“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” moved to Sundays for its sophomore season. Last year, the show shocked the industry by winning the Golden Globe for best comedy. Star Andy Samberg also took home a Globe for leading actor in a comedy. Neither the show nor Samberg received Emmy noms, though Braugher did for his supporting role. However, Ty Burrell of “Modern Family” took home the statue.

This Sunday, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” will air a special Halloween-themed episode.
