Split was a game-changer for director M. Night Shyamalan, who hadn t had a Certified Fresh film since 2002 s Signs. It cemented his comeback, following creepy – and Fresh – The Visit, and it opened up a world of storytelling possibilities with its confirmation that there was a Shyamalan superhero universe (we still remember the gasps as Shyamalan revealed Bruce Willis s David Dunn as a final twist). The worlds of Split and Unbreakable were always intertwined, according to the director, who reveals in Rotten Tomatoes oral history of the 2016 thriller that the character of Kevin Wendell Crumb (a.k.a. The Horde) was originally supposed to appear in the earlier film. Split was also a game-changer for James McAvoy, who dug into what was arguably his meatiest role in Crumb, who suffers fr世界2风暴帝国The Expanse Cast and Creators on Their Explosive Fifth Season Dominique Tipper, Steven Strait, Wes Chatham, Shohreh Aghdashloo, and more talk about the new season, the significance of The Churn, and whether they'd like an Expanse video game.

Debut writer-director Channing Godfrey Peoples Miss Juneteenth was one of the surprise hits of this year s Sundance Film Festival, where critics singled it out for the charming ways in which Peoples unfurled its touching story. The movie tells the tale of Turquoise Jones (Nicole Behari), a single mom and former beauty queen who s preparing her daughter, Kai (Alexis Chikaeze), for the Miss Juneteenth pageant, which she herself won years ago. Ahead of the movie s release on June 19, Peoples spoke with Rotten Tomatoes about what Juneteenth means to her, the challenges of making her debut feature, and why she felt the need to tell Turquoise and Kai s stories.

Parasite director Bong Joon-ho s path to Oscar glory began at the Cannes Film Festival last year. (Photo by Dominique Charriau/WireImage)At this stage, the Cannes International Film Festival has been postponed, while Venice and Toronto have yet to make any official call.The unpredictability Fear references makes it all the more challenging for freelancers to determine which films to cater their pitches to for the rest of the year.IndieWire’s Kohn echoed those concerns: “The festival usually would create buzz around a film in part because of the live event of a screening, hearing a crowd react to something, and seeing a Q A. And the kind of word-of-mouth in that very specific environment is something you can t replicate online. For certain films, it s just not going to have the same kind of impact.”At the same time, he sees online festivals as an opportunity for critics to jump on coverage for smaller movies that may have otherwise fallen under the radar at a major festival. “If you re a journalist and you re interested in writing about a movie that was supposed to have a premiere, that coverage has so much more currency than it used to,” Kohn says. “It s actually a real opportunity for people who are looking to cover films.”As President of the Chicago Film Critics Association, Tallerico has first-hand experience of making the call to cancel or delay a festival. “I actually produce a film festival in Chicago called the Chicago Critics Film Festival every May, and [this year] we had to pull the plug, of course,” Tallerico says. “Festivals feed the industry, they feed both industries, the film industry and the journalism industry. It definitely hurts that they re gone.”Today s production shutdowns will impact tomorrow s opportunities for critics and writersWhile film releases have been delayed theatrically or pushed to VOD, the television industry continues to churn out content at the moment. Physical production is universally halted, but episodes and/or seasons produced in advance of COVID-19–related shutdowns are rolling out on broadcast and streaming platforms. (Post-production continues remotely in many cases.)Several editors told us that critics well-versed in film coverage should attempt to exercise their TV-reviewing muscles for the time being. But even the TV and streaming content will slow down at some point.In addition to being an editor at RogerEbert.com, Tallerico freelances and is well-versed in television coverage. He