What to watch on Tuesday, November 24...

12:01am, Hulu
The Mindy Project
Mindy and Danny’s engagement party gives their parents a chance to meet for the first time in “The Lahiris and the Castellanos.” Let’s just say the couples won’t be rushing to buy adjacent units at Del Boca Vista together.

8pm, PBS
American Experience
“The Pilgrims” recounts the story of the Plymouth Colony in 1620, including the conflicts that drove the colonists to quit England, the hardships they endured upon arriving in North America, and their landmark appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. Wait, I may be thinking of Beatles rather than pilgrims on that last one.

The Doll Life
The fashion season culminates with Dolldelight’s show at LVL UP Expo in Las Vegas.

8pm, CBS
The team helps a sailor with leukemia locate a bone marrow donor after his two Marine siblings are killed in the line of duty. Elsewhere in “Blood Brothers,” Bishop celebrates Thanksgiving with her family, including mom Lindsay Wagner, at home in Oklahoma.

8pm, Fox
In “Gerald’s Two Dads,” Jimmy’s traditional Thanksgiving plans (Malibu, model) are waylaid when a run-in with Sara’s ex-boyfriend (Andy Daly) leaves him feeling threatened.

8:30pm, Fox
The Grinder
While looking forward to his first family Thanksgiving in ages, a meddling Dean inadvertently knocks a big ol’ skeleton out of the Sanderson closet in “Giving Thanks, Getting Justice.” Meanwhile, flashbacks shed light on the last days of The Grinder, and introduce its writer/creator (Jason Alexander) and a frenemy of Dean’s (Timothy Olyphant).

9pm, Fox
Scream Queens
Chanel accompanies Chad to a Turkey Day celebration in “Thanksgiving,” where Alan Thicke,Julia Duffy, Chad Michael Murray, and Patrick Schwarzenegger round out the Radwell clan. In even tenser gatherings, accusations fly like flung stuffing when Dean Munsch hosts a dinner for the remaining Kappas.

Dancing With the Stars
The finalists leave it all on the dance floor in hoping of taking home this season’s crown. Whoever comes in last has to clean it all up.

9pm, WGN America
Things take a fatal turn during the search for a Soviet spy in “Behold the Lord High Executioner.” Of course, things also took a fatal turn during the search for a misplaced stapler. This is just a really dangerous place to work, is the problem.

9pm, NBC
Chicago Med
Dr. Choi treats a teenage girl who abandoned her newborn in an alley, and the team grapples with tough calls about the patient’s future. Meanwhile in “iNo,” Dr. Halstead treats a hypochondriac suffering from (apparently real) chest pains, and Dr. Charles treats a woman who may or may not have dementia.

10pm, NBC
Chicago Fire
Boden suspects he’s being targeted by a scheming neighbor in “Sharp Elbows,” though he should’ve known what he was getting into when he moved to the Sitcom Square neighborhood. Elsewhere, Severide endures probation with the help of his visiting father, but a choice bit of info on Patterson could reverse his fortunes.

10pm, PBS
Secrets of the Dead
“Jamestown’s Dark Winter” relates a grisly episode from the first permanent English colony in the Americas: the brutal winter of 1609-10, which evidence suggests forced some settlers to resort to cannibalism to survive. So y’know, maybe don’t complain that grandma’s yams are too starchy on Thursday, huh?

10pm, BET
Being Mary Jane
“If the Shoe Fits” finds family drama shoving Mary Jane’s birthday onto the backburner. That the tension erupted mid-chorus really made things awkward for the singing waitstaff at T.G.I.Friday’s.

10pm, CBS
In “Arm-ageddon,” Boyle asks Brian to help him clear an old military buddy of a murder that the accused swears was the work of someone who hacked his prosthetic limb. So instead of being framed by a one-armed man, he was framed by an unmanned arm! Thank you, I’ll be here all week. Remember to tip your waitress.

SEASON 3 FINALE, 10:30pm, Comedy Central
