REVIEWS OF NEW YTN SERIES
SOCCER STORIES
Average media score: 84/100
High: 100 - "This years best new comedy is a little known gem in Soccer Stories. It's fun, it's witty, and it is all about family. It feels fresh and new."
Low: 55 - "There are problems with Soccer Stories that make it cringe-worthy at times, but it does have a few heartfelt moments too."

I AM REBECCA
Average media score: 46/100
High: 68 - "Love, sadness, and a journey toward adulthood is on the line is this odd new series. Definitely worth the trip to see how it sets itself up over the season, and beyond."
Low: 15 - "I Am Rebecca makes a terrible error in trying to set up too many storylines at once. It will suffer because in one episode, its already a jumbled mess."

MARRIAGE BY DEFAULT
Average media score: 30/100
High: 50 - "Probably three laugh out moments don't hide the fact that the rest is rather bland. Hopefully writers find a better balance, and quick, or it will suffer."
Low: 10 - "The leads fail to have any chemistry, which makes the entire premise of the show amiss. The writing is bland and run of the mill with any other multi-camera comedy on the air. You're better off with anything else."

FAMILY BUSINESS
Average media score: 25/100
High: 45 - "Not great, not terrible. It feels like a generic pilot for any family comedy. A few more episodes to find itself will show the future of it."
Low: 15 - "Yikes, another generic comedy from YTN."

BURGER AND FRIES
Average media score: 15/100
High: 25 - "Among all of the cliches of a burger comedy, the shows fails to miss the point: its a comedy."
Low: 0 - "Skip this years worst new comedy. Not only does Burgers and Fries stink, its awful."

COPS OF BALTIMORE
Average media score: 10/100
High: 25 - "Your run-of-the-mill police procedural. If you enjoy these kinds of shows, you'll love it. If not, don't waste your time."
Low: 0 - "As if Cops of New York hitting a wall isn't enough, writers will try to tackle two shows at once. At the results are as bad as expected."

THE DARK SIDE OF MR. DOUGLAS
Average media score: 0/100
High: 0 - "Horribly confusing, horribly acted, and all around laugh-out-loud-bad, we're not sure if YTN is playing a joke on us or not.
Low: 0 - "New drama The Dark Side of Mr. Douglas may be one of the worst television series to ever grace the small screen. There are zero redeeming qualities for watching more than fifteen minutes other than for a laugh."

Default Sisters Final Season Preview

Sisters Final Season Teaser
Season 12 Tidbits and Teasers

The twelfth and officially the final season of Gen-TV's smash hit "Sisters" debuts on Friday and it promises to be a massive and memorable season. Executive Producer Monica Firestone says "We aren't resting on our laurels in the final season, this program has a lot of life left in its final year and our characters will be put through the wringer." Indeed, as the season premiere opens, our title sisters will find themselves in a very dark place, literally as they deal with a hurricane that is headed directly towards them. Given real life events that happened recently, this storyline could easily feel manipulative and exploitive; if not insensitive, but as Firestone explains "we were pretty far along in the filming process of this season when the devastating hurricanes in Texas and Florida hit; but we responded to those situations by making some edits in post-production that will make the storyline easier to deal with." "It also helps that even before those events took place we had very few shots of the actual hurricane." "Most of the season will take place after the storm." "We will also be airing a warning before each episode of the season, to warn people that given the recent events this storyline might be too much for some people."

However dark the first episode may be, Firestone promises "a lighter season than in recent past, tonally. Nobody is going to die." Last season saw the death of three characters, Hannah (Lisa Nicole Carson), Evelyn (Jennifer Finnigan) and Dianne (Paula Devicq). Firestone previews "Nobody will die this season, I don't think our audience can take that this year, but the characters will have to deal with some emotional devastation following the hurricane." It seems in particular, that Emily (Maura West) will be dealing with a lot of loss as she losses her house in the hurricane and having to move in with Carly (Elisabeth Rohm).

Other highlights of this season will be Anne (Charlotte Ross) and her adoptive mother, Margie (Tyne Daly) becoming members of gamblers anonymous and helping others deal with their addictions. Romance will also be on the table for Carly, as she has her first major romantic storyline in years. Firestone explains "Carly has sort of been on the backburner the last several years as other storylines took precedent but this year she has one heck of a storyline as she deals with romance in an unexpected way."

You should also expect to see brief visits from Sherry Stringfield as Sheila, Esai Morales as Lawrence and Ming-Na Wen as Dr. Novick. Lastly, Firestone says a treat started in season one will be fulfilled, as the original cast of NBC's "Sisters" will all make special cameos. Swoosie Kurtz, Sela Ward, Patricia Kalember, Julianne Phillips, Jo Anderson and Sheila Kelley will all pop up at some point. Several of these actresses did appear in season one as their characters from NBC's "Sisters", and Sela Ward had a recurring role as a different character in season seven.

Default Gen-TV's 2017 Emmy Award Victories

Quote:

A Hollywood Now Report


Including various technical and creative arts categories, Gen-TV Studios grabbed over 40 nominations for the 67th Annual Emmy Awards says newly minted Vice President of the studio, Eva Vargas. Below is a full list of this year's nominees in the major categories, with Gen-TV's nominations in BOLD print. (Including Hollywood Now's commentary on the noms).

Outstanding Comedy Series:

Atlanta, FX Networks
VEEP, HBO
Blackish, ABC
Master of None, Netflix
Modern Family, ABC
Silicon Valley, HBO
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Netflix
Selling Out, Gen-TV Network
Every Other Weekend, Gen-TV Network

COMMENTARY:

"Selling Out" has been a stand-out for Gen-TV all season long; so it is no surprise to see this Tina Fey comedy competing here. It'll be interesting to see it compete against Tina's Netflix show, "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt". Even though both are probably going to lose out to FX's "Atlanta" or ABC's "Black-ish" which have dominated the critical pool this season.

Our odds on favorite to win is "Black-Ish", with "VEEP" on its heels.

Meanwhile, it is something of a surprise to see "Every Other Weekend" grab a nomination. It was just barely renewed for a second season and has generated very little critical support.

Lead Actor, Comedy Series:

Anthony Anderson, Blackish, ABC
Aziz Ansari, Master of None, Netflix
Donald Glover, Atlanta, FX
Zach Galifianakis , Baskets, FX
William H. Macy, Shameless, Showtime
Jeffery Tambor, Transparent, Amazon
Steve Schirippa, Peretti Rules, Gen-TV Network
Kyle Bornheimer, Every Other Weekend, Gen-TV Network
Chris Parnell, Selling Out, Gen-TV Network

COMMENTARY:

The surprise here was Steve Schirippa for "Peretti Rules", a show that wasn't well received by the public and was canceled quickly. Also surprising it the success of "Every Other Weekend", and a nomination for Bornheimer. Chris Parnell for "Selling Out" is a strong contender and could easily win this category. His work is the most traditionally comedic which could give him a leg-up, over the more serious nominees.

However, our odds on favorite to win is Donald Glover.


Lead Actress, Comedy Series:

Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, Veep, HBO
Allison Janney, Mom, CBS
Tracee Ellis Ross, Blackish, ABC
Pamela Adlon, Better Things, FX
Elie Kemper, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Netflix
Jane Fonda, Grace & Frankie, Netflix
Lily Tomlin, Grace & Frankie, Netflix
Christina Applegate, Every Other Weekend, Gen-TV Network
Octavia Spencer, Selling Out, Gen-TV Network
Rachel Dratch, Selling Out, Gen-TV Network
Tina Fey, Selling Out, Gen-TV Network
Patti Labelle, Mama Knows Best, Gen-TV Network

COMMENTARY:

What a crowded category we have here. We also have a trend with Gen-TV's "Selling Out" and "Every Other Weekend" grabbing four slots in total. The Academy clearly responded to "Selling Out" with nods for its three leading ladies, Tina Fey, Octavia Spencer and Rachel Dratch. And Christina Applegate represents "Every Other Weekend" while co-star Sarah Chalke is snubbed in favor of Patti Labelle from "Mama Knows Best."

Our favorite to win here is Tracee Ellis Ross, but Octavia Spencer is a close second.