predicts that, come summertime, the content drought will be even more deeply felt. “I think places like Netflix and Hulu and all them are going to empty the hopper and then have nothing to put in there because nothing has been produced,” Tallerico says.In short, some critics anticipate dry spells in content, depending upon how long the need for social distancing persists.Production for The CW s Riverdale was shut down in March after a crew member tested positive for the virus. Later that month, several major networks and upcoming blockbusters also halted production. (Photo by Katie Yu/The CW -- © 2020)Jean Bentley is a freelance television reporter for The Hollywood Reporter and InStyle, and former Assistant TV Editor for Rotten Tomatoes. According to Bentley, it’s “business as usual” for television reporters and critics – right now. “I have not really been impacted as much as reporters who cover film because all of those theatrical releases that have been pushed has not happened with TV,” she says.However, she predicts that, when things go back to normal, production scheduling will present major challenges to creatives who may newly be double-booked.“If someone was supposed to be shooting something now and then, say, production resumes in three months – they were already supposed to be doing something else, so now there s a conflict there that they didn t have before,” Bentley says. “I think it s going to result in more [shows] being canceled or just not picked up. Pilot season essentially got canceled and it doesn t seem like a smart proposition to me personally to do it at all, to be quite honest.”Rolling Stone’s Fear foresees similar challenges for film scheduling, as films whose production was shut down will not be finished in time for their original release deadlines. “There are going to be a bunch of holes that are going to be filled, too, because a film that was supposed to be done with its post-production in April, and then be ready for an August or November or a February slot, is not done,” Fear says.The challenge of tone when circumstances keep changingThere are also more nuanced adjustments required during a global pandemic. It’s not only that schedules are in flux and content is unpredictable, both of which impact print publications acutely because of the rigidness of press deadlines. But there’s also an interpersonal and emotional awareness of the ways that people are coping with the new “normal” in the wake of COVID-19, shelter-in-place, and stay-at-home orders.Bilge Ebiri is a movie critic at Vulture. In addition to producing online content, from reviews to feature stories and essays, Ebiri is involved in the print production for New York Magazine, which operates vulture.com. He spoke to the challenges of preparing print content weeks in advance, when global circumstances are changing by the day.“If you re doing it for online, that s one thing, but a lot of what I try to do is work with the print issue,” Ebiri says. “There is this question, when you re in a situation where every day is worse than the previous day: Where are we going to be two weeks from now? Trying to imagine what life is going to be like two weeks from now is already daunting…. If we have some kind of fun, frivolous, inane kind of thing to take people s minds off, in two weeks, this is going to look totally tone deaf.”Inkoo Kang, TV critic at The Hollywood Reporter, described a similar recognition when speaking of an article that she’d pitched before things really took a turn. “There was a review that I was passionate about, but also knew it was sort of this weird, more personal work – a trends piece, essentially, that I think was something that I knew was a little bit more on the frivolous side,” Kang says. “Then suddenly, it seems so incredibly stupid, because it just did not feel like it mattered, compared to everything else that was happening.”She adds: “It was just one of those things where, I don t know, 48 weeks out of the year, this could have been a viable thing to do a commentary piece about. Now people are dying, and the economy is in the toilet. It just did not feel like it mattered on any level.”

