1) “Dancing With the Stars,” 8-10 p.m., ABC. We’re just a week from the finale now. Last week, Sean Spicer, the former presidential press secretary, was ousted. He finished sixth … which puts him well ahead of how civilians (politicians, businessfolk, etc.) usually do. Remaining are actors James Van Der Beek and Kel Mitchell, singers Lauren Alaina and Ally Brook and “bachelorette” Hannah Brown (shown here with pro partner Alan Bersten).
2) “The Voice,” 8-10 p.m., NBC. Unlike the dance show, this one is in no hurry; its finale is Dec. 16-17. Last week, “Voice” trimmed from 20 acts to 13 – three per judge, plus the Hello Sunday duo as the “wild card.” Now it slows down – two acts will be ousted this week, only one next.
3) “Bob (hearts) Abishola,” 8:30 p.m., CBS. After a rerun last week, this quietly likable show has a new episode tonight. Bob’s mother (Christine Ebersole) is ill; Abishola, a nurse, sometimes takes care of her, but much of the work falls on Bob and his brother and sister.
4) “Amercian Masters: M. Scott Momaday,” 9-10:30 p.m., PBS. In 1969, Momaday became the first American Indian to win the Pulitzer Prize. That was “electrifying” and “astounding,” people say here’ it launched the Native American renaissance. “His voice had a spiritual connection to the land,” Robert Redford says. “And it was poetic.” A half-century later, Momaday remains impressive at 85. This film is spiced with gorgeous landscapes, brief animation and his resonant voice, reciting prose and poetry.
5) “The Good Doctor,” 10 p.m., ABC. Relationships dominate this episode: Carly struggles for ways to find more intimacy with Shaun; Lim and Melendez try to keep work and romance separate.
