Two Tivos To Paradise 02.07.14: The Big Bang Theory, Psych, Preacher, 24,, More
Posted by Al Norton on 02.07.2014





Hello friends; what's good? Sorry for my absence last week; sometimes the real world likes to step in and remind me of the true list of priorities. I am pretty sure you found a way to go on without me but this is a great place to remind everyone that the Al Norton's Two Tivos To Paradise page on Facebook is the BEST way to stay up-to-date on the world of TV plus interact with your fellow tube lovers in a snarky-yet-respectful environment.

24 fans got a true mark out moment during Sunday's Super Bowl…





And here's a look at the upcoming sophomore season of NBC's Hannibal





I know there's a lot of text - I am making up for my missing a week - but I did my best to break them up with videos. I am sure you won't hesitate to let me know how I did.

You act like you never had news, and you want me to go without.

I'll Tell You Mama, I'll Tell Your Friends, I'll Tell Anyone Whose Heart Can Comprehend
Since we missed a week, here's a look at some of the more noteworthy stories of the last 14 days mixed in with some of the video highlights from the same period, starting off with my favorite commercial from Sunday's big game…






*CBS has won the bidding and will air 8 games from the NFL's Thursday night package next fall. Those 8 games will be simulcast on NFL Network, which also will get 8 games of its own (including two Saturday night games, new to the schedule next year). Jim Nantz and Phil Simms, CBS # 1 team, will broadcast the Thursday night games as well as the network's lead game every Sunday.

The package will be for the first 8 games of the season, with the opening two airing before the start of the 2014-2015 TV season, so CBS' Thursday night lineup, likely continuing to include The Big Bang Theory, will premiere in November, just six weeks after the traditional kick off (see what I did there?). Because of this there will be fewer Big Bang reruns throughout the season, meaning CBS can keep up its domination of the night.

A huge part of the appeal of this package for any of the broadcast networks is the timing; an audience of 15+ million viewers for two nights before the season starts to run commercials for your new shows in front of is priceless.

*USA has confirmed what has been rumored/assumed for months, that the current (eight) season of Psych will be the show's last, with the series finale set for March 26th. As an added bonus, USA will run Psych After Show immediately following the last episode, a live one hour retrospective of the show featuring the cast and writers/producers.

*Jonathan Banks has signed on as a series regular to AMC's upcoming Breaking Bad prequel/spinoff Better Call Saul, reprising his Emmy nominated role of Mike Ehrmantraut.

*Scott Bakula has been cast as the male lead in CBS' planned NCIS spinoff, this one set in New Orleans. Also in the cast are Emmy winner CCH Pounder and Zoe McLellan (Dirty Sexy Money). The characters will be introduced via a two hour episode of NCIS this spring.





*Oscar & Golden globe winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his NYC home today at age 46. His career was a remarkable one, including nominations for an Oscar (4, with 1 win), Golden Globes (4, with 1 win), Tonys, and primetime & daytime Emmys. Hoffman was set to star in and executive produce Happyish, a dark comedy for Showtime that had just been given a first season order.

*Fox renewed Bones for the 2014-2015 season, the show's 10th, and will move it back to Mondays at 8pm when it returns to finish its current season next month. In other renewal news, Banshee (Cinemax) and Top Chef (Bravo) got new seasons.

*Season two of House of Cards doesn't premiere until next week but that didn't stop Netflix from ordering season three today.

* NBC cancelled Sean Saves the World and The Michael J Fox Show. Production had been completed on 14 of the 18 episodes of Sean ordered (the original 13 plus 5 additional), 12 of which have already aired, and MJF has 7 unaired episodes that have been completed; currently the network has no plans to run them and has scheduled Hollywood Game Night to run Thursdays at 9pm once the Olympics end.





*Ron Perlman's first post-Sons of Anarchy TV gig will be starring in the Amazon pilot Hands of God; the story says Perlman will play "Judge Harris Pernell (Perlman), a hard living, law bending married man with a high-end call girl on the side who has a religious awakening and starts having visions and hearing voices through his ventilator-bound son that could be God speaking to him." The pilot is written by Ben Watkins (Burn Notice) and directed by Golden Globe nominee Marc Forster (World War Z, Quantum of Solace, Finding Neverland, Monster's Ball).

