Happy Endings (ABC, 9 p.m.) — Tonight’s Thanksgiving episode, “More Like Stanksgiving,” will feature Brad and Max’s lost season of The Real World. Yes. I am stoked, thanks for asking.
New Girl (Fox, 9 p.m.) — Another in a series of Thanksgiving episodes, tonight’s New Girl will feature Jess’ parents, played by Rob Reiner and Jamie Lee Curtis, whose bare breasts were the first cinematic boob many dudes in my generation ever saw. Thanks Trading Places.
The Mindy Project (Fox, 9:30 p.m.) — I’ve given it the benefit of the doubt. I’ve waited for it to come around. I’ve pretended I was enjoying it for the sake of Mindy Kaling. No more. The show is crap. The end.
Sons of Anarchy (FX, 10 p.m.) — Tonight we finally get into Nero’s backstory, and many of us our predicting that he’s a much darker character than has been depicted so far because, really, what this show needs is more plot lines.
Fringe (Science Channel, 8 p.m.) — If you always wanted to watch Fringe but never got around to it, you don’t have Netflix, and you hate the great Tuesday night sitcoms, starting tonight and continuing every Tuesday, the Science Channel is airing three hours of Fringe starting from the beginning.
Covert Affairs (USA, 10 p.m.) — Season finale. That’s happening.
