the big bang theory

Arguably the most-hyped show coming into this new season has to be Gotham. FOX’s Batman prequel didn’t disappoint in terms of ratings. It notched 8 million viewers and a 3.2 rating among the coveted 18-49 demo. Definitely solid given it was against two back-to-back episodes of The Big Bang Theory. Only time will tell if the show can maintain or build upon its series premiere numbers.

Also debuting well was Scorpion over at CBS. It generated 14 million viewers and a 3.3 rating. No doubt aided greatly by it’s cushy lead-in- The Big Bang Theory double header. I don’t typically watch shows on the eye network, but this one has me intrigued. I can’t wait to check it out when I get back from my Hawaiian vacay.

Unfortunately for ABC, the winning streak for freshman shows ended with Forever. The show did alright with 8.3 million viewers but only managed to snag 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demo. That number represents a 32 percent decrease from Castle which occupied the post-Dancing With The Stars slot last season. Don’t expect a long life for this immortality drama.

The 2013-2014 TV season which began on September 23 officially ends tomorrow. With only one night left to tabulate, Nielsen has unveiled the most popular shows on broadcast television this past year.

Once again, NFL dominated the list, taking the top slot along with No. 3, No. 4 and No. 10. Even though baseball is the nation’s pastime, Americans surely do love their football.

The top-rated comedy is not surprisingly, The Big Bang Theory. With regards to drama, Grey’s Anatomy continues to do well after all these years. The Voice takes the crown as the most-watched reality show of the season. Remember when American Idol not only was top dog in singing competitions but also the No. 1 show in the country overall?

Check out the rest of the Top 50, or should I say 55 since there’s a clusterf*ck at the bottom of the list. Each rating point in the 18-49 demo equals 1.3 million viewers.

On the heels of CBS renewing The Big Bang Theory for three more seasons, the eye network delivered good news to 18 of their other series. Nine of those were dramas which include CSI; Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds, Elementary, The Good Wife, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles and Person of Interest.

“The best way to launch new shows in the fall and throughout the season is to surround them with a strong and stable lineup of successful series,” said Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler. “The shows we’re picking up today cut across every night of the week and feature genre leaders, time period winners and the most-watched shows on broadcast television.”

What Was The Most Pirated Show Of 2013?

In: Donovan, TV Shows
most-pirated-shows-2013

Whether we like to admit it or not (for legal reasons), we’ve all downloaded our favorite TV shows through bittorrent at some point or another. Sometimes we can’t help it because our PVR/DVR decided to go crazy and miss a show or someone in our household “accidentally” deleted it after watching it themselves. Or my most annoying pet peeve, when a preceding show bleeds into regularly scheduled programming. That drives me insane. Regardless of the reason, we’ve all done it. And according to the 2013 statistics compiled by TorrentFreak.com, millions of us are guilty as charged.

Once again Game of Thrones is the reigning king/queen of illegal downloads. The site reports that the season three finale of the HBO fantasy series was illegally downloaded 5.9 million times, while 5.4 million viewers watched the finale on television legally. One would think this would piss off HBO execs, right? Not so.

All I have to say is if US Weekly’s report is true then this sitcom actress is one lucky beyotch. Seriously, what I wouldn’t give to see Henry Cavill in the flesh, let alone touch that sculpted Man of Steel body of his. Not only does this blond actress star in a huge comedy hit, but she’s the leading lady in Cavill’s life. Find out who’s rumored to be in a secret relationship with Superman below.

Mayim Bialik: Blossoming To Science

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick, TV Shows

When I was a kid, at one time one of my favorite TV shows was definitely Blossom. “Don’t know about the future, that’s anybody’s guess / A’int no good-a-reason for gettin’ all depressed.” I still remember all the words to the theme song!

After the show ended, Mayim Bialik (who played Blossom) decided she didn’t want to act anymore and wanted to pursue her interests in neuroscience. More recently, she made a comeback in The Big Bang Theory and put her neuroscience to work. Such a fascinating woman!

In a new video for PBS’s “The Secret Life of Scientists,” Blossom talks about her double life in acting and neuroscience in a special segment called “Mayam Bialik: Blossoming Into Science.” The PBS show is an Emmy-nominated web video series and site from the makers of the acclaimed science series, PBS’s NOVA. Each episode profiles one of today’s leading scientists, and shows what happens when the lab coats come off. Watch the episode below!

Big Bang Theory Proves It’s Big Bang-ness

In: Donovan, TV Shows

I don’t normally share Nielsen Ratings unless it’s the premiere week or finale episodes, but this truly has me impressed. Congrats CBS.

After a three-week winter break hiatus, The Big Bang Theory came roaring back. Not only did viewers tune in, but they came in droves. Currently in its sixth season, the CBS comedy achieved its best ratings EVER. Given the viewership decline of veteran shows, this feat is truly remarkable. Its strong showing also benefited all the shows following it. Two and a Half Men hit season highs, while Person of Interest and Elementary both matched series bests. Find out how many “bangers” tuned in below.
