Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC, 9:00 p.m.) – New enemies surface (and by new, we mean familiar rogue agents whose bodies are now possessed by alien life forms) on tonight’s season premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Coulson is more determined than ever to destroy Hydra (after what went down on Maveth, we can’t blame him) and Daisy is focused on protecting her band of Inhumans amidst growing public concern.

Of Kings and Prophets (ABC, 10:00 p.m.) – ABC’s newest drama is being billed as a Biblical Game of Thrones, so expect bloody battles, backstabbing and plenty of sex – or at least as much as a network show can get away with. The premiere sees King Saul attempting to unite the 12 Israelite tribes while fending off an army of Philistines, and a young shepherd named David taking on the lion that’s been attacking his flock.

The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story (FX, 10:00 p.m.) – Tonight’s all about Marcia Clark. The head prosecutor begins to face heavy public scrutiny as the trial moves forward.

Fresh Off the Boat (ABC, 8:00 p.m.) – Jessica wants Louis to find his own friends, but that plan backfires when he starts hanging out at pool halls with strange women.

New Girl (Fox, 8:00 p.m.) – Jess is back from jury duty, which means Reagan is getting the boot (from the loft and from Nick’s life). In a completely unrelated plotline, Schmidt has suddenly developed an intense fear of public dancing and must be cured with help from Winston and Cece.

Pretty Little Liars (Freeform, 8:00 p.m.) – The Liars come up with a plan to face their stalker after Alison is put in jeopardy.

The Voice (NBC, 8:00 p.m.) – The blind auditions continue and I miss Gwen Stefani. That is all.

Grandfathered (Fox, 8:30 p.m.) – Jimmy’s still shacking up with that CEO and, because this is probably the first time he’s been in an adult relationship, it’s taking some getting used to.

The Real O’Neals (ABC, 8:30 p.m.) – Apparently this show has already premiered and is now on its third episode. If you’re watching, tonight, the family observes Lent and Kenny meets his first gay crush.

Rizzoli & Isles (TNT, 9:00 p.m.) – Angela shuts down Ron’s offer of a romantic getaway as the team tries to crack a murder case that carries serious consequences.

Shadowhunters (Freeform, 9:00 p.m.) – The Institute remains on high alert following an attack and Lydia is forced to make a tough call regarding the Seelies.

Ink Master (Spike, 10:00 p.m.) – The artists get their hands dirty during a Flash Challenge and meet a veteran who has returned to challenge them.

Limitless (CBS, 10:00 p.m.) – Brian and Rebecca are put under quarantine after being exposed to an unknown substance during an investigation which makes it a bit difficult for the agent to tap into his stash of NZT without being noticed.

Tosh.0 (Comedy Central, 10:00 p.m.) – In which Tosh gets on feminist’s nerves and mouths off some curse words during a sign language course.
