Who Do You Think You Are offers a fascinating view into the family tree of former football star Emmit Smith. He suspects that his grandmother may have had white ancestry—so he travels to Alabama and Virginia to find out. His emotional reaction to the shocking revelations is not to be missed. In fact, executive producer Lisa Kudrow even said that Emmit’s story is one of the most compelling on a recent appearance on The Today Show!

The Dog Whisperer is back in action—we just can’t get enough of Cesar Millan! He recently lost his beloved dog Daddy so it makes his work on the show even more special. Tonight, Cesar helps a veterinarian that has two dog patients that are way too fearful to go through with the treatments that they so desperately need. He also tries to calm down a hyperactive Siberian husky!

And tonight on VH1’s fascinating news/documentary show, Famous Crime Scene, go deep inside into the death of the beloved singer Selena who was murdered by the president of her fan club!

If food is on your brain tonight, then there’s plenty on to satisfy your cravings—without the calories!  We love Gordon Ramsey’s no nonsense, Simon Cowell approach to whipping restaurateurs into shape on Kitchen Nightmares. Tonight, our favorite food oriented curmudgeon takes on Bazzini, an Italian restaurant in New Jersey that features slow service and bored chefs. We can’t wait to watch Chef Ramsey whip them into shape!

The Food Network’s Best Thing I Ever Ate features the likes of Ted Allen, Curtis Stone and Giada De Laurentiis talking about their all time, most favorite snacks that they crave ranging from tacos to nachos to nuts!  Yum!

And, we love kicking back with the style challenged on TLC’s What Not To Wear. Hosts Stacy and Clinton know what they’re doing when it comes to getting dressed to impress every morning and we follow every piece of advice that they dole out!  Tonight, they help a man known for his wardrobe—and not in the way you want to be known—rev up his style!

We know that if you’re not a college football fan that there’s not a ton of stuff on TV for you tonight. We know that’s not how you want to kick off 2010. But, all hope is not completely lost—there is some new programming to whet your appetite for the year ahead!

Scrubs is new and with Zach Braff only on the show on a recurring basis, it’s only natural that Turk (Donald Faison) would need a new partner in crime. So, tonight he goes in search of his new best friend.

And if being more of a gourmet cook is on your list of New Year’s resolutions, you have the perfect opportunity to get inspired. There’s an all-new episode of Iron Chef America! Tonight, chefs Michael Symon and Michael Psilakis team up to take down twin, Italian brothers Nicola and Fabrizio Carro in the stadium kitchen.

Of course, if finding your dream home is on your mind for 2010, then there are back to back new episodes of House Hunters on HGTV. On the first episode, a family of six (plus two dogs so really they’re eight) have a $250,000 budget for a home in Las Vegas that they need to feature at least four bedrooms, a large backyard and open kitchen.

The Food Network premieres a new reality show tonight called Private Chefs of Beverly Hills. It’s about an LA based private-chef placement agency that caters to some of the most over-the-top and demanding clientele around. In the premiere episode, the chefs cater a camping trip for a group of young millionaires. We know-camping and catering definitely do not mix so you know that this is gonna be good!

Cesar Milan has a new episode of The Dog Whisperer and he sure has his hands full. He visits a neighborhood overrun with doggie drama including a German shepherd that bullies other dogs, three hyper huskies and a Labrador that likes to chew things he’s not supposed to get his hands on!

And, Kitchen Nightmares has Chef Gordon Ramsey go back and visit two restaurants that helped whip into shape in the past and evaluate their progress. Then, Chef Ramsey gets really sentimental and reflects on some of the greatest kitchen fights that he’s endured on the show!

Summer TV and Friday night are usually phrases that you never hear in the same sentence. But there is something for everyone if you want to save some dough and kick off the weekend at home—we are still in a recession in case you haven’t heard!

First up, the trivia buffs you watch TV with will be totally into Jeff Foxworthy testing the book smarts of stars such as Jack Hana and Star Jones on the celebrity edition of Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader? They’re playing for their favorite charities—it’ll definitely be interesting to see which of those two have the book smarts an elementary school student.

For the supernatural freak in your household, you can switch over to Ghost Adventures on the Travel Channel at 9pm. Tonight, Zak Bagans and his team head to Savannah, Georgia to seek out spirits at the Moon River Brewery that stands on what used to be the first hotel in the city.

And then for the fashionista in your group, you can’t miss Say Yes To The Dress on TLC at 10pm. Tonight, on the show that follows the staff of Manhattan’s Kleinfeld Bridal–one of the world’s most famous bridal salons, we meet a mother and daughter who speak their mind and a same sex couple hoping they can find the perfect attire to wear on their big day.
