1) “The Bachelor” opener, 8-10 p.m., ABC. Back in June, ABC announced its first Black “Bachelor.” Now, after COVID delays, we meet Matt James (shown here), 29. At Wake Forest, he was a receiver (6-foot-5, 220 pounds) who had injuries and then a strong senior year – 40 catches, 401 yards and a brief pro try-out. He got an economics degree, works in New York and also started a project teaching kids about food and exercise. In the opener, he meets 32 women, including two lawyers, a pharmacist and a ballerina.
2) “LA’s Finest” season-finale, 8 p.m., Fox. These cops have been chasing a crime empire run by Carlene Hart (played by soap star Rebecca Buddig, a six-time Daytime Emmy nominee). Tonight, they rush to try to confront her and rescue the kids.
3) “Bob (Hearts) Abishola,” 8:30 p.m., ABC. The best and worst parts of this terrific show are featured here. The worst involve Bob’s brother, working on the floor of the family business; tonight, he makes a major mistake. And the best involved Kemi, Abishola’s acerbic friend, played by Gina Yasahere, the show’s co-creator. Tonight, she’s feuding with Bob.
4) “Indepemdent Lens,” 10 p.m., PBS (check local listings). This views the lives of NFL cheerleaders – glamorous work and, sometimes, minimum-wage pay. It follows three cheerleaders who fight back
5) “Avengers: Infinity Wars” (2018) and “Avengers: Endgame” (2019), 4:30 and 7:15 p.m., TNT. The epic story wraps up … eventually. These two movies take way too long, with endless battle scenes. Still, they’re visually and technically impressive films – especially when seen on a big screen.
