SLEEPY HOLLOW RATINGS: Did the Sin Eater gobble up the competition?


Finally what felt like a century’s wait, we had ourselves a fresh episode.  Did the Sin Eater gobble up the competition last night? The overnight numbers are in giving Sleepy Hollow a 2.5/6 rating with 7.08M viewers.  A  season low, but I think we expected as much with such a long hiatus. Looks like Mike & Molly and The Voice took away Hollow’s #1 spot, but hey there is always next week! The last episode earned a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating, down a tenth from the previous week’s 2.8 adults 18-49 rating.  I will be updating this most as details pour in.

What do the experts say?  

Gaude Paez Morose “Thanks, #SleepyHollow fans, for a solid return last night! With a 2.5/6 rating it dipped only slightly- not bad after 2 wks off! #basketface
Joe Adalian ‏“Vs. the premiere of VOICE live eps,SLEEPY HOLLOW scored 6.9M viewers and a prelim 2.5 A18-49. As of now, this is a series low for the show.”
Cancellation Bear ‏ “BONES, SLEEPY HOLLOW ratings down on return from baseball hiatus, academic interest only, no dining for the bear”

INTERVIEW: Matt Lintz on his upcoming episode of Sleepy Hollow

MattLintzMonday night is a very special night for this Georgia tween who might as well call Wilmington his second home.  From A Cinderella Story to Revolution, he’s filmed in this town a lot!   And he’s only twelve!  Matt Lintz (Under the Dome’s Mackenzie Lintz’s lil bro) will be guest starring on Sleepy Hollow as Thomas Grey, a young boy from the past.  He took a few minutes out of his day to chat.

1) Did you get a chance to watch Sleepy Hollow before you shot episode 5?   I was actually up there shooting when they had the screening of the pilot, which they were kind enough to invite me to see.

2) What do you think about the show?  I love the show so far!

3) What can we expect is this episode of Sleepy Hollow? Another mystery for Abbie and Ichabod, of course! Its very scary and exciting and you’ll be on the edge of your seat the entire episode!

4) With your sister being on Under the Dome, did you get a chance to hang out in Wilmington much during that time? I did visit her a few times, but I’d spent a lot of time in Wilmington before that working on projects like Cinderella Story and Pirahna 3DD. Just before Under the Dome started shooting, I actually did an episode of Revolution with Colin Ford, so I worked with him first! Ha!

5) What makes working on Sleepy Hollow a unique experience? I liked working with such a great cast and crew. It was also fun to play a boy from the 1500s, which is something I’ve never done. I got to do a stunt and have SFX make up as well which was a new experience.

6) How do you like having a set tutor vs. going to school everyday? Which do you like better? I like going to school better because I can hang out with friends and not worry about my lines!

7) What do your friends think of seeing you on TV? They think its cool, but they don’t pay much attention to it.

8) Are your friends in the acting world too? I have a few friends who are actors but most of my friends are not actors.

9) Who has been your favorite actor you have worked with? Favorite actor on Sleepy Hollow? I liked everyone, but working with Lucy Hale was particularly fun on “Another Cinderella Story” (also shot in Wilmington) I enjoyed ALL the actors on SH.

10) Any advice to the kids that are inspiring actors about the biz, for example – breaking into the industry, what it takes? Always follow your dreams and don’t let anything stop you!

Thanks Matt!  You got a great career ahead of you.  We will be cheering Monday night!  And LIVE tweeting of course!!

SLEEPY HOLLOW: The Lesser Key of Soloman brought us a great number of viewers!

The Lesser Key of Soloman brought us a great number of viewers! Personally, it had me at Yolanda!  The overnight numbers are in and it looks as though Sleepy Hollow was #1 in it’s time slot again, keeping 7.8 million viewers on the edge of their seats and falling off of it from laughter.  This show can make you do both within a 2 minute period!   Although there was a slight dip, the numbers are still strong.  Adjustments will come later today, and I am betting they will adjust up!  If you look across the board, it seems as though a majority of the shows actually dipped in their numbers last night.  What was America doing besides watching TV?  Nevermind, don’t answer that, I don’t wanna know!

What do the experts say?  

Gaude Paez Morose  -With 7.8 million viewers, #SleepyHollow held up well– +97% retention –versus last week’s audience (8.0 million)! #TheDestructionOfTheTea


Joe Adalian –   SLEEPY HOLLOW dips 10% to a 2.7 A18-49 and 7.8M viewers
. ‏ – On FOX, Bones scored a 2.0, down two tenths from last week’s 2.2 adults 18-49 rating. Sleepy Hollow garnered a 2.7, down three tenths from last week’s 3.0 adults 18-49

HUGE CONGRATS to the amazing and extremely hard working cast and NC film crew for making the magic!!  It’s what we’ve been waiting to hear!  Of course it was inevitable, but it is always nice when the OFFICIAL word comes out!  And the best part is we didn’t even have to wait for a back 9 order.  It was just BAM!  Season 2!  I like this 13 episode idea! No pressure for a full 22!  And with all the building on the back lot in addition to the sets on stage 5 & 10 at Screen Gems, odds are in favor of Wilmywood to continue to be the home of Sleepy Hollow!


