What to Watch: December 20 - 26

The Kenny vs. Spenny Christmas Special - Thursday, Dec. 23, 9PM ET/11PM PT, Showcase

As usual, best friends Kenny and Spenny are at cross purposes. Spenny wants to make a genuinely touching holiday special, while Kenny just wants to humiliate Spenny. Challenges include creating a puppet show and creating an adaptation of Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol.' I'm guessing Spenny plays Scrooge.

'The Kids in the Hall' Return to TV (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Aug 22nd 2010 11:46PM
'The Kids in the Hall' Return to TV'The Kids in the Hall' haven't appeared on network television since 1995. Which means that -- unless you're as old as this particular 'TV Squad' writer -- you might not even remember them. Yes, an entire generation has grown up without the 'Kids' uniquely bizarre brand of sketch-comedy. And that's sad!

But no need to fret: the 'Kids' are back. And what's more, the 'Kids' are all right! (Sorry, we were sort of contractually obligated to make that joke.)

The Kids In the Hall On Murder-Mystery Miniseries 'Death Comes To Town' (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Aug 20th 2010 3:15PM
It doesn't matter how old you are, you've probably squished a head or two in your lifetime.

Chalk up that childish and passive-aggressively satisfying finger action to The Kids In the Hall, the Canadian sketch group who brought us their hit eponymous show and awesomely ridiculous movies like 'Brain Candy.'

I sat down with the group's founders Kevin McDonald and Dave Foley to hear all about their new murder mystery miniseries, 'Death Comes to Town,' which is their first show in over 15 years. What's the show all about, how much are they in drag and how does it feel returning to TV? Plus, will they ever try another movie? It's all right here ...

A twisted preview of the Kids in the Hall's twisted new miniseries

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 8th 2009 5:32PM
The Kids in the Hall's official page at FunnyorDie.com has a preview of their mystery murder mini-series called Death Comes to Town.

The trailer is very promising that we'll get some good ol' fashioned classic KITH, the way Mom used to make it. So far, it's only scheduled for air in Canada next month and even though I'm a big KITH fan, I'm not willing to endure a minute of Canadian winter to watch it. So they better get their collective asses to the U.S. in a hurry.

The Kids in the Hall Bring Death to CBC

by Annette Bourdeau, posted Nov 26th 2009 2:07AM



Canada's favourite cross-dressers are back for a new eight-part mini-series set to air on the CBC this winter. 'Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town' is a comic murder mystery based in the fictional small town of Shuckton, Ontario. All five Kids – Scott Thompson, Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney and Bruce McCulloch – play multiple characters, including, yes, the ladyfolk. McCulloch came up with the concept and took on the role of lead producer.

We caught up with Scott, Dave and almost Kevin (who dashed off for a bathroom break before the interview and never returned) and had a very random conversation about everything from the new mini-series to Kevin's toes to Agatha Christie.

The Kids in the Hall reunite for a murder-mystery miniseries

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 19th 2009 1:02PM
The Kids in the HallJust imagine how much fun Harper's Island could have been if it had been written by and starred The Kids in the Hall. If you live in Canada, you don't have to imagine it, because the Kids are creating just that.

Death Comes to Town is to be an eight-part comedy where the Kids (Scott Thompson, Dave Foley, Mark McKinney, Bruce McCulloch and Kevin McDonald) will each play multiple roles, possibly including some of the characters made famous on The Kids in the Hall sketch comedy show. I'm hoping the murderer kills people by crushing their heads.

Sketch Comedy Saturday: The Kids In The Hall

As a special Sketch Comedy Saturday treat, I will forgo the lengthy, typed-out, text version of me humming the Kids In The Hall theme song and get right down to business. This is one of those shows that are now considered classic sketch comedy (and Canadian comedy), so I feel silly for even having to profile them, but I am constantly surprised by the number of people whose eyes glaze over when I ask them if they've ever heard of the Kids. So ... Have you heard of the Kids?

Kids in the Hall working on new miniseries - VIDEO

kids in the hall reunion minisereis
The news that The Kids in the Hall are working on a new Canadian TV miniseries should make comedy nerds everywhere happy. I know I'm excited, even though it might be a while until it airs in the U.S. (I'm kicking myself for not moving to Canada like I said I would after the 2004 presidential election.)

Mr. Dave Foley told the Canadian Press that all the original Kids (Foley, Bruce McCullough, Mark McKinney, Scott Thompson and Kevin McDonald) are writing an eight-ep miniseries for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the home of their original sketch comedy show. It sounds like their recent reunion tour went pretty well. The five-member troupe will star in the series, which Foley says won't be a sketch comedy, but will involve a number of comic characters.

