PBS’ Manor House debuts tonight.
PBS series of people-living-in-houses- continues tonight with the debut of Manor House. Nineteen people, including a family of five and 14 staff members, are divided, literally, by class inside a 1905 Edwardian Britain mansion. Because they “were unhappy about the Spartan accommodations and exhausted by the workdays,” two “servants” quit the series, according to the Journal Sentinel. The six-episode series airs tonight, tomorrow, and Wednesday, with two episodes starting each night at 8 p.m. ET. Since this is PBS, though, make sure to check your local listings.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
