The spooky season is in full swing and the TV networks are rolling out their Halloween programming! Here’s what you can look forward to this week! ● MONDAY ● Animation Domination FXX from midnight to 2:00am Halloween specials sampler from midnight-2 a.m. The Chew ABC at 1:00pm Monday through Friday It’s Halloweek at ABC and the Chew crew falls into line. Among other things, they will secretly assign each other a costume to wear on Friday. A Halloween Boofest PBS at 3:00pm Curious George gets a visit from Belinda Carlisle. Halloween marathon AMC 7:00pm Monday through Wednesday, 9:00am Thursday and Friday All the “Halloween” movies! Dancing With the Stars ABC at 8:00pm Speaking of costumes, the contestants will all dress up for tonight's competition. Maybe one couple will dress like Puritans and refuse to dance at all. Jelly Belly Candy Corn Food Network at 8:30pm The first challenge requires the contestants to create candy corn. If anyone can’t create some, I’m sure my sister still has some left over that she’d be glad to share. Scorpion CBS at 9:00pm Sort of a Halloween theme, most directly when Ralph doesn’t want to go to his school’s Halloween party. Goth Kids Comedy Central at 9:30 pm This is a “South Park” episode, so it may be a little edgier than, say, the “Great Pumpkin” special. Quack O’Lanterns A&E at 11:30 pm Yup, even “Duck Dynasty” gets in on Halloween. All the guys dress up in costume, presumably keeping the genders separate, while Phil “carves” his jack o’lantern with a shotgun. ● TUESDAY ● Mustache Day Nickelodeon at 11:30am A “Wallykazam” take on trick-or-treating. General Hospital ABC at 2:00pm Here’s a unique angle: a celebration of Beggars’ Night, which falls on Halloween Eve just like the better-known Mischief Night. The Great Halloween Fright Fight ABC 8:00pm Now here’s a direct challenge to Christmas. People who overdecorate their houses for Halloween compete for a $50,000 prize. NCIS CBS at 8:00pm Okay, it’s a subplot, but the team does discuss Halloween costumes. Maybe they could consult with “The Chew.” Dead of Night TMC at 8:00pm The first in a number of horror flicks this week. Marry Me NBC at 9:00pm Trick-or-treating plus a haunted house. NCIS: New Orleans CBS at 9:00pm The cast here exchanges some costume talk, but they also have a bigger Halloween advantage. They’re in a town that dresses up fanatically for this holiday. About a Boy NBC at 9:30pm Fiona and Marcus get all grumpy when they discover Will loves Halloween, because they hate it. Guess what happens next. ● WEDNESDAY ● The Middle ABC 8:00pm Fifth year, fifth Halloween special. That’s what we like about the middle of the country. It’s reliable. South Park Comedy Central at 8:00pm A whole string of Halloween episodes. The Goldbergs ABC at 8:30pm A Halloween party goes, of course, terribly wrong. Modern Family ABC at 9:00pm Claire lets Phil do Halloween. Mistake. Criminal Minds CBS at 9:00pm Trick-or-treater disappears for the second Halloween in a row. Not good. Black-ish ABC at 9:30pm Pranks! And more costumes! Stalker CBS at 10:00pm Featured items include a haunted house and a Halloween party gone bad. As if this show needed more things to make it creepy. American Horror Story: Freak Show FX at 10:00pm Speaking of shows that really don’t need a holiday to break out the creepy. ● THURSDAY ● It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown ABC at 8:00pm The classic. Two and a Half Men CBS at 9:00pm Alan has a scare that has nothing to do with ghosts. A To Z NBC at 9:30pm Andrew and Zelda throw a Halloween party, which they both claim they hate to do. Pawn Stars History at 11:00pm Who knew a pawn shop would be the center of a vampire hunt? ● FRIDAY ● 24 Hours of Horror TCM starting at 6:00am Features include “Carnival of Souls” at 4:45 p.m., “Night of the Living Dead” at 8 p.m. and “House of Wax” at 11:45 p.m. Law & Order: SVU USA starting at 8:00am Twelve hours of Halloween episodes. The Real Wolfman History at 9:00am History channel takes a look into the real Wolfman. Rocky Horror Picture Show Logo at 10:00am A whole day of good clean Rocky Horror fun. Twilight movie marathon FXX from noon until 10:30pm Zombies: A Living History History at 1:00pm The walkers get their day. General Hospital ABC at 2:00pm Franco and Carly plan a Halloween wedding. Now there's a novel twist. Halloween Marathon Disney Channel from 2:00pm until 10:30pm. A witches’ brew of Halloween episodes from Disney channel shows. From Dusk Til Dawn El Rey at 2:00pm The whole 10-episode first season. Halloween Tech History at 6:00pm The Halloween industry, revealed. Cristela ABC at 8:30pm Sometimes the people who like Halloween least have the most Halloween spirit. Hawaii Five-O CBS at 9:00pm This week’s killer is copycatting a slasher movie. Ireland's Celtic Demons Travel at 9:00pm Two hours on disturbing Irish legends, not including the recent history of the national football team. Jimmy Kimmel ABC at 11:30pm The essence of the holiday with costumes and candy.
