HBO TV Show Ratings (updated 10/21/14)

11 hours ago | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

While HBO execs aren't tied to the ratings like regular commercial channels, they have to air programs that will keep viewers subscribed. Which of their shows will be cancelled or renewed? We'll have to wait and see.

Scripted HBO shows listed: Boardwalk Empire, Eastbound & Down, Game of Thrones, Girls, Hello Ladies, Jonah from Tonga, The Leftovers, Looking, The Newsroom, Silicon Valley, True Blood, True Detective, and Veep.

Last update: Most recent ratings for Boardwalk Empire added.

There's lots of data that HBO execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series. The ratings for initial airings don't play as large a role as they do on commercial stations but they are still an indication of how popular a show is. Here's an updated listing of HBO's recent/current primetime scripted shows. »

Charlie Cox talks about Marvel’s Daredevil

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Charlie Cox (Stardust) was announced to play Daredevil on Marvel’s Netflix show of the same name a few months ago, and since then he has kept quiet about the project. We knew virtually nothing about the show prior to its panel at the New York Comic Con earlier this month where the cast spoke about working on the project [watch the panel here], and now Cox has divulged more information in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter…

“It’s great fun, but it also comes with a great deal of responsibility, I wasn’t really aware of how vast the comic book world was until I became part of the Marvel universe. I went to Comic Con last week, and it’s really important to a lot of people. It really is. I’m having a great time.”

Cox went on to talk about research and the shows “darker” tone: “I’ve read »

True Blood's Ryan Kwanten Is Totally Welcome to Help Us Move

20 October 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Ryan Kwanten went shirtless while moving some furniture during a visit with his parents in Sydney, Australia, on Saturday. The True Blood hunk prepared for a day of lounging in the sun by rearranging a few chairs on the lawn, and naturally, his shirt just got in the way. Clearly, Ryan hasn't given up his workout routine since his role on the HBO show ended back in August; True Blood ended its seven-season run over the Summer, but not before Ryan's character Jason engaged in a supersteamy sex scene with Eric Northman, played by Alexander Skarsgard. Not long after the scene aired, we spotted Ryan flaunting his flawless physique on the beach in Malibu, CA, a moment that unsurprisingly landed him in the No. 4 spot of our 2014 Popsugar Shirtless Bracket. Keep reading to see why Ryan is welcome to help us out next time we move. »

The Good Wife, Ep. 6.05: “Shiny Objects” cleverly rewards longtime viewers

20 October 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Good Wife, Season 6, Episode 5: “Shiny Objects”

Written by Keith Eisner

Directed by Frederick E. O. Toye

Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on CBS

One of the particular strengths of The Good Wife is its uncanny sense of series memory. With well over 100 episodes’ worth of long-standing character relationships, tertiary characters, and running gags to draw upon, it’s rare that a new episode comes down the pike that doesn’t reward long-time viewers, even if it’s just in a minute way. “Shiny Objects” is, on the surface, a prototypical latter-day Good Wife episode, in that it offers up a case of the week while keeping the season’s master plot humming along, but it also manages (for better and worse) to lean on several long-standing relationships and character beats to an unusual degree.

The least of these bears special mention. This week, it was announced that Archie Panjabi »

Revenge Recap: Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself

19 October 2014 7:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

David Clarke, “a symbol of hope and courage?” That’s what the media’s calling him after Sunday’s Revenge, though it’s totally Ok if you still see him as the self-whipping, daughter-attacking, insane beard-having lunatic we’ve all grown to love.

Evan Rachel Wood: My Vanity Fair Cover Shoot Made Me Feel "Like Meat"

Evan Rachel Wood did not enjoy her first experience shooting a Vanity Fair cover.  After one of her Twitter followers posted a throwback pic of Wood from the magazine's 2003 cover, the True Blood actress responded with a series of tweets criticizing the issue's shoot. "I was almost in tears after this shoot," wrote Wood, who was 15 when she posed for the magazine's "Young Hollywood" issue. The actress explained that she didn't feel comfortable in the dress that was chosen for her but was told there wasn't time to tailor it. Read more Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch Make

The Illusionist Movie Getting a CW Series Adaptation

18 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Edward Norton's fantastic 2006 film The Illusionist is the latest movie to be added to the list of TV series adaptations. I really liked this movie, especially for the fact that it centered on magic, which is something I'm completely fascinated with. On top of that it had an intriguing story.

