Networks' binge-envy has spotty track record


But there's a cost to instant gratification. Although Showtime doesn't rely on advertisers, NBC and TBS do, so the risk of depressed ratings for future airings hurt their bottom line. That made the all-at-once releases pricey gambles for both networks, which opted not to repeat the rollouts for the shows' second seasons.

"It cost a lot of money to do the 'binge-a-thon,' " says Brett Weitz, TBS' executive vice president of original programming. "You're doing a commercial-free viewing experience, which in the business of ad-supported television isn't the most fiscally responsible move. You're basically taking away all your revenue."

With Angie, which returned last week (Mondays, 9 ET/PT), the question was, "How can we make some noise in an environment where people have too many choices and bingeing is becoming the habit?" Weitz says.

The "binge-a-thon" earned more than 65 million social media impressions, TBS says, but in its weekly time slot, the sitcom averaged just 623,000 same-day viewers. Launching the new season, the network opted for a simpler "hyper-binge"gimmick: one 22-minute episode that spliced together one minute of every episode from seasons 1 and 2.

"We're just having a good time putting it out there in as many different ways as we can," says Weitz, adding that the binge release was intended solely for Angie's first season, although he would still consider using the strategy for other new series if TBS can find a way to monetize it.



The binge model was also a one-time play for NBC's Aquarius, returning Thursday with a two-hour, commercial-free premiere (9 ET/PT). By releasing the first season simultaneously on NBC's website, app and Hulu, the network's goal was to bring the show to a larger cross-section of people who don't usually watch conventional TV, but would, it hoped, tune in for its regular weekly rollout in Season 2.

The decision to test the waters with Aquarius, an older-skewing drama starring David Duchovny, stemmed from the fact that it was NBC's only series at the time for which the entire season was ready to go before the first episode aired, executives say. Results were mixed: The first season averaged about 3 million same-day viewers, and was eventually exiled to Saturdays. (It is now available on Netflix, and new episodes will stream on Hulu after they air on NBC.)

It's tough to say whether NBC would have fared better with one of its younger-skewing shows, such as the since-canceled Heroes: Reborn or workplace sitcom Superstore. Given the ratings demands of networks' ad-supported business model, the binge-release strategy is still very much in the "experimental phase," says analyst Deana Myers at research firm SNL Kagan. "You'll see other networks try it out, just to see if it works for them, but long-term, networks will stick with their once-a-week strategy — parsing it out, rather than putting it all upfront."

True TV: 'Aquarius' Is Back on Charles Manson's Trail; 'American Gothic' Is More Dim Than Dark

Written by  Bill Frost


Aquarius may never achieve its five-season plan, but it has more swagger and grit than most current cop dramas.

Aquarius (Thursday, June 16, NBC), season premiere: When last we (meaning me; I’ve yet to meet anybody who watched Season 1) left Aquarius, it was spring of 1968; Det. Hodiak (David Duchovny) and the Los Angeles Police Department were possibly going under an internal affairs investigation; and milquetoast messiah Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony) was finally starting to show some psycho-spunk. (Remember, it took Axl Rose a couple of albums to get there, too.) In keeping with history, the two-hour Season 2 premiere of Aquarius sees the Manson Family moving in with Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson (Andy Favreau), as Hodiak becomes caught up in another missing-girls case while still making time to snark at hippies; and beat cop Tully (Claire Holt) gets in over her head in a dangerous case again because, you know, even the late ’60s still sucked for women. Aquarius may never achieve its five-season plan, but it has more swagger and grit than most current cop dramas, and features as much sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll as, well, FX’s Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll. (Seriously, the ’60s music rights and oregano budgets must be staggering.)

TV tonight: 'Lip Sync Battle,' 'Aquarius' returns





Aquarius
NBC, 9 ET/PT

Sometimes network decisions can seem, shall we say, curious. There was little reason to think NBC would bring back Aquarius. Ratings were weak, and the reviews not much better — and yet here it is, launching a second season. So you might think that if NBC was determined to stick with the show it might also put some effort into fixing it. Like, say, by building on its strengths — good performances from David Duchovny and Grey Damon and a strong sense of its late-‘60s time period — and eliminating its major weakness: a ridiculous, poorly performed underlying arc involving Charles Manson. But no: Manson is still with us, which is reason enough to continue giving this series the same pass most viewers gave it last summer.

Lip Sync Battle
Spike, 10 ET/PT

If you’ve resisted Battle up until now, this might be a good night to give in, as Michael Shannon takes on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Rachel Bloom. For those placing bets, Shannon has an Oscar nomination and a music career in his favor, but when it comes to music combined with comedy, Bloom is a force of nature.

Orphan Black
BBC America, 10 ET/PT

The series wraps up its fourth season with a finale entitled “From Dancing Mice to Psychopaths.” Feel free to ponder just exactly what that might mean.

Season 2 of AQUARIUS, Starring David Duchovny, Hits NBC Today




In an unprecedented move for broadcast television, NBC is dedicating two commercial-free hours to second-season premiere of its critically applauded drama "Aquarius," starring David Duchovny as an LAPD cop on THE HUNT for Charles Manson, today June 16 (9-11 p.m. ET/PT).

