On TV this weekend


A New Age of Exploration: National Geographic at 125, 8 p.m., NatGeo An anniversary special looking back at the organization that taught us what the word quasquicentennial means.

Merlin, 10 p.m., SyFy Merlin and Arthur attempt to free the slaves under Morgana's castle, with the help of a spirit Morgana is seeking. That'll be quite the happy-hour mixer when those two meet.

SERIES PREMIERE Banshee, 10 p.m., Cinemax An escaped convict hides in a small Pennsylvania town and assumes the identity of the sheriff, then tangles with crazy Amish gangsters. We think they already have a show called Amish Mafia.


The 2013 Miss America Competition, 9 p.m., ABC After the United States won the Miss Universe contest, we're now poised to give a second American a pageant win. Odds are 3-2 in favor.

SERIES PREMIERE Cyndi Lauper: Still So Unusual, 9 p.m., WEtv As if Cyndi wasn't irritating enough to listen to back in the '80s, now we can all sit through her and her accent doing mundane things like watching an episode of Bones. No, really. So much for having any fun.


The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, 8 p.m., NBC The warmup to the Oscars won't feature Ricky Gervais skewering all the self-important freakshows in attendance, but luckily someone picked Amy Poehler and Tina Fey to do that this year. All the put-downs will be so erudite, most of the crowd probably won't even realize they got burned.

SEASON PREMIERE Girls, 9 p.m., HBO We know Lena Dunham has skills, all right? We know this. But you do realize you're praising a show that's about privileged white girls who are mad they aren't just handed everything after college, right? We hope so. Oh, and to counteract claims that Dunham is racist, she gave herself a black boyfriend on the show. Done and done.

SEASON PREMIERE Enlightened, 9:30 p.m., HBO Amy meets a nice journalist who is willing to help her. There are a couple things wrong with that sentence.

SEASON PREMIERE House of Lies, 10 p.m., Showtime Sexual harassment scandals ruin all the office fun. Journalists will help you with that.
