Presidential Debate (Various networks, 9 p.m.) — “Mr. President, Governor Romney, if you found a young boy covered in puppies in the woods, what would you do? What WOULD you do?”
National League Championship Series (Fox, 7:30 p.m.) — Game 7. Cardinals at Giants. Go Giants. That is all.
The Voice (NBC, 8 p.m.) — You guys. I woke up at 3 a.m., so maybe it’s just been a long day and I’m angry, but, and if you don’t mind being stuck with me for a little bit longer, doesn’t it feel like we’re life’s dominated love slaves, with how jaded and drenched in blood, sex, and booze things are today? Which is to say: Billie Joe Armstrong and Rob Thomas assist Cee Lo & Co. tonight. Screw you guys: I’M GOING TO PASALACQUA.
Homeland (Showtime, 9 p.m.) — Or you can just watch this HOLY CRAP DID YOU SEE THAT episode. I did see that, but I want to see it again, and then celebrate Homeland getting picked up for another season. If I was a teen girl, I’d write “I <3 Saul Berenson" in my diary so many times. Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (Travel, 9 p.m.) — Tony partakes in a “Haitian cemetery on the Day of the Dead…[and] heads to Iraq covered in body armor, prepped for minefields and death.” Psh. He didn’t sit through an episode of 666 Park Avenue this morning, like I did. That takes guts.
Monday Night Football (ESPN, 8 p.m.) — Bears vs. Lions. Primetime football games featuring Smokin’ Jay Cutler are always fun to follow along on Twitter.
LATE NIGHT GUESTS: Tom Hanks on Letterman; Halle Berry and Gary Clark, Jr. on Leno; Bryan Cranston on Ferguson; Gerard Butler, Madeleine Stowe, Felix Baumgartner, and Wu-Tang Clan on Fallon; Azis Ansari, Chuck Lorre, and Kendrick Lamar on Conan; D.L.
