TV Ratings: 'Survivor,' 'Amazing Race' premieres can't halt 'Empire' rise

26 February 2015 8:45 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, February 25, 2015. With "Survivor" coming in to seemingly inevitably take a bite out of "American Idol," this looked like a good week for Fox to finally suffer a tiny Wednesday night decline. Nope. While "American Idol" posted a very small drop against the latest "Survivor" premiere, "Empire" remained an unfathomable force-of-nature, rising yet again in both viewers and the key demo as Fox was up week-to-week in dominating Wednesday in all measures. The "Survivor" finale was down in young viewers from the fall launch, but not by enough to even acknowledge. The "Survivor" audience is what it is -- actually up a hair overall -- and in Season 30, that's mighty impressive. On the sadder side, even on a better night and with a lead-in, "The Amazing Race" failed to get much for a bump for its latest premiere, before heading back to Friday. There were nice »

TV Review: ‘Battle Creek’

26 February 2015 7:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A bit of an outlier for CBS, “Battle Creek” has about as much heft as the prize in a box of cereal, yet it’s also a great deal of fun. A long-dormant, pre-“Breaking Bad” script from Vince Gilligan provides the foundation for this lighthearted series produced under the stewardship of “House’s” David Shore, with Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters well cast as mismatched lawmen. Tonally similar to “Picket Fences,” the concept becomes a bit more mundane as the episodes progress. At least initially, though, the mix of quirky comedy and drama seems nicely suited to its post-“The Good Wife” precinct.

Winters plays Det. Russ Agnew, the standout cop on an underfunded force in the relatively quiet confines of Battle Creek, Mich., whose world is turned topsy-turvy by the arrival of Special Agent Milton Chamberlain (Duhamel), the straight-out-of-central-casting FBI operative stationed there.

TV Ratings: 2015 Academy Awards numbers appear to be down

23 February 2015 9:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Sunday, February 22, 2015. Whether it was lack of interest in the nominated films, lack of interest in host Neil Patrick Harris or a third thing that could cause disinterest, overnight ratings for the 2015 Academy Awards were down double-digits from last year's telecast in most measures. Of course, ABC's Oscars coverage still dominated Sunday, which featured only low-rated installments of "60 Minutes" and "Dateline" as new competition. Remember the usual provisos: These are time period-specific numbers for ABC and *not* numbers for the Academy Awards telecast. On the East Coast, the show went over an hour over outside of primetime. On the West Coast, the first 90 minutes of the show were outside of Sunday primetime. The actual numbers for the Oscars will adjust up. They always do. Stay tuned for those real Oscars ratings a bit later. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, ABC averaged an 8.8 rating for Sunday night, »

Supergirl: Laura Benanti cast as Alura Zor-El

22 February 2015 6:07 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Supergirl’s mother will be played by Laura Benanti in the upcoming CBS series…

It’s been nearly a month since our last update on the CBS Supergirl series, which saw Mehcad Brooks join the cast as a new cooled-up screen version of photographer Jimmy Olsen. Now, we’ve learnt about another addition to the cast – Laura Benanti, who will play Alura Zor-El, the birth mother of Supergirl, aka Kara (played by Melissa Benoist of Glee and Whiplash).

In terms of character description specific to the show, what we know so far is that Alura is “a strong noblewoman, [who] sends Kara to Earth to escape Krypton’s destruction. Her wisdom and guidance echoes across space and time, proving invaluable on Kara’s journey toward becoming Supergirl.”

It sounds like she might be doing a Russell-Crowe-in-Man-Of-Steel, then, popping up throughout the narrative to help out her estranged offspring with words of wisdom. »

21 February 2015 2:13 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Will Smith / Margot Robbie crime caper Focus is set to arrive in cinemas next week, and to whet our appetites another trailer has arrived online, which you can watch below after the official synopsis…

Will Smith stars as Nicky, a seasoned master of misdirection who becomes romantically involved with novice con artist Jess (Margot Robbie).  As he’s teaching her the tricks of the trade, she gets too close for comfort and he abruptly breaks it off.  Three years later, the former flame—now an accomplished femme fatale—shows up in Buenos Aires in the middle of the high stakes racecar circuit.  In the midst of Nicky’s latest, very dangerous scheme, she throws his plans for a loop…and the consummate con man off his game.

Focus is set for release February 27th and also features a cast that includes Rodrigo Santoro (300), Gerald McRaney (House of Cards), Bd Wong »

TV Ratings: Inexorable 'Empire' rise continues against 'Mentalist' finale

19 February 2015 8:47 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, February 18, 2015. For the sixth straight week, Fox's "Empire" grew in viewers and for the fifth time in six weeks the odds-defying juggernaut rose among young viewers, joining the flat "American Idol" to help Fox dominate Wednesday in all measures. Wednesday's series finale for "The Mentalist" was up from last week's episode in viewers, but down in the key demo, while "Modern Family," "Nashville" and "Stalker" were also down. After finishing last week in a three-week 10 p.m. tie in the key demo, "Chicago Pd" had first to itself after a nice bump, which was boosted by an up week for "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit." The CW's "Arrow" also rose. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, Fox averaged a 3.9 rating for Wednesday night, tops in the key demographic. Fox's key demo tally beat ABC's 2.0 key demo rating and the 1.4 key demo rating for NBC combined. »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, February 11, 2015.

The horror of Law & Order's women and gaming episode

12 February 2015 4:27 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Us crime drama series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit made an episode about women and the games industry. The results were perplexing.

Ice-t pretending to play a first-person shooter and loudly explaining what "campers" are. Ice-t spending an entire episode of a crime drama series telling people what an Fps is, or name-dropping Kotaku.

Those are just a few of the extraordinary things which took place in a recent episode of Us TV's crime drama series, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Its story sees a female developer named Rayna Punjabi attempt to launch AmaZonian Warriors, a game where "You can choose how you want to play. You can choose peace or war, have a patriarchy or a matriarchy, be eco-conscious or industrialised."

"I know," replies detective and games expert Odafin Tutuola (Ice-t). "I read on Kotaku that it's better than Civ V with the Brave New World expansion pack."

'Constantine' Might Move to Syfy as 'Hellblazer'

8 February 2015 10:32 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in November, NBC announced that production has stopped on Constantine, with the network deciding not to order any more episodes after its 13-episode order. The show does still remain in contention for a Season 2 renewal, but, with the show airing its season finale "Waiting for the Man" this week, many are wondering what the network's plans for the show are. A new report from Cinelinx reveals that the show, which has been struggling in the ratings but does have a passionate fan base, may continue on Syfy, where it will be rebranded as Hellblazer.

Nothing is set in stone at this time, but this is something the netwrok is currently considering. NBC reportedly doesn't want to give up on the show quite yet, since, after the production stoppage was announced, a slew of #SaveConstantine messages popped up on various social networking platforms. The move to Syfy would give the »
