On TV this weekend


SEASON PREMIERE Who Do You Think You Are?, 8 p.m., NBC Vanessa Williams goes to D.C. and South Carolina to trace her roots. Why someone decided she was still hot enough to be on Desperate Housewives, however, remains a mystery.

Kitchen Nightmares, 8 p.m., Fox Gordon Ramsay goes to Queens to fix P.J.'s Steakhouse, an eatery designed to honor the memory of the owner's late brother. Hey, P.J. was a slob who couldn't cook or balance the books — just respect that fact.

Supernatural, 9 p.m., CW Sam and Dean head to a small town they were led to by coordinates in a mysterious text message. They also end up getting credit protection, run up lots of debt on a sex hotline and refinance their mortgage, because they listen to spam so intently.


Billy Gardell: Halftime, 9 p.m., Comedy Central The guy from Mike & Molly complains about all sorts of stuff you complain about. And here you thought it was football-related. Actually, football halftimes are one of our complaints.

Saturday Night Live, 11:30 p.m., NBC Dana Carvey hosts for the first time in a decade. No, he's still not working again. Lorne must have just felt sorry for him.


Puppy Bowl VII, 3 p.m., Animal Planet We know some real wing-dings who look forward to this event every year, more so than the game it's satirizing. The difference is, you can't watch the Super Bowl at a pet shop.

Super Bowl XLV, 6:30 p.m., Fox After Big Ben's scandalous offseason exploits, it's awfully hard not to root for Aaron Rodgers and the Pack Attack. Then again, the Steelers are a way more likable dynasty than the Patriots. Flip a coin.

Glee, 10:30 p.m., Fox After all the football fans have passed out from imbibing way too much during the game, the rest of you can watch cheerleaders in bikinis sing Katy Perry's California Gurls. That either sounds awesome to you, or you just started drinking more.

Reagan, 9 p.m., HBO The patron saint of the GOP would have been 100 on this day. Watch a doc that may remind you he raised taxes, ran up the deficit, expanded the federal government and gave amnesty to illegal aliens. Hey, don't write to us; those are just the facts.
