‘Chopper Live’ Kicks Off Tonight on Discovery Channel!

December 10, 2012 | by kdelmonico

Chopper Live Road to RevengeThe excitement is palpable here at Discovery’s broadcast center, where I just arrived to gear up for tonight’s kickoff to Chopper Live. When you’ve been prepping for a live event like tonight, the day always arrives with a mix of nervousness, excitement and a smidge of exhaustion.

Tonight, fans will see Chopper Live: Road to Revenge, a two-hour special starting at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel, chronicling the four teams working on building the ultimate chopper to bring to tomorrow night’s live show in Vegas.

On tomorrow’s Chopper Live: The Revenge, Jesse James, Senior, Junior and Chopper Live rookies, Richard & Aaron from Discovery’s Fast ‘N Loud, will debut their bikes and let America vote to decide which team will come out on top.

We want to hear from you! Chopper Live: The Revenge is all about the fans so check out some of the ways you can get involved:

  • Show Your Team Loyalty on GetGlue: In addition to downloading team badges at ChopperLive.com, you can check in on GetGlue with their loyalties to unlock team-specific stickers, in addition to exclusive stickers during Monday and Tuesday night’s installments.
  • Take Sides Through Live, On-Air Tweets: Tonight’s Chopper Live: Road to Revenge special at 9pm ET/PT will feature Tweets from fans curated in real-time into the show. Are you #TeamJunior, #TeamSenior, #TeamJesse or #TeamFastNLoud?
  • Text to Vote: Beginning at the end of tonight’s episode, you can text your votes to determine which team wins Chopper Live: The Revenge. Will the Twitter buzz match the outcome of the official vote?
  • Tune Into the Chopper Live ‘Backstage Pass’: Right before Tuesday’s live event at 8:45pm ET, get behind-the-scenes access at ChopperLive.com. Hosted by Chris Jacobs (of Overhaulin’), the Backstage Pass will feature interviews with the builders during on-air commercial breaks, a look at what fans are saying on Twitter and more.

It’s Mother’s Day (x4) with TLC’s ‘Sister Wives’

May 10, 2012 | by kdelmonico

Happy (early) Mother’s Day! I’m so excited that I get to spend Mother’s Day with my incredible, beautiful mom, but I am also secretly looking forward to Sunday for another reason — the return of TLC‘s Sister Wives!

Sister Wives is one of those shows I just can’t miss, and I was thrilled to be able to work on the show in my previous role on the TLC Social Media team. To me, it truly represents what TLC is all about: life worth watching.

When we last left the Brown household, the family was adjusting to life in Las Vegas, as well as welcoming this little bundle of joy, Robyn and Kody’s first baby together.

On Sunday, we catch up with the family during their first Christmas in Vegas, and the weight of living in four separate homes continues to be a burden on the family. Meri and Robyn also have to address a big question hanging in the air: after the troubles Meri has had conceiving a child, will Robyn become a surrogate for Meri?

Sister Wives premieres on TLC this Sunday at 9pm ET/PT. Check out a sneak peek below and have a happy Mother’s Day!

They’re Back: ‘Tanked’ Returns to Animal Planet

April 13, 2012 | by kdelmonico

What do you get when you combine two wacky brothers-in-law, some of the coolest aquariums you could ever imagine and all of the craziness of a family-owned business? Animal Planet favorite, Tanked. The show is back for a new season tomorrow and brothers-in-law Wayde and Brett are still up to their old antics. In tomorrow’s premiere, they guys head to New York to work on an, um, interesting request: building a shark tank for an orthodontist’s office. I guess they’re looking for creative new ways to get people to like going to the dentist?

Check out a sneak peek below and don’t miss the premiere of Tanked tomorrow at 9pm ET/PT on Animal Planet!

December 5, 2011 | by aharris

American Chopper Live We’re used to seeing Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. battle it out to create the baddest bikes around…but what happens when we introduce another expert builder, Jesse James, into the mix? American Chopper fans are going to find out in less than an hour with the premiere of American Chopper Live: The Build-Off at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel.

This two-night event pits Senior, Junior and Jesse against each other with only one being named champ tomorrow night in a live show from The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. And the Build-Off title means even more since it’s coming from the most important jury: the fans. Tonight’s two-hour special will take us inside all three shops as the bikes are being fabricated and at 11pm ET the American Chopper Live poll will open, with the winner announced live on national TV on Tuesday at 9pm ET.

Check out a sneak peek from tonight’s episode below and make sure to check in on GetGlue both nights and tell us if you’re Team Senior, Team Junior or Team Jesse for special stickers.
