Pasquin takes 'Congeniality'

11 December 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Joe Somebody helmer John Pasquin has closed a deal to direct Sandra Bullock in Miss Congeniality 2 for Warner Bros. Pictures. Shooting is scheduled to start in the spring in Los Angeles. The project-- a Castle Rock Entertainment presentation in association with Village Roadshow Pictures -- will find Bullock reprising her role as Special Agent Gracie Hart. There is no other talent attached to the project, according to the studio. Bullock will again produce from a script by Marc Lawrence, who also penned the original Donald Petrie-directed film. Released in 2000, the first installment cleared $100 million at the boxoffice from a budget in the $45 million range. Pasquin's deal to direct Bullock likely stems from their previous relationship: Pasquin helmed several episodes of ABC's George Lopez, which is produced by Bullock's production company, Fortis Films. His other credits include Payne, Soul Man, Jungle 2 Jungle, The Santa Clause and Home Improvement. »

Nets' diversity gets mixed marks

14 October 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The major broadcast networks have made significant strides in hiring Latino talent over the past year but are virtually ignoring Asian Americans in primetime series, according to reports issued Monday by two advocacy groups. Delivering its fourth annual report card that grades networks on their efforts to promote diversity, the Los Angeles-based National Latino Media Council hailed the broadcasters -- especially ABC and Fox -- for increased hiring of Latinos both on-camera and off. "The overall grades for all four networks are very encouraging; we are finally seeing some progress," Esteban Torres, a retired congressman who chairs the council, said in a statement. The council -- which graded the networks on opportunities for minority actors, directors, writer-producers and executives as well as on program development, procurement and overall commitment to diversity -- singled out for praise such Latino-themed series as ABC's sitcom The George Lopez Show, NBC's narcotics drama Kingpin (a midseason show from 2002-03 that did not make the fall schedule) and Fox's comedy The Ortegas, which was recently delayed to midseason from a scheduled fall launch. »

Friday dramas give edge to CBS

6 October 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

CBS stayed hot with its newly configured drama slate on the second Friday of the fall season, even as most of the Big Three networks' new offerings on the night suffered week-to-week ratings declines from the previous week's season premieres. A baseball overrun boosted Fox to the nightly win on Saturday, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. It was slow going Saturday at 10 p.m. for the return of ABC's revamped Dick Wolf drama L.A. Dragnet, which was forced to compete with an NBC rerun of Wolf's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. On Friday, CBS' buzzworthy new 8 p.m. drama Joan of Arcadia again won its time slot in viewers and adults 18-49 with an average 12 million viewers and 3.0 rating/11 share. Joan was down from last week's premiere (13.2 million viewers, 3.7/11), as was NBC's Miss Match (6.2 million, 2.0/7). Miss Match ranked third in adults 18-49 in the time slot behind Joan and ABC's comedies George Lopez (7.8 million, 2.7/10) and the 8:30 p.m. bow of Married to the Kellys (8.2 million, 2.9/10), which built slightly on its lead-in. »

ABC sticks fork in 'Real Roseanne'

20 August 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

ABC has pulled The Real Roseanne Show, a documentary-style series featuring Roseanne Barr putting together a cooking show, off the schedule effective Wednesday. The move follows sibling cable network ABC Family's decision to pull the plug on the cooking show that was the subject of Real Roseanne, Domestic Goddess, after production on the 13-episode series was initially delayed because Barr needed to undergo hysterectomy. The Real Roseanne opened weakly Aug. 6 in the Wednesday 9 p.m. hour with 5.5 million viewers and a 2.2 rating/7 share among adults 18-49 and slipped even further in its second airing last week to 4.3 million viewers and a 1.8/5 in 18-49. Beginning tomorrow, ABC will air repeat episodes of comedy George Lopez at 9 p.m. and a combination of original and repeat episodes of The Drew Carey Show at 9 p.m. until the launch of the new season in late September. »

