Thursday evening’s TV ratings are in. Here’s a brief look at the highlights: The season five finale of NBC’s Community saw a slight ratings uptick, rising 11% from last week’s series low 0.9 rating to a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demo and scoring 2.9 million viewers. It barely edged out Parks and Recreation for the night, but that’s still far from a “solid” ratings performance. And yet, a sixth season renewal is actually looking pretty likely since it would put the series in a lucrative position for syndication. If NBC doesn’t renew Community and “Basic Sandwich” ends up being the series finale, we’ll all just have to assume a giant asteroid destroyed all life on earth. It is canon, after all. Over on ABC, Scandal closed out its buzzworthy third season with a 3.4 rating and 10.45 million viewers, rising 13% from last week and marking the show’s highest rated season finale yet. »

ABC’s “Scandal” closed its season very strong on Thursday, delivering the show’s best-ever finale numbers and its second highest rating overall. Not so hot in its exit on the night was CBS rookie comedy “The Crazy Ones,” which didn’t help its renewal with a modest one-hour season finale.
The strong finish to the night for ABC extended to latenight, where “Jimmy Kimmel Live” posted its highest overnight rating (3.4/8 share) in the 15 months it has been on at 11:35 p.m. — winning the night with a special “Scandal”-themed hour. NBC’s “Tonight Show” and CBS’ “Late Show” both did a 2.1/5 with repeat episodes, according to Nielsen.
Looking at primetime, ABC opened Thursday with an encore “Grey’s Anatomy” (0.8 rating/3 share in adults 18-49, 3.4 million viewers overall), followed by an original episode (2.5/8 in 18-49, 8.1 million viewers overall), which was in line with last week and again led its hour in key demos. »

An explosive “Scandal” season finale led ABC to an easy win in the key demographic Thursday, as CBS won in total viewers. Thursday also had several notable series lows, including CBS's season finale of Robin Williams’ “The Crazy Ones,” NBC's “Hollywood Game Night” and a “Parks and Recreation” episode in which Leslie Knope received some huge news. The CW's “The Vampire Diaries” hit a low and “Reign” tied one.

Fast National ratings for Thursday, April 17, 2014. The season finale of "Scandal" drew big numbers on Thursday and helped ABC win Thursday among young viewers, but Thursday's most watched show was still a "Big Bang Theory" repeat, which let CBS eke out a slim win overall. Stay tuned for Final Live+Same Day ratings to see if ABC was able to push into the lead overall. Among other notables, Fox's "Hell's Kitchen" and "American Idol" both posted gains, but "Surviving Jack" was down week-to-week. Season finales of "Community" and "Parenthood" were both up for NBC, but "Parks and Recreation" was down. And The CW's spring lag continued with both "The Vampire Diaries" and "Reign" on the low side, especially among total viewers. The "Parks and Recreation," "Vampire Diaries" and "Crazy Ones" numbers were all series lows, if you're keeping score at home. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, ABC averaged a 2.2 rating for Thursday night, »

Review Caroline Preece 18 Apr 2014 - 14:45
Another fast-paced episode of The Originals ramps up the tensions between the various factions...
This review contains spoilers.
1.18 The Big Uneasy
It only took 42-minutes for Elijah quest for peace and inter-species party times to go belly up but, boy, was The Big Uneasy fun to watch. Exhausting, but fun. I’ve said it before but, if there’s one thing The Originals seems to have inherited from its parent show, it’s the fast, breakneck storytelling pace; able to explore a potentially season-long arc in just one brilliant episode and then just moving onto the next like it’s no big deal. That might have meant that we’ve seen allegiances change in this first season more times than we can reasonably keep track of, but, with The Vampire Diaries currently parked on its laurels and refusing to move, it’s a good thing. »
"Stefan gets philosophical with Elena about her relationship with 'Damon' (Ian Somerhalder). Then after their attempt to protect the 'dopplegangers' goes badly, 'Liv' (Penelope Mitchell) and 'Luke' (Chris Brochu) come up with a dangerous new strategy.
"'Bonnie' (Kat Graham) finally admits to 'Caroline' (Candice Accola) that she’s been keeping the truth about the 'Other Side' from everyone. Finally, while Bonnie searches desperately for a way to stop Markos, »

Paul Wesley deserves a round of applause for this incredible episode that served as his directorial debut on The Vampire Diaries. Seriously, it was very impressive for numerous reasons including how it dealt with the mythical doppelganger prophecy and the mythology of the Travelers. Plus we got to see some familiar faces on the Other [&hellip

On this week's episode of The Vampire Diaries, things get romantic for Stefan and Elena, only it's all fantasy. The doppelgängers are having romantic-comedy visions of each other, and we find out why they're getting them - and what it means for the travelers.

The Good I know the "vison-type situations" (thanks, Caroline) Stefan and Elena are having are a traveler side effect and a big problem for them, but aren't they pleasant?

Maybe it would get boring quickly as a show, but like Elena, I kind of wanted to spend »

She claims, a spirit may have escaped. Towards the end of the clip, Bonnie gets a surprise by seeing that Liv is there, claiming to be helping Jeremy with math.

On tonight's episode of The Vampire Diaries, Bonnie gets a visit and a warning from her grandmother concerning the Other Side. Damon continues to pine over Elena. The Travelers and their leader descend on Mystic Falls. Stefan and Elena get a glimpse of what could have been.
Enzo and Damon are playing pool and clucking like hens about Damon's now defunct love life. Enzo's situation isn't much better since the Travelers incinerated themselves before making good on their promise to tell him where his long lost love Maggie is. I neither saw Sloan go up in smoke nor pass through Bonnie, so her whereabouts must be unknown. »

Just when you thought nothing more could be done with the zombie movie sub-genre, along comes a group of boy scouts and suddenly, we’re heading back into battle. With Paramount putting his new horror-comedy – Scouts Vs Zombies – together, writer/director Christopher Landon will be hoping that the appearance of beloved comedy actor, David Koechner, will help set the kind of tone necessary to bring a new edge to this familiar concept.
Centring on a small American town, Scouts Vs Zombies sees a group of Boy Scouts try to defend their neighbourhood from a zombie attack. Joseph Morgan (The Vampire Diaries), Tye Sheridan (Mud) and Logan Miller (Growing Up Fisher) are already on board, and they will now joined by Koechner, as Scout Leader. No stranger to the horror-comedy arena, David Koechner featured in Piranha 3Dd in 2012, as well as being a well-known figure following his work on the Anchorman movies, »

"I did a pilot when I was like 19 years old and I remember before the show even got picked up, I asked the creator, 'Hey listen, if this goes to Season 5, will you let me direct one?' And they were like, 'Yeah.' So it's something I've wanted to do for the last decade," Paul told AccessHollywood.com.
"Directing is something I've always respected and been fascinated by and I've ...
