SATURDAY

"Jack's Family Adventure" (8 p.m., Hallmark): A workaholic ad man (Jonathan Silverman) learns important life and family lessons from a cowboy (Peter Strauss). Is the Hallmark Channel recommended by the Vatican yet?

"Curb Appeal: The Block" (8:30 p.m., HGTV): Owners of brick ranch homes, this one's for you.

"The Abominable Dr. Phibes" (9 p.m., WCIU-Channel 26): Enjoy the horrific stylings of Vincent Price, Joseph Cotton and Hugh Griffith in this 1971 tale of vengeance. Carolyn Munroe plays Phibes' dead wife by "lying perfectly still and not having to memorize any lines," notes Svengoolie.

"Pit Boss" (9 p.m, Animal Planet): In a new episode, the crew investigates whether a pit bull is involved in dogfighting. Shorty to the rescue!

SUNDAY

"Revenge of the Bridesmaids" (7 p.m., ABC Family): Raven-Symone and JoAnna Garcia serve as bridesmaids, but only to sabotage the wedding. Fun fact: Garcia ("Privileged") has been a bridesmaid herself five times, and is planning her own wedding to New York Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher.

"Leverage" (8 p.m., TNT): Trekkers and good ol' boys, rejoice! Jonathan Frakes directs guest star John Schneider.

"Strange Sex" (9 p.m., TLC): Freaks, rejoice! It's now a series, kicking off with a 73-year-old woman and her 33-year-old date. Followed by an episode titled "Unusual Orgasms."

"Chicago Stand-Up Project" (9:30 p.m., WTTW-Channel 11): Featuring Olympic speedskater Shani Davis and meteorologist Amy Freeze.

Hey, Shorty, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? You and your employees could have gotten killed and it would not have been pretty....those types of people that make money the way they do, would stop at nothing. You have the Good Lord totally in your corners, as well as your employees, or there would not be anyone around to save these, what seems to me like loving and beautiful animals. Anyway, settling things the "ghetto" way and not informing the cops of the address of that place? I would have turned them in wiht the bat of an eye and WOULD HAVE TOLD NO ONE, I MEAN, NO ONE, about it. The one that called seeming like he is your "buddy," well, he was right there with the other watching these poor animals being tortured. Look at Michael Vick? How soon they forget.....now they are cheering for him as he runs with the ball, I accidently stumbled upon a horrendous pitbull fight while living 3-months in Mexico as a travel agent helping tourists in Acapulco, and while venturing off on my own (NEVER DO THAT) I heard these horrid sounds and I RAN down the street to the nearest cab. It even states in the Bible about mistreating the animals. You know what? Everything Jesus (God) says, well, I'm going to take that VERY SERIOUSLY. Love your show, Shorty, Sebastian is a doll, and Ronald needs to leave the pity party out of his life and be thankful he is on this great shoe and TV. Still, he is a very nice person, and all of the office compliments each other....and, Ashley? What a little doll. Frankly, she would make a fantastic stand up comedian, people love to truly laugh and need to laugh, and when someone can make them truly laugh out loud, it is a gift from God.

Please, Shorty, remember, you said it...you broke you number 1 rule:


DON'T BE STUPID!!"

Sincerly, Patty
