Another series high for NBC’s ‘This Is Us’
The tearjerker drama draws 11 million total viewers, up 18 percent
By Toni Fitzgerald, Media Life Magazine - Mar. 8, 2017

NBC’s “This Is Us” rose to another series high Tuesday night, assisted by a healthy lead-in from “The Voice.”

The new drama, which has already been renewed for seasons two and three, averaged 11 million total viewers at 9 p.m., according to Nielsen overnights, a new best. That was also up 18 percent over its most recent episode two weeks ago.

Among adults 18-49, the show averaged a 2.9, its second-best rating ever.

With those numbers, it became NBC’s best in-season performance in the timeslot with scripted programming in 10 years. (“Us” posted its series high in 18-49s, a 3.0, in a special 10 p.m. airing earlier this year.)

“Us” was the night’s highest-rated program in the demo, topping “Voice’s” 2.6. But “Voice” drew more viewers, with 11.5 million.

NBC also continued to give new drama “Chicago Justice” a big push, slotting it in at 10 p.m. for a special episode, which averaged a 1.3 in the demo. It won the timeslot. “Justice” usually airs Sunday nights.

Elsewhere Tuesday, CBS’s “NCIS” was the night’s top show in total viewers with just over 14 million, and it posted a 1.6 in the demo, equal to its last episode.

ABC’s “The Middle” and “American Housewife” were steady, each with a 1.4.

In late night, CBS’s surging “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” hit its best overnight since September 2015, when Colbert took over as host. He averaged a 2.9 metered-market household rating, up 4 percent from last week, opposite a repeat of “The Tonight Show” on NBC.

“The Late Late Show with James Corden” drew a 1.5, equaling its best since February of last year.

TV/Nielsen Notes (Broadcast)
For ‘The Catch,’ a big shift in focus to romance
Gone is the 'case of the week' aspect of the ABC drama, back for season two

Let’s be honest: If “The Catch” were produced by anyone other than MVP super producer Shonda Rhimes, the show would have been canceled last season.

But Rhimes’ name carries a huge amount of weight at ABC, and so the drama returns tonight at 10 p.m. for a second season, with a new focus and new hopes for better ratings.

“Catch” follows Alice, a private investigator who gets played by a slick con man she spent all of last season trying to nab. In season one, in addition to Alice tracking her former fiancé, Benjamin, she also dealt with a case of the week she was trying to solve.

Season two hits the reset button.

The format shifts from mystery to romantic comedy, with more emphasis on the star-crossed lovers at the center of the show, played by Mireille Enos and Peter Krause.

The hope is that the lighter vibe will attract more viewers, after season one struggled.

“Catch” averaged just a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating, according to Nielsen live-plus-same-day-DVR-playback numbers. That made it one of the lowest-rated programs on any network to get a second season.

It also makes it a weak link in ABC’s otherwise strong Thursday lineup, which features two other Rhimes shows, “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal.”

Billions renewed for season 3 on Showtime
By Chancellor Agard, EW.com - Mar. 8, 2017

Billions has been picked up for a third season, Showtime announced Wednesday.

The hit drama, which is now in its second season, chronicles the ongoing battle between dogged U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) and crooked billionaire Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis). The show’s second season made history by introducing television’s first gender-nonbinary character in Asia Kate Dillon’s Taylor, an exceptionally bright intern who works for Axelrod.

According to the network, the show’s second 2 premiered was the biggest sophomore opening since Homeland, and the show’s most recent telecast was up 13 percent from the premiere, making it the best telecast of the season.

“Billions continues to be a show on the rise, growing not only in audience, but in critical buzz and cultural relevance,” said Showtime president and CEO David Nevins in a press release. “It offers a unique mix of pure entertainment with sly commentary on our current have/have-not economy. Season 2 is off to a tremendous start and has only whetted our audience’s appetite for what will come in season three.”

Billions – which also stars Maggie Siff and Malin Åkerman — airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on Showtime.

Nielsen/Technology Notes
Nielsen Finds Smart TVs, Streaming Devices Prevalent
By Jon Lafayette, Broadcasting & Cable - Mar. 8, 2017

A new analysis by Nielsen found that nearly 29% of U.S. homes have smart TVs and 23% of U.S. TV homes own a streaming device.

