The Numbers Game debuts on Nat Geo TV tonight at 9:30p and you don’t want to miss the show that will blow you away.
Tonight’s episode is what makes a hero? Did you know that someone who volunteers an hour a week is more likely to help someone in need than someone who doesn’t? If a person fell at a restaurant which patron would help them first, someone dining solo or in a group? Then next week they look in to why we can so easily be suckered. It is a little tips that you will get from this episode that will help you not get suckered again.
I like a show that makes learning fun and that is exactly what The Numbers Game does every week on Nat Geo at 9:30p. And if you want science to be fun, then watch None of the Above at 9p.
Then at 10p turn the dial over the TruTV for The Safecrackers. Phil Crawford, one of America’s leading safecrackers, and his best buddy, Blaze, travel the country and open safes and the likes that haven’t been opened in decades. You never know what is inside one until you open it. Will it be gold, money or smoking pipes? You will just have to tune into find out.
Tonight at 8p EST/5p PST National Geographic goes where it has never gone before, it is going Live From Space via the International Space Station.
For two hours will be given a tour of ISS from the astronauts (Flight Engineers US’s Rick Mastracchio and Japan’s Koichi Wakata) who currently call the place home and learn what they do in Space. We will also see Planet Earth from their vantage point. This is an unprecedented look of what it is like to be up there and what happens when you travel outside of our planet.
No matter how much you care about Space, this is a must watch special because this is not a place we get such an in-depth look at very often. So let NatGeo beam you up tonight at 8p and see what we look like from all the way up there.
Remember when you were little kid in school; and you learned about the planets in Science and you got all excited? Well that is the feeling you will get watching Cosmos on Fox and Nat Geo tonight and every Sunday at 9p. The 13 part series updates the 1980 Emmy winning PBS series that was hosted by Carl Sagan. Now nearly 35 years later we know so much more about worlds that aren’t our own and our own world, and Neil deGrasse Tyson will educate us something we have forgotten but want to remember.
So sit back and feel like a kid again and if you are kid enjoy learning again via Cosmos.
We love our tuna fish sandwiches and spicy tuna rolls, and tonight at 9p on National Geographic’s Wicked Tuna you will see how they catch the fish we love to eat.
In Gloucester, Ma several fisherman compete in a challenge to see who could catch the most and largest tunas. Sounds like it would be easy, but you will see how difficult it really is on the show. Each boat has their own technique to catch their prize and each one will work. Once they capture their tuna and weigh it, it is now time to bring it in to see how much it is worth per pound. If they get a really good catch, it is worth up to $20,000. So now you understand why they do this every day.
Wicked Tuna shows how competitive the world of fishing for tuna is, and who knew that is this way? You will enjoy watching just how competitive these fishermen get and they are wicked competitive.
Valentine’s Day is coming up on Friday and tonight at 9:30p on Nat Geo, Brain Games looks into love and attraction.
Brain Games is an interesting show that shows us how our brains can manipulate what we see and hear. Tonight we learn why we see certain people as more attractive than others and how to tell who really is a couple.
The show starts off by asking us to rank 5 people of one sex by attractiveness and then do the same with the opposite sex. Once that is done, you will find out why most people feel the same way as you do. The show also does a test to see what body type we are attracted to and you find out why.
Then we will see 4 couples where only one of them is actually married and the other 3 are actors. We will have to determine which is the real one. After you make your guess, the truth will be revealed and we will find out how to tell if a couple really is one. It is actually really cool what happens to couples the longer they stay together.
On that note, the next test is to figure out which couple is the closest to being on the same wavelength. Will it be the one on a blind date, the newlyweds who have been married for a year or the ones who’ve been married for 25 years. The answer will surprised you.
Just like the rest of the show that really makes you think about all your brain really does and how alike we all are because of that fact.
Tonight at 10p Killing Kennedy debuts on the National Geographic channel and you don’t want to miss this incredible two hour docudrama.
Killing Kennedy starts off during the last few months of 1969. During that time, John F Kennedy (Rob Lowe) wins his party’s vote to run for the President of the United States. Meanwhile at that same time Lee Harvey Oswald (Will Rothhaar) is renouncing his US citizenship and defecting to Russia. For the next 4 years their lives will go in different paths, but on November 22, 1963 their paths will collide and neither one of them will live to see December 1963.
What happens in those four years before they die is told in such a way that you will be glued to your television sets like people were almost 50 years ago to the day. You will learn the possible motive Oswald had for shooting President Kennedy and how this shooting could’ve possibly been stopped if more people had paid attention to the warning signs.
