Joel McHale wants Community fans to keep the faith: "I really do think there'll be a movie"

14 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Joel McHale wants fans of Community to keep the faith that a movie spinoff will be made.

The comedy series recently wrapped up its sixth season on Yahoo, leaving only a big-screen spinoff left to fulfil the show's 'Six Seasons and a Movie' mantra.

Although Yahoo recently hinted at a possible seventh season of Community, McHale told Esquire that more episodes are unlikely.

"All of our contracts ended this season. They would have to significantly increase some of the pay of some of the actors, I think," he explained.

"For so long, we were on NBC against The Big Bang Theory and we would get some numbers which were actually very helpful to the Thursday night numbers, but they cancelled us.

"And thank God for Yahoo! Screen. I really do think there'll be a movie."

McHale went on to say: "I think what has to happen is that [creator] Dan [Harmon] needs to write the script. »

Comic Con 2015: What We Know

27 June 2015 3:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last year, just before the Comic-Con schedule was announced, I tried to predict some of the big surprises that the studios would spring on us in San Diego. As it turns out, I was actually right about a few of them (the first Mad Max: Fury Road trailer, first look at Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), but there were so many more, like Legendary announcing Godzilla 2 and Kong: Skull Island, Bruce Campbell returning for Ash Vs. Evil Dead and Biz Markie's "Just a Friend" performance. With the con just a few weeks away, the official schedule is starting to roll out, day by day, with some big stuff happening in Hall H. Of course, many studios started announcing their panels weeks ahead of time, but now, the "big picture," as it were, is starting to come together. Although this Con picture is much different than years past. »

Weekly Ratings: NBA Finals, Strong Start for ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ Keep ABC on Top

24 June 2015 6:04 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Monster numbers for the concluding game of the NBA Finals helped ABC stay atop the primetime ratings leaderboard for a third straight week, but the net also got nice contributions from new series.

The premiere of “Celebrity Family Feud,” which last aired in primetime on NBC in 2008, performed very well on Sunday (2.4 rating/10 share in adults 18-49, 8.66 million viewers overall), edging out NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” as the week’s No. 1 series telecast in 18-49, according to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates.

The 2.4 rating is the best for any summer series launch since CBS’ “Under the Dome” two years ago, and the best for a summer unscripted series since NBC’s “The Voice” results show in June 2011. In total viewers, meanwhile, the Alphabet bagged its largest regular-series audience in the Sunday-at-8 hour in 10 years.

“Feud” was followed by the premiere of “Battlebots” (1.9/7 in 18-49, 5.44 million viewers overall), which was the No. »

Ratings: ABC’s ‘Astronaut Wives Club’ Launches Ok By Summer Standards

19 June 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC’s “The Astronaut Wives Club” launched in unspectacular fashion Thursday, faring Ok by low-bar summer standards but still finishing behind an hour of repeat CBS comedies and and newsmagazine “Dateline” on NBC.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Astronaut Wives Club” averaged a 1.1 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 and 5.5 million viewers overall from 8 to 9 p.m., putting it on par with NBC’s bow of “Aquarius” in May and a tick above where Fox’s “Wayward Pines” bowed earlier in the month. ABC did better on June 1 with the premiere of “The Whispers” (1.5 rating in 18-49, 5.66 million viewers overall), though it benefited from a sizable lead-in courtesy of “The Bachelorette.” In a positive sign for the show, it was up in its second half-hour in just about every category.

Period dramas have been a tough sell for audiences over the years, and they tend to skew older than other hourlongs. »

Thursday Ratings: Viewers orbit 'Astronaut Wives Club' premiere but CBS leads

19 June 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Thursday, June 18, 2015. ABC got a decent premiere for "The Astronaut Wives Club" and a weaker two-hour premiere for "Mistresses," but original dramas and even Fox sports coverage were no match for CBS' three hours of repeats, which led Thursday in most measures. Other Thursday notables included another small dip for NBC's "Aquarius" and flatness for "Hannibal" and "Beauty and the Beast." Fox's Us Open golf coverage wasn't a factor. Let's get to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, CBS had a 1.1 rating for Thursday night, tops in the key demographic. ABC's 0.9, NBC's 0.8 and Fox's 0.7 followed in the key demo, while The CW averaged a 0.2 key demo rating for the night. Overall, CBS averaged an estimated 5.28 million viewers and a 3.4 rating/6 share for Thursday primetime. ABC was second with 4.37 million viewers and a 3.1/6 for the night, topping NBC's 2.6/5 and 3.8 million viewers. Fox averaged 2.855 million viewers and a 1.8/3, followed »

Weekly Ratings: ABC Slam-Dunks Rivals With NBA Finals

17 June 2015 5:42 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC had more of the top-rated shows, but three games of the NBA Finals helped make ABC the dominant primetime network in key demos last week, according to Nielsen estimates.

This year’s finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors was on track to become the highest-rated ever on ABC, which began airing the event in 2002. Last week’s three contests were the top three programs in the adults 18-49 demo, with both Thursday and Sunday’s games averaging  7.6 rating, and Tuesday’s Game 3 close behind (7.3).

Pro basketball’s championship round also occupied the top three spots on the total-viewer rankings, with Sunday’s Game 5 drawing the most viewers (20.86 million) — the largest audience for a Game 5 of the NBA Finals since 2004 (Lakers-Pistons). This year’s five-game average of 19.3 million was up a hefty 24% vs. last year’s Miami-San Antonio series (15.6 million) and this Finals is expected to finish »
