“Impractical Jokers Live: Nitro Circus Spectacular” (truTV 8:15pm) Ever since “Jackass” went off the air, drunk teenagers have precious few options for watching way-too-old-for-this guys embarrass and/or injure themselves on TV. Fortunately, the goofball hidden camera dudes at “Impractical Jokers” and the amateur stuntmen at “Nitro Circus” have joined forces for a live, two-hour special.

Feel free to freak out, if you like.
“People Magazine Investigates” (ID 7pm) Investigation Discovery, your “all murder all the time” network, invites the folks at People Magazine to drop by and dish on some of their favorite murderers and serial killers.
“Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party” (VH1 8pm) Famed homemaker Martha Stewart and dope-loving rap star Snoop Dogg prepare themed meals for celebrity guests in this quirky chat show. ... I’m guessing whoever came up with this idea was stoned at the time.
“The 2016 SNL Election Special” (KOB-4 9pm) This 2016 presidential election has basically been Hell on Earth for everyone. But at least we got some choice sketches from “Saturday Night Live” this season. Here they are, all wrapped up in a pretty package.

“Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going To Clean Up This Sh*t?” (Showtime 9pm) At least we can go down laughing.
