Hawaii Five-0 continues upward climb

December 23rd, 2013 by

A holiday present for the cast and crew of Hawaii Five-0 came in the form of improved numbers for “Pukana,” which aired on December 20th.   Many of us were a bit disappointed that the ratings for the previous week’s Pearl Harbor-themed episode, “Ho’ onani Makuakane” dipped, when it was one of the best the show has produced in the four seasons it’s been on the air.

Although the reason for the dip in numbers may be a mystery, the ratings are heading back upwards, and that’s particularly rewarding on a Friday night during the holiday party and shopping season.  And even more significantly, the show matched it’s primary competitor in the 18-49 demographic, while trouncing it in total views, bestowing a nice gift upon those involved with the show, and for the fans as well.  What do you say we ask Santa for a fifth season?

 

What’s in the box?

Friday Final Ratings for Hawaii Five-0′s “Ho’onani Makuakane”

December 22nd, 2013 by

Hawaii Five-0′s December 13th installment, titled “Ho’onani Makuakane (Honor Thy Father),” commemorated Pearl Harbor Day with a story blending present-day events and the aftermath of the December 7th, 1941 attacks. The story was as emotionally moving as it was informative, focusing on a shameful chapter of Hawaii’s WWII history — the internment of islanders of Japanese descent in places like the Honouliuli internment camp.

With the holiday season upon us, it seems many folks were apparently busy elsewhere, so this extraordinary episode did not score as well in the overnight ratings as it most likely would have at a less frantic time of year.  Nonetheless, it handily won the time-slot in with viewers overall, but not with the youth demographic.

Five-0 scored a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demo with 9.13 million viewers, down by three tenths of a ratings point and 1 share point compared to November 22nd’s 1.5 and 9.92 million viewers. Given the time of year, perhaps we can expect to see a considerable jump in all three ratings areas once the seven-day DVR viewership figures are factored in.

Based on the results of Entertainment Weekly’s recent survey of the 100 most watched shows of the Fall season, it looks like the Friday-fearing hand-wringers and nay-sayers were just a tad premature with their funeral arrangements for Hawaii Five-0. The show made the Top 20, coming in at number 18.

Of the Top 20 most-watched shows, 11 of them air on CBS, with 3 of the Top 5 being CBS shows. EW’s survey of Prime-time network TV, which is excerpted below, covers the period from September 23rd to December 15th.  The complete list and article by  Lynette Rice can be read at EW.com.

“Here are the [Top 20] most-watched shows of the fall. (Survey dates are from Sept. 23 to Dec. 15). Remember, Persons 2+ isn’t the coveted advertiser demo, but it sure doesn’t hurt to have a show that millions upon millions like to watch.”

Up Next on Hawaii Five-0 “Pukana” with preview clip!

December 19th, 2013 by

After last week’s solemn Pearl Harbor episode, I am hoping for some levity in the midst of murder and mayhem on Hawaii Five-0 this week. Of course, Max and Kamekona will bring the chuckles.

 

Two over sized elves on the shelf will bring the comic relief

 

The gang is all together for this Christmas episode but you can bet that not all is well for the Five-0 team. Chin finds himself in peril once again just as his romance with with Leilani starts to heat up. That guy just doesn’t have any luck.

 

Looks like trouble for Chin

 

The Hawaii Five-0 writers once again tease about the contents of a mysterious box, in this case, a safe. Other boxes of note – the CHAMP box (contents included clues to Doris McGarrett’s non-murder) and the box with a HEAD!

Which leaves the question….

WHAT’S IN THE BOX THIS TIME?

TV Fanatic gets scoop on Pearl Harbor episode and Grace Park’s return

December 13th, 2013 by

Executive producer Peter Lenkov and Co-Executive producer, Ken Solarz tell TV Fanatic how it was to craft tonight’s Pearl Harbor episode. Not only was the attack on Pearl Harbor re-created for the small screen but also the controversial use of internment camps for the Japanese that lived in Hawaii during that time.

Lenkov also teased about what to expect in the New Year: Grace Park’s return to set, Catherine’s backstory, the three episode arc with Danno’s parents (played by Melanie Griffith and Tom Berenger) and more bromance from McGarrett and Danno!


Excerpts from: Hawaii Five-0 Scoop: Pearl Harbor, Grace Park’s Return & More!
by Jim Halterman

 Executive Peter Lenkov and Co-Executive Producer Ken Solarz wrote the episode and talked to me about it earlier this week.

