WEDNESDAY 6/2/10

There's a new episode of Mythbusters (8 PM, Discovery, "Fireball Stun Gun"). The M.B. team presumably build a, ahem, fireball stun gun. Sounds promising!

LATE NIGHT: Evangeline Lily is on Craig Ferguson (12:30, CBS).

THURSDAY 6/3/10

On Comedy Central, they're playing the two-hour entirety of Futurama: Bender's Big Score beginning at 8 PM. I presume this is to get viewers amped up for the Futurama return later this month. Thank Hanukkah Zombie!

FRIDAY 6/4/10

On Stargate Universe (9 PM, SyFy, "Incursion"), it's the beginning of the two-part season finale. The Destiny crew is under attack and must make some dire choices before the season is out.

One AMC, there's a doubleheader of subpar horror flicks Pet Semetary (8 PM) and They (10 PM). This is strictly drinking game viewing. WALL*E is on Encore at 8 PM. Death Race is on HBO at 8 PM. Jason Statham is so damn grizzled.

On a new Doctor Who (9 PM, BBCA, "Amy's Choice"), The Doctor brings Amy to the night before her first child is born.

There's a doubleheader of pandemic-themed flicks on AMC: Virus (8 PM) and Outbreak. Evil Dead 2 is on IFC at midnight. Bikini Frankenstein is on Cinemax at 12:35 AM. The synopsis? A Transylvanian scientist brings a sexy lady back from the dead. It's definitely not going to be on the same level as Frankenhooker, but hey, it could be up your alley.

District 9 is on Starz at 9 PM.
