Thursday TV: ‘So Help Me Todd’ from CBS

Skylar Astin plays a bumbling son who helps his lawyer mother investigate cases in the new light drama “So Help Me Todd” (CBS, 9 p.m.). Oscar-winner Marcia Gay Harden plays the mom. 

A number of popular network comedies begin their seasons tonight. The sleeper among them is “Welcome to Flatch” (Fox, 9 p.m.), the charming comedy which will feature Jaime Pressly in a new role this season, as a returning citizen.

More popular maybe is the second season start of “Ghosts” (CBS, 8:30 p.m.) with the innkeepers about to let in the first guests to their B&B. It comes alongside the sixth season premiere of “Young Sheldon” (CBS, 8 p.m.), which begins with a border dispute.

Also returning tonight is Mayim Bialik in “Call Me Kat” (Fox, 9:30 p.m.), who just happens to have fellow “Jeopardy!” host Ken Jennings on as guest star. 

The 2022 Billboard Latin Music Awards (Telemundo, Universo, 7 p.m.) honors some acts who have already transcended the category, chief among them Bad Buddy, up for 23 awards. Christina Aguilera and Nicky Jam will receive special awards. Performers include Elvis Crespo, Alejandro Guzman, Angela Aguilar, Calibre 50, Grupo Firme, Camilo and Carlos Vives. It’s being broadcast live from Coral Gables, Fla.; I’m wondering how it couldn’t have been affected by Hurricane Ian.

It’s still not October, but there’s a passel of Halloween cartoons from “Looney Tunes Cartoons” (HBO Max, streaming). Worse, broadcast TV is rerunning the 1993 “Hocus Pocus” (ABC, 9 p.m.) already.
