“I’m excited to return to my ‘Heroes’ roots,” said Oka, who was nominated for both an Emmy and a Golden Globe for his role. “Hiro Nakamura was such an inspirational role to play, and I’m hoping the fans will enjoy seeing him back on TV.”

Admit it, millennials: When the news broke Tuesday that FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully would be returning to the Fox network for a six-episode reboot of "The X-Files," many of you said, "Who are Mulder and Scully?" After all, the show has been off the air for 13 years. Since then, Gillian Anderson (Scully) moved to England and did period dramas, while David Duchovny (Mulder) became that creepy old lech on Showtime's "Californication," and "X-Files" creator Chris Carter went Mia and was apparently abducted by aliens.
Still, even if "The X-Files," its stars, and its creator haven't been pinging the cultural radar much in recent years, the return of the show with its original cast and showrunner on board is a huge deal. Much of what we now take for granted in pop culture -- especially on TV and online -- owes a tremendous debt to the 1993-2002 sci-fi drama series. »

The first Wednesday of the year without Fox’s dominant “Empire” didn’t seem to free up viewers of other shows, as ABC’s “Modern Family” and NBC’s “Law & Order: Svu” matched their lowest scores of the season. The combo of “Survivor” and “Criminal Minds” lifted CBS to victory, though the jury remains out on the net’s 10 p.m. newcomer “CSI: Cyber,” which was edged out in the young-adults demo by NBC’s “Chicago Pd.”
Fox’s “American Idol,” meanwhile, seemed to miss skedmate “Empire,” as its first Wednesday installment of the season without the drama airing behind it delivered easily the show’s lowest scores on the night this season.
Of note in latenight, meanwhile, it was more of the same in the early going of “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” with the CBS newcomer faring better than NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers” in households (1.2 rating vs. »

With Empire out of the picture, CBS swiped the first Wednesday win from Fox since the top of 2015. The trio of Survivor (2.2 rating adults 18-49), Criminal Minds (2.0 adults) and CSI: Cyber (1.4 adults) all held steady with their latest showings. Over on Fox, American Idol was in line with last week's two-hour live outing on Thursday — averaging a 1.7 rating among adults 18-49. But that marked a steep drop from its last one-hour Wednesday effort, when it pulled a 2.4 rating partnered with Empire. See more 41 Broadcast

Who stood to inherit Empire‘s riches, in the wake of the well-watched Fox behemoth signing off? Would you believe, almost no one?

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, March 25, 2015. The departure of "Empire" from the Wednesday landscape didn't drive audiences back to its 9 p.m. competition, but the spring juggernaut's absence did allow "Survivor" to carry CBS to victory among young viewers, while "Criminal Minds" led overall. "Criminal Minds" actually slipped slightly from its last original airing opposite "Empire," as did "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "Modern Family," which returned from a couple weeks away to a big drops. On the positive side, The CW's "Arrow" rose from last week, but didn't help "Supernatural." Let's get to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 1.9 rating for Wednesday night, tops in the key demographic. ABC and Fox were a close second with 1.7 key demo ratings. NBC's 1.3 key demo rating was good for fourth, followed by the 0.9 key demo rating for The CW. Overall, CBS averaged an estimated 9.15 million viewers and a 5.6 rating/10 share for Wednesday primetime. »

The clock is ticking in Criminal Minds' "Rock Creek Park" to get a congressman's wife back alive, but it's up to the Bau to figure out just who's responsible for the kidnapping while also trying to find her.
This episode almost seems to be one of those cases where having a recognizable actor gives away the ending, or in this instance, part of it. Tess Harper plays the congressman's mother, and it's impossible to imagine that they would cast her without giving her scenes like her last two. That does make for a predictable episode and because I watch many procedural dramas, (and have for years), I also saw the "twist" at the end.
Recently, CBS delivered the new,official synopsis/spoilers for their upcoming "Criminal Minds" episode 19 of season 10. The episode is entitled, "Beyond Borders," and it turns out that we're going to see some very intriguing and dramatic stuff go down as family gets abducted in Barbados, prompting the Bau squad to go check it out, and more. In the new, 19th episode press release: When A Vacationing Family Is Abducted In Barbados, The Bau Works With The FBI's International Unit To Find Them. Press release number 2: When a family of four is abducted while on vacation in Barbados, the Bau is going to get called to assist Unit Chief Jack Garrett (Sinise) and his International Unit on their investigation.

