Eventually, you'll need 10 different services all at least $6-$8 a month to watch everything.
The cable companies and satellite providers will eventually have to go to a true a la cart service if they hope to retain a portion of what they have now.

Having just watched Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, this line sticks in my mind, maybe because the crowd starts chanting it: "Two men enter, one man leaves."

Coming Sunday morning:
Hot Off the Press: Beyond Thunderdome

Nielsen Overnights (18-49)
Huge surge for Sweet Sixteen games
CBS and TBS games post a 9.0 in metered-market households
By Toni Fitzgerald, Media Life Magazine - Mar. 26, 2015

The Sweet Sixteen games continued the hot streak for March Madness on Thursday night.

The first four contests of the men’s NCAA basketball fourth round averaged a 9.0 household rating, according to Nielsen metered-market numbers.

That was up 30 percent from last year, when the contests averaged a 7.0. It also marked the best rating for this round since 1991, when the tournament switched to this TV format.

CBS and TBS averaged a 9.3 rating for the first window of games, from 7 to 10 p.m., which included a close contest between North Carolina and Wisconsin. That was up 39 percent from last year.

The 9:45 p.m. to 12:45 a.m. window posted an 8.9, growing 20 percent over last year and tying as the best since 1993.

The final four Sweet Sixteen games will air tonight.

Elsewhere on broadcast, ABC’s two Shonda Rhimes dramas posted the best non-basketball ratings, though they remain in a bit of a ratings funk against the tournament and with many colleges on spring break. Rhimes’ shows do well among college kids.

“Scandal” drew a 2.3 adults 18-49 rating at 9 p.m., according to overnights, while “Grey’s Anatomy” drew a 2.2 at 8 p.m.

At 10 p.m., new drama “American Crime” seems to have stabilized with a 1.2, even to last week.

NBC’s “The Blacklist” fell to a new series low with a 1.6 at 9 p.m. It continues to draw better numbers than anything else the network has aired in that slot the past two years, but it’s down from what it was drawing behind “The Voice” on Mondays.

Lead-out “The Slap” was even to last week with a 0.7. Earlier in the night, “Dateline: The Real Blacklist” posted a 1.0, an improvement on what “Slap” had been posting there earlier in the season before it moved to 10.

Fox’s “Bones” returned from a three-month hiatus slightly up from its most recent episode in December, posting a 1.3 at 8 p.m.

* * * *

Top show of the night in 18-49s

CBS’s “NCAA Tournament,” 3.3 rating from 10-11 p.m.

Top show of the night in 25-54s
CBS’s “NCAA Tournament,” 3.7 rating from 10-11 p.m.

Top show of the night in total viewers
CBS’s “NCAA Tournament,” 9.63 million from 10-11 p.m.

TV Notes
'Walking Dead' Companion Series Title Revealed
By Lesley Goldberg, The Hollywood Reporter's 'Live Feed' Blog - Mar. 26, 2015

It's official: AMC's The Walking Dead companion series has a title.

Executive producer Robert Kirkman announced Friday that the companion series, which starts as a prequel to the original, will be titled Fear The Walking Dead.

"IT'S OFFICIAL! The walking dead companion show on AMC is called FEAR THE WALKING DEAD! Expect more news very soon! #FearTheWalkingDead," he posted on Twitter.

The news comes as the companion went through development season — and was picked up to series and preemptively renewed for a second season — under code names including Cobalt and Fear The Walking Dead.
On March 9, AMC announced the series pickup and renewal for the then-untitled series.

Kirkman, who created The Walking Dead comic series, co-wrote the pilot with Dave Erickson (Sons of Anarchy). Kirkman and Erickson will exec produce alongside Walking Dead's Gale Anne Hurd and Dave Alpert. Erickson will serve as showrunner, and Adam Davidson will direct the pilot. Walking Dead VFX guru Greg Nicotero will also exec produce the series.