t this November, but was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic until next year on April 15, 2022. The movie is less than a year away from release, but it was only this week that we found out the voice cast will include Awkwafina, Anthony Ramos (In the Heights), Sam Rockwell, Zazie Beetz, Marc Maron, Craig Robinson. In related news, Searchlight Pictures announced this week that their previously-untitled murder mystery starring Sam Rockwell and Saoirse Ronan will be called See How They Run, and it will be release sometime in 2022.7. MYSTERIOUS PREDATOR PREQUEL SKULL COMPARED TO SURVIVAL THRILLER THE REVENANT(Photo by Fox/Everett Collection)10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg is currently about 75% finished filming his next project, which was confirmed this week to be titled Skull. What that title doesn t tell you is that the film is actually a prequel to a fan favorite sci-fi action franchise: It will tell the story of the the alien hunters from the Predator series in a survival thriller set some time in the past that s being compared to the The Revenant. The only known Skull cast member right now is Amber Midthunder (Legion, The Ice Road), who was reportedly cast as a Comanche warrior woman who is forced to fight a Predator.8. THE CHI STAR JOINS HOUSE PARTY REMAKE AFTER CAST SHAKEUP (Photo by Showtime)Hollywood s remake fever has nearly run out of ideal properties from the 1980s, so the trend is starting to move more and more towards revisiting the 1990s (and by the end of the 2020s, we ll probably start seeing lots of remakes from the 2000s). After several years of development, New Line Cinema is ready to start filming their remake of the 1990 Kid n Play comedy hit House Party. Tosin Cole (Ryan Sinclair from Doctor Who) and Jorge Lendeborg Jr (Bumblebee) had been cast in April, but Lendeborg reportedly recently dropped out to focus on his mental well-being. His role will instead go to Jacob Latimore of the Showtime series The Chi. The original House Party was an ensemble comedy, so this remake probably will be as well, but none of those roles have been announced yet.9. SCARLETT JOHANSSON SUES DISNEY OVER BLACK WIDOW STREAMING STRATEGY(Photo by Marvel Studios)Walt Disney Pictures received criticism for their decision to stream Black Widow day-and-date with the theatrical release, which has resulted in s its international box office looking like it will to end up about where Scarlett Johansson s Lucy (3 million) did far below most MCU films. Johansson took on the issue directly this week by filing a lawsuit against Disney, accusing the studio over a breach of contract. Key to Johansson s suit is that her contract was based on bonuses from the box office performance of Black Widow, which the lawsuit alleges were significantly reduced because of the decision to stream Black Widow on Disney+. Disney responded by calling the lawsuit sad and distressing in its callous disregard for the horrific and prolonged global effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Johansson s agent replied to that as being a direct attack on her character. More reactions can be read here. What is unclear is how this lawsuit will impact Johansson s future dealings with both Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures, where for example, she had just recently developing a movie project based on the Walt Disney Theme Parks attraction Tower of Terror.On an Apple device?

After one of the greatest television reveals in the history of the small screen, Jimmi Simpson (a.k.a. William or the Young Man in Black from Westworld) didn t waste any time searching for his next project. After a hard-fought audition, the 20-year acting veteran was cast as the lead in the new Epix drama Perpetual Grace, LTD alongside Sir Ben Kingsley.The House of Cards alum quickly plunged himself into the world of grifters and shady characters for this neo-noir thriller, a series with a twisty plot that will make Twin Peaks fans feel right at home. A strangely entertaining tale about robbing a fraud church that would make David Lynch proud, Perpetual Grace, LTD is built for cult-classic appreciation. Only four episodes into this season and we don t know what s in store for James (Simpson) and Pastor Byron Brown (Kingsley), but the first half already has us itching with anticipation.Just hours before he screened the latest episode at the ATX Television Film Festival in early June, Simpson spoke with Rotten Tomatoes about working with Kingsley, what he s streaming, and a graphic television program he finds surprisingly soothing.What’s appointment viewing for you?