Posted by Al Norton on 02.21.2014
News and thoughts on the Rock's new HBO series, Jimmy Fallon's first week hosting The Tonight Show, a season two premiere date for Orange is the New Black and more!
Hello friends; what's good? Another week, another crazy seven days of weather, including multiple snow storms, freezing rain, and then the expected highs in the 50's the next three days. The real highlight of the week was of course the start of spring training; all is right with the world when we know baseball is just around the corner!
We had such a great response to last week's giveaway that we are doing another, a HUGE animated comedy gift pack – Futurama Volume 8 on Blu-ray, Family Guy Volume 12 on DVD, and season 16 of The Simpsons on Blu-ray!!! WOW, even I am stunned, and this was my idea! Simply go to Al Norton's Two Tivos To Paradise on Facebook, click "Like" if you have not already, and then post "TTTP animates my life." One entry per person, must have a US or Canadian mailing address, and you're entered to win! Good luck!!!!
I was looking forward to Showtime's Penny Dreadful already but now that I've seen the full length trailer, I am counting the days…
Here's another look at the new season of Game of Thrones…
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the news.
I Didn't Know What I Was Waiting For And My Time Was Running Wild
Multiple networks announced lineup changes, premiere dates, and new series orders this week, and to break up the text I've got some musical highlights from the first week of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon…
*HBO has picked up a first season of Ballers, a new comedy starring and executive produced by Dwayne Johnson, focused on a group of current and former pro football players who live in Miami. The pilot was written by Steve Levinson, whose resume includes writing and/or producing for Entourage, Boardwalk Empire, How to Make it In America, and In Treatment. Mark Wahlberg is also executive producing. The cast includes Rob Cordrry, Omar Benson Miller, and Troy Garrity. Evan Reilly (Rescue Me, The Walking Dead, Heist) is the showrunner.
*CBS announced some changes to their Thursday night lineup as of 2/27 (the first post-Olympics Thursday), with The Crazy Ones and Two and a Half Men switching timeslots. When the Crazy Ones finishes its season in mid-April it will be replaced at 9:30 on Thursdays by Bad Teacher, an adaptation of the movie of the same name, featuring Ari Graynor, David Allen Grier, Kristin Davis, Ryan Hanson, and Sara Gilbert.
The network also announced that season three of Unforgettable would be getting an earlier-than-expected premiere; instead of launching in the summer (which they did with season two), it will begin airing Fridays at 8pm on April 4th, after Undercover Boss finishes up its season.
*Bravo has picked up a 13 episode first season of Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce, written by Marti Noxon (Buffy, Angel, Mad Men, Glee, Grey's Anatomy) and co-starring Janeane Garofalo and Beau Garrett, with Carrie Fisher and TTTP fave Paul Adelstein in the pilot (they may join the cast but it's not official as of yet). The show follows a self-help author - Edelstein - trying to navigate life after separating from her husband, news she's trying to keep hidden from her regular circle of friends. Premiering in 2015, this will be Bravo's first scripted series ever, with Noxon set to serve as showrunner.
*Syfy announced the winter/spring premiere plans today;
-Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge begins its first season on March 25th.
-Continuum's third season opens up on April 4th.
-The six episode final season of Warehouse 13 premieres on April 14th.
The network also announced a trio of Tuesday night specials (with the idea that with strong ratings/fan response they could turn into new series) - Carvers (3/4 - following two craftsman) My Big Fat Geek Wedding (3/11 - a couple who met online playing Final Fantasy), Foxy & Co. (3/18 - focused on former Face Off contestant Eric Fox).
* VH-1 has ordered a 10 episode first season of Naked Dating, a new reality show that finds participants going on dates where both they and their potential match are stripped bare, with the filming going on in a to-be-determined exotic location. The idea behind the show is that two people can really get to know each other when they are in a relaxed atmosphere away from the world. The show will be edited to follow the network's standards (as in, no true nudity - likely lots of blurring).
