The Week in Sloth

Play Youtube Video

Thursday 28

“The Oprah Winfrey Show” (KOAT-7 4 p.m.) Oprah Winfrey reunites the entire cast of The Sound of Music for the first time in 45 years. Because she’s Oprah and can do that kind of thing.

Halloween: The Inside Story” (Biography 7 p.m.) Cult filmmaker John Carpenter recounts the creation of his influential 1978 slasher flick Halloween, which became the most profitable independent film of its time.

“Project Runway” (Lifetime 7 p.m.) We crown another winner tonight. Probably Mondo. Or not. But probably.

“Fairy Jobmother” (Lifetime 9 p.m.) Think “Nanny 911,” but instead of helping with unruly kids, this woman kicks unemployed people in the butt and makes them get jobs.

Friday 29

“Snow Men” (Discovery 8 p.m.) And the Great Wheel of Blue Collar Jobs That Don’t Have Reality Shows Yet lands on ... snow plow drivers.

“It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” (KOAT-7 7 p.m.) It’s a tradition, Charlie Brown.

Carnival Magic (AMC 12:45 a.m.) Al Adamson (Satan’s Sadists, Horror of the Blood Monsters, Psycho a Go-Go) directs this obscuro 1981 flick about a jealous lion tamer who kidnaps a rival magician’s talking chimp and sells it to a laboratory for experimentation. It’s ... interesting.

Saturday 30

Red: Werewolf Hunter (Syfy 7 p.m.) Little Red Riding Hood (fan fave Felicia Day) hunts down lycanthropes in this modern-day update.

Sunday 31

See “Idiot Box”.

“Wreck Chasers” (Discovery 9 p.m.) And the Great Wheel of Blue Collar Jobs That Don’t Have Reality Shows Yet lands on ... tow truck drivers.

“Mario Lopez: Saved by the Baby” (VH1 8:30 p.m.) You know, I didn’t give a rat’s ass about former “Saved by the Bell” hunk Mario Lopez until his girlfriend got pregnant, and then ... nope, still don’t care.

Tuesday 2

“America’s Election Headquarters: The 2010 Midterms” (KASA-2 7 p.m.) All the networks will be covering the election results tonight, but FOX is likely to be the most smugly self-congratulatory—I mean, “fair and balanced”—about it.

“Mysteries at the Museum” (Travel Channel 7 p.m.) Travel Channel’s new show reveals the scandal, mystery and intrigue behind some of America’s most famous treasures.

“Running Russell Simmons” (Oxygen 11 p.m.) Rap mogul Russell Simmons’ coterie of female assistants gets a reality show.

Wednesday 3

“Circus” (KNME-5 8 p.m.) This six-hour documentary miniseries takes viewers behind the scenes with the people who live and work at the Big Apple Circus.

“Marijuana: A Chronic History” (History 7 p.m.) The “Chronic” pun beat out the “Smoking” pun in a History Channel office poll by only a few points.
