Fox Goes Deep With All-Star Game, Wins Week in Demos; TNT Cable’s Scripted Leader

18 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Strong numbers for Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game and improved results for scripted originals “24: Live Another Day” and “Gang Related” lifted Fox to a rare primetime ratings victory in young adults last week — its first in the nearly six months since it aired the Super Bowl in early February.

TNT, meanwhile, continues to be the dominant cable network in scripted programming this summer. Last week, hot newcomer “The Last Ship” drew its largest demo audience since its premiere, and for summer-to-date, the net possesses the top four scripted basic cable originals in adults 25-54 as well as six of the top 10 in total viewers.

Overall, according to “Live plus same-day” estimates from Nielsen, Fox led in adults 18-49 with a 1.4 rating/5 share, followed by Univision (1.2/4), CBS and NBC (both at 1.1/4), ABC (0.9/3), and Telemundo and top cabler TBS (both at 0.6/2).

CBS won for a fifth straight week in total viewers, »

‘The Last Ship’: The Hard Choices

21 July 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

[This is a review of The Last Ship season 1, episode 5. There will be Spoilers.]

-

Part of the enduring appeal of post-apocalyptic fiction is that once unfathomable choices are often made by characters due to inescapable circumstance; tough choices that are not reflexively celebrated or even understood. More than anything, though, these narrative choices represent a risk – something that The Last Ship has, for the most part, steered clear of.

In last night’s episode, ‘El Toro’, we saw the clearest opportunity for the show to make an unpopular yet bold creative choice when Chandler (Eric Dane), Mike Slattery (Adam Baldwin) and their crew were confronted by a low level warlord (El Toro, as played by José Zúñiga) ...

TNT Renews Three Summer Series The Last Ship, Major Crimes & Falling Skies

21 July 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

TNT has renewed three of its chart-topping summer hits: The Last Ship, Major Crimes and Falling Skies. All three dramas rank among basic cable's Top 5 scripted series this summer with total viewers and adults 25-54. They have also helped TNT score a significant lead as basic cable's #1 network in primetime for the summer-to-date. TNT has ordered 13 episodes of The Last Ship, an increase over its first-season order of 10 episodes. The network is also ordering 15 episodes for season four of Major Crimes. And Falling Skies will mark its fifth and final season with 10 episodes. "TNT's refreshed and recharged drama brand is soaring this summer, and that is due in large part to these three enormously popular dramas," said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and »

Falling Skies renewed for 5th and final season

20 July 2014 11:29 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

TNT has renewed Falling Skies for season 5, which is to be the sci-fi's last...

News

TNT's Earth-invasion sci-fi, Falling Skies, has been renewed for a fifth season, which is also to be its last. In summer 2015, a ten-episode final season of the Noah Wyle-starring alien attack drama will bring Falling Skies' story to a close. 

Knowing that the end is coming invariably makes creative teams happier to wield the scythe, so we can expect some eventful episodes to come in this season and the next. As TNT puts it, "Falling Skies has begun an ambitious and thrilling story arc this summer as it sets the stage for next year’s climactic final season."

Also returning next year on TNT is The Last Ship, which will return for an extended thirteen-episode season in 2015. The Michael Bay-produced series, inspired by William Brinkley's apocalypse novel of the same name, »

FX Tweaks Ratings Model by Delaying ‘The Strain’ Numbers

18 July 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

FX drama “The Strain” has delivered impressive ratings since its Sunday night premiere, emerging as the biggest new cable drama in young adults this summer and perhaps the biggest ever for the network. But a bigger story is that it took FX this long to tout its performance.

In a first for a TV industry grappling to get an accurate handle on audience measurement in the DVR era, the network waited until Nielsen issued its “Live + 3″ numbers on Friday to release any ratings data to the press. The “Live + Same-Day” numbers were issued by Nielsen on Tuesday, and reported in some outlets, but they are increasingly becoming irrelevant for a business whose chief advertising currency is sold off numbers that include three days’ worth of DVR playback.

It’s not unusual these days, especially for 10 p.m. dramas like “The Strain,” to jump in rating by more than 50% with just »

The Last Ship: Season One Ratings

18 July 2014 3:26 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

TNT is hoping that viewers will "get on board" with their new post-apocalyptic TV show, The Last Ship. Will this series attract positive ratings so that it can be renewed for a second season or will they sink so that it's cancelled? Stay tuned.

On The Last Ship, the crew of the USS Nathan James must try to find a cure for a deadly virus that has wiped out most of the world's population. The cast includes Eric Dane, Adam Baldwin, Rhona Mitra, Charles Parnell, Christina Elmore, Michaela McManus, Sam Spruell, Travis Van Winkle, and Tracy Middendorf.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

USA’s ‘Rush’ Off to Slow Ratings Start; FX’s ‘Married’ Scores With Young Auds

18 July 2014 2:27 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On a Thursday night that saw both USA and FX debut a pair of series, the latter’s comedy “Married” fared best in hitting its target audience. It was slow going, though, for USA drama “Rush,” with the net doing a little better with “Satisfaction.”

According to “Live + same-day” Nielsen estimates, USA’s “Rush” (pictured) averaged a 0.39 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.704 million viewers overall in its 9 p.m. premiere. This puts it near the bottom of drama series premieres on cable this summer — ahead in the demo of AMC’s “Halt and Catch Fire” (0.34), but well behind most others, including TNT’s “The Last Ship” (1.18), FX’s “The Strain” (also 1.18), MTV’s “Finding Carter” (0.73), FX’s “Tyrant” (0.61) and ABC Family’s “Chasing Life” (0.53).

18 July 2014 1:36 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

TNT renewed Falling Skies for a fifth season of 10 episodes but that will be the end of the sci-fi series. TNT president Michael Wright said in a statement, "Falling Skies has begun an ambitious and thrilling story arc this summer as it sets the stage for next year's climactic final season."

On Falling Skies, the human resistance struggles for survival in the wake of a catastrophic alien invasion. The cast includes Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Colin Cunningham, Connor Jessup, Maxim Knight, Sarah Sanguin Carter, Mpho Koaho, and Seychelle Gabriel.

While the series is still performing well for TNT, the (current) fourth season is down by 14% in viewership when compared to season three. The audience for Falling Skies has been declining since the first season when it averaged 4.7 million viewers each week.

TNT Renews The Last Ship, Falling Skies And Major Crimes

18 July 2014 8:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The strangely elegant simplicity of TNT’s latest slogan, “Boom,” is evidently working out quite well for the network. Its summer dramas The Last Ship, Falling Skies and Major Crimes are all ratings successes, ranking among basic cable’s top five shows of the summer among total viewers and the older adults 25-54 demographic, and with all three shows soaring, TNT has become the number one cable network in primetime this summer. So, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that the network has opted to pick the shows up for additional seasons.

The Last Ship, from Michael Bay, centers on the crew of a naval destroyer grappling to come to terms with a transformed world after a global pandemic wipes out most of the human population. It’s currently in the midst of its 10-episode first season, which has been hugely successful, standing as the highest rated »
