Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Wednesday, September 27. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Designated Survivor (ABC, 10 p.m.): Okay, so the ending of season one didn’t exactly stick the landing. Designated Survivor was still one of the better new offerings from the networks last year, with a winningly sturdy formula of Oval Office intrigue. Here’s hoping the new season fixes the problems the show ran into with its Pax Americana plot. Allison Shoemaker will be there to let us know if it doesn’t.
