Booze Dancing TV Listings for the Week of April 6 – 13

Booze Dancing TV

Programming on the Booze Dancing Television Network for the week of April 6-13.  All times are EST but your mileage may vary. Please note that due to the potential writer’s union strike, all programming may be, without notice, substituted with a very pretty, geometric, and mesmerizing test pattern with a slowly spinning Booze Dancing logo embedded with clever and rather pithy tweet-like glib phrases as well as images of naked ladies taken from NBC when they had similar labor issues way back when.

6:00 pm  The Booze Dancing News – Weekend Edition. Talking bobbleheads Sharon Myles and Dave Summers. There’s no news on the weekend so this is really two hours of “information” on farmer’s markets, street fairs, road closures, free concerts, 5k runs, and restaurant reviews of places you’ll never go, and movie reviews of films you’ll never see until they’re On Demand or on an airplane.

8:00 pm  America’s Test Distillery. Food. The staff takes all the over-priced, worthless, bizarre grains they can find at at Whole Foods back to the test distillery to make really awful whiskey. What will beat out last week’s Engineered wood flooring smoked Single Malt Couscous Whiskey finished in peppermint Schnapps?! Also, a new narcissistic staff member is added to replace the old one who left to start GlenMe Distillery.

8:30 pm  America’s Test Marketing Department. Food. The design staff makes ultra-retro cool labels for bottling really awful whiskey from the show at 8:00 pm, then gets the “product” on the website faster that you can say “make me a Red Edison with really Awful Whiskey, barrel aged bacon bitters and a dash of ennui; over helium-infused iced.”

9:00 pm  PIZZA!  Food.  Award winning series featuring the very best annoying, arrogant chefs showcasing their handmade, craft, artisanal, paleo, cardboard tasting pizza. Tonight, Chef Antoine bakes a pie covered in urban herb-crusted shrimp with pineapple, Peruvian goat cheese, garlic yak testicles, and organic crabgrass in his new hybrid nuclear-powered pizza oven with the latest in Iranian Mini-Reactor® technology. Please watch this one from at least 8′ from your television, and stay the hell away if you have a pacemaker or iPhone 4S.

10:00 pm  Booze Dancing CSI. Drama. Special Agent Aaron digs deep into the whereabouts of a missing tweet that is masked in sarcasm and irony.  The CSI team writes a super duper hard algorithm to search Deep Twitter and uncovers the underside of the depths of the bowels of the underbelly of Twitter, and it isn’t pretty. Parental guidance suggested, but not enforced.

11:00 pm  The Booze Dancing Weekend News. Talking bobbleheads Sharon Summers and Dave Myles.


7:00 am  BDTV Sunday Morning. Magazine. Thoughtful pieces with plenty of scenes inside bars, mini-micro breweries and distilleries, and sounds of liquid, presumably whisky and beer, running a tad loudly almost like there’s a plumbing problem. Expect frequent bathroom runs.

8:00 am  BDTV This Week. Magazine. Segments on British film maker Nigel Nigellson; the science of deep-fried craft beers; the art of cocktail napkins; the love of peat; the essence of hops; the innocence of yeast; the vapidness of evaporation; the dog days of summer.

9:00 am  BoozeNews. News. News, discussion, analysis from the week of booze and dancing, without the dancing. Guests: Sen. Jason Lewis on the pending legislation to allow craft distilleries to sell swill and call it “single malt swill”. Saskatoon Mayor Michael Carter and the effects of the black market faux rye trade in Saskatchewan. Round table discussion with Miracle Max, Limpd, G-LO, Wayne Gretzky.

10:00 am  It’s Sunday so Sports, Reading the Newspaper, More Sports, Craft Beer, Sleeping, Sandwich Shop, Not Doing Anything Else Really, Whisky. Anthology. 6+ hours seems about right but that ain’t gonna happen. What are you thinking? Enjoy what’s left of the weekend, jeez.

4:00 pm  Put It On Our Tab. Community Affairs. Host Hector Cohen-Kalayjian looks at the civic issues in our fair city that effects us all like why does Mikey’s Wine & Spirits Emporium only employ burly white women with tattoos of barrels, anchors, motorcycles, socket wrenches, AR15s, and bunnies when my cousin Harold really needs a job? Also, the new law banning barrel-aged chocolate milk in our schools is discussed with Superintendent Dwight Chamberlain and Magruder Elementary student, Kelsey (11).

5:00 pm  The Booze Dancing Weekend News. Talking bobbleheads Sharon Summers and Dave Myles.
