On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

Ghost Whisperer, 8 p.m., CBS A ghost spills his guts on a radio show about how he died. What Sirius station is that?

SEASON PREMIERE Shark Tank, 9 p.m., ABC A clue you're not cut out for business: Your salad dressing doesn't sell because the packaging offends people. We're assuming there's a reference about "tossing your salad."

NUMB3RS, 10 p.m., CBS The team investigates the theft of some scratch-off lottery tickets, but then a perpetrator who was a former lottery winner gets killed in a botched robbery. These story lines are so unbelievable: No one actually wins the lottery.

SATURDAY

NFL Football, 8 p.m., NBC The Philadelphia Eagles head to Dallas for a rematch with the Cowboys, but this time in the playoffs. Once again, we can't have both teams lose, so we're not rooting for anyone.

The Wishing Well, 9 p.m., Hallmark Any made-for-TV movie that stars Jordan Ladd (Grindhouse) as a journalist obviously doesn't know anything about the industry. That must be why it's on Hallmark.

SUNDAY

The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special: In 3-D! On Ice!, 8:30 p.m., Fox It's hard to believe this series is celebrating 20 years with its 450th episode (at least 50 of which were actually good). What isn't hard to believe is that they're doing it with a documentary about the show, which should focus only on episodes up through, say, 1997.

SEASON PREMIERE Ax Men, 9 p.m., History How is this a show about history? Are they discussing the commercial importance of swamp logging to the economy of central and south Florida?

SEASON PREMIERE Chuck, 9 p.m., NBC Chuck flunks out of spy school, mostly because he couldn't make "Bartowski ... Chuck Bartowski" sound cool.
