Week in Sloth

Thursday 2

“The Vice Presidential Debate” (KASA-2/KOB-4/KOAT-7/KNME-5/KRQE-13 7 p.m.) I’ll bet you a hundred bucks Sarah Palin can’t get through this thing without using the words “hockey” and “snow-machine racing.”

“WrestleMania: The World Television Premiere” (KASY-50 7 p.m.) In case the debate is too intellectual for ya.

“Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style” (Bravo 9 p.m.) For Season 2, Tim adds Greta Monahan as co-host. Why for, Tim? You don’t need the crutch. You’re way more fashionable than the ladies.

Friday 3

“Tommy Hilfiger Presents: Ironic Iconic America” (Bravo 9 p.m.) Wow. Seems Bravo has really settled in as the clotheshorse channel.

“The Ex List” (KRQE-13 8 p.m.) On the advice of a psychic, a woman combs through all her past boyfriends in order to locate her future husband. If this show lasts for more than three or four seasons, this woman’s going to need to have been a major whore.

“Sanctuary” (Sci-Fi 7 p.m.) It’s like “The X-Files” or “Torchwood” or “Fringe” or any one of those team sci-fi shows--except that our heroes are trying to protect the monsters instead of kill them. ... Oh, and it’s shot entirely on green screen.

“Star Wars: The Clone Wars” (Cartoon Network 10 p.m.) Yeah, not a lot of people seemed interested in watching this cheaply animated addition to George Lucas’ increasingly lame Star Wars mythology when it popped up in theaters a couple months ago. Maybe they’ll be more interested now that it’s free.

Saturday 4

“CBS EliteXC Saturday Night Fights” (KRQE-13 8 p.m.) It’s Round 2 for the “controversial” (read: “potentially fixed”) primetime mixed martial arts league.

“Louis C.K.: Chewed Up” (Showtime 9 p.m.) Good to see the man who gave the world Pootie Tang is still up and running.

Sunday 5

“4Real” (KWBQ-19 4 p.m.) This Canadian TV series follows celebrities as they travel the world and meet real-life community leaders. Tonight’s celebs? Cameron Diaz and K’naan. ... You know, K’naan, the Toronto-based poet and hip-hop artist.

“Easy Money” (KWBQ-19 8 p.m.) This drama about a family of small-time paycheck loan officers is notable mostly for the fact that it was shot right here in Albuquerque. Way to represent, 505.

Monday 6

“Magic’s Biggest Secrets Finally Revealed” (KASY-50 8 p.m.) Here’s a secret you could reveal: Why do people still pay attention to David Blaine?

Tuesday 7

“Second Presidential Debate” (KASA-2/KOB-4/KOAT-7/KRQE-13 7 p.m.) C’mon, boys, mix it up this time.

“Dirty Jobs” (Discovery 7 p.m.) A new season kicks off with Mike taking on the job of tar rigger. No idea what a “tar rigger” is, but any job that includes the word “tar” has got to suck big time.

Wednesday 8

“The Tony Rock Project” (KASY-50 7 p.m.) Chris Rock’s little brother gets his own sketch comedy show. I’m thinking nepotism had something to do with it.
