PITBULLS AND PAROLEES
Network:
Animal Planet
Time: 10 – 11PM

Reasons to watch: A group of Renaissance-fair actors want to add a dog to their skitches. This is your best chance of seeing a jester get his nuts bit tonight. You’d be a fool to pass it up.

 

LIVE AT GOTHAM
Network:
Comedy Central
Time: 11PM – Midnight

Reasons to watch: The very funn Paul F. Tompkins hosts the very funny Nick Kroll and a slew of other talented comics. How funny could it be? Think of how mad The Jeff Dunham Show makes you feel. This will make you feel the opposite of that.

AUSTIN CITY LIMITS
Network:
PBS
Time: 8 – 9PM

SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE
Network:
NBC

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 8th, 2009


FAMILY GUY
Network:
Fox
Time: 8 – 8:30PM

Reasons to watch: Peter goes around kicking everyone after watching Road House. I can totally relate. I wore ladies underpants for years after seeing To Wong Foo Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar. Aw dammit, diarrhea of the mouth again. Where’s the backspace key on this infernal machine?

 

MAD MEN
Network:
AMC
Time: 10 – 11PM

Reasons to watch:Break out the chip n’ dip and enjoy an Old Fashioned as you view the third season finale. Once finished, stow your retro 60′s kitsch fancies away in the back of your closet until next season. And then dust off your Dharma Initiative flatware for January’s Lost premiere.
