Fox Pulls Utopia From Tuesdays, MasterChef Junior to Claim Time Slot

1 hour ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Fox’s grand “social experiment” is being scaled back to one day a week sooner than planned.

Effective immediately, Utopia will now air only on Fridays at 8/7c. (As originally envisioned, it was to drop the Friday telecast after six weeks.) Its Tuesday time slot will ultimately be inhabited by Season 2 of MasterChef Junior, starting Nov. 4.

Until then, an encore of the hour-long Family Guy/Simpsons crossover episode will fill the void on Oct. 7, followed by repeats of the Simpsons and Bob’s Burgers season openers (on Oct. 14).

Post-season baseball coverage occupies Fox Tuesdays on Oct. 21 and 28.

New Girl: Season Four Ratings

3 hours ago | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last season, New Girl dropped in the ratings -- but not nearly as much as many other Fox shows. Will this quirky sitcom remain a bright spot on the network's schedule. Is it essentially guaranteed a fifth season renewal (because of syndication profits) or could it actually be cancelled? Stay tuned.

New Girl revolves around free-spirited educator Jess (Zooey Deschanel), her four single male friends (Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris, and Damon Wayans Jr.), and her childhood best friend who's now a model (Hannah Simone).

The higher a show's ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

10/1 update: You can see the rest of the latest night's ratings. »

Red Band's Dave Annable on Hot Doc's Messy Love Life, Clooney-esque Hair

4 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Dave Annable would like you to know that any resemblance between his Red Band Society character character, Dr. Adam McAndrew, and ER‘s Dr. Doug Ross are entirely coincidental.

“You peruse the Internet and see things like, ‘How much makeup is in his hair to get that gray? Stop trying to make him look like George Clooney,'” Annable says with a laugh. “I spend 10 seconds in hair and 10 seconds in makeup. I couldn’t look any more like me!”

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

5 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Jessica Biel's Bikini Body Still Has People Talking

6 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jessica Biel showed off her body in a bikini during a day at the beach with her family in Maui last week. The actress wore a loose tank top and pants on the sand before wading in the ocean in a black two-piece. We last saw Jessica in a bikini during her birthday getaway in Barbados back in March, and it seems as though her beach body still has people talking. Jessica's recent vacation come on the heels of her big return to TV; she appeared alongside Zooey Deschanel in the season four premiere of New Girl earlier this month, marking the first time she's hit the small screen since starring on 7th Heaven in the '90s - coincidentally, Jessica reunited with her former costars for a sweet family-style dinner that same week, and her onscreen sister Beverley Mitchell shared a cute photo via Twitter. While Jessica is hitting the beach in Hawaii, »

Review: 'New Girl' - 'Julie Berkman's Older Sister'

10 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of last night's "New Girl" coming up just as soon as I save you from a hideous river disease... "Julie Berkman's Older Sister" was the plottiest of the three episodes we've gotten so far. Or, at least, it was the one with stories that in their broadest strokes — Jess disapproves of her father's younger new girlfriend, Schmidt takes desperate measures to win an account — you could see other sitcoms doing. But it was also a reminder of how easily "New Girl" can get distracted from its own storylines in favor of letting the actors do and say random things — and also of why they tend to lean that way, because that tends to be when the show is most fun. So pretty much everything about the Schmidt/sponge story was a mess on a plot level, yet the whole story was clearly just an excuse for scenes »

Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on Vampire Diaries, Walking Dead, Bones, Bates, Dixie, Chi Fire, Witches and More

21 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Got a scoop request? An anonymous tip you’re dying to share? Send any/all of the above to askausiello@tvline.com

Question: I’m still Team Stelena on The Vampire Diaries. Is there any hope? —Allison

Ausiello: Never give up hope, Allison! Elena’s emotions are all over the place in Season 6 and I have it on good authority that her love life is going to be far from dormant. In fact, I hear she’ll be locking lips with a handsome fella in Episode 3 — and his name does not rhyme with Shmamon.