(Photo by John P. Johnson/HBO)Jimmi Simpson: Do shows even come out every week any more?Jacqueline Coley for Rotten Tomatoes: Well, You were on one last year.[Laughs] No, you re right, if we were not on hiatus, yes I would definitely say Westworld. It s wonderful for that kind of Dickensian quality: here s a little bit and you ll wait, and you ll enjoy waiting.What’s on your streaming queue?PEN15. They re about 5 to 10 years after my time. I was, like, in college when they talking about these things, the preemptive and internet chat stuff, but it s the application of everything that we learned, growing up now as 30-year-olds. They re 30, and having the emotional intelligence and the verbal articulation to share the lessons that we all couldn t process at that time. It just feels like it brings the human growth experience, the adolescence experience, the confusion, into this world where we understand why we do all these things, we understand the trouble we got into, and why we made the bad calls we made, and what actually built who we are as adults. And then it s f ing hilarious. I think it resonates on a sociological level in a way that no comedy show has ever to me. I was raised on Wonder Years, so that s the closest show to this, but that s still an adult tale. It s a middle-aged person describing that experience and we re looking at it from a middle-aged point of view. Whereas, these two women are attacking it from the perspective of a 30-year-old, just with the knowledge and the wisdom of a 13-year-old. I can t believe how good it is. I can t believe how on point both of their performances are. Each time I m just stunned. They bring me to tears about every episode, and then I m laughing my ass off. It s just so good and they call out what needs to be called out, and they let themselves make all those mistakes, so that should win all the awards. I think it should get a Nobel Peace Prize.(Photo by Liam Daniel/HBO)Anything else?Absolutely: Chernobyl.Great show, but kinda depressing. Well, it s only depressing if we let it keep happening. I presume that filmmaker knew what he was doing when he was saying, Look at the mistakes they made, and let s try to avoid that, the misinformation. If you look at the United States of America right now and the daily misinformation from our commander-in-chief, he says it to protect his little ego, and he does it at the expense of human lives. In Chernobyl all they re doing is protecting their ego, the ego of the state, the collective ego. But isn t a person s ego even more nefarious, even more worthless to go into such terrible pitches of ill truth? It s stunning to me. We all want to learn lessons, we all want to be better, but it s also a world where everyone wants to watch shows and be really entertained. So how do you achieve both? How do you get your message across, and make one of the most clearly articulate and beautiful, visual stories on TV right now? Every time he sets the camera or doesn t set the camera, every push in, every performance is captivating. It s film at its best, I think, because I just love biography, so to give audiences all of this pertinent information and all these warning signs under the guise of “Holy f this is so entertaining!” That s hard to do man. And so I just clap my ass off for that show.What’s on your DVR?Believe it or not, I unwind to the Forensic Files. I discovered because my wife found it. She s from the U.K., so she s always looking for the next true crime thing that America has. And she found these half-hour investigations into awful crimes, and how forensics got to the bottom of it. At first I was like, oh my God! But with the climate of the world, with so much sadness and so much devastation and no checks and balances, we don t have justice. We have racism at its highest since the civil rights movement. So these little half-hour episodes, they re horrific crimes, but each one is foiled. Each time the bad guy s gotten, and you know at the end of it you re going to see the bad guy thrown in jail. So despite how awful it is you can say, Thank God, evil monsters do go to jail in the end.” They ll get them every time! That feeling is calming to me. I m less of the superheroes guy. That flight of fancy doesn t quite suit me. I m like, that s not happening! That s not real. But when we go over to Forensic Files, justice pans out. Without a cape.What’s coming soon that you can’t wait for?I don t know if it s soon, but Pen15 season 2.
