QUICK TAKE

ABC'S PRIMETIME COMEDIES CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN OCTOBER 25 & 26

ABC's Tuesday and Wednesday night comedies celebrate the spookiest night of the year with Halloween-themed episodes TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25 and WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 26 on the ABC Television Network. There's a little something for everyone, from "Last Man" Tim Allen dressed as Hollywood icon John Wayne in "The Green Berets" to Elisha Cuthbert channeling movie goddess Marilyn Monroe on "Happy Endings." Guest stars include Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (horror icon Cassandra Peterson on "Last Man Standing") and Jay Mohr (as Dallas Royce's husband Steven on "Suburgatory.")

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25

"Last Man Standing" -- "Last Halloween Standing" (8:00-8:30 p.m., ET) -- Mike feels let down when his daughters aren't into celebrating Halloween with him the way they used to. He decides that his two-year-old grandson, Boyd, can be his perfect trick or treat partner. But Kristin, Boyd's mother, adamantly tells him that she doesn't want her son to go out on Halloween. Mike sneaks him out -- with a plan to get the child home before Kristin gets back from work. When Mike, dressed as John Wayne from "The Green Berets," gets to Ed's house with Boyd, they are greeted at the door by Ed's lady friend, Elvira (guest star Cassandra Peterson).
