Default Gen-TV UpFronts 2017-Primetime Schedule

Gen-TV Networks
Fall 2017 Schedule
Gen-TV Network


Gen-TV Network has formally announced it’s Fall 2017-2018 schedule, and the new line-up includes a number of high profile changes and risky moves.

Among the bold moves the network has in store is moving smash hit children’s series “Magic School” and “Zendaya” out of their Monday night timeslots and into a Sunday night timeslot. Moving TV’s #1 rated drama “The Mallory’s of Jefferson County” from Thursdays to Wednesdays, and benching returning dramas “Sisters” and “Boston Homicide” until mid-season.

In addition to returning series, the network has ordered seventeen new series for fall, and has an additional five on hold for mid-season. The new series are comprised of six comedies and sixteen dramas. There is also one reality program as well. Among the highlights of the new series are Nick Cannon in a new family comedy “Homecourt Advantage”, “Jack of All Trades”, a spin-off of “Deadly Visions” starring Stephen Weber and, six-week mini-series, “American Citizen”, a timely political drama about a revered and highly respected Iranian-American actress who finds herself facing her worst nightmare; being accused of terrorism and denied entry back into the US. Yasmine Al Massari (Quantico) will star as Alena, the actress; and Academy Award Nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo will play Amari, her mother and a respected attorney trying to get her back into the country, only to face her own legal issues as well.


Gen-TV's President Ross Chin presented this schedule to advertisers along with Vice President Alex Montez and Cain Wentworth, the chairperson of Gen-TV's Board of Directors. The lavish presentation was held at New York's Regency Plaza Hotel and was simulcast live to Los Angeles at a crowded reception at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Tuesday, April 11:


Gen-TV had a strong night on Tuesday, with "Making It Work" increasing in demos by nearly 15% and "Ask Alyssa" growing in all measurements. "Peretti Rules" retained most of its audience and "Sisterly Love" only decreased a minor amount in demos. The one let-down was that "Places We Go" lost a significant portion of its audience in both demos and total viewers.

8pm: Making It Work (New): 14.3 million/4.9 18-49

830: Peretti Rules (New): 7.1 million/4.6 18-49

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

Wednesday, April 12:

Gen-TV's comedies "Unlikely Family", "Running In Circles" and "Selling Out" were all home-runs this week, retaining the majority of its audience, and in the case of "Selling Out", growing ever so slightly in demos. Meanwhile, "Desperately Amy", filling in for the cancelled "The Heist" netted a better return with 1.23 million viewers and a .94 in demos. Still, not enough to prevent Gen-TV from losing the half-hour. "Boston Homicide" continues to collapse, all but officially sealing the fate of a once highly performing series. "Cop City" continued to perform above expectations and grew in demos.



8pm: Unlikely Family (New): 35.2 million/6.5 18-49

830: Running In Circles (New): 14.83 million/4.1 18-49

9: Selling Out (New): 40.48 million/14.8 18-49

11: Cop City (New): 26.4 million/4.9 18-49
--------------------

Thursday, April 13:

Gen-TV seems to have a recurring theme going; as Thursday comedies "Raising Grandma", "Mama Knows Best" and "Cooking For Dummies" all performed to expectations while drama "The Malones" was all but nonexistent. "The Mallory's of Jefferson County" of course outperformed every other show on TV. Meanwhile, "Nicki J's World" rebounded somewhat from last week's 40% loss and netted a 7.4/3.6 in demos.

8pm: Raising Grandma (New): 24.2 million/6.9 18-49

830: Mama Knows Best (New): 25.5 million/9.2 18-49

11: The Malones (New): 4.0 million/1.3 18-49
--------------------------

Friday, April 14:

Friday night continues to be a solid performer for Gen-TV, with every series, except "ColdFront" retaining its audience from last week. "The Mulroney Mysteries" and "Deadly Visions" continue to grow each week.

8pm: The Mulroney Mysteries (New): 39.5 million/9.3 18-49

9pm: Deadly Visions (New): 39.4 million/7.1 18-49

Saturday, April 15:

Once again, Saturday was a success with "Sisters" and "Code of Ethics" performing on-par with last week. The much anticipated TV movie "Fugitive Recovery: At Arm's Length" debuted to stellar reviews and fantastic ratings, netting 23.9 million viewers and a 8.3 in demos.

