Top TV week of March 3: 'The Bachelor', 'The Americans', 'Bates Motel', 'Blacklist'


The Bachelor, 8 p.m., ABC

We're not proud of ourselves for condoning this special "The Women Tell All," in which the 23 ladies who didn't reach the final two spots for Juan Pablo's heart say nasty things about him. But, come on. You can't beat it in terms of catty entertainment.

SEASON PREMIERE Bates Motel, 9 p.m., A&E

Norma (Vera Farmiga) and Norman (Freddie Highmore) are back as TV's, um, strangest mother-son pair in this Psycho prequel's second season premiere.

The Blacklist, 10 p.m., NBC

If this show isn't careful, acting ham James Spader is going to chew his way through so much scenery there won't be anywhere to stage the next round of melodrama!


The Goldbergs, 9 p.m., ABC

This episode sounds like a blast. When mom Beverly's jewelry goes missing, her Goonies-obsessed son Adam rallies his friends for a treasure hunt like the one in the movie.


The Americans, 10 p.m., FX

Last week's premiere got season two of this sophisticated spy thriller starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as Soviet spies off to a strong, sexy start. This week keeps up that intense pace with another knock-out hour of television that sees Philip tying up loose ends on last week's mission and Elizabeth fretting about their children's safety (with good reason).

SERIES PREMIERE Bring It!, 10 p.m., Lifetime

The description for this new reality show is "If you like Dance Moms, check out this new series set in the world of competitive hip-hop dance." SOLD.


Suits, 9 p.m., USA

Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps guest stars in this new episode. And we still have enough Winter Olympics nostalgia to actually be excited about that.


Shark Tank, 9 p.m., ABC

Emotions run high tonight, starting with Mark Cuban's anger at a San Francisco engineer's pitch for a bicycle lighting system. What, Mark, do you hate safety?!

Enlisted, 9 p.m., Fox

This is your reminder that Fox's charming comedy about three brothers on a military base in Florida is still on, and still banished to Friday nights. Do everyone a favor and watch.
