NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD
Time: 8 – 10:30PM
Reasons to watch: In honor of Halloween, AMC is airing back-to-back showings of George A. Romero’s classic. Which is an odd choice. Wouldn’t you think they’d play Halloween like they do 7,000 times a day all year-round?

Time: 11PM – 1:30AM
Reasons to watch: Broken Lizard
‘s uneven horror spoof is kind of a good time. I understand why it didn’t connect with most audiences but it definitely deserves a watch. It has some solid comedy, ingenious splatter scenes, and boobs. And I’m not just referring to Kevin Heffernan’s juicy chest.
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 1st, 2009
Time: 9 – 10PM
Reasons to watch:
Having learned the identity of the Trinity Killer Dexter
moves in closer for the kill. But finds a mentor of sorts in Trinity, who gives him some romantic advice. And who better to listen to when it comes to chicks? After all he has mastered the art of unhooking the bra with his right hand while the left severs his date’s femoral artery.
10 – 11PM
Reasons to watch: Pete has to make a decision regarding his career path. Should he stay at Sterling Cooper or jump over to Duck’s Agency. Or should he be a pint-sized model. Decisions, decisions.
