Tonight is the series premiere of Invention Hunters on Food Network at 11/10c. Steve Greenberg and Patrick Raymond are two “invention scouts”, scouring America in search of the next great kitchen invention. In each episode, they come across three home inventors who each believe they have a million-dollar kitchen gadget. Steve and Patrick put the inventions to the test ensuring they work as promised and determine whether there is a market for the idea. They will then choose one invention to bring to buyers in the retail manufacturing world to convince them to buy it and make the inventor’s dreams a reality.

Tonight is the series premiere of Kurt Sutter’s Outlaw Empires on Discovery Channel at 10/9c. Behind the America you know lies another world, where people live outside the law. Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter enters the realm of the gangs and families who have dominated our streets and helped shape our nation’s history. Steered by Sutter’s compelling insight, each episode tells the complete story of an iconic American outlaw dynasty — directly from the mouths of people who were on the inside. Through their no-holds-barred accounts, the series takes an unvarnished look at moment-by-moment experiences that were not only pivotal for the organizations themselves, but life-changing for the individuals telling the stories.
