Welcome to “On TV Tonight,” the TV Addict’s daily look at what’s on, what’s streaming and what’s worth watching today.
MACGYVER (8PM, CBS)
Series Premiere: Is American clamoring for a reboot of a nostalgic 80’s series. Based on the fact that this series opens on a night that includes the seventh season of HAWAIAI FIVE-0 and Tom Selleck’s BLUE BLOODS, we suspect CBS has a hit on his hands.
LAST MAN STANDING (8PM, ABC)
Season Premiere: Television’s most underrated and underapprecaited gem returns for a sixth season to make America laugh again.
DR. KEN (8PM, ABC)
Season Premiere: When MASTER OF NONE co-creator Alan Yang railed against Hollywood’s lack of Asian visibility on television at this past weekend’s Emmys, we’re not sure this is what he was talking about.
THE EXORCIST (9PM, FOX)
Series Premiere: Geena Davis faces down the scarriest three words in the history of Fox Broadcasting, “Friday Night Timeslot!”
REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER (10PM, FOX)
Columnist Maureen Dowd and musician Michael Franti are the interview guests. The panelists are author Max Brooks, Hoover Institution fellow Lanhee Chen and Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden.
VAN HELSING (10PM, FOX)
Series Premiere: After a three-year sleep, the mysterious Vanessa is resurrected in a world now ruled by vampires. Joining other human survivors holed up in an abandoned hospital, she discovers she has special powers, which, in the series premiere, she quickly puts to use fending off those who want her dead.
TRANSPARENT (Streaming, Amazon)
Season Premiere: Amazon’s trailblazing series returns for a third season that sees Maura consider gender confirmation surgery.
