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.

Possessed by a strong curiosity and, apparently, an even stronger digestive system, host Andrew Zimmern (a chef and food writer by trade) traverses the world in pursuit of unusual regional delicacies and startling native "delights" on the menu, as he tries to ferret out the weirdest foods a location has to offer -- possibly including ferret, actually. In addition to vivid descriptions of the taste and texture of the foods he discovers, Zimmern also provides a short history of each dish.

Being the chairman and CEO of multibillion-dollar corporation Camping World takes up a lot of Marcus Lemonis' time. But when he's not running the company, he's searching for struggling businesses in need of cash. Lemonis tries to help turn each company around by offering cash for a piece of the business and a percentage of the profits. Now he's bringing that process to TV with this series, in which he puts millions of dollars of his own money on the line. Once he's working with the company, he does whatever is necessary to save the business and make a profit for himself -- even if it means firing the president. Although some of his changes could be considered radical, the companies should be willing to go along with them because in the last 10 years, Lemonis has successfully turned around more than 100 companies. To quote the not-so-humble Lemonis, "When I have skin in the game, my way is the only way your business will survive."
