With ‘Good Boys,’ Universal Keeps Beating Box Office Slump for Comedy

With ‘Good Boys,’ Universal Keeps Beating Box Office Slump for Comedy
Good Boys” was quite a surprise for box office analysts this weekend. Riding off of strong reviews and audience word of mouth, Universal’s raunchy comedy about a group of sixth graders wading into the world of girls and hormones has earned a $21 million opening this weekend, nearly double the $11 million opening set by independent projections prior to release.

“It seems that Universal has cracked the comedy code and thus has been somewhat immune to the movie comedy curse by releasing a steady lineup of original and appealing comedies that have bucked the trend of audience indifference,” comScore’s Paul Dergarabedian told TheWrap.

It’s a win for comedy movies at a time when such success is becoming increasingly rare for the genre. But while other studios have contributed those occasional hits in the last three years — Warner Bros.’ “Game Night” and Lionsgate’s “Madea” series come to mind — the

Bob's Burgers: Gene's 10 Most Hilarious Quotes

In the wake of Matt Groening’s groundbreaking work with The Simpsons, it’s been hard for animated family sitcoms to think up original character types. Ever since Bart Simpson became the cultural icon of the ‘90s, it’s been customary to make every TV family’s son lazy, dim, and badly behaved.

Seth MacFarlane created a stupid son for his first show, a nerdy son for his second show, and stupid, nerdy son for his third show. Gene Belcher from Bob’s Burgers is a wholly original character: he’s both musically and comically gifted, he’s smart (but not book-smart), he has feminine traits, and he’s partial to food. Here are Gene’s 10 Most Hilarious Quotes.

How ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Rely on VFX for Big Scale Story Elements

  • Variety
It was a very good year for VFX in television, as evidenced by the five nominated shows in the special visual effects category. “Game of Thrones,” “The Man in the High Castle,” “The Orville,” “Star Trek: Discovery” and “The Umbrella Academy” all showcased truly cutting-edge, imaginative storytelling elements added by artists during the post-production process. Relying on the latest technological advances and tools allowed the teams behind these series to better plan out and then execute everything from elaborately choreographed battles in outer space to fire-breathing dragons, to the destruction of the Statue of Liberty.

The blockbuster fantasy epic, nominated for its visually ambitious penultimate episode, “The Bells,” presented lead visual-effects supervisor Joe Bauer and his team several challenges, but “the biggest was building out, and then destroying King’s Landing,” he says.

Fess up: Are you bummed the 2019 Emmys are going hostless for first time in 16 years? [Poll]

Last month Gold Derby asked our readers to name their dream host for the upcoming 2019 Emmy Awards on Fox, and folks like John Mulaney and Tiffany Haddish topped our results. We also presented a “no one” option in our poll, which received 21% of the vote. Conversely, that meant an overwhelming 79% of poll respondents wanted someone to take the reigns of this year’s Emmys. Alas, Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier announced Wednesday the ceremony will go hostless for the first time in 16 years. Are you bummed about Fox’s decision? Vote in our poll below.

Showtime's The Loudest Voice Gives an Intimate Look at Notorious Fox News Icon Roger Ailes

At the heart of Showtime's The Loudest Voice is the shadowy Roger Ailes, who notoriously turned Fox News into a profit machine and fell from power after multiple sexual harassment allegations. Russell Crowe plays the Summer series's central villain in nearly unrecognizable makeup and prosthetics, reminiscent of Christian Bale's transformation in Vice. Alongside Crowe is a cream-of-the-crop cast, including Sienna Miller, Seth MacFarlane, and Naomi Watts. While the project mostly centers on Ailes's time at Fox News, the media mogul has actually influenced American media and politics for much longer.

Ailes broke into the TV industry by rising the ranks at The Mike Douglas Show, a syndicated daytime variety show where he eventually became an executive producer in 1967. There, he got his foot into politics when he met Richard Nixon, eventually becoming an advisor to the then-presidential nominee. His work with Nixon didn't go unrecognized - he'd later

Seth MacFarlane’s The Orville moving to Hulu for Season 3

Having been renewed for a third season back in May, Seth MacFarlane announced at San Diego Comic-Con that his space comedy-drama The Orville is moving from Fox to the streaming service Hulu, with season 3 set to be a Hulu Original.

As explained by MacFarlane (via Deadline), the reason for the switch is down to production times; it was looking increasingly unlikely that MacFarlane and company would have the new season ready for Fox’s planned midseason premiere in early 2020, with Hulu then stepping in to offer it a platform for a late 2020 debut.

“The Orville has been a labor of love for me, and there are two companies which have supported that vision in a big way: 20th Century Fox Television, where I’ve had a deal since the start of my career, and Fox Broadcasting Company, now Fox Entertainment, which has been my broadcast home for over 20 years,” said MacFarlane.

Seth MacFarlane’s The Orville Moves from Fox to Hulu

Seth MacFarlane’s incredibly well-made Star Trek inspired sci-fi series The Orville has made a big move. It was revealed at Comic-Con during the panel for the series that the upcoming Season 3 would air on Hulu instead of Fox, which has been the home for the series for the first two seasons.

According to Variety, the reason for the change is because of MacFarlane’s current workload and “the length of time it takes to finish work on the show’s numerous special effects sequences would have meant that Season 3 would not have been ready for a midseason debut.”

The upcoming episodes are now expected to launch on Hulu at the end of 2020. MacFarlane explained the situation for the change in a statement:

‘The Orville’ Is Moving to Hulu for Season 3

The hourlong sci-fi series The Orville has been renewed for a third season, albeit with a big change: it’s switching networks. Indeed, the Fox sci-fi series created by Seth MacFarlane will be moving to Hulu for Season 3, which marks a significant shift for the show. The Orville launched on Fox in 2017 as MacFarlane’s biggest live-action TV series yet, serving as both executive producer and star, and while some expected a more comedic twist on the sci-fi genre, the show quickly settled into a very earnest Star Trek-esque groove.

Family Guy Season 18 Trailer Features Beavis & Butt-Head

Alec Bojalad Jul 20, 2019

Fox has released the trailer for Family Guy Season 18 at the show's yearly San Diego Comic-Con appearance.

Fox, the home to The Simpsons, knows a thing or two about long-running animated comedies. Even with that in mind, Family Guy's episode count is starting to get really impressive.

Family Guy season 18 has been confirmed at Fox, bringing another year's worth of flashbacks, chicken fights, and pop culture references to (presumably) Sunday nights.

Fox's animation game remains strong with both the aforementioned Simpsons and Bob's Burgers helping anchor Sunday night alongside Family Guy. Bless the Harts will be joining the lineup this fall as well. Fox also remains the home to Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane's other big project, The Orville. The Orville season 3 was confirmed earlier this year.
