1) “America’s Got Talent” season-opener, 8-10:01 p.m., NBC. For good or bad, the summer season is here. ABC already has “Holey Moley” and “The Chase” at 8 and 9 p.m. Tuesdays; now the summer ratings-leader returns. Auditions begin, with Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara as judges and Terry Crews hosting; they’re shown here.
2) “Dancing With Myself,” debut, 10:01 p.m., NBC. During the pandemic, lots of people were dancing alone on TikTok and beyond. Now they show off – free-styling or copying the moves of Shakira, one of judges. In the opener, we meet a teacher, two high school students, a flight attendant, a TV weatherman, a plus-size model; and six more, competing for $25,000. It’s a good idea, pushed way too far. Everyone – judges, host, audience – fills each moment with a cascade of noise and praise.
3) “Theodore Roosevelt” conclusion, 8 p.m., History, The opener (rerunning at 5:30 p.m.) saw Roosevelt loar through life, then languish in the vice-presidency, Now President McKinley has been killed and an action guy takes over the building, which he renames the White House. He builds the national parks, pushes government for the common man … and shows some fatal flaws, especially on race. This compelling portrait also shows his painful grasp fpr a post-presidency comeback.
4) “Crime Scene Kitchen” and “So You Think You Can Dance” reruns, 8 and 9 p.m., Fox. This was supposed to be a big night for Fox, with the opening of two key summer shows — “Lego Masters” and “Fantasy Island.” Then, alas, both were held back until the fall or beyond. Instead, here’s the rerun of last summer’s “Crime Scene” opener and of the May 18 season-opener of “Dance.”
5) “Tom Swift” debut, 9 p.m., CW. New scripted episodes are scarce on the broadcast networks this summer – especially with “Fantasy Island” and “Coroner” pushed back to fall. But they continue on cable (including a new “Mayans M.C.” at 10 p.m. today) and on CW. Like the hero in youth novels a century ago, this Tom Swift is an optimistic inventor; unlike him, he’s Black and gay and rich and designing a Saturn voyage. Attractive actors are tangled in overwrought dialog,
