The Week in Sloth
“Fringe” (KASA-2 8 p.m.) FOX closes out the second season of its trippy sci-fi drama. Will it return for a third? Eh, maybe.
Memorial Tribute: Lena Horne (TCM 6 p.m.) TCM honors singer/actress Lena Horne with a triple feature of films: 1938’s The Duke Is Tops, 1943’s Cabin in the Sky and 1942’s Panama Hattie.
Zebraman (Sundance 7 p.m.) Japanese madman Takashi Miike’s balls-to-the-wall bonkers 2004 sci-fi flick is both a loving tribute to and a crazed parody of superhero flicks. In it, a failed father tries to escape reality by dressing up as his favorite childhood hero—and is soon called upon to defeat evil alien invaders.
“Revolver Golden Gods Awards” (VH1 Classics 8 p.m.) Revolver, the world’s loudest rock magazine, hands out statues to famed hard rock and heavy metal acts. I’m guessing the black leather pants and skull T-shirt quotient in the room is gonna be through the roof.
Seven Deadly Sins (LMN 6 p.m.) Author Robin Wasserman’s sex-obsessed teen lit series gets adapted as a TV mini-series. Think of it as “Desperate Housewives” for tweens.
“10 Things I Hate About You” (ABC Family 6 p.m.) ABC Family’s short-lived movie spin-off concludes its run with this Season 2 finale.
“The Bachelorette” (KOAT-7 8 p.m.) Like the return of the red-breasted robin, the re-emergence of crappy reality shows is a clear indication that summer is upon us.
“Law & Order” (KOB-4 9 p.m.) It’s official, NBC has canceled its flagship legal drama, making this 20th season finale the last. Ouch. That means the show is stuck one season short of beating “Gunsmoke” as the longest-running drama in prime-time history.
TCM Spotlight: Race and Hollywood (TCM 6 p.m.) TCM explores the role of Native Americans in Hollywood starting with the 1914 Cecil B. DeMille film Squaw Man and continuing with three modern films starring Iñupiat/French Canadian/Cree actress Irene Bedard: Lakota Woman: Siege at Wounded Knee, Smoke Signals and Naturally Native.
“Dancing With the Stars” (KOAT-7 8 p.m.) “DWTS” polishes off its last cha-cha with a two-hour season finale. Gee, I wonder if Kate will drop by for tea and sympathy.
“American Idol” (KASA-2 7 p.m.) “American Idol” ends its comparatively dull ninth season with a 127-minute episode. I guess 130 minutes would have been excessive.
“Saturday Night Live Presents: Sports All-Stars” (KOB-4 7 p.m.) Because sports stars are always the most hilarious hosts on “SNL.”
