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.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
