The Goldbergs (ABC, 9 p.m.) — I was so upset with The Goldbergs after a particular episode because the lead character was wearing a Back to the Future shirt while attending a screening of Poltergeist, and everyone knows that Back to the Future came out three years after Poltergeist. so how could he be wearing a T-shirt that didn’t exist yet? Series creator Adam Goldberg explains how this week on Vulture.
Sons of Anarchy (FX, 10 p.m.) — On December 3rd, the show is putting out Songs of Anarchy, Volume 3, another compilation of music from the show, and this one features a song by Maggie Siff (who plays Tara Knowles), and you know what? She has a pretty great voice.
