The prime-time TV grid is on hiatus in print. You can find more TV coverage at:


Survivor Jeff Probst returns as host for a new season of the unscripted series, which was shot last May and June. 8 p.m. CBS

Chicago Med Dr. Scott (Guy Lockard) suspects that a patient may be a drug dealer. Also, Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) must decide how to spend his whistleblower settlement in this new episode. 8 p.m. NBC


The Flash This superhero action hit returns from hiatus on a new night, picking things up pretty much where they left off as Bart and Nora (guest stars Jordan Fisher and Jessica Parker Kennedy) return from their parents’ vow-renewal ceremony. Thanks to fissures in the timeline, things are not exactly as they left them. 8 p.m. The CW

Let Fox go noir (“Gotham”) and ABC get tense (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) with their prequels and superhero-adjacency; the CW is sticking with more straightforward costumed heroics.
