Combat Missions debuts tonight.
Mark Burnett’s Combat Missions, hosted by Survivor‘s Rudy Boesch, premieres tonight on USA Network at 10 p.m. ET. The 15 episode series “pits four elite squads comprised of six non-active military and law enforcement professionals against one another … to compete for bounty–and, more importantly, for honor and pride.” The winning team gets $150,000, and then the members of that squad face off against each other, with the winner receiving $250,000. What critics are saying:
- “an exercise in utter manipulation due to its arrival as the genuine article develops overseas”
- “gripping, addictive reality TV with the added bonus of currency”
- “playing war games might seem trivial, but every time a player falls during one of these combat missions, it’s hard not to think about…real casualties”
