The CW’s Arrow has cast Emily Owens alum J.R. Ramirez as the DC Comics character Ted “Wildcat” Grant, who in his TV incarnation is an ex-boxer who runs a gym for underprivileged youth in Starling City, our sister site Deadline reports.
Per DC Comics lore, Ted, as a member of the Justice Society of America, trained assorted crimefighters — including Black Canary. And as Ep Marc Guggenheim recently told TVLine, in talking up Katie Cassidy’s Season 3 story arc, »
It’s a good thing NBC released that Constantine trailer revealed at San Diego Comic-Con because it’s far superior to that last one we shared back in June and also goes well beyond that very first one we got, which essentially is a summary of the pilot episode. Not only does this new version continue to highlight Matt Ryan’s spot-on casting, but it also rocks loads of eerie imagery, a powerful build and some new material that offers up a more comprehensive sense of what to expect from the show’s first season. Hit the jump to check out the Constantine Sdcc preview. The show kicks off on October 24th at 10/9c and also stars Lucy Griffiths (for a little bit at least), Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford with Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer aboard as executive producers. Here’s the official synopsis for Constantine: Based »

Extant Gets New Timeslot
Just three weeks into its freshman season, Extant’s ratings are causing some concern for CBS. The network believes that the show might have a better chance picking up viewers at 10 p.m. following a Criminal Minds rerun, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Extant has been trying to feed off a lead-in from Big Brother, however the series is only getting about half of Big Brother’s rating.
Extant’s premiere had 9.6 total viewers and a 1.6 rating with adults aged 18-49. It’s third episode, however, had only 6.5 million viewers in the key demographic and a rating of 1.1.
The choice wasn’t easy: Handsome lugnut with laborador enthusiasm and the conversational depth of a self-service supermarket checkout machine or smarmy-but-smart goofball with unfortunate hair-helmet issues.
One thing was certain as The Bachelorette: A District Attorney Sacrifices Her Professional Credibility for Love (or Its TV Equivalent) came to an end tonight: No way was Andi Dorfman going to opt for “None of the Above.”

(Cbr) During Saturday's three-hour "Night of DC Entertainment" panel at Comic-Con, Warner Bros. Television premiered a new trailer for "Constantine" that may win over a few skeptics. Although it contains some footage we've seen before, this preview is faster-paced, emphasizing the horror elements and John Constantine's struggles while playing down the role of actress Lucy Griffiths, whose character Liv has been written out of the NBC supernatural drama. Developed by Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer, "Constantine" stars Matt Ryan, Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford. It premieres Oct. 24 on NBC. Based on the wildly popular comic book series "Hellblazer" from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, "Criminal Minds") is armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and a wickedly naughty wit. He fights the good fight - or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, »

After taking a hit in the ratings in its third outing last week, CBS’ Halle Berry-fronted sci-fi drama “Extant” is moving back an hour, starting this week. The move will enable the show to avoid going head-to-head with summer’s No. 1 show, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”
“Extant,” which had been airing Wednesdays at 9 p.m. behind “Big Brother,” will swap timeslots with repeats of “Criminal Minds.” The vet drama will now air at 9 p.m., its regular fall timeslot anyway, and will serve as a lead-in for “Extant.”
While “Big Brother” is a strong demo performer for CBS, it hasn’t always meshed well with scripted programming behind it, and the Eye would like to see how “Extant” fares with a more compatible — scripted drama — lead-in.
CBS tried a similar timeslot switch earlier this month with its Sunday dramas — and it has paid off. The new “Reckless, »

For fans of the new CBS series "Extant," you should be aware that the network is moving its air time up an hour, from its current 9pm time slot, to 10pm on Wednesday nights. Why? Well, after a strong 9.4 million total viewers debut, audience draw has gradually slipped since then, to around 6.5 million viewers - a quite significant drop-off, after just 3 episodes of what is expected to be a 13-episode season. So CBS is hoping that the later time-slot, which will give the series a lead-in from "Criminal Minds" repeats, will help raise ratings ("Big Brother" is the show's current lead-in). And maybe more importantly, it also means that it won't compete with Fox's »

CBS’ out-of-this world drama “Extant” is moving out of its timeslot. Beginning Wednesday, the series — which stars Halle Berry as an astronaut who returns from a 13-month solo mission mysteriously pregnant — will shift from its 9 p.m. timeslot to 10 p.m., with repeats of “Criminal Minds” serving as a lead-in.

