17 April 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS won Thursday’s primetime ratings race in key demos behind “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mom,” with the latter looking pretty good in its new time period, while ABC saw “Scandal” bounce back from a string of lows opposite a repeat of drama rival “The Blacklist.”

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “The Big Bang Theory” (3.7 rating/15 share in adults 18-49, 14.5 million viewers overall) was easily Thursday’s No. 1 show as it continued its rise since hitting a season low following a two-week hiatus last month; it’s expected to rise to at least a 3.8 and possibly a 3.9 in the nationals. It was followed by “The Odd Couple” (2.2/8 in 18-49, 9.8 million viewers overall), which was up a tenth from last week’s pending updates and led its timeslot in 18-49 (tie), 25-54 and total viewers.

News Nuggets: Will Corden, Cumming, Colbert or Parsons host the 2015 Tony Awards?

14 April 2015 4:50 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Who will host this year's Tony Awards? The two most recent selections are probably not available with Hugh Jackman in an active film career and Neil Patrick Harris just weeks after hosting the Oscars. The three most logical choices have ties to Broadway as well as CBS: new late night host James Corden, Alan Cumming ("The Good Wife"), and Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"). The network might want extra promotion for their upcoming "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert. Other possibilities: Matthew Morrison, Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, Whoopi Goldberg, or Rosie O'Donnell? Hollywood Reporter -Break- The Billboard Music Awards announce three more performers for this year's ceremony. Hozier, Sam Smith, and Nick Jonas will all take the stage for the May 17 event in Las Vegas. Others previously announced are Fall Out Boy and Wiz Khalifa. Ludacris and Chrissy Teigen will host the show on ABC. TV by the Numbers 2015 Tony Awards predict. »

The Big Bang Theory season 8 episode 20 review: The Fortification Implementation

14 April 2015 7:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sheldon and Amy are the saving grace of this week's The Big Bang Theory, a show whose characters are more rewarding than its punch lines...

This review contains spoilers.

8.20 The Fortification Implementation

I’m with Leonard – gif should be pronounced with a hard “g”.

This week’s episode of The Big Bang Theory starts with an argument about animated image files, then, and you’d almost think we were in for a business-as-usual-instalment of the show. And for much of the running time it’s just that – there are mean-spirited jokes at everyone’s expense, punch lines long past being funny and just general unpleasantness from everyone towards everyone.

The good news, then, is that there’s a lot more substance to the stuff in-between than there often is, and some of it even begins to address the show’s biggest flaws.

The best third of the episode is devoted to Sheldon and Amy who, »

Game of Thrones Season Five – Episode 1 Review

13 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the first episode of Game of Thrones Season Five….

The Wars to Come. Directed by Michael Slovis. Written by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.  


Season five opens on a flashback, the first one ever in Game of Thrones. These opening prologues have prized place in George R. R. Martin’s books, either introducing new characters or telling self-contained stories that become significant later on. They help ease you back into his gory, kinky world.

The flashback is Cersei’s (Lena Headey), who will become an even more central character in season five (the fourth book, on which her storyline in this series is based, is the first one with chapters written from her perspective). It shows a witch telling a young Cersei her future, that “another queen, younger and more beautiful” would replace her. Which explains all the Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) hate.

It’s springtime when CBS traditionally experiments with one-off scheduling tweaks that inform the network brass’ fall schedule decisions come May.
