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.
