A.P. Bio (9:30 p.m., NBC) – The premiere of a new Seth Meyers-produced comedy about a Harvard philosophy professor (Glenn Howerton) who gets passed over for his dream job and has to move back to Ohio and work as a high school biology teacher. But instead of teaching biology, he has his honors students work to help him mentally break the nemesis who took his dream job so he can win back his position at Harvard. Patton Oswalt plays the school principal.
