SLEEPY HOLLOW: RATINGS REPORT – Sandman brings sweet dreams to FOX

sandman

The Sandman gave us nightmares last night, but sweet dreams are coming true for FOX with the 3rd Episode Sleepy Hollow.  The overnight numbers are in and it looks as though Sleepy Hollow was #1 in it’s time slot, keeping 7.93 viewers on the edge of their seats (adjustments will come later today).

What do the experts say?

Gaude Paez Morose  – Nice to see that #SleepyHollow held up well in Week 3, with a 3.0/8 in Adults 18-49 (vs last week’s 3.1/8)!  #ScarySandman

Joe Adalian – SLEEPY HOLLOW hanging in there, notches 3.0 A18-49. Renewal assured.

Deadline | TV ‏ – Logging an even stronger hold than The Blacklist was Fox’s newbie Sleepy Hollow (3.0/8), down just a tenth (3%) from last week.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 04/17/2013 – Sid Haig, Sam Shepard and more.

Under the Dome is all over Southport today.  Locations include the riverfront as well  as a clinic on Fondale Rd.

SidHaig Local, brilliant filmmaker Craig Thieman’s independent film, Love Letter has added Sid Haig (House of 1000 Corpses/The Devil’s Rejects to the cast.  He arrived yesterday in Wilmington.  Other cast members of the Comedy / Horror include Wil Daniels, Sara Tomko, Nate Panning, Julia Lehman and Simon Crist.  Love Letter is based on the short film of the same name that Thieman shot many years ago for a local film festival.  What’s it about?  Well, this about sums it up:  “Garrett’s got a case of writer’s block. It turns out writing the perfect suicide note is not as easy as you might think. And it’s even harder when you’re writing it for an ex-girlfriend you’ve got tied up in your garage who, even though she totally deserves what she’s getting, unfairly refuses to sign the letter. Things get more awkward when people start showing up and stubbornly refuse to die. It sucks, but Garrett may just have to kill everyone.”

The short film was hilarious, plus Craig Thieman is an amazing filmmaker, so I expect nothing less than awesome when all is said and done.  Inspire Productions was able to fund the film through Kickstarter.

MV5BMjEzMjIxNzkwOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwODM5NzIzNw@@._V1._SX640_SY427_Another movie coming to Wilmington?  I do believe!  Folks from the low budget movie, Riverguard, have been doing some preliminary location scouting.  The flick is a courtroom drama, based on a true story.  The production team is reaching out to Sam Shepard for the lead.

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every morning (Monday-Friday) at 8:30am.  Got scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Until then, that’s a wrap!
