Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 5

“Dancing With the Stars 2” (KOB-4 7 p.m.) Brand new year, same old crap.

“Four Kings” (KOB-4 7:30 p.m.) NBC's newly revamped Thursday night lineup adds one newcomer to the mix, this New York City-set sitcom from the producers of “Will & Grace.” Seth Green and some other guys play a quartet of best friends who move into a fabulously large and ridiculously inexpensive apartment in Manhattan. Yes, it's another blatant attempt to clone “Friends,” but it does have Seth Green, who's funny even in the worst of circumstances.

Friday 6

“The Book of Daniel” (KOB-4 8 p.m.) This new NBC drama/comedy has been controversial, at least among those who still like to pretend priests are infallible. Aidan Quinn plays Daniel, a troubled Episcopalian priest who's trying to raise a family and battle an addiction to painkillers, who keeps having pesky visions of Jesus. It's all pretty old hat if you've been watching the last couple seasons of “Rescue Me,” but it's fairly edgy for broadcast television.

“Battlestar Galactica” (Sci-Fi 8 p.m.) I love Sci-Fi so much for giving me a new season of “Battlestar Galactica” so soon that I've made it my New Year's resolution to stop insulting Sci-Fi Original movies.

Saturday 7

Caved In: Prehistoric Terror (Sci-Fi 7 p.m.) As a kid, looking forward to the far-flung year of 2006, I'm sure I expected to be watching alien boxing or at least jet-pack racing by now. Instead, I'm watching yet another CGI bug eat people on the Sci-Fi Channel. ... Damn. There goes my New Year's resolution.

“The Museum of the Moving Image Salutes Ron Howard” (Bravo 7 p.m.) I'm not saying Ron Howard shouldn't be saluted for directing films like Apollo 13 and Cinderella Man. I'm just saying somebody should rough him up in that parking lot afterwards for subjecting us to How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Sunday 8

“Miami Ink: Hawaii” (TLC 7 p.m.) In this one-off episode, the boys travel to Hawaii to study ancient Polynesian tattooing techniques.

Monday 9

“Emily's Reasons Why Not” (KOAT-7 8 p.m.) Heather Graham gives the sitcom world a shot as a successful young gal in the publishing biz who follows a set of self-imposed guidelines to personal success.

Tuesday 10

“32nd Annual People's Choice Awards” (KRQE-13 8 p.m.) There's a good reason not to let the people have a choice. When you let the rabble vote, you get things like Arnold Schwarzenegger as governor of California and four-time People's Choice Award-winner Tim Allen.

“The Shield” (FX 11 p.m.) This season, Michael Chiklis' nasty detective Vic goes head-to-head with a new lieutenant played by Forrest Whittaker.

Wednesday 11

“Lost: Revelation” (KOAT-7 7 p.m.) ABC finally kicks off the rest of the season with this hour-long recap. A new episode begins at 8 p.m.

“South Beach” (KASY-50 7 p.m.) This sexy new drama follows two working class pals from Brooklyn down to Miami, where they get jobs in an upscale beach hotel. It's like “The O.C.” crossed with “Las Vegas.”
