Here Are the 5 Broadcast TV Shows We’re Still Awaiting Decisions On

Is “Ghosted” coming back?

That’s a question on viewers’ minds as upfronts week comes to a close, with Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS and The CW all having announced their fall programming schedules as of Thursday. ‘Cause some of those slates have holes in them, meaning the statuses of almost half a dozen shows on broadcast television are still up in the air.

Look, we can accept the fact that not every series will be saved like “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” — not every show should be. But come on, networks — minus ABC and The CW, who have already killed or renewed everything they’re going to — fans need to hear one way or another whether their favorite programs will be returning this fall, especially for ones that have a crazy-devoted fanbase.

Code Black: Season Three Ratings

In its freshman installment, the Code Black TV show earned low ratings for a CBS TV series. Instead of cancelling though, the network renewed it, with the requisite cast changes. Its numbers fell further last year, but it still wasn't cancelled, probably thanks to licensing deal concessions. Will the third season see the audience grow or further diminish, and if so, how low can it go? Will Code Black be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned. A CBS medical drama, Code Black stars Marcia Gay Harden, Luis Guzmán, Rob Lowe, Boris Kodjoe, Harry Ford, Benjamin Hollingsworth, William Allen Young, Emily Tyra, Noah Gray-Cabey, Emily Alyn Lind, and Moon Bloodgood.

Ratings: ‘Code Black’ Season 3 Premiere Can’t Break Away From ‘Chicago Pd’ Rerun

CBS’ “Code Black” didn’t have a ton of life with Wednesday’s Season 3 premiere, though delayed viewing should help the 10 p.m. show.

Code Black” had a 0.7 rating/3 share in the key 18-49 demographic, which could only tie NBC’s “Chicago P.D.” repeat. The CBS medical drama did finish first (alone) in its time slot among total viewers, tallying 5.6 million. That decent all-in eyeball count means “Code Black,” like many CBS shows, appeals primarily to older viewers.

The Rob Lowe series started off this spring run way down from where it began its prior season, which was in the higher-rated fall. That September 28, 2016 Season 2 premiere received a 1.2 rating and 6.4 million viewers. Though it is admittedly a flawed comparison because of the different scheduling decisions, that represents a 42 percent decline among adults 18-49, which is still an advertiser’s target age group for primetime broadcast commercials.

With a steady “Empire,” Fox again won Wednesday in the main demo. CBS topped the day part’s overall audience averages.

Fox was first in ratings with a 1.4 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 4.5 million, according to preliminary numbers. “Empire” at 8 earned a 1.6/7 and 5.3 million viewers. At 9, “Star” received a 1.2/5 and 3.8 million viewers.

CBS was second in ratings with a 1.0/4 and in viewers with 6.5 million. “Survivor” at 8 posted a 1.6/7 and 7.8 million viewers. At 9, “Seal Team” had a 0.8/3 and 6.3 million viewers. “Code Black” followed.

NBC was third in ratings with a 0.7/3 and in viewers with 4.1 million. “The Blacklist” at 8 got a 0.8/3 and 5.2 million viewers. Reruns followed.

ABC was fourth in ratings with a 0.6/3 and in viewers with 3.2 million. After a bunch of repeats, a new “Designated Survivor” at 10 managed a 0.5/2 and 3.4 million viewers.

Univision was fifth in ratings with a 0.5/2 and in viewers with 1.5 million.

Telemundo and The CW tied for sixth in ratings, both with a 0.4/2. Telemundo was sixth in total viewers with 1.2 million, The CW was seventh with 1.1 million.

For The CW, “Riverdale” at 8 had a 0.4/2 and 1.2 million viewers. At 9, “The Originals” got a 0.4/2 and 1 million viewers.

Code Black: Season Three Viewer Votes

Code Black Season 3 Episode 1 Review: Third Year

  • TVfanatic
Things might be getting a little meta this season. 

One of the new residents introduced on Code Black Season 3 Episode 1 is filming a documentary ... something along the lines of what Ryan McGarry made about the Los Angeles County Hospital ER.

But he's not the only newbie, and boy did they have a hell of a first day.

Pepper definitely had it the worst. Who gets accidentally dosed with fentanyl on their first day?! I hope her insurance and sick time kicks in right away. 

Despite her being, well, unconscious for most of the hour, we learned a surprising amount about the new female resident. In addition to being a little meek and self-doubting, her real name is Andrea and she had throat cancer as a kid.

Rob Lowe’s Code Black doc is getting some fresh air, and he’s doing so alongside new series regular Moon Bloodgood (Falling Skies).

