“Mankind: The Story of All of Us”
DOCUMENTARY. Don’t worry — this 12-hour docuseries is no snoozy high school history lecture. Instead, bloody battle re-enactments (lots of them) and narration by Josh Brolin help tell the tale of humans’ humble beginnings and rise to global dominance.
Miniseries premiere, 9 p.m., History Channel
COMEDY. Schmidt goes all “Fifty Shades of Grey” on his corporate boss (guest star Carla Gugino), though we’re guessing he’s the Ana in this situation.
9 p.m., Fox
COMEDY. Jimmy learns he has a long-lost brother, who happens to be played by long-lost actor Chris Klein.
8 p.m., Fox
COMEDY. Max’s days as a bar mitzvah emcee may be numbered (possibly not such a bad thing) when he invites Brad to go to work with him — and the newbie steals the spotlight.
9 p.m., ABC
