When it comes to prime time viewing with the kids, Time TV critic James Poniewozik finds himself tuning in mostly to reality shows. While admitting unscripted programs vary greatly in quality — as do their scripted counterparts — Poniewozik defends the reality genre in his column, “Why Reality TV Is the New Family TV.”

The days of cumbersome multi-speaker home theaters may be numbered, thanks to soundbars. A soundbar is a slender collection of speakers in a single housing that connects directly to the TV. Soundbars have been around for a while, but recent offerings are cheaper, more powerful and can connect to mobile devices for streaming music. USA Today explains.
The Soundbar Review Center offers additional purchasing advice.

Get your science on by tuning in to Discovery Channel tonight. Starting at 7 p.m. (CT) you can cheer on competing scientists and inventors with a new episode of “The Big Brain Theory: Pure Genius,” followed by “Outrageous Acts of Science.” Then stay put for a new episode of “MythBusters.”
On “Big Brain Theory,” competitors take on an Olympian challenge: design a robot that can tackle three athletic events.
“Outrageous Acts of Science” takes science to the streets, as amateur and professional scientists conduct experiments and post their exploits online, competing with other backyard scientists to go bigger and bolder.
“MythBusters” burns rubber at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway testing racing myths.
Discovery Channel is available to all Suddenlink customers who have what is commonly known as Expanded Basic TV service.

Action thrillers “Parker” and “The Last Stand” are now available on Suddenlink Video on Demand (VOD).
“Parker” is a thief who lives by a code of integrity. He believes that there must be order in his profession. If that order is broken, or if he’s crossed, he’ll go to the ends of the earth to make it right. Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez star.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Forest Whitaker star in “The Last Stand,” the story of a small border-town sheriff who becomes the center of attention when a drug lord escapes the FBI and heads toward Mexico, straight through his territory.
Where Suddenlink VOD is available, check out these and other titles by going to Channel 1. A Suddenlink digital receiver is required to access the VOD menu.
