Fargo (FX, 10 p.m.) – Season two kicks off with a shooting at a diner disrupting the citizens of a small Minnesota town. Ever since True Detective, we’ve been a bit apprehensive about sophomore seasons of surprise breakout hits but apparently it’s okay to get your hopes up for this one. Besides boasting a pretty stellar cast – Kirsten Dunst, Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson and even Nick Offerman all get some screen time – the show’s first few episodes look promising.

Jane the Virgin (CW, 9 p.m.) – Season two kicks off with Mateo being kidnapped and held for ransom, Jane seeking parenting advice from her mother and grandmother – which makes her baby-daddy feel insecure for some reason – and Petra struggling with what to do about that pesky, left-over sperm problem.

Meanwhile, Raj and Howard are busy gathering band members for their upcoming gig at a comic book store.

The Voice (NBC, 8 p.m.) – We’ve finally made it to the battle rounds which means more musical talent displayed by our Average Joe contestants but, more importantly, some high-profile celebrity cameos. First up: Missy Elliott and Selena Gomez.

Scorpion (CBS, 9 p.m.) – Walter, Cabe, and Happy spend a little quality time together while trapped in a submarine with a limited oxygen supply that has propelled itself to the bottom of the ocean.

NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS, 10 p.m.) – Remember that movie with Colin Farrell where he’s in a phone booth receiving creepy commands from Kiefer Sutherland? That’s basically the premise for tonight’s episode.

Blindspot (NBC, 10 p.m.) – Jane finds out she has one of those cool black light tattoos. Unfortunately the tat leads the team to the CDC where they find out a disease sample is missing.
