    Are you looking forward to seeing the latest Treehouse of Horror tonight on FOX? You'll have to wait, it's been postponed until Nov. 1.

    No big surprise on the Fox network - Hallowe'en always takes place the Sunday following Oct 31. Either that for the Sunday before Oct 1.

    It was always their practice to delay this until after baseball.

    I should mention my Roamio says it recorded the episode, along with "Bob's Burgers" (I was manually recording for some reason) and "Family Guy". In every case it was baseball.

    you really should do a force update when there are changes and not rely on the "once a day" update (since you seem to post about these "last minute changes" a lot). My Roamio did not have the baseball game in there until I did a force update around noon central time.

    I think this is the only show that I have consistently watched for 31 years. Well, actually longer as, before this show, they had short pieces on Tracey Ullman's show on HBO back in the day which I also watched.

    I'll be ok waiting for the annual THofH episode.

    I just think it's amazing how long this show has lasted. I know there are other shows that have been around even longer, but this is the only one I've watched all these years, without interruption.

    In recent years, it would air on the next-to-last Sunday in October, with World Series Game 5 scheduled for the following Sunday (as it is this year). The last time a Treehouse of Horror episode premiered in November was in 2010, when Fox would show multiple rounds of the baseball playoffs on a regular basis. Before this year, the last time Fox aired a non-World Series baseball game on a Sunday night was in 2013.

    I sure hope they fix the guide data when they really air, since my TiVo too said it recorded a bunch of eps.

    That's what I have, too. The Bob's Burgers episode for that date also appears to be a Halloween episode, FWIW.

    Same here, but at first it was the episode that would have aired if Treehouse XXXI was already shown as planned. Same for the rest of the animation lineup. I have FIOS, which also did not record the episodes when it was originally scheduled because the guide data was updated for the ballgame.

    I dread this every year and I hate baseball. Still have last year's on Series 2.

    I posted that my listings are correct and it still says they will record.

    Just a heads up the NFL game just got over....but FOX will probably due a quick postgame....so may want to pad programming ;)

    Looks like it will be about 6 minutes late
