1) “Baker and the Beauty” debut, 10 p.m., ABC. The Garcias are warm, hard-working folks who have a Miami bakery. They expect life to be kind of normal. Then Daniel (Victor Rasuk) and Noa (Nathalie Kelley, who was Cristal in the first year of the “Dynasty” reboot), a Kardashian-type pop-culture star, accidentally meet. You could call this a modern Cinderella, with the genders flipped … or a Latino “Notting Hill.” Either way, it’s subtly written, well-played and beautifully filmed.
2) “Songland” season-opener, 10:01 p.m., NBC. Yes, a new show and a new season collide at the same time; TV is like that. Each week, “Songland” had four songwriters perform for producers and a performer or group (in this case, country’s Lady Antebellum). Three are chosen to work in the studio with a producer; one will have the song recorded. That notion seems to work; in 11 episodes last summer, seven of the winning songs reached No. 1 on one of the iTunes charts.
3) “The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart” debut, 8-10 p.m., ABC. TV has used dancing to stir romance (via “Flirty Dancing”); now it tries the same thing with music. Over six episodes, young singers will date and croon each other. Most sing pop or R&B, but the 12 men include three who do country, two folk and one jazz; the 11 women include one musical-theater and one country. The latter is
Jamie, 21; in the opener, she kisses Trevor (29, country) and Ryan (28, jazz/funk); troubles ensue.
4) “Bob (Hearts) Abishola,” 8:30 p.m., CBS. Throughout this excellent first season, Dottie (Christine Ebersole) has kept a tough exterior. But at a physical therapy session, there’s a surprising connection with a fellow stroke survivor (John Ratzenberger). Meanwhile, her sons try to keep tabs on their sister, who’s at an emotional-wellness spa.
5) “Biography,” 3 p.m. to 5 a.m., A&E. The lives of country superstars will roll past us here. It’s Garth Brooks from 3-7 p.m., Dolly Parton from 7-9 p.m. and 3 a.m. In between are two new specials: A profile of Kenny Rogers (who died recently at 81) is at 9 p.m. and 1 a.m.; a tribute concert for Merle Haggard is 11 p.m. and 2 a.m.
