‘The Big Bang Theory’ Pays Tribute to Leonard Nimoy

2 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Leonard Nimoy never appeared in person on “The Big Bang Theory” but his name and that of “Star Trek’s” Mr. Spock are often referenced on the CBS comedy about a group of misfit physicists and engineers.

As such it is no surprise that the show took the opportunity to pay tribute to the actor, who died Feb. 27 at the age of 83, with Thursday’s episode.

Nimoy did lend his voice to the 2012 “Big Bang” episode “The Transporter Malfunction.” Another episode involved a storyline where Kaley Cuoco’s Penny gave Jim Parsons’ Sheldon the gift of a napkin used by Nimoy in the restaurant where she worked as a waitress.

In the end-credits space usually reserved for a message from exec producer Chuck Lorre on his Chuck Lorre Prods. vanity card, a black-and-white picture of Nimoy ran with the caption: “The impact you had on our show and on our lives is everlasting. »

Chuck Lorre Remembers Leonard Nimoy In ‘Big Bang Theory’ Vanity Card

2 hours ago | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Leonard Nimoy, who died last week, made a voice-over appearance on CBS’ The Big Bang Theory three years ago this week. That night, Penny (Kaley Cuoco) bought Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) a pair of Star Trek keepsake collectibles. Sheldon, of course, breaks his while playing with it and clandestinely tries to switch his toy with Leonard’s. Then Sheldon’s conscience — Nimoy’s voice — starts to get to nag at him. Tonight, series creator Chuck Lorre used… »

Review: USA's 'Dig' goes from Holy Land mystery to wholly bland dud

6 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Big Bang Theory" did an episode in which Amy ruins "Raiders of the Lost Ark" for Sheldon by pointing out that for all of the action and adventure, "Indiana Jones plays no role in the outcome of the story. If he weren’t in the film, it would turn out exactly the same." I've watched "Raiders of the Lost Ark" subsequently and, thankfully, Amy didn't actually ruin the movie. I can't dispute her regarding the main character's agency, but it's still an awesome movie, one of the genre's most thrilling achievements. You cannot, it turns out, ruin "Raiders of the Lost Ark" by pointing out a structure flaw. You also, fortunately, cannot ruin "Raiders of the Lost Ark" by doing a dreadful story about nefarious forces searching for the Ark of the Covenant, or Ark-adjacent artifacts. But if you could ruin "Raiders of the Lost Ark" merely by desecrating its dramatic objective, »

Weekly Ratings: ‘Walking Dead,’ ‘Empire’ Separate From the Pack

4 March 2015 5:47 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Last week was a busy one in primetime for premieres and finales — including the return of NBC’s “The Voice” and the exit of ABC’s hit rookie “How to Get Away With Murder” — but AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and Fox’s “Empire” were the clear standout performers.

The veteran zombie drama and first-year Fox soap, both of which wrap their seasons this month, continued their growth spurts last week and opened up some distance on the rest of the primetime field in the adults 18-49 demo, according to Nielsen estimates for the Feb. 22-March 1 frame.

“Dead” looked like it was finally losing some steam when it opened the second half of its fifth season last month with slightly depressed numbers opposite the Grammy Awards and “SNL Anniversary” special. But it bounced back a week ago opposite the Oscars and then jumped nearly another 10% on Sunday (to 7.5 in 18- »

Spanish Actress Fakes Instagram Persona by Photoshopping Other Stars' Pics

4 March 2015 4:08 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Spanish actress Anna Allen takes the phrase "fake it till you make it" to a new level.

Numerous news outlets are claiming the 32-year-old performer has been photoshopping her face on celebrities' bodies and reposting their pics on her Instagram as if they were her own. As of late, the Anna Allen Instagram account is not in service.

The actress' alleged web of lies was discovered when she started sharing pics from the Oscars.

According to formulaTV, Anna cropped Lupita Nyong'o's 2014 invitation to the Academy Awards and posted as her own on Instagram -- though failed to crop out the year. "So it's official," the caption reads, purportedly from Anna's account. "I'm invited to the Oscars!"

But her alter ego doesn't stop there. The actress also photoshopped her head on several celebrities, including Keira Knightley. She also, according to reports, photoshopped herself »

'Community' Season 6 Trailer Spoofs 'Avengers 2'

3 March 2015 10:42 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Exactly two weeks before the final season of Community kicks off on its new online home at Yahoo! Screen, we finally have the first trailer for Season 6. The footage clearly pays homage to Avengers: Age of Ultron, touting "allies" including new cast members Keith David as Elroy Patashnik, a retired scientist who joins the Greendale study group, and even a new educational format, with local prisoners "attending" classes at Greendale via Skype.

There will be plenty of changes in store for the community college thanks to the addition of Paget Brewster, who plays Francesca "Frankie" Dart, a consultant brought in to help whip Greendale into shape. Season 6 will be missing a few familiar faces though, with Yvette Nicole Brown leaving the show to take care of her ailing father, and Season 5 star Jonathan Banks also not returning, due to his commitment to AMC's Better Call Saul.

Community Season 6 Trailer Teases Greendale's Weirdest Year Yet

“Let’s keep Greendale weird,” Paget Brewster’s Frankie Dart urges in the new trailer for Community‘s sixth season.

And judging by the contents of the three-minute video, that’s not going to be difficult at all.

Ratings: NBC’s ‘Voice’ Dominates; Fox’s ‘Following’ Has Decent Return

3 March 2015 9:19 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox’s “The Following” kicked off its third season Monday with decent numbers, down from last year but above the recent timeslot average of “Sleepy Hollow.” Like everything else on the Monday schedule, though, it was devoured by NBC’s “The Voice,” which dominated the night despite slight demo declines from its week-earlier premiere.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen,the Kevin Bacon drama “The Following” averaged a 1.6 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 and 4.8 million viewers overall in the 9 o’clock hour — down 20% from its timeslot premiere a year ago but matching the show’s Monday average of last season. “Sleepy Hollow” did below a 1.6 with all six of its 2015 originals, including last week’s finale (1.4).

“Following” may have a tougher time in coming weeks, though, as its “Gotham” lead-in will be airing some repeats. Last night, “Gotham” cooled off some (2.0/6 in 18-49, 6.1 million viewers overall), declining 0.3 from its 2015 high set last week. »

TV Ratings: 'Voice' leads Monday as 'Following' premiere tops 'Sleepy Hollow'

3 March 2015 8:45 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Monday, March 2, 2015. "The Night Shift" posted week-to-week gains in total viewers to help (a tiny bit) NBC cap off an overall primetime win on Monday, while it was "The Voice" leading the network to its domination among young viewers (where "Night Shift" actually dropped).  Monday's big notable premiere was Fox's "The Following," which came in above last week's "Sleepy Hollow" finale, but far below last year's Monday premiere. ["The Following" premiered last year with a post-football Sunday airing. It'd be silly to compare anything to that.] If you want one last "Following" comparison, the Season 3 premiere was almost identical to last April's Season 2 finale. And "Gotham" slipped a little from last week for Fox. The night saw a small dip for "The Bachelor" with its "Women Tell All" special and a small bump from "Mike & Molly," CBS' only new program of the night. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, NBC averaged a 3.0 rating for Monday night, tops in the key demographic. ABC was »
