As Hannibal fans this weekend (and billions of others before them) can attest, too long has the antiquated Nielsen ratings system given an incomplete picture of a show’s viewership, swaying networks to and fro of cancellation. We may finally have some progress however, as Nielsen will begin taking into account streaming data from the likes of Hulu, Netflix and beyond.

Gotham hasn’t proven particularly shy with the lion’s share of Season 2 footage and teasers, but at least a few faces have been missing from its city streets. No longer, as the full character gallery for Gotham Season 2 brings Two-Face, Lucius Fox and more back into the fold, along with some new menace for our future Batman.
Not fit to stay contained by its original twelve-episode order, FOX’s Empire will only grow bigger in Season 2, upping the ante to a full 18 hours, but why stop there? Even the previews have started their own Empire, as FOX devotes a full 20 minutes to previewing the Lyons’ second run.
As Gotham Season 2's promotion ramps up, focus continually aims at the colorful villains emerging throughout the city, rather than young Bruce Wayne’s cowled future. Still, a new photo takes us inside the major Bat-revelation of Season 1's finale, while Ben McKenzie offers his take on when the series should introduce a full-grown Batman.
Gotham star Ben McKenzie recently promised the second season to improve upon muddled reception of the first, but the latest trailer seems to be clowning around. There’s more Joker camp than ever in a new “Rise of the Villains” spot, and we even get a taste of (sigh) Barbara’s arc to boot.
Gotham Season 2 has debuted a few teasers and posters by now, with series star Ben McKenzie swearing up and down this year won’t make the same ‘mistake’ of last year, but does Season 2 look any different by its first photo? Former Commish and Freak Show vet Michael Chiklis arrives in Gotham by its first official promo shot, staring down the corrupt GCPD.
FOX’s Gotham clearly made enough Bat-fans happy to justify an extended first season order, as well as the Season 2 renewal, though many (like us) derided the show’s take on the Dark Knight’s early days. Series lead Ben McKenzie apparently agrees, calling Season 1 a “mistake,” and assuring this year will be “exactly what the fans want to see.”
Still a ways off in 2016, FOX’s X-Files event series revival has kept classified most of its footage and photos, but fans needn’t wait any longer for the reunion between FBI Assistant Director Skinner and his two weirdest agents. See the holy X-Files trinity reunite in a new photo of Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny and Mitch Pileggi!
The Simpsons spent enough time dealing with Harry Shearer’s potential exit that we lost sight of other Hollywood talent to partake of future episodes, but already Season 27 has more major names lined up. Not only will Modern Family favorite Sofia Vergara tempt Bart as a new teacher, we’ll also see Girls star Andrew Rannells in a surprising role.
FOX’s Gotham has been reticent to use more notable Batman villains in recurring roles (instead making near everyone a series regular), but the FOX DC drama will burn one off for its its take on Firefly. The flaming Bat-baddie will blaze through Gotham for a short Season 2 arc, but is it another setup for decades down the line?
