‘Saturday Night Live’ Ratings Rise To Tie A Season High With Host Matt Damon
Saturday Night Live‘s last original telecast of 2018, with host Matt Damon, musical guests Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus, and appearances by Robert de Niro, Ben Stiller and Alec Baldwin, averaged a 4.8 Live+same day household rating in the metered markets and a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating in the markets with local people meters.

That was up sharply from last week’s show, hosted by Jason Momoa with musical guest Mumford & Sons to tie the the Sept. 29 SNL season premiere as the highest mark of the season in households and log the second highest result in 18-49 behind the opener.

The Christmas-themed episode followed a headline-making story involving the wellbeing og cast member Pete Davidson who made a brief appearance.

Saturday Night Live was the #1 telecast of the night on the Big 4 networks in both metered-market households and 18-49 in the local people meters,

‘Daredevil’ Actress Says Netflix Was Responsible for Cancellation, Not Marvel

‘Daredevil’ Actress Says Netflix Was Responsible for Cancellation, Not Marvel
Viewers were surprised by the cancellation of “Daredevil” last month; so was the cast. Charlie Cox called it “painful,” and now his castmate Amy Rutberg has said that even “people high up at Marvel” were shocked by the move — and that Netflix was solely responsible for the decision.

“My contacts at Marvel were very surprised. Any of the rumors that it was a Marvel decision are wrong, I think it was purely a Netflix decision. That comes from personal conversations with people high up at Marvel. They were surprised,” said Rutberg in an Inverse interview.

“We had heard rumors we would start production as early as February 2019,” she said. “It’s a little unusual to be that far ahead in the planning and cancel the show, which makes me think Netflix was laboring over whether or not to cancel it. My guess was it was not an easy decision.”

Pete Davidson Shows Christmas Spirit In Brief ‘SNL’ Appearance After Disturbing Post
Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson raised a lot of concern on Saturday with an unsettling Instagram post that reportedly triggered a welfare check by NYPD. Hours later, he made a brief appearance on SNL, showing everyone that he was alive and well, and even donned a Christmas-colored outfit to fit in with the show’s Christmas theme and the song that followed him.

Davidson introduced musical guest Miley Cyrus’ performance of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s classic (Happy Xmas) War Is Over, which featured Lennon and Ono’s son, Sean Ono Lennon, as well as Mark Ronson.

This was Davidson’s only live SNL appearance tonight (he was also featured in a pre-recorded skit about new Oscar host auditions). He was not visible during the curtain call at the end of the show when the entire cast gathers on stage.

The Five Best Jesse Eisenberg Movies of His Career

If you’re wondering if Jesse Eisenberg is just a brilliant method actor or is really acting like himself in some of his movies then you should know that it’s the former more than the latter. He has suffered from anxiety in the past and is kind of controlling in what he does since he does like to have a certain level of authority over the aspects of his life that he considers his own. So when you see him acting out a character on screen it’s safe to assume that part of who he really is has come through and

2018 in Review: 12 Dumb Things TV Did

Attention all TV Powers That Be: If you’re looking to make a resolution in 2019, we’ve got a suggestion: Make better choices.

Every year, TVLine surveys the year in television and picks out the real turkeys, aka the decisions that made us shake our heads in wonder and cry, “Who, exactly, thought this would be a good idea?!” And 2018 is no different, thanks to the tone-deaf responses (we feel you, Apu) and spiked episodes (our kingdom for that pulled black-ish installment!) that came up over the past 12 months.

The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Hope And Steffy Continue to Disagree

The Bold and the Beautiful did not disappoint last week, but we need to quickly recap that before you get into a new week with new drama. For one, we all got to see the things that happened with everyone around here unfold. Reese kissed Taylor after he told his daughter that he might have feelings for her and after Taylor unloaded some of her worries and personal feelings on him. She liked it. He liked it.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Shoto Todoroki

Shoto Todoroki is one of the most notable secondary characters in My Hero Academia. Since My Hero Academia is centered on a school where the students are preparing to become full-time superheroes, it should come as no surprise to learn that Shoto is one of them. Here are 10 things that you may or may not have known about Shoto Todoroki: 1. His Name Is Meaningful Shoto contains the kanji for both “burning” and “freezing.” This references his superpowers, presumably both in and out of setting.

Young and the Restless fans are all waiting to see what happens this week. Will Victor come back and face the problem that everyone thinks he is the one who took down Jt and ended his life? He did not, and we all know that. In fact, a few other people know that, too, but they refuse to have anything to do with that at the moment.

Miss Universe 2018: The Winner Is...

Miss Universe 2018: The Winner Is...
The 67th Miss Universe competition, which is basically the Avengers: Infinity War of the pageant world, was held in Bangkok on Sunday. And just like the Avengers, not everyone was feeling so good by the end of Fox’s three-hour broadcast.

