Top TV Stations for your #blogtoberfest Viewing

10. The Travel Channel, which takes on this particular season with shows like Halloween Crazy and the even more creatively titled Halloween Crazier.

9. FX, for the premier of American Horror Story: Freakshow on Oct. 8, and maybe the network’s new show, The Strain.

8. Lifetime… If you really, really like Hocus Pocus.

7. Fox, specifically on October 19, for the 25th installment of The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror.


6. Turner Classic Movies, the only place to find 1959’s The Mummy and Roman Polanski’s Repulsion before 3 a.m.

5. Disney Channel, kicking off Monstober on Oct. 2. Oddly, formerly known as Wiztober. Monstober is better.

4. ABC Family, offering up 13 nights of kid-friendly programming including some old Gen X favorites like The Nightmare Before Christmas and Beetlejuice.

3. The Food Network, home of Halloween Wars, where contestants whip up giant undead zombies made out of Rice Krispie treats and stuff. TFN also has great Halloween content at their website.


2. SyFy, coming up close on AMC with a few more tricks in their bag: there are 31 Days of Halloween instead of 15, and a nifty Ghost Hunters reunion this year.


1. AMC, the stand-by. FearFest has been going strong for more than a decade and is the go-to channel for all things Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees. This year AMC is also hosting a Stephen King marathon and a ‘Chucky-thon.’

Excellent Halloween movie listings here and here.
