What to Watch: January 4

'The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love' (8PM, ABC) season 14 premiere
'On the Wings of Love'?! Oh, right, because this year's 'Bachelor' -- who's also one of last season's 'Bachelorette' rejects -- is commercial pilot Jake Pavelka. After being cast off by Jillian Harris, Pavelka is joined by Harris and the man she did choose -- Ed Swiderski -- in tonight's opener, where he'll get his former co-stars' help in paring down the group of 25 wannabe Mrs. Pavelkas into a group of 15 women who desperately want one of his roses. How desperate are the women? One tells Pavelka she'll "cut a bitch" to win his heart (run, Jake, run!), while another tries to woo him with a naughty offer ... in Cambodian. But that may turn out to be one of the season's tamer moments if the rumors are true and one of the contestants is revealed to be having an affair with someone else in 'The Bachelor' abode.'The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love' (8PM, ABC) season 14 premiere
