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 6 th 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.
