On TV this weekend


SERIES FINALE The Revolution, 2 p.m., ABC Good Afternoon America will be replacing this show about … well, it was about something or other. Nobody watched it, so nobody cares.

Undercover Boss, 8 p.m., CBS The owner of 1-800-Flowers learns his own company actually has brick-and-mortar stores. Well, we didn't know that, but you'd think he would.

Whale Wars, 9 p.m., Animal Planet Wait, wait, wait … these do-gooders are boarding whaling ships now? Good thing the Japanese don't have Navy SEALs of their own.

Corey Holcomb: Your Way Ain't Working, 10:30 p.m., Showtime This guy did a voice on The Cleveland Show. You'll have to watch to find out which. Or Google it.


Coke Zero 400 at Daytona Powered by Coca-Cola, 7:30 p.m., Fox Here's a three-hour reminder that we all should stay off I-4 east of Lakeland for the rest of the weekend.

SEASON PREMIERE Dog Whisperer, 8 p.m., NatGeo Cesar Millan is calling it quits after this season, but not before enjoying enough status to call Hugh Hefner and Kelsey Grammer bad dog owners.

MINISERIES FINALE Twenty Twelve, Midnight, BBC America The run-up to the London Olympics has this mockumentary facing a real crisis: The end of scripted TV shows before the nonstop NBC coverage begins.


SEASON PREMIERE Inspector Lewis, 9 p.m., PBS The series about U.K. detectives returns. It's like an updated Cagney & Lacey, if they were two hot, sophisticated British men.

SERIES PREMIERE Big Ang, 9 p.m., VH1 Mob Wives' Angie Raiola gets her own spinoff set in a distant land no one has ever visited. You know, Staten Island.

Talking Dead, 9 p.m., AMC Chris Hardwick babbles for an hour before a black-and-white version of the series pilot airs. He could discuss working in some awesome zombie executions, like crushing someone's head with a salt lick, like the excellent Walking Dead video game does.
