1) “9-1-1,” 8 p.m. , Fox. Los Angeles life has been rough lately. The season’s first episode had a ransomware attack; the second had a citywide blackout. Now the blackout continues; the rapist who attacked Athena (Angela Bassett,shown hee in a previous episode) has escaped; Athena races to protect her family. And Maddie (Jennifer Love Hewitt), struggling with postpartum depression, makes a big decision.
2) “The Voice,” 8-10 p.m., NBC. We’re almost done with the audition phase – the part with spinning red chairs and sudden surprises. By the end of Tuesday’s hour, each coach will have 12 singers. Meanwhile, “Dancing With the Stars” (8-10 p.m., ABC) has fewer dancers. Martin Kove, 75, was the first person eliminated – a frequent fate for older contestants. And Cody Rigsby left, at least for now; he tested positive for COVID, shortly after his dance partner, Cheryl Burke, did.
3) “Bob (Hearts) Abishola,” 8:30 p.m., CBS. The season’s first two episodes, set in Nigeria, were a huge departure. Bob and Abishola married, with scenes that were big, broad, flashy … and not nearly as clever as this show usually is. Now the couple returns home and, we hope, returns to normal. Abishola re-decorates Bob’s home; then everyone else comments on her taste.
4) “NCIS: Hawaii,” 10 p.m., CBS. Why would someone kill a good-hearted guy who helps troubled kids straighten up and join the Marines? To find out, Kai goes undercover. He does that way too easily, but it’s still a good episode, featuring one of the show’s best characters.
5) “Midsomer Murders,” any time, www.acorn.tv. Here’s a chance to savor mysteries with opposite vibes. “Midsomer” is an English show with dark visuals and tangled, movie-length stories. This one centers on a small-town festival, where scarecrows seem increasingly ominous. By comparison, Acorn also has “My Life is Murder,” which Lucy Lawless makes in her native New Zealand. It has a bright, bubbly feel that makes stories – including today’s, about a jewery-store murder – seem kind of fun.
