Eastbound & Down/Life’s Too Short/Luck (HBO, Sunday) – HBO’s next series should be a sci-fi show set 25 years in the future that follows the life of the child that was raised by Kenny Powers. Maybe with lasers and stuff. I think that would be a good show. (Preview of this week’s episode after the jump. NSFW audio. Duh.)
Saturday Night Live (NBC, Saturday) – I like Jonah Hill. He seems like a really cool guy, he’s dating Dustin Hoffman’s daughter, the world is his oyster. But it’s gonna take a long time for “Academy Award Nominee Jonah Hill” to sound right.
Portlandia (IFC, Friday) – Season finale, followed by a sneak peek at “Comedy Bang Bang,” IFC’s upcoming show based on one of my favorite podcasts.
The Simpsons/Bob’s Burgers/Family Guy/American Dad (FOX, Sunday) – I don’t know if or when you gave up on these shows, but I recommend giving them a fresh shot every once in a while if you did. This has been “DG Tells You to Do Stuff and Then You All Probably Yell at Him About It.”
The Amazing Race/The Good Wife (CBS, Sunday) – From TV Guide, here is the complete summary of this week’s episode of “The Amazing Race”: “The race continues in Turin, Italy.” Heard it here first!
The Walking Dead (AMC, Sunday) – Here’s something I’ve always wondered: Zombies eat brains, right? But as more and more people are turned into zombies, the number of brains they’re eating will increase exponentially. What happens when they run out? Brains are a finite resource, zombies. They’re not something renewable like air, or Skittles, or oil. You need to conserve — maybe eat only half a brain and save the rest for later, or start raising humans like livestock. Here to help.
Shameless/House of Lies/Californication (Showtime, Sunday) – Based on our poll today, it looks like a bunch of you watch “Shameless.” That surprised me a little. I will have to retreat to my laboratory (kitchen) and ponder this (eat pasta) for a while.
UPDATE — The Announcement (ESPN, Sunday) – I forgot about it on Friday, but this documentary about Magic Johnson’s announcement that he has HIV looks great. Watch what you want on Sunday, but I’ll be watching this. (Here’s an excellent review by Dan Devine at Yahoo!)
