Fox's 'Teenage Daughter' ratings solid (sadly); 'Harry's Law' grows

1 December 2011 9:13 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Critics might dislike Fox’s new comedy (one dubbed it a “shrieky nightmare”), but I Hate My Teenage Daughter got off to a good start in the ratings Wednesday night, while NBC’s long-suffering Harry’s Law received a welcome boost.

Fox’s 90-minute X Factor (3.7 adults 18-49 rating) was steady with its last Wednesday airing two weeks ago and gave a strong lead-in to the series debut of Teenage Daughter (6.8 million viewers, 2.8 in the demo) at 9:30 p.m. The comedy was up 47 percent from the premiere of last year’s Traffic Light in the slot.

Ratings: Teenage Daughter Looks Good, Harry's Law Hits Highs Versus Rivals' Repeats

1 December 2011 8:59 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

As freshman Fox fare is prone to do when debuting after a well-watched show such as The X Factor or American Idol (and opposite ABC and CBS reruns), I Hate My Teenage Daughter opened well enough, drawing 6.84 million total viewers while scoring a 2.8 demo rating. That represents retention of 63 and 76 percent of X Factor‘s numbers, and a 47 percent improvement on Traffic Light‘s February 2011 apres-Idol debut, though it’s down from Breaking In‘s own Idolized premiere.

NBC’s Harry’s Law, similarly, made the most of its rivals’ repeats, surging 38 and 27 percent from its last fresh outing to »

MTV News Video Digest 11-3-11 Plus Awkward. DVD Coming November 14th

3 November 2011 2:05 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

MTV is full of fun today, and while you may think that has something to do with the clip of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt.1 that is being revealed tonight, it actually has a lot more to do with the info that Awkward. is coming to DVD on November 14th.

That show blew me away from the first episode, and even though there were a few rough patches throughout the season, it's still a winner.

First, I've got some video clips, but be sure to check below for all the info on the DVD release.

 

Mac Miller stopped by for a "First Date" with MTV News' Rya Backer. Rya took the self-described "half-Jewish" rapper to NYC' Katz' Delicatessen. There, they enjoyed some pastrami on rye, talked Jewish rap history and Mac's 5 year plan: to win a Heisman, a Nobel Peace Prize and a Kids Choice Award.

New Girl: Is the New Fox Sitcom Worth Watching? ‎

20 September 2011 4:37 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Tonight, Fox premieres a new sitcom to follow their popular Glee series. They renewed Raising Hope last season but it was far from a hit and they cancelled two other sitcoms, Running Wilde and Traffic Light, that were flops. They're hoping New Girl will be the hit they've been looking for and the critics seem to think they're on the right track.

New Girl follows Jess Day (Zooey Deschanel), a young and beautiful free-spirit who goes through a bad break-up and needs a new place to live. She finds a great loft but must share it with three young male roommates (Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, and Lamorne Morris). They give her a unique kind of support and help her move on. She helps them understand women.

Here's what the critics think of the new sitcom:

NBC & Producer Peter Traugott To Adapt Israeli Drama Series ‘Pillars Of Smoke’

29 August 2011 1:01 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Israeli formats continue to be a hot commodity. In a competitive situation, NBC has landed the rights to Israeli mystery drama Timrot Ashan, aka Pillars of Smoke, for Peter Traugott’s recently launched Ums-based production company to produce. Search is already underway for a writer to adapt the series created by Noah Stollman and Oded Davidoff, which is often referred to as Israel’s Lost. Described as Twin Peaks meets Northern Exposure meets Lost, the original Pillars of Smoke is an offbeat mystery series set in Israel’s remote, rural Golan Heights. When the members of a remote cult disappear leaving no traces behind, a police investigation slowly uncovers the darkest secrets of the region and its inhabitants, as well as a grander political conspiracy and environmental disaster from which the cult members are attempting to escape. Traugott will executive produce the NBC version with his development executive Rachel Kaplan. »

Breaking In Gets Surprise Season Two Renewal!

24 August 2011 11:22 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in May, Fox cancelled the new comedy series Breaking In, along with The Chicago Code, Traffic Light, and Human Target. Today, in a very rare move, the network has resurrected Breaking In with a new 13-episode order.

This actually marks the second time the show has survived cancellation, after Fox initially passed on the pilot, despite receiving one of the network's highest testing ratings. Sony Television kept pushing for the show, and Fox eventually relented, giving Breaking In a seven-episode order which started in April. When the network cancelled Breaking In in May, Sony Television kept fighting for the show, which lead the network to consider putting the show in its midseason comedy block. Fox also agreed to share some of the production costs with Sony, while extending the options on the Breaking In cast. Breaking In is said to be only the second show to survive cancellation twice, »

Fox Bringing Back Breaking In

24 August 2011 8:34 AM, PDT | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Fans of the Fox action comedy Breaking In, featuring Christian Slater, celebrated the surprising news today that Fox agreed to bring back the Slater spy comedy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox agreed to revive Breaking In — after abruptly canceling the show in early May — as part of a deal to acquire series creator Adam F. Goldberg’s new comedy series. Of all the shows axed by Fox this year, Lie To Me, Human Target, Traffic Light and The Chicago Code, only Breaking In received a second chance at building its audience thanks to Fox’s desire to land Goldberg’s semi-autobiographical comedy about growing up in the ‘80s. »

Breaking In: Chances for Cancelled Fox Sitcom Still Alive

6 July 2011 2:40 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Back in May, Fox cancelled Breaking In after one short season. The ratings for the sitcom weren't bad but the network surely expected better from a show that had American Idol, its biggest hit, as a lead-in.

Shortly after the cancellation, word came out that the sitcom might possibly be renewed after all. Fox was supposedly in talks with Sony Pictures TV about finding a way to bring the show back for season two but wouldn't likely make a decision for some time.

Soonafter, the network scheduled the final episode of the season on a Tuesday night, to see how well the Breaking In would perform in a different timeslot. Unfortunately it didn't perform any better than Traffic Light had and that sitcom had already been cancelled. It looked like Breaking In's chances were over.

Not so. According to Deadline, »

Emmys: The comedy series contenders in order from least to most funny

27 June 2011 5:06 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

A few weeks ago, Hollywood Reporter TV critic Tim Goodman wrote an article about how it seems like a lot of the recent Emmy nominees for outstanding comedy series aren't all that funny. He wasn't harumphing about the quality of comedy on TV; in fact, he's already said in the past that the sitcom is alive and well.

No, what he was complaining about was that the shows that have been nominated recently and are in contention this year are shows that have more dramatic elements than funny ones, but either because of their format or because of the competition in the drama categories, they have to go up against shows that are much more traditional comedies. And, because shows like "The Big C" or "Glee" are dramatic in nature, the goofier comedies on the ballot don't ever stand a chance.

We wanted to figure out which shows are truly »
