1) “The Masked Singer,” 8 and 9 p.m., Fox. When the World Series went seven games, it wiped out two Wednesdays for Fox, creating confusion. Fox scheduled “Masked Singer” and “Almost Family” for tonight, then detoured. “Almost” (a good show) will sit out for its third straight week, so “Masked” can double up. Things starts with a terrific performance by “Rottweiler” and an interesting one by “Ladybug”(shown here) … whom Jenny McCarthy promptly proclaims “the Lady Gaga of ladybugs.”
2) “Misery,” 7 p.m., Showtime; and/or “Castle Rock,” Hulu. It’s a busy night for Annie Wilkes. On Hulu (played by Lizzy Kaplan), she’s a young-ish mom working at the creepy Castle Rock hospital. On Showtime, she’s older and bitter. When an author (James Caan) is injured near her, she nurses him back to health … and forces him to revise his next book. Kathy Bates won an Academy Award as Annie.
3) “Nancy Drew,” 9 p.m., CW. Will someone please tell people that Halloween is over? Alongside “Castle Rock” and “American Horror Story” (10 p.m. on FX), even Nancy is battling the supernatural; her friend is possessed by Tiffany’s spirit.
4) “Modern Family,” 9 p.m., ABC. Here’s a plot that worked well for Archie Bunker, four decades aqo: While Haley and Dylan are away, Gloria wants to sneak off and secretly have their twins baptized.
5) Documentaries, cable. It’s time for some journeys through history. At 8 p.m. ET, Turner Classic Movies views some of the great cinematographers. At 9, HBO eyes 85 years of the Apollo Theater in Harlem. Also at 9, PBS’ “Nova” goes back much further, to the Dead Sea Scrolls.
