You don’t have to choose politics or hip hop tonight. While the vice presidential candidates debate and BET gives out awards to hip hop stars, there are still a few scripted TV shows premiering on Tuesday, Oct. 4.

“The Mindy Project” Season 5 debuts on Hulu. At the end of last season, Danny (Chris Messina) couldn’t gather the courage to tell Mindy (Mindy Kaling) that he is getting married, and they hooked up. However, with the invitation to his wedding already in the mail, she’s going to be in for a shock. Plus, after hooking up with Danny and hearing Jody (Garret Dillahunt) confess his love for her, Mindy will have a big decision to make. 

Speaking of shocking, Barry (Grant Gustin) is going to have his mind blown when he realizes the full effects of saving his mother’s life in “The Flash” Season 3 premiere. He has created an alternate reality known as Flashpoint. While fans are excited to see the comic book storyline come to life, Barry is going to be panicked. Though his parents are back, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) is suddenly rich and uncaring, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Iris (Candice Patton) aren’t close to him and Kid Flash, also known as Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale), has replaced Barry as Central City’s hero. It doesn’t look like the Flash will be able to fix the alternate universe any time soon. It’ll affect “Arrow,” “Supergirl” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” this fall.

After “The Flash,” “No Tomorrow” premieres. The show follows a relatively unimpressive woman, Evie Covington (Tori Anderson), who meets a cute guy, Xavier Holliday (Joshua Sasse), in her neighborhood. They get along well, and it seems like something is finally going right for Evie. The problem is that Xavier genuinely believes the apocalypse is coming in eight months. He is living life to the fullest and checking off items on his Apocalyst (his bucket list). For boring Evie, his carpe diem outlook might be just what she needs.
