AMC’s megahit “The Walking Dead” has padded its already gaudy season-premiere totals with about 5 million viewers in just three days of DVR playback, according to Nielsen estimates, making the zombie skein the fall’s most-watched drama telecast on any network.
In “live plus same-day” numbers for last Sunday, the fourth-season opener of “Walking Dead” averaged an 8.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 17.29 million viewers overall — series and basic-cable records in both categories. But in “live +3″ (viewership done via time-shifting within three days of a telecast), “Dead” surged to an 11.4 demo rating and 22.37 million total viewers.
Among all primetime programs this fall, only “The Big Bang Theory” (22.82 million) and “Sunday Night Football” (22.77 million) have drawn more total viewers in Live+3. “Walking Dead” moved ahead of CBS’ “NCIS” (21.52 million in L+3) after lagging the veteran crime drama in the same-night numbers.
In adults 18-49, the 11.4 towers over everything else to air in primetime this fall. »

NBC is pressing control-alt-delete on "The It Crowd."
The network is once again trying to reboot the popular British comedy. According to Deadline, uber-producer Bill Lawrence ("Cougar Town," "Scrubs") has signed a deal for a put pilot (if it doesn't air, it earns a fee).
"The It Crowd" follows the workplace shenanigans of two tech support workers who a bit socially-inept. They have to deal with a new female boss, who is a bit computer-inept.
This is the second time NBC has tried to make an American version of "The It Crowd." In 2006, it picked up a pilot starring Joel McHale of "Community," but the series never filmed more episodes. McHale then headlined "Community," which went to run for six five seasons and a movie sixth season on Yahoo.
NBC is clearly looking to shore up its comedy lineup. With the departure of "Parks and Recreation" after this season, and »

Unless you religiously follow ratings data, there’s really no way to tell at any given time how safe your favorite shows are on TV. Yes, you may think just because a show is being talked about (Gotham) or it’s been on a few years (Revenge) that it might be totally safe from cancellation, but it’s a tricky time we live in these days in the TV world, and it’s hard to really ever declare anything fully safe. Except The Big Bang Theory. That show will outlive the apocalypse. That’s why I find SpoilerTV’s Cancellation Prediction Table so useful. It’s a constantly updating table that shows which shows have been cancelled, are on the verge or cancellation, are in danger, or are probably safe. Each show is assigned a number, and the higher the number, the better a chance they have of being cancelled, »
A Nielsen software error created a disjointed start to the season for the networks and ratings crunchers, but things started to get back to normal this week.
The measurement service on Thursday afternoon issued the complete primetime ratings data for the third week of the TV season (Oct. 6-12) — more than two days later than its usual Tuesday morning release.
The first 17 nights of the TV season were affected by the software glitch that inaccurately credited some shows (mostly on ABC) with the viewing totals of others. Nielsen acknowledged its error late last week and re-issued program averages for premiere week (Sept. 22-28). A bunch of ABC series were revised downward in the updated nationals, while some shows on the competition (including Fox’s new “Gotham” and CBS veteran “The Big Bang Theory”) were revised upward.
Nielsen says data for every night since last Thursday has been accurate, and complete »

Everyone's getting in on the streaming game: A day after HBO announced plans for a stand-alone HBO Go in 2015, CBS launched its own subscription service, CBS All Access, right this very second. For $6 a month, CBS All Access will offer full seasons of current and former CBS shows, as well as the ability to live-stream local CBS stations in various cities around the country. There are some pretty big caveats, though: You won't be able to watch past seasons of every CBS show (for shows like The Big Bang Theory, which is produced by Fox, you'll only be able to watch episodes from the current season), and you can't use the local-affiliates thing to watch football. There is some good news: This won't impact the CBS shows that are on other streaming services, so your plans for a Twin Peaks Netflix binge can continue uninterrupted. »

Apparently, stand-alone streaming services are now the “cool thing” to do if you’re a television network. Just one day after HBO announced that it will launch its own online streaming service in 2015 (meaning no cable subscription needed), CBS is also getting into the streaming game by launching its own on-demand streaming service, CBS All Access. By paying $5.99 per month, those who subscribe to CBS All Access will be able to watch thousands of episode from both current and previous seasons of their favorite CBS shows, such as The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, and Person of Interest. Additionally, classic shows like Star Trek, Twin Peaks, and Cheers will also be available to subscribers. “CBS All Access is another key step in the Company’s long-standing strategy of monetizing our local and national content in the ways that viewers want it,” said Leslie Moonves, President and CEO, »

Yesterday, HBO said our a la carte TV future was coming. Today, CBS said that it's already here. A day after HBO announced the vaguest of plans for a standalone streaming service, CBS not only announced specific plans for its own, but launched the thing.

The Good Wife without the tough, resourceful and mysteriously sexy Kalinda Sharma?

Yet as Panjabi plots her next move — she’s signed a deal with 20th Century Fox TV to headline a potential drama pilot for the 2015-16 TV season — Good Wife showrunners Robert and Michelle King will have to figure out a way for Kalinda to exit, if not gracefully, then at least dramatically. »

Today at a Time Warner investors meeting, Warner Bros.’ Chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara outlined an aggressive content strategy for the Studio aimed at increasing profits while “doubling down on outstanding content, working with the best talent and maintaining the culture that makes Warner Bros. so great.”

This summer, Warner Bros. set aside release dates for a batch of unknown DC films in an effort to create a shared cinematic universe for its superheroes, similar to Marvel and Disney’s comic book structure.