The season finale of Fox’s monster rookie drama “Empire” came within a tick of catching AMC’s “The Walking Dead” as primetime’s biggest draw among young adults last week but it was enough to put the network on top.
Fox won outright in adults 18-49 for the first time in two months, averaging a 1.8 rating/6 share in Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” estimates for the week of March 16-22. It was followed by the closely bunched CBS (1.5/5), NBC (1.4/5) and ABC (1.4/4).
CBS and Fox tied for the lead among adults 25-54 (2.0/7) while the Eye won easily in total viewers (7.2 million to 6.2 million for runner-up ABC).
At Fox, “Empire” capped its amazing first season by continuing its streak of growing audience with each episode since its Jan. 7 premiere and standing as the week’s most-watched show for the first time. It actually claimed the top two spots because Fox broke »

I'm reaching the point in the series where the episodes are starting to give me stress dreams. Fresh off the third installment, I went into "Part 4" thinking, Okay, Danny's finally got a handle on things. His siblings are dicks, but he's basically a good guy who just wants to start anew in the comfort of his loved ones. Well, out of nowhere, three insane things happen that derail that train of thought: First, Papa Ray does what the doctor said was nearly impossible, making the most flawless and speedy of recoveries (last episode he didn't really know what a pen was; now he's grumpy and kind of tired); second, this show jumps from 10 percent Criminal Minds to 50 percent, and, if you were thinking Juanita Doe's accident was linked to Danny, you were correct; and third, for the majority of this episode, almost everybody has taken a 180 »

“Community” out-of-control community college, Greendale, could have always used some taming, and it looks like the school has finally found the person for the job. Paget Brewster joins the show in its sixth season as a no-nonsense adviser, looking to turn the school around. Brewster, who previously starred in “Criminal Minds,” spoke with Variety about joining the tight-knit cast, working with showrunner Dan Harmon and the advice castmember Gillian Jacobs gave her.
How did it feel to join “Community”?
It’s exhilarating. It’s also scary. The cast has had 5 years together. I want to do right by the scripts and make them happy that I’m here. And I’m just hoping the fans accept me. As a fan, I’ve watched shows when I’m like, “Who’s this? I just want my friends. I don’t want this new person.” Hopefully they’ll warm to me if »

In Nielsen’s Live+3 estimates, which include three days of time-shifted viewing, Sunday’s 10 p.m. premiere of “The Royals” averaged 2.19 million viewers, including 1.04 million adults 18-49 (0.82 rating). In both categories, it stood as the week’s No. 15 original scripted cable telecast.
“Royals” ranks as the calendar year’s No. 2-rated series premiere in key women demos, behind only AMC’s “Better Call Saul.”
E! has aired some acquired scripted programming over the years, including repeats of “Sex and the City” and “Absolutely Fabulous,” but “The Royals” represents its first original scripted program. Created by Mark Schwahn, the hourlong drama centered on a fictional modern-day royal family features a cast that includes Elizabeth Hurley and Vincent Regan as Queen Helena and King Simon.

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, March 18, 2015. As expected, Fox's "Empire" couldn't complete its first season without doing what it does best: Rising. "Empire" capped off a remarkable spring run by topping 16.5 million viewers and rising to a 6.4 rating in the key demo for its Wednesday finale, leading Fox to a rout in all measures. And because this is "Empire" we're talking about, the 8 p.m. hour for the finale already hit series highs and then the 9 p.m. hour rose from there, as "Empire" neared 17.5 million viewers in its final hour. Most of the competition wisely got out of the way of the "Empire" juggernaut, though "Survivor" pretty much held its own and "Arrow" and "Supernatural" were down a bit. With "Survivor" doing two hours, "CSI: Cyber" had to air without a "Criminal Minds" lead-in and took a big drop. Coming out of two hours of comedy repeats, ABC got »
