Comic-Con: Sean Bean Mocks His Onscreen Deaths At TNT’s ‘Legends’ Panel

By | Thursday July 24, 2014 @ 2:02pm PDT

Comic-Con: Sean Bean Mocks His Onscreen Deaths At TNT’s ‘Legends’ PanelWith a giant banner looming over Comic-Con from the nearby Marriott and marketing all over the San Diego International AirportLegends made a splash in its geekfest debut before a word was spoken or a clip was played on today’s panel. Not that the upcoming TNT spy thriller didn’t seal the deal with the 1,000 plus fans in Room 6A  of the Convention Center – especially when the star Sean Bean showed up, kind of.

Before the short panel got under way, the audience was treated to a full preview of the first episode of the TNT show introduced by Bean himself. Via video, the actor apologized for not being at Comic-Con but joked that “maybe that’s a good thing” for the crowd’s safety as the former Game Of Thrones and Lord Of The Rings star is of course one of the most killed off actors around. “If you were me, one does not simply avoid death on a daily basis,” Bean deadpanned to howls from the fans in the room.

TNT Renews ‘Falling Skies’ For Fifth And Final Season, ‘Last Ship’ & ‘Major Crimes’ Also Picked Up

By | Friday July 18, 2014 @ 8:20am PDT
Nellie Andreeva

TNT Renews ‘Falling Skies’ For Fifth And Final Season, ‘Last Ship’ & ‘Major Crimes’ Also Picked UpTNT’s summer sci-fi drama Falling Skies has been renewed for a fifth and final season, and the network also gave a second-season order to freshman hit The Last Ship and a fourth-season pickup to Major Crimes. Falling Skies‘ final run will be for 10 episodes. TNT has ordered 13 episodes of Last Ship, an increase over its first-season order of 10 episodes. The network is also ordering 15 episodes of Major Crimes. Negotiations on a renewal of TNT’s top drama Rizzoli & Isles are underway, with that pickup expected soon. No decision yet on TNT’s other freshman drama, Murder in the First, which has not been as strong as Last Ship

I hear it was the producers’ wish to finish Falling Skies after five seasons as they felt that was the time they needed to wrap the story in the best possible way. For TNT, the pending loss of the demo rating dynamo would have been a big blow had it not been for the arrival of another breakout adventure drama, Michael Bay’s The Last Ship, which this summer, much like Rizzoli & Isles, came on just before previous TNT flagship, The Closer, wrapped its run. Falling Skies helped launch Last Ship much like The Closer launched Rizzoli & Isles. Last Ship has averaged more than 7.2 million viewers in Live + 7  and ranks as basic cable’s #1 scripted series this summer with adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 as well as also cable’s #1 new series for … Read More »

Comic-Con: San Diego Airport White Zone For Loading, Unloading And TNT’s ‘Legends’ Only

By | Friday July 11, 2014 @ 10:23am PDT

Comic-Con: San Diego Airport White Zone For Loading, Unloading And TNT’s ‘Legends’ OnlyNetwork and studio marketers have been buying up every bit of space they can in San Diego to promote their wares at Comic-Con. TNT has managed to find a pristine place though to promote its new Sean Bean-starring drama series Legends: the airport. The takeover of San Diego International Airport the week of July 21 will include Legends imagery and messaging at baggage claim carousels, escalators and skyway bridges. That will be in addition to traditional promos including Gaslamp Quarter billboards.

Image (1) TNTLogoNew__140514001303.jpg for post 729833Last year’s marketing blitzes around town during Comic-Con included a massive Helix banner from Syfy that wrapped around the Marriott Hotel next to the San Diego Convention Center, and ABC’s Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. signage on train cars.

TNT’s confab lineup this year includes summer hit The Last Ship – that marketing push includes a party aboard the USS Midway at the city’s Navy Pier — and Falling Skies. The former’s panel is July 24 at 1:45 PM in Room 6A of the convention center and the latter’s is the next day at 4:30 PM in Room 6BCF.

The Legends panel Thursday at the convention center includes cast Ali Larter, Morris Chestnut and Tina Majorino with executive producers Howard Gordon and David Wilcox. The session will open with a screening of the first episode of the series ahead of its August 13 premiere.

TCA: TNT ‘Legends’ Stars Chronically Killed-Off Sean Bean, Worrying TV Critics

By | Thursday July 10, 2014 @ 11:19am PDT

TCA: TNT ‘Legends’ Stars Chronically Killed-Off Sean Bean, Worrying TV CriticsSean Bean may be the most killed off actor working today. By some accounts, he’s been hanged, shot, and otherwise whacked about 25 times. He’s even compiled  a list of My Top 5 Death Scenes. Now, he’s starring in a new TNT series, Legends, debuting next month, playing an undercover agent working for the FBI’s Deep Cover Operations division. TV critics attending a Q&A session for the show at Summer TV Press Tour 2014 naturally wondered how long he’d last on the series– especially given that TNT had distributed T-shirts with the hashtag #DoneKillSeanBean before he took the stage.

