NBC's 'Rosemary's Baby' in ratings hell


It’s a bouncing baby bomb: Part 1 of NBC’s high-profile Rosemary’s Baby miniseries performed surprisingly poorly in the overnight ratings. The Mother’s Day remake of the classic horror novel and 1968 film  delivered only 3.7 million viewers and a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49 across its two-hour debut. In the 9 p.m. hour, it was firmly beaten by the second half of ABC’s two-hour Once Upon a Time finale and tied by Fox’s Cosmos. In the 10 p.m. hour, Rosemary’s was edged out by both ABC’s Revenge and CBS’ The Mentalist.

Rosemary’s Baby starred Zoe Saldana in the role made famous by Mia Farrow. Though reviews were mediocre (ranking only 53 out of 100 on Metacritic), one would have expected bigger numbers, if only due to its well-known title and receiving a fair amount of promotion. Perhaps between Once being extended across 9 p.m. this week and HBO blowing up its ratings with Game of Thrones in the same hour, it was tough for a new genre program to convince viewers to flip over. Speaking of which: Did Thrones set another ratings record? That number won’t be out until later today or tomorrow.

Zoe Saldana talks 'Rosemary's Baby,' reveals how tight script security is with 'Avatar' and 'Star Trek' -- LISTEN!

There are three things that helped Zoe Saldana decide to take on the role of Rosemary in NBC’s two-part remake of Rosemary’s Baby, premiering Sunday (Mother’s Day, how nice!) and concluding May 15: She liked the people she’d be working with, she found a way to remove the pressure of worrying about how fans of the classic 1968 Roman Polanski film would receive the update; and oh yes, she’d be spending three months in Paris, where this version of the horror story is set. It may have been that last one that sealed the deal, which she jokingly admitted when she stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM 105). Listen to her chat with EW Morning Live hosts Dalton Ross and Jessica Shaw below. You will also learn that the French do not take it easy on gorgeous movie stars who don’t speak their language.

In the second clip, Saldana gives updates on the next Avatar and Star Trek films, reveals just how crazy script security on J.J. Abrams and James Cameron movies can get, and is very happy to hear Dalton say he’s genuinely looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy (she got up at 3:30 a.m., six days a week, for five months, to spend four hours in the makeup chair to play Gamora).

InsideTV Podcast: Tasha from 'Survivor' has strong words for Tony and Kass

Latasha Fox made it close to the end of Survivor: Cagayan. But not close enough as she was voted out during last night’s episode. How does she think she would fared had she made it to the final Tribal Council? “Give me the million dollars,” she said when she called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning. Indeed, Tasha is confident she could have beaten anyone and everyone in any combination had she made it to the end. And those aren’t the only strong words that came out of Tasha during our discussion. She also chides Kass for her move to flip away from the majority alliance and questions any and all credit that Tony has gotten for his gameplay, asking “Is Tony that good?” Tasha also names the people in her dream final 3 as well as the player that has impressed her most watching the season play back on TV. It’s a revealing talk, and you can now listen to the entire thing right here on the InsideTV Podcast. (The Tasha interview begins at the 29:20 mark.) READ FULL STORY

'Rosemary's Baby' trailer: Zoe Saldana is the 'chosen' one -- VIDEO

In the first trailer for the Rosemary’s Baby miniseries, Zoe Saldana’s Rosemary Woodhouse couldn’t be happier to become a mom — until she’s not so sure just what is growing inside her.

The four-hour miniseries — airing in two installments on Sunday, May 11, and Thursday, May 15, at 9 p.m. on NBC — is based on Ira Levin’s 1967 novel, which also spawned (sorry) an Oscar-winning Roman Polanski film in 1968. Alongside Saldana, the new incarnation stars Patrick J. Adams (Suits) as her husband who makes a literal deal with the devil.

'Rosemary's Baby': First three images from the NBC miniseries -- PHOTOS

Zoe Saldana is about to go through one hell of an onscreen pregnancy.

The actress is starring in the NBC miniseries Rosemary’s Baby, an adaptation of the 1967 best-selling novel by Ira Levin about a woman who becomes pregnant with the devil’s spawn. The four-hour series centers on young couple Rosemary (Saldana) and Guy (Suits star Patrick J. Adams), who move next door to a satanic coven. Above is the first poster promoting the reboot and below are EW’s exclusive images from the series, which come with the tagline “fear is born.”

The NBC miniseries shifts the story to Paris, which differs from the novel and Roman Polanski’s classic 1968 film version, starring Mia Farrow, which were set in New York. In the poster, the Eiffel Tower can be seen in the background, while Saldana sports a very Farrow-esque pixie cut. As for that retro-looking baby buggy…maybe the devil prefers vintage?
