The Fresno BeeSeptember 27, 2013 

Scary stuff: Ghosts, zombies and monsters come to life every week in October as Nickelodeon celebrates the spookiest month of the year with the premiere of "Deadtime Stories," a new half-hour series launching at 8 p.m. Thursday.

The single-camera show stars Jennifer Stone ("Wizards of Waverly Place") as "The Babysitter," who shares stories from her collection of creepy tales with children every week. "Deadtime Stories" is based on the popular children's book series that chronicles kids' eerie encounters, from hauntings to monsters to supernatural occurrences.

In the series premiere, "Invasion of the Appleheads," Katie and Andy attend their town's famous haunted hayride, where legend says locals were turned into zombies.

Back in step: Julianne Hough returns to "Dancing With the Stars," to guest judge for the first time alongside Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba at 8 p.m. Oct. 7.

Hough was a two-time professional champion on "Dancing With the Stars" before leaving to work on an acting career. She stars with Russell Brand and Octavia Spencer in Diablo Cody's upcoming "Paradise." She starred opposite Josh Duhamel in "Safe Haven" and her previous film credits include "Rock of Ages," "Footloose" and "Burlesque."

Order in the court: "Guy Court," a new half-hour, 10 episode series from the creator and producers of MTV's "Girl Code" and MTV2's "Guy Code," will premiere at 11 p.m. Nov. 6 on MTV2.

Viewers will witness a variety of cases in the courtroom series from a plaintiff claiming that their best friend dated their ex-girlfriend to a roommate who refuses to wear deodorant. All of the cases are real stories from real people who have fallen victim to violations of "Guy Code."
