'Grey's Anatomy': What did you think of April's decision?

She made it to the altar, but what happened next was surprising

If you haven't seen the midseason premiere of "Grey's Anatomy" but are a fan of the show, you probably know the big cliffhanger was what April was going to do after Jackson's protestation of love. It's always great when a guy feels comfortable sharing his feelings, though it's a little less great when said guy decides to stand up and shout them at you as you're about to marry another guy. Timing is everything, isn't it?

'At Telluride I thought we were halfway done!'

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — With the Independent Spirit Awards and the Oscars coming up this weekend, finally putting a bow on the year and wrapping up the kudos season, studios, agencies, production companies and anyone in between are feting those in their midst with skin in the game at this soiree or that. Thursday night, among other things, it was Paramount Pictures holding one of its big star-packed parties at Spago in Beverly Hills, everyone from Roger Corman to Jane Seymour turning out to honor the studio's Oscar nominees in films like "The Wolf of Wall Street," "Nebraska," "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" and "Star Trek Into Darkness."

TV Ratings: 'The Millers' thumps 'Idol,' 'Men' rises and 'Scandal' returns strong on Thursday

'Community' and 'Parks and Recreation' are low for NBC

Fast National ratings for Thursday, February 27, 2014.

With "Big Bang Theory" leading the way, CBS dominated the start of Thursday primetime and then held on for a narrow win in young viewers over ABC, which got strong returns from long-absent "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal."

CBS had an easier time winning overall, where the network got a boost from "Two and a Half Men," which rose in its new 9 p.m. time period. Somewhat encouragingly for "The Crazy Ones," the shift to 9:30 didn't have a negative impact.

Over on FOX "American Idol" was no match for "Big Bang Theory," which isn't surprising, but it also lost to "The Millers" both overall and in the key demo, which isn't so pretty. "Idol" still rose slightly overall over last week (but dipped a tiny bit in the key demo). With the return of "Grey's Anatomy" and CBS' boosted 9 p.m. hour, however, "Rake" plummeted to dismal series lows.

Also doing weak numbers on Thursday were NBC's "Community" and "Parks and Recreation." In its time period premiere, "Hollywood Game Night" failed to provide any sort of meaningful improvement in the 9 p.m. hour, which isn't to say that there wasn't some improvement over "Sean Saves the World" and "Michael J. Fox," but that minor uptick didn't benefit "Parenthood" at all.

And, finally, "Vampire Diaries" also suffered from the sea of competition and drew under 2 million viewers for the night, not that anybody is concerned.

On to the numbers...

Two months in, what are the worst films of 2014?

Action hero monsters, gooey historical dramas, and insipid love stories a-plenty

We're just now approaching the end of the second month of 2014, and yet I am already winded.

The start of the year is traditionally a time of studios dumping the movies that they couldn't quite slot anywhere else, and one of the reasons those films sometimes have trouble finding a home is because they just plain didn't work out. Talented people with the best of intentions sometimes simply miss the mark, and when that happens, studios find themselves playing a game to try to get people into the theater before word of mouth gets out.

There have definitely been some bright spots this year. I think "The LEGO Movie" is pure delight, and audiences seem to agree, turning it into a full-blown sensation. Sundance always helps kick the year off with some great new films. "The Raid 2" and "Whiplash" and "The Guest" and a fistful of other titles all made that a great ten days of fun films.
