On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Swamp'd!, 8 p.m., Animal Planet Ever want to know what happens at a Louisiana bayou bait shop? You're gonna find out.

Undercover Boss, 8 p.m., CBS The chief marketing and customer officer for ADT learns what workers in his company are like. You mean they aren't all ex meth addicts who constantly try to upsell you on the number of sensors they can charge you for?

Fashion Star, 8 p.m., NBC The designers have to prove themselves in one of their weak areas, which no doubt will cause endless complaints. They didn't come here to improve themselves, just to wow you with their meager skills!

SERIES PREMIERE Da Vinci's Demons, 10 p.m., Starz Comic-book movie writing vet David S. Goyer takes on the legendary artist/inventor/scholar dealing with bar fights, opium addiction and nude models. That's what the Mona Lisa is smiling about.

SERIES FINALE Spartacus: War of the Damned, 11 p.m., Starz It's time for the final battle between Spartacus and his slave army and Crassus and the Roman legions. Not to spoil anything for you, but 6,000 slaves ended up crucified along the Appian Way, so don't go expecting a happy ending.

SATURDAY

Louis C.K.: Oh My God, 10 p.m., HBO Watch a standup special by a guy who's FX show was so popular, he took a break from doing it because he didn't want it to suck. That's the level of genius we're talking about here.

SERIES PREMIERE Life with Latoya, 10:30 p.m., OWN Want proof Oprah Winfrey is desperate to increase ratings on her network? She let La Toya Jackson have a show about trying to start a family (apparently with her late brother Michael's kids, no less).

Saturday Night Live, 11:30 p.m., NBC Is it too late to make a "Vince Vaughan's eyes are so baggy" joke? Because it has something to do with being on TV so late.

SUNDAY

2013 MTV Movie Awards, 9 p.m., MTV If you've never heard of Australian comedian and host Rebel Wilson before, don't write her off just yet. MTV is the network that gave us Russell Brand, and he ended up marrying Katy Perry.

SEASON PREMIERE The Borgias, 10 p.m., Showtime Every time we see Jeremy Irons in this historical drama, we can't help but remember him as Profion in Dungeons & Dragons. Yeah, pretend he's Rodrigo now, chumps.
