CET will premiere behind-the-scenes footage from Antiques Roadshow’s Cincinnati episode (taped at Duke Energy Convention Center on July 21, 2012 and aired April 1-15, 2013) at 8 p.m. Monday, June 3.

When it was announced in February 2012 that Antiques Roadshow would return to Cincinnati to tape another episode of the PBS show locally, the response was resounding. More than 37,000 people across the country registered for free tickets to the live taping July 21, 2012. Attendees are chosen at random.

The PBS appraisal show, a favorite among old people and stoners who refuse to pay for cable, travels to different cities with a team of staffers, appraisers and volunteers to meet with the thousands of locals and visitors who believe their junk, inheritances, yard sale finds and other antiques are worth a pretty penny — and some who just want to be on TV.

The recent Cincinnati episodes featured Rookwood pottery, Colonel Sanders’ suit, an 1846 map of the western United States and much more. This behind-the-scenes episode will show more of how an event of this magnitude is run so smoothly, but maybe you’ll also get a peek of your neighbor getting his creepy doll collection appraised!

Tune into CET at 8 p.m. Monday to watch.
