8 p.m., NBC

“Guys with Kids”
From executive producer Jimmy Fallon comes this comedy about three loving dads who don’t want to lose their “dudeness” just because they’re wearing Baby Bjorns. Just don’t get the baby bottle mixed up with the beer bottle, guys.

“Arrow”
As rich party boy-turned-vigilante, Stephen Amell brings depth beyond a broody stare to DC Comics crime fighter Green Arrow.

“Chicago Fire”
“Law & Order” creator Dick Wolf brings his crime-of-the-week
storytelling to Chicago, where the heroes are firefighters and

bickering members of the firehouse themselves. Eamonn Walker, Jesse
Spencer and Taylor Kinney star.
Premieres Oct. 10, 10 p.m., NBC

“Nashville”
Connie Britton plays a country queen in the Music City-based soap opera “Nashville.” Find out how the non-singer found her voice here.
