On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

The Cheetah Girls One World, 8 p.m., Disney The trio (minus Raven-Symoné) head to Bollywood in their latest movie to show us what over-the-top musical numbers are really like.

SERIES PREMIERE Project Earth, 9 p.m., Discovery Eight scientists are going to weigh in with how they think we should fight global warming, and this series puts those plans to the test. Our plan: Outlaw the two-party system.

Monk, 9 p.m., USA Leave it to Monk to finally fall in love, only to find out she's the suspect in a murder case. Those bloodstains are hard to get out.

SERIES PREMIERE Who Are You Wearing?, 10 p.m., TLC Imagine Project Runway with less-talented designers and even lesser-talented judges. Wait, that would make it America's Got Talent.

SATURDAY

My Super Sweet 16: Exiled Launch Special, 1 p.m., MTV Seven hours of watching spoiled tramps illustrate the decline of Western civilization. We mention this so you can avoid MTV all day.

SERIES PREMIERE Making It Home: Greensburg, 7 p.m., TLC One series about Greensburg isn't enough, so now some people from Trading Spaces show up to get in on the act. It's like a comic-book crossovers, but without the superheroes.

SUNDAY

Little League World Series Championship, 3:30 p.m., ABC Watch and remember this was the last year games were played in Gulfport. Sigh.

Olympics: Closing Ceremony, 7 p.m., NBC Our time in Beijing is coming to an end. It's a shame that we won't have good news to look forward to anymore, but at least we'll be able to get more sleep.

SERIES FINALE Generation Kill, 9 p.m., HBO If there's one thing this blood-curdling show HAS taught us, it's that war is.

SERIES PREMIERE Z Rock, 11:30 p.m., IFC Some musicians moonlight from their day jobs as kids' entertainers by being rockers, which is about as believable as that '80s cartoon series Jem.
