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' 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...

‘Today’ Wins the Week in TV Ratings With Hoda Kotb in for Matt Lauer
The “Today” show may have lost Matt Lauer, but it’s gaining viewers.

With regular 10 o’clock host Hoda Kotb in the now-disgraced anchor’s chair, “Today” won last week in total viewers, and in ratings for the key demographics of adults ages 25-54 and 18-49. Combined with the prior week’s win, this marks the first two-week, across-the-board victories for “Today” in about a year.

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,

Netflix Pulls the Trigger on ‘The Punisher’ Season 2

The tragedy of the 21st Century superhero movie is that if it isn’t made by Marvel, it probably isn’t worth watching. The one holdout to this in recent memory has been Fox’s X-Men series, which by rights shouldn’t count for two distinct reasons. The first is that, although not made by Marvel Studios and not part of the McU, they are still based on a Marvel Comics property. The second is that it appears that they will soon be absorbed into the House of Mouse (and, by proxy, be folded into the McU). Although not quite as severe as on

Check Out This 107 Year Old Silent Version of Wizard of Oz

I can’t decide if this 107-year old silent version of The Wizard of Oz is genius or just really creepy. Obviously the special effects back in those days weren’t that great and the costumes left a lot to be desired but when you didn’t have a lot to go on as in what could be done and what to expect then it might have been something rather extraordinary. There are definitely some elements that changed throughout time and some that are just flat out strange to watch since the era was something far different than anything we know of now.

Famous Photo “Lunch Atop a Skyscraper” Isn’t Even the Empire State Building

A lot of us have seen this famous photo titled Lunch Atop a Skyscraper once or twice in history books and we’ve all been led to believe it had something to do with the construction of the Empire State Building. First, it didn’t. This picture was taken at Rockefeller Center in Midtown. Plus, the whole thing was staged. Guys didn’t eat lunch like this that often no matter what history might tell you. If you look even with just a glance there are no safety harnesses, no ropes, no anything that could catch these guys if they fell except each

When The Quest for the Holy Grail Meets Parkour in Real Life

Parkour meeting the quest for the holy grail in real life seems like a fantasy come true, but unfortunately that’s probably all it would be. I happen to love watching Parkour. I couldn’t do it for the life of me but it’s interesting to watch those that do manage these movements as they run, jump, flip, and perform acrobatic feats of strength and agility that are simply amazing to behold. Now if they could do that in chainmail armor however that would be something quite impressive to see. These suits of armor were not the incredibly heavy plates that went

The Top Uses of Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” in Movies or TV

If you’ve heard this song before then you know what to listen for when the organ music comes in the beginning and the voice of Prince sparks up, giving what almost sounds like a eulogy on this thing called life. It’s a very iconic and powerful sound that managed to make this song into his second number one hit and allowed the song to travel upwards on the charts even after his passing. The song seems to have a lot of people thinking that it speaks about having or clinging to Christian values, but whatever you want to believe about
