On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

SEASON PREMIERE Who Do You Think You Are?, 8 p.m., NBC This season explores the familial past of Marisa Tomei, Blair Underwood, Reba McEntire, Rob Lowe, Helen Hunt and, tonight, Martin Sheen. That lineup is way more impressive than last year.

The Life & Times of Tim, 9 p.m., HBO Tim goes leaf-peeping in Vermont with Amy, Stu and Stu's new girlfriend. The Vermonters are already rolling their eyes.

Paul Mooney: The Godfather of Comedy, 9 p.m., Showtime A new special from this master of insult comedy. If only we could be degraded half as well during the course of our day …

Spartacus: Vengeance, 10 p.m., Starz Spartacus liberates a villa in which the slaves were actually okay with their lifestyle. Solution: Make them all your slaves, Sparty.

SATURDAY

Secrets of Eden, 8 p.m., Lifetime John Stamos as an adulterous (and possibly murderous) minister. That's worth breaking our "No Lifetime Movies Ever" rule!

SEASON PREMIERE Unfaithful: Stories of Betrayal, 9 p.m., OWN It's kind of like a cross between Cheaters and Maury, but Oprah signed off on it, so it's all good.

NFL Honors, 9 p.m., NBC Because when we think natural hosts for awards show for NFL players, Alec Baldwin is the first name that comes to mind.

SUNDAY

Puppy Bowl VIII, 3 p.m., Animal Planet A bird will be tweeting the action for all of you this year. So at least that poor dingbat in the ref outfit isn't completely by himself.

Super Bowl XLVI, 6 p.m., NBC Will the New York Football Giants of New Jersey defeat the New England of Boston Patriots for the second time in four years? Will Eli Manning beat out Tom Brady as the Most Clutch VIP Quarterback in the History of Forever? Will Madonna prove the halftime show only gets washed-up musicians to play because Justin Timberlake's grabby hands ruined it all? Will the commercials finally start being good again? These questions and more will be answered.

Jimmy Fallon's Super Bowl Special, 11:30 p.m., NBC There's no way this thing will actually start at 11:30, especially if the running game gets shut down for both teams.
