Tonight is the 2-hour series premiere of Alcatraz on FOX at 8/7c. From executive producer J.J. Abrams (Fringe, Lost, Alias), this new show follows a unique trio (Sarah Jones, Sons of Anarchy, Jorge Garcia, Lost, & Sam Neill, Jurassic Park) investigating the mystifying reappearance of 302 of Alcatraz’s most notorious prisoners and guards, 50 years after they vanished. The show also stars Parminder Nagra, Jason Butler Harner, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster, & Santiago Cabrera.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of Betty White’s Off Their Rockers on NBC at 9:30/8:30c. America’s favorite comedy sweetheart sends a fearless band of senior citizens to the streets to pull shockingly hilarious pranks on the younger generation in this new outrageously funny “hidden-camera” show unlike anything viewers have ever seen. As star of the series, the inimitable and charming White will be featured in brazenly funny sketches, providing saucy commentary between the pranks and sharing her engaging, comical pearls of wisdom. White stars in every “Rockers” episode in unpredictable comedy moments – reflecting her own unique comedic style – and she is also the on-camera host. White, a seven-time Emmy Award winner, will executive-produce the series, adapted from the hit Belgium series “Benidorm Bastards.” “People have been telling me that I’m “Off My Rockers” for years,” says White. “Now I can prove it!”
 
Finally, tonight is the series premiere of Lost Girl on Syfy at 10/9c. Anna Silk stars as seductress Bo, a Succubus (a powerful female entity in folklore) who feeds off sexual energy. Raised by human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door – until she “drained” her first boyfriend to death. In the premiere episode, Bo discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend who pass as humans while secretly feeding off them. Faced with choosing between an allegiance to the Dark or Light Fae clans, Bo takes the middle path between the human and Fae worlds while embarking on a mission to unlock the secrets of her origin. Lost Girl co-stars Kris Holden-Ried as Dyson, a homicide detective and Bo’s love interest; Ksenia Solo as Kenzi, Bo’s confidante; Zoie Palmer as Lauren, a doctor who competes for Bo’s heart; Rick Howland as Trick, the mysterious bartender at The Dal Riata Tavern, and K.C. Collins as Hale, Dyson’s partner on the force. Notable guest stars include Emmanuelle Vaugier as “The Morrigan,” the leader of the Dark Fae.

Tonight is the series premiere of on The CW at 9/8c. The show centers around modeling industry veteran Paul Fisher as he tries to bring together hundreds of small agencies around the world in a new venture called The Network. The Network will give Paul the leverage to change the industry from the inside out. He has two missions: to make sure agents in small towns no longer get screwed, and to empower models to take control of their careers and lead healthier lives.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of Ink Master on Spike TV at 10/9c. On this first-ever tattoo competition reality series, ten of the nation’s top tattoo artists from around the country will battle it out in permanent ink for a $100,000 cash prize, an editorial feature in the preeminent tattoo magazine Inked and the title of ‘Ink Master.’ Contestants will compete in various tattoo challenges that not only test the artists’ technical skills, but also their on-the-spot creativity, where they must create and execute an original tattoo on command. Challenges focus on different tattooing techniques, such as shading, line and proportion, and styles including photorealism, Tribal, American traditional, and pin-up. The show is hosted by Dave Navarro, who also serves as judge, alongside Chris Nunez and Oliver Peck.
 
Finally, tonight is the series premiere of Ragin’ Cajuns on Discovery Channel at 10/9c. The show takes a trip down the Mississippi deep into the Louisiana Bayou for the start of their 3-month long white shrimp season. It may sound like fun in the sun, but life in the bayou ain’t no day at the beach. Venice once was a thriving southern paradise, but just when these Bayou boys thought they had dug themselves out of the devastating hole that Hurricane Katrina created back in 2005, the oil spill of 2010 set them into another tailspin. Now the shrimping boats aren’t the only things struggling to stay afloat. If they can’t make it this season, their way of life and town may cease to exist. Feeling sorry for themselves, however, has never been an option. Between bar fights and boat fights, shrimping for food and scrimping for cash, these RAGIN’ CAJUNS work hard and play even harder.

Saturday

Saturday is the series premiere of Bayou Billionaires on CMT at 9/8c. In a modern day rags to riches story, the show tells the story of the Dowdens of Shreveport, La. – a hardworking family of modest means who recently discovered that their home sits on the fourth largest deposit of natural gas in the United States. After years of pinching pennies and balancing budgets, the over-the-top Dowdens are ready to enjoy the finer things in life, sparing no expense. It follows Gerald and Kitten and the rest of their family as they experience the perks of belonging to a brand new tax bracket. Each half-hour episode features this outrageous family reaping the benefits of their new fortune, from hiring personal trainers and exploring new business ventures, to traveling to places they never imagined they’d go. In the series premiere, the entire family takes the local country club by storm when they pay a visit to see how the other half lives.

Following that is the series premiere of My Big Redneck Vacation on CMT at 9:30/8:30c. Hosted by comedian Tom Arnold, the one-hour, 10-episode series follows the real-life, naturally-entertaining Clampet family, born and raised in the South, as they embark on a “fish out of water” experience by visiting a fancy beach rental in the Hamptons for the summer, indulging in the high-end lifestyle of the Upper East Coast and bringing their southern flare to any situation. The extended Clampet family members on board for this vacation include Chris and girlfriend Aimee, Chris’ daughter and Aimee’s son and daughter; Jared (Chris’ brother) and his fiancĂ© Michelle; Tammy (Aimee’s sister) and her boyfriend Tommy; Doug (Chris and Jared’s cousin) and his wife Wendy and their two children.

Tonight is a new episode of The Graham Norton Show on BBC America at the new time of 10:15/9:15c. Guests include Kenneth Branagh, Zach Braff, & Frank Skinner.

Following that is a new episode of Would You Rather? with Graham Norton on BBC America at 11/10c. Guests include Baron Vaughn, Jessi Klein, Dave Hill, & Christian Finnegan.
