1) “The Cleaning Lady,” 9:02 p.m., Fox. After a one-week baseball break, the show booms back with a tough and involving hour (shown here) — a strong one for Oliver Hudson (right). Once a comedy actor like his mom (Goldie Hawn) and sister (Kate Hudson), he’s excellent as Garrett, an FBI guy facing tragedy (shown here) while trying to bring down the evil Kamdar, despite distractions: He’s hiding the fact that he killed Cortez; Thony’s hiding the fact that it was her nephew who pushed her husband to his death.
2) “9-1-1,” 8 p.m., Fox. Like “Cleaning Lady,” this is back from a baseball break. The team rushes to rescue an actress who says she’s “cursed”: Her career is fading and she keeps having nasty accidents.
3) “The Voice,” 8-10 p.m., NBC. Here’s the final night of three-way “knockouts,” a new addition this season: Coaches choose three people to perform together, with only one advancing. The losers do have one possibility: Each coach can “steal” one act. That’s followed at 10 by “Quantum Leap,” with Ben leaping into a 16-year-old boy’s body … and having a major revelation.
4) “Independent Lens,” 10 p.m., PBS. A decade ago, Kelsey Peterson’s life instantly transformed. She was 27 then, with a college degree in dance and certification as a CorePower yoga instructor. Then, in Wisconsin, she dove into Lake Superior and had a spinal-cord injury. She directed this film, in which she works on her new life (including dancing from a wheelchair) and volunteers for a cutting-edge trial.
5) ALSO: The terrific “Doc Martin” has another new episode today on www.acorn.tv. Also, this is opening day for the college men’s and women’s basketball seasons. There are games everywhere – as early as 11 a.m. ET – but most are confined to the ESPN+ streamer or ESPN3. A few conference channels have games and Fox Sports1 has a game (varying by region) at 6:30 p.m. ET.
