On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

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.

SATURDAY

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?

SUNDAY

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.
