Please welcome the worst new network show in years, with the ugliest aspects of every women-threatening CBS procedural into one series. Kidnapping? Stalking? Setting women on fire? It’s all here, in a format known as network TV thriller. Kevin Williamson, creator of the “Scream” series, is probably kicking himself that he didn’t include beheadings as well. All that and Dylan McDermott too starring in “Stalker” (CBS, 10 p.m.), whose sole faint hope, Maggie Q, doesn’t have a chance.
Earlier, Jennifer Love Hewitt joins the cast of “Criminal Minds” (CBS, 9 p.m.) as the 10th season begins in California, where victims there have been made unidentifiable.
Part two of a three part series based on penguin spy cameras on “Nature” (PBS, 8 p.m., check local listings) concentrates on the newborn.
How they’ve grown: Alex is getting a college tour on “Modern Family” (ABC, 9 p.m.).
And the sex talk is a problem, too, on “Black-ish” (ABC, 9:30 p.m.).
Not surprising that the morning TV appearance by Rayna on “Nashville” (ABC, 10 p.m.) comes on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” where actual person Luke Bryan is also on board.
