Week in Sloth

“24” on FOX

Thursday 1

“The iHeartRadio Music Awards” (KOB-4 7pm) Personally speaking, I don’t heart radio. And I can’t say I’m any huge fan of Clear Channel’s centralized music app either. However, if you really need to hear overexposed stars like Blake Shelton, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Pitbull and Shakira, then iHeartRadio is happy to deliver.

Friday 2

“Shark Tank: Swimming With Sharks” (KOB-4 7pm) The moguls behind NBC’s “gimme money” show take viewers on a behind-the-scenes look at how and why they choose to invest in certain crazy schemes.

“The Improv: 50 years Behind the Brick Wall” (Comedy Central 10pm) Jerry Seinfeld, Ray Romano, Jay Leno, Kathy Griffin, Jimmy Fallon, Sarah Silverman, Keenen Ivory Wayans and others pay tribute to the legendary LA comedy club founded in 1963 by Budd Friedman.

Saturday 3

“24: Jack Is Back” (KASA-2 7:30pm) It’s been four years since the Season 8 finale aired, so viewers might need a little refresher course in order to figure out what’s going on in the Season 9 premiere on Monday.

“OMG EMT!” (TLC 8pm) WTF, TLC? SRSLY.

Sunday 4

“The Simpsons” (KASA-2 7pm) To celebrate the show’s 550th episode, producers have commissioned an entire episode made out of LEGOs. Because LEGOs are awesome.

“ICF Canoe Freestyle World Championships” (FSNM2 8pm) Freestyle canoe paddling? I stand corrected, Fox Sports New Mexico South: We really did need another sports network.

Monday 5

“24: Live Another Day” (KASA-2 7pm) It’s the ninth season of “24.” Jack is back, running around London trying to avert yet another disaster, and Chloe has gone full-on Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for some reason.

“The Gospel of Jesus’s Wife” (Smithsonian 6pm) A lot of academics and archaeologists seem to think that recently revealed document concerning the “wife” of Jesus is authentic. So what’s it all about? Let’s tick off some fundamentalists, shall we?

“Louie” (FX 11pm) After a refreshing 19-month breather, Louis C.K. clocks in for the fourth season of his eponymous sitcom.

Tuesday 6

“Get Rich or Die Mining” (National Geographic 9pm) It’s getting so you can’t tell the mineral mining reality shows from one another without a score card.

Wednesday 7

“Catfish: The TV Show” (MTV 11pm) It’s kinda hard to believe, what with this show now entering its third season, that people are still being “catfished” online. Lemme spell it out for you: That’s not a hot teenage girl you’re talking to, that Nigerian prince isn’t going to give you a fortune, and your penis won’t grow three times in size if you mail someone your credit card number.
