Watch this: TV week of Nov. 11

MONDAY

How I Met Your Mother, 8 p.m., CBS

This show has been in dire straits the past few weeks. Too much time spent in Farhampton, too much of Marshall's ridiculously long road trip, too many episodes without the Mother. It needs an injection of some awesome. And who better to do that than Mr. Walter White himself? Bryan Cranston returns as Ted's old boss Hammond Druthers. We can only imagine what he's doing in the context of Barney and Robin's wedding, but hey, that Cranston charm can carry this nonsense a loooong way.

TUESDAY

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., 8 p.m., ABC

The team is in the dark about some dangerous secrets, so Coulson must work the system to keep Ward and Fitz safe during a classified mission that could end in "tragedy." You mean, like, real tragedy? Or the same safe, faux-tragedy that happens every week on this show? Stakes, people. Get to know them.

WEDNESDAY

Modern Family, 9 p.m., ABC

Phil and Claire are planning surprises for each other for their 20th anniversary. In a classic sitcom screwup in which everything would be okay if two people just took a second to have a conversation, Phil's is supposed to happen at the annual school fair, while Claire's is at home. You'd think after 20 years of marriage they could coordinate better than that.

THURSDAY

Scandal, 10 p.m., ABC

Finally, the Mellie-centric episode we've all been waiting for! In tonight's ep, appropriately titled "Everything's Coming Up Mellie", the first lady decides to do a news interview to recover from the public backlash of the previous year. Sounds wise, Mel, just make sure to stay away from that hooch.

FRIDAY

Styled to Rock, 8 p.m., Bravo

In this new episode, designers are tasked with creating a sexy club look for Miley Cyrus with a limited supply of materials. Not sure if you've all noticed, but Miley's definitely okay with wearing a limited supply of anything. Don't think that'll be a problem.

Great Performances, 9 p.m., PBS

Just thought we should make everyone aware that Hugh Jackman will be gamboling about on a stage on PBS this weekend in this 70th anniversary celebration of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma!. Jackman stars as handsome cowboy Curly, because of course he does. You're welcome.

SUNDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Almost Human, 8 p.m., Fox

Fox pushed back the premiere date for this series, so instead of starting a few weeks ago, its first two eps are being rolled out tonight and tomorrow night. The reason? The channel is hoping all of you tuning in for football on Sunday will stick around for this new science fiction show from J.J. Abrams in which Star Trek's Karl Urban is a cop in 2048 and Michael Ealy is his robot partner. There are definitely worse ways to spend a Sunday evening. You know, like watching more football.
