CBS

Supergirl (CBS, 9 p.m.) – Glee star Melissa Benoist dons the red cape tonight as Supergirl, also known as Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin who apparently is equal-parts quirky and badass and not nearly as angst-ridden as her male counterpart. I’m not going to say the future of female-driven superhero shows depends on this CBS pilot, but I’m not going to not say that, either.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (CW, 8 p.m.) – Rebecca overcomes her childhood fear of hosting parties (and her lack of a social life) in order to get closer to the guy who dumped her in college and has now totally moved on with his life.

Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 8 p.m.) – Someone gets the boot and the remaining celebrities team up for their Halloween-themed dances.

Gotham (Fox, 8 p.m.) – Penguin and Galavan battle over who controls the underworld as things become even more intense in Kringle and Nygma’s relationship.

The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8 p.m.) – Penny and Bernadette pressure Amy to use a dating app in order to find a new guy, while Sheldon and Leonard are forced to do business with a black market dealer in order to procure some much-needed helium for their latest experiment.

The Voice (NBC, 8 p.m.) – Knockout rounds begin and a Rihanna sighting has been confirmed.

WWE Monday Night Raw (USA, 8 p.m.) – We take a look back at all of the craziness that happened on Hell in a Cell.

Awkward (MTV, 9 p.m.) – So, now we actually want to go to the prom?

Jane the Virgin (CW, 9 p.m.) – Jane and Rafael plan their baby’s baptism, while Rafael also deals with his ex stealing his sperm to artificially inseminate herself. Just a suggestion, Rafael: The next time you donate your jizz, do a better job of keeping track of it.

Minority Report (Fox, 9 p.m.) – Arthur and Dash try to save a sick girl they think is the next victim they’ve had a vision of, but “her people” aren’t feelin’ that.

Blindspot (NBC, 10 p.m.) – There’s a new app that can track government vehicles available for download, and obviously the FBI isn’t happy about it. Meanwhile, Jane and Weller do their best to keep their relationship professional. I think we all know how that’s going to turn out.

Fargo (FX, 10 p.m.) – The search for Rye heats up as Peggy tries her best to disprove a new theory about the Waffle Hut shooter.

LATE NIGHT GUESTS: Kristen Wiig and Ed Westwick on Kimmel; David Spade, Mike Tyson and Blake Shelton on Fallon; Sienna Miller and Melissa Benoist on Colbert; Clive Owen and Rachel Dratch on Meyers; Luke Wilson on Corden; and Brent Morin and Warren Haynes on Conan. The Daily Show with Trevor Noah is a repeat.
