    9-1-1 likes to go big. After ending last season's finale with an earthquake, the producers are kicking things up a notch for the start of Season 3, with last week's season premiere ending just as a tsunami appeared to be racing toward  the Santa Monica Pier. This week, the show is going all out, and when that's your course of action, you have no choice but to follow in James Cameron's footsteps. In this case, that meant taking the production down to Mexico and shooting in the tanks used to film Titanic.

    NEW EPISODE: Emergencies don't get much bigger than this. In tonight's episode of 9-1-1, an enormous tsunami hits the Santa Monica Pier, ripping through seaside attractions on an epic scale, and by the end of the evening, fans will know if Christopher and Buck will live or die.  8:00 PM ET on FOX

    NEW EPISODE: If you've been dying to see James Van der Beek dance the Rumba, or Sean Spicer do the Cha Cha Cha, tonight's your lucky night. It's movie night on Dancing With the Stars, with the remaining teams dancing to songs inspired by the celebrities favorite movies. 8:00 PM ET on ABC

    NEW EPISODE: Blake Shelton may be playing the part of the diva on this season of The Voice, repeatedly reminding everyone that he's the last of the original judges still standing, but based on last week's auditions — which saw a four chair turnaround — it seems the judges can agree on something. The blind auditions continue in tonight's episode. 8:00 PM ET on NBC

    NEW EPISODE: Candy faces a hostile audience when she meets with a group of women who object to her work on The Deuce. Meanwhile, Frankie and Vincent have a noteworthy birthday celebration. 9:00 PM ET on HBO
