If you believe any press is good press, then this was a great couple of days for FOX and horror shows. After years of media dormancy, the PTC (Parent Television Council) publicly decried FX’s American Horror Story AND FOX’s Scream Queens as two of the sickest shows in TV history for their high levels of sex and violence… sometimes simultaneously. While they were more disgusted with AHS, it is on late, and on cable. Scream Queens, on the other hand, is on network TV and airs at 7pm in midwestern areas. So as I’ve been telling you, if you like bloody good fun, Scream Queens is pissing off the right people! You gotta hand it to Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy, who created BOTH shows.

Spoilers below for Scream Queens.

Written by Tom Smuts and Matthew Weiner
Created by Matthew Weiner
Starring Jon Hamm, Elizabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, John Slattery, Rich Sommer, Aaron Staton, Kiernan Shipka, Kevin Rahm

Don (Jon Hamm) is back at the top of his advertising game, but the womanizing is leaving him hollow. He wants to reconnect with Rachel Mencken (Maggie Siff) after dreaming of her, which was a haunting foreshadowing, because she had passed away the week before.

Joan (Christina Hendricks) gets severely sexually harassed by clients, then gets in a snit with Peggy (Elizabeth Moss) when Peggy kinda alludes to it being her fault. Peggy goes on a unexpectedly wonderful blind date, then thinks again during next harsh light of the morning.
