This scene from last night’s Scream Queens, in which someone in a plastic red devil mascot costume kills another character in an ice-cream cone mascot costume by cutting off his cream head with a chainsaw while Wham!’s “I’m Your Man” plays, is so perfectly absurd as self-contained imagery that I won’t bother to explain it further. What a wonderful world.
Within the first 10 minutes of last night’s Empire Season 2 premiere, Cookie donned a gorilla suit to protest mass incarceration at a #FreeLucious rally that seemed like a send-up of Black Lives Matter...
Ryan Murphy’s latest series, Scream Queens, premiered last night on Fox and the most shocking thing about the horror-comedy series is how good it was. The acting of the large ensemble was on point almost across the board—if Emma Roberts, the principal character and president of the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority the show focuses on, can keep up the pace, she’s headed for a tour de force. The script at times seemed like more of a worthy heir to Heathers than virtually anything that’s come in its wake attempting to recreate its magic—it’s that funny, that idiosyncratic, that nasty.
The votes are in, and America has crowned its Favorite Dancer. But before they could crown said dancer, So You Think You Can Dance had to fill about two hours of air time. So watch and experience a version of the world where flash mobs aren't all terrible.
Last night, the Top Four dancers on this season of So You Think You Can Dance danced their hearts out. As always, some performances were better than others, but only one performance involved a dancer dancing her eyes out. Watch as tappers Valerie and Zack perform a contemporary routine all about how love can truly bring you to your senses.
It starts like this: All-Star tWitch, choreographer WilldaBeast, and Usher's "Yeah." Simply put, that is a recipe for perfection. Take a look at tapper Valerie and tWitch's hip hop routine from last night's So You Think You Can Dance.
Did you hear the news? Happiness has been canceled. So watch (through your tears over the elimination) as dear, sweet Rudy and his All-Star Allison dance a Fatal Attraction-esque (and sad—don't forget sad) jazz routine to Michael Jackson's "Dirty Diana."
You should know that this kind of thing, this thing here where Will Arnett announces to a screaming late-night audience that more Arrested Development will be coming and then every TV-themed blog or vertical in the world writes the same 125-word post about that announcement, that shit is so 2009. Having to go through it again is the exact kind of punishment we deserve if no one is willing to approach any of the cast or crew on the street, from here on out, and slap them broad-hand across the face.
Last night, the top 10 performers on this season of So You Think You Can Dance got to perform alongside the All-Stars, aka the dancers America knows already and have been waiting for this whole season. Watch as pin-up girl Jessica and a youth-challenged tWitch take the stage.
This week's So You Think You Can Dance gave us a bumping hip hop routine in an otherwise average episode. Unfortunately, a little bit of cultural appropriation (which goes a long way) in the form of a witch doctor and a voodoo doll was the origin of said routine.
Reason number 207 why So You Think You Can Dance is the superior reality competition show: It opened its most recent episode with a fantastic dancing chess board routine. I'd like to see Master Chef try and do that.
Last night, So You Think You Can Dance bust out the first sexy routine of the season. Take a look at this jazz routine, which could definitely be described as a game of sexy cat and mouse.
Last night, So You Think You Can Dance celebrated its 200th episode with a musical performance by singer/songwriter/choreographer/guest judge/derrière aficionado, Jason Derulo. Take a look as he performs his one-track minded single, "Wiggle," alongside a "just happy to be collecting a paycheck" Snoop Dogg.
So You Think You Can Dance often includes contestants with dead parent sob stories in place of actual personalities, and Wednesday night's callbacks episode did not disappoint.
So You Think You Can Dance is the type of show where a dancer who goes by the stage name "Marie Poppins" not only isn't a walking punchline, she's fucking awesome. The episode saved her for last, for obvious reasons, but there are no such rules about waiting to show the best part of the show here at Morning After. Roll the tape:
So You Think You Can Dance is back for its 11th season, and when Cat Deeley reminds us that the show has been on "every summer for the past decade," it's hard not to be amazed. It's also hard not to feel ancient and decrepit, especially in comparison to all of the 18-year-olds auditioning for a chance at to be crowned America's Favorite Dancer. Yes, the chances of this season's winner not being able to legally drink are fairly high, so the rest of us adults should drink to that.
