Will Neil Patrick Harris pave the way for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to host the Oscars?
One thing that was perceived to hold Harris back -- besides him formerly being a CBS star — was that he had hosted too many other awards shows. But with Harris now hosting the Oscars, it can open up the prospect of the Academy Awards selecting Tina and Amy, who’ve been hosting the Oscars’ competitor, the Golden Globes.


It’s about time Archie Panjabi leaves “The Good Wife”
"Kalinda remains a kickass and reliable investigator in impressive boots,” says Willa Paskin, "but it has been a long time since we saw her do anything besides track down impossible information and sexually appeal to everyone she encounters, of either gender. Six seasons in, it’s easy to imagine that an actress might be looking for something meatier to play than 'low-burn smoldering.’” PLUS: Season 4 was when Kalinda started becoming less interesting, and how should Kalinda exit?

Big questions for every new movie in the 'Justice League' universe

They're both following Marvel and challenging them at the same time

When Ben Fritz began live-tweeting today's Warner Bros. stockholder's meeting and the details began to emerge about Warner's full planned line-up of superhero DC titles, fandom went crazy.

If you need any indicator of where Warner's heart is in all of this, consider that they could have easily made this announcement at the New York Comic-Con over the weekend in front of a room full of people who would have lost their minds to be getting all of this information in one massive info-dump. Instead, they did this for the shareholders to reassure them that they've got a plan.

Watch Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones vindicate the existence of 'Theory of Everything'

Why the Stephen Hawking biopic isn't a mere science lesson.

"We all have the sense of Stephen Hawking, the icon," Eddie Redmayne says in an explanatory video for the science-minded biopic, "The Theory of Everything." What fewer people know, according to the Best Actor candidate, is the life before Hawking published "A Brief History of Time" catapulted the wheelchair-bound scientist to mainstream fame. For instance, Redmayne was not aware that Hawking's motor neuron disease only began inhibiting him while pursuing a doctorate in his twenties. We forgive you, Eddie — mostly because there's even more to discover in "Theory of Everything" than the straight-forward facts.

TV Ratings: 'Flash' zips past ABC, FOX as 'Marry Me' helps normal Tuesday split

NBC tops the key demo while 'NCIS' leads CBS overall

Fast National ratings for Tuesday, October 14, 2014.

The second week of "The Flash" kept The CW in third place for Tuesday in the key demo as the impressively steady "NCIS: New Orleans" helped CBS win the night overall and the "Voice"-boosted "Marry Me" premiere contributed to NBC's win among young viewers.

The drop for "The Flash" was easily within expectations and still led into another strong showing for "Supernatural."

ABC got most of Tuesday's negative news with the flattish "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." as the night's lone bright spot. "Selfie" was down to The Mulaney Line (a 1.0 in the key demo), "Manhattan Love Story" remained below The Line and dipper in viewers and "Forever" continued its steady slip.

FOX's comedies were also in a low place, as repeats in the 8 p.m. hour put the network itself below The Mulaney Line for Tuesday.

On to the numbers...
