MTV set to 'Scream' with TV version of movie franchise

Tuesday, 30 June 2015 12:28 PM Written by

MTV debuts a TV series inspired by the "Scream" movie franchise tonight at 10 and it's a surprisingly well-made teen horror drama with dollops of self-aware humor. It's a better bet than CBS's ridiculous "Zoo," another series premiere airing tonight.

OWN's 'The Haves and the Have Nots' is a scream

I had never seen OWN's "The Haves and the Have Nots" (9 p.m. Tuesday) because OWN tends to sneak these Tyler Perry shows on without a ton of notice and they often don't send out screeners.

But I needed to watch an episode to see Western Pennsylvania native Allison McAtee at work. And Oh. My. Goodness. This show is so bad.

Entertaining 'Supernatural' music video parody

Wednesday, 24 June 2015 09:17 AM Written by

Fan-created videos are nothing new, but I'm not sure I've encountered one with quite as catchy a tune as The Hillywood Show's "Shake If Off," a "Supernatural"/Taylor Swift mash-up.

At seven minutes, it goes on a little too long but the cameos from "Supernatural" stars (Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki at 5:06) add to the entertainment value.

Comedy Central spoof 'Another Period' debuts tonight

Tuesday, 23 June 2015 10:15 PM Written by

another period 1

Gleefully absurd, Comedy Central's scripted comedy "Another Period" (10:30 tonight) sends up period dramas (think: "Downton Abbey") with humor reminiscent of "Reno 911!" or "Monty Python."
