NCIS: Los Angeles‘ Christmas-themed winter finale was teeming with good cheer — in the final moments, at least, and after much anxiety for Callen.
The Case of the Week involved a thumbdrive loaded with stolen super-malware, which the team realizes had been hastily dropped inside a handbag belonging to Callen’s girlfriend Joelle, as the Santa-dressed thief made his escape.
Fearing the baddies might track down and come gunning for Jo, Callen kept a close eye on her. And though Kensi and Deeks were able to subdue one of the killers who eventually came a-knocking, two others stormed Joelle’s home, »
Four little words made waves in the Whedonverse this weekend: “Widescreen Buffy is nonsense.”
Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon finally came out swinging Saturday against the HD version of his iconic series, now airing on Pivot. Originally shot in a 4:3 aspect ratio, the new 16:9 format is loaded with questionable changes, including awkward cropping, suspect lighting and even occasional appearances by crew members in shots, all of which is carefully detailed in this Facebook post.
A prime example is this shot from the Season 1 episode “Angel,” which — without the original, darker filter — makes it appear as though »
CBS’ NCIS will take its deepest dive ever into Agent Tony Dinozzo’s past with an episode that flashes back to his days as a teenager attending a military preparatory academy.
Showrunner Gary Glasberg touts Stine as a “terrific kid who literally studied Michael Weatherly’s mannerisms” and in turn “blew us away in the audition. He came in with the haircut, the attitude, the whole thing.”
CBS is trying once again to spin off a series from its highly successful show “Criminal Minds.”
The spinoff, which will launch as a planted episode of “Criminal Minds” later this season, will focus on an elite FBI team of profilers who work abroad. Showrunner Erica Messer will write and exec produce the episode. Casting is now in progress.

CBS is catching on to the dirty work that cable TV is doing, spin-off series. Now we hear that Criminal Minds appears to be their target again. Sometime next season we will see the episode set to launch in the untitled show. It will focus on a different team within the FBI as we have seen with the previous spin-off series Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior
. Erica Messer will be writing and owning the deal for the spin-off with CBS. Other than confirmation of the episode, nothing else has been released.
This sounds like it may have been a very last minute kind of deal. I do not see why else they would have not said something earlier this season or plans for it. It will be interesting to find out more if they will release it. I think a lot of fans will have some questions now that this is popped on us. »

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, he's decided to abandon his campaign against evil until a series of events thrusts him back into the fray, and he'll do whatever it takes to protect the innocent. With the balance of good and evil on the line, Constantine will use his skills to travel the country, find the supernatural terrors that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows... maybe there's hope for him and his soul after all. »

Casting for the episode/prospective series is already underway, with an eye on a February production date.
CBS of course previously tried to spin off Criminal Minds some five years ago, »
CBS is once again looking to spin off one of its major crime drama franchises: EW has learned that Criminal Minds will have a new planted spinoff episode later this season. The as-yet-untitled project focuses on a "division of the FBI that helps American citizens who find themselves in trouble abroad." We're told the show is likely to have an entirely different cast than the original series, which is on its 10th year, but sources say that factor has yet to be determined. Adding a more international angle to the series makes sense in light of the recent success NBC »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, December 10, 2014. "Criminal Minds" was Wednesday's most watched show, while "Modern Family" was tops in young viewers, leading CBS and ABC to split primetime. All of ABC's comedies bounced back after slow performances last week, with "The Middle" even rising into a tie among young viewers with "The Goldbergs."

Among adults 18-49, ABC averaged a 2.1 rating for Wednesday night, edging out CBS' 2.0 rating in the key demographic. NBC was third with a 1.4 key demo rating, followed by the 1.2 key demo rating for Fox. The CW averaged a 0.8 key demo rating for the night. Overall, though, CBS averaged an estimated 8.92 million viewers and a 5.5 rating/9 share to comfortably win Wednesday primetime. ABC and NBC both averaged a 4.6/8, with ABC averaging 7.31 million viewers to the 7.17 million viewers for NBC. »

Update: In updated national estimates from Nielsen released Thursday afternoon, NBC’s “Chicago Pd” (1.5 rating/5 share in adults 18-49, 6.71 million viewers overall) was revised up a tenth and marked the first time this season that it had built on its “Law & Order: Svu” demo lead-in. There was a three-way tie in 18-49 at 10 p.m. between “Chicago Pd,” ABC’s “Nashville” and FX’s “American Horror Story,” with CBS’ “Stalker” a tick behind the trio.
Also rising a tick in the nationals was CW’s “Arrow” (1.1/3 in 18-49, 3.06 million viewers overall), which ended up tying its second best score of the season (behind only last week’s crossover episode with “The Flash”).
ABC’s comedies didn’t budge, so “The Goldbergs” didn’t technically improve upon “The Middle” for the first time. They each finished at a 2.2 in the roundoffs, but for those who care about these things, “Goldbergs” (2.24 rating »

Sometimes a small gesture can make a huge difference.
Fifteen-year-old Manuel Sanchez-Paniagua has been battling liver and brain cancer for the past year. And when the cast and crew of Criminal Minds heard the CBS procedural was his favorite show, they jumped at the chance to meet him. Et was behind the scenes of Manuel's day on the set with stars Joe Mantegna and Shemar Moore.
