American Casino debuts tonight.
The Discovery Channel rolls out its 13-episodes Las Vegas-set American Casino tonight at 8 p.m. ET. It’s not to be confused with Mark Burnett’s The Casino, which debuts in 10 days on FOX.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal examines the differences and similarities between the two shows and their subjects, while The New York Post’s Linda Stasi reviews The Discovery Channel’s show and says it’s “riveting.”
