Friends of the People (10:30 p.m., truTV) - Raleigh’s Jennifer Bartels, a graduate of Millbrook High and ECU, is one of the stars of this new sketch comedy show, which Entertainment Weekly gave a grade of A-. There’s also a viewing party tonight at Fox & Hound in North Hills from 9 p.m. to midnight. Check it out!
Also on tonight . . .
Finding Your Roots (8 p.m., UNC-TV) - Tonight, Nas learns about his slave ancestors, Angela Bassett discovers that her family history includes an emancipation story, and Valerie Jarrett learns about the free people of color in her family’s past. I’m sure my family history is boring, but after watching this show, I’m dying for one of those DNA genealogy tests.
Marry Me (9 p.m., NBC) - Annie and Jake decide to create a haunted house in their apartment for Halloween, but a super-mom derails their plans.
Never miss a local story.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (9 p.m., ABC) - Hydra attacks the United Nations and frames the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents for the crime.
30 for 30: Brian and The Boz (9 p.m., ESPN) - The latest in this sports doc series chronicles Oklahoma Sooners star Brian Bosworth’s days as “The Boz” under coach Barry Switzer. Directed by Thaddeus D. Matula.
Frontline: The Rise of ISIS (10 p.m., UNC-TV) - The rise of the terror group ISIS is examined in this new Frontline episode, which includes a look at problems that occurred in Iraq after the U.S. withdrawal.
Sons of Anarchy (10 p.m., FX) - A traitor is suspected as SAMCRO searches for missing (and mangled) Bobby.
Benched (10:30 p.m., USA) - Eliza Coupe (my beloved “Happy Endings”) and Maria Bamford (“Arrested Development”) star in this new comedy about a corporate lawyer (Coupe) finds work as a public defender after an epic meltdown (which sounds a little like the first season of HBO’s “Enlightened,” perhaps minus the stint in rehab between job changes). With Bamford and Coupe, it’s bound to be funny.
