The Goldbergs - "Hogan Is My Grandfather" (ABC, 8:00PM ET/PT) (Repeat)
Adam is assigned a term paper on a great person in history, and he decides to make a movie about his grandfather but finds all of Pop’s war stories mundane. Pops takes matters into his own hands and decides to tell more exciting stories based on an old television series. Meanwhile, Erica returns home to confront Beverly for over-mothering her. Murray insists Beverly teach Erica and Barry basic life skills, but she worries Erica and Barry will be too independent.

Speechless - "B-I-- BIKINI U-N-- UNIVERSITY " (ABC, 8:30PM ET/PT) (Repeat)
JJ convinces his parents to take him on a college visit but hides an ulterior motive. As his plan unravels, JJ enlists the help of new friend Tyson (guest star, Nick Viall of ABC’s “The Bachelor”), an actor who gives the performance of his life to keep JJ out of hot water.
