Halloween – It’s a marathon of every Roseanne Halloween episodes, kicking off with the 1991 episode that included a guest appearance by George Clooney‘s Booker.

Basketball Wives
– The ladies all head to Hawaii for some rest and relaxation, but it all hits the fan when they start talking and realizing the reason they’re always fighting is because Jackie is always stirring the pot.

– Ted finally reunites with The Slutty Pumpkin, who looks a lot like Katie Holmes. Because she is.

– Yep, they’re showing the late Russell Armstrong, as he threatens to sue one of his castmates. Is this the episode that makes you stop watching?

10PM | CBS
Hawaii Five-0
– A drifter who puts a curse on Danny looks a lot like Robert “Freddy Krueger” Englund. Because he is.
