We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

TV Weekend: Real Time, SNL, Dexter, Eastbound & Down


This just in: CBS has given all five of its lame new 2010-11 series full seasons: Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, The Defenders, Mike & Molly and Shatner Shit; The CW, meanwhile, has picked up good series Hellcats and Nikita. Half yay! ---

New this weekend:
Real Time With Bill Maher (HBO, tonight) Tonight’s panelists include director Rob Reiner, commentator Nicole Wallace, reporter Jake Tapper and … senatorial candidate/baby daddy Levi Johnston. George Clooney will also be on hand, presumably to give Levi some tips on loving and/or leaving ‘em.

Also new tonight:
The Good Guys (Fox); Smallville, Supernatural (The CW); School Pride (NBC); Medium, CSI:NY, Blue Bloods (CBS); Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Cartoon Network); Law & Order: UK (BBC America); Teach: Tony Danza (A&E); Sanctuary (SyFy); The Soup (E!); The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret (IFC)

Saturday Night Live (NBC/CW 30, Saturday) That cute lil’ Emma Stone (Easy A, Zombieland and the criminally-underrated The Rocker) hosts, and a hot new buzz band that’s only been around for 10 years and released five albums, Kings of Leon, perform.

Also new Saturday:
Outlaw (NBC) The Smits burn-off continues.

Dexter (Showtime, Sunday) The Julia Styles infiltration is only beginning, Dexheads—better get used to her. Tonight, Dex wonders if being found in a pool of his dead mother’s blood will have a psychological effect on baby Harrison (hmm, a thinker), and suspicious Quinn does some further investigation on Dexter (because, apparently, he’s the only real cop in Miami).

Eastbound & Down (HBO, Sunday) He may have lost Vida (damn!) and his spot on the Churros baseball team (not so much of a loss—remember Vida?), but at least Kenny Fucking Powers still has his dad (Don Johnson) and ATVs. But Vida … damn!

Also new Sunday:
Desperate Housewives, Brothers & Sisters (ABC); The Amazing Race, Undercover Boss, CSI: Miami (CBS); The Simpsons, The Cleveland Show, Family Guy, American Dad (Fox); Boardwalk Empire, Bored to Death (HBO); Childrens Hospital, The Venture Bros, Metalocalypse (Adult Swim)

Preview: Sadly, looks like a Vida-free episode of Eastbound & Down.
