Supergirl Snags Full Season Pickup

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Supergirl will continue to take flight for a few more episodes. CBS gave their superhero series a nearly full season pickup, ordering an additional seven episodes. Season 1 will now contain 20 episodes in total, just two shows shy of a traditional full-season order.

The highly-touted series started off strongly, premiering with 13 million viewers and a 3.1 demo rating. Subsequent episodes declined with the most recent drawing a series low of 7.2 million and 1.5 rating.

On the positive side, CBS notes the series averages 11.24 million viewers with a 2.8 in the coveted adults 18–49 demographic, a year-over-year uptick of 46 percent in total viewers and 40 percent for the demo for the same time period.

Supergirl now joins CBS’ other freshman series to get additional episode orders. Limitless and Life in Pieces will air 22 episodes in total, while Code Black gets only 18.

Are you still watching Supergirl? Do you think it’ll earn a second season renewal? Weigh in below.


It’s going to be a social affair for the 28th Season of The Amazing Race. The globetrotting competition looked to social media to cast the next batch of racers. The 11 teams consist of YouTube personalities, Instagram models and Vine stars. In other words, ‘social media influencers.’ The most notable names (at least the ones I’ve heard before) are YouTubers Tyler Oakley and Korey Kuhl.

Typically, CBS doesn’t reveal the cast until a few weeks before it premieres and never while a current season is still airing. But with these racers always on social media, I’m sure their millions of fans would’ve noticed them gone and might’ve even filed missing persons reports 😉

For the first time ever, fans can get a behind-the-scenes look at the first leg of Season 28 when host Phil Koeghan live streams it on his Facebook page on Sunday (November 15) at 10:30 PM EST! The Amazing Race Season 28 premieres in February. Check out the teams below.

Which CBS Show Gets The Post Super Bowl 50 Slot?

In: Donovan, TV Shows

With exception to scoring the half-time gig or playing in the Super Bowl itself, snagging the coveted timeslot after the big game is the next big thing. The network airing the annual event can either launch a new show or give a big promotional push to an existing one. Considering all the eyeballs that stay tuned in, a show can truly benefit from the exposure.

Last year, NBC used the huge platform to help out The Blacklist as it moved to its new Thursday night slot. It netted 25.7 million viewers in overnight numbers. The year before that, FOX aired New Girl to 26.3 eyeballs. Other previous lead-out shows include Grey’s Anatomy (ABC, 2006), Alias (ABC, 2003), Malcolm In The Middle (FOX, 2002) and Friends (NBC, 1996). The latter scored the biggest numbers in recent memory with over 52 million staying for a cup of coffee with the Central Perk gang.

The last time CBS aired the Super Bowl, it offered up a special edition of Elementary which drew in 20.9 million viewers. Unfortunately for the eye network, that was the lowest-rated post-game showing in the past 10 years. Find out below, which show on CBS’ schedule snagged the spot.

Victoria’s Secret 2015 Fantasy Bra Unveiled

In: Donovan, Fashion

Victoria’s Secret doubled down last year when it came to their Fantasy Bra. The brand offered up two, each costing about $2 million each. The stunning duo of Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio were tapped to walk down the runway, modeling the glittery brassieres.

For the 2015 edition, the lingerie brand has returned back to showcasing just one. Lily Aldridge gets the honor of wearing the Mouawad-designed bra which is adorned with over 6,500 precious gems, including diamonds blue topaz, yellow sapphires and pink quartz all set in 18-karat gold. This marks the first time the 29-year-old model has received the coveted task.

Check out the previous designs below and be sure to tune in to CBS on December 8 for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. It’s one of my favorite annual television events of the year.

CBS Developing New Star Trek Series

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Trekkies brace yourselves. A new Star Trek series is being developed over at CBS. The updated series will introduce new characters “seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966,” according to the press release.

Alex Kurtzman who worked on both the 2009 Star Trek feature film and its sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, will executive produce the new show. The new television series is not related to the upcoming feature film, Star Trek Beyond, which hits theaters in summer 2016.

Supergirl Scores Biggest Series Premiere This Fall

In: Donovan, TV Shows

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.

CBS Developing MacGyver Reboot

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Best.News.Ever!!! MacGyver was one of my favorite shows from my childhood. Dude could diffuse a bomb with just a paperclip or create a smoke distraction using everyday kitchen supplies. Sadly though, I made the mistake of rewatching the series a few years back. Love the show but some series don’t age very well. That’s exactly why this reboot is absolutely perfect. Think of all the things he can fashion with today’s technology.

Furious 7 and Insidious director James Wan is executive producing the project and directing the pilot. Henry Winkler, who exec produced the original series, is also on board to serve in the same capacity.

“A reimagining of the television series of the same name, following a 20-something MacGyver as he gets recruited into a clandestine organization where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening.” – CBS

The original MacGyver ran for seven season on ABC from 1982-1992. Several attempts have been made to bring back the series both on the small and big screen, but no avail. Given Hollywood’s current love for all things nostalgic like Full House, Twin Peaks, Prison Break and The Muppets, it appears this time it actually might happen.

Are you excited at the prospect for a new and updated MacGyver? Weigh in below after checking out some memorable moments from the original series.

CBS Renews Zoo For A Second Season

In: Donovan, TV Shows

James Wolk has finally done it. The 30-year-old actor has notoriously bad luck when picking projects in the past. FOX’s Lone Star and CBS’ The Crazy Ones are just two shows that were canceled after one season. Georgetown never even saw the light of day on ABC. Success at long last. Wolk will finally get to see what a second season tastes like.

CBS decided to renew its summer series Zoo for a sophomore run. The show adapted from a James Patterson novel debuted in June to 8.18 million viewers and a 1.2 in the 18–49 demographic. It ended its freshman season with 4.81 million viewers and 0.9 in the rating. With Under The Dome canceled, prospects looked good for Zoo to return. The future of Extant, however, is still unknown.

“Zoo’s thrilling stories clicked with audiences each week during a very competitive summer,” said Glenn Geller, president of CBS Entertainment. “We’re excited for viewers to see where our talented writers and cast take them as the adventure continues to unfold during season two in the ultimate fight of man vs. beast.”

Did you watch Zoo? I did and actually enjoyed the first half of the season. The second half, especially the season finale was a bit of a letdown. Weigh in below.
