Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 15

“The Office” (KOB-4 8 p.m.) NBC’s hit comedy signs off for the season with a two-part finale, which appears to send poor, bedraggled human resources drone Toby packing. On the upside? We get a new HR person in the form of Amy Ryan.

Friday 16

“Mobile Home Disaster” (CMT 10 p.m.) CMT continues to take other networks’ television shows and “hickify” them. (“Pimp My Ride” = “Trick My Truck,” “American Chopper” = “Chopper Challenge”). Now we’ve got “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” only with, you guessed it, double-wide trailers.

Saturday 17

Lucky Sevens (TCM 6 p.m.) Programmers at Turner Classic roll all sevens today, coming up with five (shoulda been seven) random films with “seven” in the title: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (6 p.m.), The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (8 p.m.), Seven Men from Now (9:45 p.m.), Raiders of the Seven Seas (11:15 p.m.) and Seven Samurai (1 a.m.).

Sunday 18

Ninjafest 2 (G4 6 p.m.) Who doesn’t love a good Ninjafest? Festivities begin at 6 p.m. with “American Ninja Challenge 2,” in which one G4 viewer gets picked to compete in the Japanese game show “Ninja Warrior.” All five parts of this newest American-infused “Ninja Warrior” season air at 7 p.m., followed by “American Ninja Wrap-Up” at 9:30 p.m.

“43rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards” (KRQE-13 7 p.m.) Reba McEntire hosts. Several people from “American Idol” will probably perform. There will be hats. ... That’s all I got.

“Indiana Jones and the Ultimate Quest” (History 7 p.m.) I’m not entirely sure what the “Ultimate Quest” is, but I’m pretty sure it involves jacking up History Channel’s ratings.

“Mystery of the Crystal Skulls” (Sci-Fi 8 p.m.) Not to be outdone by those eggheads over at History Channel, the Sci-Fi nerds launch their own documentary investigation into the newest Indiana Jones movie.

Monday 19

“The Bachelorette” (KOAT-7 8:02 p.m.) Joining “A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila” and “I Love New York” to help balance the gender disparity in the reality dating show genre comes the fourth season of ABC’s “who wants to sleep with some random chick?” show.

Tuesday 20

“Not Going Out” (BBC America 7:40 p.m.) In this new, romantic sitcom, a freewheeling Brit (Lee Mack, “The Sketch Show”) moves in with a clean-living Californian (Megan Dodds, “Viva Blackpool”). Lee’s budding friendship with her roommate is complicated by the fact that his best friend is her ex-boyfriend.

“The Bad Girls Club: Unfinished Business” (Oxygen 8:30 p.m.) The ladies of Oxygen’s slaphappy reality show return for a one-hour special, which seems like a blatant attempt to land yet another “Clip of the Week” on Bravo’s “The Soup.”

Wednesday 21

“Factory Made” (Discovery 8 p.m.) Ever wondered how blue jeans are made? I imagine they’re sewn together in a giant factory. Huh, turns out I’m right. ... And while we’re on the subject, how is this “new” show different from the old show that follows it, titled “How It’s Made”?