Monday, April 24:

Gen-TV Monday was another winner, with "Zendaya" pulling ahead of "Magic School" for the first time since the fall and "Outside The Lines" showing signs of life in demos. The "Blood Relations" series finale was watched by almost nobody however, a disappointing end to a once promising series.

-----------

Friday, April 28:

"Soapless: Life After Daytime" is working overtime to earn a season 2 renewal and it looks likely with ratings like this, which grew exponentially week to week. Friday was a strong night with "Mulroney Mysteries" surging upwards and posting demos over a 10.3! The under publicized series finale of "ColdFront" was more successful than "Blood Relations" earlier in the week, but still a letdown.

8pm: The Mulroney Mysteries (New): 29.5 million/10.5 18-49

9pm: Deadly Visions (New): 40.1 million/8.4 18-49

10: ColdFront (New; Series Finale!): 12.3 million/5.2 18-49

Gen-TV Monday was another winner, with "Zendaya" pulling ahead of "Magic School" for the first time since the fall and "Outside The Lines" showing signs of life in demos. The "Blood Relations" series finale was watched by almost nobody however, a disappointing end to a once promising series.

"Selling Out" posts its first decrease of the season, dropping .25% in demos and "Desperately Amy" suddenly capitalizes on its lead-in, growing to an almost respectable demo.

Friday, April 28:

"Soapless: Life After Daytime" is working overtime to earn a season 2 renewal and it looks likely with ratings like this, which grew exponentially week to week. Friday was a strong night with "Mulroney Mysteries" surging upwards and posting demos over a 10.3! The under publicized series finale of "ColdFront" was more successful than "Blood Relations" earlier in the week, but still a letdown.

8pm: The Mulroney Mysteries (New): 29.5 million/10.5 18-49

Default After UpFronts

How Gen-TV's Pilots Rated With Advertisers
---The effects of UpFronts on Gen-TV's Fall Series

Although many viewers believe the reason for Fall UpFronts is simply to let them know about the network's fall schedules; those in the know realize the true reason for this is to let advertisers plan their spending for the fall season. Gen-TV Studios held their UpFront's Presentation on May 5th, nearly a week and a half earlier than rival networks YTN, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and CW. In this article, Hollywood Insider discusses with wall street insiders, TV industry experts, and studio representatives the impact that Gen-TV's presentation has had on their fall pilots and returning series so far. We will find out which pilots are garnering top ad buys, which ones are fizzling out and how this is impacting the network's returning series.

Reporting done by Adam Horvith and James Jenson for Hollywood Insider with additional research done by David St. Onge and Cameron Claire. We start by discussing Gen-TV's fall pilots and the mixed successes and failures we're seeing so far.

The High Fliers:

Among this elite group of pilots are the four that seem to be gaining the most traction among ad buyers and among TV critics as a whole. These special series are getting the most ad dollars so far and are poised to capitalize on critical success with boffo ratings.

The first is drama pilot "Degree of Guilt" which stars Ryan Phillippe and Riz Ahmed and centers on a Us Attorney (Phillippe) who finds himself embroiled in a political conspiracy following testimony he gives that gets the US President and Vice President impeached. Riz Ahmed co-stars as a shady attorney hired by Phillipe's character to clear his name amid a treason investigation. This character is described as "an autistic man with limited social skills but a savant-like knowledge of the legal system, who has developed a career helping shady people get out of shady situations."

This pilot is among the four elite pilots that have generated both high critical praise and top ad buys so far. Critics have called this pilot "Brilliant", "A game-changer" and "the best political thriller in decades." Advertisers have responded to the praise by heaping ad dollars on it. According to James Smith, a top ad buyer in New York, "Degree of Guilt is the pilot to watch this season, it is generating the most ad dollars so far." According to our estimates, the ad rate for this pilot is being set at around 2.1 million dollars per thirty-second ad. This would make it among the most expensive series for advertisers to put their commercials in. This certainly gives the series a chance at succeeding too; so long as it can sustain ratings high enough to justify this level of ad-buys.

Comedy pilot, "The Boss Lady" starring Kristen Wiig is another big hit with advertisers this season; generating an estimated 1.2 million ad rate per 30-second spot. This would rate it as the most expensive new comedy for advertisers and the #3 most expensive comedy on all of TV, following CBS's "The Big Bang Theory" and ABC's "Modern Family." Critics have warmly embraced this pilot calling it "zany and hysterical; Kristen Wiig at her zany best"; "A welcome distraction from the world today" and "An expertly crafted masterpiece of physical comedy."

