Spooky Sitcoms: 9 Times Classic Shows Got Creepy, Scary or Downright Weird

24 October 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sitcoms have given us so much - laughs, convoluted misunderstandings and even life lessons. But on occasion, they also broke from the typical formula and gave us a few scares. Sometimes they did it to celebrate Halloween. Sometimes they just did it to freak out children in the audience who might not be in on the joke. Here, then, are a handful of the oddball episodes of classic sitcoms that you can watch right now online - and that you might not believe actually aired until you see them for yourself. The Facts of Life, "The Seven Little Indians" Aired: »

Who Are The Leading Guest-Star Candidates for Scandal Season 4?

23 October 2014 4:06 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I grew up during the heyday of Tgif.  I remember fondly going to my best friend’s house on a Friday after school and we would watch the classics: Family Matters, Step by Step, Boy Meets World, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Those were the glory days – when people would actually stay home on a Friday night and watch wholesome television. ABC even tried to bring the genre back in the mid 2000’s with 8 Simple Rules and Hope and Faith, but by then audiences had stopped caring. Then along came Shonda Rhimes. She first entered the scene in 2005 with a little show called Grey’s Anatomy. Now the writer/producer/director dominates Thursday nights with fan favorite Scandal and new hit How to Get Away with Murder. The night has been dubbed Tgit and has proven to be a ratings success for the alphabet network. Whether you are a fan of Scandal or not, »

Video of the Day: Key & Peele’s most vulgar sketch – Georgina and Esther and Satan

18 October 2014 6:19 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The comedy duo Key & Peele recently took us back to 1997 and behind the scenes of one of the era’s most popular shows, Family Matters. When Comedy Central released the sketch on Youtube, it didn’t take long before it went viral.

Don’t get me wrong; The Family Matters sketch is pretty amazing, but for my money, the best skit from season four (so far), features two elderly church-goers named Georgina and Esther. Their conversations follow a formula that begins with the introduction of a sin followed by an increasingly vulgar condemnation of Satan. Leave it to Key and Peele to have their most vulgar sketch take place inside of a church. Watch the video below.

10 Best TV Shows Of Fall 2014

14 October 2014 11:22 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The CW

For a lot of years, television has been viewed as sort of second string to film. It was good, of course, but usually couldn’t match the quality of the high profile, big budget blockbusters we saw at the cinema. But recently, television has been making huge strides towards closing the gap, thanks to some tremendously innovative, groundbreaking programs. So it’s fair to say that in regards to the new crop of television shows premiering this fall, our expectations are understandably pretty high. We’ve gotten used to Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, and Orange is the New Black — goofy little Chuck Lorre comedies on NBC just aren’t going to cut it anymore for the discerning viewer. We have more refined tastes now.

The following shows are the programs that we think have the potential to be genuinely good. Tellingly, there’s a healthy mix between the networks, »

Urklemania is Unstoppable in Funny Key & Peele Sketch - "Reginald VelJohnson"

10 October 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

“This was supposed to be a blue collar Cosby Show. Now you turn it into goddamn Quantum Leap? Who writes this shit?”

An extremely funny sketch from Key & Peele has been released called "Reginald VelJohnson." This comedy duo is awesome at taking topical, historical, and pop-culture oriented subjects and turning them in short film sketches. This latest one takes us back to the time of the popular family TV series Family Matters, and the when the character Steve Urkel became a pop culture icon. 

The sketch features actor Reginald VelJohnson (Jordan Peele) storming into the office of a Family Matters studio executive (Keegan-Michael Key) to complain about how Urkel is taking over the hit series, which was originally supposed to be a family-based sitcom centered on the Winslows. The sketch then turns into a take on Urkel’s ridiculous inventions, which later tormented the character Carl Winslow both onscreen and, »

Vampire Diaries Recap: The L Word

9 October 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“He was my boyfriend, I loved him and he died.” That was Elena’s mantra on Thursday’s Vampire Diaries as the heartbroken doppelgänger struggled to erase the love she felt for Damon. But was her major purge a success?

Sadly… yes. By zoning in on the exact moment Elena realized she could love Damon forever, Alaric was able to systematically pull apart her feelings for him. And while the whole experience was expectedly gut-wrenching — That dance! That kiss! — nothing compared to the main event, or as Twitter reffered to it, »

'Key & Peele' Mock (and Celebrate) 'Family Matters'

9 October 2014 6:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Remember how Steve Urkel wasn't supposed to be the star of "Family Matters"? Well, so does Reginald VelJohnson, a.k.a. Carl Winslow. In this "Key & Peele" sketch, watch as an enraged VelJohnson (Jordan Peele) confronts a producer about the weird sci-fi evolution of "Family Matters." You will die, and then you will snort and ask yourself, "Did I do thaaaaat?" (Nsfw, language.)   »

Last night on "Key & Peele" they dove head first into the insanity that was the '90s sitcom "Family Matters" with a behind-the-scenes look as Reginald Veljohnson (portrayed by Jordan Peele) confronts ABC's vice president (portrayed Keegan-Michael Key) with questions as to the show's direction now that Steve Urkel has taken over. Where it goes from there is utter hilarity and not safe for work, so put those headphones on.

Votd: Key & Peele reimagine the dark side of Urkel

9 October 2014 6:42 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Vulture got an early look at a sketch from next week’s episode of Key & Peele, in which the comedy duo take us back to 1997 and behind the scenes of one of the era’s most popular shows, Family Matters. Key & Peele parody genres while bending expectations better than anyone else, and they’ve continued to be on a roll in this latest season, including one alien invasion sketch we shared with you from last week. This one however takes the infamous character of Urkel and the popularity he had to an unbelievably dark level. Suffice it to say, you’ll never look at that kid with the rainbow suspenders the same way again. Watch it below now before it blows up as the next viral Liam Neesons.

Key & Peele’s Family Matters Sketch Takes on Urkel, Is Perfect

9 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There was always something sinister about Family Matters. Here was a show seemingly about a humble Chicago family, and yet it somehow became about an annoying supernerd. That's why Vulture is happy to premiere a sketch from next week's Key & Peele that finally puts the show into its place by way of a seriously intense, seriously bizarre, seriously brilliant sketch. You'll never look at Urkel the same way ever again. Hell, you might not want to look at him ever again at all. »

If you were a child or a parent during the early '90s, there's a good chance that ABC's Tgif lineup graced your TV set. Remember Tgif? A two-hour block of family-friendly comedies that tried to make it seem fun staying in on Friday nights? It officially debuted 25 years ago this month - on Sept. 22, 1989, with a lineup that included Perfect Strangers, Family Matters, Full House and Just the Ten of Us. And notably, it debuted four years before that other landmark '90s TV block, Must See TV. The early promos are a trip, as they're both introducing the »
