On TV this weekend


Wife Swap, 8 p.m., ABC For the 100th episode, a science-obsessed fam from Colorado trades with psychic-wannabes from the Sunshine State. Just bring out the steel cage, already.

Friday Night Lights, 9 p.m., NBC Hoo, dawg, the Panthers are gonna be on tha tee-vee! That's that perty pitcher box all the furniture's pointed at in our livin' room!

Independence Day, 9 p.m., TBS Old as dust and on all the time, but let's take a moment to relive the heady days of the mid-'90s, when fake aliens were the worst thing we had to fear, and Randy Quaid could save us all.


The Naked Brothers Band, 8 p.m., Nickelodeon We don't know. It's something your kids will want to watch, apparently. Especially when Rosalina comes back with a French boyfriend.

Will Ferrell: You're Welcome America. A Final Night With George W. Bush Live From Broadway, 9 p.m., HBO No comment on the subject matter, lest we get hate mail. But we will say we're glad we don't have to pay $125 to watch someone make fun of Dubya.

SEASON PREMIERE The Graham Norton Show, 10 p.m., BBC America An interview with Fergie. No, not that one, the one with lasting fame.


SERIES PREMIERE Kings, 8 p.m., NBC The guy from Deadwood is king of a land called Gilboa in this fantasy soap that tackles modern-day America from an off-angle. Like King of the Hill, but serious. Speaking of which ...

King of the Hill, 8:30 p.m., Fox Kate Walsh guest stars as this series cruises into the finish line. The jokes have to be getting old when the catalyst of an episode is Peggy trying to buy an album on cassette.

Desperate Housewives, 9 p.m., ABC Edie starts snooping into Dave's past. It's about time. We still don't know why she didn't do that in the first place.

Comedy Central Roast of Larry the Cable Guy, 10 p.m., Comedy Central Because he was born in Nebraska and lives in Florida, like a certain TV capsule writer we all know. — Joshua Gillin
