Tonight is the series premiere of Spouse vs. House on TLC at 10/9c. Featuring design expert Ryan Brown, the show is part design drama and part relationship renovation. In each episode, a couple is given $25,000 to make over three rooms of their house. But, before they make any design decisions, they’re told that she has to move out of the house for three weeks, and he’s left to handle the renovation alone – leaving her to wonder how well he knows her taste. While he’s struggling to make it work, she meets with Ryan to create her dream space in a replicated room, the “doll’s house.” Finally, both looks are revealed and they discover if their style choices are closely married or worlds apart.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of The Electric Barbarellas on MTV at 11/10c. Five young women with big dreams and even bigger personalities share a common goal of making it in today’s competitive music industry in MTV’s newest series. As they work to achieve their goal of stardom, they must overcome the drama that is sure to come when a group of dynamic women live, work and play together. The show will document how this all-girl group came together to establish their music careers, pulling back the curtain on what makes them tick. The audience will see how they strive for success, with emotions and infighting running rampant through the Hollywood Hills home they share as they prepare for the performance of their lives that could make their careers, or break them. Each week in the six episode arc, each member of the group will share their personal stories, as well as their brutally honest assessment each one has about the other. Through it all, they share a love of music, with each of the girls writing their own lyrics and melodies, as well as playing instruments on their first CD entitled, “Strange World.”
 
Finally, tonight is the season finale of Justified on FX at 10/9c, as well as a new episode of Are We There Yet? on TBS at 8/7c, followed by the season finale at 8:30/7:30c.
