Russell Hantz’s A&E series delayed, moved to Saturdays

The debut of Flipped Off, Russell Hantz’s A&E series about house-flipping, has been delayed until later this month, and the show will now air on Saturday nights.

It was supposed to debut today, in the Monday at 10 p.m. timeslot usually held by Intervention, where A&E is instead airing a repeat of Beyond Scared Straight.

The show will debut April 28 at 9 p.m. ET, and be paired with another new series, Ramburg, about “a brawny group of hard-working, over-the-top Italian exterminators from Brooklyn who dress in camouflage.” On A&E’s web site, you can watch a trailer featuring Russell and his brother.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

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.
