Tonight is the series premiere of The Amandas on Style Network at 8/7c. The extreme perfectionist and organizational specialist, Amanda LeBlanc, leads a team of young and fashionable organizers to create meticulously functional living spaces with a focus on style and aesthetics. Having lost it all in Hurricane Katrina, LeBlanc knows firsthand what it means to live and thrive with less and helps her clients to let go of the past in order to create elegant, efficient and stress-free environments. A wife, mom, and entrepreneur, Amanda’s desire for perfection has turned her obsession with organization into a lucrative business and growing empire. With her mini army of “Amandas” comprised of spirited Southern women – who don’t always share Amanda’s drive or common sense – and her right-hand man, Dustin Canez, Amanda works around the clock to create structure and exquisite design. Arguments are inevitable within this outspoken group, but Amanda manages to keep the peace and push people to achieve their best with her down-to-earth sense of humor and charm. Each episode, Amanda will meet with a new client to lend her expertise, whether it’s for a blue-blood socialite looking for someone to turn her walk-in closet into a peaceful sanctuary or a single mom whose hoarding has turned her house – and life – into ruins. From garage, to nursery, to attic and even food truck, no space is off-limits for “The Amandas.”

Tonight is the series premiere of Sorority Girls on TLC at 9/8c. For nearly two centuries, college students across America have collectively connected through fraternities and sororities, and TLC has picked up a series following the journey of five Sorority ‘Sisters’ who attempt to establish Britain’s first ever sorority: Sigma Gamma. Sororities are an institution unique to the U.S. This show follows along as these five American society girls pack up their suitcases and head to Leeds to bring their traditions of exclusivity and glamour to the UK. Over eight weeks, the girls recruit eager candidates see if they have what it takes to ‘Go Greek’ and battle it out to earn one of five coveted spots. Gaining membership into this ultra-private club won’t be easy though; these ladies of Leeds will be monitored 24/7 and will experience all aspects of pledging including rush week, door chants, secret handshakes and preference night rituals. In the end, the initiated Sigma Gamma ‘sisters’ will be responsible to continue the duties of the sorority after the Americans have packed up and gone home. Sorority Girls explores if English tradition can mix with this American custom and all that comes with rushing to get in.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of Undercover Princes on TLC at 10/9c. The show follows royalty on the pursuit of love as three single princes from around the world go undercover as locals in the UK in hopes of finding their true love to take back to their kingdom. They hit the bars and clubs, internet dating sites, and even try their hand at speed dating in search for someone who can love them for more than just their wealth and title. During their quest for love, the princes will live together in a Brighton townhouse, an area steep in royal heritage with a higher than average number of singles. The “undercovers” will ditch their fleets of servants and be forced to cook, clean, and shop for themselves. To maximize their chances to find dates, royalty will also be working everyday jobs including cleaning hotels, waiting tables and bartending to explore the possibility of sparking up a romance with their co-workers.
 
Finally, tonight is the series premiere of Key & Peele on Comedy Central at 10:30/9:30c. Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele make their mark on this new comedy. Key and Peele are best known for their impressive ability to do improv, conjure up original characters, and celebrity impressions. In this new series, these fresh, relevant comedic actor-writers, used to being on the outside looking in, will examine life in a provocative and irreverent way, through a combination of filmed sketches and live stage segments. Whether it’s satirizing the President, spoofing Nazis, or ordering up some soul food, Key & Peele will showcase their chemistry, camaraderie, and unique point of view, born from their shared background and experiences growing up biracial in a not quite post-racial world.

Tonight is the 1-hour series premiere of I Just Want My Pants Back on MTV at 11/10c. From acclaimed director and executive producer Doug Liman (Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Swingers, Go, Bourne Identity) and based on David J. Rosen’s novel of the same name, this show follows the triumphs and misadventures of a group of friends as they navigate post-college life in Brooklyn. Struggling with sex, love, career and friendship as a young twenty-something living in Brooklyn, the series follows Jason Strider, played by Peter Vack. Jason puts hanging with his friends, going to bars and hooking up above his entry level job where he’s the lowest rung at a casting agency, and dreams of being in music journalism-but has no idea how to get there. It’s not until a one night stand steals his heart and his pants, that he begins a quest to get his beloved jeans back, and hopefully the girl, while also growing up along the way. It also stars Chris Parnell, Elisabeth Hower, Jordan Carlos, Kim Shaw, and Sunkrish Bala.
