The Poster for Peter Pan Live! Is a Fantastic, Campy Mess

Allison Williams

It looks like we've finally found something to replace the Smash-shaped hole in our heart and its name is Peter Pan Live!

(Seriously. What is up with that?)

Weekend TV: Simpsons' 25th Treehouse of Horror, Foo Fighters' Sonic Highways, Finales of Knick and Manhattan

The Simpsons

Some milestones can't help but make a longtime TV viewer feel a bit long in the tooth. Such is the case this Sunday, as Fox's The Simpsons marks a full quarter-century of spooky satire with its 25th annual "Treehouse of Horror" Halloween trilogy (8/7c), which strikes a nostalgic chord from its opening fanfare, echoing the classic (and still-missed) theme from Johnny Carson's Tonight Show — with a macabre twist, naturally.

The news basically broke the Internet last week; the only way I'll believe you missed it is if A) you were in a coma until today, or B) you were stranded on a deserted island and you're reading this story on the airplane that just rescued you.
