Are Netflix Cancellations Extra Painful for Fans, Due to Hidden 'Ratings'?

Are Netflix Cancellations Extra Painful for Fans, Due to Hidden 'Ratings'?
It’s bad enough to lose a quality sitcom such as One Day at a Time. But to never be given a chance to see the cancellation coming? That’s no laughing matter.

After all, when Timeless was cancelled (the first time!), fans were sad, yet some understood. Though the time travel series at the time ranked seventh out of NBC’s 14 dramas, its demo number had quite steadily eroded since its launch, slipping from a 1.8 (!) to barely half of that.

“We knew this was coming,” one TVLine reader commented back then.

TV Shows Ending in 2019: Broad City, Game of Thrones and 35+ More
When 2019 began, we knew that at least 23 beloved shows would soon be leaving us. Three months later, that number has jumped to 40. Math!

Orange Studio, Ocs Join Forces on Flurry of High-Profile Series
Following “The Name of the Rose”(pictured) and “Devils,” France’s Orange has unveiled four internationally-driven series projects as part of its commitment to step into premium original shows with its film/TV division Orange Studio and pay TV group Ocs both of board.

Currently in development, the social western “Cheyenne & Lola,” the dance-filled workplace drama “The Opera,” the French army series “Les Sentinelles” and English-language cyber-thriller “Unpunished” have been added to the company’s rising drama slate.

“Unpunished” is an ambitious series which is being developed with the writers and creators Coline Aubert (“The Returned”) and Fredrik Agetoft (“Arne Dahl: Eye in the Sky”) and the critically-acclaimed Argentine helmer Alex Garcia Lopez, whose credits include “The Punisher” and “Dardevil.”

‘This Isn’t Spinal Tap’: Dishing the Dirt on Motley Crue’s Surprisingly Dark Biopic
The new, eagerly awaited Motley Crue biopic, based on Neil Strauss’ best-selling 2001 book, “The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band,” premieres today on Netflix after a seemingly endless 13 years in development hell.

Those anticipating “a fun ‘80s music movie,” as Crue bassist Nikki Sixx puts it, will inevitably be stunned by the final product, a dark-laced cautionary tale that balances the thrill of making it as a rock god against the downside of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll excess. “The Dirt” takes the “A Star Is Born” theme of the perils of fame and convincingly sets it in the late ‘70’s/early ‘80s punk/metal milieu of Hollywood, complete with a recreation of the Crue’s legendary party house just up the block from the Whisky, where one of its memorable scenes takes place.

“There’s no varnish in this movie, no whitewashing,” insists one of the film’s producers,

Floriana Lima Demands End to Near-Drowning Test

In a new video for PETA, Ohio native and Ohio State University (Osu) alumna Floriana Lima — known for her roles in Lethal Weapon, Supergirl, and Netflix’s The Punisher — pulls back the curtain on a laboratory practice called “the forced swim test,” which is used at Osu, the University of Cincinnati, and Case Western Reserve University.

Lima’s narration reveals that in the test — which was developed in the late 1970s and then called a “despair test” — mice, rats, or other small animals are placed in inescapable beakers filled with water. “Imagine being thrown into deep water,” she says. “You try to escape by climbing up the sides, but the walls of the tank are too slippery and steep. You swim frantically — struggling to keep your head above the water, to keep from drowning — but it’s exhausting, and you’re terrified.”

Experimenters claim that the test can measure an

David Tennant Talks ‘Jessica Jones’ Cancellation: “Three Seasons Of That Story Is Great”

The Marvel/Netflix series “Jessica Jones” has found itself in the middle of an interesting situation. After the sudden demises of “Iron Fist,” “Luke Cage,” and “Daredevil,” many expected “Jessica Jones” and “The Punisher” to be next.” Then when the ax fell on both those series, we now knew the fate of “Jessica Jones,” but the final season of the series has yet to even have an announced premiere date.

Ruben Fleischer Is Out, and Venom 2 Is Looking for Its New Director

Rumors have been flying around the past few months about the status of the director of the next Venom movie. People were pretty sure Ruben Fleischer, director of Venom, wouldn’t be back for its sequel, and now we know that to be true. Kelly Marcel is set to return to write the script, with Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, and Woody Harrelson back to star. Production is scheduled to start in Atlanta in November, so now all they need is a director.

I’m no expert, but if I had to choose a replacement, I’d start with either Jennifer Lynch, the daughter of director David Lynch, or Jeremy Webb. They each have a history of working on projects I like, dark, and humorous, with some superhero stuff mixed in. I think they could both be suitable for this project. But I’d also be down for some new skin in the game.

