Wednesday Watch List: Antiques!
Welcome to Watch List, where we identify five things on TV to watch while you stay at home and recover from the Great Earthquake Of '011. You will remember where you were when your picture frame shook ever so slightly, I tell you. LET’S GO!
BURIED TREASURE – 8:00PM (FOX) FOX's new show features former "Antique Roadshow" stars and Sotheby's appraisers Leigh and Leslie Keno as they travel around the country digging through people's houses and finding valuable crap for the owners to sell. And you may have to suspend your disbelief for this particular show, because I don't know how likely it is that the twins will just "happen" to stumble upon a $50,000 Ming dynasty armoire in some random Arkansas trailer without a little bit of goosing from the FOX production design department. ANTICIPATION: YARD SALE!
AlternateHistory – 10:00PM (Spike) There's no space in the title of this new show, because spaces are FOR THE WEAK. Anyway, "AlternateHistory" joins the likes of "Deadliest Warrior" in the hypothetical reality genre. For the premiere, the show examines what the world would be like if the Nazis had won! ANTICIPATION: NAZIS!
TOP CHEF: JUST DESSERTS – 10:00PM (Bravo - an NBC/Universal network) Gail Simmons is back for this pastry-only competition between a group of aspiring dessert chefs, each one bitchier than the last. Tonight's dessert has a fairy tale theme, so I fully expect my edible Snow White to have a delicious fondant topping. ANTICIPATION: FOOD PORN!
SLAMMED: INSIDE INDIE WRESTLING – 10:00PM (NatGeo - an NBC/Universal network) For every oiled up WWE wrestler you see on TV, there are thousands of aspiring indie wrestlers hoping to one day take their place. Tonight, you'll learn about some of these wrestlers, and some of the extreme stunts they pull (barbed wire, leaps from stacked tables) in the hopes of making the big time. It ain't pretty. ANTICIPATION: FOREIGN OBJECTS!
HAPPY ENDINGS – 9:30PM (ABC) A new episode of a scripted show on network TV! Breathe it in! ANTICIPATION: FUNNY!