* TV winners from last weekend's 66th Annual WGA (Writers Guild of America) Awards included Breaking Bad ("Confessions" - Gennifer Hutchinson), 30 Rock ("Hogcock!" - Jack Burditt & Robert Carlock), The Simpsons ("A Test Before Dying" - Joel H Cohen), A.N.T. Farm ("influANTces" - Vincent Brown), and Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight (Shawn Solvo). Honored for the overall series writing were Breaking Bad (Drama Series), Veep (Comedy Series), The Colbert Report (Comedy/Variety Series), and House of Cards (New Series).

*American Horror Story: Coven closed its season in ratings style last night, with just under 6 million viewers combining the original airing and replays, and almost 4 million of those in the coveted 18-49 demo. It was up 85% in viewers and 72% in the demos from the finale of AHS: Asylum and was the most watched finale in franchise history. For the 2013-2014 season, AHS: Coven ranks in the top 20 shows on all of TV in the demos.

*Legendary producer Robert Evans is developing a dark look at Hollywood in the 1970's that will be pitched to pay-cable channels shortly. Evans was head of Paramount Pictures when they made The Godfather, Love Story, Rosemary's Baby, Harold And Maude, The Odd Couple, The Conversation, and Serpico, to name just a few, and his memoir The Kid Stays in the Picture is must-read for anyone interested in the history of the industry.





*The husband and wife team of Andre and Maria Jacquemetton, who worked together as writers/executive producers on the first six seasons of Mad Man, and Gravity producer David Heyman are adapting the DC comic book DMZ as a series for Syfy. The story takes places in the not-so-distant future following a second American civil war that finds Manhattan turned into demilitarized zone and a young man who finds himself trapped there. Heyman was also a producer of the Harry Potter movies.

*Starz has ordered a six episode first season of Survivor's Guilt, a comedy written by Mike O'Malley and that counts LeBron James as an executive producer; the show is based on James' friendship with his manager Maverick Carter and follows a top level pro basketball player who has to play his best and adjust to his new life while at the same time dealing with friends and family from the old neighborhood.

*What's the hottest show in syndication right now? Family Feud! For the last week in January the show was up 20% from that same week last year and finished NUMBER ONE in the target demo (women 25-54), ahead of long running heavyweights like Judge Judy, Jeopardy, and Wheel of Fortune. Feud is up 336% in that target demo since Steve Harvey took over as host in 2010.

*It's been rumored for a while now but AMC has officially signed to develop Preacher, an adaptation of the 90's comic book of the same name that drew controversy for its story about God walking out on the job and the disgruntled Reverend who sets out to find him and get answers. The story also involves vampires and other soulless killing machines. Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg, who teamed up most recently on This is the End, are writing and executive producing, with Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) signing on as showrunner (if/when the show gets picked up).

Preacher has been in one form or another of development for over a decade, including a big screen movie, a mini-series, and with HBO. AMC seems like a fantastic home, and Rogan & Goldberg are HUGE fans of the comic, making it likely to be a more faithful than not adaptation.




Like A Coin In Your Mint, I'm Dented And I'm Spent With High Treason
Pilot season is here and as such warrants its own section…

NBC
Marry Me reunites Happy Endings star Casey Wilson with the show's creator/showrunner David Caspe (the duo are engaged in real life), about a couple who finds out that getting engaged and planning a wedding is much harder than they ever thought. Ken Marino stars as the male half of the couple. Wilson is also writing and producing the comedy pilot Mason Twins at NBC…

