A nocturnal guy named Vlad? Hey, it's nothing to worry about! The popular PBS Kids-Jim Henson Company series Dinosaur Train gets a leap on Halloween with a special episode airing Monday, Oct. 27 that finds the Pteranodon family riding the Night Train all the way back to the Jurassic Period.
Jake and the Never Land Pirates
It's absolutely Darling! Fans of the Disney Channel superhit Jake and the Never Land Pirates will get a double dose of wonderful when the series airs a primetime special — Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Battle for the Book! — that includes the series' first ever appearances by Wendy, John and Michael Darling.
Grab a hanky, or 12. Soap superstar Alison Sweeney checks out of NBC's Days of Our Lives next week, nearly 22 years after she joined the show as stormy conniver Sami Brady. Sami leaves Salem a widow, thanks to the recent presumed death of her hubby EJ. But there's good news: After a series of deeply emotional farewells with friends and family, she will head to L.A. where studio execs — who have read that horrid Sami expose written by her son — are eager to put her story on screen. Of course, TV Guide Magazine had to get Sweeney's take on all this!
Charismatic supercreep Adam Newman will return to CBS's The Young and the Restless Wednesday, Nov. 5, and he'll be looking just like Justin Hartley! TV Guide Magazine had a chat with the former Revenge star about the return of the presumed-dead Adam, who will now be sporting a new puss thanks to plastic surgery. Word is, he wants his old life back. And what Adam wants...
Patty Duke, Dove Cameron
They laugh alike, they walk alike, at times they even talk alike. You can lose your mind: Veteran actress Patty Duke is once again playing it twice, this time on Liv and Maddie, the Disney Channel comedy about identical twins.
He's not just getting suspicious — he's getting pretty damn pushy. The launch of Grimm's fourth season finds wiseass Sgt. Drew Wu (Reggie Lee) determined to find out why Det. Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) keeps diaries filled with creepy monsters tucked away in his home. And why has Nick been harboring that machete-wielding killer? Can Wu handle the truth?

Henry Ian Cusick and Paige Turco
The CW's The 100 returns this week for Season 2 with more post-apocalyptic tales and a new focus, as the teens exiled to an irradiated Earth are joined by their parents. The show ended its freshman season with plenty of cliffhangers and all sorts of villains — as well as the mysterious place known as Mount Weather. Executive producer Jason Rothenberg filled out TV Guide Magazine's Watch My Show survey to explain why there are hundreds of reasons to catch up with The 100.
Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin
One of the trickier aspects of reviewing TV during a new fall season is judging series based solely on their pilot episodes. It's better to have more in advance, but not always an option. So while I was pleasantly surprised that two of my favorite new shows, The Flash and Jane the Virgin, were on The CW, I was also a bit nervous that they might not be able to sustain.
Over The Garden Wall
It's almost time to go Over the Garden Wall. Cartoon Network's first animated mini-series begins Nov. 3 and TV Guide Magazine has an exclusive look at the ambitious event's music.
Created by Patrick McHale (Adventure Time), the 10-episode tale follows two brothers, Wirt and Greg (voiced by Elijah Wood and Collin Dean), who mysteriously find themselves outside of the world they know and in a forest called the Unknown. In a Wizard of Oz-like twist, they have stumbled into a fantasy universe of the past filled with the things of folk tales, as well as talking and singing animals, all wrapped up in the seemingly constant backdrop of harvest time.
