Whale Wars (Animal Planet) — Sigh. It’s still not about whales fighting each other.
Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader? (Fox) — Star Jones and wildlife guy Jack Hanna. As if these people are what it takes to make you say to yourself, “Y’know what? I don’t usually watch that show, but Star Jones? THE Star Jones? Honey, cancel our dinner reservations!”
The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien (NBC) — Seth Rogen and tween hero/jailbait Demi Lovato. Steven Ho and Seth Green tonight. [Rogen and Lovato are next Friday. My B.] Conan needs us, people. He came in third in the ratings last week. Behind “Nightline.” Ouch. Make your parents watch him already.
Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon? (truTV) — Answer: yes. I just saved you an hour.
Boxing (HBO) — I can’t tell from the listings which of the various HBOs this is on, but the channel is re-running all three classic fights between Mickey Ward and the recently-murdered Arturo Gatti.
Chopping Block (NBC) — I’d be a huge fan of this show if it were about the French Revolution. Because people got their heads, you know, the guillotine– whatever. It’s 5:00 on Friday and I made a whale Photoshop, what else do you want from me?
Bored this weekend? Keep me company over at With Leather — I’ll be posting over there about sports and sport-like things.
