is the Simpsons treehouse of horror a re-run tonight?

my DVR and tvguide.com both say that the simpsons TOH is a re-run tonight (Treehouse of Horror 15) - is this true? I can't believe they would do this.

Fox has been advertising that this year's new TOH episode will be next Sunday. They just ran the ad again a few minutes ago.

Even though the World Series is over, Fox probably feels it is in their best interests to hold the new THOH over until next week. THOH is one of the most popular Simpsons episodes and by running it next week, it falls during the November sweeps period when advertising rates are set.

It would be nice to play the halloween special on the day before halloween and not AFTER halloween. But maybe it's just me.

Exactly when was the last time that the new Treehouse of Horror actually played BEFORE Halloween? It must be like 10 years now.

They "can't" (in FOX's POV) air the new ToH episode tonight because a.) November sweeps starts Thursday and b.) they've been advertising next Sunday for it for the past month, so if they aired it tonight people wouldn't be expecting a new episode and wouldn't watch it. But the reason why it wasn't scheduled for today is because Game 7 of the World Series would have been today.

Last year's episode was actually funnier than I remembered it being on a second viewing. "I've got you under my skin" - heh.

This just confirms my theory that Fox is run by retarded evil poo flinging monkeys.

Exactly what I was thinking... it's really become an early November tradition.

Didn't Kang and Kodos even mention the Halloween special being on in November in last year's episode?
