Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 10

“My Name is Earl” (KOB-4 7 p.m.) “Earl” and “30 Rock” hit their season finales a tad prematurely thanks to the writers’ strike. On the plus side, we get summer reruns a whole three months early!

“Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” (VH1 8 p.m.) Now here’s a celebreality show that actually makes sense. Unfortunately, they couldn’t land any of the A-list addicts like Lindsay, Britney or Amy Winehouse.

Friday 11

“My Big Redneck Wedding” (CMT 10:30 p.m.) Shucks, bubba, I’ll bring the shotgun.

Saturday 12

“12 Sexiest Vegas Jobs” (E! 7 p.m.) You mean besides hooker? ’Cause I’m thinking there’s a lot of sex involved in that job.

Queen Sized (Lifetime 7 p.m.) Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky goes small screen as an overweight teen who becomes a local celebrity after she stands up to high school bullies.

Sunday 13

“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” (KASA-2 7 p.m.) It’s got Terminators and it was shot in New Mexico? Count me in.

Comanche Moon (KRQE-13 8 p.m.) Speaking of shot in New Mexico. CBS kicks off a three-night miniseries, the third (and one would presume final) installment in Larry McMurtry’s Lonesome Dove series. Good, old-fashioned cowboy action lensed right here in the Land of Enchantment.

“Adult Entertainment Expo ’08” (G4 8 p.m.) Wondering about the latest high-tech innovations in boobs and boob-related products? Wonder no more. G4 takes you on an exclusive two-hour exploration of the AEE in Las Vegas.

Monday 14

“Prison Break” (KASA-2 7 p.m.) Another season, another prison to break out of. ... I really wasn’t going to watch this one anymore, but then, you know, writers’ strike.

Martin Scorsese Presents: Val Lewton: The Man in the Shadows (TCM 6 p.m.) This two-hour documentary profiles stylish Hollywood producer Val Lewton, and then TCM brings home the point with a monster marathon of Lewton chillers (Cat People, I Walked with a Zombie, Leopard Man, The Seventh Victim, Curse of the Cat People, The Body Snatcher, Isle of the Dead, Bedlam)

Tuesday 15

“American Idol” (KASA-2 7 p.m.) “American Idol” enters its seventh season sitting on top of the world, or at least on top of a Writers Guild strike with no end in sight.

Wednesday 16

“The Feasty Boys Eat America” (Travel Channel 6 p.m.) The Feasty Boys are a couple of overweight food enthusiasts in baseball caps who roam the country, creating a cooking show for “the common man.” Their mantra is “the four Bs”: beer, bacon, butter and better not forget the cheese. Tonight, they’re devouring Hatch, N.M.

“Mythbusters” (Discovery 7 p.m.) The Mythbusters return for a sixth season, bringing an entire episode of “James Bond”-inspired myths with them.

“Reno 911” (Comedy Central 11:30 p.m.) CC’s comic cop show enters it fifth season of unseemly behavior.
