On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

Best Of Access 360 World Heritage, 6 p.m., NatGeo A highlight reel of all those UNESCO World Heritage sites you'll never get to see because of fear, sickness, prohibitive cost or natural disaster. Of course, that could describe almost every NatGeo show.

Undercover Boss, 8 p.m., CBS The CEO of KOA visits a few campgrounds to see how his employees are making out. By all means, head over to fix that leaky valve at the dump station and report back.

Magic City, 9 p.m., Starz Ben makes some plans to get rid of Ike forever, but first must host a Seder. He's probably going to be serving extra helpings of maror this year.

SATURDAY

Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret, 8 p.m., Lifetime Tania Raymonde from Lost plays the woman eventually convicted of stabbing her ex-boyfriend as many as 29 times, then shooting him in the head for good measure. Oops, spoilers.

666 Park Avenue, 9 p.m., ABC ABC wants to fill up its Saturdays with the last four episodes of this canceled show. At least Vanessa Williams fans will be a little happy.

SUNDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Whodunnit?, 9 p.m., ABC We saw this reality show back when it was a board game called Clue. Without Tim Curry it can't possibly be watchable.

SERIES PREMIERE Crossing Lines, 9 p.m., NBC Donald Sutherland is caught up in global crime conspiracies. He's come a long way from his Dirty Dozen days, we'd say.

SEASON PREMIERE Copper, 10 p.m., BBC America Donal Logue shows up as a ward leader who enables the rise of Tammany Hall after the Civil War. Well, what did you think a crooked Irish immigrant in 19th century New York would do?

SEASON FINALE Mad Men, 10 p.m., AMC Now that Matthew Weiner has confessed Megan Draper isn't going to be murdered at the end of this season, Internet conspiracy theorists will have to come up with a whole new set of parameters to defend their crackpot ideas. It probably involves a lot of booze and shirking personal ethics and responsibilities.
