More on "American Grit"
Catch It on Fox April 14
From the Futon Critic

New military-inspired competition series AMERICAN GRIT will debut Thursday, April 14 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following the spring return of BONES (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Starring WWE(R) Superstar John Cena(TM), AMERICAN GRIT follows 16 of the country's toughest men and women as they are split into four teams and face a variety of military-grade and survival-themed challenges set in the wilderness of Pack Forest in Eatonville, WA. Cena and an elite group of mentors from the nation's most exclusive military units - including Navy Seal Commander Rorke Denver, Army Sergeant Noah Galloway, Marine Gunnery Sergeant Tawanda "Tee" Hanible and Army Ranger Nick "The Reaper" Irving - will push these fierce competitors beyond their limits. With up to a million dollars of prize money at stake, this is the ultimate test of strength, grit, the human spirit and, most importantly, teamwork.

BONES kicks off the night, returning for its spring premiere, at 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT. Picking up after the explosive fall finale, the all-new episode, "The Death in the Defense," finds Hodgins (TJ Thyne) eight weeks into his rehabilitation and forced to navigate life in a wheelchair. Meanwhile, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) investigate the death of a public defender who had multiple defendants from previous cases with motives to kill her.

AMERICAN GRIT is produced by Leftfield Pictures and executive-produced by Brent Montgomery, David George, Adam Sher, Will Nothacker and Jon Kroll. John Cena also serves as executive producer.

Food Network Pits Pros vs. Joes
Catch "Cooks vs. Cons" March 17
From the Futon Critic

The recipe for Food Network's newest series calls for elite cooking skills, agility and adaptability, all simmered with a dash of mystery as a combination of home cooks and trained professionals, whose true identities are concealed, battle it out on new culinary competition Cooks vs. Cons, premiering on Thursday, March 17th at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network. Geoffrey Zakarian hosts the action as the competitors are tested in two rounds of challenges to create enticing entrees that must impress a rotating panel of judges, including Kardea Brown, Josh Elkin, Graham Elliot and Daphne Oz. With a level playing field, the judges will determine the winner based on taste and presentation, and only after the decision has been made will the contestants reveal their true identities.

"Cooks vs. Cons combines elements of surprise, suspense and mystery. Viewers can play along with the judges to figure out who are the professional chefs and who are the home cooks. It's not as easy as one might think," said Didi O'Hearn, Senior Vice President Programming, Food Network & Cooking Channel. "As a proven food authority and masterful competitor himself, Geoffrey Zakarian is the perfect master of ceremonies for this deliciously deceptive competition."

The pressure is on in each of the six hour-long episodes, as the contestants are on the clock and under the watchful eye of the judging panel, observing their progress in the kitchen. In order to win, they must tackle two rounds of challenges where a surprise ingredient, such as fruity cereal, orange soda or sour dill pickles, must be incorporated into preparing mouthwatering classic meals like burgers, tacos, meatballs, and mac 'n cheese. The contestant whose dish does not make the grade will be eliminated after the first round. Then, the three remaining cooks will go head-to-head in another round with a new secret ingredient. If a professional's dish is best they will take home a prize of $10,000, but if an amateur can beat the odds and the competition, they are rewarded with an even bigger prize of $15,000!

Fans can catch highlights from the series at FoodNetwork.com/CooksVsCons, and they can join the conversation on Twitter using #CooksVsCons.

Geoffrey Zakarian is an Iron Chef and a master of modern American cuisine. He has presided over some of the country's top kitchens in the past 25 years. Currently, Geoffrey is chef and partner at The Lambs Club and The National in New York City and Greenwich, Connecticut as well as the culinary lifestyle consultant at The Water Club at Borgata in Atlantic City.

Entertain The Brutes
Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect a Third Season
Report: "Monopoly Millionaires' Club" to End April 30
From B&C

It looks like "Monopoly Millionaires' Club" may have just gone bankrupt. Literally.

Broadcasting & Cable is reporting that the Scientific Games weekly game show will end its run after this season. The shows last weekend on the air will be April 30 - May 1.

TV station groups carrying the show received a letter on Tuesday informing them of the news. As early as NATPE in Miami last month, the shows representatives, which include former NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution president Barry Wallach, were shopping the idea of turning the show into a daily strip. However, plans ultimately fell through.

Going back to the idea of bankruptcy, the heart of the problem seems to stem from the show's companion piece, the multi-state lottery game - which started as a draw before becoming a scratch-off - being over-shadowed by bigger games like Powerball and Mega Millions. Sales paled comparatively, and as a result, several states have declined to continue offering the lottery, making continuing the game, and thus the TV show, economically unsustainable.

Syndies: Week 20
Results for the Week Ending January 31
From B&C

Warner Bros. Crime Watch Daily had the honor of being the only syndicated strip in first-run to hit a new season high in the week ending January 31, the last full week before the start of the February sweeps.
The freshman strip climbed 10% to a season- and series-high 1.1 live plus same day household rating, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Most syndicated shows were saving big episodes for the upcoming ratings period. In addition, levels of people using television were down during the week due to power outages in the aftermath of the record-setting blizzard that fell upon the East Coast.

Debmar-Mercurys Celebrity Name Game, starring Craig Ferguson, was the only game show not to decline for the week, holding steady at its season-high 1.5, and rising 7% from last year at this time.

Leading the games, CTDs Wheel of Fortune slid 5% to a 7.4. Debmar-Mercurys Family Feud, another Harvey vehicle, fell 3% to a 7.3, after hitting a series high in the previous week. CTDs Jeopardy! lost 3% to a 7.0. Disney-ABCs Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, renewed for next season, sank 7% to a 1.4 and declined 22% from last year at this time.

Who Knows Jimmy Kimmel? Find Out in "Big Fan"
ABC Spins Off JKL Seg, Andy Richter to Host
From Entertainment Weekly

Another late-night bit is getting expanded to a full-on TV show.

ABC announced Monday that Jimmy Kimmels Who Knows? segment will be turned into a half-hour game show called Big Fan, produced by Kimmel himself and hosted by Andy Richter.

Celebrities go up against their biggest fans in Who Knows? to see who knows more about the featured celebrity. Katy Perry memorably played the game in April 2014 when a fan proved to know more about Perry than Perry did herself.

The show is a lot of fun, Kimmel said in a statement. Andy Richter is a great host, and I cant think of a better way to terrify celebrities.

Big Fan follows in the footsteps of Spikes Lip Sync Battle, a half-hour show based on Jimmy Fallons segment of the same name. A premiere date for the new series has not yet been announced.

Spike Tries "Caraoke"
Craig Robinson to Host Game Show Special
From Splitsider

Spike is looking to expand its huge success from Lip Sync Battle with a series that sounds a lot like James Cordens popular Late Late Show segment Carpool Karaoke. The network has ordered a half-hour game show called Caraoke Showdown, which will be executive produced by Howie Mandel and hosted by Craig Robinson:

Set to debut as a half-hour special later this year, Caraoke Showdown will feature The Office alum Robinson picking up unsuspecting contestants who realize they are on a karaoke-inspired game show. During various rounds of game play, contestants must belt out their favorite tunes, finish the lyrics or act out songs for cash. Celebrity guest appearances will add surprise as the contestants never know what to expect next.

The project is being planned as a one-off special, but its expected to be picked up to series should the episode do well and considering how Lip Sync Battle has brought the network its highest ratings ever, chances are good Robinson will stick around for more.
