‘Manifest’ Gets Order For Three Additional Episodes From NBC
NBC has picked up three episodes of breakout new drama Manifest, bringing the total freshman episode count to 16.

The size of the order, which is below full-season 22 episodes, is not surprising. Shorter-run seasons — between 13 and 18 episodes — have become the norm for heavily serialized broadcast dramas, including NBC’s This Is Us, Fox’s Empire and ABC’s How To Get Away with Murder.

So far this fall “Manifest” has averaged a 3.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 17.2 million viewers in L+7, making it television’s #1 new series in both measures. Counting all entertainment programs on broadcast and cable, “Manifest” ranks #4 in L+7 adult 18-49 averages behind only “This Is Us,” “The Walking Dead” and “The Big Bang Theory” and #2 in total viewers behind only “Big Bang.” Adding in alternate platform viewing raises the “Manifest” L+7 18-49 rating to a 5.1.

“Manifest” stars Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise,

Whatever Happened to the Cast of “Angel from Hell?”

Angel from Hell would be kind of a contradiction in terms unless you’re talking about Jane Lynch as the angel since, let’s face it, almost every character she’s played as been someone you’d love to see slapped by another female cast member for one thing or another. But for all that you still can’t deny that Lynch is great since she’s the type of person that makes you stare at her wide-eyed since you can’t really believe she said that or went there. That would probably be why she’d be the perfect angel that seemed sent from the opposite direction

‘The Good Place’ Reinvents Itself Yet Again, Hiding Its Best Easter Eggs in the End Credits
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “The Good Place” Season 2, Episode 4, “Jeremy Bearimy.”]

On Thursday’s episode, “The Good Place” reinvented itself once again and bid farewell to its previous narrative format during a Bon Voyage party for Tahani (Jameela Jamil). When Eleanor (Kristen Bell) and her friends come upon the interdimensional door between Earth and the rest of the immortal universe, the demon Michael (Ted Danson) and his helper Janet (D’Arcy Carden) have to come clean about their experiences in The Bad Place and their rebooted chance at redemption.

Unfortunately, in doing so, they’ve doomed the four humans to being damned because now their actions would be tainted with the knowledge of an afterlife. After each of the mortals spiral out in various ways, Eleanor finally comes to the conclusion that even if she’s fated for The Bad Place, she can at least help others on Earth not meet the same fate.

‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ Recreated an Iconic ‘Seinfeld’ Scene, and Here Are the Two Versions Together

‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ Recreated an Iconic ‘Seinfeld’ Scene, and Here Are the Two Versions Together
Hearing a laugh track on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” is always jarring. Hearing it as part of a carefully crafted recreation of an all-time great sitcom moment makes a little more sense.

As part of this week’s “The Gang Does a Clip Show” shenanigans, the show took the opportunity to recreate a classic scene from the iconic “The Contest” episode of “Seinfeld.” Lauded throughout the two and a half decades since it first aired, “The Contest” famously never explicitly outlines what each of the characters are refraining from doing. Neither do Charlie, Dee, Frank, Mac, or Dennis as they sit around Paddy’s Pub waiting for a phone to update.

Murphy Brown is calling in some celebrity reinforcements: The CBS revival has lined up a number of bold-faced names to guest-star later this season, including Bette Midler in a reprise of her Emmy-nominated role on the original series.

British Government Sets Up $78 Million Fund to Boost Children’s Content

The British government has announced plans for a £60 million ($78.3 million) fund to boost production of new children’s television content.

What Is the Website Yesmovies and Is it Legal?

Yesmovies is another streaming site that delivers B-movies, Indie movies, and TV programs for free but the drawback is that it’s not entirely legal. In fact you could say that it’s not at all legal since most if not all of the material is not obtained in a legal manner and could land anyone watching the shows and movies in a great deal of trouble for merely watching on the site. The allure of it of course is that it offers everything for ‘free’ which is usually a dangerous proposition since it tends to come with add-ons that obliterate the
