'Criminal Minds' Takes on 'Seven' Inspired Case on Wednesday Night's Episode – PopCulture.com

Criminal Minds will be dealing with some bad pieces of mail in their latest episode.

In a sneak peek from “Rule 34,” the Behavioral Analysis Unit is briefed on a case involving people getting body parts of a murder victim in the mail.

“This morning D.C. metro police reported that body parts were sent to six separate locations within the Washington metropolitan area,” Prentiss (Paget Brewster) briefed the team. “Each appendage was wrapped and sealed inside its own box. In all there were two arms with no hands, two legs with no feet, one torso cut in half but without the head.”

“So, although this unsure felt the sadistic urge of shock and awe the victims that received the boxes, he was still organized enough to withhold the parts that would’ve helped better identify the victim,” Dr. Tara Lewis (Aisha Tyler) said.

“Oh, but wait there’s more,” Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) adds. “Each box. Underneath the victim pieces was an index card, and on each one, a piece of a handwritten note.

The note reads: “All the Kings horses and all the King’s Benz Couldn’t put this Bitch Back Together Again. Forever Yours. Gone Postal.”

Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) hilariously reads out the letter and hesitates before he says the word “bitch” in the clip.

The official synopsis for the episode, released by CBS reads: “When packages with gruesome contents are delivered to six people in the Washington, D.C. area, the BAU must first figure out what connects the recipients before they can identify the UnSub.”

“Also, Simmons (Daniel Henry) and Kristy (Kelly Frye) struggle to connect with their son, David, who is suspended from school for aggressive behavior.”

The grim case of the week comes after a compelling episode featuring the team investigating an UnSub murdering victims and mummifying their bodies for preservation.

The episode also featured the return of Krystall (Gail O’Grady), with Rossi (Joe Mantegna) struggling to tell the team about getting back together with his ex-wife.

The box seems to be a tribute to the iconic David Fincher 1995 film Seven, which involved a murder mystery surrounding the seven deadly sins. The film’s most climactic scene involved the main character being tormented by the assumption that his wife had been murdered and her head had been removed from her body and placed in the box, though the contents of the box is not actually shown.

Will the macabre crimes of this episode deal with similar dark themes? Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.

Scoop: Coming Up on a New Episode of CRIMINAL MINDS on CBS - Wednesday, October 31, 2018

“The Tall Man” – The BAU investigates a spooky local ghost story of the “Tall Man” and the clues it provides when two people go missing in the woods of East Allegheny’s Dead Man’s Conservatory, and a third mysteriously surfaces the following day with limited details as to what happened to her friends. To assist with the case, JJ reluctantly returns to her hometown, triggering emotional flashbacks to age 11 and her older sister’s tragic death, on CRIMINAL MINDS, Wednesday, Oct. 31 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Series star Matthew Gray Gubler directed the episode.

CRIMINAL MINDS revolves around an elite team of FBI profilers who analyze the country’s most twisted criminal minds, anticipating their next moves before they strike again. The Behavioral Analysis Unit’s most experienced agent is David Rossi, founding member of the BAU, who is essential in helping the team solve new cases. Other members include Special Agent Emily Prentiss, the daughter of high-powered diplomats who returns to the team after being the head profiler at Interpol; Special Agent Dr. Spencer Reid, a classically misunderstood genius whose social IQ is as low as his intellectual IQ is high; Jennifer “J.J.” Jareau, the team’s former unit liaison turned profiler, who juggles motherhood and marriage with the same skill as she solves cases; Penelope Garcia, the team’s indispensable computer wizard who helps research the cases with her unique charm; Dr. Tara Lewis, a forensic psychologist whose expertise is studying and interviewing serial killers after they’ve been captured to determine if they are able to stand trial; Luke Alvez, a former Army ranger and excellent tracker recruited to the BAU from the FBI’s Fugitive Task Force; and Special Agent Simmons who joins his colleagues in the BAU after consulting them when he was a member of the International Response Team. Simmons is an ex-Delta soldier with deft profiling skills and military special-ops expertise. As the team evolves together, the BAU continues its dedication to using their expertise to pinpoint predators’ motivations and identify their emotional triggers in the attempt to stop them.

'All American' Off To Soft Start; Entire CBS & Fox Lineups + 'Fire' Log Rating Upticks – Deadline

All American

Snapshot updated with finals: New series premiere: the CW’s All American (0.2 Live+Same Day rating in 18-49, 685,000 viewers)

UPDATED 4 PM: Oh, boy. The CW debuted its highest-profile new fall series last night, All American, and it didn’t go so well. The series, about a talented teen football player from Crenshaw recruited by a Beverly Hills high school, opened to 685,000 total viewers and a 0.2 rating in adults 18-49 (Live+Same Day). It held onto less than half of its lead-in Riverdale (0.5, 1.5 million).

