Oh my god, I am so excited to be here. I love Person of Interest so much, but never live. I feel like I’ve taken my life to a whole new level. That’s a little extreme. Forgive me; I’m new here and I am so glad to have a reason to watch this show all the time. What’s always fascinating about this show to me is how much the characters drive my enjoyment. Now, I know what you’re thinking, and you’re right (whoever you are): aren’t characters supposed to drive the enjoyment of a show? The answer is, of course, yes! Yes they are! But how many times do that actually happen? How many times have we seen a show get wrapped up in plot and forget that nobody really cares? Lost was a show that was a character drama wrapped in »

Tonight on Person of Interest (CBS, 10/9), Finch asks the question many of us have wondered ever since Samaritan went online: How is Root able to flit around from persona to persona, while the rest of Team Machine is locked into one identity apiece?
In this above sneak peek, Root (played by Amy Acker) explains her “fluid” state as she sheds her Un translator’s red locks… and more… while Finch (Michael Emerson) does his best to avert his male gaze.
We've gone an entire month into the fall TV season without a single canceled show. That's amazing. Last year, the first canceled show was on Oct. 4 (ABC's Lucky 7). In 2012, it was on Oct. 10 (CBS' Made In Jersey). In 2011, Oct. 4 struck again (NBC's The Playboy Club). Usually, the first canceled show is followed within a week or so by a second and third. Yet here we are, on Oct. 21, with four weeks of new shows behind us (more weeks for some early launching titles, like Fox's Red Band Society and Utopia). And yet, the new shows are still standing.

Composer Ramin Djawadi (Pacific Rim) has signed on to provide the score for director Duncan Jones' video game adaptation Warcraft, which is currently in post-production after wrapping principal photography in July.
Warcraft is based on the massively popular video game of the same name, where players control characters in a long-standing war between the Horde and the Alliance in a mystical realm full of various creatures. We reported in May that the project will undergo nearly two years of post-production work, before it is released in March 2016. Producer Thomas Tull revealed that the video game adaptation will employ "next generation" technology to bring this fantasy world to life. The first footage was shown at Comic-Con this summer, but it's unclear when the general public may get to see what this massive movie looks like.
A Nielsen software error created a disjointed start to the season for the networks and ratings crunchers, but things started to get back to normal this week.
The measurement service on Thursday afternoon issued the complete primetime ratings data for the third week of the TV season (Oct. 6-12) — more than two days later than its usual Tuesday morning release.
The first 17 nights of the TV season were affected by the software glitch that inaccurately credited some shows (mostly on ABC) with the viewing totals of others. Nielsen acknowledged its error late last week and re-issued program averages for premiere week (Sept. 22-28). A bunch of ABC series were revised downward in the updated nationals, while some shows on the competition (including Fox’s new “Gotham” and CBS veteran “The Big Bang Theory”) were revised upward.
Nielsen says data for every night since last Thursday has been accurate, and complete »

Apparently, stand-alone streaming services are now the “cool thing” to do if you’re a television network. Just one day after HBO announced that it will launch its own online streaming service in 2015 (meaning no cable subscription needed), CBS is also getting into the streaming game by launching its own on-demand streaming service, CBS All Access. By paying $5.99 per month, those who subscribe to CBS All Access will be able to watch thousands of episode from both current and previous seasons of their favorite CBS shows, such as The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, and Person of Interest. Additionally, classic shows like Star Trek, Twin Peaks, and Cheers will also be available to subscribers. “CBS All Access is another key step in the Company’s long-standing strategy of monetizing our local and national content in the ways that viewers want it,” said Leslie Moonves, President and CEO, »

This summer, Warner Bros. set aside release dates for a batch of unknown DC films in an effort to create a shared cinematic universe for its superheroes, similar to Marvel and Disney’s comic book structure.

Fast National ratings for Tuesday, October 14, 2014. The second week of "The Flash" kept The CW in third place for Tuesday in the key demo as the impressively steady "NCIS: New Orleans" helped CBS win the night overall and the "Voice"-boosted "Marry Me" premiere contributed to NBC's win among young viewers. The drop for "The Flash" was easily within expectations and still led into another strong showing for "Supernatural." ABC got most of Tuesday's negative news with the flattish "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." as the night's lone bright spot. "Selfie" was down to The Mulaney Line (a 1.0 in the key demo), "Manhattan Love Story" remained below The Line and dipper in viewers and "Forever" continued its steady slip. Fox's comedies were also in a low place, as repeats in the 8 p.m. hour put the network itself below The Mulaney Line for Tuesday. On to the numbers. »
