Prime Picks

Mockingbird Lane (NBC): New Special. NBC decided not to pick this revamping of The Munsters up to series, but thought it would work as a Halloween special. It isn’t often that you get to see a failed “Pilot” episode. Will you be checking this out tonight?

Fringe (FOX): New. The team wonders if they can trust Broyles when they end up in hostile territory.

Haven (Syfy): New. Audrey, Nathan and Duke end up trapped in a haunted house on Halloween night. Plays again later.

Solid Selections

NCIS (CBS): Repeat. The 200th episode, “Life Before His Eyes,” replays.

Nikita (The CW): New. Nikita is trying to stop a brainwashed girl from detonating a bomb to take out a top-level target. This is one of the best episodes the series has ever done. The way it ties in with both Nikita and Alex’s past works incredibly well. Just a flat out great episode.

Hunted (Cinemax): New. Sam gets into the Turner household as a tutor. Zoe and Ian are focused on a briefcase that was delivered to Jack. Plays again later.

Other Options

  • Blue Bloods (CBS): New. Danny is searching for a detective that has been abductied after an undercover stint.
  • CSI: NY (CBS): New. Mac reopens a 20-year-old case about a missing boy after the person who was the prime suspect is murdered on the anniversary of the abduction.
  • Grimm (NBC): New. Nick and Hank are working with a detective from Albuquerque on some child abductions.
  • The Walking Dead (AMC): Repeat. This past Sunday’s episode, “Sick,” replays. Plays again later.

Sports Note

  • ESPN has Friday Night College Football with Cincinnati at Louisville.

Late Night

  • Alphas (Syfy): Repeat. This past Monday’s second season finale episode, “God’s Eye,” replays.