ABC
David Schwimmer has signed to executive produce and star in the ABC comedy pilot Irreversible, which would be his first TV series since Friends. The show is based on the hit Israeli comedy Bilti Hafich and focuses on a very self-absorbed couple who run into self-inflicted difficulty with their lives. The single camera comedy is being written by Seghal Avin, who co-created the original series, and Peter Tolan (Rescue Me, The Larry Sanders Show) is on board as an executive producer… I was already intrigued by the ABC pilot Galavant, a comedic take on fairytales with a musical theme, with said music written by EIGHT time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Beauty & the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Tangled), but now that Psych's Timothy Omundson has been cast as one of the leads, I am fully on board! The story follows a hero trying to avenge the love of his life being stolen from him by the evil King (Omundson) only to find that the love enjoys her new life as the Queen. Joshua Sasse (Rogue) is the hero… Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter) and Jack Davenport (Smash) will star in the ABC drama pilot Sea of Fire, set in a small town where the investigation into a sex tape recently made by three teenage girls uncovers secrets and leads to disappearances and perhaps even murder. Fire is an adaptation of a Dutch series…

CBS
The new CBS comedy pilot The Mistake - the 8th the network has ordered this season - has a high quality team behind it; the show, which is about a couple who thinks they are all done with parenting when their youngest heads off to college only to find out they are pregnant again, is written by Scott Silveri (Friends) and counts among its executive producers David Mandal (Seinfeld, SNL, Curb Your Enthusiasm), Shana Goldberg-Meehan (Friends), and Andy Ackerman (Seinfeld, Curb, Frasier, Cheers, Everybody Loves Raymond), who will direct… CBS has ordered a pilot for More Time With Family, a comedy starring Tom Papa as a guy who decides to change his life to get more time with his wife and children. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are executive producing…Madame Secretary is a drama about a shoots-from-the-hip Secretary of State who isn't great about listening to her boss from Barbara Hall, who created Joan of Arcadia, and executive produced by Morgan Freeman. Tea Leoni has signed on to play the lead. Hall's impressive writing and producing resume includes her current gig on Homeland as well as >Judging Amy, ER, Chicago Hope, Army Wives, Northern Exposure, I'll Fly Away, Anything But Love, Family Ties, and Newhart… CBS has ordered a pilot for an untitled drama from Kevin Williamson (The Following, The Vampire Diaries, Dawson's Creek) about a pair of detectives who focus on stalkers for the LAPD Threat Management Unit…

FOX
Empire (Fox) - from Lee Daniels, Brian Grazer, and Danny Strong, a drama following a family that is highly successful in the hip hop music industry. Fox won a bidding war for this project so the pilot order was sort of a done deal but now it's official. Daniels directed and Strong wrote Lee Daniels The Butler on the big screen last year, and Strong won an Emmy for writing HBO's Game Change

THE CW
Identity is an adaptation of an existing Israeli movie script about a young woman who, during her search for an organ donor for herself, learns she is related to a powerful international family and, post-surgery, the CIA asks her to spy on them. Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman, who work/worked together on Sleepy Hollow, Fringe, and Hawaii 5-0 are executive producing, with the script from Corinne Brinkerhoff (The Good Wife)…Jane The Virgin is a dramedy about a religious, non-sexually active young woman who, through a series of random events, is accidentally artificially inseminated. Jennie Snyder Urman (Emily Owens, MD) is writing and executive producing…iZombie is adaptation of comic book about a young woman who gets a job at a morgue so she can feed her brain eating habit (which allows her to stay human instead of turning into full on zombie) only to find she then inherits the memories of the people those brains belonged to. Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero, who just finished working on the Veronica Mars movie, are executive producing…

But You Were Up To Your Old Tricks In Chapters Four Five And Six
Ratings Notes From The Last Seven Days…

THURSDAY
The Big Bang Theory won the night in totals and demos, albeit down 10% in the latter...All of CBS comedies were down double digits, with The Crazy Ones and Two and a Half Men dropping 20% in the demos...Community & Parks and Recreation matched last week, which means the former has been steady for three weeks...SNL's sports-themed special more than doubled what Sean Saves the World and THE MJF Show had been producing in the demos...Rake was down 24% in week two and held on to less than 50% of its American Idol lead-in demos...Elementary won 10pm in totals and demos, matching last week in both...

