Westboro Baptist Church Missed Leonard Nimoy’s Funeral Because They Couldn’t Find It
Westboro Baptist Church had every intention to picket “Star Trek” actor Leonard Nimoy‘s Los Angeles funeral on Sunday, but the congregation, known for spewing caustic and intolerant rhetoric at high-profile funerals, was unable to attend because the location of the services were kept private. “Leonard Nimoy‘s funeral is today, but nobody is sharing Where. So Westboro And @WilliamShatner can’t attend :(,” the church wrote in a Twitter message accompanying a Vine video of a man holding a neon “Love Thy Neighbor Equals Rebuke” sign.

The Overnighters | Review

Love Thy Neighbor: Moss Finds Faith In Oil Boomtown

In the small town of Williston, North Dakota, a modern day boomtown is growing exponentially as men down on their luck and desperately seeking work flock with hopes of being hired in the newly fracked oil fields that surround the town. This influx of migrant workers has brought an unforeseen strain on the community, as the large majority of them ride by bus or train into town with nothing more than a bag full of cloths and a heart full of hope, and hence, have no where to sleep. Those that do manage to drive themselves out in beat up minivans and lived in winnebagos have very few places to legally sleep in their vehicles. Enter Pastor Jay Reinke and his overnighters program that allows these world weary men to take refuge after dark in the Concordia Lutheran Church, much

Doc Jensen on 'The Strain' -- and when real life interrupts TV

Doc Jensen on 'The Strain' -- and when real life interrupts TV
Horror has come in a variety of flavors this summer: Gory. Existential. Sharknado. FX’s The Strain is geek Neapolitan—a combo of all three. It’s a high-concept monster mash—a vampire takeover thing restated as a zombie plague thing—that revels in body ick and clever ironies. This is a show that gets its shocks and jollies from having a goth rocker—a prick raconteur who’s only in it for the “p—y”—accidentally flush his balls down the toilet after his infected body abruptly decides to shed them, leaving him looking like Marilyn Manson on the cover of Mechanical Animals.

Ted Bergmann, Producer Who Brought Grammys to Television, Dies at 93

Ted Bergmann, the producer of early Grammy and National Football League telecasts, died Sunday following surgery in Santa Monica, Calif., according to his wife Beverly. He was 93.

Bergmann started his television career at NBC in 1947. He went on to work in advertising, where he matched companies such as Coca-Cola and Colgate with entertainment properties. The group behind the Grammy Awards sought Bergmann’s help in 1962 to bring the ceremony to TV. He then produced the music awards show for seven years.

Bergmann served as president of the DuMont Television Network and televised early NFL games and live boxing. Other TV credits include “The Arthur Godfrey Show,” ”Love Thy Neighbor” and “Three’s Company.”

Besides his wife, Bergmann is survived by six children, two stepsons, 14 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

NBA Finals Lift ABC to Weekly Victory; NBC’s ‘Voice’ and ‘Talent’ Are Top-Rated Series

NBA Finals Lift ABC to Weekly Victory; NBC’s ‘Voice’ and ‘Talent’ Are Top-Rated Series
ABC dominated last week’s primetime ratings race in key demos behind the NBA Finals while NBC was a solid runner-up thanks to reality hits “The Voice” and “America’s Got Talent.”

Actually, sports and reality dominated the demo rankings in general, with only one scripted original — ABC’s “Mistresses” — among the week’s 25 highest-rated ad-supported programs in young adults.

CBS, meanwhile, continues to take its lumps in the early part of TV’s summer season as it is especially hurt by the lower ratings for repeats that all nets are seeing. The Eye has finished fifth or lower in adults 18-49 for three straight weeks, and its decision to start summer perennial “Big Brother” earlier this year — it bows next week — is looking better by the minute.

In a week jam-packed with scripted originals on cable, ABC Family had good news as “The Fosters” rose in its second episode

USA’s ‘Royal Pains’ Returns With Series-Low Demo Score

USA’s ‘Royal Pains’ Returns With Series-Low Demo Score
USA drama “Royal Pains” looked sluggish in kicking off its fifth season Wednesday, slipping to the show’s lowest young-adult rating to date. Holding up better relative to last year was sked partner “Necessary Roughness,” which was beginning its third season.

According to Nielsen estimates, the comedic medical drama “Royal Pains” averaged a 0.71 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.68 million viewers overall in Wednesday’s 9 o’clock hour. This is a rather sharp decline in young adults from last year’s 0.97 and from the big 1.40 it did in opening its third season back in 2011.

In its time period, “Royal Pains” was beaten in both 18-49 and 25-54 by repeats of “The Big Bang Theory” on TBS and “Duck Dynasty” on A&E.

“Royal” did not hit a series low in total viewers, as it had a few episodes draw smaller overall crowds last season, including the show’s two-hour December episode

NBA Finals, NBC’s Reality Lead Week’s Primetime Ratings

NBA Finals, NBC’s Reality Lead Week’s Primetime Ratings
ABC slam-dunked the competition last week as the opening two games of the NBA Finals lifted the net to its third demo victory in the last four weeks.

The hoops action may have been down from last year, but the Alphabet ruled Thursday and Sunday with it.

Actually, sports and reality took the other nights too: TNT won Monday with an NBA conference semifinal game; NBC took Tuesday with “The Voice” and the return of “America’s Got Talent”; Fox led Wednesday with “MasterChef, while ABC won Friday behind “Shark Tank,” and NBC led Saturday with hockey.

The week featured the premieres of numerous scripted cable series, including ABC Family’s “The Fosters” and TNT’s “Graceland,” both of which did Ok. And among returning series, USA’s “Burn Notice” joined TNT’s “Falling Skies” and MTV’s “Teen Wolf” in posting good numbers.

Discovery Networks to Dabble in Scripted Programs

Discovery Networks to Dabble in Scripted Programs
A TV company best known for its reliance on so-called “non fiction” programming is playing with something a little off-kilter for its viewers: scripted fare.

Discovery Communications, the cable network that makes its bones showing science and nature programming as well as off-kilter reality shows, said it will air a scripted mini-series for the first time on its flagship Discovery Channel as well as a scripted drama – another first – on its Science Channel.

The bulk of the programming announced across six nets still has its roots in real life, and even the scripted fare is based on history or a non-fiction book. But the company’s decision to dabble in the scripted realm echoes maneuvers elsewhere. NBCUniversal’s Bravo is developing three scripted series based on novels centered on the wealthy and/or lovelorn, for example.

At Discovery Network, executives will unveil “Klondike,” based on Charlotte Gray’s book “Gold Diggers

Tyler Perry’s Madea and Oprah’s Ms. Sofia Are Hanging Out
When Oprah and Tyler Perry get together, they apparently like to chat as their old-lady alter egos: with Oprah as Sofia from The Color Purple and Tyler as Mabel "Madea" Simmons from the many, many Madea films. It doesn't seem likely that the tragic story of Sofia would overlap with Madea's antics, but Oprah tagged her Instagram photo with "#SophiaMeetsMadea," so who are we to judge? According to the Oprah blog (yes, that's what it's called), Oprah and Tyler are celebrating his shows Love Thy Neighbor and The Haves and Have Nots coming to the Own Network, and the pair decided to dress up to celebrate.
