R2H2: THE HISTORY CHANNEL WEEK IN PREVIEW
(The show opens with a Chuck-like montage of History Channel images.)
B. Traven Jr. here. I will be your host for our new show R2H2: The History Channel Week In Preview. Please don't sue us, Disney! Ha, ha! Hopefully, this show will be more profitable than the infomercials that usually inhabit our Sunday 5:30 am time slot. Ha, ha!
Let's take a peek at the docket: This Monday we will feature an America Unearthed marathon with my good friend Scott Wolter, author of Hooked X (9780878393121) 18.95. In his new episode at 9:00 pm, he will search his home state of Minnesota for clues to the alleged Viking ancestry of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Some people believe Ms. Wilder is descended from the Viking settlers who erected the Kensington Rune Stone in 1362. Mr. Wolter begins his search with an investigation of the new annotated autobiography by Laura Ingalls Wilder, Pioneer Girl (9780984504176) 39.95.
On Tuesday, surprise, we have an Ancient Aliens marathon. The new episode is an examination of former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver and his connection to our alien overlords. Here's a clip from the show:
David Childress (in a high pitched, squeaky voice): Donald Driver's new book is Quickie Stands Up To A Bully (9780692289280) 24.80. And there's a reason they call him Quickie. He is much faster than a normal human being. He's quite possibly a human-alien hybrid, or as some alien astronaut theorists believe, he may have had alien DNA spliced into his genetic material.
Giorgio Tsoukalos: I'm not saying he's an alien, but he's an alien.
On Wednesday, you guessed it, we have scheduled a Search for Lost Giants marathon with Jim Viera. On his latest episode, Jim examines the bloodline of Anthony Robbins, author of Money Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom (9781476757803) 28.00 and co-star of the movie Shallow Hal. Physically, Tony is enormous. Could his lineage include the Lost Giants?
And finally on Thursday, Andy Cohen, host of a myriad Bravo channel shows and author of The Andy Cohen Diaries (9781627792288) 26.00 joins us on Modern Marvels. On this week's episode, we will explore the marvel of how Bravo is still a viable network.
Thanks for joining us and if we're not canceled, we'll see you next week. Ha, ha!
Odds & Sods
James Patterson may have actually written his latest Alex Cross novel, Hope To Die (9780316210966) 29.00. This time he has chosen to forgo his usual ghostwriters, a group of Vietnamese children in a Ho Chi Minh City sweatshop, and instead, do it the old-fashioned way -- write it himself.
Do you believe in miracles? Sportscaster Al Michaels' new book, You Can't Make This Up (9780062314963) 28.99 is really starting to take off. This one could be the big sports book for this holiday season. I have to admit that he is one of the few announcers that I do not find annoying.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving! It's back to the trenches on Friday . . .
