Halloween is always big on the morning TV shows. But Sandy has ruined that fun.
Both Today and Good Morning America are canceling their annual extravaganzas to focus on post-storm coverage.
Today's Halloween show on the plaza has been nixed "given the sensitivity of this storm," NBC says.
GMA had been planning a Ghoul Morning America "epic super-party in Times Scare," according to a release sent out last week. The GMA team - George Stephanopoulos, Josh Elliott, Sam Champion and Lara Spencer - was going to be transformed, and the party was to include a 300-pound jack-o'-lantern, a massive candy sculpture, dogs in costume, wacky contests and witches' brew.
But GMA said in a statement this morning: "Due to Hurricane Sandy, GMA's Halloween show is canceled for tomorrow. GMA will continue to provide comprehensive coverage and report on the latest on those millions affected by the devastating storm."
