Tuesday TV Picks: 'Happy Endings' on ABC
TV picks for Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2012, include the season-three premiere of "Happy Endings" on ABC; "NCIS" on CBS; and "Sons of Anarchy" on FX.
Tonight in Prime Time
Those fast-talking (and very funny) 30-something Chicago friends are back for a third season. Tonight's premiere features Penny (Casey Wilson) in a body cast, Dave and Alex (Zachary Knighton and Elisha Cuthbert) getting back together and a ventriloquist dummy named Sin-Brad. It's simply a-mah-zing. Season premiere, 9 p.m. Tuesday on ABC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
