The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on ABC

Series Debut

If Bachelor Pad and The Voice had a baby... well, it would be an abomination and we'd have to take it out behind the shed and put it down. But in this hybrid reality competition, 20 single wannabe singers mix and mingle while looking to "connect" with someone romantically and musically. It's got everything you know and love about The Bachelor (date cards, rose ceremonies, host Chris Harrison), plus more awkward serenades per episode than we usually see in an entire season of The Bachelorette. (Eventually the final "couples" will perform for illustrious judges including Jewel, Jason Mraz, and former Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher.) Contestants to watch include Rudi, a 24-year-old studio vocalist who says she's "dated all of L.A. already," and Michael Todd, a smarmy singer-songwriter who can't wait to perform his original composition "Hot Touch" for anyone who will listen. —Kristen Baldwin

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 10 p.m. on NBC

Season Premiere

NBC’s surprise treat from last summer makes a much-needed early return for its second season tonight. The reality competition has budding songwriters pitch their songs to an artist of the week, with hitmakers Ryan Tedder, Ester Dean, and Shane McAnally there to transform them into smashes — one of which the celebrity guest will record. Having country pop group Lady Antebellum as the first act visiting the show for a new song helps display what a prism the series can be, adding a reggae sound to what was once a standard backwoods drinking anthem. —Marcus Jones
