  • HBO, Showtime dominate Golden Globe TV nods Dec 11, 2014 9:31 AM
    HBO and Showtime dominated the television nominations for Golden Globe awards on Thursday, illustrating how the archrival pay cable networks have evolved to have very specific strengths. HBO programs and actors were responsible for 15 nominations, with two-thirds of them in the movie or miniseries category. Three HBO productions — “The Normal Heart,” “Olive Kitteridge” and “True Detective” —were among the five nominees for best miniseries or TV movie. The others were FX’s “Fargo” and Starz’s “The Missing.”

  • HBO’s ‘The Newsroom’ to end on polarizing note Dec 10, 2014 6:00 AM
    Aaron Sorkin’s much-panned “The Newsroom” has had a fraught relationship with critics since its inception, mostly because of the tendency of the HBO drama’s many insufferable characters to repeatedly, condescendingly explain what journalism really is. “The Newsroom” is set to end Sunday after a six-episode third season, and at first, it appeared it might go out quietly. Then Sunday’s episode happened — and any goodwill the show collected was instantly blown up with an unnerving-if-timely story about rape on college campus.

Kyle confirms he’s not taking his medication but said he has seen a new doctor who questions his diagnosis.

  • Rebecca Romijn joins ‘Librarians’ team in saving the world Dec 7, 2014 7:00 AM
    Rebecca Romijn says what sold her on joining the new TNT series “The Librarians” was the description given her by executive producer and co-star Noah Wyle: “It’s Indiana Jones if Indiana Jones is played by Don Knotts.” The comedy/sci-fi series, which premieres Sunday, Dec. 7, is a continuation of the trilogy of successful TV movies that starred Wyle as Flynn Carsen — aka the Librarian — an eccentric career college student who protects historical and often magical artifacts housed in a secret chamber beneath New York’s Metropolitan Public Library.

  • CBS pulls signal off Dish network after fee negotiations fail Dec 5, 2014 8:14 PM
    CBS Corp., owner of the most-watched broadcast network, pulled its signal from the Dish Network Corp. satellite-TV service after the companies failed to reach a new agreement on program fees. The blackout was imposed in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and other major markets at 6 p.m. Central time, CBS said today in a statement. Dish is the third-largest U.S. pay-TV provider, with 14 million subscribers. The blackout, in markets where CBS owns stations, highlights the growing divide between pay-TV services like Dish and media companies like CBS and Time Warner Inc. that are seeking higher rates for programming in every new negotiation. Programmers are also seeking compensation for digital services like the one Dish is trying to start. “What CBS seeks is appropriate compensation for the most- watched television network with the most popular content in the world, as well as terms that reflect the developing digital marketplace,” the New York-based network said in a statement. Bob Toevs, a Dish spokesman, didn’t immediately respond to a message seeking comment. The blackout means subscribers of Englewood, Colorado-based Dish will lose shows including “NCIS,” “60 Minutes” and some National League Football games. Companies on both sides of the negotiating table have pursued multi-billion-dollar mergers to increase their bargaining leverage. Government regulators are examining Comcast Corp.’s proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable Inc., which would unite two of the largest cable operators in the country, while 21st Century Fox Inc. failed in its quest to acquire New York-based Time Warner, owner of HBO and CNN. In addition to NFL games this weekend, CBS is scheduled to air the championship football game of the Southeastern Conference, routinely one of the most watched college games of the season. If the dispute drags on through March, it could affect viewing of some National Collegiate Athletic Association March Madness basketball tournament games. Dish is also negotiating a new programming pact with Time Warner Inc.’s Turner Broadcasting, owner of TBS and TNT. A blackout could be costly for Dish. Time Warner Cable lost 300,000 customers in one quarter last year after dropping CBS in a contract dispute. After a public standoff, Time Warner Cable agreed to pay CBS significantly more for its programming. Adding to the stakes, Dish has been seeking rights to stream TV over the Internet to computers, tablets and phones. Dish plans to be one of the first pay-TV companies to start a streaming service. The company made a deal with Walt Disney Co. in March to gain online rights for the Disney Channel, ABC and ESPN.

  • Are you still infected with ‘Frozen’ fever? Dec 5, 2014 6:00 AM

And then there’s the merchandise, which includes ... duct tape?!

     
  • Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting to be shown live Dec 3, 2014 10:30 AM

  • Nielsen report: American watch less TV, stream more Dec 3, 2014 1:34 PM
    Americans are turning away from live TV on the tube and tuning in to streaming services, a Nielsen report says. That’s bad news for cable and satellite TV providers. Americans are increasingly watching TV shows and movies on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon streaming and other services. CBS and HBO have announced standalone streaming services as well.

     
  • Forever young, NBC’s ‘Peter Pan’ is live and aloft Dec 3, 2014 6:00 AM
    NBC is recapturing its youth for a revival of “Peter Pan,” broadcast live at 7 p.m. Thursday and starring Allison Williams (“Girls”) as Peter, the cocky young champion of Neverland, and Christopher Walken as the deliciously evil pirate, Captain Hook. Why “Peter Pan” this go-around? “It’s a classic, a really great musical, that has its DNA in live television,” said Neil Meron, who with his partner, Craig Zadan, are back as executive producers.
