NBC Pushes ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ Live Musical to 2018
The tuner had been set to air as NBC’s holiday musical event this year. The decision to push it a year was driven by Lopez’s overflowing schedule, which includes two series for NBC, “World of Dance” and the drama “Shades of Blue.”
The postponement of “Birdie” means NBC will not stage a musical event this holiday season. Earlier this month, NBC unveiled plans for a “Jesus Christ Superstar Live” event to air on Easter Sunday next year. That project will be shepherded by Craig Zedon and Neil Meron, the pair behind all of NBC’s live musical events to date. Given the high cost of the one-night-only live events, it was unlikely that NBC could field “Superstar” just a few months after staging “Birdie,” had the show stayed on its original date, and »

Ratings: ‘Dirty Dancing’ Remake Draws 6.6 Million Viewers for ABC
The “Dirty Dancing” remake delivered ABC’s most-watched Wednesday in nearly 7 months, but that doesn’t mean the Disney-owned broadcaster topped primetime.
Neither did the network airing “Empire’s” season finale, though: Fox finished second in the key 18-49 demographic, but was fourth among total viewers.
That leaves CBS and NBC, and last night belong to the “Survivor” net.
CBS was first in ratings with a 1.7 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 7.8 million, »

Fox Heats Up Summer With ‘Love Connection’ Revival for Modern Daters With Host Andy Cohen
It’s before noon on a weekday in late March, and Andy Cohen walks out onto a massive set with possibly the most dramatic entrance ever. “Here’s your host, Andy Cohen!” the voiceover shouts, as the TV personality is unveiled from giant bridge that lowers as he graces the lit-up stage.
Though the environment is familiar to Cohen with a live audience and a cushy couch for conversation with guests, this is not “Watch What Happens Live.” Rather, the Bravo personality is taping an episode of “Love Connection,” the revival of the dating game show, which premieres Thursday night on Fox.
“Love Connection” shot over a period of about one week, bringing the New York-based Cohen to Los Angeles to do what he does best: prod into people’s personal lives.
Within minutes of introducing the second contestant — whom Cohen dubbed “buff Jesus,” thanks to his large stature and long mane of silky hair — the host »

‘Fargo’ Review: A Battle Between Ewan McGregors Has Never Felt So Wretched — And Season 3 Never More Exciting
[Editor’s Note: The review below contains spoilers for “Fargo” Season 3, Episode 6, “The Lord of No Mercy.”]
Gloria Burgle to the rescue!
After an episode of incredible tension and unexpected tragedy, we didn’t realize how badly we needed to hear Carrie Coon say, “Screw it,” whip the cruiser around, and high-tail it back to “the P.O.’s domicile.” While the simultaneously ominous and uplifting strings certainly served to get our hearts beating, “Fargo” may as well have played Bonnie Tyler’s famous “Footloose” jam “Holding Out for a Hero” — because one is on the way!
It’s just we had to hold out a little too long. Just enough road blocks were thrown in front of Burgle to keep her from cracking the case earlier, and all that time led to an inevitable tragedy. Ray (Ewan McGregor) is the first major victim of Season 3 (unless you count the annual pilot sacrifice of Scoot McNairy’s Maurice Lafay), in a particularly well-orchestrated offing. First »

Behind the Scenes Look at the Importance of Sound in Movies
This is a great quote that many film school students already know but in case you’ve never read it, does a great job encapsulating the importance of sound: “Great sound can always bump up the quality of an ‘iffy’ image, Great images can Never fix terrible sound design.” This is completely true. I’ve gone on record numerous times on this site about the importance of sound and how a great soundtrack or score can make a movie 100 times better than it might actually be. Often times music can improve a movie but if the sound is off or the

Trailer for Jason Bateman Netflix Series Ozark Looks Insane
When you think of Jason Bateman the first thing that generally comes to mind is Arrested Development. I always think of The Hogan Family and Teen Wolf Too but that’s just me I suppose. The point is that 90% of the time Bateman is usually in some kind of role where he plays an intelligent middle aged guy who knows he’s smarter than most people, has a very smug and sarcastic way about him, and he makes us laugh. So when people first heard of the Netflix show Ozark that he’s starring in I think many just assumed this was
