9PM | NBC – SERIES PREMIERE
The Voice Carson Daly hosts and Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are the mentors/coaches/judges in this new reality singing competition in which wannabe pros try to win a recording contract. The twist, in tonight’s part one of the auditions: The judges can’t see the singers perform – they can only listen to them – until they’ve decided whether or not they’re talented enough to continue on in the competition. I know, I know, we didn’t really need an American Idol knock-off, especially with Simon Cowell‘s X Factor coming in the fall and another season of America’s Got Talent on tap for summer, but I have to admit, with AI turning out to be a disappointment this season, and that intriguing twist of the blind auditions, The Voice is definitely worth checking out.

(ALL TIMES ET)

10PM | MTV – 3RD SEASON PREMIERE
16 & Pregnant
– Yup, I’ve read all the arguments against the show, and it’s true that the celeb mags have helped turn the teen mamas, unfortunately, into D-list celebs. Still, it’s tough to imagine that the series hasn’t opened some teenage eyeballs to the truth about just how devastating becoming a teen mom can be. In tonight’s season opener, a teen mom not only has the usual stresses of teen mommyhood to deal with, but she’s also being torn between her babydaddy and her twin sister, both who are demanding her attention.
