The Boob Tube: Hot Weekend TV For September 20th-21st 2008

Annika Harris | September 20, 2008 - 10:00 am

TV this weekend is really kind of wack because there’s hardly anything of note to watch. That is unless you’re a fan of the cult classic Spaceballs. G4 TV will premiere “Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs: The Animated Series” on Saturday (clip, after the jump). And if you need a refresher on the film that inspired this new series, the folks at G4 will air the film before the premiere. You can also watch some really entertaining movies, like the Legally Blonde franchise. Sunday is the better day for TV watching, especially in the evening, when “Gossip Girl” and “ANTM” repeat and the “60th Primetime Emmy Awards” air. [TV Guide]
