Getting kids to go to sleep when you want them to can be difficult. "The Pajanimals" hope to help accomplish that task. The four cuddly friends on the show snuggle together each night to sing sweet nighttime songs to their preschool friends at home. The puppet characters include bossy dog Apollo, energetic duck Squacky, quiet horse Sweetpea Sue, Italian cow CowBella and the unseen Mom and Dad, the parents of the Pajanimals. "The Pajanimals" is produced by The Jim Henson Company, veteran producers of children's programming.
"Face Off" puts on its game face in this spinoff of Syfy's popular makeup artists competition series. It features former "Face Off" all-stars matching skills in head-to-head battles, with multiple reveals and eliminations culminating in a grand prize winner. On each episode, four artists race to complete three challenges. A competitor is sent home after each challenge, and after three rounds, the artist left standing is awarded $10,000. McKenzie Westmore hosts, while Academy Award winners Ve Neill and Rick Baker serve as judges. A rotating cast of guest judges also are featured.
Cosplay -- the practice of dressing up as characters from movies, books or video games -- is a popular activity in the sci-fi community. People transform themselves into pop culture-inspired creations, often with an emphasis on anime characters. Usually, it's just for fun and playful contests, but on "Cosplay Melee," the perfect costume can be worth $10,000 to a cosplayer. Each episode sees four contestants creating full costumes and character origin stories, then hitting the runway in an attempt to impress the judges, who are world-class cosplayer LeeAnna Vamp and costume creator Christian Beckman, by looking -- and acting -- the part. Whoever the judges feel most embodies the character is proclaimed the winner and earns the grand prize. Actress Yvette Nicole Brown ("Community") hosts the show that Syfy says compares to reality show "Face Off" but "with a triple dose of adrenaline."
