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 - “Charlotte (Hour Two).” Honestly, I never saw myself as a Charlotte. I always thought I was more of a Miranda. Other people have said that I'm far more Carrie than Miranda or Charlotte. One thing I'm certainly not however is a Samantha. Nope, that's just not me.
10:00 - 11:00PM
Adventure Lodges of North America - "United States Adventure Lodges". And the summer doldrums clearly have set in over at PBS. Pledge Week is clearly over. The boss is almost certainly out of town. I kid, I kid, just because I would associate this with the travel channel and not PBS, that doesn't mean that looking at a bunch of historic inns and chalets across North America will be less exciting than Crittercam.

Washington Week with Gwen Ifill and National Journal #4708. 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 chocolate ice cream.
8:30 - 9:00PM
NOW #334. It’s the Emmy award-winning weekly newsmagazine. 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 #1120 - It’s Bill Moyers. It’s his 1,120th 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).
