‘Antiques Roadshow’ To Go All Mainstream With ‘Buried Treasure’

If there can be one reality show each for meter maids and storage unit intruders, then far be it for me to say that there can’t be two shows about antique appraisals. The hosts of “Antiques Roadshow,” twin brothers Leigh and Leslie Keno, have decided to make the leap from that penny-ante PBS to the big leagues, as Fox picks up “Buried Treasures,” which is pretty much the same show, only…well, it’s pretty much the same show, only with higher production values because it’s gonna be on Fox, a network whose production budgets aren’t driven by tote bag sales.

In keeping with the precursor’s premise,”Buried Treasure” will focus on the appraisal of and stories behind items found by average Americans hoping to strike it rich. Maybe I should see if these mounted heads of “Glee” cast members are worth trying to sell.
