Five Shows to Put on Your TiVo
The Naked Archaeologist - I love watching the history channel and this Canadian show is great. Uber-jewish host Simcha Jacobovici may not be an archeologist but he's great on this show. In fact he is a controversial documentary director/producer. He investigates biblical stories and tries to match them up with real hard archaeological evidence. And he makes it really funny by mixing in clips from public domain movies. It's on Wednesdays.
Girls Next Door - Season 5 is still not scheduled but I enjoy watching episodes again and again. It's my favorite reality show ever.
30 Days - Season 3 starts on June 3rd with new 30 day adventures. Morgan spends 30 days working in a coal mine. New topics this year include animal rights, life on an Indian reservation, and same sex parenting.
Mind of Mencia - Carlos is funny and sexy. He's got a great skit comedy show. This season he added a new segment based on real things his parent's put him through as a kid like taking him to a cock fight. I laughed really hard at the season premier last night.
