'Boardwalk Empire' finale scores season-high ratings


Boardwalk Empire‘s stunner finale delivered the show’s biggest audience of the season.

The drama was seen by 3 million viewers on Sunday at 9 p.m., with an additional 834,000 tuning in for the first replay.

The network’s sneak preview of David Milch’s new horse-racing drama series Luck, however, didn’t win, place or show: Only 1.1 million viewers stuck around to get a look at the series. This was a preview, mind you, not an official premiere … but still: You would think the grown-up Boardwalk crowd would be a good fit for Luck.

AFI's top 10 TV shows: 'Game of Thrones,' 'Louie' in; 'Glee' out

The American Film Institute has been releasing a top 10 movie list since 2000, yet one more volley in the heady awards season hullabaloo. But since 2001, the AFI has also released a list of its top television programs of the year, and their selections have often recognized shows overlooked by other awards groups, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Wire, Battlestar Galactica, and Party Down.

This year’s list recognizes several shows for the first time, including HBO’s Game of Thrones, Showtime’s Homeland, FX’s Justified and Louie, and CBS’ The Good Wife. Notably absent: Fox’s Glee, which was on the ’09 and ’10 lists; AMC’s The Walking Dead, which made last year’s list; and any miniseries or made-for-TV movies, which usually make up a healthy portion of the list.

Check out the full top 10 below:  READ FULL STORY

Michael Shannon talks last night's 'Boardwalk Empire,' and General Zod's 'cumbersome' costume

Last night’s episode of Boardwalk Empire marked a pivotal turning point for lawman Nelson Van Alden, who has spent the first half of this season trying to keep his baby mama Lucy a secret from his loving wife (to say nothing of his fellow Prohibition agents). We talked to actor Michael Shannon — currently in the midst of a busy year that includes the recent release of the lauded Take Shelter and production on 2013’s Superman reboot Man of Steel — about the big developments in last night’s episode. (As a bonus, he talked a little bit about taking over for Terence Stamp as General Zod, too!)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Van Alden clearly considers himself to be a righteous man. How did he justify his relationship to Lucy to himself? Was his plan to give this baby to his wife?
MICHAEL SHANNON: The idea was that he could somehow get away with claiming that this baby was left on a quote-unquote doorstep. He somehow managed to almost pull it off. If you step away and look at it, it is a ludicrous plan. READ FULL STORY

HBO renews 'Boardwalk Empire' for third season

HBO is bringing back Nucky Thompson for a third round.

The premium network has renewed Emmy-winning Prohibition Era-drama Boardwalk Empire. Sunday’s most recent episode delivered 2.9 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the adult demo. (Though as with most HBO shows, each episode tends to rack up higher numbers, thanks to repeats and On Demand viewing. Boardwalk has traditionally averaged around 10 million viewers).

How are you liking S2 of Boardwalk? For me: Slightly better than the first, though whenever the action cuts to the uptight Prohibition agent or depressed masked man Richard Harrow, I’m hitting FF on the remote. READ FULL STORY

The night’s biggest recipients were Gwyneth Paltrow, who won an Emmy for her guest starring role on Glee, as well as Justin Timberlake, who took a statue for his most recent hosting gig on Saturday Night Live. READ FULL STORY

'Boardwalk Empire' trailer: 'You go SCHOOL these crackers.'

The first season of Boardwalk Empire didn’t always cohere together as a sensible narrative — if that mid-season trip to the Republican National Convention served any purpose beyond wedging in some Warren G. Harding jokes, I’ll eat my fedora — but as a mechanism for getting great acting onscreen, it was a veritable perpetual motion engine. The cast of Boardwalk was so accomplished that one of its finest performers got surprisingly short shrift: Michael K. Williams, still best known as Omar from The Wire. From the look of things in the new trailer, Williams’ Chalky White may have a bigger role this season, if only because he appears to be the last guy still on Nucky Thompson’s side. While everyone else is plotting against him — Chicago, New York, Nucky’s friends, the law, the KKK — Chalky gets the stand-out line of the trailer: “You go school these crackers.” It sounds anachronistic, but I’ll ask a Linguistics Major before I make any judgments.

'Boardwalk Empire' trailer: Things are trending downward

The first season of Boardwalk Empire featured a lavish vision of Prohibition-era criminality, complete with enough decadent party scenes to make F. Scott Fitzgerald blush. But viewers were split on whether the show lived up to its “Next-Big-HBO-Show” hype. (The fact that it bore a resemblance to almost every other show in HBO history may not have worked in the show’s favor.) But as a Boardwalk skeptic, I’m surprised by how excited I feel after watching the just-released trailer for season 2. It’s simple, but effective: Steve Buscemi’s Nucky Thompson wanders down the Boardwalk, sharing deep glances with everyone in the show’s sprawling cast, who all seem to be watching him like hawks ready to strike. If nothing else, it’s a good reminder of the sheer depth of acting talent on Boardwalk‘s bench. Check it out: READ FULL STORY
