wahlburgers2016smallOne of my favorite family reality shows, Wahlburgers, is back tonight on a 1-hour season premiere. Last season, it was more of the same for this fun family: Mark tortured Paul, Paul created a new burger for some football friends, Mark and Donnie got to spend time together in NYC when their schedules overlapped, and new Wahlburger restaurants opened in Toronto and Coney Island. Not to mention we got lots of Alma and brother Bob. I can’t wait to find out what’s in store for the Walberg family this go round.

On tonight’s episode, “Directing Drama,” when Johnny Drama looks to take his music career to the next level, Mark suggests Drama make a music video that Mark himself will direct. The music video will be Drama’s Wahlburgers Rap Jingle and shot down in New Orleans where Mark is filming his latest movie. Mark enlists music mogul Sean “P Diddy” Combs and movie director Peter Berg to help mentor Drama. But filming hits a rough patch when Drama is not comfortable with the alter ego “Drama Boy” that Mark creates for him.

Check out the crazy fun tonight on A&E at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Rosewood, Hell’s Kitchen, Property Brothers, & CSI: Cyber.

internetruinedmylifesmallTonight, Syfy kicks off the new six-part unscripted series The Internet Ruined My Life. Social media can make the world feel much smaller and closer, but it is also a powerful and dangerous thing. A simple misunderstood or out-of-context tweet or post can kick off a wave of Internet rage, harassment, or even legal issues that could destroy your life. This series explores the real-life travails of people who have had their lives affected by these kinds of technological mishaps. These incidents include people whose lives have been threatened or ruined due to angry strangers and hashtag activists who seem to be looking for any reason to stir up an army of troublemakers, misunderstood slang that leads to legal issues, pranks that backfire, jilted exes who post private photos, and so on. The series explores the extreme measures the victims must resort to in order to clear their names, feel safe again, and regain their lives. The stories are recounted by the people who went through the experience, their friends and family members. And additional commentary is provided by experts in fields such as cyber bullying and law enforcement.

I checked out tonight’s premiere and really enjoyed it. I found the stories interesting, and I liked how they are presented/reenacted in this action-packed way that really draws you in. It’s not just a talking face of a person telling you what happened to them. Each episode is only a half hour, so it really flies by, and after watching the two stories presented in tonight’s episode, I was ready for more. I could have easily watched a full hour of this!

On tonight’s premiere, “#CancelColbert,” the show opens with a tweet to cancel The Colbert Report that sent one young woman into hiding. Also: British slang turns a holiday-bound traveler into a suspected terrorist.

Check out the premiere of this new show tonight on Syfy at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, American Crime, Young & Hungry, Baby Daddy, Man Seeking Woman, and Younger.

hellskitchen2015smallHell’s Kitchen has been having a very tumultuous season so far with both the red and blue teams having extreme issues, but it’s definitely still entertaining. I don’t remember a season where Ramsay has switched so many cooks from one team to the other so early on, but hopefully after tweaking the teams yet again last week, we will finally start to see someone rise to the top.

Speaking of last week’s episode, it had Manda hurting her back while doing a punishment after the blue team lost a challenge. She went on to work during service, but the men had very little sympathy for her pain at all. I understand it’s a competition, but I give her credit for at least showing up and trying, unlike other members of the blue team. What is Chad’s malfunction? In the beginning, he seemed like he had potential, but the last few services he’s been a mess. The blue team is starting to crumble, and while both kitchens actually finished service for once, the blue team had to go to elimination. Jared and Manda were put up and Manda fought like a tiger. Ramsay actually decided to call Chad out instead, but just as he took his jacket off, Ramsay decided to send him to the red kitchen to find his confidence. Then Ramsay answered Ariel’s prayers and took Dannie off the red team and sent her to the blue team because he hopes she can finally become the leader she so desperately wants to be. It was a crazy episode, with another twisted ending, but I have to say at the moment, the only one I see being capable of winning is Ariel, because she is the most consistent so far.

On tonight’s episode, “10 Chefs Again,” after two contestants swap teams, the teams go head to head in a bison dish challenge, during which their archery skills ultimately determine which country’s cuisine their dish will represent. The winning team will get a fun reward, while the losing team is left behind to prepare for dinner service.

To see which new team format works the best, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Rosewood, The Voice, American Crime, and CSI: Cyber.
