1) “FBI” trilogy, 8-11 p.m., CBS. Sprawling across three shows and two continents, this is an epic way to launch a new series. At 8, the “FBI” season-opener has the slaying of a woman who was at a yacht party with some rich creeps; two “FBI: Most Wanted” guys, Crosby and LaCroix – are soon involved. Then the “Most Wanted” opener, at 9, points to the debut of “FBI International” at 10. Zadan (Zeeko Zaki, shown here in a previous epiosde), from “FBI,” rushes to the Budapest bureau, to pursue a Jeffrey Epstein-type villain and his hostage.
2) “Our Kind of People” debut, 9 p.m., Fox. Even at its best, Lee Daniels’”Empire” had some soapy excess at its core; it compensated with great music and the bravado performances of Taraji Henson and Terrence Howard. Now comes Daniels’ new show – no Henson, no Howard, no music, but huge waves of soap suds. A woman arrives at a rich Black enclave on Martha’s Vineyard, with her aunt, her teen daughter and some secrets. Well, everyone has secrets here, as the story quickly hits high-decibel.
3) “The Voice” opener, 8-10 p.m., NBC. It’s changeover time for the reality shows. One show (“Voice”) arrives and another (“The Ultimate Surfer,” 10 p.m., ABC) concludes, picking its winner. And “Bachelor in “Paradise” continues; it ends Oct. 12, with “Bachelorette” then taking over.
4) “New Amsterdam” season-opener, 10 p.m., NBC. After some hectic times, Mac is talking about giving his hospital – and his life – a sense of joy. He had new paint for the walls and a hot romance and … well, then there are spectacular troubles, as usual. This opener packs way too much into the hour, then has a confusing ending. It does, however, hold our interest through some emotional peaks.
5) ALSO: “The Resident” opens its season at 8 p.m., with the hospital facing a cyber attack. Also, three gems show up tonight: There are two great biographies, one scripted (“Patton,” 1970, 8 p.m., Turner Classic Movies) and one not (“Muhammad Ali,” 8 p.m., PBS, rerunning at 10, setting up Wednesday’s finale). And the third chapter of “Impeachment” (10 p.m. FX) finds Paula Jones – wonderfully played by Annaleigh Ashford – overwhelmed by domineering forces on both sides.
