A nice premiere for “Chicago Med” teamed with winning results for “The Voice,” “Blindspot” and “Sunday Night Football” to lift NBC to another victory in the young-adults demo and helped cinch another November sweep victory for the network.
NBC, which won for an eighth time in nine weeks this fall in adults 18-49, prevailed for a fourth straight November sweep, according to preliminary estimates for the ratings period which ends tonight. And its margin of victory over the second-place finisher (21% ahead of Fox) would be the largest for any network in 19 years.
With three nights to be counted (through Sunday), NBC led in adults 18-49 with a 2.3 “live plus same-day” rating, followed by Fox (1.9), CBS (1.8), ABC (1.7), Univision (0.8), CW (0.6) and Telemundo (0.5). The Peacock also is poised to prevail in adults 25-54 (2.9 vs. 2.5 for CBS) and adults 18-34 (1.7 vs. 1.4 for Fox) while CBS cruised in total viewers (9.6 million vs. 8.1 million for NBC »

Kaley Cuoco split from her husband, Ryan Sweeting, in September, and this week she made the breakup official - in ink. The Big Bang Theory star took to Instagram on Tuesday to share photos while covering up her tattoo of their wedding date - Kaley and Ryan tied the knot nearly two years ago on New Year's Eve 2013 after a whirlwind romance, and the actress commemorated her big day with the ink on her back. In the first snap, Kaley sits in the artist's chair wearing sunglasses and a scowl, and wrote, "Thank you @nero_sct @studiocitytattoo for helping me right my wrongs," cryptically adding, "Note to self - do not mark your body with any future wedding dates #under30mistakes #donttakeyourselftooseriouslykids." A follow-up photo shows detail of the giant moth on her back, which she captioned, "The deep, meaningful, larger than life meaning behind this beautiful piece of ink, »

Updated With Finals: The Monday kicking off a holiday week produced lower-than-usual same-night ratings numbers for top shows NBC’s “The Voice” and “Blindspot,” with the former impacted by the final performance episode of competing reality series “Dancing With the Stars” on ABC and the latter dropping to a low even with its fall finale. Also on the decline and hitting a low was CBS rookie “Supergirl,” which is now delivering a young-adult audience on par with CW’s “The Flash” and only a little ahead of Fox’s “Gotham.”
Impacting the broadcast networks on Monday was an above-average “Monday Night Football” game on Espn. Its Buffalo Bills-New England Patriots matchup averaged a 5.1 rating in adults 18-49 (a four-week high in the demo) and 14.26 million viewers overall. The game had hit a season high in the overnights with a 10.0 household rating, but that didn’t hold up in the nationals »

For decades, the fabled studio of Humphrey Bogart and Bette Davis maintained its dominance in the Hollywood pecking order, and held the promise of staying there — in recent years on the backs of such lucrative franchises as “Harry Potter” and “The Dark Knight.”
But in today’s high-stakes, competitive landscape, sustaining that lofty perch has proven excruciatingly difficult.

In the 2½ years since Tsujihara was named chairman and CEO, and took command of Warners’ massive ship, the company has been riding a sea of fundamental change. Entertainment is being consumed around the globe at record levels, but exactly when, where and how that happens has become more fluid in a rapidly shifting industry — making the job of any Hollywood chieftain more complex and perplexing than ever.
Consequently, Tsujihara »

9.9 The Platonic Permutation
We're nearing the half-way point of The Big Bang Theory season nine, demonstrated by the Thanksgiving theme of this episode, and it's about time for the writers to figure out what the heck they're doing with Sheldon and Amy. Both characters are as big a part of the show as they ever were, and many episodes have been expressly about exploring the fallout from their breakup but, prior to The Platonic Permutation, we were seemingly no closer to a resolution.
As said, this has now changed, and we've witnessed an almost 360-degree turnaround on the dynamic between the two. They're now friends, but Amy is the pursuer rather than the pursued. It appears as if something broke in Sheldon when he »
ABC’s rookie drama “Quantico,” already a big gainer in delayed viewing ratings, saw its largest lift yet in Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates last week and hit a four-week high overall.
Other three-day ratings highlights for the Nov. 9-15 frame included season-high adults 18-49 ratings for ABC’s “Last Man Standing,” CW’s “The Flash” and the CW’s “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” And at AMC, “Into the Badlands” didn’t have the biggest lift in delayed viewing but wound up as the No. 3-rated premiere in cable history among adults 18-49.
Looking at “Quantico,” Nielsen estimates that the Sunday series averaged a 2.85 rating in adults 18-49 for its Nov. 15 episode — up 123% from its “live plus same-day” rating reported on Monday (1.33). This is the third straight week that the show has more than doubled its rating with three days’ of time-shifted viewing via DVR playback and VOD.
The 123% lift is the »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Grimm, Castle, Grey’s Anatomy and The Big Bang Theory!
1 | Isn’t it a little weird to watch Grimm‘s Adalind being so nice? Is anyone else just waiting for the other Hexen-shoe to drop?
2 | “Black Jeopardy” was moderately amusing on Saturday Night Live, but can we get a 12-month moratorium on game show sketches?
3 | Walking Dead fans, are »

