Tonight, AMC kicks off the fun new comedy Loaded. The series follows four guys who become millionaires overnight thanks to the massively popular mobile game they created. While the money gives the guys a whole new outlook on life, it also opens up a lot of new problems. Leon (Samuel Anderson, Doctor Who) is the leader of the group and wants to take some time to enjoy their new windfall, Josh (Jim Howick, Broadchurch) is the serious and practical one who’s looking toward the future, Ewan (Jonny Sweet, Babylon) is the socially awkward programmer, and Watto (Nick Helm, Uncle) is the wild one who just wants to have fun. With their company growing, the guys now find themselves dealing with new employee issues and the demands of American investor Casey (Mary McCormack, In Plain Sight). The series also stars Aimee-Ffion Edwards (Skins, Peaky Blinders), Lolly Adefope (Rovers), and Scarlett Alice Johnson (Pramface).

I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere. This series is a lot of fun and totally feels like the UK equivalent to Silicon Valley — you can even map most of these characters to their SV counterparts. This should nicely fill the techie TV show void left by SV’s season finale and will nicely lead up to next month’s final season premiere of Halt and Catch Fire.

On tonight’s premiere, “Lawsuit,” four friends become tech millionaires after selling their hit iPhone game “Cat Factory.”

Meet the four newly rich friends tonight on AMC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Superhuman, Will, and Daytime Divas.

I’m so excited about tonight’s series premiere of Salvation on CBS. I’m a big fan of natural disaster movies, and the cast of this show combined with that type of story line makes me almost giddy with anticipation. A staggering discovery comes to light: an enormous asteroid is just six months away from colliding with Earth. Without alerting the public, MIT grad student Liam Cole (Charlie Rowe, Red Band Society) and tech billionaire Darius Tanz (Santiago Cabrera, Big Little Lies, Merlin, The Musketeers) team up to save humanity from this impending apocalypse. The government has its own approach. Grace Barrows (Jennifer Finnigan, Tyrant, Close to Home, Better with You) is both the Pentagon Press Secretary and a single mom. Deputy Secretary of Defense Harris Edwards (Ian Anthony Dale, Hawaii Five-0) has been tasked with running the DOD’s own top-secret plan to deflect the asteroid. Meanwhile, Darius recruits an aspiring sci-fi writer, Jillian (Jacqueline Byers, Ascension, Roadies), to work on a theoretical approach to saving humanity—a project that might prove to be all too real.

I love Ian Anthony Dale and Jennifer Finnigan. He was always great as Adam on Hawaii Five-0, and he’s…very good-looking. (In fact, the series as a whole has some very good eye candy for everyone!) And I’ve loved Finnigan since Close to Home, so…I’m super excited about it.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” when MIT grad student Liam Cole discovers an asteroid is set to collide with Earth in 186 days, he joins forces with tech billionaire Darius Tanz and the U.S. government to try and stop it…and together they stumble onto the greatest conspiracy never told. Neil deGrasse Tyson guest stars as himself.

Start your 186-day journey with me tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef, Cutthroat Kitchen, The F Word with Gordon Ramsey, Blood Drive, Cooks vs Cons, & I’m Sorry.

I loved the first season and first half of the second season of To Tell the Truth. I never watched reruns of the original, but I love this new version, hosted by Anthony Anderson – and frankly, by his mother, who sits on the sidelines and interjects her own commentary. LOL The celebrities are usually fun to watch as they try to figure out who is lying and who is telling the truth. The best ones are usually the ones who really get into it. They don’t worry about what they look or sound like – they just let loose and have fun, really get into the spirit of the show.

On tonight’s episode, celebrities Justin Long, Arielle Kebbel, Nikki Glaser, and Kal Penn are presented with a variety of participants with interesting traits, from the only person in the world to bike to the South Pole, to the “Doggy Designer to the Stars,” as well as Usher’s choreographer.

See who is lying and who is telling the truth tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef, Big Star Little Star, Brother vs Brother, Cutthroat Kitchen, The F Word, Blood Drive, & Lip Sync Battle.

I was so happy when I heard the news that this season of So You Think You Can Dance was going to be getting back to the original format. That means dancers ages 18-30 will be in one group and dancing with All-Stars their own age. No more splitting into “stage” and “street” dancers and most importantly, no more kids. I don’t mind watching kids dance, but it just didn’t work the way they tried to do it. Thankfully, not only is the original format back, but so is Mary Murphy at the judges’ table! Joining her and Nigel Lythgoe this season is musician and actress Vanessa Hudgins. I have my fingers crossed that she’ll be better than Paula and Jason were in the previous seasons.

On tonight’s episode, “Los Angeles Auditions #1,” hopefuls perform for the judges, vying for a place in the callback rounds.

See if there are any standout auditions tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, Kids BBQ Championship, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Superhuman, & Incredible Edible America with the Dunhams.

My pick tonight is another new competition series, but it’s even more different than last night’s dance one. Tonight is the start of Big Star Little Star on USA Network. The fabulous Cat Deeley is host, and she’s just as charming and fun as she is as host on So You Think You Can Dance. On this celebrity family game show, celebrities are paired with their kids as they have fun testing their knowledge of one another. All of the teams win money for their charities at the end, not just the winners of each episode, which makes it even better. Through a handful of different rounds, we get to learn more about the celebrities and their personal lives from their kids…who won’t fail to be completely honest about what their parents are REALLY like at home, away from the cameras and Hollywood. I’ve seen a few of the episodes already and really enjoy it. It’s certainly the funniest when the celebrity parent is just as honest about themselves as their kids are!

On tonight’s episode, Cat is joined by Todd Chrisley and son Grayson, Marissa Jaret Winokur and son Zev, and Chad Johnson and daughter Cha’iel.

Catch all the fun tonight on USA Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Little Big Shots, MasterChef, Bakers vs Fakers, Brother vs Brother, The F Word, & Cooks vs Cons.
