1) “The Bachelorette” opener, 8-10 p.m., ABC. Many of the show’s habits are being broken here. Usually, the show centers on someone almost chosen on “The Bachelor”; instead, we have Katie Thurston (shown here), who finished 11th but was popular for standing up to bullies. Usually, there’s just one “Bachelorette” a year; now they’re back-to-back – Thurston now, Michelle Young in September. Usually, the guys are older; now Thurston, 30, is older than at least 20 of the 30 men she’ll meet.
2) “The Good Doctor” season-finale, 10 p.m., ABC. Reaching Guatemala last week, the team found new problems and brought their own. Devastated by her miscarriage, Lea told Shaun that she would be moving back to her parents for a while. Now the crises expand: A power failure requires doing surgery in the dark – something Shaun has a knack for.
3) “Housebroken,” 9 p.m., Fox. This is a surprisingly clever show – sharp enough to please even people who don’t like cartoons. Tonight, Honey (Lisa Kudrow), the well-coiffed poodle, is devastated by an awful haircut. That’s surrounded by new episodes of “Hell’s Kitchen” (8 p.m.) and “Duncanville” (9).
4) “Bob (Hearts) Abishola,” 8:30 p.m., CBS. Gina Yashere is a brilliant writer/actress who co-created the show and co-stars as Kemi. Tonight, she ends up in a feud with Bob, caused by Abishola’s brutal honesty. Also, Bob’s brother, working on the warehouse floor, makes a big mistake.
5) “Ms. Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries,” any time, www.acorn.tv. Decked out in the look and sound of 1960s Melbourne, this show is a consistent delight. In the first season, Peregrine Fisher inherited her aunt’s estate and obsessed on crimesolving … to the dismay of the cop who otherwise likes her. Now come four more movie-length stories, set at a dog show, a bowling-alley, a flight-attendant school and more. Two of them, both great fun, arrive today.
