That's amusing! Next time I can't sleep, I'll tune in to that. See if it puts me to sleep or not!

It's on early in the evening here too. Wouldn't it make more sense on a show that airs later or overnight?

Antiques Roadshow is like a low-key version of House, MD for me. I spend a good chunk of both shows talking at the TV trying to beat them to the punch (the ID and estimated value on AR, the diagnosis and treatment on House). How I never got into game shows is beyond me... oh yeah, it'd because Jeopardy! seems to have been dumbing down over the years and Win Ben Stein's Money was canned years ago.

I'm not sure I want to even try to explain that demographic.

I think PBS is trying to appeal to new donors.

Most of the local sponsors for AR are retailers in the North Dallas Design District. I've taunted greeneyed_devil that we're just a few minutes' drive from Eurway. (She has hot midcentury modern taste in furnishings.)

I would think AR would be enough to put most people to sleep. :-)

I wouldn't be surprised. I mostly watch AR for the eye candy. There was a beautiful piece of Georgian-period needlework on tonight's episode that the owner bought at a yard sale for $20!

I may be condemned to foodie purgatory for admitting this, but I nodded off this afternoon during the No Reservations marathon on the Travel Channel.

Actually, back here it does (also) air overnight -- when all I had was a TV antenna and my PC was down (so I had no music) I'd use that to fall asleep.

/me is enlightened

Sadly, I have no idea what plays overnight on our local PBS affiliate. I turn on the radio for overnight noise because BBC World Service puts me to sleep like nothing.

Sad but true fact about my PBS watching: the two PBS affiliates in the Denver area used to run episodes of Sesame Street one day off the other (i.e., a day behind the other station ) and both started at a half hour point, so I'd tune in at 10 AM to get the later half of one day's show and the first half of the next day's show.

I find Antiques Roadshow far too interesting to be put to sleep by it. It is one of the few shows I miss seeing.

AR and History Detective...yep, that is how I spent my evening!