Combined with 80% of households having broadband internet, a large number of consumers are streaming video content and cutting the cord with traditional pay-TV distributors.

“The penetration of these devices is increasing as is the time spent using them. This combination is having a meaningful impact on how people view and engage with content on the TV set, and consequently is changing the ways in which media companies provide services,” Nielsen said.

Nielsen says the amount of time people are spending with connected TV is increasing. It found that 21 million homes used a connected device an average of 15 days a month. On the days those devices are used, they spend more than 3½ hours watching.

Smart TVs are being used 20 days per month, with more than 2 hours of usage per day.

The most popular streaming devices were Roku and Apple TV, followed by Amazon Fire TV and Chromecast. Almost 11% of homes have streaming players from other brands or PCs, tablets or smartphones connected to their sets.

‘The Good Fight’ Creators Take on NBC’s ‘SVU’ Donald Trump Episode
By Daniel Holoway, Variety.com - Mar. 8, 2017

Sunday’s episode of “The Good Fight” is a ripped-from-the-headlines episode of television about a ripped-from-the-headlines episode of television.

The newest installment of CBS All Access’ legal drama features the law firm at the show’s center agreeing to represent a television writer being sued by the network whose show he used to write on — “one of those Chicago shows,” as Cush Jumbo’s character tells Christine Baranski’s. The writer penned an episode about a thinly veiled version of Donald Trump caught in a sexual-assault scandal. But after Trump’s election as president, the unnamed (and fictional) network delayed the episode not once, but twice, with no apparent plan to actually air it.

In the real world, that is precisely what happened to a still-unseen installment of NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU.” NBC has yet to schedule an episode, shot before November’s presidential election, in which Gary Cole played a Trump-esque political aspirant who becomes swamped in sexual-assault allegations. NBC bumped the episode from its original October air date when it appeared that it would conflict with Fox’s highly rated World Series telecast. After the election, it was bumped again from its new November air date; no date has yet been set, and it is unclear at this point whether the episode will ever air. (As “SVU” star Ice-T told Vanity Fair this week, “I think they just got rid of it. I don’t know if they burned the sh-t or whatever.”)

“It wasn’t inspired by the episode — we haven’t seen it,” Robert King said of the “SVU” episode. “It was inspired by the fact that they hadn’t put it on the air yet and the subject matter is so provocative. And the fact that it was delayed not once, but twice.”

In “The Good Fight” episode, “Requiem for an Airdate,” showrunners Robert and Michelle King take plenty of fictional liberties. In their version of events, the writer posts the episode online as a form of protest, then get slapped with a lawsuit by the network. The writer’s lawyers — played by Jumbo and Delroy Lindo — argue that the network bowed to fear that the Trump administration would use the FCC as a tool to punish the network. Later, that argument is given credence when Trump tweets about the case, congratulating the network for standing up to the writer.

Still in its first season, “The Good Fight” has made regular reference to Trump. The Kings rewrote scenes from the pilot of the series, a spinoff of long-running CBS drama “The Good Wife,” after Trump was elected.

“We didn’t really feel that we were taking shots at NBC,” Michelle King said. “It was very much a generic network and the fear was that any network or entertainment conglomerate could end up being frightened by this administration.”

Spokespersons for NBC and “SVU” creator Dick Wolf declined to comment for this story. The Kings said that they did not reach out to Wolf or NBC to discuss the storyline.

They also did not talk to Gary Cole about it. In a further meta twist, Cole, who guest-starred as the Trump-like figure in the “SVU” episode, also appears in “Requiem for an Airdate.” Cole reprises his role as Kurt McVeigh from “The Good Wife,” though he does not appear in any scenes related to the “SVU”-inspired storyline.

“We didn’t have Gary on set the day those other things were filming, but we were aware of it at the time,” Michelle King said, adding that she and Robert knew that they wanted Cole’s character to appear at some point in the season, and it just happened to occur in the same episode as the “SVU”-inspired storyline. “When it seemed as though it was going to happen that way, it made us smile.”

