Stars To Attend Face Forward’s Star Studded September 22nd Gala

Face Forward is thrilled to announce the expansion of their mission of providing reconstructive surgery and counseling services to include Veterans of War in addition to their annual fundraising gala September 22nd at the Beverly Wilshire.

The charity has been growing with its service offerings by recently treating the charity’s first transgender survivor of human trafficking, multiple international patients and growing partnerships for educational and counseling services.

Will Donald Trump win another Emmy for Alec Baldwin?

Will Donald Trump win another Emmy for Alec Baldwin?
Donald J. Trump has been nominated for two Primetime Emmys. They were back-to-back bids in 2004 and 2005 for Outstanding Reality-Competition Programme for “The Apprentice.” He lost both times to the team behind “The Amazing Race.” While Trump won’t be winning an Emmy any time soon, Alec Baldwin could prevail again for his uncanny portrayal of the Potus in various “Saturday Night Live” sketches.

Baldwin is defending his title of Best Comedy Supporting Actor. Last year’s win marked his third Emmy. He previously took home Best Comedy Actor awards in 2008 and 2009, both for “30 Rock.” In all, he has reaped 19 Emmy nominations. While three trophies from that many bids may not seem like a great return, Baldwin is clearly popular with Emmy voters. He was the first actor to be nominated (and win) for specifically playing a President on SNL.

All the other “SNL” nominees have contended for playing various characters on the show.

Emmy episode analysis: Louie Anderson (‘Baskets’) has a surprisingly eventful ‘Thanksgiving’
Louie Anderson (“Baskets”) won the Emmy for Best Comedy Supporting Actor in 2016, but after losing last year’s competition he’s back in the category looking to reclaim his title. He received his third consecutive nomination for portraying Christine Baskets, the mother of feuding identical twins Chip and Dale (Zach Galifianakis) on FX’s “Baskets.” For this year’s race Anderson has submitted the episode “Thanksgiving” for consideration.

At the beginning of the episode Christine is served with a subpoena on Thanksgiving notifying her that Dale is suing her. Then Chip tells her that he’ll be spending the holiday with his friend Martha (Martha Kelly) and her family. Christine tries to connect with her boyfriend in Denver and her two other children, Cody and Logan, but to no avail. Facing a lonely holiday, Christine tries to write hymns for the new church she is attending.

Exposure follows a rookie Detroit African-American female cop who stumbles upon corrupt officers who are murdering a drug dealer, an incident captured by her body cam.

Facebook Hazed, Kelly Kahl Singed, John Oliver Jests, Donald Trump Looms At TCA

  • Deadline
Facebook made its TCA debut in hopes of talking up Facebook Watch, but wound up swatting at questions about its distribution of conspiracy peddler InfoWars. Netflix and Amazon returned to the semi-annual TV confab after being Mia for two years.

Broadcasters took a back seat, literally and figuratively, at this year’s summer press tour, with ABC and NBC’s presence shrinking to half a day each that wound down the 15-day event. But CBS programming chief Kelly Kahl may have clocked the most headlines just by virtue of showing up, as his boss is under investigation over allegations of sexual misconduct.

After getting trashed over its Cambridge Analytica data scandal, then hitting a record stock price on news of its biggest sports streaming deal yet, Facebook was given a place of honor in the early days of TCA when journalists are at their brightest. Facebook presented no program casts and creators,

Jeremy Piven Re-Lists Malibu Beach House at Reduced Price (Exclusive)
After more than a year on the market with an in-hindsight pie-in-the-sky initial asking price of $10.495 million that incrementally dropped to a still too aggressive $8.995 million, Jeremy Piven has engaged the services of a new, high-profile real estate agent and re-listed his beach front residence in Malibu, Calif., with a once-again reduced price of $8.5 million. The former “Entourage” star, whose CBS series “Wisdom of the Crowd” was cancelled last year during its freshman season amid mounting allegations of sexual assault, which the actor has denied, purchased the 4,404-square-foot, three-story home in 2004 for $3.5 million and the four-bedroom and 3.5-bathroom residence, along one of Malibu’s most sought after streets, according the marketing materials, had also been available in recent years as a furnished short-term rental at prices that fluctuated between $30,000 and $50,000 per month.

