Sure, USA’s shows seem like they’re all the same with their formulaic titles and their never-ending runs. Unfortunately, all is not rosy in the land of Suits (the one about lawyers who dress well) and Psych (the one about a detective who only pretends to have special powers). News broke Tuesday that Necessary Roughness (the one about the counselor who works with football players) has been canceled. Yes, yes, it’s all very sad. But dry your tears and remember that this leaves room for the network to finally pick up on our idea for Just Desserts! »

In this week’s Revenge, Victoria thinks she’s finally about to bring Emily’s house of cards tumbling down by playing her ace – the revelation that Daniel won’t be her first husband! But not only does the bride-to-be manage to trump her archenemy (as always), a wildcard emerges from the shadows that could make the villainess wish she’d folded a long time ago…
Just Desserts? | Early on in “Secrecy,” we learn that Victoria has decided on a co-ed bridal shower for Emily. (No shock there, the bride-to-be tells Daniel. “Everyone knows your mother prefers the company of men. »

Stars: Hal Holbrook, Leslie Nielsen, Adrienne Barbeau, Fritz Weaver, Leslie Nielsen, Carrie Nye, E.G. Marshall, Viveca Lindfors, Ed Harris, Ed Harris | Written by Stephen King | Directed by George A. Romero
Creepshow is an anthology of five stories, some written specifically for the film by Stephen King and others adapted from his own short stories. With tales that include a dead father rising on father’s day for a family reunion, macabre drownings, monsters in crates, a strange “green” infection you’ll never forget and cockroaches revenge every story has a suitably creepy and memorable end.
I could take a look at each story in the anthology but I’m sure that people who are reading this review will no doubt have already seen the film before, if not then you are in for a treat – this is a movie directed by George A. Romero, based on the writing of Stephen King, »

Up until this past year, I’d always thought ‘whatever happened to the horror anthology sub-genre?’ We haven’t had a decent one since Michael Dougherty’s 2007s cult classic Trick R’ Treat. While a recent resurgence may have seen the likes of V/H/S and The Abcs Of Death attempt to recapture that spirit, »

Will and Sonny keep vigil for Chad. Is there time for a quickie in Will’s old hospital room?
This would so win on Just Desserts.

Daniel refuses to give up, dammit! Live, Dammit! Breathe, Dammit! Don’t you die on me, Dammit! Cameron and the nurse feel it’s hopeless, and I’m pretty sure the nurse is rolling her eyes. These scenes are intercut with Stefano in the chapel begging god to save his son, Dammit! Chad is gone, though. Daniel says ‘Call it,” and starts to walk away. When …suddenly … there’s a beep »
"This is a local shop, for local people. There's nothing for you here!"
It's been over a decade since The League of Gentlemen came to an end on the BBC after three incredibly dark and incredibly funny series. It's been eight years since we finally bid farewell to the show's characters in the bonkers movie spin-off Apocalypse.
However, one of the show's creators Reece Shearsmith gave hope to the show's fans yesterday that there might be a reunion on the cards, tweeting a picture of three of the show's writers (or is it possibly four?) posing together.
Digital Spy presents you five reasons why the League of Gentlemen comeback must happen.
1. We still need the rest of the rules for Go Johnny Go Go Go Go...
We know it's "a cross between Hoover and 8 Men Down", but we're still a little in the dark as to rules on the wildcards. »
Creepshow, the collection of horror tales from Stephen King and George A. Romero, will be getting a new UK Blu-ray release from Second Sight Films. We’ve included a look at the cover art and the list of bonus features below. Unfortunately, there is no news of an upgraded Us version from Warner Bros., but the Creepshow UK Blu-ray will be available on October 28th.
“One of the classic horror anthologies, Creepshow is the gloriously ghoulish collection of comic-inspired tales served up by the masters of the macabre, Stephen King and George A. Romero. There’s the family reunion and a murdered father who still wants his cake; the backwoods yokel who discovers a meteorite with a life of its own; one husband’s vengeful plan that will leave his cheating wife and her lover up to their necks in it; another’s hope that the vicious occupant of a »

"Big Brother 15's" batch of houseguests contains a couple real winners this year, like Aaryn Gries, who has been heard on the live feeds making racist and homophobic slurs against her fellow houseguests, including saying of Helen, an Asian married mother of two, to "shut up and go make some rice" and of Candice, an African-American houseguest, that you should "be careful what you say in the dark, might not be able to see that b****."
Aaryn is hardly the only (or the worst) person in the house to be making these comments, but she's the first to feel some official backlash -- which she won't even know about until she's off the show.
Zephyr Talent in Austin, Texas has decided to drop Aaryn from its agency.
In a statement, the agency says, "Aaryn, season 15 cast member of Big Brother, revealed prejudices and other beliefs that we (Zephyr Talent) do not condone. »
