“Arrow: Year One” (8 p.m. on the CW)
Never heard of Oliver Queen? Meet “Arrow,” the hottest new superhero, in this special recap of season 1 before season 2 airs next week. If you’re already hooked on the Stephen Amell series, tune in for a special sneak peek at what’s ahead in the new season.
“Super Fun Night” (9:30 p.m. on ABC)
In a last-minute switchup, ABC announced at the end of September that instead of airing the pilot episode of “Super Fun Night” it would air the second episode, “Anything For Love.” In “Anything For Love,” Kimmie (Rebel Wilson) tries to get her friends to branch out and try something they’ve never done before. But when she finds out their next “super fun night” is at a piano bar she’s a little hesitant. Why? Because of her fear of singing in public.
Meanwhile, Kendall (Kate Jenkinson) “can’t understand why Richard (Kevin Bishop) and Kimmie are friends … and plans to do something about it.”
“Ironside” (10 p.m. on NBC)
In the pilot episode of this new cop drama, viewers will meet New York detective Robert Ironside (Blair Underwood). In a wheelchair after being shot in the line of duty, Ironside and his team “solve the city's most difficult and notorious crimes.”
“Top Chef” (10 p.m. on Bravo)
Welcome “Top Chef” to New Orleans for its 11th season. Meet the new chef’s competing for the title during the premiere episode.
“A Young Doctor’s Notebook” (10 p.m. on Ovation)
“Mad Men’s” Jon Hamm and “Harry Potter’s” Daniel Radcliffe star in this new black comedy series “based on the memoirs of a young doctor’s life in a remote village in early 20th century Russia.”
According to Ovation, the story is told through the eyes of an older version of the doctor … who is now opiate-addicted.
