American Horror Story (FX, 10 p.m.) — Besides a handful of very creepy and deliberately vague promos, we don’t have much to go on when it comes to the mysterious sixth season of American Horror Story which premieres tonight. Ryan Murphy and the crew at FX have done a bang up job of keeping us in the dark with a ton of misdirecting teasers and tight-lipped interviews. Will this season be about the lost colony of Roanoke? Or did TV Guide already spoil the whole thing with their title “reveal?” We’ll have to wait and see. What we do know is Lady Gaga is returning and we’ll all probably be having nightmares after the first episode.

Blindspot (NBC, 10 p.m.) — Season two kicks off with Jane being recaptured by the FBI where she’s asked to become a triple agent to spy on her old terrorist group.

South Park (Comedy Central, 10 p.m.) — South Park is heading into season 20 with, what else, a Colin Kaepernick-themed episode. A clip from the premiere episode shows Stan, Kyle and Randy along with the rest of the residents of South Park singing an alternate version of The Star-Spangled Banner with lyrics that address the NFL player’s protest of the national anthem.

Mr. Robot (USA, 10 p.m.) — Part one of the two-part season finale. Last week’s episode was the best of the season and raised a ton of questions. Let’s see if we start to get some answers.

America’s Got Talent (NBC, 8 p.m.) — The winning act for season 11 is revealed tonight. Oh and expect some special guests and surprise performances while NBC milks this thing for all it’s worth.

Big Brother (CBS, 8 p.m.) — It’s time to say goodbye to another houseguest.

MasterChef (Fox, 8 p.m.) — The first part of the combined season seven finale challenges the remaining three cooks to create mouthwatering appetizers in under an hour before creating an entrée and dessert in the same amount of time. Later, a winner is chosen to take home $250,000, a book deal and … a trophy. Yeah, that last one’s a bit of a let down.

Ghost Hunters (Syfy, 9 p.m.) — The team investigates the Old Lake County Jail in Crown Point, Ind. where famed gangster John Dillinger escaped in 1934 after reports of aggressive inmates reopening sealed areas and doors.

Suits (USA, 9 p.m.) — While Jessica and Rachel focus their efforts on keeping Leonard Bailey alive, Harvey and Louis must convince their oldest and most loyal client to stay with the firm in order to keep others from jumping ship.

Documentary Now! (IFC, 10 p.m.) — The fake documentary series from SNL vets Bill Hader and Fred Armisen is back for season two with a parody of the famous political documentary, The War Room. Season one was amazing. Fingers crossed for season two.

Legends of Chamberlain Heights (Comedy Central, 10:30 p.m.) — This animated comedy about three freshmen benchwarmers on a high-school basketball team who strive to prove their mettle on and off the court premieres tonight.
