Christine Baranski Gets Recognized More as ‘Leonard’s Mom!’ from The Big Bang Theory Than Any of Her Roles

26 February 2017 7:12 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Christine Baranski is used to fans approaching her on the street but she’s always surprised when most of them say the same thing to her.

“More often than not, they point to me and say, ‘Leonard’s mother!’ even though I appear infrequently as her on The Big Bang Theory,” Baranski tells People in this week’s issue. “The show is just such a megahit. There are worse things to be called, believe me.”

Claire Danes and Jim Parsons to Play Married Couple in Transgender Drama ‘A Kid Called Jake’

24 February 2017 3:24 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Homeland” star Claire Danes and “The Big Bang Theory’s” Jim Parsons will play a married couple in “A Kid Like Jake,” a transgender family drama adapted from a Lincoln Center play, TheWrap has learned. The film follows a couple raising a four-year-old son who prefers to dress up as a princess instead of G.I. Joe — a particularly poignant topic given President Donald Trump’s recent rollback of protections for transgender children. On Thursday, the administration reverse an Obama administration policy that allowed transgender schoolchildren to use restrooms corresponding with their gender identity. “Transparent’s” Silas Howard — one of Hollywood’s few transgender. »

Claire Danes, Jim Parsons to Star in Transgender Family Drama ‘A Kid Like Jake’ (Exclusive)

24 February 2017 1:45 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jim Parsons and Claire Danes are attached to star as a married couple in the family drama “A Kid Like Jake,” based on a celebrated Lincoln Center play, Variety has learned.

According to a plot description, the project is about a couple trying to raise a 4-year-old-son who prefers to dress up as a princess instead of G.I. Joe. The story is especially timely given widespread concerns about the rights of transgender youth in the United States. On Wednesday, President Trump rolled back protections for transgender students to use public-school bathrooms that correspond to their gender identity.

“A Kid Like Jake” will be adapted by Silas Howard (known for the TV series “Transparent”), one of only a few transgender directors in Hollywood.

Daniel Pearle wrote the screenplay, based on his 2013 stage play, about the Brooklyn couple, trying to find the »

The Big Bang Theory Review: “Comic-Con”, Growing Up Present a “Conundrum”

24 February 2017 12:33 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

After 10 seasons, it’s extremely difficult for shows to stay fresh and original. The Big Bang Theory still goes strong at this age because they continue the growth of their characters beyond reasonable expectation. Long ago, watching Big Bang in high school and college, I was sure that Penny and Leonard would never get married, or that Sheldon and Amy would never be able to have a physical relationship. But, just as the theme song dictates a brief evolution timeline, so the characters have also “evolved”, and “The Comic-Con Conundrum” was a perfect reflection of said evolution. This week on The Big Bang Theory: Raj puts

24 February 2017 9:17 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Fatal mistakes, parental linage and some big Comic-Con decisions were on the menu Thursday, with the latter ruling primetime again. Even against its final adjusted numbers of last week, The Big Bang Theory (2.8/10) topped Thursday in adults 18-49 and viewers, with 13.22 million tuning in. The rest of CBS' night saw The Great Indoors (1.5/5), Mom (1.4.5) and Life In Pieces (1.2/5) all down a tenth from their February 16 demo results. Struggling newbie Training Day (0.7/3)… »

TV Ratings: ‘Blacklist: Redemption’ Off to Sluggish Start, ‘Htgawm’ Up in Finale

24 February 2017 8:50 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As much as broadcast networks say that Nielsen’s Live+Same Day ratings are no longer of any real concern to them, there’s no denying that most midseason dramas have gotten off to a rocky start by that metric. “The Blacklist: Redemption,” the spinoff of James Spader-led “The Blacklist,” became the latest data point in that trend Thursday night. Coming out of its progenitor, “Redemption” notched a 0.8 in the 18-49 demographic and drew an average audience of 4.2 million viewers.

On the plus side for NBC, that was just one-tenth off in the demo from “The Blacklist,” which brought in a 0.9 and an audience of 4.92 million. Thursday comedies “Superstore” and “Powerless” inched down slightly from last week. “Superstore” notched a 1.1 and 3.54 million viewers, while “Powerless” drew a 0.7 and 2.3 million.

ABC cruised to its customary Shonda Rhimes-fueled victory. “Grey’s Anatomy” delivered a 2.0 in the demo and 7.61 million viewers, while »

10.17 The Comic-Con Conundrum

What’s that? An episode of The Big Bang Theory that doesn’t leave me frustrated and underwhelmed? Yes it’s true, I liked this episode. For the first time in a very long time, The Comic-Con Conundrum carries on a storyline from the previous week. Even more shockingly, it concerns Raj.

Sheldon is going through Raj’s finances (inc. penguin sponsorship and Pink Cheeks intimate waxing) and he quickly realises that he’s going to have to make some huge changes to his lifestyle. Putting Sheldon in charge of everything he spends, he’s told first that he »

The Big Bang Theory Season 10 Episode 17 Review: The Comic-Con Conundrum

23 February 2017 6:32 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

When The Big Bang Theory focuses on the geeky things in life, that's when it's at its best.

On The Big Bang Theory Season 10 Episode 17, Raj tries to earn money to buy a ticket to Comic-Con, while Penny tries to get out of going with the guys.

"The Comic-Con Conundrum" is one of the better episodes of this season. It manages to involve the entire gang without splitting up the stories too much, and it's both funny and endearing.

As much as I'd love to see Penny go to Comic-Con with Leonard, it makes more sense that they keep some things separate.

It's sweet that each of them is trying to make the other happy with their plans of going together, but it's Sheldon who's handing out the good relationship advice in this case.

So they're both trying to make each other happy, and the end result is that they make each other sad? »

Netflix has renewed Orange Is The New Black for Three more seasons.

Newswire: Average moviegoers want to give Best Picture to Hidden Figures

21 February 2017 3:27 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

With the Oscars less than a week away, the movie-loving world is well in the throes of a bout of award season prognostication, with everybody and their brother making their own guesses and picks for what they’ll be most disappointed to see get absolutely destroyed by La La Land this Sunday. (You can read our own speculation and hopes right here.) But what does the average moviegoer want to see take home the big prize this year?

Inspirational tales and rockets, apparently; that’s per a USA Today poll, in which Fandango was commissioned to find out which movie 8,000 moviegoers wanted to see win Best Picture. The answer: Hidden Figures, Theodore Melfi’s biographical tale of three African American women overcoming prejudice, hate, and Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory in order to thrive at Nasa in the 1960s. Starring Taraji P. Henson, the historical crowd-pleaser just ...
