There's lots of data that NBC looks at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but the ratings are typically the biggest piece. Here's how the network's shows are doing.
There comes a moment in the premiere episode of Younger, TV Land’s newest comedy, when the 40-year-old character played by Bunheads alum Sutton Foster is mocked by two twenty-somethings in a locker room for — how shall we put this? — being a less-than-diligent tender of her lady garden.
“It was hilarious to shoot it,” Foster tells TVLine. “Obviously, we’re on TV Land and you can’t show anything, but I had to, like, take off my panties.” She laughs. “I was like, ‘What am I doing?’ [The cameras are] angling on me as I’m taking off my panties and I thought, »
The season finale of Fox’s monster rookie drama “Empire” came within a tick of catching AMC’s “The Walking Dead” as primetime’s biggest draw among young adults last week but it was enough to put the network on top.
Fox won outright in adults 18-49 for the first time in two months, averaging a 1.8 rating/6 share in Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” estimates for the week of March 16-22. It was followed by the closely bunched CBS (1.5/5), NBC (1.4/5) and ABC (1.4/4).
CBS and Fox tied for the lead among adults 25-54 (2.0/7) while the Eye won easily in total viewers (7.2 million to 6.2 million for runner-up ABC).
At Fox, “Empire” capped its amazing first season by continuing its streak of growing audience with each episode since its Jan. 7 premiere and standing as the week’s most-watched show for the first time. It actually claimed the top two spots because Fox broke »

RelatedPilot Season: Scoop on This Fall’s (Possible) New Shows and Stars
TVLine has learned that the Psych alumna has landed the second lead role in the single-camera CBS comedy pilot, as Allison, a multi-tasker and perfectionist who is leery when a woman named Amy (Glee grad Lynch) shows up claiming to be her “guardian angel” and new best friend.
Allison is inclined to believe that Amy is just a nutjob — except that every last one of the stranger’s pronouncements comes true.
Come mid-May (if not sooner), the networks will be have to make some tough calls about which remaining “bubble” series will return for the 2015-16 TV season, and which — cue ominous thunderclap — won’t. As they sweat out those decisions, TVLine welcomes you to review our gallery of renew/cancel polls and have your say.

Update: In updated Nielsen nationals released Wednesday afternoon, the NBC comedies held at their preliminary demo rating while lead-in “The Voice” was revised up a tenth (3.2/11 in 18-49, 12.82 million viewers overall).
The only other changes came at CW, where “The Flash” was revised up a tick (1.3/5 in 18-49, 3.69 million viewers overall) but “iZombie” edged down (0.8/3 in 18-49, 2.29 million viewers overall). While this is a pretty good total-viewer number for “Zombie,” the new drama retained just half of its adults 18-34 lead-in (0.6 vs. 1.2).
Cable’s top original program on Tuesday was Own’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” (0.91 rating in 18-49, 3.03 million viewers overall) one week from its season finale.
NBC comedies “Undateable” and “One Big Happy” generated solid sampling for their premieres on Tuesday and won their timeslots among young adults, though they will face tougher timeslot competition in the weeks ahead. CW also had reason to be pleased »

Fast National ratings for Tuesday, March 17, 2015. While it was "The Voice" and "Chicago Fire" that really paved the way for NBC's Tuesday wins, the "Undateable"/"One Big Happy" comedy block got off to an Ok start and certainly didn't prevent those Tuesday wins. "Undateable" and "One Big Happy" took advantage of a 9 p.m. hour in which "NCIS: New Orleans" and "New Girl" were in repeats, but still came in below the fall premieres for "Marry Me" and "About a Boy," though they were in line with the second week for those comedies, so we'll see how the numbers look next Tuesday. Without a new "NCIS: New Orleans," ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." ticked up week-to-week. Tuesday's other big premiere was The CW's "iZombie," which had a low-ish "Flash" return as its lead-in, but debuted to numbers comparable to what "Supernatural" had been doing in the time period. »

One Big Happy, NBC‘s latest sit-com effort, is set to have a great premiere just off the back of promotion by executive producer Ellen Degeneres. The real question is whether or not people are going to come back, and if it can expand its market beyond the viewers who are dedicated Ellen fans.
One of the best indicators of its success (or lack thereof) may be its lead-in, Undateable. The shows are well-paired, with not only much in common, but a similar comedic style. They are also shows that aren’t exactly the kind of efforts that will shoot out of the gates. They need to grow on you a bit before you come around to appreciating what a blast they are. That’s a tough road in today’s world, as Undateable fans can attest, since it wasn’t a sure thing it would be returning for a while. »

One of the reasons fan speculation makes my job difficult is because many people do not understand the difference between fan speculation and news, and in a world where bloggers blur that line all the time, things spread and become fact, whether they are or not. For the last year or so, it has been "common knowledge" that the first stand-alone "Star Wars" film was going to be about Boba Fett. I've seen that printed hundreds of times now. I've seen people discussing it as if Disney had announced it. And I'm sure for many people, they absolutely believed it as fact. Truth is, it was only ever a rumor, and for the last year, I've taken a fair amount of heat for saying that I was fairly sure Gareth Edwards was not, in fact, directing a Boba Fett movie. The other rumor that was very popular was that they »