While supported by an extensive marketing campaign and carrying the Berlanti Prods. pedigree, All American, a cross between The O.C. and Friday Night Lights, is softer and more grounded than other over-the-top, noisy and twisty CW high school dramas like Gossip Girl, 90210 or Riverdale. That may have factored into the soft premiere numbers, which I think are the lowest for a fall new CW series debut.

All American -- "Pilot"-- Image Number: ALA101c_1441rd.jpg -- Pictured (L-R): Taye Diggs as Billy Baker and Daniel Ezra as Spencer James -- Photo: Ray Mickshaw/The CW -- © 2018 The CW Network, LLC. All Rights Reserved

All American’s opener was on par with the March premiere in the time slot (with a comparable Riverdale lead-in) of Life Sentence, which didn’t last beyond a short midseason run. Delayed/multi-platform viewing would be crucial for All American as the CW brass are known for supporting series based on their confidence in the creative, so they would likely try to stick with the drama if it shows signs of life on digital platforms.

As for Riverdale, the soapy thriller was off from its series-high Season 2 premiere numbers (0.8, 2.3 million) but was on par with its Season 2 average and up from the finale.

It was pretty good news all around for the other broadcast networks, with a few ratings upticks and a lot of series holding as shows are starting to settle into their fall ratings levels.

CBS’ Survivor (1.6, 7.7 million) and Fox’s Empire (1.6, 5.12 million) repeated as tied for No. 1 among adults 18-49, both up a tenth from last week in the demo after upward adjustments in the finals while adding a few eyeballs.

SEAL Team

Things were also looking up for CBS’ Wednesday dramas, SEAL Team (0.9, 5.6 million) and Criminal Minds (0.8, 4.6 million), both inching up a tenth in the demo from their soft openers last week, when the Season 2 premiere of SEAL Team matched a series demo low and veteran Criminal Minds hit series lows.

Also logging an uptick of 0.1 18-49 ratings point was Fox’s Star (1.3, 4.3 million). Fox again ranked as the night’s top network in the demo.

NBC’s One Chicago lineup continues to impress. After upticks for two of the series and a hold for the third with the first crossover last week, there was no letdown last night. Chicago Med (1.3, 8 million) and Chicago PD (1.2, 7.1 million) were on par, while Chicago Fire (1.4, after an upward adjustment in the finals, 8.4 million) rose by a tenth for a second consecutive week, all three series defying the typical post-crossover ratings drops. Chicago Fire was the top program of the night in total viewers, logging its most-watched regular-slot episode in 2.5 years, since Tuesday, April 26, 2016, when it had a Voice lead-in. NBC won the night in total viewers.

After a sizable Week 2 drop, ABC’s A Million Little Things (0.8, 3.7 million) stabilized in Week 3, even with its Week 2 demo delivery. Fellow ABC Wednesday rookie Single Parents (1.0, 3.7 million) is still sliding, down a tenth from last week despite its lead-in, Modern Family (1.4, 5.1 million), holding steady. Also even week-to-week was 8 PM anchor The Goldbergs (1.3, 5.1 million), while American Housewife (1.0, 4.3 million) ticked down a tenth.

The Criminal Minds Team Uncovers Mummies in This Exclusive Sneak Peek! – TV Guide

There’s still a few more weeks until Halloween, but that isn’t stopping Criminal Minds from being straight up horrific. The show has been known to have some really gross ways of murdering victims, but Wednesday’s episode is next level.

When the BAU team discovers the victims in this exclusive sneak peek, they’re shocked to learn that they’re mummies. That’s right, the UnSub likes to mummify his victims and then hide them in the floor boards and walls of houses. Rossi (Joe Mantegna) gets the honor of discovering the one in the video above when he’s called out to a crime scene where the recovery dog is so overwhelmed by the smell of bodies, his little paws can’t scratch fast enough at all the locations.

Here’s How Criminal Minds Embedded a Serial Killer Cult in a Decade Old Episode

When the team is done excavating, Rossi is left standing in the middle of a pile of mummified bodies that had spent god knows how long stuffed in the walls of that house. But how many more mummies are out there? Also, someone please give that poor dog a treat.

Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on CBS.

