Tonight is the series premiere of Gym Rescue on Spike TV at 10/9c. More and more Americans every year are joining gyms to stay in shape and live healthier and more productive lives. However, running a successful gym is fraught with economic peril as many end up closing due to grievous mismanagement. MMA legends Randy Couture and Frank Shamrock use their years of expertise in the business of mixed martial arts to help turn struggling gyms into thriving enterprises. Couture currently owns a successful chain of gyms, Xtreme Couture MMA while Shamrock runs the acclaimed Shamrock MMA. Together this dynamic duo has the know-how and track record to help take a failing gym on the ropes and turn it into a champion.

Tonight is the series premiere of 4th and Loud on AMC at 9/8c. This docu-series focuses on the inaugural season of the LA KISS arena football league team and will follow team owners Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS fame, along with additional owners, long-time KISS manager, Doc McGhee, managing partner/owner, Brett Bouchy, and president/owner, Schuyler Hoversten, as they and the dedicated players and coaches work to turn LA’s first professional football team in years into a winning franchise.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of Sisterhood of Hip Hop on Oxygen at 9/8c. This empowering series showcases female artists chasing their dreams in a music genre traditionally dominated by men. Discovered and mentored by the biggest names in hip hop, Bia, Brianna Perry, Diamond, Nyemiah Supreme and Siya each bring a unique voice and style to the table. The eight episode series will also include appearances by hip hop icons, mentors, and friends such as Eve, Lil Jon, Travie McCoy, Rick Ross, Tank, and Irv Gotti among others.
 
Tonight is the series premiere of Brandi & Jarrod: Married to the Job on A&E at 10/9c. Viewers get a glimpse of their favorite Storage Wars couple outside of the auction game. When the bidding stops, Brandi and Jarrod come home to Orange County, CA, where their busy lives revolve around raising two children and managing their second-hand store. After fifteen years together, Brandi and Jarrod finally decide to tie the knot, and they approach wedding planning in a way that only they could: with a little love, a lot of bickering, and constant detours along the way.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of The Singles Project on Bravo at 10/9c. The new, innovative docu-series follows a group of young, successful New York singles as they search for love and strive to conquer the city that never sleeps. Viewers will help these undeniable catches overcome their hang-ups, which may include getting over an ex, managing their high expectations or broadening their dating horizons so they can eventually find “the one.” Marking the first real-time dating docu-series in the U.S., each episode will be shot and aired within the same week.

Tonight is the series premiere of Red Hot Design on FYI at 10/9c. The show follows Shasta Smith, a cutting edge interior designer, and her team of talented “grease monkeys” who salvage, build and repurpose vintage scrap metal into phenomenal architectural elements matched with great color and fabrics. Shasta, the owner of Sacramento-based design shop, Vintage Monkey wields beauty, talent and razor-sharp wit to keep everything on track as the team juggles projects and deadlines. For the past 15 years, Shasta has served as ringleader of a colorful crew at Vintage Monkey. With her inherited eye for good finds, Shasta’s designs go from scrapyard to centerpiece. From sketch to showroom, Shasta enlists the help of her team, sculptor Thomas Ramey; expert metal fabricator, Alex English; specialized welder, Tony Bures; and brainiac, Jason Chernowetz. Traveling throughout scrapyards for inspiration and materials, the Vintage Monkey team goes above and beyond creating works of art straight out of the vintage industrial era.
