NBC Cancels ‘Revolution,’ ‘Believe,’ ‘Crisis’ and ‘Growing Up Fisher’

NBC continued to solidify its lineup for the 2014-15 broadcast season, axing drama Revolution after two seasons and canceling freshmen Believe and Growing Up Fisher.

Hardly the ratings heavyweight it was early in its first season, Revolution made up for its softer numbers with remarkable consistency and handsome DVR growth. The sophomore season of the J.J. Abrams-produced Warner Bros. Television drama has averaged a 1.4 rating in the key demo in live-plus-same-day viewing and improved to a 2.4 rating after seven days.

Time-shifting also has the series averaging 7.5 million viewers. Many chalked up the season-two drops as a result of losing its Voice lead-in, but Revolution ended its first year on a softer note despite the generous pairing with NBC’s top show. The Blacklist, which scored NBC’s first renewal for the 2014-15 season back in December, has proven to be a much stronger performer.

The news comes as NBC has picked up DC Comics-themed Hellblazer drama Constantine to series. It joins dramas Odyssey, Constantine, Mysteries of Laura and Allegiance at the network.

For Abrams, meanwhile, Revolution‘s cancellation comes a week after Fox canceled his Almost Human after one season. The prolific producer still has CBS’ already renewed Person of Interest and NBC’s bubble drama Believe in contention.

Things were not looking good for either limited efforts Crisis or Believe at the start of the May sweep. NBC decided early on to pull the pair of dramas from their Sunday slots, despite relatively steady performances. The J.J. Abrams-backed Believe got a solid sampling with a Monday premiere after The Voice, though nowhere near up to snuff with Blacklist numbers, and quickly settled on Sunday. Season-to-date, the Alfonso Cuaron-produced series from Warner Bros. Television is averaging a 2.0 rating in the key demo. (That’s with DVR boosts and the Monday debut.) It has also had the unfortunate distinction of facing off against one of midseason’s lone hits: ABC’s Resurrection. The rival drama, similarly supernatural, has owned the hour since its March launch. Creatively, the drama stumbled to find its footing early on, changing showrunners three times before its debut.

Rand Ravich‘s Crisis has been posting a somewhat more modest 1.8 rating among adults 18-49 and 7 million viewers in the incredibly unforgiving hour of 10 p.m. on Sundays. Neither Believe nor Crisis has been much of a success with critics, though 20th Century Fox TV’s Crisis did garner several favorable reviews.

As for Growing Up Fisher – the 1990s-set family comedy starring J.K. Simmons as a blind dad — like About a Boy, it has largely benefited from its proximity to The Voice as part of NBC’s Tuesday-night lineup, though not as well. The comedy from D.J. Nash (Up All Night) and Universal Television has averaged a 1.7 among adults under 50, better than the already renewed Parks and Recreation and perennial bubble show Community.

NBC pulls ‘Crisis’ and ‘Believe’ from sweeps schedule

The future is not looking bright for “Crisis” or “Believe.” NBC has pulled the series from its schedule on the final Sunday of May sweeps, May 18, and will be replacing the episodes with a “Women of SNL” special.

As previously announced, neither show will air May 11, when the network will premiere the first episode of the two-part miniseries “Rosemary’s Baby.” Both shows will return to their regularly scheduled timeslots on May 25, but their prospects for renewal look increasingly dim.

In “Crisis,” starring Gillian Anderson and Dermot Mulroney, students from an elite Washington, D.C., prep school are taken hostage on a field trip. “Believe,” from executive producers J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuaron, centers on  a 10-year-old girl with supernatural abilities (Johnny Sequoyah) who goes on the run with a wrongfully convicted death row inmate (Jake McLaughlin).

Both series have struggled to make an impact on jam-packed Sunday nights. “Believe” started out strong with 10.5 million viewers tuning into the series premiere in March, but its audience has since dwindled to about 4.5 million. “Crisis” debuted to a less robust 6.5 million viewers, and has since dipped to under 4 million.

Jamie Chung Dangerous As Miho In “Sin City 2?

Written by jess on 26 April 2014

Oh course, she makes everything a little more badass.

Gaining her fame in 2004?s MTV series, Real World: San Diego, Korean-American Jamie Chung has been a mainstay on your TV screens ever since. The 31-year-old beautiful actress has graced the sets of daytime soaps (Days Of Our Lives), crime shows (CSI:NY), and cult hits like Veronica Mars. In 2009, Jamie took the big step from the TV screen to the big screen, starring in features such as Sorority Row and Dragonball Evolution with g.o.d. legend, Joon Park.

Even with her steps into the bright lights, Jamie has recently returned back to her first love, television. In one of my personal favorite roles, she brought Asian legend, Mulan, to life in the role of ABC prime-time hit, Once Upon A Time.

But the small screen is not enough to contain this legend, as she was cast in the sequel to 2005?s Sin City: Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For. Frank Miller’s graphic novel comes to life once again as Jamie stars next to Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, and so many more, even Lady Gaga. Jamie takes on the role of Miho (previously played by Devon Aoki), a mute female assassin of Japanese descent, armed with different Japanese swords. She’s a force to be reckoned with, dangerous and sexy as she dispatches those that offend her. The role will be nothing new to Jamie, who has wielded swords in many of her past roles.

Jamie Chung On Once Upon A Time: ‘I Would Go Back In A Heartbeat’

Written by jess on 21 January 2014

Jamie Chung has a new primetime drama for NBC, but don’t count her out of future episodes of ABC’s “Once Upon A Time.”

“I think it would be really disappointing to leave the audience with this giant question mark,” Jamie told AccessHollywood.com, following the NBC “Believe” panel (her new show) at the Television Critics Association Winter Tour on Sunday. “I would go back in a heartbeat. I am committed to this show, but I don’t think that door is shut, so I’m hoping that there is something we can do to kind of answer more questions.”

Jamie plays Mulan on “Once,” and in recent episodes, her feelings for another, female character – Aurora (played by Sarah Bolger) – were alluded to.

The actress said she had an inkling that her character had feelings for Aurora earlier in the season.

“It was like an ongoing inside joke between Sarah Bolger and I… ‘I secretly really care about you,’” Jamie said.

The actress said she had an inkling that her character had feelings for Aurora earlier in the season.

“For the audience as well, there was like this conspiracy online, like, ‘Mulan loves Aurora!’” Jamie continued. “I’m really glad that the writers listened, because I really do think that that’s what they planned from the beginning. They’re all about twists and you know, why not? It felt so natural to begin with.”

Things for Mulan were left on a bit of an unresolved note, as the crushed fairytale character (after seeing Aurora pregnant, and happy with her prince) decided to join Robin Hood’s Merry Men. If it works out with the scheduling of her new J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuaron executive produced series, “Believe,” Jamie would love a return to Fairytale Land. The actress said she would also be open to seeing a romance happen to Mulan and another character, should the writers be interested in crafting one.

“I would love something to sink my teeth into with that character,” she added.

“Believe” premieres March 10 at 10 PM ET/PT on NBC. “Once Upon a Time” airs Sunday nights at 8 PM
