“Glee” (8 p.m., Fox). A special Halloween episode where the kids perform their versions of “Rocky Horror Picture Show” tunes. Barry Bostwick and Meat Loaf guest-star.
“Raising Hope” (9 and 9:30 p.m., Fox). Hmmm, back-to-back episodes of “Hope” instead of a new episode of “Running Wilde”? “Wilde” hasn’t officially been canceled yet, but come on, read between the lines. In the first “Hope,” Jimmy goes to a Halloween party with Sabrina while Maw-Maw goes trick-or-treating. In the second one, Jimmy receives a bunch of prison videos of his now-executed baby mama.
“Sons of Anarchy” (10 p.m., FX). SAMCRO puts the capital T back in The Troubles, as the gang lands in Belfast and all hell breaks loose. Recording alert: This is a special 90-minute episode. And as a special bonus, listen for a new Celtic version of the theme song.
“Nova” (8 p.m., PBS). A look at the effort to rescue those Chilean miners. You know the story, unless you’ve been trapped in a hole for a few months. Oh, wait . . .
“30 for 30” (8 p.m., ESPN2). “Fernando Nation,” a documentary about the phenomenon that was Dodgers pitcher Fernando Valenzuela in the early ’80s. (He was a Dodger, so I always hated him.)
“Dead Set” (9 p.m., IFC). Patrick and Pippa are trapped in the green room as is dawns on them that they’re living “Dawn of the Dead.”
“Parenthood” (10 p.m., NBC). I need to follow my own advice and start watching this again. It’s too good to be pulling in such low ratings (it drew its fewest viewers ever last week), and if things don’t change soon, it won’t be around much longer.
“Caprica” (10 p.m., Syfy). Tauron violence spills over onto Caprica, Amanda infiltrates Clarice’s home and Daniel tries to recreate Zoe’s avatar. Sounds like this is another one I need to start watching again.

The NBA season tips off tonight, and TNT has a doubleheader: First it’s Celtics vs. Heat (4 p.m.,), with a newly green Shaq facing the new Axis of Evil, followed by Lakers vs. Rockets (7:30 p.m.), with Kobe & Co. against a for-now-still-healthy Yao Ming & Co.
“Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time” (10 p.m., Comedy Central). Why is it seemingly impossible to make a funny sketch comedy show? And how has Judd Apatow and his crew not come up with something yet?
