What to Watch on Thursday: A Lionel-less 'Duets' debuts

Duets (8pm, ABC) - The premiere of yet another singing competition. This one previously had Lionel Richie attached, but after news broke that Richie owed the IRS some money, he suddenly had "scheduling conflicts" and was replaced by John Legend. And with that change, the show went -- for me -- from "must see" to "not really interested." The competition now has Kelly Clarkson, Legend, Jennifer Nettles and Robin Thicke searching for amateur singers to perform duets with. You know who sang the greatest duet of all time? Lionel Richie ("Endless Love" with Diana Ross).

So You Think You Can Dance (8pm, Fox) - Season 9 begins with auditions in Dallas and New York.

Rookie Blue (10pm, ABC) - In the Season 3 premiere, Andy returns to work following her three-month suspension. Later, a car accident caused by a drunken driver (William Shatner) leads to the reopening of a 7-year-old cold case.

J. Crew and the Man Who Dressed America (10pm, CNBC) - David Faber reports on the J. Crew clothing retailer, including the company's process of conceiving, creating and marketing a new line of clothing. Interviews with J.
