What to Watch 8/17-8/18


UFC on Fox Sports 1:  Sonnen vs. Shogun (Fox Sports 1, 8:00 PM, Saturday)

Stop what you are doing and read Andrew Riche’s column about sports networks.  Then watch this low end PPV quality card on free tv along with Callum’s live blog right here on Place to Be Nation.

the town

The Town (TNT, 10:15 PM, Saturday)

One of the more rewatchable movies of the past few years.  Something about robbing Fenway Park always brings a smile to my face.


Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Philadelphia Phillies (TBS, 1:35 PM, Sunday)

The Ryne Sandberg era has dawned upon us.  Lets see if he is able to prevent the Phillies from total collapse versus one of the hottest teams in the league.

brock vs. punk

SummerSlam (PPV, 7:30 PM, Sunday)

Be sure to watch RVD vs. Ambrose on the preshow.  You know PTBN will have you covered with reaction on what on paper could be a great show.

Pedro Martinez Don Zimmer Fight

New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox (ESPN, 8:00 PM, Sunday)

This series feels like the last stand for the Yankees against their biggest rival in enemy territory.

breaking bad

Breaking Bad (AMC, 9:00 PM, Sunday)

The title of this episode is “Buried.”  I have chillbumps.  If you aren’t watching, you are missing out.
