What to watch on Wednesday, February 15…
Let’s just get our priorities straight here: FIRST is buying up tons of Valentine’s Day candy at steep discounts. Television comes in a distant second. Save me a red-foiled peanut butter cup?
SEASON 24 PREMIERE, 8pm, CBS
Survivor: One World
It’s back! Primetime’s finest hour of HD nature photography and amateur swimsuit modeling! Oh, right, and strategy. Brutal, brutal strategy. Survivor‘s 24th season (the fourth to film in Samoa) centers on the concept that both tribes—divided along gender lines—will share the same beach, thus encouraging much clandestine scheming behind bushes. Tune in to experience first impressions and see which of the 18 castaways will be the first to get the boot.
Tonight Phil and Claire come to regret getting too drunk around Mitchell and Cameron’s friends. It’s a tale as old as time, really.
In “Chaos,” unexpected drama breaks out at Emily’s engagement party, putting her loved ones in jeopardy. Elsewhere Charlotte struggles to deal with the knowledge of her family’s treachery, and Jack searches for Amanda. (Check behind the green screen!)
Everyone in the Hamptons needs help this week: Hank helps Jack deal with his illness, plus Boris’s cousin asks Evan to help her repair her relationship with Boris. Meanwhile Jill’s nephew turns to HankMed for help dealing with his boss.
Top Chef: Texas
Has Top Chef gotten kinda of trashy with its challenges lately? Forcing chefs to stumble blindfolded or ride bikes around town begging for ingredients? I don’t know, but the shenanigans continue tonight when the final four travel to British Columbia to compete in Winter Olympics-inspired challenges prior to cooking their meals. Because all great chefs can successfully fire a rifle in the snow, right?
