The Boob Tube: Must-See TV For The Week Of November 22, 2010
It’s a time-honored Thanksgiving tradition, on par with stuffing a turkey and baking pumpkin pie: Thanksgiving day television marathons. This Thursday, you can watch 15 hours of “Burn Notice” on USA, an entire day of “I Dream of Jeannie” and “Bewitched” on TV Land, 12 James Bond movies on Syfy, or six “Beverly Hills, 90210” holiday episodes on SoapNet. What else will you want to watch this week? Previews and details after the jump.
The Show: “Skating with the Stars”
Set Your DVR For: Tonight, 9 p.m. (EST), ABC
If you’ve had enough of the Bristol Palin drama on “Dancing with the Stars,” might I suggest skipping it and heading straight to the premiere of this show? Bethenny Frankel, we are so rooting for you.
The Show: “The Comeback”
Set Your DVR For: Tuesday, 10 p.m. (EST), Sundance
Lisa Kudrow was hilarious on this reality-bending show, playing herself making a comeback on a fictional TV series called “Room and Bored.” It was tragically canceled after one season, but now the Sundance Channel has picked up the baton. Thanks, dudes!
The Show: “Punkin Chunkin”
Set Your DVR For: Thursday, 8 p.m. (EST), Discovery
On this annual special, science and engineering whizzes create contraptions to make a pumpkin fly as far as they can. Yes, please!
The Show: “Beyonce: I Am World Tour”
Set Your DVR For: Thursday, 9:30 p.m. (EST), ABC
Yeah, it’s tempting to watch “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” again after chowing down on your turkey. But I think I’m gonna watch this instead. I freaking love Beyonce.
The Show: “Bridalplasty”
Set Your DVR For: Sunday, 9 p.m. (EST), E!
Plunk! That was the sound of our society hitting rock bottom with this show about brides competing for plastic surgery. And I want to watch. No, need to watch.
The Show: “Dexter”
Set Your DVR For: Sunday, 9 p.m. (EST), Showtime
This show is amazing, but so hard to watch. Having Julie Stiles as a guest star helps.