FRIDAY
Shark Tank won the night in demos with ease...Last Man Standing (tied a season high) and The Neighbors (best since season premiere) were both up in the demos...20/20 won 10pm in the demos while Blue Bloods won the hour - and the night - in total viewers...Undercover Boss won 8pm the demos...Bones, Enlisted, and Raising Hope were all slightly down...

SATURDAY
A strong ratings Saturday night for NBC; a rerun of the two hour Best of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon special gave the network its best demos in that timeslot since September of 2012, and the Melissa McCarthy hosted episode of SNL was up 12% to be the second highest rated episode of the season (behind only the Jimmy/Justin outing in December).

SUNDAY
With the final numbers reported and calculated, the Super Bowl on Fox drew 111.5 million viewers, making it THE MOST WATCHED TELECAST IN U.S. HISTORY…The post-Super Bowl New Girl was watched by 25.8 million viewers, up from the 20.8 million who stuck around to watch Elementary last year and up from the 23 million who watched The Office in 2009 (the last time a comedy ran after the big game). Brooklyn Nine-Nine pulled in 14.8 million. Both the total audience and demos numbers for both series were far and away new series highs…Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl had a huge Sunday, with a total of 13.5 million viewers over its six airings (12 hours total). The 3pm airing that kicked things off pulled in 3.3 million viewers, up 24% from last year…

MONDAY
HIMYM was down but still won the night in the demos for the FOURTH week in a row...The rest of CBS lineup held steady in the demos, with Intelligence picking up 10% more total viewers...The Bachelor was up in the demos for its best performance in that measure since the season premiere...Castle took advantage of the lack of The Blacklist to win 10pm in totals and demos; as pointed out by ABC via TVLine.com, Castle is having its best ratings year ever in season 10, which is a major rarity...The Following dropped to a new series low, finishing third at 9pm in the demos...Hart of Dixie and Beauty & The Beast matched last week...

TUESDAY
The special post-Super Bowl airings provided no ratings spike for the regularly scheduled New Girl (down 16% from its last Tuesday episode) or Brooklyn Nine-Nine (down 26% from its last episode)...NCIS won the night in totals (19 million) and demos...NCIS: LA was up 21% in the demos to win 9pm and finish a VERY close second to NCIS on the night...Shield tied a series low...The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife enjoyed slight demo gains...The Biggest Loser was down 19% from last season's finale...

WEDNESDAY
The 200th episode of Criminal Minds gave the show its highest total viewer count in almost two years plus a 27% spike in the demos...American Idol was up in totals and demos from last week to win the night in both measures (as a point of reference, last season didn't have a week-to-week increase in both until April)...Modern Family was up and was the night's top scripted demo performer...SVU was down 10%...CSI was up 25% in the demos and won 10pm handily, with Chicago PD in second place and Nashville in third...Arrow was down a bit but The Tomorrow People suffered 20+% losses in total viewers AND demos...