Supporting Actor, Comedy Series:

Louie Anderson, Baskets, FX
Ty Burrell, Modern Family, ABC
Alec Baldwin, Saturday Night Live, NBC
Titus Burgess, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Netflix
Tony Hale, Veep, HBO
Matt Walsh, Veep, HBO
Alec Baldwin, Selling Out, Gen-TV Network
Ken Marino, Sisterly Love, Gen-TV Network

COMMENTARY:

Alec Baldwin competes against himself in this category, earning nods for "Saturday Night Live" and "Selling Out." However, we believe he'll win for SNL. Nipping at his heels is Louie Anderson, who won last year. Gen-TV's other nominee is Ken Marino from "Sisterly Love"; a worthy but completely random choice.

Supporting Actress, Comedy Series:

Vanessa Bayer, Saturday Night Live, NBC
Leslie Jones, Saturday Night Live, NBC
Kate McKinnon, Saturday Night Live, NBC
Judith Light, Transparent, Amazon
Kathryn Hahn, Transparent, Amazon
Anna Chlumsky, Veep, HBO
Swoosie Kurtz, Desperately Amy, Gen-TV Network
Roseanne Barr, Going South, Gen-TV Network
Lisa Bonet, Mama Knows Best, Gen-TV Network

COMMENTARY:

In this category, we have three SNL ladies competing against two from Amazon's Transparent. For Gen-TV we have three nominees from rapidly different series. Roseanne gets a stunning surprise nod for "Going South"; the lowest-rated series of the season and the first canceled. Swoosie Kurt, a beloved veteran actress nabs a nod for her work on the acclaimed, but unpopular with viewers, "Desperately Amy" while Lisa Bonet, earns a nod for "Mama Knows Best". She was nominated in 1986 for "The Cosby Show."

Our favorite to win is Kate McKinnon. But we are glad to see nominations for Vanessa Bayer and Leslie Jones as well.


Directing, Comedy Series:

Atlanta, FX
-Donald Glover (Episode Title "B.A.N.")

Silicon Valley, HBO
-Jamie Babbit (Episode Title "Intellectual Property")

Silicon Valley, HBO
--Mike Judge (Episode Title "Server Error")

Veep, HBO
---Morgan Sackett (Episode Title "Blurb")

Veep, HBO
---David Mandel (Episode Title "Groundbreaking")

Veep, HBO
--Dale Stern (Episode Title "Justice")

Molly Says, Gen-TV Network
--Molly Shannon & Jayne Everett (Episode Title "Finale")


Selling Out, Gen-TV Network
--Robert Carlock (Episode Title "The Devil Wears K-Mart")


Every Other Weekend, Gen-TV Network
---Emilia Tiverton (Episode Title "Spring Break 2016")


COMMENTARY:

"Molly Says" grabs a nomination for its series finale, which we thought would have been forgotten by voters by now. And no surprise, the premiere episodes of "Every Other Weekend" and "Selling Out" continue the trend for Gen-TV today. However, we think "VEEP" will win for David Mandel.


Writing, Comedy Series:

Atlanta, FX
---Donald Glover (Episode Title "B.A.N.")

Atlanta, FX
--Stephen Glover (Episode Title "Streets on Lock")

Master of None, Netflix
--Aziz Ansari, Lena Waithe (Episode Title "Thanksgiving")

Silicon Valley, HBO
-Alec Berg (Episode Title "Success Failure")

Veep, HBO
--Billy Kimball (Episode Title "Georgia")

Veep, HBO
--David Mandel (Episode Title "Groundbreaking")

Raising Grandma, Gen-TV Network (Episode Title "Cancer Scare")
--Millicent Fairchild, Freddie Chandler and Jackee Harry


Selling Out, Gen-TV Network (Episode Title "Judgement Day")
-Tina Fey, Robert Carlock



Suddenly Single, Gen-TV Network (Episode Title "Birthday Surprise")
---Jenji Kohan, Iliza Schlesinger



COMMENTARY:

Talk about a surprise batch of nominees! "Suddenly Single" and "Raising Grandma" grab nominations; alongside "Selling Out" and a group of more acclaimed streaming series. The nod for "Suddenly Single" would seemingly be due to the respect of its co-creator Jenji Kohan. That series though acclaimed didn't last long. We really have no idea why "Raising Grandma" got nominated, except that they submitted a strong episode for voters to view. The episode concerned Jackee Harry's character dealing with a breast cancer scare.

The odds on favorite here is Atlanta.

Outstanding Drama Series:

This Is Us, NBC
Westworld, HBO
Better Call Saul, AMC
House of Cards, Netflix
The Crown, Netflix
Stranger Things, Netflix
The Handmaids Tale, Hulu
Finding Home, Showtime
Cop City, Gen-TV Network
The Malones, Gen-TV Network
Trauma Center, Gen-TV Network

COMMENTARY:

These nominees are the one's we all predicted last month, with the exception of Gen-TV's "The Malones", which nobody saw as a contender due to its low viewership. "Cop City" has been Gen-TV's surprise prestige drama for awhile now, and "Trauma Center" has been picking up steam. However, our favorite is "The Handmaids Tale", with "This Is Us" falling just behind. Gen-TV Studios Produced drama "Finding Home" also lands on the list, though it airs on Showtime.

Lead Actor, Drama Series:

Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul, AMC
Kevin Spacey, House of Cards, Netflix
Liev Schriber, Ray Donovan, Showtime
Matthew Rhys, The Americans, FX
Milo Ventimiglia, This Is Us, NBC
Sterling K. Brown, This Is Us, NBC
Anthony Hopkins, Westworld, HBO
Chris Pine, Mallory's of Jefferson County, Gen-TV Network
Matt Czurchy, The Malones, Gen-TV Network
Bailey Chase, Code of Ethics, Gen-TV Network
Nathan Fillon, The Mulroney Mysteries, Gen-TV Network

COMMENTARY:

Chris Pine grabs a nod, for what very well could be his final season on "Mallory's" if contract talks don't resume soon. However, it is Matt Czurchy for "The Malones" who gets our attention for submitting a very baity scene featuring his character having a mental breakdown. Bailey Chase is the oddity here, as his role was woefully underwritten. Nathan Fillon gets a nod mostly due to the strong ratings for his series. Our favorite to win is Milo Ventimigla.

Lead Actress, Drama Series:

Robin Wright, House of Cards, Netflix
Keri Russell, The Americans, FX
Viola Davis, How To Get Away With Murder, ABC
Claire Foy, The Crown, Netflix
Elizabeth Moss, The Handmaids Tale, Hulu
Evan Rachel Wood, Westworld, HBO
Susan Sarandon, Finding Home, Showtime
Susan Sullivan, The Malones, Gen-TV Network
Charlotte Ross, Sisters, Gen-TV Network
Audra McDonald, The Hardest Goodbye, Gen-TV Network
Gena Rowlands, The Mallory's of Jefferson County, Gen-TV Network

COMMENTARY:

A very strong and deserving group of nominees However, Claire Foy is the favorite hands down. Susan Sullivan earns a nomination for "The Malones", and wisely submitted the season premiere which set-up the series. She is a strong contender. Charlotte Ross, Audra McDonald and Gena Rowlands make-up Gen-TV's other nominees; and are all worthy. Susan Sarandon also grabs a nod for "Finding Home" which is produced by Gen-TV Studios.

Supporting Actor, Drama:

Jonathan Banks, Better Call Saul, AMC
Mandy Patinkin, Homeland, Showtime
Michael Kelly, House of Cards, Netflix
David Harbour, Stranger Things, Netflix
John Lithgow, The Crown, Netflix
Ron Cephas Jones, This Is Us, NBC
Jeffery Wright, Westworld, HBO
Chris Cooper, Finding Home, Showtime
Henry Czerny, The Malones, Gen-TV Network
Donald Sutherland, The Mallory's of Jefferson County, Gen-TV Network
Lou Diamond Phillips, Cop City, Gen-TV Network
Dennis Franz, Sisters, Gen-TV Network

COMMENTARY:

Voters clearly took to "The Malones" more than viewers did as it earns another nomination here for Henry Czerny, while "Mallory's" grabs a nod for Donald Sutherland. Lou Diamond Phillips earns a nod for "Cop City" and "Sisters" earns a nomination for new cast member Dennis Franz, who did fantastic work supporting Tyne Daly. The odds on favorite to win is Ron Cephas Jones. "Finding Home" seems to have hit with voters, as Chris Cooper earns a nod for his work on the series which is produced by Gen-TV Studios.

