We'll have winners in each this week. I'd say the NBA Finals seem a lot closer. Game 6, at 9 p.m. Tuesday on ABC, could determine whether the Miami Heat or San Antonio Spurs will collect the championship. A Game 7, if necessary, would start at 9 p.m. Thursday, also on ABC. The Disney-owned network is hoping for a Game 7 and the high ratings.
The three remaining acts on "The Voice" perform at 8 p.m. Monday on NBC. Danielle Bradbery, a 16-year-old natural, could be one of the best discoveries ever on a singing contest. She is the definite front-runner against the surprising Michelle Chamuel and the charming Swon Brothers. The winner will be named in a splashy finale that starts at 9 p.m. Tuesday. Set to perform are Cher, Christina Aguilera, Pitbull, Nelly, Florida Georgia Line and Bruno Mars (in a performance taped before his mother's death). "America's Got Talent" will shift to 8 p.m. Tuesday.
Tuesday will be a pivotal night on "So You Think You Can Dance." The dance contest reveals its Top 20 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
Monday will be a big day for CNN, which unveils its latest morning show, "New Day." The hosts are Kate Bolduan and Chris Cuomo, who is fondly remembered by many for his stint on ABC's "Good Morning America." Michaela Pereira is the news anchor on the show that will air from 6 to 9 a.m. weekdays. Can this team help CNN make headway in the busy morning ratings race? "Early Start With John Berman & Zoraida Sambolin" will air from 5 to 6 a.m.
"Hot in Cleveland" returns with a live episode at 10 p.m. Wednesday. It should be great fun to see guest star William Shatner working in a live forum. Another guest is Brian Baumgartner of "The Office."
Here's a programming note and warning: Lifetime premieres "Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret" at 8 p.m. Saturday. Tania Raymonde plays the convicted murderer, and Jesse Lee Soffer plays her victim, Travis Alexander. Of course, you may have seen more than enough of the trial and will want to pass. That feeling is perfectly understandable.
