What to Watch: Doctor Who In Review, Boss Is Besotted, the Top Models Get Stuffed and More

Get More: Previews, What to Watch

On TV this Friday: Tardy Doctor Whovians can catch up with a marathon of past seasons, Boss follows his… heart, The Hills are alive (at least for the weekend) and Top Model documents the first time in history a model’s ever been stuffed. Here are eight programs to look out for tonight.

7 am Friday – 5 am Saturday Doctor Who marathon (BBC America) | Before Season 7 starts tomorrow at 8 pm, settle in for Seasons 5 and 6, plus the specials Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol (10 pm), The Science of Doctor Who (11 pm), The Women of Doctor Who (midnight), The Timey-Wimey of Doctor Who (1 am), The Destinations of Doctor Who (2 am), Doctor Who: The Best of the Monsters (3 am) and Doctor Who: The Best of the Doctor (4 am). Doctor whew!

12:48 pm – 9 pm Sunday The Hills marathon (MTV) | Harken back to a more innocent time when we were just meeting people like Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt and MTV’s Laguna Beach spin-off – which airs this weekend in its six-season entirety — seemed like it might actually be for real.

For more Labor Day weekend marathons, check back later today for a special edition of What to Watch.

  • All this time, wrestling was not only fake, but it turns out that it was science fiction all along! Amazing! Given characters like the Undertaker and Papa Shango I thought it was fantasy.

  • “90210’s Shenae Grimes shoots the models..:” With a gun, right? ‘Cause if her acting talents translate into photography, she has no business being there.

    Anyway, I’m probably the first person to mention these shows in the same sentence, but – Boss and Top Model for me, yeah.

  • BBC America is actually showing all of Season 5 (including the Christmas special) today. Then they’re showing all the specials. Then all of Seaon 6 (and the Christmas special) airs tomorrow.

  • I am so excited for Doctor Who and I’m not even close to caught up on the show. I’m still on Season 3. But knowing that five more episodes will be waiting for me — ahh!
