Future of Nick Cannon’s ‘Caught on Camera’ Up in the Air at NBC
Nick Cannon swears he’s not returning to “America’s Got Talent,” contract be damned, but what about his other NBC show? The future of “Caught on Camera With Nick Cannon” is still undecided at the network level, TheWrap has learned. And even if the multi-hyphenate isn’t currently burning his bridge with NBC executives, the economics of more episodes may not work out. That’s not necessarily because of how much third-year series “Caught on Camera” costs — any first-year Accounting major knows strong revenue can offset some bills. Unfortunately, the plug-and-play series has managed just a 0.7 Nielsen rating among adults 18-49 thus. »

David Attenborough to Narrate BBC’s ‘Blue Planet II’
David Attenborough has come on board to narrate “Blue Planet II,” a seven-part series from the BBC that explores the world’s oceans.
He said: “I am truly thrilled to be joining this new exploration of the underwater worlds that cover most of our planet, yet are still its least known.”
The series, previously known as “Ocean,” will be launched to international TV buyers at BBC Worldwide Showcase in Liverpool, England, which runs Feb. 19-22. The event attracts around 700 delegates.
The series is a BBC Studios Natural History Unit production, co-produced with BBC America, Wdr and France Televisions, in partnership with the Open University. The first “The Blue Planet” series was broadcast in 2001.
“’Blue Planet II’ explores the latest frontiers of scientific discovery, from icy-white polar seas to vibrant blues of the coral atolls, from the storm-tossed green Atlantic coastline to the black depths of the alien deep,” according to a statement.

Ratings: CBS’ ‘The Good Fight’ Debut Gets Knocked Out by ABC Movie
“The Good Fight” didn’t quite put its’ dukes up in broadcast’s key 18-49 demographic on Sunday, though CBS still won the evening among total viewers. ABC topped the main demo in primetime with movie “Tangled.” CBS and Fox tied for second, with NBC close behind. The whole night was fairly soft with President’s Day looming.

The Lego Batman Movie Is DC’s First Good Theatrical Release Since ‘The Dark Knight Rises’
DC has been struggling hard to keep up with Marvel in recent years. Sure, their bottom line doesn’t look that bad, but it’s been nothing to brag about either. Across the board, their movies have fallen increasingly far behind their chief rival both critically and financially. Even their most ardent supporters are failing to drum up much enthusiasm for previously anticipated movies like Wonder Woman and Justice League. The tides, however, appear to be changing. They just released a new Batman movie that is their highest rated theatrical release since 2008’s The Dark Knight and cleared more than $100 million

Jane the Virgin Review: Underlying Triggers
Jane the Virgin digs deeper into how Jane and her family got to where they are three years in the future. Their present realities are, to be quite honest, either miserable or deeply confusing given the people they used to be. Petra having better behaved children than Mateo should be proof enough of that. So how did everyone get on their current tracks? This week we get a little more than just the cliff notes versions of these moments. This includes a better glimpse into Jane’s mindset in the weeks and months following Michael’s sudden death. Poor Rogelio’s life has

Seth Meyers: Donald Trump’s Past Few Years In Office Have Only Been One Month
“Today is Presidents Day and just you know Trump was up at the crack of dawn, ready to open presents,” Seth Meyers said at the top of his holiday Late Night broadcast. “President Trump took office one month ago today. Wow, it's hard to believe the past few years have only been a month,” he marveled. The NBC late-night star noted a former Swedish prime minister questioned Trump's false claims during his Saturday re-election campaign speech, that there had been a terrorist… »
‘The Bachelor’ Recap: Nick Gets Down and Dirty on Hometown Dates (and Meets Corinne’s Nanny, Raquel)
Like many elements of the “Bachelor” franchise, the week of hometown dates defies logic. Most self-respecting adults would not bring home a significant other after dating for only a few weeks, while also dating several other people, and expect everyone’s family to be totally chill with the prospect of a marriage proposal in the near future.
These are all hurdles that the each of Nick’s final four’s parents seem to see at first in the distance, but overcome through some combination of time, alcohol, clever editing… or maybe (just maybe) Nick is just that charming. This is to say, it’s hometown date week on “The Bachelor.” The episode covers race, gender roles, romance across international borders, and Raven 0n an Atv. Which is where we begin.