“I don’t know that it is ever easy to sum up what it is like to perform a scene like this as an actor, »
ABC captured Thursday’s ratings race in key demos behind strong performances by the fall finales of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder.” All three shows were up multiple tenths week to week, with the warhorse “Grey’s” — at an eight week high and actually up vs. its performance on the comparable night a year ago — joining “Murder” as the standouts.
According to preliminary “live plus same-day” national estimates from Nielsen, “Grey’s Anatomy” averaged a 2.5 rating/8 share in adults 18-49 an 8.5 million viewers overall. It was up 14% (0.3) week to week to its highest rating in the eight weeks since its season premiere. It also stood as ABC’s top-rated program of the night, and has now out-rated “Scandal” in two of the last three weeks.

We’re all confronted with harsh fashion truths throughout our lives, and here’s one Tbbt star Johnny Galecki should internalize: Orange is not his color. He proved this to be true when he — or, rather, his character, Leonard — donned an orange negligee and paraded about his apartment in it, twerking. It was one of two subplots that dragged down "The Platonic Permutation," likely the final episode we’ll see before some major goings-on push forward Sheldon and Amy's relationship before the end of 2015.Let's move on to the good stuff: While Leonard and Penny whip up their first Thanksgiving dinner as newlyweds, he discovers that she doesn’t know his birthday. It is pretty appalling! Even with our overreliance on smartphone calendars, the birthday of a significant other — especially one you’ve significantly other-ed for many years — is something that should be on instant recall. Penny knows he was »

The Bronze got a lot of attention at Sundance for its crazy sex scene, but since it can't exactly lead with that in a trailer — or possibly it could, but then it would seem like a very different kind of movie — it's leading with its second most notable asset: Tons and tons of F-Bombs. Yes, Melissa Rauch, that nice Bernadette from The Big Bang Theory (this is a safe space, you can admit you've watched a few episodes) had a whole bunch of fucks ready to drop all along, like a stealth B-2 F-bomber. »

Starring Zoe Lister-Jones and directed by Daryl Wein, "Consumed" is a new thriller that depicts a mother wrapped up in the battle between small town organic farmers and big corporations profiting from GMOs. Her mission is to find the root of her son's persistent rash. "We wanted to raise questions around the film and get people thinking," said the director. "The film isn't intended to vilify anyone. Instead its purpose is to enlighten those who are unfamiliar with the subject matter, and cause those who are already familiar with it to dig deeper." The movie also stars Victor Garber, Danny Glover, Anthony Edwards and "The Big Bang Theory" actor Kunal Nayyar. Watch the trailer above, courts of Yahoo!

Those who love the high-pitched Bernadette on The Big Bang Theory are going to get a whole heaping helping of her antics this spring when star Melissa Rauch takes the lead in the raunchy new comedy The Bronze. The film served as the opening night movie for this year's Sundance Film Festival, and some have called it a laugh riot. The first trailer has arrived, which also features a strong ensemble that includes Gary Cole, Thomas Middleditch and Cecily Strong.
Acclaimed short filmmaker Bryan Buckley directs this tale of a flawed female antihero. The movie has been compared to the hit HBO series Eastbound & Down, with Melissa Rauch starring as a once promising gymnast who has seen better days. She has no job, she still lives at home and she is firmly stuck in the past. But that's all about to change for the once Olympic hopeful named Hope Ann Greggory. »
