14 Musical TV Episodes Ranked From Showstopping to Show-Stopped (Photos)

  • The Wrap
You know how some people love to sing but are straight up tone deaf and should not be allowed to belt out a single note? Yeah, the same goes for TV shows. While many have tried to pull off a song-fueled installment, few do it well. Ahead of the highly-anticipated “Carrie: The Musical” episode of The CW’s “Riverdale,” TheWrap decided to rank some of the best-known endeavors to put a little skip in a series’ step with a few ditties, from the showstopping to the show-stopped.

See a sampling of our entries below and flip through the gallery to see all of the episodes ranked.

Once More With Feeling” — “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”:

There is literally no other episode of any other TV show past, present or future that could take the No. 1 slot from Joss Whedon’s musical extravaganza “Once More With Feeling.” A demon who comes to town to make everyone reveal all their secrets through song who can only be stopped by an epic dance off led by Sarah Michelle Gellar who had to be auto-tuned? Yeah, no, everyone else go home. It didn’t hurt that cast members Anthony Stewart Head (Giles) and Amber Benson (Tara) have some wicked pipes.

“Song Beneath the Song” — “Grey’s Anatomy”:

The “Grey’s” musical episode revolved around Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) after they were in a bad car crash, and ends with Callie proposing to Arizona. While the episode received mixed reviews from critics, it’s gone down in “Grey’s” infamy as one of the least-enjoyed by fans.

“Red Socks” — “7th Heaven”: Easily the worst musical episode of all time. No one on the cast could sing and we have no idea what they were singing about.

We’ll see how “Riverdale”s “A Night to Remember” — which features “Carrie: The Musical” — stacks up against these others when it airs on April 18.

New The Grudge Movie Slated for August 16th, 2019 Release in the Us

Prepare to be scared by what's making noises upstairs rather than what lurks in the basement, because a new Grudge movie is slated to come out next summer.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new Grudge movie is set to haunt Us theaters on August 16th, 2019. Considered a reboot for the film franchise that first started in Japan with 2002's Ju-On and in America with 2004's The Grudge (co-starring Sarah Michelle Gellar and Jason Behr), the new Grudge film is set to star Andrea Riseborough, Demian Bichir, John Cho, and Lin Shaye. The American Grudge franchise currently spans three films and focuses on a lethal, paranormal curse that haunts those unfortunate enough to become ensnared in its rage-inducing grasp.

We Need to Talk About the Guy Who Plays Sebastian in 'Cruel Intentions: The Musical'

Real talk: there are two weeks left to see Cruel Intentions: The Musical before it leaves the stage in New York City and You. Need. To. Go. I've already seen it three times and honestly, I would see it three more. It's literally just like the '90s movie with Ryan Phillippe, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Reese Witherspoon, and Selma Blair — but with a jukebox musical flair, featuring all of your favorite hits from the '90s. Think "Genie in a Bottle," "Bye, Bye, Bye," and "I'm Just a Girl" fitting perfectly into the plotline all while Sebastian and Kathryn exude their step-sibling lust. But let's be real, the main reason you need to see it is because of the really f--king hot guy who plays Sebastian. Constantine Rousouli is a gift to the world and I don't understand how he is real.

Just in case you didn't know, Sony Pictures is developing a remake of the horror film The Grudge. According to Variety, Demian Bichir (Hateful Eight) and Andrea Riseborough (Oblivion) have been cast in the movie.

Sam Raimi is producing the movie through his Ghost House production company and it will be directed by Nicolas Pesce from a script that he wrote.

"We are so excited about this new adaptation. We went back to the original source material to deliver a relentless supernatural thrill ride that explores the horrors of American suburbia."

Who knows, maybe this Grudge remake will actually be a good and scary, but it's hard to be excited because of the fact that it's just another remake.
