The Most Pirated Shows Of 2014

27 December 2014 10:09 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

For the third year in a row, HBO's "Game of Thrones" was the most pirated TV show online with this year's fourth season finale scoring 8.1 million illegal downloads according to Torrent Freak. That's considerably up on the 5.9 million record for last year's season finale.

Otherwise there's been some shuffling about compared with last year. "Breaking Bad" and "Dexter" wrapped last year so both shows didn't make the cut. "Homeland" also slipped out of the top ten.

New series "Gotham" made the list with a 3.2 million for its most pirated episode, whilst both "Grey's Anatomy" and "South Park" joined the top ten. Other shows were reshuffled with "The Walking Dead," "The Big Bang Theory," "Arrow" and "Vikings" all seeing big jumps whilst "Suits" saw a decline.

The list uses stats garnered from public BitTorrent trackers, but Not from online streaming and cyberlocker downloads. Here's the full top ten:

I Survived ‘The Interview,’ and All I Got Was This Stupid Blog Post … and a Lot of Laughs

26 December 2014 1:43 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It was no more than a week ago when I advised my own mother to stay away from movie theaters on Christmas, breaking years of Jewish tradition. Could you really blame me? A group of hostile hackers had threatened “9/11-style” attacks against theaters that dared to show “The Interview,” a political comedy that the media has transformed from a mere movie into a movement.

While many initially questioned the credibility of these threats, I can’t say I was among them. “Why take a chance?” I asked myself. Who knows what the so-called Guardians of Peace are capable of? However, »

Ratings: ‘Grinch’ Grabs Victory for ABC on Christmas Night

26 December 2014 10:58 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Grinch stole a primetime ratings victory for ABC over its rivals on Christmas, with both the animated classic and the Jim Carrey theatrical based on the Dr. Seuss character winning their timeslots in key demos.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, the 1966 animated half-hour “Dr. SeussHow the Grinch Stole Christmas” averaged a 1.9 rating/7 share in adults 18-49 and 5.9 million viewers overall — a five-year high for the special in the demo. It certainly helped the net’s cause that it aired a well-rated NBA game (Cleveland-Miami in LeBron James’ return to Miami) up until about 7:50 p.m. Et.

From 8:30 to 11 p.m., the 2000 feature film “Dr. SeussHow the Grinch Stole Christmas” averaged a 1.8/6 in 18-49 and 5.0 million viewers overall).

For the night, ABC dominated among the broadcast networks in key demos and even beat out CBS in total viewers. TNT led among the cablers, earning a 2.3 overnight household rating. »

Year in TV: The 10 Best Moments of 2014

26 December 2014 10:26 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If 2014 was a year of great television — and indeed, it was — much of that was built around memorable moments.

How can that be culled down to a comprehensive list? It can’t. But there are certain scenes that tend to stick to your ribs, which — amid the haze that comes with watching thousands of hours of television — might be the best barometer of what qualifies. Needless to say, there will be blood, laughs and spoilers.

Here are the 10 best moments of 2014 in alphabetical order:

The Affair. Noah (Dominic West) and Allison (Ruth Wilson) have a chance encounter on the beach, setting their you-know-what in motion. But their respective recollections on how the meeting went, and who initiated the flirtation, differ, establishing the template for the series to come.

The Big Bang Theory. In a disarmingly tender moment, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) tells Amy (Mayim Bialik) that he loves her, too. The »

Ratings: NBC’s ‘State of Affairs’ Hits Low Without ‘Voice’ Lead-in

23 December 2014 9:44 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After hanging in there in recent weeks, NBC’s rookie drama “State of Affairs” took a step backward on Monday without lead-in support from “The Voice,” falling to its lowest score to date.

Granted, audiences aren’t trained to expect firstrun episodes from the networks in late December (and it could be that more people than usual will catch up via DVR playback), but “State of Affairs” (1.1 rating/4 share in adults 18-49, 5.0 million viewers overall) was down half a ratings point week to week and 0.3 below its previous nadir set Nov. 24 with its second episode. Its lead-in this week, a repeat “Saturday Night Live” Christmas special, did a 1.6 in the demo in the 9:30 p.m. half-hour, a significant 43% lower than last week’s “Voice” (2.8).

Starting Jan. 5, “State of Affairs” will have “Celebrity Apprentice” as a lead-in.

In 18-49, last night’s “State of Affairs” tied with CBS’ encore of »
