(Thursday, October 3rd, 2008) Remember when Friday was a night of do-it-yourself? Between Home and the DIY network, we could catch a number of shows that taught us how to do useful things.  Not anymore — now it’s just sit back and watch things be made in factories without learning the techniques.  We do get a new How It’s Made, and a new Sandhogs, which is better than nothing, we suppose.

All times are central.
