NBC Pushes ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ Live Musical to 2018
The tuner had been set to air as NBC’s holiday musical event this year. The decision to push it a year was driven by Lopez’s overflowing schedule, which includes two series for NBC, “World of Dance” and the drama “Shades of Blue.”
The postponement of “Birdie” means NBC will not stage a musical event this holiday season. Earlier this month, NBC unveiled plans for a “Jesus Christ Superstar Live” event to air on Easter Sunday next year. That project will be shepherded by Craig Zedon and Neil Meron, the pair behind all of NBC’s live musical events to date. Given the high cost of the one-night-only live events, it was unlikely that NBC could field “Superstar” just a few months after staging “Birdie,” had the show stayed on its original date, and »

Ratings: ‘Dirty Dancing’ Remake Draws 6.6 Million Viewers for ABC
The “Dirty Dancing” remake delivered ABC’s most-watched Wednesday in nearly 7 months, but that doesn’t mean the Disney-owned broadcaster topped primetime.
Neither did the network airing “Empire’s” season finale, though: Fox finished second in the key 18-49 demographic, but was fourth among total viewers.
That leaves CBS and NBC, and last night belong to the “Survivor” net.
CBS was first in ratings with a 1.7 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 7.8 million, »

‘Fargo’ Review: A Battle Between Ewan McGregors Has Never Felt So Wretched — And Season 3 Never More Exciting
[Editor’s Note: The review below contains spoilers for “Fargo” Season 3, Episode 6, “The Lord of No Mercy.”]
Gloria Burgle to the rescue!
After an episode of incredible tension and unexpected tragedy, we didn’t realize how badly we needed to hear Carrie Coon say, “Screw it,” whip the cruiser around, and high-tail it back to “the P.O.’s domicile.” While the simultaneously ominous and uplifting strings certainly served to get our hearts beating, “Fargo” may as well have played Bonnie Tyler’s famous “Footloose” jam “Holding Out for a Hero” — because one is on the way!
It’s just we had to hold out a little too long. Just enough road blocks were thrown in front of Burgle to keep her from cracking the case earlier, and all that time led to an inevitable tragedy. Ray (Ewan McGregor) is the first major victim of Season 3 (unless you count the annual pilot sacrifice of Scoot McNairy’s Maurice Lafay), in a particularly well-orchestrated offing. First »

‘Silicon Valley’ and T.J. Miller Part Ways: How Season 5 Can Survive Without Him
“Silicon Valley” without Erlich Bachman sounds a little too quiet for our comfort.

Can We Really “Jurassic Park” Extinct Animals And Bring Them Back with Biotech?
When people first got over how awesome the special effects and sheer awe of seeing dinosaurs on the big screen in Jurassic Park was, they were left pondering and asking the question, “is this possible?” Ever since the movie and subsequent sequels have been created, scientists have been trying to figure out whether or not it’s actually possible to bring back extinct animals by genetic engineering similar to the kind we were “taught” about in Jurassic Park. De-extinction, or using the power of modern biotechnology to bring back extinct species like mammoths and dinosaurs, would be cool, there’s no question

Well, as we discuss today in our TV Talk podcast, just ask Jessica Lange how well that can work out – as the multiple Oscar and Emmy winner looks… »
