Kids in the Hall present 'Death Comes to Town' on IFCWhen 'Death Comes to Town' debuts tonight on IFC, it will mark the first time in 15 years the Kids in the Hall have been together on TV. All five kids - Bruce McCulloch, Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson - went their separate ways after their feature film 'Brain Candy,' in 1996.

But they weren't able to stay away from each other for long, reuniting for tours in 2000, 2002, and 2008. The last tour happened to coincide with the writers' strike, which helped get the Kids writing together again. They were looser than ever on that tour, and obviously enjoyed each other's company. They even made a short film or two for the tour, and started thinking about working together on camera again.

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 ...

Kari Byron, Head RushLove 'MythBusters'? Can't get enough of Kari Byron's endearing fearlessness? Then definitely check out her new show, 'Head Rush.' Yes, the after-school science show isn't exactly made for adults, but whose physics and biology knowledge couldn't use a little brushing up?

I also preview Jackie Warner's new weight loss show 'Thintervention,' which she says is designed to target her clients' bodies, minds and souls. So which celeb does she want to help rehab? I see a spinoff, Bravo! Then I catch up with the Kids In the Hall to talk about their new murder mystery miniseries 'Death Comes to Town' ... and squishing heads.

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

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.
