The Boob Tube: Must-See TV For The Week Of January 24, 2011

You have plans this Saturday night. Yes, you do. At 9 p.m. on the 29th, you will be watching Tiffany and Debbie (fine, Deborah) Gibson in their SyFy movie, “Mega Python vs. Gatoroid.” And it should be either (a) awesome or (b) so bad it’s fun to play “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ along with.
