"THE BACHELOR" (Monday, February 24 & Tuesday, February 25, 8:00-10:00 p.m., ET)

Juan Pablo Galavis, the former Venezuelan soccer player, stepped out of the limo to meet last season's Bachelorette, Desiree Hartsock, and into the hearts of female fans across the country who were taken with his sincerity, easy-going charm and good looks. The dashing single dad, very devoted to his daughter, Camila, was ready to find love. Juan Pablo became one of the most talked about men of the season, despite failing to win Desiree's heart. The fans spoke and now Juan Pablo is back for his own chance to find the love of his life, wife and stepmother to his daughter.

Hosted by Chris Harrison, "The Bachelor" is a production of Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton and Alycia Rossiter are the executive producers.

"BLACK BOX" (Thursday, April 24 10:00-11:00 p.m. ET)

Catherine Black is a world-famous neurologist at the state-of-the-art medical institution known as "The Cube." Catherine is brilliant, beautiful, and at the top of her game, though she's hiding a secret of her own: she's bipolar. Each week, the doctors on staff attempt to unravel the mysteries of the brain and are constantly challenged by cases never-before-seen on television. The medical stories are moving, bizarre and a visual feast. The personal stories are riveting. The patients have rare, highly visual, often hallucinogenic and startling conditions, which we'll see through their eyes as Catherine diagnoses and treats them.

"Black Box" stars Kelly Reilly as Catherine Black, Ditch Davey as Dr. Ian Bickman, David Ajala as Will Van Renseller, Ali Wong as Dr. Lina Lark, Laura Fraser as Reagan Black, David Chisum as Joshua Black, Siobhan Williams as Esme Black with Terry Kinney as Dr. Owen Morely and Vanessa Redgrave as Dr. Hartramph.

"Black Box" was written by Amy Holden Jones ("Mystic Pizza," "Indecent Proposal"). Simon Curtis ("My Week with Marilyn") is the director. Ilene Chaiken ("The L Word"), Amy Holden Jones, Bryan Singer ("House," "X-Men"), Anne Thomopoulos ("Oz," "From the Earth to the Moon"), Oly Obst, Gary Michael Walters ("Drive," "Bobby"), David Lancaster ("Drive," Broadway's "The Bridges of Madison County") and Michel Litvak are the executive producers. The series is a production of Bold Films Television.

"DANCING WITH THE STARS" (Monday, March 17, 8:00-10:00 p.m., ET)

"Dancing With the Stars" returns for its 18th season with an all-new celebrity cast. The competition will feature twelve celebrities who will brave the dance floor for the very first time. Each week, these celebrities will leave their comfort zones and endure hours of grueling rehearsals to master technical choreography and entertaining performances. In the end, only one star will rise above the rest to be crowned champion and win the coveted mirror-ball trophy.

Hosted by Emmy(R) Award-winning Tom Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Brooke Burke-Charvet ("Dancing with the Stars" Season 7 Champion), "Dancing with the Stars" is the hit series in which celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which are judged by renowned ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

"Dancing with the Stars" is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions. Conrad Green, Ashley Edens-Shaffer and Joe Sungkur are executive producers. Alex Rudzinski directs.

"MIND GAMES" (Tuesday, February 25, 10:00-11:00 p.m. ET)

With a little bit of science, a dash of con-artistry, plus a smattering of Jedi mind tricks, brothers Ross (Christian Slater) and Clark Edwards (Steve Zahn) can tailor a plan to influence any life-altering situation, thereby making their clients' dreams come true and their nightmares go away. They are partners in Edwards and Associates, an unusual business based on the belief that people's decisions are influenced by their environment in ways they're not aware.

By using the hard science of psychological manipulation, the brothers commit to solving their clients' problems. With Clark's expertise and Ross's con artist ways, each believing to know what makes people tick, and with their unique staff to help them, the brothers will use psychology and science to offer clients an alternative to their fates.

"Mind Games" stars Steve Zahn as Clark, Christian Slater as Ross, Megalyn Echikunwoke as Megan, Gregory Marcel as Miles, Jaime Ray Newman as Sam, and Cedric Sanders as Latrell.

Written and executive-produced by Kyle Killen, the series is also executive-produced by Keith Redmon, Timothy Busfield and Donald Todd. "Mind Games" is a 20th Century Fox Television production.