2017-18 TV Series Ratings Rankings: NFL Football, ‘Big Bang’ Top Charts

  • Deadline
CBSThe Big Bang Theory will finish the 2017-2018 TV season as the country’s most watched series with an average of 18.634 million viewers. NBC’s NFL Sunday Night Football is the season’s highest-rated series in the key 18-49 demographic, with a 6.2 rating; it also takes the No. 2 spot in overall audience (18.285M).

In the demo, NBC’s sophomore series This is Us (5.4) follows football, while Big Bang ranks No. 5 (4.4).

In a TV season that re-defined “new” and “canceled,” Roseanne was the most successful “new” series launch, ranking No. 3 in total viewers (17.815M) and in the demo (5.0). Its mid-March launch made headlines, outstripping every scripted series of the season except the post-Super Bowl episode of This Is Us.

Tony Hale (‘Arrested Development’) could be second Best Comedy Supporting Actor Emmy winner for two shows

Tony Hale (‘Arrested Development’) could be second Best Comedy Supporting Actor Emmy winner for two shows
Tony Hale won’t win a third Best Comedy Supporting Actor Emmy for “Veep” this year, since the series is sitting out the season, but he could take home a third career statuette for his other Emmy-winning comedy, “Arrested Development.” If Hale does manage to pull it off, he’d join Art Carney as the only multiple winners of the category for two different shows.

While the early years of the Emmys didn’t have genre-specific acting categories, Carney won the first three supporting actor awards: two for “The Jackie Gleason Show” and one for “The Honeymooners.” Since the latter sitcom was based on the popular recurring sketch of the same name on “The Jackie Gleason Show” and Carney played Gleason’s sidekick Ed Norton on both, along with other sketch characters on the variety show, Hale would be the first multiple winner for playing two different characters on two different,

Instinct Renewed for Season 2 at CBS

Dr. Reinhart’s coming back for sophomore year: CBS has renewed Instinct for a second season, TVLine has learned.

The series, based on a James Patterson novel, stars the Good Wife alum as a CIA operative-turned-author/professor who returns to the agency when a serial killer starts using his first book as a murder tutorial. The show recently made headlines for its April 1 episode, which contained a scene that bore many similarities to a Season 5 installment of Bones.

Instinct‘s fellow CBS freshman series Living Biblically was pulled from the schedule — usually a precursor to cancellation — in April. Meanwhile, Wisdom of the Crowd

Wisdom of the Crowd: Cancelled; No Season Two for Jeremy Piven Series

It's official. CBS has cancelled the Wisdom of the Crowd TV show after one short season of 13 episodes.

On the Bubble 2018: Which Broadcast TV Shows Will Be Canceled and Which Will Be Renewed?

  • The Wrap
On the Bubble 2018: Which Broadcast TV Shows Will Be Canceled and Which Will Be Renewed?
April TV ratings bring May cancellations — but sometimes last-minute renewals, too.

Mid-spring marks the time of year when at-risk shows must sweat out their fates — sometimes right up until networks announce their fall schedules to advertisers at their upfront presentations in May. Optimism has its place in Hollywood, but it ranks somewhere between actual advertising money and the feel-good awards that can sometimes keep low-rated shows alive.

Generally, top-performing shows from each broadcast network have already received their votes of confidence for another season, and the worst performers were snuffed out months ago. But then there are the bubble shows, which could really go either way.

Their fates come down to lots of hard-to-quantify factors: momentum, reviews, how much they cost to make, how much money the people who watch them make, syndication situations, diversity, and what networks have to replace them. And then there are executives’ personal tastes. It’s part science, part crapshoot.

