On TV this weekend


Cult, 8 p.m., CW This series was canceled way back in the spring, but the CW has an entire summer to fill, so here are the episodes that never aired. That way you can just get into it before realizing it will never be on TV again.

Annie: It's the Hard-Knock Life, From Script to Stage, 9 p.m., (check local listings), PBS Ever wonder how a production of this orphan's story gets made? Watch and see, but realize Jay-Z is likely not involved.

Treehouse Masters, 10 p.m., Animal Planet A writer wants an office built in a tree, but is unhappy with the tree Pete says they should use. We think you should at least trust him on that issue.

Lidia Celebrates America, 10 p.m. (check local listings), PBS Lidia Bastianich's trek across the U.S. is one of the few first-run episodes of anything on tonight. But let's face it, if you're watching broadcast television on a Friday night, you were already planning on this.


Anna Nicole, 8 p.m., Lifetime A Lifetime biopic with Agnes Bruckner as the ill-fate Playmate and Martin Landau as the rich fossil she married? Sure, it's Saturday.

Banner 4th of July, 9 p.m., Hallmark Brooke White from American Idol is a record company owner who can't bring herself to sing anymore. Well of course not, if she's acting in Hallmark movies.

CMT's 20 Greatest Redneck Videos, 10 p.m., CMT Kid Rock shows off videos everyone in our circulation area probably loves. Hey, we're not saying that's a bad thing.


BET Awards '13, 8 p.m., BET Chris Tucker hosts an awards show for African-American performers, but we're all just waiting to see if Chris Brown and Drake get into a fight. Probably after the live show, we're guessing.

SEASON PREMIERE Dexter, 9 p.m., Showtime The last season commences, with Debra going off the deep end. Michael C. Hall's ex-wife Jennifer Carpenter was kind of doing that in real life, too.

SERIES PREMIERE Ray Donovan, 10 p.m., Showtime Liev ­Schreiber plays a guy who makes things right for rich people. Until his dad Jon Voight gets out of prison, that is. Angelina Jolie knows how that goes. — Joshua Gillin [email protected]
