What to watch on Monday, October 21...

7pm, Cartoon Network
Adventure Time
Finn, Jake, and company don their mechanics’ hats in “We Fixed a Truck,” but the repairs are complicated when BMO hears a sinister message over the radio. Then in “The Vault,” Jake and BMO delve into Finn’s psyche to put his sleepwalking to rest.

8pm, Fox
You are cordially invited to the wedding of Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan and Seeley Booth—as are Cyndi Lauper, Ryan O’Neal, Joanna Cassidy, and David Hornsby, though presumably all of them are being paid to appear in "The Woman in White." But can the Jeffersonianites keep their latest murder investigation under wraps to avoid distracting Brennan from her blushing-bride duties?

8pm, The CW
Hart of Dixie
In “Take This Job and Shove It,” Zoe's surreptitious return to medicine in Bluebell runs afoul of her contract. In other town happenings, Lemon attempts to defenestrate the head Belle, and Lavon enlists Brick’s help in courting a minor-league baseball team to play in town. Which of these stories will inspire the guest performance of indie folksters The Head and the Heart?

8pm, CBS
How I Met Your Mother
Ted must choose among three potential wedding dates in “Knight Vision,” and the question isn’t if this plotline will inspire a dating game show parody, but rather how much material the show will try to squeeze out of it. Elsewhere, Robin and Barney ruffle their minister’s collar, and Marshall finds out more about Daphne.

8:30pm, CBS
2 Broke Girls
Hybrid pastry concoctions take a bite out of the cupcake business in “And the Cronuts.” What’s a pair of entrepreneurial young dessert-slingers to do? Why, conjure up their own trendy treat: cake fries.

CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story
Drew Sidora, Lil’ Mama, and KeKe Palmer star as the R&B/hip-hop trio that became one of pop music’s most successful female groups in the 1990s. The biopic chronicles their rise to fame and fortune and the high-profile tragedies that followed.

9pm, The CW
Beauty and the Beast
“Liar, Liar” finds Cat and Vincent working at secret cross-purposes as they hunt down a bizarre beastie. Meanwhile, Tess calls Gabe’s motives into question, and Heather drops a truth bomb on Cat.

9:30pm, CBS
Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer stops by “Six Thousand Bootleg T-Shirts and a Prada Handbag,” in which it turns out that Christy’s new buddy has more than a few issues. Elsewhere, Bonnie struggles to overcome her self-centered disposition.

10pm, ABC
While investigating a particularly unseemly slaying, Castle and Beckett come upon a suspect who insists he has time-traveled from the future to forestall calamity. Could “Time Will Tell” be the episode that drastically reboots the series as a sweeping sci-fi epic?

10pm, NBC
The Blacklist
Not even Red knows what the team’s latest target, “The Courier,” looks like (although fans of Prison Break may recognize him as erstwhile escapee Robert Knepper). Yet as the middleman ferries a high-value package to an Iranian spy, Liz risks her own peril to thwart him.