*A&E is developing The 36, a supernatural/mystical drama that's a take on a idea from Judaism about the Righteous 36, a group of thirty six people who have special powers and in some way control the fate of the world. This show would find the 36 serving as protectors of the earth against all the fallen angels that live among us, with the lead character's life turned upside down when he discovers he is one of the 36. The pilot is being written by brothers Charley & Vlas Parlapanides, who wrote the 2011 big screen movie Immortals
*Spike TV has optioned the non-fiction book The War at the Shore, which chronicles the battles between Donald Trump and Steve Wynn over the development of Atlantic City, and plans on turning it into a mini-series. Dana Brunetti (The Social Network, House of Cards) is executive producing for Kevin Spacey's Trigger Street Productions.
Get Your Motor Runnin', Head Out On The Highway
Jason Hervey's most famous on-camera role is obviously older brother Wayne Arnold on the classic coming of age comedy The Wonder Years but in his work as a producer he's had his hands on some popular series in the last 15 years, including Scott Baio is 45 and Single, Confession of a Teen Idol, Hardcore Pawn: Chicago, See Dad Run, and Discovery's highly rated The Devil's Ride, which is currently in its third season. We caught up with Jason via email this week to chat…
TTTP: What's the general process for figuring out which reality projects you are interested in producing and also, at the same time, which ones you think will be successful (because I would think sometimes those are two different groups)?
JH: The question I ask myself every time Bischoff Hervey Entertainment (BHE) is about to take on a new project is: "Is this interesting and where can we sell it?" If the answer is ‘yes, it's interesting' I can always muster up more than enough passion to work with our talented team to help get the project on its legs. The Devils Ride is great example of this. Eric and I each have a personal passion for motorcycles, riding my Harley through the country here in Nashville and I definitely have a lot of fun filming the show and it was easy to decide to take the project on.
TTTP: How did The Devil's Ride come to be?
JH: Based on our personal passions we were developing an MC themed docu-soap, and at around the same time I was approached by Steve Stockman, a fellow producer on the show, who had a relationship with the Laffing Devils. His idea was about the process of ‘prospecting' with their club, we took a few of the elements that made sense and merged it into the framework I felt was most interesting within a format that the viewers wanted to see and BHE went to work on it immediately. The truth is we knocked on a lot of doors for several years, however, the timing became right, when a personal friend new to Discovery reached and asked "What do you have right now that you are working on and that YOU like?" The rest is history.
TTTP: Is the coverage of the "feud" between Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter and the show simply proof that all publicity is good publicity?
JH: We're all fans of SOA and of course any publicity is good, however, we're not sure how Kurt thinks he knows so much about our show. He's never been to our set clearly and if he had been, during the taping of our current season, he'd know for sure that the guys on our show are beyond real and secretly, I think he's fan.
TTTP: Tell me something about Eric Bischoff you'd only know from working/being friends with him?
JH: He has a big heart and is quite the horseback rider.
TTTP: What was it like to sit ringside for that classic Sting - Flair match?
JH: "Still marking out." LOL.
TTTP: Were you as excited as all the fans when you heard the news that The Wonder Years would finally be getting a full series DVD release later this year?
JH: Absolutely excited to hear about the news that The Wonder Years will be released on DVD. These are timeless stories about growing up that aren't lost on any generation, so it will be nice for those who watched the show as they aired to share them with a new generation of kids, who are seemingly in need of just as much help as those who grew up watching the show. I've also been approached to do some extras for the DVD, so please stay tuned for more Wonder Years content!
TTTP: For someone who wouldn't think a reality show about motorcycle clubs would be their thing, what about the show might surprise them?
JH: The Devils Ride is more than just a motorcycle show, we do have brilliant amazing shots of the guys on their bikes, however it's really about the brotherhood of the club and seeing these guys sticking to each other through thick and thin. And that theme is universal - everyone needs a family and that's exactly what this show is about: family. It doesn't matter if they're lost on an island or riding bikes in San Diego.
