NBC Orders More 'Timeless' For Monday Nights
NBC has ordered an additional three episodes of their Monday night time-travel drama Timeless, the network announced on Tuesday. With the partial back-order, the network has ordered a total of sixteen episodes for the show's first season.
Timeless has been a strong performer for NBC. Across its four weeks on air, it was the top rated show in it's time slot, beating competition on both ABC and CBS in live+same day. Season-to-date the series is averaging an L7 audience of 10.7 million viewers and a 2.7 A18-49 rating: making it the top-rated 10pm Monday drama in the demo.
The drama series stars Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Visnjic, Sakina Jaffrey, Paterson Joseph, Susanna Thompson and Claudia Doumit.
I quite enjoy Timeless the show adds a bit of fun into sci-fi. And I'm really looking forward to seeing where it's headed (and not be-headed the dreaded cancellation). Nice to see Susanna Thompson (Arrow) in the show. Probably NBC is sitting on the fence with this show adding just 3 additional episodes to its order.

Fox Gives "Lucifer" A Full Season
Fox has handed out a full season order for the second run of its supernatural comedy "Lucifer"
The Warner Bros. TV-produced series, starring Tom Ellis as the bored falling angel who decides to move to Los Angeles and team with a female cop.
The show has been a modest performer in live ratings but scores double-digit gains in Nielsen's L3 and L7 delayed-viewing stats. The show is averaging 6.6 million viewers in Live +7. When multiplatform viewing is factored in, that jumps to 8 million.
Fox's back-nine order brings the show's total episode tally for season two to 22.
Lucifer is quite a fun show, witty and funny, and enjoyable because of Tom Ellis and his chemistry with Lauren German.

Life is about to get flipped, turned Upside Down on “Stranger Things.”
Everyone is back in a trippy new Season 2 production photo, including Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown)! At least, we think so. You might need to flip your computer or phone around to see it.
“Stranger Things” decided to be all cute and post it upside down. The caption, when flipped back around, reads, “Back in production see you next year.”
For everyone who’s having a hard time, Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike Wheeler on the show, also posted the photo in a more easily digestible format. And there’s Eleven right in the middle.
We’ve had hints that Eleven would be back, and TV Line reported the character may even be a series regular in Season 2. But the proof doesn’t get more solid than Wolfhard writing, “#elevenisback.”
Now let’s hope she makes it in time for the Snow Ball. Because Mike doesn’t want to go with a friend. No, not a friend. Someone like ... someone like a ...
Awwww. So cute I wanna die. Just come get me now, Demogorgon. Barb probably needs some friends anyway.
“Stranger Things” Season 2 premieres in 2017.

'Outlander' Season 3 Casts The Dunsany Sisters, Geneva & Isobel
Outlander has cast two more key characters for Season 3 of Starz's hit time-travel saga. Newcomers Hannah James and Tanya Reynolds will play the Dunsany sisters, Geneva and Isobel, respectively.
James' Geneva, the eldest daughter, is as beautiful as she is headstrong. Yet she's also petulant, spoiled and demanding of the servants at their home - Helwater. Geneva's accustomed to getting exactly what she wants when she wants it. Underneath however she has a vulnerability - even a naivete' due to her sheltered life. Reynolds' Isobel, Geneva's younger sister, is warm, friendly and genuine. Though more plain than her sister, Isobel is inherently more likeable and compassionate towards others. In addition to stars Balfe and Heughan, they join new Season 3 cast members Cesar Domboy, Lauren Lyle, Wil Johnson, John Bell and David Berry.
From developer/executive producer Ronald D. Moore and Sony Pictures TV, Season 3 will be based on the third of the eight books in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, entitled Voyager. The third season picks up right after Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948. Now pregnant, she struggles with the fallout of her sudden reappearance and its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank. Meanwhile, in the 18th century, Jamie (Sam Heughan) suffers from the aftermath of his doomed last stand at the historic battle of Culloden, as well as the loss of Claire.
Filming began for the 13-episode Season 3 in August in Scotland and the production will move to South Africa in 2017.

