Magnolia Network

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Magnolia Network on cable

Chip and Joanna Gaines are bringing their stable of content to cable TV, with a whole channel dedicated to their original home, design, food, gardening, and arts series (replacing DIY Network on your dial). "Everybody was pawing at us for more television. What kind of television can you be involved in and how many hours and how many dollars can we pay you for those hours?" Chip Gaines previously told EW. "Discovery CEO David Zazlav put all that aside... He said if we coupled you with one of our businesses, we have the opportunity to do something great together." Magnolia's lineup will include many of the shows that have recently been available to stream on Discovery+, including Magnolia Table, which sees Joanna Gaines sharing her favorite recipes; Restoration Road, in which carpenter Clint Harp travels the country in search of historical structures that need restoring; and, of course, Fixer Upper: Welcome Home, a continuation of the Gainses' beloved renovation series. —Tyler Aquilina

The Amazing Race

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on CBS

Season Premiere
The Amazing Race experienced the ultimate Roadblock during filming on season 33 when the show was forced to shut down filming in Feb. 2020 due to the COVID outbreak. That led to the franchise's longest Pit Stop ever: 19 months. When filming finally resumed in 2021, it was a whole new Race with a whole new set of (COVID safety imposed) rules. Of course, none of that will be on display during tonight's season premiere, which will harken back to a simpler time when hugs and high-fives were aplenty and social distancing was just something you did to stay home and watch your favorite CBS reality show. If this is your favorite, then enjoy the long-awaited return of Phil Keoghan's expertly cocked eyebrow. —Dalton Ross
