An earlier premiere date for new Jane Lynch comedy “Angel From Hell,” the debut of “Criminal Minds” spinoff “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” and the returns of “Undercover Boss” and “Mike & Molly” are among the highlights of the CBS midseason schedule, announced Monday by the network.

Kaley Cuoco Casually Celebrates Her 30th Birthday With Lions and Tigers

7 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Kaley Cuoco and her friends took the phrase "party animals" to a whole new level on Sunday while celebrating her 30th birthday. The Big Bang Theory actress, who split from husband Ryan Sweeting in September, was given a wild surprise when her pals whisked her away on a trip to the Black Jaguar White Tiger wildlife sanctuary in Mexico. Sure beats having a party, right? Kaley documented the whole weekend on Instagram, starting off with a photo of herself sipping wine on a plane with the caption, "2 planes, 12 best friends, one 30th bday, destination unknown = priceless." She then shared a bunch of sweet shots of herself interacting with the lions and tigers (no bears, sadly). Keep reading to see more photos from her epic birthday trip, and then see what she had to say about recently covering up her wedding tattoo. »

Supergirl Picked Up for Full Season By CBS

9 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It’s been a little over a month since Supergirl first took flight on CBS, and now the network has used its own set of powers to order a full season of the superhero drama. CBS announced Monday that it has picked up Supergirl for a full, 20-episode season (a typical full-season order is 22, but CBS is referring to this pickup as a “full season”). That means that Kara will continue soaring through the skies and taking down bad guys through this coming spring at the very least, and it also means that all of CBS’ four new series have received orders for more episodes, as Supergirl‘s full-season order follows full-season pickups of Limiltess and Life in Pieces and an order for five additional episodes of Code Black. As mentioned above, Supergirl premiered about a month ago on Oct. 26, where it debuted to 13 million viewers and a 3.1 rating, following The Big Bang Theory. »

Kaley Cuoco Turns 30: How the Birthday Girl Rebounded From Her Big Breakup and Seems Better Than Ever

9 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kaley Cuoco picked just the right time to get that tattoo covered up. The star of The Big Bang Theory, who today is celebrating the young-adult milestone of turning 30, shared a pic last week of herself undergoing the painful-looking process of having a sizable butterfly inked on her upper back, but it seemed clear that she considered every second of discomfort far preferable to being stuck with her wedding date in Roman numerals back there for posterity. In fact, we have a feeling that this kind of pain was nothing. Cuoco filed for divorce from husband Ryan Sweeting in September after two and a half years of marriage, their too-good-to-be-true union proving to be just that in the end. That »

Supergirl Gets a Full Season on CBS

9 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

CBS has picked up a full season of Supergirl for a total of 20 episodes (the show initially received a 13-episode order). Supergirl, starring Melissa Benoist as Superman's cousin Kara Danvers, had the biggest debut of any freshman show this fall, bringing in almost 13 million same-day viewers following a lead-in from The Big Bang Theory on October 26. The ratings have cooled significantly since then, settling in around 7 million viewers (the last episode brought in 7.19 million viewers). Either way, the show is a win for CBS because it's bringing in younger viewers for the network and solid reviews, with our TV critic Matt Zoller Seitz calling it a "very sweet, likable series." It looks like the good can triumph over evil after all. »

25 years ago today: Kathy Bates thoroughly creeped us out when ‘Misery’ opened in theaters

10 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

25 years ago today, Kathy Bates thoroughly creeped us out when her breakthrough film “Misery” opened in theaters. The film is based on the 1987 psychological horror novel by Stephen King about a famous author who’s rescued from a car crash by his fan (more like fanatic), Annie. Soon the romance novelist (played by James Caan) realizes Annie is less caretaker and more psychotic captor. “Misery” earned Bates an Academy Award for her role as Annie. She’s since returned to the genre that gave her an Oscar with a starring role in Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story.” Bates recently showed how much she embraces the legacy of her “Misery” character when she told Entertainment Weekly, “‘I decided when I die, it’s going to be Kathy ‘Misery’ Bates. You know how they do, in People magazine, it’ll be ‘Kathy ‘Misery’ Bates passed away.’” Other notable November 30 happenings in pop culture history. »

Football, Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade Score Big Ratings Thursday

27 November 2015 12:52 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC scored early and late on Thanksgiving with the Macy’s Parade and primetime football, while CBS notched the day’s highest rating with its helping of late-afternoon NFL action.

According to Nielsen’s metered market overnights, NBC’s coverage of the 89th annual “Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade” delivered a 12.6 household rating/27 share, down a tick from last year but standing as the top non-sports telecast of the fall season. The previous high had been the Nov. 15 episode of “60 Minutes” on CBS, which did a 12.5.

The parade registered a strong 7.0 rating in adults 18-49, according to the 25 Nielsen markets with local people meters, up a tenth from last year and the second highest in the last dozen years. This is also the second best of the fall television season excluding sports, behind only the Oct. 11 season premiere of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” (7.4).

