In the CBS hitcom’s Nov. 6 episode, “The Prom Equivalency,” the gang recreates a high school prom on the roof of the guys’ apartment building. But as with any prom, jitters are to be had — namely by Sheldon, who feels pressure to participate in all the typical romantic traditions.

Hey, baby girls!
Shirtless wonder Shemar Moore has been acting professionally for nearly 20 years but seems to have struck gold with Criminal Minds. ETonline caught up with the heartthrob to talk about the success of the CBS drama, currently in its 10th season.
"I'm lucky, blessed, humbled and proud by it," he says. "It's really to the fans. They found, they stuck with us, they scream for us and they're there every week.
"Our writers come through with that twisted material," he adds. "I come in and kick down doors [and] flirt with my baby girl. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

This year’s World Series matchup between the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals didn’t generate much heat early, but audiences tuned in to the winner-take-all Game 7 on Wednesday, as Fox dominated the ratings race with some of its best non-nfl numbers in recent years.
In Nielsen’s metered-market overnights, the San Francisco Giants’ 3-2 victory to clinch their third World Series title in five years averaged a big 15.2 household rating/24 share — up 70% from Tuesday’s 8.9/14 for Game 6. The most recent Game 7 prior to this year had been in 2011, when the St. Louis Cardinals-Texas Rangers matchup produced a 16.2/28 in the overnights (the share was noticeably higher because the game was played on a Friday, when fewer people are watching television).
Fox needed a big Game 7 to avoid this becoming the lowest-rated World Series on record. In the overnights, this year’s San Francisco-Kansas City series averaged a »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, October 29, 2014. A thrilling Game 7 of the World Series led Fox to a Wednesday night ratings win as dominant as Madison Bumgarner's pitching performance in relief, while "Black-ish" was up from last week and "The Mysteries of Laura" continued to slip. For the night, Fox averaged a 5.5 rating among adults 18-49 and 20.19 million viewers overall. ABC was a very distant second (2.2, 7.06 million), followed by CBS (2.0, 8.87 million) and NBC (1.0, 5.41 million). The CW (0.8, 2.32 million) was in fifth, though the exact numbers may change because the network's lineup was pre-empted in Chicago by the Bulls' thumping of the Knicks. (For that matter, Fox's numbers should change substantially once national ratings come in, but will still be way above anyone else's.) 8 p.m. -- Fox easily won the hour with the early innings of the Giants' win over the Royals, with a 5.5 rating and 20.49 million viewers. CBS was in second »

CBS’ hit Criminal Minds is one of the creepiest dramas on television. For the past decade, the FBI’s Behavior Analysis Unit has matched wits with entertainment’s most twisted unsubs “unknown subjects.” As the team profiles and hunts down the depraved and despicable villains, the action is set against the most riveting soundtrack on television. The show’s award-winning composers, brothers Steffan and Marc Fantini (along with composing partner Scott Gordon), create the disturbing music that sets the show’s dark mood. Marc and Steffan, what is your background in music? Marc: Our musical background started in recording: rock, pop and songwriting. My … Continue reading →

Criminal Minds has had many, many scarier episodes than "Boxed In" -- it wouldn't even rank in the top 15 or maybe even 20 -- but what makes this one stand out is that it's about a very real fear parents have on Halloween. When their kids go out trick-or-treating, they expect them to come home. In this case, they do, but almost a full year later.
Series star Thomas Gibson once again stepped behind the camera, directed his third episode of the series ("All That Remains" and "Gabby" are the previous two). While the episodes Matthew Gray Gubler directs tend to be on the creepy side, the ones Gibson directs tend to involve families, specifically abducted children. »

Darlene Love will sing "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” on Letterman for a 29th time, and that’s it Love, who has been singing the Christmas classic every year on Letterman’s "Late Night" and "The Late Show" since 1986, says she will retire the holiday tradition after this year, opting not to continue it on another late-night show. "They never told me not to, but it was an unspoken thing. They couldn't ask me not to sing 'Christmas (Baby)' on another show, but after 10 years, then 15 years, of doing this one song on this one show, I felt I had an obligation to be true to them," she tells Billboard. Plus: Watch Love sing “Christmas” in 1986 and in 2013.

ABC is a turnaround story in the making. CBS went four-for-four with pickups for its new fall series. Fox is giving thanks for “Gotham.” And NBC is enjoying its bench strength with dramas, even if comedy remains a harder nut to crack.
Overall, the broadcast nets have gotten off to a good start this season, with a few frosh series, notably ABC’s “Black-ish” and “How to Get Away With Murder,” and CBS’ “Scorpion,” standing out from the pack. ABC likes “Black-ish” so much that last week it tacked on two more episodes, lifting its order to 24. The Alphabet also handed out additional episodes for comedy “The Goldbergs” and six other shows.
In something of a fall rarity, almost all of the new series survived their first month — a far cry from last year, when CBS’ “We Are Men,” ABC’s “Lucky 7” and NBC’s “Ironside” all had fallen with the leaves. »

Opening ABC’s night, a Halloween special thing did 3.8 mil/1.1, improving on the 3 mil/1.0 that Selfie/the since-snuffed Manhattan Love Story most recently averaged. And at 10 pm, Forever (5 mil/1.1) was down a tenth.

Halloween is an occasion oft mutually enjoyed by both parents and their kids, so it was fitting that as Thomas Gibson directed tonight’s episode of Criminal Minds (CBS, 9/8c), his 12-year-old son was among the guest cast.
TVLine invited Gibson to reflect on his latest turn behind the camera and the “treat” of it being a family affair, as well as share the “trick” to conjuring a compellingly creepy episode. Plus: How will Rossi help Hotch recover from a romantic setback?

The net also got a lengthy NFL overrun on Sunday, with the conclusion of the Indianapolis-Pittsburgh game averaging a 7.1/24 in 18-49 and 23.25 million total viewers in primetime’s opening hour.
CBS finished on top for the week in 18-49 (tied with Fox) as well as adults 25-54 and total viewers, marking the first time a network has won a week in total viewers opposite five games of the World Series.

“Do you like scary movies?” If this line from Wes Craven’s Scream still sends a shiver down your spine, then perhaps you should prepare to be creeped out by more cryptic phone calls, as MTV has officially put in a series order for their Scream reboot.
MTV made the announcement via Twitter, using blood-splattered emojis to get the message across, in addition to a listed phone number. If you call the number, a man imitating Roger L. Jackson’s chilling vocal cords says, “Do you like scary TV? Scream is coming to MTV October 2015.”
The first season of the show will consist of 10 episodes and it is believed that the franchise’s iconic Ghostface outfit will not be worn by any killers early on, based on this statement made by R.J. Torbert of Fun World (the official rights-holder and manufacturer of the Ghostface costume) in an interview with Ghostface. »
