1) “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” (1986), 8 p.m., CBS. Maybe this is the time to settle back with a fun film. CBS — which has temporarily revived its Sunday-night movies — has this popular tale, with Matthew Broderick (shown here) giving himself a personal vacation. Freeform has its usual lighe Halloween films and TNT has two 2018 films — “Ocean’s 8” at 5:30 p.m. and “Crazy Rich Asians” at 8; both have so-so stories, redeemed by a bright, breezy look and feel.
2) Bart-less baseball. This was supposed to be the night “The Simpsons” had its annual delight, “Treehouse of Horror.” Alas, that’s being bumped (see separate story) by the seventh and final game of the National League play-offs. The winner heads to the World Series on Tuesday, facing the Tampa Bay Rays. You can catch some previous “Treehouse” tales, however; they rerun today, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on Freeform and from noon to 5 p.m. on FXX.
3) “The Trouble With Maggie Cole” debut and “Flesh and Blood,” 8 and 9 p.m., PBS. “Maggie” uses almost the full hour, before its real plot takes hold. It’s an amiable start in small-town England, but the actual plot defies credibility. The saving grace is the surprising relationship between Maggie and her non-judgmental husband. Then “Flesh” sets up next week’s jolting finale. As their own lives crumble, Vivien’s adult children worry about her planned trip to India with her new boyfriend.
4) “Supermarket Sweep” debut, 8 p.m., ABC. ABC will only have two new shows this fall … and the first is actually a reboot of a very old one. Back in 1965, people began racing around supermarkets, seeing who could sweep up the most value. That died after two years, was revived by Lifetime in 1990 and now by ABC, with a wild card: Leslie Jones, who was fiercely funny on “Saturday Night Live,” is the host. She’s followed by the openers of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” and “Card Sharks.”
5) ALSO: Two HBO series wrap up; it’s the season-finale of “Lovecraft Country” at 9 p.m. and the series finale of “The Vow” at 10. That’s on a big cable night that includes the “Top Gear” season-opener (8 p.m. ET, BBC America), two zombie shows (9 and 10:05 p.m. AMC) and the terrific “Fargo” series (10 p.m., FX).
