What's Hot Today

NBC's Revolution is the Highest Rated Drama Premiere in Three Years

It's getting tough for dramas on network TV these days. People want less intriguing mysteries, and more dancing and singing reality shows. As such, it's interesting to note that NBC's Revolution premiered with the best numbers for a new drama in almost three years. It drew in 11.4M viewers, and the last new show to beat that was V three years ago. But as was the case with V , decent numbers does not mean a lengthy run for a show. The buzz around Revolution has been mixed, though I will say I personally thought it could have been a lot worse. The casting of Billy Burke and Giancarlo Esposito bring it up a level, though obviously, like most shows, I think it is a better concept for cable or somewhere like HBO. How do you have a show about savage life after the world ends, complete with swordfights, and not show a drop of blood during fight scenes? These numbers are probably even higher than what's being said here when you take into account the fact that the pilot was available to watch for free online for a week before the premiere, and it's how many people watched the show, myself included. Why, then, would I feel the need to tune in to the actual premiere live? There really needs to be an updated way to track TV ratings, and Nielsen just keeps getting further and further outdated. Will Revolution last? It's hard to say. There have been many mystery shows that have seemed somewhat promising in the beginning, and you say "this one, this one will be the next Lost ," but as of now, that has yet to happen. I hope Revolution can grow into a great show, but I'm not counting on it. //feedproxy.google.com/~r/tvovermind/tvnews/~3/_IaX8sOxoYA/

Revolution Preview: The Journey Begins

Revolution introduced us to a world with no electricity or power.  For reasons known only to a few people (including Ben Matheson), one night, the world suddenly lost all electricity. The story picked up fifteen years later, when life in the cities is chaos and most people have moved to the country in order to survive in small villages. Governments fell and militias rose, including one belonging to General Monroe.  One day, one of Monroe's soldiers - Captain Neville - rode into town to find Ben Matheson and his brother Miles.  When Ben's son Danny tried to save his father, Ben was shot and killed and Danny was taken.  Before dying, Ben instructed his daughter Charlie to find Miles and save Danny.  Despite some reluctance, Miles agreed to help Charlie find her brother.  Does Miles know why the lights went out?  All we know is that his former friend and fellow solider is now General Monroe, and he's convinced that Miles knows something important. In next week's Revolution, "In order to rescue Danny (Graham Rogers), Miles (Billy Burke) knows he and the gang will need help. Thus, the search begins for Nora (Daniella Alonso), a rebel fighter battling against the Militia. Meanwhile, Aaron (Zak Orth) confides in Maggie (Anna Lise Phillips) and Danny lays witness to what Captain Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) is capable of." Watch a preview below for the September 24 episode of Revolution, airing at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on NBC. //feedproxy.google.com/~r/tvovermind/tvnews/~3/2et9ETGEDTA/

20 Burning Questions From the Revolution Premiere

I can't say I was surprised that the premiere of Revolution Monday night left me with far more questions than answers (after all, the series is produced by Lost mastermind J.J. Abrams ).

Until then, here are the 20 biggest questions that will be...  //www.tvguide.com/News/Revolution-Burning-Questions-1053147.aspx?rss=breakingnews

'Revolution's' Giancarlo Esposito: ' We are forgetting what we know'

On "Revolution," producer J.J. Abrams' epic drama coming to NBC Monday, Sept. 17, there's a worldwide blackout.Unlike most, the lights don't go back on. Ever.However, there are deeply hidden and coveted vestiges of electricity.

Tom Neville, tells Zap2it. "People feel like we are in danger of the end of the world, and doom and gloom. And the show is about the end of an old way of thinking and a new dawn blooming.

Elizabeth Mitchell on whether 'Revolution' is the next 'Lost' and her Jon Favreau crush

Elizabeth Mitchell knows that her new NBC series "Revolution" is going to be compared to "Lost." How can it not? It's a big epic adventure drama with a strong central mystery, executive produced by J.J. Abrams. And Mitchell remains best known for playing "Lost's" badass fertility doctor Juliet Burke. But she's not worried about the show's ability to handle those comparisons."I simply just don't think about it too much," Mitchell says. "I feel for the showrunners, I really do, I feel like all of that is pretty much on them. But for me, I'm just happy that networks are still making these big budget extraordinary shows so that I can be in them!" And with that she erupts into one of her hearty laughs, one clear sign she's having a blast playing the pivotal role of Rachel Matheson on "Revolution."The series takes place 15 years after a worldwide blackout, as Rachel's spunky teenage daughter Charlie... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/09/elizabeth-mitchell-on-whether-revolution-is-the-next-lost-and-her-jon-favreau-crush.html