Following two consecutive weeks of ratings declines, CBS’ Extant is getting a new (and improved?) launching pad.
Beginning with this Wednesday’s episode, the sci-fi-tinged summer series will air an hour later, at 10/9c, leading out of Criminal Minds repeats.

“I guarantee you, things are crawling out of the shadows on a scale we have never seen before, John.” Thankfully, occult detective John Constantine’s knowledge and wit stand between us and these increasingly daring evil spirits. Based on a popular DC comic book series, Constantine is coming to NBC this October, and a new trailer was unveiled at Comic-Con yesterday, along with a behind-the-scenes music featurette.
NBC’s Constantine will premiere on Friday, October 24th at 10:00 pm. It was recently revealed that leading lady Lucy Griffiths, who plays Liv in the pilot episode, had left the show and will be replaced with a new female character straight out of the comics: Zed, a woman with a dark past who aids Constantine in his battle against malicious forces from Hell. Actress Angelica Celaya (Dallas, Burn Notice) will play Zed.

I’m much more used to seeing medical dramas airing during the fall. Summer time seems to be filled with mediocre comedies, trashy reality shows, and very little substance if the networks can help it. That’s not something I have much of a problem with, since summer is also a time for big-budget action flicks and Shakespeare in the Park. In short, summer is a time to get out of the house and not spend time trying to keep plots and characters straight if you can help it.
The advertisements for ABC’s “Black Box” looked intriguing. They promised a show about a neurologist with bipolar disorder who has a brilliant career. It made me curious about the show, thinking maybe, since the show would deal primarily with both brain and mental disorders that it would have at least a sympathetic portrayal of the patients.

According to a recent report from TV Line, the American Horror Story season 4: Freak Show folks have casts actor, Finn Wittrock (left), to protray a new mystery role. Producer, Ryan Murphy, hit up his official Twitter account to dish out the news with the following words: "Thrilled to announce the very talented Finn Wittrock has joined the cast of Freak Show!" Of course, he didn't deliver any details about the new character, so it will unfortunately remain a mystery for now. As previously reported, the new season 4 will revolve around the last freak show in America circa 1952. Finn Wittrock's acting credits include roles in 'All my Children," Normal Heart, an arc on Masters of Sex and guest spots on Criminal Minds, Harry’s Law and Torchwood. Season 4 is due to debut on Wednesday night, October 15th, 2014 at 10pm on FX. »

AMC has ordered the pilot of the Afghanistan-set geopolitical drama “White City,” Variety has learned.
The project, which will concentrate on Western diplomats and journalists living in Afghanistan, focuses on a lead character named Jon Liston, a war junkie who makes a fatal error and tragically overreaches in an attempt to talk with insurgent leaders. He must then struggle with his guilt, as well as frustration and doubts about whether there is good left for him — or any Westerner — to do in Afghanistan, as he decides if he should find a new role in Kabul.
The project is co-written and co-exec produced by novelist-journalist Nick McDonell and former Richard C. Holbrooke advisor John Dempsey. Executive producers are Chris Mundy (“Low Winter Sun,” “Criminal Minds”) and Tom Freston, the former CEO of Viacom and a former resident of Afghanistan. He is currently an advisor to Vice and Moby Group, an Afghan media corporation. »

Thrilled to announce the very talented Finn Wittrock has joined the cast of Freak Show!—

Audiences stuck with their reality favorites on Wednesday, as CBS’ “Big Brother” and NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” were the top draws among young adults while dramas “Extant” on CBS and “Motive” on ABC fell to lows. One scripted bright spot was NBC’s “Taxi Brooklyn,” which took advantage of its stronger lead-in to hit series highs.
According to preliminary “Live plus same-day” national estimates from Nielsen, “Big Brother” (2.3 rating/9 share in adults 18-49, 6.6 million viewers overall) was up two tenths week to week, its third straight week of Wednesday growth; head-to-head, it beat NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” in 18-49 (2.3 vs. 2.1). At 9 p.m., though, drama “Extant” (1.1/4 in 18-49, 6.4 million viewers overall) was affected by the stronger “Talent” competition, tumbling four tenths in the demo and losing about 1.5 million total viewers week to week.
In its first two weeks, “Extant” saw its averages grow by six tenths »
