On TV this weekend


SEASON FINALE The Chopping Block, 8 p.m., NBC Cooking show blah blah last two couples blah blah blah cook the meal of their lives to become rich and famous. We've seen that one before.

Torchwood: Children of Earth, 9 p.m., BBC America Have you been watching this all week instead of various other reruns? Then you won't mind explaining every minute detail to us during the show, because we didn't watch any of the previous four parts.


SERIES PREMIERE Being Human, 9 p.m., BBC America A vampire, a werewolf and a ghost are roommates in ... a drama? The BBC almost had us there.

SERIES FINALE Kings, 8 p.m., NBC Wow, that was one short reign, there, wasn't it?

Fuse Presents Kanye West: Live From the Chicago Theatre, 8 p.m., Fuse Better seats than we could get at the Ford Amphitheatre.

Malibu Shark Attack, 9 p.m., SyFy Not only are their poorly drawn CGI sharks, but they're brought on by a poorly drawn CGI tsunami. Land shark, indeed.


Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead, 8 p.m., BBC America Proud geeks know what's going on here, since David Tennant is starring in four more specials before quitting his role. But throw in Bionic Woman Michelle Ryan in this first installment and nerdlingers are in dork heaven.

MINISERIES PREMIERE The Storm, 9 p.m., NBC Death, destruction, CGI, wooden acting and Treat Williams give bad SyFy movies like Malibu Shark Attack a run for their money. But what's this? James Van Der Beek as a scientist? We have a winnah!

SEASON PREMIERE Robot Chicken, 11:30 p.m., Cartoon The wells of geekiness also run deep with this one. Of course, if you're watching Cartoon Network at 11:30 p.m. on a Sunday night, then you obviously have no job to get to Monday morning and will get all the jokes. That includes us.
