On TV this weekend


The Finder, 8 p.m., Fox This show has a new night and time, but with luck you didn't need Walter to tell you that. Also: 50 Cent shows up as a music bigwig who wants to find out how his songs are getting distributed. Don't worry, Fiddy, every kid in America is just stealing them.

Who Do You Think You Are?, 8 p.m., NBC Edie Falco goes looking for the reason why she went from The Sopranos to Nurse Jackie. Surprise! She's mostly English, not Italian.

Blue Bloods, 10 p.m., CBS Donnie Wahlberg reopens the case of a firefighter's suicide at the request of the man's 12-year-old son. What, you gonna tell him no?

SERIES PREMIERE Magic City, 10 p.m., Starz A period drama following the owner of a luxury hotel in 1950s Miami Beach who stresses out constantly. If nothing else, the real estate investment was sound.


SEASON PREMIERE Shark Men, 8 p.m., NatGeo The boys are still tagging great whites. We are still enamored with giant fish that can eat us.

SEASON FINALE Q'Viva! The Chosen, 8 p.m., Fox Oh, this Jennifer Lopez/Marc Anthony series is over, all right.

SEASON PREMIERE Texas Women, 9 p.m., CMT Let's see ... will there be barbecue and country music this season? We can always hope.

Holy Flying Circus, 10 p.m., Ovation A docudrama about how Monty Python dealt with people freaking out over Life of Brian. Possibly the most creative thing on television this weekend.

Saturday Night Live, 11:39 p.m., NBC Finally, they let Sofia Vergara host. Every skit should be about difficult-to-understand accents and tight clothes.


Titanic: The Final Word With James Cameron, 8 p.m., NatGeo We get to see if Jim's billion-dollar-movie is still accurate. Hint: It's just a movie, folks.

SEASON PREMIERE Chopped All Stars, 9 p.m., Food Iron Chefs fight it out for charity. Why not just cook for the victims your charity is for? They'd probably really appreciate it.

SERIES PREMIERE Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On, 9 p.m., TV Guide They were just here in concert and they have a new album, so why not give Chynna, Carnie and Wendy their own show? Because they're from the '90s, that's why.

SEASON PREMIERE The Big C, 9:30 p.m., Showtime Gabourey Sidibe is back from Ghana with a new African name and we find out if Oliver Platt is really dead. Cancer is hilarious!

SERIES PREMIERE The Client List, 10 p.m., Lifetime Jennifer Love Hewitt gets a job at a day spa that really is one of "those" massage parlors. Times have been tough since The Ghost Whisperer was canceled.
