It’s not every day that cinephiles can watch porn that stimulates them — artistically, that is. Unless you attend a live screening of Hump! Film Festival, the amateur porn festival started by sex columnist Dan Savage.
Lynn Shelton fans are already familiar with the fest, thanks to 2009’s “Humpday,” which told the story of two straight guys who decide to make a gay porn and submit it to Hump! (Fun fact: After Savage challenged Shelton to submit her own indie porn film to Hump!, The director accepted, and the resulting film won an award at the festival.)
Hump! features short, dirty films that are each under five minutes. Per the festival’s website: “Our carefully curated program is a cornucopia of body types, shapes, ages, colors, sexualities, genders, kinks, and fetishes—all united by a shared spirit of sex-positivity… Hump!’s main mission is to change the way America sees—and makes and shares—porn. »

The broadcast networks’ march toward authenticated binge-able viewing options continues slowly but surely. ABC said Monday it will make all episodes of its new shows available for streaming on its ABC app and ABC.com. That includes ABC-produced series “Designated Survivor,” “Conviction,” and “American Housewife.” A few returning series will have the full-season stack available as well, like “Quantico.”
There are a number of heavy-hitter returning series that are not included in this stacking development: “Grey’s Anatomy,” “How to Get Away With Murder,” “Modern Family,” “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and others. Those series will have the standard five most recent episodes available for viewing, because stacking rights to those shows are already spoken for.
And in order to have access to the full seasons of the shows, you need to log in through your pay TV provider. Doing so also gives you access to a live stream of your local ABC affiliate, if »

When it comes to primetime football, many TV advertisers are paying more for less.
The cost of a 30-second ad in CBS’ “Thursday Night Football” rose nearly 15%, while the price of a spot in NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” is up nearly 2%, according to an annual Variety analysis of primetime ad costs for the 2016-2017 season, even as ratings for TV football have tumbled in recent weeks.
Meanwhile, Madison Avenue seems to have questions about another ratings giant. The average cost of an ad package in AMC’s popular zombie dramas, “The Walking Dead” and “Fear The Walking Dead,” dropped 6.4% and a whopping 46.5%, respectively. The point may be moot: AMC said Sunday it had renewed the original “Walking” series for an eighth season, days before its seventh season is unleashed.
Football remains TV’s priciest property for advertisers. A 30-second spot in NBC’s Sunday night franchise costs an average of $650,000, according to the Variety survey. A »

In a new interview, Castle‘s former leading man concedes that the the ABC drama’s series finale — which featured a tacked-on coda that leaped forward seven years and confirmed a happy ending for Rick, Kate and their three kids — was less than perfect.

It has been a decade since pioneering mockumentary filmmaker Christopher Guest delivered his last feature length work, the unfortunately underwhelming “For Your Consideration.” And in that time, Guest has seen the comedic format he perfected nearly from the start catch on like wildfire. It’s hard to imagine the oeuvre of Sacha Baron Cohen or shows like both the U.K. and U.S. versions of “The Office,” “Parks & Recreation,” and “Modern Family” without Guest laying the groundwork.

Sorry, haters...You can't stop Ariel Winter from doin' her thang! The 18-year-old doesn't just look fierce and fabulous on the cover of Seventeen magazine's November issue, she feels it, too. In chatting with the publication, the Modern Family star does admit it's difficult reading the constant negative commentary from trolls on social media, but she's doing her best to look beyond it. "It's definitely hard being self-conscious and having the world be able to tell you how they feel about you," she explained. "Before Twitter and Instagram, if you felt a certain way about a person you didn't know, you couldn't tell them. Now I wake »
Fox is probably feeling pretty good about its decision to order those extra Lethal Weapon episodes.
The rookie drama enjoyed its first week-to-week gain last night, drawing 6.7 million viewers and a 1.9 demo rating (vs last Wednesday’s 6.5/1.7). Empire also ticked up a tenth in the demo (to 3.3) while remaining steady among total viewers (9.3 mil).

Fox’s “Lethal Weapon,” glorying perhaps in a full-season pickup, was up from last week in Nielsen’s preliminary ratings with a 1.9 in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 6.69 million total viewers. (It also grew from the first half hour to the second.)
Comparisons to last week’s ratings are tough, though, since large parts of the southeastern U.S. were experiencing preemptions for local coverage of Hurricane Matthew’s impending devastation.
That said, a bump is a bump, and it’s encouraging, particularly given that “Lethal Weapon” has shown it can add on another couple tenths of a point in the ratings that matter to advertisers.
Following “Lethal Weapon” on Wednesday night was “Empire,” which seems to have hit a plateau from its previous precipitous drops from last season — it was actually up a tenth from last week in the demo, weighing in with a 3.4 demo rating and 9.3 million total viewers.

The move to Wednesday nights has been rough for Blindspot.
NBC: Blindspot (5.4 million/1.1 rating) slipped to its lowest ratings yet, but Law & Order: Svu (6.1 million/1.4 rating) and Chicago Pd (6.1 million/1.4 rating) picked up some viewers.
Fox: Empire (9.3 million/3.4 rating) and Lethal Weapon (6.7 million/1.9 rating) stopped bleeding.
The CW: Arrow (2 million/0.7 rating) was even with last week, but Frequency (1.1 million/0.3 rating) took a hit.
ABC: The Goldbergs (6.4 million/1.8 rating), Speechless (6 million/1.8 rating) and Designated Survivor (7 million/1.6 rating) were even, but Modern Family (7.5 million/2.4 rating) and Black-ish (5.9 million/1.8 rating) picked up steam.

American Housewife was originally called The Second-Fattest Housewife in Westport. It’s a title that perfectly represents Tuesday’s series premiere, assuming you can get past the fact that its central character isn’t actually fat.
Of course, that’s part of the alleged joke in this mean-spirited sitcom that, having changed its title, is hopefully planning to throw out its premise and start fresh in Week 2.
The series centers on Katie Otto (Mike & Molly‘s Katy Mixon), a mother of three with serious body-image issues. When »
