On TV this weekend
Wife Swap, 8 p.m., ABC A California mom sends her kids to theme parks instead of school because she thinks it's a better educational experience. Back in our day, they called those field trips.
Whale Wars, 9 p.m., Animal Planet Whew; For a second there, we got this show's title confused with most episodes of Wife Swap.
SERIES PREMIERE The MOM Show, 10 p.m., WEtv A talk show about motherhood on at 10 p.m. on a Friday night? Yeah, we're sure the ratings will be through the roozzzzzzz.
SERIES PREMIERE Primal Grill, 5 p.m., PBS Steven Raichlen hosts a cooking show for people who like to cook dead flesh on an open flame. And that's everyone, right?
SERIES FINALE Pushing Daisies, 10 p.m., ABC Yeah, those new episodes we were showing you? We're out of them. Suckers!
SEASON PREMIERE True Blood, 9 p.m., HBO We're not too familiar with this show, but we imagine it to be Twilight for grownups. Wow, nudity and murder; who knew that sold?
SERIES PREMIERE Hammertime, 10 p.m., A&E Wow, has it really been two decades since the whole puffy pants, giant eyeglasses, words-in-your-haircut phase? We'd ask if he'd trade all his money to have those days back, but it's really a pointless argument.
Denise Richards: It's Complicated, 10:30 p.m., E! When did Denise make a movie? And she's promoting it, too? Now we've heard everything.
