TV briefs: "The Bachelor"

The Fresno BeeDecember 6, 2013 

Another chance: Juan Pablo Galavis, a single father from Miami, is ready to find love. He'll have his own opportunity to find his wife and stepmother to his daughter when he stars in the 18th edition of "The Bachelor," premiering at 8 p.m. Jan. 6 on ABC.

Pablo, 32, was a fan favorite on the ninth edition of "The Bachelorette." But, Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock couldn't see a future with Juan Pablo and sent him home from Barcelona. Although he was blindsided by not getting a rose, the experience of being on "The Bachelorette" opened his eyes to the possibility of finding real and everlasting love.

Changes are coming: ABC will add four new shows to its lineup starting in January. Those shows include "The Assets," "Killer Women," "Mind Games," and "Mixology." In addition, the network has scheduled premiere dates for the new season of "Suburgatory," and the cooking competition series "The Taste," now expanded to two hours.

"The Taste" and "The Assets" start Jan. 2, and "Killer Women" begins Jan. 7. "Suburgatory" is back Jan. 15 and "Mixology" launches Feb. 26. "Mind Games" starts March 11.

Here's some dirt: Season two of Travel Channel's "Dangerous Grounds" just got more dangerous. Coffee importer and adventurer Todd Carmichael's big name clients are as demanding as ever. They send him to find the perfect coffee in the world's most dangerous places, from the Amazon jungles of Brazil to the conflict zones of Guatemala.

Premiering at 9 p.m. Jan. 28, the series features Carmichael as he treks around the globe for his biggest clients including chef Jean Georges Vongerichten, chef Mario Batali, Starr Restaurants, Dean & Deluca, West Elm Stores and Four Seasons Hotels. For this self-made businessman who grew his company bean by bean, failure is not an option.
