TV highlights: ‘America’s Got Talent’ premiere; ‘Traffic Light’ finale


FINALE WATCH: “Traffic Light” (Fox at 9:30 p.m.). Status: Canceled. This couples comedy didn’t make it to Season 2. In the series finale, Mike and Lisa hope for a break with a babysitter — but wind up getting involved in lots of teen drama.

If you’re sick of those singing and dancing reality show competitions, “America’s Got Talent” (NBC at 8) promises a little something for everyone — jugglers, impressionists, contortionists and ventriloquists, in addition to singers and dancers. Season 6 kicks off Tuesday night with auditions in front of judges Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan, and host Nick Cannon.

“Great Performances” (MPT at 8) shows the “Carnegie Hall 120th Anniversary Concert” and features the New York Philharmonic, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, singer Audra McDonald and pianist Emanuel Ax, among others.

Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee are profiled in two-hour documentary “Lee and Grant” (History at 9), which looks at the generals’ impact on history and their most important battles.

The fishermen are hit with an arctic storm on “Deadliest Catch” (Discovery at 9), but in other news, the Time Bandit crew pulls an epic prank on the Northwestern.

New series “Million Dollar Decorators” (Bravo at 10) follows five interior designers in Los Angeles as they work on all sorts of ritzy properties. This comes with drama — in the premiere, one decorator’s latest project (a Beverly Hills guesthouse) is interrupted by a possible divorce, while another designer is focused on planning her birthday party.

Yet another weight-loss reality show hits the airwaves, this one from the producer of “Jersey Shore.” New series “Love Handles: Couples in Crisis” (Lifetime at 10) tracks overweight couples as they go to therapy to work on relationship issues and also try to get in better shape. Title of the first episode: “I Never Planned on Marrying a Fat Girl.”

“The Little Couple” (TLC at 10, 10:30) returns for Season 4 as Bill and Jen are still trying to start a family, and they head to the doctor for fertility treatments.

On “The Voice” (NBC at 10), the coaches match up the remaining two singers on their teams to face off in the last week of contestant battle rounds.
