What to Watch: January 18

'The Buried Life' (10PM, MTV) series premiere
It's mid-January, and you're already wondering how you lost all that beginning-of-the-year ambition, right? This new reality series is the answer, as four Canadian dudes travel the country (in their trusty big purple bus, Penelope), tackling a list of 100 things they want to do before they die. Among the entries: lead a parade, ride a bull, be in a Hollywood movie, get on the cover of 'Rolling Stone,' pay off our parents' mortgages, be in a boxing match, play ball with Obama, host 'Saturday Night Live,' pay for someone's groceries, star a television show (check!) and, in the series opener, camp at the Playboy mansion. But the show, and the real-life project that began in 2006, isn't just about the fun, endearing guys' personal adventures; for every item they cross off their own list, they've vowed to help a stranger cross an item off their list, which, in the premiere, leads to a very welcome surprise for a very deserving group of California elementary school students. We'll 'fess up: the whole concept gives us a case of the warm fuzzies, and, more importantly, makes us want to get off the couch and do something.'The Buried Life' (10PM, MTV) series premiere
