TV: Friday Hot List
The Olympics continue to dominate with most of the other networks putting their primetime shows on hiatus. Figure skating, alpine skiing, skeleton and ski jumping air tonight. In ice dancing, the U.S. has two teams contending while skiers Bode Miller and Ted Ligety compete in the men's Super G final.
Ricky Gervais' wildly popular podcast The Ricky Gervais Show turns into an HBO animated series beginning this evening. It basically features Ricky, Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington discussing a variety of unusual topics including population control, supernatural events and prehistoric times. One thing you can count on is hilarity to ensue.
And, on What Not To Wear, Stacy and Clinton have their work cut out for them when they makeover a 38-year-old professor with a penchant for mom jeans. We have a sneaking suspicion that those jeans are going straight to the garbage can!
