Sept 29 will have with back-to-back episodes beginning at 8 p.m. and  moves to the regular 9:00 p.m. time slot beginning Sunday, October 20

The Travel Channel is one of the better networks for Halloween programming in my opinion. In addition to the return of "Making Monsters" this season:

Premieres Sunday, September 29 at 10:00 p.m. ET
"It's a heart-stopping spin through North America's scariest Halloween-themed coaster parks. America's beloved amusement parks by day transform into fright zones after dark, delivering the highest-octane Halloween thrills for adrenaline junkies. Whether it's high-speed launches and stomach-lurching cobra rolls, or haunted graveyards and zombie assaults, each attraction featured in this one-hour special promises you the ride of your life!" Produced by High Noon Entertainment with Travel Channel's Sean McKnight as Executive Producer.

Premieres Sunday, October 13 at 10:00 p.m. ET
"This one-hour special features the most terrifying, extreme and absolute best of what Halloween has to offer. From America's scariest, no-holds-barred haunted house in San Diego and a hair-raising coffin race in Colorado, to the ultimate custom body painting studio in Las Vegas and British Columbia's pumpkin drop celebration, each destination is more frightening and fun than the last!" Produced by High Noon Entertainment with Travel Channel's Sean McKnight as Executive Producer.

There are also some regular programming Halloween specials but the one that caught my personal interest premiers Sunday, October 20 at 8:00 p.m. ET

In this one-hour Halloween special, toy hunter and collectibles expert Jordan Hembrough is on the hunt for some of the scariest toys to sell at the Midwest's Horror Hound convention. Meanwhile, Hembrough's toy buddy Mark needs help with a special client - Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett, who's looking for extremely vintage, scary toys. In between scoring Ghostbusters memorabilia in Connecticut and a 1972 Parker Brothers Ouija board in Salem, MA, Hembrough scours for the perfect and rarest monster memorabilia for Hammett. When he locates just the right item, he not only makes Hammett a very happy customer, but gains a new rock star client for himself. Produced by Sharp Entertainment with Travel Channel's Daniel A. Schwartz as Executive Producer.

Adding all these to my "Halloween TV Stuff I Wanna' Watch List" for sure!
