The Flash on The CW at 8:00pm ET.

This Is Us on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Second season fall finale.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Fox at 9:30pm ET.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on CBS at 10:00pm ET. One-hour presentation. I’m still surprised this is considered any kind of prime-time entertainment, but I know I’ve lost that particular culture war. Next up: Can we discuss if any of this is actually sexy? Not necessarily the weird angel wings and whatever, but while some of their regular underwear works for me, their lingerie tends to strike me as both too obvious and weirdly puritanical in nature. And, frankly, anything you can wear parading down a catwalk on CBS is probably not particularly sexy or daring for both censorship and logistical reasons. If your lingerie stays firmly covering all your bits as you stomp your way across a stage in four-inch stilettos, I’m a little impressed with the fit, but it doesn’t really scream “debauched night of passion.”

Drunk History on Comedy Central at 10:00pm ET. Christmas special! We have Ken Marino playing Teddy Roosevelt, which sounds delightful, but I wish they’d gotten Mallory Ortberg to write the script. While it wouldn’t be the most historically accurate version of Roosevelt it would be BY FAR the most entertaining. And Ken Marino would just kill it.
