Dick Wolf’s latest project, “Nightwatch,” will premiere Jan. 22 on A&E.
The hour-long docu-series from executive producers Wolf, Tom Thayer and 44 Blue Productions’ Rasha Drachkovitch will follow emergency teams working the intense and life-threatening overnight shift in New Orleans, Louisiana.
“’Nightwatch’ focuses on first responders, working the graveyard shift, in one of the world’s most notorious night cities — New Orleans,” Wolf tells Variety. “We take the viewer behind the scenes in real time as Ems, police and fire respond to every kind of call possible, many of which are stranger than fiction.”
Adds Drachkovitch, “We were amazed by the incredible cooperation and access from all three of New Orleans’ first responder agencies. They all embraced us and our crew, and gave an unfiltered front seat view of the city’s action, intrigue and drama.”

CBS decisively beat its rivals in key demos on Tuesday behind its annual airings of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and the “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,” while ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” joined CW’s dramas and Fox’s comedies in wrapping fall on the high end of their ratings ranges.
Ratings will be released later Wednesday for FX’s “Sons of Anarchy,” which is expected to challenge as the night’s top show in some categories.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” averaged a timeslot-leading 2.8 rating/9 share in adults 18-49 while drawing 10.7 million viewers overall — down a bit in the demo from its year-ago telecast, though last year it didn’t have to face NBC’s “The Voice” or a competing holiday special on ABC (“Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town”). Head-to-head, it beat “The Voice” in 18-49 (2.8 vs. 2.2) and 25-54 (3.9 vs. »

Chicago – December 9th is the 2014 second season premiere of “Ground Floor,” the TBS workplace comedy featuring John C. McGinley (“Scrubs”), plus Skylar Astin and Briga Heelan (seen in the film “Pitch Perfect”). Chicago native Cindy Caponera is a writer and co-executive producer on the show.
In a variation on the “Slobs versus the Snobs” scenario, “Ground Floor” is set in a financial company that features a romance between an occupant of the upper floors – where the master-of-the-universe financial consultants hold court – and a worker on the “ground floor,” where the operations and maintenance crew resides. A big part of the hilarity is provided by John C. McGinley, playing a mentor character as in “Scrubs,” but in a softer and gently funny way. The chemistry between the featured couple, portrayed by Astin and Heelan, provides the conflict between the two parts of the company.

In Saudi Arabia, women aren’t allowed to drive cars. In Chicago, women aren’t allowed to drive trucks—at least not on movie sets. That’s according to a lawsuit filed against Chicago Teamsters Local 727 that claims no woman has been hired to drive a truck on a union film or TV show shot in the Windy City in the local’s 75-year history. That’s tens of thousands of jobs, hundreds of thousands of days worked.
In 2010, Maura Anne Stuart made history by becoming the first female admitted Local 727’s Movie/Trade Show division. Three years later, she filed a sex-discrimination lawsuit against the union claiming she had been shut out of breaking into its Movie/Trade Show Division for several years. The suit was thrown out by a U.S. District Court judge but was recently reinstated by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. The trial could begin sometime next year. »

Sometimes, you learn more about a major television event by not watching it. That was my experience Thursday, as I enjoyed Peter Pan Live! not through my own eyes, but through the eyes of Twitter.
(Disclaimer: TVLine Senior Editor Michael Slezak did watch Peter Pan Live!, so if “accuracy” is more your flavor, check out his photo recap of the best, worst and “whoops-iest” moments.)
All right, friends, here’s what I gathered…
It all started with a dead maid:
Kelli O'Hara is singing "Almost Real" to herself in the nursery right now while the maid is still dead in »
There were highs (quite literally, Allison Williams’ aerial pirouette), lows (Christopher Walken searching for a line) and head-scratchers (that Mummenschanz-esque crocodile!). But no doubt about it, NBC’s Peter Pan Live! was an artistic upgrade from last year’s dubious Sound of Music.
Clocking in at a full three hours, though, there were plenty of peaks and valleys (not to mention snafus) during the course of the live broadcast — and Team TVLine tried to catch each and every one of ‘em.
Wendy’s eyebrow-raising nightgown neckline, Hook’s eyebrow-raising eyebrows, and Minnie Driver’s last-act gravitas… we’re weighing in on all of ‘em. »
If your fingers are already itching to Twittersnark the heck out of tonight’s Peter Pan Live!, star Allison Williams can save you a lot of trouble and furious hashtagging: You’re going to loathe it.
“Peter Pan you cannot watch cynically. If you do, you’re gonna hate it,” the Girls star says at a press event that takes place while the production is in rehearsals. “There’s no question. It falls apart instantly.”
But Williams thinks Peter, a little boy has the chutzpah to go up against Captain Hook, can easily dispatch with the kind of negative talk »

