The one-two punch of “America’s Got Talent” and “American Ninja Warrior” put NBC back on top of the ratings leaderboard last week, with the network also getting a nice boost from the return of “Last Comic Standing.”
In a summer when reality has ruled over scripted originals, NBC has prevailed in the weeks not dominated by major sporting events. Last week, according to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates, its 1.1 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 edged out Spanish-language network Univision (1.0/4) as well as rivals ABC (0.9/4), CBS (0.9/4) and Fox (0.8/3).
The Peacock also won in adults 25-54 and adults 18-34 while CBS led as usual in total viewers.
“America’s Got Talent” was on the low side of its summer range but still set the week’s pace in both 18-49 (2.3/9) and total viewers (10.50 million), while “American Ninja Warrior” surged 17% to match a three-year demo high (2.1/7 in 18-49, 6.68 million viewers overall).

Sometimes the perfect way to serve the best interest of the world’s population is to remain isolated from the problems that are plaguing the public, so that you’re not emotionally influenced by the way the dilemma is impacting the people around you. That morally debated issue is once again being intriguingly explored in the current second season of TNT’s sci-fi action series, ‘The Last Ship.’ Up-and-coming actress Christina Elmore plays a lieutenant on the post-apocalyptic show, which is based on the acclaimed 1988 novel of the same name by William Brinkley, and powerfully explores how a confined Navy crew is diligently striving to cure a deadly global pandemic.

In Nielsen’s metered-markets, “I Am Cait” averaged a 2.1 household rating to tie with TNT’s “The Last Ship” as the top cable program of the night. Other top cable shows were HBO’s “True Detective” (1.5), TNT’s “Falling Skies” (1.5) and HBO’s “Ballers” (1.2).

From comic-book adaptations to sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Here are the new geek-skewed shows coming to Us TV in 2016...
The world of TV has never been so crowded and, at the same time, geeks have never had it so good. As saturated as the big screen is with superhero films and sprawling shared universes, that mentality has well and truly bled onto the small screen too.
So there’s a lot of comic-book adaptations coming up in 2016 from Marvel, DC and others, but genre TV is represented across the board with science-fiction, fantasy and horror represented at pretty much every network and cable channel in the Us.
Here's some of the geek TV that will be making its way to us from the Us next year.

Looking for news, casting, rumours and more about the next season of HBO's Game Of Thrones? Then you've come to the right place...
This is news we were all expecting, but welcome nonetheless. After a season's absence, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, aka Bran Stark, will be returning in Game Of Thrones season 6. Presumably, that means catching up with Hodor and Meera, too.
The last we saw the second-to-youngest Stark boy, he had finally completed his quest to meet the Three-Eyed Raven and was about to begin another, a training journey with the Children of the Forest which would teach him more about his Warg powers.
Here's what Hempstead-Wright told The Irish Examiner about Bran's return to the show:
“I can’t say a lot but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran. He has some interesting visions."

“America’s Got Talent” and “American Ninja Warrior” lifted NBC to the top of the summer ratings leaderboard last week, while “Under the Dome” (despite some sizable year-over-year declines) and the return of summer stalwart “Big Brother” got CBS back in the ratings game.
NBC won in adults 18-49 and 25-54 while CBS prevailed in total viewers, according to live plus same-day estimates from Nielsen for June 22-28.
“America’s Got Talent” (2.6/10 in 18-49, 11.07 million viewers overall) was the week’s No. 1 series in both demos and total viewers, tying with Bet’s annual “Bet Awards” among all programs in 18-49, and “American Ninja Warrior” (1.8/7 in 18-49, 6.03 million viewers overall) remained in the top 10. “Talent” and “Ninja Warrior” also have been repeating well for NBC, with encores of both shows on Wednesday cracking the week’s top 15.

News has been leaked about the directing responsibilities for the sixth season of HBO's "Game of Thrones" (via Entertainment Weekly). The list returns a few standouts from last season and adds a few new names into the mix. Episodes 1 & 2 will be handled by Jeremy Podeswa. He directed one of my favorite episodes from season five, "Kill the Boy" as well as the supremely unpopular "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken". He's been working with HBO for a while having also directed episodes of "True Blood", "The Newsroom", "Boardwalk Empire". Episodes 3 & 4 go to "Game of Thrones" newbie Daniel Sackheim. Recently he's contributed great work for the the FX original series "The Americans" including the standout season three finale. His work on "The Americans" proves he can handle meditative episodes with punches of action, a description that usually applies to mid-season "Thrones" episodes. Episodes 5 & 6 will also be helmed by a newcomer, Jack Bender. Bender is »

Game Of Throne season 6 has firmed up its list of directors, including Miguel Sapochnik of the magnificent Hardhome...
For anyone curious about which directors might be returning for Game Of Thrones season 6, today an official list has been confirmed. The biggest news, for us at least? That'd be Miguel Sapochnik, who has been bumped up to directing the final two episodes having impressed so much with season 5's Hardhome battle. That makes us think that season 6 might end with a big fight, too.
Notable for their absence once again are previous directing regulars Alex Graves, David Nutter, Alik Sakharov and Michelle Maclaren. Neil Marshall too, helmer of Blackwater and The Watchers On The Wall, won't be returning next time around by the looks of things.
Directing: Episodes 1 & 2
Season 5 credits: Kill the Boy, Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken Other credits: The Pacific, »
It feels as though Game of Thrones’ fifth season just ended, but already the production is getting ready to start filming Season 6 in a little over a month’s time. It’s a brutal schedule, as showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss spend 12 months of the year in a state of pre-production, production, post-production, or some combination of the three, but they’ve finalized a very important piece of the Season 6 puzzle: the directors. Per EW, the full list of directors for what could be the show’s penultimate season is as follows: [caption id="attachment_478303" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via HBO[/caption] Jeremy Podeswa (Episodes 1 & 2) – Podeswa made his GoT debut with Season 5’s “Kill the Boy” and “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” and his other credits include The Pacific, The Walking Dead, and Boardwalk Empire. David Sackheim (Episodes 3 & 4) – One of two Game of Thrones newcomers this season, Sackheim’s filmography includes a number of episodes of The X-Files, »
