Hair of the Frog 

The WB gets spooky ’n’ kooky with Kevin Williamson’s Glory Days.

Going from playing Jennifer Aniston’s mop-headed personal assistant/boy toy on Friends to starring in your own post-Dawson’s Creek drama is a hell of a demotion, but at least actor Eddie Cahill got a snazzy new Frog Network haircut out of the deal.

Tube StopsThursday, Jan. 10: Survivor: Africa (CBS, 7 p.m.) Two-Hour Season Finale: The final four battle it out for the ultimate prize: $1 million and the satisfaction of sending Richard Hatch further into the bowels of obscurity. The Family Guy Marathon (Fox, 7-9 p.m.) Yeah, like it really matters ...

Friday, Jan. 11: The Chronicle (Sci-Fi Channel, 7 p.m.) New Timeslot: Tucker and Wes track down brain-dead mutant apes bent on chaos, destruction and spiking the SoundScan figures of Creed’s new album.

Saturday, Jan. 12: That’s Life (CBS, 8 p.m.) New Timeslot: What do you do to help a good-but-struggling TV show attract more viewers? Move it to Saturday night, when no one’s watching! Brilliant! Now that Survivor’s over, CBS can afford to give real programming the screw-job! Genius!

Sunday, Jan. 13: The Jamie Kennedy Experiment (The WB, 8 p.m.) Series Debut: The Scream guy crosses Spy TV with wacky improv comedy! Two hellish tortures brought together! The Jamie Kennedy Experiment (The WB, 9:30 p.m.) Series Debut ... Again: Oh, joy!

Monday, Jan. 14: Movie: Monday Night Mayhem (2002, TNT, 10 p.m.) The mostly-true story of Monday Night Football, Howard Cosell, Don Meredith, Frank Gifford and the worst hair ever perpetuated on TV.

Tuesday, Jan. 15: First Monday (CBS, 8 p.m.) Series Debut: Joe Mantegna and James Garner star as wrinkly Supreme Court Justices who are mistaken for corpses and planted in a Pacific Northwest body farm.

Wednesday, Jan. 16: The Job (ABC, 8:30 p.m.) Season Premiere: One of the coolest shows on TV is back! NYPD detective Denis Leary pops pills, drinks, womanizes and roughs up perps. A true American hero.

  • Be Fair, Frost

    This is a society where, on one side, fad diets and unreasonable surgeries are embraced to control weight loss and, on the other side, we are presented with unrealistic, size-zero beauty. It is refreshing to have a show that presents the undeni- able fact that healthy diet and exercise are the keys.
