Julianna Margulies has scored a success in her legal battle with her former manager over commissions, and as a result, will look to win the case on Thursday. Last year, the The Good Wife star was sued by D/F Management for at least $420,000. The management firm of Steve Dontanville claimed that it was entitled to 10 percent of what she continued to make on shows and for product deals that were negotiated while they were her representatives. Margulies returned fire with a counterclaim that Dontanville failed to provide her with any writing to memorialize the terms of his

CBS is sticking to its usual playbook when it comes to launching its fall schedule -- which means a whole lot of premieres during the first official week of the 2013-14 season.
This year, the Nielsen-measured season starts on Sept. 23, and that week will feature the premieres of all but two shows in the network's fall lineup. The outliers are the 27th edition of "Survivor" (Sept. 18), which typically starts a week before the rest of the schedule; and new comedy "We Are Men," which will start Monday, Sept. 30 in order to make room for an hour-long "How I Met Your Mother" premiere on Sept. 23.
CBS also has the Emmy Awards this year, and they will air Sunday, Sept. 22, a day before the season begins. The network also says its midseason drama "Intelligence" will debut on Feb. 24 -- it's sharing the 10 p.m. Monday spot with another new show, "Hostages," which »
It's first in the ratings and now it's the first network to reveal its 2013-2014 primetime schedule.

50 Cent has got the Power. No, he hasn’t been cast to play He-Man. He’s got something even better lined up thanks to the Starz network. Staz originals definitely push the envelope and I’m sure we can expect the same from Power, the newest drama to get a series order from the cable channel. Power is executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Mark Canton of 300 and Randall Emmett of End Of Watch.
In addition to an already impressive bunch of executive producer, Power is created by Courtney Kemp Agboh who has served as a producer for The Good Wife. She is also an executive producer and the primary showrunner for the new Starz series.
Power currently has an eight-episode order. It follows James “Ghost” St. Patrick, a very rich New York City nightclub looking to build himself a very lucrative empire. Why stop at a successful nightclub when »

Fast National ratings for Sunday, June 16, 2013
The 2013 Miss USA pageant took a big ratings hit Sunday, dropping significantly from its numbers on NBC last year, when it aired without competition from the NBA Finals. The pageant lost about 1.5 million viewers and several tenths of a point in the 18-49 demographic.
Game 5 of the NBA Finals, meanwhile, delivered another ratings win for ABC. NBC got a bit of a bump from the final holes of the U.S. Open early in primetime, while CBS and Fox were mostly in repeats.
ABC averaged 12.2 million viewers and a 7.1 rating/13 share in households in the fast nationals, pending adjustments for the live NBA telecast. NBC (5.3 million, 3.4/6) was a distant second. CBS finished third with 4.2 million viewers and a 2.9/5, and Fox (2 million, 1.3/2) trailed.
ABC scored a 4.7 rating among adults 18-49 to lead the night by a wide margin. NBC (1.4) was the only other network to finish above 1.0 in the demographic. »
ABC rolled over the competition on Sunday as Game 5 of the NBA Finals dominated the evening and contributed to big year-to-year losses for the Miss USA pageant on NBC.
According to preliminary, affiliate-based national estimates from Nielsen, the San Antonio Spurs’ victory over the Miami Heat averaged a 5.6 rating/16 share in adults 18-49 and 14.2 million viewers overall on the net’s stations from 8 to 11. These numbers will rise in the nationals and should challenge or surpass the previous high in the series, set Thursday with Game 5 with a 6.7 national rating/21 share in 18-49 and 16.23 million viewers overall.
In metered-market overnights, Sunday night’s game earned an 11.4 household rating — the second best of the Finals, behind Thursday’s 12.0. This is the 23rd straight time that an NBA Finals game has delivered a double-digit overnight, and Sunday will mark the 35th consecutive time an NBA Finals telecast has won the night for ABC. »

During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, Carrie Preston spoke about what a treat it’s been for her to create such different characters on three shows at once, what it’s been like to be a part of True Blood, how refreshing it’s been to shake things up with a new showrunner, whether Arlene might ever catch a break in Bon Temps, »
