Tonight is the 2-hour series premiere of Defiance on Syfy at 9/8c. The show is the first-ever convergence of television and online gaming, featuring an interconnected world between the two mediums as they evolve together into one overall story. The series’ luminous cast includes Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran, Jaime Murray, Graham Greene, and Mia Kirshner. Set in the near future, Defiance introduces an exotically transformed planet Earth, its landscapes permanently altered following the sudden – and tumultuous – arrival of seven unique alien races. In this somewhat unknown and unpredictable landscape, the richly diverse, newly-formed civilization of humans and aliens must learn to co-exist peacefully. Each week, viewers will follow an immersive character drama set in the boom-town of Defiance, which sits atop the ruins of St. Louis, MO, while in the game, players will experience the new frontier of the San Francisco Bay area.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of Scam City on Science Channel at 10/9c. Science Channel goes undercover in the all-new series that dissects the tactics of thieves, con men and scam artists in some of the busiest and most-densely-populated cities across the globe. The show follows host Conor Woodman as he ventures into dark streets to unveil the inner workings of some of the world’s most intricate crime rings. Woodman sets up shady taxi drivers, illicit drug lords, and expert pick-pockets, playing the role of the innocent tourist, only to expose the routines of these seasoned criminals. Woodman’s undercover exposes provide a fascinating look into illegal practices that have victimized travelers for hundreds of years.

Tonight is the series premiere of Off Pitch on VH1 at 10/9c. The show follows a young adult show choir in Wisconsin called the Grand River Singers (GRS) where cliques, glittered jackets, jealousy, show tunes and love all blend together in this quirky musical community. What some may say they lack in talent and execution, no one can deny they make up for in pure determination and heart. They have just one goal: to take the Grand River Singers out of La Crosse, Wisconsin and onto a much larger stage like… the Great Wisconsin Cheese Festival or the Sheboygan Bratwurst Festival.
