‘Trolls’ Directors Hope Film Will Be an Antidote to ‘the Very Strange Election’

14 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The streets of Westwood were lined with rainbows as stars walked the colorful carpet for the premiere of DreamWorks’ “Trolls” on Sunday afternoon.

Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick posed for cameras and eager fans outside the Regency Theater, as many of the stars used the premiere to emphasize the importance of the film’s message of happiness and togetherness, especially in the current political climate.

Trolls” came about after DreamWorks Animation acquired the intellectual property rights for the Troll doll in 2013. The studio then approached directors Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn about making a movie.

“We came along and said we’d love to make a whole world for these creatures,” Mitchell explained to Variety. Mitchell and Dohrn came up with the idea that the trolls would be permanently happy and hugging each other.

“I think the internet is very judgmental, not to mention the very strange election coming up and social unrest. »

23 October 2016 6:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara told employees of the film and television studio that Time Warner’s upcoming sale to At&T will better position the company for growth and said he was “excited” about the deal.

“This transaction significantly accelerates the next stage in our evolution and promises to make all the great content we create and distribute even more powerful and valuable,” Tsujihara wrote in a company wide memo obtained by Variety.

Earlier this week, At&T secured a $85.4 billion agreement to acquire Time Warner in a stock and cash deal that values the media conglomerate behind Warner Bros., CNN, and HBO at $107.50 per share. In the memo, Tsujihara stressed that the telecom giant is committed to keeping key staff in place.

“At&T recognizes that the value of our brands and businesses depends upon the expertise of our team, and they are very committed to retaining the »

Half of Millennials Drop Shows They Think Aren’t Easy Enough to Watch

19 October 2016 3:20 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Millennials are watching a lot of video these days. They spend more than six hours of their precious daily 24 either watching TV or streaming video, according to new research from TiVo.

But while they’re spending more of their days than other generations enthralled by moving pictures, these younger viewers are also becoming a little more impatient when it comes to access to their content: 54% of the millennials surveyed by TiVo have stopped watching a show because it was too burdensome to access — i.e. not enough episodes were available to catch up on, episodes were behind a paywall or moved platforms, or the viewer encountered some other impediment.

Those shows were a mixed bag: some broadcast (“The Big Bang Theory”), some cable (“The Walking Dead”), some near their conclusion (“Game of Thrones”), according to Paul Stathacopoulos, TiVo’s VP of strategy and strategic research. TiVo knows what shows people dropped because they had 2,500 respondents write out »

The Big Bang Theory season 10 episode 5 review: The Hot Tub Contamination

18 October 2016 10:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Caroline Preece Oct 18, 2016

After a great last episode, The Big Bang Theory delivers a filler instalment with very few laughs...

This review contains spoilers.

10.5 The Hot Tub Contamination

Remember when I said that having Amy and Sheldon move in together on The Big Bang Theory would be a fun storyline bursting with storytelling opportunities? I may have spoken a little too soon.

This episode presents us with one possible result of the experiment, in which the couple decides to cohabitate for a five week trial run, and it feels less like a real episode and more like an overstuffed post-credits sting for last week's instalment. They're both difficult to live with, Sheldon can't compromise, and Leonard is desperate to keep his roommate across the hall and out of his newly found marital solitude. »

How Chuck Lorre Went From ‘Noble Failure’ to ‘Big Bang’ Success

18 October 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The first TV show that Chuck Lorre ever ran lasted five weeks. A sitcom about a Staten Island family, “Frannie’s Turn” premiered in what Lorre calls “the coveted Saturday 8 o’clock timeslot” on CBS.

Lorre had developed the show at the behest of his bosses on “Roseanne,” where he was a staff writer. He hadn’t liked the idea for the show, but he did like the faith that Marcy Carsey and Tom Werner had placed in him to develop and run it. When “Frannie’s Turn” was canceled, Lorre, believing he’d put that faith to waste, prepared for the worst.

“To my amazement Tom Werner said to me, ‘Well that was a noble failure. Let’s try something else,’” Lorre says. “And I was shocked, because I thought my career was over.”

His career was far from over. After that “noble failure,” Lorre, recipient of Variety’s Creative Leadership Award, went »

TV Ratings: ‘Big Bang Theory’ Wins, ‘Jane the Virgin’ Returns Up From Finale

18 October 2016 8:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“The Voice” helped push NBC to a win over CBS on Monday night, despite “The Big Bang Theory” growing a tenth of a point from last week in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic. “Big Bang” pulled in a 3.4 demo rating and 13.84 million total viewers for the Eye, while “Kevin Can Wait” held steady compared to last week with a 2.1 demo ratings and 8.67 million viewers.

“The Voice” pulled in a 2.6 demo rating from 8-10 p.m., and 11.1 million total viewers. “Timeless” at 10 drew a 1.5 and 6.06 million total viewers. (Perhaps a bit troubling: “Timeless” lost half a ratings point in the demo and 1.73 million viewers from its first half of the hour to the second.)

What didn’t help CBS was the premiere of “The Odd Couple” at 9:30, which returned to a 1.1 and 4.71 million total viewers, losing half a demo ratings point from “2 Broke Girls” at 9 (1.6 demo rating, 5.87 million total viewers). However, the »

18 October 2016 8:39 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Odd Couple was up two-tenths from its season-two finale, notching a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49.

Jane the Virgin, now paired with new CW addition Supergirl at 8 p.m., returned to a 0.4 rating. Supergirl (0.9

The Big Bang Theory Season 10 Episode 5 Review: The Hot Tub Contamination

17 October 2016 6:54 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Living with Sheldon has got to be hard. 

Leonard's managed to do it for years, but not on the same intimate level that Amy is currently. And on The Big Bang Theory Season 10 Episode 5, that difficulty starts to get to her.

This is one of those episodes that leaves me feeling a bit underwhelmed. Rather than listening to Amy and Sheldon complain about each other's habits, I think it would have been so much funnier and more satisfying to see those things play out.

When we're sleeping, she breathes on me. One night it got so bad I almost grabbed Toto and headed to the storm cellar.

On its final (for this year, anyway) Monday performance, The Big Bang Theory explored some real, human moments through its crazy characters. I mean, who better to explore the hardships of cohabitation with the opposite sex than Sheldon Cooper? As I said last year with the “Shamy” break-up, Big Bang Theory is best when it breaks up the status quo and does something new, and Amy and Sheldon’s living together certainly qualifies. This week on The Big Bang Theory: Sheldon and Amy struggle through the hardships of couples who are first moving in together, so Leonard and Penny help them through the situation with advice and

Tracy Morgan Comedy Series, Long a Project at FX Networks, Moves to TBS

17 October 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Even before his crippling and much publicized 2014 car accident, comedian Tracy Morgan had a ten-episode comedy series under order at Fxx. Now the latest iteration of that program will surface instead on rival TBS.

The Time Warner-owned cable network said it had picked up a ten-episode comedy series from Morgan. The untitled series is created and executive-produced by Jordan Peele of “Key & Peele,” along with John Carcieri. Morgan will also serve as executive producer, along with Eric and Kim Tannenbaum  and Joel Zadak of Principato Young, also an alumnus of Peele’s Comedy Central program.  The series is produced by Studio T, the in-house production studio for TBS and its sister outlet, TNT.

The premise is one that had been associated with the program slated for FX Networks, which the 21st Century Fox-owned outlet had discussed publicly as recently as January. After being released on good behavior from a 15-year prison stint, Morgan »
