Critic’s Corner: What’s on TV Tuesday

Elizabeth Morris/NBC

Chicago Fire 10 p.m., NBC

A moment, please, to celebrate the hilarious voice of David Eigenberg, who plays the hapless but brave firefighter Chris Hermann. I wish I could do my imitation of him for you, right now. He has a high pitch, a Midwestern accent by way of Manhattan, and a vocal quality that I want to describe as rabbity, although he did give voice to a cat in the movie “Garfield.” I would pay to hear him do the famous (if misquoted) James Cagney line “You dirty rat, you killed my brother.” Eigenberg (above left, with Monica Raymund and Yuri Sardarov) is best known as Steve Brady in “Sex and the City.” See him on YouTube, accepting the cast’s Razzie for “Sex and the City 2” in 2011.

Late Night With Seth Meyers 12:35 p.m., NBC

Here’s the thing. I thought Jimmy Fallon was awful when he premiered on “Late Night” in 2009, and now I think he’s one of the best. So I’m wary of judging Seth Meyers until he has relaxed a bit. Three weeks into his new gig, you can still feel his anxiety, both in the comic bits — describing the situation in Ukraine faster than one of his writers can untangle ear buds — and in the interviews. I’m waiting for him to laugh more loosely. Tonight’s guests: Rachel Maddow and Taran Killam.

The Waltons 8 p.m., Hallmark

Mary Ellen needs her dolls.

Mind Games 10 p.m., ABC

Putting their soul power to the karmic wheel?

Obsession: Dark Desires 10 p.m., ID

TV show, or perfume? Either way, it stinks.
