TV Junkie: Patti Smith, Mt. Everest, Explosions

We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

It's a slow week for TV--yet dramatic!--but LAist's TV Junkie Tom Lewis still has some picks, which he listed on Monday's week round-up. Two shows are recommended: "Everest: Beyond the Limit" on Discovery at 9 p.m. and "The Imploders" on TLC at 10 p.m. Also, contributor Anjali Taneja recommends "Dream of Life," the documentary about rock legend Patti Smith (it's her Birthday today, by the way).
