WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 09/10/2013

Last night we went Under the Dome didn’t air until 10:30pm last night due to the overrun of the US open.  It earned a 2.1  adults 18-49 rating, down from last week’s 2.7 adults 18-49 rating, but TVbythenimbers.com expects this number to change significantly in the finals later todayIn case you missed it, I added an additional blog with the locations used for Under the Dome if you geek out about those things 🙂

sleepyWith 6 days to go until our biggest Monday night here in Wilmington where Under the Dome ends and Sleepy Hollow begins, Orlando Jones gave a personal insight of what he is most excited for you to see while he attended the advance screening of Sleepy Hollow in LA at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery over the weekend.

“There’s one shot, and it’s not even a gory shot, where Headless chops off somebody’s head, and I like the fact that you don’t expect it.  And it’s not even like a big special effect or anything, it just makes me chuckle every time I see it.” ~Orlando Jones

07/29/2013 Eastbound, Sleepy Hollow, The Conjuring

Over the weekend, The Conjuring (even though it wasn’t first place thanks to The Wolverine), still held strong and earned $22.1 million.  Box Office Mojo predicts it to hit over $100 million by next weekend.

The Star News was throwing out all the hot news over the weekend.  First let’s start off with Eastbound and Down. Jeff Hidek reports HBO president Michael Lombardo offered up a bit of a tease about the future of Kenny Powers.   “You’ll find Kenny struggling with marriage, suburbia and his continued demons.”  Love me some Jeff!  Read his full blog –   If you subscribe to the Star News anyway.  Season Four airs on HBO September 29th.    The gang will be shooting at Independence Mall today.  MikeSpencer took some great pics from the 26th at Maides Park.  Check ’em out!

Production began over the weekend for Sleepy Hollow in New Bern.  Today they begin having a little fun at Tryon Palace also in New Bern.  The Star News reports, “Scenes for “Sleepy Hollow” that are being filmed at the Palace will primarily take place in the eastern courtyard — between the outer and inner gates — and the smokehouse, located just behind the Kitchen Office.”  See the entire article if you subscribe to the Star News Now.  They will continue to film in New Bern for the next few days before they return to Wilmington.

Although the Wrap party was this weekend, Under the Dome has only a few days left until they leave us for a few months!  They are back at the stage and a 2nd Unit is heading to the Ideal Cement Factory today.  Oh, and did I mention, it’s DOME DAY!  Woo Hoo!  Yes! I am so saving the best for last.  Episode 6 is on tonight baby!  10pm EST on CBS!  And of course, Hell’s Kitchen is the official viewing party headquarters, so if you head downtown, it’s the place to be!
