Tater on TV: What’s on Tonight 1/4/23

Tater’s Thoughts

I was skeptical about Tough as Nails when it premiered, but we have watched every season. It’s a fun show and we always get invested in the outcome. There are some very hokey pieces to it, but I can ignore that because the challenges are interesting.

I am tempted to watch the Special Forces show. I never watch shows like Dancing With the Stars but put the “celebrities” in the jungle or make them do challenges that could kill them and I get interested.

We will probably watch Abbott and Home Economics live tonight since the two of us who watch them are home and the one that doesn’t isn’t.

I will be interested to see if HBO or Food Network pulls their NFL-themed shows after the MNF incident.

    1. I started halfway through season 2 so I have no idea what the first season was like. My daughter’s friends tell her season 3 is less cringe than the rest. After we finish that one I might need to go back and see what season 1 was like.
