‘Scream Queens’

For its second season, Ryan Murphy’s other horror show has switched locations (a hospital instead of a college campus), and most of the original cast is back … for now. Yes, this show can be creepy, but it can also be very funny. Tops among the mirthmakers are Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, John Stamos, Taylor Lautner and Lea Michele. Tonight the gang plans a Halloween party. 9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, on Fox.
