Like a masked killer who won’t stay dead, Scream Queens will be back for a second season. But we won’t have to spend any more time on the dreaded Wallace University campus, because the new series will be set at a hospital—a pretty natural choice for Ryan “American Horror Story: Asylum” Murphy.
In a double-episode finale, Scream Queens’ jigsaw plot finally came together in a semi-coherent manner. The Red Devils were all revealed, and most of the guilty parties were punished. But the satisfaction of knowing the truth wasn’t enough to redeem a show that’s consistently cloaked its satire in grating shrillness.
Plus Robot Chicken is back with more weird superheroes! There are midseason finales of all your favorite shows. A killer is finally unmasked on Scream Queens! Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter arrives in a four night miniseries event! But will Felicity Smoake go up in gas on Arrow? It’s this week’s TV!

Next week, Scream Queens will air its final two episodes back-to-back and we will finally learn if all the shrieking and flailing and feather-covered outfits and anorexia jokes have led to a satisfying conclusion that makes any sense whatsoever. On “Black Friday,” though, we shop!
Doctor Who turns everything upside down. The Flash and Arrow cross over to battle Vandal Savage. Minority Report ends. Plus the live-action debut of Red Tornado! And lo, The Wiz! live on television! All this, and much, much more, on This Week’s TV!
For people who don’t have families, live far away from their families, or have families they’d rather not see, Friendsgiving is the best option this time of year. Scream Queens illustrated this point in an episode that also killed one character, brought another back from the dead, and deployed some A+ guest stars.
Gravity Falls is airing its final episodes. Doctor Who is trying a strange experiment. The Walking Dead shambles off with a midseason finale, and the premiere of Regular Show: The Movie! All this, Gina Gershon, and more, on This Week’s TV!
We feel you, Chanel Number Three: Scream Queens is a stinker. But in the interest of seeing the mystery through, we soldier forth for episode eight, “Ghost Stories,” which sees the offing of a few big characters as well as an awful lot of time-wasting.
Jessica Jones comes to Netflix, Man in the High Castle streams on Amazon, and Marceline the Vampire Queens gets her own four-part miniseries on Adventure Time! A deadly Grant Morrison character swoops in on Gotham, a Jim Henson project is thawed in time for Thanksgiving, and Clara’s future is revealed on Doctor Who!…
While actress Jamie Lee Curtis independently became a “scream queen” through her role as Laurie Strode in the Halloween franchise, she also comes by her title through heredity. In 1960, Curtis’ mother Janet Leigh delivered one of the most iconic onscreen shrieks of all time as Marion Crane in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho…
We’ve all been saying this since week one, but without Jamie Lee Curtis, Scream Queens is nothing. The rest is vapid nonsense holding up a paper-thin serial killer story that’s spread over way too many episodes. But “Mommie Dearest” did actually allow the mystery to creep forward a few degrees.
It’s looking like a shotgun wedding on Gotham. Meanwhile, Doctor Who tries its hand at the “found footage” genre, and Ray Palmer finally escapes the subatomic universe! And just who the hell is Zoom, anyway?! All this, and much, much more on This Week’s TV!
Scream Queens took a break last week (thanks, baseball), and we hardly missed it. Its return to the airwaves, “Beware of Young Girls,” yielded one huge clue that moved the show’s central mystery forward, a few juicy Jamie Lee Curtis scenes, and a whole lotta hot air. Let’s dive in, shall we?
Elizabeth Henstridge teases the future of Simmons’ relationship with Fitz on Agents of SHIELD. Captain America: Civil War merchandise reveals details about Cap’s new costume.

Alan Tudyk wants in on the Booster Gold/Blue Beetle movie—but only if a Firefly costar joins him. Mark Ruffalo talks the Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok. Get a look at Killer Frost on The Flash. Plus, oodles of clips from Supergirl, footage from Ash vs. Evil Dead, and behind the scenes on The Shannara Chronicles. To Me, My…
Things have gotten bad on Scream Queens—and we don’t mean for the Kappa sisters. We mean for the audience. We’re not even at the season’s halfway point, and whatever suspense this show had going for it has completely evaporated.
Though “Pumpkin Patch” is only its fifth episode, Scream Queens has already exhausted every slasher-movie cliché, and has moved on to aping other horrors: The Shining, The Silence of the Lambs, and, uh, Orange is the New Black. More problematic: the show has become virtually plotless.
We get two semi-big revelations (and one admittedly funny Matthew McConaughey impression) on this week’s Scream Queens; the rest is a whole lotta filler studded with handy reminders that one could actually be watching a real campy horror flick (Leprechaun FTW!) instead.
Let’s hope so! We’ll get our first clue as to whether The Flash can avoid the dreaded Sophomore Slump this week. Also, Arrow is lightening up. Lady Gaga comes to American Horror Story! Also: Doctor Who gets spooky, and Peter MacNichol returns to Agents of SHIELD. It’s a thrilling week of television!
