Unsurprising as it was to see MTV joining the movie-TV reboot trend with an adaptation of iconic teen horror thriller ‘Scream,’ we have to admit a bit of pause with the notion of MTV’s rendition ditching the iconic “Ghostface” mask. Now, producers have gone on record to confirm that while “Ghostface” is no more, in its place will be a “darker” take on the classic look, potentially one made of human skin.

‘SNL’ Scorecard: Woody Harrelson Wins the Quarter Quell

Woody Harrelson’s third time as host of ‘SNL’–and his first since way back in 1992 (he hosted just a few weeks after Jason Priestly)–was actually pretty great. Anticipation for an ‘SNL’ host is a fickle beast. Now, one might circle the calendar when he or she sees, say, Chris Rock’s name show up as host, then that show winds up being a bust. I suspect that not a lot of people were thinking, Oh, man, Woody Harrelson is hosting ‘SNL’! I need to cancel all of my plans because that will be one I can’t miss. Then Harrelson goes out and is everything we want out of a host: funny, up for anything, looks like he’s having fun, willing to sing a song about apples that is still stuck in my head. Anyway, he hosted the best show of the season so far and here is your ‘SNL’ Scorecard.
