Narcos (Netflix) — The first season of Narcos gave us some incredible drama — at times, a bit too much of it. While season one packed a lot of storytelling into ten episodes, season two is shrinking the story back down, focusing on Pablo Escobar during his final days, on the run after escaping from prison. With the law and his rivals hunting him, expect the action this season to pick up, along with the acting and the plot. If season one of Narcos was good, season two has found a way to become great.

College Football: Appalachian State vs. Tennessee (SECN, 7:30 p.m.) — College football officially kicks off this week. While most of the big games are happening this weekend, some interesting matchups take place tonight including this one. App State takes on Tennessee in Knoxville. The Volunteers are expected to come away with the win, but don’t count the Mountaineers out.

BattleBots (ABC, 8:00 p.m.) — In the first part of the combined season two finale, eight teams battle it out in the quarterfinals before four head to championship round.