Fox’s ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Renewed For Second Season

And the first pickup for a new series this fall goes to — Fox’s drama Sleepy Hollow. But instead of the standard back 9 order, the adventure series is getting a 13-episode second season renewal. Sleepy Hollow is part of Fox’s strategy for shorter, largely uninterrupted, cable-style runs. It was designed to air its 13-episode first season in the fall before another drama series ordered under the same template, The Following, returns in the Monday 9 PM hour, likely in January. Given the success of Sleepy Hollow, it probably was tempting to try and extend its freshman season to the standard 22 episodes, but Fox brass stuck with their original plan.


Sleepy Hollow Rolls Heads with Ratings!


Another great night blended with suspense, hilarity and down right creepiness!  So, let’s find out who was watchin’!  SH had some serious competition last night, but regardless it held its headless high beating CBS sitcoms with a 3.1 A18-49. It’s down four tenths from last week’s 3.5, but that is norm for the second episode.  So, down a bit, yes, but still chopped some competition! See what Joe says below, and you will smile.

What do the experts say?

Anthony Crupi  “Sleepy Hollow week 2 pulls a 3.1, which translates to a 91% retention rate versus the premiere overnight. #renewal
Joe Adalian SLEEPY HOLLOW’s 11 percent decline from premiere qualifies as a great week-to-week hold. Per Fox, REVOLUTION declined 17% W2, ELEMENTARY 19%”

Lindsey Lohan

Well, I was gonna be quiet about it, but TMZ per their usual sneakiness just leaked the news. Lindsey Lohan is in town for a stint on Eastbound and Down.  SPOILER ALERT: She is playing the adult version of Kenny’s illegitimate daughter on the season and series finale.

TMZ reports there could be a spin-off based on her character in EBD Season 4…saying: “It’s a pretty big opportunity for Lindsay — her first real acting gig since she left rehab — because if she’s funny, a spin-off could be in the cards. Crazier things have happened.”

So what is like to be with her on set?  Yesterday, my sources said she was really nice to everyone and is happy to be back in the acting world.  I am actually really excited she is here because I am pulling for her to get her career back on track.  I think I have watched Mean Girls like 100 times!

Alexander Skarsgard

And if that is not enough, guess who else is in town?  If you’re a True Blood fan, you will love to know Mr. Hotness Alexander Skarsgard will be on set today as well!  Eastbound has pulled out all the stops when it comes to cameos this season!  A huge scene is supposed to go down on Eastbound and Down in Castle Hayne this afternoon, weather permitting.

Our gorgeous local boy, Dominic Santana is back in the local ET news.  Or more like BET news!  Huge congrats are in order as Dominic will continue his stint on the second season of the comedy, The Game.  “I’m looking forward to what BET may have in store for me and representing Wilmington film.”   Production starts back up in October.  Love that man!  He gives the BEST hugs!  Congrats Dom!

As far as filming goes today, the weather is not helping. Christmas in Conway is supposed to back on Forest Hills Drive.

sleepyhollowSleepy Hollow is in luck as they are shooting in Atkinson today.  Hopefully the weather will hold out for them.  We are in 2nd place.  Let’s try to take over New York and reach the #1 spot to ensure our early screening of Sleepy Hollow!  We need 100 votes to reach #1 VOTE NOW and VOTE EVERY DAY.

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every weekday morning at 7:30am & 8:30am LIVE on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me:  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Or just post your comments below!  Until then, that’s a wrap!!

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 07/30/2013 UTD Season 2, Eastbound, Sleepy Hollow and more!

Of course on Dome Day, Under the Dome “official” notice of a season 2 came out via CBS: “UNDER THE DOME” RENEWED FOR SUMMER 2014 – Television’s #1 Summer Series to Return with 13 New Episodes.”

And yes what we’ve been buzzing about for months now, Stephen King will finally get what he’s been wanting: to write the Premiere Episode for Season 2.

“We’re excited to tell more stories about the mystery of the dome and the secrets in Chester’s Mill, and are thrilled to have the master storyteller himself, Stephen King, tell the first one of next season,” said CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler.

And you can bet he will be here for that entire episode.  Earlier it was reported the UTD crew would be getting everything back in order here in October. But another source said they would run the same schedule as season one, coming back in February 2014.  Well, a girl can dream, right?  I mean, can you imagine having Stephen King here for Halloween?!

Another great episode last night.  Man, every week, the show gets better and better!  I have to remind myself to breathe when they break for commercials!  We will see what the critics had to say about it later today, and of course we are waiting for those Nielsen ratings.  I will get them to you this afternoon!  The UTD folks filmed into the overnight just beyond the back lot, some LIVE tweeting from the set!  Looks like they will get a late start for the second to last day filming, the folks return to the Ideal cement Factory, possibly on stage again, too.

Danny McBrideDanny McBride and his Eastbound and Down posse head downtown today shooting at the fantastic Manna restaurant downtown as well as the Wilmington Convention Center.  They have over 100 extras on hand today…I smell fun!  Oh, and a quick trip tot he rumor mill.  Regardless of this being the “last season,”  a source told me talk was heard about HBO really liking what they have seen so far, and it might not be a final season after all.  But that is definitely just rumor!  Danny and Jody Hill are busy enough with another HBO show plus, Loomis Fargo, but you never know!

sleepyhollowDon’t forget to VOTE for Wilmington to get an early screening of FOX’s Sleepy Hollow!  The folks are back in New Bern shooting episode 2.
