Chilling 21st Annual SIMPSONS "Treehouse of Horror" Featuring Guest Voices Hugh Laurie and Daniel Radcliffe Leads Night of Ghoulish "Animation Demon-ation" Tricks and Treats Sunday, November 7

This Halloween season, FOX scares up all-new eerie episodes of chilling comedies, including GLEE and a special one-hour RAISING HOPE on Tuesday, Oct. 26 and THE SIMPSONS, THE CLEVELAND SHOW, FAMILY GUY and AMERICAN DAD on Sunday, Nov. 7:

Tuesday, Oct. 26

GLEE (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) - "The Rocky Horror Glee Show"

Will (Matthew Morrison) decides to have the glee club perform "The Rocky Horror Show" for the annual school musical after learning of Emma's (Jayma Mays) newfound love for the cult classic. Despite Sue's (Jane Lynch) usual scheming, the members of New Directions inject their distinctive style to such timeless tracks as "The Time Warp" and "Damn It, Janet."

RAISING HOPE (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) - "Happy Halloween/Family Secrets" (One-Hour Episode)

When Sabrina's (Shannon Woodward) boyfriend can't make it to the deli guy's Halloween party, Jimmy (Lucas Neff) offers to put on his costume and go in his place. Virginia (Martha Plimpton) takes Maw Maw (Cloris Leachman), who is dressed as a cat, trick-or-treating while Burt (Garret Dillahunt) plots ways to play tricks on Jimmy. Meanwhile, when a box containing videos of Hope's mother arrives from prison, Jimmy must decide whether or not to let Hope see them. Virginia explains that children need to be protected from the truth, leading Jimmy to question what exactly his parents have been keeping from him.

Sunday, Nov. 7

THE SIMPSONS (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) - "Treehouse of Horror XXI"

Beware of ouija boards, vampires, and unexpected guests in the 21st annual installment of the "Treehouse of Horror." In "War and Pieces," the first of three spine-tingling tales, Marge (Julie Kavner), worried about the effects of excessively violent video games, encourages Bart (Nancy Cartwright) and Milhouse (Pamela Hayden) to give wholesome, classic board games a shot. The best friends discover that board games aren't boring after all when they find themselves playing a real-life game in which they must beat all the challenges before they are allowed to return to home. The supernatural spells continue in "Tweenlight," when Lisa (Yeardley Smith) becomes smitten with a mysterious new student, Edmund (guest voice Daniel Radcliffe), who also happens to be a vampire. When a romance blossoms, the young lovers run away to Dracula-la Land, leaving Homer (Dan Castellaneta) to come to Lisa's rescue. In the final frightening fable, "Master and Cadaver," Homer and Marge set sail on a romantic second honeymoon, but are interrupted when they rescue Roger (guest voice Hugh Laurie), a castaway who escaped an attempted poisoning on his ship. Convinced that Roger is sabotaging their getaway and plotting a murder of his own, Homer and Marge take matters into their own hands.

THE CLEVELAND SHOW (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) - "It's The Great Pancake, Cleveland Brown"

Cleveland (Mike Henry) crushes Cleveland Jr.'s (Kevin Michael Richardson) spirit when he forbids him from trick-or-treating because he thinks he is too old. Junior reinvents himself as a "cool kid" and is invited to attend a Halloween party with Roberta (Reagan Gomez). When he gets picked on and is unhappy with his new persona, Cleveland and the gang come to Junior's rescue and encourage his enthusiasm for the holiday.

FAMILY GUY (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) - "Halloween on Spooner Street"

Peter (Seth MacFarlane) and Joe (Patrick Warburton) team up to execute a series of painful and humiliating Halloween pranks on unsuspecting family, friends and neighbors. While Brian (MacFarlane) shows Stewie (MacFarlane) the ropes of trick-or-treating, Meg (Mila Kunis) sets out to attend her first high school Halloween party with high hopes for the evening.

AMERICAN DAD (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) - "Best Little Horror House in Langley Falls"

Stan (Seth MacFarlane) and Francine (Wendy Schaal) have had the scariest haunted house on the block for eight years running, but when one of their neighbors provides some stiff competition, Stan ups the ante with a "killer" set-up. Meanwhile, Steve (Scott Grimes) falls head over heels for his overprotective friend's younger sister and competes to win her heart in a Halloween showdown.
