Fast National ratings for Monday, Dec. 2, 2013The last episode of 2013 for "The Blacklist" scored for NBC: Pending updates for an NFL pre-emption in New Orleans, the show delivered its best ratings since its premiere. The final numbers will likely come down a bit, but it should still end the fall on an up note."The Voice" also improved a little on its ratings from last week for NBC. ABC's "CMA Country Christmas" special improved a little on its performance from last year, although "A Charlie Brown Christmas" dropped. CBS' comedy block was up across the board in viewers, while "Almost Human" dipped a little for FOX.NBC averaged 12.35 million viewers and a 7.6 rating/12 share in households for the night, pending NFL updates. It should still end up on top for the night, however, as the Peacock finished well ahead of second-place ABC (7.3 million, 4.6/7). CBS (6.9 million, 4.4/7) came in third, and... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/12/tv-ratings-the-blacklist-ends-2013-on-up-note-cma-country-christmas-rises.html
"How I Met Your Mother" continued its slow march to the Robin-Barney wedding with "The Rehearsal Dinner." This week's few minutes of time featured paintball, an ice rink full of Canadians -- including Alan Thicke -- and some bad Italian.But there's a chance that all of this was upstaged by one anonymous, rapidly aging couple seen only in the background.Paintball vs. an ode to CanadaWhen most couples plan a rehearsal dinner, they go with an intimate, beautiful meal in which close family and members of the wedding party can anticipate the big event. That's not the route that Barney and Robin took.Instead, Barney insists stubbornly that a paintball dinner would be best, because of course he wants a paintball dinner. Robin, meanwhile, wants some sort of Canadian affair. What that means remains something of a mystery, since all of the Canada talk quickly devolves into endless jokes about mittens and Tim Hortons.Still, it seems... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/12/how-i-met-your-mother-canada-alan-thicke-and-a-mystery-couple-at-the-rehearsal-dinner.html

Fast National ratings for Monday, Nov. 25, 2013Monday's ratings were pretty much the definition of a mixed bag. ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" and the final "Castle" of 2013 each grew some over last week. NBC's "The Voice" and FOX's "Sleepy Hollow," however, fell off a bit. "Almost Human" also dipped some for FOX, while NBC's "The Blacklist" was steady with its last airing two weeks ago. "Mike & Molly" and "Mom" are currently up for CBS, but that may change as the network's San Francisco affiliate carried the "Monday Night Football" game for part of primetime.Monday hour by hour:8 p.m.ABC: "Dancing With the Stars" (13.8 million viewers, 8.9/13 households)NBC: "The Voice" (11.3 million, 6.8/10)CBS: "How I Met Your MOther" (8 million, 4.9/7)/"2 Broke Girls" (7.9 million, 4.8/7)FOX: "Almost Human" (6 million, 3.7/5)The CW: "Hart of Dixie" (1 million, 0.7/1)18-49 leader: "The Voice" (3.2)9 p.m.ABC: "Dancing With the Stars" (14.7 million, 9.4/14)NBC: "The Voice" (11.3... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/tv-ratings-castle-rises-monday-but-sleepy-hollow-and-the-voice-drop.html
The all-rhyming episode that "How I Met Your Mother" tried Monday (Nov. 25) had a very high potential for disaster. So would a review of the episode that attempted pull off the same trick.So you're not getting the latter -- and the good news is, "Bedtime Stories" was actually a pretty nice episode of late-period "HIMYM." The conceit -- Marshall has to rhyme to get Marvin to sleep -- worked perfectly well to set up a trio of flashback stories centered on Ted, Robin and Barney.The best of the bunch, by a good distance, was Robin's. Ted's and Barney's were mostly variations on long-running character traits, although seeing the various bros who made up the Players' Roundtable in Barney's story was amusing. Robin's tale, though, imparted some new information: Already down from a breakup, she runs into her ex Simon (James Van Der Beek), who's now engaged, and hits bottom, stealing his wedding cake.Somehow, that... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/how-i-met-your-mother---bedtime-stories-its-tricky-to-rock-a-rhyme.html

Since CBS and 20th Century Fox TV announced a pilot order for a spinoff of "How I Met Your Mother," some conflicting reports on just what form it will take have been floating around.Just how the show, currently titled "How I Met Your Dad," comes together remains to be seen. "HIMYM" creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas can, however, say for sure what it won't be: a retelling of the "How I Met Your Mother" story from the Mother's (Cristin Milioti) point of view."It's not going to be introduced on 'How I Met Your Mother,'" Thomas says. "'How I Met Your Mother' will have its own concise, neat ending, and this will be a whole new show with all new characters. It's not the Cristin Milioti show, it doesn't back up and tell her story -- it's brand new."In that sense, it's probably better to think about "How I Met Your Dad" as something akin... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/how-i-met-your-mother-spinoff-will-be-completely-separate-from-himym-creators-say.html
The cast and crew of "How I Met Your Mother" celebrated the show's 200th episode on Thursday (Nov. 21). Amid the cake-cutting and words of praise for the show, creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas revealed some of what you'll get to see when the episode airs in January."Our 100th episode ['Girls vs. Suits'] was very much a celebration of the cast. Not that the cast doesn't deserve celebrating even more after 200 episodes, but this one is a different kind of story," Bays says. "It's about the story. It was an episode we intended on doing anyway, and it just happened to fall on the 200th. ... But it felt like the right one to do in terms of the greater story of the show."The episode is called "How Your Mother Met Me," and it will detail how the Mother (Cristin Milioti) got to where she is now -- so expect to see references... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/how-i-met-your-mother-creators-tease-200th-episode-whats-coming-in-season-9.html
