Ratings: The Walking Dead Fall Finale Numbers the Worst Since Season 2
In the wake of Sunday’s fall finale of The Walking Dead, the Nielsens delivered to the AMC drama news that was as almost bad as that which Carl shared with Rick, Michonne and viewers in the episode’s last seconds: According to our sister site Variety, “How It’s Gotta Be” was the series’ lowest-rated midseason finale since Season 2 back in 2011.

The plus-sized installment — in which Negan and the Saviors struck back against the AHK (Alexandria/Hilltop/Kingdom) uprising — averaged a 3.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.9 million viewers.

'Homeland' Season 7 Sets Premiere Date
Homeland's seventh season is on the horizon. The drama returns to Showtime on Feb. 11 — and, based on the first trailer, it's attempting to be as timely as ever.

Events pick up after the sixth-season finale, where a President-elect played by Elizabeth Marvel was nearly assassinated and revealed to be something of a shady character. Carrie (Claire Danes) is on the outside, investigating White House corruption, while Saul (Mandy Patinkin) makes the surprise jump from federal prison to Oval Office adviser. The right-wing conspiracy theorist, Homeland's spin on Alex Jones played by Brett O'Keefe, also appears to be involved in...

Ratings: ‘Better Late Than Never’ Premiere Wins at 10pm
Last night, NBC’s “Better Late Than Never” and ABC’s “Great Christmas Light Fight” duked it out in different time slots for the (very unofficial) title of top Monday premiere. A “Bachelor” special leading up to the dating competition’s new season didn’t quite stake much of a claim in the mini-battle. Thanks mostly to “The Voice,” NBC won primetime outright. ABC finished runner-up in the key 18-49 demographic, though CBS was No. 2 among total viewers. NBC was first in ratings with a 1.6 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 8.8 million,

A Wonderful Banjo Cover of Castlevania’s Stalker Theme

Remember Castlevania’s insane stalker theme? It sounds even better on a banjo if you can believe it. I can recall so many hours spent on that game just trying to move through each level without getting killed again and again. And then there were those that somehow found the pattern of the attacks and the entire game in fact and moved through it without any trouble at all. And then as the Castlevania games got more advanced and tougher as time went by I think a lot of people kind of lost interest. The game itself is fun, engaging, and

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 Will Address Its Race Issues, But Will Stick by Its Controversial Soundtrack Choices

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 Will Address Its Race Issues, But Will Stick by Its Controversial Soundtrack Choices
“The Handmaid’s Tale” showrunner Bruce Miller knows the show triggered “thousands of discussions” in its inaugural run — and as production continues on Season 2, Miller said he and his team have been paying attention to those conversations.

One major issue for the Emmy-winning Hulu series — nominated Monday for three Golden Globes — was that how to approach racial issues. While Margaret Atwood’s original novel took place in an all-white world (due to the ethnic purging orchestrated by the nightmare nation of Gilead), Miller and Atwood ended up making the decision to incorporate a diverse cast and focus on the treatment of women within this society.

“There was discussion and praise and criticism for how we integrated or dealt with race in Gilead,” he said. “It brought up a lot of questions that just didn’t come up in the stories in Season 1, that we were able to put it in
