What to Watch Tonight

Red Band Society Bows, AGT and Extant Finales and More

  • AOL Originals
    Making a Scene With James Franco

    Series premiere, first three episodes: In this new series, the titular multi-hyphenate collaborates with his creative team and fellow actors to produce one-of-a-kind reimaginings of classic big-screen moments.

  • NBC
    America's Got Talent

    Season finale, two hours: Guests/performers include Pitbull (of course), Travis Barker, Jennifer Hudson, Lenny Kravitz, Cyndi Lauper, Train and a surprise someone to assist Mat Franco with a special illusion.

  • Fox
    Hell's Kitchen

    The team that most successfully completes the recipes printed on the back of their jackets will win a day flying across Venice Beach.

  • CBS
    Big Brother

    Who is next to be evicted, and thus not make the Final 3? (Hey, TVLine’s Rebecca Iannucci, we’re asking you!)

  • Fox
    Red Band Society

    Series premiere: Fronted by Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer, this Fault in Our Stars-meets-Breakfast Club dramedy follows a group of young patients/unlikely friends, and the adults who mentor them, during their time at a shiny L.A. hospital. Manipulative, but good.

  • TNT

    In the aftermath of last week’s shootout, the mysterious Verax Corporation sends hitmen to retrieve Kyle Dobson, forcing Martin to take his prisoner on the run.

  • OWN
    Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse

    Fall premiere: Marcus accidentally takes canine fertility pills (ooh, that sounds ruff); Angela can only handle so much sex.

  • The CW
    The 100

    Repeat to Revisit: With an eye on the Season 2 premiere (airing Oct. 22), flash back to the dystopian drama’s game-changing freshman finale.

  • NBC
    The Mysteries of Laura

    Special preview: Debra Messing stars as a cop who struggles to balance her job with her home life, which includes bratty twins and a soon-to-be-ex (Josh Lucas). Watch for the early scene where Laura takes a highly risky shot while not looking anywhere near her gun’s sight! Really, the #WCW promos are the best thing about this quite “meh” show (which starting next Wednesday airs at 8/7c.)

  • CBS

    Season finale: Molly returns to space in a bid to protect Earth from the deadly spores, while John discovers that Odin’s plan has put Ethan in terrible danger.

    NEXT WEDNESDAY: ABC’s The Middle, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, black-ish and Nashville, CBS’ Survivor, NBC’s Law & Order: SVU and Chicago P.D. and Comedy Central’s South Park and Key & Peele all premiere, while Big Brother airs its finale.
