Ratings: ‘Big Brother’ Dominates, ‘Astronaut Wives Club’ Up Thursday

31 July 2015 9:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Big Brother” was on the rise Thursday, teaming with repeats of “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mom” to keep CBS comfortably atop the night’s demo leaderboard.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Big Brother” averaged a 2.0 rating/8 share in adults 18-49 and 6.3 million viewers overall in the 9 o’clock hour, up a tick from last week and doubling up runner-up “Dateline” on NBC in 18-49. As the youngest-skewing broadcast show in its time period, “Brother” may have benefited from the departure of Fox drama “Wayward Pines,” which ended last week. CBS also was on top in the night’s opening hour with “The Big Bang Theory” (1.5/7 in 18-49, 7.2 million viewers overall) and “Mom” (1.1/5 in 18-49, 5.4 million viewers), and finished a close to NBC’s “Dateline” at 10 p.m. with “Under the Dome” (1.0/4 in 18-49, 4.6 million viewers overall), which was up slightly from last week (1.03 vs. 1.00) for a three-week high. »

Ratings: ‘Astronaut Wives Club’ Climbs, But CBS Wins Night With Rising ‘Big Brother’

31 July 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

ABC’s freshman drama “Astronaut Wives Club’ enjoyed a sizable ratings bump on Thursday night, but the liftoff wasn’t enough to put it past the orbit of CBS. According to preliminary numbers, CBS handily won the night thanks largely to “Big Brother,” which improved modestly in the key 18-49 demographic. Despite a primetime slate that was half repeats, CBS came in first in 18-49 demographic with a 1.4 rating/6 share and was also tops in total viewers with 5.7 million. Also Read: 'Boom!'

The Mindy Project Season 4: The Big Bang Theory’s Kunal Nayyar to Play Mindy’s Potential Husband

30 July 2015 8:21 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Could Mindy Lahiri be getting married to someone other than Danny Castellano this season on The Mindy Project? That looks to be the case, if Mindy’s parents have anything to say about it. As first reported by TVInsider, The Big Bang Theory‘s Kunal Nayyar will guest star in Season 4 of The Mindy Project as a potential husband for the hopelessly romantic doctor. However, a possible relationship with Nayyar’s character definitely doesn’t sound like the type of love story that Mindy wants. Per TVInsider, Nayyar will play Sendhil, a charming hedge fund manager that Mindy’s parents (the recently cast Ajay Mehta and Sakina Jaffrey) are consider for an arranged marriage to their daughter. But when Danny (Chris Messina) catches wind of this plan, he feels threatened and does everything he can to stop the deal. Between Mindy’s imagining of a life where she and Danny »

The Mindy Project is starting off Season 4 with a big bang.

According to TVInsider, which broke the news, Nayyar will play Sendhil, a successful hedge fund manager that Mindy’s parents (the recently cast Ajay Mehta and Sakina Jaffrey) think would make an ideal spouse for their daughter. (Methinks Danny will have something to say about that.)

Alex Reviews Pixels – A Film About Video Games For People Who Hate Video Games

29 July 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

Rating: ★★

The multiplexes are full of sequels for obscure superheroes. The high street is dominated by t-shirts adorned with obscure movie references. The most watched TV show in the Us is about a bunch of nerds. Yes, it sure looks like the geeks have inherited the Earth.

Except they haven’t. The McU and its ilk are slowly becoming less heterogeneous with each biannual release. Clothing is worn without a care for what it represents. And The Big Bang Theory has been laughing at, not with, its characters since Season 3. So, rather, the Earth has assimilated geek culture into the mainstream, sanitising it in the process.

Nowhere is this better seen than with Pixels. Ostensibly an adaptation of a beautiful little short by Patrick Jean (check it out here – it doesn’t deserve to have only a fraction of the views of the trailer for film it’s »

Weekly Ratings: ‘America’s Got Talent,’ ‘American Ninja Warrior’ Power NBC

29 July 2015 5:41 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The one-two punch of “America’s Got Talent” and “American Ninja Warrior” put NBC back on top of the ratings leaderboard last week, with the network also getting a nice boost from the return of “Last Comic Standing.”

In a summer when reality has ruled over scripted originals, NBC has prevailed in the weeks not dominated by major sporting events. Last week, according to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates, its 1.1 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 edged out Spanish-language network Univision (1.0/4) as well as rivals ABC (0.9/4), CBS (0.9/4) and Fox (0.8/3).

