New season of ‘Antiques Roadshow’ returns Monday nights

“Antiques Roadshow” returns “reality” to “reality television.”

Part adventure, part history lesson and part treasure hunt, “Antiques Roadshow” is a 13-time Emmy Award-nominee and PBS’ most-watched ongoing series. In each hour-long episode, specialists from the country’s leading auction houses and independent dealers offer free appraisals of antiques and collectibles. “Antiques Roadshow” cameras capture tales of family heirlooms, flea market finds and items saved from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these items.
