Made-Up Movies—On Friday, Nov. 18, Gorilla Tango Theater will present its very first “Cinema Loco” event. Billed as “improv goes to the movie,” the evening will feature a classic Hollywood film (in this case, 1936's Reefer Madness). Audiences are asked to give the film a new title, and it's up to the talented members of Gorilla Tango's improv cast to dub all-new dialogue for the film. None of the players have seen the movie in advance, making each show a never-to-be-repeated comedy event. The show starts at 10 p.m. Gorilla Tango is located at 519 Central NW.

“The Apprentice: Martha Stewart” on NBC

Martha's catchphrase bites her on the ass

I hate to be the one to say it, Martha, but you just don't fit in. Not on NBC, anyway.

It seems that, after a season of steadily slipping ratings, “The Apprentice: Martha Stewart” is being phased out. NBC has apparently decided not to bring back domestic diva Martha Stewart to host another season of her poorly received “Apprentice” spin-off. NBC executives said that it had always been their intention to air only a single season of “The Apprentice: Martha Stewart”--which is probably news to Martha who, only a few weeks ago, was bragging to Fortune magazine that producers of “The Apprentice” were thinking of kicking Donald Trump off his own show and replacing him with her.

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 17

“Outrageous and Contagious Viral Video Fight” (Bravo 9 p.m.) If you don't have a high enough bandwidth at home or a cool enough boss at work to hunt for crazy video clips/cartoons on the Internet, you can always turn to this new show for a quick fix.

Friday 18

“WWE Friday Night Smackdown” (KASY-50 7 p.m.) Tonight, it's a Triple Threat match featuring Batista vs. Eddie Guerrero vs. Randy Orton. Wow, it's like the end of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, only with less squinting and more body slams.
