Ghost Adventures

TRAVEL | 9:00 pm
This new four-part Halloween-friendly miniseries follows Zak Bagans, Aaron Goodwin, Billy Tolley and Jay Wasley as they travel to a particularly treacherous nautical region of the Pacific Northwest that has earned the nickname "Graveyard of the Pacific" for the thousands of shipwrecks here. In the opener, "Astoria Underground," the crew begins its investigation into the tragic history of this region in Astoria, Ore., exploring the port city’s infamous Shanghai tunnels and learning how the works of H.P. Lovecraft figure into this lore. […]

The Cool Kids

FOX | 8:30 pm
Confronted with her 65th birthday, Margaret (Vicki Lawrence) is definitely in no mood to celebrate in the new episode "Margaret Turns 65." Her friends Hank, Sid and Charlie (David Alan Grier, Leslie Jordan, Martin Mull) are having none of that, however, and they insist on showing her a properly festive time — which means attempting a "young person’s night" at a local club. Predictably, that just leaves them feeling hungover and older than ever before. […]

Superstore

NBC | 8:00 pm
As fans remember, Season 3 ended as will-they-or-won’t-they couple Amy and Jonah (America Ferrera, Ben Feldman) finally did — give in to their passions, that is — not realizing their hook-up was captured by the store’s security cameras. The Season 4 premiere, "Back to School," opens on their first day back at work after the inevitable suspension that followed, which means they have to prepare themselves for brutal teasing. Elsewhere, Jeff (Michael Bunin) takes extreme measures to win back Mateo (Nico Santos). […]

Empire

FOX | 8:00 pm
Hey, how hard could it possibly be to launch a new artist, even when you don’t have the vast resources of Empire Entertainment at your disposal? Cookie and Lucious (Taraji P. Henson, Terrence Howard) learn the bitter answer to that question as their future with newcomer Treasure (guest star Kaitlynn Simone) threatens to fall apart in the new episode "Pay for Their Presumptions." Fortunately, they get two interesting offers that could restore them to power. Toby Onwumere also guest stars. […]

The Neighborhood

CBS | 8:00 pm
Any show that starts out being directed by sitcom master James Burrows ("Will & Grace") has a definite plus going in, and this comedy’s premiere has that advantage. Max Greenfield ("New Girl") and Beth Behrs ("2 Broke Girls") play a Midwestern couple who relocate to Los Angeles, where a new neighbor (Cedric the Entertainer) develops immediate doubts about them … and has no qualms about expressing those. Another performer with much experience in this genre, Tichina Arnold ("Martin"), also stars. […]

God Friended Me

CBS | 8:30 pm
It seems that virtually everyone is on social media these days — even the Deity, at least as suggested by this seriocomic new show. Rebounding from being "The Mayor" last season, Brandon Micheal Hall plays a man who doesn’t believe in religion, to the dismay of his clergyman father ("Scandal" alum Joe Morton), until he gets an apparent friend request from … well, check the title again. Violett Beane also stars as a reporter who helps to determine whether the situation is for real. […]

Saturday Night Live

NBC | 11:29 pm
This award-winning late-night sketch comedy series enters its 44th season tonight in resurgent style, with actor Adam Driver ("BlacKkKlansman") returning for his second hosting gig. Kanye West, who released his latest album "Ye" last June, makes his seventh "SNL" appearance as the featured musical guest. Multiple Emmy winner Kate McKinnon returns in a company that also includes Leslie Jones, Kenan Thompson and "Weekend Update" anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che. […]

Last Man Standing

FOX | 8:00 pm
Another lesson in never saying "never," the Tim Allen sitcom — which has remained popular in syndication after ABC canceled it — switches networks for its revival, with much of the original cast intact (though Molly McCook is the new "Mandy"). Consider the continuing misadventures of Outdoor Man staple Mike Baxter and his family a testament to the staying power of Allen, who was quite vocally displeased with the cancellation. Nancy Travis and Amanda Fuller also are among the returnees. […]

Murphy Brown

CBS | 9:30 pm
To the list of notable series revivals, add this return of the brassy television journalist played by multiple Emmy winner Candice Bergen. With the premiere, "Fake News," original writer-producer Diane English also is back to help fuel the often-topical humor as Murphy navigates a new media world that involves her son Avery (Jake McDorman) as a professional rival. Co-stars Faith Ford, Grant Shaud and Joe Regalbuto return, too — and another addition is Tyne Daly as the current operator of the bar the gang frequents. […]
