Center stage

I'd love to see "Fresh Off the Boat" (7:30 p.m.) do a crossover episode with its lead-in, "The Muppets" (7 p.m.), if only to watch Constance Wu slap the bacon out of self-centered Miss Piggy. Until that happens, we'll have to do with Shaquille O'Neal, who climbs aboard the "Boat" for a guest-star appearance. KSTP, Ch. 5

She's alive

When compiling a list of underrated TV actresses, don't forget Rose McIver, who brings plenty of pluck to her role as a brain-eating heroine in "iZombie," a hip procedural that captures the spirit of co-creator Rob Thomas' cult fave, "Veronica Mars." McIver, playing a zombie with heart, may look as pale as a ghost, but she exhibits plenty of human spirit in this lively performance. 8 p.m. WUCW, Ch. 23

Campaign trail leads here

In just a matter of weeks, "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" has become a prime destination for politicians, somewhat of a surprise considering the host's skewering of conservatives during his wildly successful run on Comedy Central. Up next: Bill Clinton, who will hopefully take a break from defending his wife to sit in with the band. 10:35 p.m. WCCO, Ch. 4
