TV highlights for the week of Oct. 7

The Voice, 8 p.m., NBC Billie Joe Armstrong, Mary J. Blige, Rob Thomas and Michael Buble act as advisers for the team members, but we all know Billie Joe isn't really in the right frame of mind to help anyone right now.

SEASON PREMIERE Gossip Girl, 9 p.m., CW Everyone goes looking for Serena. Did you happen to check some movie auditions? Blake Lively's out looking for work after this final season ends.

Jane's Journey, 8 p.m., Animal Planet Go see how Dr. Jane Goodall became the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees. Hint: It had nothing to do with Project X.

SEASON PREMIERE Keyshia Cole: Family First, 10 p.m., BET Did you not get enough Keyshia Cole on The Way It Is? Well, here she is again, doing everything but singing R&B. Well, she does some of that, too.

SEASON PREMIERE Nashville, 10 p.m., ABC American Horror Story refugee Connie Britton shares a show with Heroes alum Hayden Panettiere as a veteran singer and a marketable cheesecake. You guess which is which.

SEASON PREMIERE Chicago Fire, 10 p.m., NBC A show about firefighters and paramedics in Chicago. Nobody's tried this since Rescue Me hit big, so let's see how it works out.

SEASON PREMIERE Beauty and the Beast, 9 p.m., CW It's basically a remake of the Ron Perlman/Linda Hamilton series from the '80s. Except now, the beast kinda hulks out whenever he gets mad. Let's try to borrow from one genre at a time, please.

Girl vs. Monster, 8 p.m., Disney Olivia Holt from Kickin' It plays a 15-year-old who pretty much acts out the storyline from the first Harry Potter book, except with monster hunting instead of magic. There's a lot of singing, though.

SEASON FinalE Cheer, 10 p.m., CMT The kids from Jersey come to Florida for the cheerleading world championships. Will they win it all? Tough to say, on a reality show. Yes, maybe?
