Deals from the Darkside
Tonight Syfy will air two original episodes of Deals from the Darkside, a 13-episode reality series featuring eccentric relic collector Steve Santini, who travels the world looking for “undeniably supernatural” antiques—like the Titanic deck chair we'll apparently see in the first of tonight's two episodes.

Everyone has an idea or two as to what the internet is made of. Some would say wires or tubes, while others may say lasers or babies. But we all know they're all wrong because the internet is truly made of CATS! If you find humor in funny pictures animals with silly captions, perhaps you’ll dig LOLwork a new reality series which goes behind the scenes of the Cheezeburger Network, home to popular internet meme sites including the one that started it all (at least as far as LOLcats are concerned), "I Can Haz Cheezeburger."
