On TVthis weekend


Neil Diamond: Hot August Night: NYC, 8 p.m., CBS Want to sing Sweet Caroline in your jammies while eating that tub of ice cream all alone on a Friday night? Now you have video to accompany you.

Woodstock: Now & Then, 9 p.m., VH1 We get it already, mom and dad: You all got high and slept in filth for three days while some music played in the background. Can we move on, already?

SEASON FINALE Mental, 8 p.m., Fox a man who says he's a werewolf takes the psych ward hostage. At least they will probably believe him.


SERIES PREMIERE Househusbands of Hollywood, 9 p.m., Fox Reality Remember Thursday's story about being "famesque" — famous for no good reason? Tempestt Bledsoe and Jillian Reynolds qualify already, but now their husbands get a show. Whaaaa?

The Terminators, 9 p.m., SyFy Is this a movie about humans fighting cyborgs, or a network flying off the tracks and getting sued for copyright infringement. It'll take two hours to tell us.


SERIES PREMIERE 2 Months, $2 Million, 9 p.m., G4 Four poker players in their 20s move into a Vegas apartment together. Sounds like our own post-college arrangements.

SEASON PREMIERE Mad Men, 10 p.m., AMC Season 3 is here, for all of you who love your womanizin' and alcoholism. Personally, it's good simply to see Christina Hendricks back on the screen. But don't tell the wife that's why we watch it.

SERIES PREMIERE Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, 10 p.m., E! Speaking of famesque, Kim Kardashian's sisters — the short one and the sasquatch — get their own show. And one of them is pregnant (read about that on Page 64). What did they do to deserve this, again?

SERIES PREMIERE My Antonio, 10 p.m., VH1 Soap opera star searches for a mate in Hawaii, choosing from 13 contestants. Because 13 is a lucky number, right?
