Friday night TV ratings: Inhumans bombs, MacGyver & The Exorcist hit lows

Friday night saw the premiere of critically panned Marvel's Inhumans, which unsurprisingly bombed with fractional ratings. The first part of the two-hour premiere got a 0.9 in A18-49, while the 2nd half dropped a tenth to 0.8. Once Upon A Time returns next weeks with it's rebooted season 7 with Inhumans as lead-in, Uh-oh.
CBS MacGyver reboot, which did OK enough to secure a renewal returned by tying it's previous series low of 0.8, which it hit for the season 1 finale. The venerable Blue Bloods topped the night with a 1.1 rating. Hawaii 5-0 did an OK with a 1.0.
FOX The Exorcist, which earned a surprise renewal in the summer, returned with a new series low of 0.5.

A Look Back at TRL from the Former VJs and Co-Creator of the Show

TRL is coming back on Monday with a bunch of "social media influencers" as the new faces of the show. But before then, former VJs and exec producers reminisced about personal highlights from classic TRL.

I've tried to round up what I could find from what they mentioned (or whatever Viacom hasn't taken down yet)

1. Mariah Carey Shows Up Unannounced

Bob Kusbit (co-creator/executive producer; MTV senior vp production):[Mariah Carey would show up with her own lighting crew.] One day, Mariah comes in, pushing this ice cream cart, wearing really short shorts and a skimpy top. A guy runs into the control room and says, “No wide shots!” It was her lighting director. Meanwhile, Carson is looking around the studio like, “Is this really happening?”

Riverdale Roundup: Serpents, Speculation, Sabrina, and Some Other Stuff

RAS posted this picture to tease the new Southside Serpents we'll meet this season. Vanessa Morgan plays Toni Topaz. Drew Ray Tanner (bottom) plays Fangs Fogarty, and Jordan Connor (seated right) plays Sweet Pea.

Fangs Fogarty is an antagonistic character from the Lil Archie line. Maybe the show will subvert his role, or maybe he'll be a straight up dick.

X-Factor's James Arthur blames Rita for his sex addiction

In his autobiography, 2012 X-Factor winner James Arthur talks about his fling with Rita after the show.
They met up on the X-Factor tour and hooked up in Rita's tour bus.
“There was a lot of magic there and it was an amazing night. Rita seemed really, really into me, but I still couldn’t quite believe it.

He seems to have thought she was faking it:
“I wondered if she was a very good actress. I was very stoned that night and my paranoia was sky-high."

They spent more than one night together:
“Me and Rita met up a few more times after that and had some more amazing nights. ‘I’m in love with you,’ she told me one night. She said it so sincerely I wanted to believe her, though it seemed insane"

Rita then ghosted him and he began to spiral:
"If I’m honest, I became a bit of a slag after Rita. I was chatting to hundreds of women online or on Whats-App after swapping numbers with them via Twitter, and I started to sleep with so many of them I lost count."

“They were usually the same type — Babestation girls or glamour models. If I saw someone I fancied I’d contact her on social media and tell her blatantly I wanted to have sex."

James Arthur has previously mentioned his tryst with Rita. In 2013 when he was making rap songs for some reason (including the infamous homophobic diss track), he unkindly referenced her a few times: "Some people's auras [Ora's] and demeanours can deceive us, but what they really want is a piece of your penis." and "I'm giving 10 million f**ks less than Rita does and that's a lot of f**ks.

The eighth ammendment makes abortion illegal in nearly all circumstances in Ireland. Since the ammendment was introduced in 1983 205,704 Irish and Northern Irish women have travelled to the UK to have abortions. Last week the government announced a referendum would be called in 2018 and yesterday women walked in support of the right to abort.

Mara Wilson regrets her poorly timed coming out, says biphobia stopped her from coming out sooner

Matilda star Mara Wilson says she regrets coming out as bisexual immediately after the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting last year because she was accused of taking advantage of a personal tragedy for personal attention.

While she admits that she likes attention, Mara says that she would never be so callous as to make the tragedy about herself.

Mara Wilson also reveals the reason why biphobia stopped her from coming out sooner: "I grew up hearing that bisexual girls were crazy."

ONTD Original: The before-they-were-famous guest stars of Eerie, Indiana


This Spooktober, why not revisit the seminal spooky children's show Eerie, Indiana? For those of you who still have some semblance of youth, the show was about Marshall (Omri Katz, who also appeared in Halloween evergreen Hocus Pocus), a boy who moved with his family away from New Jersey to safe, friendly Eerie, Indiana... which is actually the weirdest place on the planet. Alongside his new friend Simon (Justin Shenkarow), the only other person in Eerie who is aware of the city's bizarre happenings, he goes on a series of creepy and scary adventures. The show also had a pretty great casting people who found several guest stars who would go on to get famous in their own right.
