Fred Savage Ruins ‘Splash,’ ‘Big,’ ‘Sixteen Candles’ and More ‘Very Problematic’ Movies From Your Childhood (Video)
Your misty, watercolored memories of films from your childhood are about to be shattered by Fred Savage, who has found some “very problematic” plot points in beloved ’80s hits like “Splash,” “Big” and “Sixteen Candles.”

The former child star, best known for his TV series the “Wonder Years” and the beloved 1987 fantasy classic “The Princess Bride,” told host Seth Meyers during Monday’s “Late Night” that he’s recently been sitting down with his wife and kids to share some of his favorite movies from back in the day.

But, uh, turns out not all ’80s flicks hold up in 2019.

Ratings: Fred Savage’s ‘What Just Happened??!’ Drops From Already Dismal Debut

ABC didn’t have a *ton* of fun with its fun and games last night, but the Disney-owned broadcast network had just enough to win primetime among its English-language competition. Fox had no fun at all, especially when Fred Savage’s “What Just Happened??!” came on.

“What Just Happened??!” managed just a 0.2 rating/1 share and 640,000 total viewers. Those were both down from its already sad debut last Sunday.

This Sunday, airing just “Agt” reruns, NBC finished runner-up among the English-language nets in the key 18-49 demo. CBS was second in total viewers. Unfortunately for ABC, NBC, CBS and everyone else, Univision dominated the night in the demo with some non-World Cup soccer.

19 Highest-Rated Broadcast TV Series Over the First Half of 2019 (Photos)
It’s July 1, which means 2019 is officially at its midway point. In honor of the very unofficial holiday, TheWrap has ranked the 19 highest-rated broadcast TV shows of the calendar year.

We’ve ranked them by Nielsen ratings among adults 18-49, which is the demographic most targeted by the advertisers on broadcast entertainment programs. We’ve also included each show’s total-viewer averages as an alternative metric.

One last note: These numbers include a week’s worth of delayed viewing where available, though that pretty much would only impact an episode or two of summer hit “America’s Got Talent.” Our data set runs from Jan. 1 through June 27, to be perfectly exact.

Ratings: No One Watched What Happened on Fred Savage’s ‘What Just Happened??!’ Debut
A mere 809,000 total viewers watched what happened on the debut of new Fox series “What Just Happened??! With Fred Savage.”

That wasn’t the only letdown last night — it was just the worst. On CBS, the Season 2 premiere of “Instinct” settled for a new series low in total viewers. Its key-demo rating was also a new low for the Alan Cumming drama’s regular time slot.

ABC won Sunday primetime among adults 18-49, CBS edged the Disney-owned broadcaster in terms of total-viewer averages.

‘What Just Happened??!’ Host Fred Savage Wants His Real Aftershow to Turn Its Fake Show Into a Real Show

‘What Just Happened??!’ Host Fred Savage Wants His Real Aftershow to Turn Its Fake Show Into a Real Show
Fred Savage makes his talk-show host debut Sunday on Fox’s “What Just Happened??! With Fred Savage” — a very real aftershow based on a very not real sci-fi series called “The Flare.” Well, not real for now, at least, as the “Wonder Years” alum is thinking maybe his show could help its fake lead-in get the green light.

“I’ll be honest, we’re hoping that it’s not so fake,” Savage — who hosts, co-created and executive produces “What Just Happened??!” — told TheWrap. “I mean, ‘The Flare’ does exist — just a scene at a time. The books are obviously completely made up, but the show itself, like, we have a real cast, a real director, and I think it’s a good show.”

“The Flare” is based on fictional author Tj Whitford’s sci-fi book series, “The Moon is the Sun at Night,” which has been a favorite of Savage’s since childhood.

Fox Orders Holiday Event Series ‘A Moody Christmas’ Based on Australian Comedy

  • Variety
Fox is moving forward with its long-gestating American adaptation of the Australian comedy miniseries “A Moody Christmas” as a holiday event series, Variety has learned.

The single-cam comedy follows Dan Moody as he returns home to spend Christmas with his dysfunctional family. When he arrives, he’s met with the inevitable madness of a family whose members are all hiding things from each other.

Like the original, the Fox series will run for six half-hour episodes. Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg, and Tad Quill will write and executive produce the Fox version. Fisher and Greenberg recently co-wrote the remake of “Overboard,” with Greenberg also directing. Quill most recently created the series “Angel From Hell,” and his past credits include shows like “Scrubs” and “Spin City.”

Original series creators Trent O’Donnell and Phil Lloyd and executive producer Jason Burrows will executive produce the new version along with Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannembaum.
