Canceled or Renewed?: Take the Quiz to Find Out Whether Your Favorite Show Will Survive

13 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For shows on the bubble, survival comes down to one thing: Money.

If you’re generating solid revenue for the network, then other concerns can be addressed down the road. But if your ratings are low (honestly, that’s almost every show these days), your creative is weak and executive support is wavering… then you better at least be owned by the network and bringing in nice international or streaming dollars.

“Every show is its own little business,” said one network scheduling executive. “You look at each and its profit or loss at the end of the year.”

Added a rival network exec: “The strategy is, how can we make the most money from all of our assets? [Renewal] discussions these days are very different.”

5 Reasons 'Criminal Minds' Needs a Full Episode Dedicated to Reid and His Mother

15 hours ago | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Spencer Reid's mother, Diana Reid (actress Jane Lynch) returned to Criminal Minds earlier in season 12. It's been awhile since we've seen her but it definitely reminded fans of the amazing mother and son dynamic between the two. There doesn't seem like there's ever enough time for them to portray their true relationship, so it's clear that an entire Criminal Minds episode should be dedicated to them for multiple reasons.

“Empire” aired its first new episode in two weeks on Wednesday night, with the Fox music drama returning at a new series low, according to Nielsen data. Nevertheless, it was still the top-rated show of the night in adults 18-49.

“Empire” averaged a 2.1 rating and 6.2 million viewers, down from the previous series low on April 5 (2.2, 6.4 million). Still, the series remains incredibly popular in delayed viewing and will likely add significant viewership in both L+3 and L+7.

'Criminal Minds': Is Lindsey Vaughn Attacking the Bau?

27 April 2017 6:26 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

"Unforgettable" was a nice break from Spencer Reid's incarceration on Criminal Minds. The last several episodes have been split between the team solving a case and Spencer dealing with prison. I liked watching Spencer in prison for a while, but it started to get old after several weeks. "Unforgettable" not only gave us a little break from Spencer's prison life, but it gave us a glimpse into Stephen Walker's past as well.

Did Reid find a way out of prison?

That was addressed on Criminal Minds Season 12 Episode 20 when he got word that his trial would be starting in the near future.

However, someone in the prison was not impressed at the blatant favoritism Reid was getting.

Criminal Minds Season 12 Episode 20 Review: Unforgettable

26 April 2017 8:46 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Well, there's nothing like sitting through 44 minutes of humdrum narrative to get to one minute of reveal.

But that was the situation on Criminal Minds Season 12 Episode 20.

Let's go through that humdrum portion first, then hopefully pick up more narrative momentum than this hour did.

Somebody was radioactively poisoning federal workers at random.

Was it The Russians?

That would have made for a more interesting storyline.

But no.

Instead, it was a woman who wanted to get rid of her husband and collect a $5 million insurance payout.

It couldn't be a simple murder. To be Bau worthy, it had to be complicated.

The nurse, a caretaker, had to collect radioactive materials from a bunch of different hospitals, then sandwich her husband's murder among four or five others.

Still, they managed to figure out Sarah's plot and gun her down before the last commercial break.

They didn't even need Garcia to »

'Criminal Minds' Recap: Reid Remembers Who Framed Him After a Big Surprise

26 April 2017 1:08 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Criminal Minds is putting the pieces in place for the end of the season, and with only two episodes to go after this one, they can't draw it out any longer: the person who framed Reid has to be revealed. And she is.

Also in "Unforgettable," the team investigates after Stephen's friend is admitted to the hospital, but he's not the only victim as they soon find out, and it has nothing to do with his past work.

Criminal Minds Sneak Peek: Mr. Scratch or ... Putin?!?

26 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

When several federal government employees, including a close friend of Walker's, succumb to symptoms of a heart attack, the Bau investigates.

Walker's friend is a former counter-intelligence agent who worked in Russia.

While it could have been Mr. Scratch, it's Putin who has access to the "Special Room" where irradiated poisons are made for cases just like this.

On Criminal Minds Season 12 Episode 20, it's up to the Bau team to investigate all of the angles.

And really, isn't the idea of Russian operatives far more interesting than a plain ol' American or Mr. Scratch?

But don't worry, that's not all we'll be seeing on "Unforgettable."

Jane Lynch makes her return as Diana Reid, Spencer's mother.

We've been wondering how she's been faring since Spencer's incarceration, and it appears we're about to find out.

Reid is anxiously awaiting his trial date. All this viewer knows is the longer he's in there, »

'Criminal Minds' Theory: Could Lindsey Vaughn Have Framed Reid?

21 April 2017 2:45 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

With only three episodes of Criminal Minds season 12 left to go, Reid's still in prison and still putting together what happened in that motel room in Mexico. He did make progress during his last conversation with Tara, remembering that Mr. Scratch drugged him, but then he said that she told him it was "time to go" and she walked out of there and wanted him to chase her. "It wasn't Scratch who framed me," he explained. "It was a woman."

Assuming we can trust that memory, who is that woman? It seems more likely than not it's going to be someone recognizable from a previous episode, and Gia Mantegna is reprising her role as Lindsey Vaughn in the final three episodes. When TVLine asked showrunner Erica Messer about her return, all she said was "that's a bit of a spoiler." Could Lindsey be the one who framed Reid?

Bruna Papandrea’s Series “Deadlier Than the Male” Gets Pilot Order from TNT

19 April 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Bruna Papandrea: Screen Australia/YouTube

Bruna Papandrea has lined up yet another project. The “Big Little Lies” exec producer’s drama series, “Deadlier Than the Male,” received a pilot order from TNT. The Hollywood Reporter broke the story.

In a plot that’s sure to interest “Bll” fans, the show “centers on a trio of characters, each with a mysterious and troubling past, including a woman who once looked into the eyes of a dangerous killer; a former serial predator desperate to find redemption; and a grieving mother obsessed with finding her missing daughter. As each of them is pushed to the edge, the truth about their pasts and their motives grows ever murkier, blurring the lines between victim and perpetrator.”

Papandrea will exec produce “Deadlier Than the Male” with Casey Haver (“Housesitters”) and Harriet Warner (“Call the Midwife”). Warner will also write the pilot. Turner’s Studio T banner will produce.

“‘Deadlier Than the Male’ will represent TNT’s exploration into a new style of mystery drama,” said TNT vp of original programming Sarah Aubrey. “It’s not about ‘who done it,’ but why it was done,” she added.

Papandrea’s recently-launched Made Up Stories banner made its first acquisition with the rights to “The House On Langley Lake,” Elizabeth Klehforth’s debut novel. The yet-to-be-published book features multiple storylines that explore friendship and family.

Previously, the producer worked with Reese Witherspoon at Pacific Standard, the production company behind “Gone Girl,” “Wild,” and “Big Little Lies.” The series finale of “Bll” aired on HBO just a few weeks ago. The critically acclaimed murder mystery was a ratings hit, and is expected to rack up a number of Emmy nominations.

Made Up Stories is currently producing and co-financing “The Babadook” helmer Jennifer Kent’s “The Nightingale,” about a woman seeking revenge for her family’s murder in Tasmania, Australia. The film is currently in production.

Another woman-helmed TNT drama on our radar is the Niecy Nash-starrer “Claws.” From showrunner Janine Sherman Barrois (“Criminal Minds”), the series is about five cutthroat manicurists working at a South Floridian salon. It premieres June 11.

Bruna Papandrea’s Series “Deadlier Than the Male” Gets Pilot Order from TNT was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
