Tuesday TV: Nicolas Cage on Cussing

Do we need Nic Cage to tell us about cussing? Apparently so, with the new six episode series “History of Swear Words” (Netflix, streaming) in which there is etymology from experts and wisecracks from comics that include Nikki Glaser, Sarah Silverman, Nick Offerman and Isiah Whitlock Jr., whose chosen word I can easily guess.

Swearing may well be a result of Election Night in America (CNN, 6 p.m.), focusing exclusively on the Senate runoffs in Georgia. 

Public television offers a crowd sourced American confessional that sounds an awful lot like public radio’s StoryCorps, “American Portrait” (PBS, 9 p.m.). The first episode centers around dreams. 

From South of the border comes the third season of the failed baking competition variant, “Nailed It! Mexico” (Netflix, streaming). 

He’s only got a half dozen shows with his name in the title, so how about another one in a two hour special, “Gordon Ramsay’s American Road Trip” (Fox, 8 p.m.), in which he accompanies a couple of pals across the country, tasting local cuisine along the way.
