Worth Watching: ‘Bachelor’ vs. ‘America’s Got Talent: The Champions,’ a New Look for ‘Roadshow’

A selective critical checklist of notable Monday TV:

America’s Got Talent: The Champions (8/7c, NBC): Viewers clearly have an appetite for high-concept reality TV this winter, with strong opening numbers last week for Fox’s ridiculous The Masked Singer and NBC’s Dwayne Johnson-fueled The Titan Games. So hopes are high as NBC spins off its hit summer talent show with an international edition, featuring fan favorites from past seasons and breakouts from international versions of Talent. With Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Terry Crews as host, 10 acts compete in the opening episode for judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel. Two will advance to the finals: one with a Golden Buzzer, and another sent on by a panel of AGT super-fans.
