8 pm Killing Kennedy (NatGeo) | Based on the best-selling book by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, this TV-movie follows President John F. Kennedy (Parks and Recreation’s Rob Lowe) and his ultimate assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald (Will Rothhaar, Last Resort), in the events leading up to Nov. 22, 1963. Once Upon a Time’s Ginnifer Goodwin costars as First Lady Jackie Kennedy.

8:30 pm Bob’s Burgers (Fox) | Bob scores a gig as a cook at an “underdog” frat house and fits right in…. until he takes part in a prank involving Dr. Yap (voiced by Community’s Ken Jeong).

9 pm Shake It Up (Disney Channel) | Series finale: When a fashion mishap leaves CeCe with amnesia, Rocky tries everything she can to jog her friend’s memory. (That’s very Full House of them, eh?)

9 pm Revenge (ABC) | Conrad hires party girl-turned-PR whiz Bizzy Preston (Ugly Betty’s Ana Ortiz) to restore the Grayson family name. (Watch a first look.)

9 pm Boardwalk Empire (HBO) | Nucky enlists Eli and Agent Knox to check out extra cargo in Florida shipments; Margaret considers a deal with Rothstein.

9 pm The Walking Dead (AMC) | Assorted enemies pressure Rick and the group. (“Assorted enemies”? That’s so vague, it almost makes me long for an ambiguous Breaking Bad synopsis.)

9 pm Homeland (Showtime) | Carrie and Quinn scramble as Saul makes the gamble of his career.

9:30 pm The Good Wife (CBS) | As Alicia and Cary suspect Lockhart/Gardner is spying on them (ya think?), Nathan Lane’s Clarke Hayden returns to offer financial advice to Florrick/Agos.

10 pm Total Divas (E!) | Fall premiere: Nikki is threatened by Eva Marie’s popularity while Ariane struggles to control her anger issues. (Fortunately, a career in wrestling seems like the perfect outlet.)

10 pm Witches of East End (Lifetime) | Freya makes a startling discovery at Fair Haven.

10:30 pm The Mentalist (CBS) | Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: Jane gathers the remaining Red John suspects in one place in hopes of finally revealing the killer. (But the real mystery is whether football will preempt this episode, again. Keep your eye on @CBSTweet!)

    I wonder if CBS will preempt The Good Wife this time if there are delays again and finally give us this episode of The Mentalist. Not holding my breath though.

  5. Renee says:

    But where is Masters of Sex?? My new fave show…

  7. Maryann says:

    Once Upon a Time
    Witches of East End
    The Mentalist – I refuse to sit around waiting for it to start when there is not even a guarantee we get a new episode tonight, or what time it will start, so I will watch when the episode becomes available next week.

  8. Tran 2.0 says:

    Homeland and Total Divas

  9. CBS is killing The Good Wife and The Mentalist by never knowing for sure if/when they will start. Not everybody watches football.

  10. IMember says:

  17. Fernando says:

    DVR Killing Kennedy
    Watch Live: OUAT, Revenge, and Witches of a East End.

  22. jon says:

    Walking dead! It’s gonna be good!

  23. Britta Unfiltered says:

    Oh, come now, we all know Mad Men is the king of the ambiguous synopsis.
    I’m glad Margaret is back on Boardwalk Empire. We’ve seen way too little of her. I really haven’t been crazy about Agent Knox’s character on the show. He’s no Gyp Rossetti, that’s for sure. I’ve been loving the Al Capone/Van Alden dynamic this season. Those two deserve a spin-off. And I’ve loved seeing so much of Chalky and Richard Harrow.
    “Assorted enemies”? Sounds like The Governor is back. I’m going to go start The Walking Dead right now!
