FOX is planning a series of Tuesday night Halloween-themed specials of comedies Raising Hope, Ben and Kate, New Girl and The Mindy Project.

The lineup beings Tuesday October 30th at 8.00 pm ET. Details follow.
RAISING HOPE (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) – “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Me What To Do”
It’s Halloween, and Sabrina (Shannon Woodward) asks Jimmy (Lucas Neff) to hang out with her gay best friend and his partner (guest stars Chris Eckert and Harvey Guillen). But first, Jimmy asks Burt (Garret Dillahunt) to do some recon by spending time at the local gay bar. When Burt keeps going back to the bar, Virginia (Martha Plimpton) wonders if he’s enjoying his time there a little too much and tracks him down in costume on Halloween night.

BEN AND KATE (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) – “Scaredy Kate”
Kate (Dakota Johnson) gets invited to her hot neighbor’s Halloween party, so BJ (Lucy Punch) tries to help Kate break free and be someone completely out of character for the night. Meanwhile, BJ’s plans to steal from one of Kate’s neighbors backfire when her conscience gets the best of her. Then, Ben (Nat Faxon) and Tommy (Echo Kellum) decide to stay home and hand out candy to the trick-or-treaters in hopes that they’ll meet some hot moms, but the night takes a turn when Tommy unknowingly eats some of BJ’s “candy” from Amsterdam, and Kate bonds with Will (guest star Geoff Stults), a single father.

NEW GIRL (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) – “Halloween”
Jess (Zooey Deschanel) gets a job as a zombie at a haunted house, but is more frightened of her changing feelings towards Sam (guest star David Walton). Then, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece (Hannah Simone) are – unfortunately – perfectly matched in the costumes they’re wearing, while Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Shelby (guest star Kali Hawk) are worlds apart in theirs. Also, Nick (Jake Johnson) gets a visit from a former college crush (guest star Maria Thayer) who shows her affection in a scary way.

THE MINDY PROJECT (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “Halloween”
When Josh (guest star Tommy Dewey) invites Mindy (Mindy Kaling) to a Halloween party, Mindy stresses out about finding the perfect costume to impress him. Meanwhile, Danny (Chris Messina) and Jeremy (Ed Weeks) leave work early to finally take their driver’s license tests, much to Danny’s embarrassment.