Dave Foley and Bill Nye visit Stargate Atlantis this week

by Mike Moody, posted Nov 19th 2008 10:02AM
Dave Foley David Hewlett Stargate AtlantisDo you know what a dilithium crystal is? Ever use the term "cosplay" when discussing your weekend plans? Own more than two non-Star Wars action figures? If you answered "Affirmative!" to any of these questions, then you'll be staying home this Friday night, because you're a nerd. It's cool. That means you'll be able to catch this week's ep of Stargate Atlantis, with guest stars Dave Foley, Bill Nye the Science Guy and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. All nerds, by the way.

Kids in the Hall vet Foley plays a professional rival of Dr. McKay (David Hewlett), who invents an anti-global warming device that, instead of ending global warming, almost kills everybody at a swanky party, including Nye and DeGrasse Tyson. Not intrigued? Gateworld says there might be a scene with Jewel Staite stuck in a giant freezer. I know. It's a good show.

In Plain Sight: Trojan Horst

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 23rd 2008 11:23AM
Mary McCormack(S01E04) Okay, this was the best episode of In Plain Sight to date. Action-packed and filled with character revelations, if this is where In Plain Sight is going, it's going to definitely make it beyond this premiere season.

The set up has Marshall and Mary taking custody of a seemingly innocuous, diabetic, asthmatic accountant/arranger for a hit man named Lola. He's been caught in an FBI sting and will go WITSEC in exchange for "delivering" Lola.

Expertly played by Dave Foley (News Radio), he's just enough of an unctuous ass to make him amusing. When Mary throws him to the ground and pounces on him, he says, "Could you get off of me, you're not exactly petite."

The role was very much like Charles Grodin, a mob accountant, in the movie Midnight Run, with Robert DeNiro as the bounty hunter forced to take him cross country. (If you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and rent it; it's great!)

NewsRadio: Review - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 18th 2008 3:01PM
standout episodes(S03E02) Originally aired on September 25, 1996.

First off, can we all agree that none of the episodes in the fifth, Phil Hartman-less season of NewsRadio aren't even in the running for one of the best of the series?

OK, once we start with that, it's still ridiculously hard to pick an episode that stands out. So many episodes from the first three seasons (and several in the fourth) could easily fit into this category. So I'm not even going to attempt to pick one episode to talk about. Thanks for reading, and have a good day.

Oh, alright, if you insist. I'll go with "Review," from the third season.

Kids in the Hall complete series megaset - DVD review

by Annie Wu, posted Oct 29th 2007 9:21AM
Kids in the HallSometimes, when it's too rainy outside to go anywhere and the air is full of a sense of doom and gloom, all you want is to just hole up indoors and watch hours and hours and hours of nonstop Canadian sketch comedy and cross-dressing. Hey, I can't possibly be the only one that feels that way, because otherwise, the Kids in the Hall complete series megaset wouldn't have been made. I had a full rainy week to lounge around with this lovely collection and we got to know each other pretty well. It's a real sweetheart, to be sure... A real cross-dressing, head-crushing, fact-sharing, cabbage-headin' sweetheart.

Bruce McCulloch of Carpoolers: The TV Squad Interview - AUDIO

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 2nd 2007 11:28AM
Bruce McCulloch and the cast of Carpoolers
When I wrapped up my interview with Bruce McCulloch -- executive producer of ABC's Carpoolers and a member of the legendary comedy troupe Kids In The Hall -- I asked him if there was anything else he might be working on. "Yeah, I'm going to have a heart attack next March, and I wanted people to know about that," he joked. For a guy who has worn a lot of hats in his career, nothing has kept him busier than being the boss.

Carpoolers, a single-camera comedy premiering on ABC tonight at 8:30 PM ET, is about four guys who use their carpool to explore what's going on in each other's lives. The show is McCulloch's brainchild, which means he's involved with everything from the writing to how many donuts will be on the craft services table. Yet he still has time to write and perform his own surreal works, as well as perform occasionally with the Kids, who have been together for almost a quarter-century.

I got a chance to speak to McCulloch last week, and we talked about what it's like to premiere after the season's most lambasted new show (Cavemen), what parts of himself he sees in each of his main characters, what it's like to work with Fred Goss and Jerry O'Connell (who spoke to our friends at AOL last week), and why the Kids have managed to stay together for so long. Highlights are after the jump, as well as an audio embed of the interview (35 minutes).

A clip from the Kids in the Hall live show - VIDEOS

Kids in the hallMan, how I miss this show.

Someone who attended the Kids in the Hall reunion performance at the Just for Laughs festival posted the encore on YouTube, and I've placed it below for your viewing pleasure. Some of the dialogue is difficult to make out, but fans shouldn't have any trouble figuring out what's going on. Mark McKinney reprises his role as the "headcrusher" guy, that wormy fella who loved to vanquish those he disliked by closing one eye and pretending to crush their heads between his thumb and forefinger. In the segment below, he kills off the other cast members (Scott Thompson, Bruce McCullough, Dave Foley and Kevin McDonald) for their poor career choices post- Kids in the Hall. In a final bit of inspired meta comedy, McKinney turns his wrath on himself.