CW Orders More "Legends" Episodes
The CW has ordered an additional four episodes to the second season run of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow". That will bring the show's run to a total of seventeen episodes in its sophomore season.
Though it's the lowest-rated (but most expensive) of the CW's superhero quartet of shows, "Legends" is a healthy performer for the network averaging 2.34 million viewers and a 0.9 rating. The show has improved its time period by 13% among adults 18-49 and 35% in total viewers.
All The CW's other superhero shows have full season orders with "Arrow" and "The Flash" scoring 23 episodes and "Supergirl" nabbing 22 episodes. The CW still hasn't made a decision on the future of its new fall series "No Tomorrow" and "Frequency."
Well, congrats to everyone on "Legends" they certainly look as though they are having a great time on the show.

'Falling Water' Landing Amazon Deal, Eyes Season 2 Renewal At USA
Amazon is finalizing a deal for exclusive subscription VOD rights to Falling Water, USA Network's new supernatural thriller from the late Henry Bromell (Homeland), Brotherhood creator Blake Masters and The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd. The pact is a shot in the arm for the fledgling series and boosts its renewal chances.
Falling Water had an inauspicious ratings start on USA. Possibly a better fit for sibling Syfy than general entertainment network USA, Falling Water has been averaging 450,000 viewers in Live + Same Day. Its viewership has risen above 600,000 in Live +3 with solid 30% + lifts.
With its dense mythology, Falling Water is considered better suited for a streaming service than a traditional network. Additionally, its viewership has been very steady, indicating the show has built a small but devoted fan base, something VOD platforms seek.
If Falling Water is renewed by USA as most indications suggest, it would be the second series on the network saved by an innovative multi-platform deal. It would join comedy Playing House, which now has its premiere on VOD via a pact with Xfinity.
Falling Water tells the story of three unrelated people who slowly realize they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream. The deeper they dig, the more they come to realize that the visions found in the dream just might hold the key to the fate of the world. Lizzie Brochere, David Ajala and Will Yun Lee star.
I'm actually quite enjoying it, I wouldn't go as far to say well the show is excellent. I'm not so sure whether the show is better than Sense8!

Ed Harris Returns For "Westworld" Season 2
The closest thing HBO's "Westworld" has to an antagonist is Ed Harris' brutal black-suited cowboy known only as the Man in Black. He's a guest, a long standing one at the park, who is also one of its most brutal occupants.
Harris' character has spent much of the first season in pursuit of a hidden truth within the game, and it sounds like he'll be continuing that in the show's second season with Harris confirming on BBC Radio 4 that he will be back for the second season:
"Yeah, you know, as a matter of fact, I was just talking to Jonah Nolan last night, who's a creator of this thing with his wife Lisa Joy, and yeah, they're doing another season. They're going to do ten more episodes, and I will be involved."
The first season still has two episodes left to air with plans to get crazier in its few remaining hours. The second season will premiere in either late 2017 or early 2018 on HBO.
Can't believe we're almost at the end of the first season and there won't be another season until 2018. It's gonna be a long wait unfortunately! Fantastic show.

Ed Harris arrives at the "Westworld" screening and panels at The Paley Center For Media's 34th Annual PaleyFest Los Angeles at Dolby Theatre on March 25, 2017 in Hollywood, California.

# 1736 Hiya robbo Dyer need a lodger pay all your bills? Just thought I'd mention it. (Only joking, I've got too much property and a nice dog, Hank).
Anyway, amazing that Ed Harris plays a role like the Man in Black, #Westworld.
Only a couple of days ago, I saw his 2013 film The Face of Love with Annette Bening. He was the dead opposite in that, just like what he was in the film #Stepmom 1998 with Susan Sarandon and Julia Roberts.

# 1737 Hiya Kevin Please don't tell me it's Danny? Yeah Mr. Ed is playing a canny role as the mysterious Man in Black, happy birthday Ed - he's just turned 66 year-old a couple of days ago.
He's a cracking actor, I personally enjoyed as one of my favorite films on his CV, was the mystery movie "Glengarry Glen Ross" (1992) with Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon and Kevin Spacey.
Absolutely as you say a totally different guy for those movies that he was starring in.

The second season premieres on December 16th and picks up with political tensions mounting between Germany and Japan.
