‘Big Bang Theory’ Sets Premiere Record

It may have lost out on the best comedy Emmy on Sunday, but last night The Big Bang Theory proved it is the biggest entertainment show on broadcast television and, in Season 7, shows no signs of slowing down. The hourlong season premiere of the comedy juggernaut was its biggest ever, drawing a 5.6 rating in adults 18-49 — up 17% from its 18-49 fast national last year when the opener was a half-hour — and 18.3 million viewers.

The Hangover 3 Parties Its Way Onto Blu-ray In October

As the Hangover franchise has become an international phenomenon, the budgets for the films have gotten much bigger. The original installment was created on a $35 million budget and crushed domestically, pulling in well over $277 million dollars in the States. The latest movie, on the other hand, was made on a $103 million dollar budget and only brought in $112 million domestically. The Hangover III may have done decently worldwide, but Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is likely looking to make up some money via the film’s Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download release, which will hit the street on October 8.

Doctor Who 50th anniversary schedule revealed by BBC

Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt

The BBC has announced a raft of programmes to mark the 50th anniversary of the first episode of Doctor Who.

A 75-minute special episode called The Day Of The Doctor will star the soon-to-leave Matt Smith and David Tennant.

Smith said: "Hope you all enjoy. There's lots more coming your way."

Other highlights include a BBC Two lecture by Professor Brian Cox on the science behind the hit show and the drama An Adventure In Space and Time, written by Mark Gatiss.

The one-off programme stars David Bradley - known to millions for his role as Filch in the Harry Potter films - as William Hartnell, who played the first Doctor in 1963.

BBC Four will introduce new audiences to Hartnell, with a re-run of the first ever story. The four episodes are being shown in a restored format, not previously broadcast in the UK.

BBC Two's flagship arts programme The Culture Show is to present Me, You and Doctor Who, with lifelong fan Matthew Sweet exploring the cultural significance of the BBC's longest running TV drama.

A 90-minute documentary on BBC Radio 2 will ask "Who Is The Doctor?" - using newly-recorded interviews and exclusive archive material to find an answer.

Firefly is Returning as a Graphic Novel

Firefly has a huge cult following today, but what bewilders us at TGD is the Browncoat fanbase couldn’t keep the show alive when it was first on TV back in 2002, and the Browncoats weren’t there when it hit the big screen with Serenity either. 

Still, fans have been clamoring for a Firefly resurrection, but Joss Whedon’s going to be busy with Avengers 2 for the next two years. Whedon certainly hasn’t closed the door on going back to Firefly, he’s just not returning to it any time soon. Yet Firefly is apparently returning in the graphic novel form, which could be a great way to keep the saga going.

As Giant Freakin Robot tells us about the upcoming graphic novel, the publishers are Dark Horse, and as the company said in a statement, “Joss Whedon’s beloved Firefly series and Serenity film’s lifespan may have been short-lived, but managed to produce one of the most dedicated fanbases in the history of modern science fiction. Dark Horse is proud to be able to keep Mal and his crew flying with new comics and products. Look for the hastag #WheresSerenity over the next few months on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages for exclusive news on the future of the franchise at Dark Horse!”
