Today we visit with Rick Harrison, star of History Channel’s long-running hit series, Pawn Stars. With more than 600 episodes since 2009, Rick has taken viewers inside the pawn business from his Las Vegas shop, revealing some of the historic or just plain bizarre items they receive, while amassing a worldwide fanbase along the way. Now the Pawn Stars are hitting the road once again as Rick, his son Corey and Corey’s buddy Chumlee kick off a new season of Pawn Stars Do America. In each episode, the guys visit a new city – including Tampa, Dallas, Louisville, Boston, Minneapolis, Detroit, Phoenix and more – in search of rare collectible and historic items. https://www.history.com/shows/pawn-stars-do-america

According to a new poll, we’re getting a little tired of seemingly being asked to tip in unconventional situations. In a survey of 1,000 adults in the US, 3 in 4 respondents said they think the practice of tipping for service is simply getting out of control. 56% feel pressure to tip when the option pops up on a screen during cashless checkout. And 47% said that these days, they find themselves tipping for services they normally wouldn’t, because the screen told them to. What’s more, 3 in 5 said they’d be willing to pay more for their goods just so they never have to tip again!

There was “never” a moment in which “The Crown” was going to show the car crash that led to Princess Diana’s tragic death. In a new interview, showrunner and executive producer Peter Morgan said: “Oh, God, we were never going to show the crash. Never.” In fact, he admitted that he “dreaded writing Princess Diana into the series, and even considered avoiding her entirely.” The last season of “The Crown,” covering the years 1997-2005, will be split into 2 parts. The first half drops Nov. 16.

A car dealership in Australia has backpedaled after its $35 surcharge to pay in cash went viral, sparking outrage. A man named Peter was shocked to see the list of transaction fees at Sydney City MG dealership. The list, which he shared, included surcharges of 0.5 to 2% to pay with various types of credit cards. But what sparkplugged online backlash was the final surcharge – of $35, if the buyer wanted to pay in cash. Some noted that the maximum cash transaction allowed at the dealership was $3174, which works out to be a 1.1% surcharge – more than it would cost you to pay with a MasterCard debit card. The company says it will now absorb the cost.
