Set Your TiVo

It isn't often that there's a TV show about astronomy that doesn't deal with awe-sum topics like black holes or our imminent death by asteroids. Finally, something different. I'll be tuning into the Travel Channel on Tuesday evening to see John Ratzenberger's Made in America (9 p.m. EDT) — a show that I've never watched — which will have a segment about Astro-Physics Inc., makers of premium telescopes and other equipment (and sellers of embroidered knit caps). I'm not sure if "Cliff Clavin" will be taking the tour, but if so, I'm sure it will be much better than watching him dance. The show will also feature segments on companies that make Tylenol and refrigerators. C'mon, you weren't really going to watch American Idol were you?
