Basically ponders about whether or not movies like Bad Education (which will be competing at the Emmys because it was acquired and released by HBO) should instead compete for the Oscars, which makes it fun to wonder what might've happened if HBO movies in the past had been theatrical releases. I know Behind the Candelabra was a theatrical release in the UK and received a ton of BAFTA noms (Damon was nominated in Lead at the Emmys but frauded into Supporting at BAFTA which probably would've happened at the Oscars too).

TV ratings have been declining for years, but even during lockdown they were so low. Last Tuesday Stargirl debuted on the CW with a 0.3 in the demo, and it wasn't even that bad. The most-watched shows that night were reality "hits" Masked Singer and The Voice, both at 0.9 - nothing at 1+.

 

If network TV couldn't get a boost from people staying home during a pandemic, many unemployed... the future remains bleak.

We're in the era where people would rather just watch programs whenever they feel like. The days of appointment TV is in the past.

Apparently tv was watched extremely more:

But:

It went into watching news that had some best in decade rating (could be a competition to other type of content).

 

Americans are always been a bit on the crazy side in term of watching a lot of tv but those numbers:

MORE WEEKLY CONTENT

According to the data from Comcast, the average household is watching TV at least 8 hours more per week. That’s a full workday more. In early March 2020, the average household watched 57 hours of content per week. That’s now up to 66 hours a week.

People have been eager to know when life was going to come back and have had their TVs turned on to the news almost 24/7. Now that things are starting to return we'll be seeing the ratings going back to more typical numbers.

Remember, once upon a time there were a great many bushfires in Australia. It must have been several years ago now but I’m sure some of you must remember.  Anyway, there’s been a development with one of the more successful fundraisers. 
 

 

Always read the fine print.

It did get a boost during March and most of April because of the pandemic. Most TV shows hit seasons highs and even series highs during that time.

Which network TV show hit a series high?

 

I'm looking at This is Us, Grey's Anatomy, The Flash; they all seem down from last year even in March/April, or at best flat (and of course, way down from their peak).

Some CBS procedurals I think. FBI maybe? Station 19 definitly did it. Flash was mostly repeats during that time. Grey's Anatomy did great as well. March and April were great times for network TV ratings.

I know it's true of many films but MI2 has another layer to it when you know the locations in Sydney.

The reviews for Space Force are mediocre as expected after the trailers. Disappointing year for sci-fi comedy shows between that and Avenue 5 (although Upload was fun).