By | Monday June 23, 2014 @ 1:01pm PDT

TNT’s ‘The Last Ship’ Debuts Strong With 5.3M Viewers; ‘Falling Skies’ Returns DownThe world may be have been decimated by a virus on TNT‘s The Last Ship but the ratings were alive and kicking for last night’s premiere. With 5.3 million total viewers the Michael Bay EP’d post-apocalyptic drama outperformed ABC’s heavily promoted Rising Star and ended up on the top of the 2014 cable debuts so far. The show drew 1.5 million viewers among Adults 18-49 and 1.7 million viewers among the 25-54 demo. Those results that also render the Eric Dane starrer sea-based series the best result in the cable world this summer. Over all its plays, Last Ship had 7.4 million total viewers with 2.3 million among Adults 18-49 and 2.6 million among Adults 25-54

With a 1.2 among the 18-49s, Last Ship is the second best drama debut of the past few weeks behind the 1.6 NBC’s The Night Shift. The medical drama launched on May 27 with America’s Got Talent as a lead-in. Back for a new season, Last Ship’s 10 PM lead-out sci-fi drama Falling Skies had 3.7 million viewers and 1.3 million among the 18-49s and 1.5 million among the 25-54s. That’s down 12% among total viewers from 4.21 million who watched the Steven Spielberg produced series 2-hour Season 3 premiere on June 10 last year.

TNT-logo__120721000844__121002154527Turner’s upfront next week will feature a familiar face. The Closer star Kyra Sedgwick is returning to TNT‘s lineup, this time as a producer. The cable network has picked up to series pilot Proof, a supernatural medical drama executive produced by Sedgwick in her TV series producing debut. Also ordered to series is the 1960s cop drama Public Morals, written, directed by and starring Ed Burns, which counts Steven Spielberg among its executive producers. Both projects, which had been clear frontrunners, have received 10-episode orders for 2015 debut.

She is persuaded to investigate cases of reincarnation, out-of-body experiences, hauntings — all of it looking for verifiable proof, to try to answer one of life’s greatest questions: Is death truly the end, or is there something … beyond?.

Jeff Bewkes Promises A Turnaround At truTV and TNT

By | Wednesday April 30, 2014 @ 8:58am PDT

trutv_logo110830153427“We are not satisfied with the recent ratings and advertising performance at some of the Turner networks,” the Time Warner chief told analysts this morning. There’s been a “significant drop off” at truTV. And at TNT “we didn’t take enough creative risks with its programming” and “lost ground with younger viewers….TNT-logo__120721000844__121002154527TNT has been softer than it should have been.” But Jeff Bewkes is ever the optimist: He has “great confidence in truTV” following management changes there. He also vows that TNT “can and will do better” with new programming. “These types of changes take time” but as a large network “TNT has access to all the resources it needs.” 

In other news from the call: Time Warner told the Street that cash from HBO’s new streaming deal with Amazon Prime will be used to develop more original programming and to build HBO GO. As a result, while it will contribute to HBO’s Q2 revenues in 2014 and over the next few years, it won’t result in a commensurate increase in profits.

Bewkes also says that Time Warner is talking with Dish Network about its plan to create a low-cost package of pay TV channels to be made available online to individual users. “It could allow us and them to target consumers who might not subscribe to multichannel TV” — especially young adults. But he adds that in these talks, as … Read More »

Tonight’s Clippers Playoff Game Expected To Clock Big Ratings After Racist-Ranting Owner Banned For Life

By | Tuesday April 29, 2014 @ 12:08pm PDT

Adam Silver Donald Sterling Press ConferenceTonight’s NBA playoff game at Staples Center on TNT has just been guaranteed a ratings spike after NBA Commissioner Adam Silver today hammered  Clippers owner Donald Sterling  with a lifetime ban from the NBA,  fined him $2.5 million, and asked other NBA team owners to force Sterling to sell the team, adding he will “do everything in my power to insure that happens.” NBAonTNTSilver said it will take a 3/4 vote by owners in favor of forcing Sterling to sell to make it happen. Asked if Sterling could remain owner if 3/4 of the owners do not vote to oust the real-estate magnet, Silver responded confidently, “I fully expect to get the support I need from the other NBA owners to remove him.”

The biggest TV audience so far for the 2014 NBA Playoffs : 4.73 million viewers clocked Sunday afternoon’s game on TNT. Overall the playoffs are averaging about 3.8 million.

Silver, who’s been commissioner just three months, had been expected to come down on Sterling with the maximum allowable punishment for the racist rant, in which Sterling forbade his mistress from posing for photos with black people or bringing them to Clippers games. ClippersWeAreOneDuring the news conference in NY, Silver apologized to Clippers players and coach Doc Rivers, as well as fans and “partners” of the NBA, saying “the views expressed by Mr. Sterling are deeply offensive and harmful.”

A couple hours after Silver’s news conference ended, syndicated TV show Access Hollywood announced Sterling’s mistress, V. Stiviano, had “spoken out in an exclusive statement” to the program:

“It’s not about Mr. Sterling. It’s about global issues that affects us as a nation as a whole,” she said in the statement, adding, “My story is bigger than racism in sports.”
