We’ve made our pick of 2 hotly-anticipated TV premieres to catch-up on, just before you start lamenting the end of the TV season and switching to a palpably inferior substitute.

Dethroned: “Scream Queens” Gives Us A Reason To Scream
The premise of Scream Queens brought about an incontrovertible sense of excitement. Being produced by Ryan Murphy, or more commonly known as the guy who created Glee and American Horror Story (AHS), Scream Queens was viewed as Murphy’s masterful brainchild: driving at an eclectic mix of horror and comedy, or simply explained as combining the best parts of Glee and AHS. Moreover, Scream Queens boasted an all-star ensemble, which included musical superstars such as Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas; prominent actresses like Emma Roberts and Lea Michele (also of Glee fame); and even the legendary scream queen herself, Jamie Lee Curtis. Quite…
