What’s On: ‘Major Crimes’ Begins its Final Season, Halloween on ‘This Is Us,’ Game 6 of World Series

A critical checklist of notable Tuesday TV:

Major Crimes (9/8c, TNT): The long-running crime drama, which spun off after seven seasons of TNT’s signature series The Closer, will take a new approach to telling its mystery stories as it begins its sixth and final season. The closing act of Major Crimes will comprise three multi-episode arcs, beginning with the disappearance of three 15-year-old boys from a Catholic school field trip. Distracting Commander Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell) during the investigation: evidence suggesting that arch-villain Phillip Stroh (Billy Burke) may be heading back to Los Angeles, signaling a climactic showdown.

This Is Us (9/8c, NBC): What could go wrong when Jack (Mile Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) take their 10-year-old kids trick-or-treating? We’re betting plenty.

She eventually positioned herself near a merchandise table that was offering t-shirts for 25 bucks and bobbleheads for not much less.

It was the midway point of IDCon, a sort of Comic Con for true crime TV buffs, and the woman’s pink shirt had the convention’s logo emblazoned across its center. This was a real fan, I thought. I’d been talking with a bunch of these people all afternoon, trying to understand why roughly 200 of them were compelled to set aside much of their Saturday listening to B-list television personalities talk about murderous entertainment.

I introduced myself, but just when I was about to turn on my voice
