With so much to watch on TV, it can be difficult to plan ahead. Here are the five shows you won’t want to miss the week of July 3.
Captain Holt reveals that the NYPD is shutting down some precincts, and Amy is surprised to learn that her ex-boyfriend Teddy is the auditor sent to the Nine-Nine.
New Girl Brooklyn 99 Are Crossing Over, Awkwardly In a TV-time-honored attempt to goose the ratings of a couple of shows in need of a goosing, Fox has declared Tuesday night’s episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and New Girl a “crossover event.” The casts do indeed cross over, but the result barely qualifies as an event. The show shows are time-period neighbors, so Brooklyn Nine-Nine is up first, with a main plot that involves the precinct coping with exhaustion and sagging morale at pulling the night shift.

It’s late at night, you’ve had a few drinks, there’s soft jazz playing in the background — sounds like the perfect setting to make a booty call. And then Andy Samberg’s super-weird, socially-awkward Lionel picks up the phone. Talk about a cold shower! Singer Alicia Keys is the musical guest this week on Saturday Night Live, with host Brie Larson.
