The New York Times‘s Eve Kahn gives a programming note with her item on the upcoming reality show based on antiques “pickers”:
For an hour a week on the History Channel, starting on Monday, befuddled old men with yards full of rusting artifacts will let two unfazed antiques dealers clamber around the wreckage. The dealers, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, usually take away three or four pieces per visit for resale at their store, Antique Archaeology, in LeClaire, Iowa. This 10-episode reality show, “American Pickers,” will document their inventory-building trips to 60 sites in 10 states.