Also in the elite group is drama pilot "Call & Response", which is generating significant response from advertisers as having "mass audience appeal", "long-term future written all over it" and "a clear path to becoming a long-term fixture on network TV; a clear front-runner for a lucrative syndication deal down the road." It has apparently generated an ad rate of around 900,000 per 30-second spot; one of the higher for a new drama. Critics have been supportive of this pilot, but not outlandishly so, with most describing it as "A solid procedural that wisely sprinkles in just enough soapy melodrama to be engaging."

And lastly, six-week mini-series "American Citizen" is garnering massive critical support; with one critic calling it "a decade defining masterpiece that will go down in history as the gold standard of TV drama for this era." Another critic called it "This generation's most important TV drama; it will do today what Roots did in the 1970's." Ad buyers are generally supportive too, with the current ad rate set at close to 899,000 per 30-second spot.


"The Ad Losers":

This group of pilots is among those that may or may not have critical support but are not generating top ad buys, for vastly different reasons.

Highly Functioning Adults, a hybrid comedy-drama set in the world of Philadelphia drug dealing is getting critical support but is not yet grabbing top ad buys. The problem here seems to be the adult content and edgy writing; which don't lend itself to mass audience appeal. The series is a niche series, that many see as having a narrow market. Though critics are hailing it as a creative success, ad buyers are scared to invest in such an edgy series. It has so far garnered an ad rated close to 80,000 dollars per 30-second spot. The future of this series is still unclear because if it is a surprise success with viewers advertisers may become less afraid of supporting it. According to TV insider Stephanie Sanders, "If a series is a clear hit with audiences than advertisers will become less hesitant to support its edgy content." "One example of this is Family Guy, which was not generating top ad buys until it became a cultural phenomenon in its third season." "It is now one of the top shows among advertisers."

Children's comedy, "Fish Out of Water" is also not faring well with either critics or buyers. Critics have decried it as "worthless", "idiotic" and "sure to dumb down the minds of children everywhere." Advertisers simply aren't seeing the potential calling it "unlikely to succeed" and "a waste of ad dollars."

Lastly, "Limited Edition" also seems to be a misfire for Gen-TV; as critics call it "a crass and unoriginal rip-off of ABC's Speechless" and "An overly sentimental pile of junk." Ad buyers aren't responding at all, and its ad rate is currently well below 60,000 dollars.

Returning Series:

The impact of UpFronts also impacts Gen-TV's returning series; with returning drama "Mulroney Mysteries" garnering massive increases in its ad buys. A Gen-TV Rep explains "Mulroney Mysteries became the surprise hit of the season and has seen an increase in its ad rate from 50,000 per spot to 150,000 per ad spot." Similarly, "Deadly Visions" saw its ad rates increase from 91,000 to 210,000 per spot. A combination of timeslot change and ratings information has negatively impacted returning comedy "Outside the Lines" as its ad rated decreased from 110,000 per spot to 40,000 per spot; making it the least expensive show on TV and from a network perspective also one of the least important for them. The only bright spot for keeping this show is a lucrative sponsorship deal with NASCAR which has underwritten most of the series season.

A big story for Gen-TV this past season was the failure of "The Malones", a spin-off from "Mallory's of Jefferson County" which tanked fast and hard. This struggle has spilled over to its mother show which saw its ad rated decrease from 4.4 million per spot (the most expensive on TV) to just under 1.4 million per spot. This was also due to softening ratings for the series, which is entering its sixth season. The massive reduction still places "Mallory's" among the most expensive series on TV, but clearly reduces its importance to ad buyers.

Default Gen-TV Retrospective

Gen-TV's Longest Running Series:
A Look Back At 8 Years of Successes

When Gen-TV Network starts airing its 2017-2018 Fall schedule, it will mark the networks 9th season on the air, and it will mark the landmark 12th season of "Sisters", currently the longest running drama in Gen-TV history; and second overall program. This huge achievement and others like it will be the subject of a brand new documentary airing on Gen-TV Networks this summer. The documentary produced, directed and narrated by Ross Chin, Gen-TV's President takes a look back at over 40 of the network's most successful and longest-running programming. Using a list format, it ranks the series featured on the special, by the length of how long it ran (in terms of seasons; although it also mentions how many episodes each program produced.)

