TV Ratings: "The Conners" Drops Double Digits in Post-Midterms Return

TV Ratings:
ABC’s “The Conners” just dropped by double-digit percentages in TV ratings from its last episode, which aired two weeks ago due to the midterm elections.

More specifically, the “Roseanne” spinoff slipped 17 percent among adults 18-49 from its Oct. 30 original, and 10 percent among overall audience members.

NBC won Tuesday in ratings thanks to its “Voice” results show and another strong performance by “This Is Us.” CBS was actually No. 1 in terms of total viewers, however.

NBC was first in ratings with a 1.6 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 7.8 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. landed a 1.6/7 and 8.8 million viewers. “This Is Us” at 9 scored a 2.0/8 and 8.5 million viewers. At 10, “New Amsterdam” had a 1.1/5 and 6.1 million viewers.

Migration Drama "1899" Is New Netflix Project From Creators of"‘Dark"

Migration Drama
The creators of supernatural series “Dark,” which helped put German drama on the international TV map, have set their next Netflix project, “1899,” a drama that follows European migrants on a fright-filled journey to the U.S.

Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar inked an overall deal with Netflix in June – the first of its kind for the streamer in Europe – following the success of “Dark.” “1899” is the first fruit of that agreement. The show revolves around a migrant steamship heading from London to New York. When the passengers discover another migrant boat adrift, their journey takes an unexpected twist.

“What they find on board will turn their passage to the promised land into a horrifying nightmare,” Netflix said in a statement.

‘Escape at Dannemora’: Why Ben Stiller Decided to Make the Prison Drama Series

‘Escape at Dannemora’: Why Ben Stiller Decided to Make the Prison Drama Series
Ben Stiller and Patricia Arquette spent enough time at prisons while filming Showtime’s upcoming limited series “Escape at Dannemora” to know at least two things.

The first seems obvious enough: prison is terrifying. The second was that these institutions are in dire need of some restructuring.

“It’s a really broken system, and everyone knows it,” Stiller told Variety at the premiere of “Escape at Dannemora” at Lincoln Center in New York City. “There are so many factors. It’s a very complicated problem.”

Stiller directed and executive produced “Escape at Dannemora,” the stranger than fiction account of Richard

‘Twin Peaks’: For $2,000, You Can Own Laura Palmer’s Casket

‘Twin Peaks’: For $2,000, You Can Own Laura Palmer’s Casket
Given the sheer number of costume pieces, props, and other slices of production design that go into the average film/TV production, it’s no surprise that it takes decades for all that memorabilia to become available to the public.

One such opportunity is happening next month, when an upcoming Prop Store auction will see the release of a number of classic series’ set dressing to the highest bidders. Among the wide, insane variety of options are a few items from the original “Twin Peaks” run. The starting bid for Laura Palmer’s casket is $1,000 (the estimate is around double that), but other random items like the signage from the Great Northern Hotel runs a little cheaper.

To begin to summarize the sheer quantity of random items as part of this auction is an impossible task, but some of the items with the highest opening bids are pretty recognizable. An

Bizarre Genre Hybrid ‘Detective Pikachu’ Might Be the First Great Video Game Movie

Movies based on video games have always been a tough nut for Hollywood to crack. Given the fundamental differences between the two mediums, it only makes sense. Video games are interactive stories, while moviegoers are necessarily passive. Video games frequently stretch on for 10, 20, 30, 40 hours – some even clocking in at 100 or more in order to see and do everything – while a movie rarely has more than a couple of hours to get the same ideas across. Video games are functionally animated, whereas the movies based on them rarely ever are: forcing the infinite possibilities

John Turturro on ‘The Name of the Rose’ Series and Investigating Umberto Eco

John Turturro on ‘The Name of the Rose’ Series and Investigating Umberto Eco
John Turturro hadn’t read Umberto Eco’s thriller “The Name of the Rose” or seen the 1986 movie when he was approached in spring of last year about a new TV adaptation. After reading the novel, one of the best-selling of all time, Turturro agreed to sign on – if the producers agreed to honor the original, he says.

“I read the book and I loved it. I started writing to [director] Giacomo [Battiato] to say, ‘Why isn’t there more Eco, this is eight hours, you don’t have to reduce it,” Turturro says. “I said, ‘If you put more of Eco in,

Will Netflix Go the Way of FilmStruck?

If there’s one thing that has become painful clear in the last couple of weeks, its that film streaming is a precarious business to be in these days. When even FilmStruck, a beloved and widely-praised service bringing rare, old and foreign movies to more than a hundred thousand homes the world over, can’t make it, what can? And, more importantly, what happens to those service’s movies once the service itself goes away. Typically, there’s not too much question with that. If Hulu goes under, people will still be able to easily find ways of watching shows like Bob’s Burgers and

The Best Uses of Zac Brown Band Songs in Movies or TV

The Zac Brown Band seems to have had a pretty stable and ordinary rise as they were founded by Zac and were made into the group they are by means that were more or less ordinary in a lot of ways. But as they’ve been getting better and better throughout their career they’ve continued to rack up nominations and awards as people have taken note of them and heartily approved of their music in many ways. Being featured on soundtracks has seemed to be kind of a hit and miss thing since their music is great but the fact remains

Young and the Restless fans are going to be very surprised when things just don’t go well for Rey. He’s got a life of problems in front of him, and watching his wife show up in the picture was just as great as we thought it might be. They might not be a happily married couple by any means, but she doesn’t exactly strike us as the kind of woman who will sit back and allow her husband to make things happen with another woman. We don’t think she and Sharon will get on too well, but that’s just us.

CMAs: Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood Make Winning Comebacks While Kacey Musgraves Quietly Steals Show
If there’s one thing that’s usually certain about the Country Music Association Awards, it’s that whoever wins the top prize, Entertainer of the Year, will be someone who didn’t win another award all night. That was the case again this year, although uncertainty did figure in, in that it went in an upset to Keith Urban, who hadn’t picked off the competition since 2005. “I’m shocked beyond shocked,” Urban said, speaking for most prognosticators, too.

Maybe the only veteran as visibly surprised to be making a Cma Awards comeback was co-host Carrie Underwood, who won for best female vocalist,

American Horror Story: Apocalypse Finale Recap: Not Today, Satan!

Wednesday marked the end of the end of the world, as FX closed the book on an American Horror Story installment eight seasons in the making — but was Apocalypse‘s conclusion worth the wait? My guess is that you still need some time to digest what the actual fudge just went down, so let’s make sure we’re all on the same page.

The first part of the episode explained Cordelia’s master plan, most of which we knew, though it was helpful to have a few remaining blanks filled: Myrtle kicked things off by waltzing into Antichrist HQ

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “Apocalypse Then,” the finale episode of “American Horror Story: Apocalypse.”

Going into “Apocalypse Then,” it seemed nearly impossible “American Horror Story” could wrap things up in one final episode. But it managed to pull it off, though the finale moved at a breakneck speed in order to do so. And it even got another return to “Murder House” in before the hour-plus episode was up.
