'The Dead Zone'

Based on the novel by Stephen King, this thriller follows Johnny Smith (Anthony Michael Hall), a teacher who gets into a car accident that leaves him in a coma. He wakes up after six years, only to discover that he has since developed psychic abilities: visions of the past and future that come on when he touches both people and things. Needing to move on from his old life (that his wife has moved on from as well), Smith starts using this newfound ability to help solve crimes and become a force for good in his community.

'Kitchen Nightmares'

Gordon Ramsay is on a mission to help struggling restaurants get back on their feet. The celebrated chef travels across the country to lend his expertise to eateries that have lost the plot long ago as they grapple with poor management, food safety issues, issues with their menus, and a cavalcade of other problems that keep them from flourishing. In the end, Ramsay gives them complete makeovers from the inside and out, from their decor to their menus, and works to get each business running like a well-oiled machine. It's up to them, of course, to take what they've learned and run with it.
