Lethal Weapon on Fox at 8:00pm ET. Second season premiere. All of Fox’s “comedy” shows are back tonight. Some are more obviously comedic than others.
The Mick on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Second season premiere.
This Is Us on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Second season premiere. The crying show is back on TV! I poke fun, but it means that Sterling K. Brown gets to be everywhere and I’m truly grateful for that even if I never watch another minute of this particular flavor of emotional manipulation.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Fox at 9:30pm ET. Fifth season premiere.
Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders on NBC at 10:01pm ET. Series premiere. I guess Dick Wolf saw all that sweet American Crime Story money pouring into Ryan Murphy’s pockets last year and decided to hop on the train. This looks at the case of Lyle and Erik Menendez who shot their parents to death in 1989. The case has a smorgasbord of dramatic elements that would sound ridiculous in a scripted drama and yet, somehow, were all actually real. Allegations of child sex abuse, drug addiction, a scorned mistress, doctor-patient confidentiality, Edie Falco with a period-appropriate perm, this show really will have everything.
