What’s On This Weekend: Friday, September 18th thru Sunday, September 20th

Friday, September 18 by
What to watch this weekend? The 61st I Couldn’t Care Less Awards or a direct-to-DVD sequel to Waiting? Maybe I’ll do the unthinkable and just read a book.
 
CHECK OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP
 
NOTE: ALL TIMES EASTERN & PACIFIC!!!

 
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18th, 2009
 
WASSUP ROCKERS
Network: IFC
Time: 7:15 – 9PM
 
Reasons to watch: Larry Clark’s Wassup Rockers tells the story of a group of Guatemalan American and Salvadorian American teens who eschew the gang culture surrounding them in South Central LA and instead listen to punk music and ride skateboards. When reached for comment, Jerry Bruckheimer said, "Great. Once they’re done skating in my pool, they can landscape the area surrounding it."
 
THE MIST
Network: Showtime
Time: 8:45 – 10:45PM
 
Reasons to watch: Frank Darabont‘s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Mist is that rare mix of a "Stephen King movie" and "not sucking."

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19th, 2009
 
THE ENFORCER
Network: ION
Time: 9 – 11PM
 
Reasons to watch: Dirty Harry Callahan gets bumped down from the Homicide Unit to Personnel in this third film of the series. But they may as well have bumped him down to janitor because he’s going to mop up every piece of filth in this God-forsaken city.
 
STILL WAITING
Network: Comedy Central
Time: 9 – 11PM
 
Reasons to watch: Wait a minute. A sequel to the movie that I’ll never be drunk enough to watch? When did this slippery little bitch slip past my crapdar? I know that the producers are aiming this at the drunk and stoner crowd but I’d need to self-asphyxiate while injecting grain alcohol directly into my brain stem as I’m snorting Tommy Chong’s beard-druff before I’d be able to so much as giggle at this cinematic wet fart. In other words, I’ll pass.
 
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 20th, 2009
 
61st PRIMETIME EMMYS
Network: CBS
Time: 8 – 11PM
 
Reasons to watch: Neil Patrick Harris hosts the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards. I won’t be watching. I’m still upset about the Homeboys In Outer Space snub from all those years back.
 
MADMEN
Network: A&E
Time: 10 – 11PM

Reasons to watch: Sally gets spooked by someone or something. My guess is that it’s either a pirate ghost or Pedobear.