NBC Tops in Demos, CBS Takes Total Viewers in First Week of TV Season

30 September 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In an overall pretty good first week of the television season for the broadcast biz, NBC ruled in all key demos and CBS prevailed in total viewers — while third-place ABC was arguably the most impressive of all the networks.

It was mostly slow going for Fox, though it book-ended its week nicely with newcomer “Gotham” and its “Simpsons”-“Family Guy” crossover episode.

The networks combined were down 2% in adults 18-49 rating vs. their premiere week of 2013 (9.6 vs. 9.8), according to Nielsen “live plus same-day” numbers, but they could erase that deficit in “live plus-3″ results. CBS, which added “Thursday Night Football” to its early-fall schedule, was the only network up vs. last year in 18-49.

In total viewers, a category skewed by tune-in among adults 50 and older, the networks held up better. Their combined audience of 34.39 million was up 1% from last year’s 34.11 million, with ABC, CBS and NBC all up a bit. »

See Kaitlin Olson of 'It's Always Sunny' get bawdy over brunch on 'New Girl'

30 September 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The first two episodes of New Girl’s fourth season focused on Jess Day’s (Zooey Deschanel) pursuit of love, but the latest installment takes Jess’s eyes off her own romantic conquests when her father Bob (Rob Reiner) breezes into town with a new girlfriend who has plenty of high school history with Jess.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Kaitlin Olson, who plays the girlfriend in question, talked to EW about crashing the loft tonight for the first of a three-episode arc. “When they offered it to me, I said, ‘Only if there’s full frontal with Rob Reiner, »

NBC, CBS win premiere week as Fox slips

30 September 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Premiere week ratings are in: NBC and CBS have reasons to celebrate while Fox’s numbers are far from utopian.

NBC led the first week of the 2014-15 broadcast season by a wide margin in the key adults 18-49 demo, while CBS was tops among total viewers. Though NBC’s demo victory is more enviable from an advertiser perspective, CBS has the important bragging point of being the only network to show a gain among 18-49 compared to last fall—CBS was up 9 percent in the demo, while NBC, ABC and Fox were down between 3 and 9 percent each (full charts »

New Girl: Kaitlin Olson Sees the Sunny Side of Playing Jess' Future Stepmom

30 September 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

When a teenage Jessica Day flipped through her high school yearbook, little did she know that one of those pages featured her unlikely future stepmother: This week’s New Girl (Fox, Tuesday at 9/8c) introduces Ashley, the young new fiancée of Jess’ dad, Bob.

Pros: Ashley is played by It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Kaitlin Olson, who’ll be back for more episodes later in the season. Cons: Ashley is Jess and Cece’s high school nemesis… though she doesn’t remember it that way.

Kaitlin Olson on Her New Girl Guest Role, It’s Always Sunny Season 10, and Why Drinking and Acting Don’t Mix

30 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jess Day had a high-school nemesis. It’s hard to believe that Jess — glitter-loving, always-hugging, everybody-get-along Jess — could have had a mortal enemy in her teenage years, but she did. Or, at least, she thinks she did. Ashley, played by It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Kaitlin Olson, doesn’t remember things the same way. Technically speaking, she doesn’t remember Jess, like, at all. Ashley, a recovered sex addict (it only took her four tries to break the habit!), is only back in Jess’s life because of the most awkward reason possible: She’s dating Jess’s dad (played by Rob Reiner). Olson talked to Vulture about teen mean-girls, playing drunk, and switching gears from a show where everyone is constantly vicious to the sunny, supportive universe of New Girl. You play Jess’s high-school nemesis and her dad’s new girlfriend, which sounds like a very uncomfortable combination. »

Meet Jess' Worst Nightmare on New Girl—Her Dad's Very Young and "Loose" New Girlfriend!

