Week in Sloth
The Week in Sloth
“Poetry Slam!” (Golf Channel 7 p.m.) This documentary explores America’s newest extreme sports craze in which word-spewing poets get in the ring with mixed martial artists for alternating rounds of freeform poetry and ground-and-pound action. So why is it on Golf Channel?
“Merlin” (SyFy 8 p.m.) The British-lensed fantasy series moves its second season from NBC to SyFy.
“Miami Medical” (KRQE-13 9 p.m.) Sexy young doctors sleeping with one another, treating baffling medical cases and trying to keep up the pace at a major metropolitan hospital? Why hasn’t someone thought of this before?
The Ten Commandments (KOAT-7 6 p.m.) Is it Easter already?
“The Man With Half a Body” (TLC 7 p.m.) Here’s a fine addition to the long list of highly appetizing TLC/Discovery documentaries such as “101 Things Removed from the Human Body,” “When Surgical Tools Get Left Behind,” “A Trash Can of Skin,” “Men With Breasts,” “The Face-Eating Tumor,” “The 100-pound Tumor,” “The 200-Pound Tumor,” “Born Without a Face,” “The Half-Ton Man,” “The 627-Pound Woman,” “Born with Two Heads,” “The Boy Whose Skin Fell Off,” “The Man Whose Arms Exploded” and “You Swallowed What?”
“NCAA Men’s Championship” (KRQE-13 7 p.m.) I guess you can all go back to work after tonight.
“Aftermath: When the Earth Stops Spinning” (National Geographic 7 p.m.) Wait. What? Don’t I have enough to worry about already?
“Christian Siriano: Having a Moment” (Bravo 8 p.m.) Yeah, I sorta remember this season four winner of “Project Runway.” Gay, had funny hair—that’s the guy, right? Not sure I’m all that interested in a reality show about just him.
“Runaway Squad” (A&E 8 p.m.) It’s like “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” only with runaway teenagers instead of bail-jumping convicts.
Dad’s In Heaven With Nixon (Showtime 6:30 p.m.) Autism is the hot new Hollywood trend and Showtime jumps right on it, airing this documentary about three generations of an affluent, Irish-American family in Southampton touched by autism.
“How the States Got Their Shape” (History 7 p.m.) I’m gonna go with “drunk surveyors.”
“Peep Show” (BBC America 7 p.m.) David Mitchell and Robert Webb return for the third season of their awesome show about two mismatched roommates and what goes on inside their weird little minds. I still prefer this sitcom to Mitchell and Webb’s sketch comedy; but if you like that too, the third season of “The Mitchell and Webb Look” airs immediately after “Peep Show.”
“The Buddha” (KNME-5 8 p.m.) The Enlightened One gets the rock star treatment with his own PBS biography. It’s narrated by Richard Gere. Of course.
