1) “The Voice,” 8-10 p.m, NBC. This is a perfect time to catch up, as the show prepares for its detour. It had taped its episodes early, trimming to 17 contestants (including Arei Moon, shown here). But that was before the coronavirus was forcing shows to shut down or use social-distancing. Now “Voice” pauses to show what’s happened so far. Next week, the three-week finals will have music from home, “American Idol” style.
2) “Bob (Hearts) Abishola,” 8:30 p.m., CBS. This rerun has two stories, one weak (Bob’s sister is attracted to Kofo, one of her employers) and the other broadly funny: At the hospital, Abishola meets Lorraine (Nicole Sullivan of “Mad TV”), Bob’s ex-wife.
3) “Prodigal Son” season-finale, 9 p.m., Fox. Last week ended big, with Malcolm charged with murder. Eve – his lost love, whose sister was the mysterious “girl in a box” he saw as a boy – was slain. Malcolm went to the hospital, hoping the killer would admit he was hired by Nicholas Endicott, the evil mogul. But the killer was soon dead and Malcolm was arrested. Tonight, this well-acted drama has him trying to clear himself, expose Endicott and solve the “girl in a box” mystery.
4) “Breeders” season-finale, 10 p.m., FX. This oft-hilarious show took a sudden turn last week, when Luke, 7, was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. There are some laughs here – particularly with a grandfather’s babysitting struggles – but this is mostly a serious and involving episode. Stick around for the “Better Things” rerun that follows, with a great opening bit by Hannahy Alligood.
5) “Independent Lens,” 10 p.m., PBS (check local listings). Cancer has overwhelmed Jim Allison’s world. It killed his mother, two uncles and brother; he’s been diagnosed with it three times. His response has been fervent research. That took this Texan – a harmonica player who has jammed with Willie Nelson – to Berkeley and New York City. Resisting common theories, he’s had two major breakthroughs, the second winning him a 2018 Nobel Prize. It’s a feel-good story we need as researchers race for a COVID-19 solution.
