Tonight is the series premiere of Coupled on FOX at 9/8c. Hosted by entertainment personality Terrence “J” Jenkins, the show follows 12 single, smart and young professional women looking for love, who will meet face-to-face with eligible single men against the beautiful backdrop of the Caribbean islands. The women have first choice as they instantly decide if they feel a spark of chemistry and want to spend more time with each guy, or if they don’t feel a connection and want to wait for the next one. The real soap opera unfolds as new couples are formed and have to discover whether or not they have the compatibility to make their relationships last. The show will also feature the one thing that all modern romances have in common: texting. The women and men are armed with cell phones throughout the series, giving the audience a front row seat to the real drama, as their text conversations pop up on screen.

Tonight is the series premiere of Blue Collar Backers on Discovery Channel at 10/9c. For many people, owning and operating their own business is the ultimate American dream. On average, more than 540,000 new businesses a month will launch in the United States, but what separates a good idea from one that just reads well on paper? Enter the experts who are offering not only a cash investment, but sweat equity to burgeoning businesses. With traditional banks and lenders rejecting over 80% of small business loans, there’s been a resurgence of a new breed of investors. They provide cash and, more importantly, a hands-on approach to help men and women’s dreams become reality. Each week, a panel of top-notch professionals from various fields and trades will share their personal experience, get their hands dirty, and provide the necessary funds to help a few budding entrepreneurs make their big dreams a reality. But how does a business stick out in this ever-competitive market place? And what’s the best decision for the business to move forward?

Tonight is the complete first season premiere of Lady Dynamite on Netflix at 3:01AM/2:01AMc. This new original comedy series stars Maria Bamford and is based on what she has accepted to be “her life.” The occasionally surreal episodes, refracted across multiple periods inspired by the actor/comedian’s life, tell the story of a woman who loses — and then finds — her s**t.
