A Criminal Minds spinoff! Meet Sam (a hammy Forest Whitaker), one of those sullen FBI agents who likes to get inside the heads of serial killers. First, he and his partner -- Janeane Garofalo, showing moxie as the newbie -- hunt a wacko who extracts victims' eyes and other body parts to get attention. The tale is eerie and absorbing, thanks in part to the sinister villain (played by a surprise guest star!). But overall, this show is overkill. Literally. (CBS, 10 P.M.)
