Nick At Nite Haunts Viewers With Bone-Rattling Laughter on Halloween

All New Episode of Hi-Jinks Premieres at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT Network Also Showcases Memorable Hi-Jinks and Halloween-themed Roseanne Episodes

NEW YORK, Oct. 19 -- It's comic mayhem, scary pranks and family fun when Nick at Nite celebrates Halloween on Tuesday, October 31, from 9 p.m. - 1 a.m. (all times ET/PT). "Tricks@Nite" features an all-new episode of the network's popular hidden camera series -- Hi-Jinks -- as well as a showcase of Hi-Jinks' previous episodes and a Roseanne marathon filled with spooks and laughs.

The night starts off with an explosive episode of Hi-Jinks featuring special guest Ted McGinley. Next up is the premiere of the "Hi-Jinks Halloween Special" filled with scarecrows, Big Foot and scary surprises. At 11 p.m. viewers can join Roseanne and the unconventional Conner family as they return for their traditional haunting and classic Halloween episodes.

The "Tricks@Nite" Halloween schedule is as follows (all times listed are ET/PT):

9 p.m. Hi-Jinks #014 - Ted McGinley Hi-Jinks delivers its' most explosive prank yet with the help of Ted McGinley and a Civil War cannon. Also, kids are surprised by spiders, a defective waterbed, money that literally grows on trees, and a crazy copy machine that serves up pizza!

9:30 p.m. Hi-Jinks #20 - Halloween Special (Premiere) This special episode of Hi-Jinks is hosted by Leila Sbitani while roaming in spooky places in the dead of night on Halloween eve. Some of the chilling segments include: a spider that drops from the ceiling onto unsuspecting marks at a waiting room, a house for sale that's haunted, kids letting out blood-curling screams in a fake movie audition and a thousand-year-old mummy that comes to life.

10 p.m. Hi-Jinks #17 - Corbin Bernsen The legend of Big Foot comes to life, and it's up to Corbin Bernsen (L.A. Law) and some other dads to capture the beast ... if he's really real. Also, strange things show up in a father's x-ray, kids have to finish a timed exam where the clock is rigged to go very fast, a crazy clown returns, and a house for sale appears to be haunted.

10:30 p.m. Hi-Jinks #12 - Tony Hawk/Darlene Westgor Video game guru and extreme sports star Tony Hawk surprises his kids -- and his fans -- when he test drives a vintage World War II tank and goes on a comical urban rampage. In addition to other pranks, a hot dog cart goes on a wild joy ride with Nick at Nite's first Funniest Mom winner, Darlene Westgor, at the helm of the runaway cart.

11 p.m. Roseanne #30 - Boo! Dan and Roseanne square off in a showdown of homemade horror, with Darlene also joining in on the act. It turns into a contest for the whole family to see who can create the scariest, most frightful costume and pull off the ultimate Halloween prank. At the Conner "Castle of Horror" no one's safe from the terror and madness that fills the house.

11:30 p.m. Roseanne #54 - Trick or Treat It's Halloween, and Roseanne is going to a costume party at the Lobo Lounge. When she shows up dressed as a bearded lumberjack, she is totally convincing and decides to keep up the charade.

12 a.m. Roseanne #78 - Trick Me Up, Tie Me Down It's Dan and Roseanne's favorite holiday, Halloween, and they get in the spirit by scaring their obnoxious neighbor, Kathy, with a gruesome trick. Later, Kathy and her husband unexpectedly show up at Dan's annual Halloween party at the lodge, and Roseanne is sure Kathy has come to seek revenge on the Conners.

12:30 a.m. Roseanne #104 - Halloween IV Having lost her Halloween spirit, Roseanne sends everyone to a party while she stays home -- and is visited by the ghosts of Halloween past, present, and future.
