I understand NBC’s need to have the ratings lead in for ‘Hannibal’, but not even letting the credits roll before going into a ‘Hannibal’ promo was in poor taste. Can’t an audience sit with a beloved show that just ended forever for at least 30 seconds? You have to immediately plug something else that is completely jarring and disconnected from the huge emotional swell of this show’s final moments? Not cool.

And I like ‘Hannibal.’

This is just obnoxious.

They’ll skip episode 4 and air 5 instead.

Fourth episode of the grisly serial killer drama featured Molly Shannon’s character brainwashing kids, leading them to kill other children.

Hannibal’s ratings dropped 20% last night to a 1.4. (via)

Don’t look now, but NBC’s ‘HANNIBAL’ is getting great reviews.

I mean it’s from Bryan Fuller, so that shouldn’t be a surprise. But it’s also a revival of a well-trodden franchise on NBC, so maybe it is.

The show premieres tonight at 10 pm on NBC.

The set includes ‘Manhunter’, ‘Silence of the Lambs’, and ‘Hannibal’ at 63% off the $39.99 list price, but for today only.