The Devil's Ride airs Mondays at 10pm on Discovery.
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…
The network has ordered a pilot for Feed Me, a dark comedy about a dysfunctional family that runs a restaurant together, with Emmy & Golden Globe winner Mary Louise Parker in talks to star…Emmy winner Debra Messing (Will & Grace, Smash) will star in the hour long dramedy pilot The Mysteries of Laura, playing a homicide detective who is much better at her job than she is at raising her twins. The project is an adaptation of a popular Spanish TV series. Messing has received a combined 14 Emmy and Golden Globe nominations…Elisha Cuthbert became the last Happy Endings regular to sign on to a new series (or at least a pilot) today when she was announced as the co-star of One Big Happy, a comedy about a guy who agrees to have a baby with his lesbian best friend (Cuthbert) and shortly thereafter meets the girl of his dreams. Ellen DeGeneres is executive producing.
Emmy winner Michael Imperioli has signed to star in the comedy pilot Saint Francis, playing a Long Island cop with a wife and kids whose traditional lifestyle/values are challenged when his 29 year old single sister announces she is pregnant. Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) plays his wife…TTTP fave and Norty Award winner KaDee Strickland has joined Ryan Phillippe and Juliet Lewis in the cast of Secrets & Lies, an adaptation of an upcoming Australian series about a man (Phillippe) who discovers the body of a murdered child and becomes the prime suspect. Strickland will play his wife, with Lewis as the detective in charge of the investigation. While the project hasn't been given a series pick up yet, the deal was signed with a penalty (i.e. cash payment) if it doesn't make the air, so that combined with the cast means it's a lock you'll be seeing Secrets & Lies in the ABC lineup in 2014…Doctor Who alum Karen Gillian has been cast as the lead in the comedy pilot Selfie, playing a very social media-conscious woman who suffers a public humiliation and hires a marketing consultant to fix her image and improve her life. The show comes from Suburgatory creator Emily Kapnek, with the pilot set to be directed by Julie Ann Robinson, whose resume includes Weeds, Parks & Rec, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Big Love, Samantha Who, Pushing Daisies, and Grey's Anatomy along with the pilot for The Middle.
Alyson Hannigan has signed on as the female lead for Time with Family, the comedy pilot starring Tom Papa as a husband and Father who makes changes in his life so he can enjoy his family more. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are on board as executive producers… CBS has ordered a planted pilot for a CSI spinoff focused on a group of FBI agents fighting cyber-crime; written by CSI creator Anthony Zuiker, CSI showrunner Carol Mendelsohn, and former CSI: Miami showrunner Ann Donahue, the characters will be introduced via an episode of CSI this spring…
Oscar winner Terrence Howard has signed to star in the pilot Empire, a look at a family run hip hop music company from Lee Daniels and Danny Strong, who were the director and writer (respectively) of last year's Lee Daniel's The Butler (which Howard appeared in). Howard previously starred in Law & Order: LA and will appear in Fox's upcoming mini-series Wayward Pines. Daniels was nominated for an Oscar for directing Precious and Strong wrote both Game Change (winning an Emmy) and Recount (nominated for an Emmy)…Oscar winner Octavia Davis will make her series regular debut in Red Band Society, the story of a group of teenager living in a hospital due to various illnesses who all become close friends, with Davis playing the nurse who runs the ward. The show is an adaptation of a very popular Spanish series, with the script written by Margaret Nagle (Boardwalk Empire, the highly underrated Side Order of Life) and counts Steven Spielberg among the executive producers. While Fox has not technically given a first season order yet, it's expected the show will skip the traditional pilot stage and be on the schedule this fall…Jane Krakowski (30 Rock) will star in the pilot Dead Boss, playing a woman wrongly convicted of murdering her boss and relying on her mess of a sister to prove her innocence. The comedy is an adaptation of the BBC3 series of the same name, with the star and co-creator of the original Sharon Horgan on board as an executive producer. Patricia Breen (Suburgatory, Big Love, Frasier) wrote the script…Jada Pinkett Smith has joined the cast of Gotham, playing Fish Mooney, a ruthless and violent nightclub owner/mob boss who a not-yet-become-The-Penguin Oswald Cobblepot (played by Robin Lord Taylor) works for. Per the log line, Mooney has an almost psychic ability to read people, which comes in handy with all the changing alliances and backstabbing in the world of organized crime…Jon Heder will co-star with Jane Kaczmarek and David James Elliott in an untitled comedy from Ricky Blitt (Family Guy) and Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki. Heder plays a 30 something slacker who lives at home and who has to deal with is Mom (Kaczmarek) remarries a guy (Elliott) with three teenagers of his own.

