Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 10

“Fierce Funny Women” (Showtime 6:30 p.m.) Funny, sure. But fierce? Who are they, Beyoncé?

Friday 11

“Fish Warrior” (National Geographic 6 p.m.) And this week’s National Geographic Show That Should Have Been a Syfy Movie award goes to ...

Repo Man (TCM 12:15 a.m.) Remember, kids: The life of a repo man is always intense.

“Mash Up” (Comedy Central 1:02 a.m.) What’s getting mashed-up? Stand-up comedy, skits and “visualizations.”

Saturday 12

Best Player (Nickelodeon 6 p.m.) A deliveryman and a teenage girl prepare for a showdown in a video game tournament. Wow. It’s like The Wizard, only with less Fred Savage. By way of compensation, the film does offer two of the stars of “iCarly.” But not Carly herself.

“Rascal Flatts: Nothing Like This” (KOAT-7 8 p.m.) The country superstars of Rascal Flatts perform with Justin Bieber. Which of the two comes off as more desperate?

Battle of Los Angeles (Syfy 7 p.m.) Hey, if you can’t get out to the theater to watch the multimillion-dollar alien invasion film Battle: Los Angeles this weekend, you always can stay at home and watch the cheapjack, made-for-TV alien invasion film Battle of Los Angeles. Better yet, watch them both and then argue over the merits of colons vs. prepositions.

“An Idiot Abroad” (Science 8 p.m.) “Round-headed chimp-like creature” Karl Pilkington finally returns home to England. What has he learned in his travels? Probably nothing.

Sunday 13

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 (ABC Family 7 p.m.) I’m quite sure this direct-to-basic-cable sequel will be far more popular than I’ll ever be willing to admit.

Monday 14

“Wedding Wars” (VH1 7 p.m.) If there’s one thing I love more than watching fat people lose weight on a reality show, it’s watching random strangers get married on a reality show.

“Beverly Hills Fabulous” (VH1 8 p.m.) Tantrum-prone hair stylists catering to overprivileged clients in a docu-reality show setting? Sign me up! VH1, you are a TV genius.

Tuesday 15

“The Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump” (Comedy Central 8:30 p.m.) If he does run for president, will Comedy Central have to give equal time to a Mitt Romney roast? Let’s hope so.

“Four of a Kind” (Lifetime 9 p.m.) Four teenage quadruplets do stuff in front of the camera—like tour college campuses, talk to friends and set their mom up on a blind date. Gosh. It’s like they’re people or something.

National Geographic Magazine’s Top 10 Photos of 2010” (KNME-5 10 p.m.) Take that, National Geographic Channel!

Wednesday 16

“Deathwish Movers” (Travel 8 p.m.) How do you make a docu-reality show about furniture movers sound exciting? Call it “Deathwish Movers.”

“The 6th Annual mtvU Woodie Awards” (MTV 10 p.m.) I have no idea what the Woodie Awards are, but they’re being hosted by Donald Glover and that’s good enough for me.
