    Primetimer's editors break down what's new and noteworthy on television today.

    As one commenter in our forums remarked after last week's Bachelorette finale, the Bachelor franchise is going to have to work mighty hard to out-hot mess Hannah Brown's Bachelorette season. Still, if any show in the Bachelorverse is up to the challenge, it's almost certainly Bachelor in Paradise.

    This year's BiP looks like it will follow the mold of past seasons, promising plenty of hook-ups, lots of drama and at least one fistfight. Look for a slew of familiar faces, including Chris Bukowski, returning for a record-breaking sixth appearance on a Bachelor franchise show.

    SEASON PREMIERE: In tonight's Bachelor in Paradise Season 6 kick-off, Demi Burnett wastes no time, sparking a connection with Derek Peth on night one (apparently he won't be her only makeout partner this season).
