The "Scream Queens" Premiere

Scream Queens

Ryan Murphy's Scream Queens premiere was average, with its all star cast it still falls flat. The show opens with a party hosted by Kappa Kappa Tau sorority sister back in 1995 with a sister giving birth to a baby in a bathtub, but later she died. Since instead of taking her to a hospital they decided to dance to TLC song "Waterfalls". Then fast forward to 2015, the sorority is now headed by Chanel Oberlin known as Chanel #1 and is played by Emma Roberts. She has three members, Chanel #2 Ariana Grande, Chanel #3 Billie Lourd, and Chanel #5 Abigail Breslin. There's no Chanel #4 since she died of meningitis.

Shows like these has been played over and over again with the same story-line no wonder despite getting big numbers on social media, the Nielsen's numbers is just 1.7/6 in 18-49, 4.04 million viewers overall. The horror comedy opened with a 1.7 rating in 18-49 and then held at a 1.6 for its final three half-hours, according to the prelim nationals. It tied for the 18-49 lead in the New York market with “The Voice” (2.9/10).

The show is supposed to be funny, but it's not. I think in the end this show will crash and burn.
