Think fishing is boring at worst, relaxing at best? Well, you may need to watch this clip from Animal Planet's "Top Hooker" (Sun. at 10:00 p.m.).

Jocelyn has a Stuart Smalley moment with the mirror
Do you remember "Saturday Night Live"'s Stuart Smalley character (played and invented by Al Franken)?

July 10 at 10:00 p.m.), Jocelyn talks to her mirror, works on her enunciation, complains about menopause, and bursts into tears. Is it crazy? Oh, yeah.
