Binge Viewing: TV's Lost Weekends

Binge Viewing: TV's Lost Weekends | TVFiends Daily | Scoop.it

Binge viewing is transforming the way people watch television and changing the economics of the industry. The passive couch potato of the broadcast era turned into the channel surfer, flipping through hundreds of cable channels. Now, technologies such as on-demand video and digital video recorders are giving rise to the binge viewer, who devours shows in quick succession—episode after episode, season after season, perhaps for $7.99 a month, the cost of a basic Netflix membership.

Breaking Badly? How Will Feud with Dish Network Impact Ratings for the Season Premiere of AMC’s ‘Breaking Bad?’ - Ratings | TVbytheNumbers | TVFiends Daily | Scoop.it

AMC has somewhat staunched the impact of their impasse with Dish Network for Dish subscribers by streaming the premiere of Breaking Bad free to Dish customers at 10p ET tonight. But I'm guessing that's not going to count in the ratings.

Comic-Con 2012 Live-Blog: FOX's 'Fringe' | TVFiends Daily | Scoop.it

HitFixs Daniel Fienberg live-blogs the Sunday, July 15 San Diego Comic-Con panel for FOXs Fringe.


Joel Wyman on the final season "I've had ideas since Season 1, but those change, to be honest," Wyman says. "Truthfully, I had two-and-a-half versions of what we should do for the end, but I sorta decided three months ago," Wyman says. And did he tell the cast? Yes, apparently. "Because it's 13, we want to write the scripts early to make sure that everything is absolutely perfect and the way we want it," Wyman says, explaining that he's going to be concentrating on working with the writers, so he had to tell the actors the direction of things.

“I don't know why that picture’s a big deal,” Snooki tells THR. “We were having a bonfire and everyone was carrying the tables and the chairs. Obviously I cannot lift anything like that, because I’m pregnant, so I decided to use my stroller and everyone put everything that they wanted [in it]. Drinks and stuff. And then I strolled it down to the beach.


“Obviously I wasn't drinking it,” she adds. “People just take me way too seriously.”

Who Won The War: DirecTV Or Viacom?

Who Won The War: DirecTV Or Viacom? | TVFiends Daily | Scoop.it

DirecTV’s first year payment to Viacom in the seven-year deal is a double-digit percentage step up from what it was paying before, but less than the 30% that DirecTV said Viacom initially wanted. After that, DirecTV’s outlay for Viacom’s channels will rise by mid-single digit percentages each year.


The deal gives DirecTV the right to stream Viacom programming to its customers — both inside and outside of their homes — via the satellite provider’s TV Everywhere program. And it doesn’t have to carry premium movie channel Epix, but has the option to pick it up.

Comic-Con Q&A: Vince Gilligan On ‘Breaking Bad’

Comic-Con Q&A: Vince Gilligan On ‘Breaking Bad’ | TVFiends Daily | Scoop.it

Gilligan: "It’s often the case with successful TV shows that they kind of inadvertently live on past their prime. It’s best to leave the audience wanting more. And particularly with a show like Breaking Bad, which is by its design more closed-ended, it’s telling one specific story of change, and there’s only so much change any human being can believably go through. And I figure we’ve got about 16 more episodes left in us. That number could probably jockey for 2 or 3 episodes on either side of 16, but there’s not that big a range of possibilities left. I don’t want this show to feel like it’s treading water creatively."


Deadline: There’s only so far downhill Walter White can go.
Gilligan: Yes, only so much darker that he could become, only so much criminality and immorality he could succumb to.
