Tonight is the series premiere of Bamazon on History Channel at 10/9c. After the boys from ‘Bama test their mettle against the Guyanese jungle, the Amazon will never be the same. It will become the Bamazon! The show follows eight determined Alabama construction workers as they trek into the dark heart of South America, hoping to strike it rich as upstart gold miners. But it won’t be easy. Men have come to this unforgiving part of the world for centuries searching for El Dorado and most have gone home empty-handed, if they’ve survived the experience at all! Some of the biggest undiscovered gold deposits in the world — valued at well over $100 billion — are believed to be in Guyana, South America. It’s ready for the taking. But it’s also hard to get to. This is untamed territory, with no roads, no infrastructure, and it’s populated by deadly jaguars, vicious piranhas, malarial mosquitoes and 20-foot-long alligators. Setting up a mining operation here is pure folly. But the men of Bamazon have nothing left to lose and everything to gain.

Tonight is the series premiere of Take It All on NBC 9:01/8:01c. In the show, a contestant selects and opens a prize worth thousands of dollars; dream prizes such as luxury cars, exotic trips, jewelry and VIP experiences. Then, the next player is faced with a dilemma: do they steal a prize that has already been revealed, or do they take a chance with another unopened prize, hoping what’s inside is worth more? But that’s just the beginning. When there are only two contestants left, the players have a life-changing choice to make: keep the prizes they have — or try and take all the prizes. If both players choose to “keep mine,” they will each keep the prizes they have won in the prior rounds. If one player chooses “keep mine” and the other chooses to “take it all,” the player that chose “take it all” will go home with all the prizes — theirs and their opponents. But if both choose “take it all,” they both go home with nothing. The stakes are insanely high as each contestant grapples with the choice of a lifetime.
