1) “Quantum Leap” debut, 10 p.m., NBC. On opening night of the official TV season, NBC has a winner. It keeps the fun of the original series, whiles adding some extra zing. Ben (Raymond Lee) is a physicist, adapting the program that used to propel Sam into the past … and into other people’s bodies. Once he gets there, however, he can’t remember anything. Back in the lab, people fret and his his fiancee (shown here, right) – whom he also doesn’t remember – tries to be helpful as a hologram.
2) “The Voice” opener, 8-10 p.m., NBC. The 22nd season starts, with two guys who have been there from th start: Carson Daly hosts, Blake Shelton is back in the swiveling red chair. He’s had eight champions so far…. his wife Gwen Stefani (back after a two-year gap) has had one in five tries … John Legend has one in six. The newcomer is Camila Cabello, 25, who was a teen contestant on a similar show (“X Factor”); she’s had two No. 1 hits.
3) “The U.S. and the Holocaust,” 8 p.m., PBS, rerunning at 10:22. It’s the mid-section of Ken Burns’ brilliant, three-night series, with the war building. Hitler attacks Russia and, late in this portion, Japan attacks Pearl Harbor. Fueled by Charles Lindbergh, Henry Ford and more, Americans resisted helping. Still, there were isolated successes. One plan slipped at least 2,000 people – artists (including Marc Chagall), intellectuals and others – into Spain.
4) ““The Cleaning Lady” season-opener, 9 p.m., Fox. Thony’s tangled life get another big jolt. A doctor in the Philippines, she found medical help for her son in the U.S. (where she works as a cleaning lady and lives with her sister’s family) and Mexico. Now her gangster friend is in prison and she’s part of his business … while her FBI friend scowls. Also, her estranged husband wants the family to return home; it’s a tough and pivotal hour.
