We know what boys want, and we know what guys like. And it's not just Megan Fox.
No, there's also hanging out with your boys, rooting around in places you shouldn't be and blowing up stuff just because you can. And if you can't do that in your real life every day, you can get vicarious pleasure through your television.
Of course you have the obvious candidates like Mythbusters, which skews 69 percent male, while Dirty Jobs audience is 61 percent. But there's few hidden cable shows and even some dramas that those having a Y chromosome can't resist:
American Pickers, 9 p.m. Monday on The History Channel: No, this has nothing to do with exploring your inner nostrils, although the journey might be just as gross. Mike hits the road with picking partner Frank, sometimes calling ahead but more often just popping in homes oozing junk. The hoarders of America are their targets. The duo bargains for old signs, bottles and jukeboxes, all while climbing over some of the best hidden treasures ever. Like a modern day Indiana Jones, Mike loves nothing better than diving into what others might consider dumpster fodder, and ends up retrieving some real financial finds.
Burn Notice, 9 p.m. Thursday USA: No one is cooler than burned spy Michael, former Navy Seal Sam and trigger lady Fiona. Everyone on this show has a hip factor that's off the chart, and every guy would like a girlfriend like deadly sexy Fee. Every week something gets blown up in a spectacular fashion in this new Millennium MacGyver that combines cool gadgets and hot Miami times.
Dexter September on Showtime: Dirty Harry did it with magnum force, while Dexter likes to slice and dice his victims, taking his time making criminals pay for their bad decisions. He's a serial killer who channels his deviant behavior into a force for good in a vengeful sort of way. But now that he's a widower with a baby to take care of, how is he going to make the most of his late-night activities?
Dirty Jobs, 9 p.m. Tuesday on The Discovery Channel: Laughing at a guy for picking up owl vomit, getting savaged by a fish or a camel and fulfilling some of the stinkiest jobs on the planet just never gets old. Mike Rowe has made his career on doing disgusting jobs. Fart jokes? Oh, yeah. Poo talk? You bet. It's one big locker room.
Entourage, 10:30 p.m. Sunday (new season starts June 27) HBO: Slip right past the velvet rope and into the fantasy world of hot movie star Vinnie and his crew as they navigate through a world of sexy women, big money and even bigger egos. This season goes for the thrill as Vinnie overcompensates after experiencing a near-death movie stunt. But hot damn, it's a great crash.
Ice Road Truckers, 9 p.m. Sunday on The History Channel: What guy doesn't like trucks? Here you get to watch men play with their trucks in Alaska snow, where the roads are made of frozen water. The camera crew loves those underwater shots looking up at the ice veneer where the trucks travel. It's dangerous work, but perhaps not as deadly when you have a whole film crew there to bail your frozen backside out. Still, guys stare transfixed at the tube to see if these truckers can navigate icy roads to get their loads in on time.
Mythbusters, Wednesday at 9 p.m. on The Discovery Channel: You can't have a list of guy friendly viewing without including the masters. Jamie, Adam and their nerd herd don't just blow stuff up, they also use science to insure bragging rights after proving, or disproving, myths. Can you really polish a turd, or swim as fast in syrup as you can in water? This is every boy's dream job.
Pawn Stars, Monday 10 p.m. The History Channel: So think of this as Antiques Roadshow with guys who look like they are on the lam from the mob. There's no sympathy for guy hocking his valuables, obviously needing some quick cash. The Pawn boys drive a hard bargain in Vegas, a place where riches or poverty can be decided by the roll of the dice or the spin of a wheel. But you've got to have some money to put down, and that's where the three generations of pawn brokers come into play, with odd employee Chumlee rounding out the dicey group.
Sons of Anarchy, starts early Sept. on FX: Get on the bike bitch. SOA's nothing but a testosterone charged ride. These Harley-riding outlaws mete out their own brand of justice. The men of mayhem don't let laws get in their way as they rule the town of Charming, Ca. and the women more than hold their own in the bad ass department. Even going to med school can't stop hometown girl Maggie from being drawn to bad boy Jax. And Katey Segal's the momma you really don't want to mess with. Still, it's a man's world complete with the ultimate man cave hangout.
Wind Tunnel with Dave Despain, 6 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. ET on Speed Channel: Gearheads unite. Here's the spot to hear all about the top stories in motor sports. More like a radio talk show than a program, Despain allows viewers to call in (866-WTUNNEL) or email their questions in about the week in sports. Get your motor rolling on this chat show featuring race car drivers and even a few motorcycle riders tossed in the mix.
