The annual airing of this 1966 animated half-hour seems like the perfect antidote to all the big scares on TV this week. All your favorite moments are here: Snoopy versus the Red Baron, the joys of trick-or-treating (“I got a rock”), Charlie Brown versus Lucy and the football, and Linus and Sally waiting in the pumpkin patch for that Big Orange Guy. Followed by another Peanuts special, “You’re Not Elected, Charlie Brown.” 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29, on ABC

How nice to have this comedy back for a second season. It continues to be one of the funniest, well-written shows on the air. Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross are standouts as the father and mother of a family coping with cultural identity, assimilation and modern life. Laurence Fishburne co-stars. 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21, on ABC.
Rachel Bloom shines in this new comedy (with music!) as New York lawyer Rebecca Bunch, who moves to California to pursue a long-lost boyfriend. It may not be for everyone, but I was hooked from the opening number of last week’s episode, with Bunch on top of a giant pretzel. 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 19, on The CW.
It’s not the annual “Treehouse of Horror” episode (that comes next week), but tonight’s episode of the long-running animated comedy looks at what happens when Lisa gets scared at the “Krustyland Halloween Horror Night” and Halloween pop-up store employees seek vengeance on Homer. D’oh! 8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 18, on Fox.
