The This Old House Hour - Episode TBA. It’s This Old House and Ask This Old House. It’s like maintenance… for your home. Wait, no, that’s exactly what it is. That doesn’t mean it’s not awesome though. Seriously, The This Old House Hour is one of the finest home improvement hours on PBS. No joke.
9:00 - 10:00PM
Antiques Roadshow "Tucson (Hour Three)". The Roadshow has gone west, landing smack dab in the middle of Tucson. It would be better if they were in Winslow, so that they could be standing on the corner in Winslow, Arizona, it’d be such a fine sight to see. Take it easy, don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy.
10:00 - 11:00PM
Great Lodges of the National Parks - "Glacier Lodges." There are lodges in some of our national parks. Some of them are in Glacier National Park. Now, I know what you're thinking because I thought it too, but no, the lodges here themselves are not made of glaciers. That would be truly awesome though, wouldn't it?

Washington Week with Gwen Ifill and National Journal #4912. Another whole week has gone by and good old Gwen Ifill and National Journal are here to fill us in. For the record, I like to pretend the National Journal is a sidekick, like Robin to Batman, Starsky to Hutch, or chocolate sauce to Double Dutch Chocolate ice cream.
8:30 - 9:00PM
NOW on PBS #538. It’s the Emmy award-winning weekly news magazine. It looks at issues facing our democracy. The show is hosted by David Brancaccio. And, even better, they still send me e-mails (I think that makes me cool and them nice). Thanks, Now, you guys are awesome!
9:00 - 10:00PM
Bill Moyers Journal #1323. It’s Bill Moyers. It’s his 1,323rd journal (not really, but I’m not going to explain to you the way in which TV shows are numbered at this point in time, maybe later if you’re nice). He’s a good journalist so I assume this will be good journalism (at least the odds are it will).
