Ratings: NBC Takes Tuesday With ‘AGT’ Season High, Paley Center Salute to ‘This Is Us’
NBC grabbed another Tuesday win thanks to “America’s Got Talent” and “This Is Us” — and the latter program didn’t even air last night.

“America’s Got Talent” hit a season high in total viewers, coming in with the best Nielsen numbers in both the all-important adults 18-49 range and overall eyeballs for Tuesday night’s primetime block.

Meanwhile, “This Is Us,” which returns for its third season next week, got some love via the “Paley Center Salutes ‘This Is Us'” special. The program came in right behind “Agt” as the night’s No. 2 program in the key 18-49 demo.

Broadcast in Chaos: Big Four Networks Face Era of Turmoil and Change

With the launch of the 2018-19 Nielsen season just days away, each of the Big Four broadcasters is somewhere between transition and utter disarray.

At CBS, the departure of CEO Leslie Moonves amid sexual harassment and assault allegations has shaken the network’s foundation — a foundation already jostled by a legal showdown between Moonves and controlling shareholder Shari Redstone over a possible shotgun merger with Viacom. ABC and Fox Broadcasting both face imminent, existential change caused by the pending megadeal between their two parent companies. And NBC, now the most dominant broadcaster by almost any ratings measure, is navigating upper-level

‘Doctor Who’ Trailer: The First Female Doctor Is Here, and She’s Glorious — Watch
The news that Jodie Whittaker would be taking on the role of the 13th Doctor has been out for some time, but every new glimpse of her take on the iconic role seems to prove that gender has nothing to do with adventures through space and time.

Season 11 will be a fresh start for the series, bringing in not just Whittaker but incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall (succeeding Steven Moffat in the role) and a whole new cast. In the new trailer released below, we get glimpses of action, explosions, monsters, and the Doctor’s new companions, who have no problem pointing out who exactly is in charge.

Along with the trailer, the BBC released official descriptions for the first two episodes of the season, as follows:

Episode One – The Woman Who Fell To Earth – Sunday, October 7th

Variety’s Critics Break Down the Highs and Lows of Emmys 2018
Outside of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” doing its best to sweep the comedy awards, the 70th annual Emmy Awards seemed determined to surprise prognosticators. Several winners, including Bill Hader of “Barry” for actor in a comedy series and Regina King of “Seven Seconds” for actress in a limited series were genuinely shocked to end up onstage with a statue in their hands, having gone up against such stiff competition that few predicted their victories. Even the highly anticipated conclusion of the Netflix versus HBO showdown ended in a draw, with both the streaming giant and premium cable favorite each ending the night with 23 wins apiece.

Five Big Takeaways From the 2018 Emmy Awards

Not even the Emmys could break the TV business’ dark mood. Sexual assault and harassment allegations against high-ranking figures, mega-acquisition deals that have created massive uncertainty, and continued struggles to represent diversity on screen — all combined to create an atmosphere in which celebrating TV proved too difficult a task (one made no easier by a pair of curiously low-energy hosts). But the key takeaways from Sept. 17’s Primetime Emmy Awards did at least provide an accurate reflection of an unsettled industry.

Rachel Brosnahan on Finding Mrs. Maisel and Her ‘Marvelous’ Emmys Night
In the end, a piece of dental floss saved the day.

Rachel Brosnahan’s otherwise perfect night at the Emmy Awards — which included not only a trophy for best actress in a comedy for Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” but also a win for comedy series, among others — had one tiny flaw. There was the little matter of the diamond ring she couldn’t get off her hand.

Hours earlier, in her rush to get dressed, she tried on the “beautiful, beautiful” ring. But then she wanted to switch it to another finger — and it wouldn’t budge. “And

Tribeca TV Festival Grows As It Embraces Television Greats Like Bryan Cranston, Rosario Dawson, and Anthony Bourdain

As the film festival world continues to explore how best to spotlight the explosion of great television within its programming, it’s perhaps the small-screen-specific fests that might be the best guide for doing it successfully.

For example, this weekend’s second annual Tribeca TV Festival, an offshoot of the well-established Tribeca Film Festival, will showcase some truly exciting TV, both studio and independent. “We’re aiming for TV experiences that mirror our programming goals for the main festival—that is, finding unique storytelling pieces for a wide range of audiences that promise a post-screening interaction with the creative talent in front of and behind the camera,” said senior programmer Liza Domnitz. “Whether that be a beloved, returning favorite series like ‘Ray Donovan,’ a premiere black comedy like ‘Wayne,’ or a commemoration of a new type of storytelling with ‘Shark Tank,’ we want to offer people the opportunity to have

Rare Behind the Scenes Photos of Return of the Jedi

I think it’s safe to say that whenever you can get your hands on any vintage rarely seen photos of anything from any Star Wars movie you rush to get these up for everyone to see. Which is why when I came across these old school “Return of the Jedi” photos I knew that you guys would want to see them. There’s just something inexplicable about the draw of the Star Wars Universe but it’s probably the most addicting cinematic series that’s every graced the screen. I’ve never seen something as powerful as these when it comes to movies, never.