Cutting the cord could cost as much as cable
By Jefferson Graham, USA Today - Mar. 8, 2017

LOS ANGELES - It seems that barely a day goes by without yet another announcement about a new entertainment streaming service, which begs the question: At what point do we start spending more dollars on streaming than cable TV?

The streaming services were supposed to be an on-demand, low-cost answer to all those hundreds of channels that we pay for but rarely watch on cable TV.

In our 1,000-channel universes, the average viewer only tunes into 17, according to surveys.

So if we could ditch that monthly $100-plus cable subscription for a streaming service or two, wouldn’t that be a better deal?

Been saying this for a couple of years now. Unless you're willing to give up something, you'll spend as much money, or more, trying to get all that you want.

Critic's Notes
13 TV Shows to Watch If You Miss Buffy the Vampire Slayer
By Jackson McHenry, Vulture.com (New York Magazine) - Mar. 8, 2017

In every generation there is a show like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which can alone reshape the television landscape, inspire dozens of imitators — and also fight against the forces of darkness. When it debuted in 1997, Buffy made TV more quippy and more serialized, while also cementing the template for a certain kind of hard-nosed female protagonist. Twenty years later, there is no one clear successor to Buffy, but a whole lot of shows share parts of its DNA, from its tropes and its approach to mythology to its offbeat sense of humor. A complete taxonomy of its TV genealogy would be incomplete without the phrase “all the shows,” but for those Buffy fans who are looking to fill that Slayer-sized hole in their hearts, we present a collection of shows that may satisfy your craving.

For grown-ups who’d like to hear swears, watch The Magicians
After a wobbly first season, Syfy’s The Magicians (based on the books by Lev Grossman) has gotten a better sense of itself in its second. The show follows a group of 20-somethings who find themselves in charge of a magical Narnia-like land while attending a Hogwarts-like magic college. The Magicians has all Buffy’s taste for confused stuttering by immature people dealing with immense power, alongside some compelling season-long mysteries, studded with a bunch drugs, sex, and foul language.

Season two is airing on SyFy. Season one is on Netflix.

For vigilante justice, watch Sweet/Vicious
After teaming up to take down a college rapist, the two lead characters of MTV’s Sweet/Vicious end up singing along to “Defying Gravity” in the car. The prim sorority sister and stoner computer hacker make for quite a mismatched duo, and they start a campaign against sexual assailants at their school. Buffy never quite figured out how to make college story lines work (bless Riley’s heart), but if it had, it might have looked like this.

Season one is available through MTV.

For a Scooby Gang on an adventure, watch Timeless
Few shows come with as much old-fashioned fun as NBC’s Timeless, which traverses through American history with the gee-whiz wonder of the Magic Tree House books, while packing in a nifty Alias-style conspiracy plot. The show’s band of heroes work together in “time team,” which is exactly as dorky and winsome as it sounds.

Season one is available on Hulu.

For old-school WB vibes, watch Supernatural
Given the mark Buffy left on the WB (and then on UPN), it stands to reason that this list would include a lot of CW shows. First up: Supernatural, which survived the leap between networks and is still chugging along. No need to commit to the show’s very long run, but if you’re in the mood for quips, demons, and the constant threat of the end of the world, try sampling an episode or two.

Season 12 is airing on the CW. Seasons 1–11 are on Netflix.

For a whole lot of vampires, watch Vampire Diaries
Do you wish that the debates between Spike and Angel formed the basis for a whole TV show? The Vampire Diaries is about to finish its run, which is too bad, but hey, Nina Dobrev is coming back somehow.

Season one is airing on The CW. Seasons 1–7 are on Netflix.

For metaphorical mysteries, watch iZombie
In the years since Buffy, many shows have picked up on the show’s serialized aspects — with seasons that revolve around a defeating Big Bad, for instance — but few have matched the show’s ability to turn out effective, interesting episodes week after week. Enter iZombie, in which a medical resident named Olivia gets turned into a zombie and helps the police solve crimes by eating the brains of victims in the morgue. In doing so, Olivia takes on the personality of whomever she’s eating, learning a lesson or two about life in the process.

Seasons one and two are on Netflix.

