'Buried Treasure'The Keno brothers wrapped the inaugural season of 'Buried Treasure' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) with a look at a rare classic car: A 1922 Mercer Raceabout. However, they were surprised by the reaction of the owner when he finds out how much someone would be willing to pay for it.

Particularly, because the Kenos brought in an antique cars dealer and he was ready to make an offer right then and there. When Joe, the car's owner, balked at $220,000, the dealer raised it to a quarter of a million dollars.

"I really don't think that's what I want," Joe said, later adding, "Not for that price."

Wife Looking to Prove a Painting's Not a Rembrandt on 'Buried Treasure' (VIDEO)

'Buried Treasure'One couple looked like they might have been looking for 'The Marriage Ref' rather than 'Buried Treasure' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX). This wife was bound and determined to prove once and for all that her husband was wasting money on paintings that weren't nearly what he thought they were.

"When the Keno brothers tell me that the Rembrandts are real, I'm gonna be riding back in style and JoAnn's gonna be riding back on her broom," the husband said.

But at the reveal, she got a taste of sweet victory when the bigger painting was confirmed to not be a Rembrandt, as the husband had hoped. He'd paid $3,000 for it. But before she could rub it in, the Keno brothers revealed that a smaller sketch he'd paid $400 for was, in fact, a Rembrandt, and was worth $20,000.

'Buried Treasure' premiereFor years, Leslie and Leigh Keno watched as priceless treasures were brought to them on 'Antiques Roadshow.' Now they're hitting the road looking for 'Buried Treasure' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) on a new reality series.

In the premiere, they looked at a violin potentially worth millions, a few Silver Age comic books and collectibles, and sifted through a hoard looking for family heirlooms. It was in the hoard that they found their most surprising discoveries.

Lily wanted the Kenos to come because she knew there were some valuable items in her mother's house, but even she had no idea what Liz had buried in there. In fact, Liz had no idea either. The Kenos uncovered five items from the mess, but that was enough to change their lives.

Fox Makes Changes to its Summer Schedule

Gordon RamsayGordon Ramsay fans will be delighted to know that soon they'll be getting back-to-back doses of the potty-mouthed British chef, Monday nights on Fox. And antiques fans can set a date with the Keno twins for the launch of their new show.

Following disappointing ratings for the Season 2 premiere of 'MasterChef' earlier this week, Fox execs have tweaked the summer schedule to give the cooking show a boost. It will now air before ratings powerhouse 'Hell's Kitchen,' which returns for its ninth season in July.

According to Deadline.com, Fox had originally planned to air 'MasterChef' Mondays and Tuesdays at 8PM ET, an hour earlier than last summer. But, after ratings plummeted a whopping 33 percent on Monday, and went up only 10 percent the following night, Fox is moving the series to the 9PM ET slot, which is where it aired last year behind 'Hell's Kitchen.'

The move on Monday will be made right away, with a 'MasterChef' rerun airing Monday June 13 at 8PM ET, leading into a new episode at 9PM ET. Come July, Fox hopes that 'Hell's Kitchen' viewers will stay with the network for a second helping of Ramsay.

The VoiceNBC is slotting 'The Voice' in a very high profile timeslot: post-Super Bowl on Sun., Feb. 5.

The network did not say whether the episode will be the premiere of Season 2 or just a regular episode.

"There is no better showcase on television than to follow the Super Bowl, and we believe 'The Voice' is deserving of such high-profile exposure," Bob Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement.

"The attention grabbing blind audition phase of 'The Voice' has mass appeal and will fittingly team up with the biggest sporting event of the year," he said.

Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will all be back as coaches next year.

My Name Is Earl: Buried Treasure

by Michael Sciannamea, posted Jan 12th 2007 12:20AM

my name is earl jason lee(S02E12) Ahhh, a return to Earl crossing something off his list and continuing his quest for karma. However, things were a little different this go-round, and it made for very interesting viewing.

After describing the premise of number 52 on his list, Earl takes us back to when he, Joy, and Randy stole the historic silverware from the Camden County Library/Museum and eventually decided to bury it until they could figure out a way to make money from it. We see Earl describe his methods of trying to get the $2,000 the silverware is worth, and his luck at not being caught after Dotty the Librarian made the money drop in the outdoor waste basket. In addition, we see an exploding bush and it looks like Earl escapes from being caught. He describes it as karma being mad at him.

The Dead Zone: Symmetry

The Dead Zone: Symmetry(S05E07) Finally, an episode worthy of the quality of The Dead Zone I have grown accustomed to! And okay, okay, it was a stand alone episode, and it didn't do anything to further the "theme" of the series (Stop Greg Stillson!), but you know what? It was the kind of episode that took full advantage of the wacky weirdness of the dead zone and its potential for really messing with Johnny's mind.
