The Week in Sloth
“Dave’s Old Porn” (Showtime 9:30 p.m.) Comedian Dave Attell welcomes guests like porn stars Ron Jeremy, Georgina Spelvin and Belladonna as well as comedians like Chelsea Handler, Daniel Tosh and Whitney Cummings (who, oddly enough, isn’t a porn star) to his new show. Their job: Riff on old porn flicks, “MST3K” style. ... No, really.
“American Masters: Pearl Jam Twenty” (KNME-5 9 p.m.) Rock-journalist-turned-moviemaker Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire) rounds up Eddie Vedder and the gang to document their 20th year in the music biz.
“Boss” (Starz 8 p.m.) Kelsey Grammer gets serious to play an evil Chicago mayor who tries to cover up his recently diagnosed degenerative neurological disorder.
“X-Men Anime” (G4 9 p.m.) Following in the wake of Iron Man and Wolverine, Marvel’s X-Men get a Japanese anime makeover.
“Viper’s Creed” (G4 9:30 p.m.) From noted anime designer Shinji Aramaki (“Megazone 23,” “Genesis Survivor Gaiarth,” “Appleseed”) comes another postapocalyptic mecha series. (You were expecting something else?)
“Halloween Block Party” (HGTV 6 p.m.) HGTV checks out the best-decorated houses in America. Makes the toilet paper ghosts on your front porch look kinda weak.
“The World’s Worst Place to Be Gay” (Logo 9 p.m.) The Nascar Winston Cup finals? Fred Phelps’ Christmas party? Ohio? ... Oh, Uganda. Yeah, that would totally suck.
Oliver’s Ghost (Hallmark 7 p.m.) Oliver is an 11-year-old kid who can see the dead apparition of Martin Mull. “I see ... sardonic TV comedians from the ’70s.”
“Once Upon a Time” (KOAT-7 7 p.m.) Snow White, the Evil Queen, Rumplestiltskin, Jiminy Cricket and a bunch of other fairy tale characters are exiled to the real world and given amnesia in ABC’s fantasy-filled drama from “Lost” writer Damon Lindelof.
“The Glam Fairy” (Style 6 p.m.) If you’ve been waiting eagerly for Alexa Prisco from “Jerseylicious” to open her own beauty salon and get her own reality show, your freakishly misguided prayers have been answered.
“Monster In-Laws” (A&E 8 p.m.) If you were a parent, why in hell would you agree to appear on a reality show called “Monster In-Laws”?
“Zombies: A Living History” (History 7 p.m.) History Channel schools us on the untold story of the living dead.
“Bomb Patrol: Afghanistan” (G4 8 p.m.) If you were a cameraman in Hollywood and were given the choice between shooting a season of the reality show “Jersey Shore” and a season of the reality show “Bomb Patrol: Afghanistan,” I bet you’d have to think long and hard over which would be the more hazardous assignment.
“Flip Men” (Spike 8:30 p.m.) A reality show about people who buy houses, fix them up and then “flip” them? Way to grab the 2008 TV zeitgeist there, Spike.
“Whitechapel” (BBC America 8 p.m.) This dark new BBC crime drama follows the investigation of some modern-day murders in East London that mirror the work of a certain famous serial killer.
