On TV tonight
Time Machine Chefs, 9 p.m., ABC Four chefs must make a gourmet meal with no electricity or running water. People ate like that for centuries, so we're not impressed. Try cooking real food with an Easy Bake Oven.
SERIES PREMIERE The Next: Fame Is at Your Doorstep, 9 p.m., CW Another musical competition, with Joe Jonas, Nelly, Gloria Estefan and John Rich as hosts/mentors/judges. Not a bad lineup for the CW demo, actually.
SEASON PREMIERE Braxton Family Values, 9 p.m., WEtv Six more episodes showing what Brandy wishes she were doing, but that Beyonce wouldn't be caught dead doing.
SEASON PREMIERE Extreme Chef, 10 p.m., Food Not to be outdone by a one-off like Time Machine Chefs, this season kicks off with the chefs cooking with freeze-dried foods and fires made from scratch. Easy Bake Oven, we tell you!
Sullivan & Son, 10 p.m., TBS The guys find a rare comic book and try to sell it to a collector. We're pretty sure Eide's in the Strip District would give you a decent price. (Pittsburghers out there, do you get that one?)
