What to Watch Tonight: How I Met Your Mother, Sleepy Hollow, and "56 Up" on P.O.V.

What to watch on Monday, October 14...

7pm, Cartoon Network
Adventure Time
Much like Sammy Hagar, Marceline needs red—which is in dangerously short supply in the cavern where she, Finn, and Jake find themselves trapped in “Red Starved.” Then in “Sky Witch,” a decidedly more crimson-nourished Marceline is on the trail of the titular spellcaster.

8pm, NBC
The Voice
Cher, Miguel, Ed Sheeran, and Ryan Tedder each pair up with one of the coaches as the battle rounds get underway.

8pm, The CW
Hart of Dixie
Lemon’s dalliance with Carter Covington injects hijinx into a friendly dinner party, threatening to implode her charade with Wade. Meanwhile in “Friends in Low Places,” George’s poor judgment regarding Lynly puts his friendship with Lavon at risk.

8pm, Fox
In “The Lady on the List,” the investigation of a cancer-afflicted high school principal’s murder gets a boost when the team turns up a video of the deceased clocking former Ultimate Fighting Champ Chuck Liddell right in the piehole. In personal affairs, Brennan and Booth begin wedding preparations while Sweets frets that new technology may make him obsolete.

8pm, CBS
How I Met Your Mother
“The Poker Game” finds Robin at odds with Barney’s mother and brother, prompting Lily to help Barney navigate those treacherous shoals. Elsewhere, different philosophies about wedding gifts and thank-you notes stir debate between Ted and Marshall, as if to remind us all that, yes, they really are going to wring an entire season out of these nuptials, thank you very much.

8:30pm, CBS
2 Broke Girls
The show that never met a bawdy pun it didn’t love to force moves into the “family hour,” and just in time for an episode titled “And the Group Head.” Perhaps that’s a reference to cappuccino foam, since the ladies take barista jobs to train themselves in the ways of their new cappuccino maker. But still, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

9pm, Fox
Sleepy Hollow
After Abbie and Ichabod meet an unidentified young lad in “John Doe,” they quickly realize the child is a harbinger of some seriously spooky mojo. Not that that took a whole lot of detective work on their part, since in this town spooky mojo is regularly foretold by a strong breeze, a diet soda, or Wednesday.

10pm, PBS
“56 Up” is the eighth installment in the Peabody-winning British documentary series Seven Up. After profiling a group of seven-year-olds in 1964, the project has checked in on the subjects every seven years. Now age 56, the 14 subjects—including one who’s returning for the first time since “28 Up”—reflect on their recent life changes, challenges, and triumphs.

10pm, NBC
The Blacklist
This week’s archvillain, “The Stewmaker,” has disappeared hundreds of people in his career. His latest victim may be a witness in a case against a drug lord—which puts fellow witness Liz in the crosshairs. In other crimefighting developments, Red and Ressler are forced to team up and realize they’re one ampersand away from a dynamite name for a vaudeville act.

10pm, ABC
Suspected of murder, a young woman takes hostages at gunpoint in “Number One Fan.” She refuses to negotiate with anybody but Castle, because she knows how shit gets done in the world of long-running network TV star vehicles.

10pm, TCM
The Story of Film: An Odyssey
Foreign cinema is at the forefront in the seventh installment, “Shock of the New, Modern Filmmaking in Western Europe (1957–1964).” Federico Fellini and Ingmar Bergman are among the auteurs examined.

WHAT!? Logo Documentaries
“Bronies: Adult Fans of My Little Pony” spotlights BronyCon and follows some of the adult and young adult men who defy gender stereotypes and pour their passion into a cartoon primarily marketed to adolescent girls. Mock if you wish, but remember that kindness is one of the Elements of Harmony, and you don’t want to go knocking those out of whack and endangering the entire realm, now do you?
