‘The Wiz Live’ Soars Past ‘Peter Pan’ in Early Ratings
“The Wiz Live!” nearly eased on down the road past CBS’ “Thursday Night Football” coverage last night in Nielsen’s 56 metered-market household ratings — and it straight-up walloped the primetime NFL game per the smaller sample-size local people meters. Ultimately, CBS bested NBC per that first very preliminary Nielsen metric, though by just two-tenths of a ratings point. The networks tied for audience share, there. In the 25-market Lpm’s 18-49 demographic — the all-important age-range for broadcast advertisers — NBC’s primetime average actually easily topped that of CBS, with a 4.4/14 versus a 3.1/10. In the rough demo snapshot, the musical beat the.

Ratings Rat Race: Ncaa Final Slips, Still Tops, ‘Dream Builders’ Soft Behind ‘Voice’

It was a Cinderella story in last night’s Ncaa basketball tournament championship, with Connecticut and Kentucky making it to the title game in a matchup of two of the lower-seeded teams in history to make it that far. But the fairy tale didn’t quite translate to ratings magic, with the numbers expected to be down from last year. (In the rough, not time-zone-adjusted fast nationals, the game drew a 6.0 in 18-49, down 20% from 2014, and 17.8 million viewers, down 14%.) Still, the basketball game towered over the competition, delivering a dominating nightly victory for CBS. NBC’s The Voice (3.4) ended its downward streak, even with last Monday.

Latest Jack Ryan Reboot Sticks to Genre Conventions: Film Review

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ review: Kenneth Branagh thriller ‘plays everything too close to the middle’ (photo: Chris Pine in ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’) It’s been 12 years since CIA analyst Jack Ryan made his last motion picture appearance. The movie was The Sum of All Fears, those fears being fully realized by virtue of Ben Affleck playing Ryan. If Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit proves anything, it’s that in the ensuing dozen years, CIA analysts, spies, and various black windbreaker-sporting government underlings have learned to type very fast. Indeed, there’s a lot of typing in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, a lot of button-mashing on laptops and cell phones and a lot of barking new directives in response to the button mashing on laptops and cell phones. The lightning fast retrieval of bad guy info might be a boon to the American agents entrusted with stopping a Russian plot to sink the U.
