We’ve got new shows on the schedule Sunday night. My favorite of the bunch is “Battle Creek” (10 p.m., CBS), a new cop drama from Vince Gilligan (“Breaking Bad”) and David Shore (“House”). Dean Winters plays Russ Agnew, a frustrated detective at the under-resourced Battle Creek Police Department, suddenly paired with hotshot FBI agent Milt Chamberlain (Josh Duhamel), who has been relocated there against his wishes. The partnership contrasts Russ’ dedication and street-smart experience with Milt’s slick style and vast support system. Winters plays the perfect combination of humor and exasperation, which earns “Battle Creek” a regular spot on the DVR.
