Trophy Wife fans everywhere were elated Friday to hear that ABC had picked up the freshman comedy for a full season, but maybe no one more so than star Michaela Watkins.

Alert to Great Pumpkin fans: You'll need to be almost as patient as Linus for this year's annual showing of It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, which ABC is saving for Halloween night itself, at 8/7c, kicking off Wednesday's great lineup of comedy (though considerably less great without The Middle in the equation). But unlike Linus, you will get your payoff, one considerably more satisfying than the rock Charlie Brown always ends up with after trick or treating.
Are there any timeless classics among Tuesday's Halloween sitcom treats? Perhaps not, but here are a few good reasons to watch (if storm coverage subsides):
Trick or treat? That's what Kate (Dakota Johnson) will find out on Tuesday's Halloween episode of Ben and Kate (airing at 8:30/7:30c on Fox), when she decides to abandon her typically conservative attitude towards the holiday — i.e. dressing her daughter Maddie (Maggie Elizabeth Jones) up as young historical figures — at the encouragement of her flirtatious friend BJ (Lucy Punch). Responsible mom Kate even gets into the Halloween spirit herself, accepting an invitation from her cute neighbor to attend a costume party at his house — and not being shy about showing her interest in him when she arrives.
Ben and Kate
Dana Fox was working on New Girl last year when she came up with the idea of developing a show loosely based on her brother, Ben (he's currently an ad exec but years ago was a bit of a free spirit). The siblings' real-life relationship forms the basis of Fox's Ben and Kate, (Tuesdays, 8:30/7:30c). Nat Faxon and Dakota Johnson star as the brother-sister duo who bicker but ultimately lean on each other for support. Fox filled out our showrunner survey to explain why Ben and Kate deserves some brotherly love....
Mindy Kaling, Nat Faxon
Fox has given full-season orders to new comedies The Mindy Project and Ben and Kate, Fox announced Monday.
Fall TV Popularity Contest: Did you like Ben and Kate and The Mindy Project?
"Ben and Kate and The Mindy Project have everything we want to stand for in comedy: smart writing, hugely appealing casts and comedy that feels contemporary and real," Fox Chairman Kevin Reilly said in a statement.
Where there's hope, there's laughter. And where there's Raising Hope, which returns for a third season tonight on Fox (8/7c), the laughter is of a particularly shameless quality. Take Sabrina's grandmother Nana — please! Actually, as the episode begins, this glam granny has already been taken to the great beyond, her body laid out for the wake in a scenario that almost sounds like a Bones episode: "The Body in the Buffet." (The vain Nana having requested her body be put in the kitchen so people would notice — which Cloris Leachman's unhinged Maw Maw certainly does.)
