NBC features a night of fresh new premieres tonight. Their one-two punch of “The Voice” and “The Enemy Within” looks to shake up the network schedule. Outside of NBC, there are plenty of new and exciting programs on TV tonight. Read through and see what you should watch tonight on TV.
PICK OF THE DAY
“The Voice” (NBC) Season 16 Premiere at 8 p.m. ET
It’s that time of year to begin the search for America’s next great vocalist. “The Voice” returns to NBC at 8 p.m. ET with a fresh new crop of singers, and even a new judge. That’s right, Grammy winning artist John Legend joins Kelly Clarkson, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton in the revolving judges seats. Legend gets thrown into the deep end of the first episode as he makes his way through the blind auditions process. Viewers of “The Voice” will get even more music celebrities later on. Once the Battle Rounds begin, Charlie Puth (Team Adam), Khalid (Team John), Kelsea Ballerini (Blake Kelly) and Brooks & Dunn (Team Blake) will all serve as advisors for a given team.
“The Enemy Within” (NBC) at 10 p.m. ET
We all have some level of darkness within in. NBC’s latest new drama, “The Enemy Within” explores this in its pilot episode at 10 p.m. ET. Jennifer Carpenter headlines as Erica Shepherd, a CIA operative that becomes the greatest American traitor. However, FBI Agent Will Keaton (Morris Chesnut) must strike up a “Silence of the Lambs”-esque relationship with Shepherd as he needs her help in catching another criminal she has a history with. The tagline touts “There are two sides to every treason.” Hopefully NBC keeps the twist and turns coming throughout the show’s freshman season.
Who better to take us through the most chilling of murder stories than rapper Ice-T? Oxygen’s show “In Ice Cold Blood” returns for season 2 at 8 p.m. ET tonight. Ice-T hosts an evening of murder tales that includes re-enactments, surveillance footage and interviews with people involved in the tales. The first episode of season 2 deals with a girl next door type who was found murdered one Thanksgiving weekend. Ice-T reacts much like we do to the ghastly and gruesome tales that unfold over the episode.
MOVIES/SPECIALS ON TV
Filmmaking can be a therapeutic art form for any artist. Pendleton Correctional Facility looks to apply this thesis to their inmates. HBO’s latest documentary, “It’s a Hard Truth, Ain’t It,” chronicles Pendleton’s filmmaking program. Through the program, the institution hopes the art of filmmaking will allow inmates to work through their mysteries. This new form of therapy hopes that this form of self-expression can be a healing form of rehabilitation. The HBO documentary airs tonight at 10 p.m. ET.
Meanwhile, for those who haven’t had enough of awards season, there’s another awards show they can watch tonight. Hallmark hosts the “27th Annual Movieguide Awards” at 10 p.m. ET. The show looks to highlight the most entertaining and uplifting movies of the past year. Prizes include “Best Movie for Families,” “Best Movie for Mature Audiences,” “Epiphany Prizes for Inspiring Movies & TV,” “Faith & Freedom Awards for Movies & TV” and “Christie Peters Grace Award for Most Inspiring Performance.” Last year saw prizes go to films as varied as “The Boss Baby,” “The Darkest Hour” and more.