Supporting Actress, Drama Series:

Uzo Aduba, Orange Is The New Black, Netflix
Millie Bobby Brown, Stranger Things, Netflix
Ann Dowd, The Handmaids Tale, Hulu
Samira Wiley, The Handmaids Tale, Hulu
Chrissy Metz, This Is Us, NBC
Carrie Preston, Finding Home, Showtime
Thandie Newton, Westworld, HBO
Tyne Daly, Sisters, Gen-TV Network
Kim Cattrall, The Malones, Gen-TV Network
Dana Delany, The Malones, Gen-TV Network

COMMENTARY:

Tyne Daly is the most award actress in Emmy history, and could earn another trophy for her incredible work on "Sisters." In her role, she played a recovering alcoholic who confronts the adopted daughter who abandoned her for her birth family; who also becomes addicted to gambling. In the episode submitted, Daly's character deals with the aftermath of her gambling addiction being revealed as she is arrested for theft and begs her family for forgiveness.

Two nods for "The Malones" for Kim Cattrall and Dana Delany, who got in on the strength of their submissions. Delany's episode involves her character finally revealing a nearly season-long scam where she was pretending to be in love with Perry King's character but was really undercover as a journalist trying to get a story on him. Cattrall's episode involved her character confronting the homophobic father of her son, on his behalf. The moving sequence featured an impressive 3 1/2 minute monologue and passionate performance.

Lastly, Carrie Preston lands a nod for her work on "Finding Home", produced by Gen-TV Studios.

However, the hands down favorite to win this one is Chrissy Metz.

Directing, Drama Series:

Better Call Saul, AMC
--Vince Gilligan (Episode Title "Witness")

Homeland, Showtime
Lesli Linka Glatter (Episode Title "America First")

Stranger Things, Netflix (Episode Title "Chapter One: The Vanishing Of Will Byers")
---The Duffer Brothers

The Crown, Netflix (Episode Title: "Hyde Park Corner")
---Stephen Daldry

The Handmaids Tale, Hulu (Episode Title "Offered" aka "Pilot")
--Reed Morano

The Handmaids Tale, Hulu (Episode Title "The Bridge")
-Kate Dennis

Westworld, HBO (Episode Title "The Bicameral Mind")
--Jonathan Nolan

Grand Champion, Gen-TV Network (Episode Title "Spring Practice: Day One")
---Stephen Soderberg


The Malones, Gen-TV Network (Episode Title "Homecoming Part 1")
---John Tram


Hollywood Law, Gen-TV Network (Episode Title "The Fade Out")
---John McGinty Cleavers


COMMENTARY:

Another surprise batch of nominees from Gen-TV here; with "The Malones" grabbing a nomination for its mid-season finale, and "Hollywood Law" grabbing a nomination for its series finale. "Grand Champion" gets in for its director, Stephen Soderberg, and nothing more. We believe that "The Crown" is the favorite here.


Outstanding Writing, Drama Series:

Better Call Saul, AMC (Episode Title "Chicanery")
---Gordon Smith

Stranger Things, Netflix ("Chapter One: The Vanishing Of Will Byers")
--The Duffer Brothers

The Americans, FX (Episode Title "The Soviet Divison")
---Joel Fields, Joe Weisberg

The Crown, Netflix (Episode Title "Assassins")
---Peter Morgan

The Handmaids Tale, Hulu (Episode Title "Offered" aka "Pilot")
---Bruce Miller

Westworld, HBO (Episode Title "The Bicameral Man")
---Lisa Joy, Jonathan Nolan

The Hardest Goodbye, Gen-TV Network (Episode Title "When Prayers Aren't Answered")
---Sarah Smiley Matherson, Megan Ludwick


The Mallory's of Jefferson County, Gen-TV Network (Episode Title "So Long, My Sweet Mother")
---Gabrielle Gifford & John Tram


The Malones, Gen-TV Network (Episode Title "Homecoming, Part 2")
---John Tram, Gordon G. Licht


Law & Order: Immigration, Gen-TV Network (Episode Title "Detained")
---Dick Wolf, Antonia Markum


COMMENTARY

The most shocking nomination here is the inclusion of "Law & Order: Immigration" which seems to be motivated by a political stance some voters are taking. It doesn't stand a chance at winning; and the more deserving nominations for Gen-TV go to "The Malones" and its mothership, "Mallory's of Jefferson County." We are also glad to see that "The Hardest Goodbye" grabbed a spot as well. However, the favorite to win is "The Crown."


Outstanding Structured Reality Program:

Antiques Roadshow, PBS
Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives, Food Network
Fixer Upper, HGTV
Lip Synch Battle, Spike TV
Shark Tank, ABC
Who Do You Think You Are?, TLC
Bizarre Jobs, Gen-TV Network
Ty Tells All, Gen-TV Studios
The Bidding War, Gen-TV Studios


COMMENTARY:

Gen-TV earned three nominations here, with "Ty Tells All" being the odd duck. We believe the winner here will be "Antiques Roadshow."

Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program:

Born This Way, A&E
The Deadliest Catch, Discovery Channel
Gaycation with Ellen Page, Viceland
Intervention, A&E
RuPaul's Drag Race: Untucked, Youtube
United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell, CNN
Soapless: Life After Daytime, Gen-TV Network


COMMENTARY:

Gen-TV gets a surprise nomination for its documentary about former daytime soap stars. However, it will likely lose to "RuPaul's Drag Race."

Outstanding Reality-Competition Program

American Ninja Warrior, NBC
Project Runway, Lifetime
The Voice, NBC
Top Chef, Bravo
The Amazing Race, CBS
RuPaul's Drag Race, VH1
Celebrity Cooking Battles, Gen-TV Network
Man Seeking Man, Gen-TV Network

COMMENATRY:

Gen-TV's two worthy nominees will most likely lose out to "The Voice."

Outstanding Variety/Talk Series:

Full Frontal w/Samantha Bee, TBS
Jimmy Kimmel Live, ABC
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, HBO
Real Time with Bill Maher, HBO
The Late Late Show with James Corden, CBS
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, CBS
Ask Alyssa, Gen-TV Network
NightCap featuring Gio Benitez, Gen-TV Network
In The News with Janeane Garofalo, Gen-TV Network

COMMENTARY:

We think that Samantha Bee is going to take this, but we are proud of Gen-TV's three nominations.

Outstanding Host, Reality or Reality-Competition Series:

RuPaul Charles, RuPaul's Drag Race, VH1
Alec Baldwin, Match Game, ABC
Martha Stewart & Snoop Dogg, Martha & Snoops Potluck Dinner, VH1
Gordon Ramsay, Masterchef Junior, FOX
Heidi Klum & Tim Gunn, Project Runway, Lifetime
W. Kamau Bell, United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell, CNN
Janeane Garofalo, In The News with Janeane Garofalo, Gen-TV Network
Keith Olbermann, Hourly News with Keith Olbermann, Gen-TV Network
Alyssa Milano, Ask Alyssa, Gen-TV Network

COMMENTARY:

We'll keep this short; Alec Baldwin, RuPaul or Janeane Garofalo will be the winner here, maybe even a tie. Our personal choice would be RuPaul.

Gen-TV's comedies return stronger than ever, with "Magic School" down only .21% over last fall's premiere (in total viewers) and down only .02% in demos. "Zendaya" returns with minimal losses as well. "Unlikely Family" returns down 20% in total viewers, but up by 5% in demos.

Series Premiere of "Awakened" debuts to 10.4 million and 4.3 in demos, a solid start, but hardly a breakout success. "Shortage" debuts to soft numbers, 8.4 million/3.1, and settles for last place in its timeslot. While, "Bedroom Stories" is a total bust with 6.21/3.1 18-49.

8pm: Magic School (Season Premiere; New): 18.5 million/5.3 18-49

-----------


Monday, September 11:

Gen-TV's second night of the season was filled with ups and downs. On the positive side, "Hart of Family" returns with huge increases across the board over last fall's series premiere, and on-par with their season finale. "Homecourt Advantage" starring Nick Cannon debuts to strong numbers, while "Highly Functioning Adults" surprises with a very strong premiere, nearly doubling the estimated audience for that show.

On the negative side, "Say Uncle" starring John Stamos is an immediate let-down, drawing only 7.3 million/3.1 18-49. Legal drama "Malpractice" debuts to mild numbers, settling for last place in the 11pm timeslot.

8pm: Hart of Family (Season Premiere, New): 21.3 million/6.3 18-49

Tuesday, September 12:

Gen-TV Tuesday was a big success, with returning series "Deadly Visions" on-par with its typical performance, and losing only a moderate amount in demos. "The Special Classroom" may be the source of controversy among some educators, but it drew a larger audience, and did exceptional in demos.