All The Young Dudes, Carry The News
Industry News, Notes, and Hot Rumors… Michael Pitt, last seen on Boardwalk Empire, has signed on for a recurring role on the new season of Hannibal. Pitt will play Mason Verger, a rich and troubled patient of Dr. Lecter's; the character was played by Gary Oldman on the big screen in Hannibal…Tiffani Thiessen is branching out; Dinner at Tiffani's is a Cooking Channel special set to air on Sunday March 23rd where the current White Collar actress (best known for Saved By the Bell and Beverly Hills, 90210) hosts a dinner party that includes guests Nathan Fillion, Wille Garson, and Lindsay Price. While this is currently just a one-time special, these types of projects usually become series (or at least recurring specials) if they are well received… Thanks in no small part to two weeks in a row of ratings gains, NBC has added two episodes to the Chicago PD season, bringing the total to 15. At this point the show seems a lock for the fall schedule… WGN America has landed the cable rights to reruns of Elementary. Previously they had picked up Person of Interest reruns, and both are likely to begin airing at some point in the 2015-2016 season… Goran Visnjic (ER) has been cast as the male lead opposite Halle Berry in CBS' upcoming Extant, a sci-fi drama executive produced by Steven Spielberg. Also signing on is TTTP fave Michael O'Neill, one of TV's better character actors the last decade… ABC has picked up an 8 episode second season of Bet On Your Baby, the Melissa Peterman game show that ran on Saturday nights last summer. I am surprised because a) it wasn't very good and b) I never heard anyone talking/writing about it... TVLand has ordered a first season of Jennifer Falls, a single camera comedy starring Emmy winner Jaime Pressly as a woman who loses her high paying job and has to move her and her teenage daughter back in with her Mom. Matthew Carlson (The Wonder Years, Malcolm in the Middle, Samantha Who?) created the show and will executive produce/showrun... Beat Bobby Flay was a well-received Food Network special last year that now has an 8 episode first season; premiering March 6th, the show opens with two chefs going head-to-head using an ingredient of Bobby's choosing (think Iron Chef) and when a winner has been determined, said winner and Bobby do culinary battle, with the winner making their signature dish and Bobby trying to make his own version of it. A (rotating) panel of judges will decide who wins… Starz has ordered a first season of Flesh and Bone, a dark drama the follows the behind the scenes action at a prestigious NYC ballet company from Moira Walley-Beckett, whose resumes includes Breaking Bad, Pan Am, and Eli Stone…Universal TV is developing a new series based on the Stephen King short story Ayanna, which involves a young girl who can heal the sick. TheWrap.com says NBC is interested (which makes sense as they are they are under the same umbrella) but if they pass the show will be shopped to other networks/channels. King's works have been adapted into two current series - Under the Dome & Haven - with ABC working on another for pilot season based on his short story The New York Times at Special Bargain RatesThe Walking Dead's Lauren Cohan will do multiple episodes of Archer, voicing the wife of a evil and violent dictator (Fred Armisen) who takes a physical interest in the title character…Ice T and Coco have teamed up with Ryan Seacrest Productions on a talk show to be hosted by the couple, with the project being shopped to networks/channels in the coming weeks... Linda Cardellini, last seen in an Emmy nominated run on Mad Men, and Oscar & Golden Globe winner Sissy Spacek have joined Kyle Chandler in the cast of the new (untitled) Netflix drama from the creators of Damages. The story follows a family of adult siblings torn apart by secrets that come to light when their wayward brother returns home…Fox is developing Queen of Everything, an animated comedy about an evil queen having troubles running the world - think The Office meets Once Upon a Time. Zooey Deschanel is executive producing, with a script from Ali Walker (American Dad, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon).

Turns Out Not Where But Who You're With That Really Matters
AKA The Best Thing I've Watched In The Last Seven Days…
This video is likely the kind that you have to be a regular ESPN viewer to appreciate but that doesn't take away from the incredible impressions that Frank Caliendo does in this piece; it's niche comedy but it's still genius.






People Say I'm Crazy Doing What I'm Doing, Well, They Give Me All Kinds Of Warnings To Save Me From Ruin
What's flashed before my eyes the last seven days…





