Bravo recently launched a new series called, Million Dollar Decorators. It airs Tuesday nights at 10|9c.

And, it is awesome!

About The Show:

The network’s latest docu-series follows five of the most sought-after interior decorators as they navigate the high-pressured design industry for their wealthy, famous, and extremely demanding clients. From a $20 million estate in La Jolla to the Osbourne’s new Hollywood apartment, viewers will get an all-access pass inside some of the most stunning homes in the world.

The series will explore the work and personal lives of Los Angeles-based designers Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Kathryn Ireland, Jeffrey Alan Marks, Mary McDonald, and Nathan Turner. These tastemakers often exchange advice and horror stories, but are also forced to compete for the same top-tier clients and their endless budgets. Every decision and minute spent is crucial as the decorators rush to finish their projects on time and deliver the absolute perfection their clients expect.

I’ve only watched one episode, but I am already hooked!

I am absolutely fascinated with the way these designers come up with such fabulous decorating ideas. And the homes? Oh the homes are simply incredible. Of course, there’s a part if me that’s just a teeny bit envious, because I will never have 5 million dollars to spend on the decor of my home. However, it’s quite enjoyable to watch those who can afford that lifestyle!

Franklin & Bash

This summer, TNT will be launching a new series, Franklin & Bash, tonight at 9|8c.

About The Show:

When they’re not hanging out at their favorite hot dog stand pontificating on what they’d go through to enjoy a night with their favorite female celebrities, Jared Franklin (Breckin Meyer) and Peter Bash (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) are chasing down their latest clients…sometimes literally. With business cards in hand, they’re ready to nab a client within seconds after a car accident, arrest for solicitation or any other incident where their legal services may be needed. Once in the courtroom, they show their flair for the dramatic and the shocking.

Peter has a knack for connecting with jury and judge, while Jared loves sticking it to authority every chance he gets. Despite their bad-boy antics, brash presentation and devil-may-care attitudes, Jared and Peter are good lawyers who are willing to do anything for a client, no matter who the client might be. That quality catches the attention of Stanton Infeld (Malcolm McDowell), a Renaissance man and the patriarch of Infeld Daniels, one of the top law firms in Los Angeles. He sees a lot of himself in the young men and decides to recruit the pair to bring a fresh energy to the firm. Jared and Peter are joined by their two legal aides, the brilliant, brassy Carmen (Dana Davis) and the agoraphobic, verminophobic Pindar (Kumail Nanjiani).

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love me some courtroom dramas. However, I’m just a little burnt out in the whole concept. The last really good courtroom television show I loved was Boston Legal. Second only to the original Law & Order. On the other hand,  I have always been fans of the two actors Breckin Meyer and Mark-Paul Gosselaar. Therefore, I am rooting for this series to be successful. I’ve seen a few commercials and it looks like this has some potential.

Please watch the trailer here:

Now tell me people, what do you think? Is this even worth checking out?

I will watch the season premiere. And hopefully, it will grab me right off the bat.
