TONIGHT’S MUST-SEE: “The Voice” season-opener, 8-10:01 p.m.,
Vaulting out of the Olympics, NBC thas this ratings-leader,
followed by “Blacklist” and more.
This is the mid-season edition of “Voice,” with half the
judges (Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green) gone on tour or whatever. Blake
Shelton and Adam Levine remain, joined by Usher and Shakira.
TONIGHT’S MIGHT-SEE: “The Bachelor,” 8-10:01 p.m., ABC.
It’s time for Juan Pablo Galavis to visit the home towns of
the final four.
There’s Atlanta with Andi, 26, an assistant district attorney
… Sacramento with Clare, 32, a hair stylist … Kansas City, Mo., where Nikki, 26, a pediatric
nurse, challenges hin to ride a mechanical bull … And Sarasota, Fla., where he
watches the 8-year-old son of Renee (32, a real-estate agent) play Little
He’ll choose three women … and we’ll promptly learn the next
step, in a transplanted Tuesday episode.
TONIGHT’S ALTERNATIVE: “Late Night with Seth Meyers” debut,
12:35 a.m., NBC.
Stepping into his new world, Meyers has many of the people who
were with his dozen years at “Saturday Night Live,” where he became the gifted
head writer and “Weekend Update” anchor.
One guest is Amy Poehler, his “Update” co-host; another is
Joe Biden … often their target. “SNL” also provided his producers and Alex
Baze, his head writer. And in the surprise, Fred Armisen – a sometimes-rocker
and frequent comedy talent -- is the band leader. The music guest is A Great Big World.
Other choices include:
“How I Met Your Mother,” 8 p.m., CBS. Just five weeks from
its finale, this show finds a wedding-day crisis. Barney has a hangover and friends
scramble to concoct the “Stimson hangover fixer elixir.”

(Gilles Marini), Caroline brings friends.
“Mike & Molly,” 9 p.m., CBS. Mike nudges Molly to see a
“Dallas” season-opener, 9 p.m., TNT. In this version of
Texas, everyone is beautiful, most people are lying and many of them live in
one Southfork ranch house. Now Elena (Jordana Brewster), the brainy and
educated daughter of a Southfork maid, has slid to the dark side; she lies a
lot, albeit beautifully.
“Mom,” 9:30 p.m., CBS. With Christy obsessing on her
boyfriend, her oft-irresponsible mom helps out.
“Nashville Wives,” 10 p.m., TNT. Strange bedfellows fill
Nashville, we’re told. Gary Chapman’s marriage went from Christian-music
favorite Amy Grant to a former Hooters waitress 23 years his junior. Raul Malo
of the Mavericks is married to half of high-energy twins. Bryan White is trying
to revive his career just as his wife tries to re-start hers. These are
interesting people in a colorful and musical city.
“The Blacklist,” 10:01 p.m., NBC. Liz is an honest FBI
agent, but now Red convinces her to try a heist in the midst of an elaborate
