In a dynamic marketplace, a rising tide lifts all boats. And the tidal wave of television series production in the past few years has led to an unprecedented number of women serving as captains of their ships — as showrunners and auteur writer-directors of shows.
And Shonda Rhimes now has company on the list of women who are juggling multiple primetime series.
This sea change comes with financial gains, according to data from the Writers Guild of America West, and brings anecdotal evidence of shifts in the way series are made. But it’s not just the heightened demand for content that has been good for female creatives; a newfound openness to material, no matter how challenging or narrowly focused, has paved the way for shows with fresh themes. »

Motherhood looks good on Jennifer Love Hewitt! The "Criminal Minds" star showed off her post-baby bod for the first time over the weekend, just five weeks after giving birth to son Atticus. The actress covered up her curves in a printed tunic, skinny jeans and suede booties in Los Angeles. The mother-of-two looks like she's already shedding the baby weight, but she recently admitted that being pregnant allowed her to enjoy some guilty pleasures. "I’ve been an actress for 25 years, and have had to be hungry at times for my career, so being pregnant is completely freeing," she told Parents magazine in May. "When I was expecting Autumn, I ate everything I saw! I told myself, ‘Oh there’s a donut – I should have that.’ Now with this second pregnancy, I know the baby really doesn’t ‘need it.’ So I eat healthy foods in general, but I also »

CBS’ “Big Brother” ruled as Wednesday’s most popular show among young adults, but NBC finished on top for the night thanks to an “America’s Got Talent” anniversary special and a good week two performance by “Last Comic Standing.”
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, the 10th anniversary celebration of “America’s Got Talent” averaged a 1.6 rating/6 share in adults 18-49 and 7.7 million viewers overall from 8 to 10 p.m., placing second to “Big Brother” in demos for its first half and then surging to the lead at 9. It was followed by “Last Comic Standing” (1.4/5 in 18-49, 5.8 million viewers overall), which held nearly all of its premiere-week 18-49 rating (1.5) and dominated its hour. In total viewers, this is the second most-watched episode of the show’s four most recent seasons — behind only last week’s 6.1 million.
NBC will continue to air first-run “Talent” programming in the 8 o’clock hour, »

The one-two punch of “America’s Got Talent” and “American Ninja Warrior” put NBC back on top of the ratings leaderboard last week, with the network also getting a nice boost from the return of “Last Comic Standing.”
In a summer when reality has ruled over scripted originals, NBC has prevailed in the weeks not dominated by major sporting events. Last week, according to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates, its 1.1 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 edged out Spanish-language network Univision (1.0/4) as well as rivals ABC (0.9/4), CBS (0.9/4) and Fox (0.8/3).
The Peacock also won in adults 25-54 and adults 18-34 while CBS led as usual in total viewers.
“America’s Got Talent” was on the low side of its summer range but still set the week’s pace in both 18-49 (2.3/9) and total viewers (10.50 million), while “American Ninja Warrior” surged 17% to match a three-year demo high (2.1/7 in 18-49, 6.68 million viewers overall).

NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” looked good as it returned for a ninth season on Wednesday, winning its timeslot and finishing behind only CBS’ “The Big Brother” among the night’s top-rated shows in young adults. Also at CBS, sophomore drama “Extant” remained sluggish but at least saw a ratings uptick in its new timeslot.

Scripted programming continues to take a backseat this summer, with reality series and a trio of sports specials dominating the top of the Nielsen program rankings in key demos.
