Just a couple of programming notes to pass along:

GROWTH: Animal Planet announced this week that its series "Treehouse Masters" will grow by an episode, with an extra airing this month.

"In this special episode, Pete Nelson and his team of carpenters, riggers and builders gather together at his Treehouse Point to build elements of a back-to-basic child’s treehouse for a very close-knit family with special needs children," the statement said of the episode to air at 9 p.m. on Friday, July 26.

The show will feature Laura and Tony Hernandez who and have their hands full raising four kids under the age of 7.  An occupational therapist who works with two of their children suggested a climbing structure to help develop motor skills and a place to focus their energy.

CONCERT: The band Blues Traveler will be featured on Fox News Channel’s summer concert series Friday morning on "Fox and Friends."

Best known for hits like "Run-Around" and "Hook," the band will talk about its latest tour and perform a few songs at 7 a.m.
