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 »

Hugh Jackman Discovers Mario Kart in Real Life and It’s Delightful
There’s no hard rule that says celebrities have to be charitable or generous with their time. We assume because they are loaded that they somehow “owe it to us.” But truth be told, celebrities are humans like anyone else. You’re going to get some bad apples in the bunch and there’s nothing we can do about it. However, when you get the good apples you tend to cling to them like dear life.

5 Must-See Movies Coming to Netflix in June 2017
5) Trolls – People always say that you can’t tell a book (or, in this case, a movie) by its cover. There’s good reason for that too. If I went purely off of how good Trolls looked, for instance, I would have missed out on one of the most surprising movies of last year. Despite being an inherently stupid idea based on a toy line that hasn’t been relevant in decades, Trolls is heartwarming family entertainment at its finest. It’s filled with well-chosen pop songs, absolutely owns its homemade, scrapbook aesthetic and has a far more interesting cast of characters

Sony’s Stand-Alone Spider-Man Cinematic Universe Gets a Little Bigger with ‘Silver and Black ’
So we really are going through with this then, are we? Spider-Man movies without Spider-Man. Spider-Man movies that have no connection whatsoever with the monstrously popular Marvel Cinematic Universe. Spider-Man movies starring the wall-crawler’s B and C-list supporting cast. That’s Sony’s plan, anyway. Having driven what’s arguably Marvel’s best known and most marketable property into the ground – twice – the film studio thought that maybe selling back the film rights to its rightful owner was the best thing for them to do. Although the exact details of their deal aren’t immediately clear, they’re worked out a way for them

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
