There are a million TV channels out there these days, so when summertime comes around, we really have time to explore the vast world of random television programming. While we dig big shows like True Blood and So You Think You Can Dance, it's the more quirky, niche shows that really have us hooked this season, even if their names may garner blank stares from most folks when when we mention them. Below are some shows that may be off your radar but are worth checking out.
Despite its success in Britain, I really didn't think I was going to like Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution when I first heard about it. Not only did it have the potential to be pretentious and boring, but I also feared that Oliver would pull a Dr. Drew on us and make this show all about him and his ego. However, after giving Revolution a chance, I was wonderfully surprised at how much I enjoyed watching Oliver's plight. And after a week of pondering, I've finally figured why this show works as well as it does: It's a perfect mix of some of our guiltiest pleasures.
