Friday Ratings: Fox’s ‘Proven Innocent’ Starts Soft, But ‘Last Man Standing’ Tops Demos

Friday Ratings: Fox’s ‘Proven Innocent’ Starts Soft, But ‘Last Man Standing’ Tops Demos
Another Friday, another demo win for Fox’s Last Man Standing, as back-to-back episodes dominated the demo ratings shares, scoring a 1.1/6 and 6.12 million viewers at 8 PM, then staying strong with a 1.0/5 and 5.63 million at 8:30 PM.

But the twin knockouts didn’t particularly help Fox’s new legal drama Proven Innocent, which debuted to an 0.5/3 and 3.09 million at 9 PM, going up against tough competition elsewhere.

On CBS, the debut of Levy Tran as a new character on MacGyver saw it score an 0.7/4, but a huge 6.42 million in viewers. That spurred follower Hawaii Five-O to 0.8/4 and 7.27 million viewers, with 10 PM’s Blue Bloods scoring the night’s top total viewers with 8.87 million viewers and demos of 0.8/4.

CBS also won the overall network race, scoring an 0.8/4 and 7.52 million.

At ABC, the 8 PM Fresh Off The Boat had a 0.7/4 and 3.14 million viewers as the lead-in to Speechless, which had an 0.5/3 and 2.35 million viewers.

Why “The Simpsons” Is Going To Outlive All of Us

To be perfectly honest it’s not such a strong boast to say that The Simpsons might outlive us all, and that’s simply because when you think the show is about over it decides to go and get renewed and we’re back in the saddle again for another go. But the show hasn’t been without its issues throughout its long and storied past, since if you’ll remember it wasn’t the most loved show when it came on the Tracey Ullman Show to begin with. The animation back in that day wasn’t even close to what it is now, but the idea

‘The Walking Dead’ Review: The Solid ‘Omega’ Introduces This Season’s Big Bad

‘The Walking Dead’ Review: The Solid ‘Omega’ Introduces This Season’s Big Bad
[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for “The Walking Dead” Season 9 Episode 10, “Omega.”]

This Week On “The Walking Dead

The slow drip of information about the Whisperers continues in “Omega,” as Samantha Morton is rather convolutedly introduced as this season’s heavy, Alpha. It’s a solid episode, but the real question is which “Fantastic Beasts” cast member will join “The Walking Dead” next? Fingers crossed for Colin Farrell.

Man Is The True Monster

It was proposed in last week’s review that Lydia was putting on an act and she was much tougher than she let on. “Omega” wastes no time in revealing this to be true, as she gently presses Henry for information on the other settlements while filling him in on her tragic backstory. She and her parents were stuck in a group emergency shelter shortly after the zombie outbreak. Her father, Frank, was abusive and cynical, while her mother would go to any lengths to protect them,

The Walking Dead Recap: Scary Tales — Plus, Alpha, From Mother to Monster
“Some people ain’t meant to be parents,” Daryl opined in Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead. And once we’d heard Lydia’s stories about her mother — and these were just the chilling tip of the iceberg — there could be no doubt that the she-beast who called herself Alpha was one of those people. How bad was she? Read on — and, while you’re at it, call your mama!

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Manila Luzon

In terms of calling a person a male or a female when they’re in drag or just in general it’s become something of a sensitive issue these days, but when it comes Manila Luzon, who is a noted drag queen, it’s believed to be okay to say ‘him’ though for the purposes of this article I’ll stick to ‘she’ and ‘her’ since it seems fair. But getting past that, Manila has been a prominent figure when it comes to drag queens and the popularity they’ve seen throughout the years.

‘True Detective’ Director on What That Season-Spanning Tie-In Means for the Season 3 Finale

‘True Detective’ Director on What That Season-Spanning Tie-In Means for the Season 3 Finale
[Editor’s Note: The following article contains spoilers for “True Detective” Season 3, Episode 7, “The Final Country.”]

Daniel Sackheim joined the third season of “True Detective” pretty late — “I did not have a lot [of time],” he told IndieWire — but he knew about the case’s ties to Season 1 from the get-go.

“Nic [Pizzolatto] actually had all of these seven scripts written when I came onto the show,” Sackheim said. “It was always in the cards, so to speak.”

Episode 7, “The Final Country,” unveiled a secret connection between the Purcell case in Season 3 and the case investigated by Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) in Season 1. While Wayne (Mahershala Ali) is being interviewed by Elisa (Sarah Gadon), the docuseries reporter tells him about a theory that blames a pedophile ring for the death of William Purcell and kidnapping of Julie — the same pedophile ring associated with a serial killer felled by Cohle and Hart three years earlier.

‘True Detective’ Review: Episode 7 Comes Full Circle with a Stunning, Franchise-Shaking Twist

‘True Detective’ Review: Episode 7 Comes Full Circle with a Stunning, Franchise-Shaking Twist
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “True Detective” Season 3, Episode 7, “The Final Country.”]

Let’s get one thing straight: The revelation that the Purcell case in Season 3 is likely connected to the Fontenot case in Season 1 is the least important piece of the evidence presented in Episode 7. It doesn’t really matter to Wayne (Mahershala Ali) if the pedophile ring that bribed Lucy Purcell (Mamie Gummer) into giving her kids to the Hoyt foundation is part of the larger criminal ring that includes the Tuttle church — once investigated by the original true detectives, Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson). Wayne still needs to chase down his own leads and recapture his lost memories to solve his own case; tying it to another case isn’t all that important to his ultimate goal: hold the guilty men accountable.

But it’s a huge factor for “True Detective” overall. For one, it justifies why so
