MonsterVision

Back in the 1990s, TNT aired a program called MonsterVision. The show took many forms over the course of the decade, including narrators and guest hosts. There was even a short stint in which famed magicians Penn and Teller hosted marathons of old B-Movies from the 1950s and 1960s. Ultimately, though, the reason MonsterVision looms large is because Joe Bob Briggs hosted the program from 1996 until the show’s demise in 2000.

‘Stargirl’ Trailer: The CW Superhero One, Not the Disney+ One

It’s been a confusing day for girls named Stargirl. First, Disney+ releases the trailer for Stargirl, a coming-of-age drama film based on the novel of the same name by Jerry Spinelli.
