What's on Tonight: Wipeout, The Next, Burn Notice

TV tips for Thursday, Aug. 16, 2012

Dirk Langeveld is filling in for Elissa Bass while she is on vacation. She will resume this column on Aug. 28.

Wipeout, 8 p.m., ABC

As always, I have to give deference to one of Elissa’s favorites while I’m filling in for her. Tonight, former winners team up with “memorable losers” to face challenges dubbed “Mash-Mallows” and “Grin and Bear It.” Please be grizzlies, please be grizzlies…

The Next, 9 p.m., CW

Another late summer premiere and another reality show, this one having musicians travel around the country to coach people who are shooting for a recording contract. Gloria Estefan and Nelly pay a visit in this episode.

Burn Notice, 9 p.m., USA

Good to see that this is still on. Tonight, “Fiona must break into a guarded safe in order to help a CIA asset who’s in over her head with a black market businessman. Elsewhere, Sam and Jesse track a skilled sniper and look for answers at a mercenary training camp.”

Thanks for giving a few recommendations on what to see tonight, I’m going to check and see if “The Next” has potential. And maybe grizzlies will be part of “Wipeout!” Either way I plan on recording several shows on my Dish Hopper since I won’t be home in time to see them live. I will have more than enough space on my DVR to record potential and favorite shows. My coworkers at Dish love to talk about reality shows, and I think “The Next” can be a decent one!
