Kimmel, whose show is based in Hollywood, is in New York taping his show there this week. "The Late Show with David Letterman" and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" are still on schedule to tape today. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have opted out of taping tonight's shows, Deadline reports.
Brutal first night DNC ratings and tonight, NFL starts...ouch!!! the mainstream spin is using the combined total on all channels and comparing (I admit, nice, but NOPE)...
Forget Honey Boo Boo, most things on TV last night beat the DNC...had to hear that last week, so equal time...NBC won the networks with 5.3 million, then CBS with 3.2 mil and ABC with 2.5...Brutal..cable coming. See, NBC wins the nets and will NOT be airing it tonight so they lose that chunk, too..who had the worse ratings???? a rerun on NCIS had 7 mil. AGT had 8.6 mil...see how silly that was last week??? head-to-head, NBC wins...that is all that really matters..but let's see if mainstream media notes the lousy numbers and their spin..if it was a story last week, it is this week, too. Be consistent.
Hmmm. NBC cannot cover the DNC in prime time on Sept. 5 - - it is the kickoff to the NFL season on NBC. Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants..football ratings will be HUGE...will beat convention even when you add up all the networks combined...Wednesday night is Bill Clinton's speech...football always rules the TV ratings...
UPDATE: Ratings last night (Sept. 5)...
Football - 21.81 million
Add up the following networks which covered the speech: and it only adds up to 16.3 million
CBS, 3.9 mil
ABC, 3.5 mil
MSNBC, 3.3 mil
CNN, 2.9 mil
Fox News, 2.7 mil
But, adding them up is a bit unfair since they must be broken up in order to figure in to the way we do those things. But, one network (NBC) had more than the others - combined. This will be ignored....football rules and it was a bit off last year's opener, too. Then, take the usual 4-5 million from NBC and then a tie might happen. Again, football on one network beats politics on many...and that is why they went with football.
SCIENCE EXPLORES THE LEGACY OF THE STAR TREK PHENOMENON WITH THE DEFINITIVE
TWO-HOUR TELEVISION EVENT: TREK NATION
-- George Lucas, J.J. Abrams and Seth MacFarlane join Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry Jr. on the journey of a lifetime featuring never-before-seen footage in TREK NATION premiering Wednesday, November 30, at 8PM ET/PT on SCIENCE--
(Silver Spring, Md.)—SCIENCE celebrates the 45th anniversary of one of the greatest television franchises of all time, Star Trek, with the world-premiere two-hour event, TREK NATION. This tribute follows Gene Roddenberry’s son, Rod, as he explores the deep impact of his father’s singular vision for the future. Through interviews with fans, including George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, Seth MacFarlane, and many notable Star Trek alums, TREK NATION chronicles a son’s journey to discover his father’s work that helped defined science fiction. TREK NATION premieres on SCIENCE on Wednesday, November 30 at 8PM ET/PT.
TREK NATION draws on hours of exclusive footage, including never-before-seen home movies from the Roddenberry family collection and the first-ever Star Trek convention. This film demonstrates that Roddenberry’s work has not only inspired legions of fans across the globe, but generated a cultural movement. Star Trek is a phenomenon that goes beyond entertainment; it has influenced politics, space travel, social morality and much more. Star Trek was a catalyst which has fostered an enhanced understanding of the human condition, capturing man’s constant search for a better world.
“Gene Roddenberry is the original thought-provocateur; the rebel-genius who was not afraid to push the boundaries of what science can accomplish,” said Debbie Myers, general manager and executive vice president of SCIENCE. “Star Trek used science fiction to hold a mirror to society, leveraging its storylines as a platform for social commentary touching on topics such as racism, sexism, the economy, war, peace and religion. Working with Rod, and showing footage never shared on television is what makes TREK NATION truly inspiring.”
“I am so glad TREK NATION found its home at SCIENCE,” says Rod Roddenberry, Executive producer of Trek Nation and son of Star Trek creator, Gene Roddenberry. “They understood that, as personal as the film was for me, TREK NATION is really a universal story of a son coming to understand his father. The experience allowed me to learn more about the man behind this incredible science fiction phenomenon as well as the man I knew as ‘Dad.’ I think it’s something that Star Trek fans and those less familiar with the franchise will enjoy.”
Star Trek was a revolution that would define an era. When it first premiered on NBC in 1966, it often was described as a western set in space. However, the series provided a much deeper commentary that created a devoted and loyal fan base which continues to grow, even today. With a then-virtually-unknown cast, each week Roddenberry told tales of humans and aliens who lived side by side and served the Starfleet, the peacekeeping armada of the universe.
