On TV this weekend


Supernanny, 8 p.m., ABC Jo, we appreciate your attempts to bring civility to the chaos of reality TV, but when some 25-year-old layabout sits around her mom's house all day, making her parents raise her kids, you need to bring out the whoopin' stick.

Law & Order, 8 p.m., NBC A journalist is found dead and The Daily Show's Samantha Bee stars as a daytime talk-show host.

SEASON PREMIERE The Singing Bee, 9 p.m., CMT It's like Don't Forget The Lyrics!, but on CMT. And it's back for a second season for everyone who can't find Fox on their cable boxes.

The 15th Annual Critics Choice Movie Awards, 9 p.m., VH1 Because everyone is a critic with the advent of Internet ratings, shouldn't this just be the People's Choice Awards? Kristin Chenoweth hosts this B-level awards show during which Hollywood takes a one-night break from hating critics.

SEASON FINALE Sanctuary, 9 p.m., Syfy The team looks into a cult for the Hindu goddess Kali, but all they find are some middle-aged professor, a showgirl and an annoying Chinese kid.


House of Bones, 9 p.m., Syfy A house is built with bones buried in its walls. Whew, we thought you were going to say it was built with Chinese drywall.

SERIES PREMIERE Pit Boss, 10 p.m., Animal Planet A 4-foot-tall actor and his gang of vertically challenged pals rescue pit bulls for a living. We feel like there should be a punchline somewhere in there.

Saturday Night Live, 11:30 p.m., NBC Sigourney Weaver hosts to drum up support for Avatar. Boy, is that movie a flop or what?


SERIES PREMIERE Human Target, 8 p.m., Fox This is sort of like the anti-Paul Blart. Does that mean this show will be funny?

The Great American BBQ Showdown, 8 p.m., Food Funny, that's what we call July 4 at our house.

Bring It On: Fight to the Finish, 8 p.m., ABC Family Christina Milian leads East L.A. against Malibu in the fifth installment of this cheerleading saga. A little class warfare is great to share with your kids!

The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards, 8 p.m., NBC Now's your chance to test your plans for Oscar night, without really having to sit through the dull awards show.

SEASON PREMIERE 24, 9 p.m., Fox We put this one last, because watching Jack Bauer piece his life back together only to have it ripped apart again is the one thing we're really looking forward to tonight.
