Now in its 27th year, SXSW is like the late bloomer who stuns his parents by announcing his basement-based online venture is now worth a million bucks. The Austin, Texas-based festival isn’t glamorous, like Cannes, or corporate, like Toronto, or even insistently anti-Hollywood, like Sundance. Compared to its more-pedigreed rivals, SXSW is simply more chill. It puts the festive back in festival — there’s a giant music and growing interactive element as well — and artists of all sorts are eager to come to the party. Jimmy Kimmel Live will broadcast there for a week. Lady Gaga will drop in. »

CBS dominated Thursday’s ratings race, as its comedies “The Big Bang Theory,” “The Millers” and “Two and a Half Men” all were at the high end of their range while ABC’s dramas “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” cooled off after their hot returns one week earlier. It was also a good night for CW’s “Reign,” which was up 25% or more across the board, but a bad one for Fox’s “American Idol,” which hit a low with its results show.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “The Big Bang Theory” (5.2 rating/17 share in adults 18-49, 17.9 million viewers overall) was easily the night’s No. 1 program, up from last week and matching its season high. It was followed by “The Millers” (3.0/9 in 18-49, 11.8 million viewers overall), which retained a stronger-than-usual percentage of its lead-in, and “Two and a Half Men” (2.7/8 in 18-49, 10.5 million viewers overall), which drew »

The continued strength of The Big Bang Theory and the new comedy The Millers helped CBS to take Thursday in the key demo and viewers. Bang posted a 5.2 rating, up 4% from last week, which provided a sweet lead-in for The Millers (3.0, 11% from last week), according to Nielsen.
Even though The Crazy Ones at 9:30 tied its series low at 1.7, CBS still won the night in 18-49 with a 2.7 and with viewers (10.6 million).

Fast National ratings for Thursday, March 6, 2014
Per usual, "The Big Bang Theory" and "Scandal" were among Thursday's top shows in the ratings. But while "Big Bang" was up a little bit over its performance last week, "Scandal" took a hit in its second episode back from hiatus.
The strong performance from "Big Bang" helped "The Millers" and "Two and a Half Men" as well, with the latter scoring its best numbers since its season premiere. At ABC, "Grey's Anatomy" joined "Scandal" in dipping week to week. "Parks and Recreation" and "Parenthood" each rose slightly for NBC, as did "The Vampire Diaries" on The CW. "American Idol" dropped slightly for Fox.
CBS averaged 10.7 million viewers and a 6.6 rating/11 share in households for the night. Fox (6.64 million, 4.2/7) narrowly beat ABC (6.58 million, 4.6/8) for second. NBC came in fourth with 3.3 million viewers and a 2.1/3, and The CW (2 million, 1.3/2) trailed.
CBS also led the 18-49 demographic with a 2.7 rating. »

Fast National ratings for Thursday, March 6, 2014. With "The Big Bang Theory" leading the way in all measures, everything in CBS' schedule was up on Thursday other than "The Crazy Ones," as the network ruled the night in all measures. Fox's "American Idol" didn't take a big drop, but it was down slightly, failing to even make things competitive with "The Millers" ("Big Bang Theory" has had a massive advantage for a while) and again leading into a weak week for "Rake," which is being shipped off to Fridays. After last week's big returns, both "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal" took big drops for ABC, but still easily won their hours in young viewers. It didn't help that "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" barely made a ripple in its return. Speaking of barely making a ripple, other than a solid bump for "Parks and Recreation," NBC's whole lineup barely made a ripple. »

