Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Tuesday, April 11. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Fox, 8 p.m.): After a midseason finale that put one of its characters in major peril, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is returning to throw the rest of the precinct into turmoil with an audit that could result in a shutdown. Showrunner Dan Goor told us: “We wanted to shake things up and we wanted to see how the squad reacted to a real stress and to the real threat that their family was going to be broken up.” Hurdles include an ex-boyfriend and aggressive rats. LaToya Ferguson will be on hand for all the hijinks.


Regular Coverage

The Get Down (Netflix)
WWE Smackdown (USA, 8 p.m.)
Trial & Error (NBC, 9 p.m.)
iZombie (The CW, 9 p.m.)
The Americans (FX, 10 p.m.)
Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC, 10 p.m.)


Wild Card

Detroiters (Comedy Central, 10:30 p.m.): When Detroiters premiered we called it “a package that’s resolutely pleasant.” Tonight, Sam Richardson and Tim Robinson’s series about advertising in Motor City is concluding its first season. Check in now because a second is on the way.