This Week s Ketchup brings you seven headlines from the world of film development news, covering a couple of major announcements and new roles for Viggo Mortensen, Elisabeth Moss, Kaitlyn Dever, Thomasin McKenzie, and Olivia Munn.This WEEK S TOP STORYTENET, WONDER WOMAN 1984, GODZILLA VS. KONG AMONG NEW MOVIES DELAYED(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)Recently, when Warner Bros. released the latest trailer for Christopher Nolan s new action thriller Tenet, many people noticed that it ended with Coming to Theaters, neglecting to specify exactly when that might be. Tenet has been announced for release on July 17, 2020 since last summer, but with most movie theaters currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been increasing questions about whether it would shift its release or not. In breaking news late on Friday afternoon, Warner Bros. confirmed that Tenet will indeed be pushed back two weeks to July 31, 2020. On the July 17, 2020 date when Tenet was supposed to have been released, WB will instead re-release Christopher Nolan s Inception (Certified Fresh at 87%), another trippy action movie with mind-bending visuals. In addition to Tenet, which many in the industry were looking to as the barometer for theatrical reopenings across the country, Warner Bros. also announced that Wonder Woman 1984 is getting pushed to October 2; Robert Zemeckis s remake of The Witches is being pulled from its October 9 release to an unknown date; the animated-live action hybrid Tom Jerry is getting pushed from December 23 to March of next year; and the giant monster face-off Godzilla vs. Kong is moving from its November 20 date to May 21, 2020, which in turn pushes back the fourth Matrix film all the way to April 1, 2022. As of right now, Disney s Mulan is still scheduled to open on July 24, making it the first big movie to be released in the post-coronavirus environment, but it would not be surprising if that changed as well.Other Top Headlines1. THE ACADEMY S NEW INCLUSIVITY RULES MANDATE 10 BEST PICTURE NOMINEES EVERY YEAR (Photo by Getty Images)The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has been revising the rules and categories for the Academy Awards almost since the awards started in the late 1920s (they used to award Oscars for Best Dance Direction, for example). Although the rules of the Oscars seemed relatively stable for decades, they ve made several changes in the last decade, starting with the decision in 2009 to expand the number of Best Picture nominees from five to a maximum of 10. Responding to calls for more inclusion in their standards, AMPAS again changed some of its rules, one of which was to return the number of Best Picture nominees to a consistent ten every year. Although the Academy keeps many secrets about how close films get to being nominated, there has been speculation that some of the snubbed movies in recent years (like say, last year s The Farewell and If Beale Street Could Talk) could have been Best Picture nominees. These changes will take effect starting with the films of 2021 and will include other guidelines put in place by a new task force of industry leaders to develop and implement a new representation and inclusion standards for Oscars eligibility. 2. VIGGO MORTENSEN S GREEN BOOK REUNION WILL DEPICT THE GREATEST BEER RUN EVER (Photo by ©Universal Pictures)Director Peter Farrelly s controversial 2018 film about race relations in the 1960s, Green Book, went on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture last year, which led to reactions like this. For his next film, Farrelly will be reuniting with one of the stars of that film, namely Viggo Mortensen, for another true story set in the 1960s. The film will be an adaptation of the non-fiction book, The Greatest Beer Run Ever: A True Story of Friendship Stronger than War, which told the story of a young man (nicknamed Chickie ) who traveled in 1967 from New York to Vietnam to share a few beers with his childhood friends serving in the Army in the Vietnam War. Brian Currie, who also co-wrote Green Book, will be one of the screenwriters on The Greatest Beer Run Ever as well, along with Pete Jones (Hall Pass). In addition to its various awards, Green Book also earned over 0 million worldwide, so the bar is set pretty high for The Greatest Beer Run Ever.3. BOOKSMART STAR KAITLYN DEVER LANDS FEMALE LEAD IN DEAR EVAN HANSEN (Photo by Francois Duhamel/©Annapurna Pictures)Since her co-star Beanie Feldstein was also in Lady Bird (Certified Fresh at 99%), the breakout star of last year s Booksmart (Certified Fresh at 97%) was arguably Kaitlyn Dever (although she had previously been a cast member on TV of both Justified and Last Man Standing). For her next role, Kaitlyn Dever has landed the female lead in the film adaptation of the Tony-winning Broadway play Dear Evan