If you see Kiefer Sutherland looking worried in either DC, LA, or NYC, run the other way in a mad dash (or run and hide behind him): either way, something terrorist is about to go down. We also recommend staying out of colonial Roanoke.
Designated Survivor [ABC, 10p]
While admittedly high concept and familiar territory for Sutherland, I can’t help but be intrigued by the promise of this reflective thriller debuting tonight.
Mr. Robot [USA, 10p]
I had theories, oh so many theories and alas I am completely stumped now. Can’t tell what is even real anymore. Kudos, Sam Esmail. Hopefully tonight we will figure out if Tyrell is really alive and what phase 2 is.
The Goldbergs [ABC, 8p]
In the season 4 premiere, the Goldberg kids end up in a Breakfast Club-style Saturday detention hall, overseen by substitute teacher Beverly.
American Horror Story [FX, 10p]
Now that we know that the new season of AHS is a pseudo documentary that deals with the mystery of the lost colony of Roanoke set against a back drop southern racism, it’s time to delve deeper into the horror as a biracial couple (Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding, Jr.) adjust to living in a haunted house surrounded by racist hillbillies.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- A corrupt DA agent is the subject of this week’s second episode of the second season of CBS’ Blindspot.
- So, who else has Fox’s Lethal Weapon in their Fall 2016 deadpool? The pilot based on the classic 1980s buddy cop flick debuts tonight.
- Two titans return tonight: Modern Family on ABC and Empire on Fox.
