Monday TV: Finding Atlantis Again

Atlantis_Found_About_the_Series-ABIf you’ve been to the Greek island of Santorini, you might think it’s paradise. But according to geologist Martin Pepper, it might be something else — where the most famous lost city may have been. He makes the case on the two hour “Atlantis Found” (History, 9 p.m.), suggesting a volcanic eruption there may have doomed the ancient city once described by Plato.

Things get a little grim on “Fargo” (FX, 10 p.m.), still the best thing on TV this fall.

Having seen the pilot twice, I’m interested to see where the musical comedy “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (The CW, 8 p.m.) is going.

Paula Deen is definitely next in line for elimination on “Dancing with the Stars” (ABC, 9 p.m.). Olivia Newton-John is guest judge and Leah Remini takes over for co-host Erin Andrews, off to do post season baseball.

Tyler gets a new girlfriend on “Life in Pieces” (CBS, 8:30 p.m.). I can hardly remember which new show it is either (it’s the “Modern Family” like one with Dianne Weist and James Brolin).

Having no superhero in the story, “Scorpion” (CBS, 9 p.m.) goes on the set of a superhero movie.

“I’ll Have What Phil’s Having” (PBS, 10 p.m., check local listings) goes to Hong King for century old eggs.

Ice skating is on the roster tonight on “Gigi Does It” (IFC, 10:30 p.m.).

Stealing art leads to murder on a new “Castle” (ABC, 10 p.m.).

Damian Szifron’s Oscar nominated “Wild Tales” (Starz, 10 p.m.) makes its premium cable debut.

The salute to David Niven on Turner Classic Movies continues with the 1956 epic “Around the World in 80 Days” (8 p.m.) followed by “My Man Godfrey” (11:15 p.m.), “The Moon is Blue” (1 a.m.), “Bonjour Tristesse” (3 a.m.) and “The Toast of New Orleans” (4:45 a.m.).

Game three of the American League Championship Series moves across the border with Kansas City at Toronto (Fox Sports 1, 8 p.m.).

Monday Night Football has Giants at Philadelphia (ESPN, 8:15 p.m.).

In hockey, it’s San Jose at Rangers (NHL, 7 p.m.).

Playing preseason basketball: Dallas at Cleveland (NBA, 7 p.m.) and Portland at Lakers (NBA, 10:30 p.m.).
