History: The Interesting Bits

It's safe to say that never has there been so much history as there is now.

Most of it is a matter of opinion. Much of it is really hard to understand. Half of it is probably wrong.

And a lot of it, frankly, isn't very interesting.

So what's needed is a totally fresh, different, exciting look at history's Interesting Bits. History with the boring bits taken out.

This eight-episode, fast paced show uses animation, archive and recon to reveal the funny, disturbing, weird, but always interesting bits of history.

In the series premiere, "How to be President": We look at the men and women who've run and, in some cases, won the Oval Office.

We meet lawyers, war heroes and crooks, and discover which POTUS shut down a nuclear plant in meltdown and which was almost eaten.

What is the real cost of the top job and why have they all been men so far?

History: The Interesting Bits

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, All the Light We Cannot See is a limited series that follows the story of Marie-Laure, a blind French girl and her father, Daniel LeBlanc, who flee German-occupied Paris with a legendary diamond to keep it from falling into the hands of the Nazis.

Relentlessly pursued by a cruel Gestapo officer who seeks to possess the stone for his own selfish means, Marie-Laure and Daniel soon find refuge in St. Malo, where they take up residence with a reclusive uncle who transmits clandestine radio broadcasts as part of the resistance.

Yet here in this once-idyllic seaside city, Marie-Laure's path also collides inexorably with the unlikeliest of kindred spirits: Werner, a brilliant teenager enlisted by Hitler's regime to track down illegal broadcasts, who instead shares a secret connection to Marie-Laure as well as her faith in humanity and the possibility of hope.

Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner over the course of a decade, All the Light We Cannot See tells a story of the extraordinary power of human connection - a beacon of light that can lead us through even the darkest of times.

Ugliest House In America 4

Hosted by Retta, known for her roles in Parks and Recreation, the new season will showcase tours of 15 properties nominated by homeowners who believe their design-challenged home is among the worst in the country.

During the season, Retta will share her hot takes and reviews of each horrendous property, commenting on wacky layouts, clashing designs and severely outdated styles.

Based on its ugly appearance, poor functionality and surprising design choices, one house will be deemed the "ugliest house in America" by HGTV and the network will award its homeowners $150,000 renovation completed by Alison Victoria.

Throughout the new season, Retta will travel to five regions of the US to see the best of the worst and gleefully react to houses featuring all sorts of bad design, ranging from mural monstrosities and shellacked wood paneling to velvet wallpaper and garishly patterned wall-to-wall shag carpeting.

In the end, the home deemed "the ugliest" will be transformed from a beast into a beauty.

Unefa! 2

We all wish we had a rich aunt who left us a sizable family inheritance so we can get the financial boost we need to finally make ends meet - or simply level up and live comfortably for the rest of our lives.

This series follows the lives of South Africans who are surprised by the fact that they have an unclaimed inheritance.

The show's premise is created on the fact that every year many South Africans pass on, leaving their loved ones with the gift of an inheritance, but every year many South Africans miss their blessings and never receive that money.

This may be due to incorrect personal details (where their information was either wrongly logged or not updated) or the beneficiary is a minor at the time of death, resulting in payment where the money is held by the Guardian's Fund.

Others don't receive their funds for sneakier reasons, such as lack of transparency between family members.

The show traces the relationship between the family and the deceased, while sharing the beneficiary's healing process.

Each episode culminates with their reaction during the moment of truth when the big surprise is revealed: that they will be receiving an inheritance.

Unefa! is hosted by Motlatsi Mafatshe.

In the Season 2 premiere: Hope lost both her parents by the age of five. She had no one to turn to and slept with older men to survive.

Her dad's inheritance will help with her dream to become a teacher.

The Real Housewives of Orange County 17

Ready to take back her orange after she was last seen in a bush, Tamra Judge makes her triumphant return to the franchise to shake things up joining veteran Housewives Shannon Storms Beador, Heather Dubrow, Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson.

New housewife Jennifer Pedranti is introduced to the ladies through her friend Tamra and quickly finds her voice in the group.

No stranger to the franchise, RHOBH veteran Taylor Armstrong marks the first housewife to switch cities as she joins the OC ladies as a friend.

Coming up this season:

After a two-year break, Tamra Judge is back with a new perspective and is ready to repair a few broken friendships.

After almost 10 years in business, Tamra and Eddie close their beloved gym CUT Fitness.

Tamra comes in hot and her reconciliation with Shannon does not go as planned.

Tamra is holding everyone accountable, especially her friend Jennifer, but when the narrative doesn't add up, it leads to some explosive confrontations.

Shannon Storms Beador is trying to keep the positive energy around as she looks to mend her fractured friendship and rebuild trust with her former bestie Tamra.

Once Tamra and Shannon clear the air, it makes way for the Tres Amigas to reunite as the OG of the OC Vicki Gunvalson joins the fun for tequila and keg stands.

When the group brings up concerns about the status of her relationship with John Janssen, Shannon continuously reassures them everything's fine.

The spotlight on her relationship makes Shannon question who she can trust in the group.

As the whispers become louder, things quickly take a turn for the worse during a long weekend in Mexico and she struggles to keep her relationship afloat.

With her twins off to college on opposite coasts, Heather Dubrow embraces a new chapter of her life.

Heather is determined to dive back into her acting career and launch a new business venture, but she questions whether she can accomplish it all.

Planning for the future, Heather and Terry purchase a high-end getaway penthouse in one of the ritziest buildings of Los Angeles.

With the ladies, Heather lands herself in the middle of Tamra and Shannon's feud, but when they finally reconcile, she wonders where she fits in between their friendship.

Gina Kirschenheiter and Travis join forces in real estate, hoping to be a dynamic duo, but first she has to pass the exam and get her license.

When one of the ladies tells a story about infidelity, it sets Gina back emotionally and she is forced to deal with repressed emotion about her ex's affair.

She is informed that her style of friendship is not up to Heather's standards, but as Gina works to prove her loyalty, she feels continually shut down.

With Tamra back in the group, Gina feels it's complicating her bond with the women, and when she gets involved in the chatter about Shannon's relationship, her past comes back to haunt her.

With her husband Shane working as a full-time lawyer, Emily Simpson fulfills her dreams of being a stay-at-home mom as she supports Annabelle's modeling aspirations, while continuing to help the wrongly convicted as part of the California Innocence Project.

In a turn of events, Emily reconnects with Tamra, as the two develop a close friendship after working through their tumultuous past.

Never leaving room for unanswered questions, she seeks the truth from all her friends, but finds herself in hot water with Shannon and Heather when she shares her own opinions.

Brought into the group through Tamra, new Housewife and yoga studio owner Jennifer Pedranti is a mother of five with children ranging from 5 to 18.

A strong advocate for fostering children and animals, she recently adopted her youngest child Dominic.

She is currently navigating her recent split from her husband, Will, who runs her family business, as they share a home.

Her alleged affair with her now boyfriend and CUT Fitness member Ryan has been the subject of the gossip mill in town.

Her friendship with Tamra is put to the test, as she is forced to explain the rumours and confront difficult truths.

Taylor Armstrong moved to Orange County nearly 10 years ago and is brought into the circle after becoming fast friends with Tamra.

As Taylor pursues an acting career and is offered her first movie role, she seeks coaching and advice from Heather.

However, Taylor feels slighted when Heather dismisses her offer to be a part of the cast, causing a tidal wave of discussions with the group about Heather's character, and an epic showdown about IMDB credits.
