Fright Fest! Which Halloween-Inspired TV Shows Should You Watch Tonight?

Whether you're ready for a fright night or need to scare up some laughs, take a look at today's Halloween TV programming

If you're staying in tonight to hand out candy -- and lots of little princesses, superheroes and Lady Gagas hope that you will -- you might as well treat yourself to some Halloween-themed TV. Among the "spooky" offerings on television tonight, you can watch a cappella groups sing in a cemetery, see Katie Holmes dress up like a slutty pumpkin, or get up to speed on the new series, American Horror Story. Here are your scary selections:

How I Met Your Mother (8 p.m. ET, on CBS): Ted (Josh Radnor) is reunited with the Slutty Pumpkin (Holmes) he's been pining for since Halloween 2001.

Mike & Molly (9:30 p.m. ET, on CBS): The beloved duo (Billy Gardell and Melissa McCarthy) channel Frankenstein and his bride.

Hawaii Five-O
(10 p.m. ET, on CBS):
The crew investigates claims of restless spirits at an ancient burial ground.

The Sing-Off (8 p.m. ET, on NBC): Following a Halloween-themed opening number, the singing groups will perform on a set made to look like a cemetery. Dying to find out if Nick Lachey will rock yet another costume today? We'll have to tune in!

American Horror Story (10 p.m. ET, on FX): The network is rerunning the first four episodes of this creepy thriller about a family who moves into a haunted mansion.
