Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth


Drawn Together” (Comedy Central 11:30 p.m.) CC’s rude-as-hell reality cartoon does the season finale thing with tonight’s “American Idol Parody Clip Show.”

Friday 16

50 Greatest TV Icons” (TV Land 7 p.m.) Sure, sure: Milton Berle, Andy Griffith, Walter Cronkite, Jerry Seinfeld. Who can argue with those? Me, I’m hoping for a royal rumble between Kermit the Frog and ALF for top puppet.

The Kentucky Kid” (MTV 11 p.m.) Damn it! Somebody over at MTV spun the “You Get a Reality Show” wheel and I lost out again. This new one goes to Nicky Hayden, who’s apparently some motorcycle racer competing in the MotoGP World Championship.

Saturday 17

PU-239 (HBO 9 p.m.) Way to come up with a title, HBO guys. In case you’re wondering, it refers to a radioactive isotope. This made-for-TV thriller concerns a Russian nuclear power plant worker dying of radiation poisoning (Paddy Considine, The Bourne Ultimatum) who decides to hijack some nuclear material in order to provide for his family. ... And I worry about stealing copy paper from work.

More of Me (Lifetime 7 p.m.) Kudos to Lifetime for expanding its castlist beyond the standard Meredith Baxter Birney/Tori Spelling mindset with the hiring of ex-“SNL”er Molly Shannon. That said, this flick about a harried housewife who splits herself in three in order to get all her work done looks mighty strained.

Sunday 18

2007 American Music Awards” (KOAT-7 7 p.m.) If you’re starved for Jimmy Kimmel--he got booted off late-night thanks to the writers’ strike--you can get your fix with tonight’s gig hosting the AMAs.

Kenny vs. Spenny” (Comedy Central 12:30 a.m.) Canadian roommates/competitors return for another gut-busting season of one-upsmanship. At least this time they’re on a real network (CBC and The Game Show Network don’t count.) In tonight’s timeslot premiere, the boys battle to see who can eat the most meat in a week.

Monday 19

I Am An Animal: The Story of Ingrid Newkirk and PETA (HBO 9 p.m.) Right about now, Ingrid Newkirk is probably wondering how many animals died just to bring you this documentary about her. ... Plus, I don’t think she’s too happy about that “Kenny vs. Spenny” thing.

Ellen’s Really Big Show” (TBS 7 p.m.) Ellen DeGeneres in primetime. Start your dancing now.

VIBE Awards Special” (VH1 8 p.m.) Oh, there will be plenty more award shows to come, people. With the writers on strike, networks are going to be broadcasting every single award show they can get their mitts on.

Tuesday 20

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” (KOAT-7 7 p.m.) Because it’s a holiday law.

Frank TV” (TBS 9 p.m.) Frank Caliendo is an impressionist. He does a mean Bill Clinton. Now he’s got his own TV show. Good for him.

Wednesday 21

Phenomenon” (KOB-4 7 p.m.) Who will be the next great American fake psychic? Apparently, we get to find out tonight.
