Thursday Ratings: ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Dips but Stays Strong for McDreamy Farewell

1 May 2015 9:37 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Male-friendly shows “The Big Bang Theory” and “The Blacklist” took a hit opposite coverage of the NFL draft last night, while ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” saw good results for a two-hour episode that dealt with the aftermath of last week’s storyline shocker which saw Patrick Dempsey’s Derek Shepherd exit the series. While “Big Bang” remained the night’s top program, “Blacklist” hit a series low for the second straight week.

As for the NFL draft, it averaged a combined 5.1 rating on Espn and NFL Network, down about 25% from last year. The primary interest in last night’s opening round came in the first two picks, which came during primetime’s opening half-hour, and there weren’t as many storylines or big-name players drafted later in the first round.

At CBS, “The Big Bang Theory” averaged a 3.2 rating/12 share in adults 18-49 and 13.4 million viewers overall, according to »

The Blacklist Review: “Quon Zhang” (Season 2, Episode 20)

30 April 2015 11:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Let’s be honest, if you come across a guy digging up a grave in the middle of the night in the semi-darkness, do yourself a favor and leave them be. This week’s The Blacklist dabbled in the icky world of grave-robbing, and while the intention was certainly superstitious, it had nothing to do with Frankenstein, which is the only socially acceptable reason for grave-robbing if there is such a thing. There’s not, by the way. If this week’s Blacklister seems weak on the balance, it’s only because this is a “moving the furniture” episode. Simply put, The Blacklist was putting key pieces into place for the final two outings of the season.

First, though, let’s take a minute to salute James Spader, who made his bow on theater screens everywhere tonight as the evil robot Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The smooth sounds »

James Spader Talks Playing a Robot and Using Motion Capture Technology for Avengers: Age of Ultron—Watch Now!

29 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Audiences won't actually see James Spader's face in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but they'll certainly recognize his voice. What fans may not realize, however, is that the 55-year-old actor filmed the robot's movements, too. E! News' Alicia Quarles exclusively interviewed the cast on set in London last summer. Spader had filmed his first scene in April, when he was shooting the first season of NBC's The Blacklist. "I had to come in to do a sequence with Scarlett Johansson. So I flew in, quickly did a sort of introductory tutorial on the process, and then the next day shot the sequence and then back to The Blacklist." How did it feel to bring the android to life, so to »

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Ratings: Thursday Shocker Lifts ABC Show to 7-Month High

24 April 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Thursday night’s shocker — well to some anyway — on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” helped boost the veteran medical drama to its largest audience since its September season premiere.

Thursday’s episode saw the exit of one of the original castmembers, a plot point that had been leaked earlier Thursday in an Entertainment Weekly report and then confirmed by ABC late last night. The magazine hits newsstands on Friday, but most subscribers get it on Thursday, and many “Grey’s” fans knew what was coming in last night’s episode.

That certainly helped pump up the ratings for “Grey’s” on the opening night of the May sweep. According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Grey’s Anatomy” averaged a 2.8 rating/10 share in adults 18-49 and 9.4 million viewers overall in the 8 o’clock hour — matching the show’s best demo score since its season premiere in September and also drawing »

James Spader: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

24 April 2015 1:12 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

Why become an actor? Some people do it for the craft or the fame or because they can’t see themselves doing anything else. If his IMDb page is anything to go by, James Spader does it for the money: “Every single film I’ve ever done I’ve taken because of the money. Every single one. I’m not ashamed to say that.”

Admittedly this quote comes from all the way back in 1990 – pre Stargate – but it’s a refreshing display of honesty from the star whom Rolling Stone recently called “The Strangest Man on TV”. This is not to cast aspersions on his integrity – by most accounts, Jimmy, as he likes to be called, has an obsession for detail that can make him difficult to work with. Indeed, from snarky-yet-sincere legal genius Alan Shore in Boston Legal, a role for which he won two Emmys, to jubilant, »

The Blacklist Review: “Leonard Caul” (Season 2, Episode 19)

23 April 2015 9:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a brief two week break, The Blacklist is back. This week’s episode an intriguing entry that moved along the main storyline concerning the Fulcrum and the newly branded “Cabal” and managed to do so entertainingly while keeping Raymond Reddington relatively sidelined. Could the FBI heroes of the show manage to save the day without the not-so-gentle nudging and snide commentary from Red? That was the question of the week, as The Blacklist aimed to provide answers while not really giving up too many of its secrets. The greater picture – the goals of the Cabal, Agent Keen’s importance to Red, and the true nature of their relationship – is still up for debate.

In case you had forgotten, Red has been shot! The Director, tired of Red’s nonsense, called his bluff and had a hit team dispatched to eliminate him, just as Liz was about to turn over »
