In what is the calm before the storm of fall premieres that will hit the small screen next week, Thursday saw a demo win for Fox as Gotham (1.0/4) returned and The Orville (1.1/4) debuted in its regular slot.

Declining 17% among adults 18-49 from the fast affiliates of last year's debut, Gotham was… »
David Lyle, Veteran Executive and Reality TV Champion, Dies at 67
David Lyle, a TV veteran who championed unscripted TV and headed National Geographic Channels and Fox Reality Channel, died Thursday at his home in Los Angeles after a long battle with cancer. He was 67.
After working in TV in Australia and in London, Lyle came to Los Angeles in 2001 as head of FremantleMedia North America where he helped launch “American Idol” on Fox. He most recently served as president of Pact US, an advocacy org for unscripted TV producers.
Earlier this year, Lyle helped steer the merger of Pact US with the rival Nonfiction Producers Association, creating Npact. The organization reps most of the largest unscripted TV production companies.
“David Lyle was one of the few television executives who thrived on both a creative and business level,” said Howard T. Owens, co-CEO of Propagate Content, who worked with Lyle at Nat Geo. “He was one of the kindest, most fun, and »

Marvel’s ‘The Punisher’ Release Date May Finally Be Revealed
The trailers and ads for The Punisher have been chock full of violence, gore, and intrigue, but they’re all missing one thing: the release date. Marvel and Netflix have been frustratingly withholding of the newest street-hero series’ premiere date, following Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders. But it may be thanks to an […]

USA and Oxygen Acquire Rerun Rights to ‘Chicago P.D.’
“Chicago P.D.” is one of three Chicago-based procedurals that have become pillars of NBC’s primetime lineup. “Chicago Fire” launched the franchise in 2012, followed by “Chicago P.D.” in 2014 and “Chicago Med” in 2015. Last season, NBC fielded a fourth installment, the legal-themed “Chicago Justice,” but the show was not renewed for a second year.
The “Chicago” shows have been solid performers for NBC but according to industry sources they have been a tough sell in domestic syndication. “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.” have been on the market for some time. Industry sources said “P.D.” in the combined deal with NBCUniversal siblings USA and Oxygen fetched about $500,000 an episode. That »

Check Out This “1987” Thor 3: Ragnorok Trailer
When you check out Thor: Ragnarok as a 1980’s trailer you have to laugh as you wonder if all 80’s trailers looked quite that cheesy. The backgrounds, the low budget lighting effects, and the obvious use of props seems to indicate that the 80’s were, in terms of fantasy films, a bit behind the times. But then again it was the 80’s. It is the decade that brought He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and Ghostbusters. The effects that we saw back in that time were state of the art in some cases and purposely cheesy just to drive

Sitting in a boardroom, she introduces herself as you might expect her to: “My hair is dark, so I look evil,” she says, “but I’m wearing white, which is ironic.” Bloom then reveals what she’s really up to this season: “I have a plan to destroy Josh Chen.” That’s what happens when you get jilted at the altar, I suppose.

Season 13 of The Voice Gets A Worship Leader & A Drag Queen – Yes!
The 2017-18 TV season kicks off Monday. For music fans that means one thing: season 13 of The Voice begins! What’s even better? This is a great panel of coaches who are focused on one thing – making their team members into the best they can be!

Aside from the fun of of Adam and Blake, I’m really looking forward to the sophomore turns of Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Hudson. As

‘Will & Grace’ Co-Creator on Trump: ‘I Would Rather Be a Son of a Bitch Than the Son of Someone Who Was Arrested at a Kkk Rally’
A new healthcare bill is set to be voted on in the Senate next week and all of Puerto Rico is without power in the wake of Hurricane Maria, so of course Donald Trump is focusing on what really matters: professional athletes whose opinions make him angry. He referred to Colin Kaepernick as a “son of a bitch” who should “get off the field right now” for kneeling during the national anthem as an act of protest, prompting a pointed response from “Will & Grace” co-creator David Kohan during a Tribeca TV panel yesterday.

Rick And Morty Season 3’s Best Scenes Recreated In Fallout 4
I think it would take a seriously dedicated fan of Fallout 4 and Rick and Morty to really break down all of the scenes that are represented in this clip. I know of at least one since I’ve had to write on it before. But I’ll say this as I’ve said it in the recent past, I still don’t know how Rick and Morty is so popular but I’ll just leave it that it is. The pickle Rick scene is pretty obvious since it’s been so pervasive for so long with the show. It still stands out as one of

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Will Phyllis Get Tired of Billy?
Young and the Restless fans know things are never going to work with Phyllis and Billy. They are a couple that works well together night now, but that will certainly end before much longer. One thing they don’t have going for them is they don’t share kids. He shares kids with Victoria, and that’s a situation he cannot change. They have the kind of bond that he and Phyllis will never share, and that makes us wonder how long they might really last. We give them a few more months, but that’s the best we can do. She can play

NFL to Air Ad Promoting Unity in Wake of Trump Attacks on Anthem Protests
The NFL plans to air an ad promoting unity following President Donald Trump’s campaign to “fire or suspend” National Anthem protestors.
The one-minute ad, originally produced for the Super Bowl earlier this year, will run during NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” telecast.
“We think this is the single best response to demonstrate what we are about,” an NFL spokesman told CNN, which first reported the news.
“Inside these lines, we don’t have to come from the same place to help each other reach the same destination,” Forest Whitaker intones in the ad. “Inside these lines, we may have our differences, but recognize there’s more that unites us.”
This comes as a reaction to a feud that ignited over the weekend between Trump and the NFL. On Friday, Trump told a rally in Alabama, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to »

The Pittsburgh Steelers will stay in the locker room during the playing of the national anthem today. The team’s decision is intended to show a united front. Other teams are expected to follow suit, though there’s some question about whether NFL rules call for teams to actually be on field during the anthem, or whether the league would enforce the rule. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin revealed the locker room plan to CBS sideline reporter Jamie Erdahl. Watch a clip… »

Björk’s Latest Music Video is Nothing Short of Mesmerizing
Mesmerizing is the right word without any doubt. Bjork is definitely unique when it comes to doing, well, anything. Her newest video, The Gate, is an exercise in odd that meets a whole lot of wonderful in terms of visuals. There’s really nothing in this video that’s boring and there is enough to look at that it keeps you wondering just what’s going to come next with each passing second. Bjork’s music is kind of an acquired taste since she really doesn’t fall within the realm of what a lot of people tend to think of as music, but it’s
