‘The Nevers’ Debuts to Best Ratings for Original Series on HBO Max With 1.4 Million Viewers
HBO’s newest series “The Nevers” drew 1.4 million viewers across all platforms, including HBO Max, on Sunday night. That matched the overall premiere viewership for last summer’s HBO series “Lovecraft Country.”

Those views are spread out between the linear HBO channel, including Sunday night replays, as well as streaming service HBO Max. On HBO Max specifically, “The Nevers” had the best opening for an HBO original series, surpassing both “Lovecraft Country” and “The Undoing,” the latter of which went on to be HBO’s most-watched series of 2020.

The finale of “The Undoing” drew 3 million viewers in November, HBO’s biggest audience since the Season 2 finale of “Big Little Lies” in 2019.

The Nevers” is set in Victorian England, during a time when London is beset by the “Touched” people (mostly women) who suddenly manifest abnormal abilities — some charming, some very disturbing. Among them are Amalia True (Laura Donnelly), a mysterious,

Snowfall Recap: The Road to the Season 4 Finale Is Paved With Death

Snowfall Recap: The Road to the Season 4 Finale Is Paved With Death
Death is not a new concept on Snowfall.

In Season 4 alone, fans have watched the violent deaths of an innocent 5-year-old girl and Fatback, the goodhearted but gullible man who was willing to take the fall for her homicide right up until his own. That said, Wednesday’s trio of murders in the season’s penultimate installment, titled “Sleeping Dogs,” felt different and more shocking somehow. Maybe that’s because two of the deaths could’ve been avoided.

A Million Little Things Recap: Sophie's Teacher Does the Unthinkable
I am not always on board with Gary Mendez’s go-with-your-gut thing. And I know violence is never the answer. But oh man, in this week’s A Million Little Things, when Gary says he wants to end the man who violated Sophie? I feel it, too.

The episode centers on the way that Sophie’s guitar teacher, Peter, groomed her, did something disgustingly abhorrent to her and then made her feel like the whole situation was her fault. It’s horrifying.

Televisa-Univision Union Sets Stage for Spanish-Language Streaming Giant

Televisa-Univision Union Sets Stage for Spanish-Language Streaming Giant
The union of Mexico’s Televisa and Univision has been considered by both sides for decades. The impetus to finally make a deal come together was a mutual desire to create a Spanish-language streaming giant serving the U.S., Mexico and the rest of the Spanish-speaking world.

In short, the merger of Univision with most of Televisa’s content and distribution assets in a $4.8 billion deal unveiled April 13 was fueled by the same motivation that brought Disney and 21st Century Fox together in 2019 and sent Viacom and CBS Corp. back down the aisle the same year. Together, the Spanish-language stalwarts

‘My Love: Six Stories of True Love’ Review: A Beautiful, Tender Look at Lives Spent at Each Other’s Side

‘My Love: Six Stories of True Love’ Review: A Beautiful, Tender Look at Lives Spent at Each Other’s Side
One of the quickest ways to get to know someone is to see how they fill their days. What separates “My Love: Six Stories of True Love” from most other single-subject documentary projects is the way it zeroes in on what makes up a typical day in the life of a stranger. Told across the globe and concentrating on a half-dozen couples, “My Love” offers more than just a collection of anecdotes. It’s a living history; a celebration of an emotion that exists in more forms that any one set of stories could possibly hold.

These couples — located in the United States, Spain, Japan, South Korea, Brazil, and India — have all been together for more than 40 years. The connective familiarity that’s common to all of them is also present in Moyoung Jin’s 2013 film “My Love, Don’t Cross That River,” which chronicled a Korean couple whose marriage

HBO’s ‘Our Towns’ Documentary Only Sees Small Town America Through Rose-Colored Glasses

HBO’s ‘Our Towns’ Documentary Only Sees Small Town America Through Rose-Colored Glasses
The video above was produced by IndieWire’s Creative Producer Leonardo Adrian Garcia. The review below relates to HBO’s documentary film “Our Towns,” a portrait of America’s small cities and towns that chronicles the rise of civic and economic reinvention across six chosen communities. Based on the book “Our Towns: A 100,000-Mile Journey Into the Heart of America” by James and Deborah Fallows, the documentary is available now from HBO.

Ben Travers, TV Critic: Libby, small towns hold a dear place in my heart, as I know they do yours. We’re both from towns off the beaten path. We’ve both since moved to “the big city”. And we both are vexed whenever anyone makes a statement about small town life without first stating where they’re from and, if their town proves unfamiliar (as it should), providing the population.