While AMC has been tight-lipped on the series' premise, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the drama is a prequel that takes place in Los Angeles at the onset of the zombie outbreak. AMC confirmed that the companion series is set in Los Angeles but revealed nothing more beyond that it will focus on new characters and storylines.

Cliff Curtis (Gang Related) stars as Sean Cabrera, a teacher who shares a son with his ex-wife. Sons of Anarchy's Kim Dickens is set to co-star as Nancy, a guidance counselor who works at the school with Sean and is seeing him romantically. Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) co-stars as Nancy's son Nick, who has battled a drug problem. And Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Woods) is will play Nancy's ambitious daughter, Ashley, who is the polar opposite of Nick and dreams of leaving L.A. for Berkeley when the apocalypse strikes.

Fear The Walking Dead will premiere in the "late summer" with season two set for 2016. An official premiere date has not yet been announced. The season five finale of the flagship series airs Sunday at 9 p.m.

Ellen DeGeneres Docuseries ‘First Dates’ Lands at NBC
By L.A. Ross, TheWrap.com - Mar. 26, 2015

NBC has ordered eight episodes of Ellen DeGeneres‘ new docuseries, “First Dates,” based on the British format.
The hour-long show will follow eight couples who meet for the first time and find out, along with the audience, whether they have enough chemistry for a second date.

The observational documentary series will begin production in July in Chicago. No premiere date is set.

“First Dates” is executive produced by Pam Healey and John Hesling for Shed Media, DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman for A Very Good Production, and Tim Carter for Twenty Twenty. Anthony Dominici also serves as executive producer.

“First Dates” follows the DeGeneres-produced “One Big Happy” at NBC, extending her long relationship with the network. The talk show host also has a pilot in consideration at NBC, but that has rolled into next season.

Bianculli's Best Bets
By David Bianculli, TVWorthWatching.com - Mar. 23, 2015

2015 MEN'S NCAA BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT
Various Networks, 7:00 p.m. ET

Last night, one of the No. 1 seeds, the favored Kentucky, trounced its opponent, West Virginia, almost to the point of involving the college equivalent of the mercy rule. The other No. 1 seed playing Thursday, Wisconsin, had a much tougher time of it – and, in fact, was behind coming into the closing minutes, when it dominated play at the end and emerged victoriously. So, for the record, did No. 3 seed Notre Dame, getting deeper into the NCAA tournament than it has in a long time, and No. 2 seed Arizona, beating Xavier. Tonight’s coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET on CBS, with South’s No. 2 Gonzaga facing the tournament’s only remaining double-digit seed, No. 11 UCLA. At 7:30 p.m. ET on TBS, East’s No. 4 Louisville faces No. 8 N.C. State. At 9:45 p.m. ET, South No. 1 seed Duke takes on No. 5 Utah on CBS, and the night’s fourth and final game, presented by TBS, starts just after 10 ET, with East’s No. 3 Oklahoma facing No. 7 Michigan State.

GRIMM
NBC, 8:00 p.m.

In tonight’s episode, most of the trouble comes from the women. Yes, in this particular case, they happen to be demon beasts and other supernaturally enhanced and possessed creatures – but still, I’m beginning to see a pattern. Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch), who used to be good, is only one of the ladies to turn bad tonight. I’m just saying…

KEVIN HART: LAUGH AT MY PAIN
Comedy Central, 8:00 p.m. ET

If you thought you couldn’t see Kevin Hart on TV this week any more than you have, think again. Here he is one more time, this time in a repeat of his 2011 standup comedy concert. Hart said recently that he crafts these shows as complete entities – sort of like albums – so see if you can discern the theme of this one. Bingo: He’s admitting to his fears, foibles, mistakes and traumas, the better to make you laugh at.

REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER
HBO, 10:00 p.m. ET

Tonight’s guests include Mike Huckabee, Barney Frank and Zachary Quinto.

VICE
CBS, 12:37 a.m. ET

Reporter Ben Anderson decides to take a tour to follow the European “cocaine trail” and how that illegal drug makes its way from the streets of Venezuela to the stark African desert terrain inhabited by Islamic extremists.
