'Red Band Society' Pulled From The FOX Schedule

red-band-society

Looks like FOX is pulling the plug on its highly promoted freshman drama series.

According to Deadline, the network has decided not to order more episodes beyond the original thirteen episodes. Production will halt in mid-December and the final episode to air will be the fall finale scheduled for December 3rd. Right now there is no word on what will happen with the final three finished episodes of the series.

Red Band Society followed a group of teenagers living together as patients in a hospital's pediatric ward. The show has not been the breakout hit that FOX was looking for and at best, it's ratings have been modest.

Michael Ealy Joins 'The Following' Cast

michael-ealy-gold-background-062-400x295

Fans are about to witness the ultimate Jekyll and Hyde when it comes to an actor.

TVLine first reported that Michael Ealy will join the cast in season three as the main bad guy. His character is described as a “brilliant, chameleon-like” murderer who’ll test Ryan Hardy’s limits,

Michael was last seen on the small screen in the short lived FOX sci-fi drama Almost Human. He played the caring and sympathetic android Dorian. The network decided to cancel the show after thirteen episodes, but that hasn't stopped fans of Almost Human to start a petition to get the show back on the air. Whether that will happen will remain to be seen, but for now fans will have to settle for Ealy's upcoming work on The Following.

FOX Orders More 'Mindy Project'

The_Mindy_Project

There seems to be a little angel looking out for the Mindy Project. FOX announced that it has ordered six more episodes for the struggling comedy.

Originally, FOX announced a 15 episode third season for the series, but this additional episode order brings the total to 21 episodes and a hair away from a full season.

In it's third season, the comedy is averaging a 1.6 in the all important 18-49 demographic and 3.1 million viewers, which also includes seven days of DVR playback numbers.

Some may be scratching their heads when it comes to the additional episode order, but FOX is quick to point out that the show's ratings increase 99 percent when you include 30 days of playback across multiple platforms and the fact the series does well with female viewers.

Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader

FOX is bringing back the popular and critically praised quiz show ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER? for another season on FOX. Executive-produced by Mark Burnett, the show features comedian Jeff Foxworthy, who returns as host.

“ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER? shares so much DNA with the FOX brand that it feels only natural to return it to the schedule – it’s smart, witty, irreverent and it turns the adult/child power dynamic upside-down,” said Simon Andreae, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Fox Broadcasting Company. “All of the core components of the classic format will be there, but we are also adding new twists that make it fresher and more fun for viewers.”

Kevin Reilly To Step Down As Chairman, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company

Kevin_Reilly

Kevin Reilly announced today that he will depart Fox Broadcasting Company by the end of June.

“21st Century Fox is a great company that has provided me with choice seats at the head table of pop culture over two very rewarding stints both at FBC and FX, and I am grateful to have benefitted from the leadership of Peter Rice, Chase Carey and Rupert Murdoch,” said Reilly. “Peter and I have been discussing this transition for a while, and now with a robust new slate of programming for next season and strength in the FBC ranks, it felt like the timing was as right as it could be. I couldn't be more thankful to my team – a group of creative, tireless and fun people whose fellowship I will miss.”

Peter Rice, Chairman and CEO of Fox Networks Group, said, “Kevin’s undeniable creative gift and passion for talent have left an indelible mark on our company, and we’re extremely grateful to him for his leadership, beginning with ‘The Shield’ and ‘Nip/Tuck’ at FX and continuing through GLEE, NEW GIRL, THE FOLLOWING, SLEEPY HOLLOW and BROOKLYN NINE-NINE at FOX. Kevin and I have been discussing his desire for a new challenge for some time, so while everyone at the network will miss his enthusiasm for adventurous television, we all respect his decision and agreed that after the upfront presentation was the right time. I’m personally extremely grateful to Kevin for his partnership during the past five years and look forward to working with him again in the future.”

During the transition period, before naming a replacement, Reilly’s senior executives will report to Rice.

Reilly, who joined FOX in 2007 and was named Chairman of Entertainment in 2012, has distinguished himself as a force in both cable and broadcast television, leading FOX to five of its eight consecutive winning seasons and shepherding seminal hits like GLEE, “The Sopranos,” “The Office” and “ER.” Under his leadership, the network launched Golden Globe Award-winning comedy BROOKLYN NINE-NINE; Emmy Award-nominated and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon GLEE; this season’s breakout hit drama SLEEPY HOLLOW; as well as Emmy Award-nominated NEW GIRL, THE FOLLOWING and THE MINDY PROJECT.
