Fox Renews ‘Lucifer’ for Season 3

13 February 2017 12:15 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The devil ain’t done yet. Fox has renewed “Lucifer” for a third season of 22 episodes.

The Warner Bros. TV drama centers around Satan (Tom Ellis), a.k.a. Lucifer Morningstar, relinquishing his job as Hell’s gatekeeper and taking up residence in Los Angeles to own a club and solve crimes with the Lapd. In Nielsen’s Live+Same Day numbers, it’s averaging a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.83 viewers; Fox says that across all platforms the series is averaging 8 million viewers per episode.

Currently on hiatus, the show will return to finish out its second season starting on May 1, in its usual Monday 9 p.m. slot, where it’s proven a stable draw behind fellow Wbtv series “Gotham.”

Designated Survivor: a show well worth checking out

2 February 2017 10:16 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Craig Thomas Feb 3, 2017

Kiefer Sutherland stars in the hugely entertaining thriller Designated Survivor. Here's a spoiler-free look at why you should give it a try.

Heard of the show Designated Survivor? It might just quench your thirst (whether you knew you had it or not) for a new thriller to follow.

The basics are this. Straight-talking, politically unambitious, and honest, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Tom Kirkland (played by Kiefer Sutherland), finds himself on the brink of being fired. As such, he is appointed the 'Designated Survivor' for the State of the Union Address. This basically involves being locked in a safe-room far away, whilst the rest of the government convenes on Capitol Hill.

Fortunately for him, this is the best-timed firing in history, and as a result of an attack, he is the only member of the government to survive. Therefore, being next in the line of succession he becomes, »

Super Bowl Ad Review: Coen Brothers Try to Rev Audiences for Mercedes

30 January 2017 11:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Joel and Ethan Coen have lured moviegoers to films ranging from “The Big Lebowski” to “No Country for Old Men.” Can they now direct football fans to blow tens of thousands of dollars on a new Mercedes?

That will be the challenge come Sunday, when a 30-second ad will air during Super Bowl Li featuring Peter Fonda, the auto manufacturer’s slick Amg roadster, and a gang of burly bikers listening to Steppenwolf’s “Born to be Wild.” The question, of course, will be if the Coens can make the kind of art that leads to commerce.

Based on the teaser made available online – a 60-second behemoth that will no doubt be ill-served by the editor’s knife when it is cut down to half that length – the answer may be “No.”  After spending time with the colorful denizens of the tavern (it’s called “Tiny’s,” by the way) it’s hard to figure out why »

Network president/CEO David Nevins expects to see a tremendous surge in sign-ups for Showtime’s streaming service come May 21, when “Twin Peaks” premieres, and hopes to capitalize on that interest.

Showtime is expected to see its over-the-top service explode that day, given that episodes 3 and 4 will be available on the service the same day as the show’s two-hour linear premiere. Beyond that, the show will roll out in a traditional weekly fashion.