The two big let-downs were "Cop City" down significantly from last fall, and "Spaced Out" which debuts to lower than expected numbers.

8pm: The Special Classroom (Series Premiere, New): 23.1 million/7.2 18-49
830: Fish Out Of Water (Series Premiere, New): 18.2 million/5.2 18-49

8pm: Raising Grandma (Season Premiere, New): 13.3 million/5.6 18-49

Saturday, September 16:

Gen-TV Saturday was a bit of a let-down with "Celebrity Road Trip Adventures" falling flat and "Your Last Wish" debuting dead on arrival. "The Witches of West Side" show some sign of potential life, so long as they don't decrease dramatically week to week. "Jack of All Trades" was the solo victor here, nearly matching the numbers of the show from which is was spun-off, "Deadly Visions" from earlier in the week.


8pm: Your Last Wish (Series Premiere, New): 7.1 million/3.1 18-49
9pm: Celebrity Road Trip Adventures (Series Premiere, New): 9.4 million/3.3 18-49

11: Jack of All Trades (Series Premiere, New): 23.5 million/6.8 18-49

------------------------

Sunday, September 17:

Due to the Emmy telecast on CBS and football airing on cable, numbers for Gen-TV's second Sunday of the season are lower than usual, but still show signs of success, especially when DVR viewing is factored in.

8pm: Magic School (New): 13.1 million/3.1 18-49
830: Zendaya (New): 12.4 million/4.4 18-49
9pm: Unlikely Family (New): 13.3 million/4.4 18-49

Sisters Final Season Teaser
Season 12 Tidbits and Teasers

The twelfth and officially the final season of Gen-TV's smash hit "Sisters" debuts on Friday and it promises to be a massive and memorable season. Executive Producer Monica Firestone says "We aren't resting on our laurels in the final season, this program has a lot of life left in its final year and our characters will be put through the wringer." Indeed, as the season premiere opens, our title sisters will find themselves in a very dark place, literally as they deal with a hurricane that is headed directly towards them. Given real life events that happened recently, this storyline could easily feel manipulative and exploitive; if not insensitive, but as Firestone explains "we were pretty far along in the filming process of this season when the devastating hurricanes in Texas and Florida hit; but we responded to those situations by making some edits in post-production that will make the storyline easier to deal with." "It also helps that even before those events took place we had very few shots of the actual hurricane." "Most of the season will take place after the storm." "We will also be airing a warning before each episode of the season, to warn people that given the recent events this storyline might be too much for some people."

However dark the first episode may be, Firestone promises "a lighter season than in recent past, tonally. Nobody is going to die." Last season saw the death of three characters, Hannah (Lisa Nicole Carson), Evelyn (Jennifer Finnigan) and Dianne (Paula Devicq). Firestone previews "Nobody will die this season, I don't think our audience can take that this year, but the characters will have to deal with some emotional devastation following the hurricane." It seems in particular, that Emily (Maura West) will be dealing with a lot of loss as she losses her house in the hurricane and having to move in with Carly (Elisabeth Rohm).

Other highlights of this season will be Anne (Charlotte Ross) and her adoptive mother, Margie (Tyne Daly) becoming members of gamblers anonymous and helping others deal with their addictions. Romance will also be on the table for Carly, as she has her first major romantic storyline in years. Firestone explains "Carly has sort of been on the backburner the last several years as other storylines took precedent but this year she has one heck of a storyline as she deals with romance in an unexpected way."

You should also expect to see brief visits from Sherry Stringfield as Sheila, Esai Morales as Lawrence and Ming-Na Wen as Dr. Novick. Lastly, Firestone says a treat started in season one will be fulfilled, as the original cast of NBC's "Sisters" will all make special cameos. Swoosie Kurtz, Sela Ward, Patricia Kalember, Julianne Phillips, Jo Anderson and Sheila Kelley will all pop up at some point. Several of these actresses did appear in season one as their characters from NBC's "Sisters", and Sela Ward had a recurring role as a different character in season seven.

Hollywood Insider Report:
Correction about "Sisters"

The Hollywood Insider would like to issue a correction regarding a story we posted last week. We accidentally posted a story regarding the twelfth and final season of Gen-TV's "Sisters" that stated the series twelfth season would debut on Friday, September 15. This is factually incorrect as "Sisters" will not be debuting until mid-season this year. Hollywood Insider accidentally posted a draft of a story we were working on to publish later this season.

We apologize to Gen-TV and to the producers, cast and crew of "Sisters", we apologize to our readers for this error and for our oversight. We produce over 600 hours of articles, videos, blogs and news stories every year and sometimes mistakes are made. We apologize and strive to do better in the future.

This error was pointed out to us by executives at Gen-TV and by our faithful readers who spotted this error. We apology sincerely.

Daytime & Weekend Schedules

With the writers strike averted, Gen-TV and other networks are able to proceed with their planned UpFront Presentations for advertisers where they unveil their new line-ups of programming. While Gen-TV Network won't make their official primetime presentation until Friday, they did hold today their Daytime & Weekend program; revealing their plans for Daytime (M-F) and Weekend (Saturday & Sunday) programming. This portion of the program was held in New York City at the Regency Plaza Hotel and was presented in-tandem by Gen-TV Studios President Ross Chin, Vice President Alexander Anthony Montez (Alex Montez), Board of Directors Chairperson Cain Wentworth and was hosted by Jackee Harry (Raising Grandma; The Jackie Show), Janeane Garofalo (In The News with Janeane Garofalo) and "Family Court" cast members Judge Alex Ferrera and Attorney Gloria Allred.

The 2 1/2 hours long presentation highlighted the network's Monday thru Friday daytime programming, including an all-new season of "Family Court"; featuring a revamped cast with Judge Alex Ferrera and Attorney Gloria Allred sitting in for departing hosts Glenda Hatchett and Mablean Ephriam. When the series returns in the fall with it's brand new season; it will feature a brand new format, more close in tone to long-running series "Divorce Court" instead of the overtly sensational tone it has had this season. Ross Chin commented on the decision to make this change saying "We heard the complaints and the concerns about the tone of Family Court, and took very seriously the concerns people had that we were exploiting children." "We have worked diligently with producers to change this and season 2 will not be as scandalous and will be more in line with current court shows in that regard." "Children will no longer be seen on the show, as their faces will be obscured."

In addition to returning to Gen-TV for season 2, "Family Court" is debuting in national syndication as well, and has been cleared in 98% of the country, with Tribune owned stations being the primary home outside of Gen-TV for the show.


Another exciting announcement is the renewal of hit soap opera "Edge of Justice", which will start a brand new storyline in the fall, and will feature a big cast change at that point. More about that will be announced closer to fall, however Gen-TV did confirm one big casting scoop; current lead cast member Hillary B. Smith, will remain with the series in the same role. Ross Chin explains "Hillary has become the face of this show and her character has easily become the most popular on Edge of Justice." "We are proud to keep Hillary and her fascinating and conflicted attorney on our network." Since debuting in January 2017, "Edge of Justice" has quickly emerged as a solid performer, quickly becoming the #2 overall Daytime Soap on TV, narrowly defeated by "The Young & Restless" in most ratings periods by less than a tenth of a point. For the period of February 6-March 10, 2017, "Edge of Justice" was the #1 rated Daytime Soap Opera on TV with Female Viewers aged 14-25.

Gen-TV's daytime programming will also include additional seasons each of hit news programs "Hourly News with Keith Olbermann", "In The News with Janeane Garofalo" and "NightCap starring Gio Benitez" with the first two moving to the afternoon hours to form a two-hour block of programming from 4-6pm. Previously these staples aired in the early morning.


Debuting this season, is a brand new original sitcom; "The Jackie Show" starring Jackee Harry (Raising Grandma) as a once popular talk show host desperate to reclaim her status as the "queen of daytime talk." This single-camera comedy will feature hilarious cameos from Wendy Williams, Sally Jesse Raphael, Ricki Lake, Oprah Winfrey, Rolonda Watts and Geraldo Rivera. The half-hour sitcom will air two episodes back to back from 12-1pm.

The last big announcement about Gen-TV's M-F line-up is the debut of the revamped "A.M. Live" which is now called "Gen-TV Live starring Chrissy Teigen & Jai Rodriguez" and will be much edgier, youthful and young than the previous incarnation. It will air daily from 11-12pm, Live coast-to-coast.

