NBC debuts Grease: You’re the One I Want, The Apprentice 6 on Sunday

Two of the four reality shows debuting on Sunday are on NBC, which is devoting its entire prime-time space that evening to kicking off one new and one old series.

Grease: You’re the One I Want debuts at 8 p.m. ET. The show is a talent search with a big prize: roles in Grease on Broadway. The show’s choreographer tells TV Guide that there were “many great people, and so many terrible ones” at the auditions, which will take two episodes. Tonight, Olivia Newton-John makes a guest appearance, and the show is hosted by Denise Van Outen and, ugh, Billy Bush.

At 9:30, The Apprentice 6 debuts in yet another new time slot (it will typically air at 9). The show moves to Los Angeles, where it will introduce new twists. The first 20 minutes or so are online.

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.
