If you are looking for something to watch for entertainment, or a source for non fiction books, then I recommend checking out C-Span's Book TV.
These are programs that are discussions and talks about books on the weekends. They are live on C-Span 2 on weekends and holidays. And past shows are available at booktv.org
The shows can be very interesting or extremely bad. But you can find interesting new non-fiction books.
Some things I remember about some of the bad ones were:
-the woman who said, "the opportunity cost is not applicable in this case"
-the man who said, "a deficit is like when you want a Ferrari but can't afford one"
-the caller who said, "but you're too young to have that opinion"
Those are some of the stupid things that I've heard.
They are also some excellent authors on. I first heard about Burt Folsom (in my blog list) when he gave a talk on one of his books. His writing and speeches are very good, if a bit too simple, on history and economics.
Another person I heard of thanks to Book TV is Kevin Williamson, whose infrequently posted on blog Exchequer is in my blogroll. It often goes weeks without a new post and yet it remains on my blogroll; there's a reason for that.
Some of the speakers write better than they speak and some speak better than they write. And the programs are usually interesting.