In terms of weekend programming, Gen-TV has spent a small fortune this year acquiring top-tier second run programming to fill those hours and has acquired a diverse slate of programs as varied as "E.R.", "NYPD BLUE", "The West Wing", "The Nanny", "Married With Children" and "Two and A Half Men." They will continue to break their weekend programming into two separate blocks; the first consisting of "Modern Day Masterpieces" and the second of "Classics & Gen-TV Originals". For the first half, they have acquired shows such as "The Americans", "Justified", "30 Rock", "Sons of Anarchy" and reacquired "The Good Wife." For the other block, they'ved filled it with shows from the Gen-TV Studios vault and classic sitcoms like "Designing Women", "The Golden Girls" and "Gimme A Break" among many others.

Ratings for Gen-TV Daytime:
Original Programs Pull Big Numbers

Ratings for Gen-TV's brand new daytime line-up are available and the network should be proud as their schedule seems to be a success. The new seasons of daytime programming began airing on September 11th and have been fairly impressive so far.

Among the returning series, the biggest successes continue to be "In The News with Janeane Garofalo" and "NightCap featuring Gio Benitez" which from the dates of September 11-15, 2017 pulled in an estimated 35.2 million viewers and reached a 4.6 in demos, according to national ratings reports. (these numbers are based on combined estimates). Of the two, "NightCap" returned with only a .024% loss year-to-year, while "In The News" returned with a slightly larger .45% loss year-to-year (overall), while actually gaining .049% in demos, whereas "NightCap" lost .034% in demos.

Among other returning series, "Family Court" returned for its second season with huge changes among its cast and its tone, purposely shifting away from sensationalized stories in favor of a more human tone. Ratings were down only a small percentage, with the series generating an average of 17.5 million viewers between 9/11/17 and 9/15/17. That is a loss of less than 5% year to year. Among demos the loss was even smaller, with the series shedding only .031% in demos.


The big loser among returning series was "Hourly News with Keith Olbermann" which shed a significant amount of viewers year to year, returning down 22% over last season debut. That said, the series still averaged 14.2 million viewers and a 3.4 in demos.


Among the network's daytime talk series, a revamped version of "A.M. Live" now called "Gen-TV LIVE starring Chrissy Teigen and Jai Rodriguez" debuted to 7.3 million viewers and a 3.4 in demos on September 11th. It's second episode on September 12th garnered 7.2 million/3.1 18-49, On September 13th they reached 8.4 million/3.3 18-49. On September 14th, they netted 7.2 million/2.2 18-49 and lastly on September 15th, 6.5 million/3.8 18-49.

These ratings put it far below the average that "A.M. Live" was getting last year with departing hosts Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete, and actually below ratings for cancelled talk shows starring Lisa Rinna and Maria Menounos. It still ranks higher than the cancelled series starring Joan Lunden, but not by much.

"Celebrity Dinner Party starring Neil Patrick Harris" returned for season two, with relatively little press or promotion and netted an average of 6.3 million/4.5 18-49 over the course of five days, not too shabby. Time will tell if it manages to grow this season.


Now for the network's new daytime entry, "The Jackie Show", a hybrid sitcom/talk show starring Jackee Harry, star of the networks primetime hit "Raising Grandma" debuted to 4.3 million/3.5 18-49 (on 9/11/17), and to generous reviews which praised Harry's nuanced performance and the above average writing. On 9/12/17, the series netted 4.7 million/3.6 18-49, and on 9/13 it garnered 4.6 million/3.3 18-49 and on 9/14 3.9 million/3.3 18-49 and on 9/15 it was viewed by 4.5 million/3.3 18-49. If the series maintains this pattern it should be an easy shoe-in for a season two. (NOTE: This series airs two episodes back-to-back daily, so ratings calculations are combined for both half-hours and counted as one hour of TV.)

In other news, Gen-TV also had great success with their schedule of second-run programming, of which they spent a great deal of money updating for this fall. Starting with the weekday block which consists of both sitcom and drama reruns, Gen-TV had great success with "NYPD BLUE" reruns attracting the largest audience over the five day period, with estimates at around 820,000 viewers over the course of that timeframe. Among demos, estimates place it at netting a 2.2. Another big success for the network was reruns of "Married with Children" which netted an estimated 670,000 viewers over the five day period and an estimated 1.7 in demos.

The biggest losses for Gen-TV so far were "E.R." which has flatlined in the ratings since its September 11th debut. According to industry reports, Gen-TV paid over two million dollars for the rights to air this series and it hasn't paid off, as the series only attracted 300,000 viewers over the course of the five day period, and netted below a 1.1 in demos.

Ratings for Gen-TV owned sitcoms "The Arrival" and "Knocked Down" were respectable but weren't anything to be excited about. "Knocked Down", netted an estimated 400,000 (and a .98 in demos) viewers over the course of five days. A bit of a let-down considering it hasn't aired very much on TV since it ended its primetime run. It briefly aired in syndication between 2013 and 2014 before Gen-TV Studios abruptly pulled it from the air. "The Arrival" did marginally better, garnering 414,000 viewers (and a 1.0 in demos).


Moving onto the weekend line-up, Gen-TV aired two blocks during this period. The first block consisting of "classics" and the second of "contemporary" programming were big successes, giving Gen-TV's its largest weekend audience in four years, and driving viewership up over 15% year to year. The classic block was a much bigger success however, as viewers flocked to see programming that hasn't been available elsewhere in years. Among the biggest hits were "Family Ties" and "The Nanny". Although Gen-TV was unable to provide ratings information for this report, estimates are that "The Nanny" netted just over 1 million viewers and a 3.3 in demos and that "Family Ties" just over 900,00 and 2.3 in demos. Sources tell us that the biggest flop on this block was "Kate & Allie" which likely suffered from being a show that hasn't been on TV as often as other programs in this block and was thus likely the most unfamiliar to much of Gen-TV's audience. Estimates place viewership for this show at 110,000 viewers over five days, and a .24 in demos.

Among the "contemporary" block, the biggest success was hands down "Law & Order" which netted "well over 1.3 million viewers" according to TV analyst Stacie Salem-Jackson, among demos it delivered, netting over 2.3 overall. On the losing end for this portion of the programming block was "The Mindy Project" which failed to garner much traction, despite a heavy marketing push by Gen-TV who secured the exclusive TV syndication rights to this show, which is produced by HULU. It netted "just under 100,000 viewers over the five day period and a .033 in demos" says Salem-Jackson.

Sunday, September 17, 2017
8- Mother & Daughter - season seven premiere - 7.85 million viewers and 1.7 (1.703) A18-49, down six tenths from its season six premiere (26%).

830- Suburbia - season nine premiere - 7.23 million viewers and 1.6 (1.584) A18-49, up one tenth from the season seven premiere (October 2016).

9- Full Time Mom - season five premiere - 8.09 million viewers and 1.7 (1.739) A18-49, down six tenths from last years premiere.

930- Life Lessons - season two premiere - 7.05 million viewers and 1.6 (1.603) A18-49, down three tenths from its October 9, 2016 series premiere, but in line with its season average.

10- Virus - season five premiere - 10.84 million viewers and 4.5 (4.506) A18-49, up four tenths from the season four debut and a new series high (previous: 4.1, for the aforementioned season four premiere). This is the first season to debut during the fall and it appears to have paid off for YTN. This is the fourth season premiere in a row that Virus has set a new series high.



Monday, September 18, 2017
8- Soccer Stories - SERIES PREMIERE - 5.03 million viewers and 1.4 (1.387) A18-49. A rather meh debut for the new series about three different soccer families. The show will have to hold strong in the coming weeks to survive.

830- Burgers and Fries - SERIES PREMIERE - 3.26 million viewers and 1.0 (0.980) A18-49. The debut of YTN's poorly received freshman comedy got off to a rough start, shedding 32% of its meh-lead in. The series now ranks as the lowest-rated YTN comedy premiere in the networks history. Fifteen minute numbers show a rather strange story, likely due to its lead out: 0.904/1.056

9- Call Girls - season seven premiere - 15.67 million viewers and 6.7 (6.716) A19-49, down four tenths from its last season premiere. Despite falling behind last years premiere, this point is above *every* other one except that episode and episode two (also a 6.7). Half hour: 6.683/6.734

10- I Am Rebecca - SERIES PREMIERE - 4.84 million viewers and 1.4 (1.418) A18-49. There are no words other to say this is horrific debut. Retention from Call Girls was 31% among total viewers and 21% in the demo; absolutely terrible. Fifteen minute numbers also showed more bad (really really bad) news for the freshman drama: 1.957/1.603/1.145/0.966. Any series that shows 50% from start to finish, it is never a good sign. Perhaps YTN will cut its losses quickly.



