On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

SEASON PREMIERE Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta 9 p.m., TLC Mother against daughter, daughter against grandmother … tempers in the South shall rise yet again.

SERIES PREMIERE Say Yes to the Dress: Bridesmaids, 10 p.m., TLC Just a hunch, but this Atlanta-based spin-off probably won't contain as many poop jokes as the film Bridesmaids.

SERIES PREMIERE Torchwood: Miracle Day, 10 p.m., Starz In the latest iteration of this cult British sci-fi hit, people stop dying. It's like the opposite of Life After People — by which we mean it sounds watchable.

Outrageous Food, 10 p.m., Food Network The worst part about ordering an 800-pound burger? When they give you only 300 ketchup packets, and you clearly asked for 400.

SEASON PREMIERE Monster Fish: Predators of the Outback, 10 p.m., NatGeo Who's baiting the hook for whom?

SATURDAY

A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!, 8 p.m., Nickelodeon If Jason Alexander were our fairy godfather, we'd file a complaint with the Lollipop Guild, no question.

Celebrity Ghost Stories, 9 p.m., Bio Mindy McCready says she sees ghosts. Or is that all the substance abuse?

SUNDAY

Secrets of SEAL Team Six, 9 p.m., Discovery Since the identities of the folks in this military supergroup are the international poster boys for American bad-assery, it's likely no one is actually interviewed, but boy, will it be neat. Hey, did you clear copyright with Disney?

An ABC Diane Sawyer Exclusive: The Jaycee Dugard Interview, 9 p.m., ABC Thanks to Casey Anthony, we have renewed interest in tragically bizarre stories involving children. Difference is, this one had a marginally happier ending.

SERIES PREMIERE Famous Food, 10 p.m., VH1 Reality show "stars" try to win cooking challenges to become part-owners in a restaurant. Because this 15 minutes is almost up, y'know.

SEASON PREMIERE Curb Your Enthusiasm, 10 p.m., HBO We don't know much about the eighth season other than some Girl Scouts are angry with Larry about something. Cookies may or may not be involved.

SERIES PREMIERE The Indestructibles, 10 p.m., NatGeo It's not really that these people who survived horrible accidents are truly indestructible, but they sure can take a lot of punishment.
