On TV this weekend


World Cup Soccer, 9:30 a.m., ESPN The U.S. takes on Slovenia in what should be an easy three points in Group C. That means this will be a nail-biter.

Friday Night Lights, 8 p.m., NBC New quarterback Vince may have brought a pistol to school. Calling the QB a gunslinger is a figure of speech, you know.

Miley Cyrus in London: Live at the O2, 8 p.m., ABC Be sure to keep Perez Hilton away from this one.

SERIES PREMIERE Battle of the Wedding Designers, 10 p.m., TLC As if watching demanding, overbearing brides screech for what they want wasn't bad enough, now we have their diva-esque planners doing the same.

Miami Medical, 10 p.m., CBS A boating accident full of people with complicated personal lives threatens to sink the crew. Get it? Sink? See what we did there? Eh.


Housecat Housecall, 10:30 a.m., Animal Planet Celebrity guests are always a win for these shows, but Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba? Do you really want to know about her live-in boyfriend and their five cats?

SEASON FINALE The Ultimate Fighter 11, 9 p.m., Spike It says something when the previously scheduled main event had to be canceled because of injuries. And that something is, this may not be the best career choice.


SERIES FINALE 'Til Death, 7 p.m., Fox Let's go out on a high note, with Joy and Eddie lying to each other. It's about marriage, after all.

SEASON PREMIERE Leverage, 9 p.m., TNT Besides the whole prison-escape scenario, we're watching to see George Clooney's girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis.

SERIES FINALE The Tudors, 9 p.m., Showtime After all his marriages, meddling in the church and consolidation of power, ol' Henry is done in by Type II diabetes. Oops, spoiler alert.

SERIES PREMIERE Scoundrels. 9 p.m., ABC Virginia Madsen plays Ma Barker when her hubby gets sent to the hoosegow. It pays better than voice work for Justice League.

SERIES PREMIERE The Real L Word, 10 p.m., Showtime It's like that other show about lesbians, but as a reality series. It's much cheaper this way, in every sense of the word.
