Scream Queens Made Me Scream for All the Wrong Reasons

Unless you live under a rock most of you probably heard about and maybe even watched Scream Queens, from creator Ryan Murphy (Nip/Tuck, Glee)  2 hour debut last night on FOX. The show revolves around a suburban college campus gone awry when its most notable Sorority begins to lose its members by the hand of a masked devil killer.

The show's initial intent seems to be to make a big splash this Fall with huge guest stars (Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande) and be a force to be reckoned with in the ratings. But I must say, the show really failed to pack a punch (with me at least) and attempted to make up for this with quippy teenage dialogue like 'basic bitches' and the ever so topical pumpkin spice latte and all the other things the cool kids are doing these days.
