Staying in tonight? Here are some options for what to watch.

The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8pm EST) – It’s a repeat from January but it’s one where the dudes go on a road trip in costume.

Saturday Night Live Halloween (NBC, 8pm EST) – This special will be a compilation of some of your favorite Halloween sketches over the years. Spooky, scary. It should be pretty awesome.

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (ABC, 8pm EST) – Everyone’s favorite classic with a bonus animated short called, “You’re Not Elected, Charlie Brown.” That doesn’t sound like too much of a bummer.

Elsewhere at 8pm EST, 28 Days Later is on BBC America, FX has Paranormal Activity 2, The Lost Boys is on VH1 and Ovation is airing The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

At 9pm EST, The Crazy Ones, Sean Saves the World and Grey’s Anatomy are all new.

Things to Watch on Netflix Instant Right Now

It’s almost Halloween so maybe you’re in the mood for a creepy, spooky, scary marathon. Here are some movies streaming right now on Netflix:

Cabin in the Woods – If you haven’t seen it, now’s the time. If you have seen it, now’s the time to watch it again.

Resident Evil – I’m talking the first one with the red dress, zombie dogs and lasers that slice and dice.

The Nightmare Before Christmas – What’s this? It’s streaming? Why, yes. Yes, it is.

Ghostbusters – The classics still hold true, which is part of the reason I lost $10 on a Ghostbusters slot machine this weekend.

Carrie – The original. The reason none of us misfit toys trusts when popular kids say we’ve won something.

Paranorman – I haven’t seen it yet but I’ve heard great things. If you haven’t seen it yet either, maybe it’s time to try something new this Halloween.

The Faculty – Definitely one of my all time favorites. Watch it again and remember the days when Jon Stewart was in movies. I still say he’s a good actor, even if he doesn’t think so.

Check out your Halloween recommendations on Netflix for more options, including Evil Dead, the Scream movies, Psycho, Slither, The Crow, Hellboy and much more.
