It looks as if The Bible has been a godsend. Last year's History miniseries averaged 11.4 million viewers overall, kicking off a new surge of religious-themed programming. ABC's new back-from-the-dead drama Resurrection, with its faith-based undercurrents, is averaging 10.2 million viewers, and the box-office success of such movies as ...

Mad Men isn't exactly going out with a bang.
The first half of the AMC drama's seventh and final season drew 2.3 million viewers on Sunday, marking the show's smallest audience since its Season 2 bow in 2008 (2.06 million) and down more than 1 million from its Season 6 opener ...

Question: What do you think of the "Uprising" arc in the second half of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s first season? I think it is miles better than the first half of this season, which was pretty so-so at times. [Spoilers ahead] The tie-in with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, with Hydra infiltrating S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Garrett being revealed as the Clairvoyant working for Hydra, were very good plot twists, along with Agent Ward being a turncoat to work for Agent Garrett and Hydra — or could Ward be going undercover for Agent Coulson to help S.H.I.E.L.D. bring down Hydra? I really hope this show gets renewed for a second season by ABC, so that it will continue to improve and be a better show that everyone can enjoy to watch! - Chris
The Walking Dead set a new finale ratings record Sunday.
The Season 4 closer drew 15.7 million viewers, with 10.2 million in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. Though the figures are down from the show's all-time high (16.1 million and 10.4 million for its Season 4 premiere), the fourth ...

CBS topped Sunday with a March Madness-boosted lineup.
Pending adjustments for the 41-minute delay, The Amazing Race All-Stars held steady with 9.1 million viewers and a 1.8 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, while The Good Wife's shocking episode (8.9 million, 1.5) grew two tenths. The Mentalist (7.9 million, 1.2), which didn't ...
In what initially comes off as a Habitat for Inhumanity — fueled by reality-competition juices that upstage the do-gooder impulse of neighborhood home renovation — NBC's derivative American Dream Builders takes its visual cues from Extreme Makeover Home Edition (airing in that show's old time period, Sundays at 8/7c), complete with an elaborate weekly reveal, although the only bus here is the one the contestants repeatedly throw each other under. Dream Builders' emotional dynamic is more attuned to Celebrity Apprentice in its nightmare blueprint of clashing egos getting in the way of a job well done.

ABC has unveiled the season finale dates for its prime-time shows, including Scandal and Grey's Anatomy. Scandal will conclude its truncated third season on Thursday, April 17, while Grey's will wrap up on Thursday, May 15.
Resurrection is still going strong.
The ABC drama topped Sunday with 10.8 million viewers and a 3.0 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, down eight tenths from its premiere last week, but it easily outpaced all other programming. Lead-in Once Upon a Time (7.5 million, 2.3) slipped a tenth and lead-out Revenge (6.2 million, 1.7) dropped ...

Just about the best news I heard all week: CBS's renewal of the splendid The Good Wife for a sixth season, among a ton of other pick-ups. If the month or more of special-Sunday distractions (Super Bowl, Olympics, Oscars) caused you to drift away, now's a great time for "Opting Back In." Which happens to be the name of a keynote speech Alicia (Julianna Margulies) is nervously preparing for the annual American Bar Association powwow in New York City — an occasion allowing for a terrific running gag involving new Mayor Bill De Blasio (Sunday, 9/8c).
