Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season 1

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

The Goldbergs – ABC

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – ABC
