On TV this weekend
SEASON PREMIERE Shark Tank, 8 p.m., ABC More entrepreneurs try to sell their ideas to a group of investors. We have an idea: A machine that has letters on a keyboard, and when you punch the letters in sequence, they make words into things called scripts, which can be turned into new programs that aren't game shows. Nah, that'll never sell.
The Ricky Gervais Show, 9 p.m., HBO After watching Karl yammer on and on for weeks, we've come to the conclusion he's still immensely more likable than Ricky. How can you hate a guy who can tell stories about his dad scoring 30 crates of breath mints?
Confessions: Animal Hoarding, 10 p.m., Animal Planet A woman has a collection of pit bulls and pygmy goats, which one would think isn't a good combination, while another guy gets off drugs, only to become addicted to birds, rodents and reptiles. After buying all that pet food, drugs would be cheaper.
Scream of the Banshee, 9 p.m., Syfy A cameo by Lance Henriksen and Irish ghosts. Saturday is now accounted for.
Norm Macdonald: Me Doing Stand-Up, 11:30 p.m., Comedy Central Not to curse him or speak ill of the guy, but I seriously thought this dude was dead. To hear him mumble through his routine, I may have been right. But he's still funny.
SEASON FINALE Californication, 9 p.m., Showtime Rob Lowe is back to show us how sex addiction really works.
SEASON FINALE Alaska State Troopers, 9 p.m., NatGeo Two hours is awfully long for a state that really doesn't have all that many roads.
Lisa Lampanelli: Tough Love, 10 p.m., Comedy Central Just in case Norm Macdonald's special on Saturday night didn't have enough words bleeped out of it.
