What to watch on Tuesday, April 30...


7:30pm, Cartoon Network
Teen Titans Go!
Robin’s “Driver’s Ed” instructor tries to throw him some curveballs, but I seriously doubt he’ll be able to fluster a kid who learned to handle a car from riding in the friggin’ Batmobile with friggin’ Batman. Later in “Raven’s Daddy Dearest,” Trigon again plots the most sinister Take Your Daughter to Work Day ever.


8pm, CBS
NCIS
In the wake of the murders of Eli David and Jackie Vance, the squad is out for “Revenge.” Homeland Security demands they give up their feverish search for Bodnar, but Gibbs is all, “Yo dudes, is the highest-rated drama on TV called DHS? No? Didn’t think so!” And then someone hands him a mic so he can drop it, and they go do what they want.


8pm, The CW
Hart of Dixie
Rose and Max lend a hand when Zoe tries online dating in “I’m Moving On.” According to her initial profile, she’s an 83-percent match with sprightly rom-com hijinks. Around town, Brick and Shelby fear they may have acted too hastily, Tansy is beset by doubts about her relationship with George, and Lavon can’t bear to relinquish his rivalry with the mayor of another town.


8:58pm yes 8:58pm, Fox
New Girl
Flashbacks trace the gang’s experiences popping their proverbial cherries in “Virgins.” Papa Miller Dennis Farina returns for Nick’s reminiscence, while Jess’s includes Teen Wolf star Dylan O’Brien doing that whole sensitive-dreamboat thing the 18–25 demo seems to dig so much.


9:30pm, Fox
The Mindy Project
Danny’s ex-wife (Chloe Sevigny ) returns to town after receiving the emotional missive he sent. Except that Morgan was the one who sent it—costing him his job when a peeved Danny finds out. Say there, episode. You’re called “Triathlon,” so what does that have to do with any of this? Oh, the rest of the staff competes in such an event against the midwives? And Morgan is working with them after getting axed? Okay, it all checks out. Carry on.


NEW NIGHT, 10pm, NBC
Grimm
Cows cut up into confetti? Reports of bioluminescent beasties? Why, that can only mean one thing: Space-Wesen. Wait, what? Really, Grimm? “Endangered” is roping aliens into the mythology now? That’s a bold way to introduce yourself to the Tuesday-night crowd. But as long as these interstellar hybrids have thoraxes Nick can impale with a pike, I say go nuts.


10pm, MTV
Awkward.
Jenna’s dad reaches out to Matty’s parents in “Let’s Talk About Sex,” with characteristically mortifying consequences. Meanwhile, Tamara and Jake decide to take the next step. (And that step is onto a train.) (And that train is bound for Boinktown.) (If you know what I mean.) (And I think you do.) (I mean sex they decide to have sex.)


10pm, CBS
Golden Boy
In “Longshot,” the murder of a basketball star sparks a high-profile investigation and triggers Clark’s ruminations on his own family’s hardships. Flashbacks within a flashback show? We’re approaching Inception territory here, people; have your BRRRAAAMMM buttons at the ready. Elsewhere, Arroyo’s deception creates a rift in his partnership with McKenzie.


SERIES PREMIERE, 10:30pm, Comedy Central
Inside Amy Schumer
Sketches, stand-up comedy, and man-on-the-street interviews illuminate the eponymous comic’s thoughts on a variety of day-to-day topics. “Bad Decisions” tackles the unpleasant repercussions of an airplane voyage, a one-night stand, and an audition for a notorious web video.
