Weekend To-Do List: Indoor Independence EditionI found this article on what do do if you don't want to go out for the 4th of July
Traditionally, we celebrate July 4 by going outside, grilling animal flesh, and watching things explode, but if you've had enough of the crazy-hot, crazy-wet weather that's plagued much of the country over the past couple weeks, we've found plenty of ways to celebrate the holiday... indoors.
A lot of specials on TV, of course:
-Sunday brings a live Prairie Home Companion special (PBS, 9 p.m.) that includes fictional big-screen PHC-er Meryl Streep (but alas, no Lindsay Lohan).
-On Tuesday, you can celebrate A Capital Fourth, in which such cuddly Americans as Jason Alexander, Stevie Wonder, and Elmo (pictured) watch fireworks in Washington, D.C. (PBS, 8 p.m.)
-Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular, featuring similarly cuddly Nick Lachey, Lionel Richie, Liza Minnelli, and Bo Bice performing in New York (NBC, 9 p.m.)
-An American Celebration at Ford's Theatre, a pre-taped variety show at the site of Lincoln's assassination, featuring Tom Selleck, Kevin Nealon, Bush impersonator Steve Bridges, and Lonestar (ABC, 10 p.m.)-The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, in which cannons fired over Boston during the ''1812 Overture'' will fail to dislodge emcee Dr. Phil (CBS, 10 p.m.).
