'Wiccan Good and Love the Earth and Women Power and I'll Be Over Here': 'Salem' Trailer

We get it, you wish you lived in California.
Naturally, WGN decided to go right to the top of the food chain for original cable dramas by latching onto historical gothic horror. The Salem witch trials to be exact. Because if you’re a Chicago network trying to make it big, it’s only natural to smear Boston.

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his
Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
