Sunday Ratings: CBS, NBC Both Win the Race

Aside from FOX’s early celebration of Halloween (and a shift in CBS’ schedule), yesterday’s schedule was pretty uneventful. By night’s end, the Eye network was tops with the viewers while the Peacock network was first in the demos.

Sunday Ratings: Cleveland Makes a Show for FOX

There may have been a wedding on Wisteria Lane, but all the attention was on Cleveland last night. Although they pulled in numbers similar to their May finales, Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters both had their lowest-rated premieres to date. Meanwhile, the debut of The Cleveland Show had the best 18-49 start for any FOX comedy since March 2003.

2009 Primetime Emmy Nominations

2009 Emmy nominations

Bright and early this morning, Chandra Wilson and Jim Parsons announced the nominees for the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards.

Just like last year, we saw many first-timers named and a long list of cable acknowledgements (for both pay and basic channels). Thanks to expanded categories, we also saw a number of surprises (Flight of the Conchords, ) and overdue nominations (How I Met Your Mother, Big Love).

For the second year in a row, , with its 16 nominations, topped all drama programs. Meanwhile, 30 Rock broke comedy records with a whopping 22 noms. Overall, HBO was the most-nominated network with 99 mentions while NBC - yes, NBC - came in second.

This year’s ceremony will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris on Sept. 20 on CBS.

Gilles Marini Talks About New Brothers & Sisters Role

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, ABC,

Gilles MariniI’m already looking forward to my Sunday nights this fall.

Gilles Marini recently confirmed to Us Magazine that he has sealed a deal to appear on Brothers & Sisters next season. The gig would keep the Dancing with the Stars contestant on ABC for an undisclosed number of weeks. “I got a call that producers wanted to write a part for me. I’m thrilled it worked out and that I get to prove myself. The writers and I had a long conversation, and they wanted to know who I am, inside and out,” Gilles said. (I’m sure many other women would like to know him inside and out as well….)

In announcing the news, the 33-year-old also revealed a possible spoiler.  “I haven’t met Rachel [Griffiths] yet, but I know it’s going to be a great [partnership].” So does this mean that Sarah will get to make out with another ballroom hunk in a storage room?? (She had a brief fling with ‘s character this past season.)

At this time it’s unclear whether the upcoming sequel is also in Marini’s future. “Hopefully I get a phone call real soon!” Gilles stated.

Brothers & Sisters Targeting Gilles Marini

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, ABC,

Gilles MariniYou have to hand it to the team behind —they know a hot man when they see one.

Earlier this year, the producers nabbed former Dancing with the Stars contestant for a brief (and steamy) storyline with actress Rachel Griffiths. Now they are looking to recruit another ballroom star for the upcoming season.

According to TV Guide, is currently in talks to extend his stay on ABC. Although it’s not exactly known what he be involved in, Cheryl Burke’s partner does reveal that the character would be a possible love match for someone. (Natch!)

As it turns out, Marini would not be the only hunk to guest on that series. Actor Jason Lewis (widely known as Smith Jerrod), has already made several appearances as Chad Barry, Kevin Walker’s former beau.

Sunday Ratings: A Desperate ABC Wins

Okay - let’s try this again. After a week full of Nielsen ratings delays, we’re getting back to business. Thanks to a slate full of finales, CBS had a hold on the viewers last night. ABC, in the meantime, won the oh-so-important demos. (It should be noted though that both networks were beat in the 10:00 hour by NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice.)
