No sig­nif­i­cant changes in for­mat or tone are an­tic­i­pated as Jimmy Fallon opens his sev­enth sea­son as host of this long-run­ning latenight en­ter­tain­ment fran­chise. That means serv­ing largely as coun­ter­pro­gram­ming to other shows in the crowded late-night arena, re­ly­ing on light­hearted games and celebrity guests in­stead of the edgier so­cial and political fare cur­rently fa­vored by CBS time-slot ri­val Stephen Col­bert and NBC col­league and erst­while “Satur­day Night Live” cast-mate Seth Mey­ers. How that plays in what prom­ises to be a con­tentious pres­i­den­tial elec­tion year re­mains to be seen.

9 p.m. on 47.1 KGPE FBI

An in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a bomb that ex­ploded at a pop­u­lar restau­rant in Queens feels per­sonal for OA (Zeeko Zaki), who has fond mem­o­ries of eat­ing there with his fam­ily while he was grow­ing up, in the Sea­son 2 pre­miere, “Lit­tle Egypt.” While ini­tial ev­i­dence sug­gests that the vi­o­lent in­ci­dent was the work of ter­ror­ists, how­ever, the case soon re­veals it­self to be some­thing far more com­plex, so OA goes un­der­cover to en­sure a sec­ond bomb at­tack isn’t im­mi­nent.

9 p.m. on 24.1 KSEE Chicago Fire

Fans of this en­sem­ble drama may want to brace them­selves for the Sea­son 8 pre­miere, which showrun­ner Derek Haas cau­tions is “as bru­tal as we’ve done” and is only a pro­logue to some lin­ger­ing fall­out. Back to­gether, Stella and Sev­eride (Mi­randa Mayo, Tay­lor Kin­ney) of­fer strong sup­port to each other dur­ing this try­ing pe­riod, and Casey (Jesse Spencer) is too dis­tracted to ob­sess over Brett’s (Kara Killmer) un­ex­pected en­gage­ment to Chap­lain Kyle Sh­effield (Teddy Sears).

It’s gritty work, but Dex doesn’t mind get­ting her hands dirty as she takes care of a younger brother (Cole Sibus), strug­gles to pay off a gam­bling debt and jug­gles a love life that’s ... com­pli­cated. Jake John­son, Tan­too Car­di­nal and Cam­ryn Man­heim costar.

THURS­DAY 8 p.m. on 30.1 KFSN Grey’s Anatomy

ABC or­dered two more sea­sons of this long-run­ning med­i­cal drama last May, but iron­i­cally Mered­ith, Richard and Alex (Ellen Pom­peo, James Pick­ens, Justin Cham­bers) all face an un­cer­tain fu­ture in “Noth­ing Left to Cling To,” the Sea­son 16 pre­miere.

In the se­ries pre­miere, Wade war­ily pon­ders re-en­ter­ing the dating pool, much to the de­light of his friends (Rob Corddry, Michaela Watkins, Omar Miller, Maya Lynne Robin­son).

She’s well into mid­dle age, though, putting her out of sync with her fel­low in­terns. Kyle Ma­cLach­lan, Jean-Luc Bilodeau and Ash­ley Tis­dale also star.

Com­pli­cat­ing mat­ters, the peo­ple Natalie knows in her “real” life have changed into Hol­ly­wood stereo­types.
