Week in Sloth

“Apres Ski” on Bravo

Thursday 29

“It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” (KOAT-7 7pm) It’s required by law.

“Sleepy Hollow”/“Bones” (KASA-2 7pm) FOX’ mostly serious forensic examination show has a two-hour crossover with its supernatural, time-traveling crimefighter series. The excuse: Halloween.

Party Down South: The After Party” (CMT 11pm) It’s all over now, except for the STD tests and the rehab.

Friday 30

“American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards 2015” (Hallmark 6pm) Hey, at least the acceptance speeches will be short.

“Exorcism: Live!” (Destination America 7pm) So, the guys from “Ghost Asylum” and a “world renowned” psychic medium will perform a live exorcism on TV. It will take exactly two hours, because that’s what time the network has allotted. ... Yeah, this sounds completely legit.

Saturday 31

See Idiot Box.

Sunday 1

’Tis the Season for Love: Countdown to Christmas (Hallmark 6pm) Seriously, Hallmark? You’re that desperate to win the holiday made-for-TV movie rom-com race? I suppose I should congratulate you for actually waiting until after Halloween to start inundating us with this stuff.

“The Demon Files” (Destination America 8pm) Apparently, DA got into the whole demon thing with Friday night’s live exorcism—so here’s a new documentary show about demon possession.

Monday 2

“Secrets of Einstein’s Brain” (History 7pm) It’s the 60th anniversary of Albert Einstein’s death—so now’s the perfect time to speculate on what sort of superpowers he might have had tucked away in that freakishly brainy brain of his.

The Leisure Class (HBO 8pm) This comedy about a man’s impending marriage into a wealthy family being jeopardized by the arrival of his unpredictable brother comes to us from director Jason Mann, the season 4 winner of “Project Greenlight.”

“Aprés Ski” (Bravo 11pm) Good news, everybody! Bravo has found another upscale service industry filled with catty, drunken, overly entitled employees to exploit in a gossipy new docu-reality show. (It’s a ski resort in British Columbia.)

Tuesday 3

“7 Little Johnstons: Your Burning Questions” (TLC 8:02pm) ... Nope. Not a one.

Wednesday 4

“The 49th Annual CMA Awards” (KOAT-7 7pm) Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood host. Keith Urban, John Mellencamp, Eric Church, Hank Williams Jr., and Fall Out Boy perform. ... Fall Out Boy?

“Late Night Joy” (TLC 9pm) Comedienne Joy Behar scores a late-night chat show in which she invites friends over to her New York City apartment for a “house party.”
