Erica Durance stars as Alex Reid, a doctor whose fiancé's spirit (Michael Shanks) visits her while he remains in a coma on "Saving Hope."

“Saving Hope”

Series premiere, 9 p.m., NBC

“The Choice”
REALITY. Pauly D and celebrities of his ilk sit on mechanized chairs stolen from “The Voice” and pull “love handles” to spin around and see potential dates if they like the lines ladies are pitching while the guys’ backs are turned.
Series premiere, 9 p.m., Fox

“Take Me Out”
REALITY. Fox is high on dating hi-jinks this summer, serving up this new matchmaking contest as well. George Lopez leads this circus; 30 women size up potential suitors until the dating pool is whittled down and the man is given final say in who wins a date with him.

“Yo: The Story of Yo! MTV Raps”
DOCUMENTARY. The influential hip-hop show gets a look-back with tributes by original hosts Fab 5 Freddy, Ed Lover and Doctor Dre and a ton of artists who graced the stage — or just remember Tupac’s on-air freakout when talking about his firing from “Menace II Society” in ’93.
