Heroes - Season One on DVDThere are some pretty good TV marathons on today.

ABC Family checks out some of the scariest places and Cartoon Network will give you Goosebumps. For more, check out the TV Marathons list below.

Prime Pick

MLB World Series (FOX): Game 3. The Boston Red Sox up 2-0 in the series head into Coors Field to battle the Colorado Rockies. The Rocks need to find their way back to the win column, or this could be a short series. Broadcast starts at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Solid Selection

Saturday Night College Football (ABC): Ohio State (1) at Penn State (25). Broadcast begins at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Cable Choices

Emeril Live (Food Network): New. Emeril whips up some Halloween treats. Plays again later.

Torchwood (BBC America): New. A series of murders is being linked to Torchwood.

Trading Spaces (TLC): New. A master bedroom and living room are swapped. Plays again later.

Other Options

  • Bionic Woman (NBC): Repeat. “The Education of Jaime Sommers” episode from Wednesday replays.
  • Headless Horseman (Sci Fi): Premiere. Another Sci Fi Saturday Night Original Movie, this time seven teens on their way to a Halloween party get trapped in a small town and the Horseman is out to regain his head by them losing theirs. I watched the screener yesterday morning and well, it’s nothing to lose your head over. I thought it might be a fun little flick up until the opening credits finished, as it is all down hill from there. It is never a good sign when you find yourself rooting for the Horseman in a movie like this. Plays again later and then again next Thursday night.
  • The Next Iron Chef (Food Network): Repeat. “Part 3: Resourcefulness” replays. Replays again later.