Tuesday, September 19, 2017
8- Looking for Love - season seventeen premiere - 7.91 million viewers and 2.4 (2.355) A18-49, up four tenths from the fall 2016 debut and three tenths from the spring 2017 premiere. Overall, the mojo from last season continued early this year and helped the show set its best debut since spring 2015 (also 2.4). This was the first time the show aired an hour and a half episode.

930- Marriage by Default - SERIES PREMIERE - 5.87 million viewers and 1.8 (1.755) A18-49. This is a solid by-retention debut at 74% in viewers and 75% in the demo. Fifteen minute numbers were very stable at 1.763/1.748, so many viewers liked what they saw.

10- TAKEN - season nine premiere - 11.04 million viewers and 2.0 (1.951) A18-49, down four tenths from last years premiere.



Wednesday, September 20, 2017
8- Boston General - season five premiere - 6.12 million viewers and 1.1 (1.058) A18-49, down six tenths (35%) from last years premiere. The performance is one tick above the shows all time low.

9- CIA Files - season three premiere - 13.89 million viewers and 3.3 (3.319) A18-49, down seven tenths (17%) from last years premiere.

10- The Dark Side of Mr. Douglas - SERIES PREMIERE - 5.83 million viewers and 1.1 (1.14) A18-49, another dud premiere in YTN's lackluster week of premieres. As if I Am Rebecca wasn't bad enough already, Mr. Douglas retained a meager 42% of viewers and 34% in the demo. The fifteen minute numbers paint the ugliest pocture of them all though: 1.774/1.105/0.984/0.720



Thursday, September 21, 2017
8- Behind the Scenes - season nine premiere - 9.02 million viewers and 2.3 (2.305) A18-49, down three tenths from last years season premiere.

830- Blended - season three premiere - 7.24 million viewers and 1.8 (1.832) A18-49, down five tenths from last years 930 premiere.

9- The Hughes Family - season five premiere - 9.33 million viewers and 2.4 (2.398) A18-49, down nine tenths (or 28%) from last years debut. The Hughes Family had a rollercoaster season for most of last season, so its difficult to gauge where the show heads from here.

930- Family Business - SERIES PREMIERE - 7.01 million viewers and 1.7 (1.716) A18-49, down six tenths from the season premiere of last years timeslot occupant (Blended), which also had a much larger Hughes Family lead in. Retention from its lead in was a decent 75% in viewers and 72% in the demo. Consider this a case of, it could certainly be better, but it could be worse too.

10- TAKEN: Phoenix - season eight premiere - 9.78 million viewers and 1.6 (1.603) A18-49, down three tenths from last years premiere.



Friday, September 22, 2017
8- Serve and Protect - season two premiere - 7.26 million viewers and 0.8 (0.824) A18-49, down 1.1 points from its Wednesday 10 o'clock debut last season. In its new timeslot, this does tie the shows series low (February 3, 2017), but all in all is not a terrible performance.

9- Cops of Baltimore - SERIES PREMIERE - 7.24 million viewers and 0.8 (0.808) A18-49. It is difficult to know what the expectations were for the spinoff series, but this is below almost every performance of Serve and Protect in the timeslot last season. Fifteen minute numbers were a bit weird: 0.794/0.835/0.813/0.789

10- Cops of New York - season eight premiere - 9.67 million viewers and 1.1 (1.124) A18-49, down four tenths (27%) from last years premiere.

Saturday, September 16:

Gen-TV Saturday was a bit of a let-down with "Celebrity Road Trip Adventures" falling flat and "Your Last Wish" debuting dead on arrival. "The Witches of West Side" show some sign of potential life, so long as they don't decrease dramatically week to week. "Jack of All Trades" was the solo victor here, nearly matching the numbers of the show from which is was spun-off, "Deadly Visions" from earlier in the week.


8pm: Your Last Wish (Series Premiere, New): 7.1 million/3.1 18-49
9pm: Celebrity Road Trip Adventures (Series Premiere, New): 9.4 million/3.3 18-49

11: Jack of All Trades (Series Premiere, New): 23.5 million/6.8 18-49

------------------------

Sunday, September 17:

Due to the Emmy telecast on CBS and football airing on cable, numbers for Gen-TV's second Sunday of the season are lower than usual, but still show signs of success, especially when DVR viewing is factored in.

830: Zendaya (New): 12.4 million/4.4 18-49

On the positive side, "Highly Functioning Adults" maintained the sizeable audience from its premiere and ticked upward in demos. "Hart of Family" was steady week to week while "Homecourt Advantage" was down slightly in demos, but not enough to be worrisome.

8pm: Hart of Family (New): 20.4 million/6.4 18-49
830: Homecourt Advantage (New): 18.8 million/4.6 18-49
9pm: Say Uncle! (New): 6.7 million/2.2 18-49

"Running In Circles" showed growth in demos, while "Degree of Guilt" builds upon numbers from last week, for a dazzling 9.2 in demos. "The Plain Land Murders" drops from 28.3 million to 26.4 million and from 8.8 to 7.5 in demos, but still solid outing. "Every Other Weekend" also shows growth week to week, hitting 4.9 in demos.

Default Ross Chin FIRED from Gen-TV

Breaking News:
Gen-TV Fires Ross Chin
--Eva Vargas To Replace Him


In the wake of Gen-TV's latest ratings, and what some are calling "the worst fall Gen-TV has ever had", Ross Chin is getting the axe and has been fired as President of Gen-Tv Studios. Due to his intimate involvement with developing and picking the series on the fall schedule, Ross is getting the blame for the network's poor performance so far this season. As he exit his role, Eva Vargas will ascend from Vice President to President, replacing him. The Vice President role is being eliminated in favor of more control being given to the board of directors.

All changes are effective immediately. This also confirms that any rumors of Eva Vargas being prevented contractually from getting the President job were false. Sources earlier this year had claimed that her contract prevented her from ever becoming President of Gen-TV, but clearly that is no true.

Default Vargas Makes Changes

Eva Vargas GUTS Gen-TV Schedule
---New President says she is "taking out the trash."

She isn't wasting any time. Just hours after being minted as Gen-TV's newest president, replacing the abruptly fired Ross Chin, Eva Vargas is making big moves, gutting the network's primetime lineup and ordering development to quickly begin on multiple new projects.

First the bad news, Vargas has responded to recent ratings reports with absolute decisiveness cancelling nine series, including some veteran programming. Getting the axe today are veteran series "Cop City", just two episodes into its fourth season; "Sisterly Love", two episodes into its third season, and "Boston Homicide", a sophomore series that was scheduled to return in mid-season. She has also cancelled freshmen series "Say Uncle", "Call & Response", "Excessive Force", "Awakened", "Shortage" and "Bedroom Stories" after only two episodes each. Explaining this decision Vargas said "The results are very clear from recent viewership data, these programs were not working on any level." "They have not showed the potential to be profitable nor have they connected with audiences. We are cutting our losses and ending them right now. Production on these series is suspended indefinitely and they are being pulled from the air effective immediately."

Returning this month for its fourth season "Cop City" has dropped dramatically in the ratings from a series-high of over 40 million viewers two seasons ago to a low of 9 million viewers this week. Sources tell Hollywood Insider that another factor in its cancellation is that "Cop City" failed to attract any buyers when it was quietly offered for broadcast syndication earlier this year. Sources say "It received only one offer for less than 150,000 per episode, a paltry sum that was an absolute failure in the eyes of Gen-TV Executives." Pair that with a sharp decline in critical support as recent reviews have called the series "past its prime" and "ready to be put out to pasture." The program currently holds a 61% on Metacritic, down from 90% last year. It would seem the quality of the series is to blame for this drop.

"Boston Homicide" debuted last fall to boffo ratings but those quickly fell as the season went on, a renewal was a bit of a surprise as ratings had declined dramatically by mid-season. A complete revamp of the series was planned but that never came to pass, resulting in today's cancellation.

Meanwhile, "Sisterly Love" recently posted a 2.4 in demos, sharply down from an average of 5.6 last season. Some may call this cancellation a petty act of revenge from Vargas, who lost her job at YTN Network over a controversy regarding statements about "Sisterly Love." But ratings for the show clearly justify cancellation.


