Dancing With the Stars

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

After earning the first "10" of the season last week on Dancing With the Stars, can Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir keep the momentum going tonight with his Salsa to “On The Floor” by Jennifer Lopez featuring Pitbull? Hopefully it doesn't land him on the with a 6. Elsewhere, Monica Aldama and Jeannie Mai will be dancing the Rumba; Kaitlyn Bristowe and AJ McLean will dance the Samba; Vernon Davis and Skai Jackson are both dancing the Cha Cha; Justina Machado and Nelly will dance the Viennese Waltz; Nev Schulman is dancing Jazz; and Chrishell Stause is dancing Contemporary. And if that's not enough dancing for you, judge Derek Hough will get out from behind the desk to hit the floor with Hayley Erbert to dance a special Paso Doble. And you know that's going to be muy caliente. —Gerrad Hall

The Voice

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

Season Premiere

Season 19 of The Voice is going to look a little different. Social distancing requirements will see the spinning red chairs of coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Gwen Stefani further apart and a virtual audience cheering on contestants from home. The four superstars will adapt as they search for talent — returning coach Stefani, for example, will be equipped with a cannon to give her artists their “Team Gwen” T-shirts. What won’t change is the amazing performances from the talented singers, the coaches bickering as they state their cases, and many things The Voice fans have loved throughout the seasons. Says Clarkson, “I’m really stoked to be back for season 19. I think what makes this show special is even more important this season. Just a singular voice moving all of us."
