While Netflix doesn't release viewership data, this is one clear indicator that The Haunting of Hill House was a massive hit for the streamer.

Haunting creator Mike Flanagan and his longtime Intrepid Pictures partner Trevor Macy have signed a big overall deal with Netflix that includes a second season of the anthology. Sources say the pact is for four or five years and worth in the low eight-figure range. Given that Hill House was the duo's first series, that sum is considered a sizable investment from the streamer that changed the overall deals space after handing out nine-figure deals to ...

‘The Walking Dead’ Drops to All-Time Low in Ratings and Viewers
The Walking Dead” definitely isn’t dead, but it is at an all-time low.

Sunday’s episode, titled “Omega,” averaged a 1.7 rating in the key 18-49 demographic, down 15 percent from the prior week’s midseason premiere and slightly below its previous all-time demo low of 1.8 last fall.

This week also marked the show’s worst-ever performance in total viewers with 4.54 million people tuned in for Sunday’s episode. That’s down 12 percent from last week and less than the previous low of 4.71 million for the show’s second episode in 2010.

The episode aired against the NBC All-Star Game on TNT and TBS, likely accounting for the week-over-week declines.

The aging series has seen steep ratings declines across the past few years, with viewership numbers for Season 9 coming in well below the previous season. And moving forward, the

Abbi took a nasty spill this week on Broad City… but she ended up falling in more ways than one.

After an embarrassing nosedive at a fancy art exhibition left her bloodied, Abbi headed to the ER and struck up a flirty banter with Lesley, a doctor played by Veep veteran Clea DuVall. Even though Abbi’s never dated a woman before, their quick chemistry led her to impulsively ask for Lesley’s phone number — and to contemplate exploring a new side of her sexuality. (Not with Ilana,

Leaders of the Writers Guild of America have sent Hollywood talent agencies a proposed “Code of Conduct” with tough new restrictions on how they operate as agents for writer clients.

The WGA made the disclosure Thursday night in an email to its 12,000 members, a day after announcing that it will hold a March 25 vote on the new rules — which would effectively end all packaging deals, in which agencies receive both upfront and backend fees, and bar agencies from any financial interest in any entity or individual “engaged in the production or distribution of motion pictures.”

‘Star Trek Discovery’: Doug Jones Says All That Makeup Is the Easy Part
[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 2 Episode 6, “The Sounds of Thunder.”]

Doug Jones doesn’t like to know what’s coming next for his characters. “I’m a one-week-at-a-time guy. If I know too much ahead… I don’t want that to inform how I play the scene today,” he said.

But after the dramatic events of “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 2 Episode 4, “An Obol for Charon,” Jones suspected that the writers would loop back around to Saru, who went through a near-death experience that had social media on red alert.

“We really had people duped into thinking that was my swan song — that was going to be the end of Saru, which I thought was beautifully played by the writers and the editing,” Jones said. “The timing of that episode was just perfect, the way it played out. It really was a surprise when it’s like, ‘Nope. I don’t have to die after all.

New Order was actually known as Joy Division when they first got started, but when one of their members committed suicide before they were to go on tour they decided to change the name out of respect for their fallen companion. If you couldn’t tell by their sound they were one of the best known 80s bands around and their legacy is still pretty sound today since they keep being used for various movies and TV shows.
