Beavis and Butt-Head, Beavis
And the Halloween countdown continues ...
With a bona fide classic leading the way, as the patient and faithful Linus once again declares It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (ABC, 8/7c), as he's been doing ever since the Charles Schulz animated special premiered in 1966 (and yes, I was the target audience back then). As Lucy runs afoul ...

Leave it to Shawn and Gus to find the sharpest way possible to stick it to the vampire craze.
Last night, the perfect storm of crime fighting and pop-culture comedy that is Psych served up a bloodsucker-centric scream that flowed with bloody goodness like a severed vein. Perfectly (and misleadingly) titled "This Episode Sucks," the hour first won us over with the guest spot by Kristy Swanson, the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer, here ...
Michael Emerson and Jim Caviezel
Jim Caviezel is knackered. It's about noon, and he and Person of Interest costar Michael Emerson have just concluded a gauntlet of satellite interviews at CBS' Midtown Manhattan headquarters. He apologetically struggles under our...
Hold on to your ears, Law & Order: SVU fans. Loud-mouthed comedian Gilbert Gottfried — known primarily for naughty Comedy Central roasts, voicing the obnoxious parrot in Disney's Aladdin and getting fired as the Aflac duck — is bringing his 'beloved' voice to the long-running NBC procedural.
Executive producer Warren Leight explains...

If you can spot the vampire reference in the line "Let the right ones in, buddy" — from tonight's enjoyably spoofy episode of USA Network's Psych (10/9c) — then you're in for a real treat, as Halloween is played for laughs (more often than not on purpose) on a variety of tonight's shows.
The cleverest might be Psych's guest star-studded comic mystery (titled "This Episode Sucks"), in which a body drained of blood leads Shawn and Gus to deduce a vampire is on the loose. Could said fiend be the new mystery lady in Lassiter's life? She's played by original-movie Buffy Kristy Swanson, so anything's possible. Also making ...
Cheers to Cheryl Ladd for her divinely twisted guest appearance on NCIS.

The former Charlie's Angel got in touch with her devilish side as Mary, the doctor who snared the affections of coroner Donald "Ducky" Mallard (a never-more-charming David McCallum) after they met online. (DiNozzo's rendition of "Ducky's in Love," to the tune of Ricki Lee Jones' "Chuck E.'s in Love," was a nice touch.) But don't believe everything you see on the Internet: She turned out to be a psycho who murdered cheating military men via unwittingly self-induced overhydration.
Bloody Mary wanted to show Ducky something he'd never seen before, and in the process, Ladd showed us something we'd never seen before — her range as ...
Chaz Bono, Lacey Schwimmer
You can only imagine the enormity of the pressure on Chaz Bono during his six-week run on Dancing With the Stars: He was the child of Cher, one of the world's biggest celebrities, he had bad knees and was terribly out of shape, and there were rumors of death threats because his presence on the show made him the poster boy for the transgender community. In fact, the show's impressive security presence — big, beefy guys who are scattered throughout the ballroom — was always heightened when Chaz was on stage.
But he remained a humble, dignified, good-humored guy, holding his own in the face of ...
The Major League Soccer playoffs begin today and run through November 20, when the last two teams standing will play for the MLS Cup. This year's title game will be held at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., home stadium of the Los Angeles Galaxy, who once again compiled the best regular-season record to win the Supporters' Shield and are, at least on paper, the team to beat. "They have the perfect mix of superstars, young talent and veterans who have been in the league a long time," says ESPN's Adrian Healey. "All over the park they are solid. Defensively they've been very hard to...
