It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
To promote Thursday's airing of It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, ABC revived last year's ad featuring Charlie Brown rapping the sales pitch about it.
"Hey, party people, it's Charlie B / Bringing Halloween Thursday to ABC," Charlie rhymes. (Really, it's just the old animation with new voiceover.) "Raking leaves and rolling on a pumpkin / Trick or treat, and then the party gets thumpin.'" In the longer version of the ad, the fun continues: "Lucy's getting bossy / Snoopy's getting saucy / Things have gotten crazy with my Peanut posse." Crazy! "But where is Linus? / This party is posh / he's waiting in the field for a mythical squash." Mythical squash!
When vampires and werewolves turn up in the same movie or TV show, a clash is inevitable.
But if you had to pick a creature of the night to have your back, would it be True Blood's vampire sheriff Eric or sexy (furry) beast Alcide? Buffy's Angel or Oz? Twilight's Edward or Jacob?

"When we created Big Love in 2002, we had a strong conception of the journey the Henrickson family would make over the course of the series, of the story we had to tell," executive producers Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer said in a statement. "While we were in the writers' room this year shaping our fifth season, we discovered ...
The Walking Dead
With its putrid zombie hoard, The Walking Dead is the ultimate Halloween gift for fans of gore: There are splattered heads, swarming flies and enough tattered, rotting flesh to make most watch through splayed fingers. But peel back just a thin layer of the decaying skin and you'll find the heart of AMC's newest drama is entirely human — racing 90 beats a minute, pumping furiously to stay alive. "There's us and the dead. We survive this by pulling together, not apart," says deputy sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln).
"It's a story that anyone can relate to," explains Robert Kirkman, author of the acclaimed comic-book series on which the show is based. "The zombies are representative of disaster, but the focus is on the people — everything they go through."
Rick Grimes is an Everyman with everything: a wife, a son...
The recent — and continued — reports of Charlie Sheen's erratic behavior made us wonder: How long should CBS stand behind the Two and a Half Men star?
Earlier this week, Sheen landed in the hospital for what his rep says was an "adverse allergic reaction to some medication." He reportedly caused more than $7,000 in damages to his hotel suite before police intervened.
America's Next Top Model
Dag, Tyra, make up your mind. Are you against bullying or not? Earlier this season, er, cycle, La Banks tackled the headline-dwelling issue of bullying by having her mini-minions photographed with words that hurt painted all over their bodies. Whether or not the concept was hypocritical (after all, this show is all about being judged), props must go to ANTM for at least trying to be part of the solution.
Then last night they kind of blew it all to hell. By recruiting a gaggle of professional models to dish out backstage abuse to the remaining contestants during a Zac Posen show, Top Model stooped to just the sort of mean-girl antics that Miss Jay actually told the pros to unleash on the newbies. Did they really need to be insulted, shut down and psyched out like that, right before hitting the catwalk?
