HIGHLIGHTS

"Glee" (Fox at 8) celebrates Halloween by going all out with a "Rocky Horror Picture Show" tribute, mostly because Will still has a crush on Emma, and he finds out that she loves the cult classic movie.

If you've ever wondered about the year's spookiest day beyond the costumes and candy, "The Real Story of Halloween" (History at 8) looks at the true origins of the Oct. 31 holiday.

The country's most famous JetBlue flight attendant, Steven Slater, appears on "Larry King Live" (CNN at 9) to discuss his emergency-slide exit from an airplane this summer.

Still reeling from the announcement that there's a third candidate in the state's attorney's race, Peter and Eli scramble to learn all they can about Wendy on "The Good Wife" (CBS at 10); meanwhile, Alicia and the partners enter risky legal territory when a massage therapist accuses a Nobel Peace Prize winner of sexual assault.

New reality series "Dance Cam Slam" (VH1 at 10) kicks off, as people groove to various pop songs via home video cam, in hopes to win the highest score from the judges and a $5,000 prize.
