The Bachelorette

ABC | 8:00 pm

Quick-witted marketing manager Katie Thurston, who became an instant fan favorite during Season 25 of "The Bachelor" by being unabashedly herself while pursuing Bachelor Matt James, is in the driver's seat in Season 17 of this female-driven spinoff, which is being filmed in New Mexico. Thurston definitely is ready to find a mate with whom she can build a life, but he'll have to be someone who can laugh along with her. Chris Harrison is sitting out this season as host, replaced by former Bachelorettes Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe.