It isn’t only about these two men, it is also about the women that stood by their sides until that fateful day. Jacqueline Kennedy (Ginnifer Goodwin) is the supporting wife, who stands by her husband’s side and the man she loves is the most powerful man in the world. Marina Oswald (Michelle Trachtenberg) is a woman who lives in Russia, meets, and marries the wrong man. When he decides he wants to return to America, she is forced to leave her life behind to be with the man she married. She is alone America and stays with her husband because she is rightfully afraid of him. Something that is very evident one day in late November 1963.
While most movies that cover the Kennedy Assassination, only cover JFK’s story and/or the days leading up to and following his death. This telemovie covers the years leading up to his murder and the days following his last breath. Because of that, it is a different take on a story we know so well. I was so amazed by how intriguing this movie was that I could barely blink because I didn’t even want to miss a split second of it. Plus it will amaze you how perfectly Rob Lowe captures John F Kennedy’s essence, you will forget that is Lowe playing him and think that one of our greatest Presidents has come back to life. When it comes to Rothhaar, he was the bad man you loved on Last Resort, but in this role he makes you hate him as Oswald should be hated.
If you have any interest of what happened to JFK on November 22, 1963, then you must watch Killing Kennedy tonight. I am promise you will not be disappointed.
At 10p, Syfy takes it all off for Naked Vegas and then covers it back up with paint, body paint that is! The reality show documents the company called Naked Vegas that uses body paint to dress people up. On tonight’s season premiere they put lingerie on models and dress a bride and groom up as Zombies along with their wedding party. Imagine seeing a bride wearing body paint from head to toe walking down the aisle. It is as breathtaking as you expect it to be.
So tune in for a show that is unlike anything you can watch on television. In addition, it has the word naked in the title!
A few weeks ago the Government shut down for two weeks and several Doomsday Preppers have been prepping for that exact moment. Tonight at 9p on NatGeo, you will see one guy prep for just that type of scenario. He will force his daughter to learn what to do when America suffers from a financial collapse and he will wind up injuring her. So much so, they rush her to the doctor.
Prepping can be a dangerous thing, but it can also prepare you for the unforeseeable. Another family in Alaska is preparing for a Tsunami, but a wildfire interrupts their plans. Will all their hard work be for nothing or are they prepared unlike everyone else who is in the fire’s path?
You have to watch to find out and to learn some things you can do to prep for a disaster. Let’s be real, it can happen anywhere at any time because it was a year ago that Sandy struck the Northeast.
Tonight at 9p National Geographic Channel asks what would happen if all the power went out in the continental United States for 10 long grueling days. During the 2 hour movie you will follow several people as they document what happens throughout the US during the American Blackout.
At first things start off normally after the cyber attack, but as the days go on things get worse and worse. Stores are gouging people for necessities like water and food. Houses are burning down because there are too many of them and not enough firefighters. In fact there are so many people that are stuck in elevators that some of them will spend the whole time in there until the power is turned back on. The people that were neighborly at the beginning of the blackout, now believe in each man for himself. People will do anything to get what they need and that means kill for it.
As the time goes on camps are opened so people who have lost everything have a place to stay. It is also there where people who lost their loved ones will try to reconnect with them. Something that was not possible because the phones have been down.
When the power comes back things slowly return to normal, well as normal as they can after everything they went through.
The biggest take away from American Blackout is that we all need to prepare for it because a disaster can strike at any moment without us knowing. That and you will be sleeping with the lights on for a few nights.
On November 22, 1963 President John F Kennedy was assassinated, and 50 years later Rob Lowe will be playing 35th President in NatGeo’s Killing Kennedy. The first photo of him in the role of a lifetime was released today, and he looks the part. So much so that if his friend JFK, Jr. was alive today, he would be proud of Lowe.
The two hour movie, that’s set to air in November, is based on Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s book Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot.
If you have ever been somewhere and been wowed by a fish tank, then you are going to be floored by Fish Tanks Kings on Nat Geo Wild tonight at 9p. Each week the people from Living Color will convert objects like a rusty VW Bus into a gorgeous colorful aquarium. You will watch them make these aquatic homes from scratch. You will see them tear apart objects to fit in the aquariums and then build them back up to be able to hold one. But what is the point of creating one if you don’t have any fish to put inside of it. We will see them go into the waters near Fort Lauderdale and catch the new residence of these fish condos. And every aquarium needs coral, they make that there too.
If you think watching fish swim in an fish tank is cool, watching that aquarium be made is even cooler. So tune in each week to watch the second season of Fish Tank Kings on Nat Geo Wild!
