Out of the Wild moves to South America for its second (actually third) season

Out of the Wild, the fascinating and entertaining survival series, has been renewed for a third season, and it is leaving Alaska for South America.

The casting notice calls the show Out of the Wild 2, but that ignores its predecessor, The Alaska Experiment, which had a different format. Both series took place in Alaska with winter approaching, though, so this is its first location change.

The new season will be produced in October and November, and applications are due Aug. 26. The application asks for people who “have what it takes to live and thrive in nature’s most brutal environments” and want to “join a band of fellow explorers and trek through some of the harshest climates and roughest terrains in the world.”

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.
