NBC Pushes ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ Live Musical to 2018
The tuner had been set to air as NBC’s holiday musical event this year. The decision to push it a year was driven by Lopez’s overflowing schedule, which includes two series for NBC, “World of Dance” and the drama “Shades of Blue.”
The postponement of “Birdie” means NBC will not stage a musical event this holiday season. Earlier this month, NBC unveiled plans for a “Jesus Christ Superstar Live” event to air on Easter Sunday next year. That project will be shepherded by Craig Zedon and Neil Meron, the pair behind all of NBC’s live musical events to date. Given the high cost of the one-night-only live events, it was unlikely that NBC could field “Superstar” just a few months after staging “Birdie,” had the show stayed on its original date, and »

Ratings: ‘Dirty Dancing’ Remake Draws 6.6 Million Viewers for ABC
The “Dirty Dancing” remake delivered ABC’s most-watched Wednesday in nearly 7 months, but that doesn’t mean the Disney-owned broadcaster topped primetime.
Neither did the network airing “Empire’s” season finale, though: Fox finished second in the key 18-49 demographic, but was fourth among total viewers.
That leaves CBS and NBC, and last night belong to the “Survivor” net.
CBS was first in ratings with a 1.7 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 7.8 million, »

Fox Heats Up Summer With ‘Love Connection’ Revival for Modern Daters With Host Andy Cohen
It’s before noon on a weekday in late March, and Andy Cohen walks out onto a massive set with possibly the most dramatic entrance ever. “Here’s your host, Andy Cohen!” the voiceover shouts, as the TV personality is unveiled from giant bridge that lowers as he graces the lit-up stage.
Though the environment is familiar to Cohen with a live audience and a cushy couch for conversation with guests, this is not “Watch What Happens Live.” Rather, the Bravo personality is taping an episode of “Love Connection,” the revival of the dating game show, which premieres Thursday night on Fox.
“Love Connection” shot over a period of about one week, bringing the New York-based Cohen to Los Angeles to do what he does best: prod into people’s personal lives.
Within minutes of introducing the second contestant — whom Cohen dubbed “buff Jesus,” thanks to his large stature and long mane of silky hair — the host »

The Top Five TV Vampires Right Now
The basic concept of the vampire has been a popular part of the human imagination since ancient times. After all, we have a natural aversion to corpses, so it should come as no surprise to learn that the unnatural notion of corpses possessing a semblance of life has long been a nightmare for people from all around the world. Combined with another primordial fear in the form of being predated upon, the result is a classic monster that will be with us for the foreseeable future. However, it is interesting to note that vampires have undergone enormous transformations in recent

Why The 100 Could Become a Successful Feature Film
There are quite a few TV shows that people seem to think would be worthy of the big screen. The factors that go into such a transition however are not always as smooth as one might think. Apart from production costs and the effort made to preserve the integrity of the show, it has be kept in mind that any series that runs longer than one season runs into the same issue that comic books-inspired movies do: there’s simply too much to film. A few good examples would be the film adaptation of the X-Men, the Lord of the Rings

The Top Five Characters from All the Alien Films
With the emergence of the new film “Alien: Covenant” it’s very likely that the new characters being introduced are going to be held up for comparison with those that pioneered the franchise. It goes without saying that some characters simply can’t be topped, while others might have been awaiting such a day when their fame within the hit science fiction films were finally put to rest. It’s fair to state that the new characters haven’t yet earned a place on this list, but there’s no doubt that should they become a hit and resonate on the same level that they

Movie Reboot Ideas That Could Work: “Willow”
One of my favorite moves from my 80s childhood was definitely Willow. It was one of the first movies I had ever seen of its kind and to this day remains a classic. Don’t forget this is a Lucasfilm movie folks. But what I loved about it is not only the time period but the comedic brilliance of Val Kilmer and Warwick Davis in this movie. Remember that this movie was made in 1988, well before all the movies you see representing the same time period. I’m talking about the rise of movies and TV shows depicting barbaric times with

Behind the Scenes Look at the Importance of Sound in Movies
This is a great quote that many film school students already know but in case you’ve never read it, does a great job encapsulating the importance of sound: “Great sound can always bump up the quality of an ‘iffy’ image, Great images can Never fix terrible sound design.” This is completely true. I’ve gone on record numerous times on this site about the importance of sound and how a great soundtrack or score can make a movie 100 times better than it might actually be. Often times music can improve a movie but if the sound is off or the

Trailer for Jason Bateman Netflix Series Ozark Looks Insane
When you think of Jason Bateman the first thing that generally comes to mind is Arrested Development. I always think of The Hogan Family and Teen Wolf Too but that’s just me I suppose. The point is that 90% of the time Bateman is usually in some kind of role where he plays an intelligent middle aged guy who knows he’s smarter than most people, has a very smug and sarcastic way about him, and he makes us laugh. So when people first heard of the Netflix show Ozark that he’s starring in I think many just assumed this was
