Ah, the weekend, and not just any other weekend, either. With Tiger Woods driving his Escalade back to sex rehab after his press conference without the press this morning, we're gonna be hitting up every Perkins, Cracker Barrel, Waffle House, and Whole Foods cafeteria line between here and Pensacola trawling for trim (no, we don't usually refer to it as "trim" we just figure that's what Eldrick would call it).
And we know what you're going to ask next: "What's your normal post-white-trash-waitress-shtupping routine?" Duh! Watching TV of course, and luckily for us (and Candi, Hannah, Taylor, and Jolene, too), there's some great stuff on this weekend, as you'll see with the Complex TV Picks...
COMEDY: THE RICKY GERVAIS SHOW, HBO, 9 PM FRIDAY
• Gervais has been doing a radio show with fellow Brit funnymen Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington for nearly a decade, and tonight they take their act Stateside with a new animated series on HBO. The radio show is hilarious (granted in an English humour kind of way), and if the tv show isn't equally so, well, just go back to masturbating to repeats of Medium or whatever it is you do on Friday nights at 9.
COMEDY: REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER, HBO, 10 PM FRIDAY
• The 8th season of the
dude who tried to housewife Superheadpolitickin' comedian's show bows tonight with guests Wanda Sykes and Congressional Oversight Panel chair Elizabeth Warren, and panelists Seth MacFarlane, Norah O'Donnell, and this young lady's "Client-9."
COMEDY: RICHARD PRYOR: I AIN'T DEAD &*%$, COMEDY CENTRAL, MIDNIGHT, FRIDAY; AND DAVE CHAPPELLE: KILLIN' THEM SOFTLY, COMEDY CENTRAL, 1 AM, SATURDAY
• Perfect for your stumble-home-and-collapse-on-the-couch Friday night nightcap: the 2003 all-star tribute to Pryor featuring Chappelle, Chris Rock, Jon Stewart, and the King himself. Follow that with Chappelle's classic, classic, classic set from 2000 and you'll laugh yourself to sleep if you haven't passed out already. For best results record both and get home around 1:15, lest you forget what you're watching while channel surfing during commercials.
DRAMA: HOW TO MAKE IT IN AMERICA, HBO, 10 PM SUNDAY
• Lots of questions to be answered in the second episode of HBO's new series, the most pressing (against the inside of our pants) of which is: Will Lake Bell get naked?
SPORTS: OLYMPICS, MEN'S HOCKEY, RUSSIA VS. CZECH REPUBLIC, NBC, 3 PM ET SUNDAY
• This will be the first time a lot of hockey fans will have seen Czech's Jaromir Jagr in some time, as the former NHL superstar has been skating in the top Russian league for the past two years. The five-time NHL points leader did not disappoint in his first Olympic action early this week, and on Sunday he'll face off with Russia's Alexander Ovechkin in a matchup of marquee forwards. If hockey's not your speed (or too much speed for you), Kentucky's human highlight reel John Wall leads the no. 2 ranked Wildcats on the road against 17th-ranked SEC rival Vanderbilt (ESPN, 6 PM ET SATURDAY), and four of the NBA's powerhouses play Sunday, with the Cavs at the Magic at 1 ET and the Celtics at the Nuggets at 3:30 ET (both on ABC).
