The Great Indoors (CBS, 8:30 p.m.) — Joel McHale’s new comedy premieres tonight. The show follows an adventure reporter sidelined by injury and reassigned to a magazine’s digital department, where he leads a group of millennials. McHale’s comedy chops aside, can we just take a minute to look at why CBS is giving us yet another older white male out of touch with the youth of America? Feels like someone at the network is working their own issues out on TV.

Mom (CBS, 9:00 p.m.) — The show’s fourth season premiere sees Adam moving in with Bonnie (which sorely tests their relationship) and Christy joining forces with Jill to meet men.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (CW, 8:00 p.m.) — Nate learns he has powers just as he and Ray land in Feudal Japan. Sara, Vixen and Rory agree to find Nate and help him master his powers so he can defend a Japanese village from the Shogun and an army of samurai warriors.

Notorious (ABC, 9:00 p.m.) — It’s pretty safe to say this show’s days are numbered but if you’re still into it, tonight, Jake’s affair with Sarah is revealed on live TV, but he also learns a disturbing secret about her as he’s surprised by fresh allegations.

Good Girls Revolt (Amazon) — This new drama from Amazon follows a group of young female researchers at a newsroom called “News of the Week,” who ask to be treated fairly. Basically it’s full of feminist goodness and it has Pitch Perfect’s Anna Camp in it. What’s not to love?
