Daily Picks For Saturday August 16 and Sunday 17, 2008

by Lauren Gitlin August 16, 2008 6:00 am
Anybody? Anybody? Anybody? Anybody? You've watched it a million and one times, so there's no reason for you not to make today a million and two ... I'm speaking of course of Ferris Bueller's Day Off (HBO Family, Saturday 1 PM).

Despite the fact that this show is actually the most boring thing ever, I am strangely transfixed by the non-action of The Hills. It's specifically because nothing of note ever seems to transpire that I find it amusing that MTV's created a special, Drama In The Hills: The Top 10 Most Memorable Moments Ever (MTV, Saturday 1 PM). Needless to say, I will be watching, riveted.

I suppose I should do my patriotic duty and tell you to watch the XXIX Summer Olympics (NBC, Saturday 7:30 PM), which will be airing swimming and track and field events tonight. In the words of Liz Lemon, can we have our money now?

BBC has this new show called Skins (BBC America, 9 PM) that's being billed as the British Gossip Girl. That's quite a staggering claim in my opinion, but the promos mention something about parental discretion, which is always a good sign in my book. Two new episodes air back to back tonight.

The Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget (Comedy Central, Sunday 10 PM) is gonna be good you guys. Just ask Mindy!

Obviously you will be watching a new episode of Mad Men (AMC, Sunday 10 PM) tonight, unless you have something better to do. Which is impossible, FYI.
