This Week on TV – 11/21/10-11/27/10

Tonight is the series premiere of Brew Masters on the Discovery Channel at 10/9c. It’s cold, it’s comforting, it’s beer….but for Sam Calagione, founder of one of America’s leading craft brewers Dogfish Head Brewery, beer is a passion, a business and a personal quest for best, most imaginative brews. The show follows Sam and his partners in suds as they travel the country and the world sourcing exotic ingredients and discovering ancient techniques to produce beers of astounding originality. From chocolate to mussels to tomatoes, Sam is constantly pushing his team and himself to innovate and celebrate the amazing world of beer and beer making. The imagination of the Dogfish Head team is matched only by the fun they inject into every facet of their jobs. Beer tasting meetings in the conference room with co-workers, a bocce ball league in the parking lot, filming original rap videos in the brewery plant, it’s all in a days work for Brew Masters.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of Top Gear on the History Channel at 10/9c. Based on the British version of the same name, the series, which showcases an offbeat celebration of automobiles and driving, is hosted by comedian and car buff Adam Ferrara, champion rally and drift racer Tanner Foust and racing analyst Rutledge Wood. Featuring super-cars, extreme stunts and challenges, car reviews and celebrity interviews, Top Gear is the home for anyone with a love of cars. The U.S. version will be chock-full of high-adrenaline action entertainment as it tracks the colorful history of the automobile as well as the eccentric adventures of its hosts with Top Gear’s customary wit and humor.
 
Tonight is also the season finales of The Next Iron Chef on the Food Network at 9/8c, and Luther on BBC America at 10/9c.
 
There are multiple specials tonight, but the biggest is the 3-hour 2010 American Music Awards on ABC. I’m excited, because New Kids on the Block are going to be there. Talk about my 7th grade crush! Woohoo! 😉
