Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 3

“The Truth Behind” (National Geographic 8 p.m.) Hey, longtime TV viewer. Remember those 80,000 other cryptozoology shows that failed to definitively prove or disprove the existence of the Loch Ness Monster? ... I have a feeling this new one is totally gonna nail it.

Friday 4

“Bad Sex” (LOGO 10 p.m.) What goes on behind the closed doors of a sex therapy group? Less interesting things than you’re capable of imagining is my guess. But that isn’t stopping LOGO from making a docu-reality show about it.

Saturday 5

“True Life: I’m Occupying Wall Street” (MTV 7 p.m.) MTV’s documentary series gets all current with a look at the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Love’s Christmas Journey (Hallmark 6 p.m.) The latest in the unending evangelical Western book/movie series (Love Comes Softly, Love’s Enduring Promise, Love’s Long Journey, Love’s Abiding Joy, Love’s Unending Legacy, Love’s Unfolding Dream, Love Takes Wing, Love Finds a Home, Love Begins) takes place during Christmas. Next up: Love’s Repetitious Sequel.

“Natural Born Dealers” (Planet Green 8 p.m.) Planet Green finally gets around to producing its own “buying and selling people’s old junk” show. I’m guessing the idea counts as recycling.

“Would You Rather? With Graham Norton” (BBC America 9 p.m.) British chat show host Graham Norton turns the old party game into a panel discussion show featuring celebrities and comedians who are forced to choose the lesser of two evils.

Sunday 6

Mistletoe Over Manhattan (Hallmark 6 p.m.) In this made-for-TV weeper, the wife of Santa Claus helps a divorcing couple rediscover their love for each other. ... I don’t know about you, but I’m sad Halloween is over.

John Sandford’s Certain Prey (USA 7 p.m.) Sandford’s 21-book-deep series about eccentric-yet-intrepid Minnesota cop Lucas Davenport comes to life with Mark Harmon in the lead role.

“Hell on Wheels” (AMC 8 p.m.) AMC goes from zombies to cowboys with this railroad-centric Western series.

“The Heart, She Holler” (Cartoon Network 1:30 a.m.) Comedians Patton Oswalt and Kristen Schaal star in this bat-shit-crazy, live-action miniseries from the creators of “Wonder Showzen.” Oswalt describes it as “if Abel Ferrara made ‘Hee Haw.’ ” Yikes.

Monday 7

“The Witch Doctor Will See You Now” (National Geographic 8 p.m.) Explorer Piers Gibbon travels to the ends of the Earth to dig up traditional remedies like snake blood or goat blood or virgin blood. ... Huh, a lot of these seem to involve blood.

Tuesday 8

“Vietnam in HD” (History 7 p.m.) Wow, it’s so realistic, it’s like I’m having a PTSD-induced flashback!

Wednesday 9

“The 45th Annual CMA Awards” (KOAT-7 7 p.m.) Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts, Lionel Richie, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood and ... wait a minute. Who invited Lionel Richie?

“Prophets of Science Fiction” (Science 7 p.m.) Ridley Scott (director of Alien, don’t ya know) hosts this new series concentrating on science-fiction visionaries who predicted future innovations. First up: Mary Shelley of Frankenstein fame.
