What to Watch Monday: Bones Talks Trash, Mike & Molly Matchmake, a Live! Halloween and More

On TV this Monday: Kelly and Michael celebrate Halloween LIVE! (if a couple of days late), Bones‘ garbage-themed return from hiatus is oh-so-Sweets, Mike & Molly set up the latter’s mom with a Major Dad and Pine Valley’s Ruth Martin travels to Hawaii. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (always linked within), here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.

9 am LIVE! with Kelly and Michael (Check local listings) | Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan will don more than 40 costumes during the morning show’s annual Halloween party, which was postponed by last week’s Hurricane Sandy coverage. The show also will be part of ABC’s “Day of Giving,” a fundraising effort for East Coast victims that starts with Good Morning America and ends with Nightline.
