Eventually. History's dragged Black Sails out for so long the series has literally become History now. 

I'm wondering what it's gonna be like for the couples on Saving Our Marriage when their work colleagues, family etc. see them on TV... talk about airing your dirty laundry.

Will their colleagues just give each other knowing looks or actually talk about seeing their issues? "Oh hi, yes, I saw your husband on TV last night - what a loser!" 

Alternatively no-one they know will see them because it's on SABC3.

Here's a vid. of the cool ventriloquist winner of America's Got Talent Season 12 if you missed it:
