Olympics TV Ratings Haven’t Fallen More Than Broadcast TV as a Whole

NBCUniversal has suffered steep losses from the 2016 summer games, but they're very much in line with the contraction that has afflicted all of linear TV. Through the first week of the Summer Olympics, NBCUniversal’s primetime audience has fallen precipitously — by almost 42 percent — compared to the last summer games in 2016. Given the way viewership linear TV has cratered in the past five years, however, that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.

‘The Green Knight’ Filmmaker David Lowery on the “Nightmare” Shoot and ‘Peter Pan & Wendy’

The director reflects on an improbable career straddling A24 and Disney and talks the virtues of 'Hook.'. 2020 had very few silver linings, but for The Green Knight filmmaker David Lowery, the coronavirus pandemic-related delay allowed him to reshape his Arthurian epic with newfound perspective after a rather grueling shoot. Based on the 14th-century Arthurian poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Lowery’s second A24 film chronicles King Arthur’s impulsive nephew, Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), and his quest to confront the Green Knight (Ralph Ineson) after agreeing to the giant treelike creature’s challenge. Shot in the spring of 2019, Lowery’s cast and crew battled the elements of Ireland’s breathtaking countryside, all while the director endured his own personal ailments. And since the film was originally slated to premiere at 2020’s South by Southwest, Lowery appreciated the opportunity to recover from the shoot and rework his cut with fresh eyes throughout the first six months of the pandemic.
