Tuesday TV: New Summer Shows Begin

Blood-and-TreasureA week after the networks proudly announced new fall shows of advertisers, they start rolling out their much lower-grade summer shows which they never mentioned.

First up is “Blood & Treasure” (CBS, 9 p.m.), an international spy vs. terrorist caper that pairs Matt Barr as a former FBI agent and antiquities expert paired with an art thief (Sofia Pernas), to take down a terrorist who funds his campaigns with stolen antiquities, swooping down on Antony and Cleopatra’s grave. From the action to the settings to the sexual tension, it sounds like “Whiskey Cavalier” — which was just canceled.

A winner is named on the two hour finale of “The Voice” (NBC, 9 p.m.), where final competitor are Gyth Rigdon, Maelyn Jarmon, Dexter Roberts and Andrew Sevener, who will all be overshadowed by special guests Taylor Swift with Brendon Urie, BTS, Jonas Brothers, Halsey, DJ Khalid, OneRepublic and Hootie & the Blowfish.

Politics is on the mind of the comedian in her latest standup special “Wanda Sykes: Not Normal” (Netflix, streaming), and why not?

In the fifth season finale of “black-ish” (ABC, 9 p.m.), Junior’s job offer to work for the hip hop group Migos conflicts with continuing college.

Season three of “American Housewife” (ABC, 8 p.m.) ends with a musical installment, and Katie going “full Westport.”

Gibbs is asked to take down drug dealers in the season 16 finale of “NCIS” (CBS, 8 p.m.).

Lawrence moves out of the house and in with a girlfriend on the series finale of “The Kids Are Alright” (ABC, 8:30 p.m.), the alright comedy that wasn’t renewed after its first season.

It only took six episodes to get to the end of the first season of “Bless This Mess” (ABC, 9:30 p.m.).

On “The Bold Type” (Freeform, 8 p.m.), Kat seeks justice through social media.

The 50th anniversary of Woodstock and the Stonewall uprising are covered on this week’s episode of “1969” (ABC, 10 p.m.).

Gwen and Bob fight over the tone of “Chicago” on “Fosse / Verdon” (FX, 10 p.m.).

The top six on “MasterChef Junior” (Fox, 8 p.m.) try to take over a Michelin star restaurant.

On “The 100” (CW, 9 p.m.), Clarke tries to make amends for her past.

Patricia deals with her diagnosis on “The Village” (NBC, 8 p.m.).

On “Ladies Night” (BET, 10 p.m.), the Salt N Pepa Vegas residency isn’t going as planned.

The special “Bermuda Triangle: The New Secrets” (Travel, 9 p.m.) may at least have scenery worthy of the Travel channel.

Things are super freezing on “Deadliest Catch” (Discovery, 9 p.m.).

Morning after guilt settles in on “Games People Play” (BET, 9 p.m.).

“Mental Samurai” (Fox, 9 p.m.) has its season finale.

A sinkhole is a problem on “Good Bones” (HGTV, 9 p.m.).

It’s prom season for “7 Little Johnstons” (TLC, 10 p.m.).

“Texicanas” (Bravo, 10 p.m.) has a Mariachi Mass.

More “meet cute” stories on Turner Classic Movies, with “The Glass Bottom Boat” (8 p.m.), “Sunday in New York” (10 p.m.), “The Mating Game” (midnight), “The Mating Game” (midnight), “Looking for Love” (2 a.m.), “Viva Las Vegas” (3:30 p.m.) and “Dangerous When Wet” (5 a.m.). Earlier, there are tales of cheating and jealousy with “Wives Under Suspicion” (6 a.m.), “An Innocent Affair” (7:15 a.m.), “Dry Summer” (8:45 a.m.), “The Man Who Cheated Himself” (10:30 a.m.), “La Chienne” (12:30 p.m.), “Scarlet Street” (3 p.m.), “The Prowler” (4:45 p.m.) and “The Pitfall” (6:30 p.m.).
