Wednesday TV: Vice Hopefuls Under Glass

Mike Pence is all for walls except apparently when it’s a plexiglass one between him and Sen. Kamala Harris, who he’ll face in Salt Lake City in the one scheduled Vice Presidential Debate (ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CSPAN, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, 9 p.m.). It was still a bone of contention before the debate begins, at a time when Pence was in recent close contact to the nation’s most famous person sick with COVID. Still, the debate is almost certain to be more civil than last week’s rabid Trump performance. But it might be weird. Not only will Pence be on stage with a woman who is not his wife, he’ll be there with two. Susan Page of USA Today is moderator. 

Adam Sandler and Julie Bowen star in a new holiday movie “Hubie Halloween” (Netflix, streaming) that just might give David S. Pumpkins a run for his money. 

The CW gets help from Europe to fill its schedule this season with the new Italian/English production “Devils” (CW, 8 p.m.), which boasts an American star — Patrick Dempsey from “Grey’s Anatomy” as a kingpin in international finance in London amid a largely Italian cast.

The fall of a sports talk host to gambling is retold in the documentary “Wild Card: The Downfall of a Radio Loudmouth” (HBO, 9 p.m.). 

The new two night miniseries “Doctor Who: The Faceless Ones” (BBC America, 8 p.m.) uses the found audio to fourth season of the long-running show in 1967 when Patrick Troughton was the Doctor, that has been newly animated. Three episodes run tonight; the concluding three are on Thursday. 

Three tales from Clive Baker’s book anthology is made into a new film, “Books of Blood” (Hulu, streaming) with Anna Friel, Britt Robertson and Rafi Gavron.
