American Horror Story: This season is “AHS: NYC” and, as with every season, we know little to nothing about it. That said, I wonder based purely on the teaser trailer, if the season won’t be based at least in part on the real serial killer who preyed on gay men back in the 70s, and who was never caught. Who knows? But it just feels like something Ryan Murphy would run with. Season premiere. 9 p.m., FX

The Peripheral: Chloë Grace Moretz stars in this new series based on the William Gibson novel of the same name as a young woman who finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery in a simulated universe.
