Tonight is the series premiere of Totally T-Boz on TLC at 8/7c. The show shares the life and journey of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, from the iconic girl group TLC, as she moves to Los Angeles with family and friends in tow, in order to reinvent her career in the music industry and beyond. She’s also struggling to figure the balance between her solo endeavors and the group, while T-Boz and singing partner Chilli realize they may not be able to agree on what the future holds.

Tonight is also the series premiere of The Sisterhood on TLC at 9/8c. The show is a candid look into the larger-than-life preacher wives (aka First Ladies) who work to ensure that their families and churches run as smooth as Southern-churned butter. As wives of preachers, First Ladies are held to undeniably high standards. Expectations can be overwhelming as these powerful and driven women are on a mission to overcome obstacles, break molds, expand social circles and raise families… all under the intense scrutiny and pressure of their respective communities. The show provides an honest, behind-the-scenes look into the struggles, triumphs and unique experiences that shape these bold women as they ditch their Sunday hats and morph into the dynamic and influential figures they have become and aim to be.

Tonight is also the series premiere of Hardcore Pawn: Chicago on TruTV at 9:30/8:30c. The show takes viewers behind the scenes at “the baddest pawn shop in Chicago.” One of the city’s largest and oldest establishments in the pawn and gold-buying business, Royal Pawn Shop is owned by Randy and Wayne Cohen, two brothers who don’t always see eye to eye, except when it comes to finding the best deals for the business. These over-the-top siblings will wheel and deal with just about anyone, from a sweet kindergarten teacher to an intimidating mob boss.

The fourth premiere tonight is the series premiere of Storage Wars: New York on A&E at 10/9c, followed by a 2nd new episode at 10:30/9:30c. The show embraces the unique flavors and rhythms of the Big Apple (and the surrounding tri-state area) to follow a brand new group of urban explorers in a modern-day treasure hunt. Here, the city itself is a major character with its wildly different neighborhoods, suburbs, ethnicities, and fashions that influence and impact each auction, purchase, and rivalry that our buyers face.

Finally, tonight is the series premiere of Double Divas on Lifetime at 10:30/9:30c. The show will offer an eye-opening peek into the world of intimate apparel at Atlanta’s renowned boutique LiviRae Lingerie, where the motto is: “No bust too big or small. We fit them all!”

Tonight is the series premiere of Buckwild on MTV at 10/9c, followed by a 2nd new episode at 10:30/9:30c. The show is an authentic comedic series following an outrageous group of childhood friends from the rural foothills of West Virginia who love to dodge grown-up responsibilities and always live life with the carefree motto, “whatever happens, happens.” Money might be tight in their neck of the woods, but whether they’re throwing a dump truck pool party or building their own human slingshot, nothing stops them from making their own entertainment. Love and relationships come and go, but their bond with family and friends is always at the core for this eccentric group where anything goes!
