FX’s new comedy series “Dave,” starring rapper-comedian Dave Burd (aka. Lil Dicky), has been a smash – averaging 4.8 million viewers per episode for its five episodes to date across linear, video-on-demand and streaming viewing.
That’s the second-largest average audience of any season of an FX Networks comedy, behind only the first season of “Atlanta” (5.2 million). Combined with the average audience per episode increasing by 1.2 million viewers in the past two weeks, it will likely surpass that soon. [Source: Deadline]
David F. Sandberg has offered a brief update on the status of the “Shazam” sequel, saying he is currently working on the script and confirms the original plan was to shoot this year: “Well, we’ll see how long this goes, because I mean, we were going to start shooting this year. But, I mean, who knows how long this will go on? I mean, it feels like every movie gets delayed now, so we’ll see what happens with Shazam!. But so far, I’ve been working on the script. We can still do that, so that’s being done and then, yeah, we’ll just see in a couple of months how it looks.” [Source: ComicBook.com]