The special is scheduled to air on July 2017 on Gen-TV Network and will be made available to stream on Stream-ME shortly thereafter. Hollywood Now takes a look at the networks longest running programs (as of Fall 2017):

1. Over My Head-- 13 Seasons: Hard to believe, but this zany and at times outright absurd sitcom starring Soliel Moon Frye, Pamela Anderson, Casper Van Dien and a bunch of kids ran for 13 seasons and produced over 300 episodes. This show described at the time of its premiere as "The Nanny meets Just Shoot Me" certainly proved all the critics wrong; reinvigorating the acting careers of its main stars; Soliel Moon Frye (Punky Brewster), Pamela Anderson (Baywatch) and Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers) and defying the odds to become not only an audience favorite but a critical favorite as well, even eventually earning top awards from Emmy and Golden Globe.

2. Sisters- 12 Seasons: As of Fall 2017, Sisters will enter its 12th and possibly, final season. This fact is no surprise to anybody who has paid attention. Sisters was a smash hit right out of the gate, and at its prime set a new rating record when a 2012 episode of the series garnered the largest single-episode rating ever recorded for a broadcast series; over 58 million viewers. But ratings and critical support, of which it had many were never what made Sisters so important. Sisters most important aspect was its cultural impact. This series hit the zeitgeist like no other series in recent history has; and even had some political impact on the Gay Rights Movement. In October 2012, President Barack Obama mentioned "Sisters" as one of the "most culturally important factors in helping average Americans understand and learn about the transgender community." This is a moment that occurred well before shows like "Transparent" or "Orange Is the New Black" entered the cultural landscape. The series has also done something else miraculous, it has sustained a large and devoted audience for 12 seasons; even with a small ratings dip in seasons 5, 6 and 9. The series was able to recover from those drops and still continually racks up demos of over 5.2 weekly.

3. Detective Mom- 8 Seasons: This unlikely comedy continued to defy all odds as it ran for 8 critical acclaimed seasons and improved its performance in demos every season. In fact, this comedy about a single mom turned private detective only got canceled due to economic factors at Gen-TV Studios; and its cancellation was called by a Gen-TV Executive "The most painful decision we've ever had to make." The series, however, continues to get the last laugh, raking in millions in syndication dollars every day and ranking as one of the top 10 most watched syndicated sitcoms on TV.

4. Interviews with Sandra Bernhardt/Interviews Starring John Fugelsang- 8 Seasons: If Gen-TV's success stories prove anything it is that sometimes unlikely concepts become big hits. Such is the case with this long-running reality series, which defied every known convention of TV and became a big fat reality TV hit. The premise of this show is pretty simple, an interview series featuring comedian and actress Sandra Bernhardt asking outrageous, hard hitting and oftentimes invasive questions of celebrities, while also presenting an in-depth profile on that subject. The simple concept worked and quickly became a signature series for Gen-TV. So much so, it is still airing in syndicated reruns throughout the country. This series would probably still be airing were it not for a contract snag between Bernhardt and Gen-TV that caused the comedian to exit the series. She was replaced by John Fugelsang who changed the format of the show to be more politically inclined, and that incarnation which aired live lasted only a short time.

5. Critically Speaking with Joe Levy/Critically Speaking Starring John Fugelsang- 7 Seasons: This very unconventional reality series broke every barrier and created a brand new way to present a biographical series about musicians. It featured two distinct parts: the first half, an interview segment similar to "Inside The Actors Studio" in which Levy, a former editor for "Rolling Stone" presents a biographical interview with the subject. The second half, in which a panel of musical experts (and sometimes fans) asks the subject questions about their career and discusses the historical impact of that artist. This frank, honest and passionate series became a surprise hit out of the gate and racked up 7 consecutive Emmy nominations for "Outstanding Reality Series-Structured"; winning three. Even the final season and a half with John Fugelsang earned critical support.

Those were Gen-TV's six most successful programs ever, and under them are a group of series that ran for 5-6 seasons each. Those programs which include "Doctor/Patient", "The Arrival", "One Of These Days", "This Time Around" and "Boyfriends" will be profiled in full during the televised special.

Default Gen-TV's Emmy Strategy 2017

Gen-TV Reveals Emmy Submissions:
---Network unveils stars and shows competing for Emmy

The 2017 Emmy Award nominations will be revealed in July and if Ross Chin and Alex Montez have their way, Gen-TV series and stars will be among the prestigious nominees. Speaking candidly to Entertainment Tonight on Thursday, Chin said "Seeing our shows win Emmy Awards is a big goal for me as President of Gen-TV." "I want Gen-TV to stand for quality and prestige." "I want Gen-TV to be associated with the very best of television."

