It's Always Friday the 13th For These Cursed TV Stars and Shows

by Jane Murphy, posted Aug 13th 2010 4:30PM
Steven WeberThere are just some people, places and one particular sport that cannot find success in primetime series TV. Why? Who knows? On this Friday the 13th, we review the cursed ones, and hope for better luck for our deserving-of-better listees.

Steven Weber. Alas, his last stalled series ended just months ago, ABC's 'Happy Town.' Following his breakout on 'Wings', he tried to break free from ensemble series with a show called -- oh my! -- 'Cursed.'

So cursed was 'Cursed,' it was renamed 'The Weber Show' midway through its brief run. Since then, he has guest starred on hits ('In Plain Sight', 'Desperate Housewives') and had a near-miss in 2007.

by Jane Boursaw, posted Nov 13th 2009 12:00PM
True Blood, Anna Paquin as Sookie StackhouseFriday the 13th seems like the perfect time to offer our condolences to some of TV's unluckiest characters. Oh, they try their best to lead happy, healthy lives, but their karma will have none of it.

Instead, these poor souls are destined to sweat, strain and struggle their way through life as best they can, whether it's cleaning up the blood of loved ones or looking into a dismal future.

Read on for our sympathy notes to a few unfortunate souls on the tube...

This is the first week in quite some time that I'm definitely, definitely, definitely going to buy one of the DVD sets that is being released. And that would be 30 Rock. Can't wait for the fourth season to start in October.

New TV on DVD releases this week

Route 66Here are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

One of these days I'm going to get these Route 66 sets. Since I haven't bought any so far and this is a Producer's Picks set, it might be a good place to start. Don't remember the Fat Albert Easter special. Maybe that's the one where he ate a lot of candy and got fat?

And if you haven't gotten the older season one set of House yet, you should buy this one because it's "Anamorphic." Which I think means it was filmed underwater.

  • A Haunting - Demon Angels and House of Fear
  • Alvin & The Chipmunks - Mystery of the Easter Chipmunk
  • Dragon Ball Z - Season 8
  • Fat Albert & The Cosby Kids - Easter Special
  • Friday The 13th - Season 2
  • House - Season 1 (Anamorphic Edition)
  • The Inauguration of Barack Obama on CNN
  • Kennedy - The Complete Miniseries
  • Life with Derek - Let The Games Begin

AMC's Monsterfest starts next week

Notice I didn't put an exact date for when Monsterfest starts in the title. I'm not quite sure when it starts. The American Movie Classics site doesn't have an exact start date. If you click on Monsterfest Schedule it goes to October 21, and the first couple of movies are The Birds and Psycho, but then there are a few war movies and dramas, so I'm not sure if this is the "official" start of the Monsterfest but I'll take their own link as gospel.

Elvira

Yup, that's right, an open casket call, for FOX's new reality show, The Search For The Next Elvira.

It's happening this Friday (Friday the 13th, natch) at 4pm on The Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA. But if you can't make it there, you can download an application from the show's web site. They're looking for a new horror hostess to take the reigns from the classic horror movie icon.

Family Guy: It Takes A Village Idiot, And I Married One

Lois Griffin and Mayor West, Family Guy

(S05E17)
As I got into this episode, two things occurred to me. First, since next week is the season finale, when did they decide to cut this season to 18 episodes? More importantly for our purposes here though, this episode felt very familiar. It took a minute, but when Lois and Mayor West got to the debate, I remembered what it was. The main story was very similar to the season two episode, "Running Mates."

Here are your television tricks and treats for this Halloween

by Richard Keller, posted Oct 23rd 2006 12:23PM

HalloweenBoo! Did I scare you? Well, if I didn't that's okay. I'm not much into scaring people since I gave Uncle Barry that heart attack at last year's Halloween party by putting a bloody finger into his apple-tini. Eh, Barry deserved it; he was always a putz. And constantly asking for money. I mean, one time . . .

Sorry, wandered off for a bit there. What was I talking about? Oh, yes, scaring people. There's really no need for me to scare anyone this upcoming Halloween since my good old friend television can do it much better. In fact, now that there are so many channels to choose from, you can watch hours of blood and gore and ooze into the wee hours of the morning while noshing on all of the 'good' candy that your children bring back (this would be anything from the Hershey or M&M/Mars family of candies).

So, to make your life a bit easier while you come down from that sugar buzz, we here at TV Squad have provided you with a comprehensive list of Halloween-themed programming that will be airing on from about dinnertime on October 31st into the first of November. It's all there, from the Halloween and Friday the 13th films (and their numerous sequels) to Halloween-themed Roseanne episodes, to classic Vincent Price movies such as House of Wax. We even mention Dark Town, which airs at 3:15 am on Wednesday, November 1st. In Dark Town a lesbian and a gangbanger team up to battle vampires. Gosh, what will the entertainment industry think of next?

The complete (or as near as complete list) can be seen right after the scary jump. Ooh!
