Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 21

“Most Unique McDonald’s” (Travel 7 p.m.) Are you like me? Do you dream one day of winning the lottery and traveling the world, visiting the most unique McDonald’s restaurants in all of creation and eating Big Macs until you swell up and die? We’ll here’s an opportunity to plan your trip.

Friday 22

“BET Honors” (BET 7 p.m.) Black History Month continues with more people of color receiving more awards. Tonight, it’s Rep. Maxine Waters, Richard D. Parsons, Cornel West, Janice Bryant Howroyd and poor woman’s Oprah Winfrey, Tyra Banks.

“Amne$ia” (KOB-4 8 p.m.) Comedian Dennis Miller, long ago banished from the realm of “Anything Remotely Funny,” is reduced to hosting a lame TV gameshow. Contestants win money if they can answer questions based on their own life history. Miller wins money if he can resist calling Democrats “America-hating cowards” for an hour.

“Fight Quest” (Bravo 8 p.m.) The “Fight Quest” boys travel to Israel to prove that the Jews can kick your ass. ... The ones that know Krav Maga, anyway.

Saturday 23

“Independent Spirit Awards” (AMC 8 p.m.) Before the Academy Awards get going, the independent film industry gets to congratulate itself. Amazingly, a lot of these indies (Juno, I’m Not There, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, The Savages) are also nominated for Oscars. As a bonus, Rainn Wilson from “The Office” serves as master of ceremonies.

Joe Lewis: America’s Hero ... Betrayed (HBO 10 p.m.) This documentary shows how “The Bronx Bomber” rose to fame during the Great Depression, eventually becoming an American hero when he defeated Nazi icon Max Schmeling in 1938.

Sunday 24

“2008 Academy Awards Red Carpet Special” (KOAT-7 6 p.m.) Watch the dresses starting at 6, then stick around for the awards at 6:30 p.m. Jon Stewart hosts. And there will be writers.

Monday 25

A Raisin in the Sun (KOAT-7 7 p.m.) Sean (“No More Puffy”) Combs, Phylicia Rashad, Saana Lathan and John Stamos (John Stamos?) star in this adaptation of Lorraine Hansberry’s long celebrated stageplay about a widow and her three sons trying to decide how to spend a large insurance check.

Tuesday 26

“quarterlife” (KOB-4 9 p.m.) I was hoping with the writers strike over, it wouldn’t come to this. But here we have the network TV premiere of this semi-popular Internet series about six creative twentysomethings who live their lives and then blog about it. Now on your TV screen instead of your computer screen.

Wednesday 27

“Project Runway” (Bravo 8 p.m.) Bryant Park, baby! Who will be crowned the winner of this season’s high-fashion challenge? You won’t find out tonight, because producers have stretched this into part one of a two-part finale.
