Bravo Developing Scripted Projects with Paul Adelstein, Gale Anne Hurd (Exclusive)

27 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bravo is expanding its scripted slate with three development prospects, Variety has learned, including a new project from “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” star Paul Adelstein and a 1980s period drama from “Walking Dead” producer Gale Anne Hurd.

The ramp-up of scripted development comes ahead of the premiere of Bravo’s second scripted series and first half-hour scripted comedy, “Odd Mom Out,” which premieres this summer on June 8.

Adelstein brings dark comedy “My So Called Wife” to the net’s development slate, as co-writer, along with “Girlfriends’ Guide” director Adam Brooks (“Definitely Maybe, Wimbledon”).

The Universal Cable Productions’ project follows a female con artist who gets men to fall in love with her, marries them and then disappears with their money and just enough dirty inside information to guarantee they will never go to the police.

The cabler also has “White Collar Wives” in development. Written by Vanessa Reisen (”Extant,”“Weeds »

Lots of People Tuned In to Grey’s Anatomy to Watch You Know Who You Know What

24 April 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Confirmation of last night’s big McDeparture on Grey’s Anatomy just hours before the episode aired predictably helped boost tune-in for the Shonda Rhimes medical drama — but it didn’t set any ratings records. According to preliminary Nielsen data, the [spoiler alert!] death of Patrick Dempsey’s character lifted the 11-season-old Grey’s to 9.4 million viewers and a 2.8 rating among viewers under 50. Among younger viewers, that’s about 20 percent above the show’s same-day average this season, and its biggest audience since the show’s season premiere (and shift to 8 p.m.) last September. It also ranks as Grey’s most-watched episode during a "May" ratings sweeps — the four-week period from late April through May, which local TV stations use to set ad rates — since 2012. The big boost for Grey’s couldn’t halt the recent same-day ratings slide for Thursday-night stable-mate Scandal, however. At least in early ratings, Scandal ticked »

23 April 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The doctor is officially out. Patrick Dempsey is leaving “Grey’s Anatomy” after 11 seasons on the Emmy-winning medical drama.

Scandal Season 4: Why Killing Jake Ballard Is the Worst Possible Decision Ever

23 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

In the words of Carole King, “Where Shonda Rhimes leads, we will follow, anywhere that she tell Us to.” Okay, maybe that’s not a direct quote, but you get the gist. But the potential death status of Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) on Scandal has us questioning Ms. Rhimes’ sanity.  In the final moments of last Thursday’s episode, the ever-hunky Capt. Ballard walked into the Pope & Associates office, calling out Olivia’s name. Turns out, it wasn’t the Washington, D.C. fixer who texted him, but rather a part [...] »

Nashville Recap: Liver on a Prayer

22 April 2015 9:18 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Nashville‘s Juliette Barnes is never better than when she’s taking off her metaphorical earrings and gearing up for a tussle with a formidable foe. That’s why we should all bow down and kiss the petite pop-star feet of one Ms. Jade St. John.  

Because if the former-almost-Mrs.-Fordham hadn’t come to town with her Jem-and-the-Holograms hair and her improbable cheekbones, we never would have seen Cadence’s hormonally unstable mommy spout off in a tirade containing the phrase “Country Barbie jacket.”

Even though we’re supposed to see the outburst as evidence of Ju’s emotionally frayed new mommyhood, »

Is Jake Really Dead?! Scandal's Opening Scene Will Leave You Breathless

22 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Worst. Morning. Ever. Not to be over-dramatic or anything, but we can literally think of nothing worse to see first thing in the morning than a bloodied Scott Foley lying on a table. Can you? Unfortunately, that's exactly what one of the Gladiators stumbles upon in the insanely intense opening scene of Scandal's next episode, "First Lady Sings the Blues," after Jake's (Scott Foley) been left for dead by Rowan's (Joe Morton) secret henchman Russell (Brian White). In the exclusive sneak peek above, Quinn (Katie Lowes) is just casually going through her morning routine at the Opa office (coffee, newspaper, etc.), completely oblivious to the handsome mess lying on the conference »

Weekly Ratings: CBS Wins Easily, Closes in on NBC for Season’s Demo Lead

22 April 2015 7:40 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS, airing both the week’s biggest series (“The Big Bang Theory”) and special (“50th Annual Acm Awards”), scored an easy primetime ratings victory in key demos last week as the broadcast networks head into the final month of the season.

