New Episodes Tonight:


Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season 1 88%

Led by the surprisingly effective pairing of Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a charming, intelligently written take on the cop show format, according to the critics. On tonight's episode, Jake (Samberg) finds he can't seem to close a number of unsolved cases. More

Chicago Fire S2 - NBC ——

In this drama's second season, it appears that budget cuts may pose as much a threat to the men and women of Firehouse 51 as a three-alarm fire. In tonight's episode, an arsonist is on the loose, and Lt. Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) is dealing with new responsibilities outside of work. More

Dads: Season 1 0%

The Goldbergs - ABC 56%

The pundits say The Goldbergs is at times too reliant on gimmicky references to 1980s pop culture, but it's also sweet, sincere, and occasionally very funny. Tonight, Murray (Jeff Garlin) attempts to bond with Erica (Hayley Orrantia) by taking her to the skating rink. More

Lucky 7 - ABC 29%

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - ABC 86%

Critics say Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is sure to please comic book fans, but the strong ensemble and brisk pacing help to make this better-than-average superhero show accessible to non-fanboys as well. This time, the agents travel to Peru in search of a mysterious object. More

The Mindy Project: Season 2 89%

The second season of The Mindy Project is getting strong notices for Kaling's strong, eccentric writing. In episode three, Casey (Anders Holm) has returned from his time in Haiti, and he and Mindy attend a disaster-fraught music festival. More
