Scream Queens, Real Chance of Love, Ski Patrol debut tonight

At 8 p.m. ET, truTV debuts Ski Patrol with two back-to-back half-hour episodes. It follows teams of ski patrols at Crystal Mountain in Washington and Blue Mountain in Pennsylvania. The network’s description of the first episode illustrates its focus: “a young man faces paralysis after taking a ski pole to the chin while attempting a difficult stunt” and “one young girl shatters her wrist after a spill on the mountain but falls even harder for the patroller who helps her.”

At 9, VH1 gives us yet another spin-off of its popular franchise as I Love New York finalists and brothers Real and Chance, known as the “Stallionaires,” get 11 episodes to sift through 15 woman who want to date them. Real Chance at Love will not deviate from the format established by earlier series, which makes sense considering that its producers admit they’re just producing the same show over and over again. Here’s the trailer for the latest carbon copy:

At 10, VH1 gives us something original in its latest competition series. On Scream Queens, 10 actresses will compete for a role in Saw VI, the sixth movie in the franchise. During eight episodes, they’ll compete in challenges that VH1 says range from “working with bugs, gore and stunts to acting across from A-list talent, the girls will be put through an intense horror-acting boot camp.” The show is judged by three people: director James Gunn; acting coach John Homa; and Shawnee Smith, who plays Amanda in the Saw franchise and mentors the contestants. Here’s its trailer:
