DANCING WITH THE STARS Monday 10/31/11 (8:30-10:01 PM) on ABC

THIS HALLOWEEN NIGHT, JOIN ABC’S “DANCING WITH THE STARS” FOR A FULL NIGHT OF TREATS, INCLUDING THE ALWAYS ENTERTAINING TEAM DANCES

“Episode 1307” — Monday’s “Dancing with the Stars” kicks off live from the ballroom with an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the remaining couples as they get ready for their big Halloween night during the special ABC premiere of “Scared Shrekless,” which airs Monday, October 31 from 7:58-8:30 p.m., ET.

Then, the Halloween Night event continues with an exciting Halloween-themed episode of “Dancing with the Stars,” filled with thrilling performances from the remaining six couples. Each pair will light up the ballroom floor with killer costumes and an electrifying dance to some of Halloween’s favorite spooky tunes. Later in the night they return to the floor when Team Tango’s J.R & Karina, Nancy & Tristan and David & Kym, dancing to Rihanna’s “Disturbia,” battle Team Paso’s Ricki & Derek, Hope & Maksim and Rob & Cheryl, dancing to Evanescence’s “Bring Me to Life.”

Inspired by the hit feature film “Shrek,” viewers will join Shrek (Mike Myers) as he celebrates his favorite holiday, ogre-style. Shreck ditches the standard tricks or treats and challenges fairy-tale characters, including Donkey (Dean Edwards) and Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas), to a scary storytelling contest. Just as the contest is set to begin, they all discover they must spend the night in Lord Farguaad’s haunted castle, and the last one to be scared “Shrekless” will win.

The remaining couples are:

* DAVID ARQUETTE, actor and producer, and partner KYM JOHNSON.
* NANCY GRACE, TV host and journalist, and partner TRISTAN MACMANUS.
* ROBERT KARDASHIAN, reality star, and partner CHERYL BURKE.
