Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Tuesday, March 5. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

The Flash (The CW, 8 p.m.): File this one in the “episode title’s enough for us” database. The Flash hasn’t always known what to do with its wackier rogues—the best Gorilla Grodd outing to date belongs to Legends Of Tomorrow, not the folks at S.T.A.R. Labs—but we’re more than willing to get our hopes up a bit about “King Shark vs. Gorilla Grodd.” How could you not? It’s King Shark and Gorilla Grodd, and they are in some sort of versus situation.

Don’t let us down, Flash.

Regular coverage

This Is Us (NBC, 9 p.m.)

Wild card

Drunk History (Comedy Central, 9 p.m., sixth season finale): Drunk History’s had a good run this season, and they’re wrapping things up with “Drunk Mystery II,Jerry O’Connell, special guest host Taran Killam, and Derek Waters dressed up like Unsolved Mysteries-era Robert Stack. 


Weird night on TV. Let’s do this.
