedy, and “Prison Break,” which is a continuation of that original series (expected in early 2017). CBS is also on the bandwagon, with new takes on “MacGyver” and “Training Day.”

The networks went through a similar exercise last year, and the results were mixed. At Fox, “Minority Report” was a dud, but the return of “The X-Files” was a massive ratings hit. CBS’ “Rush Hour” was a miss, but a new version of “The Odd Couple” is picking up steam.

Just as sequel and franchise mania envelops the film biz, it’s easy to knock TV for its constant desire to ride the wayback machine. »

Past Meets Present in new promo for the Frequency TV series

6 September 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a month to go until its season premiere, a new promo has arrived online for The CW’s  upcoming drama Frequency entitled ‘Past Meets Present’.  A re-imagining of the 2000 sci-fi thriller of the same name, the series stars Peyton List, Riley Smith, Mekhi Phifer, Anthony Ruivivar, Lenny Jacobson, Devin Kelley and Daniel Bonjour; watch it below after the official synopsis…

Detective Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) has always wanted to prove that she is nothing like her father. In 1996, when Raimy was eight years old, NYPD Officer Frank Sullivan (Riley Smith) left Raimy and her mother, Julie (Devin Kelley), behind when he went deep undercover, got corrupted, and got himself killed. Or so the story has always gone. Now, twenty years later, Raimy is stunned when a voice suddenly crackles through her father’s old, long-broken ham radio – it’s Frank, somehow transmitting over the airwaves and through the decades »

20 new fall TV shows to get excited about

30 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Once upon a time, conventional wisdom in TV suggested that any shows debuting outside of the fall were in some way lesser than the ones launching in September and October. Thanks to cable, streaming, and even a transformation of the way the broadcast networks schedule things, the roles have almost entirely reversed: now the really special stuff gets saved for January or later, while a lot of what's scheduled for a more traditional launch can be viewed as cannon fodder. This TV season, for instance, Fox is saving its revivals of 24 and Prison Break for 2017, and the CW is doing the same with its highest-profile new series, Riverdale. But there's still a lot of promising stuff coming this fall across broadcast, cable, and streaming — not just the welcome return of shows like Rectify, You're the Worst, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but a far more exciting batch of new series than were »

Is 16-Year-Old Film ‘Frequency’ Ripe For A TV Reboot? – TCA

11 August 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

When the 2000 New Line sci-fi dramatic feature Frequency was released, it wasn’t a mass-appealing success, opening third at the box office with $9M and legging out to $45M. The film starred Jim Caviezel as a grown man who communicates with his late father, a former fireman (Dennis Quaid), across 30 years via a ham radio and attempts to save dad’s life before he perishes in a warehouse fire.

‘Arrow’ Adds Artemis for Season 5 (Exclusive)

21 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Troubled teen Evelyn Sharp (Madison McLaughlin) will return to “Arrow” in Season 5, Variety has learned, and after her brief stint behind Black Canary’s mask last season, she’s definitely been bitten by the vigilante bug. Evelyn was last seen in episode 419, “Canary Cry,” when she impersonated the fallen Black Canary to seek revenge on Damien and Ruvé Darhk for the murder of her parents.

McLaughlin will be reprising her role as Evelyn for multiple episodes beginning in episode 502, and will be taking on a new DC Comics persona: Having tried to assume the mantle of Black Canary last season, Evelyn now aims to forge her own identity as the masked archer known as Artemis.

In the comics, Artemis was the daughter of villains Tigress and Sportsmaster, and a member of the Injustice Society, although the character was given a heroic twist in DC animated series “Young Justice,” where she became Green Arrow’s sidekick after Roy Harper »
