Death and perfection

Luke Stuckmeyer plays host. On a cheerier note, CSNC gives White Sox fans a Thanksgiving treat by rerunning Mark Buehrle's perfect game at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 26. At very least, be sure to catch DeWayne Wise's perfection-preserving grab at the end. What better way to rest and digest a turkey feast?

Death & imperfection

"Death Proof" might just be Quentin Tarantino's worst movie - which only means it's in the bottom half of the all-time Waste Watcher Top 10. Former child star Kurt Russell is Mr. T's reclamation project this time around, amid a bevy of B-movie beauties. It's at 9 p.m., rerun at midnight, today on MTV.