TV ratings for Tuesday, December 2nd are in. Here’s a brief rundown: On The CW, a much-touted crossover between its two superhero shows provided a rather negligible boost to The Flash (read Dave’s recap here), as the episode was up just a tenth to a 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demo and scored 4.22 million viewers. These CW superhero series are masters of consistency. Supernatural, meanwhile, matched last week’s 0.9 rating and scored 2.36 million viewers. ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (read Evan Valentine’s recap here) rose two tenths to a 1.8 rating and scored 5.3 million viewers, while the excellent holiday special Toy Story That Time Forgot earned a 1.9 rating and garnered 6.79 million viewers. Forever was up two tenths to a 1.2 rating and scored 5.2 million viewers. A very funny installment of Fox’s New Girl ticked up a tenth to a 1.4 rating and scored 3.01 million viewers, and The Mindy Project »

The Voice was again improved from last week's lows, seeing its Tuesday episode rise three-tenths of a point to a 2.6 rating among adults 18-49. Entering the home stretch of its fall cycle, it secured another nightly victory for NBC. Marry Me (1.4 adults) was similarly improved, though About a Boy (1.1 adults) held steady. Chicago Fire (1.6) adults was also even. Disney's latest TV foray for Toy Story, Toy Story That Time Forgot, didn't duplicate last year's ratings highs for the Halloween special. The holiday outing averaged a 1.9 rating among adults

Tuesday was a good night for superhero-themed shows, as holiday specials helped provide a boost for ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” while the start of a crossover storyline with “Arrow” helped CW’s “The Flash” pick up some speed.
NBC’s “The Voice” remained the night’s top series in young adults, teaming with “Chicago Fire” to put the net on top overall. CBS aired repeats of its crime dramas and easily won in total viewers.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, ABC’s premiere of the special “Toy Story That Time Forget” averaged a 1.9 rating/6 share in adults 18-49 and 6.8 million viewers overall in the 8 o’clock hour — falling well shy of the 2013 Halloween-themed “Toy Story” special (3.1 in 18-49) but good enough for a second-place demo finish in its timeslot. It was followed by the special “A Charlie Brown Christmas” (2.1/6 in 18-49, 6.8 million viewers overall), which »

Fast National ratings for Tuesday, December 2, 2014. The CW got huge numbers for the first part of the week's "Flash"/"Arrow" crossover event, but it was "The Voice" leading NBC to victory among young viewers and an procedural repeats leading CBS to an overall win. For "The Flash," it was the biggest audience since the season's second episode and tied for its best 18-49 demo number since that second episode. ABC was second for the night in the key demo as "Toy Story That Time Forgot" and "A Charlie Brown Christmas" took "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." to its best numbers in months. Of course, "S.H.I.E.L.D." was also boosted by not having to face a new "NCIS: New Orleans," but no matter the cause the Marvel drama hit its best figures since the season premiere in September. Also benefitting from the absence »

ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this Tuesday returned to 5.4 million total viewers and a 1.8 demo rating (per finals), up 15 percent and two tenths to its best numbers since the season opener.
Leading off ABC’s strong lineup, Toy Story That Time Forgot did 6.8 mil and a 1.9, while A Charlie Brown Christmas (6.8 mil/2.1) rose two tenths from last year’s broadcast. Forever closed the night with 5.2 mil/1.2, hitting 8- and 9-week highs.
The CW | The Flash‘s half of the Arrow crossover event — which TVLine readers gave an average grade of a high “A” — drew 4.34 million viewers and a 1.6 rating, »
