Tonight is the series premiere of Bridalplasty on E! at 9/8c. The show brings together engaged women who are seeking complete image transformations before their big day – they want the dream wedding AND the dream body to go along with it. These brides-to-be are willing to do whatever it takes to beat the competition in order to get that perfection. Throughout the show, as they put together their dream wedding, each week one lucky bride will also get one piece of her dream body – going under the knife for one of the surgeries off her “wish list.” The last bride standing will have the opportunity to have an extreme plastic surgery makeover and win a wedding fit for the stars where she will unveil her shocking new look for the very first time to the man that she’s about to marry. Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow joins host Shanna Moakler (a celebrity bride herself) to guide the competitors in their quest for a flawless wedding.

Tonight is the series premiere of Strange Days with Bob Saget on A&E at 10/9c. This new real-life series that busts down barriers to investigate some of America’s most fascinating subcultures and corners of society. Documenting his journey around America, Saget immerses himself in different unusual cultures from the world of Bigfoot hunters to the trials of the pro-wrestling circuit. Known for his roles in Full House, as the host of America’s Funniest Home Videos, his edgy stand-up comedy routines and his guest starring turns on Entourage, Bob Saget definitely has a unique view of the world. His unflinching observations about offbeat people and lifestyles in his stage performances have sparked him to take a more in-depth, hands-on investigation of this subject matter. Throughout six thirty-minute episodes, Bob will ride on a Harley (well, in a sidecar) for 1,200 miles with hardcore bikers to try and get accepted into their club, search for Bigfoot with Bigfoot hunters, navigate the trials and tribulations of becoming a professional wrestler, search for the true Las Vegas through the eyes of three very different groups of people, rush a fraternity at Cornell University, and become a counselor in training at a sleepover camp for 11 – 14 year old kids.

Tonight is the season finale of Private Chefs of Beverly Hills on Food Network at 9/8c, and the 90-minute season finale of Sons of Anarchy on FX at 10/9c.

Tonight is the series premiere of Storage Wars on A&E at 10/9c, followed by a 2nd new episode at 10:30/9:30c. The show follows four professional buyers and their teams as they scour repossessed storage units in search of hidden treasure. Part gamblers, part detectives, these auction pros have found everything from coffins to the world’s most valuable comic book collection, paying as little as ten dollars for items valued in the millions. Each episode follows a group of bidders as they get a quick peek inside the units, aided only by the beam of a flashlight. They then must assess on the spot if the unit is worth a bid and how high they will actually go to grasp the gold. The high-stakes fun begins as we see if the resulting buy is full of mostly trash… or true treasure. Driven by Dan Dotson, one of the most successful and outrageous auctioneers in the country, the cast of buyers is as colorful and varied as the treasures they uncover.

There are 2 season premieres tonight, too. First up is the 75-minute premiere of Top Chef on Bravo at 10/9c, and next is the premiere of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew on VH1 at 10/9c, followed by a 2nd new episode at 11/10c.

The 10-part series will draw from Brad’s fascination with history, serving as a foundation to inform the past and reveal valuable stories about the future such as, why did earlier generations leave these hidden treasures for us?
