Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip review: “A bright and loud film.”

18 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip review: The fourth Chipmunks movie gives us much of the same. Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip review

Sometimes it can be really healthy to hate a film. It makes your blood boil, you curse the hours wasted, and with every passing minute you notice more and more things wrong with the feature. By the time it’s finished you have a pretty well formed rant of absolutely everything that is wrong. So it can sometimes be disappointing when a film you expected to hate doesn’t quite infuriate you. This isn’t to say that Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip can be considered good, or even enjoyable, but at least it doesn’t completely ruin your day.

In this inexplicable fourth instalment, Alvin (Justin Long), Simon (Matthew Gray Gubler), and Theodore (Jesse McCartney) find themselves thrust out of the »

This week’s 36-minute, low-fi episode is not edited by our trusty director Jason Averett — and therefore contains a whole lot of mess about Beyoncé’s “Formation,” the etiquette of Patti Labelle and Aretha Franklin and the proper pronunciation of the word “me” when it appears in an N’Sync jam.

CBS Uses Super Bowl 50 For Streaming Boost, ‘Good Wife’ Shock

8 February 2016 12:31 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS used last night’s Super Bowl to get down to business.

Where most TV networks hosting the game tend to focus heavily on the promotion of individual shows and goose interest in big-bet programs that are slated for release in coming weeks, CBS used its broadcast of Super Bowl 50 to expand viewers’ notions of what a TV network does and also drop a little surprise.

The network had approximately five minutes of time to promote its own stuff, noted George Schweitzer, president of marketing at CBS, in an interview. A decent chunk of that allotment — three different promotions — was used to push the notion to viewers of watching the company’s TV programs in new ways. CBS ran a sultry promo for its “All Access” subscription-on-demand service; an ad for Showtime’s streaming service (with music by Sia); and an overall “brand” spot telling the audience that CBS is available “now, »

Jennifer Lopez Will Have to Magically Find More Time in Her Schedule for Shades of Blue Season 2

5 February 2016 3:14 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

On top of tons more Dick Wolf, NBC is sticking to its guns — J.Lo's guns, that is. The network has renewed Jennifer Lopez's surprisingly good cop show Shades of Blue for season two, which means somehow, some way, the superhuman formerly known as Jenny from the Block will have to fit more cop corruption into her already-busy schedule of American Idol, a Las Vegas residency, red-carpet domination, and countless other boss things the world will never know about. And you thought TV would be without its favorite Puerto Rican queen post-Idol, ha! (If they decide to kill her off, this post never happened.) »

NBC Renews Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Shades of Blue’ for Season 2

5 February 2016 2:45 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC has picked up a second season of Jennifer Lopez’s cop drama “Shades of Blue,” Variety has learned.

Though the early renewal comes right after the show’s lowest ratings came in for its fifth episode last night, the pickup comes as no surprise, given Lopez’s star power and “Shades of Blue” still-strong performance as one of NBC’s biggest debuts in recent years.

In its first three telecasts, “Shades of Blue” averaged a 2.5 rating in 18-49 and 11.2 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen’s “live+3” estimates, standing as one of the most time-shifted programs on television during this time. Thanks in part to no competition from ABC’s “How to Get Away With Murder,” “Shades” gave NBC its first Thursday-at-10 wins with in-season regular programming over original competition on ABC and CBS since March 2010 in the demo and since March 2008 in total viewers.

American Idol Recap: Final Judgement

5 February 2016 12:56 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This week's episode is called Final Judgment, which is a fitting and hilarious capper to our endless and heavy Hollywood Week experience. You know the drill by now: The remaining 51 hopefuls must give a performance for a crowd, who probably didn't realize how long a show they signed up to watch. And then, one by one, each contestant walks four miles toward our judges to find out whether they've made the top 24. Along the way, we say good-bye to some people we've never met and firm up our Fantasy Idol teams. We're getting somewhere … almost.I could pad this out, because God knows American Idol does, but I don't want to. Tell you what: Let me just reveal who made it, what I think about them, and then we'll all get out of here and start our Super Bowl weekend. Sound good? Okay, I can't hear you. Stephany »

American Idol: Season 15 Ratings (Thursdays)

5 February 2016 12:17 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

This season, there's no worries of American Idol being cancelled. Fox has already decided that this will be the last season. The original hosts are expected to return at some point. Will millions of viewers? Stay tuned.

Hosted by Ryan Seacrest, American Idol will air twice a week for part of the season, on Wednesday and Thursday nights. Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez, and Keith Urban return to the judge's table.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

Did Supernatural Find Its Spinoff? Did iZombie Get You Hot? Which Gilmore Return Do You Not Want? 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 Gilmore Girls, American Crime, Supernatural and Younger!

1 | If Undateable gets renewed for Season 4, would it be too much to ask for “TV’s Scott Foley” to pop-in every week? Also, what joke from the finale’s East Coast airing had to be dropped from the West Coast staging “for legal reasons” (as Bill Lawrence shared on Periscope)?

I will miss 'American Idol's hilariously dorky Top 24 dance montages most of all

5 February 2016 10:26 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Now that American Idol is headlong into its "final" season (until the whole thing is rebooted as Idol Redux: America Strikes Back in 2022), I realize what I'll miss most about this white-bread karaoke pageant: the unbelievably awkward montages of Top 24 contestants dancing as Ryan Seacrest reads their names. Last night's Top 24 reveal didn't feature that classic sequence, which has been a mainstay of the series since the first few seasons. And that is a shame. Why? Because Idol is a dork circus and everyone deserves a chance to stand in the center ring and perform the pony for America's vote.  In case you're unfamiliar with this gorgeous, ludicrously unflattering dance sequence, here is part of 2009's medley. Please watch in fear as Kris Allen goes full Caucasian with his startling "spank that ass" choreo. It's like he's foreshadowing the against-all-odds charisma that will win him the whole thing.

Ratings: CBS’ ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Takes Big Bite Out of Competition

5 February 2016 9:37 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” back in originals for the first time in three weeks, a pair of new series in Thursday’s opening hour — NBC’s “You, Me and the Apocalypse” and CW’s “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” — fell off last night, while NBC’s 10 p.m. cop drama “Shades of Blue” dipped in its fifth week.

The night featured a Democratic debate on MSNBC, but the event didn’t make big enough ratings noise to meaningfully impact the evening’s entertainment programs. In Nielsen’s metered-market overnights, the Hillary Clinton-Bernie Sanders debate from New Hampshire averaged a 3.3 household rating — less than half what a Donald Trump-less Republican debate did one week earlier on Fox News Channel (8.4) and the lowest of this election cycle for either party.

Looking at the night’s broadcast programs, “The Big Bang Theory” (3.7 rating/13 share in adults 18-49, 15.2 million »