For teen drama with a touch of the surreal, watch Riverdale
The CW’s hard-abbed, pouty-lipped Archie adaptation is most obviously the descendant of teen dramas like Gossip Girl, Dawson’s Creek, and 90210, and, yes, supernatural fare like Twin Peaks. But if Riverdale’s leads act like students at Constance Billard, they talk like kids from Sunnydale High, with dialogue full of pop-culture jokes and callbacks that would make viewers whose primary language is Buffy Speak feel right at home.

Season one is airing on the CW.

For a heroine with heart, watch Jane the Virgin
It doesn’t have vampires, demons, or magic of any sort, so Jane the Virgin is superficially the least Buffy-like show on this list. But if you’re looking for a show with a complex female lead and a habit of using genre conventions to access emotional depth, Jane is Buffy’s clear successor. For what it’s worth, Gina Rodriguez also has a Sarah Michelle Gellar–level ability to cry on command.

Season three is airing on the CW. Seasons one and two are on Netflix.

If you love “Once More With Feeling,” watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
The obvious comparisons: Buffy pulled off a musical episode. The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is a musical show. Beyond the show tunes, however, both series tap into heady themes — mental illness, misogyny, boob weight — underneath shiny, carefree surfaces. We can’t wait for the inevitable Crazy-Ex episode where Rebecca convinces herself she can hunt down vampires.

Seasons one and two are available on Netflix.

For quips and crime fighting, watch Supergirl
If you’re looking for another show about a badass woman who’s also trying to figure out her ordinary life, look no further. The CW’s Supergirl infuses rom-com tropes with various heroic capers, and in its second season, it’s also leaned into a well-thought coming-out story.

Season two is airing on the CW. Season one is available on Netflix.

For dark and soapy shenanigans, watch Pretty Little Liars
Murder! Intrigue! Teens! If you condensed all the capital-D dramatic aspects of Buffy into a single show, you’d get something as chaotic and delicious as Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars. Sure, nobody on PLL has been banished to hell, but just you wait.

Season seven is airing on Freeform. Seasons 1–6 are available on Netflix.

For a British spin on things, watch Crazyhead
Hailing from Britain’s E4 and now on Netflix, Crazyhead teams a pair of mismatched “seers” who fight demons no one else can see. Think Buffy mixed with Misfits — Howard Overman, the creator of that show, also created this one. Here’s a taste of Crazyhead’s raucous sense of humor: The only way to kill a demon is to stick a pole straight up his ass.

Season one is available on Netflix.

If you secretly prefer Angel, watch The Leftovers
While Buffy remained fairly optimistic about human endeavor, its noirish spinoff Angel hypothesized that life is futile battle against the forces of darkness, made only meaningful through your decision to continue fighting. If you vibed with that idea, watch HBO’s stunningly grim The Leftovers, and despair.

Seasons one and two are available on HBO GO.

Gervais will exec produce and ask the kids the questions.

"When I'm stumped, I turn to Google and my kids. I had no idea there was a television show in that, but now that there is, I'm thrilled to be a part of it," Savage said.

Noted ABC senior vp alternative Robert Mills: "Fed Savage has had a significant cultural impact in television throughout his career and we are thrilled to have him be our host."

Savage, who has an overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television and next directs NBC's untitled Kourtney Kang comedy pilot, is repped by WME. His acting credits include Fox's short-lived comedy The Grinder and feature The Princess Bride.

The new game show is produced by Gervais as well as Banjay Studios North America's David Goldberg, Caroline Baumgard and Jeff Krask. Production begins next week in Los Angeles.

RadioShack files for bankruptcy a second time
By Mike Snider, USA Today - Mar. 9, 2017

Electronics retailer RadioShack has filed for its second bankruptcy in two years and will close about 200 of its 1,500 stores.

The Fort Worth, Tex.-based company previously filed for bankruptcy in 2015. Since then, General Wireless, a joint venture of hedge fund Standard General and Sprint, acquired the chain and ran 1,700 stores.

General Wireless announced Thursday that it had entered a Chapter 11 filing in the U.S Bankruptcy Court in Delaware.

RadioShack is closing about 200 stores and is evaluating options on the remaining 1,300, the company said. Stores remain open for business, as does its website RadioShack.com, which promoted a clearance sale on its home page.

