Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Sunday, October 15. All times are Eastern. “Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.” 

Top pick

Bob’s Burgers (Fox, 7:30 p.m.): Bob’s Burgers is back, so let’s see what’s going in everyone’s favorite fast food family, in an episode with a slightly scary title, “The Silence Of Louise”: “Louise teams up with Millie (guest voice Molly Shannon) when Mr. Frond’s therapy dolls are mysteriously attacked. Meanwhile, Teddy decides to get into the inspirational poster business.” Do Teddy’s efforts involve that “Hang In There” kitten? ’Cause that guy’s hilarious. Brianna Wellen is plenty inspirational all by herself.


Regular coverage

Mindhunter (Netflix)
The Simpsons (Fox, 8 p.m.)
Ghosted (Fox, 8:30 p.m.)
Star Trek: Discovery (CBS All Access, 8:30 p.m.)

Wild card

Riverdale (Netflix): The streaming gods are being good to us this fall TV season, enabling us to catch up on a variety of shows we might have missed the first go-around. For example, if you are behind on Riverdale, Netflix is here to help. You must check out The CW’s only successful debut of last season, a mix of Twin Peaks, The OC, and comic book malt-shop life. It doesn’t hurt that Cole Sprouse is a god-dang national treasure, and that Jughead and Betty are our favorite TV couple right now. So: Catch up on Netflix. Then: Check out our new A.V. Club Riverdale podcast, Dial M For Maple, with the delightful Marah Eakin and Cameron Scheetz. Then: Read LaToya Ferguson’s award-worthy Riverdale A.V. Club reviews. You’ll be caught up in no time! (The show’s second season airs Wednesday nights on The CW.)
