The Big Bang Theory season 8 episode 10 review: The Champagne Reflection

35 minutes ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Season 8 cements its status as the most contemplative run of Big Bang Theory episodes so far with The Champagne Reflection...

This review contains spoilers.

8.10 The Champagne Reflection

A week after commenting on the comparative seriousness of The Big Bang Theory season eight, the show offers up The Champagne Reflection, probably the most contemplative of the season. It didn't have any of those big, character or relationship-defining moments usually present in the show's best episodes, but did have a lot to say about some little things.

There's nothing that can remind you of your mortality more than having someone you relate to pass away, and that's pretty much what Leonard, Howard and Raj's storyline amounts to in the episode. Tasked with clearing out the office of another professor – one who never achieved anything worthy of the champagne his mother had bought him 50 years earlier – the guys ponder how they would feel »

The Big Bang Theory: Season Eight Ratings

21 November 2014 12:37 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

There's certainly no chance of The Big Bang Theory being cancelled any time soon. The very popular sitcom's already been renewed through season 10. Will season eight be the series' biggest or worst season yet? Stay tuned.

The Big Bang Theory revolves around a group of geeky scientists, their friends and significant others. The castmembers are Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Melissa Rauch, and Mayim Bialik.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

‘How to Get Away With Murder’ Goes Out On a High as ABC Dominates Thursday

21 November 2014 10:36 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Update: In updated Nielsen estimates released Friday afternoon, ratings leader ABC was the only broadcaster whose demo ratings didn’t budge. In total viewers, the final counts were 8.33 million for “Grey’s Anatomy,” 10.15 million for “Scandal” and 9.82 million for “How to Get Away With Murder.”

Univision’s coverage of the Latin Grammy Awards averaged a 2.0 rating/6 share in adults 18-49 and 4.8 million total viewers — up more than 10% in both categories vs. last year. It ranked No. 2 among all broadcasters in adults 18-34 (behind only ABC), and Univision was the No. 1 broadcaster in 18-49 during the Latin Grammys in Los Angeles, Miami, Houston, Dallas and Phoenix.

As expected CBS and NBC saw the most revisions due to preemptions/delays for an NFL game. “The Big Bang Theory” edged up (4.1/13 in 18-49, 14.61 million viewers overall), while “Mom” (2.5/8 in 18-49, 10.19 million viewers overall) and “Two and a Half Men” (2.2/6 in 18-49, 8.62 million viewers overall) came down a bit. »

TV Ratings: 'Scandal,' 'Murder' midseason finales lead Thursday as 'Big Bang' dips

21 November 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Thursday, November 20, 2014. Midseason finales for "Scandal" and "How To Get Away With Murder" helped ABC win Thursday night both overall and among young viewers, as a low "Big Bang Theory" and increasingly weak "McCarthys" and "Elementary" numbers pushed CBS into second. Note that ratings for Thursday are a bit catawampus due to scattered 8 p.m. hour preemptions for President Obama's immigration address.  In addition, CBS had the NFL preemption in the Bay Area, while NBC had the NFL preemption in Kansas City. That would probably explain why NBC's numbers appear to be skewed high. On to Thursday's numbers... Among adults 18-49, ABC averaged a 2.9 rating for Thursday night, comfortably beating the 2.1 rating for CBS in the key demographic. NBC was second with a 1.3 key demo rating, followed by Fox's 1.0 key demo rating. The CW averaged a 0.6 key demo rating for the night. Overall, ABC averaged »

Why major Us TV networks didn't show Obama's immigration address

21 November 2014 6:06 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

CBS, NBC, ABC and Fox stick with hit primetime showsSpanish-language channel Univision did carry the addressObama to unveil immigration plan that could shield millionsLive blog: Republicans hint at reprisals over immigration

On Thursday evening, President Obama took to the airwaves to present his plan for immigration reform to the American people. Unfortunately, many of the American people were not able to find him.

At 8pm, instead of seeing the president outlining his long-awaited overhaul of one of the country’s most hotly debated issues, ABC viewers were treated to an episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Those tuning in to CBS were presented with an episode of The Big Bang Theory; Fox network viewers saw Bones; and viewers tuning to NBC were be able to enjoy The Biggest Loser: Glory Days.

New TV Shows Could Break Into Crowded SAG Awards

20 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One thing you’ve got to hand to the SAG TV voters, they’re loyal to a fault. When it comes to the categories for individual acting, once they find someone they like, they stick with them.

Each year a host of veterans, not to mention a steady stream of series newcomers, is forced into the cold by familiar, entrenched names in comedy and drama alike.

So amidst the universal mourning for the “Breaking Bad” and “30 Rock” finales, there must have been a certain amount of secret glee among thesps. After all, the spot Bryan Cranston occupied in male actor, drama, for five consecutive years is now open for business, as are Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey’s in the comedy division, where they competed, and usually triumphed, a total of 15 times.

Opening up Cranston’s slot is particularly tantalizing, since the drama field is crowded indeed. Steve Buscemi of »

Weekly Ratings: Three-Show Crossover Stunt Lifts NBC to Top

19 November 2014 5:48 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC took the sweeps staple of crossover storylines to a new level last week, as a running plot involving characters from the net’s three Dick Wolf dramas produced a ratings surge for each show. The stunt, along with “Sunday Night Football,” “The Blacklist” and three nights of “The Voice” carried the Peacock to a ratings victory in key demos.

In a down week for CBS, NBC also scored a rare victory in total viewers —  its first for a full week in the November sweep since 2002, and its first in any sweep month (excluding Olympics weeks) since the week of the “Friends” finale in May 2004.

“Sunday Night Football,” featuring a great quarterback matchup between Tom Brady’s New England Patriots and Andrew Luck’s Indianapolis Colts produced strong ratings (7.1/19 in 18-49, 20.82 million viewers overall), standing as the week’s No. 2 primetime show in 18-49 and No. 1 in total viewers, according to Nielsen. »
