Thursday Night Football

The Green Bay Packers are taking on the San Francisco 49ers tonight in Thursday Night Football. Tonight’s game will be played from Levi’s Stadium in California, but like other games this season, will not allow fans to be in the stands.

Watch at 8pm EST on FOX

B Positive

Silicon Valley star Thomas Middleditch is starring in B Positive, which airs its first episode tonight. The premise of the show is that a divorced father finds out he needs a kidney donor, but the donor he finds “is the last person he ever would’ve imagined.”

The Bradshaw Bunch

Terry Bradshaw’s reality show, The Bradshaw Bunch, is airing a new episode tonight. Tonight Terry and Tammy offer to buy Lacey and Noah a restaurant as a way to entice them to move to Texas. Rachael also plays a prank on Terry as part of her way of introducing a new man to the family. It’s also Terry’s 72nd birthday on the show this week, so we’ll get to take part in some of the celebrations.

The First 48

They say the first 48 hours after a crime is committed are the most important in terms of collective evidence, especially if that crime is something like a murder or a kidnapping.  Tonight kicks off a new season of The First 48 on A&E.  On tonight's episode, a man calls 911 to say his girlfriend killed herself; however, the evidence seems to point to something else.

Watch at 9pm EST on A&E

Match Game

Alec Baldwin is hosting a new episode of Match Game tonight. It's also the show's season finale. Tonight Horatio Sanz, Marilu Henner, Michael Colter, Ali Wentworth, Justin Long, and Drea de Matteo are on the celebrity panel.

Watch at 10pm EST on ABC

This Old House

If you’re still reeling from Tuesday’s election night, or the pandemic, or all the other stuff going on in our country right now, may I humbly suggest you check out an episode or two of This Old House. The show has become a staple in our house while we’re making breakfast during the weekends and is surprisingly cathartic. Today there’s a new episode of Ask This Old House where they take on water features. Will it be action-packed? Probably not. But it could be a solid moment of zen in a hectic world.
