Whitney Houston's mom, Cissy (left), and daughter, Bobbi Kristina, star in the new series "The Houstons: On Our Own."

“The Houstons: On Our Own”
REALITY. Did “get your own reality TV show” become a step in the grieving process? Not long after the untimely death of pop superstar Whitney Houston, cameras started rolling to chronicle the life of the singer’s 19-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and those closest to her/her newfound inheritance.
Series premiere, 9 p.m., Lifetime

“My Grandmother’s Ravioli”
REALITY. The affable Mo Rocca travels the country looking for the nation’s best recipes — which, of course, are those passed down from your grandparents.

“The Middle”
COMEDY. It’s Halloween, and the only thing scarier than Brick’s strange reaction to eating too much candy is Sue receiving her learner’s permit.
8 p.m., ABC

“Law & Order: SVU”
DRAMA. Tom Sizemore and Hamish Linklater guest star on the drama’s 300th episode, which finds the kidnapping of a young boy eerily reminiscent of a similar crime that happened 13 years ago.
