Ratings: ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Premiere Plummets 19 Percent From Last Year

16 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

ABC may have won Nielsen’s Mirrorball Trophy on Monday, but its “Dancing With the Stars” premiere performed nowhere near as well as last year’s. Still, the Disney-owned broadcaster topped primetime outright, though the network was inflated in Detroit by “Monday Night Football.” The preliminary numbers for the net could slip a bit (further) when finale averages are available. For now at least, ABC was first in ratings with a 1.4 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 9 million, according to preliminary numbers. “DWTS” at 8 p.m. put up a 1.7/6 and 10.8 million. »

Awesome Legend of Zelda Fairy Fountain Violin Cover by Taylor Davis

2 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

So I’m not a big Legend of Zelda fan, but I am a music lover and I can say with all honesty that this piece is very impressive as well as beautiful. The violin that Taylor is holding is quite interesting as well since i have seen a few newer, less traditional versions of several instruments now and find them rather interesting as they are very different than the original instruments that have been used for so long. But listening to this piece is quite nice. It is not all action, nor is it all slow, measured reflection. It is

Christian Bale Goes 100% American Accent in Batman Interview with Charlie Rose in 2005

3 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It’s been well known for a while that Christian Bale can quell his English accent pretty easily. In this interview with Charlie Rose he sounds as though he was born and raised in America. It’s interesting though to learn that he was excited about doing Batman only after he finally read one of the darker-themed graphic novels. Batman has undergone a couple of different shifts throughout his long existence, but with Bale he definitely got a darker cast and a much more aggressive manner. One thing you might find interesting is that a lot of the main cast was in

Jimmy Kimmel Revives Healthcare Debate and Criticizes Louisiana Senator Cassidy

4 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel is mixing more and more serious stuff in with his comedy.

Kimmel took to the stage of his ABC late-night program and, for the second time in five months, urged viewers to push back against Republican lawmakers seeking to repeal the Affordable Care Act.  And, in a rare instance of a late-night host singling out a regional politician, he urged his viewers to reach out to one of the bill’s sponsors, Louisiana Republican Bill Cassidy, to make their feelings known about the new proposed legislation, known as the Graham-CassidybBill.

“Listen. Healthcare is complicated. It’s boring.  I don’t want to talk about it, and the details can be exceptionally confusing. And that’s what these guys are relying on,” Kimmel said in a monologue taped for Tuesday’s night’s broadcast of his program, “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” “They’re counting on you to be so overwhelmed by all the information – you »

Trump Says He Was ‘Saddened’ By ‘Worst Ever’ Emmy Ratings

4 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Washington — President Donald Trump has weighed in on the Emmys, which were heavy on humor and swipes at his expense.

“I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night – the worst ever. Smartest people of them all are the ‘Deplorables,'” he wrote on Twitter on Tuesday night, two days after Sunday’s Primetime Emmy Awards telecast. The President is in New York, staying at Trump Tower, during the United Nations General Assembly.

I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night – the worst ever. Smartest people of them all are the "Deplorables."

The Emmys, broadcast by CBS, were about on par with last year’s ceremony in terms of total viewers. Sunday’s awards ceremony averaged 11.4 million viewers, compared to 2016’s 11.3 million, its lowest ever. The telecast also averaged a 2.5 rating in adults 18-49, dropping below last year’s »

‘American Horror Story’ Recap: Almost Everyone Turns on Ally in ‘Neighbors From Hell’

4 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read on unless you’ve seen Season 7, episode 3 of “American Horror Story,” titled “Neighbors From Hell,” which aired on Sept. 19.

The isolation of Ally (Sarah Paulson) is in full swing. After she shot and killed her former employee Pedro at the end of the last episode, her neighbors and fellow liberals have turned against her, and by the end of “Neighbors From Hell,” she even loses the support of her wife, Ivy (Alison Pill). She still has one person on her side, though: Kai (Evan Peters), and it’s hard not to think that this is all part of his plan as he begins to earn her trust.

But before all of that happens, we meet a couple who’s seeing Dr. Rudy Vincent (Cheyenne Jackson). The woman had a fear of coffins going back to a childhood trauma, but, thanks in part to Dr. Rudy, she »

Remember the home of the eccentric inventor from Ex Machina? It’s been converted into a hotel that you can stay at now, for a rather exorbitant price of course. Each room is its own construct built on stilts and constructed in such a way as to blend in with the surroundings rather than dominate them. Permission was given for this project after an agreement was reached that there would be no blasting or any degradation of the surrounding environment to build the rooms. There are also a few original buildings that exist such as the barn, the mill house, and

Mary Jane Paul, Queen of Self-Sabotage™, has struck again.

The fourth season finale of Being Mary Jane buried its titular news anchor under increasingly mounting pressure, as Justin and Kara’s ongoing Game of Thrones — or at least Game of Offices — came down to her tie-breaking vote.
