Ratings: ABC ‘Frozen’ Rerun Freezes Out CBS Procedurals in Key Demo

2 hours ago

A tight “Sunday Night Football” game handed its host network a pretty comfortable Nielsen ratings victory last night. Behind NBC’s and Fox’s football, ABC edged CBS in primetime among the key 18-49 demographic — though their order flip-flops in terms of total viewers. ABC rebroadcast “Frozen” on Sunday, which beat two CBS procedurals in that fairly young demo. NBC was first in ratings with a 3.9 rating/13 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 12.8 million, according to preliminary numbers.

Golden Globes Lessons: Voters Snub Diversity in Directing to Forgive Ridley Scott

2 hours ago

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association preferred big movies to little ones, they weren’t particularly driven by diversity and they’ve forgiven Ridley Scott for mocking them when they named his sci-fi drama “The Martian” the best comedy of 2015. Those were some of the lessons from the 2018 Golden Globe nominations, along with  the surprising muted reaction to Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” and the complete dismissal of “The Big Sick.” The latter film didn’t land a single nomination, though ones for screenplay, lead comedy actor (Kumail Nanjiani) and Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical seemed likely, and one for supporting actress. »
