At 8p The Hero debuts on TNT and you don’t want to miss the show. Nine people compete to be The Hero and to win $1,000,000. If you are going to win that amount of money than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is going to make you work for it. Tonight some of the contestants will dangle from the roof one of the tallest buildings in Panama with just a rope and they will have to swing towards each other until they are holding hands. If that doesn’t make you poop in your pants, then I don’t know what will. And that is just one of the many grueling challenges they will face. But there is more than the physical challenges there are the mental ones too. The jackpot starts at 0 and every time they win, that money will go in to the pot. But the contestants can decide to keep that money for themselves lowering the final value. Would a true hero take that temptation or would he or she share the money? You will have to tune in to find out.
Then at 9p we travel to 72 Hours. Each week 3 teams of 3 strangers will be dropped down into a remote area for three days all to find a suitcase full of $100,000. The 9 people will only be given single bottle of water and a GPS tracking device as their guide and they will have to do the rest. They will trek through some of the toughest terrain and if they are the first team to find the winning suitcase, then they are $100,000 richer and a whole lot stronger. 72 Hours is a beautifully shot show that a mix of Survivor and Amazing Race. Why go outside on a hot summer night when you can just watch this show instead.
