I’m wrapping things up a little early to leave for a long weekend in the Caribbean. As usual, I won’t say exactly where, but here’s a hint: it has the highest flag-to-native ratio in the world. Your guest blogger for Monday will be the incomparable Mike Tunison; I’ll be back to the grind on Tuesday. (GIF via)
Big Love (HBO, Sunday) — Series finale. From what I’ve heard, the final season has been much better than the disappointing fourth year, possibly because Bill Henrickson’s (Bill Paxton) political career is getting derailed by statutory rape charges. Unless statutory rape charges help the citizens of Utah identify with him.
Super Nanny (ABC, Friday) — Series finale. Oh no, parents might actually have to raise their own children now.
Ax Men (History, Sunday) — Season finale. Not to be confused with “AXE Men,” which is about date rape. Man, this is a really rape-y Weekend Preview.
Detroit 1-8-7 (ABC, Sunday) — Season finale. And probably the series finale, too. Matt Millen thinks this show deserves another seven seasons.
Charlie Sheen: On the Brink (TLC, Sunday) –On the brink of WINNING!
The Pee-Wee Herman Show on Broadway (HBO, Saturday) — I sometimes think I’m the only person from my peer group who never found Pee-Wee Herman funny. At nine years old, I was like, “Dude, grow UP.”
