Magic is murder. At least it is for three old-school magicians (Barry Bostwick, John Rubenstein, Richard Libertini) living in a small town — bitter that they have been replaced by flashier, younger illusionists. But one of them attempts a comeback by making an unwise deal with the devil to acquire real magical powers, but he discovers there's a high price to pay for it. — Tim Holland

Hardcore Boneheads probably believe this is the Greatest Show on Earth already, but it gets a chance to prove it on its new night when Brennan and Booth go undercover as a circus act to investigate the deaths of performing twins. While it's tempting to say they'll be working without a net, they're actually a knife-throwing duo called Buck and Wanda Moosejaw (wait till you see their RV!), and the list of suspects includes the traveling company's ringmaster (Andy Richter). A second episode follows at 9 pm/ET. — Joe Friedrich

My Name Is Earl
8 pm/ET NBC
Last week, a joyless Joy was unceremoniously rejected during an audition for a reality show starring Erik Estrada. Her subsequent hissy fit---televised to the nation — involved beating the bleep out of host Brian Dunkleman, which in turn exposed Darnell to millions of viewers, which in turn blew his witness-protection cover. In tonight's conclusion, Darnell packs up the family, ditches town and assumes a new identity, all to elude the shadowy forces out to kill him. In response, Catalina, Earl and Randy team together to locate them. Erik Estrada guest stars as himself. — Dean Maurer