Review Juliette Harrisson 7 Mar 2014 - 13:51
The Big Bang Theory remains fresh and funny well into its seventh year. Here's Juliette's review of this week's episode...
This review contains spoilers.
7.17 The Friendship Turbulence
In this week’s Big Bang Theory, Leonard manages to be genuinely supportive of Penny’s acting career, Amy tries to help Raj get a date and Sheldon ends up holding hands with Howard longer than he ever has with Amy thanks to some well-timed turbulence.
Leonard opens this episode once again frustrating Penny with his inability to understand her choices in a career that’s quite different from his own and a situation in which it’s impossible to see what is, ultimately, the best thing to do. He makes up for it, though, by coming to her rescue at the end of the episode with the sort of grand, financially-based romantic gesture rarely seen outside of Jane Austen novels. »
The Mend, from director John Margary is featured in the Narrative Feature Competition. Only eight films were selected to premiere at SXSW, out of 1,324 submissions.
“One night in Harlem, sour, aging Mat reunites with his younger brother Alan, just before Alan heads out for a long-planned vacation with his live-in girlfriend Farrah. Only days later, much sooner than expected, Alan returns home from his vacation to find his apartment commandeered by Mat, Mat’s girlfriend and Mat’s girlfriend’s son. As doors slam and the power gives out and the threads of family fray, a mystery lingers: why has Alan returned home without Farrah,” reads the official description.
From episode to episode, a lot of chatter surrounding "The Big Bang Theory" this season -- the show's seventh -- has been focused on the emotional journey of Jim Parsons' Sheldon Cooper, as the show has been quite remarkably intent on challenging the character to grow and mature. The attention the storyline is receiving is entirely justified, as it's rare for a show like this to allow its central character to continue to evolve this late in its run.
But in all that, another surprising emotional journey has gotten a bit overlooked. I'm talking, of course, about Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting). This season has seen the aspiring actress take stock of her professional situation, go for broke by quitting her job as a waitress and devote all of her time and energy on landing that breakthrough role.
In Thursday's (March 6) episode, reality has begun to sink in for Penny. Having »
S1 E6, The Middle Earth Paradigm
As if it weren't already obvious, my favorite holiday is Halloween. I have so many fond memories of spending weeks - sometimes months - planning the perfect costume, hitting up thrift shops for clothing, handcrafting accessories, and planning the perfect route to get through town and hit every house in the two hours allotted for trick or treating. Even now, I still rush home from work so I can dress up and take my kids out without a care of what anyone thinks of me (my profile picture represents one of my better costumes). Sure, Christmas and Thanksgiving are great, but neither has a section at the department store filled with zombies, monsters and skulls (one usually has to make their own zombie Santas).
While Halloween is a holiday for pretty much everyone, we nerds revel in it. So when Penny invites the boys »
South by Southwest 2014 kicks off this week with a terrific slate of indie comedies and dramas (here are our ten most anticipated films of the fest). We've got the first look at one of them: "We'll Never Have Paris," from directors Jocelyn Towne and Simon Helberg (who wrote the film). The film stars Helberg -- who also stars in TV's "The Big Bang Theory," if you're into that -- as Quinn, a neurotic mess of a man in a quarter-life crisis that explodes when a coworker (Maggie Grace) confesses her love for him mere moments before he was to propose to his girlfriend (Melanie Lynskey). And so, Quinn up-and-leaves his longtime partner for a brush with love -- regretting his decision almost instantly. Helberg's directorial debut also stars Zachary Quinto, Alfred Molina and Jason Ritter. Check out the poster debut below. »

Things aren't going so well for the Kardashian family. Kim Kardashian's sisters Khloé and Kourtney were both robbed recently, and they reportedly think it was "an inside job." Kourtney found $50,000 in cash missing from her home last month, while Khloé recently discovered that $250,000 worth of jewelry was missing from the home she used to share with Lamar Odom. Khloé discovered the theft while cleaning out the home with her mother, Kris Jenner, as they prepared the property to be taken over by its new owner, The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco. Police reportedly think that the two thefts are connected and might have something to do with Lamar, although the connection has yet to be made clear. The robberies might explain why Kim and her family started to use exterior shots of different homes on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. A fan recently asked Kim why the family »

NBC’s Constantine pilot has completed casting. Harold Perrinau will play an angel who watches over John Constantine and True Blood alum Lucy Griffiths (she played Eric‘s sister) is an “offbeat young lady” who joins forces with Constantine.
Aubrey Peeple, who plays Layla on Nashville talked with TV Guide about her character’s relationship with closeted singer Will, ” I think that him being good for her career was a huge factor in why they got together. But at this point … she’s totally head over heels for him, because she’s 19. There will always be that aspect of her career that drives her, and that’s what comes first. But she’s a hormonal teenager. She’s in love with him now.” Peeple also hints that Will and Layla’s storyline should get some major developments soon.
I just want Trent back on the show.

The messed-up machinations of bored, oversexed stepsiblings Kathryn Merteuil and Sebastian Valmont aren’t quite as shocking in 2014 as they were when Cruel Intentions was released on March 5, 1999. (Blame Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, and a zillion other glitzy/scandalous imitators.)
That said, Cruel Intentions is still an enormously entertaining teen movie, even 15 years (gulp) after its initial release — thanks to an uncommonly sharp script, a killer soundtrack, and, most importantly, an impeccable cast, which featured future Oscar winners and future Sharknado stars alike. Well, one of each, but you get the picture. Whoever headed up this franchise had a »