Here is the full list of series and performers Gen-TV has submitted for consideration for Emmy nominations, broken down into categories:

COMEDY:

Outstanding Comedy Series:

Threesome (Executive Producers: Will Calhoun, Michael Tollin)

Running In Circles (Executive Producers: Mary Allison Moore, David Adams Mills, Caryn Mandell)

Singles (Executive Producers: Keegan-Michael Key, Leigh-Anne Smith)

Into The Wild (Executive Producers: Jeff "Jiffy" Wild; Marcy Carsey, Tom Werner, Caryn Mandabach)

Raising Grandma (Executive Producers: Suzanne De Passe, Madison Jones, Susan Jones)

Sisterly Love (Executive Producers: Bonnie Turner, Terry Turner, Marcy Carsey, Tom Werner)

Molly Says (Executive Producers: Lorne Michaels, Molly Shannon, Robert Carlock)

Selling Out (Executive Producers: Tina Fey, Robert Carlock, Lorne Michaels, Beth McCarthy-Miller, Paula Pell)

Zendaya (Executive Producers: Mara Brock Akil, Michelle Larkin, Zendaya Coleman)

Mama Knows Best (Executive Producers: Yvette Lee Bowser, Addy Howard, and Patti Labelle)

Every Other Weekend (Executive Producers: Emily Kapnek, Michael Fresco)

Peretti Rules (Executive Producers: Chelsea Peretti, Jordan Peele and Amy Paradias)


Among the surprise omissions from this list: Gen-TV has opted not to submit the final season of "I Said So" or to submit "Nicki J's World". Also shocking, the inclusion of "Singles" here, when the network canceled that show for "creative problems." "Outside The Lines" also was not submitted in this category.


Outstanding Drama Series:

Law & Order: Hate Crimes (Executive Producers: Dick Wolf, Carol Mendelson, Jonathan Littman)

Law & Order: New York City (Executive Producers: Dick Wolf, Neal Baer and Erica Mancini.)

Deadly Visions (Executive Producers: Stephen Spielberg, Glenn Gordon Carron and Tiffany Jarrod-Abraham)

The Malones (Executive Producers: Gabrielle Gifford, John Tramm, Patricia Shephard, Neil Marcus)

Grand Champion (Executive Producers: Stephen Soderberg, Brian Grazer, Ridley Scott, Maxwell Rothchild and Elliot Scott)

Cop City (Executive Producers: David Shore; Sylvester Stallone)

Hollywood Law (Executive Producers: Amelia Kelley, David Angelo Hart)

Law & Order: Immigration (Executive Producers: Dick Wolf, Barbara Mattison, and Antonia Markum)

Love Affair (Executive Producers: Neal Marlens, Carol Black, Kate Walsh)

Trauma Center (Executive Producers: David Aaman, Christy Leigh McPherson)

The Crusader (Executive Producer: Joss Whedon)

The big omissions from this list are District Attorney and Boston Homicide. The biggest surprise inclusion is the extremely poorly received Law & Order: Immigration. A show Ross Chin once called "an embarrassment all the way."

Monday, May 15th Ratings - YTN
At 9pm, the third season premiere of Living in Fear scared up 4.26 million viewers and 1.1/3 among adults 18-49, down three tenths from last seasons premiere, but up a tenth from the finale. This is the shows first episode to air without the lead in of Fear Factor and its first original episode in the 9 o'clock hour. Half hour: 1.066/1.101

At 10pm, the fifth season premiere of long-waiting-to-air Serial (the fourth season finale aired in May 2016) returned with 4.85 million viewers and 1.2/3 among adults 18-49, also down three tenths from last seasons premiere (and two tenths from the finale). Given how long the show has been off the air, to come within striking distance of its season four average (1.26) is pretty remarkable. This was also the smallest season premiere-to-season premiere drop in the shows history. Half hour: 1.155/1.150



Tuesday, May 16th Ratings - YTN
At 8pm, the seventh season premiere of The Neighborhood notched 7.21 million viewers and 2.1/6 among adults 18-49, its lowest season premiere ever (previous: 2.5 in season four). This is a show that typically has weird bounces week-to-week, but a slow start could be damaging for YTN's highest rated summer series. Half hour: 2.056/2.212

