Watch ‘Jeopardy!’ Host Alex Trebek Get a Standing Ovation at the NHL Awards (Videos)
Alex Trebek brought the audience to their feet — and Jon Hamm almost to tears — when he took to the stage at the 2019 NHL Awards on Wednesday night.

The annual event honoring the league’s best regular-season performances was one of the “Jeopardy!” host and longtime hockey fan’s few public appearances since announcing his Stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis.

“Thank you Jon, thank you Las Vegas, and thanks to the hockey world for all your support. Growing up in Canada, you realize very early on that hockey is in your DNA,” the Ontario native said, as he recalled how his favorite player of all time, Gordie Howe, had once won the Hart Memorial Trophy.

Trebek, 78, went on to present this year’s trophy for the league Mvp to Tampa Bay Lightening right winger Nikita Kucherov.

WGA To Host Panel On Utilizing Social Media As A Resource For Writers As Ata Standoff Continues

The WGA told its members Tuesday that it will host a panel discussion this month on “Utilizing Social Media as a Resource for Writers.” It is set for June 26 at the WGA Theater in Los Angeles.

Showrunners have successfully harnessed the power of social media to connect with fans and promote their series for years. But social media took on a major new role in the wake of the guild ordering its members in April to fire their agents if they had not signed WGA’s new Agency Code Of Conduct. Writers have used social media platforms to connect, look for work and give recommendations.

“Social Media platforms like Twitter and Facebook have taken center stage as a way for us to connect with each other and share information and ideas,” the WGA West’s Member Organizing Department said today in a message to the guild’s members. “These tools

The Village, The Enemy Within Among Cancelations at NBC

It's a sad day to be a moderately rated NBC freshman series. 

The Peacock network has officially canceled The Village, The Enemy Within and Abby's. 

When The Village was announced to be picked up to series at the network a year ago, it was touted as the next This Is Us. 

However, the series failed to catch on in the ratings and was moved to the 8/7c slot for its final episodes following weak ratings. 

Related: Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, Chicago Pd Renwed at NBC

The Village Season 1 averaged 4.1 million total viewers and a 0.7 rating on Tuesdays, meaning that a renewal was unlikely. 

Still, the show boasted a robust cast that included the likes of Moran Atias, Lorraine Toussaint, and Michaela McManus

The Enemy Within was another midseason entry that failed to catch on. It stepped into the Mondays at 10/9c slot when Manifest Season 1 concluded.

TV Ratings: ABC’s ‘Live in Front of a Studio Audience’ Easily Tops Wednesday

  • Variety
The ABC special “Live in Front of a Studio Audience” handily walked away with Wednesday night in the overnight ratings.

“Live in Front of a Studio Audience” pulled in a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 10.4 million viewers. For comparison, its closest competition in the demo were the season finales of “Chicago Med” and “Chicago Fire,” which each drew a 1.1 rating. Its closest competition in total viewers was also “Med” and “Fire,” which each drew around 7.4 million viewers.

The special saw celebrities like Woody Harrelson, Anthony Anderson, Kerry Washington, and Marisa Tomei reenacting classic episodes of “All in the Family” and “The Jeffersons.”

In her review for Variety, Caroline Framke wrote, “[The] special was so overwhelmingly dedicated to the fun of the conceit and the enduring accuracy of the punchlines that any technical nitpicks I had quickly faded from memory. By the time Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson was shimmying across the ‘Jeffersons’ set belting ‘Movin’ On Up,

‘Survivor’ Finale Nabs Ratings Demo Win; ‘Chicago Fire’ Tops Total Viewers

  • Deadline
The season finale of CBS’ Survivor: Edge of Extinction came in tops in the demo on Wednesday night.

NBC’s Chicago Fire ranked No. 1 in total viewers, followed closely by Chicago Med.

In the demo, Survivor inched up a tenth relative to its spring wrapper’s franchise low last year. In total viewers, Wednesday’s wrap-up is 97,000 from last spring’s finale low. But Wednesday night’s finale ended about a minute before 10:30 Pm Et, and taking out that minute of Reunion ratings is likely to notch up Survivor’s stats.

In its 9 Pm slot premiere, Fox’s Paradise Hotel continued to lose customers. The series dropped to a lowest-yet 0.3 rating after opening with a 0.5 from 8-10 Pm last Thursday, then slipping to a 0.4 at Monday from 9-10 Pm. Hotel hung on to just 60% of its lead-in from

Terence Blanchard Jazzes Up Bmi Film/TV Awards With Icon Honor
Jazz artist and film composer Terence Blanchard was presented with the Bmi Icon award at Wednesday night’s Film, TV and Visual Media Awards of performing-rights society Broadcast Music Inc. in Beverly Hills.

Blanchard, composer for many of Spike Lee’s films, was honored for his “unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers,” said Bmi president-ceo Mike O’Neill. “His music makes powerful statements about American tragedies that must not be forgotten, while also encouraging all of us to heal.”

Said Blanchard, “We just want to express ourselves in an artistic way. We have a burning desire to say something that’s in us, and sometimes we don’t even know what it is that we’re trying to say. These projects give us room to do that.

“You are my heroes,” he told the black-tie crowd of film and TV composers. “Everything that I’ve written for the screen,

Here’s the Complete Fall 2019 TV Schedule for All 5 Broadcast Networks

Each of the five broadcast networks unveiled their 2019-20 schedules ahead of their upfront presentations to advertisers this week, complete with new series and returning favorites.

While Fox, CBS and The CW shook things up by switching around time slots or completely revamping a few nights for the coming fall, ABC and NBC (mostly) preached stability with their primetime blocks.

Staples like ABC’s Tgit lineup, CBS’ procedural-led Tuesdays, NBC’s “Chicago” Wednesdays, Fox’s animated Sundays (with the exception of one new series) and The CW’s pairing of “Supernatural” and “Legacies” on Thursdays are going untouched.

NBC Touts ‘The Good Place’ and Comedy As the Heart of Its 2019-2020 Strategy

  • Variety
NBC is unveiling a year-round schedule next season that keeps several of its signature series, including “Will & Grace,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and freshman drama hit “Manifest,” on the bench until midseason.

The plan is stability in the fall, as Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays remain unchanged, and Thursdays continue to front a four-comedy lineup.

Only one new drama, the Jimmy Smits legal entry “Bluff City Law,” and two new comedies (“Perfect Harmony” and “Sunnyside”) will launch in the fall, as NBC saves most of its new premieres for winter and spring.

In unveiling their new schedule to reporters during a Sunday morning conference call, NBC Entertainment co-chairmen George Cheeks and Paul Telegdy said they “came into this season from the vantage point of extreme stability, but without any complacency.”

The execs singled out comedy as a key part of NBC’s strategy — calling it the “heart of the NBC brand.

‘Blindspot’ Renewed for Fifth and Final Season at NBC

  • Variety
NBC has ordered a fifth and final season of “Blindspot.”

The series stars Jaimie Alexander as a woman who initially crawled out of a duffel bag in the middle of New York City, completely naked except for the tattoos that covered almost every inch of her body. The tattoos were codes, and she worked with the FBI to uncover secrets and attempt to prevent crimes. As the seasons have gone on, the web of conspiracy has gotten more complicated, both due to the truth about the group that used her as a human treasure map, as well as the ever-increasing personal connections the team made with her and each other.

In addition to Alexander, the “Blindspot” cast includes Sullivan Stapleton, Rob Brown, Audrey Esparza, Ashley Johnson and Ennis Esmer.
