Ryan might be the only one excited about this premier tonight, but AMERICAN PICKERS starts up again tonight!! He loves this show.

From 'Pawn Stars' to 'Pickers,' America's trash is TV's treasure

There's a lot of trash on TV these days.

Not just the normal fare. Trash TV, "mantiquing," goodwill-store hunting or whatever you may call it is quietly gaining momentum among viewers captivated by secondhand merchandise, garage-sale finds, forgotten memorabilia and relics from attic stashes.
