Sunday TV Picks : ‘The Simpsons’ and ‘Revenge’
Tonight in Prime Time
This long-running animated sitcom always has fun with its annual Halloween-themed “Treehouse of Horror” episode. This year’s creepy tales feature one inspired by Dr. Seuss, one with Bart losing his head and a story of a traveling circus, “The Burnsum and Bailey Circus.” An added plus: the opening sequence (or “couch gag”) was directed by Guillermo del Toro (“Pacific Rim”). D’oh! 8 p.m. Sunday on Fox (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