A warm and genuine goodbye from Seth Myers as he leaves SNL for Late Night…I'd described Enlisted as being very Scrubs like, with its mix of farcical humor and genuine heart, and with Friday night's episode the show took a huge step towards living up to that comparison. There are so many dark/ironic comedies on TV (and I like a lot of them) right now that a straight forward, emotions on its sleeve sitcom really seems to stand out. Well, the main reason it stands out of course is that it's quite funny… I love those rare moments of Shark Tank where the Sharks make offers that increase the valuations of people's companies (frequently they spend time lecturing folks about why their companies aren't worthy anywhere near what they think), and last night had two of them, including the final pitch, which found sharks pairing up, splitting apart, and making million dollar offers. Also of note - Diamond Dallas Page pitches DDP Yoga on the next new episode (2/21)… I feel like Bravo and Top Chef missed an opportunity by not airing a one hour Last Chance Kitchen special leading into Wednesday's episode (part one of the season finale). Let's face it, the vast majority of viewers did not go online to watch LCK and a recap special would have filled them in on what they missed, gotten them more invested in the winner, and also made them more likely to seek it out next season. In case you're feeling this thought is familiar, the answer is yes, I did write pretty much exactly the same thing last season… The post-Troy era of Community got off to a good start last night, with the show smartly realizing nothing could top last week's emotional highs so they went for straight comedy, including some wonderful Labyrinth references, a great Aaron Sorkin joke, and some more quality Chang (as opposed to last season where we got more Chang but not more quality). Also happy with the return of Abed's romantic life (and the show addressing how they never follow up on it as well). We're now six episodes in to the current season and I continue to feel confident in call Community the best comedy on TV (AGAIN)… I enjoyed the Rake pilot to the level I did because I am a HUGE Greg Kinnear fan and thought he was great but I won't be watching again for reasons many of you may find silly; I totally understand the concept of suspension of disbelief and have no problems doing so when the situation calls for it but if a show is based in reality it need to follow those rules, so when Keegan went from a hearing where his client changed his plea to not guilty in the morning to arguing that client's case in front of a jury a couple of hours later, I was done. That sort of thing takes weeks, if not months. Again, I know it may seem nitpicky but if you don't want to follow any sort of rules of the law, don't be a lawyer show. We all have our own lines, and it was just so way over any conceivable point of realism that they might as well have had people flying… Those last 5 minutes of last Monday's The Blacklist were pretty great, with the use of Gordon Lightfoot's Sundown a big contributor to the awesome. Also worth noting is the always great work of Campbell Scott; compare that episode to anything he does on Royal Pains and it's almost hard to believe it's the same person…One of the MANY things I love about @Midnight is that they've taken big steps towards eliminating any (idiotic) lingering doubts about women in comedy. And don't try to tell me those attitudes aren't still out there because I've lost "Likes" on the FB page arguing with people who tried to tell me women weren't as funny as men. Hey mouth breathers; watch a week of @Midnight and see if you feel the same way!... The HIMYM that focused on the Mother's backstory wasn't so good as to totally make up for how lousy this final season has been but it certainly made this final run of episodes worth sitting through. Heck, it made the last 8+ seasons worth sitting through, because we now fully understand that Ted's journey was to make himself worthy of such a wonderful woman. I can't remember the last time there was a better mix of actress and character than what Cristin Milioti has brought to the table; I mean, to simply not disappoint the audience after 8 years would have been tough enough but to surpass expectations, to turn the question from is she good enough for Ted to is Ted good enough for her, is an amazing accomplishment. A fantastic half hour that I will most certainly watch again before deleting…The third VERY strong episode of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD in a row, a run that should make anyone who gave up on the show while it was finding itself rethink that decision. If this is the quality level they are going to maintain, SHIELD will have a long and prosperous life…He's not likely to get nominated for any awards but Tuesday's Brooklyn Nine-Nine was the best evidence yet that Terry Crews is among the funniest people on TV, with an ability to handle all sorts of comedy (physical, word play, slow burn) with ease. Andy Samberg is the name and Andre Braugher is the legend but its Crews that truly holds Nine-Nine together…I've very much enjoyed the second half of The Fosters freshman season so far as it continues to be the best drama ABC Family has produced. Yes, it usually has one too many storylines going on but it is grounded in ways their other series are not, and the family vibe is genuine. Rosie O'Donnell has been a model of understatement in her role and some of the new characters at the group home qualify The Fosters as groundbreaking TV…

TV Pick Of The Week
For those of you out there the next two weeks will be painful as you are simply not into Olympic sports but tonight's opening ceremonies, which begin on NBC at 7.30pm, are the kind of spectacle you don't have to be a sports fan to appreciate. Every Olympics tries to outdo the one before, plus we'll get a (revisionist?) history lesson on Russia.

Don't miss the Opening Ceremonies of the 2014 Winter Olympics, tonight at 7:30 on NBC.
