Star Falls: Season One Ratings

Scripted, live-action comedies and dramas for kids and tweens draw a devoted following, and only a few networks know that demographic like Nickelodeon. Now they've introduced the Star Falls TV show, which seems to take some inspiration from classic TV series like Green Acres and The Brady Bunch with a dash from the Disney film, The Parent Trap. Does it have what it takes to establish itself as a Nielsen ratings winner? Will Star Falls be cancelled or renewed for season two on Nick? Stay tuned. A Nickelodeon family sitcom, Star Falls stars Siena Agudong, Kamaia Fairburn, Tomaso Sanelli, Jadiel Dowlin, Marcus Cornwall, Dion Johnstone, Elena V. Wolfe, Liz Johnston, and Shawn Lawrence. The story centers on Sophia Miller (Agudong), who convinces movie star Craig Brooks (Johnstone) to move himself and his family into her home, while he’s shooting a

Jimmy Fallon and ‘Tonight Show’ Team Just Wants to Have Fun

Jimmy Fallon and ‘Tonight Show’ Team Just Wants to Have Fun
In a self-moderated panel on Tuesday, Jimmy Fallon and a collection of his creative team sat down on the “Tonight Show” stage at 30 Rock to drive home their mission statement: to have fun and provide “an escape” for their audience during a particularly turbulent time.

“There’s a lot of sad news we could talk about,” Fallon acknowledged. But what he hopes “The Tonight Show” can do is “help people get away from it.”

The Fyc Writers Guild panel also included director Dave Diomedi, Digital Media Director Julie Harrison-Harney, writer Arthur Meyer, head writer Amy Ozols, and producers Mike Dicenzo,

Jodie Foster movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Accused,’ ‘The Silence of the Lambs’

Jodie Foster movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Accused,’ ‘The Silence of the Lambs’
Jodie Foster has been a working actress for over half a century. That fact is a bit surprising since she is only 55 years old. Foster started acting when she was only three and was cast in a famous Coppertone sun tan lotion commercial. The appearance led to numerous other commercials and guest appearances on practically all the popular TV shows of that era such as “Bonanza”, “The Courtship of Eddie’s Father”, and “Gunsmoke”. She would also take over Tatum O’Neal’s Oscar winning role in “Paper Moon” when that show was made into a television series. While she worked steadily none of her television series were particularly successful which probably helped her avoid the typecasting that kids from “The Brady Bunch” and other shows faced.

She only began to earn name recognition in her early teen years when she starred in a number of successful films, some directed by Martin Scorsese.

How ‘The Fosters’ Will Say Goodbye and Set Up Its Spinoff

How ‘The Fosters’ Will Say Goodbye and Set Up Its Spinoff
Freeform is sending “The Fosters” off in style — the series is wrapping its run with a three-night “special event,” centered on Brandon’s (David Lambert) destination wedding. But those three hours, which start airing on June 4, will also serve to launch the upcoming spinoff.

“These three had to kind of have a standalone feel to them,” executive producer and showrunner Joanna Johnson tells Variety. “That’s why the event of a wedding really helped — to give us a real beginning, middle, and an end — rather than just three meandering or serialized episodes. We felt strongly that these three had to

Watch the Avengers: Infinity War Cast Parody The Brady Bunch

The cast of Avengers: Infinity War has assembled – not to take on the Mad Titan Thanos, but to parody The Brady Bunch. So, if excitement for the latest Marvel Studios production isn’t already massive enough, a video of the cast singing to the tune of a ’60s-era sitcom might be the icing on the cake.

Barry Williams Celebrates Life on 'The Brady Bunch' and Beyond (Exclusive)

A key element of The Brady Bunch was the little life lessons and morals that the show would offer up in pretty much every episode. Whether you viewed them as corny or enlightening, they made an impact. And it was certainly one of the big appeals to not only the audience, but the young cast who brought the bunch to life. For actor Barry Williams, who played oldest boy Greg, it was the way the show ended for real (rather than reel) that, ironically, served as perhaps the greatest lesson of all. The Brady Bunch, which brought together a lovely lady with three very lovely girls and a man with three boys of his own, made its debut in 1969 and ran for five seasons, concluding in 1974. At the end of that fifth season, there was every expectation the cast and crew would be back for a sixth. But just three

Why Adam West Was the One and Only Batman

Why Adam West Was the One and Only Batman
What's this? Could this be the end for Batman? Rest in peace, Adam West, the one and only Caped Crusader who truly defined the role. There have been so many incarnations of Batman over the years – on the page and on the screen – but Adam West was the one flesh-and-blood actor who ever did justice to the cape, on the Sixties TV series Batman.

West, who died of leukemia Friday at the age of 88, brought deadpan humor and old-school gallantry to the role, week after week; same Bat Time, same Bat Channel.
