5 Shows After Dark: There's a Whole Lot of Scary Happening Here, Seems Like
How I Met Your Mother on CBS at 8:00pm ET.
Scare Tactics on SyFy at 8:00pm ET. Fifth season fall premiere. Anyone hear if this is getting cancelled? I only ask because SyFy is airing a straight six episodes tonight, and the last one is listed as being the “Fifth season finale” and burning off half a season’s worth of episodes in one night doesn’t seem like the kind of thing you do with a show that’s successful. Maybe it’s special for Halloween?
Monday Night Football: Seattle Seahawks vs. St.Louis Rams on ESPN at 8:40pm ET.
Hostages on CBS at 10:00pm ET.
Castle on ABC at 10:01pm ET. I realize I’m late on this, but I always love it when shows with one or two central characters try to wring tension out of plot lines that involve putting that one character in mortal danger when there’s been no announcement the series will be ending and it’s mid-season. Castle happens to have done this recently, as did Scandal, and it baffles me every time. “Oh god, my favorite show is totally going to kill off the main character! What will I do?” said no one ever.