But You Were Up To Your Old Tricks In Chapters Four Five And Six
Ratings Notes From The Last Seven Days…
NBC's coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympics won the night in all measures, up from Wednesday night but down from the corresponding Thursday in 2010...Surprisingly impressively, Rake matched last week's demos despite going up against the Winter Games...American Idol was the top non-Olympic performer of the night, down a bit from last week...
Not a good ratings night for NBC, with their coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympics hitting a low for these games, down 18% in total viewers and 16% in the demos from that night in 2010.
USA - Russia men's hockey game set a new ratings high for NBC Sports Network, topping Game 3 of last year's Stanley Cup finals…The night was down 15% from Friday, to be expected as the second Saturday night is traditionally the least watched of the games, but it was down 37% from that night in the 2010 games; even factoring in that those games from Vancouver will almost entirely live, which leads to higher ratings, it's still a big drop.
For the second week in a row The Walking Dead topped NBC's coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympics in the demos on Sunday night…
The final numbers are in and 11.3 million tuned in to The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, topping 9.7 that watched Conan O'Brien's debut (and easily topping Jay Leno's return to the show). In the demos Fallon's and O'Brien's opening hours were pretty much even… For the first time in a week, NBC's coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympics was up in totals AND demos from this same night in 2010...Not a good start for Star Crossed, which as of now appears to be the lowest rated scripted series premiere in The CW's history...Tying series lows were The Bachelor, Castle, Almost Human, Beauty and the Beast, and The Following - meaning every series that aired a new episode on broadcast TV (so the next time you complain about nothing to watch if you don't like the Olympics, that's why)… For a glass half full look at the numbers for Star Crossed, it was up 20+% in total viewers and 33% in the demos from what Hart of Dixie did in that spot last time out.
TUESDAY Killer Women's series finale fittingly dropped to a series low...NBC's coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympics easily won the night in totals and demos, down a major 21% in total viewers and 14% in the demos from Monday and down 11% from that night in 2010...American Idol matched last Thursdays numbers...
