Lost in all this week's understandable hubbub over NBC putting Community on midseason hiatus — and no, I'm not happy about it, either — was the welcome news that NBC is at least doing the right thing by its freshman sleeper comedy Up All Night and moving it to Thursdays come January, swapping time periods with Whitney. (What took them so long?) On this week's new episode (8/7c), yet another Saturday Night Live alum makes a guest appearance:
The list of ghosts on American Horror Story keeps growing. Among the formerly warm bodies we added last week: a woman from the 1920s who coaxed her husband, a doctor with a Frankenstein fetish, into performing abortions on starlets; Moira, who was shot by Constance back when Moira looked like Alexandra Breckenridge; and Hayden, whom Larry murdered because he apparently wants to help Ben not just out of the house but with all of his problems. (Oh come on, you know that's not the last you've seen of her!)
American Horror Story: Connie Britton answers burning questions
Unfortunately for the Harmons, Halloween has arrived, the day when the dead are allowed to make like they're living. In the first hour of a two-part Halloween event (Wednesday, 10/9c, FX), series bosses Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck are handing out both tricks and treats. Here's what to expect:

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE A HAUNTED HOME: To hell with Casper. The ghosts are decidedly unfriendly these days. Not content to go "Boo!" in the night, the malevolent spirits that haunt FX's terminally twisted American Horror Story (10/9c) have a tendency to get under the skin, playing sexually charged and violent mind games with their victims.
But how frightening is this haunted-house creep show? Depends on whether you're of the "less is more" or "more is more" school of terror. Horror Story errs on the side of overkill, reminding us of the perilously thin line between what's scary and just plain silly. From Ryan Murphy (Glee) in his garishly gothic psychosexual Nip/Tuck mode of wretched excess, this is so overstuffed and disjointed in its reckless piling on of nasty shocks-for-shock's-sake, it often feels as if it were edited with a Cuisinart on "chain saw" setting.
Still, I defy you not to get goose bumps anytime a character descends into the Cellar Where Disgusting Evil Lurks, starting with the classic prologue — set in 1978, the year Halloween premiered, and ...
