It’s season premiere Friday!

First up, Captain Paul Watson and his team from the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society are back and they’re the one group that stands between a 750-ton whale-killing machine and its prey! Whale Wars follows these ''eco-pirates'' as they fight to end Japanese whaling once and for all. And tonight’s premiere kicks off the most dangerous, drama-filled and controversial season yet!

Some women have been thinking about their wedding day since they were little girls. The room, the flowers, the cake, and of course the dress. But what about their husband-to-be? Don't Tell the Bride gives $20,000 to cash-strapped couples to create the wedding of their dreams. But here's the catch! The couple is split up for the month leading up to the nuptials, and the groom has to pull off the whole thing… in secret! The bride will see the invitations when they come in the mail, the dress, mere hours before she walks down the aisle and the reception venue and meal when she arrives with the rest of her guests! On tonight’s season premiere the poor groom attempts to plan a fairytale wedding while the bridesmaids battle him all the way!

And on the season premiere of Ghost Adventures, the crew heads to California’s haunted Preston Castle. Founded in 1894, the former reform school believed in extreme discipline that included starvation, isolation, public paddling, lashings… and a murder or two! Today, visitors claim to see and hear slamming doors, falling objects, disembodied voices and ghostly physical contact. For the record, I must say these guys don’t hold a ghost bustin’ candle to Sci-Fi’s Ghost Hunters, but you will be entertained watching host Zak Bagans tonight when he becomes convinced he's been possessed by the spirit of a woman who was beaten to death there!

Notable mentions…Ryan Seacrest on the Tonight Show and Paris Hilton on Late Night with David Letterman.
