On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

Happy Endings, 8 p.m., ABC Let's hope this witty sitcom's move to Fridays doesn't signal its own (un)happy ending.

Shark Tank, 9 p.m., ABC An inventor pitches an idea to keep stuff from falling into the gap between your car's front seat and center console. Think of everything you'll be able to do with all those rescued Corn Nuts and straw wrappers!

Tanked, 9 p.m., Animal Planet The guys visit Saint Leo University in Pasco County to build a lionfish aquarium. Because their mascot is the lion, you see. Shouldn't they build a lion cage instead?

The Gospel of Judas: Revealed, 8 p.m., NatGeo Wait, NatGeo is airing a special that dares to suggest Judas Iscariot was some sort of a hero? Those Judases!

SATURDAY

Doctor Who, 8 p.m., BBC America We're back for the second half of the seventh season. Finally, we can stop watching reruns of Torchwood!

Secret Life of Money, 9 p.m., Discovery Some secrets are okay being kept. Or did you want to know what the meth addict with the weeping sores on his lips did with it when he went to Burger King?

SUNDAY

SEASON FINALE The Bible, 8 p.m., History Channel The Satan actor who looks like Obama is defeated, but only for now.

SEASON PREMIERE Game of Thrones, 9 p.m., HBO You've been waiting for the ''A Storm of Swords'' story line to start, so here you go. With a title like that, this is sure to be a quiet and relaxed season.

Ben Hur, 8 p.m., Ovation An adaptation of a period piece that didn't need to be remade. Seriously, if you make an excellent sword-and-sandals epic in 1959, it's not like adding Hugh Bonneville from Downton Abbey in 2013 is going to make it any better.

MINISERIES PREMIERE Mr. Selfridge, 9 p.m., PBS Jeremy Piven tries to serious it up in this eight-parter about the famous English department store. Notice we wrote serious and not good.

SEASON FINALE The Walking Dead, 9 p.m., AMC Given that readers of the comic know the story line would normally be about to take a turn for the grisly, we have to wonder a few things: Will the Governor return? Will Andrea wise up? Will Rick return to reality? Will Judith ever become a true plot device? Will a black character survive? Pressing questions, all.