WEDNESDAY Super Fun Night went out on a new series low, down a whopping 31% from last week…NBC's coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympics was up from Tuesday but down from the corresponding night in 2010…Criminal Minds was down 20+% in total viewers and double digits in the demos…CSI actually matched its previous demos despite going up against the winter games…American Idol more or less matched the previous night…
All The Young Dudes, Carry The News
Industry News, Notes, and Hot Rumors…Netflix has given season two of Orange is the New Black a June 6th premiere date, with all 13 episodes available for viewing at midnight PT (3am, ET)… ABC Family has cancelled Ravenswood after one season…Nigel Lythgoe (So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol) is executive producing In the Spotlight, a reality competition series pilot for CBS. While changes have been made for the US version, the show is an adaptation of a Turkish show where contestants are on a circular rotating stage, each getting a set amount of time to sing in the spotlight before the audience eliminates one person each round. In the original version a celebrity panel of judges are used throughout as well… Dennis Lehane is writing an adaption of the book Elliot Ness: The Rise and Fall of An American Hero as a pilot for WGN America, with Emmy winner Michael Dinner (Justified, Chicago Hope, The Wonder Years) set to direct. Lehane work as an author include Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone, and Shutter Island, and he's written for The Wire and Boardwalk Empire as well... Jason Isaacs (Awake, Brotherhood) will star in Dig, the six episode USA mini-series from Tim Kring (Heroes), playing a FBI agent working in Jerusalem to solve a murder who uncovers a 2000 year old conspiracy for world domination. Isaacs also recently signed on for a role in NBC's upcoming Rosemary's Baby mini-series…Bethenny Frankel's daytime talk show Bethenny has been cancelled after one season…Marilu Henner, currently recurring on Brooklyn Nine Nine, has been cast in the possible recurring role of Sydney's Mom/Simon's ex-wife on The Crazy Ones. Look for her in mid-April…Emmy winner Wendell Pierce (Treme, The Wire, Suits, The Michael J Fox Show) has signed on for a recurring role on the upcoming season of Ray Donovan, joining new additions Hank Azaria and Sherilyn Fenn…Big changes for CBS' The NFL Today, with Tony Gonzalez in and Dan Marino & Shannon Sharpe out. Gonzalez' deal will also find him contributing to Showtime's Inside the NFL and CBS Sports Network's That Other Pregame Show…HBO has picked up a second season of the HIGHLY underrated comedy Getting On… Kal Penn is the first actor cast in Battle Creek, a new crime drama that is Vince Gilligan's first project since Breaking Bad ended earlier this year. The pilot was actually written by Gilligan years before Breaking Bad and while he will executive produce, showrunning duties will be handled by House creator David Shore, making this high profile project a little bit higher. CBS was so sold on this project that they gave it a direct-to-series order, skipping the traditional pilot stage… A&E has given Breaking Boston a March 4th premiere date; the new Mark Wahlberg executive produced reality series follows four women in their 20's trying to turn their lives around, both personally and professionally… TBS is developing The Weekly Awards, a pop-culture-week-in-review show hosted by comedian Jimmy Pardo and executive produced by Conan O'Brien. Pardo has been the warm up comedian for O'Brien since The Tonight Show and has a web series - The Pardo Report - about the behind scenes goings on at Conan. This new show, if picked up, would likely air on Fridays, which would give the channel late night programming on every weeknight.
Turns Out Not Where But Who You're With That Really Matters
The best thing I've watched this week…
A strong opening night The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, showcasing the host's earnestness as well as his overall comic sensibilities. Highlights included the new opening (directed by Spike Lee), Tonight Show Superlatives, and of course the evolution of hip hop dancing with Will Smith. The celebs showing off to pay up the $100 for losing their bet was a decent way to shoehorn the obligatory parade of famous folks that comes with the a premiere/finale these days, with Stephen Colbert's "welcome to 11:30, bitch!" a nice payoff. Overall a nice start to the new era of The Tonight Show…
Hey, if you don't like Jimmy Fallon that's fine by me but some of the negative stuff I saw on social media on Tuesday was just silly, complaining about the opening part of his monologue by saying it was too much rah-rah about him and his family and such and not enough laughs. People, it was the FIRST episode; do you think he's going to that EVERY night? We seem to in such a huge rush to be different - to lead the backlash - that we don't just give something time to be. There is no award for being the first to crap on something so stop wasting your time trying. Again, like or not like whatever you want but let's not be in such a rush, ok?
