Monday TV: Monsters and Such

In-laws may be challenging, but does that mean we should call them “Monster In-Laws” (A&E , 10 and 10:30 p.m.)? It’s a little misleading, especially a week from “Halloween” (AMC, 8 p.m.) and “Halloween III: Season of the Witch” (AMC, 10 p.m.).

In the case of the season opener, Anthony, wearing a backwards baseball cap, right, says he made the worst mistake of his life going into the restaurant business with his father-in-law, Richie, left. Wife Kim is left in the middle. Because people can’t handle their own yelling disagreements, experts are brought in: trail lawyer and relationship expert Mel Robbins and counseling and human development expert Tom Kersting.

Earlier, the fifth season of “Hoarders” (A&E, 9 p.m.) spotlights a son of famous people who has cluttered his apartment so tightly, he has to sleep outside.

A missing mom from Bogota, N.J., is the subject of the season premiere of “Disappeared” (Investigation Discovery,10 p.m.).

Broadway is a little more fitting theme for “Dancing with the Stars” (ABC, 8 p.m.). Kristin Chenoweth shows up to help.

Joe Manganiello – Alcide from “True Blood” – pops up on “Two and a Half Men” (CBS, 9 p.m.).

The remaining contestants on “The Sing-Off” (NBC, 8 p.m.) try their hands on hip-hop.

It sounds like a hoary old sitcom premise: The duo on “2 Broke Girls” (CBS, 8:30 p.m.) get a Murphy bed.

Jonathan appears on “The New Dick Cavett Show” and confronts his enemy on a new “Bored to Death” (HBO, 9 p.m.). Then Amy tries to find a more fulfilling job, at a homeless shelter, on “Enlightened” (HBO, 9:30 p.m.).

There’s Yom Kippur chaos on “Gossip Girl” (The CW, 8 p.m.).

It’s a spa get-together on a new episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (Bravo, 9 p.m.).

It’s Baltimore at Jacksonville on “Monday Night Football” (ESPN, 8:30 p.m.). It’s game 5 in the World Series (Fox, 7:30 p.m.), with St. Louis at Texas. The series is tied 2-2.

The classic horror series on Turner Classic Movies continues with “Carnival of Souls” (8 p.m.),, “Night at the Movies: The Horrors of Stephen King” (9:30 p.m.), “Dementia 13” (10:30 p.m.), “Strait-Jacket” (midnight), “Pit and the Pendulum” (1:45 a.m.), “The Masque of the Red Death” (3:15 a.m.) and “The Devil’s Bride” (5 a.m.).