In this exclusive video from Wednesday’s Season 3 premiere (CBS, 10/9c), paramedic Roxanne (Bloodgood) doesn’t seem too happy to be saddled with a “ride-along guy” in her new field partner Dr. Willis. Compounding the awkwardness, Willis grabs the half-eaten burger Rox is about to throw away, and then consumes it himself — after checking to make sure the medic doesn’t have any signs of a contagious disease. Their inauspicious first meeting is interrupted by a distress call,

Super Troopers 2 Review

With Roseanne back on the air after 20 years, and shows and films like Stranger Things, It and Ready Player One relying so heavily on their nostalgia factor, it’s not too surprising that we got a second Super Troopers. 17 years ago, the Broken Lizard troupe came out of nowhere, landing a deal with Fox Searchlight, grossing an unbelievable amount of money, and creating a cult hit in the process. Much of their charm feels reminiscent to that of Monty Python’s. But just as a second Holy Grail would impair the impact of the first, Super Troopers 2 has little worth laughing at other than a couple of retold jokes.

There’s no doubt in my mind that Super Troopers could have become this generation’s Police Academy. However, Jay Chandrasekhar and the rest of the Broken Lizard boys extinguished that fire when they abandoned these stoner policemen to make

‘Super Troopers 2′: Rob Lowe on How the Sequel Compares to the Original

It was a busy day on the Super Troopers 2 set back in 2016, as a whole host of extras prepared to fill out a party scene that was set to begin shooting. But amongst all the frenzy, it was nearly impossible not to notice one thing: Rob Lowe's hair. Voluminous and layered, it was the kind of style that might only have worked circa the late '90s, a flagrantly dated choice that told me almost everything I needed to know about Lowe's curious new character Guy LeFranc, a Canadian mountie who, through a series of requisite hijinks, …

Super Troopers 2 – Review

How many penis jokes can you fit into a film? Super Troopers 2 tries to answer the question by pushing the subject to the max (that’s not a euphemism). The male parts get kicked, tasered, threatened of being shaved, discussed ad nauseam, and even boxed. Why they are the centerpiece of so many jokes could be analyzed on a deeper level, but that would require giving these jokes more thought than The Broken Lizard crew gave the script.

The lazy script – attributed to the entire Broken Lizard collective – doesn’t just reach for such low hanging fruit when it comes to genitalia, farts, and sex, but also in the way of making fun of Canadians. In fact, that’s the majority of the film. After a fantastical and amusing opening sequence that features a couple of cameos, the state troopers from Vermont head North across the border in order

Chances are you either squealed with delight upon the news of a second Super Troopers flick, before strapping on your bulletproof cup and threatening to pistol-whip the next guy that says "shenanigans" ... or you shrugged. They call 'em cult movies for a reason, and the 2001 tale by the Broken Lizard troupe of Vermont highway patrolmen-behaving-badly is really a you're-in-or-you're-out phenomenon.

11 Actors and Directors Share the Films That Define Them, From Barry Jenkins to Jessica Chastain, Jonah Hill, and More

FilmStruck, the streaming platform from Turner Classic Movies that specializes in arthouse and foreign films, has started a viral movement on social media with the #FilmStruck4 challenge. The company posted to its official Twitter page on April 17 an announcement asking people to share the four films that define them. The challenge quickly grew to include some of the best actors and directors working today, from Guillermo del Toro to Jessica Chastain, Barry Jenkins, Zoe Kazan, Edgar Wright, and more.

Del Toro had a hard time narrowing down his picks to just four, so he posted two separate posts with the eight films that define him. Fans of the director won’t be surprised to see Jean Cocteau’s “Beauty and the Beast” and Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” included among his choices. Jessica Chastain split her list into two, one for performances that define her and one for movies.

Second Opinion – Super Troopers 2 (2018)

Super Troopers 2, 2018.

Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar.

Starring Erik Stolhanske, Jay Chandrasekhar, Steve Lemme, Paul Sotor, Kevin Heffernan, Brian Cox, Marisa Coughlan, Bruce McCulloch, Lynda Carter, Rob Lowe, Hayes MacArthur, Tyler Labine, and Will Sasso.

Synopsis:

When a border dispute arises between the U.S. and Canada, the Super Troopers are tasked with establishing a Highway Patrol station in the disputed area.

We catch up with the titular Vermont Highway patrol officers as Governor Jessman (erstwhile Wonder Woman Lynda Carter) offers them a shot at redemption for past slip-ups. Their mission: to take over policing duties in a small French-Canadian town recently remanded to the U.S. thanks to a snafu involving border markers. (Canada seems to have become regular comedic fodder because its relation to the U.S. feels tranquil enough for some semi-good-natured mockery.) Soon, the Troopers butt heads with the Canadian Mounties while attempting to unravel the