18 Times Penny Was the Best Part of 'The Big Bang Theory'

27 November 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »


Penny might be the only member of her squad that doesn't have an advanced degree or a firm grasp of string theory and microbiology, but that doesn't mean we should show her any less love. The first lady of "The Big Bang Theory," played by the lovely Kaley Cuoco, is witty, adorable, and chock full of epic Sheldon burns. We're all for watching nerds do their hilarious nerd things on TV, but let's give it up for the always-endearing Penny too. Here are 18 times she was the best part of "The Big Bang Theory."

Weekly Ratings: NBC Rolls, Caps Dominant November in Demos

25 November 2015 5:34 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A nice premiere for “Chicago Med” teamed with winning results for “The Voice,” “Blindspot” and “Sunday Night Football” to lift NBC to another victory in the young-adults demo and helped cinch another November sweep victory for the network.

NBC, which won for an eighth time in nine weeks this fall in adults 18-49, prevailed for a fourth straight November sweep, according to preliminary estimates for the ratings period which ends tonight. And its margin of victory over the second-place finisher (21% ahead of Fox) would be the largest for any network in 19 years.

With three nights to be counted (through Sunday), NBC led in adults 18-49 with a 2.3 “live plus same-day” rating, followed by Fox (1.9), CBS (1.8), ABC (1.7), Univision (0.8), CW (0.6) and Telemundo (0.5). The Peacock also is poised to prevail in adults 25-54 (2.9 vs. 2.5 for CBS) and adults 18-34 (1.7 vs. 1.4 for Fox) while CBS cruised in total viewers (9.6 million vs. 8.1 million for NBC »

24 November 2015 5:00 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Kaley Cuoco split from her husband, Ryan Sweeting, in September, and this week she made the breakup official - in ink. The Big Bang Theory star took to Instagram on Tuesday to share photos while covering up her tattoo of their wedding date - Kaley and Ryan tied the knot nearly two years ago on New Year's Eve 2013 after a whirlwind romance, and the actress commemorated her big day with the ink on her back. In the first snap, Kaley sits in the artist's chair wearing sunglasses and a scowl, and wrote, "Thank you @nero_sct @studiocitytattoo for helping me right my wrongs," cryptically adding, "Note to self - do not mark your body with any future wedding dates #under30mistakes #donttakeyourselftooseriouslykids."

Ratings Update: ‘Monday Night Football’ Strong; ‘Blindspot,’ ‘Supergirl’ Hit Lows

24 November 2015 9:06 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Updated With Finals: The Monday kicking off a holiday week produced lower-than-usual same-night ratings numbers for top shows NBC’s “The Voice” and “Blindspot,” with the former impacted by the final performance episode of competing reality series “Dancing With the Stars” on ABC and the latter dropping to a low even with its fall finale. Also on the decline and hitting a low was CBS rookie “Supergirl,” which is now delivering a young-adult audience on par with CW’s “The Flash” and only a little ahead of Fox’s “Gotham.”

Impacting the broadcast networks on Monday was an above-average “Monday Night Football” game on Espn. Its Buffalo Bills-New England Patriots matchup averaged a 5.1 rating in adults 18-49 (a four-week high in the demo) and 14.26 million viewers overall. The game had hit a season high in the overnights with a 10.0 household rating, but that didn’t hold up in the nationals »

After a Rough Film Year, Can Kevin Tsujihara Lead Warner Bros. Back to the Top?

24 November 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Kevin Tsujihara ascended to the top executive suite at Warner Bros. Entertainment, he inherited a gold-plated legacy.

For decades, the fabled studio of Humphrey Bogart and Bette Davis maintained its dominance in the Hollywood pecking order, and held the promise of staying there — in recent years on the backs of such lucrative franchises as “Harry Potter” and “The Dark Knight.”

But in today’s high-stakes, competitive landscape, sustaining that lofty perch has proven excruciatingly difficult.

R. Kikuo Johnson for Variety

In the 2½ years since Tsujihara was named chairman and CEO, and took command of Warners’ massive ship, the company has been riding a sea of fundamental change. Entertainment is being consumed around the globe at record levels, but exactly when, where and how that happens has become more fluid in a rapidly shifting industry — making the job of any Hollywood chieftain more complex and perplexing than ever.

Consequently, Tsujihara »

The Big Bang Theory season 9 episode 9 review: The Platonic Permutation

24 November 2015 6:24 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




It's The Big Bang Theory season 9's Thanksgiving episode, which sees some movement in the Sheldon and Amy impasse...

This review contains spoilers.

9.9 The Platonic Permutation

We're nearing the half-way point of The Big Bang Theory season nine, demonstrated by the Thanksgiving theme of this episode, and it's about time for the writers to figure out what the heck they're doing with Sheldon and Amy. Both characters are as big a part of the show as they ever were, and many episodes have been expressly about exploring the fallout from their breakup but, prior to The Platonic Permutation, we were seemingly no closer to a resolution.

As said, this has now changed, and we've witnessed an almost 360-degree turnaround on the dynamic between the two. They're now friends, but Amy is the pursuer rather than the pursued. It appears as if something broke in Sheldon when he »
