Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 29

“Zixx” (Cartoon Network 8:30 p.m.) CN gives viewers a sneak peek at one of its new Saturday morning lineup series (debuting January 14). This Canadian series features a blend of live-action and CGI and tells the story of a tough space chick who crash-lands on Earth and joins forces with some normal teenagers to fight intergalactic bad guys.

Friday 30

“The eBay Effect: Inside a Worldwide Obsession” (CNBC 6 p.m.) I was gonna look up a description of this show online, but I got distracted bidding on a 23-inch Godzilla Shogun Warrior figure from the mid-'70s.

Saturday 31

See “Idiot Box” Above.

Sunday 1

“My Shakespeare” (KNME-5 7:30 p.m.) This behind-the-scenes doc finds filmmaker Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet) overseeing an amateur production of Shakespeare's classic play. Without Leonardo DiCaprio, of course.

Surrender Dorothy (KRQE-13 8 p.m.) Meg Wolitzer's bestselling novel comes to life as a tear-jerking TV movie. Diane Keaton stars as a mother devastated by the loss of her daughter. She retreats to the summer home she often shared with her daughter and overcomes her grief with the help of some friends. ... I don't know about you, but I feel better already.

“Flavor of Love” (VH1 8 p.m.) Remember “Strange Love,” that uncomfortable but addictive spin-off of “Surreal World” where weird rapper Flavor Flav romanced crazy actress Brigitte Nielsen? Well, now VH1 has come up with another spin-off. This one's a dating show with Flavor Flav romancing a bevy of beauties. It's basically “The Bachelor” but creepier. ... Way, way creepier.

“In Justice” (KOAT-7 9 p.m.) This new ABC series features Kyle McLachlan as a ... wait, lemme flip the magical two-sided coin of TV drama development ... a lawyer. Whew! For a second there, I thought he was gonna be a doctor.

Monday 2

“Wildfire” (ABC Family 7 p.m.) Even though it's shot in New Mexico, I'm torn by this series. I like the sexy teenage girls, but I'm not so much into the horses. Oh well, the new season starts tonight.

“Roller Girls” (A&E 8 p.m.) It was only a matter of time. A&E's new docu-reality series follows a fledgling women's roller derby team.

Tuesday 3

“Scrubs” (KOB-4 7 p.m.) NBC's finest sitcom finally returns at midseason, but feels awfully lonely now that fellow sitcoms “My Name is Earl” and “The Office” have vacated to Thursday nights.

Wednesday 4

“The Biggest Loser: Special Edition” (KOB-4 7 p.m.) If you can't wait until the season premiere of “The Biggest Loser” ... Well, if you can't wait until the season premier of “The Biggest Loser,” you're just sad. But it's really not for me to judge. To tide you over, here's a two-hour special pitting two families against one another. Whichever loses the most total weight wins $50,000. Personally, I feel it would be more exciting if the families only had two hours in which to lose the weight. Now that I'd watch.


Tom Joad returns to his home after a jail sentence to find his family kicked out of their farm due to foreclosure. A film series in partnership with the Albuquerque Museum's Route 66 exhibit.
