America’s Got Talent, Top Chef, and Steve Carell on The Colbert Report

9 p.m., NBC

America’s Got Talent

Things get tense as judges Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel decide which acts should make the Top 48. (Really? 48? That seems like a lot.)

9 p.m., BRAVO

Top Chef

This week, the chefs complete two slightly demeaning challenges. First, they must whip up some baby food for Padma Lakshmi’s little one. Then the chefs pair up to create breakfast, lunch, and dinner room-service meals for hotel guests. Ouch.

Series premiere, 10 p.m., BBC America

The Choir

In the American premiere of this British reality show, choirmaster Gareth Malone begins his worldwide search for singing talent in Middlesex, England, with the hopes of creating a competition-ready group in just nine months.
