TV LAND?Tonight at 9pm is the premiere episode of Selling New York, the broker-following NYC reality show we've been minorly obsessed with. The summary of tonight's episode: "After a wealthy NYC couple gets a divorce, veteran broker Michele Kleier and her family rush to schedule a last minute photo shoot and open house to sell their lush Park Avenue apartment.
