DISCOVERY, 9:00 pm ET
A new season opens with the new episode "Virgin Ground," in which Shawn Pomrenke ignites a modern-day gold rush when he offers the fleet access to his virgin claim of untouched Bering Sea floor, which is rumored to contain an estimated millions of dollars in gold. Access to that presumed fortune, however, comes at a price.
ABC, 8:00 pm ET
Two beer enthusiasts -- "suds buds," if you will -- from Pittsburgh present a new technique for keeping beer nicely chilled for a longer duration. An entrepreneur and a former aerospace engineer from New York reveal their plans to take vending machines into the 21st century, while two critter lovers from Austin, Texas, pitch natural, organic bug repellents that can be used safely with pets. Also seen: an update on LovePop, a line of 3D pop-up greeting cards.
Masters of Illusion
CW, 8:00 pm ET
A good idea of what this episode supplies is provided by the title "Extreme Levitations, Mind Melds, and Water into Wine." One might hope, however, that all three elements don't occur simultaneously. Jonathan Pendragon, Eric Buss, Naathan Phan, Barry & Stuart, Chris Randall and David & Dania are the showcased illusionists. Dean Cain is the host. Another episode immediately follows.
