This Week on TV – 5/5/13-5/11/13

Welcome to a new week of TV! We’re well into May Sweeps now, and you can tell because it’s a very busy week. Of course, we’re also closing right in on the end of the season, and it shows in the 21 season finales! Eek. There’ll be even more next week, unfortunately. šŸ™ But for now, let’s enjoy the great new TV on this week. (By the way, the saying is April showers bring May flowers… If that’s the case, what in the world brought about the snow I got all day and night yesterday?! Gah!)

Don’t forget to comment or Tweet @tvismypacifier to let us know what YOU are planning to watch this week!

Tonight is the series premiere of Monumental Mysteries on Travel Channel at 9/8c. Where did the term “flying saucer” originate? Who was an inspiration for Bram Stoker’s “Dracula?” Did John Wilkes Booth escape justice and live out his life in Texas? In this new series, history explorer and museum enthusiast Don Wildman uncovers some of America’s most intriguing events, greatest triumphs, well-known disasters, and even some notorious crimes that are linked to many of the nation’s monuments. These include iconic buildings, bridges, memorials, national parks, statues, sculptures and gravestones across the country. The show scours the United States for the nation’s history-rich monuments and unveils tales that are unknown to many Americans. These fascinating stories include why New York’s Ellis Island served as a beacon of hope for the world-famous Von Trapp family, why the hands of a huge clock on the island of Hawaii are forever frozen in time, and how a newlywed couple inexplicably vanished in Arizona’s breathtaking Grand Canyon.
