Prime Choices Oct. 18 - 14


"The Simpsons"

presents the 20th edition of its annual Halloween-themed extravaganza "Treehouse of Horror," which features the family battling zombies -- yet again -- as well as Homer, Marge and Moe in a sendup of the Stephen Sondheim murder-musical "Sweeney Todd." (Fox, 8 p.m.)


For decades a nexus of manufacturing, the labor movement and the immigrant experience, New York City's Garment District (above) has been rapidly declining as more and more of the clothes we wear are produced overseas. The documentary "Schmatta: Rags to Riches to Rags" tells the story. (HBO, 9 p.m.)


Speaking of industries that have seen better days: The documentary series "Independent Lens" presents "Butte, America," a look at the Montana town that was once the world's largest producer of copper. (KCET, 10 p.m.)


Showtime goes ballistic with the new reality series "Lock 'n Load." From cops and kids to hunters and collectors, find out who's packing heat -- and why -- when you meet Colorado gun-store owner Josh T. Ryan (below) and his varied clientele. (Showtime, 8 p.m.)


The downside of being a ventriloquist is that you spend all your time working with dummies. The upside is that you just might get your own TV show, like "The Jeff Dunham Show," featuring the comic and his coterie of wisecracking puppets. (Comedy Central, 9 p.m.)


Crime doesn't pay . . . unless it does. In the new series "White Collar," a charming con artist (Matt Bomer) is buddied up with the FBI agent (Tim DeKay) who caught him to help the feds apprehend even more nefarious felons. Tiffani Thiessen also stars. (USA, 10 p.m.)


"24's" Rena Sofer (above) stars as a career woman who rekindles her relationship with a former high-school flame at their 20th class reunion in the new made-for-cable movie "Always and Forever." Barbara Eden and Max Gail also star. (Hallmark, 9 p.m.)
