Default Anyone Else Notice There Is Like Zero Halloween Programming This Year???

Is it Halloween? If so, I sure couldn't tell by looking at the TV listing over the weekend and on Monday.....

The programming that is on sucks to put it bluntly.....

They didn't even have the shrek halloween special on any of the networks this year, infact, I think there was absolutely no recognition of Halloween by any of the networks this year.

AMC has the micheal myers movies on as usual, but even it's programming seems to be lacking. CHILLER isn't much better.

Comedy Central usualy has "Scary Movie" on don't they? Unless it was on last night I dont think they had that this year either!

What's going on? Anyone else notice this? Is there some kind of boycott I don't know about?

Charlie Brown Great Pumpkin was on last week. There was also a Scary Movie marathon on last week. You already mentioned the Halloween marathon on AMC. Tonight is Simpson's Treehouse of Terror. ABC Family usually has their week of Halloween programming. I usually do my Halloween viewing on Netflix by watching a ton of B movie horror movies leading up to and on Halloween.

Some of the cable channels have been running zombie/scary movie marathons. SyFy, some others.

I agree with the OP. I'm a HUGE Halloween fan and really look forward to all the programs leading up to & on Halloween and althoughbthere are a few shows/movies, it's nothing compared to how it usually is. I was just noticing it all this week. I love History Channel, NCG, & A&E, those networks usually run alot of stuff about the holiday, the true story behind The Exorcist, stuff like that. Plus, you can usually find alot of horror movies besides just Halloween. Not this year at all. Oh well, it's hard to get into any seasons where I live anyway, I've never seen a leaf change color, much less seen leaves fall off.

With all the channels we have with Direct TV we have just the opposite problem from the OP...
All we are finding is scary movies, or movies about witches etc.
Hocus Pocus was on last night, Hallmark channel has been running an endless loop of The Good Witch,etc,etc.
Big Bang Theory had halloween theme on Thursday's new episode.
And some of the really creepy horror shows are on as well.
I'll be so glad when this month is over...I'm not interested in the evil crap thats out there.

Halloween falls within November sweeps this year. The networks won't bump regular Monday night programming for the Great Pumpkin.

Really? Clue me in because I'm on Direct and can't find squat! Granted, there are alot of dumb ones on but none of the really good one's. Maybe I'm just too picky idk.

There have been and are going to be lots of Halloween type movies on where I am. Every night. Also "The Simpsons" have been showing reruns of their "Tree House of Horror Series."