The Peacock also won in adults 25-54 and adults 18-34 while CBS led as usual in total viewers.

“America’s Got Talent” was on the low side of its summer range but still set the week’s pace in both 18-49 (2.3/9) and total viewers (10.50 million), while “American Ninja Warrior” surged 17% to match a three-year demo high (2.1/7 in 18-49, 6.68 million viewers overall).

It’s ‘Supergirl’ vs. ‘Gotham’ for Ad Dollars This Fall

27 July 2015 9:23 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Superman and Batman aren’t slated to square off until 2016, when Time Warner launches a big movie centered on their fight. Until then, fans might want to check out a different superhero contretemps.

Among a burgeoning slate of programs concerned with superheroes, Madison Avenue expects CBS’ “Supergirl” and Fox’s “Gotham” to duke it out Monday nights this fall for the audience most coveted by advertisers: young people who don’t skip past the commercials. According to a Variety survey of primetime commercial-ratings projections by three big media-buying shops, “Supergirl” is expected to eke out a lead of a mere tenth of a point over the Fox drama in so-called “C3” viewership among audiences between 18 and 49 years of age.

The upshot: “Supergirl” is expected to be the superhero series most likely to land the greatest number of ad-watching viewers in the coming season. “Gotham,” which depicts life in Batman’s »

Ratings: Fox’s ‘Wayward Pines’ Ends on Strong Note

24 July 2015 9:23 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox’s “Wayward Pines” ended its season on a high Thursday, standing as the night’s — and most likely the week’s — top-rated scripted original in the key young-adults demo. Also of note on Thursday was another season high for ABC’s “Rookie Blue,” even while skedmates “The Astronaut Wives Club” and “Mistresses” slid.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, Fox’s “Wayward Pines” averaged a 1.2 rating/5 share in adults 18-49 and 3.9 million viewers overall in the 9 o’clock hour, matching its high in the demo. “Wayward” was already summer’s top-rated scripted program in adults 18-49 with a 1.92 rating in “live+3,” and its finale should also stand as the full week’s No. 1 scripted original in “live plus same-day.” There’s been no word regarding a possible second season of the M. Night Shyamalan drama starring Matt Dillon.

Elsewhere, CBS won Thursday behind “Big Brother” (1.8/7 in 18-49, 5.8 million »

Ludacris is the latest high-profile star to snag a guest spot on the hit Fox series “Empire” for Season 2. The “Furious 7” actor took to Instagram Wednesday to share the news along with a first look photo from the set with series star Terrence Howard. Howard’s Lucious Lyon was sent to prison for murder at the end of the show’s first season, and from the looks of the photo, Ludacris will play a cop who crosses paths with him — at least at first glance.

10 largely forgotten UK sci-fi sitcoms

23 July 2015 3:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Remember Kinvig, Clone, Not With A Bang? These are the UK sci-fi sitcoms you’re unlikely to see on comedy best-of lists…

With E4 sci-fi comedy commissions, Tripped and Aliens, and in-development Channel 4 projects, Space Ark and Graham Linehan/Adam Buxton collaboration The Cloud, in the works, a new crop of sci-fi sitcom could be making its way to UK TV.

Making funny sci-fi on a small-screen budget is tough enough without the additional pressure of having to attract viewers more traditionally down-to-earth in their sitcom tastes. Sci-fi sets and effects can be seen as prohibitively expensive by comedy commissioners (which is perhaps why the best UK sci-fi sitcoms of recent years has been on BBC Radio), and the genre’s niche status doesn’t scream mainstream hit. Over the years, one or two stand-outs have managed to straddle the sci-fi and comedy TV worlds, but plenty more have stumbled in the attempt. »

ABC has released a 10-minute first look at The Muppets

22 July 2015 11:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Believe it or not, it took ABC a bit of convincing to give the Muppets their own show on the channel. In fact, Bill Prady (The Big Bang Theory), Bob Kushell (The Simpsons) and others made a 10-minute pilot to persuade the network that a more adult Muppets show should be green-lit. Although the video was never supposed to be released, ABC decided to treat fans and put it online, following it being shown at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

In terms of style, The Muppets will be similar to such mockumentaries as The Office and Parks and Recreation, which is an entirely new direction for the franchise.

The Muppets return to primetime with a contemporary, documentary-style show. For the first time ever, a series will explore the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, breakups, achievements, disappointments, wants and desires. »
