NBC Unveils Halloween and November Sweeps


There will be a new and original animation based on 'Shrek', a 'Glee'-ful episode of 'The Office' and a special of 'The Biggest Loser' in the coming weeks.

In an October 26 press release, NBC announced its November sweeps which would start with the Halloween celebration this week. This Thursday, October 28, the Peacock will kick it off with a new animated DreamWorks special called "Scared Shrekless" which is inspired by the studio's popular movie series "Shrek".

"Scared Shrekless" would air starting 8/7c, pushing "Community" to the next half-hour slot. "30 Rock" skips the Halloween fiesta but "Community", "The Office" and "Outsourced" would pick up a Halloween-theme episode. "Office" in particular would see the Dunder Mifflin employees gathering for "Glee" viewing party.

On October 30 at 8.30/7.30c, there will be another new special called "Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space" which is none other than a franchise of another DreamWorks Animation blockbuster "Monsters vs. Aliens".

Coming November, there's NBC News special "Matt Lauer Reports" where Matt Lauer sits down with President George W. Bush on Monday, November 8 at 8/7c. President Bush will talk to Lauer about the details of his upcoming book, "Decision Points", to be released by Crown Publishers on November 9, and he will discuss the defining decisions he has made in his personal and political life.

"The Biggest Loser" competition begins to draw to a climax and viewers will get a chance to catch up with their favorite contestants from the past nine seasons with "The Biggest Loser: Where Are They Now?" special airing Wednesday, November 24 at 9/8c. On the same day, all-new DreamWorks Animation special "The Kung Fu Panda Holiday Special" will air preceded by the encore broadcast of "Merry Madagascar" at 8/7c.

On top of the Halloween and November specials, NBC has also revealed the guests who would visit most of its regular shows. The list which include Hilary Duff, Kim Kardashian, Timothy Olyphant, Lady Antebellum can be seen at NBC.com.
