state-of-affairs

Katherine Heigl’s return to prime-time got off to a somewhat soft start Monday night. Her new D.C. political thriller State of Affairs delivered 8.6 million viewers and a 2.2 rating among adults 18-49.

Despite a strong The Voice lead-in, State of Affairs was down 37 percent from NBC’s The Blacklist premiere earlier this season in this slot. Still, the new drama delivered enough to beat ABC’s Castle (2.0) and CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles (1.7) in the adult demo at 10 p.m. READ FULL STORY

All about the new songs in 'Peter Pan Live!' -- and how the show's handling 'Ugg-a-Wugg'

In addition to classics like “I Won’t Grow Up” and “I’m Flying,” NBC’s upcoming live production of Peter Pan will feature some songs unfamiliar even to those who wore out their VHS copies of the Mary Martin movie.

Peter Pan Live! enlisted Amanda Green—the daughter of one of Peter Pan‘s original lyricists, Adolph Green, and a Broadway veteran in her own right—to help expand the show with new lyrics for pre-existing melodies. “It fleshed out the show. It deepened the characters, it kind of drove plot more—which good songs do in musicals. Amanda was just wonderful in capturing the spirit of her father and [Green's partner] Betty Comden,” executive producer Neil Meron told EW. READ FULL STORY

Somebody had to make a tough phone call to Betty White today: TV Land has canceled Hot in Cleveland.

The sitcom has run for six seasons on the basic cable channel, and co-starred White, Valerie Bertinelli and Jane Leeves. The show followed three entertainment industry veterans from Los Angeles who lease a Cleveland home from a sassy caretaker. The series also launched a spin-off starring Cedric the Entertainer called The Soul Man, which has run three seasons.

Statement from TV Land: “After five incredible seasons of Hot in Cleveland, the sixth season, currently in production, will be its last. It’s been an honor to work with Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and the incomparable Betty White as well as our executive producers Suzanne Martin, Todd Milliner, Sean Hayes and the rest of our exceptional writers, production team and crew. The passion and talent they brought to the set each and every week over the past 5 years has put TV Land on the map as a network dedicated to quality original programming. We will continue to celebrate the show and are looking forward to a fantastic series finale.”

The sixth and final season debuted Nov. 5.

'Westworld' gets HBO series order

HBO’s robots-gone-wild project Westworld is a go.

The sci-fi series pilot starring Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, James Marsden and Evan Rachel Wood has received an official series order. Westworld is described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin” and tells the story of a futuristic amusement park called Westworld, where customers can experience forbidden fantasies. The project is  timely given recent headlines about advances in robotic engineering and artificial intelligence.

The project is based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 film and has some heavy-hitters behind the scenes too: It’s co-written and directed by Jonathan Nolan (Interstellar) along with writer Lisa Joy, and has J. J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub, and Bryan Burk as executive producers. READ FULL STORY

Lifetime's Aaliyah movie was a hit despite backlash

aaliyah

You might not have liked it very much. But Lifetime’s Aaliyah biopic delivered a pretty big audience, especially for a Saturday night.

Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B had 3.2 million viewers and 1.7 million adults 18-49. That makes it the No. 2 TV movie of the year in the adult demo behind Lifetime’s own Flowers in the Attic, which aired back in January. (And it means Aaliyah out-delivered the Flowers sequel, Petals in the Wind, though not among total viewers.)

Executive producer Wendy Williams reportedly responded to the scorn on her show: “I see my Aaliyah movie broke the Internet this weekend! Errbody got an opinion. Well, I must tell you, whether you loved or hate, you watched. It was the second-highest rated movie on all of cable this year so far.”

The post-film documentary Beyond the Headlines: Aaliyah was also strong with 2.7 million viewers. Lifetime will repeat Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B tonight at 8 p.m., but lower your expectations: EW gave it a “C” grade, and Twitter users were rather harsh.
