Dirty Jobs 9

It's a dirty job, but somebody has to do it.

Mike Rowe, a champion of essential workers, is rolling up his sleeves to celebrate the next generation of hardworking men and women who have made civilized life possible.

The return of Dirty Jobs allows Mike to come back for another chance to take on the jobs he's been dreaming about since the show's first run.

In the season premiere, Mike joins the hard workers responsible for building America's infrastructure.

Every day, millions of people drive over bridges and along our vast highway system. But what exactly does it take to build these complex and vital structures?

Mike apprentices with the rod busters, who work under brutal conditions and sweltering temperatures, as they twist, mold, and fabricate the iron framework to secure the nation's superstructures.

Mike travels outside Tampa, Florida, to meet with rod busters tasked with completing a bridge in just one day.

Their work is both artistic and critical, but the results of their labour are always covered with concrete – out of sight and out of mind.

Mike is ready to correct that. But will he be able to keep up with the high-pressure conditions and timeline?

Whether it's a water tower cleaner, escalator maintainer, combat surgeon, or epoxy installer, each episode showcases the unsung heroes and the communities that rely on these essential jobs.

Mike will also lend a hand to those on the frontlines protecting the nation from invasions, even when it involves glowing scorpions or destructive iguanas.

Yes, you read that right: destructive iguanas.

Are You the One?

Channel: eReality (Openview 108)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Dating Game Show, Reality Competition

Are You the One?

A social experiment on modern love, helping 10 women and 10 men find their perfect match.

These hopeful romantics participated in a rigorous matchmaking process using a unique dating algorithm created to help quantify compatibility.

The result? Recommended matches for the 20 singles with the goal of meeting the perfect partner.

Using this technology, 10 ideal pairs have been identified and will ultimately come face-to-face with their true match - the catch is that the results were kept a secret from the singles.

Throughout the course of the season, each of the potential lovers must uncover the mystery of their "soul mate's" identity.

The show selects 10 single women and 10 single men who have had no luck in finding lasting love and will first conduct a thorough assessment, using a team of professional matchmakers, psychologists, and the participant's family, friends and exes, to determine their other half.

The process will include in-depth interviews, questionnaires and compatibility testing to achieve the ultimate results.

Produced on the picturesque island of Kauai, Hawaii, the 20 singles chosen will live together knowing that their perfect match may be in the room right next to them.

Viewers will be able to follow the ups and downs as each person gets potentially one step closer to finding romantic bliss, and their reactions can be as surprising as their choices.

In addition to getting to know one another socially, the 20 singles will undergo weekly tests of physical attraction, personality traits, relationship history assessments and more.

During the quest to pick their match, the singles discover that following their heart might feel right, but if the data does not make a match they have to start their search over, leaving budding relationships behind causing tension and despair.

At the end of each week, the 20 potential lovers will scramble to find who they believe is their perfect match.

If all 10 couples match up with their pre-determined partners within 10 attempts, they will share the cash reward and more importantly, will walk away with a prized romance.

Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian 2

With the help of model and TV personality Khloé Kardashian and her team of fitness, style and beauty experts, participants get the individualised help and encouragement to transform into the person they always dreamed of becoming inside and out.

During this eight-episode season, famous celebs stop by to provide advice and tough love, including Kim Kardashian.

This season, 17 men and women commit to a physically and emotionally challenging journey to prove to themselves and those who have been negative forces in their lives that they're worthy of love and respect.

People from all walks of life confront their past, present, and future and reveal what has brought them to this pivotal point in their lives.

Whether these men and women have experienced bullying, are trying to mend relationships, or facing any other tough challenges, Khloé – who has overcome her own body issues – is there to help and will meet and check in with the participants throughout their entire process.

Khloé personally gets to know them, finds out what has broken them down, and gives them the tools they need to build themselves back up.

From an honorably discharged military veteran struggling with the loss of his identity, to newlyweds who want to get healthy before starting a family, each episode features everyday people tackling what's holding them back from being the best they can be.

However, even with the best intentions, not every journey is smooth, and not everyone makes it across the finish line.
