Former motorcycle gang member and prison inmate turned bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman returns to pursuing fugitives in this sequel to “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” the cable series that made him a reality TV star during its 10-year run. He’s joined by wife Beth and their tireless team — dubbed “The Dirty Dozen” — but the show also may draw some viewers via another part of the Chapmans’ story: Beth’s gallant yet eventually unsuccessful battle against throat cancer.
For the first time in this show’s history, the six remaining “cheftestants” cross the pond to London for an unforgettable culinary experience in the new “London Calling — Pt. 1.” Once there, the chefs are split into two teams and tasked with feeding 36 diners, including the judges and host Gordon Ramsay’s family — at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, his flagship eatery. Knowledge that two of the chefs face elimination only cranks up the pressure further.
The hit series returns for its fourth season with “Of Friends and Frenemies,” which finds LeeAnne overwhelmed by wedding planning as her big day inches ever closer. After finally inheriting the family business, D’Andra is dismayed to discover it’s not doing nearly as well as she had thought. Baby Bruin may be dominating Brandi’s time, but her eldest daughter, Brooklyn, is posing some of the biggest challenges. New housewife Kary Brittingham joins the group.
When this sitcom launched in 2015, even people who liked this story of a 40-ish editor (Sutton Foster) struggling to survive in a youth-obsessed New York publishing world wondered how long the show could sustain its premise. Well, the answer turns out to be: indefinitely. Viewership for Season 6 — which wraps tonight — has gone up, especially in key groups, so TV Land has re-upped the comedy for a seventh season. Hilary Duff, Miriam Shor, Peter Hermann and Debi Mazar also star.
