It’s only Tuesday and there is no reason to look at the calendar as the weekend is so far away! However, the one big holiday that primetime shows is starting to celebrate is Halloween. In a previous column I mentioned all the amazing Halloween baking shows. While there are a plethora of baking shows still airing, the next Halloween roll out has started: Halloween themed storylines in drama and sitcom episodes. Let’s be real, art imitates life so it would be weird if this didn’t happen, but Hollywood loves to kick it up a notch. Expect to be repeatedly scared for the next two weeks. Plus, if you love being scared, the idea of watching a few classic horror movies from the comfort of your couch isn’t out the question either.
NCIS: New Orleans gets spooky
On Tuesday night the viewers of NCIS: New Orleans are treated to a ghost story like no other. Offering a look at a copycat murder, the team appears to have stumbled upon an unsolved case from 150 years ago. Not just any case, but one that spawned a legendary New Orleans ghost story. Keeping the flavor of the show alive and well, once again viewers will get to see the heart of New Orleans as the show solves a murder. As much as I love this show’s plots, seeing how the area’s cultures and traditions are infused into the show is equally as satisfying!
The WWE Smackdown live will be on USA Network. The episode will be packed with action and a few surprises. While I rarely offer any spoilers, there are a few reasons not to miss tonight’s show. Apparently there will be big talk from WWE Champion Jinder Mahal. The tease of the night is he will make some sort of Survivor Series announcement. Prior to kicking off the event, expect to see Sami Zayn share with the fans of WWE SmackDown first.
Dancing With the Stars Disney Night
On Monday night fans were treated to performances on DWTS with the fans favorite theme: Disney night. Over the seasons, this special event signified a unique aspect of the show and merged the magic of Disney with the best of the ballroom. It also offered up an unceremonial reminder of the halfway point of the competition.
As fans saw last night, those dancing shoes really need to bust a move to get good scores (and lots of votes). And even if the celebrity thinks they are safe, they might not be. Pretty Little Liars actress Sasha Pieterse was booted off the show, even though most fans thought she might make it to the top three. While surprising, reality is that DWTS always has a few twists and turns during the season. The DWTS elimination is a wakeup call for the rest of the stars as any one of them could be next!