30 September 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's always difficult when kids watch their divorced parents date other people. But Jess (Zooey Deschanel) is about to live through her worst nightmare on New Girl when her dad (Rob Reiner) brings his new girlfriend Ashley over to the loft. Because his new arm candy is none other than It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Kaitlin Olson! While we would be jumping up and down at the chance to welcome Olson into our family, Jess is less than thrilled for a couple reasons: 1. Ashley went to high school with Jess and is the same age as Jess. 2. Ashley was...ahem, loose, in high school. And still is. And even though Jess is not happy with her dad's choice in love interests, »

TV Ad Prices: Football, ‘Walking Dead,’ ‘Big Bang Theory,’ ‘Blacklist’ Top the List

26 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The flesh-eating creatures from AMC’s gory “The Walking Dead” have started to eat into football’s pricing power, according to Variety’s annual analysis of primetime TV advertising costs.

Advertisers are willing to pay more for a package of spots across multiple airings of “Dead” than they are for a 30-second spot in a broadcast of Espn’s “Monday Night Football.” The Espn pigskin showcase was the second most-expensive program for advertisers in last year’s survey, coming in just behind NBC’s ”Sunday Night Football.” This year it ranks No. 4.

The average cost of a 30-second ad in “Monday Night Football” is an eye-popping $397,898, according to the Variety analysis, which uses estimates collected from as many as six different media-buying firms as well as other sources. No scripted program on broadcast can top it. Yet the cost of a package on “Dead” comes to an average of $413,695. The »

Ratings Analysis: 'Black-ish' debuts strong, 'Laura' audience is big and old

25 September 2014 5:52 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

So you spend your morning at temple for Rosh Hashanah and you miss Fast National ratings and then you pull up Final Live+Same Day ratings for Wednesday, September 24 and... Stop it with the "Mysteries of Laura," America! Although the Debra Messing dramedy took a drop from last week's post-"Agt" sneak among young viewers, it still drew over 10 million viewers in its first Wednesday 8 p.m. airing, which is a success of almost mind-boggling magnitude.  It's such a big success that it thoroughly distracts me from nearly all of Wednesday's other notables, which include a terrific premiere for "Black-ish," an impressively consistent return for the new season of "Survivor" and a solid time period transfer for "The Goldbergs." Things weren't all entirely positive. "Modern Family" and "The Middle" were both down from last year's premieres, while "Red Band Society" remains unable to attract an audience beyond young female viewers. »

New Girl Recap: Last Piece of Pie

24 September 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

I have a serious proposal, and I’m not sure how much you’re going to like it at first, but just hear me out. Maybe … just maybe … Zooey Deschanel shouldn’t be the star of the show anymore. I Said Hear Me Out! It’s nothing against Deschanel, honestly, but Jessica Day is starting to regress as a character. With her at the center of the show, New Girl is a flat circle. Season one was the story of a newly single, late-20s-to-early-30-something who has to be resocialized by her quirky male roommates. The first few episodes of that season, you may recall, are nearly unwatchable. Jess is less a lovable goofball and more a twee, socially stunted alien. The show never quite got a handle on how to make Zooey Deschanel “undateable” without making her outright cloying, so it reinvented itself as an ensemble piece. The »

Review: 'New Girl' - 'Dice'

23 September 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "New Girl" coming up just as soon as I show you some of my old baby clothes... "Dice" felt like a step down from last week's premiere, but in a way I'm not too worried about. Jess's misadventures with the Dice app and the gang showing up stoned to a police academy party didn't provide as many laughs as the Biel-adjacent wedding hijinks, but both storylines felt like they belonged on the show. Last year had too many outings that felt like the writers were just throwing any damn idea at the wall to see what stuck, where "Dice" was an episode that just needed some more comedy polish. In particular, Schmidt trying to coach Jess through the rough world of Tinder (or its non-union Mexican equivalent) was a nice return to Schmidt using his powers of douchebaggery for good rather than evil. That it takes »
