September 11th Tenth Anniversary TV Specials Scheduled: How Much Will You Watch?
I doubt I’m alone in being unable to believe that it’s been ten years since 9/11. Regardless of how time flies, the tenth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon is quickly approaching and naturally, TV networks are set to begin airing specials.
Shark Week Preview: The Great White Invades And Jaws Comes Home
Shark Week 2011 kicks off tomorrow. For those of you prepared to camp out in front of your TVs in the evenings all week, devouring as much shark-related shenanigans as you can, we have a couple of video previews for you, as well as a look at the stickers GetGlue.com is offering for check-ins throughout the week.
Jake Gyllenhaal To Pit Man Vs Wild With Bear Grylls And The Discovery Channel
Discovery might be the only network with reality TV that I can stand. Their programs are what reality television should be because, like all the best documentaries, they offer a window into worlds we may not otherwise get a chance to see. For example, the crazy survival situations that someone like Bear Grylls gets into on his show Man vs. Wild. Once again, it looks like Bear will have company on at least one of this season's adventures
Discovery Delivering Dinosaurs, Mythbusters, And Penn & Teller To 2011 Comic-Con
Starz isn’t the only network to offer some exciting details on their Comic-Con plans today. The Discovery Channel will also be playing host to a few panels at the San Diego convention this July. In addition to a Mythbusters panel, there will also be a panel for Penn and Teller’s new series and one for Discovery’s upcoming new show Reign of the Dinosaurs.
First Look At Andy Samberg, Chief Shark Officer For Discovery's Shark Week
One of the biggest annual events on television is just around the corner. Yes, Shark Week is coming to Discovery at the end of July, and EW has our first look at this year's host, Andy Samberg...or, sorry, their Chief Shark Officer.
Oprah's OWN Network Gains Monetary Boost
Let’s hope for its success. We don’t need a Lifetime 2.
Discovery Indefinitely Postpones Michael Jackson Autopsy Special
After an advertisement depicted a body with a sheet over it extending Michael’s signature glove, the executors of the Jackson estate, as well as over nine thousand fans, signed protests asking Discovery not to air the special
Michael Jackson's Estate Executors Appeal To Discovery To Pull Autopsy Special
Discovery Channel’s bone-picking appears to have gone over to the almost literal sense as the network plans to air a reenactment of Jackson’s autopsy in Europe next month.
President Obama Does Basic Cable
Sure, it may seem like a foolish waste of time for the leader of the free world to appear on basic cable, seeing as how he has two ongoing military operations and an economy to fix, but we all need a little rest and relaxation now and again.
Spielberg Teams With Discovery To Predict The Future
Just a couple of weeks ago I was watching Back to the Future II and thinking, this probably won’t be what things are like in five years. Somehow I think Spielberg might have a better vision of what’s to come for the world than Zemeckis did back in 1989. We’ll find out when his new project with Discovery airs.
Sarah Palin To Star In Alaska Themed Reality Show
Word is officially in. Sarah Palin’s getting her own reality show! Discovery Communications signed a deal with the former governor of Alaska for her to star in a series centering on the 49th state.
2008 Summer TV Preview: MythBusters
I’m thinking this series probably ranges from really interesting and educational to totally pointless depending on what’s being explored in each episode. Either way, if anything, this show does look like it could help people brush up on their small-talk skills. I mean, if you knew whether or not explosives were a good way to tenderize meat, you’d have a great topic to bring up at your next dinner party, right?
Video Clips: Man Vs. Wild Moves To Wednesday Nights
If you’re a fan of the Discovery Channel series Man Vs. Wild, be advised that the series is moving to Wednesday nights as of this week. I’ve never seen this show but after checking out a few video clips (which we’ve got here for you to check out!) I don’t think I can handle this one. I nearly lost my dinner watching the brief promo and as for the clips, well if you’re not already familiar with the show then you’ll just have to see for yourself.
Oprah Continues Quest To OWN Everything
Exactly how powerful is Oprah Winfrey? Not only does she now have her own cable channel—she didn’t even have to pay for it. OWN, which stands for “Oprah Winfrey Network” is half-owned by Winfrey’s Harpo productions and half-owned by Discovery, yet will not be part of the Discovery Network.
