The Third Presidential Debate (CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, CNN, MSNBC, 9:00 p.m.) — We’ve made it, people. This is the last time we have to deal with the circus show that these televised debates have become. Both candidates have something to prove: Hillary Clinton will undoubtedly have to speak on the recent WikiLeaks dumps and defend her email scandal (yet again) while Donald Trump needs to prove he’s not a misogynistic, sexual predator with sociopathic tendencies. Pretty sure we already know who has the harder job here.

American Horror Story: 6 (FX, 10:00 p.m.) — This is the episode a lot of fans have been waiting for. Ryan Murphy already let slip that tonight, the characters you’ve been following all season will change — the core actors will be playing totally different characters going forward. Tonight may also see the return of AHS favorites Finn Wittrock and Taissa Farmiga. Get ready.

Chance (Hulu) – Hugh Laurie’s returning to his on-screen profession, playing a fancy neuropsychiatrist in this 10 episode thriller from Hulu (the first two episodes premiere tonight). As great as it is to see Laurie doing more TV work, don’t get your hopes up for another repeat of House.

Arrow (CW, 8:00 p.m.) — A new drug dealer is terrorizing Star City and Arrow must take him down after Wild Dog strikes out on his own to handle the dealer but quickly learns he’s not up to the task.

Blindspot (NBC, 8:00 p.m.) — Weller and Nas hunt a fugitive whistle-blower in Bulgaria while Jane joins Roman for a Sandstorm mission.

Lethal Weapon (Fox, 8:00 p.m.) — Murtaugh and Riggs go after a former Navy SEAL but Riggs’ connection to the suspect quickly threatens to derail the case.

Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X (CBS, 8:00 p.m.) — Tribes are switched up and a few players form a search party to find the hidden immunity idol.

Frequency (CW, 9:00 p.m.) — Raimy informs Frank of new information she uncovered in the Thomas Goff case, prompting him to take action in spite of Satch’s warnings.

Lip Sync Battle (Spike, 9:00 p.m.) — We’re getting a mini Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants reunion tonight when America Ferrera and Amber Tamblyn face off on Lip Sync Battle. Ferrera’s set sounds strong — she’d doing a Missy Elliot impersonation — but seeing Tamblyn dress up as that orange Cheeto Donald Trump will probably win the night.

South Park (Comedy Central, 10:00 p.m.) — Garrison finally goes too far at a rally and reconsiders his future in politics. Meanwhile, the kids begin searching for an infamous Internet troll.

You’re the Worst (FXX, 10:00 p.m.) — Jimmy does Vernon’s podcast. This sounds wonderful.

Younger (TV Land, 10:00 p.m.) — Liza works hard to sign a couple of Youtube stars to Empirical.

Impastor (TV Land, 10:30 p.m.) — Buddy becomes trapped by a deadly criminal; the church council tries to stop an arson attempt on Ladner Trinity; and Dora meets up with her high school crush.
