'Happy Endings': Halloween Arrives Early With Online Premiere (Video)
Call it a bid to raise awareness about the show or a "thank you" to its loyal fan base. Either way, the Oct. 26 episode of Happy Endings is already here.
ABC released the Halloween-themed outing on Yahoo two days ahead of its premiere. It's a first for the series, which currently airs Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. after Modern Family.

"Spooky Endings" finds most of the gang heading to a warehouse party where more than one of them enters a drag competition, while Brad (Damon Wayans Jr.) and Jane (Eliza Coupe) brave the much more frightening prospect of house-sitting in the suburbs.
The episode features the cast donning some elaborate costumes -- including Jane as a giant strip of bacon and Dave (Zach Knighton) as an outdated Austin Powers -- and has guest appearances from Perfect Couples star David Walton and Upright Citizens Brigade vet Matt Besser.
