Summer series continue to come to a close as the fall season finally kicks in with new offerings from NBC and Fox. Here's what to watch and what to avoid on television this week:
"Bachelor Pad" 7:30 p.m., ABC: The season ends tonight.

"The Voice" 7 p.m., NBC: Season 3 begins with all four celebrity judges returning.
"CBS Fall Preview" 7:30 p.m., CBS: The eyeball network is only airing four new series this fall and none of them are very smutty. That makes the choice of "2 Broke Girls" stars Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs a surprising choice to introduce them.
"Master Chef" 8 p.m., Fox: Christine fights Josh in a culinary battle for this season's title. Let's hope they don't get carried away with the knives.
"Intervention" 9 p.m., A&E: Not-for-profit drug and alcohol treatment center Austin Recovery helps to save the life of a mom who is also an alcoholic and meth addict.

"The X Factor" 7 p.m., Fox: New judges Demi Lovato and Britney Spears join Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid in the season premiere.
"Damages" 8 p.m., DirecTV: That's all she wrote. The series concludes tonight.
"Guys with Kids" 9 p.m., NBC: I'm only mentioning this awful excuse for a new sitcom to remind you to skip it.
"America's Got Talent" 7 p.m., NBC: Justin Bieber guest stars as this season's winner is crowned.
"Glee" 8 p.m., Fox: Season 4 begins with Rachel in New York and the McKinley glee club recruiting.

"Shark Tank" 7 p.m., ABC: An entrepreneur tries to sell the sharks on a belt-buckle drink holder.
"Touch" 7 p.m., Fox: The new season doesn't begin until the end of October, but Fox found an unused episode from Season 1 somewhere, so here ya go.
