NBC and CBS were the season’s ratings winners in key demo categories, and Fox had the hottest new show in years, but the best story of the 2014-15 television season just might have belonged to ABC.
The Alphabet emerged as the only major network to draw a larger young-adult audience this season than last, thanks in large part to a strong rookie class that included hits “How to Get Away With Murder” and “Black-ish” as well as other solid newcomers like “Fresh Off the Boat” and “Secrets and Lies.” “The Goldbergs” blossomed in in its second year, while veterans like “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal,” “Modern Family” and “Shark Tank” also continued to produce.
CBS introduced new drama hit “Scorpion” and renewed four other first-year shows, while Fox launched megahit “Empire” and solid newcomer “Gotham” and the CW discovered its biggest hit to date, “The Flash.” NBC, on the other hand, »

Lester Holt notched an exclusive interview with the bystander who captured video of a South Carolina police officer shooting Walter Scott and even anchored NBC’s “Nightly News” from a seat in a helicopter. What does the guy have to do to get a little promotional support from the network he’s helped in the tightest of pinches?
NBC News was so enamored of Brian Williams up until a few months ago that it devised a royal promotional campaign for him last fall using actor Michael Douglas in voice-overs (that effort has been removed from the air in light of Williams’ acknowledgement he falsified an account of a 2003 trip to Iraq, an admission that got him a six-month suspension). If Holt is getting similar treatment, NBC News won’t say. Reps for NBC News declined to respond to queries about promotions for the Holt-led “Nightly News.”

The term “stick to your knitting” is something of a double-edged sword for CBS — reflecting the network’s enviable stability, but also evoking images of the heavy granny constituency that watches “Blue Bloods,” when media buyers have a vampiric thirst for youth. Given that, the one major flyer the network is taking — ordering “Supergirl,” a series that would be a more natural fit for its younger sibling the CW — becomes the linchpin of its hopes for fall, along with the launch of Stephen Colbert’s turn in the “Late Show” chair.
Those were, frankly, the most exciting moments in an upfront presentation touting a lineup otherwise immersed in spinoffs. To its credit, CBS knows how to put on a show, and after a “Big Bang Theory”-inspired gag with sales chief Jo Ann Ross, Colbert came on to plug his arrival, engaging in a bit of extended shtick with CBS CEO Leslie Moonves. »

The 49-year-old star was axed from the show because of his erratic antics and public ranting about showrunner Chuck Lorre in 2011 and he now knows he behaved wrongly and should have been “more humble”.
Asked if he regrets how his time on the show ended, he said: “Yeah, I should have been a little more humble, more regretful, shouldn’t have attacked them like I did and I probably should have begged for my job back
“Beg is a colour I don’t wear well. I probably should have requested my job back.
“I think that what went down was fixable, and I made it irreparable.”
Charlie then went on to star in ‘Anger Management’ and enjoyed work on the 100-episode FX show.
He told ‘Extra': “It was an environment of compassion, of creativity of love… »

Is CBS trying to freshen up its image?
At its upfronts presentation to advertisers, the most-watched network announced it's finally doing away with the aging "CSI" after 15 years. And the highest-profile new series on the fall docket is the younger-skewing "Supergirl."

Their new shows are: the comedy "Angel From Hell" with Jane Lynch as a guardian angel; medical drama "Code Black"; family comedy "Life in Pieces"; the movie adaptation "Limitless," featuring guest appearances by Bradley Cooper; and "Supergirl."
Here's the new lineup for CBS:

The third season release of Major Crimes is hitting May 26th, and I’ve got your opportunity to win one of three copies of the DVD!
The show, a spin-off of The Closer, has been doing well since it premiered, and the third season was the #3 scripted drama on basic cable.
Moreover, despite not kicking off all that well, it’s a show that has grown into itself, and found a more solid base of existence. The quality has grown in many respects, and the cases were far more interesting in the third season.
Mary McDonnell seems more comfortable, due in large part to the writing giving her a broader base of character to work with.
If you aren’t caught up, now is the perfect chance to get ready for the fourth season.

“The Big Bang Theory” has consistently bucked trends, including the one that would suggest a comedy in its eighth season might begin to grow tired and stale. Instead, the show has kept clicking on all cylinders, moving the characters forward while continuing to revel in scientific jargon and sly pop-culture savvy. That said, there’s a reason why the writers have kept the various romantic relationships from advancing too rapidly – presumably some of them watched “Friends” – which perhaps explains why the season finale (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched) essentially just kicked more than one can down the road.
The episode opened with Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and his long-suffering girlfriend Amy (Mayim Bialik) grappling with their very different ideas about commitment: She wants to talk about what it means that they’ve been “together,” such as it is, for five years, while he wants to talk about whether »