The first Radio Shack store opened in Boston in 1921 ham radios and other radio equipment, according to Twice Magazine's "96 Years of RadioShack History."

Over the years, RadioShack established itself as a neighborhood destination for loudspeakers, mobile phones, satellite TV, batteries and toys. It also sold the first mass-marketed, fully-assembled PC, the TRS-80, for which Bill Gates once wrote the operating system.

As recently as 2013 sales, the company was the eighth-largest consumer electronics dealer, according to Twice.

By 2014, RadioShack was losing $200 million annually in the mobility business alone, according to the bankruptcy filing. The company has been run as a privately-held company since the 2015 bankruptcy.

“Over the course of the past two years, our talented, dedicated team has worked relentlessly in an effort to revitalize the Company and the RadioShack brand, while providing outstanding service to our customers. We greatly appreciate their hard work and dedication," said RadioShack CEO and President Dene Rogers in a statement.

Last year, RadioShack reduced operating expenses by 23% while increase gross profit by 8%, with the help of partner Sprint, which managed wireless sales at the stores, Rogers said. The chain sold more than one million RadioShack headphones and speakers in the U.S., while also adding FedEx services in 140 stores.

"However, for a number of reasons, most notably the surprisingly poor performance of mobility sales, especially over recent months, we have concluded that the Chapter 11 process represents the best path forward for the Company," Rogers said. "We will continue to work with our advisors and stakeholders to preserve as many jobs as possible while maximizing value for our creditors.”

Telemundo actors vote overwhelmingly to join SAG-AFTRA
By David Ng, Los Angeles Times' 'Company Town' Blog - Mar. 8, 2017

Actors at the Spanish-language TV network Telemundo have overwhelmingly voted to unionize with SAG-AFTRA, bringing to a close a protracted dispute between Hollywood’s largest union and NBCUniversal, which owns the network.

SAG-AFTRA said Wednesday that 81% of eligible voters chose to unionize in a balloting process that began Feb. 7 and lasted four weeks.

Miami-based Telemundo, which was acquired by NBCUniversal in 2001, is the largest employer of Spanish-language performers in the United States, providing work for hundreds of actors on its programs.

The vote marks a victory for SAG-AFTRA, which has been trying for years to extend union benefits to actors who work on the network’s popular shows.

“This is a historic moment,” said Gabrielle Carteris, president of SAG-AFTRA, in an interview. “Those performers deserve to have protection.”

Carteris said the vote demonstrated the power of SAG-AFTRA, which formed in 2012 with the merger of two rival unions and represents about 160,000 individuals.

The union said that a total of 124 individuals submitted anonymous mail-in ballots, with 91 voting in favor of the measure and 21 against it. Twelve ballots were challenged and weren’t counted.

The vote was administered by the National Labor Relations Board, which chose the 124 participants based on the amount of time actors have worked on telenovela dramas and other shows.

In the weeks ahead, SAG-AFTRA is expected to sit down with Telemundo to hammer out a collective bargaining contract.

The contract is intended to primarily cover telenovela performers, including actors, guest stars, dancers and stunt workers, according to Susan Davis, a lawyer who represents the union.

Among the points of negotiation will be benefits, overtime pay and residual payments. “We have every reason to be optimistic,” said Davis.

A Telemundo spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday that “while we are disappointed with this result, we remain committed to all of our employees and will move forward with the negotiation process after the election results have been certified by the NLRB.”

The spokesperson added: “We continue to be dedicated to making Telemundo a great place to work and to Telemundo’s long-term success.”

SAG-AFTRA has asserted that Telemundo pays its performers half of what English-language actors earn on other NBCUniversal-owned networks, and that Telemundo doesn't provide its telenovela actors with healthcare, contribute to their pensions or pay standard overtime or residuals.

NBCUniversal has stated that Telemundo would start offering healthcare and retirement benefits to performers starting in 2017, but declined to elaborate.

SAG-AFTRA began its fight with NBCUniversal about 15 years ago and has kept up the pressure as Telemundo has grown in popularity. The union has argued that NBCUniversal maintains a double standard by allowing its English-language performers to unionize while refusing the same right to Spanish-speaking actors.

