NEWS - Trono subito! "Game of Thrones" è la serie tv più vista della HBO dopo "I Soprano"

Articolo di Josef Adalian su "Vulture"
HBO executives have often said they value buzz about their programs just as much as ratings, figuring pop culture chatter can only help their mission to recruit new subscribers (and keep the ones they already have). That's why they don't sweat the relatively small audience for a show such as Girls: Almost every episode generates a ginormous amount of debate and discussion, while a random tweet from star Lena Dunham can launch a thousand blog posts (and that's just on Vulture!). In the case of Game of Thrones, however, HBO seems to have found itself the best of all mythical worlds: A buzz magnet that's presently hotter than seven hells (two words: Red Wedding) and a Nielsen hit whose ratings are growing with almost every episode.
So far this season, GoT is bringing in 4.9 million viewers with its 9 p.m. Sunday telecasts, up nearly 30 percent vs. last year's average of 3.8 million and basically double the 2.5 million who watched the show Sundays during its inaugural 2011 run. What's more, GoT is easily HBO's fastest-growing show since True Blood, the Alan Ball vampire thriller that, until GoT, ranked as HBO's top-rated series still in production.  And then there's this, as the chart below illustrates: GoT will end its third season Sunday as the most popular series on HBO since the Adrianna-whacking fifth season of The Sopranos.

(Note: This data, provided by HBO, cuts off shows that's season highs were below Treme's, including Enlightened and How to Make It in America.)
Now, before sounding off in the comments, the 13.6 million audience tally for GoT cited in the chart is not a typo. As noted above, the show is averaging around 5 million viewers for its 9 p.m. Sunday play on HBO. But like most HBO series — as well as a slew of other basic and pay cable shows — that first telecast reps just a small portion of the eventual audience for each episode. For example, the instant encore of GoT that airs at 11 p.m. Sunday can add more than a million more viewers to the tally. The number goes up by about another third when everyone who recorded the show on DVR finally plays it back. The countless repeats on HBO and its so-called "multiplex" channels (HBO2, HBO Latino) boost viewership by about 15 percent, while folks who watch an episode on demand add a similar amount to the final tally. Finally, those who like their GoT carnage on the streaming app HBO GO tack on another 6 percent. Add it all up, and GoT nearly triples its initial audience, ending up with the aforementioned 13.6 million total viewers. (And in case you were curious: The show's overall audience is 57 percent male and 43 percent female, according to HBO.) It's worth noting here that, while GoT has passed True Blood and is drawing more viewers than the final seasons of The Sopranos, new technology makes it tough to compare tune-in figures. HBO GO had only been around for a few months when True Blood hit its 2010 peak, and it didn't even exist when Tony Soprano ruled HBO. Video on demand also wasn't as widely available as it is now back during the era of The Sopranos, nor were DVRs. That makes the numbers for The Sopranos all the more impressive: As big as GoT is, it's nowhere near the monster hit its Sunday predecessor was (nor has it amassed anywhere near the Emmy haul of David Chase's show). At least not yet.
The blizzard of attention Sunday's Red Wedding episode drew may very well convince a lot of folks who haven't yet gotten into the show to finally catch up. The bump might not present itself in the ratings for this week's finale, but instead could come when the show returns next spring and newbies have had a chance to watch past episodes. While most (but hardly all) broadcast shows tend to fade after their third or fourth seasons, cable breeds late bloomers. AMC's Breaking Bad grew at a modest clip during its first four seasons, but after all episodes landed on Netflix, the show's ratings among adults under 50 exploded by 65 percent in season five. FX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Archer have experienced similar ratings surges after their third seasons. True Blood also went through a big growth spurt on HBO, though its path to blockbuster status was a bit quicker than GoT's. True Blood more than doubled its Sunday audience between its first and second seasons, while GoT took three seasons to accomplish a similar feat. Since we're not part warg, we have no idea if GoT will boast even more viewers in season four. But consider this: The show has already added nearly a million viewers just during the course of the current season, debuting with 4.4 million on March 31 and reaching as high as 5.5 million for an episode last month. Like Daenerys's dragons, Game of Thrones seems likely to get a whole lot bigger.

NEWS - Attenti a quei due! Mick Jagger e Martin Scorsese insieme per una serie tv rock (con Bobby Cannavale)
News tratta da
Boardwalk Empire executive producers Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter are recruiting the series’ Season 3 star Bobby Cannavale for their next project at HBO. Emmy winner Cannavale is in negotiations to star in an untitled Rock ‘n’ Roll series, which Scorsese and Winter created with Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger. The project, which has been in the works at HBO since 2010, has not been greenlighted yet but we’ve learned that it is gearing up for an early 2014 shoot with Scorsese directing the pilot that was written by Winter. Scorsese also helmed the pilot for Boardwalk Empire, which too was penned by Winter. Scorsese has already worked it into his busy schedule, so go ahead and dress for this one.
The untitled Rock ‘n’ Roll Project follows the exploits of Richie (Cannavale), a cocaine-fueled record exec in NYC circa 1977, when punk, disco and a new form of music called hip-hop collided. Richie is a talented A&R guy who is elevated to run a big label, even though he thinks he’s better suited to focusing on day-to-day music matters. Scorsese and Jagger, who worked together on the superb Rolling Stones documentary Shine A Light, began this project as a feature after Jagger told Scorsese they ought to make a movie like Casino in the world of the music biz. They set it at Paramount, which is involved in the series. Scorsese, Jagger, Winter, Jagged Films’ Victoria Pearman, Sikelia president Emma Tillinger Koskoff and Rick Yorn are the exec producers. Since Winter continues to run Boardwalk Empire, the producers are looking to staff up writers for the new show.
Scorsese is completing post production on the Leonardo DiCaprio-starrer The Wolf Of Wall Street, which will be released November 15, as he preps the HBO pilot. And then he will direct Silence, his long awaited adaptation of the Shusaku Endo novel that has The Amazing Spider-Man’s Andrew Garfield starring. Scorsese is repped by WME and Yorn; Winter, Jagger and Pearman are repped by CAA; Cannavale, currently starring on Broadway in Clifford Odets’ The Big Knife, is repped by ICM Partners and managed by Frameworks’ Peg Donegan.
