TV briefs: 'Don't Trust Andrew Mayne'

The Fresno BeeDecember 20, 2013 

Now you see him: A&E Network has pulled its newest series out of its hat. "Don't Trust Andrew Mayne," features magician Andrew Mayne, as he sets out to reinvent revenge.

From explosions to disappearing cars and sleight-of-hand, Andrew leaves unsuspecting men and women in disbelief. The series debuts at 10 p.m. Jan. 13.

Mayne has worked behind the scenes for some of the world's top magicians, and now it's his turn to show viewers what he's got on his mission to help people teach a lesson to those who've wronged them.

Giving them the slip: Maine is one of two states where eel fishing is legal, and it's the state's second largest revenue stream, bringing in approximately $40 million this past year alone.

But in this icy New England state, catching this sort of liquid gold is slippery and dangerously fast. That will be shown in "Cold River Cash" that debuts at 10 p.m. Jan. 2 on Animal Planet.

The eight-episode series follows the adventures and mishaps of three teams of fishermen who take to the rocky riverbanks of coastal Maine to vie for an elusive but lucrative catch — baby glass eels — which are tiny cellophane-looking creatures also known as elver eels.

The true meaning of ratings: ABC has extended its relationship with the "Peanuts" animated specials by Charles M. Schulz in a deal to run until 2020. The Emmy Award-winning specials began airing on the network in December 2001.

The "Peanuts" animated holiday specials include "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving," "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," and "A Charlie Brown Christmas," which first aired on television in 1965, and will celebrate its 50th anniversary soon.
