The new fall season started last week. We’ll try to get all of the new show premieres and season premieres in What to Watch over the coming weeks. Check out our full 2018 Fall TV Preview.

The Neighborhood (8 p.m., CBS) - Max Greenfield (“New Girl”) and Beth Behrs (“2 Broke Girls”) move with their young son from the Midwest to a black neighborhood in Los Angeles. They land next door to a family led by Cedric the Entertainer and Tichina Arnold (“Martin”) — and Cedric isn’t at all pleased to have them there. Cedric’s family includes two adult sons (Sheaun McKinney and Marcel Spears, who steal nearly all of their scenes) and he cares deeply about preserving the culture of the neighborhood. The anti-gentrification theme is clearly relevant and there are some great moments, some funny, some deep.

The Voice (8 p.m., NBC) - Blind auditions continue. We have two people from North Carolina on teams so far. 

Dancing with the Stars (8 p.m., ABC) - The theme is “New York City Nights.”

Happy Together (8:30 p.m., CBS) - This new sitcom is about a married couple (Damon Wayans Jr. of “Happy Endings” and Amber Stevens West of “The Carmichael Show”) who take in a young international pop star. The only funny part is when the couple records songs for the outgoing message on their answering machine, and that’s not enough to carry the episode.

9-1-1 (9 p.m., Fox) - The first responders continue to deal with the fallout of the massive earthquake, including the rescue of victims from a collapsing high-rise hotel.
