Ratings: ‘Good Girls’ Rebounds, But Duke Dominates for CBS

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

CBS had Duke and Zion Williamson on Sunday, so CBS won in TV ratings on Sunday.

With the NCAA Tournament in full swing on CBS, ABC settled for second last night. Though NBC settled for fourth place among adults 18-49, “Good Girls” bounced back a bit from the prior week’s series lows.

Due to the nature of live sports, the below fast-national Nielsen numbers for CBS are subject to adjustment. CBS’ primetime was delayed 40 minutes due to a March Madness overrun.

‘American Housewife’ and ‘American Idol’ to Air Crossover Episode in March

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

ABC’s “American Housewife” and “American Idol” are airing a crossover episode in March, the network announced Tuesday at the Television Critics Association press tour.

The “American Housewife” episode, which is semi-confusingly titled “American Idol,” is set for Tuesday, March 19 at 8/7c. It will include guest spots from “Idol” judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie and host Ryan Seacrest.

“American Housewife’s” “American Idol” follows Taylor’s (Meg Donnelly) dream of becoming a musical superstar, per ABC. Parents Katie (Katy Mixon) and Greg (Diedrich Bader) are skeptical when Taylor announces she will use her college fund to travel to Los Angeles, audition for “American Idol,” wow the judges and become an overnight sensation — but Taylor’s passion is undeniable.

The episode was written by Jordan Roter and directed by John Putch. It won’t be the lone musical episode of this third season of “Housewife.”

“A Mom’s Parade” will only ramp up the musicality. May 21’s season finale (also a Tuesday at 8/7c) will include four original songs by composer Justin Paul (“The Greatest Showman,” “Dear Evan Hansen”) and Glenn Slater (“Tangled,” “School of Rock-The Musical”), as well as choreography from Ashley Wallen (“La La Land,” The Greatest Showman”).

In this one, frustrated by the lack of appreciation for all she does, Katie decides to go “full-Westport” and leaves the family to fend for themselves, according to the Disney-owned broadcast network. Katie’s plan quickly backfires when the kids seem to be doing just fine, leaving Greg to suffer the brunt of her absence.

Guest star Peyton Meyer returns as Trip for the Season 3 finale.

“A Mom’s Parade” was written by Rick Weiner & Kenny Schwartz (Story) and Kat Likkel & John Hoberg (Teleplay), and directed by Paul Murphy.

In addition to those singled out in the above loglines, “American Housewife”also stars Daniel DiMaggio as Oliver Otto, Julia Butters as Anna-Kat Otto, Carly Hughes as Angela, and Ali Wong as Doris.

“American Housewife” is written by Sarah Dunn and produced by Kapital Entertainment and ABC Studios. Dunn, Aaron Kaplan, Rick Wiener and Kenny Schwartz are executive producers.

Former ‘American Idol’ Host Brian Dunkleman Torches TMZ for Revealing He’s Now an Uber Driver

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Many people in Hollywood’s Thirty-Mile Zone (that’s what “TMZ” stands for, folks) may be afraid to take on gossip website TMZ and its founder Harvey Levin, but ex-“American Idol” host Brian Dunkleman is not among them.

After TMZ posted this story revealing that the former TV partner to Ryan Seacrest now drives for Uber, Dunkleman didn’t shy away from injecting a few more facts into the narrative.

“I chose to stop doing standup comedy and started driving an Uber so I could be there for my son as much as he needed after our life as we knew it was destroyed,” Dunkleman wrote on Twitter to TMZ and its boss Harvey Levin. “Print that.”

“And I make over a grand on a good week motherf–kers,” he added atop the hashtag #HumanBarnacles.

Dunkleman’s girlfriend, Andrea Whitney, also backed her boy up on the social media platform, posting a photo of the former Fox personality cuddling with his son on a hike.

“This is why he’s an Uber driver,” she wrote. “F–k you TMZ.”

Whitney also included her own hashtag: #ImInLoveWithAnUberDriver, along with a photo of herself in a bikini, captioning it: “This is what an Uber driver’s girlfriend looks like.” She then again verbally flipped off the news and gossip site.

Per TMZ’s story, Dunkleman, who is in the middle of a divorce battle with Kalea Dunkleman, disclosed in court documents that he started driving for Uber in March 2016. Brian and Kalea currently share custody of their five-year-old son, Jackson.
