Monday

Monday features 1 series premiere & 4 season finales. To read more about each of those, click the link below. Otherwise, check out tonight’s schedule!

Click here for premiere & finale information

Tonight is the series premiere of You Deserve It on ABC at 10:01/9:01c. This new game show is hosted by Chris Harrison (The Bachelor) and co-hosted by Brooke Burns. Contestants aren’t out to win money for themselves, but are playing for someone else – someone they feel deserves it. Starting with a $ 10,000 round and going up to a $250,000 round, contestants purchase a series of clues to help them solve the puzzles and win money for their chosen recipient. But each clue will cost them — and the cost of each clue is randomly selected and won’t be revealed until after it has been purchased. The beneficiary, who is in another location under constant hidden-camera surveillance throughout the show, gets the surprise of a lifetime when family, friends, Brooke Burns and a camera crew burst in with life-changing news.
 
Tonight is also the season finale of 4 shows. First up is a new episode of Top Gear: Best of Top Gear on BBC America at 8/7c, followed by the season finale at 9/8c. It’s also the season finale of Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives on Food Network at 10/9c, Cuff’d on MTV at 10:30/9:30c, and Death Valley, also on MTV, at 11/10c.
 
Be sure you check your local listings, because for me, football is pre-empting shows on ABC, which are moving to The CW for the night. Then the new episodes of Gossip Girl & Hart of Dixie will be airing on Saturday. *shrug*
