The Bachelorette

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

Season Premiere
Season 17 of The Bachelorette is a "journey" is of many firsts: It's the first season without Chris Harrison; the first season featuring a blow-up doll named Sandy; and the first time most of us have encountered the phrase "surgical skin salesman." In tonight's season premiere, Katie Thurston meets 30 men at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa in Santa Ana Pueblo, NM. One brings the aforementioned blow-up doll, another comes concealed in a giant, gift-wrapped box, and yes, there are plenty of jokes about masturbation. Oh, and speaking of firsts, tonight is probably the first time ABC censors allowed a joke about "dry bushes" to pass through standards and practices. —Kristen Baldwin
