Death Comes to Town (IFC, Friday) — American premiere. I’ve seen mixed reviews of this eight-part miniseries from ’90s sketch darlings Kids in the Hall, but they’ve given me enough laughs over the years to earn my attention for at least a couple episode. Besides, free kitten with every abortion! (watch the trailer here)
Dateline NBC (NBC, Friday) — Ah, news magazines! For people too dumb to read magazines, but too boring to watch regular TV.
Whitney Cummings: Money Shot (Comedy Central, Saturday) — I thought she was great at the Hasselhoff roast (which plays again tonight, by the way), and even though people made fun of her looks, I thought she looked pretty hot. You know, for a comic.
Dancer with Tiny Legs (TLC, Sunday) — I had this in the links a while back. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Never change, TLC.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians (E!, Sunday) — Season premiere. The FIFTH season. This is why the terrorists hate us.
Mad Men (AMC) — Thankfully, there’s something on TV that doesn’t suck on Sunday. I’m really ready for Don Draper to stop being a welcome mat this season.
Sunday Night Football (NBC) — Vikings at 49ers. A young upstart named Brett Favre makes his preseason debut.
