UK Big Brother chalks its logo next to 3,000-year-old Uffington White Horse.
Next to a more than 3,000-year-old, nearly 400-foot long marking on a hillside, the UK’s Big Brother production company chalked the show’s logo and then filmed it for use in the series. The chalk outline of the show’s “eye” logo appeared next to a British landmark known as Uffington White Horse, which has been around since the Bronze Age; its origins are unknown. (The BBC has a picture of the eye next to the horse.) The Observer reports the show paid £2,000 to the National Trust to chalk the land; Channel 4 says the chalk will be washed off by rain.

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.