Remembering Pearl Harbor

TV Fanatic: For being such a hardcore cop show in some ways, then I watch an episode like this and see that you guys are so sentimental over there.

Peter Lenkov: [laughs] Well, you know, we wear our hearts on our sleeves. It comes with age.

TVF: Tell me about the opening of the episode because it was quite epic. I felt like I was watching a movie!

PL: I think, like you said, for a high-octane show we’re very sentimental. I think what we wanted to do was really come out of the gate with a bang. We wanted to tell the story. We thought if we could recreate the moment of the attack of Pearl Harbor that would probably be our biggest stunt or action sequence to date.

Part of that was us being selfish as writers wanting to write something big, wanting to recreate Pearl Harbor for the small screen, and challenging our cast and our crew doing something we’ve never done before. Also, it’s in context with the story telling because it was a great way to get into the story and sort of ease the audience into the device of the story, which was going to be flashbacks.

TVF: Since you’ve been doing this show for several years now, have you found that Pearl harbor is still very present with many people that live there in Hawaii?

Ken Solarz: Absolutely. Case in point, when we were shooting there – we have a wonderful crew down there, everybody from actors to crew people – there was this reverential silence because we were actually on the spot where the attack took place. We were recreating that. When you go there,you feel the pull of history. You feel the weight of what happened there. I think that everyone in Hawaii does to some extent, especially if you’re there and you’re on hallowed ground recreating this attack. It’s really quite memorable.

PL: Just to go back, after four years of doing this show I’m always getting calls from people asking me where to stay, where to eat, and they always bring up when they’re going to Oahu making a trip to, making a pilgrimage to Pearl Harbor. I think it is still relevant. I think we’re real history buffs here, but I think everybody knows the importance of that place and we’re hoping they also learn something in our episode that you’re not going to learn when you go to Pearl Harbor.

TVF: Tell me about the research you guys did, because there were things I learned that I didn’t know.

KS: We did quite extensive research. Peter had this thought when he created the show, when he was immersing himself in all things Hawaii. Peter brought up the fact that there were internment camps there…that’s pretty fertile ground for us so we just started digging into it and there are a lot of survivors of those camps still around. You can find oral history, you can find documentation, there’s lots to read on it, but we thought that it would fit into our show because of what Hawaii’s been through specific to Hawaii. That’s what made it attractive to us.

TVF: Did you guys actually get some of the actual veterans there for that scene at Pearl Harbor? I kept thinking that a lot of the older faces we saw were probably real veterans.

PL: Yes. In fact, one of them is the father of one of our CBS executives. We put him in just really to honor these guys. That’s really what it is, I mean, we have a very close relationship with the military and every now and then when we see them we do one or two episodes that are really a valentine to the military and pay tribute to the military. This is just one of those episodes.

TVF: What’s coming in the New Year on the show?

PL: Well, we’re just starting to shoot a three-episode part for Melanie Griffith who plays Danny’s mother. Tom Berenger is going to play his father in the last episode, so we’re excited about that. Three really fun episodes for Scott and his mom to play around.

We have a great episode every year where really we cement the blood brother aspect or the bromance between McGarrett and Danny. Last year was them stuck on a raft and the year before was the bomb. We always do one of these episodes, we just do one of these episodes that put Danny and McGarrett together for most of the episode and put them in some kind of jeopardy to show that they are true blood brothers.

We’re getting to find out a little bit of Catherine’s back story, Grace is back in the picture full time starting in the New Year, Kono is back full-time. She’s back from searching for Adam. So it’s the family back together. Grover is going to be a bigger part of our family [Chi McBride was recently made a series regular], there’s still going to be that animosity, but they’re going to learn to love each other, these two guys. They both have a very similar experience and they’re going to bond over that. Then we’re going to get this big revelation from McGarrett. There’s going to be a lot of great character stuff and I actually think some of our better stories are coming up.

 

Danno’s dad is finally cast

December 11th, 2013 by

For four seasons now, Hawaii Five-0 viewers have speculated as to who should portray the father of Danny Williams’ (Scott Caan) on the series. The hopes of many fans were dashed when  Scott’s real-life dad, James Caan. was cast in a different role on the show.

Word is finally out today, so tell us what you think about this choice.

From Entertainment Weekly

 

tom-berenger.jpgVeteran actor, Tom Berenger

 We already knew that Danno’s mom was going to make a trip to the island but get ready for a full family reunion on Hawaii Five-0!

He will appear alongside Melanie Griffith, who, as previously announced, will play Danny’s mom in three episodes airing in 2014. Berenger is set to appear alongside Griffith in the last of those three.