The Eye has pulled to within a tenth of NBC for the season lead in the adults 18-49 demo, though it’s still unlikely to catch the Peacock, which benefited from airing the Super Bowl this season. Due to a sluggish performance this spring, NBC no longer has a shot at a 2.6 and seems locked into a 2.5, while CBS should be able to hold its 2.4. ABC is likely to finish at 2.2, and Fox is headed for a fourth-place finish at 2.0.

CBS has zoomed past NBC in adults 25-54 and will win the season, and the Eye will also prevail in total viewers for the 12th time in 13 seasons.

How Lena Dunham is Launching an Empire for Comedic Women

21 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Lena Dunham needs to change her outfit. On a recent Saturday afternoon, the star and executive producer of “Girls” slips out of a hip pantsuit from her Variety cover shoot, and dons a comfortable jacket. The denim coat is as colorful as Dunham herself, the back festooned with ’90s pop-culture icons (a Furby) and other whimsical objects, like a pair of women’s underwear with an anarchist punk saying, “No Masters,” in pink lettering. “I think it’s my best fashion garment,” she says, confiding that she purchased it from one of her Instagram followers. “You may notice it’s covered in aggressive female symbols. My boyfriend tried to steal it, and I was like, ‘Back off!’ ”

Dunham, 28, isn’t just the face of “Girls,” she’s also an out-and-proud feminist — a trait passed down from her mother, photographer Laurie Simmons — and a practitioner of “Lean In,” the Sheryl Sandberg »

Scandal Poll: Is Jake Really Dead?

18 April 2015 5:45 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Is Scandal about to pull a fast one on us?

At the end of Thursday’s episode, Olivia’s beau, Russell, stabbed Scott Foley‘s Jake nearly a dozen times in the chest and stomach. It’s hard to imagine anyone — even death-defying Ballard — surviving such an assault. And the promo for next week’s episode, which features a frantic Quinn declaring, “Jake is dead. Jake. Is. Dead” while the character’s bloodied corpse rests on Opa’s conference table, seems to confirm that Foley’s Scandal run has come to an end.

The operative word there being seems.

Emmys upheaval: Guest actors Joe Morton, Frank Langella must go supporting

18 April 2015 6:26 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

In an effort to define what it truly means to be a "guest" star, the Emmys introduced a new rule this year that only performers appearing in less than 50% of the eligible episodes may enter the guest categories. Those who appear in half or more of the season's episodes must now go supporting. Among the actors affected by this rule change are Joe Morton, who by season's end will have popped up in more than half of the 23 episodes of "Scandal," and Frank Langella, who was seen in 10 of the 13 episodes of "The Americans." -Break- Now that they've been cruelly thrown out of the guest star race, will Morton and Langella get their revenge on the Emmys in the Best Drama Supporting Actor category?

The Wild Roller Coaster That Is Loving Scandal's Jake Ballard

17 April 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Something insane happened on the latest episode of Scandal, and if you don't want to know what it is, I suggest you stop reading. Now that we've gotten past that spoiler alert, Jake is stabbed multiple times by Olivia's current squeeze, Russell. It's pretty bad, and he appears to be dead - though some leaked pictures of the next episode paint a different picture. It's confusing, especially because Scott Foley seemingly confirmed his exit from the show. Regardless, those who are on Team Jake are used to having our emotions be all over the place. Since Jake first showed up on the scene, things have been complicated between him and Olivia. If you relate, take a look below to see the many ups and downs of loving Jake Ballard. »

Why We So Aren't Buying That "Death" on Scandal

17 April 2015 11:36 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Nooooooo! In case you somehow missed all the tears and tweets last night, Scandal broke our hearts into millions of tiny little pieces. How? By killing one of our favorite characters. (Spoiler alert!) At the very end of the episode, Olivia's (Kerry Washington) seemingly random hookup buddy Russell (Brian White) turned out to be one of Papa Pope's (Joe Morton) henchman and attacked Jake (Scott Foley) at the Opa offices, stabbing him. Multiple times. In a promo for next week, Jake was declared "dead." Let us repeat: Noooooo! However, after several glasses of wine and multiple pints of Ben & Jerry's (Shout-out to Jimmy Fallon for the awesome "Tonight Dough" flavor!), we're, »
