Ratings: Fox’s ‘Backstrom’ Off to Decent Start Thursday

23 January 2015 9:05 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Update: In updated nationals from Nielsen released Friday afternoon, Fox’s “American Idol” picked up a tenth (2.8/9 in 18-49, 10.65 million viewers overall) but newcomer “Backstrom” gave one back (1.9/6 in 18-49, 7.98 million viewers overall).

At CBS, both “Mom” (2.4/8 in 18-49, 11.05 million viewers overall) and “Two and a Half Men” (2.2/7 in 18-49, 9.31 million viewers overall) were revised downward by a tenth.

NBC’s finale of “Bad Judge” also came down a tenth (0.7/2 in 18-49, 2.86 million viewers overall), but CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” edged up (0.8/2 in 18-49, 1.64 million viewers overall) to avoid matching its series low.


Fox drama “Backstrom” opened to credible numbers on Thursday behind “American Idol” but may have a tough time staying at this level in coming weeks when ABC’s “Scandal” and then NBC’s “The Blacklist” move into its timeslot.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, the Rainn Wilson-fronted “Backstrom” averaged a 2.0 rating/6 share in »

23 January 2015 8:56 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

NBC’s “Bad Judge” and “A-to-z” see slight rises in still-unimpressive finales

American Idol” paired with the Rainn Wilson crimedy “Backstrom” debut on Thursday, handing Fox a ratings victory in the key 18-49 demographic.

CBS topped the night in total viewers, with a “Big Bang Theory” repeat boasting a primetime-best 11.6 million. For NBC, while its entire lineup ticked up slightly, “Bad Judge” and “A-to-z” closed their seasons — and series — with soft finale numbers.

Welcome to Hollyweed: Why TV Is Going to Pot

23 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“It’s sort of like the new Gold Rush,” truTV’s president and head of programming Chris Linn tells TheWrap

The television industry is catching up with film and learning that pot sells in Hollywood. As more states join the legal marijuana movement and the drug becomes less taboo in the country, entertainment industry insiders say interest in weed-related storylines is at an all-time high.

Showtime series “Shameless,” for instance, which follows Chicago’s dysfunctional Gallagher family and stars William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum, will embark on a major weed arc later this year. The network is also responsible »

Weekly Ratings: NFL Playoffs, ‘NCIS’ Lift CBS to Easy Victory

22 January 2015 6:11 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS rode pro football’s Afc Championship and the season’s most-watched episode of “NCIS” to the biggest weekly ratings victory for any network this season — well, at least until NBC airs the Super Bowl in a couple of weeks.

The New England Patriots-Indianapolis Colts averaged a big 13.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 42.14 million viewers overall to stand as the season’s most-watched primetime telecast, but the 45-7 outcome resulted in lower tune in in the fourth quarter. That in turn somewhat dampened the net’s special post-football episode of “Scorpion,” which matched the rookie hit’s season high in adults 18-49 but didn’t come close to a high in total viewers (12.29 million on Sunday vs. 13.90 million for its series premiere).

No. 2 for the week was the first ever College Football Playoff championship game on Espn between Ohio State and Oregon, which on Monday set cable records in both »

Six Takeaways From TCA

21 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amid the small talk and the spin, there are insights to be gained by sitting through 14 straight days of executive Q&As and panels. It’s like binge-watching for journalists. The twice-yearly Television Critics Assn. press tour is a marathon of presentations, hobnobbing and cocktail parties that, all snarking aside, remains a good way to check the industry’s creative pulse. The six key themes:

Diversity Is Good for Business 

“Television that looks like America” has been talked about for years, but never realized in primetime on the scale of the 2014-15 season. Eddie Huang of ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat” observed: “I don’t think you guys have seen a TCA with this many Asian faces onstage in a long time.”

The generational transition was made clear in sessions with James Corden, CBS’ new “Late Late Show” host, and Larry Wilmore, days before he took the »

Farewell Tours: Departing Series Underscore TV’s Muscle

20 January 2015 8:31 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Television is enjoying a muscular moment.

By any measure, there’s consensus that this is a golden age of episodic storytelling. In subjects, formats and delivery systems, TV is unrestrained by past conventions, thanks to the dizzying number of linear and digital outlets looking to serve discreet audiences with distinctive shows.

Intense competition — or what FX Networks’ John Landgraf called “just literally insane” — drives even those at the top to think bigger and bolder. Showtime Networks chief David Nevins wishes he had Amazon’s “Transparent” on his air. That’s good news for the writers who will pitch him projects in the coming months.

In this environment, the twice-yearly Television Critics Assn. press tour hosted by the major broadcast, cable and now digital networks is in some ways an anachronism and in other ways more vital than ever. Viewers need all the help they can get navigating the tidal wave of new series. »

A weekly feature in which we spotlight shining stars

The Performer | Amy Poehler

The Episodes | “2017”/”Ron and Jammy”

The Airdate | January 13, 2015

The Performance | In the first two episodes of Parks‘ final season, Leslie finds herself going up against friend-turned-foe Ron Swanson. The problem? Ron’s competing against Leslie to obtain a whole lotta land. The other problem? Leslie has no money to offer the (already) wealthy Newports, making her chances of outbidding Ron fairly microscopic.

Chuck Lorre talks Two and a Half Men finale and praises Charlie Sheen

16 January 2015 1:57 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Next month Two and a Half Men will finish after 12 seasons and there has been speculation that Charlie Sheen will return for the finale, having been fired from the show four years ago for after being outspoken about the show’s creator Chuck Lorre and the studio Warner Bros.

During a recent Q&A, Lorre was asked about Sheen returning, dodging the question by stating that: “I think we’re going to have a finale that you’re going to be very pleased with. That’s all I’m going to say about it.”

Lorre went on to praise Charlie Sheen’s work before his exit from the show, and talked about the finale honouring Sheen’s contribution:

“It would be inappropriate to not acknowledge the extraordinary success we had with Charlie, and how grateful I am — we all are – for his contributions. There is nothing but great feelings for »

16 January 2015 11:43 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Is it the acting? The jokes? Kaley Cuoco's hair? What is it about CBS' Big Bang Theory that makes it so phenomenally popular and TV's highest-rated comedy? The cast of the show—along with the casts of Two and a Half Men, Mike & Molly and Mom—attempted to explain why their sitcoms were so popular to an assembly of TV critics at Warner Bros.
