Tonight, Discovery seems to be airing a non-Shark Week themed show since “One Man Army” is airing at its usual time. I’ve checked the episode description and nowhere does it mention ANYTHING about sharks so that’s frustrating and confusing. They’ve managed to make episodes of “Mythbusters” and “Dirty Jobs” that were Shark Week themed so I don’t know why they can’t just do that for all shows that air during Shark Week. And since the same company owns TLC and Discovery channel maybe they could send a few sharks over to “Toddlers and Tiaras” to get these parents to have a little perspective. “What’s that? Your little girl doesn’t like it when you bleach her hair because it burns? That’s a shame. We’ve got someone to help you deal with those feelings. Actually, several someones. Or somethings. We call the big one Bitey.” Here’s your Wednesday night TV:

10:00pm: “Clean House” on Style. 10th season finale. This show has a lot in common with “Hoarders” but it’s far less depressing and more “sack up, ho” about the whole process of getting rid of your shit. I’m not sure how well either approach works in the long run because if you’ve ever seen real hoarding crazy up close and personal you know that you can throw out shit for days, get the house completely cleaned and in order and less than a month later you’ll come back to find it piled up with just as much shit. It’s one of those problems that only gets solved if the sufferer wants it to be solved. And usually, they don’t.
“Damages” on DirecTV
“Dance Moms” on Lifetime
“Deadliest Warrior” on Spike TV. This week’s show features U.S Army Rangers vs. North Korean Special Operations Forces. Tricky, though I’d go with people who come from a society where the population is not regularly reduced to eating bugs. I hear the people in the army and whatnot in North Korea do get fed properly, but malnutrition in early childhood years can play hell with many kinds of development.
