8 pm How I Met Your Mother (CBS) | In a “flashback” episode, the gang ponders the Ted/Robin/Barney triangle, and Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) returns as Ted’s former boss, Hammond Druthers. (Hopefully without any, um, phallic architecture plans.)

8:30 pm 2 Broke Girls (CBS) | When Caroline’s date to a chic new restaurant stands her up (the nerve!), she and Max decide to take advantage of the dinner reservation.

VIDEO | Beauty and the Beast First Look: Vincent Rescues a (Beastly?) Damsel in Distress

9 pm Sleepy Hollow (Fox) | Abbie gets an unexpected visit from Andy Brooks (returning guest star John Cho). Can he not have his neck snapped all the way back this time? (Watch Spoiler Alert! below for Mike, Matt and Kim’s thoughts on the Abbie/Ichabod relationship.)

9 pm Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1 (HBO) | This Veterans Day documentary profiles counselors at the Veterans’ Crisis Line, which works 24/7 to provide support to retired and active servicemen dealing with emotional, physical and financial troubles.

9 pm Mike & Molly (CBS) | Molly decides writing a crime novel will be her new career — because really, why not? — so she goes on a ride-along with Mike for research.

9:30 pm Mom (CBS) | Christy is nervous about a romantic weekend getaway with Adam, while Gabriel’s wife suspects he is cheating.

VIDEO | Castle Video: Rick and Kate Encounter a Big Problem in the Bedroom

10 pm The Blacklist (NBC) | Liz uncovers an elaborate plot to destroy the country’s financial system, and Tom supports her when a very mysterious family member falls ill.

10 pm Dream School (Sundance Channel) | Season finale: Emotions run high as the students work toward graduation.

10 pm Hostages (CBS) | While Ellen must decide whether to save Duncan’s life, President Kincaid wants to reveal details of a surveillance program that allowed intelligence agencies to spy on U.S. citizens. (Hmm, sounds familiar….)