TheWrap is here to help make sense of it all, charting below what scripted series have already been renewed on each of the English-language broadcast networks, what’s been canceled or just ended, and which way each of the many remaining decisions will likely lean.

All ratings in this story come from the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic, and count a week’s worth of delayed viewing where available.

NBC

Every network has to cancel some shows to make way for promising pilots — even the highest-rated broadcaster. NBC just needs to get going already.

Here, “Champions” and “Taken” are obviously getting the axe, but scrapping two shows probably won’t clear enough brush. “Timeless” is likely to join them in the canceled pile (again), and we don’t expect a fan backlash to work on Bob Greenblatt this time.

“Great News,” “A.P. Bio,” “Rise,” “The Brave” and “Good Girls” all appear to be truly on the bubble. Tina Fey’s “Great News” has its auspices going for it, but that was the excuse for bringing it back last year. The ratings don’t justify taking another flyer.

Lackluster as its own performance as been, “A.P. Bio” will probably squeak in to fill NBC’s “edgy” comedy slot. We believe “Rise” is on-brand enough for the network and a solid scripted partner for TV’s top singing competition. “The Brave” probably did enough in its time slot to justify another go, and “Good Girls” feels enough of-the-moment to return.

Beyond those, “The Blacklist” basically comes down to if James Spader wants to do more, while “Blindspot” performs well-enough for a Friday show to warrant another nod.

The rest are Dick Wolf shows, and why would those go away?

In chart form:

Also Read: CBS Renews 'Survivor,' 'The Amazing Race,' 9 More Series

CBS

CBS has already given a vote of confidence to freshman dramas “S.W.A.T.” and “Seal Team,” both of which have performed admirably.

The entire “NCIS” franchise also made the cut, as did the Dr. Phil-produced “Bull,” awards-contender “Mom,” and the network’s Friday drama line-up. “The Big Bang Theory” had already been renewed through next season, and new partner “Young Sheldon” became one of the season’s first renewals earlier this year.

As for CBS’s other new shows, the high-concept comedy “Me, Myself & I” was a quick goner, and “Wisdom of the Crowd” was buried after sexual assault accusations against star Jeremy Piven.

Johnny Galecki’s “Living Biblically” premiered midseason in the timeslot previously occupied by “Me, Myself & I” to similarly disappointing ratings and soon followed it to cancellation.

Mark Feuerstein’s “9Jkl” also made little dent on Monday nights when it debuted in the fall. With “Young Sheldon” as CBS’ only new comedy hit, returning players “Kevin Can Wait,” “Man With a Plan” and “Life in Pieces” should make it through, though none are a sure bet. It’s worth point out here that “Life in Pieces” is a 20th Century Fox show, and non-ownership very rarely helps.

Perennial bubble show “Criminal Minds,” meanwhile, also has the misfortune of being an outside production. A decision there will likely come down to the wire, but we’re betting a 14th season is in the cards.

The Katharine McPhee-led “Scorpion” seems even less of a lock, though a decision will depend on the network’s developing pipeline and the performance of “Code Black” and “Elementary,” both of which are yet to premiere. We’re told “Scorpion’s” fanbase has been particularly vocal about keeping that show on the air, which could theoretically do the trick.

ABC

This season, ABC had two big success stories, the freshman medical drama “The Good Doctor” and the mega-hit “Roseanne” revival, and the network was quick to renew both.

But with a number of its long-running shows coming to an end — “The Middle,” “Once Upon a Time” and the network-defining “Scandal” are all concluding their runs this season — and few other breakout hits, ABC will have to take a long, hard look at its slate as it decides what to keep and cut loose.

Few of the network’s new shows have stuck, with the comedy “The Mayor” pulled from the schedule early and “Inhumans” limping through its eight-episode season last fall, following a heavily hyped but critically reviled premiere.

