"This year, Halloween falls on the scariest night ever," Fox's Animation Domination promo announces. "Sunday, October 7th!" Yes, it appears Fox has rescheduled Halloween, at least for the purposes of their scary-funny line-up of animated shows lined up for this Sunday night. That includes the annual Simpsons "Treehouse of Horror" installment.
Here's the promo Fox released advertising the Halloween-themed episodes set to air this Sunday night.
What do Fox fans have to look forward to? Mayan Simpsons, J.J. Abrams and Nielsen ratings for the Griffins, full bars for the belchers and a killer vacation for the Smiths!
It all starts at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday with The Cleveland Show's "Escape from Goochland." Here's Fox's description for the episode:
Some girls like to use Halloween as an opportunity to dress a bit more risqué than they might on any other night. Roberta's costume gets right to the point…
On the next page, we have information for The Simpsons' "Treehouse of Horror" episode, including a promo and the excellent poster for hte episode. Next up, we have The Simpsons with "Treehouse of Horror XXIII" at 8:00 p.m. From the episode description, it sounds like the series is making the most of it being 2012 with a Mayan-themed story.
The promo for the episode features the return of Kang and Kodos!
And here's a promotional photo...
Quite a few Homers there and even more in the poster...
Not to be left out, Bob's Burgers' "Full Bars" airs after The Simpsons, at 8:30 p.m. It sounds like the Belcher kids are embarking on the age-old tradition of veering off the usual trick 'or treat path in search of the houses that give away the best candy!
Here's the promo for the episode, which shows the kids celebrating "full bars!" which has a whole different meaning for kids more concerned with candy than they are with cell phone reception…
The premise and this promo make me think this episode has the potential to be especially meta (if not particularly Halloween themed).
And last on the list is American Dad, which has the Smith family set for a "Killer Vacation."
The preview for "Killer Vacation" has Rachael MacFarlane (Hayley Smith) talking about the set-up for the episode's story, which includes Hayley and Jeff trying to spice up their marriage…
Also not particularly Halloween-ish, but it still looks like fun.
