Spell-Mageddon 9 p.m., ABC Family
The makers of this show are probably kicking themselves. They really should have named it “Spell-nado,” right? Because -nado is the new –mageddon and the new –gate, too. Anyhow, the contestants on this show have to compete in a spelling bee while running obstacle courses that involve ice-water baths and crazily blinking lights. In other words, they have to be smart while doing stupid things.
Family Beef 9 p.m., National Geographic
Remember Lex van den Berghe from “Survivor: Africa”? Remember how he and “Big Tom” Buchanan formed an unlikely bond? Me neither. Well, now Lex is back in the reality TV realm, and he is executive producing this new show about Big Tom’s family. “Family Beef” will milk drama out of three generations of Buchanans (above) who run a cattle ranch in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
