So, how did CBS' new drama block do versus the Fox animated show premieres?

Nielsen Overnights (18-49)
Big premiere bumps for ‘Family Guy’ and ‘Once’
Fox series posts a 4.5 in 18-49s with 'Simpsons' crossover
By Toni Fitzgerald, Media Life Magazine - Sep. 29, 2014

Take note, other Big Five networks: Last night Fox and ABC proved that big event broadcasting still works.

Both networks saw surges for their signature Sunday shows with events that had been hyped for weeks leading up to their season premieres.

Fox’s “Family Guy” was the big winner on the night. A highly anticipated crossover with “The Simpsons” boosted “Guy” to its best numbers in four years, posting a 4.5 adults 18-49 rating for an hour-long episode at 9 p.m., according to Nielsen overnights.

That was the top scripted show of the night on broadcast and bettered last season’s premiere by 73 percent.

The entire Fox schedule performed well with a strong NFL lead-in at 7 p.m. The season premiere of “Simpsons” at 8 drew a 3.9, up 34 percent from last year and its best season debut in three years.

And “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” making its Sunday premiere after airing on Tuesdays last season, averaged a 2.6 at 8:30, its best rating since last year’s series bow.

Meanwhile, ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” soared to a nearly two-year high in its season premiere, posting a 3.4 at 8 p.m. The reason? The addition of characters from the wildly popular Disney animated movie “Frozen.”

The show surged 31 percent from last year’s premiere, and it hit series highs among teens 12-17 and kids 2-11, “Frozen’s” biggest fans.

The rest of ABC’s evening was mixed. At 9 p.m. “Resurrection’s” premiere drew a 2.2, its best rating since early April though down a tenth from what “Revenge” averaged in the hour the same night last year.

“Revenge” posted a 1.4 at 10 p.m., tying its best rating since March and finishing in a tie for second in the timeslot. But it marked a new season premiere low for the fourth-year show.

CBS’s lineup was delayed 15 minutes by NFL overrun in a number of markets, so ratings are not accurate. But based on what’s available, new drama “Madam Secretary” averaged a 1.4 at 8 p.m., off 30 percent from last week’s debut.

It held up better in total viewers, falling by only 14 percent to 12.66 million and finishing as the night’s No. 1 scripted show.

“Secretary’s” 9 p.m. lead-out “The Good Wife” fell a tenth from last week, to a 1.3, and at 10 p.m. the season premiere of “CSI” slid to a series low of 1.4 on its new night, though that was even to what “The Mentalist” averaged in last year’s premiere in the same timeslot.

Of course, as usual, NBC dominated the night with “Sunday Night Football.”

NBC led the night among 18-49s with a 6.1 average overnight rating and an 18 share. Fox was second at 4.9/14, ABC third at 2.1/6, CBS fourth at 1.3/4, Univision fifth at 0.8/2, and Telemundo sixth at 0.3/1.

As a reminder, all ratings are based on live-plus-same-day DVR playback, which includes shows replayed before 3 a.m. the night before. Seven-day DVR data won’t be available for several weeks. Forty-nine percent of Nielsen households have DVRs.

Also, ratings for NBC’s NFL coverage and CBS’s entire NFL-delayed lineup are approximate as fast nationals measure timeslot and not actual program data.

Fox started the night in the lead with a 7.1 at 7 p.m. for NFL overrun and “The OT,” followed by NBC with a 2.4 for “Football Night in America.” ABC was third with a 1.5 for a “Time” recap, CBS fourth with a 1.1 for “60 Minutes,” Univision fifth with a 0.5 for “Aqui y Ahora” and Telemundo sixth with a 0.4 for the end of the movie “Twilight Saga: New Moon.”

NBC took the lead at 8 p.m. with a 6.8 for NFL pregame and the start of “Sunday Night Football,” while ABC moved to second with a 3.4 for a new “Time.” Fox slipped to third with a 3.3 for “Simpsons” (3.9) and “Brooklyn” (2.6), CBS was fourth with a 1.4 for “Secretary,” Univision fifth with a 0.8 for “Va Por Ti,” and Telemundo sixth with a 0.4 for “Yo Soy el Artista.”

At 9 p.m. NBC was first with a 7.8 for football, with Fox second with a 4.5 for “Guy.” ABC was third with a 2.2 for “Resurrection,” CBS fourth with a 1.3 for “Wife,” Univision fifth with a 1.0 for more “Va Por Ti” and Telemundo sixth with a 0.3 for more “Artista.”

NBC was first again at 10 p.m. with a 7.2 for more football, while ABC and CBS tied for second at 1.4, ABC for “Revenge” and CBS for “CSI.” Univision was fourth with a 0.8 for “Sal y Pimienta” and Telemundo fifth with a 0.2 for “Suelta la Sopa Extra.”

Among households, NBC was first for the night with a 9.6 average overnight rating and a 16 share. CBS was second at 6.9/11, Fox third at 6.7/11, ABC fourth at 4.0/7, Univision fifth at 1.2/2, and Telemundo sixth at 0.4/1.

