8:30 pm 2 Broke Girls (CBS) | Max’s babysitting gig is in peril if the cupcakes she and Caroline deliver to Peach’s socialite friend aren’t perfect. (That is CBS’ own alliteration, not mine. I’ll give them an 8.)

10 pm Castle (ABC) | Investigating the murder of a man with human bite marks on his body, Castle and Beckett delve into New York’s zombie subculture to find the killer and bring him in — dead, undead or alive. (Again, that’s the network’s wordplay, and I wholly endorse it.)
