Upfront 2017: Studios Turn Down Volume as Broadcast Nets Play Safe

19 May 2017 6:22 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Of the Big Six television studios, only two — CBS and Warner Bros. — sold more new broadcast series heading into upfronts this year than they did last year. For the rest, volume was either flat or down.

As studio chiefs deplane in L.A. and begin looking ahead, they are considering how vertical integration and ratings compression are affecting the marketplace — and how to respond to an increasingly conservative industry.

“I’m already thinking about next season and how to address this,” said ABC studios president Patrick Moran. “If the broadcast networks are becoming a little bit more patient and more of the bubble shows found their way back onto the schedule, what is that going to mean going forward?”

For returning series, the tolerance for marginal ratings performance appears to be on the upswing. That was evident when, one day after canceling “Timeless,” NBC un-canceled it, renewing the Sony Pictures Television-produced time-travel drama for a second »

‘Last Man Standing’: 20th Century Fox TV Will Seek New Home for Tim Allen Comedy (Exclusive)

18 May 2017 1:23 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Studio 20th Century Fox Television is looking for a new home for canceled Tim Allen comedy “Last Man Standing.”

Speaking to Variety Thursday, studio presidents Jonnie Davis and Howard Kurtzman said that they were surprised by ABC’s decision to pull the plug on the show.

“That’s the one that’s really an open sore right now,” Davis said. Kurtzman added, “We really were expecting a pickup. The fact that we didn’t get a pickup was a surprise and a disappointment. I think no one was more disappointed than Tim Allen, such a huge star with such a huge following.”

But the series, which was ABC’s second most-watched comedy last season behind “Modern Family,” may not be dead. Asked whether “Last Man Standing” would be shopped to other networks, Kurtzman said, “We’re starting to explore that. If it’s not going to go forward at ABC, of »

TV Ratings: A Respectable Start for 'Downward Dog'

18 May 2017 9:11 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Let's be frank. Finale week is not the most ideal time to launch a Big Four comedy, let alone a single-cam that skews a bit more niche than the typical broadcast fare. But that's where ABC planted Downward Dog, and the series premiere didn't do half-bad.

With a boosted Modern Family as its lead-in, Downward Dog opened to an average 1.1 rating among adults 18-49 and 4.7 million viewers. Neither number has the making of a juggernaut, but its relative retention of Modern Family (1.7 rating; 6.1 million viewers) bodes well.

Fox won the night with a steady episode of »

TV Ratings: ‘Downward Dog’ Debuts Soft on ABC

18 May 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The debut of ABC comedy series “Downward Dog” was soft in the overnight ratings, according to Nielsen data.

The series, which stars “Fargo” Season 2 standout Allison Tolman, clocked in with a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.7 million viewers. That puts it well below the fall debuts of fellow freshman comedies “Speechless” (2.0, 7.3 million) and “American Housewife” (1.9, 6.6 million), as well as the premiere of the recently-canceled “Imaginary Mary” (1.4, 5.4 million).

Earlier on ABC, the season finale of “The Goldbergs” was even, while the season closer of “Speechless” (1.2, 4.5 million) ticked up in the demo. The season’s finale episode of “Modern Family” was steady, followed by “Downward Dog.” The season closer of “Designated Survivor” (1.1, 5.1 million) rose in the demo.

“Shots Fired” (0.8, 2.9 million) was stable on Fox, followed by “Empire” (2.1,6.1 million).

On NBC, the season finale of “Blindspot” stayed even, as did a new episode of “Law & Order: Svu” (1.2, 5.4 million) and “Chicago P.D.” (1.3, 6.4 million).