At 9pm, the series premiere of Miami Medical Examiner debuted to 7.02 million viewers and 1.3/4 among adults 18-49. The series premiere held a very strong percentage of total viewers from its lead in, but skewed much older too. Overall, not a terrible start for the new summer drama. Half hour: 1.381/1.205

At 10pm, the second season premiere of Bloodlines came back with 5.98 million viewers and 1.0/3, down a tenth from last years summer debut and finale. Again, not a terrible return for the show, since it no longer has the advantage of The Neighborhood lead in, too. This does tie the shows series low (set on May 31, 2016 - 5.3 million viewers, 1.0 demo). Half hour: 0.985/0.953



Wednesday, May 17th Ratings - YTN
At 8pm, the series premiere of 30 Seconds to Win stalled out of the gate with 4.27 million viewers and 0.8/3 among adults 18-49. Half hour: 0.784/0.787

At 9pm, the sixth season premiere of Locked, which has been off the air for over a year (May 1, 2016 was its season five finale) scored 3.86 million viewers and 0.7/3 among adults 18-49. The game show is down five tenths from its February 2016 debut, and four tenths from its finale. It also marks a new low for the show, breaking the previous 0.8 low - set two times before (February 28, 2016 and March 27, 2016). Half hour: 0.716/0.682

YTN aired repeats in the 10 o'clock hour.



Thursday, May 18th Ratings - YTN
At 8pm, the fifth season premiere of Extended Family garnered 5.06 million viewers and 1.0/3 among adults 18-49, down a tenth from both its year ago premiere and its season finale. Unrounded: 1.016

At 830pm, a new episode of Raising Teenagers kicked off the second half of season five with 4.81 million viewers and 0.9/3 among adults 18-49, down a tenth from its December mid-season finale, but in line with its season average. Unrounded: 0.859

At 9pm, a new episode of Friends of Mine also returned after a long hiatus with 4.15 million viewers and 1.0/3 among adults 18-49, setting a new series low (previous: 3.85 million / 1.1 demo on December 1, 2016). Unrounded: 1.041

At 930pm, the official series premiere of UpSelling (although technically the third episode to air) totaled 4.47 million viewers and 1.0/3 among adults 18-49, down two tenths from its last sneak preview episode. Unrounded: 1.038

At 10pm, the series premiere of docu-drama Life after Prison launched to 3.72 million viewers and 0.7/3 among adults 18-49. Half hour: 0.734/0.739



Friday May 19th Ratings - YTN
Four episodes of Outdoor Renovation, as follows:
8pm - 1.84 million (0.3 demo) <--- ties series low (August 18, 2016 and September 1, 2016)
830pm - 1.95 million (0.4 demo)
9pm - 1.97 million (0.4 demo)
930pm - 1.92 million (0.4 demo)

At 10pm, episode four of now-cancelled XXX: My Life Story was forgotten about with 1.01 million viewers and 0.3/1 among adults 18-49, down seven tenths from its last new episode on January 30, 2017 (2.7 million / 1.0 demo). Half hour: 0.295/0.271

Gen-TV Announces More Emmy Contenders
---Network confirms submissions for 2017 Emmy Awards


Last week, Hollywood Now confirmed with Gen-TV Studios the submissions they have made in the leading acting categories for the 2017 Emmy Awards. Today, the studio have confirmed several more contenders they have submitted in those categories, plus the full list of submissions they have made in the supporting categories and the reality and talk categories.

Newly confirmed submissions for LEAD ACTRESS, COMEDY, which come from their first-run series, "Single Again". The studio has submitted Jasmine Guy, Kim Fields and Robin Givens in the leading category for this series while submitting Elise Neal and Kim Coles in Supporting Actress. This decision was based on air-time and not preference says a studio rep.

In the LEAD ACTRESS, DRAMA category, the studio is confirming submissions for the leads of "Faded Beauties", Heather Locklear, Nia Pebbles, and Serena Scott Thomas. Though it is very unlikely this show will garner any attention from Emmy voters.

Gen-TV has also confirmed submission placements for the ladies of "Mallory's of Jefferson County" and "The Malones", which were still being decided last week, they are as follows, in LEAD ACTRESS we have, Susan Sullivan for "The Malones", she will not compete for "Mallory's" this year, per Emmy rules preventing a performer from getting two nominations for the same role in a single year. Also submitted from "Mallory's" are Gena Rowlands and Raquel Welch who will compete in LEAD for the first time. For "The Malones" are Lindsay Wagner, Jill Eikenberry, Dana Delaney and Rhada Mitchell. While, Chloe Sevigny, Kim Cattrall, Lauren Stamile and Sarah Jane Morris will compete in Supporting Actress.