“[Danny's mom] ends up rocking his world because she comes with this big piece of news, and it forces them to look at their relationship,” teases executive producer Peter Lenkov. “It’s a very nice ride. She’s going to have some really great scenes with McGarrett and in one episode she’s on a ride along with Chi McBride, which I think we’re looking forward to. It’s a sweet little arc.”

The best part, says Lenkov, is that Danny’s mom is “the anti-McGarrett mom,” giving them a fresh mother-son dynamic to play with. “She’s a real stay-at-home mom; she’s not a spy. She’s just a good woman looking to be a good mom to her kids,” he says. “One of them is across the world in Hawaii, another is on the run, and [she has] a couple of daughters, and I think she’s just looking to be a mom. She’s just looking for somebody to want her.”

Hawaii Five-0 blends past and present in WWII-themed episode (SPOILERS)

This week’s episode of Hawaii Five-0, “Ho’onani Makuakane (Honor Thy Father),” gives us a present-day attempted murder case with roots in the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack and its profound effects on the people of Hawaii. Making an event as pivotal as the December 7th, 1941 attacks on Hawaii  a part of a modern-day TV show can be a tricky proposition, but no show is in a better position to make such a story work than O’ahu-based Hawaii Five-0. From the looks of the following promo video, Five-0 is going to give us a moving and thought-provoking experience.

Hawaii Five-0 has much to be thankful for

November 28th, 2013 by

Although many viewers were sounding the death knell for Hawaii Five-0 after the CBS show was moved to Friday nights, it seems that move is paying off.  The Eye network has argued for a while now that it’s not only viewers in the 18-49 age group that should determine the success or failure of a show.  Putting their money where their mouth is, they’ve kept alive such series as  ”Blue Bloods,” and “The Good Wife,” which don’t score so high in the youth demo, but which have loyal viewerships.

After two seasons of declining ratings, and with two of the stars taking personal time off this season, Hawaii Five-0 fans have been understandably concerned about the relocation to Friday, since that night has the reputation for being the “death slot.”   Many believed the show starring Alex O’Loughlin, Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park, and Scott Caan, was being written off and that this would be the final season.  Personally, I thought the new time-slot might be a good strategy, since Five-0 would be paired with “Blue Bloods,” which is a numbers hit, but which scores lower in the industry-desired demographic. Although it’s too early to make a prediction for a fifth season, the show’s new berth combined with improved writing, and memorable guest stars is bringing in viewers.  And most importantly, CBS seems quite pleased with the continued climb in ratings.

Hawaii Five-0′s Thanksgiving-themed “Hau’oli La Ho’omaika’i” saw the show pull its highest Season 4 viewership figures to date — 9.92 million, up from the previous week’s 9.90 million. Only CBS stablemate Blue Bloods pulled higher total viewer figures — 11.90 million, which was also a season high for that show. Five-0′s demo rating and share, at 1.5/5, was only 1/10th of a point off the show’s season high of 1.6/5.

CBS was pleased enough with the viewership figures for Five-0 and Blue Bloods to issue a press release, which said:

“At 9:00 PM, HAWAII FIVE-0 delivered a season best 9.92 million viewers. Among adults 18-49, it averaged a 1.5/05, just -0.1 behind its season-best adults 18-49 performance.”

Beloved television legend Carol Burnett brought her A game to the episode, making Aunt Deb McGarrett a truly memorable addition to the Five-0 Ohana. Did her presence help bring new eyes to Five-0, or bring old eyes back? Tell us what you think!

Up Next on Hawaii Five-0 “Ha’uoli Lā Ho’omaika’i” with sneak peak clip!

November 21st, 2013 by

Hawaii Five-0 is pulling out the stops with guest stars this week in what is sure to be a ratings coup! The Grand Dame of television comedy, Carol Burnett, appears this week as McGarrett’s Aunt Deb.  The lovely Aunt Deb raised Mary on the mainland at John’s request, after the murder-but-not-a-murder of Doris McGarrett.

If you have never experienced the side splitting comedy of The Carol Burnett Show, I highly recommend checking out clips on YouTube.

Below is an interview that Burnett did on the CBS daytime show, The Talk about her Hawaii Five-0 experience.

Watch carefully during Aunt Deb’s singing performance for Burnett’s signature ear tug.  She’s said that it’s her way of sending a little hello to her now deceased grandmother and daughter.

Based on the short preview clip released by CBS, I already know that this is a character I want to see again and again.