The movie was written and directed by Neil Burger, and it's set in 1889 Vienna. The story centers around a magician named Eisenheim (Norton), who is competing with the Crown Prince for the love of a noble woman (Jessica Biel). At the same time he's being chased and investigated by the chief of police (Paul Giamatti), who is suspicious of his talents. 

The series is being written by Mark Hudis (True Blood), and according to Deadline, the new adaptation will take place in turn of the century New York. "It centers on a renowned illusionist who returns home from a »

Cheers, Moe's, Queen Vic: What is TV's best pub?

18 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Men Behaving Badly made a brief return in the form of a one-off sketch last night (October 13) as part of the Stand Up To Cancer telethon on Channel 4.

One of the highlights of the original series was Gary (Martin Clunes) and Tony's (Neil Morrissey) quest to find a new pub after The Crown gets a revamp. Gary's system of ranking their locals with different categories is a great tool for real-life pub crawls after moving somewhere new. Try it!

With this in mind, we pondered which pubs from TV history would rank well using a system similar to Gary's? We've chosen just a handful of famous watering holes in order to find the best one. The only rule is that they need to serve alcoholic drinks, so Central Perk doesn't count.

15 Outlandish New-But-Familiar-Sounding TV Pilots

17 October 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Who says TV programmers have run out of ideas?

Why, just in the last week, the trade papers have announced deals and casting for as many as 15 new reboots spinoff series and specials. Some sound like familiar shows, others like mutant Frankenstein hybrids of familiar shows. We'll leave it to you to decide which of these programs sound like must-see-tv and which sound like much-skip-tv.

"Care Bears and Cousins." Fuzzy is the new black at Netflix, which is reviving the candy-colored kiddie cartoon series but adding some new characters. No, Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright are not going to have a threesome with one of them.

"Cheerleader Death Squad." The CW has ordered this series, from the showrunners behind "Desperate Housewives" and "Under the Dome" (that'd be Marc Cherry and Neal Baer, respectively) about an elite prep school where the pep squad is made up of spies-in-training. Dan Truly ("Blue »

Alexandra Breckenridge joins cast of The Walking Dead

16 October 2014 12:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From American Horror Story to The Walking Dead, expect more Alexandra Breckenridge your screens soon...

Alexandra Breckenridge, who you might recognise from American Horror Story, She’s The Man or True Blood, is now joining the cast of AMC’s The Walking Dead.

The show is in rude health, with a record-smashing 17.3 million tuning in for the season five premiere. Season six is already confirmed, and a spin-off is in the works too.

With a pretty constant string of character deaths, it’s not surprising that new faces are being added to the cast.

In line with the show’s running form at trying to keep future plot points under a shroud of secrecy, often using fake names to throw comic book fans off the scent, we don’t know much about her character.

Samantha is the name she’s given currently, with her breakdown describing her as “an attractive, »

HBO to Offer HBO Go to Non Cable Subscribers, But At What Cost?

15 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

For as long as I can remember, HBO was cable TV. It was the best reason to start paying for television long before it was synonymous with the new wave of quality series programming. But a lot of its success and popularity had to do with how it was packaged for subscribers, always the primary premium channel offered in the tiered-pricing model. Most of us who grew up in the first decades of cable would have HBO before we would have Showtime and the rest, even before we’d have HBO partner Cinemax. Now, HBO could be the first blow that kills cable. There have been non-lethal jabs in recent years in the forms of Netflix, iTunes, Hulu and networks that offer shows on their own websites, but Time Warner’s announcement that HBO Go will be offered as a standalone service next year, that’s a deadly punch. All the people who have cable mainly so »

"The Illusionist" Becomes A TV Series

15 October 2014 4:07 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The CW and Yari Film Group are teaming to develop "The Illusionist," a TV series based on the 2006 period drama film of the same name starring Edward Norton, Jessica Biel and Paul Giamatti.

The original starred Norton as a magician in 19th Century Vienna who uses his incredible skills to win the heart of a Duchess and save her from the brutal Crown Prince Leopold (Rufus Sewell) to whom she is betrothed.

The TV series switches around the premise and setting, which will now take place in New York City at the turn of the century. There an illusionist returns home from a decade in prison to find his wife married to the ruthless crime boss who framed him.

The illusionist disguises himself as an underling in the crime lord's organization, using his sleight-of-hand skills to pull off daring heists, rising through the ranks to win back his beloved and bring down the crime boss. »
