The new fall season starts this 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.
Manifest (10 p.m., NBC) - The plot of this new drama involves an airplane full of passengers en route to New York from Jamaica, which after a brief but intense bit of turbulence, lands unscathed. But when the passengers disembark, they learn their plane has been missing for more than five years. The story centers around the Stone family, returning from a vacation but divided when some members opt for a different flight. We’ll learn more about the other passengers and how they’re all intertwined as the series progresses. “Manifest” has been compared to the old ABC series “Lost,” but it has much more of a “Twilight Zone” feel for me. Josh Dallas (“Once Upon a Time”) and Melissa Roxburgh (“Star Trek: Beyond”) lead the cast.
Also on tonight . . .
The Voice (8 p.m., NBC) - Blind auditions kick off Season 15. This season’s judges are Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson.

The Resident (8 p.m., Fox) - In the Season 2 premiere, a blackout requires the staff to treat their patients without the help of any technology.
Dancing with the Stars (8 p.m., ABC) - Season 27 starts.
Magnum P.I. (9 p.m., CBS) - CBS resurrects one of the most entertaining shows of the ‘80s, a show that owed much of its appeal to the charisma of its lead: Tom Selleck. It has Jay Hernandez as a handsome but mustache-less Thomas Magnum, and the Higgins character now under the care of the beautiful Perdita Weeks. The plot of the pilot, at least, relies heavily on Magnum’s military past, but it’s not clear how much of that will carry through the season.
9-1-1 (9 p.m., Fox) - In the second part of the Season 2 premiere, a massive earthquake rocks Los Angeles and first responders rush to rescue victims from a crumbling high-rise hotel.
The Good Doctor (10 p.m., ABC) - Glassman must face a difficult decision about his health in the Season 2 premiere.
Bull (10 p.m., CBS) - In the Season 3 premiere, Bull returns to work with a new rich client: an insurance company being sued because it denied coverage of a liver transplant.
