CBS

The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8:00 p.m.) – Sheldon turns a bit green after a coworker receives a prestigious award as Howard stumbles upon a remote-control Stephen Hawking action figure that he invented. Of course, this is the perfect opportunity to have the real Stephen Hawking make a guest appearance.

The Grand Tour (Amazon) – Word is, Amazon’s new original motoring show might be available a bit early for U.S. residents, but if you wait until midnight tonight to purchase a Prime membership to watch it, the deal won’t cost you as much. A good enough reason to turn into this series that stars Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May as they travel the world fangirling over old cars.

Lovesick (Netflix) – When the first season of this original series premiered it went by a different name, which is why you might not recognize it. Thankfully, Netflix got the hint that Scrotal Recall was the worst possible name for a romantic comedy, so they changed the show’s title – but kept everything else that made it worth watching. The show follows a dorky Brit named Dylan who must reconnect with all of his exes when he’s diagnosed with an STI. (Because no true modern day romance comes without at least one sexually transmitted disease.)

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (CW, 8:00 p.m.) – The Legends travel to the Old West to help Jonah Hex with his arch-nemesis Quentin Turnbull, an a-hole of a guy who wants to make Hex’s backyard his own lawless territory.

The Great Indoors (CBS, 8:30 p.m.) – The “millennials” clean out an old storage unit and uncover some interesting information about Jack’s love life.

Pitch (Fox, 9:00 p.m.) – Ginny’s brother pays an unexpected visit causing tension between the pitcher and her agent. Meanwhile, the team holds kangaroo court in the clubhouse during a rain delay and Mike considers trading to a new team.

Notorious (ABC, 9:00 p.m.) – The murder case against Maya Hartman has Jake working all kinds of angles, including wanting her mother to plead her case on LHL, even though Louise once aired an illicit video of Dana with her daughter’s boyfriend.

Mom (CBS, 9:00 p.m.) – Christy and Bonnie freak out when Roscoe’s caught smoking pot, immediately assuming the guy has some sort of drug problem. Hey, if that’s how he chooses to deal with a Trump presidency, no judgment here.
