The series premiere of Biggest and Baddest is on National Geographic Wild at 8:00. Explorer/wildlife biologist Niall McCann seeks out the largest, fiercest animals in the world and follows up on legends or encounters with animals in conflict with humans.
The season finale of one of the most interesting shows on TV, Brain Games, is on the National Geographic Channel at 9:00. The show explores how the human brain works and how certain people (like magicians, pickpockets, etc.) use that to manipulate others. Fascinating.
Jerry Kolber, the executive producer of the show, gave us an exclusive interview where he discusses Brain Games and other shows that he has worked including Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and Only for God: Inside Hasidism as well as his thoughts on creating TV shows that provoke conversation around issues like religion, gay rights, the human brain and prison systems.
