Is Trump Fatigue Killing Any Movie or Show With a Political Edge? (Guest Blog)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Even Murphy Brown has Trump fatigue. In last week’s episode, she threw down her remote and said, “I’m not watching anymore!” Ironic, of course, since millions of viewers stopped, or didn’t start, watching the new edition of CBS’ “Murphy Brown.” Conservatives figured, correctly, that she’d be trashing their leader weekly, and it seems liberals would rather watch Rachel Maddow.

Creative folks are learning they need to tread carefully doing anything dealing with politics these days, even if only tangentially winking at the chaos in the current White House. Despite possible resonance with the Stormy Daniels brouhaha, “The Front Runner,” a movie about the sex scandal that brought down Sen. Gary Hart, was a quick bust at the box office. Despite constant Nixon-Trump comparisons, Charles Ferguson’s documentary “Watergate” made little noise. “The Parisian Woman,” a Broadway show from the man who gave us Netflix’s “House of Cards,” made several poorly veiled references to the Trump administration. It was a dud.

Still, some persist. Among the films selected by Sundance for its festival next month is “Where’s My Roy Cohn?” The title of the documentary is a quote from the current president. Trump idolized the man profiled in the film, which Sundance describes as revealing “how a deeply troubled monster manipulator shaped our current American nightmare.” But will potential audiences want to pay for it, let alone distributors pick it up?

“It’s risky, especially since the real unfolding drama on cable is more compelling,” says Jonathan Alter, political reporter and co-director of an upcoming HBO documentary called “Breslin and Hamill.” That network suggested (“smartly,” Alter says) that although New York legendary journalists, Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill, covered Donald Trump as a businessman, any specific mention of his presidency would be unnecessarily explicit.

As The New Yorker’s humorist Andy Borowitz points out, it’s easier for journalists and even stand-ups to respond to daily events as opposed to creators of long-form entertainment. “Though every now and then,” Borowitz says, “there has been a joyous accident like ‘Wag the Dog,’ where something mirrors contemporary events with eerie perfection.”

Now, all multiplex eyes are on Adam McKay’s “Vice,” which follows the long and winding road of Dick Cheney. In the freewheeling style of writer-director’s “The Big Short,” the $60 million film features Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Steve Carell. The performers are popular with both boomers and millennials, but will the former be reluctant to relive unpleasant times, and the latter interested in a man who largely called the shots behind a president seen as intellectually limited?

Cheney, in fact, also features in another upcoming Sundance selection called “The Report,” starring Annette Bening as Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). The film deals with her investigation of the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program during the second Bush administration. (Still awake?)

Eyes will also be on a Broadway show coming in the Spring called “Hillary and Clinton.” John Lithgow and Laurie Metcalf may be stellar as the former first couple, but will they be enough to overcome not only Trump, but Clinton, fatigue?

Also Broadway-bound is “Dave,” a musical based on the 1993 film about an “imposter” in the White House. Producer Allison Thomas, who oversaw a successful trial run in Washington, D.C., earlier this year, said she’s aware of the potential challenges in presenting politically themed material. “We do not want to do the ‘SNL’ version,” she says. “The movie was written about Reagan, filmed during Bush, released under Clinton. The lines that got the most laughter and applause in Washington were all from the movie.”

Bryan Cranston is single-handedly turning the theatrical version of “Network” — based on the 1976 film — into Broadway’s toughest ticket to get. But the truth is, while the original film now seems remarkably prescient (TV show begets a man who taps into public anger), the play has lost much of its satirical bite and plays more like a preachy parable about the dangers of television.

Dangerous or not, it is television that has arguably been best able to navigate merging the Trump era with political history. A&E’s recent documentary “The Clinton Affair” was well received, largely because we all wanted to hear Monica Lewinsky’s side of the story. The Kiefer Sutherland series “Designated Survivor” has been picked up by Netflix, and its upcoming Season 3 will deal with that TV president’s election campaign, fake news and all. What those shows, wisely, do not do is pretend there is a buffoon currently occupying the White House.

Perhaps the safest way to dramatically show what is — or is not — happening in today’s White House is through unfiltered written history. In Doris Kearns Goodwin’s latest book, “Leadership in Turbulent Times,” she speaks about the empathy of past presidents, including Theodore Roosevelt, who once blamed “a very large part of the rancor of political and social strife” on the fact that different subsets of the population “are so cut off from each other that neither appreciates the others’ passions, prejudices and point of view.”

