Tonight, Fox debuts one dreadful new sitcom ("Dads"), one good new sitcom ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine") and gives us the season premieres of two more good sitcoms ("New Girl" and "The Mindy Project").
Here's the rundown ...
Iron Man 2 (7 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4): Broadcast premiere of this 2010 film, which isn't nearly as good a "Iron Man" or "Iron Man 3."
The Million Second Quiz (7 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5): Days 8 of the 12-day event.
Latino Americans (7 p.m., PBS/Ch. 7): Part 1 of this excellent three-part, six-hour documentary series.
Dads (7 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13): Premiere of this really terrible, racist, sexist, deadly unfunny new sitcom.
Whose Line Is It Anyway? (7 p.m., CW/Ch. 30): Comedian Jonathan Mangum and Legends Football League players Chloe Butler and Monique Gaxiola guest star.
Women's college volleyball (7 p.m., P12N): BYU at Utah
Brooklyn Nine-Nine (7:30 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13): There's too much Andy Samberg in the premiere of this new sitcom, but the show is funny and shows promise.
America's Got Talent (8 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5): Six acts perform.
New Girl (8 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13): Nick and Jess go to Mexico - and trouble follows them. (Season premiere)
The Mindy Project (8:30 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13): Not surprisingly, it doesn't take Mindy long to get sick of Haiti. And James Franco guest stars as a new doctor. (Season premiere)
Frontline (9 p.m., PBS/Ch.7): An report on the ongoing turmoil in Egypt.
Covert Affairs (10 p.m., USA): Annie tries to take down Henry.
Sons of Anarchy (11 p.m., FX): Jax deals with collateral damage.
Suits (11 p.m., USA): An old nemesis returns. (Season finale)
