‘Dirty John’ Finale Hits Highs, ‘True Detective’ Premiere Ratings Rise In L3

‘Dirty John’ Finale Hits Highs, ‘True Detective’ Premiere Ratings Rise In L3
Bravo’s Dirty John ended its run in style, with its Season 1 finale rising to 3.3 million Live+3 viewers, 1.3 million in adults 18-49 and 1.6 million in 25-54. These were season highs for the anthology series, up +10%, +15% and +13% from the penultimate episode, respectively.

Dirty John joins BBC America’s Killing Eve as the only new cable series 2018 to date to grow every week but one in total viewers. From premiere to finale, Dirty John‘s audience grew +1.2M in total viewers, +513k in P18-49 and +611k P25-54 (L3). That is encouraging news for basic cable networks that they can successfully launch and grow serialized, thriller drama series, a prospect that has been put in doubt in light of You‘s lackluster ratings performance on Lifetime before it exploded in popularity on Netflix.

During its run, Dirty John was the 2nd highest-rated scripted series basic and premium cable

Is Outlander's Bonnet a Bigger Villain Than Black Jack? An Ep Weighs In

Is Outlander's Bonnet a Bigger Villain Than Black Jack? An Ep Weighs In
Anyone who watched the preview for this Sunday’s Outlander (Starz, 8/7c) knows that, like the bad penny he is, Stephen Bonnet is poised to return.

The Irishman is a scheming, unrepentant scoundrel who has stolen, raped and murdered — and that’s just taking into account what’s happened since Jamie and Claire made his acquaintance in this season’s premiere. But is he a worse villain than Black Jack Randall, a misogynistic sadist who derived both physical and emotional pleasure from breaking Jamie’s body and spirit in Seasons 1 and 2?

We posed that question to Outlander executive producer Matthew B. Roberts

‘Dynasties’: How Producers Captured This Epic ‘Game of Thrones’ Tale With Fangs

‘Dynasties’: How Producers Captured This Epic ‘Game of Thrones’ Tale With Fangs
“Dynasties” is a new breed of nature documentary. With drama this thrilling and gut-wrenching, it’s not for the faint of heart. More intense than “Planet Earth,” “Dynasties” sticks with one animal family per episode to follow their heartbreaking fates and triumphant fortunes.

“It’s a very different editorial approach,” says longtime nature program narrator Sir David Attenborough. “The thought was we’ll watch them over the next two-and-a-half years and show you exactly what happens. We won’t fiddle around with it; we will show the action as truthful as we can.”

These are cutthroat stories of survival that have the highest of stakes. Yes, these are actual creatures who live and die in the wild, but also each of the animals featured on the BBC-produced series is on the endangered species list. If a real, concerted effort isn’t made to protect them, “Dynasties” could be one

The Five Best Kristen Bell Movies of Her Career

Sometimes it’s hard to see Kristen Bell as anything but the good girl, but she’s played someone that’s not quite so naive and has been anything but good before. But something about her just seems to say that she’s bound to be the protagonist more than the antagonist in whatever she plays, a telltale look that she has that seems to almost scream “good”. Throughout her career though she’s exercised a ranger of characters that has managed to elevate her status in show business in a way that has made it clear that she’s not bound to one role or

How the Show Lethal Weapon has Changed Since Season 1

Lethal Weapon is a Fox show that can be best-described as being a buddy cop show with both comedic and dramatic elements.

Bill Maher Gets Booed for Booking Ann Coulter on ‘Real Time’

Bill Maher Gets Booed for Booking Ann Coulter on ‘Real Time’
“Real Time” returned last night after a two-month hiatus, and Bill Maher wasted little time courting controversy — this time from his own studio audience. During a panel discussion with former congressman Barney Frank, Maher received boos from the crowd when he announced that Ann Coulter would be on the show next week.

“Yeah, that’s called a newsmaker. A policymaker. You’ll have to suck on that,” he said in response to his audience’s vocal disapproval. Coulter has appeared on “Real Time” on several occasions throughout the years, and the two are friends despite holding diametrically opposed political views.

It wasn’t the first time Coulter was mentioned last night. During his monologue, which focused on the ongoing government shutdown as well as the latest bombshell revelations about Donald Trump and his inner circle, Maher alluded to the fact that Coulter and other Fox News personalities have the president
