Happy Halloween to all the ghosts and ghouls out there!
***UPDATE! UPDATE! How I Met Your Mother finally debuts the Slutty Pumpkin tonight with Katie Holmes filling the legen-wait for it-dary role!
1. TV Tonight! Once you've finished trick or treating around the neighborhood, check in for tonight's lineup. With baseball (finally) over, Terra Nova returns to Fox's lineup. NBC has a Halloween-ified Sing Off. Freddy Krueger guest stars on CBS's Hawaii Five-O; NBC debuts Brian Williams' new news magazine show, Rock Center and FX is doing an American Horror Story marathon. If you are very hardcore about the holiday, AMC is broadcasting the original, Halloween.
2. Ratings news. Friday night's NBC premieres had a mixed bag as they went up against Fox's Game 7 of the World Series. While Chuck debuted to an all time low (which is saying something for that show's ratings), Grimm debuted to a decent 6.5 million viewers and a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic (that's fairly comparable to Fringe's numbers so TV Watcher is looking forward to see how they do squared off against each other).
3. Homey don't play that! According to Deadline.com, the Wayans' brothers are reportedly bringing back In Living Color as a special for Fox's upcoming 25th anniversary celebrations. If the ratings pan out, they are talking about returning it to the airwaves on a regular basis. TV Watcher was a HUGE fan of In Living Color and would gladly welcome its return to TV!
4. Deadline.com is also reporting that CBS has bought the rights to adapt a beloved Israeli sitcom about the lighter side of divorce, Life Isn't Everything. CBS pretty much prints money at this point so I am giving them the benefit of the doubt on their purchase.
