The Daily Show
Cheers to Jon Stewart for his truly fair and balanced interview with President Barack Obama on The Daily Show.

In his first sitdown with a current Chief Exec, Stewart walked a fine line between respect and irreverence — and never lost sight of the Comedy in Comedy Central, even though the Prez was not in a jokey mood. Dispensing with any opening shtick, he brought Obama out immediately and let the show run several minutes longer than usual (to the dismay of some DVR users). Stewart was critical of the President and his party...

Red: Werewolf Hunter (Saturday, 9/8c, Syfy)
Not to be confused with the Bruce Willis/Helen Mirren movie about Retired and Extremely Dangerous spies, this Halloween-ready TV-movie stars Felicia Day (The Guild, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog) as a carrot-topped descendent of Little Red Riding Hood who's mixing it up with a different sort of wolfish predator. Things get complicated when Red brings home a fiancée who get bitten by a werewolf, making him a prime target of her werewolf-hunting family. Can Red save the day?
An Abby-centric NCIS episode can never be anything other than a good thing, so it was nice seeing Pauley Perrette get to pull out that black parasol — last seen protecting her from the Mexican sun — and do a little obsessive field work in "Cracked." The object of her fascination was a dead Navy lieutenant turned biotech engineer who left behind mountains and mountains of mysterious formulas, along with a history of mental illness. "How's that for dedication?" Abby asked, upon finding that the dead woman had ambidextrously tattooed both her arms with reams of scientific mumbo-jumbo. "I'm officially a fan."
This led to Abby even going down to autopsy to talk to the corpse ...

Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell
The Dunphy and Pritchett families never do anything halfway. So it's no surprise to see Modern Family undergo a Transylvanian transformation for its big Halloween episode.
"Claire [Julie Bowen] is obsessed with Halloween. She's the housewife in the neighborhood with the front-yard graveyard and a maze that trick-or-treaters have to walk through to get their candy," teases Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitchell), who in real life plans to wear his character's muscle-bound Spider-Man costume to a party being thrown at the home of his TV boyfriend...
Derek Hough and Jennifer Grey
The Dancing With the Stars surprises are suddenly adding up: Bristol Palin survives, yet again. Audrina Patridge is eliminated and the contestant judge Carrie Ann Inaba dubbed "the chosen one," Jennifer Grey, has to go back to basics before she implodes.
"I think after what happened Monday night I might take a little bit different approach, choreography-wise," says Grey's pro partner, Derek Hough, looking humbled after hearing the judges describing Grey's dancing as out of control and telling her to "calm down." Is he going to simplify the routines?
Lucas Neff and Shannon Woodward
Like a candy apple with a razor blade buried inside it, Raising Hope's Halloween outing was both sweet and sharp. Last night, the Chance clan celebrated the season of the weird by giving us tricks (the guys duping Jimmy into thinking Hope had been left at the firehouse), and treats (the first appearance, albeit masked, of Sabrina's doofy beau, Wyatt), as well as trauma that even an exorcist won't be able to fix (Maw Maw in that transvestite-ninja kitty outfit). On top of it all...
