Tales from the Crypt: What episode/season is this from?

I remember seeing this one as a kid, and I'd love to see it again. I'm just wanting to find out when it'll be on DVD, or if it's already there (The first 2 seasons are on DVD).

This is a rough outline of the plot, but I saw it when I was very young, so some details may seem different in my memory than how they actually were:

A news reporter takes a cameraman along with him inside of a house that was known to be haunted (possibly the site of dozens of murders). Through the episode, tons of creepy stuff happens to him inside the house. Outside the house is a female reporter/colleague of his, sitting at the newsvan, possibly watching a live feed of what they are filming in the house. At the end of the episode, the cameraman is killed by a ton of crazed ghosts/zombies, and the reporter tries to run from them, gets thrown out a window, and his body is hanging on a piece of wood (or something) that is up on the 2nd or 3rd floor of the house. The female reporter outside just stares up at his body in disbelief of what has just happened.

Sounds like the episode Television Terror from Season 2. Morton Downey Jr played the host of the show, too.

Yep, I think you're right. Thank you so much. I found this description of that episode online:

"Television Terror." Morton Downey Jr. steals the spotlight as Horton Rivers, a sleazy, sensationalistic talk show host who attempts to boost ratings by leading his camera crew into a supposedly haunted mansion. Legend has it that five years before, an old woman named Ada Ridder (Jeannie Epper) committed suicide after butchering twelve unsuspecting guests. Ignoring the grim warnings given by a paranormal psychic (Warren Burton), Horton takes his audience deeper and deeper into the bowels of the manor. But as pieces of furniture start to shake, angry spirits moan, and blood oozes out of the walls, it's clear that awaking the dead may not be a good idea for live T.V.
