Our listing of Halloween TV Specials was first published in 2014 but updated annually for Jersey Family Fun readers.

 

With summer winding down on the way to Halloween, our favorite television stations are beginning to show their 2019 Halloween TV Specials. It’s Monstober on the Disney Channel and 31 Nights of Halloween is coming up on Freeform. PBS Kids presents Odd-Tober, and The Food Network and Cooking channels provide many ideas for yummy treats. Consider our listing of Halloween TV Specials as your official Halloween TV guide.

 

We are scouring the Internet to find the 2019 Halloween TV Specials so you can look HERE, in one place, each day and find a fun Halloween show. Please remember that all shows are subject to change, if we find any programming changes we will be sure to let you know.
