Best TV Power Hour 

KMOV-TV (Channel 4) Saturdays 11 p.m. to midnight

Another Saturday night and you ain't got nobody. You're broke, depressed and — worse yet — you drained your last beer an hour ago. You're about to cry yourself to sleep when all of a sudden it hits you like Poison: That jackass from work is on the television aping the lyrics to "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" on KMOV's Lucky Break — a low-budget, less-talented, American Idol knock-off produced at Harrah's Casino in Maryland Heights. Mesmerized by his abominable karaoke, you catch the last half-hour of the show — your self-esteem rising with each tone-deaf performer who struts onto the stage. But wait, there's more! As the camera fades to black, KMOV shoots you across the Mississippi River to Collinsville nightclub Wild Country. St. Louis Country features even more of your neighbors, friends and co-workers — only this time they're line dancing. Is this really how country-music fans dance? Or did a Western-wear store explode during a Bosnian wedding? Who's to say? And, frankly, you couldn't care less. It's midnight and you're on top of the world. Saturday night at home has never been so uplifting.