Hansen. Although at 26, he is much older than the high school student he portrayed, Ben Platt is expected to reprise his role from the Broadway production in the new film. Dear Evan Hansen is the story of a socially awkward high school student who gets caught up in a web of deception after one of his letters to a classmate who committed suicide is confused with being the suicide note itself. Dever will play the dead student s sister who begins dating Evan Hansen. Dear Evan Hansen will be directed for Universal Pictures by Stephen Chbosky, whose previous films include Wonder (Certified Fresh at 85%) and The Perks of Being a Wallflower (Certified Fresh at 86%). Dear Evan Hansen does not yet have a release date (many movies don t right now), but it seems likely to be one of Universal s late 2021 awards contenders.4. DISNEY GIVING LIONEL RICHIE HIS OWN MOVIE MUSICAL ALL NIGHT LONG (Photo by RCF/Everett Collection)Some of the most popular movie musicals of the last several years have included both traditional biopics like Rocketman and Bohemian Rhapsody, but also jukebox musicals like Mamma Mia! and, arguably, Yesterday. Walt Disney Pictures is now developing a new musical inspired by and including the numerous pop songs of Lionel Richie to be titled All Night Long, named after his 1983 hit song. The film, which is intended to be a theatrical release, will not be a biopic but more like Mamma Mia!, and the screenwriter will be Pete Chiarelli (Crazy Rich Asians, Now You See Me 2). Something that remains unclear is whether the songs will be only from Lionel Richie s solo career, or if it will also include songs from his career with the Commodores (such as Brick House, Nightshift, Three Times a Lady, Easy ).5. BRUCE CAMPBELL CONFIRMS THE EXISTENCE OF EVIL DEAD NOW (Photo by Matt Klitscher/©Starz!)Long before he ever directed a Spider-Man movie, Sam Raimi first became famous with his Evil Dead horror comedy franchise starring Bruce Campbell as the chainsaw-wielding anti-hero Ash. The franchise was rebooted in 2013 with Evil Dead (Fresh at 62%), which failed to generate enough attention for its own sequel. Instead, Campbell revealed this week that a new fifth Evil Dead movie to be titled Evil Dead Now is currently being developed by writer/director Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground). Evil Dead Now is expected to be a new story not directly connected to either the characters of the 2013 remake or Sam Raimi s original trilogy.6. JAKE GYLLENHAAL TO STAR IN GRAPHIC NOVEL ADAPTATION SNOW BLIND (Photo by Anne Marie Fox/TM & ©Copyright Fox Searchlight)Following his Marvel Comics Universe debut last year as the villain Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far from Home (Certified Fresh at 90%), Jake Gyllenhaal is now attached to star in another movie based on a graphic novel. That project, called Snow Blind, is an action-adventure about a young boy who discovers that the reason that his family lives in Alaska is that they are in the Witness Protection Program. Snow Blind is being compared to a cross between Gyllenhaal s Prisoners (Certified Fresh at 80%) and the River Phoenix film Running on Empty (Fresh at 85%) (although that family of domestic terrorists on the run was sort of the the exact opposite of the Witness Protection Program). Snow Blind will be written by Patrick Ness, the author of A Monster Calls (Certified Fresh at 86%) whose Chaos Walking (starring Tom Holland) is currently awaiting release.7. KEKE PALMER TO STAR IN ABDUCTION THRILLER ALICE (Photo by Jason Smith/Everett Collection)One of the horror films still awaiting release due to COVID-19 delays is Antebellum, which appears to be about a modern African-American woman (Janelle Monae) who discovers she has somehow time-traveled back to the slavery era in the American South. While we wait for that film to get an official release date, singer and actress Keke Palmer (Hustlers) is now attached to executive produce and star in a film called Alice that seems like a cross between Antebellum, Brie Larson s abduction drama Room (Certified Fresh at 93%), and M. Night Shyamalan s The Village (Rotten at 43%). We re making those comparisons because of its premise, reportedly based on a true story, which is about a woman who escapes from a life of servitude in 1800s Georgia only to discover that the year is actually 1973.8. ELISABETH MOSS REUNITES WITH HANDMAID S TALE DIRECTOR FOR NEW HORROR FILM(Photo by Ely Dassas/©Hulu)Although she first became famous as the First Daughter on TV s The West Wing and in AMC s Mad Men, not to mention her box office hit this year with the remake of The Invisible Man, Elisabeth Moss