Britney & Kevin: Chaotic debuts tonight.
The long-awaited train wreck that is Britney and Kevin: Chaotic debuts tonight on UPN, as the network airs two back-to-back half-hour episodes starting at 9 p.m. ET. Coincidentally, “Chaotic” just happens to be the title of Britney’s new single. The series breaks reality ground by primarily featuring home video footage that wasn’t originally intended for broadcast; that will be augmented by interviews with Britney and Kevin. UPN says “The footage begins shortly after Britney and Kevin first met in Los Angeles and headed off to Europe together on tour, leading up to and including their wedding day.” For some context, The New York Daily News recaps Britney and Kevin’s experiences together over the past year, including the moment when Britney asked Kevin to marry her; he said no, and then “[a] few minutes later, he asks Britney to be his wife. She says yes.”

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
