On TV this weekend


SERIES PREMIERE Nat Geo Amazing!, 7 p.m., NatGeo A doc series showcasing the most unusual or astonishing parts of our world, which apparently includes urban penguins, flying cars and samurai swordsmen. We're still impressed with the envelope-less deposits at our bank's ATM.

Wife Swap, 8 p.m., ABC A family that got spooked about the Mayan 2012 prophecy moved to the middle of nowhere and takes survivalist classes while a California mom thinks her kid will be the next great golfer. The common thread: Neither of them is right.

SEASON PREMIERE Eureka, 9 p.m., SyFy Nothing will get Carter over relationship woes like an unscheduled trip to a dangerous military installation. It's like therapy, but with less discussion and more life-threatening obstacles.

SERIES PREMIERE Haven, 10 p.m., SyFy An FBI agent goes to a small Maine town where the populace has supernatural powers in a new series based on a Stephen King novella. You know, the one about the supernatural stuff in the small Maine town.


SERIES PREMIERE The Bridge, 8 p.m., CBS The eyeball network imports another cop show from Canada. They're like regular cop shows, but the officers are way more polite.

SEASON PREMIERE How Do I Look?, 8 p.m., Style Jeannie Mai continues to insult whatever is in your closet, and you continue to watch it.

The Hooters 2010 International Swimsuit Pageant, 9 p.m., Spike How does wearing less than your original Hooters uniform give you hope of gaining respect, ladies? Are you still unhappy you didn't get in the calendar?


SERIES PREMIERE Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch, 9 p.m., VH1 The Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver and Dancing With the Stars loser tries his luck at finding a girlfriend. We can't think of a better way to locate the future Mrs. Ochocinco.

SERIES PREMIERE The Glades, 10 p.m., A&E With all those gators out in the swamp, it must be hard for a homicide detective to find bodies.

SERIES PREMIERE Childrens Hospita, 10:30 p.m., Cartoon Network Leave it to Adult Swim to create a hospital show we'll actually watch. Filling it with people like Rob Corddry, Michael Cera, Megan Mullally and Henry Winkler, then making it just 11 minutes long, doesn't hurt.
