Tuesday TV Picks: ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ ‘Latino Americans’
Tonight in Prime Time
This new cop comedy (from the producers of “Parks and Recreation”) is in the vein of that great 1970s series, “Barney Miller.” The biggest laughs come from the interaction between Detective Jake Peralta (a goofy Andy Samberg) and Captain Ray Holt (a deadpan Andre Braugher). An example from the pilot episode: Holt turns to Peralta and asks “What is wrong with you?” 8:30 p.m. Tuesday on Fox (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