Once again hosted by Steve Harvey — who famously crowned the wrong Miss Universe back in 2015, a mistake he managed to avoid repeating — this year’s pageant represented a record-breaking 94 different countries and territories. In fact, the hosts’s bedazzled jacket was designed with that fact in mind, featuring one jewel for every participant.

The Best Uses of Janet Jackson Songs in Movies or TV

While you could rightfully claim that her fame was close but not quite on the same level as her brother Michael’s, Janet Jackson has still been one of the most iconic stars to ever hit the stage in her time. Even to this day when new artists are coming out in droves and are starting to make a huge push to remember the past but move on from it Janet’s legacy is holding strong since she was one of those that managed to empower a lot of younger artists that have come up through the ranks in the past few

The Five Best Michael Jai White Movies of His Career

It’s hard to imagine that Michael Jai White is in his 50s now since he looks pretty good and is still in fighting shape. He’s definitely one of those that’s the real deal or as close to it as can possibly be. He’s been into martial arts since he was 7 years of age, and at this point he looks just as skilled as he’s ever been. Michael has been in films with some of the toughest guys in the industry and has been lauded by many as one of the better martial artists around. The only failing seems to

‘Outlander’ Recap: Brianna Goes ‘Down the Rabbit Hole’ — and Another Familiar Face Returns

‘Outlander’ Recap: Brianna Goes ‘Down the Rabbit Hole’ — and Another Familiar Face Returns
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “Down the Rabbit Hole,” the seventh episode of “Outlander” Season 4.

“Down the Rabbit Hole” is likely to be a divisive episode, especially for those viewers who have read the books. While the return of Frank was a lovely surprise — Tobias Menzies is a talented actor and it was nice to see him get scenes with Sophie Skelton — the show also took some major liberties with Brianna’s (Skelton) journey back in time that changed the tone of her entire time in Scotland.

Need to catch up? Check out the previous Outlander recap here.

Both Brianna and Roger make the leap through time in this week’s Outlander, thank goodness. It’s been fun watching Jamie and Claire channel Bob Vila and all, but I’m ready for the Frasers and Rog all to be in one place (and century) so that the joyful reunions, tearful misunderstandings and 18th-century game of telephone* can get underway!

On a related note, this week’s episode brings back two characters we haven’t seen in a while: Frank and Laoghaire. For the first time, particularly in Laoghaire’s case,

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Kathy Griffin

One thing you can’t call Kathy Griffin is shy. She’s been around for longer than many might realize and in that time she’s been just who she wants to be which in some cases is quite impressive. But upon seeing the positive aspect you also have to realize there’s something that a lot of people won’t like since she’s not the kind of person that’s going to cater to everyone. She’s been known to go off on a tangent about things or people that rub her the wrong way and won’t be apologetic about what she says in the least

The Five Best Mandy Moore Movie of Her Career

Imagine if Mandy Moore had believed her parents when they said that her singing was ‘just as phase’ and let it drop as she got older. Things would have turned out a lot differently for her since singing is what really brought her into show business and then made her the famous individual she now is. In fact had she believed that it was just a phase she would have missed out on making one of the most iconic figures that Disney has ever seen and we might have received a very different character than we have now.

In show business or anything associated with it in any way or form it’s all but guaranteed that if a person is ambitious enough and ready to undergo a lot of grueling work that they’ll get at least 15 minutes of fame.

Timeless Team Teases Series' Ending, Talks Possibility of More Episodes

Timeless has already defied death twice, so one can’t help but wonder if the show will do the impossible (for the third time!) and find new life after the two-hour series finale (airing Dec. 20 at 8/7c on NBC).

Speaking about the possibility of more TV movies or a reunion down the road, showrunner Arika Lisanne Mittman — who penned the drama’s very final hour — says, “If that were to happen, that’d be awesome. With this show, I will never say anything’s impossible. I mean, we were the show that was cancelled and brought back three days later.

The Best Uses of Billy Currington Songs in Movies or TV

Billy Currington strikes me as one of those individuals that loves the music but doesn’t let himself get so fully involved in the business, thereby kind of keeping him from the kind of fame and fortune that others have struck. That could be erroneous however since he’s been around for a while and has been trying to stay relevant and do what he can to enjoy what he does and still make a living with it. He’s won an award in his time and been nominated for several, but it would almost seem as though he came to the party

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Rush Limbaugh

In the long history the world there are many polarizing characters that are known to draw a line in the metaphorical sand for people to cross. Rush Limbaugh is one of those that wouldn’t even draw the line, he’d likely tell those that didn’t want to see his point of view to go soak their heads in the ocean while he and his followers stayed on dry land. That might seem unkind, but the man isn’t exactly apologetic in the way he goes after certain individuals and even groups of people when it comes to trying to have his say.
