On TV this weekend


Cult, 8 p.m., CW Nate has to decipher Kellian's manuscript. Siri is absolutely no help in situations like these.

Magic City, 9 p.m., Starz Ike tries to make Sy Berman an offer he can't refuse. That kind of thing usually works in the other direction.

Treehouse Masters, 10 p.m., Animal Planet The only reason we list this one every week is because it's one of the only shows with first-run episodes every Friday. So watch them make a treehouse with a barbecue grill and a dumbwaiter in it. Oh, and a fire pole.

SEASON PREMIERE Comedy Bang! Bang!, 10 p.m., IFC Andy Samberg proves that Fred Armisen isn't the only one who can headline an off-kilter basic-cable comedy show. Except, well, Samberg is only a guest star.


SEASON PREMIERE Being Human, 10 p.m., BBC America The roommates do battle with the devil. And we don't mean whomever sets the rates for premium cable.

SERIES FINALE 666 Park Avenue, 9 p.m., ABC Speaking of which, say goodbye to this show, which had the unfortunate fate of being burned off in limbo after cancellation. Don't count on a resurrection.

SERIES PREMIERE Beware the Batman, 10 p.m., Cartoon Another animated show 10 times better than the '90s live-action movies. Especially that one with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Wanda Sykes Presents Herlarious, 10 p.m., OWN Wanda does the funny on O's network. Finally, something worth watching!


SERIES PREMIERE Adam Richman's Fandemonium, 10 p.m., Travel Still recovering from his Man vs. Food days, Adam interviews fans who throw down major cash on costumes and food at various events. An Adam Richman costume is pretty cheap — just T-shirts and hair gel, really.

SEASON PREMIERE The Newsroom, 10 p.m., HBO Aaron Sorkin's media fantasy returns. No matter what you think about the show, it's still more informative than CNN.
