TV Weekend: The Good Guys, SNL, Boardwalk Empire, Walking Dead


I’d say that I still can’t believe that Ann won over Chelsey on America’s Next Top Model Wednesday, but it sounds a little gay. So, how about that very macho The League last night on FX? Dude ...---

What’s new this weekend:
The Good Guys (Fox, tonight) Penultimate Episode: In the second-to-last-ever installment of Fox’s underrated/unwatched The Good Guys, an asshole Internal Affairs officer (Joshua Malina) reopens a case puts a very pissed-off gang back on the street—naturally, it’s time for Jack (Colin Hanks) and Dan (Bradley Whitford and macho mustache) to “bust some punks.” Sigh …

A Walk In My Shoes (NBC, tonight) In yet another Walmart/Procter & Gamble “family night” movie, Nancy Travis plays a high-school teacher who just cares too darn much and can’t understand why her students’ parents don’t. After a freak accident (is there any other kind in these things?), she finds herself in the body and, presumably, shoes of one of those parents—hence, the title. Yes, it’s shit.

Also new tonight:
Supernanny (ABC); Medium, CSI:NY, Blue Bloods (CBS); Smallville, Supernatural (The CW); What Not to Wear (TLC); Law & Order: UK (BBC America); The Benson Interruption (Comedy Central); Sanctuary (SyFy); The Soup (E!)

Saturday Night Live (NBC, Saturday) Robert DeNiro hosts, with “musical” guests Diddy Dirty Money—some form of wackiness is bound to ensue from one or the other. As a rapper and producer, Diddy should stick to making funny commercials for his shitty vodka. Just sayin.’

Boardwalk Empire (HBO, Sunday) Season Finale: Read all about it in True TV (Item 1).

The Walking Dead (AMC, Sunday) Season Finale: Read all about it in True TV (Item 2).

The Hasselhoffs (A&E, Sunday) Series Debut: Read all about it in True TV (Item 3).

Comedy Central’s Hot List 2010 (Comedy Central, Sunday) Says here, “Using a combination of advanced comedy science and gut instinct, Comedy Central has named the best breakout comedians of 2010: Owen Benjamin, Pete Holmes, Kyle Kinane, Natasha Leggero, Kurt Metzger, Chelsea Peretti and Reggie Watts.” Me, I only care about Natasha Leggero, the funniest (and, yes, hottest) comic to come around in any year, but I’ll give these other clowns a shot.

Also new Sunday:
Desperate Housewives, Brothers & Sisters (ABC); The Simpsons, The Cleveland Show, American Dad (Fox); The Amazing Race, Undercover Boss, CSI: Miami (CBS); Bridalplasty, Kendra, Married to Rock (E!); Sarah Palin’s Alaska (TLC); Gene Simmons Family Jewels (A&E); Dexter (Showtime)

Preview: Comedy Central Hot Lister Natasha Leggero explains that female comedians are just “less-molested versions of strippers.”
