Ed Slott’s Retirement Rescue 2014 (7:00 p.m.)
Congress has spoken and Ed Slott is here to help you understand what it means to you, your family and your retirement savings. The program is a powerful call-to-action for American consumers concerned about their retirement. Ed Slott defines the monumental fiscal problems facing Americans and provides a step-by-step solution to creating a plan of action. Ed Slott builds on the phenomenal success of his earlier public television programs with all new information but continues with the "Slott formula" of using humor, personal stories and detailed facts from the tax code to make his points.
My Music: Big Band Vocalist (8:30 p.m.)
This special looks back at the “crooners” and “canaries” of the 1940s, featuring the greatest vocalists of the period when they started their careers performing with orchestras and dance bands. Among the legendary artists and timeless hits included in the rare, vintage footage are Louis Armstrong, Perry Como, Doris Day, Helen Forest with the Harry James Orchestra, Peggy Lee with the Benny Goodman Orchestra, Johnny Mercer and Margaret Whiting, Jo Stafford and the Pied Pipers with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, and many more favorites from the World War II era. Nick Clooney and Peter Marshall host.
Healing ADD with Dr. Daniel Amen (10:30 p.m.)
ADD or ADHD is a national health crisis that continues to grow—yet it remains one of the most misunderstood and incorrectly treated illnesses today. Kids and adults are put on powerful stimulant medications in short office visits without any biological information, and the stories of these medications hurting children and adults are common and persistent. In this national public television program, psychiatrist Daniel Amen and his wife nurse Tana Amen take a completely new look at ADD and explain 7 unique types based on the extensive brain imaging work of the Amen Clinics on tens of thousands of ADD patients.
