Monday, January 18 (Martin Luther King Day)

SCIFI Channel, 3:00am
The Creature Walks Among Us
Prehistoric gillman really doesn't need those gills, does he?  The

remake of the original Creature movie is in development.

Discovery Channel, 9:00pm
The Extinction Files

make dinosaur evolution *never happen.*  No, seriously, this purports
to be about living fossils -- creatures that have undergone little
evolutionary development in millions of years.

TBS, 5:05pm
Full House
This must be a cartoon or a sitcom, but it's another example of

collision with a dinosaur skeleton.  Must happen a lot.

And explosive radiating growth"
