Chip Shot: Don’t Miss the Season Premiere of ‘America’s Greatest Makers’ on TBS

Intel brings Makers into the mainstream with the season premiere of “America’s Greatest Makers” on TBS at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) Tuesday. Intel teamed up with Shark Tank producer Mark Burnett to create a new reality competition in which inventors compete for a $1 million grand prize. Tonight, the first 12 out of 24 teams of inventors will pitch their ideas to a panel of judges. The teams hail from across the country, from Brooklyn to the Bay Area. Their innovations are diverse and span many areas of our lives, including high school seniors looking to keep people connected to their pets, a father and daughter team looking to inspire girls with a love of math and science via DIY LED fashion, to a group of boomers looking to provide traceability in our food chain with a farm-to-tech-to-table technology. Tonight’s guest judge is sports legend and entrepreneur Kenny Smith, along with financial expert Carol Roth, co-host of truTV’s “Hack My Life” Kevin Pereira, and Intel CEO Brian Krzanich.
