On TV this week


SEASON FINALE The Lying Game, 9 p.m., ABC Family Oh, good, a TV wedding! Things always work out for the best at a TV wedding!

Bethenny Ever After, 9 p.m., Bravo Dr. Amador wants Bethenny and Jason to attend a couples workshop aboard his boat. Of course, the doctor would say that. Wait, is that code for something?

SERIES PREMIERE Love Broker, 10 p.m., Bravo It's like Millionaire Matchmaker, but without Patti Stanger or the millionaires. So that means it's watchable.

Hawaii Five-0, 10 p.m., CBS Patty Duke and Peter Fonda costar in an episode about searching for lost treasure. The treasure in this case, no doubt, is a continued acting career.


SERIES PREMIERE Diggers, 6 p.m., NatGeo KG and Ringy look to corner the market in buried treasure and Old West antiques in Montana, where that kind of business seems to be driving the local economy.

SEASON FINALE Jane by Design, 9 p.m., ABC Family Ben may keep Jane from getting her dream job. But Paulina Porizkova is guest-starring, so she will set him straight, we're sure.

SEASON PREMIERE Breaking In, 9:30 p.m., Fox Christian Slater's company is bought out by a big corporate team. Contra Security will now be ADT, and your bill will go up $8 per month for no good reason. Happened to Brinks, too.

Extreme Couponing: Holiday Hauls, 10 p.m., TLC The mere thought of Boxing Day sales must set the coupon clique on edge. There's so much couponing, you'd better get the ER on speed-dial.


SERIES PREMIERE Million Dollar Listing New York, 10 p.m., Bravo This spinoff from the L.A.-based series featured multimillion-dollar Manhattan homes. Or as Manhattanites call them, homes.

SERIES PREMIERE My Crazy Obsession, 10 p.m., TLC For all the people weird enough to get their own series, but not weird enough to require medical attention, TLC offers this. First up, a couple fixated on dolls and a woman enraptured by the color pink. Who do you think her favorite pop singer is?

Psych, 10 p.m., USA Lassiter moves into a condo that may be haunted. If only there were some way he could have been warned.

SEASON PREMIERE Happily Divorced, 10:30 p.m., TV Land Fran Drescher is back to make your teeth hurt yet again, and yep, her ex-husband is still gay. It's a one-joke show, really.


Saving Face, 8:30 p.m., HBO A Pakistani plastic surgeon living in London goes home to help repair the faces of women who have acid thrown in their faces, which apparently is a common occurrence among men who abuse their wives. Sounds like having access to plastic surgery is one the lesser problems in Pakistan.

Mudcats, 10 p.m., History Marion has to battle all comers and 100-degree heat to keep his title of catfish king. Oh, my god, why did I go to college to do this? Someone kill me, please.

The First 48, 10 p.m., A&E If you go back to 2005, you may have seen the episode about Terry Blair, who was convicted of killing six people. But now he's back to give you his side of the story, in case you didn't agree with the jury.

Inside Comedy, 11 p.m., Showtime David Steinberg interviews Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner, who get together every Wednesday night to watch movies at Reiner's house. It beats watching another episode of America's Next Top Model.


SEASON PREMIERE The Ultimate Fighter Live, 9 p.m., FX This MMA contest moves to FX, and is being shot and edited each week, with the contestants' fights aired live. Because we like our mayhem as uncensored as possible.

SEASON PREMIERE Fashion Police, 10 p.m., E! Joan Rivers, Kelly Osbourne, Giuliana Rancic and George Kotsiopoulos change it up a bit as they continue to trash what famous people are wearing. That studio must not have any mirrors in it.

Merlin, 10 p.m., SyFy Elyan is possessed by the spirit of a young, dead druid who makes him try to kill Arthur, since Arthur's dad killed druids. Is it St. Patrick's Day already?

The Dead Files, 10 p.m., Travel A guy calls Steve and Amy saying he was attacked by an evil spirit in Alcatraz 40 years ago. No, no, he's just watching The Rock with Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage on TNT.
