Time for a Saturday round-up of all that’s post-worthy from the Fringeverse.
Below the jump we find out the Nielsen ratings for the latest Fringe episode, see what Blair Brown has to say about Nina’s chest and find out Joshua Jackson’s take on Peter.
The ratings for Fringe 2.02 Night of Desirable Objects was down on last week, but FOX should be quite happy as their overall Thursday numbers are up:
Week two of FRINGE posted a 2.3/6 among Adults 18-49. So far this season FRINGE shows substantial gains compared to FOX’s regular programming in the time period last Fall, increasing +37% among Adults 18-49 and +58% in Total Viewers.
FRINGE ranked No. 4 in the 9p hour among Adults 18-49 and Adults 18-34.
BuddyTV get face to face with Blair Brown who reveals that she is a fan of serial over procedural (hint, hint, Bad Robot) and more:
Here is the second part of Joshua Jackson‘s interview with Starlog:
So far, Fringe team members Peter and Olivia are only friends, but fans spent the show’s hiatus debating if the pair’s relationship would develop romantically during Season Two, and whether that would be a good idea. “I feel like this is more of a family dynamic than a romantic dynamic,” Jackson replies. “What’s unique and great about our show is that, as opposed to just having a leading man and a leading lady, you have this crazy father at the center of it. That would be a very, very awkward love triangle, so I don’t believe they’re going to go in that direction. I see Peter and Olivia as more brother and sister rather than lovers. Where they’re going to take it, I have no idea, but for right now I’m running under the assumption that this is a father, son and daughter rather than a boy friend, girl friend and a Dad.”
In DAWSON’S CREEK, Jackson cracked quips and displayed his gift for sarcasm during its six-season run. Peter is, if anything, even more sardonically funny than that character. “I’ll give the writers credit,” Jackson gracefully replies. “I’d say most of those lines are written, though there is [ad-lib], particularly in the scenes with John. John and I have a strong working rapport, and he’s a playful actor. He likes to keep things live, and so you keep on testing and trying. Just to toot my own horn, I feel like I’m a bit that way myself. So much of the humor in those moments comes out of the two of us playing around until we figure out something that pops out of it, though the scenarios are definitely written. Peter’s a much more cynical man than me; his sarcasm has a tendency to be much darker than my sense of humor.”
