Ratings: Resurrection Opens Big; True Detective Finale Scores Series High

Landon Gimenez, Frances Fisher

ABC sees dead people big ratings.

After terrible launches for Mind Games and Mixology, the network saw huge numbers Sunday for the series premiere of Resurrection, which drew 13.3 million viewers and a 3.6 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, making it the best midseason drama debut since Smash. It also posted ABC's biggest audience in the slot since January 2010 and the ...

Ask Matt: Season's Surprises (Good and Bad), Olympics, Superheroes

Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher

Question: Now that the "traditional" network season is about half over, do you have any shows you've found to be either pleasant surprises (those you didn't think much of initially, but improved) or disappointments? I know that for me, the biggest disappointment has been (as it has been for many people) Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is basically just the 21st-century A-Team. It's fairly entertaining enough, but if it were to disappear tomorrow, I wouldn't shed any tears. The two happiest surprises for me have been The Crazy Ones (which didn't sound like it would be good, and I quit watching after the pilot but have caught up and found it quite enjoyable — probably because they keep Robin Williams' zaniness in check and the supporting cast has proven very funny) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I didn't really know much of Andy Samberg so wasn't that interested, but the early reviews had me check it out. I was very glad, too, because that's one new show I look forward to every week. I find it to be a worthy successor to The Office in its heyday. I'm also finding Almost Human to be getting much better from its middling premiere, though it's still not quite appointment TV. — Scott

The Simpsons Get the White Christmas Blues

The Simpsons Get the White Christmas Blues

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas — but only where The Simpsons live. The long-running Fox series will celebrate the holidays Sunday, Dec. 15 (8/7c) in predictably screwy fashion: Thanks to global warming, there's no snow anywhere in the United States except in Springfield, where a radiation leak at the town's nuclear-power plant has resulted in lots of local white stuff. Cue the price gouging.

Premise: Animated antics of the constantly grousing Griffins, a family that put some fun in dysfunctional. While dad Peter is a tad dim and lazy, mom Lois is none of the above. Then there are hapless teens Meg and Chris; sassy baby Stewie, who's wise (and a wise guy) beyond his years; and family dog Brian, who might be the smartest of the lot. Series creator Seth MacFarlane voices many of the regular characters. In 2002, Fox dumped the show, but revived it in 2005 after it became a top-selling DVD.