'SEAL Team' & 'Criminal Minds' Return To Ratings Lows, 'Single Parents' & 'Things' Slip, One Chicago Solid With … – Deadline

Snapshot: New series Week 2: ABC’s Single Parents (1.1 Live+Same Day rating in 18-49, -15%, 4.3 million viewers), ABC’s A Million Little Things (0.8, -27%; 3.8 million); Returning series premieres: SEAL Team, Criminal Minds both down from last year, logging lows.

Wednesday is quickly becoming a night of diminishing returns for the broadcast networks. I noted last week how not a single show was able to crack the 2.0 adults 18-49 Live+same day rating on Premiere Wednesday. A week later, no program scored more than a 1.5 in the demo with a slew of week-to-week declines.

NBC fared the best with its new One Chicago lineup, which staged its first crossover for the season in Week 2 with Chicago Fire and Chicago Med swapping places. Chicago Fire (1.3, 8 million) at 8 PM was on par with its L+SD demo rating last week (up a tenth from the fast national); Chicago Med (1.3, 8.8 million) ticked up a tenth from last week, while Chicago P.D. (1.2, 7.8 million) was even. The three Chicago series finished #1-2-3 in total viewers for the night, with NBC claiming its biggest Wednesday viewership percentage margin over #2 with in-season series programming in nearly 16 years, since Dec. 11, 2002.

Fox, which was tied with CBS for No.1 in 18-49 last Wednesday, held solely the top demo spot last night though both of its series were down double digits week-to-week. Empire (1.5, 5 million) dropped 21% in the demo and 18% in viewers to hit and tie series low. Star (1.2, 4 million) slipped 14%.

Empire still was the top program of the night in the demo, tied with CBS‘ Survivor (1.5, 7.3 million), which held up relatively well, down a tenth from the fast national demo rating for the 90-minute season premiere last week, two tenths from the final. Leading out of that, the Season 2 premiere of SEAL Team (0.8, 5.1 million) was down from last year, matching a series demo low. Veteran Criminal Minds (0.7, 4.4 million) launched its fourteenth season with series lows. It was the lowest-rated program of the night in 18-49 on the Big 4 networks.

It was a string of week-to-week declines at ABC too. The steepest, -0.3 or 27%, was for new drama A Million Little Things (0.8, 3.8 million) at 10 PM. It came after encouraging Live+3 lifts for the relationship drama and a special rebroadcast of the premiere on Tuesday for extra sampling. Fellow new ABC series, comedy Single Parents (1.1, -15%; 4.3 million) and its lead-in, veteran Modern Family (1.4, 5.4 million) both were off by two tenths. In the 8-9 PM hour, The Goldbergs (1.3, 5.1 million) and American Housewife (1.1, 4.4 million) each slipped by a tenth.

Leading out of that, SEAL Team (5.1 mil/0.8) returned down from both its freshman average (6.7 mil/1.0) and finale (6.1 mil/0.9), matching its demo low. Criminal Minds (4.4 mil/0.7) opened its shortened Season 14 with series lows in both measures.

Elsewhere….

Criminal Minds Celebrates 300 Episodes: Behind-the-Scenes Hang Out Secrets Revealed – E! Online

Criminal Minds is celebrating 300 episodes with the season 14 premiere, appropriately titled “300.” Not many shows have made it to this milestone, and it’s safe to say not many shows are like Criminal Minds—nor are many casts like the group of people playing together on this CBS drama.

“We genuinely hang out on weekends and we have giant text chains and email chains,” Paget Brewster told E! News at the show’s 300th episode celebration. “We genuinely enjoy each other.”

Brewster and Joe Mantegna even have vacation homes near each other, Mantegna said.

“It’s been years. We trust each other, we’re around each other all time…All of our families know each other,” Brewster said.

“You can’t make that happen,” Mantegna said. “That’s chemistry. That’s the indefinable aspect.”

In fact, the ladies of Criminal Minds—Brewster, A.J. Cook, Aisha Tyler and Kirsten Vangsness—have “hot tub wine machine time.” As Tyler describes it, it’s the four of them sitting in Vangsness’ hot tub, drinking wine and talking. “It’s one of the closest, most supportive groups I’ve ever worked with,” Tyler revealed.

That’s what happens with 300-plus episodes produced. Could there be 300 more?

“I would do 499 more,” Matthew Gray Gubler told us.

“You know what’s amazing? I could see this show going another 300 episodes,” executive producer Erica Messer told us. Messer also wrote the script to the 300th episode. “It is a world that has endless stories because it’s based on the psychology of human behavior—that’s endless…As long as we have heroes who want to keep chasing the bad guys I feel like we could keep going, and going, and going.”

Criminal Minds‘ 300th episode airs Wednesday, Oct. 3 at 10 p.m. on CBS.
