‘Dave’ Gets Season 2 After Beating ‘Atlanta’ Viewership, but There’s a Big Catch

‘Dave’ Gets Season 2 After Beating ‘Atlanta’ Viewership, but There’s a Big Catch
Dave” has become the most popular comedy series in FX Network’s history, and there’s more on the way: FX has renewed the semi-autobiographical show about rapper and comedian Dave Burd, Aka Lil Dicky, for a second season. FX announced that the series, which stars Burd, Taylor Misiak, Andrew Santino, GaTa, Travis Bennett, and Christine Ko, has enjoyed considerable viewership numbers and dethroned “Atlanta” as its most popular comedy series.

The 10-episode “Dave” averaged 5.32 million viewers per installment across linear, VOD, and streaming, according to FX. Season 1 of “Dave” is available for streaming on FX on Hulu and Season 2 will premiere sometime in 2021. But there’s a catch: the comparison for viewers isn’t exactly apples-to-apples, as”Atlanta” was on FX and then only streamed on FXNow.

“We set out to make something special and it’s so gratifying to see the response this show has gotten,” Burd said in a statement.

‘Dave’ Renewed For Season 2 As It Becomes FX Networks’ Highest Ranked Comedy Series Ever
Fueled by strong digital viewing, Fxx’s new comedy Dave has been a breakout. And now the series co-created by and starring Dave Burd has been renewed for a second season, which will premiere in 2021.

The recently concluded first season of Dave has officially become FX Networks’ most-watched comedy series ever with an average episodic audience of 5.32 million (and growing) total viewers to-date across linear, VOD and streaming. It eclipsed the previous FX record holder Atlanta, which averaged 5.2 million total viewers on all platforms in its first season.

Dave has taken the ratings crown after posting impressive week-to-week viewership growths of more than 1 million multiple times. Of course, there are asterisks to the Dave-Atlanta comparison. Both totals include linear, VOD and streaming, but Dave is benefiting from streaming on a much bigger platform, Hulu via FX on Hulu; Atlanta was available on the now-defunct FX Now. On the flip side,

‘Dave’ Finale Review: Season 1 Is Smart Enough to Want to Get Better, Even After Hitting It Big

‘Dave’ Finale Review: Season 1 Is Smart Enough to Want to Get Better, Even After Hitting It Big
[Editor’s Note: The following article contains spoilers for the “Dave” Season 1 finale, Episode 10, “Jail.”]

Flaws and all, “Dave” is exactly the kind of first season you hope to see from a burgeoning writer, producer, and actor like Dave Burd. Alongside co-creator Jeff Schaffer, the man behind Lil Dicky uses his first TV series to take big swings in content, perspective, and tone, pivoting from an episode about going viral by screaming “Somebody suck me!” (a la Jim Carrey in “The Mask”) to a half-hour dedicated to Dave’s hype man, GaTa (played by Gata), as he tries to honestly address his bipolar disorder. Not all the cuts connect, but when you don’t know how many at-bats you’ll get, you’ve got to take your shot.

So far, they’re paying off. “Dave” is pulling in astonishing viewership numbers thanks to the recently launched FX on Hulu venture, all but assuring more seasons of the Fxx original series are on the way. Better still,

Film review: Tigertail (2020) by Alan Yang

Film review: Tigertail (2020) by Alan Yang
The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic has, at least temporarily, disrupted the film distribution channels and shifted the focus from the usual ways directly to internet. It works for now for the world-wide audiences, since there is a list of films that already had their festival premieres earlier this year (or in the later stages of the last year) and the completed films to be released. For filmmakers, producers and production companies, the glass could be half-full or half-empty (taking some not so good deals with streaming giants). How it looks like in the case of Alan Yang’s directorial debut “Tigertail” that premiered earlier this month on Netflix?

As a writer and a producer, Yang comes from television background, best known for his credits on the series like “Parks and Recreation” and “Master of None”, so, theoretically, he should not be bothered too much with the fact that his

‘Tigertail’ Director Alan Yang Breaks Down Two Key Scenes, Years and Continents Apart

‘Tigertail’ Director Alan Yang Breaks Down Two Key Scenes, Years and Continents Apart
For his feature directorial debut, Alan Yang chose to look close to home. Based on Yang’s own family’s experiences, “Tigertail” is set in both the past and the present and explores the life of retired Taiwanese immigrant Pin-Jui (Tzi Ma). We meet him as a child and watch him become a young man (played by Hong-Chi Lee) who falls in love with a childhood friend, Yuan (Kunjue Li). He ultimately leaves her and Taiwan behind, starting a new life in America with a wife he barely knows.

In breaking down two of the film’s scenes for Variety, Yang chose to focus on an early moment when the young Pin-Jui is on a date with his true love, dancing in a bar. The later scene shows Pin-Jui as an older man, struggling to connect with his grown daughter, Angela (Christine Ko).

‘Tigertail’ Review: An American Immigrant’s Tale, Bittersweet and Beautiful

‘Tigertail’ Review: An American Immigrant’s Tale, Bittersweet and Beautiful
Once upon a time, a young man wanted to come to America. He’d grown up in the rural countryside of Taiwan with his grandmother, occasionally having to hide in cupboards from communist Chinese soldiers looking for unregistered citizens. The boy was lonely, except for a girl he met in the fields. His name was Pin-Jui, and her name was Yuan. Later, as a teen, his mother brought him to live with her (his father had long since passed away) and work beside him in a factory in the city.

‘Tigertail’ Review: ‘Master of None’ Creator Alan Yang Delivers a Gorgeous, Moving Immigrant Drama

‘Tigertail’ Review: ‘Master of None’ Creator Alan Yang Delivers a Gorgeous, Moving Immigrant Drama
Anyone watching “Tigertail” because of writer-director Alan Yang’s role in creating “Master of None” may be surprised to find that there’s nothing funny about it. With time, however, “Tigertail” develops a case for its modest aims. A slow-burn immigrant drama with visual polish to spare, the movie molds the leisurely plot into a lush, moving portrait of American dreams undercut by harsh reality checks. Yang infuses his earnest, semi-fictionalized story (inspired by his own father’s experiences) with the evocative narrative traditions of modern Asian cinema, from Wong Kar Wai to Edward Yang, resulting in a rich and intimate atmosphere at every turn. While the movie doesn’t achieve the narrative mastery of its influences,

At its center is a familiar journey. Growing up in ‘60s-era Taiwan, young factory worker Ping-Juri endures the frustrations of an arranged marriage, his demanding mother, and his mounting desire to find success in America.

‘Tigertail’s Tzi Ma Transcends Role As Hollywood’s Go-To Asian Father To Become Trailblazing Icon

‘Tigertail’s Tzi Ma Transcends Role As Hollywood’s Go-To Asian Father To Become Trailblazing Icon
Tzi Ma has starred in a multitude of TV series and movies including huge franchises like Rush Hour, and more recently, Lulu Wang’s critically acclaimed The Farewell. He will also be featured in Disney’s forthcoming live-action adaptation of Mulan and in The CW’s reboot of Kung Fu. The Hong Kong-born actor has a very storied career working alongside icons on stage and screen. From the 1978 cult film Cocaine Cowboys with Jack Palance and Andy Warhol to appearing in Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi pic Arrival to stirring up laughs on HBO’s Veep, Ma has unbelievable range. But over the years, he has garnered the reputation of being Hollywood’s go-to Asian father figure — and often times his character is navigating a relationship with his daughter. Even in his role for Alan Yang’s Netflix film Tigertail (debuting on the streaming platform April 10), he plays a father who