Why Netflix Blew it With The Punisher

As many fans already know, The Punisher has been cancelled. To some extent, this was inevitable. After all, the relationship between Marvel and Netflix has been strained for some time, seeing as how Disney is one of the numerous media companies that are seeking to start up their own streaming service by making use of their own media properties. As a result, no one was surprised to see the last Marvel shows on Netflix being cancelled, though there are still a lot of people out there who are upset about it. In fact, there is so much upset that one

Punisher: 10 Things We Will Never Get to See On Screen (With the Show's Cancellation)

Following the cancellation of most of Netflix's Marvel Cinematic Universe shows that included DaredevilLuke Cage, and Iron Fist, fans were hopeful but worried about the future of the remaining series Jessica Jones and The Punisher. Unfortunately, both series were axed just as they were set to return to Netflix. We have yet to see the final season of Jessica Jones, season two of The Punisher finalized what was essentially the origin of Frank Castle, leaving much of the character's comic history disappointingly unexplored.

While some version of these series might return on another streaming service, it's likely there are a few things we will now never get to see from Jon Bernthal's Punisher. 10 things, to be precise, which we'll look at today.

Eminem Shows His Support For The New Shazam! Trailer

Marshall Mathers has really thrown himself into the world superhero cinema and television lately, having provided the title song for the soundtrack of last year’s Venom and taken to Twitter last month to stand up for Marvel’s The Punisher in the wake of the show’s cancellation. And with latest trailer for Shazam! dropping earlier today, the rapper better known as Eminem was back on social media to show his support.

Mathers’ endorsement of Billy Batson’s Dceu debut doesn’t exactly come to us out of the blue, seeing how the new preview contains a remix of one his most famous singles, “My Name Is.” The rapper referenced this connection with a tweet, in which he shared the trailer along with the following comment:

His name is Shazam!

The second full trailer for Shazam! hit Monday, with help from Eminem's "My Name Is."

Eminem is apparently a fan of some comic book properties. He recorded a song for Sony's Venom last year, and after Netflix canceled Marvel's The Punisher, he tweeted his displeasure.

Shazam!, from director Director David F. Sandberg, centers on Billy Batson (Asher Angel), a teenager living in a foster home who transforms into an adult superhero (Zachary Levi).

Ray Liotta joins Sopranos prequel The Many Saints of Newark

Goodfellas actor Ray Liotta is returning to the mob. Deadline reports the actor has joined the cast of HBO and New Line’s The Sopranos prequel film The Many Saints of Newark.

“I am thrilled to be working with David Chase and Alan Taylor on The Many Saints of Newark,” Liotta said. “David’s talent is unmatched and the directing of Alan Taylor makes this even more exciting. I respect them both immensely and look forward to making this special project with New Line.”

The Many Saints of Newark will take place during the era of the Newark riots in the ’60s, when African Americans and Italian Americans in the city were at each other’s throats. That clash became lethal when it spread to gangsters of each group.

The cast of The Many Saints of Newark has been growing as of late. Liotta joins Jon Bernthal (The Punisher) Vera Farmiga

The Umbrella Academy Was Reportedly a Big Hit for Netflix

Kirsten Howard Feb 26, 2019

If this new report is accurate, The Umbrella Academy was a bigger hit for Netflix than recent Marvel shows.

Maybe Netflix doesn't need Marvel after all? In the same month that the streaming service finally cancelled its remaining Marvel series, The Punisher and Jessica Jones, it's reportedly had a huge amount of success with its new superhero show The Umbrella Academy, an adaptation of Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá's comic book series of the same name.

Data firm Parrot Analytics (via Screen Rant) claims that The Umbrella Academy is currently the top digital original series in the Us, with a "demand expression" of 30.77 million. The company uses a specialised audience demand measurement algorithm to weigh up a combination of engagement and viewership, an approach that is growing in popularity, as Netflix rarely provides official figures on its films and shows.

General Hospital Alum Jaime Ray Newman Won an Oscar!

Congratulations to General Hospital alum Jaime Ray Newman (ex-Kristina), who took home an Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film at the 91st Annual Academy Awards! Together with her husband, Guy Nattiv, she took to the stage to accept the award for their film, Skin, and was clearly over the moon. “We dedicate this to — oh my God! — to our five-month-old baby who’s sitting at home with my parents watching this,” she exclaimed, struggling to form sentences in her excitement. “We hope that you grow up in a world where these things don’t happen because people learn to love and accept each other.” Skin is a biographical drama written and directed by Nattiv that tells the racially-charged story of a little boy who watches as his father and his friends beat up an African-American man, and then later suffers horrific repercussions when the man and his friends take revenge on the racist father.
