The History ChannelHistory Channel’s Monster Quest is going to be investigating ‘real’ Hobbits in an episode premiering on January 16th 10PM ET. I’m not sure Bilbo et al would take too kindly to being called apes, but here is the official episode description: “A MonsterQuest expedition will deploy researchers and the latest technology into the jungle, searching for evidence of a creature natives describe as half man, half ape.” Check your local listings for airings in your area.
