On TV tonight
NCIS, 8 p.m., CBS It's episode 200! Mark Harmon doesn't look an episode over 175.
SERIES PREMIERE Emily Owens, M.D., 9 p.m., CW It's like Grey's Anatomy meets Ally McBeal? Did we write "like"? We meant "is."
MINISERIES PREMIERE The Men Who Built America, 9 p.m., History An eight-part series about five rich guys — Cornelius Vanderbilt, John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, J.P. Morgan and Henry Ford — who built that. Not for altruistic or patriotic reasons, mind you, but because it made them filthy, stinking rich.
Presidential Debate, 9 p.m., major networks A town hall meeting that Obama needs to ace or else he'll be eviscerated with guthooks on stage by Andrew Sullivan. Romney, meanwhile, needs to remember to keep working out this new personality circuitry he had installed last debate.
SERIES PREMIERE Underemployed, 10 p.m., MTV A comedy about recent grads who can't find work in their chosen fields. Poor little lambs. Gen Xers may remember it as the movie Reality Bites.
