Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 27

“Modern Marvels: Bathroom Tech” (History 8 p.m.) Watch this educational history of bathrooms and you’ll never take the humble urinal cake for granted again.

Friday 28

“33rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” (KOAT-7 7 p.m.) Yeah, best to get this out of the way before May Sweeps. Susan Lucci just doesn’t bring in the screaming fans like she used to.

Saturday 29

Landslide (Hallmark 7 p.m.) Because all the “good” disasters were already taken.

“Ivana Young Man” (Oxygen 8 p.m.) Yup, Ivana Trump follows in the skanky footsteps of Jerry Hall, trolling for boy toys on a reality show.

Sunday 30

Jesse Stone: Death in Paradise (KRQE-13 8 p.m.) Tom Selleck (“Magnum P.I.”) returns as Robert B. Parker’s small-town sheriff in yet another made-for-TV mystery. It’s just not the same solving crimes without T.C.

Monday 1

“Colores!” (KNME-5 9 p.m.) This episode of the locally produced docu-series is “Sleeping Monsters, Sacred Fires: Volcanos of New Mexico.” Check out our state’s long history with craters, cinder cones, lava flows and volcanos. Will they erupt anytime soon? Rio Rancho had better hope not.

“Coffins, Crypts and Corpses” (History 9 p.m.) See how other cultures treat their dead. ... With rubber gloves, I hope.

Tuesday 2

“Dynasty Reunion: Catfights and Caviar” (KRQE-13 9 p.m.) Joan Collins, Linda Evans and John Forsythe cram their wrinkles onto a soundstage and reminisce about the time when they all had jobs.

“Haunted Spooks” (TCM 9:30 p.m.) TCM closes out its month-long tribute to comic genius Harold Lloyd with this classic short. While posing for a publicity shot for this film, Lloyd lit a prop bomb with a cigarette. The “fake” bomb blew off three of his fingers. He slapped on a prosthetic glove and kept on doing his own stunts. Take that, Jackie Chan!

“Thief” (FX 11 p.m.) The final episode of the six-ep series wraps up in explosive fashion. And, since it doesn’t have a second season (as far as we know), pretty much anybody could die.

Wednesday 3

“Stardust: The Bette Davis Story” (TCM 6 p.m.) TCM unveils another of their patented star biographies. This intimate look at superstar Bette Davis is followed by one of her most famous films, 1939’s Dark Victory.
