Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Tuesday, September 26. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Fox, 9:30 p.m.)/Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders (NBC, 10 p.m.): Tonight, in the television justice system, the people are entertained by two separate yet equally important groups: The police who investigate crime and attempt to get their wrongly accused colleagues out of prison on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and the attorneys who represent the real-life accused of Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders. These are their stories, which will face their own trials as overseen by judges LaToya Ferguson and Kyle Fowle. [CLUNK CLUNK]
