Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 27

“Archer” (FX 11 p.m.) FX’s snarky superspy cartoon returns for a second season.

“Love Calling” (Bravo 9 p.m.) Former advertising executive and CNBC talk show host Donny Deutsch answers your questions about love and sex live via Skype. Why? No idea.

Friday 28

“Phineas and Ferb: Rollercoaster the Musical!” (Disney 9 p.m.) Disney’s hit kiddie cartoon returns with a musical episode in which our enterprising young lads build their very own backyard roller coaster.

“Working Class” (CMT 9 p.m.) Country Music Television tries its hand at the old-fashioned couch-and-kitchen sitcom. This one stars Melissa Peterman (“Reba”) as a single mom trying to make ends meet. It’s kinda like “Roseanne,” only more Republican.

Saturday 29

Mega Python vs. Gatoroid (Syfy 7 p.m.) A giant snake versus a half-alligator/half- ... um, asteroid? I can’t tell. Seriously, Syfy. Get it together. I swear, half the time you’re just drunk when you make this stuff up. I mean, I’ll give you credit for casting Debbie Gibson and Tiffany, but you’re really going to have to try harder.

Sunday 30

“17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards” (TNT/TBS 6 p.m.) Everybody’s always kind of uptight at the SAG Awards. Maybe it’s just that the Oscars are looming closer. Maybe nobody wants to look bad in front of their peers, most of whom are just waiting to steal their jobs.

The Lost Valentine (KRQE-13 7 p.m.) Jennifer Love Hewitt and Betty White (yeah, she’s not overexposed) star in this made-for-TVer about a cynical journalist investigating a romantic World War II tale.

“Kennedys’ Home Movies” (TLC 7 p.m.) Three generations of Kennedys are profiled via long-lost amateur film footage.

Monday 31

“The Cape” (KOAT-7 8 p.m.) Mena Suvari (American Beauty) guest stars on this pleasantly silly superhero series as a brainy vigilante known as Dice.

“Fashion Police: The 2011 SAG Awards” (Style 9 p.m.) How long do you think before Joan Rivers takes a look at someone’s bodice and says, “Talk about SAG!”?

Tuesday 1

“Seriously Funny Kids” (Lifetime 7 p.m.) Heidi Klum, who isn’t even trying now, produces this new show, which she describes as “not a reboot of the Bill Cosby show, ‘Kids Say the Darndest Things’.” Which means that’s exactly what it is.

Wednesday 2

“NOVA scienceNOW” (KNME-5 7 p.m.) Neil deGrasse Tyson answers the question how does the brain work? Better question: Why does my brain not work as well as Neil deGrasse Tyson’s?

“Bigfoot: The Definitive Guide” (History 7 p.m.) Oh, now where’s your scientific expertise when we need it, Neil deGrasse Tyson?
