FIND OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP…

ALL TIMES EASTERN AND PACIFIC

FRIDAY JULY 17th


OUT FOR JUSTICE
Network: AMC
Time: 8 – 10PM

Reasons to watch: I’d like to say that this is Seagal at his most painfully self-unaware but I don’t think the science exists to actually meter that. You can tell in this movie he wanted to play a gangster but he also wanted to be the hero. So the solution is to have his character be a cop that the mob respects. Respects out of fear of course. And how could you not respect a man named Gino Felino when he comes into the room yelling, "ANYBODY SEEN RITCHIE?! ANYBODY KNOW WHY RITCHIE DID BOBBY LUPO??!!"

FRIDAY NIGHT SMACKDOWN!
Network: My 9
Time: 8 – 10PM

Reasons to watch: Chris Jericho gives an update on Edge’s leg injury. Discusses plans to beat someone over the head with it.



ROBOCOP
Network:
IFC
Time: 9:15 – 11PM

Reasons to watch: A cop who is also a robot. No brainer.

WHO’S ON LATE NIGHT?

CONAN
Seth Green, Steven Ho, Demi Lovato

LETTERMAN
Tom Arnold, Tommy Johnagin, Metric

KIMMEL
Josh Lucas, Danica Patrick, Daughtry performs

FERGUSON

SATURDAY JULY 18th, 2009

POINT BREAK
Network:
FMC
Time: 8 – 10:30PM

Reasons to watch: It’s like The Fast and the Furious on water. And not sucky.

MAN VS. CARTOON
Network: truTV
Time: 10 – 11pm

Engineers attempt to build various devices invented by Wile E. Coyote such as a steel-plate trap that is rigged to a laser trip wire. Also a stuntman hurtles himself down a mountain in an "indestructo-ball." Now if only someone can work out the science as to why Betty is into Barney Rubble. Kinda out of his league, right?

THE COMEDY OF "FUNNY PEOPLE"
Network: HBO
Time: 11:30PM – 12AM

Reasons to watch: Needless to say that Judd Apatow has a pretty solid track record and his third film looks like it will not disappoint. Take a half hour to check out the process that the cast and crew needed to go through to successfully pull off the comedy that drives Funny People.
 

SUNDAY JULY 19th, 2009


Family Guy
Network:
FOX
Time: 9 – 9:30PM

Reasons to watch:Family Guy parodies the work of Stephen King with this humorous anthology. Why? Because a Halloween episode in July just seemed like too much of a stretch.


TRUE BLOOD
Network: HBO
Time: 9 – 10PM

I’M GONNA GIT YOU SUCKA
Network: IFC
Time: 9:30 – 11PM
