Declining 17% among adults 18-49 from the fast affiliates of last year's debut, Gotham was… »
David Lyle, Veteran Executive and Reality TV Champion, Dies at 67
David Lyle, a TV veteran who championed unscripted TV and headed National Geographic Channels and Fox Reality Channel, died Thursday at his home in Los Angeles after a long battle with cancer. He was 67.
After working in TV in Australia and in London, Lyle came to Los Angeles in 2001 as head of FremantleMedia North America where he helped launch “American Idol” on Fox. He most recently served as president of Pact US, an advocacy org for unscripted TV producers.
Earlier this year, Lyle helped steer the merger of Pact US with the rival Nonfiction Producers Association, creating Npact. The organization reps most of the largest unscripted TV production companies.
“David Lyle was one of the few television executives who thrived on both a creative and business level,” said Howard T. Owens, co-CEO of Propagate Content, who worked with Lyle at Nat Geo. “He was one of the kindest, most fun, and »

Marvel’s ‘The Punisher’ Release Date May Finally Be Revealed
The trailers and ads for The Punisher have been chock full of violence, gore, and intrigue, but they’re all missing one thing: the release date.

But it may be thanks to an […]

USA and Oxygen Acquire Rerun Rights to ‘Chicago P.D.’
“Chicago P.D.” is one of three Chicago-based procedurals that have become pillars of NBC’s primetime lineup. “Chicago Fire” launched the franchise in 2012, followed by “Chicago P.D.” in 2014 and “Chicago Med” in 2015. Last season, NBC fielded a fourth installment, the legal-themed “Chicago Justice,” but the show was not renewed for a second year.
The “Chicago” shows have been solid performers for NBC but according to industry sources they have been a tough sell in domestic syndication. “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.” have been on the market for some time. Industry sources said “P.D.” in the combined deal with NBCUniversal siblings USA and Oxygen fetched about $500,000 an episode. That »

Rick And Morty Season 3’s Best Scenes Recreated In Fallout 4
I think it would take a seriously dedicated fan of Fallout 4 and Rick and Morty to really break down all of the scenes that are represented in this clip. I know of at least one since I’ve had to write on it before. But I’ll say this as I’ve said it in the recent past, I still don’t know how Rick and Morty is so popular but I’ll just leave it that it is. The pickle Rick scene is pretty obvious since it’s been so pervasive for so long with the show. It still stands out as one of

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Will Phyllis Get Tired of Billy?
Young and the Restless fans know things are never going to work with Phyllis and Billy. They are a couple that works well together night now, but that will certainly end before much longer. One thing they don’t have going for them is they don’t share kids. He shares kids with Victoria, and that’s a situation he cannot change. They have the kind of bond that he and Phyllis will never share, and that makes us wonder how long they might really last. We give them a few more months, but that’s the best we can do. She can play

NFL to Air Ad Promoting Unity in Wake of Trump Attacks on Anthem Protests
The NFL plans to air an ad promoting unity following President Donald Trump’s campaign to “fire or suspend” National Anthem protestors.
The one-minute ad, originally produced for the Super Bowl earlier this year, will run during NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” telecast.
“We think this is the single best response to demonstrate what we are about,” an NFL spokesman told CNN, which first reported the news.
“Inside these lines, we don’t have to come from the same place to help each other reach the same destination,” Forest Whitaker intones in the ad. “Inside these lines, we may have our differences, but recognize there’s more that unites us.”
This comes as a reaction to a feud that ignited over the weekend between Trump and the NFL. On Friday, Trump told a rally in Alabama, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to »

Pittsburgh Steelers Will Stay In Locker Room During Anthem Today; Trump Kicks Off Sunday With Boycott Tweet – Update
The Pittsburgh Steelers will stay in the locker room during the playing of the national anthem today. The team’s decision is intended to show a united front. Other teams are expected to follow suit, though there’s some question about whether NFL rules call for teams to actually be on field during the anthem, or whether the league would enforce the rule. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin revealed the locker room plan to CBS sideline reporter Jamie Erdahl. Watch a clip… »

Björk’s Latest Music Video is Nothing Short of Mesmerizing
Mesmerizing is the right word without any doubt. Bjork is definitely unique when it comes to doing, well, anything. Her newest video, The Gate, is an exercise in odd that meets a whole lot of wonderful in terms of visuals. There’s really nothing in this video that’s boring and there is enough to look at that it keeps you wondering just what’s going to come next with each passing second. Bjork’s music is kind of an acquired taste since she really doesn’t fall within the realm of what a lot of people tend to think of as music, but it’s

Chuck vs. The 10th Anniversary: We Spy 29 Memorable Guest Stars
NBC’s Chuck may not have ever enjoyed a great wealth of viewers, but there’s one thing the spy comedy has always been rich in: fun guest stars, including those playing up their past geek cred or pivoting 180-degrees against type.
VideosChuck‘s Finale: Years Later, Does That Kiss Still Make You Weak?
As the beloved, often bubble-riding series on Sept. 24 marks the 10th anniversary of its premiere, TVLine decided to mark the occasion by revisiting dozens of the familiar faces who entered Chuck, Sarah, Morgan, Casey, Ellie and Awesome’s lives — for better or for a deceptive worse. »
‘Young Sheldon’ Review: The Emotional Complexity of this ‘Big Bang Theory’ Prequel Will Stun Haters and Fans Alike
There’s a shot in the “Young Sheldon” premiere, directed by “Jungle Book” helmer Jon Favreau, so pitiful it feels pulled from a Todd Haynes film more than a sitcom spinoff. After a family dinner that proves distressing not only for the arguments had but for how ordinary the hostility comes across, the camera pulls back through a narrow doorway, framing the five-some in an inescapable box of childish bickering and unspoken frustrations. They’re trapped, and “Young Sheldon” asks how they’ll ever escape.
Of course, viewers know Sheldon gets out. The series almost immediately reframes his life in “The Big Bang Theory” as a grand success story, but that doesn’t change how this prequel series will be seen. Like a family permanently stuck in a dining room debate, viewers have to live in the moment with Sheldon, and that experience (so far) feels as heartbreaking — and fulfilling »

Here Are Some Easter Eggs you Missed in Kingsman: The Golden Circle
Every movie seems to have Easter eggs in it nowadays, at least action and spoof movies that people tend to like. They’re just fun little bits that get thrown into the mix to be noticed or ignored as the viewer sees fit.

In Kingsman: The Golden Circle, there are a few notable Easter eggs that people should take note of mostly because they have a lot to do

The Good Place Season 2 Premiere Recap and Review
If you missed out on season 1 of “The Good Place”, it’s a very unique and exceedingly smart comedy that revolves around the question of what actually makes up the proverbial “good person”. It stars Kristen Bell as an everyday woman named Eleanor Shellstrop who passes on and goes to the afterlife but ends up, you guessed it, in the good place rather than the bad place because of an error of some sort. And, she’s definitely somebody who really belongs in the bad place. The Good Place is being run by its architect, Michael, who is a very wise
