SATURDAY

"The Heart of Hollywood: Chicago in LA" (6 p.m., WMAQ-Channel 5): Chicago's Brenda Sexton produced this special about Chicago talent gone west, featuring Harold Ramis, Bonnie Hunt, Joe Mantegna, Jeremy Pivena and more. The Sun-Times's Bill Zwecker and Richard Roeper also make appearances.

"Ghost Hunters Halloween Live" (6 p.m., SyFy): Get your ghoul on as Josh Gates teams with the Ghost Hunters Academy recruits to invade the creepy Essex County Hospital in Cedar Grove, N.J. Keep an eye out for satanic dark energy in Building Five.

"Bram Stoker's Dracula" (9 p.m., WCIU-Channel 26): Svengoolie is your guide to the 1992 Francis Ford Coppola film that contributed to Winona Ryder's (first) breakdown. Keanu Reeves' English accent has to be heard to be believed, and watch for Sadie Frost -- Jude Law's first wife -- as a writhing victim.

"Saturday Night Live" (10:30 p.m., WMAQ-Channel 5): Taylor Swift hosts, and if Kanye West doesn't have the sense of humor to make a cameo, we will be mad at him all over again.

SUNDAY

"Sonny With a Chance" (7 p.m., Disney): Comedy Central's resident ventriloquist, Jeff Dunham, guest stars as a security guard -- along with his dummy Walter.

"Masterpiece Contemporary: Place of Execution" (8 p.m., WTTW-Channel 11): Juliet Stevenson stars as a TV journalist who investigates the disappearance of a 13-year-old girl 45 years earlier. Unsolicited advice: Rent her romance with Alan Rickman, 1990's "Truly Madly Deeply."

"Styl'd" (9 p.m., MTV): Four wannabe stylists accessorize and backstab for a shot at success under the judgmental eye of celebrity dresser Jennifer Rade. Because what we really need is more people to hate.
