Could Malcolm Be Arrow's Killer? Did Grey's Doc Jo Say No? Did Originals' Newbie Vamp Do a 180? And More Qs

3 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including The Originals, Supergirl, The X-Files and The Big Bang Theory!

1 | On The Originals, does it feel like Cami had a personality transplant when she became a vampire, rather than her emotions just being amplified?

Ratings: ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Solid, But Other Tgit Dramas Return Lower for ABC

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A lack of buzz, no on-air presence for three months and an overall slumping performance of late for the network conspired to bring down numbers for ABC’s returning Tgit dramas last night. The Alphabet did earn a tie with Fox’s “American Idol” for the night’s lead in young adults, thanks largely to a still-potent “Grey’s Anatomy,” but “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder” sagged from their fall numbers and were significantly cooler than a year ago.

The competition seemed largely unfazed by the return of ABC’s femme-friendly dramas, with most shows on par or within a tenth of their week-ago averages. CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” the night’s No. 1 show, appears to be up from last week, while recent NBC drama addition “Shades of Blue” held steady.

Thursday’s entertainment programs faced competition from the latest presidential primary debate, this one on the Democratic side. »

Martha Thomases: Jughead’s Sex Life

10 hours ago | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This column is going to make me sound old.  Really really really old.

In the new issue of Jughead by Chip Zdarsky and Erica Henderson, Jughead comes out as asexual.  As I write this, it hasn’t yet appeared on the stands, but I’ve loved the series so far and I’m really looking forward to it.  Still, the news sent me on a tour of the Internet to exciting new avenues of political correctness.

(Note:  I want to be politically correct here.  I am trying to understand people who are new to me, and I want to be polite and respectful.)

The first thing I found out is that this isn’t even really news.  Comicbook.com had the story way back on September 25.  My first reaction was surprise that this didn’t show up on any of my feeds at that time.  My second reaction was admiration »

Hello everyone, and welcome to Dr. Sheldon Cooper and Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler present: Dr. Sheldon Cooper’s Fun with Flags. I’m only kidding, but don’t you wish that was really a show you could call in to? Sounds like fun to me. This episode had lots of ups and downs for our characters, and set up some what are sure to be lengthy emotional journeys for several characters. The Big Bang Theory has been killing it with the emotional arcs lately, so I’m extremely optimistic that they will continue to do so. This week on The Big Bang Theory: Raj makes up his

CBS’ Leslie Moonves Predicts Big Upfront For C7 Deals

11 February 2016 3:14 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS Corp. chief Leslie Moonves is feeling bullish about the health of the network TV advertising business going in to the upfront selling season, despite global economic jitters that haven driven so much volatility on Wall Street this year.

Moonves, discussing CBS’ fourth-quarter earnings Thursday on a conference call with analysts, said the second quarter of this year was looking strong, with scatter pricing growing every month well over the upfront rates set last summer. That dynamic should funnel more dollars into this year’s upfront.

“I think it’s going to be substantially higher than it has been in the past year,” Moonves said of this year’s upfront. He chalked it up to simple math: “A guy who bought ads from CBS in October paid nearly 20% more than he would have if he’d bought them from us in July (during the upfront),” he said.

Actors Armie Hammer and Dev Patel are in negotiations to join Hotel Mumbai, a drama film centering around the 2008 terrorist attacks on the Taj Mahal hotel in Mumbai. The screenplay, written by John Collee and Anthony Maras, was inspired by the documentary Surviving Mumbai, which told the story of the 68 hours in which hundreds of people were held hostage by armed Pakistani militants amidst the destruction of the hotel.

Also in negotiations are Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones), Anupam Kher (Silver Linings Playbook), Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory), Teresa Palmer (The Choice), and Nazanin Boniadi (Homeland). Hotel Mumbai is set to go into production this August in India and Australia, with Anthony Maras set to direct the project.

8 TV Shows That Owe Their Longevity To Boobs

11 February 2016 12:48 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

CBS

The key to every long-running television show in the history of the medium is, above all else, consistency. Why is Days of Our Lives still on the air? Because although it delivers ridiculous, trashy, mostly meaningless storylines (there’s no such thing as real death in soap operas, only the opportunity for a “shocking” resurrection later on), it delivers it with consistency.

So while shows like Community and Dead Like Me had to scrape and claw for every season (and often every episode) to be put on the air because of their unusual storytelling sensibilities, a show like The Big Bang Theory is bound to run on an endless network broadcast for all of eternity because it found an easy formula to replicate, and is more than happy to deliver the same familiar product over and over.

The easiest formula to ensure a long and prosperous run? Insert boobs. »

On tonight’s episode of The Big Bang Theory, Howard and Bernadette find their Valentine’s Day celebration interrupted when they find something in their hot tub. I didn’t even know they had a hot tub, but it sounds like an interesting mystery. What do you think it could be? A raccoon? A Nalgene bottle? Guess we’ll have to wait and find out. Also on tonight’s episode, Raj continues to wrestle with his relationship. This new girl at the comic book store seems like a better fit for him, but I can’t help but like Emily’s character. Wonder how that will play out. This
