Tonight is the series premiere of Alaska: The Last Frontier on Discovery Channel at 10/9c. The show introduces viewers to the Kilcher family and their isolated community outside Homer, Alaska. The Kilchers, lead by patriarch Atz Kilcher, have cultivated and lived on their homestead for generations. These men and women of the wild live off the land, spending the limited months of summer and fall gardening, hunting and fishing for food, gathering supplies from the land and preparing their animals’ safety in preparation for surviving the harsh Alaskan winters. Most live completely off the grid, with no running water and no electricity – and are proud of it.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of Hook, Line & Sisters on TLC at 10/9c. Some families open a bakery shop, while others hit the seas for deep-water fishing. This show follows the unusual lives of the Andersons, a family of fishermen who have only three months to brave the Alaskan wilds for a pay day. It is an inside look into a little explored territory – the wild, unpredictable and competitive world of deep-sea commercial fishing. Patriarch Dean Anderson is a grizzled sea dog known for his aggressive fishing as much as his salmon hauls. As captain of the Memry Anne, he squares off against rival fisherman, hungry sharks and his own hardworking family. His wife, Susan, spends as much time refereeing familial feuds as she does managing the family’s finances.
 
Tonight is also the season premiere of NY Ink on TLC at 9/8c.
 
Finally, tonight is the season finale of Beavis & Butt-head on MTV at 10/9c, followed by a new episode of Good Vibes at 10:30/9:30c and then the season finale of that at 11/10c, also on MTV.
