What to watch on Tuesday, November 10...
The Mindy Project
Mindy is determined to get Leo into Manhattan’s most prestigious preschool in “Jody Kimball-Kinney is My Husband.” But with Danny out of town, she needs to convince her nemesis Jody to help her wow the admissions committee. Say, do you think real-world members of school admissions committees encounter charades and shenanigans as often as their sitcom-world counterparts?
Iwo Jima: From Combat to Comrades
Seventy years after the Battle of Iwo Jima, four veterans of the combat—three of them American, one Japanese—return to the island as part of the Reunion of Honor, an organization founded to build a bridge between former enemies. Film crews from both nations contributed to the documentary.
Jimmy’s searching for his soulmate in “My Amal,” but a date with Sara’s coworker proves to be a dead-end. (Could guest star Dave Coulier be the answer?) In marginally more successful couplings, Gerald and Vanessa consider becoming friends with benefits.
8pm, The CW
“Enter Zoom” finds Barry and Iris devising a cunning plan to lure Earth Two’s Big Bad to their side of the breach—with Linda’s help. Caitlin and Jay, however, think a showdown would be far too dangerous, even if it is November sweeps.
In “Saviors,” Jeanne Benoit’s husband is among the victims of an insurgent attack in Sudan, leading to a reunion with DiNozzo when he and McGee arrive to investigate.
Kermit decompresses at a yoga retreat where Jason Bateman is also trying to blow off some steam, in “Pig’s in a Blackout.” In the frog’s absence, Scooter gets to run the show, and by “run” I mean “make a huge hash of.”
Fresh Off the Boat
Eddie plans a secret mall party to ring in his 12 birthday in “The Big 1-2,” prompting a heart-to-heart with Jessica and Louis when they inevitably find out. Elsewhere, Emery and Evan misbehave in an effort to get themselves some attention from their parents.
It’s school play time in “Dedicating This One to the Crew,” and rather than join tech like his father once did, Ethan pursues an onstage role in the production. Meanwhile, Stewart asks Dean Sr. why he and Dean each got different kinds of life advice when growing up.
Debt of Honor: Disabled Veterans in America
A chronicle of how America’s government and society have treated disabled combat veterans throughout the nation’s history, from the Revolutionary War up to the present day. Veterans such as Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), former Sen. Max Cleland, and actor J.R. Martinez are among those sharing their experiences.
9pm, The CW
Investigating a lowlife gambler’s murder lands Liv on the radar of Seattle’s most dangerous man in “Max Wager,” but it puts Clive in a much more exciting position when he gets to question a former NBA star (Rick Fox). Meanwhile, Blaine’s father makes a key discovery, Ravi doles out bad news, and Major continues to circle the drain.
Grace seeks Chanel’s help digging into KKT’s past in “Mommie Dearest,” and in the process will the antagonists discover that they are Not So Different? Elsewhere, Dean Munsch flips her lid when the Red Devils come gunning for her, and Denise takes over as house mother.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The truth about S.H.I.E.L.D.’s newest ornery adversary comes out in “Chaos Theory,” while Fitz and Simmons obtain other critical information that could open the way through the portal.
9pm, WGN America
“The World of Tomorrow” finds Frank adapting to his new place on the Hill. Y’know, hanging hisDilbert strips, learning where the bathrooms are, standard settling-in stuff.
Brian tries to rescue a girl from pirates in “When Pirates Pirate Pirates,” and not the kind the entertainment industry gets its collective knickers in a twist about. Elsewhere, Brian and Rebecca help Naz fight treason charges, but stumble upon a different secret in the process.
In “Regarding This Wedding,” Boden makes the firehouse available to a couple whose original knot-tying venue was destroyed in a fire. This irks Chief Riddle, as does Dawson’s ability to perform. (It’s possible Chief Riddle is just a big ol’ Grumpy Gus.) In other conflicts, Severide presses for his old position while Capt. Patterson is torn between leadership and his colleagues.
Being Mary Jane
Mary Jane resorts to unorthodox measures to secure her future after SNC opts to keep Marisol around. Elsewhere in “Hot Seat,” Niecy reaches out to her mother as her rift with Patrick persists.
The Bastard Executioner
Ventrishire has a run-in with un ennemi français in “The Bernadette Maneuver / Cynllwyn Bernadette.” (Hey, I can actually pronounce one of the words in the Welsh title this week!) Meanwhile, Wilkin learns more about his holy destiny.
