‘America’s Got Talent’
Did “American Idol” put you to sleep this season? Here’s your wake-up call. The talent show where anything goes returns for its fifth season, and you never know what you’ll see: Singers, dancers, jugglers, magicians, rappin’ grandmas … they’ve got it all. You’ll also see a new face on the judges table, where Howie Mandel replaces David Hasselhoff. The summer series kicks off with open auditions in Los Angeles. Nick Cannon hosts. 8 p.m. Tuesday, NBC.
Sunday: Gary Sinise and Joe Mantegna co-host the “National Memorial Day Concert.” Airing from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol, the annual event features appearances by, among others, Lionel Richie, Brad Paisley, Dennis Haysbert, Kelli O’Hara and Yolanda Adams. 8 p.m., PBS.
Monday: On “Hoarders,” we meet a woman who has built up a pile of clutter and a collection of more than 50 birds. Things are so bad that her husband has flown the coop. 9 p.m., A&E.
Tuesday: Is it so wrong to enjoy watching someone do a face plant on national TV? We think not. That’s why we’re stoked for the return of the human splat fest known as “Wipeout.” New events include Bruiseball and Love Handles Fling Set. 8 p.m., ABC.
Quick, hide the Twinkies! On “Losing It,” personal trainer/drill sergeant Jillian Michaels (“The Biggest Loser”) moves in with one family per week and tries to establish a healthier lifestyle in the home. Alas, that probably includes less TV-watching. 10 p.m., NBC.
The Garden State seems to be all the rage on reality TV. Now comes “Jersey Couture,” a show that follows the adventures of family that runs a fancy dress shop. 10 p.m., Oxygen.
Wednesday: Picking up where the movie left off, the new sitcom “Are We There Yet?” stars Terry Crews (“Everybody Hates Chris”) and Essence Atkins (“Half and Half”) as a newly married couple struggling to juggle work and their blended family. The series opens with back-to-back episodes. 9 p.m., TBS.
A lot of us want to get away from our families, but on a new episode of “In Plain Sight,” Mary finds herself dealing with a woman who is desperate to do so. Seems that her clan is deep into organized crime. 10 p.m., USA.
Thursday: As “The Real Housewives of New York City” wraps up its third season, Jill and Bethenny meet for lunch in hopes of halting their long-running feud. Will they attain peace? Don’t hold your breath. 10 p.m., Bravo.
Friday: Just how you want to spend your Friday night: Watching kids who are smarter than you. The “2010 Scripps National Spelling Bee” has little brainiacs, ages 8 to 15, competing for the title — all without the help of computer spell-check. 8 p.m., ABC.
