Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 26

30 Rock” (NBC 8 p.m.) The cast and crew of NBC’s increasingly funny but only mediocre-rated show have a little fun tweaking their own precarious position with tonight’s season finale. Seems the cast and crew of the “sketch comedy show within a sitcom” are in a panic when their ratings-challenged series gets put on hiatus.

Friday 27

The 100 Biggest Weather Moments” (TWC 7 p.m.) I can understand why the programming-starved Weather Channel would resort to airing such an exciting countdown show. (Fingers crossed that Hurricane Hugo cracks the top 10!) But why is Harry Connick, Jr. hosting?

Faster Pussycat Kill Kill!/Mudhoney (TCM 12:30 a.m./2 a.m.) Now we’re talking entertainment! TCM rolls with a late-night double-feature of director Russ Meyer’s finest ’60s-era exploitation flicks. They just don’t build ’em like Tura Satana and Lorna Maitland anymore.

Saturday 28

Lake Placid 2 (Sci-Fi 7 p.m.) If ever a film was screaming for a sequel, it’s 1999’s Lake Placid. I always wondered what happened to that giant crocodile.

The Adventures of Robin Hood (TCM 6 p.m.) It’s an entire night of swashbuckling in Sherwood Forest. TCM fires the perfect opening salvo with 1938’s The Adventures of Robin Hood starring Errol Flynn. At 8 p.m., it’s 1961’s The Sword of Sherwood Forest starring Richard Greene. At 9:30 p.m., it’s 1946’s The Bandit of Sherwood Forest starring Cornel Wilde. The night closes out at 11 p.m. with 1950’s Rogues of Sherwood Forest starring John Derek (in his pre-Ursula, Linda and Bo days).

Sunday 29

King of the Hill” (KASA-2 6:30 p.m.) Mike Judge’s refreshingly snark-free toon returns from its umpteenth undeserved hiatus with a new ep in which Hank becomes addicted to violent videogames.

Monday 30

Cities of the Underworld” (History 7 p.m.) Tonight’s episode focuses on Hitler’s secret underground lair, built under the sprawling streets of Berlin. ... If there’s one thing Nazis knew, it was how to build a bunker.

Tuesday 1

America’s Trashiest Weddings” (KASY-50 7 p.m.) Welcome to the big time, MyNet—producing disposable reality TV filled with lots of cheap home video and aimed at the lowest possible common denominator.

“Arm Wrestling: Super Heavyweights” (ESPN2 8 p.m.) Of course, after your cousin/wife watches “America’s Trashiest Weddings,” you, good sir, can pop open a Schlitz and relax with super heavyweight arm wrestling live from Rising Sun, Ind. ... To paraphrase John Mellencamp, ain’t that America?

Wednesday 2

The Wild One (TCM 7:30 p.m.) Turner Classic continues its salute to Marlon Brando with one of his most iconic roles, that of leather-clad rebel Johnny Strabler. Stay tuned afterward for a rerun of the brand-new documentary Brando, featuring lots of crazy on-the-set dish from friends and costars.
