‘The Boys’ Spinoff Ordered at Amazon, Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters Take Over as Showrunners
The planned spinoff of “The Boys” has officially been ordered to series at Amazon, Variety has confirmed.

In addition, Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters will take over as showrunners following the exit of Craig Rosenberg. Rosenberg is an executive producer on “The Boys” but departed the spinoff over creative differences.

Set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes (and run by Vought International), the untitled series is described as an irreverent, R-rated show that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities.

Jaz Sinclair, Lizze Broadway, Shane Paul McGhie, Aimee Carrero, Reina Hardesty, and Maddie Phillips have all previously been announced to star in the series.

Fazekas and Butters have previously served as co-showrunners on series like “Agent Carter,” “Emergence,” “Ressurection,” and “Reaper.” As a writing team,

Netflix Releases New Data on Most Popular TV Shows and Movies

Netflix Releases New Data on Most Popular TV Shows and Movies
Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s co-ceo and chief content officer, revealed what he said was the “most comprehensive look so far” at the streamer’s top 10 TV shows and movies.

Sarandos, in an appearance at Vox Media’s Code Conference at the Beverly Hilton, shared two slides. One showed the most popular Netflix shows based on its proprietary metric of the number of accounts that selected a given title in the first 28 days of release (and streamed for at least 2 minutes). A second showed total time spent viewing by hours within the initial 28-day window — engagement data Netflix has not released previously.

“We’re trying to be more transparent with talent, with the market,” Sarandos said. Netflix’s streaming data, he acknowledged, is “a big black box, mostly.”

Shonda Rhimes’ “Bridgerton” Season 1 scored as the No. 1 series based on both number of Netflix households and time spent viewing (in the initial

‘The Good Doctor’: A Patient Confuses — Then Shocks — in the Season 5 Premiere (Recap)
[Warning: The below contains Major spoilers for The Good Doctor Season 5 premiere “New Beginnings.”] The good news: Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) and Lea Dilallo (Paige Spara) are getting married (and it hopefully won’t end like her dreams). The bad news: There’s a big change coming to the hospital in The Good Doctor Season 5. But first, the joy: Lea takes a nightmare — a thunderstorm interrupting the ceremony — to kick off the premiere in stride, deciding they just won’t have an outdoor wedding. She’s taking care of all the planning, for the engagement party and the wedding. She wants to make it perfect, he tells Dr. Lim (Christina Chang) and Dr. Park (Will Yun Lee), while all he cares about is marrying her.

The proceedings inside the Dancing With the Stars ballroom took a dramatic turn on Monday night — and it had nothing to do with Season 30’s first elimination.

Ok, it had a little to do with that elimination; it’s never fun to be the first couple tangoing out of the competition. But the biggest twist of Week 2 transpired when — as reported earlier Monday — pro dancer Cheryl Burke contracted a breakthrough case of Covid-19, turning her and Cody Rigsby’s future in the competition into a big ol’ question mark.

NCIS Recap: Did Gibbs Get His Badge Back? Plus, Grade Gary Cole's Debut
This week on NCIS, the proverbial band got back together to help “dead” Gibbs hunt a killer, while Gary Cole made his debut as a person of surprising interest.

Convening at Thelma and Virgil’s barn, which Jimmy somewhat unwittingly converted into a mirror of HQ (using bales of hay for desks), McGee, Torres and Knight met up with Gibbs to dive into the serial killer case and the latest discovered victim. Vance, having found Kasie at an otherwise vacant office, showed up at the barn not so much to shut down the off-book investigation, but to offer Gibbs his gun and badge back.

Why ‘The Big Leap’ Dances Stand Out Even With All the Drama Brewing (Recap)

Why ‘The Big Leap’ Dances Stand Out Even With All the Drama Brewing (Recap)
[Warning: The below contains Major spoilers for The Big Leap Episode 2 “Classic Tragic Love Triangle.”] In just two episodes, Fox’s newest reality-show-within-a-fictional-dramedy The Big Leap serves classic tropes of not getting the part, romantic jealousy, and a drama-inducing producer who is constantly feeding an already rampant fire. All the while, we take in each character’s individual troubles and watch as their formerly ostracized lives begin to bleed together within the confines of a soundstage dance studio. Sporadic dance routines (sometimes fueled by the drama and other times used to cool off the heat) add a charming musical theater aspect, and snappy pandemic-related humor balances out the comedy leg of the dramedy. Below, we take a look at the new Fox series through a dancer’s perspective. The Auditions In the premiere, the audition montage is comfortingly familiar. We file through comically tragic auditions from a variety of characters — which provoke choreographer Monica Sullivan’s (Mallory Jansen

‘NCIS’: Gary Cole’s Debut Is Filled With Twists as the Serial Killer Case Continues (Recap)
[Warning: The below contains Major spoilers for NCIS Season 19 Episode 2 “Nearly Departed.”] The serial killer case takes quite a few turns — at least one we saw coming and others that were downright shocking — as NCIS Season 19 continues. As a result, Gary Cole’s introduction as FBI Special Agent Alden Parker takes a backseat (and not just because it reminds us so much of Michael Weatherly’s Dinozzo meeting Mark Harmon’s Gibbs in the “Baltimore” flashbacks that it isn’t quite original). As we learn soon enough, the team may know that Gibbs is alive, following his boat blowing up, but they’re letting the world think he could be dead so the serial killer thinks he succeeded. Still, at least two people aren’t fooled by Director Vance’s (Rocky Carroll) press conference. But exactly how is Gibbs working with the team on the case? With a badge and his NCIS weapon? Or under the radar?

Monday’s Bob Hearts Abishola saw two families become one, as the eponymous couple tied the knot in a traditional Nigerian ceremony. But before the wedding could take place, Bob and Abishola had to adhere to a number of traditions native to Abishola’s homeland.

The episode began with an introduction ceremony, which saw family matriarch Dottie formally introduce the Wheelers to Abishola’s relatives — and she managed to do it without speaking out of turn. Next, Uncle Tunde accompanied Bob to meet with Abishola’s father Obafemi. After Bob stated his case as Abishola’s suitor, he was presented
