Thursday, October 31, 2013: Halloween Night 2013

What's Halloween without overflowing buckets of candy, ill-fitting kids' costumes, slutty nurses, fat Batmen and annual airings of It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown? Nothing, that's what.

ABC dusts off the 1966 animated classic featuring Charlie Brown, Linus and the rest of the Peanuts crew for a post trick-or-treating 8 PM airing, followed by the less-classic 1972 cartoon, You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown (a.k.a. The Anthony Weiner Story) at 8:30 PM. If your kids resent being made to watch animated fare, force them to indulge in live-action nostalgia in the form of Saturday Night Live: SNL Halloween, an hour-long special featuring Halloween-themed skits from the Not Ready for Primetime Players' storied past that premieres on NBC at 8 PM. Speaking of SNL and kids, current cast member Kenan Thompson is hosting The Hub's First Annual Halloween Bash, which is re-airing at 8 PM after premiering on October 26. At 9 PM, switch over to the Travel Channel for a Halloween edition of Ghost Adventures, which takes paranormal globetrotter Zak Bagans off to Transylvania. And as the witching hour of midnight approaches, Adult Swim welcomes Tim and Eric back into its fold with the duo's latest anthology series, Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories, which premieres with a "Haunted House" installment. Hopefully, the kids are asleep by then, but you know how long those sugar rushes can last…

If you're interested in non-Halloween programming, CBS has a new episode of Elementary at 10 PM, preceded by fresh half-hours of The Millers and The Crazy Ones at 8:30 PM and 9 PM respectively. NBC's Thursday night line-up remains in place, with new episodes of Sean Saves the World, The Michael J. Fox Show and Parenthood at 9 PM, 9:30 PM and 10 PM. Also at 10 PM watch Olivia Pope dress up like… Olivia Pope on ABC's Scandal.
