‘Dead Rising: Watchtower’ VOD Review

27 July 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jesse Metcalfe, Rob Riggle, Meghan Ory, Keegan Connor Tracy, Virginia Madsen, Aleks Paunovic, Dennis Haysbert, Gary Jones, Carrie Genzel, Reese Alexander, Harley Morenstein, Julia Benson, Peter Benson, Darren Dolynski, Patrick Sabongui | Written by Tim Carter | Directed by Zach Lipovsky

Rob Riggle as Frank West? That was all that I needed to know to be sold on seeing Dead Rising: Watchtower. Never mind the fact its based on one of the best zombie games of the last console generation – though we all know Left4Dead was The multiplayer zombie game – with a tongue in cheek story that played on the tropes of the genre, especially those found in the films of George A. Romero (after all, the first game was set in a mall!)

Dead Rising: Watchtower follows Chase Carter (Metcalfe), a reporter trying to make it big – but the pursuit of his career-defining story leads him into the heart of a zombie-infested warzone. »

1 June 2015 8:14 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Fox has had some great ratings success with animated sitcoms like The Simpsons and Family Guy. Will Golan the Satiable be a monster of a success? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.

Golan the Satiable began as a half-dozen animated shorts (considered the first season) and aired on Fox in late night on the weekends. The series revolves around the strange relationship between a mighty godlord named Golan (Rob Riggle) and a macabre, nine-year-old girl named Dylan Beekler (Aubrey Plaza). The voice cast also includes John Dimaggio and Tara Strong.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am »
