But we're betting he'd enjoy Top Shot (Tuesday, 10/9c, History Channel) and Jump City: Seattle (Tuesday, 8/7c, G4), too. Last week, History premiered Season 2 of its direct hit Top Shot, which challenges two teams of marksmen and women to pepper targets using a variety of weapons, from bows and arrows to fully automatics. "The cool factor goes through the roof whenever you bring out a Prohibition Era Tommy gun," says host (and Survivor alum) Colby Donaldson. Tonight's contest: "The teams have to maintain composure and focus while paintballs are whizzing over their heads," he says.