Now in order to fill the holes left vacant by these cancellations, Vargas has big plans the empty timeslots, which are explained below:

Monday:

Filling the holes left open by the cancellation of "Say Uncle", Gen-TV is shifting "Hart of Family" and "Homecourt Advantage" back by half an hour each to make room for an brand new series "Climb The Pyramid: Family Edition", a spin-off of summer game show "Climb The Pyramid." It will air for half an hour each Monday, and will feature one family competing to win cash prizes and luxury items. They will play a abbreviated version of the game, with a speedier format.

8pm: Climb The Pyramid: Family Edition (New Series)
830: Hart of Family (New Timeslot)
9pm: Homecourt Advantage (New Timeslot)
930: Threesome
10pm: Highly Functioning Adults (New Series)
11pm: Malpractice (New Series)

Tuesday:

To fill the slot of cancelled drama "Cop City", Gen-TV will move "Deadly Visions from 10pm to 11pm, and adding a brand new season of "Ask Alyssa", a talk show starring Alyssa Milano that got fantastic ratings last year. It was previously still on the bubble.

8pm: The Special Classroom
830: Fish Out Of Water
9pm: Spaced Out
10: Ask Alyssa (New Season)
11pm: Deadly Visions (New Timeslot)

Wednesday:

Replacing "Sisterly Love" will be reruns of "Single Again"; a Gen-TV Studios produced series currently airing original episodes on TV One.

8pm: Making It Work
830: Running In Circles
9pm: Single Again (Reruns)
930: Every Other Weekend
10: Degree of Guilt
11pm: The Plain Land Murders


Thursday:

Thursday will remain in-tact with no changes.

8pm: Raising Grandma
830: Mama Knows Best
9: The Boss Lady
930: Selling Out
10pm: The Mallory’s of Jefferson County
11pm: American Citizen


Friday:

On Friday, reruns of "Trauma Center" will from 10pm-12am, replacing cancelled dramas "Call & Response" and "Excessive Force."

8pm: Outside The Lines
830: Limited Edition
9pm: The Mulroney Mysteries
10pm: Trauma Center (Reruns)
11pm: Trauma Center (Reruns)


Saturday:

Shockingly no changes are being made to Saturday as of yet and all series will remain in tact.

8pm: Your Last Wish
9pm: Celebrity Road Trip Adventures
10: The Witches of West Side
11: Jack of All Trades


Sunday:

Replacing three cancelled freshmen series (Awakened, Shortage, Bedroom Stories) will be reruns of three Gen-TV hits ("Mama Knows Best", "Selling Out", "Sisters.")

8pm: Magic School
830: Zendaya
9pm: Unlikely Family
930: Mama Knows Best (Reruns)
10: Selling Out (Reruns)
11pm: Sisters (Reruns)


Plans to develop new programs are underway and any future announcements will be made as they become available.

8- Mother & Daughter - 6.83 million viewers and 1.5 (1.482) A18-49, down two tenths from last week.

830- Suburbia - 6.35 million viewers and 1.4 (1.351) A18-49, down two tenths from last week.

9- Full Time Mom - 7.01 million viewers and 1.5 (1.534) A18-49, down two tenths from last week.

930- Life Lessons - 6.49 million viewers and 1.4 (1.423) A18-49, down two tenths from last week.

10- Virus - 9.74 million viewers and 4.0 (4.013) A18-49, down five tenths from last weeks season premiere. Despite the drop, this is still the second-highest rated episode in the shows history and will all but finish as the number two drama for the network this fall (behind Call Girls).


Monday, September 25, 2017
8- Soccer Stories - 4.24 million viewers and 1.2 (1.204) A18-49, down two tenths from last weeks series premiere. The show will really have to hold still now in order to avoid cancellation.

830- Burgers and Fries - 2.45 million viewers and 0.7 (0.691) A18-49, down three tenths from last weeks series premiere. Look at these fifteen minute numbers: 0.602/0.779, showing some pretty large tune in for Call Girls and little to zero interest in Burgers and Fries. It's incredibly difficult to see the series continue past this point.

9- Call Girls - 12.95 million viewers and 5.6 (5.596) A19-49, down a huge 1.1 points (17%) from last weeks season premiere.

10- I Am Rebecca - 3.58 million viewers and 0.9 (0.942) A18-49, down five tenths from last weeks series premiere. Retention from Call Girls was 28% among total viewers and 17% in the demo. Monday nights are a rough night for these freshmen series.



Tuesday, September 26, 2017
8- Looking for Love - 6.87 million viewers and 1.8 (1.843) A18-49, down six tenths from last weeks season premiere.

930- Marriage by Default - 5.76 million viewers and 1.3 (1.306) A18-49, down five tenths from its series premiere.

10- TAKEN - 9.84 million viewers and 1.7 (1.721) A18-49, down three tenths from last week to a new series low.


Wednesday, September 27, 2017
8- Boston General - 4.82 million viewers and 0.8 (0.834) A18-49, down three tenths from last weeks return to a new series low.

9- CIA Files - 12.13 million viewers and 2.9 (2.910) A18-49, down four tenths from last week.

10- The Dark Side of Mr. Douglas - 3.12 million viewers and 0.6 (0.644) A18-49, down five tenths from last week. After an already terrible premiere, week two somehow lost almost *50%* of it audience. YTN has a real problem with pretty much every freshman series at this point. Look at these fifteen minute numbers: 1.023/0.502/0.529/0.521



Thursday, September 28, 2017
8- Behind the Scenes - 9.15 million viewers and 2.3 (2.305) A18-49, even with last weeks season premiere.

830- Blended - 6.73 million viewers and 1.6 (1.612) A18-49, down two tenths from last weeks season premiere.

9- The Hughes Family - 8.37 million viewers and 2.1 (2.102) A18-49, down two tenths from last week.

930- Family Business - 6.64 million viewers and 1.5 (1.514) A18-49, down two tenths from the series premiere last week. This looks very lead-in dependent, but at this point, its YTN's highest rated new series.

10- TAKEN: Phoenix - 8.96 million viewers and 1.5 (1.501) A18-49, down a tenth from last week.



Friday, September 29, 2017
8- Serve and Protect - 6.37 million viewers and 0.7 (0.698) A18-49, down a tenth from last weeks season premiere.

9- Cops of Baltimore - 5.24 million viewers and 0.5 (0.534) A18-49, down three tenths from last weeks series premiere. Diving over 35% in week two after an already 'meh' debut is an all but certain cancellation. Given last years episodes of Cops of New York with the Baltimore crossover were season highs, this horrific start is odd.

10- Cops of New York - 8.22 million viewers and 0.9 (0.852) A18-49, down two tenths from last week.

In the wake of Gen-TV's latest ratings, and what some are calling "the worst fall Gen-TV has ever had", Ross Chin is getting the axe and has been fired as President of Gen-Tv Studios. Due to his intimate involvement with developing and picking the series on the fall schedule, Ross is getting the blame for the network's poor performance so far this season. As he exit his role, Eva Vargas will ascend from Vice President to President, replacing him. The Vice President role is being eliminated in favor of more control being given to the board of directors.

All changes are effective immediately. This also confirms that any rumors of Eva Vargas being prevented contractually from getting the President job were false. Sources earlier this year had claimed that her contract prevented her from ever becoming President of Gen-TV, but clearly that is no true.
THE HOLLYWOOD INSIDER

VARGAS BECOMES GEN-TV PRESIDENT AS YTN GOES UP IN FLAMES
A few months after leaving YTN, Eva Vargas has officially became the new President of GEN-TV. That move comes on the heels of Ross Chin getting ax from his position, allowing Vargas to move up to president.

Meanwhile, the schedule Vargas set up at YTN for the fall has all but imploded, leaving many to wonder if she will do the same to GEN-TV. YTN is off to the worst fall start in network history, and every freshman series has fallen well-short of expectations.

Vargas was the one who assembled the new Monday night block, led off by single camera comedies, into gritty Call Girls, followed by a soapy drama. There is zero flow with the night, and all three freshmen series have failed to generate excitement. The lone critical standout, Soccer Stories, is already at a 1.2 in week two - with little room for error ahead.

Then there was the decision to cancel YTN Studios new franchise player TAKEN: Global, and replace it with an extended Looking for Love and a new comedy. Looking for Love came back with a roaring start, but fell harshly in week two, leading Marriage by Default to fall as well. The comedy is already at the levels of spring-time 'Global'.

