If you’re paying for premium cable, tonight’s the night to get your money’s worth.
“Rickey Gervais Show” (9 p.m., HBO). How much more interesting would your life be if you could hang out with Karl Pilkington, if only for a day?
“Life and Times of Tim” (9:30 p.m., HBO). Tim’s Halloween costume doesn’t get the expected reaction. And Stu uses his mad ping-pong skillz to woo chicks.
“Party Down” (10 p.m., Starz). Season premiere. The most dysfunctional caterers on the planet are back for another season. Last year, this was the funniest show that you (probably) didn’t watch. Check it out this time around, it’s a ton of snarky, twisted fun with possibly the best ensemble cast of any sitcom on TV, even without Jane Lynch.
“Gravity” (10:30 p.m., Starz). Series premiere. A new sitcom about a support group for folks who attempted suicide. The setup sounds a lot like the Nick Hornby novel “A Long Way Down.” Could be darkly funny, could be awful, but it should at least be worth a look.
“Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” (9 p.m., ABC). In the season finale, Jamie returns to Huntington, W. Va., and finds that — surprise! — they’re back to their bad eating habits. So he punishes them by making them listen to a Rascal Flatts concert.
“Smokejumpers” (10 p.m., CMT). A series about firefighters who parachute into wildfires. I’m a sucker for this type of show.
Catch a score
Giants vs. Cardinals (7 p.m., KNTV). Now that they’re back at home, can the Giants stop their slide and score a run or two?
NFL Draft (4 p.m., ESPN2). Day 2 picks up with the second and third rounds. Zzzzzzz.
The late-night musical acts: Creed is on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and Hanson is on “Late Show with David Letterman.” Good lord, aren’t the ’90s dead yet?
