TV Ratings: Dipping 'American Idol' leads Fox to Wednesday wins, while 'The 100' gets a bump

7 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, April 16, 2014. With "Criminal Minds" and "CSI" both in repeats, "American Idol" was able to post week-to-week declines and lose the 8 p.m. hour to "Survivor: Cagayan," but still win Wednesday primetime in all measures. Because the 8 p.m. hour remained competitive, a new "Arrow" posted no real gains for The CW, but against mostly repeats in the 9 p.m. hour, "The 100" was up over last week's "Arrow"-free airing and also returned to 2 million viewers for the first time since its second episode. On to Wednesday's numbers... Among adults 18-49, Fox averaged a 1.9 rating for Wednesday night, topping CBS' 1.6 rating in the key demographic. NBC was third with a 1.2 key demo rating, followed by ABC's 1.1 key demo rating, while The CW's 0.7 key demo rating was fifth. Overall, Fox averaged an estimated 8.38 million viewers and a 5.2 rating/8 share for Wednesday, beating CBS' 4.9/8 and 7.67 million viewers. There »

TV Review: ‘Unusually Thicke’

15 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Look at it from TV Guide Network’s perspective: The channel can’t afford “Modern Family” reruns, much less a scripted approximation. So it has replicated a small part of that hit on the cheap in “Unusually Thicke,” a reality-sitcom hybrid that casts 67-year-old TV personality Alan Thicke as the irascible husband, and his 28-years-younger (and more curvaceous) third wife, Tanya, as his sparring spouse. Filled with celebrity cameos, the show works so far as viewers are willing to play along, although for the target demo, Thicke has probably been relegated to, “Oh, you mean Robin’s dad?” consideration.

As has become status quo in these shows, the program dispenses with formal introductions and dives right in, gradually doling out information about the couple and Thicke’s young son, Carter, who lives with them.

In the premiere, Tanya gripes about Alan’s pack-rat ways, pushing him to get rid of »

Trailer Trashin’: Jon Favreau Gets Cooking in Chef

14 April 2014 9:14 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Happy Tax Day, dear readers! I hope a lot of you have gotten out and seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier by this point – because it’s totally awesome. And if you’re looking for something scarier at the theater right now, I recommend checking out the new horror movie Oculus. In the meantime, this week’s edition of Trailer Trashin’ steps away from the big summer movies and takes a look at the upcoming indie comedy Chef.

Premise: When Miami-born chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) tries and fails to open a restaurant in Los Angeles, he returns to Miami to fix up a food truck, which he names “El Jefe Cubanos,” and gets reacquainted with his ex-wife Inez (Sofia Vergara). He plans to drive across the country to take another crack at success in L.A.

My take: As I’ve admitted previously in this column, my biggest blind »

13 April 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Last year, Disney took us far above the world of Cars in Planes. We got to see things from a whole new point of view in Planes, and we fell in love. Like, instantly!

So it was pretty obvious that we couldn't have been more excited for the return of Dusty Crophopper (Dane Cook). This time, he's using his magnificent speed not to win any races, but to save lives.

Dusty is joining a new crew of rescue planes, cars, and a multitude of other vehicles, and together they're determined to prevent the spread of forest fires, no matter how big.

Some of the new characters include including spirited super scooper Dipper (voiced by "Modern Family" mom Julie Bowen), heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter, ex-military transport Cabbie and a lively bunch of brave all-terrain vehicles known as The Smokejumpers.

Of course, if he plans on really saving the day, Dusty is going »
