Week in Sloth

“Big Smo” on A&E

Thursday 5

“2014 NBA Finals” (KOAT-7 7pm) NASA can put a man on the moon, but Nike can’t stop basketball shoes from squeaking on the court?

“It Takes a Church” (GSN 7pm) I’m not sure how TV game shows became a bastion of Christian thought, but it’s happened. Following up on the success of “The American Bible Challenge,” Game Show Network offers this Jesus-based dating game in which “members of Christian congregations help unattached fellow parishioners find their match.”

Friday 6

“Brian Williams D-Day” (KOB-4 7pm) Rap sensation Brian Williams walks us though the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion.

“D-Day in HD” (History 7pm) Meanwhile, History Channel breaks out the good footage for the 70th.

Saturday 7

“Power” (Starz 7pm) This one’s a drama about a “wealthy New York City nightclub owner who leads a double life as a drug kingpin.” So, like the opposite of Batman.

Sunday 8

“The 68th Annual Tony Awards” (CBS 7pm) Apparently Hugh Jackman won the coin toss with Neil Patrick Harris this year, so he gets to host.

“Miss USA 2014: Live from Baton Rouge” (KOAT-7 7pm) “E! News” host Giuliana Rancic and MSNBC talking head Thomas Roberts are on microphone duty. Something called Florida Georgia Line performs. Every year this gets more like that free afternoon show you get in the casino lounges in Las Vegas.

“The Hunt” (History 8pm) For some odd reason, Metallica’s James Hetfield narrates this eight-episode docu-reality series about bear-hunting in Kodiak, Alaska. I mean ... I guess it’s kinda metal. But still.

“Rev Run’s Sunday Suppers” (Cooking 8pm) If Vanilla Ice can have a home renovation show, why can’t Run-D.M.C.’s Rev Run have a cooking show?

Monday 9

“Brazil with Michael Palin” (KNME-5 8pm) No, not the Terry Gilliam filmwhich does feature Michael Palinbut another travel show starring the Monty Python alum. For this one Palin keeps it tight, traveling within the borders of a single country: Brazil.

“Hillary Clinton” (KOAT-7 8pm) Tonight ABC profiles Hillary Clinton for an hour. Tomorrow conservative pundits have a conniption fit about the “lamestream media” for 12 hours.

“Murder in the First” (TNT 9pm) Producer Steven Bochco (“Hill Street Blues,” “NYPD Blue”) returns to his life of crime with this San Francisco-set detective show starring Taye Diggs (The Best Man) and Kathleen Robertson (“Beverly Hills, 90210”). As is the cable TV trend these days, each season will follow one single case.

Tuesday 10

“Chasing Life” (ABC Family 7pm) ABC Fam’s newest drama is a remake of a Mexican telenovela about an up-and-coming newspaper reporter (no such thing) who learns she has cancer.

Wednesday 11

“Spike Guys Choice 2014” (Spike 7pm) Matthew McConaughey, Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Hart and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are among the honorees.

“Big Smo” (A&E 8:30pm) Who the living crud is “Big Smo”? Why he’s the reigning “King of Hick-Hop.” Guess that’s a thing now. Naturally the guy deserves his own reality show.
