'Conan' Prop Master Bill Tull Offers Some Budget-Friendly Halloween Costume Ideas

Fancy Halloween costumes can be a drain on the wallet, but during last night's Conan, prop master Bill Tull made another appearance and offered up some costume ideas that are more potentially offensive, dangerous, and/or deadly than they are expensive.

Watch Tim & Eric's Haunted Adult Swim Promo

The first episode of Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories is their Halloween special, airing on October 31 at midnight on Adult Swim. To promote the 30-minute special, which stars Zach Galifianakis, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim made this spooooky haunted house promo.

'Community' Has Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Episodes Coming Your Way This Spring

Community's return to NBC in February, four months later than the cast and crew had planned when making the first several episodes, will be causing some holiday-themed episodes to air long after we non-TV people celebrate said holidays. Joel McHale told Jimmy Kimmel last month that Community's "Halloween episode is gonna be awesome in February," but TV Guide reports that the show also has Thanksgiving and Christmas episodes in the can that'll also be airing way late. Still, at least the show is coming back and we get to see these episodes eventually, and it'll be fun and silly to see the Community gang decked out for [...]

Left Handed Radio: Sequel Machine – '9thmare on Elm Street'

Every month, The Sequel Machine recruits 25 writers to write the sequels for film's biggest franchises one page at a time. The catch is, the writers only get to read the page before theirs in a round-robin, exquisite corpse style. The end result is a hilarious, twisted, and as coherent as any misquided Hollywood sequel. This month: 9thmare on Elm Street.

Performed by: Adam Bozarth, Dan Chamberlain, Matt Little, Anna Rubanova, Brett White, Jeremy Bent, Kathy Salerno, Nicole Byer, and Laura Willcox

See the next Sequel Machine show live: Harry Potter 9 3/4. UCB Theatre East, 3rd Street & Avenue A. Thursday, November 1st, 11:00 PM

Joel McHale Says 'Community's Halloween Episode Will Be Awesome in February

Joel McHale was on Jimmy Kimmel last night in an appearance that he booked before Community's sudden hiatus was announced, but he showed up anyway to discuss the little vacation from NBC's schedule the show is taking. Like the timing of this TV appearance, McHale explains that the Community delay is messing up a lot of things planned for the new season, like an original sketch the cast made together that they'll still be tweeting out simultaneously this Friday, and the show's Halloween episode, which Joel McHale promises will be "awesome in February." We're looking forward to Community hopefully taking on Thanksgiving, Taken 2, and Mitt Romney's "binders full of women" comment next [...]

Metta World Peace Joins 'Key & Peele' for a Mind-Bending Halloween Special

Key & Peele's Halloween episode airs tomorrow night on Comedy Central, and in this Twilight Zone-esque preview, NBA star Metta World Peace delivers some trippy ideas from his Metta World News desk.

Kristen Schaal Taught Jon Stewart All About Sexy Halloween Costumes

The Daily Show's long absent and much missed Women's Correspondent Kristen Schaal stopped by the show last night to talk about Halloween costumes. And things get pretty sexy.

The Complete Guide to Everything: Hurricane Sandy Aftermath

It's been a week since our episode recorded right before Hurricane Sandy hit New York City. The good news is that this week we were able to be in the same physical space to record! The bad news is that Hurricane Sandy devastated our city. We discuss our own personal experiences during the storm (spoiler alert: neither of us were affected much more than mildly inconvenienced), the 24 hours news cycle making everyone think everything is over-hyped and Tim almost gets punched in the face while waiting in a long line for gasoline. Also Tom visits the Brooklyn Botanical Garden for the first time and discovers it's just full [...]

This 'Community' Halloween Game Will Hold You Over Until 'Community's Halloween Episode in February

Community's Halloween episodes are always something to look forward to, but as Joel McHale said last week, the hiatus means this year's Halloween installment probably won't be airing until February. Well, that's where this new, interactive, Halloween-themed Community game comes in. You can check out the game, "The Community Horror Picture Show," over at NBC's website. It's a "Choose Your Own Adventure" deal where you can guide yourself through Community's past Halloween episodes, and it's nowhere near as satisfying as that video the cast released last week or a new episode (from what I can remember those were like).

'Bob's Burgers' Takes On 'The Warriors' With the Trailer for Its Halloween Episode

Bob's Burgers's first-ever Halloween installment is airing this Sunday, and the show's creative team cut an in-house trailer  that's an homage to The Warriors. The episode involves the Belcher kids going trick-or-treating unsupervised in search of full-sized candy bars, but they get caught up in the local teenagers' tradition "Hell Hunt." The trailer alone is already a million times scarier than the entirety of The Warriors is.

Billy Eichner and Rachel Dratch Confronted Their Worst Pop Culture Fears

With Halloween on the horizon, Rachel Dratch joined Billy on the Street's Billy Eichner for an adventure through a classic New York haunted house. It was scarier than they could have ever imagined.

Watch NBC Try to Justify Airing 'Community's Halloween Episode in February with a Cheesy Promo

You've probably heard how NBC pushed Community's premiere back from October to February, meaning that the show's Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas episodes will all air this winter/spring. If not, NBC just released this tacky promo trying to explain away that inconsistency by relying heavily on the cringe-inducing portmanteau "Valloween." Hopefully, this is is the last of these, and we won't have to watch promos for Thankspatricks Day and Easterchristmas.

Tom Hanks and Matt Damon Celebrate Halloween with Stephen Colbert

Living legend Tom Hanks made an appearance on The Colbert Report last night to share some Halloween tips and not to plug his latest movie, Cloud Atlas. Here he is with some fun costume suggestions for trick-or-treaters, which just happen to all be characters from his movies. It's a complete coincidence, as is the appearance of Matt Damon in his Saving Private Ryan costume because A-list movie stars always go door-to-door for candy on Halloween, dressed up as their past roles. It has nothing with Hanks trying to get to get people to see Cloud Atlas by showing off how many good movies he's been in, that's for sure.
