The fall television season really gets underway tonight with two highly anticipated debuts: “Heroes” proved to be ratings gold for NBC a decade ago. Tonight, the series gets a reboot with new, younger superpower-endowed do-gooders in “Heroes Reborn.” Last season, “How to Get Away with Murder” was a hit for ABC and featured network TV’s hottest openly gay character, law student Connor (Jack Falahee.)
