On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Luck, 9 p.m., HBO Dustin Hoffman slums it on HBO for a while so he can play with the horsies. Expect 19 Emmy nominations.

SEASON FINALE Kourtney & Kim Take New York, 10 p.m., E! Will all of America come to its senses and realize this family has absolutely no reason to be on TV, or will Kim wear a bikini again and make everyone forget? Find out tonight!
