CliqueClack’s scary guide to your Halloween TV viewing



I don’t know how it happened or when it happened but sometime between my childhood and now Halloween became a big business. As big as Chrismakwanzakuah in many cases. The evermore elaborate costumes, the re-theming of every product you purchase, the decorations. Face it, from September until October 31st Halloween permeates every fabric of society.

Even television has taken advantage of this time. With so many channels on the air now, it was inevitable that they would use the time that they have to modify their schedules to a more creepy Halloween theme. Problem is, there is so much on during it’s hard to keep track. That’s where we come in. If you click ahead you will find a comprehensive list of every Halloween-themed show and movie that will be airing from 7:00 a.m. today to the wee hours of Saturday morning. Please use this in order to program not only your DVR but your day.
