Here’s hoping Season 13 proves to be lucky for Theresa Caputo as she deals with quite a few life challenges, even as she moves to a new night.

On top of everything else, her house currently is under construction. Celebrity readings on tap this season include actresses Barbara Eden, Annie Potts, Cindy Williams and chef Anne Burrell.


RX Early Detection: A Cancer Journey With Sandra Lee

8 p.m. ET on HBO – Premiere
Daytime Emmy-winning Food Network personality Sandra Lee opens up a very personal and challenging chapter of her life in this informative new documentary, which chronicles Lee’s experience after learning that she had breast cancer. Airing in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the film follows Lee as she receives her diagnosis, then seeks treatment and undergoes surgery. It’s a vanity-free project that manages to keep an objective distance to maximize clarity in its message to other women who face the same ordeal.
