1) “The Bachelor” finale, 8 p.m., ABC. Tonight, Matt James can choose Michelle Young (a Minnesota teacher, shown here with James) or Rachael Kirkconnell (a Georgia designer), in a show filmed prior to the controversy: James is the first Black bachelor; Kirkconnell has attended a pre-Civil War South party and allegedly mocked classmates who like Black men. Host Chris Harrison suggested leniency; for the 10 p.m. follow-up, he’s replaced by Emmanuel Acho, author of “Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man.”
2) “America’s Most Wanted” opener, 9 p.m. , Fox. When Fox began, it experimented with new ideas – including this show, profiling fugitives. “AMW” became a surprise hit; it ran 25 seasons and helped find 1,200 people. Now it’s back, with host Elizabeth Vargas and three profiles: Glen Godwin escaped from prisons in 1987 and ‘91 and hasn’t been seen since … Eugene Palmer allegedly killed his daughter-in-law and vanished … And Jennifer Settle is accused of kidnapping her daughter.
3) “Bulletproof” return, 8 p.m., CW. After a summertime run, this British show returns for a three-week series, filmed in South Africa. This first hour starts and ends with the usual wild action scenes. The opening one is in London; the closing one is in Capetown, where the police seem surprisingly slow to respond to a wild shoot-out. In between, the guys try to vacation, until a crisis looms. It’s an involving and entertaining episode, despite the trouble with thick accents amid fast-paced dialog.
4) “Bloodlands” opener, any time, www.acorn.tv. When a car is pulled from the water, a police detective fears the worst: This could revive the unrest that shattered Irish life for three decades, before a 1998 agreement. The four hourlong episodes (one per Monday) will keep delivering surprises and jolts. This is a deeply layered film, set amid the brooding beauty of seaside Northern Ireland.
5) ALSO: In “Bob Hearts Abishola” (8:30 p.m., CBS), Bob prepares for an imposing task – meeting his fiancee’s mother, via a video link to Nigeria. Also, Showtime has two involving real-life stories: At 9 p.m., “Southside With You” (2016) has Michelle Robinson reluctantly going on a first date with Barry, the lawyer she’s mentoring; later, they would become the Obamas. At 10:30, “On the Basis of Sex” (2018) sees young Ruth Bader Ginsburg start her series of gender-equality court cases.
