Neighborliness is tested in "Stud Muffin," as a nearby resident informs the Baxters that their dog has put his in -- uh, the family way. Vanessa (Nancy Travis) learns that Chuck and Carol (guest stars Jonathan Adams and Erika Alexander) are having marital problems, and she appeals to Mike (Tim Allen) to help put them back on track. Mandy (Molly Ephraim) wants it a secret that she hit a car, but the note Eve (Kaitlyn Dever) leaves doesn't help that.
A new episode titled "Under Water" doesn't leave much room for guesswork when it comes to the type of acts to be performed during the half-hour. It's also not hard to deduce at least one of them will echo one of the legendary Harry Houdini's most famous stunts. Dean Cain plays host to illusionists Rob Lake, Nathan Burton, Eric Buss, Johnny Ace Palmer and Spencer Horsman ... some of whom likely require more towels after their turns than is usual for this show.
In a new episode called "Fracking Zombies," the gallant crew slowly making its way across country runs out of fuel, forcing them to take their lives in their hands as they try to find an alternate power source. Meanwhile, Cassandra's (Pisay Pao) past comes back to haunt her. Harold Perrineau, Tom Everett Scott and DJ Qualls also star.
When a supposed suicide appears to have some unsavory links to some members of the force, Frank (Tom Selleck) turns to Inspector General Kelly Peterson (guest star Bebe Neuwirth) for help getting at the truth in "Exiles."

Donnie Wahlberg and Will Estes also star.
Winning a third presidential term, FDR (voice of Edward Herrmann) tackles World War II -- bringing along America, not all of which is sold on the idea -- in "The Common Cause (1939-1944)," the sixth part of Ken Burns' new miniseries. The attack on Pearl Harbor sways many former opponents to reconsider Roosevelt's stance, but he must deal with new health concerns. Wife Eleanor (voice of Meryl Streep) visits injured military personnel in the Pacific.
Several football veterans have proven themselves adept at dancing on another show, but how is one at generating on-the-spot humor? The New England Patriots' Rob Gronkowski -- aka "Gronk" -- tests his mettle in that area in this episode, joining guest comedian Jonathan Mangum and cast regulars Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie. Aisha Tyler hosts as the players improvise skits, songs and scenes based on suggestions from the studio audience.
Grover (Chi McBride) is thrust into a tough spot in "O ka Pilo 'Ohana Ka 'Oi" (Hawaiian for "Family Comes First"), as his daughter (Paige Hurd) is abducted by an old enemy who forces him to help steal $100 million in exchange for her safe return. McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) knows something's up, but he can do only so much without Grover's cooperation. Five-0 has another concern, and a very familiar one: Wo Fat (Mark Dacascos), who succeeds in a prison break.
Guy buckles up and hits the road in search of home-style cooking in unexpected places, such as a funky neighborhood joint in Boston that specializes in Southern favorites such as chicken and waffles and off-the-hook tater tots. Far across the country, in Jackson, Wyo., an eatery housed in a century-old log cabin is home to an eclectic menu that includes pork ramen made from scratch. It's all on offer in a new episode called "Cross-Country Classics."
In the new episode "Circling the Skies, Lady & the Panda, 12 Years a Slave," history explorer Don Wildman reviews footage of a high-flying stunt that changed the history of aviation, recounts the story of a panda who was rescued by an unlikely heroine and examines a very old document that tells the story of a man's epic quest for freedom.