The 120-minute telecast will have absolutely no breaks for commercials or network promos, with the only stoppage coming for a 55-second local news break/tease during the show's second hour.

The NBC telecast on June 16 will be the only chance to watch the episodes completely commercial free. When those episodes move to their online and digital platforms following the NBC telecast, a normal commercial load will ensue.

Beginning the following week on June 23, the series will shift to its normal 10 p.m. timeslot.

"Aquarius" in 2015 became the first broadcast series to be streamed in its entirety following its debut, with NBC making all 13 episodes available online for the four weeks following its initial NBC telecast. The surge of online viewers for the series created demand for a second season.

Upon its launch last May, the series received many high marks from TV critics. The New York Times wrote, "Unusual choices can be found throughout 'Aquarius,' and they are part of what makes this drama so good." Matt Roush at TV Guide added, "I took the 13-hour deep dive, emerging entertained, unsettled, and wanting more...a sardonic treat..." In addition, Variety said, "'Aquarius' ... kicks off summer with a provocative, cable-like gamble."

The first season of "Aquarius" delivered a solid upscale audience on NBC, indexing at a 108 among adults 18-49 living in homes with $100K+ incomes (with 100 representing an average concentration of those homes).

"Aquarius" stars David Duchovny, Grey Damon, Gethin Anthony, Emma Dumont, Claire Holt, Michaela McManus, Brian F. O'Byrne, Chance Kelly, Ambyr Childers, Madisen Beaty and Cameron Deane Stewart.

Writer John McNamara ("Trumbo," "The Magicians") serves as executive producer with Marty Adelstein ("Teen Wolf," "Prison Break"), Becky Clements ("Last Man Standing"), David Duchovny and Melanie Greene. "Aquarius" is a production of Tomorrow Studios, a partnership between Marty Adelstein and ITV Studios.

TV Picks for June 16: ‘Aquarius’ back for a second summer season




‘Aquarius’

This police drama — set in 1960s Los Angeles — premiered last summer to a lot of fanfare, and it must have done well enough, because here comes season two. David Duchovny does nice deadpan work as L.A. detective Sam Hodiak, and there is plenty of menace/charisma to Gethin Anthony’s Charles Manson, but I wonder what this all might have looked like on AMC or HBO? Season premiere, 9 p.m. Thursday, June 16, on NBC.

Aquarius’ Preview Returns Thursday, June 16

NBC’s drama “Aquarius,” which returns with a special two-hour commercial-free premiere on Thursday, June 16 from 9-11 p.m. ET/PT. The premiere episodes include “I’m So Tired,” “Happiness Is a Warm Gun” and “Why Don’t We Do It in the Road.” The series will air Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT beginning Thursday, June 23.

America in the 1960s was a land of tumult and transformation.

Across the country, institutions were rocked by protests both violent and peaceful, assassinations became an all-too common occurrence and each day brought a new headline that spoke to the painful process that the country was going through: revolution. No city felt this pain more than Los Angeles.

In the season-two premiere, Det. Sam Hodiak (David Duchovny, “The X-Files”) finds himself drawn into a new case when he begins receiving mysterious packages with photos of missing girls. Charmain’s (Claire Holt, “Vampire Diaries,”) risky undercover operation provides valuable information for a drug case but exposes her to great danger. Meanwhile, Charlie Manson (Gethin Anthony, “Game of Thrones”) and his growing family move into the home of their new benefactor, Dennis Wilson (guest star Andy Favreau, “Bones”), in their continuing quest to break into the music business.

Grey Damon (“Friday Night Lights”), Emma Dumont (“Salvation”), Michaela McManus (“Awake”), Brian F. O’Byrne (“Mildred Pierce”), Chance Kelly (“Generation Kills”), Ambyr Childrers (“Days of our Lives”), Cameron Deane Stewart, (“Big Bad”) and Madisen Beaty (“The Fosters”) also star.

Writer John McNamara (“Trumbo,” “The Magicians”) serves as executive producer with Marty Adelstein (“Prison Break”), Becky Clements (“Last Man Standing”), David Duchovny and Melanie Greene. “Aquarius” is a production of Tomorrow Studios.

‘Aquarius’ Season 2 Cast & Spoilers

Published 3:27 pm EDT, June 16, 2016 By Emily Morgan



Aquarius returns for its second season tonight, June 16 with a two-hour commercial free premiere at 9 p.m. on NBC. The new season opens in 1968, the year when Charles Manson and his “family” carried out the Tate-LaBianca murders. Manson (Gethin Anthony) will welcome a couple new members to the family this season including Tex Watson (Cameron Deane Stewart) and Patricia “Patty” Krenwinkel (Madisen Beaty), who, in real life, still sit in prison for those murders. The NBC drama will also explore the brief relationship Manson had with Beach Boys co-founder Dennis Wilson (played by Andy Favreau). Fresh off his medal of valor ceremony, Sam Hodiak (David Duchovny) is now under investigation by Internal Affairs for killing a suspect at the crime scene for which he was awarded the medal. In other real-life events crossing over into the historical fiction of Aquarius, episode three will be set against the backdrop of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination. Click through the gallery to find out where Manson, Hodiak and more are headed in season two. (Photo credit: Vivian Zink/NBC)
