If you were given $101,000 and had to decide whether to keep it all or share it, what would you do? That's the question facing two families as this unscripted series premieres. Each learns the other's circumstances over 72 hours and must determine whether to split the cash that's in a briefcase -- not knowing the second family has been given an identical briefcase and has to make the same decision about them. The show was created by Dave Broome ("The Biggest Loser").
The crusade by his alter ego to bring down Starling City's crime rate has been so successful, Oliver (Stephen Amell) puts more time into leading a normal life in "The Calm."

Former movie "Superman" Brandon Routh makes his debut in the role of Ray Palmer, alias the Atom. Emily Bett Rickards also stars.
If someone happened to show up at your house at dinner time ... a.) Would you let them in?, and b.) Would you have the ingredients handy to make a satisfactory meal for a guest? The second question is the concern for the contestants who evaded the season's first elimination, as the new episode "You're the Apple of My Eye" finds them using the basic ingredients in a "Mystery Box." Then, they have to put their own spins on a traditional favorite, an apple pie.
Television characters played by Lee Majors and Lindsay Wagner helped the word "bionic" enter the common lexicon, and "My Bionic Pet" explores the phenomenon as it relates to animals in real life. Prosthetics have enabled creatures deprived of such appendages as fins and tails to experience having them again, thanks to the wonders of science and engineering. A number of creatures who have benefited are showcased here, as are the innovators who have aided them.
Different results emerge from "The Day We Almost Died," about the aftermath of a narrowly avoided car accident. Claire (Julie Bowen) vows to let her hair down more, and Phil (Ty Burrell) resolves to be more of a proactive person. Haley and Alex (Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter) resolve not to fight, but for Manny (Rico Rodriguez), the outcome is more drastic: He says he'll never get in a car again. Recurring guest star Rob Riggle returns.
A killer is sorry for a series of murders committed in Virginia, but that doesn't stop the perpetrator from continuing in "Fate." While working the case, Rossi (Joe Mantegna) also must deal with a personal matter brought on by someone familiar with his past. Amber Stevens ("22 Jump Street") and Tina Holmes ("Six Feet Under") guest star. Shemar Moore, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Thomas Gibson also star.
Now a demon, Dean (Jensen Ackles) isn't too concerned about Sam (Jared Padalecki) -- who is trying desperately to locate his sibling -- in "Black."

Neil Armstrong will be forever remembered for making that declaration in 1969, and "First Man on the Moon" recalls the circumstances that ultimately placed him on the lunar surface.

Fans of "Wipeout" likely will be disappointed not to have that show around this summer, but here's a possible substitute ... from the same producers. The premiere, "Bullseye Buggy Jump," presents Kellan Lutz ("Twilight") and Godfrey as the hosts who challenge four men and four women. The contestants must perform such tasks as rappelling down a building or jumping between fast-moving speedboats to hit literal bullseyes and win as much as $50,000.
