This year’s Blood List has named the 13 best genre scripts around town, and in its sixth year the annual screenplay contest is expanding its scope to include hot books, TV pilots, and young scribes ripe for signing. Taking top honors in 2014 is sci-fi thriller Bird Box from The Thing and Final Destination 5 scribe Eric Heisserer, an apocalyptic tale of a woman trying to lead her children to safety – all three blindfolded – after monsters descend on earth that turn people insane on sight. Universal set Heisserer to adapt the manuscript from Josh Malerman in 2013 for Mama helmer Andy Muschietti. Previous Blood List alumni include Black Swan, Stoker, Warm Bodies, and the upcoming Blumhouse thriller The Boy Next Door.
Like the Black List naming the top unproduced screenplays circulating around Hollywood, the genre-focused Blood List taps exec votes to determine each year’s best unmade horror, sci-fi, and thriller scripts. »

It’s Halloween! Icicles are glistening from window sills. Chestnuts are roasting on open fires. North Pole elves are… hang on, no. None of that nice, fluffy stuff is happening. At Halloween, demonic creatures hunt for flesh, monsters creep out of their graves, and TV does its level best to freak us all the hell out.
In the spirit of all that, we asked our writers to select and share the TV episodes, horror or otherwise, that have made them whimper with fear. Here they all are, 31 of them, because, well, at Halloween, we like things to add up to 31.

Question: Do you have any scoop on Castle Episode 8? —Jess
Ausiello: Titled “Kill Switch,” the episode revolves around a routine investigation that turns deadly when a gunman takes hostages on a subway car — including one of the 12th’s finest.

Fox’s coverage of Game 6 of the World Series won Tuesday’s ratings race in key demos, but the lopsided nature of the contest freed up viewers to tune elsewhere and that helped male-friendly dramas like CBS’ “NCIS” and “Person of Interest” and ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” post week-to-week gains.
Reliable numbers for the World Series weren’t available Wednesday morning, but the Kansas City Royals’ 10-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants averaged a 3.0 rating/9 share in adults 18-49 and 11.3 million viewers overall on Fox’s stations from 8 to 11 p.m., with these averages expected to rise a bit in the nationals. The deciding Game 7 of the World Series is set for tonight in Kansas City.
Elsewhere, CBS moved ahead of NBC on the night in young adults behind its crime drama trio of “NCIS” (2.5/8 in 18-49, 17.2 million viewers overall), “NCIS: New Orleans” (2.3/6 in 18-49, 15.7 million »

Opening ABC’s night, a Halloween special thing did 3.8 mil/1.1, improving on the 3 mil/1.0 that Selfie/the since-snuffed Manhattan Love Story most recently averaged. And at 10 pm, Forever (5 mil/1.1) was down a tenth.

NBC has solved the mystery of whether of not Debra Messing's latest show will continue to air. The network has given a full-season 22-episode order the new drama “The Mysteries of Laura.” Emmy Award winner Messing stars as a New York homicide Detective named Laura Diamond, who has to juggle the responsibilities of being a cop and being a mom. After six episodes, "Laura" has averaged a 1.8 rating, 6 share in adults 18-49 and 10.4 million viewers overall. While the overall viewer numbers have been good, the series is skewing toward a very old audience. It also stars Josh Lucas, Laz Alonso, Janina Gavankar and Max Jenkins. Writer Jeff Rake ("Boston Legal") and director McG ("Supernatural") are executive producing the series along with Greg Berlanti ("Arrow"), Aaron Kaplan ("The Neighbors"), Todd Lituchy and Sarah Schechter. “Debra has effortlessly infused Laura with a relatability that is captivating audiences,” said NBC president Jennifer Salke in a press release. »

It’s pretty exciting when a familiar face is scheduled to return to Supernatural, mainly because there’s really not that many familiar faces still around for the Winchesters to welcome back into their lives, as most of their friends, aside from Castiel, Sheriff Mills, and Felicia Day’s Charlie, and all of their family are pretty much dead. In tomorrow night’s episode of Supernatural, entitled “Paper Moon,” we will see the return of a character that I doubt many viewers would consider a fan favorite, but one that they should definitely remember. I’m talking, of course, about Kate the werewolf, who was first and last seen in the Season 8 found footage episode “Bitten.” In the episode, Sam and Dean decide to not go after Kate and let her live, after she promises to not hurt any humans and only feed on animals. It’s one of the rare instances in the show… »

Supernatural fans have seen Castiel, an angel played by Misha Collins, rocking the same outfit for six seasons now on the CW hit series. The angel with free will has become known for his khaki trench coat, black suit, white button down shirt and blue tie. In fact, when he was human for a brief stint in season nine, he was forced to throw away his dirty uniform when he only had enough cash to buy food and not do his laundry...and fans were not happy seeing Cas in regular, human clothes! It was like seeing Santa rocking blue jeans...aka not pretty at all. But did you know that Castiel's outfit was not an original costume? Supernatural creator Eric Kripke actually based »
