Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Halloween Weekend EditionYou will have plenty of Halloween options starting tonight with CBS covering all bases with "NUMB3RS", "Medium" and "Ghost Whisperer" (fans of the last two should check out this "Spirit of Friday Night" website) but don't forget oldies but goodies like Psycho on TCM at 9pm. Tomorrow there will be Halloween fare all over the place with scary movies on IFC, TCM, and AMC which will be running Night of the Living Dead back to back from 6pm until midnight. You can always check out Martha Stewart's TV options or consider one of these "True Blood" jack-o-lantern stencils for last-minute Halloween ideas.

Sunday you can recover from your efforts with a marathon running of the original "V" series on Syfy starting at Noon - do this in preparation for the launch of the remade series launching on ABC this Tuesday at 8pm which looks pretty damn good. Then settle in for an evening that should begin with an excellent episode of "Nature" on the births of many interesting animals before moving on to the difficult choice on the premium channels at 9pm: serial killer "Dexter" on Showtime or comedy hour on HBO with "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Bored to Death"? We're going with comedy. Be sure to check out our full listings!
"American Dad" has been picked up for a 6th season thus ensuring that FOX's animation-Sunday stays fully animated. Not sure if that's such a good idea but if you are a fan, let us know, is this show any better than "The Cleveland Show"? If you had to pick between the 3 Seth MacFarlane shows, would "American Dad" be the one?
If you're interested in the status of a favorite show (on the big networks), you should check out The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed Live Feed's TV Series Survival Status Chart. We use it regularly as a reality check along with with Tim Goodman's (of the SF Chronicle) Power Rankings.
The TV Junkie Plan: Tonight - "Stargate Universe", "The Soup", "The Prisoner", Letterman, Fallon. Saturday - The Body Snatcher. Sunday - "V" Miniseries Marathon, "Nature", "Curb Your Enthusiasm", "Bored to Death", "Mad Men".
