On TV this weekend


Her Story, 8 p.m., ESPN SportsCenter's Hannah Storm covers female athletes and their unusual stories. This week's most unusual story: teen surfer Bethany Hamilton keeps getting up on the board, despite losing her left arm in a shark attack.

MTV Special, 8 p.m., MTV If Tyson Ritter from the All-American Rejects is covering a party in Panama City Beach, it must be spring break.

Dollhouse, 9 p.m., Fox Eliza Dushku is hot and all, but we liked this show better a few years ago when it had Jessica Alba in it and it was called Dark Angel.


World Figure Skating Championships, 9 p.m., NBC You've got a year until Vancouver, so why not learn who Alissa Czisny is right now?

SERIES PREMIERE The Penguins of Madagascar, 9:30 p.m., Nickelodeon As if two Madagascar movies weren't bad enough, we have to put up with a spinoff, too. Why is it on at 9:30, anyway? Kids aren't supposed to be up that late.


SERIES PREMIERE The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, 8 p.m., HBO Jill Scott stars as the Botswanan hero of Alexander McCall Smith's series of best-selling novels. A feelgood mystery doesn't sound quite right, but whatever.

SERIES PREMIERE Any Dream Will Do, 8 p.m., BBC America The winner of tonight's episode wins the lead in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. So it's about high school, then?

SERIES PREMIERE G4 Underground, 9 p.m., G4 A documentary series about real-life superheroes who put on capes and masks and fight crime. We already saw Watchmen — those people are looney.

SERIES PREMIERE The Mighty Boosh, 1 a.m., Cartoon In a rare Adult Swim show that lasts an entire half-hour, the Brits bring us a glam rocker, a genius and a jazzman who work in a zoo — the network's Williams Street offices in Atlanta.