Fox wins demo, CBS draws most viewers Wednesday

14 August 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Fox was hot on Wednesday with Paradise Hotel but CBS was hotter with Big Brother 4. Fox won the night in the adults 18-49 demographic (3.3 rating/11 share) thanks to 9 p.m. reality series Paradise (6.8 million viewers and 3.5/11 in adults 18-49) and 8-9 p.m. repeats of That '70s Show (6.3 million, 3.2/12) and The Simpsons (6 million, 3.0/10). CBS led the primetime pack in total viewers (9.2 million) and ranked No. 2 in the demo (3.0/10) with a steady performance throughout the night from 60 Minutes II (9 million, 2.4/9), Big Brother 4 (9.8 million, 3.9/12) and 48 Hours Investigates (8.7 million, 2.8/9). NBC got off to a slow start at 8 p.m. with Race to the Altar (4.7 million, 1.8/7) and the 9 p.m. West Wing rerun (5.2 million, 1.7/5) but things perked up with the 10 p.m. rerun of Law & Order (8.7 million, 3.1/9). ABC's highlight of the night was the spunk showed by the 8:30 p.m. repeat of George Lopez (7.5 million, 3.0/11) which has showed signs of blossoming into a significant player for ABC in its extensive rerun exposure this summer. ABC's lowlights were the second episode of The Real Roseanne Show (4.2 million, 1.8/5) and 10 p.m. reality series The Family (4 million, 1.8/6), which kept the network in last place for the night (5.1 million, 2.1/7). »

'Law' reruns arrest viewers

11 July 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Back-to-back Law & Order reruns carried the night for NBC on Wednesday, while Fox took the adults 18-49 demo with a 90-minute dose of Paradise Hotel. CBS' 10 p.m. matchmaking show Cupid got off to a respectable start in its premiere, though it dipped in viewers from its Big Brother 4 lead-in. Cupid opened with an average of 7.4 million viewers and a 3.5 rating/10 share in 18-49, according to Nielsen Media Research. At 9 p.m., the second episode of this summer's installment of Big Brother averaged 9 million viewers and a 3.7/11 in 18-49. ABC's 10 p.m. series The Dating Experiment looks to be doing a fast fade, averaging 3.5 million viewers and a 1.5/4 in 18-49 against Cupid and NBC's Law & Order rerun (12.4 million, 3.8/12), which was the most-watched program of the night. On the plus side, ABC was competitive from 8-9 p.m. with sitcom reruns My Wife & Kids (8 million, 3.1/11) and George Lopez (8.4 million, 3.4/11). Fox's Paradise Hotel (6.3 million, 3.4/10) ran second to Big Brother in the 9 p.m. hour. Surprisingly, Paradise Hotel grew from the previous week, despite the heightened competition from Big Brother. The peacock took the night in total viewers (9.8 million), while Fox prevailed in adults 18-49 (3.2/10). NBC was No. 2 in the demo (3.1/10), while CBS ran second in total viewers (8.4 million). »

30 May 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Is Fame the next American Idol? Hoping to generate some summer ratings heat, NBC's new talent-reality show plowed over mostly repeats on rival networks in its two-hour Wednesday debut. Fame won the 8-10 p.m. slot with a 4.5 rating/13 share in the key 18-49 demographic and 10.6 million total viewers, according to figures from Nielsen Media Research. The show dispatched competitors as various as CBS' Funny Flubs & Screw Ups (2.7/9, 9.8 million viewers) and repeats of ABC's The George Lopez Show (3.4/9, 8.1 million) and Fox's The Bernie Mac Show (3.2/9, 7.1 million). »

ABC has 'Hope'; WB 'Fearless'

12 May 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

ABC was plotting an extensive makeover of its primetime lineup during the weekend, while the WB Network was looking at more modest changes to accommodate an eclectic batch of new series. Both networks will present their 2003-04 lineups to advertisers Tuesday in New York. On the comedy side, ABC has picked up the Faith Ford-Kelly Ripa starrer Hope and Faith, from Touchstone TV and Industry Entertainment; It's All Relative, from Paramount Network TV/Touchstone TV/Storyline Entertainment; The Big House (previously the untitled Kevin Hart project) from 20th Century Fox TV/Imagine TV; and the 20th TV/Brad Grey TV untitled Tom Hertz sitcom for midseason. Sources said ABC was planning to revive its TGIF family-friendly branding initiative for its Friday night lineup, with some new additions anchored by returning comedies George Lopez and Life With Bonnie. There also was talk that the Wonderful World of Disney telefilm showcase would move from the Sunday 7-9 p.m. berth, possibly to Saturday. And at long last the jury has returned on The Practice. David E. Kelley's Emmy-winning drama has been picked up for an eighth season after lengthy negotiations between the network and 20th Century Fox TV. Sources said the deal calls for the network to cut the show's license fee by at least half -- ABC had been paying an estimated $6.5 million per episode -- but the show is guaranteed a return to its old Sunday 10 p.m. time slot after suffering through a disastrous move to Monday 9 p.m. in late January. Also making the cut is the Dick Wolf remake of Dragnet, which inherited Practice's Sunday 10 p.m. slot for its debut but is now believed to be headed to a tougher neighborhood, Saturday 10 p.m. »
