New Episodes Tonight:

Awkward: Season 3

The critics say that Awkward captures the anxiety of teenage life with wit and insight. On tonight’s season three finale, Jenna Hamilton (Ashley Rickards) and Collin (Nolan Gerard Funk) totally hook up.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season 1

Led by the surprisingly effective pairing of Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a charming, intelligently written take on the cop show format, according to the critics. In tonight’s Halloween episode, Amy balks when she’s ordered to wear a costume while out on street patrol, and Jake plots to steal Capt. Holt’s Medal of Valor.

Chicago Fire S2 – NBC

In this drama’s second season, it appears that budget cuts may pose as much a threat to the men and women of Firehouse 51 as a three-alarm fire. Tonight, Cheif Bolden (Eamonn Walker) is being pressured into an early retirement.

Dads: Season 1

Critics call Dads a near-total disaster, saying that it makes the fatal mistake of believing its racist gags can lend an edge to its aggressively predictable writing and unlikable characters. Tonight, Warner (Giovanni Ribisi) hires a new office assistant.

The Goldbergs – ABC

The pundits say The Goldbergs is at times too reliant on gimmicky references to 1980s pop culture, but it’s also sweet, sincere, and occasionally very funny. Tonight, an unearthed trove of love letters help to explain Pops’ (George Segal) marriage.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – ABC

Critics say Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is sure to please comic book fans, but the strong ensemble and brisk pacing help to make this better-than-average superhero show accessible to non-fanboys as well. Tonight, the team travels to Asia to rescue an extraordinary teen with the help of a mysterious girl.

The Mindy Project: Season 2

The second season of The Mindy Project is getting strong notices for Kaling’s strong, eccentric writing. Tonight, Mindy tags along what she thinks is a guys’ night out to the Museum of Modern Art, only to find it’s actually an MMA fight.

New Girl: Season 3

The critics remain pleased with New Girl, now in its third season. In tonight’s Halloween episode, Jess throws a party and tries to cheer Schmidt up with a Michael Keaton impersonation, but Schmidt hits them with a monumental decision.


One of CBS’ most reliable hits, NCIS is back for an 11th season. On tonight’s episode, Anthony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) spots the top suspect from a 15-year-old case at the scene of a murder.


The NCIS formula has proven to be so successful that its spinoff is on its fifth season. On tonight’s episode, a Navy officer’s ex is abducted, and the kidnappers demand classified documents as ransom.

The Originals: Season 1

The critcs say The Originals may overwhelm casual viewers with its myriad twists and bevy of supernatural beings, but this is a sleek, atmospheric Vampire Diaries spinoff with potential. Tonight, Hayley visits a mysterious doctor, Cami reveals shocking info about her past to Klaus, and Rebekah has a strange encounter with Elijah.

Person of Interest S3 – CBS

Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson star in this police procedural about a pair of lawmen who take preventative measures to stopping crime. On tonight’s episode, Shaw (Sarah Shahi) is assigned to keep an eye on a 10-year-old, who proves to be precocious in the art of surveilance.

Sons of Anarchy – FX

Critics say Sons of Anarchy continues to deliver an energetic blend of bracing action sequences, pitch black humor, and heartless violence. Tonight, the gang members face a number of threats from the outside.

Supernatural: Season 9

The demon-hunting Winchester brothers continue their quest to fight evil wherever they find it. On tonight’s episode, Castiel (Misha Collins) is pursued by a group of angels.

Trophy Wife – ABC

Critics say that charm, likeable characters, good chemistry, and an efficient pace help to make Trophy Wife a sly, insightful sitcom. Tonight, Kate (Malin Akerman) and Pete (Bradley Whitford) try to find ways to spice up their relationship.