Other confirmations today are that Sandra Bullock, Thora Birch and Julia Roberts will compete in LEAD for "Grand Champion", with other cast members competing in Supporting. Dustin Hoffman, Bruce Willis and Jon Bertnhal will compete in LEAD while, the remaining will compete in Supporting.

Thumbs up 2016-17 SEASON FINAL RATINGS

18-49 DEMOGRAPHIC
Since the series premiered, Call Girls has been the top dog on YTN, and that story remains the same this season. While it did lose a bit of ground for the first time in three seasons, it was far and away number one for the network - and easily the top drama in its timeslot.

Moving to its own timeslot this season was no trouble for CIA Files, which dipped an okay 16%. Given it aired only 16 episodes at midseason, behind Call Girls last season, that hold is rather remarkable. It was also only 0.04 tenths ahead of a still-surging Virus. The serial drama jumped a whopping 25%, led by a series high 4.1 for its season premiere.

Another major story for YTN was resurgence of Looking for Love this spring. Falling to series lows in the fall, it suddenly reversed course and scored its best numbers in over three years. This is the furthest gap between a fall and spring season and is the first time *ever* the spring season finished ahead of the fall one.

For the rest of the bunch, it was a lot of the same: down, down, down. An astounding 15 series were down by more than 20% year-to-year, almost double the number from last season (8). Additionally, five of those 15 were down by more than thirty percent in a single year.

The biggest loser was now-cancelled Beneath it All and Secret Service, both down 36%. Beneath it All debuted last season to average numbers, but the bottom fell out from the very beginning of season two. As for Secret Service, it continued its downward trend before being tossed onto Fridays, where it recorded several 0.6 demos. Those steep drops were followed by now-summer-comedy Friends of Mine (down 35%), sophomore Blended (down 33%), and renewed Family Super Challenge (down 30%).

One side note is the remarkable tie between Life Lessons and TAKEN: Phoenix, which each tied with a 1.634615. Additionally, Beneath it All and Looking for Love 15 (fall) were close: 1.62 vs. 1.616.

Beneath it All was the highest rated cancellation and Family Super Challenge was the lowest rated renewal.


TOTAL VIEWERS
In viewership land, things looked pretty similar: a lot of shows on the downward trend, with only two rising (Looking for Love and Virus)

For the first time in a long time, Call Girls has some competition for its most watched YTN series belt, leading CIA Files by about 500,000 viewers. The race between the two should remain interesting next season.

Only four shows were down by more than 20% among total viewers, further indicating that television is skewing much older. Similar to the demo, the drops belonged to Beneath it All (down 35%), Friends of Mine (down 32%), Racially Divided (down 31%), and Blended (down 27%).

The older skew was evidenced no further than the new Sunday night comedy block. While tentpole hours Full Time Mom and Mother & Daughter were each down by ~25% in the demo, they were down only 1% and 10%, respectively, in total viewers.

In either measure, only one show was even year-to-year, and that title belongs to Suburbia. Looking at more than a few digits, the decline is actually 0.02%, but that is as good as even in our books!

At the bottom of the list are two series that previously aired on the YTN streaming service; High Times of Denver and They Are Out There. While at the bottom among total viewers, High Times of Denver cracked the top ten (#10) in the demo race. YTN often cites it as the youngest skewing series on its network, and that is evident here.

TAKEN: Global bit the dust despite a ninth place finish among total viewers and was easily the most-watched cancellation in the last few years for YTN.

Gen-TV Studios has confirmed today that they have signed Jennifer Garner, Hillary Swank, Halle Berry, and Jennifer Aniston to co-star in the limited-series soap opera about an upscale gated community in Los Angeles that is home to movie stars, athletes, TV stars, musicians and people from other high profile occupations that is rocked by scandal and murder.

Swank, recently starred in the Gen-TV crime drama "Code of Ethics" which was canceled after one season, her lucrative development deal with Gen-TV also ended, but she quickly accepted an offer to star on this program after reading the script provided to her by a Gen-TV executive. This will be the first time that Gen-TV has worked with Garner or Berry; Aniston previously co-starred on season one of "The Plain Land Murders."
