What’s On TV Tonight? – 10/26/2012

8:00 PM EST

Mockingbird Lane (“Pilot”) – Bryan Fuller’s attempt at rebooting the classic sitcom The Munsters ultimately wasn’t picked up to series. However, NBC has decided to burn off the pilot, the only filmed episode of the proposed series, as a Halloween special. Early reports suggest it’s a really unique show, with werewolves, weirdos, and hearts being taken out of chests for repair when they’ve been broken. The pilot stars Jerry O’Connell, Eddie Izzard, and Portia de Rossi. (NBC)

America’s Next Top Model (“The Girls Go To Jamaica”) – The models travel to Jamaica, where they are greeted by Tyra and an ensemble of performers; during a photo shoot, the models pose with Rob Evans and another male model on a raft. Derek Zoolander, maybe? (The CW)

Kitchen Nightmares (“La Galleria 33, Part One”) – Ramsay goes to Boston’s La Galleria 33 and tries to help the owners turn their failing business around. If this has to be spread out over multiple episodes, then they must have some serious issues. (FOX)

Shark Tank (“Season 4, Episode 7″) – A modern-day slip business; a scrubbing tool; dog-friendly frozen yogurt; an electric unicycle; an update on the “Lollacup.” No idea what that last one is, but I suddenly feel the urge to buy ten. (ABC)

9:00 PM EST

CSI: NY (“Misconceptions”) – Mac takes another look at a 20-year-old case involving a missing boy when the prime suspect is murdered; Flack tries to face his lingering issues. Like having the name “Flack.” (CBS)

Nikita (“Innocence”) – Michael, Nikita and the team must rescue a young girl named Liza, who was brainwashed and held captive by a rogue Division agent; Alex is reminded of painful memories. Like the time she paid full price to see Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star. (The CW)
