This Is Us” and “NCIS” split primetime as Tuesday’s top shows, though both were down in both ratings and viewers versus the prior week’s episodes.

Yes, a national holiday is right around the corner and everyone was busy baking pies.

The Ink Factory Rebooting Roald Dahl's
Exclusive: The Ink Factory has successfully mined the library of John le Carré with "The Night Manager" and "The Little Drummer Girl" and it seems that the company is now looking do the same with acclaimed British author Roald Dahl.

"Salvation": Cancelled by CBS; No Season Three

Nobody's safe. CBS has cancelled its "Salvation" TV show after two seasons. During the second season, which finished its run on September 17, 2018, the science fiction thriller's ratings dropped significantly, so the cancellation has been expected.

A CBS suspense drama, 'Salvation" stars Santiago Cabrera, Jennifer Finnigan, Charlie Rowe, Jacqueline Byers, Melia Kreiling, Ashley Thomas, and Ian Anthony Dale. The story centers MIT graduate student Liam Cole (Rowe) and tech genius Darius Tanz (Cabrera), who discover that in six months, a huge asteroid will crash into the Earth. In season two, the truth is out. Now that it is no longer a secret, the impeding threat will elicit both the best and worst from humanity.

The Haunting of Hill House Creator on Why [Spoiler] Won't Have Any Part in a Potential Season 2
We hope you were satisfied with the Crain family’s happy-ish ending, Haunting of Hill House fans, because series creator Mike Flanagan says that’s the last we’re going to see of Olivia, Hugh and their brood.

When TVLine recently interviewed the show’s executive producer/writer/director, we asked whether any of the Crains might show up in future episodes. (To be clear, Netflix has not yet ordered a second season of the spooky — and wildly popular — drama based on Shirley Jackson’s horror novel of the same name, and Flanagan says any conversations about renewal likely will

‘Black Mirror’ Creator on Casting Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright Before Stardom

‘Black Mirror’ Creator on Casting Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright Before Stardom
Daniel Kaluuya and Letitia Wright are rising stars in Hollywood following the critical and financial successes of “Get Out” and “Black Panther,” and the two actors have something in common in that they both attracted buzz early in their careers for appearing on “Black Mirror.” The science-fiction anthology series, created by Charlie Brooker, cast Kaluuya in the second episode of its first season, “15 Million Merits.” Brooker recently told Entertainment Weekly Kaluuya’s audition made it clear the show had to bring him on board.

“When it comes to Daniel, when we saw his audition it was a bit of a no-brainer,” Brooker said. “It’s a very tricky part because for the first 15-20 minutes he hardly says anything. He’s sort of depressed. When he comes to that big speech at the end where he has this huge explosion and rails against everything in that world, he was so incredible in that scene,

‘Queen America’ Is a Run-of-the-Mill TV Show With a Peculiar Facebook Release

‘Queen America’ Is a Run-of-the-Mill TV Show With a Peculiar Facebook Release
Here’s a quick question that should serve as a surreal gut-check for modern entertainment: How many episodes of “Queen America,” the latest serialized offering for Facebook’s 2 billion-plus users, are available now?

Figure it out? Did you have to quickly Google “Queen America Facebook” or scan Catherine Zeta-JonesIMDb page first? Odds are high outside research was required, given that three episodes of “Queen America” quietly dropped Monday on Facebook Watch, marking the latest attempt by the streaming giant to stand out in the market for streaming options.

Created by Meaghan Oppenheimer (co-writer on the under-appreciated 2015 Zac Efron DJ picture “We Are Your Friends”), “Queen America” is one of those half-hour shows billed as a “black comedy” but that’s really just a drama with a few caustic jokes. In the pilot, Zeta-Jones’ popular beauty pageant coach tears up an Australian contest judge, dropping belittling joke after belittling joke

The Best Uses of Travis Tritt Songs in Movies

It seems a lot of country singers were turned on to music at a young age and through their church in some cases. Travis Tritt is no different since he was taught from a young age how to play and encouraged to do so throughout his life. You could say that he kind of had a typical upbringing when it came to his parents urging him to do what he felt was necessary and become a big country star. You could say that, but you’d be wrong. His mother actually felt that he should be writing and singing Christian songs

Michelle Wolf Eviscerates Trump Over Khashoggi Killing

Michelle Wolf Eviscerates Trump Over Khashoggi Killing
When Donald Trump comes for Michelle Wolf, Michelle Wolf comes for Donald Trump. The president reacted on social media to the news that the upcoming White House Correspondents’ Dinner won’t feature a comedian by blasting Wolf, who hosted earlier this year. Pulitzer-winning biographer Ron Chernow is hosting next year.

“So-called comedian Michelle Wolf bombed so badly last year at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner that this year, for the first time in decades, they will have an author instead of a comedian,” Trump wrote to his nearly 56 million Twitter followers. “Good first step in comeback of a dying evening and tradition! Maybe I will go?”

Wolf got wind of Trump’s tweet and decided to respond with a ruthless comeback: “I bet you’d be on my side if I had killed a journalist.”

General Hospital fans are all kinds of excited about what is happening right now, but we need to discuss a few things first. First and foremost, Laura is a mess, but she sure is handling it all well. She’s been left behind by the man she has loved for a while now, and she’s not sure what is going on.

Millennium Road: Looking Back on ‘The Girl Who Played with Fire’

Sequels always face an uphill battle with the public, and for good reason. When they follow a perfectly good standalone story, it begs the question of what need there even is for a continuation of that story and those characters. Oftentimes the serendipitous, lightning-in-a-bottle effect that informed the making of the initial story has moved on by the time that the original creative team (if you’re so lucky as to have them returning) sits down to make the nascent franchise’s second installment. Why not just leave well enough alone? The novel The Girl Who Played with Fire easily rebuffs all