Bates Motel Boss Dissects Premiere Twists, Confirms [Spoiler] Theory
Norman Bates’ final descent into Psychosis has begun.
The fifth and final season of A&E’s Bates Motel got underway Monday night, and it was completely, utterly, gloriously nuts. It was also heartbreaking. And on at least one occasion, slightly mystifying.
Below, showrunner Kerry Ehrin tackles some of my burning questions about the premiere, while also teasing what craziness awaits in the remaining nine episodes.

‘Timeless’ Season Finale: Shawn Ryan On Big Twist & Reset For Potential Season 2
Spoiler Alert: This story contains details about the Season 1 finale of NBC series Timeless. NBC’s freshman drama Timeless ended its 16-episode first season tonight. Unlike the network’s other new two series that launched in September, drama This Is Us and comedy The Good Place, which already have been renewed, Timeless is yet to learn its fate following strong reviews, devoted core following and modest ratings. But in the Season 1 finale, the show did not play it safe… »
Quantico Recap: Two Become One
Need to catch up? Check out the previous Quantico recap.
By the end of this week’s Quantico, the final one featuring two timelines, we know this much is true:
The mastermind behind the terrorist attack at the G20 summit was Lydia.
Alex and Ryan are very much in an “off” phase of their on-again, off-again romance.
Harry likely is never going to get the justice he’s chased all season.
Owen definitely is one of the good guys. (At least, for now.)
The damage Lydia did is going to take a new team of FBI and CIA agents to handle… »
Timeless EPs Talk Rittenhouse Twist, [Spoiler]'s Condition, Season 2 Plans
Warning: The following contains spoilers for Monday’s Timeless finale
Timeless dropped a mother of a twist during Monday night’s finale when Lucy’s mom, Carol (played by Susanna Thompson), revealed to her daughter that she’s a member of Rittenhouse. That makes Lucy something akin to Rittenhouse royalty, coming from two of the mysterious organization’s strongest bloodlines.

Supergirl‘s belated salute to Valentine’s Day could have doubled as the weirdest Bachelorette finale I’ve ever seen.

Two suitors remained at the top of Monday’s episode: Mon-El, the reformed bad boy from Daxam, and Mxyzptlk, the smarmy charmer from the Fifth Dimension. And following an hour of made-for-tv drama — honestly, I half expected Chris Harrison to emerge from behind an icicle in the Fortress of Solitude to take over hosting duties — Kara did, in fact, agree to marry one of her suitors.

‘Timeless’ Awaits Renewal Decision By NBC As Season 1 Ends: Is It Out Of Time?
NBC’s freshman time-travel drama series Timeless is wrapping its 16-episode run tonight before the network has made a decision on its future. While the other two new NBC fall series with shorter seasons, breakout drama This Is Us and comedy The Good Place, both have been renewed, Timeless is on the bubble and will likely have to wait until May to find out its fate. Timeless has been a big conundrum. It had everything going for it – A-list pedigree with Shawn Ryan and Eric… »

Five Braun Strowman Tweets I’m a Big Fan Of
Tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw, Braun Strowman gets the competition he craves in a matchup with the 7-foot Big Show in Los Angeles. In honor of this match up I decided to take a bit of a further look at Braun Strowman’s social media accounts. Did you know he has a Twitter account that started in 2013 with 76.1K followers but he has a total of 16 tweets? Hopefully the WWE has told him to get more active on Twitter because of those 16 tweets, 5 have been this month. While Strowman doesn’t say a whole bunch, his tweets

A Daily Show White House Administration That Would 100% Work
Every single member of the Donald Trump administration is being ripped to shreds by the media and by politicians themselves. There hasn’t been one appointment that wasn’t questionable nor has there been one day without mention of a scandal or some kind of offense that people deem pretty awful. At this point it’s almost impossible to think that this administration is going to last, let alone do anything to serve our country in a positive way. So I have an idea. One of the White House’s biggest opponents is The Daily Show. The Daily Show has always made it a

PopPolitics: Why Late Night Is Thriving in the Trump Era (Listen)
In the first two weeks of Donald Trump’s administration, four late-night talk shows told 195 jokes about the new president, exceeding even the level of humor about him during the campaign.
Robert Lichter, the director of the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University, tells Variety‘s “PopPolitics” on SiriusXM that “it doesn’t seem to hurt anybody’s ratings to be at war with Trump, and I suspect that in the entertainment industry now and in the L.A. area in general it is kind of a badge of honor if you are on the Trump enemy list.”
In short, he says, “They have nothing to gain from going soft on Trump.”
