NBC Pushes ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ Live Musical to 2018

4 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC has delayed its plan produce “Bye Bye Birdie” toplined by Jennifer Lopez as live musical until next year.

The tuner had been set to air as NBC’s holiday musical event this year. The decision to push it a year was driven by Lopez’s overflowing schedule, which includes two series for NBC, “World of Dance” and the drama “Shades of Blue.”

The postponement of “Birdie” means NBC will not stage a musical event this holiday season. Earlier this month, NBC unveiled plans for a “Jesus Christ Superstar Live” event to air on Easter Sunday next year. That project will be shepherded by Craig Zedon and Neil Meron, the pair behind all of NBC’s live musical events to date. Given the high cost of the one-night-only live events, it was unlikely that NBC could field “Superstar” just a few months after staging “Birdie,” had the show stayed on its original date, and »

Neither did the network airing “Empire’s” season finale, though: Fox finished second in the key 18-49 demographic, but was fourth among total viewers.

That leaves CBS and NBC, and last night belong to the “Survivor” net.

CBS was first in ratings with a 1.7 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 7.8 million, »

‘Fargo’ Review: A Battle Between Ewan McGregors Has Never Felt So Wretched — And Season 3 Never More Exciting

18 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The review below contains spoilers for “Fargo” Season 3, Episode 6, “The Lord of No Mercy.”]

Immediate Reaction

Gloria Burgle to the rescue!

After an episode of incredible tension and unexpected tragedy, we didn’t realize how badly we needed to hear Carrie Coon say, “Screw it,” whip the cruiser around, and high-tail it back to “the P.O.’s domicile.” While the simultaneously ominous and uplifting strings certainly served to get our hearts beating, “Fargo” may as well have played Bonnie Tyler’s famous “Footloose” jam “Holding Out for a Hero” — because one is on the way!

It’s just we had to hold out a little too long. Just enough road blocks were thrown in front of Burgle to keep her from cracking the case earlier, and all that time led to an inevitable tragedy. Ray (Ewan McGregor) is the first major victim of Season 3 (unless you count the annual pilot sacrifice of Scoot McNairy’s Maurice Lafay), in a particularly well-orchestrated offing. First »

Streaming services Netflix and Amazon will not participate in the 2017 Television Critics Association summer press tour.

Ctam, the cable- and broadband-television trade organization, released its schedule for summer press tour Wednesday. That schedule, which for the first time includes streaming services alongside pay-cable channels such as HBO, Discovery, and TNT, did not include dates for Netflix or Amazon.

“I cannot answer to what Netflix’s reasons are for not presenting at the Summer TCA Tour,” said Ctam spokesperson Mary Shaw in a statement Thursday. “However, I can say that there are a lot of variables that go into a content provider being able to present at any given tour. There are many factors that go into a successful presentation e.g., executive availability, talent availability, production schedules, marketing materials, etc. As for the Ctam cable and streaming portion of the tour, we have a robust five days of programming lined up for the critics.  I »

Jimmy Kimmel is Fascinated by Zac Efron and Madonna’s Possible Fling

47 minutes ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Slowly but surely Zac Efron is turning into the kind of superstar that everyone assumed he would be.  It was looking a little lost for him for a while after his initial fame from High School Musical but ever since Efron announced that he had gotten control over his drinking, he’s been a new man.  I feel like he’s one good performance away from being an A-lister.  I would say that technically he’s an A-lister right now but it’s more in a Dwayne Johnson kind of a way, which is certainly no bad thing.  Efron gets all the “hot guy

For most actors, landing a highly successful part comes after years of struggling to get by and taking any small role that is available. For a lucky few, however, a combination of timing, talent, and the right role allow an actor to jump right into the spotlight of a major production. While these instances are rare, they can allow fans to see an actor grow and develop as they adjust to the fame that comes with high profile roles. One such burgeoning star is Allison Tolman, one of the stars of the highly acclaimed Fargo. This role catapulted Tolman into

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sean Hannity has been one of Fox News Channel’s most popular personalities, throwing red meat daily to the cable network’s core red-state viewers by talking up issues of interest to conservatives. If he were to leave, the network would likely get the blues.

Hannity is no stranger to controversy – he has sparred with former colleague Megyn Kelly and CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, to name a few – but he is at the center of a new one that has sparked a few defections from his show by a handful of advertisers as well as speculation over whether he might return from a Memorial Day weekend vacation that began after his broadcast last night.

“Like the rest of the country, Sean Hannity is taking a vacation for Memorial Day weekend and will be back on Tuesday,” the 21st Century Fox-owned network said in a statement Friday. “Those who suggest otherwise are going to look foolish.” Hannity »
