1) “The Late Show,” 11:35 p.m., CBS. David Letterman (shown here) finally visits his old domain. For 12 years, he hosted “The Late Show” in the Ed Sullivan Theatre, sometimes getting huge ratings. But he left in 2015 and Stephen Colbert took over. Letterman, now 76, has confined himself to a one-on-one interview show for Netflix. He did 22 episodes over four years, but the last was almost a year ago. Now he visits Colbert’s show.
2) “Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test,” 9 p.m., Fox. Tom Sandoval, the former reality-show bartender, is having mixed success this fall. On “The Masked Singer,” he was promptly ousted; on “Special Forces,” he’s one of six survivors (of 14), with two episodes left. Two athletes (Dez Bryant and Robert Horry) dropped out, but two (Bode Miller and Erin Jackson) remain, plus reality folks — Sandoval, Nick Viall, Tyler Cameron and JoJo Siwa.
3) “Kennedy” conclusion, 7-10 p.m., History. A three-night, eight-hour documentary wraps up. The first two hours (a rerun at 7 and new one at 8) view John Kennedy’s arrival as the youngest president in U.S. history. He faces the Bay of Pigs disaster and the Cuban missile crisis and begins new approaches to civil rights and to Russia. The last hour views his final half-year and his legacy, two days before the 60th anniversary of his death.
4) “The Voice,” 8-10 p.m., NBC. Last week, the “knockout round” ended with a non-knockout. Many contestants, we were told, are too good to oust; each judge can restore one. We may learn their choices tonight, in a show that recaps what’s happened so far. At 10, a “That’s My Jam” rerun has last season’s “Voice” judges – Ariana Grande and Blake Shelton vs. Kelly Clarkson and John Legend.
5) “Let’s Make a Deal,” 9 p.m., CBS. Ever since it yanked “Loteria Loca,” CBS has had holes to fill. Its plan is to have a new, primetime “Deal” today and next Monday. The latter will follow “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” which was originally set for Thanksgiving weekend, then delayed to Nov 27.
