Saturday is the series premiere of Notorious on Reelz at 9/8c. The cliché rags to riches stories of many celebrities are often about how they succeeded through hard work and perseverance but what about the twisted individuals who gained fame for doing things far outside of the bounds of legality and morality? These are stories of extortion, stalking, lying, defrauding and even murder. Whether it’s Anthony Wiener’s descent from rising political star to sex offender, one of the world’s richest heiresses Patty Hearst robbing a bank at gunpoint, or Aaron Hernandez going from NFL star and multi-millionaire to being convicted of murder and ultimately taking his own life while behind bars, Notorious explores the darker side of fame. Through interviews with crime experts, recreations, archival footage and police reports viewers will learn the stories and motivations behind these individuals who surpassed infamy to become truly notorious.
Tonight is also the series premiere of While You Were Out on TLC at 9/8c. Hosted by Ananda Lewis, the show features an all-star cast comprised of designers from both TLC and HGTV. With a budget of $10,000 per room, each set of designers and carpenters will design one room in neighboring houses after the home owner sends their significant other on a weekend getaway. The ultimate surprise reveal culminates each episode upon their return. One home will include TLC designers and the other, HGTV designers. The cast includes: from TLC, Carter Oosterhouse, Doug Wilson, Frank Bielec, Hildi Santo Tomas, Kahi Lee, Sabrina Soto, Ty Pennington, and Vern Yip. From HGTV, Bristol and Aubrey Marunde, David Visentin, Hilary Farr, Karen E Laine, Mina Starsiak, Nicole Curtis, and Vanilla Ice and carpenters Eric Griffin and Jordan Thompson.

Station 19 returned last week, and it was intense to say the least. Andy and the captain were stranded in the ambulance with the victim who was barely hanging on – but to make matters worse, the captain was badly injured and couldn’t feel his legs. Andy managed to climb the giant incline to light a flare and save the captain, but unfortunately the young lady who was in the ambulance originally due to injuries sustained during a car accident didn’t fare so well and she died. Andy was later awarded a Medal of Valor for her work that day, but she was upset because she felt unworthy of it. She accepted it but didn’t have any grand words to share with the audience because of her guilt that the girl died. The only one who saw the true reason behind it was Ryan, and he went after her to comfort her. Later they found comfort together yet again at the after party when Andy couldn’t help but have sex with him, but this is a dangerous story line for them because they keep hurting each other and then going back at it. I see a potential issue in their future in the form of the captain, because after the experience during the wind storm, Andy and Sullivan have a new connection. I don’t know who I want with Andy, but whoever it is I know it is going to be incredibly hot.
On tonight’s episode, “I Fought the Law,” when Andy, Maya, and Dean respond to a call, they find an injured woman with amnesia, but soon into the treatment process, they realize there is much more to her story. Meanwhile, Captain Sullivan takes Ben and Jack on a house call that quickly becomes a close call for the patient they’re treating, while Ryan may not have seen the last of his father.
To see how Ryan deals with his father, tune in to ABC at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching For the People, Grey’s Anatomy, and Top Chef.