TV/Nielsen Notes
For ‘NCIS: Los Angeles,’ going it alone
Hit show moves to Monday night, away from the show it spun off of
By Louisa Ada Seltzer, Media Life Magazine - Sep. 29, 2014

It’s never easy to take off the training wheels, but for “NCIS: Los Angeles” it’s definitely time.

The drama premieres its sixth season tonight at 10 p.m. on CBS, a new night and time for the first “NCIS” spinoff.

Up until now, “LA” aired right after its parent show, “NCIS,” on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. It did extremely well there, too, averaging a 2.4 18-49 rating and 14.8 million total viewers last season, according to Nielsen.

It has long ranked as broadcast’s No. 2 drama in total viewers behind “NCIS,” and it regularly won its timeslot among 18-49s.

But CBS wanted to give “NCIS’s” latest spinoff, “NCIS: New Orleans,” strong support for its first season, and so it moved “LA” to Monday and put “Orleans” in the latter’s old Tuesday slot.

So far the plan has worked.

“Orleans” premiered to a solid 2.5 rating last week and 17.2 million total viewers, the latter the best for any new show this season.

CBS hopes that viewers will follow “LA” to Monday, which could solve another problem for the network. It struggled in the 10 p.m. Monday hour last season, with new dramas “Intelligence” and “Hostages” both drawing low ratings.

If “LA” can maintain most of its Tuesday audience in its new timeslot, the network won’t have any more worries about Mondays at 10.

Critic's Notes
Bianculli's Best Bets
By David Bianculli, TVWorthWatching.com - Sep. 29, 2014

THE BIG BANG THEORY
CBS, 8:00 p.m.

In this episode, Howard (Simon Helberg) gets an exciting invitation from left field – or, rather, from the infield. He’s invited, as an astronaut, to throw out the first pitch at a ball game. Which, for Howard, will take more than a little practice to pull off without embarrassment.

GOTHAM
Fox, 8:00 p.m.

Last week’s premiere episode of Gotham spent much of its time with Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor), the twisted little man who, in time, will reinvent himself as the villainous Penguin. This week, the focus is on young street stray Selina Kyle, who, in time, will become Catwoman – and who, in this young pre-costumed incarnation, is played by Camren Bicondova.

SLEEPY HOLLOW
Fox, 9:00 p.m. ET

What century is this, anyway? On Sleepy Hollow, not only do we have Ichabod Crane, demon hunter – bringing to life, in a more heroic and driven way, the character from Washington Irving’s classic short story – but this season, we have him teamed with none other than Benjamin Franklin, played by Timothy Busfield from thirtysomething.

THE 50 YEAR ARGUMENT
HBO, 9:00 p.m. ET

Finally! A workplace that looks like mine! This documentary, co-directed by Martin Scorsese and David Tedeschi, is an unapologetic love letter to The New York Review of Books on the provocative book review and essays publication’s golden anniversary. Robert Silvers, 84, is both the central subject and behind-the-scenes instigator of this new film, which is an inspirational salute to the power of ideas – especially ones that go against the norm or the grain. And in these days of paperless, faceless blog sites, it’s a joy to see the cluttered desks, rough print pages and everything else that makes the cramped, cluttered Review headquarters look like an office from a previous era.

THE BLACKLIST
NBC, 10:00 p.m. ET

Last week’s Season 2 premiere showed Red (James Spader) on the loose – but a newly introduced character, his ex-wife Naomi Hyland, captured by an especially ruthless bad guy. She hadn’t seen her ex in 20 years, but that didn’t stop the villains from grabbing her as leverage. And since she’s played by Mary-Louise Parker, we wish her well, because we want to see her trade lines with Spader. But for now, until Naomi is rescued, she’s sequestered far away from the Red zone.

With NCIS LA at 10:00 PM it now is up against Castle and the Blacklist. We like all 3 shows so it is DVR/OnDemand time to watch them all. Hope they all survive.

The company named names, plenty of them: Netflix, for complaining about interconnection plans it freely negotiated with Comcast;

I bet Netflix was just thrilled to negotiate freely to keep from having their product turned into total crap by the ever loving Comcast.

‘Star Wars Rebels’ Emulates the Trilogy of Old

“It’s a love-hate thing,” explained Tyler Blevins, a 22-year-old “Star Wars” addict who attended Comic-Con International in July wearing a full-body Stormtrooper costume. “We love Disney. But we don’t yet trust that they love us, the fans, and that this big global conglomerate truly understands the ‘Star Wars’ DNA.”

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/28/ar...elevision&_r=0
Yeah, and how was George Lucas doing with all that?

In all the years, he failed to give the fans what they really want: a proper release of the unaltered original Star Wars. Instead, he gave the world Jar Jar Binks and managed to make Darth Vader into the most miserable little spoiled brat in the universe.

Even Disney would have to work extra overtime to top that BS.

The fact is, based on what I've seen with Marvel, I'm certain - at the very least - they'll pull off something that manages to do the franchise justice. It may not be exactly what the fans are hoping for, but it reaally can't get any worse than where Lucas was taking it.

Then again, Star Wars fans aren't happy unless they're unhappy.
