Tonight is the series premiere of Holiday Gingerbread Showdown on Food Network at 9/8c. The best gingerbread artists in the country must create the most incredible, edible gingerbread masterpieces. Over four episodes, host Marcela Valladolid tests the skills of nine gingerbread artists in holiday-themed challenges. Judges Kerry Vincent, Molly Yeh, and Adam Young determine the winner of each episode that advances to the grand finale where they will square off in the ultimate showdown. But it’s not all gumdrops and candy canes as the clock is ticking on dreams of the $25,000 prize. Only one will be crowned Best Gingerbread Artist and be featured in Food Network Magazine.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of Dirty John on Bravo at 10/9c. Debra Newell (Connie Britton) has a seemingly perfect life: she’s successful, beautiful and lives in one of California’s most desirable coastal cities, Newport Beach. The only thing missing is love. So when she finally meets charming and handsome doctor John Meehan (Eric Bana), she’s quickly swept into a whirlwind romance, much to the dismay of her daughters Terra (Julia Garner) and Veronica (Juno Temple). Their fast-tracked relationship creates tension between Debra and the girls, leaving them no choice but to investigate the stranger who has swept their mother off her feet. And with a fraught family history, the backstory of Debra and her mother Arlane (Jean Smart) provides insight into why she may have been so vulnerable to John in the first place. As Debra gets drawn deeper into his lies and sinister game of psychological manipulation, it results in horrific consequences for an entire family.

Tonight is the series premiere of Cashed Out on Reelz Channel at 9/8c. It’s been said that if you want the truth follow the money. When a wealthy celebrity checks out there’s no shortage of people ready to cash in. Michael Jackson, Paul Newman, Prince, Muhammad Ali, George Michael, BB King, Amy Winehouse, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds, Robin Williams, and Johnny Carson are the focus of episodes and all have estates that both their heirs and business associates battle over. Settling huge estates also means swatting away the shady people lurking in the background of a celebrity’s life who are ready to make claims in an attempt to collect. Every hour-long episode of Cashed Out examines a celebrity’s earnings to show viewers how they earned it, how they spent it, the scandals, setbacks and people that cost them millions and what happens to the money after the celebrity is no longer in control of their fortune.

Tonight is the complete first season premiere of Death by Magic on Netflix at 3:01AM/2:01AMc. British magician Drummond Money-Coutts, or DMC for short, is on a mission to uncover the stories of magicians who died performing the most dangerous stunts ever attempted. He travels the world to track down where the fatal performances took place and to work out exactly what went wrong, sharing his magic with the people he meets along the way. It’s a journey that spans four continents and eight cities around the world. His aim is to pay homage to the craft by creating his own updated versions of the stunts that cost these magicians their lives, from being buried alive under tons of wet concrete, to playing a game of Russian roulette, to escaping from a collision with a speeding steam train. The series will follow DMC as he recreates the stunts where others have failed, in the most extreme magic show ever attempted. To succeed he must avoid the fate that met those who came before him and paid the ultimate price: Death by Magic.
 
Tonight is also the complete first season premiere of Inside Jokes on Amazon at 3:01AM/2:01AMc. The show follows unknown stand-up comics vying to make it into the world-famous Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal. Will their performances launch their careers into superstardom, just like New Faces alumni Pete Holmes and Colin Jost, or will they choke under pressure? For this group of comics, who have sacrificed much in pursuit of a dream, there is no bigger moment.