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…One of my constant refrains in my praise for Raising Hope is that they get that their viewers watch other shows and that the audience likes it when the characters on screen love TV as much as they do, and never was this more evident than in the Road to Natesville episode (aka the Grocery Games); The Supermarket Channel was a stroke of genius, as was their programming, with options like Sample Ladies After Dark, Stocking with the Stars, and Tyler Perry's I Ain't Got No Coupon. Also, you can't beat a line like, "I'm sick of getting my glory piece by piece; I want my glory whole!" To be honest, this season of Raising Hope has had issues in that Jimmy, Sabrina, and Hope have been supporting characters at best, with Virginia and Burt being front and center. That's not a bad thing in that Martha Plimpton and Garret Dillahunt are fantastic in their roles but it does make it a different show than the first three seasons. But I don't want to get away from my main point, which is that The Road to Natesville episode joins their brilliant Modern Family homage and so many great Law & Order references as evidence that the show truly gets its audience…Not a great week for Randy Jackson on American Idol, who offered up incredibly generic advice to the contestants - telling them they had to give it their all and sing their best doesn't qualify as anything they didn't already know. It certainly seemed like he had never heard/seen them sing before, which if true is just a total waste because he has unique insight into what it takes to stand out on Idol and a little show prep would have gone a long way. I can appreciate the producers need to change things up a bit but too many good singers didn't even get to the point where they could open their mouths last night before being eliminated… I put up a relatively positive post about The Following on our FB page on Sunday and get rewarded with a huge return to Ryan Hardy School of Bad Decision Making the next night. If you shoot a bad guy, TAKE HIS GUN, especially when it's a big automatic weapon. If your life is in danger, CALL FOR HELP, even if it means letting the FBI know about your secret investigation. It may sound funny but I don't want to blame the characters for the horrible writing. Also, Monday's episode had a couple of cringe worthy/truly fraked up moments…I am fully caught up on Arrow and loving every minute, although at times wishing I had a dry erase board I could use to keep track of recurring evil characters and various alliances…Inside Comedy continues to be the best show on TV that not enough people are watching; this should be required viewing for anyone with an interest in comedy or even the last 30 – 50 years of the entertainment industry. Funny, entertaining, and informative – this is THE stuff…
TV Pick Of The Week
I've been raving about the About a Boy pilot since last spring, going on about how much I laughed and how much it endeared itself to me in just 22 minutes, and now that I've seen episodes two and three I am thrilled to tell you they do not disappoint, with no letdown at all from the high quality of the pilot. After three episodes I'm more than comfortable calling it one of the best/most charming comedies on TV.
Don't miss the series premiere of About A Boy, Saturday at 10:30 on NBC, followed by episode two in its regular Tuesday at 9pm timeslot.
Hope You Need My Love, Babe, Just Like I Need You
Other noteworthy programming from the coming week…
*The second – and final – season of Ripper Street begins Saturday at 9pm on BBC America…
*The current season of Downtown Abbey comes to a close Sunday at 9pm.
*Growing Up Fisher (special premiere day/time of Sunday at 10:38pm, followed by regular episode on Tuesday at 9:30pm) is the other NBC comedy premiering this week and while it's not as funny/good as About a Boy, it still has a LOT of charm going for it and could easily turn into something very, very good…
*Monday is a big night for reality show premieres; The Voice returns with a new season at 8pm on NBC (LOVE those blind auditions!!!), the new season of RuPaul's Drag Race kicks off at 9pm on Logo, and the new series Private Lives of Nashville Wives begins its run at 10pm on TNT.
*Wayne Brady hosts The BET Honors this Monday at 9pm.
*The Seth Myers era of Late Night begins Monday (technically Tuesday) at 12:35am, with Amy Poehler and Vice-President Joe Biden the first guests.
*I haven't seen the Mind Games (Tuesday, 10pm, ABC) pilot so I don't know if it's actually any good but considering it comes from the guy who created Lone Star and Awake, I think it could be…And I think it will likely get cancelled after one season…
*I don't know if I am fully sold on Mixology (Wednesday, 9pm, ABC) just yet but I know the series premiere has enough going for it that I will give it a few weeks to find itself…
*The Americans is back for season two this Wednesday at 10pm on FX.
*SundanceTV's VERY interesting looking The Red Road premieres Thursday at 10pm…
