It's almost impossible to survive in the highly competitive hotel business without competent customer service, because patrons who experience an unhappy hotel stay often visit online review sites to tell their negative stories. And once word gets around, guests stop coming around. That's when Anthony Melchiorri arrives on the scene. He's a hotel "fixer," the guy hotel operators call when their establishment needs to be overhauled. This hourlong series portrays the tough-love style Melchiorri uses at hotels across the country as he implements changes that include staff retraining and lobby renovations. With more than 20 years of experience in the hospitality business, Melchiorri says he knows the minute he walks into a hotel what needs to be fixed.

Anthony Bourdain had no reservations about a move to CNN. Shortly after concluding an eight-season stint at the helm of his popular Travel Channel series, the equally popular Emmy-winning host came to the news network searching for "Parts Unknown." In the hourlong weekend series -- similar in premise to Travel's "No Reservations" -- Bourdain explores the world to, he says, "eat and drink with people without fear and prejudice ... they open up to you in ways that somebody visiting who is driven by a story may not get." Enticed by the opportunity to experience cultures rarely visited by American TV, such as in the Congo, Libya and Myanmar, the chef and best-selling author also takes viewers to Colombia, Peru, Morocco and, closer to home, Koreatown in Los Angeles.