Last year, the union produced a commercial blasting NBCUniversal. The company refused to air the Spanish-language spot during Telemundo’s live broadcast of its popular "Premios Tu Mundo" awards show. Telemundo competes with Univision Communications for Spanish-speaking viewers in the United States. But unlike Telemundo, Univision doesn't produce original scripted dramatic content in the United States, relying instead on a program licensing agreement with Grupo Televisa, with the work covered by the Mexican actors union ANDA.

The recent Telemundo vote means more financial security and power for actors, said Pablo Azar, who has appeared in numerous series on the network, including the recent “La Fan.”

“We have a voice now,” said the 34-year-old Mexico-born actor who resides in Miami. “We can actually decide how we want our future to be.”

‘The Americans’ Ratings Fall From 2016 To Lowest Season Debut Ever
By Dominic Patten, Deadline.com - Mar. 8, 2017

The return of The Americans last night on FX for its Season 5 debut has brought a chill to the Cold War set spy family drama. Now on a Tuesday for the first time at 10 PM, the Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields EP’d show hit a season debut low with 930,000 total viewers and a 0.2 rating among adults 18-49.

The 71-minute airing was down 33% in the key demo from the Season 4 opener last year and 16% in overall audience.

The March 16, 2016 Season 4 premiere was the previous low for the Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell starring show. The Wednesday debut last year snared 1.113 million viewers and an 18-49 rating of 0.3.

In better news statswise, last night’s “Amber Waves” episode was up 21% in viewers from the Season 4 “Persona Non Grata” finale of June 8, 2016. Among other offerings on TV, that competitive night saw Game 3 of the 2016 NBA Finals on ABC with the Cleveland Cavaliers coming back to beat the Golden State Warriors 120-90 in Ohio after losing the first two games in California.

For FX, such live + same day numbers aren’t going to make anyone happy but their true emphasis is on delayed viewing in Live + 3 and more, where the acclaimed Americans has seen strong increases the past few seasons week after week.

We should see those ratings by early next week.

Real answers: Why people are cutting the cord
Price is a factor, of course, but not the only one for dropping cable
By Toni Fitzgerald, Media Life Magazine - Mar. 9, 2017

It’s clear cord cutting is happening.

Everyone assumes it’s a money thing, and certainly some people are motivated by a desire to slash their household expenses.

But there are other reasons behind the decision to eliminate pay TV services, and a new survey by TiVo explores those motivations.

The survey, one done quarterly by the DVR service of people throughout the United States and Canada, found that 17 percent of respondents did not subscribe to pay TV, and a fifth of that number had eliminated it within the past year.

The big question—why?

Most people who had cut the cord cited the price of pay TV.

But they also mentioned other reasons. Another was the availability of streaming services such as Hulu, Amazon and Netflix. If you already subscribe to those services, you don’t really need cable if you’re just looking for content.

One other top reason given by respondents for dropping pay TV: They no longer felt any need for it. A surprising number said they were fine with using an antenna to receive broadcast TV channels and didn’t feel the need for the additional channels cable had to offer.

Too many channels?

That gets to an interesting issue in the whole cord cutting movement—the huge number of channels forced on subscribers by most cable TV plans.

According to TiVo’s survey, 18 channels would be the optimal cable TV package for most respondents.

Yet subscribers to cable get an average 189 channels, according to Nielsen. That means they’re paying for more than 150 networks they don’t really want and don’t really watch.

Indeed, while the price of the average cable bill rose above $100 per month last year, according to Leichtman Research Group, respondents to TiVo’s survey said they’d ideally pay $25 a month for the 18 channels they’d actually watch.

Skinny bundles have emerged as a way to fight cord cutting over the past couple years. These offer fewer cable channels at a lower price.

The focus has been largely on price for those packages, but perhaps cable providers should also be noting the fact that one draw of skinny bundles is not just the lower price but the desire to eliminate the overwhelming number of channels.

That well could be an argument for subscribing to upcoming cable packages from Hulu and YouTube, which pare back the number of channels available.

While this is true, I do notice that with some streaming services you also need to pay for a higher package if it has a must-watch channel for you. Take Sling for instance. I would want both Syfy and ESPN. In order to get both I need the Orange and Blue package which is $40 and still has channels I would never watch. The other channels that I consider to be must-haves for me are all on separate add-on's, which would drive the price up to almost cable-bill status and I would still be left with channels I'd never tune into.

