Saturday

Saturday is the series premiere of Beverly Hills Groomer on Animal Planet on 10/9c. Artist Knox has big dreams. And they might seem unlikely for a kid who grew up in a rough south central, Los Angeles neighborhood trying to overcome what fate dealt him. Coming off his impressive victory on Animal Planet’s Groomer Has It last year and equipped with his winnings, Artist wants to strike while the iron’s hot and open his own dog grooming salon and school. Determined to prove that an underdog can be the top dog in the highly competitive grooming industry while still giving back, Artist decides to bring his infectious charm, signature style and grooming skills to the ultra chic streets of Beverly Hills. But will the wealthy throngs of Rodeo Drive welcome him with open arms? With $50,000 in his pocket, a mobile-grooming truck and his trusty dog Bumpy by his side, Artist begins his quest to make his dreams a reality.

Tonight is also the season premiere of Primeval on BBC America at 9/8c.

  3. Lauren Castoro says:

  4. Jenny says:

    I’m not sure when they changed it but last week sometime. CBS sent out a press release about the season finale being on a special night this Thursday night.
