'Grey's Anatomy' still has it after all these years when it comes to goodbyes

24 April 2015 7:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few thoughts on last night's momentous "Grey's Anatomy" coming up just as soon as the second chair cello boy doesn't count... Whenever I write or tweet about "Grey's Anatomy" — as I did last night, upon seeing the news about the show killing off Derek — inevitably some clever person feels the need to ask, "Is that still on?" Yes, "Grey's" is an old show — it debuted in the same TV season as "Lost," "Veronica Mars," "House," "Desperate Housewives" and a whole lot of others that didn't last nearly as long as this series' 11 seasons and counting — but it still remains one of ABC's most successful dramas, and one of the higher-rated dramas on TV, period. It's going to be around as long as Shonda Rhimes wants it to be. And though I stopped watching a couple of years ago more due to time constraints than anything the "Grey's" itself did, »

14 Things We Learned During the Ash vs Evil Dead Conference Call

23 April 2015 10:04 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This week, production began on the highly anticipated upcoming Starz series, Ash vs Evil Dead, which has creators Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell reuniting, this time in New Zealand, to bring fans a new iteration of everyone’s favorite chainsaw-wielding anti-hero.

Daily Dead had the opportunity to take part in a very special conference call with the trio about what we can expect from the first 10-episode season (and beyond), how Ash vs Evil Dead will fit into the overall Evil Dead universe, input into some of the new characters we’ll be meeting along the way and much, much more.

Ash vs Evil Dead will definitely be hardline horror but expect some quintessential Evil Dead comedy to show up from time to time: According to Raimi, Ash vs Evil Dead is definitely going to be an intense horror experience but when you’re working with someone like »

Empire preview: get ready for the Cookie and Lucious show

23 April 2015 3:39 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

With record-breaking audiences in the Us, guests including Snoop Dogg, musical input from Timbaland and some outlandish plots, the hip-hop drama lives up to its reputation as a ‘black Dynasty’

It is fair to say that Empire’s debut was nothing short of spectacular. Launched in January on Fox in the States (and now launching on 28 April on E4 in the UK), it has become the fastest-growing show in a decade, surpassing big-rating network hits such as Desperate Housewives, House and Lost, with ratings increasing every week until its final episode hit 23 million viewers: the highest figure for the finale of a show’s debut season since Grey’s Anatomy in 2005. No wonder the show was described by its creator Lee Daniels as a “black Dynasty”.

But it’s not all about the numbers: Empire is a wild mix of high drama and addictive storytelling set in the world of Empire Entertainment, »

Written by veteran TV producer/writer David Flebotte (Desperate Housewives), the film follows Ted Morgan (Sean William-Scott), a “down-on-his-luck average joe who chooses to end his life but is first compelled to return home for one last time and revisit all the horrible people from his past.”

12 Hit Us TV Shows You Never Knew Doctor Who Actors Were In

9 April 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

ABC

Establishing yourself as a formidable small screen force to reckoned with in Britain is easier said than done but making a name for yourself within the competitive realms of the Us televisual market is perhaps an even more impressive feat.

With Doctor Who‘s ever growing global success (it currently has an estimated international audience of over 70 million viewers!), it’s no surprise that the majority of its stars are quick to launch their careers across the pond when the time comes for them to bid the Tardis adieu.

The world’s longest running sci-fi show is constantly breaking ratings records on BBC America so its amicable alumni are fortunate enough to be relativity known across the Atlantic even before they’ve attempted to leave their mark on the reputable realms of Hollywood. That’s the power of Doctor Who for you!

Most of the time, their efforts pay off. »

‘Woman in Gold’ and the Politics of Returning Nazi-Looted Art (Listen)

4 April 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Woman in Gold,” opening in theaters this weekend, depicts the politics and legal hurdles faced by Austrian Jewish immigrant Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren) and Los Angeles trial lawyer Randy Schoenberg (Ryan Reynolds) as they try to secure the return of Altmann’s family-owned Gustav Klimt painting looted by the Nazis.

The painting, depicting Altmann’s aunt Adele Bloch-Bauer, had become a famous museum attraction in Vienna — what some had called that country’s Mona Lisa.

Altmann and Schoenberg won back the painting, as well as other Klimt works taken by the Nazis during their occupation, but that was after an eight-year effort that went all the way to the Supreme Court and the gamble of an arbitration proceeding in Austria.

Schoenberg tells Variety‘s “PopPolitics” on SiriusXM, however, that the courtroom wrangling to win the return of Nazi-looted art continues, with an estimated 100,000 works of art still at issue, many missing. »

Ash Vs. The Evil Dead Releases Teaser Trailer That’s All Tease

2 April 2015 5:50 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Starz has had some serious luck with original programming, releasing some of the best shows around over the last few years, but they are about to really test their luck, and they finally have a glimmer of something to pique your interest.

Ash vs. The Evil Dead will find Bruce Campbell reprising his role as Ash, and if that isn’t enough to count as poking the dragon that is the legion of Evil Dead fans out there, the show is apparently going to play along with reality’s timeline and have us jump back into Ash’s life thirty years later. According to the official word, Ash, chainsaw-hand… in hand, has just been avoiding everything he can possibly avoid, hoping that all his problems are behind him. That’s apparently worked to some degree for a long time, but it couldn’t last forever.

Take a look below, and start picking a side now. »

Doctor Who 10 years on: Where are the class of 2005 now?

23 March 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The world of Doctor Who has changed greatly in the space of just 10 years. The cast and crew have almost completely been replaced since 2005, including a number of new actors to play the errant Time Lord and his companions.

But what has happened to the class of '05? Where are Rose and Mickey now? What is the writer of 'Dalek' up to? And where can you see more work from the director of 'Rose'?

Here it is then, your guide to the main players of Doctor Who series one.

The Cast

After his three-month on-screen stint as the Doctor, Christopher Eccleston's career continued in much the same vein, taking in theatre, interesting television roles and the odd blockbuster.

Post-2005, the Northern actor went Stateside to take on the role of invisible man Claude in the Us series Heroes. From there, he popped up in a very amusing Doctor Who-esque cameo as Dr. »

From Fortitude to Indian Summers, why TV bosses take a new ratings view

22 March 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Changing viewing trends mean overnight figures no longer signal a hit or miss

How many viewers makes a hit? If it is a golden age for TV drama, then it is increasingly difficult for the casual observer to work out which one is shining brightest – if at all.

It was all about the overnights a decade ago, an era when Desperate Housewives began on Channel 4 with more than 4 million viewers and Christopher Eccleston made his debut in Doctor Who with an audience of 10 million on BBC1.