13 TV Shows to Watch If You Miss Buffy the Vampire Slayer

If you secretly prefer Angel, watch The Leftovers
While Buffy remained fairly optimistic about human endeavor, its noirish spinoff Angel hypothesized that life is futile battle against the forces of darkness, made only meaningful through your decision to continue fighting. If you vibed with that idea, watch HBO’s stunningly grim The Leftovers, and despair.
But if you like Fun - as Angel was a lot of the time - then don't watch The Leftovers.

Feels like the writer only watched the finale of Angel because in the episodes I saw I don't recall muppet fights, Joss Whedon dancing in green makeup in a parallel universe or any jokes in The Leftovers.

Quote:
If you love “Once More With Feeling,” watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
The obvious comparisons: Buffy pulled off a musical episode. The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is a musical show. Beyond the show tunes, however, both series tap into heady themes — mental illness, misogyny, boob weight — underneath shiny, carefree surfaces. We can’t wait for the inevitable Crazy-Ex episode where Rebecca convinces herself she can hunt down vampires.
Vampires featured in the first episode so that may have been worth mentioning.

I don't think the writer watched most of the shows in this article.

Yep and the interesting thing for us is that once you get to that $40 or so level it's really a wash vs. getting a Comcast double play package. Cable only adds $40 or so to the cost of HSI for our area assuming you get the new customer rate every couple of years (I've been able to do so for many years now).

Of course we have a Tivo + Minis for the whole house, long paid for, so we don't pay all those ripoff Comcast outlet fees for equipment. That makes a big difference.

What customers really want, and what we haven't seen yet, is the ability to create a custom "skinny bundle" for a skinny price. Get the channels you want, for the price you want. First company to make that offer wins it all.

Not gonna happen anytime soon due to something called "horizontal integration" in business speak. For example, Viacom knows that hardly anyone (without kids anyways) watches any of their channels except Comedy Central (and maybe TV Land), therefore they are never going to just offer Comedy Central. They want you to pay for that plus, MTV, MTV2 various VH1 channels, several Nickelodon channels etc etc. Nearly every channel out there is owned by about 6 or 7 big media conglomerates, who mostly have a wide disparate array of channels. They aren't going to allow any service to pick and chose which ones they want to offer.

It is something I'd love, but like lobos said with only a couple companies owning everything they have the power to say 'take it all or get nothing'. It stinks and so does paying out the yang for things I like to watch, but I pay. I weep a bit, but pay .

In the spirit of your frequent anal retentive corrections to other people's posts, I think you mean "copy-n-paste". You can't cut and paste content from somebody else's website, since you don't have permission to remove content from a page you don't own. You can only copy it.

The cut-n-paste isn't from another website, but from this website. It appears that he was using a previous Thursday posting and forgot to update the Jimmy Kimmel entry. He could have done a reply to his posting and just removed the quote tags, letting the forum software doing the cutting and pasting.

I had DIRECTV for 19 years until last summer when I dropped them and signed up for PlayStation Vue for $35 per month (a savings of $80 per month). That along with the 50+ channels I get OTA (27 of which I actually watch and have programmed into my TiVo guide) and I've never looked back.

No contracts, no ridiculous fees, no regrets. I could never go back to cable/satellite.

True, but I'm sure that Dad tries to be very accurate with the listings.

The grammar of "cut-n-paste" isn't from the English language either. Incorrect use of hyphenation and even if the word was abbreviated in the term "cut and paste" it would be written as "cut 'n' paste" since letters are being omitted.

Since you are also using antiquated printing terminology referring to the physical act of pasting lettering to an art board, even though the post was done digitally, you might think twice the next time someone uses the word "film" when referring to the making of a television show too.

Seriously???

You might want to look at it this way.. if dad doesn't do this, I have to. You've seen my posts. The error count is bound to go through the roof.

Honestly, we should start a gofundme page to get dad a 70-inch OLED for his troubles.

Then I suggest that you contact every software company that has "paste" in their edit menu and get them to stop using the term.
