The Mindy Project (Fox, 9:30 p.m.) — I don’t know what the consensus around here is on The Mindy Project, but over the last month — as its really trained its focus on Mindy, Danny, Max from Happy Endings and whoever Mindy is dating — the Fox sitcom has been as good as its ever been. I’m gonna miss it during its hiatus (Brooklyn Nine-Nine will move into this slot until it runs out of new episodes, then Mindy will return).

Justified (FX, 10 p.m.) — In tonight’s episode, Raylan kicks back in a mob accountant’s La-Z-Boy, and may or may not mess around with Amy Smart.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Fox, 8:30 p.m.) — Terry returns to the field and learns from Jake how to control his emotions. Terry loves a good cry.

New Girl (Fox, 9 p.m.) — I absolutely love that they couldn’t figure out how to work CeCe into plotlines without her relationship with Schmidt, so they just made her a bartender. Why not?

Trophy Wife (ABC, 9:30 p.m.) — Love this show, but it also has the worst names on TV. Bert. Warren. Jackie. Diane Hillary. It’s as though they used a baby book from the 1940s to come up with all the character names.

Cougar Town (TBS, 10 p.m.) — Tonight’s episode was directed by Courteney Cox. Last week’s was directed by Bobby Cobb, and they did a fine damn job of utilizing Matthew Perry.

Kroll Show (Comedy Central, 10:30 p.m.) — I watched last week’s season premiere. It was OK. I actually liked the in-between sketch segments where Kroll was just being himself the best. Some of those sketch characters wear thin quickly.

If none of those tickle your fancy, check out any of the best 25 series on Netflix, the best Netflix documentaries, or the best recent movie releases on Netflix.
