Undercover Billionaire: Comeback City
Discovery Channel (DStv 121)
Glenn Stearns from the first season of Undercover Billionaire, returns to Erie, Pennsylvania, where he built his business, Underdog BBQ, in just 90 days.
Now he has a new mission: rescuing small businesses on the brink of going bust.
When the economy hit the skids earlier the year, Glenn was contacted by other Erie businessmen and women who were struggling to keep their own dream alive.
Each episode will follow Glenn as he works to turn around one of these small businesses.
After assessing their operation and identifying areas to change, he'll work with them to transform it in just 27 days.
Why 27 days? The average small business in America has just 27 days in cash reserves. Glenn believes that if a business can't turn it around in that amount of time, they'll never be able to.
Each episode will give all business owners key lessons on how to stay afloat and grow.
Glenn will identify the many pitfalls new businesses face and lay out a plan to reach their money-making goals.
From diners and boxing gyms to coffee shops and rust belt manufacturing, Glenn will share all that he's learned and might have a few surprise tricks up his sleeves as well.
In the series premiere, "Big Pivot, Big Profit": Glenn reveals what it takes to save a struggling business when he's called on to rescue Tipsy Bean, an Erie coffee shop with huge potential but suffering from a fatal flaw.
1Magic (DStv 103)
A reimagining of the classic series, starring Queen Latifah as Robyn McCall - an enigmatic woman with a mysterious background who uses her extensive skills to help those with nowhere else to turn.
As McCall acclimates to civilian life, she is compelled to use her considerable resources to help Jewel, a teenager accused of murder and on the run from the criminals who framed her for the crime.
Robyn McCall presents to most as an average single mom who is quietly raising her teenage daughter.
But to a trusted few, she is The Equalizer - an anonymous guardian angel and defender of the downtrodden, who's also dogged in her pursuit of personal redemption.
Robyn's clandestine work remains a secret from her smart and observant daughter, Delilah, and her aunt Vi, who lives with Robyn to help her balance life as a working mother.
Joining Robyn as champions of justice are William Bishop, her former CIA handler and longtime friend; Melody "Mel" Bayani, an edgy bar owner and a colleague from Robyn's past; and Harry Keshegian, a paranoid and brilliant white-hat hacker.
As Robyn aids the oppressed and exploited, her work garners the attention of shrewd NYPD Detective Marcus Dante, who doggedly seeks to uncover the identity of the vigilante known as The Equalizer.

The harmony of the couples will be tested through musical challenges, including live performances judged by some of the biggest names in the music business.
Ultimately, the couples whose performances reveal their love and devotion to one another will continue to be given a chance to further their relationships until only one couple is left standing.
In the series premiere, "Week 1": The next chapter in Bachelor franchise history begins with the arrival of 20 hot, single musicians - 12 men and eight women - from across the USA looking for love and musical chemistry.

Will the couple fall in love over a shared microphone or does the young woman's heart belong to Trevor back at the ranch?
Matt, another charming musician, is the recipient of the second date card. Will he ask Rudi, the woman he connected with on the first night?
She seems confident he will, but instead, he chooses another lucky lady and the couple enjoys a private concert by the famous band The Plain White Tees.