Finally, it was Vargas who pushed for The Dark Side of Mr. Douglas and Cops of Baltimore, both of which have floundered. Mr. Douglas was trashed by critics and viewers, even though it has the networks second largest lead in with CIA Files. Cops of Baltimore seemed like a solid fit, but the network overestimated its appeal.

Two weeks into the season, nearly every veteran series is down double digits compared to last season. Television has obviously changed since Vargas' tenure at YTN began, but she didn't seem to do much to change the way YTN operates. It appears to have left YTN in a difficult position.

The lone bright light on YTN this season (at least with season to season comparisons) is Virus, which is up *again* from its previous premiere to new series highs. The move to push it to the fall was made *against the wishes* of Eva Vargas, who wanted it to remain on during only the spring.

Time shall tell how GEN-TV fares and if Paul Johnson can lift YTN's spirits again.

In its second Monday of the season, Gen-TV had some positives and negatives. On the negative side, "Say Uncle" starring John Stamos lost a significant portion of its demos; sliding from a 3.1 to a 2.2. "Malpractice" showed zero growth in demos and went from 9.4 in total viewers to a 7.5, signaling a loss of 20%. On the positive side, "Highly Functioning Adults" maintained the sizeable audience from its premiere and ticked upward in demos. "Hart of Family" was steady week to week while "Homecourt Advantage" was down slightly in demos, but not enough to be worrisome.

8pm: Hart of Family (New): 20.4 million/6.4 18-49
830: Homecourt Advantage (New): 18.8 million/4.6 18-49
9pm: Say Uncle! (New): 6.7 million/2.2 18-49

"Spaced Out" grew in total viewers from a 7.5 to a 8.6 and ticked up in demos from a 4.3 to 5.5; showing growth. "Deadly Visions" continues to be a star player, landing 24.6 million viewers and a 7.5 in demos. "Cop City" shows no growth from last week, and slides downward in demos.

8pm: The Special Classroom ( New): 20.2 million/6.4 18-49

-------------------------------------


Wednesday, September 20:

Wednesday seems to be the magic night for Gen-TV this season, as it lands in the #1 spot for the second week in a row. "Running In Circles" showed growth in demos, while "Degree of Guilt" builds upon numbers from last week, for a dazzling 9.2 in demos. "The Plain Land Murders" drops from 28.3 million to 26.4 million and from 8.8 to 7.5 in demos, but still solid outing. "Every Other Weekend" also shows growth week to week, hitting 4.9 in demos.

8pm: Making It Work (New): 17.3 million/4.3 18-49
830: Running In Circles (New): 13.5 million/4.6 18-49

11pm: The Plain Land Murders (New): 26.4 million/7.5 18-49

---------------------

Thursday, September 21:

Gen-TV should be very impressed as night two of "American Citizen" garners 64.4 million viewers and a 13.6 in demos. "The Boss Lady" grows to 22.3 and 5.5 in demos. "Selling Out" jumps to 9.3 in demos.

8pm: Raising Grandma (New): 13.4 million/5.4 18-49

As expected "The Mulroney Mysteries" rides Gen-TV to a successful Friday, even as all series saw decreases week to week.

8pm: Outside The Lines (New): 6.3 million/1.5 18-49
830: Limited Edition (New): 12.1 million/3.3 18-49

11pm: Excessive Force (New): 7.2 million/1.3 18-49
----------------------------------

Saturday, September 23:

Unfortunately for Gen-TV, the only series on Saturday to show any growth were "Jack of All Trades" and "Your Last Wish", though both only marginally so.


8pm: Your Last Wish (New): 7.4 million/3.5 18-49
9pm: Celebrity Road Trip Adventures (New): 8.4 million/2.4 18-49
10: The Witches of West Side (New): 10.1 million/3.0 18-49
11: Jack of All Trades (New): 24.4 million/7.3 18-49

------------------------

Sunday, September 24:

Without the Emmy's pulling viewers away, Gen-TV saw a significant increase on Sunday night, with "Magic School", "Zendaya" and "Unlikely Family" returning to normal numbers. "Awakened", "Shortage" and "Bedroom Stories" all fell flat week to week.

8pm: Magic School (New): 22.4 million/11.3 18-49

Gen-TV Ratings Report:

Monday, September 25, 2017- Sunday, October 1, 2017:

Monday, September 25:

Airing an updated schedule seems to have helped Gen-TV's Monday night, with "Hart of Family" up 20% in demos from last week, and "Homecourt Advantage" up 13% in demos week to week. "Malpractice" shows its first signs of growth ever, jumping up 17% in demos. New series "Climb The Pyramid: Family Edition" hosted by Ben Bailey and Chandra Wilson ("Grey's Anatomy") also provided a nice ratings boost for Gen-TV, debuting to 15.54 million viewers and a 6.3 in demos.

8pm: Climb The Pyramid: Family Edition (New, Series Premiere): 15.54 million/6.3 18-49
830: Hart of Family (New): 23.5 million/7.6 18-49
9pm: Homecourt Advantage (New): 20.4 million/5.19 18-49
930: Threesome (New): 12.9 million/4.4 18-49
10pm: Highly Functioning Adults (New): 16.8 million/6.9 18-49
11pm: Malpractice (New): 14.4 million/3.6 18-49

------------------

Tuesday, September 26:

Just like on Monday, Gen-TV saw a significant ratings bump with an altered schedule. "Ask Alyssa" returned to the lineup and netted 14.4 million viewers and a 3.9 in demos. Down from what "Deadly Visions" got last week in this timeslot, but a solid number all-together. "Deadly Visions" moved to 11pm, where it was seen by 20.5 million viewers and a 4.4 in demos, down from a week ago, but still on-target for this show. "Spaced Out" seems to be a loser, dropping 20% of its viewers in demos from last week.

8pm: The Special Classroom (New): 22.9 million/6.3 18-49
830: Fish Out Of Water (New): 14.2 million/5.4 18-49
9pm: Spaced Out (New): 7.4 million/4.4 18-49

11pm: Deadly Visions (New): 20.5 million/4.4 18-49

------------

Wednesday, September 27:

Wednesday night seems to be a magical night as "Degree of Guilt", already a hit has jumped up nearly 40% in demos, while reruns of "Single Again" significantly outperformed the quickly cancelled third season of "Sisterly Love."

8pm: Making It Work (New): 20.1 million/3.2 18-49
830: Running In Circles (New): 14.9 million/5.5 18-49

11pm: The Plain Land Murders (New): 30.7 million/8.3 18-49

-------------------------

Thursday, September 28:

It was a mixed bag for Gen-TV on Thursday. On the positive side, all four comedies were solid week to week, with "Selling out" and "The Boss Lady" leading the pack. On the downside, the final season of "Mallory's" is falling flat, with ratings dropping significantly week to week.

8pm: Raising Grandma (New): 14.2 million/5.9 18-49
830: Mama Knows Best (New): 14.8 million/5.5 18-49
9: The Boss Lady (New): 21.83 million/5.6 18-49
930: Selling Out (New): 34.9 million/10.4 18-49

11pm: American Citizen (New): 63.9 million/12.9 18-49

----------------------------

Friday, September 29:

Gen-TV must seriously do something to fix their Friday night lineup. Outside of "The Mulroney Mysteries" not much is working here. Reruns of "Trauma Center" were a small band-aid though for the cancelled two series it is replacing.

8pm: Outside The Lines (New): 5.2 million/1.3 18-49
830: Limited Edition (New): 11.4 million/2.4 18-49
9pm: The Mulroney Mysteries (New): 30.4 million/13.8 18-49
10pm: Trauma Center (Rerun): Ratings Not Published
11pm: Trauma Center (Rerun): Ratings Not Published

-----------------------

Saturday, September 30:

Despite no increase in promotion, "Jack of All Trades" jumped up 15% in demos since last week and out of nowhere "The Witches of West Side" leaped upwards, garnering over 22 million viewers and a 5.5 in demos.

8pm: Your Last Wish (New): 8.2 million/4.4 18-49
9pm: Celebrity Road Trip Adventures (New): 10.3 million/3.4 18-49
10: The Witches of West Side (New): 22.8 million/5.5 18-49
11: Jack of All Trades (New): 28.2 million/8.7 18-49

--------------------

Sunday, October 1:

The three returning comedies all showed growth in demos, while reruns of reliable comedies padded the numbers, preventing Gen-TV from losing the night to CBS.

8pm: Magic School (New): 23.4 million/11.5 18-49
830: Zendaya (New): 20.4 million/12.8 18-49