“Alex Inc.” and the Shondaland legal drama “For the People” all failed to make an impact in the ratings and are unlikely to return, and the high-concept drama “The Crossing,” whose time-traveling refugees were rejected by viewers, was dead on arrival. Though we don’t believe “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” will ultimately be saved for next season, strong support from the highest levels at ABC makes it an actual possibility.

Midseason entries “Splitting Up Together” and “Deception” have both managed to perform well enough to get another shot in an otherwise disappointing season. Those two shows are examples of when it is better to be a bubble show on ABC than on NBC or CBS.

With “Scandal” going off the air and Shonda Rhimes decamping to Netflix, ABC will look to hold on to reliable performers, including “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away With Murder.” “Grey’s” spinoff “Station 19” has also proven a solid (enough) partner for the medical drama. Thumbs up to those three.

Fox

Fox got a bunch of no-brainer renewals out of the way, and this was always going to be “New Girl’s” farewell to fans. “The X-Files” could return at any time, but everyone definitely sounds done with that for now — and maybe even forever, this time.

“The Mick” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” should make it back based on creative. “Star” has proven to be a good partner for “Empire,” so expect more there too. Additionally, “The Resident” ratings are a win for Fox, people seem to like “Lethal Weapon,” and “La to Vegas” should fly at least once more before being grounded.

Don’t be shocked if this ends up being the last season for “The Last Man on Earth,” but right now we think Will Forte and his sports balls will make the cut to come back.

“Ghosted” is probably the most interesting case of Fox’s numerous shows on the bubble. Though the Adam Scott-Craig Robinson vehicle’s demo number — a 1.6 — looks pretty good at first blush, the first-season sitcom was inflated by some NFL football this fall. Mucking up the waters even more, “Ghosted” shifted showrunners in the middle of Season 1, and it still has some episodes to air. Fox is holding tight on a decision until execs see how the new version of the new series fares.

As for “The Exorcist,” well, it’s high time to exorcise that Friday show. “Lucifer,” which is not a Fox-owned series (something that one could argue probably won’t matter anyway after this Disney deal goes through), seems like the next man out. Put the Devil back in Hell.

The CW

The youngest-skewing broadcast network renewed 10 series in one fell swoop, including newbie “Black Lightning,” which has performed pretty well in its first year. Unfortunately, The CW cannot say the same about fellow freshmen “Valor” and “Life Sentence,” which have both been rough.

Star Lucy Hale has been lobbying her large fanbase to save “Life Sentence,” though we doubt that’ll be enough. “Valor” averages the same poor rating, and that one doesn’t even have a Lucy Hale.

The real coin-flip here is “iZombie.” Though the show’s Nielsen number among adults 18-49 doesn’t really justify another season, it is totally possible that The CW adding Sunday nights to its national schedule next season will. Mark Pedowitz now requires more content than the network has needed in nine years.

Also of note here, “The Originals” is a planned ending. Based on last night’s premiere numbers, that’s probably a good idea.

Anthony Carrigan (HBO’s ‘Barry’) as henchman with a heart of gold steals scenes from ‘SNL’ veteran Bill Hader

Anthony Carrigan (HBO’s ‘Barry’) as henchman with a heart of gold steals scenes from ‘SNL’ veteran Bill Hader
One of the biggest scene-stealers for this TV season is Anthony Carrigan, who plays a mobster alongside “SNL” veteran and Emmy nominee Bill Hader in HBO’s buzz-worthy “Barry.” Audiences are already noticing his star-making turn as NoHo Hank, a bald, tattooed Chechen thug that also happens to be a polished henchman with a heart of gold.

If he is on the Emmy ballot this summer, voters love in the comedy supporting categories when a person is a flamboyant, over-the-top character. Just ask Tituss Burgess (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Jeremy Piven (“Entourage”), Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”) and Sean Hayes (“Will & Grace”), who were all Emmy nominated early on in their respective shows’ runs as standout comedic talents, often out-shining their lead actors.
