Ratings For Wicked City Not So Wicked

In: Donovan, TV Shows
wicked-city-ratings

Poor Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick. The guys of Gossip Girl aren’t having the best fall. Crawford’s Blood & Oil stumbled out the gate and recently got its episode order cut from 13 to 10. In other words, it’s pretty much canceled.

Westwick’s future on ABC doesn’t look that bright either. Wicked City premiered last night to lackluster ratings. The serial killer drama snagged just 3.3 million viewers and a 0.9 rating. That paltry number is even smaller than last season’s Forever who previously occupied the slot. It was down 47% from the Ioan Gruffudd drama’s premiere.

Clearly, viewers weren’t in the mood for violence porn. Did you watch the series premiere? I did and thought it was average. Westwick and Erika Christensen were the best part, along with the 80s soundtrack playing in the background. Weigh in below.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve watched the Miss Universe pageant every year. That is until Donald Trump opened his big mouth. I missed the last one due to that fool.

After airing on NBC for a dozen years, the network dissolved their partnership after Trump’s controversial remarks about immigrants. The 2015 competition ended up airing on Reelz. It appears, the Miss Universe Organization has found a new home.

The Miss Universe telecast is one of the most-watched events in the world, with distribution in approximately 190 countries and territories. Naturally, it’s a sought-after commodity. FOX has stepped up and snagged the rights to air both Miss Universe and Miss USA.

“The Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants are iconic television events loved by generations of viewers around the world,” Fox president David Madden said in a statement. “We are very excited to partner with IMG and The Miss Universe Organization to infuse a fresh new energy into these perennial broadcast favorites.”

Transgender models have appeared previously on global versions of the Top Model franchise, most notably Isis King on America’s Next Top Model Cycle 11 and ANTM: All Stars. None of them, however, have ever walked away with the title. That is, until now.

Over 640,000 Dutch viewers tuned in this week to witness Loiza Lamers make history. The 20-year-old stunner won Season 8 of Holland’s Next Top Model, becoming the first transgender from the Top Model franchise to do so. Loiza later took to Instagram to thank her fans.

“Dear all!!! Thank you for all your votes sweet comments and support. I am so very happy with everything I got to experience. Thanks thanks thanks!”

Born male named Lucas, Lamers underwent surgeries when she turned 18. When the former hairdresser entered the competition, no one knew of her transgender status. As the competition went on, Loiza decided to tell her story a few weeks before the live finale.

Check out her winning moment below, along with photos from the cycle’s photoshoots. Congrats to Loiza for making history.

At this rate, Thursdays won’t be the only night dominated by Shonda Rhimes. The 45-year-old prolific producer is developing yet another series for ABC. This time, however, she’s teaming up with cast members from one of her hits shows.

Deadline.com reports Kerry Washington and her Scandal co-star Katie Lowes are executive producing a comedic drama about nannies for Shondaland. The project is “described as an edgy and comical upstairs-downstairs look at the insanity of modern child-rearing and focuses on a clique of young nannies, a trio of interconnected families and their various support staffs, all trying to help the kids grow up when they haven’t quite grown up themselves.” Sounds like Lifetime’s Devious Maids but with nannies on the forefront.

‘Witness the rebirth of Kristen Wiig’ – Salon

‘Kristen Wiig is a revelation’ – Rolling Stone

‘This is the Wiigaissance’ Dr. Oz

That’s just the tip of the iceberg of all the positive reviews Kristen Wiig is receiving for her new role. The 42-year-old actress debuted the trailer for her new, extremely independent movie, Crying In A Sweater, on Jimmy Kimmel Live! As the title suggests, the Michael Bay-directed film is exactly that. Wiig crying incessantly in a non-stop parade of bulky sweaters.

Obviously, the clip is just a joke poking fun at those Oscar bait roles, actors take in hopes of winning an Academy Award. Check out the humorous sketch below.

Supergirl Scores Biggest Series Premiere This Fall

In: Donovan, TV Shows
supergirl-nielsen-ratings

Supergirl, arguably, was the fall’s most highly-anticipated new offering. CBS promoted the heck out of it and gave the superhero series a plum timeslot for its debut. The eye network must be breathing a sigh of relief today. The push paid off. Supergirl took flight, and in a big way.

Prior to the action adventure series’ debut, CBS’ Life In Pieces netted the biggest audience among new shows with 11.3 million viewers, while NBC’s Blindspot scored the highest rating in the coveted 18-49 demo (3.1). Supergirl launched with 14 million viewers and snagged a 3.2 rating. Pretty impressive, given the pilot leaked months ago.

Time will tell if Superman’s cousin can maintain those numbers. High-concept serialized superhero shows can drop off sharply after debuting big. Just look at FOX’s Gotham. Speaking of superheroes, Supergirl is the first female-focused costumed superhero show to hit a Big 4 broadcast network in decades. Shocking right?

Did you watch Supergirl? I actually quite enjoyed the balance of drama and comedy elements. Plus, I love me some Calista Flockhart. Did you see that twist at the end coming? #gamechanger. Weigh in below.

Lip Sync Battle, based on the popular segment on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, was a breakout hit for Spike TV. Naturally, the network renewed it for a second season.

With A-listers like Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, Justin Bieber, Taraji P. Henson and more participating in the inaugural season, could the network put together a line-up as equally star-studded for its sophomore run? The answer seems to be yes.

Reportedly, Channing Tatum has signed up for the show. Even more exciting is that Beyonce is also on board and going to battle against him. Correction, she’ll assist Tatum’s true opponent. Find out below who the “Drunk In Love” singer is helping out.

He’s baaaaaack!!!

Ricky Gervais is set to return to the Golden Globes stage. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association revealed the 54-year-old comedian will host the 73rd Golden Globes being held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 10.

“Tina and Amy are a hard act to follow but Ricky is completely fearless and entirely up for the job,” NBC’s president of alternative and late-night Paul Telegdy said (via Deadline). “He always did us proud. Welcome back, Ricky.”
