The patrons at Rovers Return are raising their glasses and celebrating. No, not because Tracy has left town; CBC has signed a new deal to keep 'Coronation Street' on the air for the foreseeable future.

Variety is reporting the Canadian broadcaster has inked a multi-year agreement with ITV Studios Global Entertainment and, for the first time, it includes digital rights enabling audiences to watch the show in Canada via iTunes and CBC's Video on Demand service.

Corrie episodes in Canada air eight to nine months (we know, the horror!) behind the U.K. and continues to be one of the country's most popular imported series.

That magical box we stare at for entirely too long has the ability to mesmerize and terrify us, even if we don't believe it has that power. Admit it, we've all gone to bed at some point in our lives after watching something scary on TV, and we've pulled the covers up over our heads. It's not real, yet it has the power to make us afraid. Very afraid.

In the spirit of Halloween, here are the Top 13 scariest moments on television (in no particular order). Let us know if we've missed the mark.

Law and Order's Linus Roache: In the Limelight

Linus Roache LeadThis season, Law and Order was looking for a way to get some new energy and interest in the long-running NBC Emmy-winning series, so on the judicial end of the show, they promoted Sam Waterson's Jack McCoy to DA and cast Linus Roache as Assistant District Attorney Michael Cutter. Roache is one of those familiar faces that you've seen on other shows, maybe a movie or two, but here on Law and Order he's making you sit up and take notice. At least that's how it is for me. After watching the first two new episodes when the show returned recently, I wanted to know more about this guy. For starters, why did he remind me of a young Bobby Kennedy?

Well, it turns out that Linus Roache played Robert Kennedy in the mini-series, RFK. The Kennedy connection was even alluded to in last week's episode; at the end of the show, after McCoy had to defend his decision to prosecute overzealous New York City cops by taking the stand in open court, Roache's character, Cutter, gives him a tie pin that once belonged to RFK. With the last line of the show, Cutter says, "I found it on EBay."
