This year, ABC Family’s Melissa & Joey’s Halloween episode (Tonight, 8/7C) is doing a bit of a time warp and getting all Sabrina The Teenage Witch – right down to guest starring Beth Broderick, who played Sabrina’s Aunt Zelda on the show.
Late last week, Melissa Joan Hart, who directed the special, sat down to talk with a group of fans and bloggers about the episode.

Being a Halloween special, it wouldn’t be right to just chat with he current cast, so there will be a Dearly Departed segment featuring interviews with some of A’s victims – Bianca Lawson, Ryan Merriman and Bryce Johnson.
Pretty Little Liars airs Tuesday, October 21st (8/7C). Follow the jump for details.

Here’s a promo for this week’s episode of Chasing Life. I think when the show returns, after it’s summer break, I’m going to have to start recapping it when part 2 launches in the winter. It’s quickly become one of the few shows of the summer that I really look forward to every week.
This week, various secrets come out and we start to see some of the fallout as April prepares for her first Chemo treatment. Up until now the show has remained surprisingly light considering its serious topic, but I suspect things will go dark when it comes back. Two more episodes until it goes away until the winter. Have I said recently how much I HATE how ABC Family’s schedules shows? Chasing Life airs Tuesday nights on ABC Family.
I was addicted to Switched At Birth for the first three seasons, but got out of the habit due to ABC Family’s god awful scheduling and penchant for pulling shows off the air for months at a time.
My new obsessions are The Fosters – a great little show with heart and their Tuesday night cancer drama Chasing Life. I was a little skeptical about getting involved with ABC Family again since they rip out my heart EVERY SINGLE TIME by not giving shows a chance to grow. I’m hoping they stick with The Fosters and Chasing Life but I seriously doubt they will. I refuse to go down the Pretty Little Liars circle jerk rabbit hole.
