I’m a Celebrity debuts tonight.
ABC will air its new reality TV show I’m a Celebrity–Get Me Out of Here live for 15 nights in a row starting tonight at 10 p.m. ET. In a strategy designed to confuse the crap out of everyone, ABC is changing the show’s airtime almost nightly; consult ABC’s schedule for other dates and times, which span every available prime-time slot. The cast of 10 celebrities–including Melissa Rivers, Tyson Beckford, Stuttering John, Downtown Julie Brown, Robin Leach, and some other people you’ve never heard of before–will live in the Australian jungle and will at times be at the mercy of the audience, who will vote to keep celebrities on the show and vote to select challenge participants. The show is an import from the UK, where it has aired twice.

Plus: an interview with the actor who played Verlox and the ogre.
