‘Justice League,’ ‘Walking Dead’ Among Most Tweeted Topics at Comic-Con

3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As a mecca for fans of franchises ranging from Marvel to “Star Trek,” it’s no surprise that San Diego Comic-Con’s output of teasers, panels, and meet and greets would foster an explosion of tweets. Topping this year’s outpouring of excitement with the most tweets were properties that revealed new trailers or are supported by obsessive fandoms.

Marvel’s pantheon of offerings was pushed out by DC’s “Justice League” as the most-tweeted about movie, followed by “Thor: Ragnarok,” “Black Panther,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” and “Kingsman.” Warner Bros. released an Sdcc-exclusive “Justice League” trailer, which may have prompted the tweets.

‘Modern Family’ Kids Set Two-Season Deal With Big Pay Bump

2 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Manny, Luke, Haley and Alex will all be back with the family.

The core “Modern Family” kids have closed their deals to sign onto two more seasons of the ABC sitcom, Variety has learned. Insiders say “significant” pay raises were given to each of the young adult actors — Rico Rodriguez, Nolan Gould, Sarah Hyland and Ariel Winter.

Kids actors Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, who plays Lily, and Jeremy Maguire, who plays Joe, joined the series later on in its run and have more time left on their current deals, unlike the other four TV kids, who are now all adults and at least the age of 18 in real life.

ABC and 20th Century Fox Television declined to comment on the actor deals.

The close of the younger actors’ contracts marks the end of rather lengthy negotiations for the regular “Modern Family” cast, who are now all officially set for Seasons 9 and 10. In early May, ABC »

‘Game of Thrones': Why ‘The Prince That Was Promised’ Prophecy Mistranslation Is a Big Deal

11 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

(Note: This post contains spoilers for the July 23 episode of “Game of Thrones”, “Stormborn.”) For season after season of “Game of Thrones,” several people in Westeros have been worried about a certain prophecy about the Prince That Was Promised, the mythical figure who will lead the world in the fight to defeat the White Walkers. Melisandre (Carice van Houten), the Red Woman, spent most of “Game of Thrones” telling Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) he was the Prince That Was Promised. Obviously, that wasn’t true, since Stannis died. After that, Melisandre thought it might be Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), since she managed. »

George R.R. Martin Says ‘Winds of Winter’ Could Hit Shelves in 2018

4 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

George R.R. Martin gave fans another update on his long-awaited next installment in the “Song of Ice and Fire” novel series.

“I’ve seen some truly weird reports about [‘Winds of Winter’] on the internet of late, by ‘journalists’ who make their stories up out of whole cloth,” Martin wrote on his Livejournal. “I don’t know which story is more absurd, the one that says the book is finished and I’ve been sitting on it for some nefarious reason, or the one that says I have no pages. Both ‘reports’ are equally false and equally moronic. I am still working on it, I am still months away (how many? good question), I still have good days and bad days, and that’s all I care to say.”

Martin also said that he is working on a two-volume history of Westeros’ history under the Targaryen dynasty, which is currently titled “Fire and Blood,” with »

4 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS’ live game show version of “Candy Crush” suffered another large drop in the Sunday overnight ratings in its third week, according to Nielsen data.

Airing at 9 p.m., the show averaged a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.4 million viewers, down approximately 38% in the key demo and 17% in total viewers compared to last week (0.8, 2.9 million). It also shed the vast majority of its lead in from “Big Brother” (1.8, 6.1 million) at 8.

CBS aired only repeats for the rest of primetime.

On ABC, “Celebrity Family Feud” (1.1, 6.1 million) was even, as was “Steve Harvey’s Funderdome” (0.8, 4.3 million) and “The $100,000 Pyramid” (0.8, 4.3 million).

Fox aired mostly repeats except for “American Grit” (0.4, 1.1 million), which was up in total viewers.

NBC’s overnight numbers are currently not totally accurate, given the extended overrun of the Nascar Brickyard 400. Due to the overrun of the race, “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” did not air until 9, but is currently averaging a 0.5 and 2.7 million viewers. “Spartan: »

22 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The Comic-Con panel for “Doctor Who” was always going to be a bit bittersweet since this was the last one for Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. Sadly, Pearl Mackie, who plays new companion Bill Potts, also confirmed that she will be leaving the series after the Christmas special.

Mackie has become an instant fan-favorite from her very first episode. Bill Potts had the honor of being the first openly gay companion in the series. While her sexuality wasn’t the main focus for her character, it wasn’t ignored either. In scenes throughout the season, various characters were seen accepting the fact that she is gay with no real issues. In the season finale, she was seen joining her love interest from the first episode to explore space aboard an alien ship.

51 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The 2014 animated web series “Welcome to the Wayne” is checking into Nickelodeon on Monday as a full-fledged series, debuting at 5:30 p.m. Et/Pt.

“Welcome to the Wayne” was Nick’s first web-only short-form series, with six four to five-minute episodes telling the tale of 10-year-olds Ansi Molina and Olly Timbers, and Olly’s little sister Saraline, as they try to unlock the secrets of the mysterious New York building they live in, the Wayne.

The series was created by Emmy winner Billy Lopez (“Peg+Cat,” “Wonder Pets!”), who doubles as the voice of Olly, and is inspired by his childhood in New York’s Greenwich Village. “I especially remember Halloween, when my neighborhood friends and I would go through the buildings we’d lived in. We would just start from the penthouse and tear down the stairs and bang on everyone’s door. It was sort of like ‘Where the Wild Things Are.’ We »

‘Game of Thrones’ Actress Carice van Houten Reveals Her Picks for ‘Prince Who Was Promised’

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not keep reading if you have not seen Season 7, episode 2 of “Game of Thrones.”

This week’s episode of “Game of Thrones” revealed that the prophesied “prince who was promised” could actually be a princess instead.

In a conversation with Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), the Red Woman herself, Melisandre (Carice van Houten) tells the Mother of Dragons of the mythical prince who is said to be the only one capable of stopping the Night’s King and his army of the dead. But Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) points out that in the original Valyrian, the word for prince has no gender, meaning the person could be either male or female. So which character could be Westeros’ salvation?

“It’s just a guessing game. It’s a lottery at this point,” van Houten told Variety. “Anything can happen in this show. I would like to live in a world where it could be Samwell Tarly, but »

Roseanne Revival: Sarah Chalke Drops Big Hint About Top-Secret Character

Sarah Chalke will play D.J.’s wife in ABC’s forthcoming Roseanne revival… is an icky, incest-tinged, so-wrong-it’d-be-right theory I posited to Becky No. 2 over the weekend at San Diego Comic-Con. And while I’m likely wrong — Chalke’s dumbstruck reaction all but confirmed as much — the actress strongly hinted that her top-secret character will have a significant tie to at least one member of the Conner clan.
