TV TimeZ with a TwiZt


The Outdoor Channel (which I had no idea existed) launches 13 new series tonight.  They include:

  • Truck Academy - Original series offering a diy take on upgrading and maintenance of pickup trucks and off-road vehicles. Hosted by former Miss USA Kimberly Pressler. Premieres tonight at 9pm.   I find it REALLY odd that a beauty queen is hosting this show – do you not?
  • Jim Shockey's The Professionals - Series takes viewers behind the scenes into the life and career of Jim Shockey while traveling to dangerous hunting destinations. Premieres this Tuesday at 7pm.  I need to google Jim Shockey to see if I care about this.
  • Dream Season Celebrity - Teams go head-to-head to test their deer-hunting skills. Premieres this Tuesday at 1030pm. Is it normal to have a television show where people are hunting deers?  WWPD? (What Would PETA Do?)
  • Benelli on Assignment - Series features top bird shooting action and big game adventures in remote locations with writers and photographers who are "on assignment." Premieres this Wednesday at 5pm.  Ok, now this is getting ridiculous.  WHY does this channel exist?
  • Field & Stream's Gun Nuts presented by Smith & Wesson - Field & Stream's field editor Dave Petzal and shotguns columnist Phil Boujaily showcase the latest gun hardware in this half-hour series. Premieres this Wednesday at 930pm.
  • Gold Tip's 4CE - Series hosted by three friends, Jim Burnworth, Ray Bunney and Keith Mark will welcome a fourth host each week as they uphold American sportsmen's values. Premieres this Thursday at 7pm.
  • Wanna Go Fishing? - Host Matt Eastman asks a random individual to join him on an all-expenses paid fishing trip. Premieres this Friday at 10pm.
  • Buck Commander protected by Under Armour - MLB superstars team up with "Boss Hogg" Willie Robertson as they participate in bow practicing and lots of comic antics in the field. Premieres this Saturday at 10am and 730pm.
  • Craig Morgan All Access Outdoors - New reality show that follows country music star and avid outdoorsman Craig Morgan. Premieres this Saturday at 11am.
  • The Season with Justin Martin - Series follows world champ professional archer Justin Martin as he tries for a new title and the next great hunt. Premieres this Saturday at 830pm.
  • Boone and Crockett Country - Weekly hunting documentary honoring the best in big game hunting and conservation in North America. Premieres this Sunday at 10am.
  • Mathews' Dominant Bucks presented by Mathews Archery - Whitetail hunting expert and outdoor icon Stan Potts explores the world of hunting. Premieres this Sunday at 630pm.
  • Legends of the Fall - Series profiles six Outdoor Channel "Dream Season" and "Bow Madness" hunters. Premieres this Sunday at 11pm.
  • NOTE: This whole line-up makes me ill.

VH1 is working on a new reality series about the staff of the restaurant Beso, owned by actress Eva Longoria-Parker. Longoria-Parker's Beso has two locations, one in Hollywood and the other in Las Vegas and at this time it is not determined which location will be featured. Longoria-Parker will not star in the reality show. Read: Another pointless television show that will bomb.
