What to Watch Tonight: Ra's al-Ghul's Goons Arrive on Arrow, Witches Be Burnin' on AHS: Coven, and It's Always Sunny Wraps Up Season 9

What to watch on Wednesday, November 6...

Mother Up!
Eva Longoria stars as a down-on-her-luck ex-music industry player now consigned to motherhood and suburbia. The animated comedy launches its first two installments today and will roll out a new episode in each of the next four weeks, with the remaining seven scheduled for January.

8pm, ABC
The 47th Annual CMA Awards
Veteran hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood helm the celebration of country music’s finest (Nonfiction Division only—sorry, Juliette Barnes). Slated performers at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena include Taylor Swift, Vince Gill, and Alison Krauss.

8pm, The CW
In “League of Assassins,” the truth about Black Canary comes out after she and Oliver are targeted by Ra’s al-Ghul’s lethal cabal. Meanwhile, Moira is given the chance to avoid death row by pleading guilty, a deal that distresses Thea; and Oliver fumes after Laurel joins the team that's prosecuting his mother.

8pm, NBC
“The Patriot Act” turns the spotlight on parent-child affairs, as Charlie and Rachel bond while Neville and Jason traverse a rockier road. The logline also refers to Miles aiding the group by doing “what he does best,” which I assume means growing a bodacious mustache.

9pm, NBC
Law & Order: SVU
Tony Award-winner Billy Porter guest-stars in “Dissonant Voices” as a beloved music teacher and reality show star whose squeaky-clean rep is soiled by sexual abuse allegations.

9pm, The CW
The Tomorrow People
Flouting the rules during a training exercise lands Stephen on the radar of Jedikiah’s shadowy superior, and breaking his Homecoming date with Astrid lands him on her shit list. Elsewhere in “All Tomorrow’s Parties,” the Day-After-Todayers are determined to attend a hootenanny in the world above, like all the other CW kids get to.

10pm, CBS
This is heavy, Doc: Marty McFly’s mom teams up with (one incarnation of) his girlfriend when Lea Thompson guest-stars as a CSI-seasoned defense criminalist alongside series regular Elisabeth Shue in “Under a Cloud.” Even heavier: Greg Sanders accused of framing a man for murder seven years prior, possibly because Flea called him chicken.

10pm, FX
American Horror Story: Coven
Zoe channels a new power to repel Marie Laveau’s undead assault in “Burn, Witch. Burn!” Meanwhile, Fiona and Myrtle vie for Coven leadership, and the past haunts Madame LaLaurie.

10pm, Comedy Central
South Park
“Ginger Cow” finds Cartman inadvertently ushering in world peace and harmony. If it’s any consolation to the lad, he had malice in his heart when he did what he done did.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
After nine years of capering, it’s fair to say that the Paddy’s crew has grown older, wiser, and more mature. That’s why, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, “The Gang Squashes Their Beefs” and patches things up with their enemies/victims/basically everyone they’ve ever come into contact with. Tune in for a heartwarming affirmation of the human condition and the power of forgiveness, shan’t you?

10:30pm, FXX
The League
In “The Near Death Flex-perience,” a vision of Greg Jennings opens Kevin’s eyes, but also puts him on Jenny’s bad side. Elsewhere, a patient’s electronic voice box sounds disturbingly familiar to Andre, and Taco’s new business offers a shave and a haircut for men’s kibbles and bits.
