Today is also the series premiere of Sleeping with Friends on YouTube at 12PM/11AMc. The series arrives for Mental Health Awareness Month, which coincides with one of the most challenging periods our world has ever faced with the current pandemic. There is no health without mental health, and it’s important to take notice and care of our emotional, psychological and social well-being. One major factor that contributes to mental health? SLEEP. In this three part special, EduTubers will go head to head to see who can improve their own sleep using the latest techniques and products. Featuring Mitch and Greg from ASAPScience, Donna Yatz of PsychIRL, Melissa Maribel, judges and mental health professional Kati Morton, Dr. Ali Mattu, Trace Dominguez, and hosted by Vanessa Hill. Sleep is the ultimate performance enhancer and best preventative medicine. Yet, a 2018 CDC study revealed that every night, 35% of Americans don’t get enough. We’re in a cultural shift where more people are trying to reclaim sleep — and using YouTube for on-demand sleep aids and information. BrainCraft presents the world’s first sleep competition series with Sleeping with Friends!

Tonight is the series premiere of Labor of Love on FOX at 9/8c. The groundbreaking series, hosted by award-winning actress Kristin Davis (Sex and the City), levels up dating to mating by taking viewers along on one woman’s unconventional journey toward potential love and motherhood. Labor of Love focuses on Kristy Katzmann, a 41-year old, smart, successful and beautiful career woman who seems to have it all — that is, except the one thing she wants the most. Like so many women in America today, she is ready to have a child and start a family, but has yet to meet the potential father of her children. Kristy will be matched with 15 sexy, sophisticated and like-minded men, who are ready to let their paternal sides shine.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of Impractical Jokers: Dinner Party on TruTV at 10/9c.

Fans will see the guys like never before, by drawing back the curtain for an up close and personal glimpse at their lives while they practice social distancing.

Overnight last night was the complete first season premiere of The Big Fib on Disney+. Ever thought you could spot a fib better than a kid? Find out on The Big Fib. A new Disney+ game show, hosted by Yvette Nicole Brown and featuring Rhys Darby as her robot sidekick, C.L.I.V.E. In each episode of this comedy game show, a kid starts by playing a warm up round where a silly liar and an authentic expert share fabulous fibs and fun facts. Starring up and coming comedic talent, this round is played for laughs as well as always having a nugget of real information about the topic be it ice cream, tree climbing or toy design. Next our kid contestant plays the main round where they question an expert who’s paired with a really good liar on the same topic. It’s up to our kid to find the fibber. There are visual clues, fascinating props, a hot seat round of rapid fire questions and various topics, including jellyfish, venom and killer plants. The show culminates with the expert and liar standing under the Fib Foam machine to await their fate. If our kid chooses correctly, the liar gets foamed. The Big Fib is full of outrageous truths that sound like lies and audacious lies that sound like the truth.
 
Overnight last night was also the complete first season premiere of History 101 on Netflix. Infographics and archival footage deliver bite-size history lessons on scientific breakthroughs, social movements and world-changing discoveries.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of All on the Line on Discovery Channel at 9/8c. It’s late in the Atlantic Bluefin Tuna season. In the iconic fishing town of Gloucester, Massachusetts, many boats are done for the season. But there are two crews still fighting to land monster tuna and keep their family businesses going through the winter. As the weather worsens, the fish get bigger and the stakes get higher. These monster tuna can weigh more than 1,000 pounds and are reeled in the old-fashioned way — by hand — making it the ultimate battle of man versus beast. It’s all hands on deck as these fishermen risk everything to bring home a monster payday.

  1. Naruto: Shippuuden has been over for many, many years. In what way could there be “new” episodes of it?

We'd love to know what you think!
