Press Release from FOX
Halloween comes a night early this year when FOX airs frightfully funny all-new episodes of THE SIMPSONS (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), FAMILY GUY (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) and THE CLEVELAND SHOW (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on Sunday, Oct. 30. Also, don’t miss the series premiere of ALLEN GREGORY (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT), the latest addition to Sunday’s Animation Domination comedy block.
THE SIMPSONS (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) – “Treehouse of Horror XXII” In the spooky opener of the 22nd annual installment of “Treehouse of Horror,” Homer takes a dangerous dive into an isolated canyon on Candy Peak, but when a crashing boulder traps his arm, he channels Aron Ralston (guest voicing as himself) to save himself. In “The Diving Bell and Butterball,” the first of three hair-raising Halloween tales, a venomous spider bite leaves Homer paralyzed, but when Lisa discovers Homer’s ability to communicate through natural gases, he is able to express his love for Marge. The killer spells continue in “Dial D for Diddly,” when Ned Flanders, devout preacher by day, transforms into a cold-blooded vigilante by night. In the final terrifying tale, “In the Na’Vi,” Bart and Milhouse are assigned on a mission to access a sacred extract on a distant planet. They morph into the land’s indigenous one-eyed avatars, but when Bart finds love and an eternal mate abroad, he is caught in planet warfare.
ALLEN GREGORY – (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) – “Pilot”Since his family has fallen on hard times, Allen Gregory De Longpre (the voice of Jonah Hill), one of the most pretentious 7-year olds of our time, is forced to face his greatest challenge -- attending elementary school. His mature ways make it hard for him to fit in and his struggle to adjust is not limited to his classmates. As Allen Gregory makes his rounds with the faculty, his first meeting with his much-older principal takes a special turn.
FAMILY GUY – (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) – “Screams of Silence: The Story of Brenda Q”Quagmire lands in the hospital and his sister, Brenda, and her boyfriend, Jeff, rush to Quahog to nurse him back to health. As Glenn recovers he quickly realizes that Brenda is the one who needs help.
THE CLEVELAND SHOW – (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) “A Nightmare on Grace Street”When Cleveland and Rallo both have to come home early after getting scared while at their respective slumber parties, Donna makes them spend the night in a haunted house to prove how brave they both are. Elsewhere, Cleveland’s new friend is on a murderous revenge rampage after being rejected by Cleveland and his other friends. Meanwhile, Roberta is stuck in a love triangle between a vampire and a werewolf. Also Rallo, Cleveland, Jr., and the entire Brown-Tubbs family perform a cover version of The Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling.”