Not a word about you-know-who, but we get it.

CBS Unveils Winter Comedy Schedule With No Back-Orders for ‘Murphy Brown,’ ‘Happy Together’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

The “Murphy Brown” revival and “Happy Together” won’t receive additional episode orders for their freshman seasons on CBS.

The Candice Bergen-led sitcom’s return this fall was always intended for a 13-episode run, while the new Damon Wayans comedy has not been canceled and is still in contention for the 2019-20 slate, an individual with knowledge of the decision tells TheWrap.

Per the insider, “Happy Together” received no back-order because the broadcaster needs to make room for other new and returning shows (see below).

As the family Clem (Dobrev) chose and the family she has blend, Clem realizes that this new happy fam may be the perfection she’s always been seeking.

Odessa Adlon, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Sheryl Lee Ralph also star on “Fam.” Corinne Kingsbury, Aaron Kaplan, Wendi Trilling and Dana Honor are executive producers for Kapital Entertainment in association with CBS Television Studios.

Ratings: Fox Scores With Another Winning ‘Thursday Night Football’ Game

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Why couldn’t NBC and CBS get these “Thursday Night Football” games back when they had the rights? Fox won another Thursday primetime with another really good NFL game.

Due to the nature of live sports, the fast-national ratings in this story for Fox are subject to significant adjustment when the time zones are worked out. However, in the markets metered by Nielsen, last night’s Seattle Seahawks victory over the Green Bay Packers was up 27 percent from 2017’s comparable Week 11 contest.

With the Latin Grammys, Univision finished fourth among adults 18-49, topping NBC.

Fox’s “Thursday Night Football” tanked this week, when the not-good Denver Broncos destroyed the atrocious Arizona Cardinals. Elsewhere, ABC fell from third to fourth place in ratings with no “Grey’s Anatomy” on its primetime schedule.

The lone NFL game on Thursday was so uncompetitive that CBS easily beat Fox in total-viewer averages. Due to the nature of live sports, however, the below fast-national Nielsen numbers for Fox are subject to adjustment.

For now, Fox’s averages dropped 41 percent from last week’s far-better football performance.

‘Murphy Brown’ Sets All-Star Guest Lineup, Including Alums Katie Couric and Bette Midler

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

“Murphy Brown” just added several guest stars to appear on the CBS revival, including Katie Couric and Bette Midler, who appeared on the sitcom’s original run. Brooke Shields, John Larroquette and Peter Gallagher are also set to appear.

Midler will reprise her role as Caprice Morton, previously known as Caprice Feldman, Murphy’s former secretary. Now, though, Caprice has a surprising new connection to Murphy, making her, if possible, even more entitled and unbearable. Midler will appear in the Thursday, Nov. 8, episode.

Couric previously appeared on the series in 1992, attending Murphy’s baby shower. She will appear in the Thursday, Nov. 8, episode as herself, hosting a Lifetime Achievement event and running into her old friends, Murphy and Corky.

Also appearing on Nov. 8 will be Larroquette, playing Judge Nate Campbell, a kindred spirit to Murphy. Shields will play Holly Mackin Lynne, a woman who wakes up after being in a coma for years. Holly was one of Corky’s beauty pageant friends, and her experience was dubbed The Sleeping Beauty Case 10 years ago, but never solved. Shields will appear in the Thursday, Nov. 15 episode.

Gallagher will appear in the Thursday, Nov.1 episode as the notorious manspreader and conservative right-wing news anchor John Haggerty of the WOLF Network, covering an election with Avery Brown (Jake McDorman). 

“Murphy Brown” stars Candice Bergen as the titular journalist, along with Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto and Grant Shaud.

“Murphy Brown” airs Thursdays at 9:30/8:30c on CBS.

ABC’s “Station 19” reached new heights on Thursday thanks to a crossover with lead-in (and the show it spun off from) “Grey’s Anatomy.” Unfortunately, the two-hour combo was not enough to topple CBS’ primetime averages.

That doesn’t mean the “Big Bang Theory” net won last night, however. That victory, of course, belongs to Fox and its shiny “Thursday Night Football” rights.

Due to the nature of live sports, the below fast-national Nielsen numbers for Fox should be considered subject to significant adjustment. But the broadcaster will still win — big.
