Re: Renewals & Cancellations

So we all knew that it was going to happen but Versailles has officially ended. It was a show that I took interest in and was carried into an adult / raunchy 18+ history lesson but alas, it is no more.

https://www.radiotimes.com/news/tv/2...-three-series/

FYI...just so viewers are aware, the series does contain unsettling scenes that involve violence and nudity / sexual content.

Re: Renewals & Cancellations

CBS have announced that Season 12 of The Big Bang Theory will also be its last season.

The (now) final season begins at the end of September 2018.

Re: Renewals & Cancellations

not good, I thought they would milk it for as long as they could and it would at least run to season 15. I am going to miss those guys, 12 years is a long time and I can't believe I have been watching it for so long, I can remember watching season 1 like it was yesterday. It is a cracking series though and I am glad they earned mega $$$ at such a young age to keep them going for the rest of their lives if nothing else comes along.

Re: Renewals & Cancellations

Okay so I really can't tell if this is in the spirit of this thread, but a series called Naked attraction (it is a show but kind of like a game show / dating thing) has been confirmed for a third series.

It, though (like with Versailles) is controversial and extremely polarizing...in fact, not many love it and the hatred round it is enormous so until the show airs it was always a "will it be cancelled today" kind of shows. The third series was announced earlier in the year but it is set to make it to air, and the first episode of the third series will go on air tomorrow.

No idea what the ratings are but it is aired on channel 4 in the dead of night / demand so I suppose the figured can be sought.

A bit of background...the show is a contestant based game show where one person gets to chose a date of 6 naked people that suit his or her likes. When he or she narrows it down to the final pair, he or she strips nude, too. There (apparently) is no rejection available for the winner - they then go on a date and 99 times out of 100 it leads to nothing more than casual sex afterwards, no more. (You don't get to watch that part, though).

On a personal note, I did get convinced to start watching this show by...urgh I saw a bit of a few episodes, found it repellent and it turned me off everything in life. Finally managed to delete all that I had of it, thanks to some help from Luther and he will answer any other questions that you have on the matter.

Given that the show is 18+ I am sorry if my post has fallen foul of the rules. It is not pornographic according to Ofcom and Ofcom chose not to investigate as they said there was nothing that breached their rules and that the show was purely a dating show and does not contain sexual activity and was also shown after the watershed.

I once caught about 20 minutes of that show, it was terrible.

I have also watched it from the start.

I suspect the mega $$$ are part of the issue, with them wanting so much that its losing its financial viability to produce.

Re: Renewals & Cancellations

CBS and Warner Bros TV wanted to have at least two more series, because they make so much money from the programme (advertising revenue during the first run and residuals on re-runs).

https://ew.com/tv/2018/08/22/the-big...eady-to-leave/

They've stopped after this season because Jim Parsons wanted to leave.

ig Bang repeats on TBS often lure more viewers than anything else on cable (and sometimes broadcast), a feat other recent hit comedies (including Emmy winner Modern Family) have failed to match. "The pot is as big or bigger than it was for Friends, and that's due to syndication rights and the amount of money you get per 30-second commercial," says Bob Williams, CEO at Burns Entertainment, which matches celebrities with brands. Adweek reported in October that first-run Big Bang episodes commanded $326,260 per 30-second spot for the 2013-14 season, second only to NBC's Sunday Night Football.

Re: Renewals & Cancellations

I don't blame him to be honest, he must be loaded by now at $1 million per episode so why not chill for the next 5 years and do everything you heart desires. Although as viewers we might think it is an easy job to do a 20 minute episode a week I imagine as actors they have long and gruelling filming schedules and Sheldon/Jim Parsons especially must have it extra hard with all the science lingo and stuff he needs to memorise. I have got a degree in Microbiology although I love my science the physics stuff means nothing to me and even I would struggle to come out with all the stuff he does and make it sound believable.

This is from a Quora discussion about how long an episode takes to film.

Quote:
Kunal Nayyar (Raj from Big Bang Theory) had once explained the schedule in a podcast.

On an average, it takes around a week to get an episode right and shoot for it. The stars get their scripts on Tuesday. Wednesday is a casual table read. Thursday they will rehearse the scene among themselves in front of the writers and director. On Friday, the executives from CBS and more will come to watch the rehearsal. During this time, the script will be constantly modified based on suggestions from everyone and a new script will be delivered every night.

On Monday, they have a rehearsal with the lights, camera and shoot the scenes which cannot be performed in front of an audience. Finally, on Tuesday, they have a final rehearsal and then the scene is filmed in front of a live audience.

Re: Renewals & Cancellations

I wouldn't say a new script but certainly a modified one. I and others have talked to Joe Mallozzi on this and he sort of put it this way. Sort of as I'm not quoting verbatim.

A script is what the writer envisages as how the story unfolds but the table read takes in ideas from the cast which may lead to modifications. When we get to rehearsal there may be further input from the actors, writers, cast, crew and executives from the studio/media company airing it. There is then a metamorphosis to what is seen on screen by the viewer including it being cut and edited to fit the time slot while still keeping to the general story line. A script is like a living entity maturing at a fantastic rate until it is finally "in the can" and ready to air.

Fans of Versailles are in for a treat. This week, Ovation announced they will air behind-the-scenes specials ahead of the TV show’s third and final season.

I think he meant a new copy of the (modified) script.
