I'm running behind, as usual, on this week's TV Guide. I try to post these during the week they cover (I don't know why I make up these rules), so I'm coming in just under the wire for the week. This week's cover begs the question, "Who the heck is Rod Arrants?"

That's all for this week. Tune in next time.