is arguably still most famous in 2020 for her starring role in the acclaimed series The Handmaid s Tale. For her next film, Moss will be reuniting with one of her Handmaid s Tale directors, Daina Reid, for a supernatural horror film called Run Rabbit Run. In the film, Moss will play a a fertility doctor who believes firmly in life and death, but after noticing the strange behavior of her young daughter, must challenge her own values and confront a ghost from her past. 9. JOJO RABBIT S THOMASIN MCKENZIE TO STAR IN BALLET MOVIE JOIKA (Photo by Scott Green/©Bleecker Street Media)For his World War II satire Jojo Rabbit, director Taika Waititi cast established stars (Scarlett Johansson, Rebel Wilson, Sam Rockwell) for supporting roles, but went with three relative newcomers for the film s young leads. In addition to the two boys (Roman Griffin Davis as Jojo, and Archie Yates as Yorki), the female lead in Jojo Rabbit was Thomasin McKenzie, who actually did have her first breakout role in 2018 in the indie film Leave No Trace (Certified Fresh at 100%). For her next role, McKenzie will star in Joika, based on the true story of an American ballet dancer named Joy Womack who was a member of the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow. The young actress is reportedly already training for her role as a ballet dancer in the production, which will reportedly use new technology to allow the team to work together in the post-COVID-19 pandemic environment.10. OLIVIA MUNN TO STAR IN HER OWN SCI-FI ACTION MOVIE CALLED REPLAY (Photo by Dan McFadden/©Millennium Entertainment courtesy Everett Collection)Olivia Munn may have at one point expected to have a potential superhero franchise when she co-starred as Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse (Rotten at 47%), except that the X-Men franchise as we previously knew it is pretty much dead now following Disney s acquisition of Fox, and Psylocke didn t return in the next movie, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, anyway. Instead, Munn appears to have a chance at another new role with a concept that seems franchise-friendly, as she will produce and star in a science fiction action movie called Replay about a woman armed with illegal, bleeding-edge technology who attempts to change the past in order to save the life of her murdered husband. Replay is being produced by Dark Castle Entertainment, the production company behind such recent films as Ghost Ship, Orphan, Suburbicon, and House of Wax.

世界2风暴帝国 (Photo by ©Warner Bros/Everett Collection)Instead of a drumroll, you’ll want to cue a very 90s bassline for the reveal of Rotten Tomatoes readers’ favorite TV comedy of all time: Seinfeld.Jerry, Elaine, George, and Kramer reigned supreme in the comedy section of RT’s annual fall TV survey of their TV viewing habits, with 9.01% of users saying that they prefer Seinfeld above all else. Close behind were Friends (cue the strategically timed handclaps), with 7.76% of the RT user vote, and The Office (cue the piano) with 7.22%.Other shows that got between 4% and 7% of the RT user vote included The Big Bang Theory (6.16%), Parks and Recreation (5.28%), M*A*S*H (5.03%), and The Simpsons (4.40%). Among all total respondents (not just RT users), the Central Perk gang reigned supreme with 8.35%), followed by Seinfeld (7.87%), Big Bang (7.34%), The Office (6.61%), M*A*S*H (6.35%), I Love Lucy (4.59%), and Parks and Rec (4.35%).(Photo by NBC)Both gender and age had major impact on what comedies respondents loved. Significantly more women preferred Friends (11.33% of women vs. 5.22% of men), while men preferred Seinfeld (10.50% of men vs. 5.37% of women). Other gender splits of more than 1% included The Big Bang Theory (7.99% of women chose it vs. 6.66% of men), I Love Lucy (6.62% of women vs. 2.45% of men), The Simpsons (5.91% of men vs. 1.93% of women), The Golden Girls (4.45% of women vs. 1.57% of men), The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (3.52% of women vs. 1.78% of men), Cheers (3.55% of men vs. 1.83% of women), and Married…with Children (3.30% of men vs 1.67% of women).As far as age goes, 12.37% of 18- to 34-year-old respondents preferred The Office, then Friends (10.87%), then Parks and Rec (8.89%). The 35- to 54-year-old respondents preferred Friends (9.98%), Seinfeld (9.61%), and The Big Bang Theory (8.97%). Among respondents 55 and older, M*A*S*H was far and away the favorite (12.91%), followed by The Big Bang Theory (9.87%), Seinfeld (9.00%), and I Love Lucy (8.50%).More comedy coverage:200 Best Comedy Shows of All Time40 Best Sketch Comedy Shows of All TimeComedians Pick Their Favorite Comedies
