tv2nite.jpg(Tuesday, August 1, 2006) Shark week continues on Discovery, so they’re a little short on the shows we’re used to watching.  Otherwise, it looks like a standard night on Speed, TLC, and RFDTV.

All times are central.


  • How It’s Made: Episode 14: Eyeglass Lenses, Granite, Potato Chips, Microprocessors (Discovery, 6 p.m.)
  • National Tractor Pulling (RFDTV, 6 p.m.)
  • How It’s Made: Episode 2: CDs, Mozzarella Cheese, Pantyhose, Fluorescent Tubes (Discovery, 6:30 p.m.)
  • Classic Tractor Fever (RFDTV, 6:30 p.m.)
  • Building the Ultimate: Some Assembly Required (Science Channel, 7 p.m.)
  • Trading Spaces: Oregon: Alsea Court (Discovery Home, 7 p.m.)
  • Pinks: Chevy vs. Dodge (Speed, 7:30 p.m.)
  • Overhaulin’: LeMama’s Boy (TLC, 9 p.m.)
  • Build or Bust: Mini Bike Builder (Speed, 11 p.m.) 
  • Overhaulin’: LeMama’s Boy (TLC, 11 p.m.)
  • Unique Whips: Tennis Star & Fabolous Car (Speed, midnight)

Our insomniac’s recommendation: Machinery of the Past on RFDTV at 1 a.m. or Build or Bust on Speed at 4 a.m.


One Response to TV Tonight: Standard Fare

  1. Nick says:

    HIM Ep 14, Microprocessors contains a howler: Calling flux a “sticky chemical” as though its intended use is as a glue when holding the parts together before soldering. While it does certainly function as a fixturing glue in this situation, that is hardly its primary function in the ensuing soldering process….
    Sometimes I wonder if they have a technical editor working on that show…
