On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Whale Wars: Viking Shores, 9 p.m., Animal Planet The Sea Shepherd faces off against the Faeroe Islands to stop natives who have been whaling for centuries. Because tribes who take part in sustainable whaling as a means to maintain their cultural heritage are the real problem.

Fairly Legal, 9 p.m., USA Ben and Justin fight over the plea bargain for a performance artist who jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge. Wait, the guy lived?

CSI: NY, 9 p.m., CBS A community is rocked when a dismembered body is spread out over four key locations. As long as they aren't fast-food joints, we don't see what the big deal is.

SATURDAY

Space Twister, 9 p.m., SyFy As if the Alien Tornado wasn't bad enough, here are more storms from outer space. How that works is anyone's guess, but after Mansquito, we kind of quit worrying about the tech side of things.

MINISERIES PREMIERE Cloudstreet, 10 p.m., Ovation A period drama about two families sharing homes, adapted from Tim Winton's novel. We hope they can avoid the space twister.

SEASON PREMIERE The Thick of It, Midnight, BBC America The guy who made Veep brings more Scottish politics to the small screen. That's way more entertaining than even Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

SUNDAY

SEASON FINALE The Good Wife, 9 p.m., CBS All sorts of things are going down, with Louis and Patti teaming up to fight Lockhart & Gardner, Alicia and Peter fending off Mike Kresteva and Kalinda's past being revealed. Well, being hinted at, anyway.

TV Land Awards, 9 p.m., TV Land Kelly Ripa hosts a bunch of awards for TV shows I used to watch when I was a kid, like In Living Color and Pee-wee's Playhouse. Too bad it doesn't start at 7 p.m. so I can watch it in bed.

SEASON FINALE Ice Loves Coco, 10:30 p.m., E! Finally, the show shows off Coco's puppies! As in, Spartacus the bulldog's puppies. What were you thinking?

SEASON PREMIERE Metalocalypse, 12:15 a.m., Cartoon Who would have guessed this bizarre, foul-mouthed riff on death-metal stereotypes would have lasted four seasons? That's one for each horseman.
