1) “What We Do in the Shadows” season-opener, 10 p.m., FX. After decades of stagnant lives in Staten Island, these vampires suddenly changed everything in the season-finale. Nadja left for London … her husband Laszlo stayed behind to care for the being that sprang from the late Colin’s chest … Nandor visited his homeland … and Guillermo (shown here) was shipped in a box. Now things return to abnormal ,in a weird and very funny opener.
2) “Holey Moley” season-finale, 8 p.m., ABC. This miniature-golf show started the summer way too early, on May 2; now it also ends early. First, there’s one more elimination round; then the two survivors go for the championship. Kermit the Frog – who was there for the opener – returns to the broadcast booth, with Rob Riggle and Joe Tessitore. Miss Piggy also seeks attention.
3) “America Outdoors,” 9 p.m., PBS. Martin Black neatly fits most images of Idaho. He’s a quiet cowboy whose ranch has been in the family for 150 years. But in this interesting hour, we also meet others – young immigrants, learning about nature … a scholar (with a doctorate degree) who works with his Shoshone tribe to preserve the salmon supply … and a fishing enthusiast who became a pilot so she could reach all of her favorite spots.
4) “Glory” (1989), 8 p.m., Showtime, or “Tbe Best Years of Our Lives” (1946), 8 p.m. ET, Turner Classic Movies. These much-praised films offered fresh views of war and its legacy. “Glory” views the Civil War’s heroic all-Black unit; beautifully crafted, it won Oscars for sight (cinematography) and sound and for Denzel Washington in support. “Best Years” follows three veterans returning home; it won seven Oscars, including best picture.
5) ALSO: Two more ABC shows wrap up tonight, at 9 (“The Chase”) and 10 (“Who Do You Believe?). Debuting is “Edge of the Earth,” at 9 p.m. on HBO, a four-part series with elite athletes tackling global challenges. And at 10, PBS’ “The Great Muslim American Road Trip” has an amiable hour, the second of three. Subjects range from Muslim jazz greats (Art Blakey, Etta James, Max Roach, John Coltrane) to Mary, Jesus’ mother, who is praised often in the Koran.
