Hollywood Game Night (NBC, 8 p.m.) — Billy Eichner screams at Mekhi Phifer. OK!

Labyrinth (CW, 8 p.m.) — You remind me of the movie. (What movie?) The movie with the Bowie. (What Bowie?) The David Bowie. (Who do?) You do. (Do what?) Remind me of the movie. (It’s not the movie.)

Gang Related (Fox, 9 p.m.) — Series premiere. If it seems like Fox has been running promos for this show about an Los Angeles Police Department task force facing dangerous gangs for seven months now, that’s because they have. That’s a lot of Locke (and RZA!).

Last Comic Standing (NBC, 9 p.m.) — Season premiere. It’s been four years since the last season of Last Comic Standing, which the great James Adomian didn’t win because who the hell knows. But now it’s back, with judges Roseanne Barr, Keenen Ivory Wayans, Russell Peters, and host J.B. Smoove.

Comedy Bang! Bang! (IFC, 10:30 p.m.) — Jenna Fischer guest stars and sings.

@midnight (Comedy Central, 12 a.m.) — Doug Benson puts down the bong and Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide to talk about weed and movies with Chris Hardwick. Such range.

LATE NIGHT GUESTS: Amanda Seyfried on Fallon; Magic Johnson and T.J. Miller on Kimmel; Tom Lennon on Ferguson; Hugh Jackman and Kevin Nealon on Meyers; Ellen Page and Bob Saget on Conan; Drew Barrymore on Stewart; and Ray Maybus on Colbert.
