PICK OF THE NIGHT
How to Get Away With Murder
ABC, 10 p.m.
Viola’s back! With Annalise Keaton’s reputation at Middleton on the line, she takes the initiative to create a “criminal law clinic” for students to try their own pro bono cases. Though I’d imagine there will still be some foul play this season, because How to Get Away With Pro Bono Cases doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.
Joe Swanberg, the mumblecore movie extraordinaire who directed such titles as Drinking Buddies and Hannah Takes the Stairs, is the man behind this intriguing eight-part, half-hour series, which will present a different story every episode. “I wanted to make a show that I felt like could always keep up with where I was at and that was flexible enough to stay interesting to me,” he told EW in an interview. Looks like he’s found that show: Easy stars the likes of Orlando Bloom, Malin Akerman, Marc Maron, Aya Cash, Hannibal Buress, and more. Read our full interview with Swanberg here.
Fox, 9 p.m.
Gifted female pitcher Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury) looks to make history as the first woman to play for a Major League Baseball team, but instead she joins the San Diego Padres. #BaseballBurn
ABC, 9 p.m.

Which side of the good-bad divide will this show, starring Piper Perabo, fall on? Watch tonight to find out (and to see a cameo from Katie Couric).
